Dangerous Relationship Kei Toyonaga Review

Dangerous Relationship is a celebrity dating otome game published by Dogenzaka Labs for PC and Switch. Kei Toyonaga is a rising actor, who is known in the industry for his mercurial temperament and womanizing ways. As a reviewer I always try to find at least one redeeming quality about every game. But, I had a really hard time finding anything good about Kei’s route in Dangerous Relationship.

Look at that smug face


You take on the role of a ordinary young woman, who just happens to be a stylist to some of Japan’s(?) top entertainers. You’re just a no name stylist at the moment, taking on odd jobs here and there until you land your next big break. One day you happen to cross paths with 5 top celebrities, it must be fate, because immediately afterwards you are hired to be one of the celeb’s personal stylist! What will happen when you end up working closely with a super hunky celebrity? Will love blossom or will you get burned?

Kei Toyonaga’s Route Review

So there are five available love interests. They were all pretty good looking, but it was Kei Toyonaga that really caught my eye. From the description and his looks, he seemed to be my otoge type, boy was I wrong. This route made me sick to my stomach, fucking sick sadistic bastard! I’ve played several other Forbidden Romance games and I enjoyed them all. But after playing this route I almost deleted every single one of them from my iPad.

Since when?

When I started this game I was optimistic. Sure, Kei would vacillate between being a complete jerk and being a giant tease. But, like a fool I overlooked it. He’s a celebrityI thought, If I could make it through all of Eisuke’s routes from Kissed By the Baddest Bidder. Surely this would be a cake walk. I was wrong! In the beginning he was snappy. Just how I would imagine a celebrity to act with his staff. But without skipping a beat he would laugh and tease the MC while flashing a bright smile that made me swoon.

I had been warned that he was a womanizer known for sleeping with all of his past assistants and stylist. But I naively thought, It’s an otome. He’ll fall in love with the MC and he will stop his playboy ways and do right by her. Instead what I got was pushy bastard that forced the MC into being his plaything.

First he started with a small kiss in exchange for his obedience. Then not more than an hour later he was forcing himself on the MC! After being his assistant for only 1 FUCKING HOUR, he rips off her clothes and has sex with her right there in his dressing room. And what does our MC-chan do in this situation? NOT A GODDAMNED THING! She sits there and takes it, hell she actually fucking enjoys it!!!! I wanted to cry, after all her big talk about not letting Kei take advantage of her she does the exact opposite. And don’t think I was meekly clicking away at all of the submissive and meek choices, HELL NO! I went out of my way to pick every bad choice I could find, it just didn’t matter!

No means, no, you sick bastard!

After their first time, the MC goes home and washes Kei’s slimy residue off of her body and vows to never go through that situation ever again! In my head I thought, Surely, this is where the story is going to take a turn for the better! Wrong again. In fact they keep having sex with each other. On top of that the MC develops feelings for this asshole. Meanwhile, there is some shitty subplot about the drama Kei is currently working on with his twin brother Soh and the sweet comedian from the prologue Akira.

Apparently his acting ability is garbage. But he’s such an ass to everyone he meets that the film crew and the director all hate him and badmouth him behind his back. You would think Kei would at least attempt to do his fucking job right. But nope, he thinks he’s the God’s greatest gift to mankind. So he ignores the haters and does whatever he pleases. Of course he drags the MC to Hell with him. Kei flaunts the MC around set much to the disgust of everyone, but especially his brother Soh. I swear Soh and Akira were the only silver linings to this damn route!

When Kei, finds another woman he stops bringing the MC with him to the set of his drama. So Akira goes out of his way to warn her about it. But, she is in too deep and gets all broken up by the whole thing. Then Soh, tries to help her out by showing her what a monster Kei. He invites her to see Kei flaunting his new woman around the set. When she confronts him about it Kei laughs in her face! Again I thought, Finally, she gets it, now maybe she’ll leave this bastard for good! 

And for once that’s exactly what happens she calls him over to break things off and the bastard ties her up like that shit in 50 Shades of Grey. He tells her she can’t leave him because she is his toy. He then presumes to fuck her brains out, while she begs him to stop. Then the weirdest thing happens, I don’t know if it was a glitch in the game or what. But he suddenly decides to call all of his side women and tells them he’s now a one woman man.

The MC, who can’t believe her fucking luck, takes this as a sign that he truly loves her and decides to go back to him. The next day she explains the situation to Soh who berates her for being a fool. But, she insists that he loves her and everything will work out in the end.

