Otome games (sometimes shortened to otoge) are visual novels with a female protagonist, multiple male love interests, and story choices which lead the player down one of many routes towards a romantic ending. At their core, otome games are romance stories; however, they frequently feature an overarching side plot that is revealed slowly across each route.

Titles in this stack are sorted by most recent. Sequels and specials of TV anime are omitted. Where I've seen both the anime and played the VN, I've tried to give a brief description of what was covered.

Dance with Devils
TV, 2015, 12 eps Me:- Author:5
A multimedia project developed by Rejet. The otome game was released for PS Vita in March 2016.

The VN branches early into two common routes: one for the baka trio's routes (Urie, Mage, Shiki) and one for the main guys' routes (Rem, Lindo, <secret>). In the anime, the plot alternates between the two common routes, omitting and mixing events, while including main plot points of Rem and Lindo's routes. The baka trio get one episode each with some of their route adapted, but are mainly fodder.

Mage and <secret> are the least developed characters in the anime, which is a bit of a shame because their routes were possibly the best. ...You can pretty much take Urie and Shiki at face value >_>
