/blog/ - BL and Otome Games #295http://www.cool-b.jp/calendar.phphttps://www.4gamer.net/script/search/index.php?mode=schedule&JOSHIBUFAQ & Resources:http://pastebin.com/PxzvdMjA Rec Chart:http://pastebin.com/dDnYWGemPrevious Thread: >>39368591
Otome gachas seem to be becoming more abundant now but the regular VN otome games still seem to be the main source for good content. Personally I like that you can just buy a completed story with all the LI available but I've seen people who like gachas because they get new content a lot. Any thoughts on these?
It's been 10 years since I first played Tokimeki Memorial Girls' Side "ironically" with /v/
>>39658078I've tried a few but most are disappointing in one way or another and there's rarely enough voiced content. I much prefer VNs since like you said, you get a full experience in one go.Yumekuro is the best one I've tried recently. Main story and events are voiced and you get around an hour of voiced story and 2 cgs with every unit.
>>39658078Gacha is shit because it never ends, there is no conclusive ending. Shit is always retconned. You have to grind for days or weeks for content that can be read in minutes. Also for some reason always seems to attract the underage "he/it" twitter crowd who wants more ""inclusivity"" in otome, like male MCs.
>>39647800I hope you enjoy them, I will start warui first Ι think kek, thanks a lot again. Here only DHL is a choice ;_; Meaning, no matter the weight it's +30$ even for a pin and +10$ about for adding more + VAT depending the item. I always went with airmail one, bc who would steal fujo weeb stuff kek.Someone did open my packet once tho, but ofc they left it once they saw the cover kek>KamiyaI liked kamiya as seme more I think but that's probably just me haha Agree hirarin and yusa had the best moans. Toriumi too. Need to look for midous dramacd.I remembered I liked Yusa in corned mouse! Along with nakamura yuuichi. kek uta no pri Ringo and hyuuga combo, yeah coincidenceEnjoy! Both of them are great. Kondos tsuntsun is very cute. Sugiyama is so underrated it's sad. He is very cute as well. >same To this day I wonder how it's still on steam hahaha. Based. Many think komine as bestboy but I liked sakuma more. When Tomoaki forced his toys to roleplay my sides, but holy shit Inoues voice was hot. I must find this cd.>VitaJapan had used hacked ones for really cheap, but everything got more expensive during the pandemic. I hope you find one for really cheap. I prefer Sony over Nintendo as well, even tho Ds is memories.>that ds otome where you could take a peek at the LIs, while they were showering, and blow the steam through the mic, in order to get a better view-Based
>>39658078I prefer console games for the conclusive endings, but since I also play live service games like FF14 there a few mobile otome games I like, tears of themis, etc. a lot more mobile otome games have fun gameplay like yumekuro and since i started playing kiniro no corda I wish more console otome games had gameplay
>>39658078I play games as a service with actual gameplay that I self insert into so I have no time for boring setting/boring character mobile games.Maybe if they could move beyond idols/real life and fantasy.
>>39658078I like that Stand My Heroes despite being kind of retarded is f2p friendly and has romantic routes for each guy with proper progression and ending. The one plus of smartphone otome is that even after becoming a couple you can continue to get stories of how they are in their relationship, which you don't really get in console games if they don't have fandisks. But a lot of these games don't even get that far, or force you to keep grinding for breadcrumbs. Can't keep up with Star Orchestra because of it, guys are nice but it's too tiring.Also like pic related, it's Phoenix Wright lite, events are laid back but have a lot of effort put into them.
>>39658537Where I live DHL and FedEx are the only options and they're too expensive for just a few items I want from Nipland sometimes. Shipping can easily cost 3 or 4 times more than what I buy wtf. The only exceptions for the regular postal mail are the packages that come from a few countries only.>KamiyaHe indeed is better as seme. I think only nips like him as uke better. I just don't get just why he was considered some kind of god back then, but I suspect it was because of some popular BL character he voiced from a manga I can't recall the name rn.I will never stop saying that Toriumi is based. Currently listening to Kondo in Omerta. Great stuff!>That UtaPri comboI love those intentional combos. There are seiyuu that you'll always find together in a series. Although Miyano doesn't do BL, he was in some shounen ai together with OnoD back then. UraBoku managed to get some BASED seiyuu. I'm not sure, but it seems like it had a game too.>Naughty DS otomeThose were based. I wonder if they would allow some more ero content today. I crave more naughty games without them becoming vulgar like the ones on DMM. Wish DL was even wilder and actually dared to show naked Shu in the bathtub. Or getting stripped by Yui. Laito would have stripped the entire game kek
So they acknowledge this man has dumb hair but I don't think tying it would help
>>39663576The twins already roast him enough in game for it.
>tries to look up stuff for new otome games this year >for some reason isekai garbage with "otome" in their titles keep popping up I'll never understand these "otome" isekais with their weird 'villainess' schtick, all the shit in with cheating princes, muh getting executed for being mean to the heroine and literally the same medevial/victorian? setting for the world over and over in every story aren't even a thing in a majority of otome games. Do the people that make these isekais even play otome games?
>>39664242They're copying a popular setting, just like those revenge rebirth stories with the heroine being betrayed by her cheating fiance by her sister/cousin/whichever female relative in ancient china/korea/whatever country. Most of them started out as a webnovel before they were adapted in comic form, and because of the massive amount of chapters, it's an easy way for scanlating groups to make mad dosh/views from it.I'm also sick of seeing these because of their subpar quality, and the overuse of the stupidity and misunderstandings of the characters just to extend the story.
