(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.

DormLove spring+summer update #04 – Sasha snippets + lack of updates

This post has been inspired by Mirin-san’s recent blog entry about Lasse, who is from Sweden and also the new character in autumn+winter. (You can catch a glimpse of him in between the seasons!)

If I had a choice of who I’m destined to be, Sasha Lebedev is the one for me wwww My bias, my everything~~! (laughs)

I don’t think my otome gaming years would be the same without him (* ̄∇ ̄*)♡

So today’s reveal would be a small part from a certain scene in Sasha’s route! It’s a spoiler for Sasha’s route but it’s kind of a sweet scene so I couldn’t help myself! /bricked

Enjoy! ♡

Crimson_Roots by COCOON

When I woke up, I found myself sleeping in a room that I have not seen before.
I wonder why I am here.
–No, I don’t even know who I am.

My eyes met a young man sitting by my bedside.
He tells me that he is a childhood friend of mine.
I can’t decide the truth of his words but to grasp the situation I am in, I chose to believe when they told me,

“You are a magician.”

They told me about Regetonne, a place of research as well as an institution that encourages the study of magic.
And that I am trained to be the next leader of Regetonne.
They also told me I am the reincarnation of a great magician…

Gunjou no Yuki (trial review; 群青ノ雪 体験版) by Stellatica

Gunjou no Yuki (群青ノ雪) is an upcoming otome game by Stellatica where Takigawa Nanase, a regular highschooler who was cleaning the storehouse at her home timeslip into the Taishou era when she opened an old diary.

When strange men lingering somewhere unsavoury caught sight of her, she tried to outrun them only to meet Takami Touma, a young man passing through. Touma, along with his companion, Fujima Kounosuke saved her from the men and took her to their home.

As Nanase has nowhere to go, Touma kindly offered her shelter (and later, work as a servant) with the Takami family. But fate had dealt her an awful card…

“Would you be saved if I change the past? Or would it be…?”


I played the trial version when it came out… last year? It’s completely voiced (except the protagonist, Nanase-chan but you can hear her in the PV ;3) and has a very exciting premise filled with mystery and suspense which I can’t wait to find out.

The ending for the trial version had been a fixed ending but in the full release, it would have the player go through it a second time and the story would branch out from there (according to this tweet).

Nanase’s seiyuu, who also voiced Kayo, one of the Takami family’s servant and later friend, is really talented! She did all sorts of voices for the female characters and if the writer hadn’t mentioned, I don’t think I’d have noticed they were voiced by the same people.

The game would be available in 2 forms, a freeware and packaged version. The freeware would have route restrictions. The packaged version (price currently unavailable) will contain the entire story.

It’ll be released soon (no date yet) but they have tweeted that pre-orders would start when the game approaches their release date.

One phrase: I can’t wait!!



Dormitory Love spring+summer: update #1.5

It’s not exactly the first update but a more meatier version of it. (ファイト、自分!!)

I have finished transcribing one of six character routes, Sasha’s route to be exact and also the common events. The translation will be done as I go but this will only be a draft. (I wish I’m better at creative writing /kicked)

The extra stories, completion bonus (basically everything else that aren’t the character routes) and the ‘Introduction’ where the characters give you a walkthrough of the game and its functions, etc are yet to be transcribed.

The reason why I have to transcribe it (or simply, typing it out as I run the game) is because Mirin-san doesn’t have a copy of the game’s scenario without the code and if I don’t have any typed out text to work with, it’s really difficult to keep things running.

But I’m really happy to have one character route and all the common events nailed down. I’ve taken a really long time to get it going and me along with the creator, Mirin-san hope to see this game entirely in English.

spring+summer is only the first of the many troubles adventures that Jun-chan or you would face when you have a dormitory full of individualistic guys from different countries >w</

I hope to post a scene from the common events but that’s all from me for now!
