Is it me or is there a noticeable lack of 18+ otome games in the West? Thankfully, MangaGamer is around to bring otome fans what they’ve been craving… actual smut in our romance games. In 2017, MangaGamer localized Kalmia8’s Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome (Bocchi Musume x Produce Keikaku.), a quirky rom-com that doesn’t shy away from the raunchy sex that has been missing in otome games—at least the ones that make their way stateside. Follow Ema Tachibana, a gloomy high schooler with resting bitch face (their words not mine) whose life gets turned upside down when the hottest guys in school recruit her to be their new pet project… think She’s All That, but with lots of kinky sex!
