The F1 Love Gamble! Noel Aijima Spinoff ‘Notes From The Race’ Review (Seduced in the Sleepless City)
This special was bought on the iTunes App store for $2.99CAD. It’s purely a Visual novel story so there are no choices to be made in this story. It is 3 episodes long and you get one Reward Picture and there is only one ending.
I was on the Fence about how much I liked Noel’s personality in his main story (at least that’s what I remembered, I’ve played it only once and a few weeks ago). But his relationship and his attitude and personality towards MC in this has improved. He’s very casual laid back and he teases her a lot in this story. He becomes very bold and places a huge wager in this story that could end his career for the sake of defending MC! What a great story, I found it very pleasant and exciting and there was a big climax in my opinion. And even after the climax Noel keeps your heart on the edge till the very end of the story! It’s almost disappointing they ended it like that because your just left wanting so much more!
The picture on the other hand I wasn’t a big fan of. It could have had more emotion on Noel’s face, but I find a lot of the art in this particular game not as good as the ones in ‘Be My Princess’ or ‘My Forged Wedding’ anyway so I wasn’t surprised.
I like this story enough to be playing it again randomly when I have time. Its short, exciting, and sweet. Noel gets a huge part of my heart dedicated to him because of his story. I hope you like it too!
After watching that video of Ryoichi last night (in this post), and this morning ….and several other times throughout the day – I decided to open up the game ‘Seduced in the Sleepless City‘ again and play it again. as I was going through the specials page I realized that there was a new Ryoichi Hirose Special that I totally didn’t realize was there before! I got super excited and bought it right away! Here is the review for this special!
This special includes 3 Chapters with one ending. there is no choices you have to make in this special so you just have to read along like a normal visual novel. it comes with one email and one CG.
I completely understood why Ryoichi was voted in Japan the most popular of all voltage characters (at least that’s what I think that video was for. They had a vote last year for all the characters to battle in popularity) He is the most realistic, and has the sexiest personality because he’s such a tease. And you completely see all this and more in this short story. Even though I wasn’t able to make this story my own by being able to make outcome changing choices in it, I felt very satisfied about how the main characters role in this story was so crucial to a happy ending. She is truly the heroine in this story other than a supporting character.
Also Ryoichi teases you so much more than any character I’ve played other than Goemon from Shall We Date: Ninja Love. He loves to be affectionate and make out in public and is so suggestive and sexy even in public. It totally excites me and is more like the more passionate relationships we have here in North American Culture. But at the same time he is super romantic, which is something that I find North American culture has completely killed, to replace solely with sex.
Combining the romance, sexiness and the fact that the heroine saves the day it makes it a #1 ranked Special! The CG was great, a beautiful and passionate picture that I was very happy to receive and the email was sweet and sexy!
“I’ll thank you with my body later. Look forward to it!”
That line should totally be enough to make you want to get this! It was totally worth it if you are a Ryoichi Fan!
An angel came down from heaven and posted this video on Facebook that is on Voltage’s Official Youtube Channel! I DIED WHEN I WATCHED IT! Hirose is one of my favourite characters in Seduced in the Sleepless City. In fact i think he is my favourite character! Him and Satsuki Kitaoji are a very close match in my books – but anyway, back to the video.
Everything in this video is PERFECT. I’ve always longed to see these characters in the games in animation, with voices and everything and this video answered my prayers!
His voice is PERFECT!
The drawing was PERFECT!
They picked the perfect lines for him to say in this to completely KNOCK ME OUT.
And the last bit where he says “You’re not going to sleep tonight. I love You” I swear I completely died of blood loss because I couldn’t stop my nose from bleeding!
Seriously, Voltage needs to come out with more videos like this!
For anyone who hasn’t played Ryoichi’s Route yet, then you’re missing out! I will put up a walkthrough & review in the next few days for you all, after I’ve watched this video for the 1 millionth time…. If only i could change Siri’s voice to his on my phone… or just implant his voice somehow in my head so when i play and read it….ahh i can only dream~~
