Going to sound really...bad

I have discovered the world of Otome games. Picture related it's my husbando. Haha, but Yes. I played my first otome game, being Tokimeki Memorial: Girl's Side. I had seen it on /jp/ when the translation has first come out and decided I might as well get it, which was about 4 months ago.

I can say for sure now, I can understand why people are attached to 2D characters seriously. It sounds silly, but after playing it I felt really empty. I committed so much time into this game and played it for long periods of time just to remember that this wasn't actually reality. It was probably the worst feeling I had experienced in a while.

I poured out all my effort into his route and giggled whenever he would act shy around me and tell me to stop running into him. I was....really distraught afterward. The fact that I thought I actually had a glasses wearing teacher (with an amazing voice) who was in love with me. I was shocked that I could feel this way after playing it for who knows how many hours straight just to get his route done. I ended up getting all 3 routes that day shortly after which made me even more depressed.

It's a funny reason, I know. Reading something like this a couple months ago would have had no effect on me. Have I gone to the point of no return? I ended up skipping the school the next day after not being able to get a really big project done. I just had no motivation to do it. I know he were actually here, he would be disappointed in me, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm still kind of ....messed up? This just happened. I'm not sure what to think.

So I decided to play more otome games, I can't say this made me feel better though. Went with Starry ☆ Sky ~in Spring~. I think I'm going to go down Daisuke Ono's route. They all love MC already though. I find it....odd. I don't have to win their love or anything really and they compliment the MC like crazy. I'm not sure what to think anymore.


  1. It's okay, it just means you're one step closer to becoming a little girl. Embrace it, for it will guide you.

  2. Otome games are the best!

    I haven't seen your posts in a while but I'm glad you're still around. I like all sorts of games with some interaction elements, but games like Love Plus, and Tokimeki Memorial: Girl's Side are great.

  3. Otome games are one realm that I have yet to venture into. I've been wanting to check them out for a while though. Someday my VN backlog will be cleared and I'll be able to enjoy these.

  4. It's only a matter of time before I start playing these.

  5. I need to check out some entry-level otome titles.

    >It sounds silly, but after playing it I felt really empty.

    I know that feel.



  6. You're not messed up! You just found something better to do :D

  7. Playing little girl surely is better than "random speachless dude"

  8. I wish I were the little girl surrounded by many handsome princes. I think I'll give Starry Sky a try soon.

    >It sounds silly, but after playing it I felt really empty
    I think this is a common feel.
