I'm not kidding: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…

WTF.

I can't read a single thing on that site and I cannot Google translate it because the text are FREAKING IMAGES. Heck if I know what's going on. Knowing what the Japanese usually does to these kind of thing, there's probably some kind of weird thingamajick going on along the story. Maybe the Phantom is a demon, or the managers are evil magicians and the Phantom is their escaped familiar/magical creature/slave, or there's a secret conspiracy to overthrow the king of France or whatever *flails*

Story looks like it's supposed to be book-based, because Daroga is around and the opera house is obviously Palais Garnier instead of some random theatre building.

You are Christine and you're in the Opera House and you do... stuff. Can't read Japanese text, have no idea what's going on. This is Christine: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…

Because this is a dating sim and it's TOTALLY not fun if your obtainable guys are only the Phantom and Raoul, here's the full list of our eligible bachelors. Or rather, I ASSUME they are. There might be other obtainable men on the side, but I wouldn't know. Someone please read the Japanese text and translate it.

- The Phantom: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
Duuuuuuuuh... Obviously. Our Phantom sports the stage show's half-mask.... and it's on the wrong side of his face :iconyesvictoryplz: He has purple eyes, LOL. It totally makes him look like Lelouch from Code Geass, and it's bothering me. I don't like Lelouch!!! I think for the first time in all my POTO shipping history, I'm hesitant to go all happy for E/C (that is, the Phantom and Christine as a couple). That's my Phantom OTP forever and nothing's gonna make me change my mind ever, but yeah. Not so excited about this particular one.

- Raoul: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
Another duh. And as pretty boy as he is, I actually don't mind him looking like this. I usually have something against light-haired anime guys and I only have light-haired OCs because I forced myself to make them for the sake of variety. Still, I guess they went for a fusion of book and stage because book-Raoul is supposed to have dark hair. And a moustache. That = not pretty.

- Philip: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
TYPO ALERT! LOL. Comte Philippe de Chagny, Raoul's older brother. I've seen Philippe/Christine pairings over the webs, so this is not a big OMGLOLWHUTWTFBBQ kind of thing, but still rather iffy to me. But this Philippe/Philip is hot and sparkly and I don't think the fangirls would care unless they're major canon-stickler hardcore "phans". Seriously, for this game I'd totally choose Philippe. Maybe as my second or thrid choice, but whatever.

-Richard: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
Yes, as in Firmin Richard the MANAGER. I don't even know how or why this is possible. Language issues and all that, y'know? I can't read his profile. I would LOVE to have at least some clue as to what's going on here!!!! :iconomgonozplz: Anyways. Because I have glasses fetish, so I totally want his path. Okay, a bit hesitant for this too, because the trailer/OP thing suggest that he's a pervert (I think I saw a scene where's he's groping Christine :x) He's at least on my top 3, just because of his glasses :D He probably even tops the Phantom, just because mask-on-wrong-place TOTALLY bugs me >.<

-Remy: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
I'm super confused why he's even on the list. Woulda make more sense to put in the conductor or the second manager. Or, heck it, the Daroga. This guy is the mangaer's secretary and I don't think he has anything important to do canon story-wise. No comment here, other than "OMG what are you even doing here???"


Other characters

- Daroga: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
WHY IS HE NOT ON THE DATABLE GUYS LIST??????????? HE'S HOT!!!!!!!! Come on, canon logic doesn't even work here anymore. Just... just... GAH! In another news, he kinda looks like Ryuga/Morgan from Pirates in Love (and whatever its Japanese version is called)

- Lucas: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
I have no idea who this person is. Since he's listed as "side character", I probably don't need to care.

- Meg: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
Weeeeelllpp no comment. She's... okay. Nothing that I could freak out about. Oh.. yeah. She's got blonde/light brown hair. Hmm. I was kinda under the impression that Meg and Christine has contrasting hair colour on purpose to show some kind of juxtaposition between the two. So here that they both have light hair. Kinda weird to me, but eh.

- Carlotta: www.mirai-soft.com/products/pe…
She reminds me of Vivaldi from Heart no Kuni no Alice. At least they didn't go out of the way to make her look super-bitchy-awful. She's pretty.


There's still 2 characters pending. Their profiles are still locked. Madame Giry is probably one of them. The other one is maybe Buquet?

The Daroga certainly needs love in all of the POTO incarnations. I mean, Leroux didn't even bother naming the poor guy.

