Piofiore no Banshou – 30th August – Otomate


This month has a couple of games that I’m interested in getting but I’m being cautious because I’m not sure if the ones I like will end up being kusoge. Broccoli’s track record hasn’t been that great in their previous titles. I played Kamigami no Asobi InFinite and oh lawd I was so out of it after completing 2 main routes + 1 side route and it made me so jaded… I never felt like that with a game before until I played it so congrats, Broccoli. So I’m wary about Koroshiya to Strawberry…

With CharadeManiacs I’m half on board and half wary because the concept seems interesting but it all depends on how well its executed for it to be good. If you pull a half-assed twist that anyone can see a mile away then it’s not worth it (though CharadeManiacs seems to have a gold seal of approval from Famitsu, but they pretty much give those away like crazy). Ego to Koukai no Dilemma I’ll prolly wait for it to be a bit cheaper or something considering it seems like just a one character route game. (((Piofiore no Banshou I’m not 100% interested in it but it does seem to be interesting, if that makes sense lol)))

All in all, I’ll just wait for reviews to come in so I can properly make up my mind.

Anyway here’s a quick summary on each title:

CharadeManiacs is reminiscent of Zero Escape games and maybe a bit of Danganronpa but without a lot of gruesome deaths (I hope). The heroine and 9 other boys are kidnapped and taken to an unknown world with instructions from a masked figure that as long as you preform ‘their drama’ all your wishes will be granted–making the main cast nothing but ‘actors’ in a twisted play that is being puppeteered by an unknown force. It is later revealed that there is a traitor among them, making things more tense.

Koroshiya to Strawberry is Broccoli’s second ‘original’ PS Vita game (excluding ports, with Kamigami InFinite being the first PS Vita game). The story follows Ichigo, a girl who is mute due to a traumatic experience, who is whisked away in an attache case (somehow she had enough oxygen in there to make the trip) and delivered to a mysterious coffee shop. Ichigo is greeted by the master of the store, Tsukimi, who seems to know more than he lets. The store is a front where people who engage in underground activity (wet work etc) gather and it turns out Ichigo was sent there for ‘protection’ by protection from what… or who?

Piofiore no Banshou is set in a fictional city in Italy after WWI that is controlled by 3 different organisations called the Burlone Mafia. After a certain incident, the heroine “Liliana” is taken in by one organisation, separating her from her peaceful life. Why is she targeted? Why is she required? It seems like she holds the key to this mystery…

Tlicolity Eyes Vol.3 is the last volume for the Tlicolity series of PC games. This volume focuses on the eldest sister of the heroines in the previous volumes and is the manager of twin idols. This series focuses on love triangles btw.

Ego to Koukai no Dilemma is an R18 BL PC game where the protagonist, being bored with his high school life in an all boys school, tries to ‘romance’ a classmate that looks strikingly similar to a capturable character in an otome game his friend is playing… but his only intention in doing so was just a prank (bro) for him… unfortunately for him, his classmate takes the protagonist’s confession seriously. Hilarity ensues and by hilarity I mean, things turn dark and stuff gets out of control where the protagonist is being suffocated by his classmate’s love.

Mahoutsukai to Tenshi to Akuma is an R18 BL PC Game that has been delayed twice now… It was meant to release in June, then it was moved in July and now it’s moved to August. Who knows, maybe they’ll delay it to September too.

And that’s about it!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Kazuki Yone sensei not doing the CG so I have no hope for Broccoli. Mahoutsukai to Tenshi to Akuma has been delayed twice wow and the title is so simple lol. Thank you for this overview ^^

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yeah i noticed they used a stand-in for the CGs bc sometimes it looked wonky 😂 its a shame though, bc i swear they got kazuki to do the CGs for kamigami InFinite bc some of them looked great


  2. OMG A recently updated blog on BL games is HARD to find. I realized that I could rely on Google Translate for translating and I wanted to start stockpiling on real actual games. Could I bother you for resources? Or do you literally google search BL ADV XD

    Seriously, though, I’m ready to just go ham on this stuff. Mostly I’ve been translating my god-awfully-long list of idol games… But now I can get to some good stuff.

    If it helps, I’m really only interested in… how can I say this appropriately… straight up BL porn? Like No, Thank You and Naked Butler-esque but not…quite… that… I love the amount of sex but I would like a happier storyline?

    I’m sorry, I’m a complete stranger bothering you but I’m so happy to see your blog. ❤


    1. I usually get my info by looking at Cool-B’s online calendar but they hardly update. The Cool-B magazine is a nice resource for getting all the new BL game announcements but that’s about all I know.

      As for a game that has gratuitous amount of sex but a happy storyline not much comes to mind. Most BL games either have a serious and dark/sad story line or could be crude like Hadaka Shitsuji. There does seem to be an English made BL game in the works called “Full Service” that looks like it won’t be too serious or dark but still hasn’t released yet, though I dunno if you’ll like it as it’s more “bara” focused as in most of the guys are ripped af. It does look like it’ll have a more happy storyline than most BL games that come to mind.
