    Re: Best English Otome Games?

    The best English translated otome game would be Tokimeki Memorial: Girl's Side 1st Love Plus.

    Midorikawa Hikaru is my favorite male seiyuu for a reason. His voice can really project a character's personality and emotions well.

    His voice as Kei-kun is so humble at times, but slightly awkward or quirky while using subtle, light tones to enhance the atmosphere. He may be smart and athletic, but when he is with the main heroine... you kind of forget about all that and enjoy Kei-kun's small innocent smiles towards the things he loves.

    The game overall is a worthwhile experience that can be played many times over. The other two sequels to the series are good in their own way. However, the first one will always be the one I will remember.

    Besides the fantastic voice acting (Hoshi Sōichirō ♥), the storyline for each person that the main heroine pursues is well-thought out and endearing.

    A simulation game shouldn't make you feel like it's a burden to raise a person's affection. It should be fun, engaging, and make the end result a satisfying feeling. This is what the game did and I appreciate it.

    The artwork and music work well hand-in-hand.

    The music isn't annoying. It's light and simple. When the crucial or somber times arrive in a certain person's route, the music changes accordingly.

    As for the artwork, if you consider the year it was created, I believe it was quite stunning and refreshing even for the girls the heroine's befriends.

    Each cut-scene was wonderfully well-placed and we got to see how each character was connected to one another.

    Unlocking secret characters, completing the album, the various endings, outfits, and memorable CGs made this game even more appealing and enjoyable.

    I recommend this game who are new to otome games or who desire a slightly change of pace from all the sparkles in current otome games. Sometimes, the PSP otome games... despite the lovely artwork and music... lack in building the male character's personality/story line. Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 1st Love Plus is not like that.

    Also, it feels more realistic. What I mean is... you're changing outfits when going on dates and trying to make your heroine smart, artistic, a socialite, etc. to pursue your guy to make him like you. Answering those important date questions correctly to put a smile on their face is rewarding and displays how much hard work you are willing to get your guy.

    I hope that you will love this game as I much as I did if you decide to play it. Perhaps, it is the first one I played so I have some nostalgia. Still, do not let that deter you. Try it out. You will not regret it.

    No problem. ^^

    English translated otome games are quite difficult to find.

    I believe you know this... if not, I apologize for my presumption. If you search in VNDB with the correct tags and filters, I'm sure you'll find something.

    Re: Best English Otome Games?

    According to me , probably Nameless , it is a real VN with no stats raise at all. The art is good .
    I did not play all the routes , but the characters I pursued were well developed .
    The music is nice and I love the voice acting.
    It's not a japanese game though , it's a korean company so you may have a problem with it .
    And you have to pay for it , you cannot find it on anime sharing . But I think it's worth spending money , and the price is not that high for a VN .

    I also recommend Dandelion (from the same company) , Hakuoki (on psp) , sweet fuse (psp) . There are english patch for starry sky in spring and second revolution .

    My favorite English otome is definitely Hakuouki. Nothing can match it for amazing writing and characters in my personal opinion. There really isn't a single character I dislike.

    Re: Best English Otome Games?

    Yeah, definitly Hakuouki. But I would also recommend checking out the Cheritz games: Dandelion and Nameless. It's a Korean company, but their games are also released in english

    Re: Best English Otome Games?

    I actually really liked Sweet Fuse; it's a fun game that's rather silly. I played Hakuouki too but the story was just a little too bland and I didn't really like Chizuru as a heroine D:

    The Second Reproduction is pretty awesome and has an English patch! I'd also agree with Nameless as a really good English otome game. I didn't like how they handled the endings but actually playing through the routes was fun. Also the art is gorgeous!

    I never played this game but I heard a lot of good things about it. Some otome gamer told me the plot was really good.
