"Hatoful Boyfriend" is a story about a human girl attending to a prestige school called, St. Pigeonations. Everyone who attends this school (with the exception of the main character) are all of different species of birds with their own minds. Although the characters to chase after are birds, each create a unique tale of its own--including with some humor and puns along the way.

Let's all start off with the art: The rendered of birds sprites are not something to be amused of other than giving the simple presence of the character/ features, but the CG's & 'human' representation of each character are beautifully drawn out by the creator. Each CG serves a purpose in the game, making it enjoyable while setting the emotion needed in the game. Multiple playthroughs are required in order to unlock everything--including the Archive section, giving further details within the plot.

As for the story line, it comes out silly at first to create a game based on 'dating' pigeons--but think again. There is a deeper meaning behind the humor as there are some events that may pose questions for the player: Why Pigeons? Why a human? Everything will be answered from another route. As a matter of fact, this game will put you into a whole new roller coaster ride; prepping up your feelings from happiness into a heart broken state. The humor is fantastic and it somehow sets the right mood for the player, making the gameplay much more enjoyable.

Then, there's the music. I love how it naturally flows the story line and the characters' personalities. It is a way to depict their presence along the smooth transition from one main plot to another. It is truly perfect, leaving me no words how to describe it further.

In conclusion, "Hatoful Boyfriend" is one of the best otome games I played so far. If you enjoy humor, fictional science and having to go through a serious plot, I'd highly recommend for you to play this. It is definitely worth of your money and time!

Back when I first played the demo, all I could think was "haha, pigeon boyfriends!" And then things got serious. There was plot. There was drama. And I fell in love with birds through it all.

And the complete edition? It brings all of that and more. The demo version left a lot of loose ends, which the full does a perfect job of tying together. This game is full of humor, but does a brilliant job of sobering up, especially once you start up the Hurtful side of things (and that route is so very aptly named). The characters are all unique and have amazing personalities, and the PC is probably one of the best (what with her hunter-gatherer instincts and such) - you'll definitely grow attached to them. The plot is like a roller coaster ride at times, and replaying the dating aspect after completing the Hurtful route just adds another level of depth to to the game, shedding new light on the birds. There's a certain complexity to this game that I never saw coming, and it was a joy to experience, even through all the dramatic feelings I had for the characters.

Can I really express how good this game is? Probably not. It's certainly unique, and it's definitely got enough content in it to be more than worth the money spent on it. Yeah, you're going to romance some birds - but really, it's the best love there is.

I haven't played through the full version yet, but I can already tell you that it has a lot more scenarios than the trial version. And the extra character, Angel, shows up as well!
I never expected to feel this way about pigeons, but the creator of this game has introduced me to an entirely new world.
The dialogue is amusing, the OST is great and you'll find the stories surprisingly compelling.
It's only 5 USD, and you'd be supporting more original ideas like this one. I'm very happy it got translated, and hoping to see HolidayStar get released in the future!

Madoka and Homura both in glasses (megane). Heartwarming 4-panel comics & manga.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Aimaime's "Mega x Mega" contains a number of 4-coma manga about Homura and Madoka from the anime Mahou Sho*jo Madoka Mag*ca. In it, Madoka decides to wear glasses in order to match Homura.

To start; the art in "Mega x Mega" is adorable. Homura, Madoka and Mami all look very cute in it. The story is the best part of this doujin though in my opinion. Homura's love for Madoka is displayed in an amazingly cute way. Every page will definitely be heartwarming for any reader that enjoys cute Shoujo Ai stories.

Overall I highly recommend "Mega x Mega" for any fan of Madoka and Yuri stories in general (especially if you like the Madoka x Homura pairing).

Pickup!An Utterly Hilarious Cross-Over/Parody

An awesome, hilarious mashup of Idolm*ster and Resid*nt Evil!

