Hey Grimms ❤
Today’s Otome post is probably teetering on rant mode. You should probably just brace yourself for that. I wouldn’t say full on rant mode just a teensy bit ranty. I hope you still enjoy it though because I do feel like I’m bringing up some adequate thoughts.
As you might remember a while ago I did a post on my first impressions of Voltage Inc.’s Liar Uncover the Truth Spring Break Event and now that it’s over I’d like to follow up on that. So here are three things that really irritated me about the event.
Number One: WTF MC
I am normally all for this MC. I think we can all agree that in general she tends to be one fierce lady while still keeping her humor. Every once in a while she pulls a stunt that makes us want to scream, “RUN!” (Like when she confronted the Man with Anger Issues by herself) but in general she keeps it cool.
So I have to admit I was really thrown by her shadiness in this event! The premise is that she wants to got on a sweet Spring Break vacation to Hawaii but Oh, SNAP she doesn’t have the funds. That’s when a travel agent lets her in on a deal, if she has a never airline miles stacked up her and a friend (this is a couples only deal) can get a really affordably trip to Hawaii.
I originally thought that she would choose a guy who had extra miles and go from there. That’s not what happens. Instead she decides to rack up mileage points by inviting guys to different places in Japan. First off I can not believe that with the plane tickets and hotel fares she could be spending less money than just flying and getting a hotel in Hawaii but whatever. Apparently this is supposed to be a sound plan.
On top of (what seems to me) a ridiculous get mileage scam she is completely double booking her dates. At one point she invites three guys to the same hotel at the same time without their knowledge and just tries to carry on with all of them!
I’m sorry, but that is totally shady! That’s not the MC I know at all.
Not only is that shady but you know damn well if you went on a trip with someone and found out they stashed three other people around the hotel room to spend time with when they were supposed to be spending time with you, you would be mad. So I’m not letting this slide with the MC.
Number Two: These Men
I could not get over seeing some of these men that I knew were scumbags just hanging around her. It was to weird and I couldn’t get into it. I’m sorry but once you know that one of these guys will literally punch you in the face if they get upset and another one wants to make you into a human doll you can’t just forget that!
I wish that maybe for the event you could chose someone’s route or something so that you didn’t have to see these other douchbags. I mean some of these men (while liars) are totally forgivable… Some of them belong in jail. I’m just saying I don’t need to be cozying up to the jailbirds.
Number Three: Meh
I don’t know if it was the combination of the above to things but I found this event to be super boring. I didn’t even finish it all the way through. Once she started stacking her dates on top of each other and I realized I was about to spend two days with a man who will eventually kidnap the MC I was out. Plus having to use my energy to get cool points was just annoying. I need that for the main route!
The event just didn’t have the same flare as the main game. I’m hoping I don’t have this reaction to every event game, but who knows. My experience with this event though has made me more cautious about trying out future events.
If this is kind of the general set up for the event games as far as the men go then I’ll probably pass. I mean I have know interest in getting to know “The Man Who Cheats” any further unless the route includes him getting run over by a bus.
Know what I mean?
Let me know your thoughts below! Happy Otome Monday!
I am feeling better everyone! Thank you for all of your well wishes ❤
