If she experiences supernatural events I wouldn't call her a normal high school girl.

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.


Not really, Diabolik lovers is R-15, there is no R-18 games on the psp, or any console for that matter.

R-15, not too smutty, but not too soft.

erm say that after you listen to the drama CD..
in both cases, my point is Diabolik Lovers and UtaPri are not similar.

I'm talking about the actual game, on the PSP, not the drama CD, they're completely different.
my point was that, in an attempt to enlighten those who wonder why they keep animating otome games, it's that they're hoping for some sales like UtaPri, but it's not gonna be easy because Diabolik lover was slightly above average in sales while UtaPri is among the 3 Top sellers.

I had a feeling this would get an adaption with how popular it's been. It has such great character designs and it's an otome adaption so I'll be watching this!

I think it's overreaching to assume that otome game adaptations are expecting UtaPri-level sales. No doubt sales like that would make them (or anyone) quite happy, but if 18k were the standard definition of "success" they wouldn't be able to keep making these shows at all. That would set an unrealistic expectation, and the investors behind these production committees aren't naive. The last visual novel (regardless of target audience) to average more than UtaPri was Clannad After Story, more than four years ago.

It's much more likely that the expectations are similar to the majority of male-targeted galge and eroge adaptations: mediocre-to-average disc sales used as a loss-leader to push OP/EDs, drama CDs, merchandise, and some sales of the original game as well. Should it catch on and get higher disc sales, great. But the business model can't revolve around that as a necessity.

It's the same with me, but I think I understand why a bit more now. My problem is that some otome adaptations try to pass out as some stylish and somewhat deep story when they aren't that different of fanservice harems in terms of substance.

Also, I find ironically funny how these adaptations targeted to the female audience can be sexist in a different way than male harems - the heroine tends to be useless, has no personality, gets the attention of all the guys and depends on them for a lot of things - and how its fans sometimes despise male harems for being exploitative and brainless tits and ass material.

Anyway, getting back to this new anime... If the game is long and the adaptation is short (around 12-14 episodes), I'll not even get close.



Wow, that's pretty... Disgusting.
(edit: the stuff about the game, I mean.)

I looked up the CGs after reading this, it's quite disappointing overall sadly. I certainly see some potential in it, but they fail to deliver properly. Well, probably wrong target audience. Give me a nukige with the same theme, MC girl would fit quite well into one of these.

E: Just noticed how low the resolution is, I probably got the PSP CG.. damn. Well, game isn't on sukebei, and I don't care enough for it to search more intensely for it now. A shame.

Yeah, that might be the case, but even then, i don't see much boost or profit from this, and that's why eveyone is confused.

@Mary_Vanucchi
There is no sexism in it, some people, especially westerners are just oversensitive to things, Japan, and most countries aside from america and a few others have no problems such as sexism or that kind of trivial crap, they don't overreact to these things, if everyone would find excuses and reasons to call out sexism, unecessarily, then i doubt the media would have advanced this much, even though there are some siginificantly negative points about it.
Otome heroines are normal girls, it's easy for the audience to identify with such characters, that's just how it is, on that note, as far as being useless goes, male MC harems are alot more useless going by that logic, there are plenty of exceptions, but most are lazy, reliant on others, and can't do much by themselves, though that meta is starting to change slowly as i'm see'ing alot more decent protagonists these days.

I doubt anyone would buy it if it were a Nukige, can't imagine a Nukige with multiple dudes and one heroine, it just doesn't make sense if you ask me.
the game is as otome as it gets, the violence and blood is a bit too much but i'm guessing that's just an attempt to spice things up for the consumers, instead of the typical flowery sparkles.

There are in fact quite a few of these, I even can think of one (Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo) where the protag is female as well. And with the hot and submissive MC girl here, and the multiple assertive males... I think it would make a fine nukige.

lolol hold on a minute, isn't Toki wo kakeru Shoujo a normal anime? mang you must be joking.
anyways, unless you're talking about Nukige as in Otome-nukige, R-18 otome that is, then sure, nearly every R-18 otome game is like this to an extent, if this were an R-18 then it would also sell, but Nukige means pure porn, and the only Nukiges i see are those short (and sometimes long) eroges, But i do recall Aromarie's Chou no Doku Hana no Kusari, which was an otome game with quite alot of porn in it, that sold alot, it had more than 90 reviews on Amazon.

