Era Of Samurai:Code of Love Review – Soji Okita Main Story and POV (No Spoilers)

Hi~

I have a giveaway going on till August, to participate please leave a comment!

I am back with a new character from Voltage newest app Soji Okita from Era of Samurai:Code of Love. I wrote a review for the first character Toshizo Hijikata earlier, so if you are interested in that character too please do click here to look at that review.Or if you have already read the prologue and the opening movie, click here.

Prologue Review (taken from Toshizo Hijikata’s Review)

It’s basically a love story during the last year of the Edo period. ( Perry was briefly mentioned in the story, it’s when Japan starts to open up to the West, which is not a good news for samurais)

Edited: On a side note, I really like the opening movie and the music for this app. It’s really good especially the music, you can really sense the effort Voltage placed for this app. Love the song at the main page. I would buy it if it’s on iTunes. That’s how good it is. Back to the main subject…

So according to the prologue, the MC is a doctor’s daughter but he father died a year ago and now she’s running his clinic with limited medical knowledge. One night, while looking through her father’s journal, she was interrupt by 2 ronins ( definition: samurai without a lord or master) threaten her to shelter them from the Shinsengumi, eventually it broke into a fight, the MC lost her house to a fire that broke out during the fight. And now she’s stuck with the Shinsengumi who saved her and her father’s only medical journal from the fire.

Aaaand the part to choose the hero, you are gonna choose the person who’s gonna protect you while the rest would be going to fight more lawless ronins

–  Main Story SGD5.98, 400 coins –

The story starts where Soji was left to protect the base and you, but he thinks that you are a spy as the events that led you to the Shinsegumi’s base was too much of a coincidence. So he started to suspect the MC and is always teasing and scaring her.

I love the fact that the interaction between Soji and the MC is like a cat and mouse chase. He love teasing the MC so much that it became a a form of flirting. I like the way the MC is around him. They are like polar opposite, one kills, the other heals. It’s heart wrenching when the two of them belong to two different worlds yet the paths crossed and they met. And it’s even more heart wrenching when the MC was able to understand the reason why he was doing it and it shows her a different perspective of him.

It’s like a forbidden love for the two characters. And I love it, though not as much as the demon deputy but it’s nice and sweet nevertheless. I love the seiyuu that voiced Soji as its something you can imagine coming out from his mouth. I love that Voltage matches the looks and voice for the ending movie. And compared to both endings, I preferred the “fate” ending more than the “love” one. Even though I preferred the “love” ending for Hijikata.

I also like the fact that he was attracted to the MC due to her character which Soji often describe it as ‘white as snow’ and his is ‘stained’. But he couldn’t help taking his eyes away from her even though he know that he couldn’t be with her.. Argh! So heart wrenching!!! While reading, I could actually felt my eyes starts to water cause it shows how desperate they want to be together but they kept their distance apart.

Once again, the song and animation for the story was on the spot, I love that the characters have more expressions even if the details were subtle which is a nice change as it give the readers better visuals.

Is it worth the money? Unless you don’t like a cat and mouse relationship, this is completely for you! Moving on ~~~

–  His POV SGD2.98, 200 coins –

Okay, to anyone who do reads my review. I really love POVs, and honestly speaking (or typing) Soji’s POV was beautiful! His love towards the MC and the way he view himself as a threat to the MC but he just can’t stop falling in love with her innocence, yet he tried to distance himself from her to avoid bring harm to her (Aw..) But Soji make a mistake that every guy in either a drama, movie or game tends to do which is leaving the girl so that she will be happier without them. ( Always a mistake) But in the POV, you would be able to see a different side of him after he left her. Which is “aw~”. The things he do not want the MC to know would be reveal during his POV.

But this time the POV is written in an event form, so it goes by encounters. Plus its relatively short which is sad, as there are times where I would like to know how he would react daily but it’s not included within this story.

Is it worth the money? Even though the POV was not detailed enough, but it’s relatively fine. However if you do not like to read POV, it’s not recommended. (just get the ending set instead if you do not have the time to read it again for the second ending)

Ratings: 4.85/5

Conclusions:Both stories are not that bad, both endings are really good too. They have great storyline but it’s a little different as most story will let you squeal like a fangirl, this will make your heart chip a little. I will buy this all over again if I have to.

 

Do like,and comment. Thank you!

Next character: (if there isn’t an update for Samurai) Saeki or Tamaki from My Forged Wedding

Bad boys Do it better! Review- Ryoji Ryukai Main Story and Epilogue

Hi~

Another Bad Boys Do it Better! Review! No spoilers! Maybe some details, but I wouldn’t ruin the story, promise. I actually made a review for Rei Todo. Read it here if you like this review (>人<;)

Okay, a simple introduction on the app:

Your mother would be joining your dad and you decide to stay in Japan to continue your studies. By the end of your first day of school,you realized that you have enrolled into this all boys school and dorm without knowing and you decide to just go with the flow with your mother support.

Main Story, SGD5.98

So for Ryoji, he is the typical rebellious boy with a soft heart. He’s someone who’s a little violent but kind. So he actually confess to the MC first and the MC for his story is a little annoying. I was quite lost with the MC’s “do I really like him” thoughts. And the entire story is like 2 little kids not knowing their feelings when it’s already so obvious.

It’s a vanlilla, first love, sweet heart story, but if you are looking for something more mature, this is NOT for you. Don’t bother spending that money for it. To me, MC here not very likable, she’s a bit hesitant which makes it annoying but I like how straight forward Ryoji is.

