Minus Eight – Review + translation

I know I said no more reviews until end of April, but I’ve completely abandoned my work for next week, since I’m going to go crazy soon. This is another one of the backlots I’ve been dying to play but never got around to it. Another original idea by RejetxOtomate! I just had to play this (smirks)

——————————————-

Basic story:

The heroine being unable to pass her other high school entrance exams due to either having had fever or seriously bad muscle aches from entertaining loser guys at her middle school, ends up in Mogura Gakuen, and starts the first year of high school, meeting 8 boys from her class known as the ‘Zannen Boys’ (Pitiable boys)

The school principal tells them the school has a debt of -8 million and is going to get torn down if the number of couples in the school doesn’t increase, because the government will give the school financial aid if more couples are formed during the first year. (wth lol) In comes the heroine’s homeroom teacher who has a 35 year loan on his back from buying a mansion and begs the class to start dating so he won’t get fired from his job. The students start introducing themselves one by one and first comes:

Kazahara Maya

Tall and not bad looking, he stands up to introduce himself and-.. DA HELL?! He has the high pitched voice of a girl or kid! He tells everyone to rely on him should they need help and that he’s a leader-type of person, but despite all these, the heroine instantly thinks ‘it’s pitiable… his face and voice don’t match at all!’ A good friend with Otohiko.

You can also adjust the text box transparency to your liking, and the text style has a very different feel from Toki which I played recently so I was all ‘woah this!’ and ‘woah that!’ over the system ehehe. As expected of a fairytale-like story. Everytime you choose a right option, the love catch will make the guy sparkle (lol) it’s really nice. The cottage also has a hansel/gretel feel:

—————–**Basic Guide**————————–

1-While doing the prologue, up all characters’ points (2 for each character = 8 selections) and save it for a common slot so you don’t have to redo the prologue again. It helps to click-save on each selection so you can go back to it immediately if it doesn’t give you lovepoints. (In case you didn’t already know haha (・∀・) )

2-At night before leaving for red world, click save before choosing which character to encounter. (in case you make a mistake which is quite unlikely *_*) To meet Kai and Ivan, Continue reading

Eikoku tantei mysteria – Summary + Review

There are a few themes in otoges that have been done to death: Alice in wonderland, Ayakashi and Demons (Idea F- and Otom- needs to start thinking up new concepts -_-) I LOVE victorian concepts, and this concept of detective Holmes has not been much touched, maybe because good mysteries themselves are hard to write. The mysteries in this game are pretty easy and no complicated details like time of death and everything so it was a little lacking but nevertheless, pretty good. But this game is so damn long…

Characters who appear:

-Erlock Holmes Jr (son of Sherlock)
-William Watsons Jr (son of John)
-Lupin Jr. (son of Lupin)
-Jack Za Ripper
-Akechi Kenichiro (classmate of Holmes Jr)
-Kobayashi Souji
-Pendelton (Heroine’s butler)

-Sara Maple (female classmate, friend)
-Hudson (caretaker at 221 Baker)
-Sherlock Holmes (father)
-Lupin (father)

The personalities of Holmes and Watson JRs are pretty much reversed. (from the Continue reading
