What’s it about?

The Charming Empire known as Teikoku Kaleido -Banka no Kakumei- in Japan, is a historical visual novel set in the Taisho Era, developed by OperaHouse and published by Dogenzaka Lab.


Our heroine, Amane Kosaka, was living a simple yet happy life in the countryside until one day she was suddenly taken away to live in the empire, summoned by her brother Soshi Amazaki — the current ruler. Though she was unaware of the underlying circumstances, she finds herself brought to this lively and palpable central city.

Living in the immaculate royal palace, our heroine comes to learn that the empire might not be as joyful as it seems.
Her brother is no longer the gentle man she once knew…
A corrupt organization secretly runs things behind the scenes…
The heroine’s fate guides her down the path of love.

final thoughts

PLEASE show OperaHouse and other game developers that there is a market for otome games in the West, by purchasing this game and giving them your feedback either through social media, by writing a review, making a video… whatever it is that you do! I can’t stress this enough: BUY THE GAME! Don’t pirate it, don’t steal it, BUY IT! 

Nothing shows that we want more otome games in the West better than cold hard cash, so please support this game by buying it from Steam!

If you were thinking about pirating this game…Don’t… It only hurts the otoge fandom, as companies will stop considering localization, and nobody wants that! So, do your part and buy the game!

do it
Support this game or Shia will haunt your dreams!!
