Collar x Malice – Missing Stories -Case 01- Aiji Yanagi

yanagiaijiEDIT3

So just like before, there’s a booklet that came with the Collar x Malice Switch version that has short stories related to each character’s pasts. I decided to translate them (I’m on quarantine so I have nothing better to do… haha…ha).  If you haven’t beaten the game I recommend doing so before reading.  This is Aiji Yanagi’s story and just a note for those who didn’t know, Yanagi does have an older brother that’s present in the FD. It’s not a spoiler but he wasn’t in the first game.

estearisa’s Top 10 Otome Games (as of 2020)

top10otomebanner ver 3

This is different from what I normally post but I’ve always wanted to do a sort of ‘Top 10 Otome Games’ I’ve played, but never got a around to it (plus I wasn’t sure what my top 10 even was). But after much thought about it, I finally came up with my own top 10. Obviously, this is my own top 10, and rightfully so its my own opinion and you don’t have to agree with it! My criteria is mostly based on how much I enjoyed it, not necessarily how good it is plot-wise (but a good plot is certainly a factor with enjoyment). This list will probably change over time too. I’ve played quite a few otome games and there are still games I’d like to play but haven’t had a chance or Otomate just hasn’t ported it to a current gen console yet. Also, these are based on the Japanese version of the games, but some of them are available in English. and I’ll make sure to say which ones are and aren’t!

She tries to convince Limbo (known as a corrupted lawyer) in the body of someone else in the past that he’s going to die and she witnessed it herself.

Bustafellows [DEMO] Review

OGP

So, this game is not out yet but I decided why not review the demo for those who maybe haven’t played it but are considering buying this game, or just for those who are curious about the game in general. This is obviously not the actual review of the game yet since it releases on December 19th. This is also based on the mobile demo since there is no Switch demo as of yet.

幻奏喫茶アンシャンテ Gensou Kissa Enchante – Review/Summary

ogp

The heroine is a girl named Kotone who inherits her grandfather’s cafe after he dies. Upon entering it, she looks over the entire cafe having nostalgic feelings coming back from when she was young and lived with her grandfather. She then finds a strange room with “staff only” on it. When she enters it, she finds a huge extravagant door that has a “closed” plate next to it. After changing it to “open” an other-worldy man appears and says he finally found her and embraces her closely while telling her he’s been waiting for her.

I know this game is coming out in English, so you can use my skip to non-spoiler thoughts if you don’t want to spoil anything.
