Soichiro Irie – Another Story Review

2013-10-24 22.55.51

Warning: This review assumes that you have already read through Irie’s Main Story (or at least reached his 9th chapter).  If you have not, I suggest you stop reading here to avoid needless spoilers.  You have been warned.

Basic Story Premise: When you are attacked at the party, Irie comes in and rescues you.  He apologizes for setting you up and explains that his desire to protect you is stronger than his original desire to use you for his own benefit.  After he confesses to having feelings for you, you realize that Irie is more important to you than your revenge.  The two of you start to date, but your brief moment of happiness is disturbed when you notice Irie starting to act strangely.  Then your coworkers share some hospital gossip with you: some people suspect that Irie has a secret wife or girlfriend.  No one knows for certain since he keeps his personal life hidden.  Could the gossip be right? Could Irie just be manipulating you again?  What secrets is Irie hiding from you?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and the one CG after the jump. No walk-through because there is only one ending in this story.   Continue reading

Soichiro Irie – Main Story Review

2013-10-12 05.05.13

Basic Story Premise: Irie becomes your mentor as you settle into your role as a surgeon at the hospital.  It doesn’t take you long to realize that Irie is a man of power at the hospital: by gaining his trust you may be able to access the director for your revenge.  However, you quickly realize that you are no match for Irie’s shrewdness.  You can’t help but wonder… are you the one playing him?  Or is he actually the one playing you?  If only you weren’t developing feelings for Irie, maybe you would be a better match for his wits.  Will you be able to carry out your plan for revenge?  Or will you just become a pawn in Irie’s larger game?

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

Warning: This review assumes that you have already read through Sezaki’s Main Story (or at least reached his 9th chapter).  If you have not, I suggest you stop reading here to avoid needless spoilers.  You have been warned.

Junpei Miyashita – Main Story Review

2013-09-13 22.33.31(Hmmm… in a normal situation, that is a good great thing.  But when I’m in the middle of trying to murder someone… maybe not so much.)

Basic Story Premise: You try to focus on your quest for revenge now that you’ve gotten your job at the hospital.  However, Junpei, an old friend from your past, seems determined to distract you.  Now that you’re back in his life, he doesn’t want to let you slip away again.  Even though you still care for Junpei, you quickly realize that a relationship with him will negatively affect your mission to kill the director. What lengths will you go to try to discourage Junpei, even though being rude to him breaks your heart?  Will you be able to keep your plot for revenge hidden from the person who seems to know you better than you know yourself?  In the end, will you end up choosing revenge… or love?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the jump.  No walk-through because both endings are available after you finish reading the story through once.  My review for his “Another Story” can be found right here.   Continue reading

Kiss of Revenge – Invite a Friend Campaign Images

Title screen

With the release of their latest app, Kiss of Revenge, Voltage Inc has included a new aspect to their otome games called “Invite a Friend Campaign.”

I personally think that this is a bullshit method they are using to have users shamelessly advertise their app for them.  Not to mention inflate their reviews in the App store with people who are begging for you to add their codes.  I’m already willing to download and spend money on the stories from the app.  Why do I need this useless social component?  If this was a free game, feel free to force me to add frends and leave messages on the boards of strangers like in the GREE voltage games.  I’m willing to jump through more hoops for you since it is free.  (You say “jump” to which I say “how high.”) But for an app in which I’m already dropping good money?  (Do I also need to wipe your rear for you?)

Anyway, the images you can earn are posted after the jump.  Enjoy them without having to beg people to type in a random assortment of letters and numbers for you.  Continue reading

2013-09-13 03.29.13(Hey, I’m a woman on a mission; there is no escape!)

Basic Story Premise: You decide that the best way to get close enough to the director and carry out your revenge is by getting close to his son, Issei Sezaki. It takes you awhile to break past Sezaki’s cold exterior, but you are slowly able to gain his trust. Unfortunately, you also realize that you are starting to fall for him. You struggle to carry out your plan for revenge against his father while getting distracted by Sezaki’s kiss. Will you be able to pull yourself together long enough to kill the director? And what happens to your vendetta when you realize that Sezaki may have played an important role leading to the death of your mother 12 years ago?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the cut. No walkthrough because both endings are available once you finish the story. If you are looking for my review for Sezaki’s Another Story, it can be found here.
