Shota is so cute! I am not usually into the cute loli-shota characters and because he looks so adorable and young its hard to picture me actually taking him seriously in an office or work environment. I’d probably end up patting him on the head a lot and saying “good boy” all the time, like a cute younger cousin. This is why I played his character last (And why I usually pick the cute younger characters last in these games) – Last of all the available characters at the moment.
Like the other voltage games, this story was purchased through the Game App itself. I bought it for 3.99 though iTunes. This story was 15 chapters long with a normal and good ending. The ending that you get depends on the choices that you make in the game. The story includes 2 rewards pictures and a bunch of emails to your inbox from the characters from the game.

I can’t help imagine Shota being shorter than me. Now I’m not saying I’m tall, because then I do say I’m tall people laugh at me. I’m 5 foot 2 , and a FULL THREE QUARTERS. I’m almost 5’3! As a Filipino/asian woman – I’m tall-ish. A lot of the asian guys I know are the same height as me or shorter. The taller ones are a maximum 5’6. My boyfriend is 5’6 which is a great height but only when I’m wearing flats. I wear my nice platform stilettos and I have to bend over a little to kiss him. I don’t mind it, HOWEVER, I’ve always wanted to feel “Tiny.” Like, have a guy tower over me, and be able to pick me up in his arms easily without complaining that I’m big or hard to carry (I’m slim so I’m not heavy). I have a thing for Characters like that, like Gaia (A Knights Devotion), or Mori (Ouran High school Host CLub) and Edwardo (Pirates In Love) OH AND Sasuke (Shall We Date:Ninja Love). So every time in my imagination I imagined myself talking to Shota, he was always the same height as me. (Is that weird?) And It kind of put me off, in the beginning.
When It comes to Shota’s personality he’s an amazing and unique guy! His persistence and enthusiasm reminded me of Sasuke from Shall we date Ninja Love, except a lot shorter, less rugged and in a suit. Also, because Shota is not from Japan and is from europe he is much more touchy feely in his passion with me. He is more honest and open than reserved, especially in front of other people. As I grew up in North America we are used to hugging, kissing, and stuff like that is no big deal, and that’s what I like and what I’m comfortable with. Sometimes in these games, because they are from Japan, and like this one is based in Japan the characters can be way too reserved for me to be comfortable with when it comes to intimate relationships. “OMG he’s holding my hand” – big deal, what are we, in high school? Is what I’m thinking sometimes. In fact I’d probably be accused of sexual harassment if I liked a guy out in Japan lol. I’m one who doesn’t feel comfortable in a good relationship without the intimate security of physical contact, like hugging and little kisses, holding hands etc. I very much liked how Shota was a bit more similar in this way to my type of relationship partner than most characters in these games.
I enjoyed the story a lot too. It had a great impact, climax and wasn’t boring. Shota’s 2 pictures were ok, The first one was too cute for me to like so much, but the last one was amazing. I really loved it (AND he is taller than me in that picture, hahaha) . Again, it disappoints me that there are only two pictures in this game per character. His emails are so-so. They don’t really have that much of an exciting romantic flair to them that I would like. They are more like pen-pal emails than office lovers emails.
I enjoyed playing this game, The happy ending was great and when I played the normal ending it actually made me sad! It interests me enough to play it again eventually which is always good, so I can get lost of fun for my money!
This game came out the week of the anime convention, so when I exhausted from sewing I was playing the game. I was really excited to play this game because it looks so good! It’s the first game that voltage has come out with a sexy animation opening! I really honestly watch it without skipping it every time i open the game. I love it! Like all other voltage games the app is FREE to download for Apple and Android devices and the Prologue is free to play. It is unavailable for any other platforms other than iOS or Androids. Main stories are then $3.99 each and Epilogues $1.99 each.
So far my impression of this game is very good. I’ve played it both on my iPhone and my iPad and the game obviously is exactly the same, and the iPad version takes up the full screen and the colours and everything are beautiful crisp and in hi-def.
Layout: The game is in the new ‘swipe’ style layout that we see in “My Sweet bodyguard” and “A knights Devotion” So indeed it has the same pros and cons as those other two games. I’m happy that It doesn’t crash every time I change screens however I do get stuck once in a while in a buggy loop in some stories which I can’t get out of without exiting the game. Its annoying, like those episodes in the second season of ‘The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” . If you watched it you’d totally know what I’m taking about. HAHA.
Drawings & Sprites: The drawings in this are some of the best I’ve seen in voltages games. I really like the style they used in this one, It’s a little bit different in the usual, and It seems like they have used new artists for this one. I like how ALL the characters look in this one, they all have their own kind of sexy unique flair and they don’t look too similar to other voltage characters. The way the Sprites smoothly blend into the background with no choppy outlines is good too, I was annoyed with the older voltage games because of the ugly white outlines.
Music: At first I thought the music was like cheesy elevator music. However, as I went though playing the game the music actually ended up penetrating my heart and now I love listening to it while I’m playing. One thing I don’t like about this game is that the music doesn’t go on seamless loops like most of the other games do. It always fades in and fades out which really annoys me. the only other game I know does that is “In Your Arms Tonight”.
Concept: The storyline concept is interesting. It is a more realistic approach compared to most other voltage games, such as “A Knights Devotion”, “Be My Princess” and “Love Letter from Thief X”. I find it a more lighthearted version of “In your arms tonight” Realistic and sweet but you don’t have the heavy burden of a divorce and cheating husband weighing you down. I like how it has something to do with fashion too somewhat, It’s an interesting job that MC has. I’d kill to have a job like that – Be in the fashion industry surrounded by hot guys? What girl wouldn’t.
Rewards: I love the drawings, they are some of the best I’ve gotten in voltage games. HOWEVER, unlike all the other voltage games we get only 2 pictures per main story!!! That was a huge disappointment. I was 8 chapters into Junya’s story and I thought i was doing terrible because I only had one picture so far and I got it in chapter 5 or 6… So I did some googling and i found out that there was only 2 pictures per story. Also for Toranosuke’s pictures, they used the pictures from the beginning movie for his. they were nice pictures but it was also the excitement of the surprise the pictures gave me which made the games exciting. It’s kind of disappointing if I’m missing that surprise. We get the good amount of cute sweet emails but that still doesn’t make up for the fact that there aren’t enough reward pictures.
OVERALL: I enjoy playing this game. I prefer even with my regular video games, and fiction books to have something either Supernatural/Fantasy/Sci-fi, in it but although this is a realistic story it is very good and I really enjoy how beautiful the music and drawings are. And so far I’ve played 3 characters and I love all their stories. I cant wait for the other Characters to come out. I just wish It had more Reward pictures!
