This is not a fandisk but rather a sequel to Piofiore no Banshou. There are three different types of episode types such as -BURLONE-, -ALTERNATIVA-, and -HENRI-. The -BURLONE- episode is the after story of the main five characters (Dante, Nicola, Gilbert, Yang and Orlok). -ALTERNATIVA- is based on the ~FINALE END~ of the original game where there’s an incident that occurs and the mafia all join together to find the mastermind. Lastly, there’s the -HENRI- episode which is the after story for Henri’s ending in the original game (this also ties together with the -ALTERNATIVA- episode). There’s also an advent calendar type menu where you watch various scenes until you unlock the -ALTERNATIVA- episode.

So Otomate officially opened their site for Cupid Parasite today so I decided to give some more background and details on the game itself. I don’t normally translate these, but this whole story is such a fun concept (and what do I have better to do…? haha…ha.).

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.

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!