>>39664422I see. I mostly dislike it because the stories are really shitty with how they make all otome games seem like some massive soap opera with the same plot and settings with almost no variety, it's like people writing all these are just copying each other's homework with only slight changes to characters. Also it's annoying when I try to search up anything about otome games now a days and keep getting clogged with "otome" isekai webcomics/mangas/LNs and not actual otome games, I'm at my limit with all this nonsense.
>>39664570Those series are all based on what's pretty much the asian equivalent of wattpad stories, so yeah it's just people copying popular tropes and settings and inserting their OCs into it.
>>39664570That's what they do, there are really, really few decent ones where the main lead isn't a huge mary sue and never does anything morally wrong.Even if they are korean and they copypaste the male lead with zero changes between them because they basically like a single male archetype.
>>39664660>>39664667So they literally are all just copying each other?That explains everything considering whenever I see the summaries or try to read any of these stories it feels like I've seen it all before and the only differences are the names and character designs. I still don't get where the "villainess" stuff comes from, even old school otome games didn't have female rivals often and they pretty much don't exist in modern otome games.
>>39664899Classic shoujo stories all have the utter bitch rival whose sole purpouse is making the heroine suffer.
>>39664912Then it's not even based on any real otome game story? It's just old shoujo tropes being used in an isekai setting with otome games being used as an excuse for said setting? That makes even less sense now....Why don't they just say it's a shoujo isekai and not try to play it off like it's based on otome games? The only thing these stories have in common with otome games are the words "routes" and "love interest", their ideas of bad ends are dumb too considering the boy your chasing is more likely to get you killed then some random snobby bitch with drill hair.
Sisters wtf. I cannot understand how a story where (You) get reincarnated from your shit real world life into an fantasy setting where you are hot and rich and have 5 cute boyfriends to choose from could possibly be popular?
>>39665423No one is asking why it's popular. It's literally isekai wish fulfillment trash that gets shit out by hack authors online for easy money. Their asking why it's an otome game setting when it's nothing like an actual otome game, retard.
>>39665423>muh villainess is misunderstood>muh uwu heroine is aCtuALly evil fellas>muh fiancee prince cheated on me because he doesn't like me>everyone is an corrupt evil retard if they don't suck the villainess' asshole this is the plot of literally every otome isekai ever written, it's popular because it's low tier trash that's easy to read
>>39665598>replying to a s*s posterThey're just baiting.
>>39665712>>muh fiancee prince cheated on me because he doesn't like meAnd the heroine and his overly stoic boyfriend who is actually the most powerful man in the setting end up killing him/fucking him over super hard because cheating is the worst sin you can ever commit.
>>39665800Cheating is probably one of the most consistent things in otome isekai and it's like they can't come up with a better plot point, but it is copy and paste so yeah...
>one route and a half later>still no comedy>still no romance>just completely terrible drama on and on and on and onThat's it for himehibi black or white, shame because the LIs are actually kinda fun when you aren't in their route but it's hitting one and drama going overboard while also having zero actual romantic parts beyond the ending.Last time I pick up something because a love interest has a paperbag on his head as his default sprite.
>>39665980>my bf is cheating/will cheat on me in the future>I'll leave him and enter a [contractual relationship] with a hotter, richer and more powerful man>this also makes the cheating bf more obsessed with me>and he'll end up completely destroyed and powerless after my new husband is done with him after all the stuff he'll do to take me back>also [insert heart a secondary love interest who exists only to suffer despite having more personality than the ML]Worst part is that I still read this trash.
>>39666027Is this from korean or nip isekais? Because the cheating guy is usual with the heroine till the end at least in nip works. Korean stuff is more like soap operas, both are trash though.
>>39662255Same. DHLs might be godspeed, but paying for it is x4 times the value of the item.>kamiyaI'm glad I'm not the only one thinking so kek. I blame durarara, I too looked up for blcds featuring kamiya along with daiono kek. He is super based, Akira being a deadfish when he is not getting fucked, wasn't his fault ;_; >Kondos really good boy, glad you enjoy it kekIf only miyano did bl. Just one cd, I bet even his great grandchildren wouldn't need to worry about money. Yumes would go crazy. Same with Tsuda Kenjiro. I need to get back in uraboku. I have the ps2 game somewhere, interested?If DL was r18, it would be much more fun desu, naked Shuu yes, they moan a lot already kek. Laito intentionally getting cucked super kek. Tmgs ones, would be super fun had Konami spiced stuff a bit more. Minigames like>stealing himuro senseis underwear w/o getting caught>climbing trees outside of LIs house to see what he is doing through the windowTmgs3 koakuma version was a good start, but ofc they removed it in tmgs4, so not based.
>>39666135Why are our nip sisters such cucks
>>39662255>>39666488how good is the Diabolik Lovers game? i've never tired playing it and Subaru is cute
>>39666135I've seen the synopsis of live dramas, webnovels, and webtoons with the basic premise of contractual relationship more in Korean works. I don't think I've ever seen MC-chan not hooking up with the guy she forms a contract with, and once they fall in love or whatever, she suddenly becomes a stupid damsel in distress that needs rescuing by the 'ML'.The only satisfying revenge contract relationship I've seen in Korean was on Beyond Eden's 'good ending' with the butler, Theodore. It was pretty interesting since Theodore's a crazy obsessive yandere, and while Alex succeeded in his revenge, he drove away his good friend/potential lover Laurence in exchange.
>>39666635Super shit.The writing is as schizophrenic as half of the cast.
>>39666635It's good as a comedy
>>39666635It's a trainwreck. Try if you like unintentional comedy but nothing about it can be taken seriously. Subaru is the best boy
>>39666635Putting aside the content the game format itself is absolute shit and you're better off just listening to drama cds.
