It’s the third game of Norn9! Last Era felt more like a sequel, so I guess we can say that Act Tune is finally the fandisk. The game has three scenario selections: Memoria, Legend of Norn, and Cantabile. Unfortunately, the game got really bad reviews (and I can see why, after playing the game), but I can’t say no to more Akito, can I? (=゚ω゚)ノ

This a full game summary-review, so lots and lots of spoiler ahead!

Otome Game Recommendations for Beginner Japanese

There are so many otome games in Japan but fans outside of Japan can’t play them because language barrier is a thing. Because of this, many (myself included) choose to study the language just so they can play all those good games. Though let’s face it, everyone starts from square one, a.k.a. beginner level, and you can’t possibly be able to play a really good otome game right away after one day of studying hiragana. But what if you already finished the beginner module/course, and you are confident enough to play a full Japanese otome game?

Of course, wafuu games (and most of the games in my cream of the crop list) are out of the question, but here, I list the otome games that I think have easy Japanese and beginner Japanese language learners can play with little, if any, problem.

Wanting to pursue her dreams as a fashion designer, Sanjo Yunoha left her boring ryokan life in Kanazawa to study in Tokyo. Two years later though, she comes back after receiving news that her mother Misuzu, the Fukujurou onsen ryokan proprietress, was hospitalized. As per the doctor’s order, Misuzu needs to take a break from tending their ryokan, so Yunoha is forced to act as the Fukujurou’s young proprietress while her mother is away. Being the proprietress won’t be easy though, because a new resort ryokan, the Seihoukaku, has just opened nearby, and it’s getting more attention than Fukujurou! Now, what will Yunoha, as the young proprietress, do in order to build a name for Fukujurou?

Fujieda Neri is a normal high school girl who lives with her father in a poor living area in Japan. On her seventeenth birthday, after school, she arrives home only to find her house burning down and her father missing. The only things her father left her are a password-locked mobile device and a letter telling her to go and study at Kaikyuu Gakuen, a prestigious school for rich kids. Neri decides to enter the school located in an island, and there, she’s introduced to a harsh caste system within the student body: the queen, whose orders are absolute, is on top of the system; the rose class (咲き誇る薔薇), which gets almost all the privileges, is the highest class a student can attain; the honeybee (名もなきミツバチ), the class where Neri is assigned, is the middle class; and the stone (捨て置かれた石ころ), which is almost similar to being a slave, is the lowest class.

The caste system aside, the school isn’t exactly what it looks like on the surface, and Neri is just about to uncover the secret that the school is hiding……

I was supposed to write my KZG review but I keep getting sidetracked because of Meant to Be, a new Filipino TV series that I’ve been watching every night. I know this isn’t a Japanese otome game or manga or anime, but hey, it’s a reverse harem!, so I thought why not make a blog post about it ・´∀`・)

The series follows the story of Billie Bendiola (Barbie Forteza), a normal girl who puts her family above all things. She spends her daily life working full time at a call center and part time as a tour guide to support her family. Things all change though, when she accidentally (pun intended) meets four handsome and rich young men, and her life takes a turn for the worst (?)

As she goes to school on the first day of her high school life, where she wants to make friends, the heroine Nakayama Hinakon bumps into and accidentally “injures” a boy with a face very similar to her. The boy says that he was on  his way to the Shishiku Academy opening ceremony, but if he isn’t able to attend due to his injury, he’ll be kicked out of school and Hinako, who caused the damage, will have to pay for the expensive school tuition and fees that will just go to waste. Not wanting to pay for the boy’s tuition and fees and bother the orphanage where she lives, Hinako decides to the attend the Shishiku Academy opening ceremony in his place. Little does Hinako know that this was the boy’s, who later reveals himself as her long lost twin brother Hikaru, plan all along–because he’d rather cross dress and do girly stuff than enter the all-boys Shishiku Academy of yankees and problem children! Hinako, who is good at martial arts, is then forced to switch places with Hikaru and aim to be the bancho of Shishiku Academy through beating up the other guys, while being careful not to let her true identity as a girl be revealed.

This is a spoiler-free review of the game ・´∀`・)

A terror group who calls themselves “Adonis” has been causing several criminal incidents within Shinjuku starting from April of the year. Every month, they claim that they are behind certain crimes by uploading a video in the internet and leaving a coin and a number in Roman numeral at crime scene. The roman numerals indicate the countdown to “X-Day”, the designated time when Adonis will “cleanse Japan of all evil and rebuild the country.” On December, A month before X-day, the heroine Hoshino Ichika, a rookie police officer, suddenly gets direct involvement with the Adonis group after she was attacked and knocked unconscious. When she wakes up, she finds a collar was put around her neck. Through this collar, an Adonis person communicates with her and tells her to show them her idea of justice without disclosing her involvement with them to the police–or else, they will poison her through the collar. In the midst of all that, Ichika gets help from a group of former police officers who are investigating the Adonis incidents by themselves, under the guise of running a detective agency. Ichika then teams up with the guys, so she can remove the collar and find the truth behind the X-day incidents.

This is a non-spoiler of the game — which will soon be released in English by Aksys Games!
