Voltage has just released their latest app, Our Two Bedroom Story! Continue reading for a general review of what is happening in the story and a brief description of each guy to help you choose which stories you want to read! As I read and put up reviews for each of the individual stories, I will link them to this post. And let’s get started!
Changes to the App: Looks like Voltage made some updates to their app format again. Take a look at this: Voltage kindly gave us a new sidebar to play with. I’m not sure if I like it yet. When I tap too closely to the right side of the screen, instead of progressing the story I end up hitting the sidebar (even if I am not tapping the upper right corner).
Also have to make a comment about the music. Voltage usually has a couple different types of background music for their story. There’s the “regular” background music that is usually present during most of the story. Then there’s “sad/emotional” music for the (yes, you guessed it) sad/emotional parts of the story. With this app, they also added what I will call “comedic” music. This music is for the parts of the story that are hilariously awkward… like when MC busts into the bathroom while the hero is trying to bathe.
Now let’s move on to the story itself…
General Background: You are a 26 year old woman working for a major magazine production company. Your mother announces that she’s met and fallen in love with someone. Although you are surprised, you give her your blessing because she is happy. Your new stepfather tells you that he has an extra house that you can move in to since living arrangements will be changing to accommodate your mother and stepfather. Unfortunately, he forgets to inform you that his son already lives there. (Seriously, how does a person forget to mention that? Maybe you should talk to your mother again and doublecheck that your new stepdad is legit.)
And his son happens to be one of your good-looking coworkers.
My Personal Take: In my opinion, this app appears to be a combination of Office Secrets and Seduced in the Sleepless City. Although I’m not a huge fan of Office Secrets (I found the story lines to be a bit dull), I am happy to be back in the world of adults. The last two apps from Voltage revolved around high school age characters. I’ve finished that stage of my life, and although I didn’t hate it, I much prefer reading stories within the context of an adult mind.
And let’s meet the cast! (Descriptions garnered from the Prologue and Minato’s story.)
- The MC: Innocent, slightly naive heroine. Easy to read. Loves her job with the magazine company. Is described as an employee with great potential.
- Minato Okouchi: Arrogant. Bossy. Rude. Will tease MC until her ears are pink. Reminds me of Subaru from My Sweet Bodyguard and of Prince Keith from Be My Princess. Review completed; check it out by clicking here!
- Kaoru Kirishima: Silent and aloof. Has a rather cold demeanor. With the little information I have on him currently, he reminds me of Issei from Kiss of Revenge. We’ll see how that changes as I check out his story.
- Shusei Hayakawa: May be a smooth talker, but in Minato’s story he is just a sweet, gentle coworker. We’ll see how he evolves as I check out more stories.
- Chiaki Yuasa: I believe Chiaka is supposed to be the Voltage hero who is younger than the MC. And although he seems sweet and innocent on the outside, he may have a more devious streak. Reminds of Mirai in Seduced in the Sleepless City.
- Akiyoshi Zaizen: The boss. Nickname: The Growler. Has noticed MC’s potential for greatness in the workplace, but doesn’t have much a personality yet.
And that’s the cast! What do you think? Who are you looking forward to the most??