>>39668325>>39668374>>39668377>>39668400If it's so shit why was it so insanely popular
>>39668421Nips have bad taste etc etc.
Now that I'm remembering it, Dialovers did have a kino soundtrackhttps://youtu.be/4nq6kLZeXZ8>>39668421Shock value and people keep getting tricked into buying games with Satoi's art
>>39668421It was one of the first mainstream series that sold itself on the dummy head mic and Rejet pushed it hard. What the above anon said about Satoi too.
>>39668421>trainwreck>unintentional comedyThis. >>39668377 It also has a solid voice cast. Too many M neko-chans wanting that sort of thing. Supplying that demand. ???? Profit.
>>39666635No one ever likes to admit they like DL because of the mesobita memes, but it's based. I've been into it all these years and it's been one of the best otome franchises I've ever played. I always go back to it. The story gets more solid with every game. DF and LE are real good shit.
So, Diabolik Lovers is popular because it's basically meme tier in terms of writing and the game itself? Not what I was expecting for a big otome franchise.
>>39668819You'll always see how yumes always come back to DiaLovers because it's actually fun to play and read. Gotta agree with sisters who say Draa CDs are more solid and offer a more romantic otome-like experience, but there'sa reason why DiaLovers is always discussed and survived 10+ years.
>>39668377Subaru and Shuu were so fucking boring, literally damaged bad boys instead of batshit insane psycho yanderes.
>>39668819>Not what I was expecting for a big otome franchise.Are you sure? Utapri is also a gigantic meme.
>>39668969I agree on Shuu, but I thought Subaru was alright since he's basically a normal person but with anger issues, and outside the context of DL I can appreciate them not brushing over the domestic abuse that would come from such a thing.Kanato and Azusa were the only truly worthwhile characters though, in the first couple games anyway. Two very touched in the head people of varying malice. Have to give props to Azusa for being the only one with enough balls to directly fuck with Kanato too.
>>39669118Utapri is actually good.
>>39668969But one of them is a rare case who will let you rape him and the other would let you tenderly kiss him and will bit you so hard he could break his coffin as a reward. I'm starting to think that sisters don't like taking the initiative.>>39669229Azusa is Kanato well done. His backstory is endearing. My favorite.
>>39666635I personally really liked it. If you are a seiyuufag you are gonna love the cast. It gets a lot better too from game to game, plot/character development wise. It's fun. Nothing like the anime, the anime focused a lot on Ayato which wasn't bad, but the other boys were left out because of that. Rejet games are kek in general.
>>39669229>Kanato and Azusa were the only truly worthwhile characters though, in the first couple games anyway.That I can agree with, they were both super fucked up and super yandere in a schizo way, a great mid point between their siblings.
>>39665423>getting reincarnated into a world with no internet or indoor plumbingSounds like a nightmare to me.
>>39670927>no internet I'm sure 5 boyfriends can do something to fix that problem>indoor plumbingYou can take more frequent baths with your husbando
>>39670927Medicine is the dealbreaker for me, random and completely avoidable shit can kill you.
>>39670989>>39670980You're forgetting that these settings usually have magic so literally everything like that can be handwaved.
>>39670927>no toilets>have to shit on the streets with my husbandoThat's why I choose the go home ending
>>39671114>not wanting to see your husbando in his most vulnerable and primal statengmi
>>39666488>UrabokuIf you have the game it's very welcomed. My old PS2 stills work fine.>Miyanopic related when his agency won't ever let us listen to a Miyano x Irino BL work... Or a Tsuda x Miyano... Life can be unfair.>>39666635I like it and it's all that matters to me.>>39669299I like that Shu would do dirty things while listening to Rachmaninoff and tease Yui like if she were the reason he's a pervert. I enjoyed his route since it's refreshing after have been going through his younger brothers' severe autism. He was teh last route I played, maybe it's because of that I end liking him the most. I'm more of a vanillafag after all.
>>39670927Exactly! This is also why I hate when they only time travel into the past and don't really care for historical stories.
>>39671470>Sent!Maybe if one day difficult times come in Japan, they will be forced to push their voices into prostitution, kek yumejos will pay debts.
>>39679705I'd pay for a >totally not Miyano whores himself out to his producersdrama CD. Featuring the industry standard 2'0 minute long fellatio.
>>39682851>Miyano Eh. idk about that, he's got the chops for theater too. Have you seen his work on Seven Souls in Skull Castle: Moon Kagen?
>>39679705Thank you!>push their voices into prostitutionIt's just a matter of time.Hirarin already foresaw this happening.
I see you girls bashing Korean isekais but I'm still not seeing any Japanese isekai with a Stepmother x Dad/Stepson love triangle.
>>39682941I haven't, I just checked he is hotI'm gonna try this, thanks for the rec! >>39684675Wanna kiss the hands of the one who casted him for his slut debut.
>pick up an otome game after years >enjoy the first boy's route and the story is fun so far>pick another boy who looks interesting>his route turns out to be kinda "meh" and just end up skimming through it as fast as possible I don't know if it's just me but I feel bad when I end up losing interest in a character because the route wasn't as good as I expected it to be. It's just a weird feeling.
>>39691612It's worse when it happens with every character>actually okayish common route with fun character interactions>even dare to start a route>everything disappears and it's a boring, melodramatic slog
any games other than olympia where you bully or harass a tsundere til he breaks
>>39692470Yeah, common routes being average is fine but it's pretty bad when it turns out the individual routes for the boys are boring...Like, that's the main selling point of the game and you'd think that's where all the good stuff would be. I can forgive like maybe 2 boring routes but I'd want the rest to at least be entertaining.