  • Release: Jul/22/2011

Keywords the reviewer selected :

"Takane, Irori, Ami, Mami and Yukiho; Survival in Zombie Infested Raccoon City" is a cross-over parody of the IdolM*ster and Bioh*zard/Resid*nt Evil games wherein 5 idols from 765 pro tour in Raccoon city and experience the zombie outbreak. Also included are a number of unrelated IM@S 4-coma comics.

The comics really shines in the humor department as it's simply hilarious and very clever. First off the concept itself is really funny; it's quite simply the most mismatched cross-over I've ever heard of (Idols and Zombies, lol). Moving on there's a lot of very funny direct parodies of scenes from the Bioh*zard games. Next, the ways the idols handle the situation is hilarious as well. Overall... to put it simply, the whole comic is a laugh riot.

In conclusion this is a must buy for fans of Idolm*ster and Bioh*zard (preferably both). It's hilarious, especially if you've played the games before. At 60+ pages you're certainly getting your money's worth.

Well if you haven't got a clue what this series is about by now shame on you! The art style here features plump but very cute versions of female characters from Disg*ea series with very yummy looking boobs! The artist (who's name still escapes me) never runs out of ideas for paizuri positions and at the same time, keep the series it self from getting stale or repetitive. As a paizuri lover, this is a welcome addition to my collection as well it should be for those who big boobs makes you go GA GA!!!

Pickup!A different MilkyBox story.

He'd longed for her so long, and decides finally to confess...

  • Release: Apr/28/2011

Keywords the reviewer selected :

To me MilkyBox is a synonym for happy pregnant sex that ends with lovely births, so this work came as a surprise to me since it features only happy straight sex without the usual pregnant/birth scenes. At first it was a slight disappointment for me since I enjoy MilkyBox's depiction of pregnant/birth sex, but after reading through the story the disappointment vanished because the art and sex are as good as his previous works. If you are only interested in pregnant/birth sex then take note; however, if you like MilkyBox's art and passionate straight sex you won't be disappointed. Also there is an interesting scene here where the girl asks the boy to put on a condom, an uncommon appearance in hentai in my knowledge.

A great game with a great story and looks. The gameplay is also very interesting and some times very challenging. The characters are all very interesting and the way you get to control the H actions is also very interesting. The RPG elements were a great touch as well. I also enjoyed the extras that you unlock after beating the game for the first time. It makes you play it over and over to unlock the rest of the stuff. It just makes you keep coming back and it completely ruined my grades this week. Thank you ponidog =P

Okay, yes, the entire premise of this game is absolutely insane. But before you are even halfway done with your selected story arc, you will forget that the characters you're watching on the screen are pigeons.

There are hours and hours of replay value loaded into this game. Not only are there branches upon branches of story, but more options are unlocked at key decision points as you clear the game multiple times, opening the path for MORE endings!

Hatoful Boyfriend has hilarious and engaging dialogue. And somehow, simultaneously, a deeply engrossing, dark, and intense plot. The severity of the 'real' plot of the game is only made clearer as you play through the game multiple times and piece together parts you've learned from each branching storyline you complete.

In conclusion, the price for this level of entertainment is MORE than fair. This is a must-play for anyone with a sense of humor tilted toward the weird who also appreciate intense storytelling and memorable characters.

Carve it into your soul!

Pickup!A Good Old Scrolling Shooter at a Great Price

Exhilirating giant robo/mech sci-fi shooting game!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

"Layer Ray SF Shooting" is a vertically scrolling shooting game. As one would expect you basically just move up and shoot stuff while dodging bullets (as with any other game in the genre).

The game itself is more or less the same as you'd expect from any other entry in the genre. That being said though; it's still quite fun. Regardless of how many times this concept is used it will still be fun. Also given the fact this is a 105 yen game, it's pretty hard to pass this up.

Overall I'd say this game is pretty worth picking up if you like scrolling shooters. It's only 105 yen so it definitely can't hurt.
