I HAD TO SHARE THIS GAME I REALLY DID. When Voltage shared the video on their youtube channel for this game I was not only excited because of the magic element but excited because some of the main characters looks like Tomoe from Kamisama Kiss!! When It actually came out this week I was so excited I downloaded it right away and played it right away! I NEVER EXPECTED THIS GAME TO BE LIKE THIS!!!!
Lets go through the basics quickly before I vomit out all my rainbow feels from all the excitement I have bottled up. Here is the opening movie.
Price and Layout: The Layout is unique but follows similar structure as “Metro PD: Close To You” I guess we will be looking at unique layouts for every game that comes out from now on. The theme and colours are so beautiful! Prices are as follows.
$3.99 CAD for Main Stories (12 chapters Plus 2 endings), includes 4 reward images.
$1.99 for Epilogues (3 chapters) includes one reward image
$2.99 (7 Chapters plus 2 endings) includes 3 reward images
One thing that has been updated in this versions layout is that there is a rewind button! This makes me happy because I love going back and immediately rereading things and I don’t like having to quit the story and having to start the chapter again to re-read. ESPECIALLY goes for this story and how it is because, Well I’ll get to that later. One thing about this game though, that it easily crashes when you try to multitask and jump to other apps. Not every single time like first gen Voltage apps but more so than the Second gen. But you’ll want to ignore everything else when you play this game anyways so it’s nothing really to worry about.
Music: I was moved with the quality of music that Voltage came out with for “Serendipity Next Door” Which topped my favourite Voltage game of all time when it came out. And because of that I was a bit disappointed in the music for “Metro PD” – it was good, just not my style. This games music tops all the others! I love it so much that I will leave the app open in my purse when I’m not playing and let the music play for me to listen to! The theme is very Asian inspired and every version of it they have in the game gives me so many beautiful feels! It totally makes game play even better and helps me get more emotionally involved in the story!
Characters/Art: Welcome to the most unique of characters in a voltage game. The sprites and the character designs are otherworldly are beautiful in every way! They all have many different forms: Human, Full Ayakashi ,and Casual Ayakashi. Each of them looking similar to their respective traditional Ayakashi stereotypes we see in animes – The characters I always fall in love with!
Miyabi: Kitsune Fox Demon =) HE REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF MY BELOVED TOMOE FROM KAMISAMA KISS! I love Miyabi! He is a typical Sneaky fox and is cocky and pushy! He is like a demon version of Shinobu from Serendipity next door whom is my favourite character of all time. He’s extremely forward and pushy and VERY perverted!!
Chikage: Tengu Crow Demon – Is a sexy kind version of Kurama from Kamisama Kiss. He is beautiful with his thick black hair, quiet and peaceful, he has this detached feeling to him and he never smiles. Although he is introverted he is a gentleman when it comes to treating women. =) Polar opposite of Miyabi.
Shinra: Oni Demon – Shinra seems to be the token younger character of the group. He is passionate, cute, easy to agitate and very easily excitable. He really gets strung along by the others sometimes and gets teased a lot.
Yukinojo: Snow Spirit – Very kind and intelligent. He is never aggressive although he does kindly scold the others and acts most like the adult out of everyone. He is mysterious and for some reason knows a lot about the human world, unlike the others. It is hinted that he knows a lot about women, but how and why is a complete mystery.