>>39692590no, instead you get>genki character>is depressed and has issues taking over the whole route>kuudere character>is depressed and has issues taking over the whole route>tsundere character>is depressed and has issues taking over the whole routeand on.
>>39692590>>39692912All otomege are the same once you've played enough. Just play something that has a more unique plot.
Yes where are the kimoe boys sisters
Otome games where you can fuck your butler?
Happy birthday Minakami!
Has any anon here played Escape and want to tell me what they think about it? I’m curious since its manga spinoff was randomly translated into English earlier this year. I’m surprised that the protagonist is a manly canon slut with plenty of experience, not to mention that there’s apparently 20 routes? Pretty advanced in multiple respects for a game that came out in 2001.
>>39692541What about the bee one>>39710091See above
>>39710091In chou no doku you can both fuck and cuck your butler.Other ones I remember, Princess britannia and Tsubasa hime. Both shit writing.
>>39711903Oh yeah i forgot about that one, it was cute
>>39710091Trust me, there are no good ones.
otome games where you get to BE the butler and seduce all the little heterosexual lords with your seniority and blackmail them into your harem and make them twincest each other
>>39711888A sad day to be EOP.
Why aren't there more n+c clones out there? One studio can't sustain me.
>>39718907there’s parade, but as much as ppl bitch about there being “too many” grimdark R18 BL visual novels n+c is really the only company that lasted into the 2010s
>>39718108Anon isn’t that a BL game at that point.
>>39712124>butler WITH glassesOk I will play your kusoge sis
>>39669299>a rare case who will let you rape himMore otome characters like that?Extra points if they thank you.
>PAST:>play my first console otome game and end up finding my ultimate best boy>western SJWs hate him>/blog/ past archived threads says his shit so can't to talk about him with /blog/>consistently ranks 4-5th place with nips>get scared to replay the game in case my nip was so bad back then that /blog/ was right that he was in fact worst boy>PRESENT DAY:>start learning to draw people and backgrounds so I can make a doujin of my best boy>game has a sudden resurgence on twitter>suddenly a bunch of nips saying he is in fact best boy>all of this new fanart of my best boy>artists who I followed for a long time retweet old art of him I never saw and based on old tweets it turns out he was their best boySisters I'm winning! BEST timeline!
>>39735092reveal your best boy
>>39735092You can't write this whole post and then not say who it is. At least give us the series.
>>39737622NTA but my first thought that it might be someone from the kuni no alice series since it's older, has a more recent reboot, and it had a fairly large western fanbase meaning that it could conceivably have (english language) discourse around the characters and be someone's first game. But it started as a series of PC games and I'm not sure there was a character that fits the description the anon gave.
>>39737888I was kind of assuming Tokimemo since that's had the most notable resurgence. Everyone in HnK was fucked up to some extent so I can't imagine one character being singled out.
>>39735092is this your boy?
>>39738171>consistently ranks 4-5th place with nipsCome on now
>>39738252damn, i thought i got it. didn't think to actually check the popularity polls
>>39738363You need to brush up on your history if you didn't know Toma was insanely popular and ushered in a new age of yandere niichans.
>>39738363Is it me or is that arm way too short?
You know what's peak soul? When the game has special greeting/goodbye lines for times of day.
>>39735092He is probably from DL
>>39735092>/blog/ past archived threads says his shit so can't to talk about him with /blog/I always talk about the trash characters I love even if /blog/ always downplays me. I don't give a shit about what schizo samefags say, after all.
where is all the incest? f*ck
I've been on a Tokimeki Memorial buff again lately because of GS4, but I can't help but want more dating sims or Otome with gameplay elements. Any recommendations?
>>39745942Kiniro no corda, harukanaru, pretty much any neo romance game.
>>39735092Tell us how much you love Ayato
>>39745942Era games are fun, I've spent an unhealthy amount of time on it. A anon recommended Eraqueen and the TKRB ver (haven't played this yet) how many months ago. Besides what's already said and based on the jp wiki versions made for women include: Inazuma eleven, Hetalia, Attack on Titan, smash bros, Prince of Tennis and Kuroko's Basketball.>>39743415>>39748197Sorry I'm not into comedies.
>>39748496>I'm not into comedies.
>>39748496DL is like a shitpost and that's probably the best part about it
>>39752797How would that even work?
>>39755496comfy hostage situation?
>>39752797Uuultra C, the third couple
>>39755496Literally Gretel's route,
>>39748193Pretty much this is the only answer. Neoromance classics are 1000x more interative than most games we have nowadays and still fun to play. I always end going back to Corda an re-playing routes.
>>39759856with joseimuke mobile games printing money, when will otome/bl companies release games with actual gameplay
>mobile games>actual gameplayUh..
>>39760023It’s not like i want an action rpg like honkai impact 3rd, a basic rpg would be nice too
>>39760023I really like Arknights but that's more of a general audience thing. Actual joseimuke usually have no or bare minumim gameplay or are rhythm games for some reason.
>>39760019The majority of those joseimuke abominations are just you pressing auto and watching menus scroll and the players don't want anything that requires more brainpower than that. At least GS4 and Touken Musou did well, maybe we'll get more from that.
>>39755496They obsess over someone they are already in a relationship with
I think the only way to get a /blog/ game with gameplay beyond stat raising is from doujin circles, like that one action game otome on DLsite
LIs that sold their asses to hags/old bastards for bread or fame? Or just were forced to?
>>39766094>>39764012I actually know of something that answers both of these, the Letta games where the main love interest is a vampire boy prostitute (施薬僧のレタ if you actually want to find it, since I doubt the name is listed in english anywhere). You make medicines to complete quests for villagers and unlock events and ero scenes. Warning that it's probably not for everyone, off the top of my head you have to make the vampire boy whore himself out to a man to unlock one of the events, vampire boy is a huge yandere, and the other guys only have bad ends. . But I think you can avoid these scenes as long as you don't care about 100%ing it.
