It’s been roughly two years since MangaGamer announced they would be licensing another of Kalmia8’s otome games. Yesterday we finally received the long awaited news that F*** Me Royally!! will be released on December 17 this year, with pre-orders open now. The game will be priced at $29.95 (although there is a current pre-order discount and you can… Continue reading MangaGamer’s Latest Otome F*** Me Royally!! Is Up For Pre-Order
It’s been over a year since the Day7US Twitter account has been active and I was worried that they had stopped localising their games completely. Thankfully those fears were dispelled when the account tweeted earlier in September a sneak peek of their latest game – Wannabe Challenge. I noticed on their Twitter the game is marketed… Continue reading Day7 Announces New Otome Wannabe Challenge
Sifting Thyme is a mobile otome game by Nochi Studios. In the game you play as a nameable female or male protagonist who joins an elite culinary school.

Steam Prison is an otome game by HuneX and Dramatic Create. The game was originally released on computer with five romance options, a year later a vita release unlocked Fin as a romance option. In 2019, when MangaGamer released their localised version of the game, they based their release off the original computer release. Many fans… Continue reading Fin’s Route is Coming to Steam Prison
I’m back with another otome news round up post. I believe this is my third or fourth one, anyway I’ve finally worked out what headings I want to use and stick to. So these posts will be divided into four categories: ‘new releases this month’, ‘announcements’, ‘status updates’ and ‘posts on two happy cats’. The… Continue reading Otome News Round Up for June 2019

Earlier this year, on Valentine’s Day in fact, Otome Romance ( formerly known as Voltage Inc.) announced a brand new game. Ayakashi: Romance Reborn definitely caught the attention of all otome fans, with incredible art, an interesting premise and a kickass heroine. In April, I had the opportunity to interview the game director of the localised Ayakashi: Romance… Continue reading Interview with the Localised Game Director of Ayakashi: Romance Reborn
After the release of Eugen Wainwright in Lost Alice, many fans thought the story was over (including me). This was because when a new character is released, the NTT Solmare often teases the next character in the ‘character selection’ screen. I’ve also noticed a significant dip in the quality of the stories since the Grimm trio.… Continue reading Lost Alice is Moving to Story Jar
I usually aim to post these round ups at the end of the month, however, I’m currently on holiday. It’s kind of hard to keep up with all the happenings, so I figured I’d post this one a bit early and if I miss anything over the next 5 or so days, they can go in the June round up. So, with that explained, let’s check out the otome happenings for May 2019.
One of my favourite mobile otome companies, Day7, released a new game at the end of April. In Proposed by a Demon Lord you play as a woman who rushes to catch the last train home.