Well, seems like I got on that old argument about "is sexist or not".
First of all: I don't consider myself a feminist and I know this group include some radical and oversensitive members, but I don't like how otome heroines are portrayed in otome adaptations - from a gender equality point of view. When you're playing a date sim is easier to have common girls as protagonists, so the player can insert easier in the game. But even this is not excuse for making heroines so dependent; I can see how girls can drool over some bishounen tropes, but isn't making the heroines so dependent an apology for dependence in the opposite gender?

Maybe I'm saying this because recently I played X-Note, a non-japanese otome game, and I enjoyed a lot how the heroine, Essi, had a convincing personality and good interactions with the rest of the cast, without detracting the interactivity factor of the date sim moments in the slightest, but my point is: making otome heroines as common girls is comprehensive, but do they need to be so dependant on the opposite sex? As a woman that was created to be strong by myself - and that doesn't mean I despise every romantic relationship in this world - , I "can't" get why other girls accept that their role as the heroines of many of those games is so much controlled by male influence. I won't get into that old generalization that "what you like says what you really is" but is true that some people are really influenced by fantasies from fictional works. And when we talk about pop culture from a country so conservative in gender matters as Japan, things look even worse.

And I won't even talk about how bad the lack of personality of the heroines translates bad into anime format where the audience has no interactivity with the story.

Also, about the male MCs: most of them surely are useless, but in the end they make the girls orbitate around them with no convincing reason. Also, the male-targeted audience of these harem shows is manipulated too, believing that in some fictional reality people like him can get the best of the girls. But it's just it, a fictional world.

...I hope this don't look like a huge mess...

Arghhh, why another psp-only! ;_; I got interested at otome-game, checked at vndb, and will be watching only because of Hikaru Midorikawa and Katsuyuki Konishi.
Either way, reverse harem anime are quite popular nowadays, huh... And it's another vampire-theme one. I'd rather go with Vampire Sweetie anime.

I know this is kinda off topic, but can tell me how much did UtaPuri sell anyways? I notice that a 2nd season is airing in to months so it must of been good.

Anyways, I'm going to try Diabolik Lovers first episode before I see if I will like it or not. I have heard about it but I'm not that big fan of otome games. The girls in them just get on nerves and I'm a girl.

I don't joke when it comes to nukige. And nope, I meant as in "regular" nukige, aimed at males. I'm not familiar with otome stuff, didn't even know they had otome nukige as well.

I guess it was around 18k.
I'm almost checking this UtaPri because of that. Is a true commercial phenomenon among otome adaptations, I want to know why. Also, some people that I know really liked, while they got bored with stuff like Hiiro no Kakera.

I doubt we would even know. The publicly available data is not good at surfacing long-tail type sales and particularly bad with non-media sales, which we never get a decent sense of. I prefer to stick with the simplest explanation: they keep making them because they're able to make money on it. Maybe it's not a lot, but it's viable. That's what small niche entertainment is all about.

18,010 average DVD+BD over its 6 volumes. Vols. 1 and 6 being much higher (25-28k) than Vols. 2-5 (13-14k), due to live event tickets and stuff.

You're taking this way too seriously. i don't mean to offend you or anything, but you also seem to be one of those oversensitive people who overreact to such trivial things.

Like i said many times, It's just easier for people to identify with "normal" heroes/heroines, and for the whole "dependant" thing, it's just a matter of preference, and it just happens that the majority are like that, and you seem to be mistaking something here, it's not that they're "dependant" on the opposite sex, it more like they prefer their heroes/heroines to be the ideal partner, i'm not speaking for everyone, but i can easily imagine a girl drooling over a strong guy who pays her attention and lets her depend on him and such.

as for male characters, well yeah, going by your logic and arguement, the media also tends to be sexist against males, making them look spineless and useless, but most people don't even pay attention to such trivial stuff, and i'm sorry that you feel that way, but you happen to be with the minority, so you'll have to let it go or deal with it one way or another, i for one, play a Visual novel for the characters, not for the MC that i'm supposed to identify with, and i'm sure most people do the same.

from my view, it does look like a mess, not to be rude or anything, but damn, that's too much drama and unnecessary sensitiveness. anyway, if you don't like depending on people and all that, then good for you, but my advice to you is don't expect others to be the same, the world is big and there are many kinds of people out there, no need to be stuck up about things and that goes for all of us, people should be more relaxed and take things easy.

holycrap dude, i just...
You do know that there is a normal anime with the same title right? Sorry man, i just thought you were joking because that's the first thing that came to mind lol.

and well, There isn't exactly Otome nukiges, just Otome with porn in it, like a normal Eroge, plot and porn, but who knows, they might just make a nukige otome at some point.