>>39766094Multiple Dynamic Chord guys were escorts/fucked executives to get their bands promoted
>>39745942Any chance of GS4 getting localized?
Does anyone know where can I find Corda Digakusei Hen IF routes? It's been serialized in LaLa DX magazine since last July, but no one seems to be talking about it? Not even chink sites. I'm really curious about the alt. endings the series is getting.
>>39768547never, not even the regular tokimeki memorial for guys got released abroad
>>39710091just play hadaka shitsuji
I need a male equivalent of Idolm@ster. I can't believe bamco still hasn't delivered.
>>39777705Wasn't there a new sideM game? With gameplay that's basically a clone of bandori/migu's game?
>>39778027Yeah, but I don't want just another generic rhythm game. The entire appeal of og im@s to me is the actual produce segment and the ability to put together units and have those changes actually reflect in the song.
>>39776511Trust me, I have...
>>39780447Me too, I don’t know why bamco let sidem flop when utapri was a hit and now enstars is the new popular idol boy series. it’s not like when im@s 2 was announced and all the gachikoi fans had a chimp out over boys being in the same game as the girls
>>39784724>it’s not like when im@s 2 was announced and all the gachikoi fans had a chimp out over boys being in the same game as the girlsThat did happen and is the reason the game doesn't get much support. When they first announced the boys at a live event they had their own version of blizzcon 2.0 public freakout and later had to backtrack what they originally said.
I like SideM and I wouldn't change it to appeal to fujo/yumes because then we wouldn't have teachers singing about going to school
I will never ever understand idolfags
>>39785237i know something like having the sidem boys be trainable in a console im@s like the crossover in starlit season is impossible, but it would be nice if bamco stopped fucking over sidem because of something that happened over a decade ago.
I really like growing stars tho
>>39777705>I can't believe bamco still hasn't delivered.Because it wouldn't be as popular as the other games and that's all that matters.>Made a crossover console game but excluded SM>So they made a crossover phone puzzle game with no plot that diedlmao
>>39785663We made a mistake. The objective was to FUCK idol boys, but instead we have an era of shitty rhythm games they want us to grind for no reason
I can't believe they replaced the StS OP for the switch port, the original extremely dramatic fake opera song was so iconic.
>>39788472New one is a huge downgrade but at least the old versions are on it too.
>>39788295it’s not like the console games are selling millions, at the most the xbox 360 version of the OG arcade game sold 100K units. tokimeki memorial girls side 4 and the touken ranbu musou easily sold that many. if bamco put any effort into selling sidem as they do undermining it they can make sell
Is nu carnival dead already?
>>39789573feels like it
>>39785663Me neither. Idolfaggotry is one thing about otaku culture that I can't even understand. I don't understand VAfaggotry either, but that's only to a lesser degree. A good VA is a good VA, but the personal cults are weird.
>>39788413>The objective was to FUCK idol boysI blame joseimuke and gachashit for taking away this kino from us.
>>39788413While coomers still get their idol shit games where they can fuck girls like in Shining Song Starnova, yumes only get half assed rythm games. Very disappointing.
>>39789573We just don't talk about it in here anymore.

>>39793327>cdsBilibili has everythingMerch tho, is another thing
>>39794648That's basically the idol harassment CDs.
>>39797712>idol harassment CDs.Those were great. They've gotten the usual stereotypes covered. Best of all was the reveal that it was a 4d galaxy brain master plan to turn them into more stronger popular idols.
>>39801691CD 5 was a masterpiece all in all.
>>39794648Sounds like heaven.
>>39802604Oh yeah. I listened to that years ago. Wasn't it that tall toy model loving idol who got harrassed again by his rich former classmate stalker bully? I love all of them. Surprisingly, I like them in this order. 5>4>3>2>1

>>39813232I have. They're good for mobage overall.Have never invested a single cent in the games, just playing poorfag way, but I like the stories, characters, and the events you can join.
>>39813574I looked up on the staff on vndb, the scenario writer is the same one from norn9. the gameplay is a mix of ace attorney and raging loop so i’m interested since a while ago the thread talked about otome games with gameplay

>>39815818For us, sister. For us.
>>39805479Yeah, that's the one, don't forget the part where he's a washed up idol way older than the age he pretends to be but still a huge virgin.For me it'd go 5>1>2>4>3, just didn't like the dom one, annoying voice and the cries in 1 were super good.
>>39818316Shamefur display. I can't believe I've forgotten that wonderful aspect of that story. I guess I got too distracted when the fifth idol broke down and started begging for the d. They're all good in the end. The script, voice actors, and even the mob extras they cast were topnotch. I really like the voice of those two blackmailing villains in 4.
I'm enjoying the rise of male bitches in BL. Thank you, Belial, for making this type popular.
Please me I'm not the only one experiencing secondhand embarassment during SSR Garu's fourth intimacy room. Karu's enthusiasm in asking Kuya for advice conquering his first human, Kuya giving fake hypnosis instructions, and Eiden's acting skills coming into play again was unexpectedly hilarious.
>famitsu sales only includes physical software>5ch always doom postingWhy do people meme that the industry is dying? I agree that it's definitely shifted to gacha just bc it's more profitable but that doesn't mean the genre is dying. Most people I know only buy digital. Are there any nip producers/writers saying in interviews it's not selling?