Kyoga: Wolf Demon – Same as our favourite wolf demon from InuYasha. Unlike his InuYasha counterpart this sexy wolf is older taller and looks like he has a lot of swag. He seems to be a lady’s man, and he refers to himself as hot-blooded in every sense of the word… His curly hair and his sexy goatee DRIVE ME CRAZY. I LOVE HOE SEXY HE IS! XD
Samon: Zashiki-warashi House Spirit – (Not included in the love interest list HOWEVER he seems likely that he will be added in later) Very kind and calm Priest of the shrine that your family own, you’ve known him the longest. He is always smiling and cheerful and very reliable and sweet. He is the most responsible of the bunch and takes care of you really well. He is the picture perfect cute best friend who lives next door. The type of guy I would love to marry. ~^_^~
Plot and Story: As of right now I’ve played Miyabi’s Main, Epilogue and Sequel and his are the only ones that are available at the moment. But OH MY GOD IS THIS STORY REALLY GOOD. I cannot say for the rest of the stories but Miyabi’s story in particular is VERY RACY!! – Something that has never been done in Voltage games before. According to the prologue you (as the main character) possess special blood that the demon world need to gain special powers and these Ayakashi have been sent to take you as a bride and bear a child! Already the plot has to do with sex! And I thought this was going to be another innocent and sweet voltage game but OH,HOHO~ I was pleasantly mistaken. Although it doesn’t get too graphic in nature, the main character gets into many sexual situations! The story is ultimately about love and romance yes, but adding in this extra spiciness as well as the danger of death at your door makes this game the BEST VOLTAGE GAME IVE EVER PLAYED. I’ve been kind of wishing for a long time that voltage would take a step in the direction that Solmare has done in “Ninja Love” and “Ninja Destiny”, without overdoing it AND MY PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED IN THIS GAME. It has just the right amount of sexiness in this game without overdoing it at all, and story wise everything fits in and makes sense. It also has been an emotional rollercoaster so far, on which I’ve felt so much love for Miyabi and felt my heart broken and cried. So in every other aspect to be honest this game delivers well.
I’ve played all of Miyabi’s routes twice already, back to back in one day. LOL. The only other time that has ever happened EVER was with Shinobu Narita in Serendipity Next Door. Get the game here On Google Play and here for iTunes App Store.
Anime North if finally over! But the sweat-shopping cosplays is still happening! Theres no time to rest Colossal Con is in a week!
I am working on My Vlogs as well as a Free! Iwatobi Swim Club Cosplay Video As well as a Mirai Nikki Cosplay Music Video for a final Project that I only have 3 weeks to do…
So for now here is the Pinkuukiss Colab Vlog with me DigiRin and Lexxie =)
I shared a hotel room with them and despite the ordeal we went through bringing DigiRin to the Emergency from 11-6 AM , We had a lot of fun!
What happened was our hotel room wasn’t clean and she ended up stepping on a needle/nail embedded in the carpet and it braking of in her foot! The doctor in the hospital couldn’t take it out because it was too deep and she had to be brought around in a wheelchair all weekend, and she couldn’t wear her cosplays. WORST of all our phone in our room didn’t work , the elevators broke down in the hotel which meant she was stuck there Saturday evening till thy got fixed and the customer service managers were out of this world super RUDE and INAPPROPRIATE. The manager had the nerve , while Digi Rin was crying at the front desk while we were talking to him about how we were being treated about the whole situation to tell her,
“You look pretty when you cry.”
LIKE DA FAUQ?!?! WHO SAYS THAT?!!?!?! IS HE ON CRACK?!?!?!
Couldn’t deal with these people at all.
So the moral of this story is, NEVER STAY AT THE SHERATON HOTEL TORONT AIRPORT – NOT FOR ANIME NORTH – NEVER EVER EVER!! THEY SUCK AND ARE RUDE AND THEY ARE TRYING TO FRAME US FOR THE NEEDLE BEING IN THE ROOM WHEN IT WAS CLEARLY NOT ONE OF OURS. After she got the needle out – she had to have a 2 hour surgery for it on the following Wednesday – She called the hotel because the needle didn’t look like a sewing needle so it couldn’t have been ours. And they told us that they went into our hotel room while we were in the hospital and HAVE PICTURES OF NEEDLES ALL OVER THE FLOOR, IN THE BATHROOM AND THE ROOM. We brought like WHAT 4-5 needles and Digirin had ALL of them with her as she was working on her costume in the hospital!!! So they must have gone out of their way, brought needles into our room planted them in there to take incriminating photos so we wouldn’t be able to sue them!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS AT ALL!?!?!
Anyways back to the better half of anime north. I had a lot of fun with them despite all this stuff happening. DigiRin was amazingly positive the whole weekend and a lot of hilarious YOLO-ing happening – I will have my own Vlogs from my Channel up really soon. as well as more PinkuuKiss Vlogs from Anime North! Now I need go back to studying and sweatshopping my Colossal Con Cosplays.
This week I put up this video on the PINKUUKISS channel. I did a Costest of Yun0 Gasai from Future Diary/Mirai Nikki for a movie poster assignment for my directing and producing class on Friday mornings. And honestly if i can get away with it, I will use any kind of excuse to use a cosplay for shoots and assignments for school.
