Zakuro is cute! Cute!

I finished Kobashi's 深愛 and 歪愛 good endings, I'll report back once I'm done with the other two. I thought they were interesting but I'm getting a little burnt out. It's so much to read. It might also be because I've been busy with other games and now that Binary Star is here it's tempting me.

Can I just say that it took me about half of the route to figure out that マリス was supposed to be malice

I'm thinking of importing my first Vita otoge soon. Any recommendations? I'm pretty abysmal at Japanese but I'm getting better. I was thinking of KLAP!! because I'm just so tempted by the gimmick. Money isn't really an issue right now since it's a treat to myself.

Seeing her get flustered is just as satisfying as the guys. Her blush sprites kill me.

So did delicious brown meet your expectations? Since Kobashi's route has the highest plot concentration the others might be easier on you now.
Apart from Hinose's. Hinose's is confusing as fuck. Don't expect to understand everything that's going on until the end(or even after the end).

>Can I just say that it took me about half of the route to figure out that マリス was supposed to be malice
Don't worry, you're not alone. It took me until my third route because in Kuze's and Mitsuhara's it comes up a lot less. I sure felt dumb.

You know they've released patches before, right?
>>
>>127579404
Aren't they the person who translated the dot kareshi games and tokimemo gs3?
I liked those, the translation wasn't very awkward at all and I remember minimal errors.
Then again that probably means they took a lot of liberties. What's that saying again? You can either translate accurately or make it sound good, you can't do both?
>>
>>127581593
DotKare yes, TMGS3 no.
>>
>>127581593
A literal translation isn't necessarily something to strive for. You can try to translate something literally word for word, but you're going to end up with something that sounds unnatural, maybe even robotic, and thus most likely failing to convey the feeling of the original work. You can make a translation read well without going to the opposite extreme.

Not that I'm defending any of those particular TL projects, of course, just sayin'.
>>
>>127570510
Not that anon, but is Reine that bad? I was thinking about getting a vita just to play it.
>>
>>127586050
There's like 40 bad ends or something, the story is a mess and the system is infurriating. Music and art are the only redeeming points.
Not worth the money.
>>
>>127586050
To be honest, I haven't played it that far yet.
But the main problem is the 'battle system'.
It's a rather frequent, about 10-20min lasting conversation with always the same background music. According to another anon, this lasts throughout the whole game.
Also, according to another anon, the characters become unlikable to the end because of their actions.

You could always read some reviews on Amazon if you want more impressions.
But you should get a Vita anyways, there are tons of good games on it, and the same artist is doing new art for Wand of Fortune R, which gets released on the Vita soon.

Because of this, they're basically screwing fans that actually care about their games. Now both fans and other consumers are more likely to postpone their purchase in wait for a sale and buy it once it’s dirt cheap.

If they continue this trend of having sales every month or so, eventually more people that are not the target market will impulsively purchase their games. Although a sale will lead to a wider audience, this may confuse the creators–if people actually like otome games at all and if they should even put the effort into localizing them when they can profit on localizing other games instead.

A sale means more money to them, sure, but constant sales creates a bad image for the company, not like it wasn't already. Well, do you guys actually care about Amnesia anyway?

D3P obviously needs the sale though.

With some anon there being so negative it's difficult to know if a game deemed as shit is really shit or if it's just flawed but still enjoyable.

For example Norn9 is said to be bad and still I really liked it even with the convoluted plot...
>>
>>127637019
That seems to be it. Pretty neat, Anon.

I wonder if they will ever include more of that or any other kind of motion and whatnot to the rest of the game. Do you guys like the gameplay as it is now or would you want it changed?

I don't know that I would fault Yumeiro's rhythm section. Honestly, it's nice to have one more simple.
>>
>>127619814
I ahaven't enough games to really have a meaningful opinion.

But Okita was also my favorite in Hakuouki.

>>
>>127639549
You can always check other sites if you have contradicting opinions or confusion as to whether our opinions are informative/meaningful to you.
I trust /blog/ more than other sites that may be biased.

As for Norn9, I think the story is bad, but the actual game itself can be enjoyable on some parts. That is not enough for me to recommend the game to someone though.
>>
>>127640195
Okita really was so great.. I also really loved how Chizuru developed in the end too, I loved their dynamic. He also had the best central enemy imo since you never really got to know about Kaoru outside of Okitas route.