>>39830784I saw a discussion some time ago on /a/ because there are series that barely sell physicial copies and everyone shit in them, such as the case of Platinum End. Oricon, Famitsu, among other similar sites never include the digital sold copies because they're difficult to track. In other words, to have the complete number of sold copies of games, manga, etc, every seller should provide a report, but it's either not required by sites that make statistics or only available for the publisher/developer. You can only guess that if the series still is alive it's because it's selling well digitally.
>>39831039>not required by sites that make statistics or only available for the publisher/developerWell that sucks. Seeing more otome games to be localized in English/Chinese by otomate and companies not otomate definitely makes me skeptical about famitsu.
>>39832164>still no scenario writer listedIt's a flop.
>40 dollars for a towa plushDamn, sisters..
>>39831297Famitsu and Oricon are biased as fuck and will never tell you how well a company/artist is doing. They will rank like shit because of the lack of information. It's not a surprise that devs and publishers trash their ranking all the time. They favor the ones that are affiliated to them and base their top choices using the only information they have in hand. Not to mention that they not always consider sales outside from Japan.Unironically, you can have a better idea of how good something is based on the reviews left by people on the sites they get their stuff. Most stuff these online mag sites list as unpopular are, many times, better ranked than the things they claim are the best. And you can even find even more reviews for the low ranked ones than for the top 10 choices.I stop believing in rank system thanks to all those stupid wars on /a/ deciding who's the most elitist retard when it comes about watching a "good series" according to that board. Turns out that they are all shit lovers who base preferences on made up rankings that use half assed references and biased criteria.Otome is niche, but the genre has a very devoted public who will buy either physically or digitally. And, mostly, of the later lately because shipping worldwide is shit and people nowadays tend to buy more digital stuff. Only oldfags and the ones who like paper and collecting things will always opt for physical.
>Industry isn't dying>Look at upcoming release calendarSisters...
I started playing Rune factory 5. While the graphics are kinda bland and there's weird performance issues, I still find the core gameplay loop addictive enough to look past the jank. I'd been indecisive for a while on whether to play it as an otome game or BL game but in the end I settled on playing it as a BL game for the novelty factor.
I hate gacha games. It's impossible to tell a good story through that medium because it's always going to NEED to be watered down in some way to appeal to the lowest common denominator, and I can NEVER enjoy these games without understanding that everything I'm seeing or doing is just a ploy to make me wring my wallet out more. I despise that these things are so popular, but it makes sense, you give people the same rehashed tropes and plotlines and characters they've seen a million times and are already incredibly familiar with (things they don't have to waste any critical thought on!) and you add in gambling mechanics -- bam, winning fucking strategy to raking in coin. All gachamakers and players need to kill themselves.
>>39836727>I hate gacha games.Okay. I hate how most companies shifted to microtransactions, predatory practices, and half-assed buggy products instead of focusing on creating good quality works too. They need to stop paying writers peanuts. >All gachamakers and players need to kill themselves.Whoa there. Are you okay? Who hurt you, anon? I'm pretty sure some of them are already at Gensokyo after they racked up a massive debt and failed to get the characters they wanted.
>>39837074Rich people make me seethe, don't worry about it.
>>39836727>All gachamakers and players need to kill themselves.Exactly my thoughts when Broccoli merged servers with Chinkna when I used to play UtaPri Shining Live. Oh wait, I still think the same.

https://www.gematsu.com/2022/05/touken-ranbu-warriors-for-pc-coming-west-on-may-24https://youtu.be/pyPlrJlpWhcAlways funny seeing responses from males confused at a game not being targeted at them
>>39836727Tbh this could be said about most works in the genre not only gachas, they all copy each other and what they think will be popular and no one is left trying to tell their own story without money-drooling all over the place.
>>39848573Delicious Sengo thigh meat. Hopefully it's not a half-assed attempt at translation like EN version of OG """game""".

>>39851599If Eiji says "poggers", I'm going to be upset.
>>39784724>>39785237Tbf, Jupiter was just the cherry on top, the biggest reason for the chimp out was Scamco reducing 4 (or 3.5 if you wanna be technical since Ami and Mami were practically the same character before) out of the total 13 idols to NPCs that can't be produced because of voice actress scheduling issues that would have likely been resolved if they had delayed the game instead of rushing it out
>>39852990Meant to say 12 idols
I'm going to get the Madarame drama cd just for more Linkin Park.
Some of the misc music in the PS2 version of TMGS1 is actually pretty catchy like this date spot theme: https://files.catbox.moe/qtr010.ogg (Ripped straight from game files so the quality is pretty bad)This and other themes are actually reused in the other games, even GS4, though they're versions made specifically for the DS that are missing a lot of the instruments and sounds of the PS2 originals.Would have been nice if Konami had put higher quality versions of that stuff in GS4 instead of the dumbed down DS versions since they wanted to cheap out and reuse music anyway.

>>39854147Uh wait. What’s stopping them from making a BL branch like Nitroplus? They fucked up things on their end way too much ?
>>39854307They’re probably worried yumejoshi will pushback against a BL branch
>>39854378But the money tho. They already hit rock bottom anyhow. What about banking on that infamy so that people will buy just for sheer curiousity and/or burning the physical stuff they bought?

>>39867115Happy birthday to my first runner-up husbando. >>39865037Weren't Eiden's yokai ears and tail a fake temporary illusion that Kuya made? Could Eiden really feel Kuya's bite through it? Well, the summer event story sure was interesting because it provided an additional worldbuilding info on yokai and a Yakumo cameo. I like the look of Kuya's smirk, but his temper's quite volatile and he was more of a jerk than usual. He seems to be very turned on at Eiden's distress that even I feel bad for Eiden. RIP Eiden's sensitive bits vs Kuya's sharp yokai claws.>>39868141Why isn't this more of a thing? Is it because they're too busy narrating their lewd acts?