I might as well Make a video of the Makeup Application in the Process =) HERE IT IS!
Here is the Final Copy of my Assignment. I finished it late at night ad it was only worth 10% so I didn’t spend so much time on it.
I also did a bunch of Fansigns for my friends on Facebooks using the knife as the Fansign!
So you can check them out by clicking here! Facebook Fansigns by OtomeJunkie!
I haven’t been up to blogging in a while because I’ve been so busy with work and school, and being sick and getting ready for Anime North. Sorry about that! I wanted to share some stuff that I have been working on lately. If you follow me on Facebook you would have already seen these videos when I had uploaded them.
I have Collaberated with Digi Rin Cosplay and Lexxie Cosplay – Two amazing girls I met at ConG and they gave me the great opportunity to join in their Youtube cosplay channel.
HERE IS ME! My First video I put up in March =) About my Cosplay History if you would like to watch!
And my video inspired Lexxie and Digi Rin to do their own Introduction videos. So HERE THEY ARE =)
Finally I’m out of the hectic School semester! I’m really sorry for not posting the requests right way but I had already started this post already, so don’t fret! I’m not ignoring you guys! I’m just behind! Its been a really REALLY rough few months. I promise to try to not neglect this too much because I’m always ITCHING to write more for you guys and GUSH about these beautiful bishies and wonderful stories. The uniqueness of this game really pulled me in! It’s like a cross between “Love letter from Thief X” and “Seduced in the Sleepless City” jacked up with more adventure. Here’s the Opening Movie.
Price and Layout: Kissed by the Baddest Bidder is Free on the iTunes store and Google play. All the stories go by the standard voltage prices: $3.99CAD for main stories and sequels, $1.99CAD for Epilogues and $2.99CAD for Side Stories. This is in the newest style user interface which I like more than the second generation style. I find that these more recent games have more detail in their art as well. Every story (including all the epilogues and sequels) available to read the first chapter for free which is great. Similar to the Second generation, the story auto saves at the end of each chapter. Also similar to the First generation voltage interface there is a section where you can view all the images conveniently without having to scour through the characters chapter section. I’m glad they brought this feature back, I didn’t like searching for images. The only thing I find annoying is the sidebar that appears when you tap your finger too close to the right edge. It is the most convenient place for me personally to click to advance in the story without cramping my hand so it is a bit of a problem when I end up opening the side bar all the time.
Music: I love the music so much that I’ve downloaded the soundtrack and have been listening to it non stop ever since the game came out! Voltage has definitely upped its game with all the brand new releases. In this particular game the Jazzy style upbeat music really suits the casino and dangerous adventure vibes and coupled with the beautiful jazzy piano it makes a soundtrack that is good enough to even be used for mainstream TV. This definitely helped make game play more exciting and more emotional. The songs are so catchy that I cannot stop listening to them!
Characters/Art: Again Voltage has outdone itself bringing us such beautiful characters and wonderful art. They’ve stepped up their game even with the loading screens, and User interface. The characters in this game actually each remind me of the Japanese F4 from the J-Drama. Each of the Characters Sprites are drawn really well as usual and although it still hits the character standards that voltage sets in each game -The Tsundere, the ladies man, the Cold Quiet awkward one, the young mischievous one and the older one – I find that each character has a refreshing look (especially Mamoru! OH MAN, he looks so delicious!) and also have a very unique part to their personality.
Eisuke Ichinomya: Owner of the Casino Hotel Tres Spades. Personality-wise He’s the KING OF RUDENESS. Totally reminds me of an Older version of Tsukasa from F4 just not so stupidly clumsy. He’s got a mischievous side to him which is really exciting and refreshing. He’s not to mention HOT. He kind of reminds me of Kakeru from “10 days with my Devil” except the drawings are much better in this game. Every single one of his sprites is amazing ESPECIALLY the one with the mischievous smile.
Soryu Oh: Mafia Boss. Personality wise he’s cold and cruel and very strict. Personally at first glance he really isn’t my type, he wears his hair down sometimes which is REALLY sexy though. And he really grew on me. Especially with his hair down he reminds me of Li-Ren from Hanasakeru Sheishounen, just a little – but enough to make me gush.
