Here's to hoping the heroine isn't some spineless fool like in most otome games.


lolwut, the heroines in most otome games are just your average normal girl, few exceptions have supernatural stuff going for them.

Yeah, not like we have enough shitty vampire fanfic-tier stories in the West already. I doubt this is going to sell decently, but well, good luck anyway.


i get the feeling that they're trying to pull an UtaPri, which isn't going to happen, UtaPri (and Hakuoki) are top selling otome games, and one of the few, along with Tokimeki, the rest sells below average-average, can't see how they expect it to sell decently, but as you said, good luck to them.

Lol Yeah, i heard the dudes are all sadists, usually it's one or two guys in an otome game that are sadistic, but this game is full of sadism, this could use some little sparkly flower shoujo feel man.

Otomes aren't my cup of tea so might pass on this.

Exactly -- just like how most MC's in harems are just your average normal boy, because wish fulfillment. (Though girl wish fulfillment annoys me a lot more then boy, I dunno why.)

Edit: I removed the picture from my post since its probably a spoiler anyway.

Yup, Average person surrounded by attractive people of the opposite gender is easier for people to identify with, like "i'm just a normal guy/girl so why am i getting so much attention", you know, something like that lol

Well, nothing that graphic is going on as the game was made for the PSP, and it's R-15, just your typical hot dominant/sadistic guy fulfilling some fantasies.

just saying incase someone gets the wrong idea and goes all "omg dis porn".

I'm willing to bet that this is gonna be an OVA. I mean, come on. After how Arcana and Hiiro sold, and judging by how AMNESIA's gonna sell...seriously?(But all three anime are almost crap imo so I'm not surprised by the sAles)

But then again, the recent OVA of an otome anime called 'Hanayaka Ichizoku bla bla' sold very poorly too so why would they make another OVA?
Unless...are these anime adaptations actually boosting the sales of the otome games?
So many questions...but, I'm 100% sure this will be an OVA. Unless, like Downgrade said, they want to go bankrupt.

Well, TV or OVA, all I'm gonna say is, Otomate and whatever studio is gonna animate this, please don't turn this game into a crappy anime.

Oh and as for the people expecting a strong heroine, you ain't getting one. =P Sorry.

as i mentioned earlier in one of my posts, it seems to me that they're trying to pull off an UtaPri sales, which is possible but not easy, I'll explain why, UtaPrince was already a huge success in the otome industry, it's one of the top selling otome games, so it wouldn't surprise anyone if it sold high, which it did. But after that, most otome games seem to be selling average, and they're adapting said average titles, but you can't expect them to sell because they weren't that successful. as for the boost, i'm not sure, if there is any boost at all then it's likely a small 1 or 2k at the most.

But like i said, pulling off an UtaPri is possible, but not easy, as it requires the game to be already popular and widely known with the audience.

There are strong heroines in Otome games, as in independent and have some kind of powers, but it's just easier for the audience to identify with average heroes/heroines, which is why most otome heroines are just your typical normal MC.

Story
Komori Yui is a normal high school girl, who often experiences supernatural phenomena. She moves to a school for celebrities "Reitei Academy", which has a frightening rumor of vampires. Yui borrows a room in her relative's house and begins to live with six handsome but sadistic boys. Later, she realizes they are not human...


The synopsis seems somewhat interesting, but does it really have to be that many guys? I'm probably gonna watch, but I'm not gonna be expecting much.

P.S. The designs are pretty sick (in a good way).

@Downgrade355
I'm not sure about the sales figures but the game itself is pretty popular along with the drama CD's (they're even going to introduce new characters with well known seiyuus). I doubt it's taking the same path as UtaPri, both are quite different considering the fact that Diabolik Lovers is R18.. and er the whole supernatural-vampire thing is just an excuse for 'action' to happen.
