Koei’s Neoromance/Ruby Party songs on Spotify

Fans of Angelique, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, Corda, Geten and Neo Angelique, you can check out the this Spotify playlist if your local Spotify account can play them!

Join us at a fan Discord server for everything related to Neoromance & Ruby Party!

Neoromance 25th Anniversary playlist on Spotify. Subject to change. Contains about 600+ tracks (including region-restricted content).

63 vocal songs released from 2018 to the present are now playable on Spotify from outside Japan. I also confirmed this with my own account (SEA region). Woohoo!

I understand that it’s only a handful compared to the 600+ songs that were released but surely we can hope that it’ll be made available to us fans outside Japan soon.

Asu he no Parade, featuring Oscar (Angelique), Hinoe (Haruka 3), Chinami (Haruka 4), Tougane (Corda 3/4), Rayne (Neo Angelique) and Nobunaga (Geten no Hana) is also the theme song for the brand’s 25th anniversary.

Some of the albums include new tracks from Angelique’s new vocal collection, event-exclusive vocal songs from Dandism and Abunai Romance, Corda 4’s SONGFUL and VOICEFUL as well as the vocal collections for the recently released Haruka 7!

(unboxing) Geten no Hana with Yumeakari Aizouban (下天の華 with 夢灯り 愛蔵版)

Our precious baby is finally home and it’s just so beautiful /gross sobs

Geten no Hana with Yumeakari Aizouban is the Vita port of the Geten no Hana games (PSP) in one. The Platinum box retailed for 30,000yen (w/o taxes) and has a bonus for those who pre-ordered by June 26, 2016. It released on September 8, 2016.

The series is about a kunoichi (Japanese term for a female ninja), Hotaru who is summoned to Azuchi Castle to meet someone in secret, with only directions to the meeting place and a password. She arrives at the meeting place only to find someone there and quickly arms herself. Turns out she was summoned by Akechi Mitsuhide, the right-hand man of Oda Nobunaga who is interested in the possibilities of a kunoichi with transformation abilities.

Hotaru then transformed into a young woman of noble birth, who is supposedly Mitsuhide’s younger sister and given the name Kikyou. Her work as a kunoichi now begins.

There are missions you have to complete with ample amount of time to explore Azuchi Castle and chat with the characters. Hotaru also has training (mini-game, to get flowers so you can gift them to romanceable characters) and needs to observe certain living things (frogs, for example) and objects (a Buddhist statue, the jizou) to be able to transform into them. She uses this skill in various situations and sometimes hilarity ensues.

This title was also announced in commemoration of Nobunaga no Yabou (Nobunaga’s Ambition)’s 30th anniversary. It’s also comparatively simple and short for those unfamiliar to the Neoromance franchise to play. I very much recommend it 😀

The Vita port has additional endings (Tsumi no Hana, darker ends where the ‘suspicion’ level is highest) with new content as well as compiling events from the PSP DLC release which are now voiced.

It also has two books, a memorial book featuring rough sketches and designs of the characters and a book with artwork, comics by Kuku Hayate, the character designer of the series. There are 9 character CDs and 1 CD with narrations, messages from the characters and a drama from the series’ 2014 event, Hanami no Utage (The Flower Viewing Banquet). The rest of the items are merchandise such as a waterproof smartphone case, connectable charms and nine illustrated clear cards. The pre-order bonus has been a connectable charm of Hotaru in her kunoichi form. Super cute >W<

Surprisingly, the character CDs are placed together in one, like a book. How awesome is that.
