No spoiler review.
I went into this game really blind, only knowing that kaito and namidai was in it, has high reviews and has an interesting setting of obvious discrimination in a school setting. Despite me thinking ‘phantasm’ in the title meant it was going to go otomate way, making everything strange the result of some magical or demonic force, Daisy*Daisy bound the story up quite well, leaving realism with realism and peeling off the layers of mysteries slowly.
Essentially, Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen is like Kuroshitsuji (public school Arc) meets Caste system, complete with horse riding and dogeza bowing, with some apartheid district thrown into it too. While I wouldn’t say it’s a human drama kind of story since I was mostly angry throughout the game rather than sad, the romance was well written and believable, with enough cutesy bits and interaction with the love interests to make it a proper otome game. It’s rare that I’m satisfied with the romance in an otome game, and that’s already a plus point. Continue reading
This game didn’t interest me very much when I saw the words ‘Demon’ and I didn’t even bother looking through the website. I thought: “Huh. Another demon thingy? Bo–ring”. But after flipping through DGS I thought ‘hell I wanna play this!!’ And so here I am, to introduce this game for RPG lovers like me.
Well it’s not an RPG but when you have a Warrior, a Mage, a Fortune Teller and the Majoou, what else tingles but your RPG senses? Throw in other random bits like a handsome prince offered as a sacrifice to you, your loyal servants who taught you swordfighting and Batou(s) you with sarcasm, what else can you do but rush to your favourite online store and pre-order Majoou?!
In a world where magic exists, a castle where the demon king lives stands alone in a deep dark forest. The heroine is the daughter of this demon king. One day, her father receives an oracle from the dark god and has to leave the castle for a while, leaving his daughter to take over the throne temporarily. However, it is a difficult position since many demons(magic users) kill humans for fun and the humans view the demons as enemies.
Will the heroine, who has feelings towards humans be able to fulfil her role…?
Insert song + some CG
Kuroyuki’s art is really nice. Rejet seems to be a company that targets older girls, with stories of dark themes and Black Wolves Saga is one of those. The BGs in BWS is always on the dark side, and while it emphasizes the characters, it also creates the atmosphere of the story very well. But the game is definitely not short of a R18 for all the sadistic scenes.
In the midst of a disease Zodiba raging through Weblin, the wolves are going around massacre-ing entire towns. As a result, a rumour spreads saying there is a witch using the disease and the wolves to kill people so she can obtain eternal life. Our heroine comes into play here, being a Rapunzel in a tower and being sickly from young, kept away from the world. She is accused of being the witch, brought into the castle on trial just before she turns 16. OF course, this is all a farce because Mejojo, the first in line to the throne is obsessed with her and wants to bring her into the castle. The heroine’s sis-con brother Nesso and her dad Edgar has refused Mejojo’s marriage proposal many times over for a couple of reasons so Mejojo and Orje utilise the rumour of the witch to bring her into the Continue reading
