Guide : Otome Mobile Games

So you are interested in knowing more about Mobages but you don’t quite know where to start. I wrote a long reply to someone I talk to fairly frequently on Reddit so I will copy paste it here and edit or add more lines. This is just a general guide about Mobile games. It’s not detailed enough to really talk about all the mobages I’ve played.

Hmm.. First things first, I don’t know if I would recommend Mobile Otome Games (mobage) as they’re a whole different style of writing and themes than Steam/Vita games had to offer which most people have been more used to right now. I would say the Shall we Date series has some collaboration with Idea Factory and is probably closest to the games we are used to. However, so far, most of their games I’ve played are… really serious? Draggy? And is a lot more story/plot heavy. Prices mentioned below are in Canadian Dollars and may be a lot less when converted to USD.

Voltage games are more into slice of life type stories, they’re shorter and may be boring to someone looking for fantasy themes. However, you definitely won’t skip on much content. It’s normally new in 95% of the routes. Except if you buy the guy’s POV routes which is only necessary if you’re a completionist and want the bonus CG, video or wtv lol. Also, because it is a pay per route, it can get quite expensive. WAY more expensive than buying a game outright. Voltage games can run you up to probably $15~$25 CAD per season of 1 character. And sometimes, a character could have up to 2~3 seasons. :-/

The “Shall we Date” PAID series I guess is a bit more forgiving. 1 Character could be around $6-$8 CAD depending if it has a main story + sequel together and they generally do not have a lot of “seasons” like Voltage games do. Generally there are about 3-5 characters to choose from. So I guess it is fairly close to how much most games cost on Steam or on Vita. OH also, more importantly to those that love VAs – there is no voice acting for mobile games. One of the games I played just now (Scarlet Fate) doesn’t even have a BGM =_=. Didn’t know about it until I paid for a route and checked their FAQ page and confirmed it really is like that. So far all the other games I’ve played at least has a BGM.

From my experience, Shall we Date generally has a lot more chapters than Voltage games. If you still want to check out the Shall we Date series, make sure the icon has a white border around it and not the red when downloading from the APP store/Google Play. I accidentally downloaded Destiny Ninja 2 with a red border and I ended up paying an insane amount of money which I don’t want to disclose how much cos it was ridiculous. I slipped up and purchased a lot of “game currency” and I didn’t realize to first check how much each route required to be able to read without stopping. Lesson SERIOUSLY learned the hard way. LOL

2 bedroom story : Chiaki Yuasa

Omg.. I don’t know.. He is my favorite guy in all the Voltage series of mobages I’ve played so far. He is just so perfect imo. >___<;;; *dies* I mean, obviously not everyone would think so but he is just too much my type it’s not funny. Love everything about him. Normally someone who gets as jealous as often as he does is plain annoying but he doesn’t rage and get physically abusive with you. He’s also quick to understand the situation despite that. I don’t know if anyone irl would ever be like him though. It’s the first time I really wished I was with someone like him irl. ;////; Darn you Chiaki! I love how quick witted he is and how he is so cunning. However, that part about him being a genius in a lot of things he does is too much of a stretch, even for me. @-@ He is so capable that it’s just not real anymore lol. I wish they toned that aspect of that character a bit more. I mean, I know it’s just a character in a game but giving him more flaws wouldn’t hurt. 😛

Mobile Games

I don’t know why but I’ve somehow gotten into a mood where I really want to play mobile games despite being burned badly by Destiny Ninja 2 (Ran’s Route). I found out that you can pay for certain routes of your choice in some mobile games and you can even check out the first chapter for free. Then before I knew it I got hooked. Somehow my brain is just stuck in this mode where I really want to just read fluff stories. After playing so many depressing, heavy, intense or fucked up otome games, I just wanted a break from them – lol. I’m even worried about checking my credit card account as I been playing quite a bit already. =_=”’ Ugh. I just did and it’s costing quite a bit now since I played tons already. e_e;;

Destiny’s Princess : Thoughts (SPOILERS)