I feel you, Hijikata's felt the most like a chore to get through for me, though I liked seeing his more goofy side in the fandisks, and it made me like him a lot more. Chikages route really was short, I'm also probably in the minority but I was actually hoping for him to kidnap Chizuru and force her to be his waifu. I was even expecting it while playing his route.

Yeah, Hakuoki was kinda one of my first otoge's, now that I know Otomate and Shinobu I know better. Still would have been nice for him to actually kidnap her once, maybe for a fandisk scenario and the other guys come and rescue her or something other than the whole "I used you being my waifu as an excuse to play with the Shinsengumi" thing in his route.
Oh boy, there's a ton of R18 otoges where the husbando's rape the MC. If an r18 otoge has bad ends it's pretty much guaranteed rape will be involved at some point. Some I can remember off the top of my head with rape are Under The Moon and Trick or Alice

Pretty good. Great music, beautiful sprites, fun mechanic with the mero mero magic, lots of amazing guys to choose from.
CGs are a bit iffy at times and the story is not worth shit. But the majority of the game focuses on the boy and not the story so it's okay.
Play it for the guys, not the story.

So I've never played Hakuoki games before and bought one in a whim yesterday bc 3ds store sales. I don't know anything about the characters and of course the first dude that really get my dokis going is Shinpachi (well Heisuke too). Then I find out you cant have him. WHY.

Learn Japanese and then someday you can play his route in the remake.

Speaking of, it's kind of fucked up that Otomate didn't mention that the remake was split into parts and that they were going to release a second game after everyone played the first and realized that the routes ended in cliffhangers.

I answered already last thread, to sum it up: the matches are depicted poorly and the daily choosing of practice partner is a waste of time that makes going for each boy a drag, but while those factors bring down the game, it was still enjoyable for the cute/fun characters.

Is there a point in keeping multiple copies of the same SSR in Idolish7? I keep running out of space.

>>127711172

So far no. I've got a couple dupes that I use regularly because I got them early on and they're max level/stats so it'd be dumb not to use them, but beyond that dupes aren't very useful. My tactic lately has been to not redeem catalogues except for the cards I want immediately (since that inventory does not seem to be limited).
>>
>>127711172
On the general topic of that, do any of you max level your SR (or just RR) and lower cards and then discard them for the sake of space?
>>
>>127712323

I just feed them to my team of super Nagis. No point in using anything less than an SSR unless you're just starting and can't fill a whole team.

I don't like Kakeru much but the one I really don't like is Sakuya.
Ouji and osananajimmi, effeminate, and yanderish.
So many bad points added to the fact he was trying to control Mikoto.

He's not that horrible, he just plays on trope I personnally hate.

Akito and Natsuhiko are the best routes for Nanami and Mikoto (through I still think Itsuki is the best husbando of the lot), Senri's is Koharu only good route, (well if I disregard the troll route of Masa turning into an harem master , it was kinda good).

The thing that pissed me off the most is how much they focused on Kakeru. You know the 'common route' scene where Kakeru, Masamune and Senri are picking peaches together on one of the higher floors and then fall down (Senri jumps down).
They took that scene, let Masamune do some work in the background and Senri stay in his room, Koharu falls down in a way that looks like it hurts, and Kakeru jumps after her and saves her.

I didn't expect anything good from the anime, but this is worse than I imagined. I don't think I'll be able to suffer through more episodes, especially with that quality everywhere.

The trailers made it look like the anime would be mostly about Koharu on Kakeru's route, I'm not that surprised. It's just a bit underwhelming that they skipped some character introductions.
Akito is always kinda edgy until 3 chapters in or something.

The worst is that is a game CG, they just had to redraw it.

It was guaranteed to be shit anyway, considering the convoluted plot is no good for an adaptation.

I hope they'll do a better job with C:R like they did for Hakuouki. The Lupin route could make a decent anime plot line.
>>
>>127771184
The only Hakuouki adaptations I enjoyed were the first movie and Reimeiroku. The movies had some amazing bits of animation, unexpected from DEEN.

I'm losing hope for C:R's anime, while the plot is complete, it's filled with details that you'd need to focus on the other guys instead of Lupin for a while, if you don't do that then everything will look easily handled. C:R could be decent with 24 episodes but 12 will make it horrible.
Animation is guaranteed to be below average since it's an otome and the designs are too detailed for anime.