Mitsunari Baba: Thief – The Modern Day Lupin! My FAVOURITE of the characters since the prologue. Personality totally reminds me of Tsukasa from F4 however his appearance looks like the Ji-Hoo Yoon from the Korean F4. He is a Cassanova, womanizer and is dangerously charming. His charming smile, devious eyes and his long hair drive me absolutely crazy. Everything about Baba is my type of man, At least in these types of games. Every single one of his sprites make me swoon like crazy.
Ota Kisaki: Famous Artist. The younger mischievous sexy blonde who reminds me a lot of Sojiro from F4. He likes to have fun and cause trouble especially together with Eisuke. He is friendly to a certain extent although he is very good at putting up a poker face and conning people with his charm. His looks remind me of Syo Kurusu from “Uta No prince Sama” but older and much taller. I imagine him to be talking with a similar voice as Hiro Shimono as well.
Mamoru Kishi: Scetchy Detective! I am so impatiently waiting for Mamoru’s route. His appearance reminds me of an older more rugged Tsukasa from F4. All I really know about him is that he smokes (yuck) and he acts like he is super lazy all the time, although I have a feeling that it’s just all an act. I really love his short curly Tsukasa style hair and his goatee is really sexy. His sprite is really cute especially when he smiles and weird enough looks away when he’s bored. Girls ya’ll know what I’m talking about when an asian guy can pull off the facial hair.
PLOT AND STORY:As of now I’ve been able to do all the Available stories as of today, which include the Main Story, epilogue, and Sequel of Eisuke Ichinomiya, Soryu Oh, and Mitsunari Baba. As always I will be doing reviews (when I get the chance) of each separate route. So, I’m just going to talk about the writing in general in this game. Just like in all the brand new Games such as, “My Two Bedroom Romance” and the latest release “Serendipity Next Door“ Each main story is a standard of 12 Episodes, with an additional Happy and Good ending. The Epilogues are as all voltage games 3 episodes with one picture, and the Sequels are 7 episodes long, with the 8th being split either into a Happy ending or Good ending.
With me having played many voltage games, it does seem like as the newer stories come out they have less episodes, with some of the older voltage games having sometimes up to 16 chapters in the main stories and most older voltage games having 10 chapters in the Sequels. However, as I read them I fell like the writing and story has not taken a toll at all by the “shorter stories”. I don’t usually time myself because I most if the time end up playing during random times of the day, but I feel that to make up for the lack of chapters each episode is a lot longer then the older voltage games. This feels true especially when I have to fast forward though a chapter when I need to catch up to where I’ve stopped if I haven’t stopped at a save point in the game.
Each Story is very rich and deep with amazing plot and I have not been once bored at any point in this game. I don’t feel like the plot is rushed either being constrained within a 12 Episode frame and I also feel like it goes along with a very good pace, where it is always stays exciting. I really enjoy these Slice of danger comedies that Voltage comes up with and honestly with every Release they seem to get better and better. And I really like how unique the concept of this game is.
By the Way I’ve Already started replaying these Routes over again, And doing so So soon after I’ve played them last already lets you know that these stories are worth their weight in gold.
I’m back again on a ‘Be My Princess’ rampage! After playing Joshua’s story and seeing Edward in it I had to play Edward’s story again. In the beginning, when I first played this game because of his role and his personality in the prologue( not to mention his striking good looks only second to Joshua), Edward was the one I was anticipating the most at the time. I’m not entirely sure why, but it possibly was because I was in a very different state of mind back then then I was now I was a little disappointed with how the story played out. It wasn’t my kind of story back then I guess. And as I was playing Prince Joshua’s story I was very compelled and captivated by Price Edward once again, and I thought to myself, “How on earth did I not enjoy Prince Edward’s story?” And thus I had to play it again especially now that everything in my life has changed and I am a completely different person compared to back then. I am extremely happy I did.
Prince Edward’s story like all others was purchased through the Be My Princess App for $3.99 CAD and is 16 chapters long with two endings. Your choices that you make in the story determine wether you get a ‘Good’ or “Happy” ending and they also determine how many of the 8 reward pictures and 15 emails are unlocked. Yes! I got 15 wonderful emails from Edward and Louis ^^~.
I really recommend that you only use my walkthrough as a last resort when you are frustrated and cannot get the happy ending. It is definitely more fun for you to play and work it out on your own first so you can feel more immersed into the story. But incase you need it, here is what I chose in oder to get my happy ending.
