[Mobile] Quick look at…. ボーイフレンド(仮)きらめき☆ノート – Boyfriend (Kari) Kirameki Note – (Mini Review)

Boyfriend (Kari) Kirameki Note  is a spin-off rhythm game for Boyfriend (Kari)–a character/gacha game with prolly over 30 beautiful boys for you to collect. The Boyfriend (Kari) series is a brother game to the original Girlfriend (Kari) game, which was the first one to make a rhythm spin-off game.

Both Girlfriend (Onpu), the rhythm game, and Boyfriend (Kari) Kirameki Note uses 3D models during the rhythm game but sadly only Girlfriend (Onpu) uses full body models while Kirameki Note uses small, cute SD characters (chibi charas). I guess the devs creating this thought girls only appreciate cute chibi characters rather than full body models? I guess ya can’t get bouncing boob physics in male 3D models so where’s the fun in playing it? Who knows what their reasons are.

With Girlfriend (Onpu) they could only fit 1 character model, while Kirameki has 3. If Idolmaster Cinderella Girls can fit 5 dancing girls with good 3D models then y’all can too.

Kirameki Note uses the character songs released previously as the playable songs, tho its prolly not the full versions of songs but its good enough.

I was planning to make a breakdown post with translated menus and further details on gameplay but seeing that this game is already a month old I thought there’s prolly enough info on the internet by now that will help ppl out.
