Hello! I know you've been inactive for quite a while so you don't have to answer this question but what's you fav otome games and the ones you recommend? it can be paid or mobile games thank you
Hello! oh my gosh, I’ve been inactive for like more than a year or so…? Ah, I’m so sorry anon for that! But of course, I’m answering your question!
Favorites…? Yeah, right! Be prepared for a lengthy list! But anon, I can’t really specify which I love the most because each game has its own uniqueness so the ranks here don’t mean that ‘Akane-chan likes this better than that’ or something out of sorts~
Though, I’ll only list the ones which leave great impressions on me here!
Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side 3rd Story – great bgm, great art and of course, great voice actors! I fell in love with Shitara Seiji (CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke) at the first sight, though his story is a bit lacking in some parts.
Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side 2nd Kiss – yea, another TMGS! This time, what I love the most is the romantic backstory, the mermaid legend! The bgm and art are still top notch and also the voice actors. I love the progression of Saeki Teru’s (CV: Morita Masakazu) route here and I just like Wakaouji-sensei’s (CV: Morikawa Toshiyuki) character~
Samurai Love Ballad Party – sengoku era! I’m smitten from the moment I downloaded this game. My favorite main story is Kojuro’s though I prefer Saizo more (if only his main story was written better) as a character. The MC here is cute and I find her pretty relatable.
Kiss of Revenge – old game yes but the story? Well it outmatches most otoges I know which prioritizes the act of having sex and romance more. The whole storyline isn’t perfect but if only Voltage put some more effort on it (like medical vocabs or such), it will surely become a better and great medical drama! One of some points I love from this game is the MC, she is independent! I also love how each of the characters’ story progressed. I prefer Issei here but I’ll definitely go for Takafumi Daidouji if only Voltage released his route…
Guard Me, Sherlock! – ahahaha, it’s one fun game! I’m currently in love with Mycroft’s route since it’s just recently out. Before, I was really smitten by James Moriarty due to his quirks and two stooges Sebastian and Jack~ Ah, the MC here is an actress! It’s pretty rare for otoges to have MC who is pretty famous or having a bunch of self confidence.
Liar! Uncover The Truth – I love this game, like, really really love it! The MC, especially! I love how she resembles me in general and how funny she is! I hate those sorts of helpless, masochistic MC Voltage creates in other games who will just close their eyes only to have the guys save her! I mean, it’s not realistic at all! Aside of that, the guys’ characteristics. Although I was raging while going through Keima’s and Kunio’s lies, they’re great characters, nevertheless. My pick here is Itaru – call me a traditionalist but yes, it’s him. He is friendly, cute and willing to go on great lengths to make MC happy. My second pick will be Sotaro since I just have a thing for cool guys…
Our Two Bedroom Story – okay, it’s the MC again. She’s sassy and funny and I just love it! The whole storyline is a bit refreshing too. And Minato! Tsumugu! I can’t pick between these two…
Hiiro no Kakera 4 ~Shirahana no Ori~ – though there was one point in my life when I was completely done with this game while in Gentoka’s (CV: Morikawa Toshiyuki) route (which also made me contemplate whether to get rid of this game for good or not) Kuuso’s (CV: Suzuki Chihiro) route made me see this wretched story in a new light! When I started his route, just then and only then I realized the true meaning–the jewel–of the story! He isn’t the nicest guy and he’s rude most of the time but he certainly gives her some feedback, advice, reassurances and love that she needs! Unlike Gentoka who only showers MC with ‘I love you’s! Ahh, my rambling might paint this game as unworthy but trust me, it’s worth a try, especially and only Kuuso’s route! This whole storyline used to be a whole bullcrap to me but in Kuuso’s route, it becomes a true historical drama that I long for! While other characters’ routes disappoint me, the story itself left a really great impression on me, in Kuuso’s route.
Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo – the MC is funny, cute and so relatable! The story itself is already funny and the characters, while seem like to be too good to be true, are realistic as well! Overall, all the routes are great but Ayato’s (CV: Namikawa Daisuke) route is my favorite since it’s unlike the others. His character is enjoyable and I found myself replaying his story twice…
I suppose those are the ones which left quite the impression on me anon! And I’m not sure with what you mean by ‘recommend’, are you asking about the game or the characters? If the characters then you can say the ones I mentioned above (with the exception of Gentoka) are whom I find most enjoyable.
As for the game, then I suppose the firsts I recommend you will be TMGS series, Kiss of Revenge and Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo. TMGS series cover everyday-like school days but it’s cute and highly relatable if you’re a student! Kiss of Revenge is probably my preferable Voltage game so far due to the unique storyline and Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo, again, is about school but MC here is not your average, shy female student – instead, she has a lot of weakness that she has to overcome in order to get her happy ending!
Ahh it turns out to be a way longer post than I intended to but I’m happy to answer!
