For the past year or so, I’ve been seeing many advertisements for otome on platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. Most of the time, I would ignore these ads since there’s countless of them on these platforms. However, at one point I saw that Instagram had this advertisement for one of my favorite games… Continue reading Advertised Otome

Original and unedited image by: Nikkal.Moon (edited with permission) This year has definitely been an eventful one so far. With everything that's going on, it’s kind of hard to even focus on yourself or basically anything that might take your mind off of the many events in the world.

Both Mystic Land and Nexus Code were released in 2018. Both BL otomes have you choose between couples rather than have your character be with different characters within the same world. Please note that this first impression is before choosing any of the routes within the game. Mystic Land takes place in Wonderland where you… Continue reading Pride Month: Double Otome First Impressions- Mystic Land and Nexus Code
Finally the last post for Valentine's week/month! Thank you all for reading and enjoying my content. My question for you is: Do you have a favorite game, anime, manga, drama for Valentine's Day? If so, what is it? I'm really curious as to what you guys have to say.
For Valentine’s Day I’ve been playing otome and visual novels while also trying to read as many romance manga and watching as many romance anime and dramas as I possibly can. During this time, there are many good creations and I’ve seen many people put their talent into good use. Two good examples of this are Red Embrace and Sacrificial Princess and King of Beasts (both of which I have done a review on). There are many creations that I have enjoyed for the past month or so- that being said, there are a few that just didn’t cut it for me.
Sim dates (or Otome Games) are a popular visual novel sub-genre where you, as the player, have to get the male and/or female characters to fall in love with you in order to get the good/true endings of the routes. If done right, the story and the gameplay are rather worth the countless amounts of laughter, tears and moments of frustration from trying to choose the correct answers in order to get a good ending. One example of a dating sim is the korean dating sim that blew up the internet: Mystic Messenger. After this, many people decided to check out other dating sim games. I've played dating sim games for years now, but, of course, I will never forget my first dating sim I ever played.