Eiden is getting there but he does need to moan more>>39870240Kuya is the character I'm most torn about because his archetype and dynamic with Eiden turns me off, but his scenes consistently hit my kinks and preferences. Makes me wonder if I should roll for him
>>39870240I finally got Summer Kuya and I'm chipping away through his third room so I can answer my own question. Sadly, I don't have enough roll and to raise him to 3* for the last room.>>39877356Same feels. I like the additional worldbuilding stuff especially about Huey and seeing Eiden's reactions whenever I look at Kuya's intimacy scenes. I'm still far from opening the other rooms of his first SSR. For this event his second room has biting, illusory mind control, and crying. Since Kuya made the yokai disguise, Eiden can feel through his tails and ears hence the interesting spoiler preview of Eiden's tail being bitten.
>>39748496>>39751144>She made the meal I asked and now I'm mad. How could this happening to me?I still remember the scene in anime where his stuffed bear thrown and burned in fireplace.

Does a mother raping, bullying or cucking her own shotas count as shota bullying? Even after she dies, she can still somehow fuck and bully her sons, her rivals sons, some orphans and others. So does it count?
>>39880935>not raping all of her sonsIs this dumb or smart move? She could have tasted her sons shota dicks but on other hand these mentally ills may started to murder themselves or her sooner
>>39880935>does bullying count as bullying?

Is it true UuultraC has actual father/son blood related incest?
>>39888706No..? None of the main three couples have that dynamic and I'm struggling to remember if there were even any side characters with that either. In any case, if you are looking for blood related father/son I don't think you will be satisfied with UuultraC. Who even told you that?
>>39888706>>39888741Yomi's offshoot was Juurou's mom so he's sort of Juurou's uncle or grandfather depending on what you count the offshoot as. I guess if you assume Juurou's mom is a clone of Yomi then he's genetically speaking Juurou's father. But it's not something that's really addressed in the game nor does Juurou know so I doubt it will satisfy the fetish. Though on the off chance anon was asking because they were disgusted by the idea, it might still be weird for them.
>>39888813Ah... That's true. It's been a while since I've played, but yeah. I doubt it will satisfy that anon (if that is what they are looking for).

>>39902595I hope soon. ;_; I bet a game would be even more kino than the novel. They can add more bad endings as based as choudoku ones. Kino shit too.
>>39902591No problem. >>39902830>more bad endingsYes. I really loved how much of a wreck everything went down on those bad endings especially on the tokuten. I was also hoping MariaCrown would produce another game ever since it's successful love letter to Chou No Doku with Yoshiwara Higanbana, but they've been silent on their end.

I've got fond memories of playing through the tokuten the first time with those guys.

Why hasn't anyone made BL SMT yet. Or just a proper dungeon crawler but gay. Regular eroge had that need covered like 30 years ago.
It seems like people stopped bitching about nu carnival stuff leaking on MRM
>>39903557Actual videogames are expensive to make, so by making something BL only you narrow your audience significantly. Especially when it comes to some thing like SMT. Plus at the end of the day, it's old dudes in charge that probably dislike BL.Best you can hope is more JP Suits become open to the idea of gay options in videogame so you can play a game with an E-Boyfriend I guess.
>>39903670Oh, I understand their dilemma. No big deal, I am completely open to full on degeneracy here desu. SMT but with everyone fucking everything, especially demons, is also perfectly fine in my book.
ban asian audiences from having opinions who says no
>>39903670there’s doujin game devs. rance made a strategy rpg in the same vein as fire emblem with porn.
>>39904020Yeah, but isn't Rance Hentai? I assume fujos who are in the doujins scene are just not interested in making these games, or just make VN.
>>39903885>ban asian audiences from having opinionsAnd what, let western audiences have opinions? No.
>>39903557I miss playing SMT Online Imagine. Your closest demon allies are linked by fate to (You). There's a private server available I think, and it's a pure grindfest. Most people also consider SMT V gay because of how the story went down. I'm more surprised that P3P's FeMC got a shota love interest in Ken and the conversation between their teammates when this waa brought up was as awkward as you can imagine.
>>39905816Sounds like pure kino, but I'm guessing gameplay was awful.
>>39903557It sure would've been nice if Alice Blue was still around.>>39905816>Most people also consider SMT V gay because of how the story went downReally? I didn't notice anything particularly gay on my playthrough, aside from my own fujo delusions wanting to make Fionn x MC a thing, but I only did one route so maybe it has to do with that.
>>39906378It's actually pretty enjoyable with all those lovely SMT references once you get out of the grinding hell stage. You want inflict every status effect pinning down your enemies while your demons/human allies destroy them? You can. Summon your demon allies by kissing your ring? Doable. Tame a powerful demon through tense negotiations, capture their heart, and then only bring them out whenever you're window shopping? Can. Show-off as a male glasses wearing bunny butler while skipping and holding hands with the monstrous Alice or travel the land being princess carried by Cu Chulainn? Why not? Go to the beach dungeon wearing nothing but speedos with your buddy-buds? Been there, done that. I survived purely as a f2p just by farming mats and p2w peeps focused on their pvp rankings. Guilds are comfy af, and the game forums were very active. We thought it would last forever, but of course normal mmorpgs have a finite lifespan. There's also a gacha SMT, but I think only long time player masochists with deep pockets play that as it's become nothing more than bait for whales.>>39906504Once you finish all the routes, you can try looking up /vg/'s smtg thread archives for their SMT V reactions.Anyway, Yamato's route in Devil Survivor 2 was fun too. It kinda made him crazier in the anime adaptation and it didn't help that Suwabe voiced him. There's also something about his connection with Alcor voiced by Sakurai, but it's better to play the game because of how much they squeezed game contents into 13 episodes. They have a good voice cast, memorable OP/ED, but it got ruined through cutting off contents.
