When she was 7 years old, what Sorano Fuu (the protagonist) saw in her living room were the lifeless bodies of her beloved parents, who had died at the hands of an unknown culprit.
Taken in by a group of people known as “Tenshi”, Fuu asks them why her parents were killed. One of the Tenshi said to the young Fuu, “Your parents were “Dealers”, who are people that sell “Hoshi”. That is why they were killed.
Her parents were criminal vendors of the illegal-to-sell, taboo Hoshi on a large scale. This truth greatly troubled Fuu, and so she made a vow – to atone for her deceased parents’ crimes.
Now, the 20-year-old Fuu is a Tenshi who protects Akatsuki, a town in Cloud.
There was something she saw through the many missions she completed with her colleagues. That “something” is their sad pasts, all of which revolve around Hoshi.
They are still bound by the past; will they be able to break free of the curse of their pasts?”
I really wanted to share this news but I was fasting for the Lenten Season so nope. /o\
So this week, I came across a couple of news about Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side 4! I was so shook! Imagine, it’s been years, YEARS, back in the good old days of PSP, since the last time Konami released anything about TMGS (I’m not counting the Tokimeki Restaurant).
But here we are in 2019 with TMGS 4 set to release in 2020! Yassss.
Replaying is something I don’t really do often. Doing it for 7’scarlet made me realized that there were bits and pieces of details I missed the first time I played the game. It’s a fine discovery and it made me appreciate the writing through these foreshadowing more.
PS Vita’s life has come to an end. I am sad about that fact as it’s my favorite gaming platform ever since it replaced PSP. All of my favorite Visual Novels, especially otome games, are PS Vita releases.
To think, otome games have just been localized in the Western in recent years.
If you’re new in the otome gaming world and feels pretty bummed out that it lost one of its primary gaming platforms, fret not.
Companies like Intragames are porting VNs, most importantly otome games, to PC via Steam. For this post, I partnered with Intragames to bring you their latest release, 7’scarlet.
7’scarlet is a mystery otome game set in the far-flung country of Okunezato. The heroine Ichiko Hanamaki, visits the place to search for clues for her missing brother. As she delves deeper into the country, she uncovers the many mysteries and secrets of Okunezato and its residents.
I’ve already played this game last year. Since I’ve already uncovered the secrets once, I’ve decided to play this with my good friend for a different POV. So here’s Nami!
It took me a month to get through Senge’s ends. (ಥ▽ಥ//) Unlike my previous gameplays, I never wanted to finish every ends, unless they have CG or it’s not a bad end. So I got through 1 end and then proceeded to Misaki’s. This was a big mistake. Not only did it make me sad for Misaki, but it made Senge’s route even more painful to go through. It didn’t help that he went from bad to worst in each end.
Title: Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds Company:Otomate Release Date: August 24, 2017 Platform: PC (Steam) Walkthrough used: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1122528878
In a nutshell
In the hopes of finding her father, Chizuru goes to Kyoto to search for him. Instead, she finds the Shinsengumi. Shinsengumi members are a bunch of guys who protect the city but is also feared by the people. However, these guys are searching for her father as well. So together, they search for Chizuru’s father while she stays with them.
I was really hesitant to play this game since I felt like there was so much to catch up on, what’s with the long line of Hakuoki titles. Even with the two new titles, it was hard for me to know what was the difference between Kyoto Winds and Edo Blossoms. But my curiosity won and I’m so glad I played the game.
I was excited to play Tatebayashi’s route when I started the game. Just look at him looking like the knight-in-shining-armor. Character design-wise, he is more of my go-to favorite character.
However, after Shigure, I’ve gotten attached to the Gohongatana group. I loved the chemistry Shigure and Kyou have as partners in everything. I was afraid that Tatebayashi’s side of the story might not be as interesting as Shigure’s. But it proved that that is not the case. It was interesting but not because of Tatebayashi.
When Shigure first appeared, I thought that he is a proud seme who looks down on other people not in his group. What I didn’t know is that he is a big kid at heart!
Kyouichirou meets Shigure when he visits his uni’s library while the other is being pursued by the military. In the middle of the commotion, Kyou got involved. More like, he involves himself www. He used his sword to break out the fight. Afterward, Shigure takes note of Kyou’s sword which surprises Kyou. Wanting to know more about his sword, Kyou tracks down Shigure and further involves himself with the Gohongatana group.