Okay.. Let me start this off real nice.. but WHAT THE FUCK is wrong with this game!?!?!? I mean, SERIOUSLY! What. the. fuck. I just did all the endings and scenarios and I am seriously dying right now, lol…. To be honest the only route I liked was Date Masamune’s route. It was strongly recommended for me to do Oda Nobunaga’s route last because of the spoilers, but after finishing it, all I wanted to do was just to claw my eyes out. I can’t undo or erase my memory of this game. I can’t. Just can’t! What the hell were these people thinking? I mean, seriously. I feel so bad for the MC. She’s actually alright although she seems to get scarily attached to the guy she ends up with. And I can’t say much about some of the guys as they pretty much pulled her into the worst outcome possible of their “story”. But Nobunaga really takes the cake. -__-; That was the most fucked up route ever. There were reviews about people hating the obscene amount of rape or something? But that’s not actually what bothered me the most while playing this game because in a way, I didn’t really consider their “advances” to be rape.. I mean, they need to be actually having sex for it to be rape right?! e_e’ The only time that happened was when the MC wanted it anyways but just didn’t feel it was the right thing to do at the time cos of their situation. It’s not that she doesn’t want to do it with them but more like the guys seem to like doing it at inappropriate times and/or places (except for Date Masamune, where she practically begged him to “do” her quickly JUST in case he wants to go back to his world. With Hanbei, the poor guy didn’t even get to do much with her except kiss). Anyway I’ll be writing more but will have to put it under the “MORE” link below as it will have a lot of spoilers.

OzMafia : Kyrie being a pedo

One thing I would like to discuss is this thing about Kyrie being a pedo towards Dorothy. I think the reviewers who said this are reading wayyyy too much into it. ^^;

This is in Kyrie’s point of view when he was talking about Dorothy in the grand finale and why she is so important not only to him but to everyone else living in that town.

“When I was dull and faded, a young girl named Dorothy brought color into my future.”

If you are in his shoes, a person who has done this for you would really become a huge part in your life and would become an important entity (unless you are a freaking ingrate..). It’s not just that he was able to think and remember, being given a brain has opened his whole world to so much more things! Also, imagine in Axel’s case as well. Can you imagine how amazing it would be to feel so much emotions after being given a heart? Axel also received “color into his future”. It’s almost like she gave them a chance to have what they never thought they will ever experience. Yes, because she invited them on her journey towards Emerald City to meet the wizard.

100% OzMafia! ~

I completed OzMafia yesterday and it was quite satisfactory even with all the bad reviews the people who played the japanese version had for this game. It’s definitely not perfect and there were a lot of fucked up stories and inconsistencies here and there. Some of them even get kind of out of character and it can get a bit confusing at times. I think overall, it’s still passable for me and I may be biased but Axel really made the game for me. Caesar is super hot but Axel still beats him by a wide margin. ^-^;

Axel – #1 Overall Character
Caesar – #1 on Hotness Scale

I wrote down the Epilogue + Grand Finale under the cut, as well as some of my thoughts about the ending and it is a ridiculously long read, so I just put everything else under this post as “READ MORE” as there’s so much spoilers and I don’t want to ruin the game for you all.

When I first saw this game, I immediately looked at the art so I can see if it was really pretty or not. And as soon as I laid my eyes on this character (Caesar, the guy with white hair above), I was like, OMG… I seriously, seriously really like how he looks to the point where I almost feel weird about it. ^^; I don’t even understand why! I was even content to just see him in the game, so when I found out he was a playable character, I wanted to buy the game even more! kekeke. Caesar’s definitely cute but he is quite aggressive actually and is serious when he says that he wanted to kill her at first. His story was so cute that I wished there was more of it. I was so sad when I find out about his fate in the grand finale. T-T; huhu…

 


 

As you can see, I have a lot of screenshots of Axel. I just really liked him THAT much, haha! I was sooo surprised. I think he might be my favorite Tsundere character. U_U” Yes, even way more than any other tsuntsuns I’ve come across in otome games and even in animes. I will be posting tons of screenshots below and I have written my thoughts/descriptions right below each image.

