The Crimson Flower that Divides Lunar Coupling First Impressions Review

The Crimson Flower that Divides: Lunar Coupling (Koezaru wa Akai Hana) was originally released in Japan as an 18+ otome, and later released as a slightly watered down version for the PS Vita a few years after that. The Crimson Flower that Divides: Lunar Coupling is a Switch port of those versions—and as is the trend with more mature otome localizations comes with the sexy scenes significantly toned down. Western otome fans want their smut too. But, that aside I figured I’d give the trial a try and see if Crimson Flower is worth picking up.
