Was trawling through the Free! tag to commiserate over the ending of episode 5.
Saw this.
Literally screeched at my computer so loudly that my brother came out of his room to see if I’d gotten hurt.
And I am hurt. In my heart.

Voltage route(s) recommendation?

otome-datingsim:

Alright, I think I may have money to afford a decent route on any Voltage games, so does anyone have a recommendation?

I’ve already played most of PiL and MFW except for Kunihiko [no money for you Kuni! I still like you though] and Thomas. I also have played Noel, Mirai, Ryoichi, the guys from IYAT, and Takuto. 

I go for the tsundere/kuudere types. Or the ones that may be distant at first then warms up to you then goes all sweet and stuff. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Ha, ran out of room.

Continuing, Glenn is a sweetie who gets a little bit tsundere when embarassed, but it’s more teasing, similar to Yamato. And then there is Keith, who is a massive bag of tsun, but once you get to his dere side, he’s pretty cute. It just takes a lot of work.

Disclaimer, I’ve only played the GREE versions, and the BMP app is supposed to be a bit different.

And lastly, he’s not one of the types you mentioned, but I really recommend Kenshi from LLFTX, too. He starts as a friend with the MC, and it’s annoying being friendzoned, but that really lets you see the way their relationship develops and changes. Kenshi is probably in my top 3 for Voltage guys now, and I totally didn’t expect it at first!

I hope you have fun!

S-s-sadist?!?

They turned squishy adorable sweetiepie Kenshi into a sadist??

Oh man. I didn’t want to play the westernized My Lover’s a Thief before, but seeing your posts about how terrible it is really cements it. I’m not touching it with a 10 foot pole.

I have to give you props for slogging through it, though. You are far braver than I. (◠ヮ◠;)  Thank you for sharing your suffering for us!

Nice Guys in Plaid.

I’m sensing a trend here, Voltage. Do you keep your “brotherly types” color-coordinated or something?

You know I am seriously in the minority here because I do not see them as brotherly types. Nope. I am the youngest of 7. I have three older brothers. One is my twin brother. One brother is 16 yrs older than me so I don’t know him as well as the others. But my brothers do not act like Takao and Kenshi. In fact they are opposites. My older brother when I answer the phone says “what’s up shitbrick?” They are gross and talk about farts and other things. My twin likes to moon people.

So when I see these two called brotherly types I’m like omg no! I love my brothers but no goodness no.
My high school English teacher told me if I wanted to marry a guy like my twin to go to school in Montana and I was like hell no get me to a nunnery before that happens. One is enough when it comes to him in my family.

I actually agree with you, as I have brothers myself, and the thought of “romancing a brother” immediately makes me wretch.

However, “brotherly” tends to be the descriptor otome games use for “family oriented nice guy types who tend to friend-zone the player,” so it’s become the shorthand within the genre as far as I’ve seen. The term is even used in Kenshi’s poster on the purchase screen:

So I just do my best not to actually think about it. ┐(‘~`;)┌

Finished my first route in Love Letter from Thief X! Avoiding major spoilers, here’s my impressions:

I chose Kenshi, because he’s a hilarious mama’s boy. While you do get friend-zoned for the first few chapters, when he starts becoming aware of his feelings, there’s lots of adorable awkwardness. I like how the romance progressed, since it didn’t take the usual path in otome games!

Got the best end (Happy End) on my first try, and was very pleased. Playful, cute, and a fun and sassy MC. Good job, Voltage!

Oh hello there handsome stranger.
I really like your art. But I’m pretty sure you’re evil. Just a guess.

Hooray for another Voltage release! I’m so glad they’re listening to customers and putting out the non-westernized versions.

Bought Kenshi’s route, because FIREMAN. Also, he’s closest to my type of the three available. I’m looking forward to that childhood friend cop, though~