Heroine is really great. She's also one of the demon lords (or whatever their name is), so she doesn't know very much about the human world, which makes some really cute scenes.
The boys - as always - depend on your tastes. But tsundere (the red-hair guy) is by far the best. Kimura Ryouhei really nailed him. The rest are okay, I personally also liked the hikki. Green is a bit questionable, though I can't really talk about a lot without spoilering. Haven't played the secret route yet.
The cat is quite funny. Best mascot. The other four demon lords are good as well, especially the green haired one by Tachibana.

In my dateshit games (inccluding FE awakening) I noticed that green often appeals me the most while the white haired ones make me uncomfortable with their yanderish creepy way (except in the dialovers anime where White (Subaru?) was the least worst boy).

As the newcomer to the ship, the introduction episode being from Koharu's perspective is the most fitting and natural course to take, also making the Kakeru focus pretty inevitable, too. To have attempted to introduce anything more would have been biting off more than they can chew (they'll have plenty of time to make it a jumbled mess later). I felt they actually handled the first episode quite well, which is surprising. I'm curious how they're going to manage to fit Sorata into the show now, though he was mostly irrelevant outside of epilogue anyway. However, I am disappointed about the change in ship design. I would've liked to see the design from the game brought to life, and I agree it gave a comfier impression.

Poor visuals aside, episode one was better than expected. The OP and ED songs were beautiful, waiting warmly for the full versions.

>>127810917

Check with the Chinese or something for audio and video clips?

I was playing and hoping that more features and real music would be added. I always thought the mini games were the starting point and it would expand into something else, something that allowed us to have daily gameplay with the Utas.

Is it too much to want something like that for Uta, or it is better to limit them to what we have now? I think it could give players the sense of more time with their favorites in spite of VN writing.

Princes are good for anime fodder since they were never screwed up, but only their first game is worth it. Senpai games made me truly love Utapri and generally I like their songs a lot more. Honestly, I think Broccoli will milk the senpais to the point of no repair soon enough too, so I'll enjoy what's good for now.

Debut is truly a bad game for both of the groups.

It's absolutely shit.
I understand that focusing on one route is necessary, but come on, they could at least have tried to introduce all the characters.
Not to forget that the ship changes they made makes it pretty shitty. I loved the environment in the game, but in the anime everything is kinda grey, big, harder. The cute little sea next to grass now is big enough to have a bridge and boats. Why would this be necessary?

Not to forget the biggest fault, it looks like shit. Some backgrounds are nice but nice backgrounds are wasted if the character designs are butt ugly.

All video game to anime adaptations should just dick around and be goofy like the Kamigami anime.

>>127922287
I entirely agree with you. Kamigami was great, and another example I can think of was the first episode of P4 Golden where the MC was obviously on NG+. Fewer game adaptions need to stop trying to sell the entirety of the story and sell the characters and give a feel of the premise.

>>
>>127928881
>isn't that what happened to Arcana Famigilia?

They actually REMOVED gags. Like, they would take a skit from the game but not the part that made it funny. And then they forcibly shoved Liberta and Nova in scenes where they weren't in before and made them out to be more like generic genki/stoic eternal rivals or something.

Like >>127976509 said the game is really bland. If you like Atelier games for the Alchemy, then you really won't like the alchemy system in this because it's dumbed down and feels like a waste of time normally. Thus, it got really boring fast. I mean, half the fun about the Atelier games was crafting imo. The characters really weren't as interesting as the ones from the regular Ateliers either. If you hate the alchemy in the regular games though, I'd say might as well try it out and see what you think of it. But for me it felt like the soul of the Atelier games was sucked dry in Elkrone.

It's possible that his agency isn't related to any VN producers or his contract forbids it. Alternately maybe he doesn't have the requisite skills (game VA is pretty different and arguably more difficult because you have to act by yourself).