I’m aware…

What made this whole thing worse was the fact that the MC is aware of how fucked up this situation is! She knows and it doesn’t even matter! Then she and Kei share super luv luv time as a happy couple. Kei’s shitty acting rears its ugly head again. But with the MC’s help he learns how to act again no problem. However, his brother Soh’s acting has gotten worse all of a sudden. So he asks the MC to help him with a job, making Kei jealous.

Apparently Soh is in love with the MC too. This is what I wanted from the beginning, for someone, anyone to save me from this monster. But alas Soh is too little too late! This is where I finally rage quit the game…I just can’t finish this… I feel so used and dirty now. Kei is a horrible character and the MC is a fucking idiot! I kept hoping that either Soh or Akira would come and put me out of my misery! No matter how many wrong choices I picked the plot stayed the same.

Silver linings:

  • The translation was beautiful, no misspellings or syntax errors, you can really tell someone did their homework with this game.
  • Soh and Akira, were perfect, they tried their best to save the MC. But she was too much of an idiot to realize it. It’s a shame we had to meet under such unpleasant circumstances!
  • The sprites are beautiful, and the backgrounds (while stock BGs) were very well done and detailed.
  • The music was bouncy and upbeat which I liked.

So if you haven’t already guessed it I absolutely hate this route! Kei is a piece of trash and the MC is a delusional twit…After this I’m not even sure if I want to play the other routes in this game…

  1. Omg that sounds horrible and disgusting. What kind of fucked up bullshit is this?? Jfc, someone shoot whoever route and localised that game, take them out of their misery.
    I hope you run away and never touch this again, it’s not worth it. Ffs, someone must really like to troll gamers of they think this route is passionate and full of love 😬
    /hugs you because you need that and bleach to remove it from your brain

    1. I have two other routes and what I have read they should be safe…Kei is the only tragedy of the game… but I have no desire to touch that game again at the moment. It took alot out of me

      1. Did none of the reviews you checked about Kei warn about that trainwreck? I’m losing faith on reviewers/otome fans if that’s so ಠ_ಠ
        No wonder, I’m not sure I’d have touched mobage again if I’d gone through that (^_^;)
        May you forget this horrible dude and route
        /sends bleach

      2. No one ever reviews Forbidden Romance games, I went off the App Store comments. At the time they were all positive, when I checked last night there were only 2 Kei related posts and the very briefly mirrored my own feelings about the route.

        My roommates must have thought I was going crazy, because I was yelling at my iPad at 2 in the morning! But I said it in the post, I will not judge the rest of my mobage for the sins of this one shitty route. However I will be even more cautious about my purchases in the future (like I wasn’t picky enough already) lol

        *accepts hug and bleach * i need to do laundry today

      3. If no one reviews them, then it’s a warning to be careful. Funny that you had to discover those Kei reviews after purchasing and going through hell (^_^;)
        Your poor roommates must have gotten scared, I know I transform into a dragon when that happens 😂
        Yeah, definitely become even more cautious in the future, you don’t want to face Kei N°2 again (⌒_⌒;)
        Heavy duty laundry (^_-)

      4. This is is true, but there are a crap ton of walkthroughs for them.

        Forget my roommates, I was scared! I couldn’t believe I held on for as long as I did!

  2. …damn reading this made my blood boil XDD It’s always disappointing to see guys like Kei appear in otome games. Don’t get me started on MC-chan..smh. I feel bad for you, purchasing (or maybe not? please tell me you didn’t xd) the route and to be slapped in the face with this bs (pardon my language) ; A ; Sometimes I really think that my taste in men are weird cuz I’m totally not digging guys like Eisuke Ichinomiya, idk, I guess I’m tired of aholes (sure he may be sweet later but still.) and submissive MCs.

    1. I know right! I was so pissed! Unfortunately I did spend money on the route. But wasn’t much I’m the grand scheme of things…

      I don’t like guys like Eisuke, they always manage to piss me off! Oh man you should have seen me play Eisuke’s route…I had to laugh to keep from crying at how wrong the whole relationship was…

    1. ha ha ha, I am perpetually broke so I have to be tight-fisted with my money…plus I have been burned before, so I make absolutely sure a game is worth it before dropping a dime on it!

      But, I do take the goldfish approach too, but I have a stop gate that prevents me from immediately buying the first game that catches my eye. So it usually balances out in the end

  3. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    So he somehow topped Toma…..omg sorry you had pay for this asshole’s route. And I agree, he looked promising.

Gush about cute otome boys~