@jmal
Yeah, guess you do have a point.

Do I look too sensitive and dramatic just because I wrote a lot? Hey, I just tried to bring another look to the context of both male harems and reverse harems. Maybe I'm sensitive with some stuff that don't match my moral sense, but that's just as I said:

Mary_Vanucchi said:
I won't get into that old generalization that "what you like says what you really is" but is true that some people are really influenced by fantasies from fictional works.


I just like to look how some works reflect the way some "social and cultural rules" exist. It's one of my ways of enjoying (or not) anime, manga and any kind of fiction and understanding how they exist. That's why I prefer to not generalize any fandom, but I don't like to ignore the implications of fictional stories. Entertainment is a way of praising or bashing social values, I like to observe, agree or disagree with what they say.

Now, you say that some people like partners they can rely a lot, and I just wonder if this doesn't mean this person can't do too much for itself. The idea of females too dependant on male partners is often related to sexism, and not without a reason, since our society is clearly sexism and likes to treat women that takes the iniciative on their sexual lives like "whores, bitches". I can't help but be skeptical when a game aimed at females reinforces values like lack of independence; I'm sure I like stories with some degree of sexism (*cof* Death Note and its useless females *cof*), but they are really strong in other points and luckily don't focus too much on the bad parts.
If some otome adaptation comes with a good story and presentation, I'm sure I can enjoy, but any signal of lack of personality in a heroine will detract a bit my enjoyment. It can't be helped.

In a final note, sexism is not trivial, please. I'm tired of going through internet and seeing people blaming rape victims for the crime because they were wearing revealing clothes or - going back to the point about male harem MCs - going through otaku sensationalists sites and seeing those creepy otakus living in those delusions the japanese culture feed them, completely detached from reality.

But then, we're going off-topic, this is not the place to discuss that. Maybe I'll make a thread for this later (or if I'm too lazy, I'll wait until someone start one).

Uhm, okay, so let's just hope this doesn't get animated by Brains Base again, so we don't have to FORGET another horrible otome adaptation. I'll just see if it's any good. I am not really fond of the vampire-thing. Though it sounds perfect for smexy scenes, but still. Yay for another otome adaptation.

I see your point and i do understand what you're trying to say, but those dependant male and female MCs, also have the heroines and heroes that depend on them in more ways than one, you're only looking at the small picture, "Oh she's useless yet she has so many hot guys around her", oh "he's dickless sack of crap and girls are surrounding him", that's not the point you know, i'm not gonna get into details and stuff because as you said, this is going off-topic, and it is not the place to disscuss this, on that note, it would be wise if you don't make a thread about it, both you and me know that it will just lead to more shitstorms.

That's because you and oversensitive people like you want it to be related to sexism, if a woman wants to depend on a man (or vice versa) and the man is fine with it, then i don't see the problem, why shove your opinion and your views of what you think is not sexist and what a man or a woman should act like down other people's throat so that you can be happy?

that being said,
"I'm tired of going through internet and seeing people blaming rape victims for the crime because they were wearing revealing clothes or - going back to the point about male harem MCs - going through otaku sensationalists sites and seeing those creepy otakus living in those delusions the japanese culture feed them, completely detached from reality"

Don't you think that's very offensive to many people, and it's also sexist in itself?
No really, even i found that offensive, that's just negative generalising, and a biased opinion, i can take all sorts of crap thrown at me, but that paragraph is just too much.
Please think a little before writing something, and again, i'm not trying to be rude or anything. i'd prefer not to get into this kind of subject too deep.

It's always the same with this genre, with the kinda normal girl is victim of the most violent men who keep sexually assaulting her or treating her like trash, but she's kind of in love with one of them so it's ok. It's seriously fucked up, even more than the shonen with all the girls way too eager to undress.

I haven't tried these kind of adaptions before so it'd be something different at least. I'll watch it.

I remember when I only listened to the Drama CDs and thought "There's an otome game adaption, it cannot be that disturbing...".
And then I played the game OTL

Well, she doesn't accept everything the guys do o.o Even so, when I looked on the net for some reactions because Yui seemed like a case of Stockholm syndrome, there were some people saying that the creators don't necessarily approve of the... questionable content of the game, which makes sense.

Whether otomate and others are involved or not, I'm still having a hard time calling this an otome game.

I never thought in a million years that Rejet would try to adapt Dialovers into an anime. And it's coming. I'm excited as all get out, but I'm worried about how the anime is going to turn out.