I can probably see why, if they meant that their tits were taking up too much focus. For games about fapping to dudes you'd think the dudes would be the focus in sex scenes, but there are still games that put more focus on the girls.
>>
>>128051125

Most R18 games are still awful about that. Go look at any of the H CGs from >>128044728, MC and her tits are front-and-center and most of the time she's the only one undressed. If they were cropped just slightly they'd look like CGs from any old eroge for dudes (like the only real difference is that the guys have faces).
>>
>>128051125
It especially annoys me when the MC is the only one moaning during sex scenes. If I wanted to hear those dying pig sounds, I'd play a game aimed at men.

Depends on what you want. The other guy isn't from a BL game so the gay remains subtext.

They do have a number of blaring similarities, including their dynamic with the main character, but there are also key differences, especially in power. Basically, imagine if Senge wasn't a rapist and could be bottomed and more I guess gentle? doting? with Kyou.

That said, if you're bored and want a 3DS game to play, it won't hurt to pick the game up regardless.

Same here! I think an otome game with a setting like Devil Survivor 2, alien invaders and the world being destroyed/erased from existence, would be great. Devil Survivor 2's Fate system really got me wishing for something like that in an otome game. Who's affection you get the highest with will unlock their route and you survive/find a way to fix it along with your boy of choice. And if you don't unlock anyone's routes/some bad ends will have the earth get destroyed or something because you didn't do shit about it or planned well enough.

>>128087525

I'm suddenly reminded of Pigeon Blood and now I'm sad. It coulda been such a good pulpy horror game, but they just couldn't get their shit together.
>>
>>128087753
I heard of it but never what it was about or what the boys looked like. Lay it on me, make me disappointed.
>>
>>128087874

Well, basically it starts out with your standard schlocky horror premise––a relative of the MC dies (here it's his older brother) and he has to spend X nights in a spookie mansion in order to inherit the family name and so on. While he's embarking on this task, a group of four rich asshole dudes on a road trip encounter some ~mysterious fog~ that fucks with their electronics and makes the car break down at the mansion. They turn out to be acquaintances of the MC's late brother and decide to impose on the MC. The MC goes along with it in spite of his butler's objections.

The dudes are all assholes, but the MC tries to hang out with them. They start drinking that night, drug the MC and try to gang rape him (naturally they decide to record this). The next day the MC doesn't really remember what happened until the asshole brigade tries to use it to blackmail him into a bizarre survival game because they're bored––they'll leave and stop harassing him if the MC can either find the memory card containing the video of the attempted rape OR if he mans up and kills one of them. There's also weird spookie ghost shit going on related to the MC's dead brother.

Anyway, so that's like the setup and where the demo leaves off. It's kinda like Funny Games meets some B-grade ghost-themed slasher? Spookie shit and psychological torture and fun stuff like that... at least until the game actually gets going. It turns into incoherent, poorly plotted, generic BL romance shlock real fast and is basically total garbage except for the hilarious bad ends like the ending where the butler kills the MC and then proceeds to lovingly fuck his corpse while explaining the backstory that set the whole plot in motion (explained nowhere else in the game) before killing himself too. Don't let that spoiler fool you, most of the game is boring as shit. One route was pretty much just half-assed copypasta from other routes (and the route itself).
>>
>>128088968
Oh man, those are my favorite kinds of bad ends. I'm EOP though, so I'll probably never read it.
Eh, sucks to be me.
>>
>>128088968
I don't think that 'Mizuki was a rapist' is the backstory that set the whole plot in motion. It's more about him being a brotherfucker and this shit wasn't exclusively mentioned only in this bad end.
>>
Anons, what can you say about Shingakkou?
>>
>>128091574

Ok maybe it wasn't the whole plot, but it was one of the bigger mysteries especially with all the time they spent on Kazuki discovering secret dildos everywhere and whatnot.

>>
>>128073364
>>128084270
>>128087525
The anons have spoken: dating game taking place in a possibly haunted hospital/sanitarium with a psych-ward. Do you choose your kind and thoughtful doctor, the cute patient you sometimes see hanging out in the patients' lounge, the ghost who's trying to get someone to solve his death, the shifty hospital director who's hiding something, or your brother who always comes visit you and talks about how great it will be once the doctors discharge you. You can stay with him, of course. His apartment is a little small (he can't afford much better since he's paying for your stay at a private hospital) but you're his sister! It's not weird to share a bed, right?

As always, artists, VAs and music do not make a game, the writing does. But sadly most people, especially nip school girls, buy based on the VAs and art instead of looking for good writers. Which is why companies keep churning out games with top tier production values, but don't even try to get good writers. Just look at d3p.

