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!

In the fictional city called New Seig (inspired by New York City) we have our heroine Teuta who is a freelance journalist and has the power to go back in time in the body of another person. 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. This is in this same world as the game Sidekicks! and even has cameos here and there.

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.

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.

Taiga (CV: Okamoto Nobuhiko) is one of the suitors with the least amount of motivation to actually try and win Hibari’s heart. He loves to gamble and his favorite saying is to “win it all in one go”. However, his bad eating and sleeping habits don’t bode well with Hibari. He also goes out a lot which annoys Hibari even further. In addition, each time Hibari interacts with Taiga, they always argue.

Ichiya (CV: Toriumi Kousuke) is the so-called “flirt” of the candidates that continuously comes up with cliche catchphrases that don’t effect Hibari whatsoever. He is the most skilled in cooking and continuously conjures up special menus for Hibari for her every meal. He’ll make her something exotic or super fancy according to what he believes her tastes are. However, this ends up driving Hibari nuts when all she wants to do is eat normal food rather than this fancy stuff that Ichiya comes up with.