Epilogue, SGD 2.98

So the MC and Ryoji started to date, and they would have issues as the MC would start to go crazy with jealousy.

This app is full of puppy love, it’s so young and fresh that it’s so annoying (heh heh) Maybe it’s too young for my liking, story was also a little draggy and cheesy. But I do love the interaction between Ryoji and the MC, but the plot gave me a “urgh! Really?!” feeling.

~Conclusion~

Not a very long review, as Ryoji was one character I don’t really look forward to, hence my expectations was not that high, which I am glad that it was not high, cause the story plot was not the best in fact too cheesy for my liking.A typical high school manga story plot, if only there’s more details about it

3/5 (Draggy and cheesy story plot with not enough details. Not recommended even for time kill reading

Review MPD: Close to you Yukata Tennoji ( Main Story – NY )

Hi~~~

It’s been a while since I have done a review. And recently, one of my best friend have been pestering me to read Tennoji’s NY even though I have finished his story to Armed and Engaged.( She’s the one who introduced to this contradicting love for otome games). So I decided to review after reading his NY story (SGD4.98)

A little info for MPD :

You are a small town police woman, who’s really kindhearted and would always think of others before herself. One day, you received a transfer to the MPD, where all of Japan’s most skilled detectives are. But you are being transferred to the 2nd Unit aka The Misfits and that is where your love flower would bloom.

The Prologue is really interesting and different, as most of Voltage Inc’s games are very fairy-tale like, MPD is actually one of the few where they actually put in effort on character development not only on the heroine and the main candidates but also on the other candidates as well. Which is something I recognized, but not keen to play with.

However, Tennoji was not my biased in this game, so I was not very keen to even read his Main story not to mention NY.But that ^^ friend that i mentioned before, she’s crazy for MPD. She bought all characters’ stories, from Main Story to NY, no kidding (She’s crazy for a reason,but I still love her anyway). So that make me start reading Tennoji’s road and let’s start with the Main Story, I will try not to spoil too much but I think I will anyway, so yeah~

Main Story’s Review ( SGD 4.98 )

~Image from Main Story Episode 10~

Tennoji obviously did not like the MC as his partner, He felt that she would be in his way of everything, but as the time that he and the MC interacts, he opens up and start to recognizing the MC as a person he could trust and rely on.

He’s loud and would throw a few insults that doesn’t hurt to the MC and as time went by, the MC realized that he wasn’t as scary as she thought he was, she would throw back to him. And this little interaction makes the the comedic dynamic duo of the 2nd unit. He’s also quick to blush but romantic at the same time. When he and the MC bicker together, it’s very sweet and will make you go “aw~~~”. 

He is a great character but he’s Main Story is a little weak, I think I expected too much but it  was not as sweet as I thought but nevertheless still sweet.

( I will skip the Epilogue, but leave me a comment if you want)

Sequel ( SGD 3.98 )

~Image from Sequel Episode 2~

So in my opinion, this is where his story go downhill, the interaction between Tennoji and the MC are still equally sweet but the case they are handling is very coincidence, it’s like everything was going very smoothly not much impact or even a tense moment, it’s sweet that the MC was always trying to be his side and accompanying him, but that’s all and not much happened for the case.

BUT, I have to admit, he have the most dream-like proposal so far. You can see from the preparation he done just for the proposal how much he love the MC, it’s so sweet that girls should show their boyfriend and hint them. His proposal was really surprising, but he is the only person that you would expect this from him. His love for the MC is something he’s proud of, very proud. He always want everyone to know that the MC is his girl, obviously. And his proposal shows it all.

If anyone is hesitated to buy this just because you are afraid it’s not sweet enough. The last few episodes make it up for everything.

 Armed & Engaged ( SGD 4.98 )

~Image from Armed and Engaged Episode 10~

If the previous case have too little action, this case have too much action. So much that is overwhelming. There was not even much lovey-dovey among the MC and Tennoji. and when there is, it became too cheesy, my cheesy meter went off the roof, too much for me to handle.

Among all the stories in his route, this was the most cheesiest , tasteless, overwhelming episode, that would make you wonder what was the storyboard department was thinking about.

Last but not least….

NY ( SGD4.98 )

tumblr_nt70lhfzk71t3ns2ao4_1280

~Image from NY Happy Ending~

NY was really mind-blowing good. It was epic, the case end with an unexpected ending. The flow of the story was well-written, I could not put it down. There’s enough interaction with Tennoji and the MC, some guest appearance from the previous case. The way Tennoji and the MC blushes when their proposal was mentioned, and the way they panic when it was being described was really cute and sweet, it makes you forget that they are engaged.

The inner conflict that the MC had as a detective and as a finance. It shows the struggle having your spouse within the same force. The silent comforting moment they have, was very reassuring but conflicting at the same time.

As for the ending, I prefer the Happy Ending as it shows the urge and the tender love that Tennoji holds for his love of his life, it’s so sweet that he’s hinting the MC to just married him already, which girl won’t want that to happened.

This marks the end of my review for Yukata Tennoji from MPD: Close to you. I would update this post soon, so that I could review it from different prospects, however in conclusion, Tennoji is an overall good read (except for Armed and Engaged, way too cheesy for my taste,comment if you like it though), I sincerely hoped that Voltage don’t drop this, the way it’s going is really well-written and planned.

Anyways,

Have fun playing~