It's very good but it really should have been released as one game. The split format didn't do it any favors other than enforce route order for people who were into it from the beginning and allow time for speculation between volumes.

If he was a real person he'd probably get jail time or at least a restraining order.

You know, I wouldn't mind more "meta" type games, like Dot Kareshi.

There can be one where the "heroine" is transported into an otome game? Maybe even a yuri route with the original MC-chan being a huge slut.

There's Real Rode

So all the UtaPri games are getting ported to the Vita

A girl is transported to an otome game, but it's a normal person and all the boys turn into heroine cliches because of her. Like she's stronger than all of them because she doesn't have thin bishie wrists so she just princess carries them when they trip and fall, or she doesn't worry about indirect kisses and they're all "oh nooo she took a sip from my soda, ahhh doki doki" and similar, or she's not oblivious to the guys liking her so when she's like "dude do you have a crush on me" they're shocked because they hadn't considered being asked that yet and they have a big long "what are these feelings, it couldn't be~" monologue.

All? I can only see Repeat.
Hope this means they're considering an english version. Repeat is decent at best but if that's a chance for All Star in EN then I'd buy in a heartbeat.
>>
>>128185995
Repeat is only the first of many upcoming ports. They'll announce more in the future. Also, there'll be additional contents in the ports.

When they say all, does that include the UtaPri Music games as well I wonder?
>>
>>128185995
It's all of them, they just specifically stated that Repeat will be first.
>>
>>128185718
I want this so bad now anon holy fuck.
>>
>>128188580
I can't think of many more cliches, though. Someone else would have to help out. I only got:

>None of the side characters have faces and she's the only one who notices and thinks it's weird?
>Her parents are never seen but they leave behind notes and meals implying that they were in her house at some point?
>Guys literally emit sparkles and hearts when she chooses the right answers?
>And you can customize her name but no one says it and just gives her a nickname, and she wonders why.

Guy enters while she's changing, but she has no reaction and the guy is confused about this
>>
>>128190849
Like the guy just keeps saying "but I saw you! Naked! You can never get married now!" and she's just like "good" ?
>>
>>128190176
How about during those stereotypical bullying scenes with other girls the MC either gets them btfo with her reply and they become terrified of her and/or kicks their asses so they leave her alone?
>>
>>128191605
They go to shove her or pull her hair and she just decks them in the face because that's how a real fight goes, and no one understands what just happened because girl just balled her hand into a fist??? and threw punch???? impossible!
>>
>>128190176
When she gets kabe-don'ed she starts giggling or puts the guy in a kabe-don. Either way, the guy gets really embarrassed.

>>128191605
Maybe as a joke ending, the heroine decides to call it quits with the guys and forms a harem with his fan club.

Nah, the delinquent boy does it in front of the whole school to mark her as his girl, but she just ducks underneath his arm without missing a step because she has to get to class and everybody sees him get denied. The very next day he goes from the coolest kid in school to the dude that fetches the other delinquents beers and cigarettes, his street cred demolished. He even has to turn in his multiple ear piercings until he earns them back.

Last Era and Psychedelica were good, so I'd count Otomate in.

I don't know, I read a fanfic about browsers and firefox was a pretty good husbando

But he was her childhood friend, and he hung out with IE even when everyone else thought he was too slow.

I think a real winner would be an otome game in the style of Suehiro Maruo

>>128202431
>Half of the game CGs involve the husbando licking your eyeball
hot

>>128204341
what ?

One of the reason I think VN are infinitly superior to Harlequin shit besides the visual aspect is that romance doesn't reek of materialism like Murrikan shit.
You can have poor husbandos too, not just CEO and doctors.
>>
>>128206757
Suehiro is well known for his ero-guro art and pictures of eyeball licking.

Also whenever I played Harvest Moon Magical Melody I always went after the doctor because "in real life the doctor would help pay for the farm, so he's the best choice."
I was like, a little kid too so I knew my shit from a young age.

If only. A proper horror otome that doesn't fall apart because of the cheap horror elements thrown in with the dating aspect would be great.

Speaking of horror that BL game, Night at the Hospital was enjoyable even if it was short. The character interaction was memorable and gave a nice comedic touch to the horror atmosphere.