- Ask which ones are his favourite
- Go to the Opera
- I was deeply moved by the opera
- I’m Glad
- Ask for Louis
- Thanks for bringing me here
- Thank you very much
- Lend one by one
- I think so.
- Stay at the party
- it feels a bit like that
- Mr. Edward
- Don’t worry about me
- Yes, I was
- Yes I was with him.
- instinctively follow him.
- Go towards the Passage
- Thank you for everything
- What about prince edward
- Please return to the stage
- Leave immediately
- shall we find something to eat?
- Hesitate to pick up
- Return to your world
- Because we like each other.
- Believe that Ed will come for you
I honestly don’t know what I was thinking the first time around, when I played this story and didn’t enjoy it because I fell so hard and so in love with Edward this time that I was brought to tears quite a few times during the story. If I were to compare this story and Joshua as well to Edward I’d say I probably like Edwards story more. Edward is literally the Perfect Prince Charming. He is handsome kind, caring, loving, sexy, gentle and romantic. I personally love Joshua because his naive personality is cute as well as his flaws. But in Edward, I cannot find anything about him that I can even consider a flaw! Everything about him is exactly the way a perfect boyfriend or husband would be like in my opinion! The closest thing that comes to a flaw in my opinion is that he maybe too kind and too compassionate… BUT who are we kidding, that isn’t a flaw at all. This world is so filled with selfish assholes that no amount of kindness and compassion can make up for it from one person. He also is tall and is so beautiful, very manly and yet bishie at the same time.
The story itself is also amazing. Like Prince Joshua’s route there is a very shocking plot twist that happens but I won’t ruin it for everyone. But I want to note something very different about Prince Edward’s story that is probably unique to every other story out there, not just comparing the Be My Princess stories but a lot of other Otome games. This is the biggest reason why I loved this route so much, and why I am now declaring it to be my favourite route of all of my games. Most main stories in these games the conflict resides in the struggle between you and your crush. Meaning, you are not sure this person returns your feelings, or that other person is pushing you away despite his feelings towards you. It’s a struggle that results in at the very end that person confesses their feelings and yay, You finally at the end have a relationship. In Prince Edward’s story it is completely different. Edward right from the beginning knows that he loves you, and right from the beginning you slowly develop your relationship with him,and Edward NEVER doubts his feelings for you. In this story it is you and Edward, two people who are in love struggling against the world. You understand Edward’s feelings completely and he understands yours but it is the world that is trying to tear your love apart instead of the internal struggle between the two characters. It is also the guilt that you hold for each other “Is my love for them hurting them because of this conflict?”. This makes me feel confident that perhaps, Edward is the one character that loves the main character deeper than any of the other characters. At least thats what I felt.
That was such an overwhelming feeling of happiness because ultimately thats what everyone wants in a partner. We all want our partner to be truly and madly in love with us, to accept us and to be confident about their feelings towards us. We want a partner that is confident enough to say “I love this person” and mean it and say it to the world even though the world might not approve. It is literally a fairytale romance in my eyes. One that deep deep in all our hearts we hope that we find for ourselves even though we know that realistically real world relationships will never work that way. Are people nowadays capable of loving each other as deep and as throughly as this? In my case yes, I can and I have, but tragically was never returned fully in the same manner and after seeing many relationships easily go sour for me as well as my friends I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t exist. It’s like Samantha says in Sex In the City, “The right guy is an illusion – you don’t understand that, you can’t start living your life. ”
Edward also gets top marks for having amazing reward photos and emails. Voltage nowadays with the newer games are getting ‘chincy’ (I donno if anyone uses this word anymore) with the emails, I got 15 Emails from Edward from this story and every one from him stole my heart away. In the last Voltage game I played I got 5, and that was from the newest game “Our Two Bedroom Story”. We don’t get as many as we did with the older voltage games. And like I’ve mentioned before, BMP has some of the best art if you compare all the voltage games, and Edward’s pictures are no exception. They portray how wonderfully romantic and handsome he is in all of them, and I always end up going back to using them as my phone wallpapers.
This is defiantly one of my Top Stories and Characters in the Voltage Game Collection. I would play this one over and over! And I definitely recommend this to anyone who is into stories about Fairytale Princes and True love!