Fufufu. Thanks Axel, bby. TwT Keep showing me your cute and awkward moments. I can never get enough of it!

ozmafia12

Axel and his sugar addiction, LOL! He is like this all throughout the game and it’s so cuteeee!! X///D This guy loves sweets way too much!

ozmafia13

ROFLMAO. This is when he said he just can’t “take his eyes off” Fuka. And she said that she knows what it means but she can’t help but think of it another way. He’s just so fucking cute IDEK anymore!! lol

ozmafia14

Axel is as blind as a bat and completely useless without his glasses. Fuka found his glasses for him but he didn’t realize his face was so close to Fuka. Don’t move Axel! I’d like to tackle you cos of how cute you are. ;-; Which is funny because Fuka DID tackle (and even straddled him apparently LOL OMG) him in one of their transferred routes actually cos she thought he was too cute. It was in public, too! 😛

 


 

ozmafia15

Anything for you Caesar… <3 hahaha.

ozmafia16

HAHAHA! Caesar was being an asshole when Soh invited Fuka for dinner cos he made stew. At first, Caesar was annoyed but then he said wait, actually, you can stay. =-=; I was like Oh… He is being nice for once. But, NOPE, I was wrong. haha! Ulterior motives, yo! So Fuka got all the veggies without any meat. Caesar hates veggies and so he took all the meat and gave all the veggies to Fuka. XDD Caesar is such an asswipe in the first visits, lol. Funny though nonetheless! 😛

ozmafia17

LMAO. Yes, Caesar, I would like you to eat me. Chop me up and put me in Soh’s stew. =_= This is actually what he meant obviously, but I just can’t help it because it’s Caesar who says it and my mind always goes into the gutter, LOL. 😛 (Ah! Don’t worry, it didn’t really but I just thought it was funny, lol)

ozmafia19_caesar

Caesar working as a waiter for a day at Soh’s stand. Isn’t he so cute?! XD Also, this part was so fucking funny! OMG. I think the conversation went on like this when he was taking Fuka, Caramia and Axel’s food order. I just went by memory so it’s not 100% accurate. Caramia told him to repeat the order because he didn’t write anything down and he wants to make sure Caesar got it right.

Caramia : I want to order the sandwich.
Axel : I’d like to have the same thing the boss is having.
Fuka : Ahhh.. um.. I would like the rice omelette, please!
Caesar : Okay, got it. (proceeds to go back to process the orders)
Caramia : HEY, wait a minute. Repeat the orders. You might get something wrong.
Caesar : Ugh. OK, fine. (blushes as he repeats the order) 2 shitty sandwiches and a rice omelette.
Axel : Uhhh…. Right. Hold the shit, please.

Axel just seriously cracked me up. I didn’t expect him to say that, LOL.

ozmafia20

I seriously did not see this coming. O_O But I was like .. SHIT………… MY HEART, lol! STAHP EET!

ozmafia21

Yesssh! Protect me, Caesar! <3 Errrrrr I mean please protect FUKA from the deranged Hamelin. lol

ozmafia22

OH SCARLET, Please, PLEASE don’t look at me like that. You make me feel like such a pedo! ahahahah! Seriously holy shit, how can a shota be THIS cute! Something’s wrong with me. *dies*

ozmafia23

Hehehhe! Pashet dressing up for Axel, ^o^ lol. I don’t blame you hun for falling for him!

ozmafia24

OMG Axel! LOL I’ve never seen you talk so much at once. hahaha! This is like, the longest thing Axel has ever said in the entire game. LMAO.

ozmafia25

Awww! Poor bby. I would never, ever think you’re a creeper! Sure you’re quite possessive but you’re aware of it and you are always trying your hardest to be a great partner to Fuka. ^-^ He always tries so hard to make himself better for her. (oh, btw, what he says here is still considered quite lengthy compared to the other times he talks XD;; lmao)

ozmafia26

AUGH! What Axel said when I had to dump him for some other asshole. I think it was for Kyrie. -___-” Lol. My heart was literally breaking and I’ve never felt so damn guilty rejecting him. ): Sorry bby, I had to do this to get all the damn CGs. =.=’
