Awwww yeah! GrimmGirl is expanding and that makes me happy. I hope you are excited to start seeing more Otome themed rants around here because that is happening. I have been considering jumping into this ring for a while but I’ll admit I was a little hesitant.
Luckily I started following Pokeninja90’s blog (you can check out my rave about her at Bloggler in the Spotlight: Pokeninja90) and my eyes were opened to the world of amazingness. So being the awesome friend she is, she helped me out in choosing my first otome game for review on GrimmGirl.
Now it’s time for you to sit back and relax as I introduce you the world of Enchanted in the Moonlight.
Enchanted in the Moonlight is a dating sims game made by Voltage and is rated T for Teen. I downloaded it on my tablet and the initial prologue is free along with every characters first episode, which is nice. To buy all the episodes for a character costs $3.99 and each character has 13 episodes.
Voltage hooks you in with,
“You live a normal life until the day you’re attacked by otherworldly ayakashi, intent on stealing the special power you were born with. Your saviors also happen to be ayakashi, five very handsome ones!”
“We’ll protect you, human. But in return… You must offer your power to one of us.”
Ohhhh, sounds sexy.
On the tablet I have the choice of choosing between seven different ayakashi:
Miyabi a Kitsune (Fox Demon)
Chikage a Tengu (Black-Winged Demon)
Shinra an Oni (Horned Demon)
Kyoga a Werewolf (Wolf Demon)
Yukinojo a Yukibito (Snow Spirit)
Samon a Zashiki-Warashi (House Spirit)
Kiryu a Ryu (Dragon)
Basically in the prologue you learn that you were born with powers that can lend strength to the ayakashi. Some of them want to gain that power by eating you, others by putting a baby in you… the seven above are in the baby-making category. Meow.
You play the game by choosing a character to protect you and watch the story unfold. For my first character I decided to choose Shinra the Oni.
From here on out we’re looking at some spoilers! You’ve been warned!
Like I said above the first character I decided to play was Shinra and I am so glad I did. He is smexy as hell and totally adorable.
Shinra Highlights Include (but aren’t limited to):
He blushes 🙂 Ehhhhhh, that’s just cute!
His flirting is right up my alley. FYI I hate characters that are to forceful and borderline rape-y. He keeps things pretty sweet. He can be a smidge pervey but in an adorable way that’s more of a turn on then off.
He has a fun sense of humor. I lived for his scenes with the kids in the library.
Every character has one and I loved Shinra’s! First off I just want to say that when “you” start to remember your first childhood crush I knew it had to be Shinra!
I also want to go on the record saying that the moment stupid Taira came onto the scene I knew he was no good! Never trust someone with incredible neat handwriting. I’m telling you they are psychos in the making.
As proof Taira tricks you into believing that he is your childhood crush when in reality he is Shinra’s stupid sadistic older brother bent on ruling the Oni Klan. Shinra hadn’t seen him for years after a tragic accident (which he blames himself for) causes his brother to lose his Oni powers. Grrrrrr! Oh and spoiler alert your first love is Shinra. Awwwww!
Throughout the storyline you get to see Shinra’s sweet nature and help him to realize it is his kindness that makes him such a great leader for his Oni Klan. During the story you have choices on what to do/say in response to situations and your answers can lead you to either the “Happy Ending” or “Good Ending”.
Just a reminder this is a game rated T not M so if you’re worried about hitting some full on naughty scenes don’t be. Things are pretty tame.
I got the “Happy Ending” on the first try with Shinra, which I was pretty pumped about and I’ll admit it was much better than the good scene in my opinion, so you should aim for that. It has really great wrap up.
After you finish Shinra’s main story you can also buy the Epilogue (3 episodes for $1.99), Sequel (8 episodes with two endings for $3.99), and the Sequel Epilogue (3 episodes for $1.99)
I’m actually waiting to play through Shinra’s extras until I’ve played the main storylines of the other characters. This way if the other characters turn out to be douch canoes I have something amazing to look forward too. I like to think ahead.
Fun Little Things to Know
Translation wise this game is pretty darn good. I once tried to play Alice in the Country of Hearts on my phone and I lost interest super quick because the translations we’re so lousy. It really takes the fun out of things quick when your character is trying to say some sexy and you have no idea what they’re getting at.
The characters send you “emails”. I thought that was a cute extra touch and I hadn’t been expecting it so I thought I’d mention it.
So far I’m having a lot of fun with this game! I give it my stamp of approval. The nice thing about games like this is you don’t have to play through every character. So if you stick around long enough you can just read my reviews on the characters and download the ones that sound good to you! As for me I don’t think anything will beat my love of Shinra.
Don’t forget to comment below with your thoughts. Have you played this game before? What did you think?
Also be sure to look out for my next character review for Enchanted in the Moonlight. I’m starting Yukinojo the Yukibito’s main storyline next so you can expect a post up in the near future 🙂
Thanks for the sweet pictures interenet
