Hana Awase Cover

Kaen is a school for children who have talents in playing… hanafuda cards. Outside the school, people think that they are just rich kids who are good at hanafuda card games but they are actually gifted kids who can use hanafuda cards in battles i.e. killing people and stuff. Meanwhile, our heroine Mikoto is just a normal girl who loves playing hanafuda card games when she gets “chosen” by the onifuda card as the candidate to be the next Senki. Because of this, the Kaen school takes her in to help her ultimately awaken the Senki within her. In order to do this, she has to (1) study to be a proper minamo (kind of like a “water miko” who supports a kaei, guys who can bring out the power within hanafuda cards, by giving him “water” during hanafuda battles) and (2) get the help of one of the Gokou, the top five kaei in the Kaen school, to be her partner. The gokou includes the capturable guys Iroha, Mizuchi, Karakurenai, Himeutsugi, and the currently missing Utsutsu. In Mizuchi-hen, Mizuchi is chosen by the onifuda to be Mikoto’s partner, while in Hime-hen, Himeutsugi is Mikoto’s fated partner.

This is a very short thoughts review of the first two Hana Awase games・´∀`・)

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!

It’s the PS Vita port of the most recommended PC otome game of 2015! I still don’t get why they would release a port of all four games in one just months after the last game was released, but I’m not complaining since playing on a vita is more convenient for me (*≧▽≦)ノシ))
