Otome Visual Novel Releases of November 2015

As if to make up for the very uneventful (well, save for QuinRose’s demise) October 2015, most of November 2015’s releases are highly-anticipated titles! Fans of honeybee’s second big hit Ayakashi Gohan will finally get to play its fandisc, Ayakashi Gohan ~Okawari!~. I’m looking forward to the extra raburabu moments with the Inushima twins! The much-hyped Bad Apple Wars by notoriously hit-or-miss Otomate will also be coming this month. It seems like the first truly interesting title in a bit of a while by them.

Then we have a milestone of sorts in Goes!, which is the second title by Petit Reve (their first was Soukai Buccaneers) set in a Japanese magic academy. It’ll be the first otome game to implement a completely female seiyuu only cast! At the time of its announcement, Goes! receieved so much hype that the official website crashed. Finally, there is Sousaku Alice to Ouji-sama!, which is an original title created by the folks who brought us the official otome adaptation of KobaKawa.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of October 2015

Wow… This was the easiest Monthly Releases post I’ve ever written yet!

October 2015 is a pretty dull time to be an otome gamer unless you’re interested in any of the ports and remakes coming out this month. At least this month is a reminder for me to finally play Ayakashi Gohan. Speaking of honeybee, they’ve also delayed Starry Sky ~Spring Stories~ to be released during sometime in 2016.

An “announcement” of sorts: I’ve decided to no longer publish detailed information about fandiscs and direct sequels. The information of fandiscs/direct sequels can often be spoiler-ific (even without me realising due to not having played the original games) and it’s better off to just not include them. In the process of trying to police them, I’ve also come close to spoiling myself a few too many times so I’d like to avoid that as well.

Last, but not least, Art Move Corporation, a.k.a. QuinRose, has allegedly gone bankrupt and stopped operating as of 25th September, 2015. I’ve briefly written more about this after the “Read More” tab.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of August 2014

New Releases:

~ Urakata Hakuouki ~Akatsuki no Shirabe~ (7-8-2014)
~ Ayakashi Gohan (29-8-2014)
~ Double Score ~Marguerite x Tulip~ (29-8-2014)
~ Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou: Miyagi-hen & Okinawa-hen~ (29-7-2014)

Re-releases:

~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol. 6: Vitamin Z Revolution (7-8-2014)
~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol. 7: Vitamin Z Graduation (7-8-2014)
~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol. 8: Sto☆Mani ~Strobe☆Mania~ (7-8-2014)
~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol. 9: Custom Drive (7-8-2014)
~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol. 10: Storm Lover Kai!! (7-8-2014)
~ Mune Kyun Otome Collection Vol 11: Storm Lover Natsu Koi!! (7-8-2014)
~ School Wars ~Sotsugyou Sensen~ Download Edition (21-8-2014)

Due to the delay of Otomate’s Binary Star from August to September, the usual “four-a-month” formula is maintained. For those uninterested in the new, the latter half of the “Mune Kyun Otome Collection“, which are budget re-releases of their respective games, are available for 1,800 yen each and QuinRose’s School Wars will be re-released on the PSN as a lower-priced downloadable edition. Some may have noticed that in the previous months, I didn’t bother to include entries of re-releases. I won’t be covering unmodified re-releases like I do with the new ones, but I thought it won’t hurt to include them on the releases list anyway, just so we all know exactly what to expect each month.

August has the illusion of choice when the re-releases are taken into account. It’s amazing that out of eleven games, I’m only interested in one. That game is Honeybee and Dengeki Girl’s Style’s first of the Photograph Journey series, which shines with its simple premise: meeting up with a pen pal you briefly knew in person when the two of you were children. It’s an adorable, simple idea that should work well as an otome game. Unfortunately, Honeybee’s writing tends to be mediocre, so I’m expecting a sorta-enjoyable time-killing experience rather than something that’ll blow me away.

Other than Photograph Journey, I think August will be a solid backlog month. I still haven’t finished Bad Medicine, so maybe I’ll get onto that.
