Kakeru Kamui – Sequel Review

2013-08-28 15.16.19

Basic Story Premise: It’s time for the annual Demon Ball: an opportunity for the aristocrats from the Demon Realm to reconnect with the Royal Demon Family.  Kakeru decides to bring you as his date so that he can informally present you as his girlfriend to the rest of the Demon Realm.  The ball does not end as well as you had hoped, but you have no time to worry about it when the Demon Realm is suddenly plunged into a sudden state of emergency: someone has infiltrated the armory in the Angel Realm and stolen the Poison of the Angel Realm.  This poison has the power to seal away a demon’s power or, in its undiluted form, even exterminate demons.  Who has stolen the Poison? And is it just your imagination or does the culprit appear to be targeting demons from the royal family?  Will you and Kakeru be able to find the thief and stop him/her before it is too late?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the jump.  No walkthrough because both endings are available to read after you finish through the story once.   Continue reading


Kakeru Kamui – Main Story Review


Basic Story Premise: You ask for 10 more days to live because your frail older sister is scheduled to have her first child soon. You choose Kakeru, the Demon Prince, to be your personal devil because you know him from work. The two of you clash when he continually tries to order you around, but he stays true to his word about keeping you alive for 10 more days… even if it means hiding you from Rein, an angel who is trying to sniff you out (literally). Even though you’ve only got 10 days left, you start to enjoy the time you have with Kakeru. What happens when your sister starts having complications with her pregnancy? Will you stay alive long enough to see your niece or will you be found out by Rein and taken away to become “toast”? And will Kakeru ever admit he has feelings for you too or will he be bound by his obligations as Demon Prince and forced to let you go?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the cut.
