Scarlet Fate – Gentoka Review

2015-07-04 11.08.27

Basic Story Premise: You are Princess Tamayori, a maiden who is responsible for sealing and guarding a powerful sword that has the power to bring about the End of the World.  As Princess Tamayori, you have always known that your life is not your own: you live and will die by the sword.  But your quiet existence in a small hidden village is threatened by forces who want to take and use your sword for evil.  While on your quest for the sword, you find yourself falling in love with the mysterious but gentle fox god with a tragic past.  And even though you know that your only purpose in life is to be the guardian of the sword, you slowly start to yearn for a more normal life… a life you can share with Gentoka.  Will you be able to successfully guard the sword and prevent the end of the world? What will happen with the ghosts of Gentoka’s tragic past return?  Will someone have to make the ultimate sacrifice?

I decided to venture back into the realm of NTT Solmare.  I’ve tried them before, many months ago, when they basically only had the ninja type apps.  I’m not a huge fan of their some of their art style, and I wasn’t sure if I would like their story telling.  As a result, I’ve stayed away from their paid apps until now (and I don’t have the patience for their free apps either!).  When I read the free prologue for Scarlet Fate and saw the art, I knew I finally found an NTT Solmare app that I was going to spend my money on.  Have you already tried this one?  Did you go with Gentoka or with someone else?  Please feel free to share your experiences with me; I would love to hear them!

Oda Nobunaga – Budding Hearts Main Story Review

2015-06-04 23.05.20(Oh…uhm… Thanks for your generosity?  I guess I won’t have to worry about every being fired as a servant with people like you around.)

Basic Story Premise: Your old life as a simple farm girl becomes uprooted when Lord Nobunaga suggests that you become a servant at his grand castle.  Working at the castle is a new adventure, and you adapt to your new role while also finding time to become acquainted with Lord Nobunaga.  However, not everyone approves of your potential relationship with Nobunaga, and you find yourself victim to petty pranks and jealous rumors.  You can’t help but believe you are overstepping your role; after all, you are a mere peasant while Nobunaga is the ruler of the country.  Maybe the others are right: you are merely a hindrance to Nobunaga who is striving hard to unify the country.  Will you choose to stick by Nobunaga?  Or is that just selfishness?  Perhaps the best choice is to just let him go…

Seiji Goto – Main Story 2 Review

2015-05-27 21.23.21(What, are you sure?  I think you’d look pretty good in a cape…)

Basic Story Premise: You struggle to hide your feelings for Goto while being his aide.  However, it becomes more and more difficult when the two of you are paired to go on a real mission as a bodyguard for a political figure.  What happens when your mission takes a dangerous turn, and the gentle Goto you’ve gotten to know suddenly shuts down and turns cold?  Could it be related to his mysterious past?  Will you be able to break through to this new Goto before someone gets hurt in the line of duty?

Seiji Goto – Main Story 1 Review

2015-04-26 01.55.24

Basic Story Premise: You’ve made your way to an elite police academy, and you’re determined to become a good detective.  Your first few weeks prove extremely difficult: you fail miserably during most of  your academy exercises and start to doubt that you have what it takes.  Luckily, you are somehow paired with Goto and serve as his aide as you progress through your education.  Although he doesn’t say much, the few words he does share with you give you the motivation you need to struggle through.  (He also spends a lot of his time in his office without clothes on changing his shirt.  And if seeing a half-naked Goto isn’t motivating, I’m not sure what is.)  As you continue your training, you also try your best to help Goto with a difficult case he’s on.  But what happens when the bad guys kidnap the Chief, and you find yourself thrust right into the middle of a dangerous situation?  Have you learned enough skills to survive… and will Goto be able to help you before it’s too late?

Tsubasa Shirai – Main Story Review

2014-05-24 22.48.54(Tsubasa sure knows how to be a gentleman.)

Basic Story Premise: You ask for 10 more days to live because you’ve been put in charge of your first official project at work, and you don’t want to let this amazing opportunity slip you by.  It doesn’t hurt that the project revolves around a super popular and good-looking model, Tsubasa.  You’re initially quite taken by the cheerful model, but you quickly become conflicted when you realize that his friendly exterior may just be a fake facade.  Who is the real Tsubasa hiding behind the angelic smile? And speaking of angelic, what will you do when you discover that he is not just a celebrity model but also an angel?

Prince Kuon Casiraghi – Main Story Review

Hello, lovely readers! It’s been a long time (or, at least, it feels like it to me)!  Thank you for those who left supportive messages; they were all greatly appreciated.  I finally have time to return to the world of Voltage otome, but I don’t even know where to start!  So much has happened since my hiatus, and my long list of requests just keeps getting longer.  I’m going to start with a review on Voltage’s newest app, and then jump back to my list of requests.2014-05-14 17.19.33(Thanks for the warm welcome, Kuon.  Let’s get started!)

Basic Story Premise: You’re puzzled to receive an invitation for a potential marriage interview with Kuon, especially after your awkward dance the night before.  At the informal interview/dinner, you are wooed by a charming prince who showers you with compliments and– wait, hold on.  What am I thinking; this is Prince Kuon we’re talking about.  Nevermind, Kuon is still very much uninterested in you and actually bails out of dinner before even reaching dessert.  Whatever.  You return home content to continue with your normal life.  Imagine how surprised you are when you open your eyes in the middle of the night and realize that somebody is sleeping in your bed with you.  Apparently, Kuon has run away, and he blackmails you into hiding him at your place.  How are you going to successfully hide a Prince in your tiny apartment?  What is he running away from?  And why are you willing to go through so much trouble to help him anyhow…?
