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!
