HELLO. I AM HERE BECAUSE I NEED TO SHARE MY JOY.
I have just received the best new of the year.
Two of my top two Otomes are releasing their final chapters to wrap everything up!!!
After a damning 2 years of waiting, procrastination and need for constant distraction, I will finally be able to properly date all my husbandos in Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms and Code: Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~. Like finally. Proper handheld sexytimes for me to giggle at in the comfort of my own home. Finally, and end to the cliff hangers.
HAPPILY EVER AFTERS FOR EVERYBODY.
I’m so fucking pumped you guys have no idea.
Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms
(Not my fav ship, but still one of the cutest scenes in the game.)
Also known as my bae with blades, who did next to nothing with my playable character is Kyoto Winds.
Like you know, after playing through 12 bloody routes the least you could do was give me a CGI of a kiss to hold on to right? You know, throw the thirsty fangirl a bone?
But no, they didn’t. So for the last 4 months I’d been binge reading fanfiction and stalking the tumblr fandom because I was dying for more. THE FANDOM WAS DYING FOR MORE. And we’ve suffered enough. We will finally have our baes with blades actually be nice to us and not be complete tsunderes like in the last game.
The game has finally begun. Like for real this time, let the serial virtual boyfriend dating be-fucking-gin. Nothing can stop us now.
Code: Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~
Also known as the game where you’re a really pretty girl and your reverse harem is full of men so charming and swoon-worthy BUT THEY CAN’T BLOODY TOUCH YOU BECAUSE YOUR TOUCH MELTS ANYTHING.
Why tease me like this.
The best part is that unlike Hakuoki, the guys in this game actually want to be with you, and aren’t all about honor and detachment.
BUT. THEY. JUST. CAN’T.
This game has hurt me in ways I cannot describe. The endings were never satisfying enough. The only person who could kiss the main character wasn’t even a human being but some space time warlord who was immortal but eventually lost his immortality to protect her so now he can’t anymore.
But in Bouquet of Rainbows, they’re probably gonna find a way to let her touch things without gloves because there probably wouldn’t be a storyline without it.
Oh by the way she gets a marriage ending with all of them.
I. AM. STOKED.
My bad end would probably go like:
And to make things more wholesome and less trashy, it seems like she finally finds her father and gets some sort of happily ever after on her normal ending.
I’m not sure how they’re gonna do that, since we kinda killed both her little brother and father entity in the last game, so… I’m super excited to see how everything pans out.
Both games are coming out in March 2018, which means I have to finish all the 2017 otome games I’ve been putting off before then.
Sigh~ If only Norn9’s SSL gets a translation next year.
Dialolik Lovers too, goddammit.
