Men of Yoshiwara Kikuya Otome Review – Finding Love in the Red Light District

Men of Yoshiwara-Kikuya is a port of the popular Japanese otome game, Gyakuten Yoshiwara, developed by D3 Publisher and Dogenzaka Labs. In the game you play as a young woman who purchases time with a group of hot male courtesans. There are definitely quite a few WTF moments in this game given the premise, but the gorgeous artwork more than makes up for that in some places. 

The game was initially released on mobile devices and was later ported to the PS Vita in 2015, adding voice acting and a brand new port exclusive love interests, Itou Keiji. However, when the game localized in English and ported to Steam, they chose to use the non-voiced mobile release instead and swapped Keiji for a new PC exclusive character, Hayabusa. Later on in 2018 the game made its way to the Nintendo Switch.

I played a few routes in this game years ago, but never quite finished it, so in an effort to clean out my backlog a bit I’ve revisited the red light district of Yoshiwara and… this game is off the rails and I kinda like it?!

Dot Kareshi – We’re 8bit Lovers! II ~The Sky’s Kiss~ Otome Review

Dot Kareshi is a fantasy otome game series developed by Rejet that parodies the RPG genre. There are three games in the series: The Legendary Maiden, Tenkuu no Kiss,  and Yami no Hanayome. You play as a young woman who is transported into her favorite RPG. While there you must help the other characters complete their quests in order to return home. Each game takes place within the fictional RPG, Ultimate Quest and features love interests based on common RPG classes. The series can get a bit fanservice-y at times, but it always manages to stay juuust shy of a mature rating. 

While the series hasn’t had an official English language localization, in 2015 Golden Spirit released unofficial patches for all three games in the series.