>>39906822Damn, you make it sound really fun, I'll have to poke around that private server.
>>39905816SMTV had a story?Fun fact, I think the gayest SMT is DDS Novel, which had canon gay sex I think? But all PS2 SMT had various shades of gay, like Raidou.
>>39907317>SMTV had a story?It tried, but it was both not there and offensively bad when it was.My hype for that game crashed super har, finished it and haven't touched it since.
>>39907330It's not just the story to be honest, the gameplay with the half-assed open world and ubisoft towers felt unfinished.I'm not surprised the megaten community quickly turned against it, despite all the hype.
>>39907364It saddens me because I know atlus can still do good maps, eo and the new redux maps were by all accounts good dungeons.And then they traded them for closed areas where you don't even need to fight and can just teleport back to safety at any point.It's basically everything bad from nocturne and 4 in a single package.
>>39907387EO is done by a different team though, isn't it? The truth is that a lot of old Atlus talent left and their games gradually lost their identity, hence new Soul Hacker looking like any Vita RPG.
>>39907411They still shared people for SJ (similar map philosophy, uses stuff like the princess follow ups as its main gimmick) so I hoped it'd have some cool dungeons.
>>39903885And get western otome games? You're free to buy those on steam bro
>>39907317>SMT VWell this >>39907330 and this >>39907364 sums it up best. It's a pretty shell fuelled by nostalgia and rose colored reference glasses. >shades of gayI haven't read the Avatar Tuner novels. But I liked the Digital Devil Saga games because of the various levels of love and hate between the characters. Pretty good OST too.
>>39907576>I haven't read the Avatar Tuner novels. But I liked the Digital Devil Saga games because of the various levels of love and hate between the characters. Pretty good OST too.The Avatar Tuners novels are the one with the gay sex, iirc Serph original was straight up in love with Heat original and tried to fuck him. It's fairly different from the games tho and Atlus had little to do with it.Their games feel like they got progressively less gayer and gayer
>>39907672They sell their game sto coomers nowadays, sadly, just throw enough fujobait no matter how shit the charartcer is (akechi).
>>39907729Persona fujo always scream desperate to me, especially western ones.
>>39907114It's fun with a group. Awful as a solo leveller. Your butt and hands will grow numb from grinding. Unless you have the shop teleport item, you're looking at least 30 minutes travelling time between point A to B. It's faster with a mount, but the mount ring durability drops with each use. Low level demons like Inugami will love mobbing you so the newbie zone has an area called Inugami Hell. Sometimes you'll get unlucky enough to meet with an area boss respawn that will keep chasing you. If you're not familiar with an enemy weakness, you might reflect yourself to death, your exp will go down, and your equipment durability drop. If your demon ally also dies, their affection will get lowered too. You need careful calculation which demon skills to get and sacrifice because you have limited space for your demon storage and summons. Your alignment matters because if your favorite demon is chaos aligned, they'll cost way more magnetite to summon as a lawfag even if it's just a little weak Poltergeist. Powerful demons are locked behind super rare drop items and triple fusion which cost a load of dosh. Finally, if you don't know what you're doing with your skills and just upgrade them willy-nilly, you'll end up useless in battle. Unfortunately, the old forums got wiped with all those helpful guides. You can try looking for JP guides, but I don't know how active the private server still is.>>39907672>spoilerWhoa. I read that it was different from the game, but that exceeds my expectations. brb gonna find JP copies of that to read at the speed of light. It's interesting to learn that Hirotaka Maeda made the cover art. I became familiar with his art style because of Tokyo Yamanote Boys.

I became familiar with his art style because of Tokyo Yamanote Boys.Yeah the game itself was different from her idea probably because she got sick and didn't write it, and Satomi had to step in.
>>39907364>>39907576Huh, I guess it's a good thing I went into V as a complete newbie who decided to jump into the series with the release that had an MC who's my type. Sounds like I would've been disappointed otherwise.
>>39908540If playing that interested you enough, and you want more, you can try the older games. There's compilation of resources on /smtg/ if you want to give it a look. You can ask for help there if you're stuck or something. Just ignore the regular thread autists shitposting.
>>39907729I never got people obsession with Akechi, especially in the original P5 he barely felt like baity
>>39909269It's because he's an edgy prettyboy with a sad backstory with a 'homoerotic' rival dynamic with the protagonist that just rehashes L x Light. He's basically Jun, Ryoji and Adachi rolled into one but infinitely shittier.
>>39909588Yeah, I know the archetype, but I feel like actual material in game regarding that was very weak
>Sugiyama Noriaki I will play your game voltage
>>39909588Adachi's popularity makes perfect sense and I love him
>>39909269Fujos have no standards when it comes to bait.
>>39911951if that was teh case these shitty sport anime that air every season wouldn't be so dead
>>39854147>release the monstrosity that is Tokeijikake no Apocalypserundown? I'm not a otomefag.
>>39859567>>39877012It's extremely homoerotic and fun, go read it now
How is birushana?
>>39854147Dosnt otomate games have lesbo routes? Tbis dosent seem like a hating gays thing but more of a self insert thing
>>39664242Vilianness shit has ruined the shoujo genre forver. I cant go into the tag without getting assaulted by that shitty medival times aesthetic
>>39913745Some people were calling Hugo ugly, so it's definitely a hating gays thing
