R18 Otome Game Review: Sanzen sekai yuugi ~MultiUniverse Myself~

This review has been sitting in my drafts for a while, but it was Girls Dynamics’ miraculous return from the dead with upcoming Princess Britania that finally got me around finishing it! There doesn’t seem to be any reviews for the full game in English, which I found a little surprising at first… and a little less surprising once I actually finished the game.

In year 20xx humanity has undergone a vast change with the realization of the Multiverse theory. To general public, this simply means the existence of a parallel universe and only a select few are privy to the hidden secret. One of them is bounty hunter Tomoe Nakahara, who after a hitman gig finds out that the parallel universe contains a counterpart for every living person. Both of them are connected so that if one of them dies in their universe, the other one immediately loses their life in another. Thus Tomoe sets on a journey to find her counterpart in the parallel world, setting a bigger series of events in motion.

R18 Otome Game Review: Bocchimusume × Produce-keikaku.

Almost two years without an update, but never fear, for I have returned with a review for Bocchimusume × Produce-keikaku. (ボッチムスメ×プロデュース計画。) by Kalmia8!
The protagonist Ema Tachibana is quite literally a huge loner without a single friend. Because her intimidating stature and strong facial features draw uncalled attention, she tries to live her life as low-profile as possible. However, her uniqueness catches the eye of Miki Hiraizumi, an aspiring fashion designer declaring he’s found his ultimate muse in Ema. Together with his photographer friend Saitou Shinjou they decide on turning gloomy Ema into a world-famous high fashion model for Miki’s line, but they soon find whipping her uncooperative butt to shape will take more effort than they thought!

As of July 2016, MangaGamer has announced they will be localizing Bocchimusume as Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome. As far as I know, this is the first R-18 otome game officially released in English, so I highly recommend western otome gamers to give Kalmia8 and MangaGamer their support!

The review will contain slight spoilers for the game etc. So, without further ado, レッツボッチ!

Otome Game Review: Watashi no Real wa Juujitsu Shisugiteiru

This time I’ll be reviewing WataJuu (私のリアルは充実しすぎている), a free doujin otome game by TetraScope.

With her good looks, top grades and a pleasant personality, second-year high school student Nozomi Anesaki is admired by everyone in the school. Behind her seemingly flawless exterior, however, is an otaku who spends all her free time watching anime and playing otome games. To hide her embarrassing real personality, she volunteers at the school in the student council, helps the teachers and other students with whatever they ask her to do and wakes up early every morning to perform her lengthy beauty routine.

This review is spoiler-free. I’ll also refrain using any other event CGs than the ones on WataJuu’s site to respect the creator’s wishes.

After finding out the party was arranged so her parents would be able to get Yuriko marry into money to save the house, she despairs and wants to run away. However, the night gets interrupted by a group of people who start ravaging around the house and try to attack Yuriko, before she gets saved by a man she has never seen before. The game starts unfolding from there, with Yuriko simultaneously trying to get her house out of debt and unraveling the mystery behind her family.

This review is spoiler-free.
