Because I like cute visual novels, okay, where I romance people. It makes me giggly and giddy.

I just downloaded Midnight Cinderella recently for my phone (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.cybird.appli.android.oqs.en&hl=en). This is a Free to play one, which is why I got it cause I wanted one but wasn't sure if I wanted to pay for something.

So there are some draw backs like any FtP game, you have so much "energy" to be able to play it making you have to come back. That sucks. But thus is the price of it being free. You also can get items for your character, making them look super adorable. Some things you gain via the story but lots of things you have to buy. Which of course cost actual money. Which sucks too.

The chapters are awfully short too for them using up your "chapter tickets", you get 5 free ones a day. You have 9 suitors to choose from. You'll have to progress through their stories to get special images and depending on some of your questions you'll get different endings. This is also based on your "grace" which is another energy based thing you can do each day to up your grace level.

The art is gorgeous and so it makes the game easier to play. The menu system isn't that great but it's decent. The "mini" games are just random chance clicking. So that's meh. So those aspects aren't that great buuuuut.....


The story so far as been lovely and I am just romancing the Knight Captain because I have a soft spot for knights :3 I just got this CG!

So that's cute! It's going to take me a bit longer to get through anything but I'm all bubbly form how cute it's been so far :jess:

Has anyone else played this? Any recommendations for other games? I'll continue updating this because I like to share cuteness :jess:

Hatoful Boyfriend is the only otome game with a 4* review from The Guardian as far as I'm aware. Get your bird boy on

Edit: Of course Jinx already has an LP of that :lol:

Oh that's like this one! I love the princess ones :3 I'll look into that one! I wonder if I can buy it on the store or if I have to "acquire" it.

Oh hey, cool. The only otome game I've played myself is Hakuoki, so this is mostly an unknown part of the VN medium for me. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

Okay so far with the men of yoshiwara: kikuya, I feel the Main character is too innocent that it bothers me a little. It's very much the "i'm a virgin and boys *blush*

That being said i'm on chapter four for the character Iroha. He's the Manager of the place? I was kinda meh about it until he suddenly got white hair and is an ogre? This is not what an orge looks like but okay.

White hair and horns means orge apparently