Hope you don't mind me posting links (feel free to hide it if you do) but I'm working on translating this game so that you can figure out what the heck everyone's saying :D

Oh, and yeah, the Phantom's voice is se-ku-shiii! Of course, I think Mr. Richard's voice is, too xD

I'm not really one for dating sims (I prefer lots of story) but I can't say I have high hopes for this. While I'm a fan of Erik, I almost never support pairings of him with Christine, so I hope this doesn't turn out to be a sappy game. Furthermore, Erik looks much younger than I imagine him to be, which upsets me a little bit, and over all all the characters look a bit generic.

I can't seem to get the voices working though, which is a bit disappointing.

Eh, let's put this in perspective. "Otome game" is more visual novel than dating sim, but with the focus on romancing/wooing people. So, yeah, it IS a story. The game is a more complex version of "choose-your-ending" novels. Not some kind of stat-raising sim where you work to make money and increase your skills.

It's not really sappy, if the trailer is anything to go by. It's more creepy/rather pervy to me >.< Not that any of us will be able to understand a single thing unless you can read Japanese. Still, considering your pairing choice includes Philippe, the manager, and the manager's secretary, I think there's gonna be some weird plot going on in there somewhere.

This is anime. What do you expect? There's a massload of young, "hot" anime Erik out there LOL :D In fact, I used to do that kind of thing because I draw anime all the time ^^; Mask on the wrong side of the face is more bothersome to me, though.

All the same, otome game is a guilty pleasure. Just like watching sparkly fluffy anime and magic girls (like Sailor Moon and Winx and stuff like that) is. I'm usually more pissed at the game being advertised as more than it is, but I can enjoy otome games just for the heck of ogling the pretty boys like the fangirl that I am.

Oh, it's an otome game? I thought so, going by the pictures, but since you mentioned "dating sim" I thought I'd just trust that. I do quite like otome games, if the story's not too 'mary-sue' and unbalanced. It quite annoys me when certain characters have longer or more satisfying stories. It just seems kinda biased.

I do hope it's not sappy but you never know. I can't seem to find the trailer (unless it's the thing on the download page), so I guess I shouldn't make any early judgements. ^_^; I do think that Phillipe is the best looking of the lot, though. Maybe because he looks the oldest.

True, true, but not all anime has the same generic style. I definitely prefer ones that are slightly more realistic, or at least where guys look older. @_@ I've kinda given up on the mask thing, since I really only support the full face one and that's barely used anywhere.

I guess that's a good point, though I don't really like watching magical girl transformations. For me, Winx Club is an exception due to their outfits, which are more organic looking than most of the Japanese ones. I only watch for the clothing. XD I definitely agree about games being advertised as more than they are, though. It just sets itself up to fall over empty promises.

Yeah, the thing on download page is the trailer. You can also see some of the... er, pervy scenes in the "gallery" section of the site. It may be generic scenes to some other people, but a few of those looks like groping to me. I has stomach ache from looking :x

Hey, I like more realistic anime too, but sometimes I toss that ideals and enjoy the pretty sparkly bishounen boys :love:

Full mask = no good for otome. They have to showcase pretty faces in otome games! :XD: Erik's emo hair is probably what makes him look younger than he ought to. Him, Richard, and Philippe look like they're supposed to be around the same age. No one has those "age lines" on their faces. Philippe's half-combed-back hair helps the aged look. Still. I like dark haired guys. I still prefer Erik to Philippe, Lelouch-lookalike or not :P Erik probably only loses to Richard :XD: Glasses always wins me over.

Oh dear, I'm already wanting to draw pictures even though I know nothing about this game! Shame on me :iconotlplz: BUT BUT BUT BUT THE DAROGA IS HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :iconheadacheplz:

To each to their own, LOL. I think WINX's outfits are just as bad as the Japanese ones, if not worse, but everyone has their opinions.

I'm not really disturbed by perverted scenes, since I'm used to worse (not that that's really a good thing >.<). I took a look at the gallery and couldn't work out properly what was happening in some of them. For some reason, I'm getting the impression that Raoul is the 'bad' one, rather than the more innocent Erik. o.O

Bishies can be good if done right but I think I'll always prefer the slightly older, more masculine types. XD

Yeah, that's why I don't think we get a lot of the full mask, but then that's an aspect I really like about the original character. All adaptations of the book seemed to get rid of his somewhat skeletal appearance for one that is more, 'dateable', I guess. I haven't worked out whether I prefer black or blonde hair. I generally like black hair but most of the male characters I like tend more to be blonde. I'm not a big fan of dark skin though, but that's just down to personal preference.

Ah, I get where you're coming from. I think a lot, if not most, people think that way, and I wouldn't blame you. Maybe I just have weird standards. ^_^;

Well, I don't mean evil so much as perverted. *Looks at last gallery picture*
I do wonder how Erik will be portrayed though, considering his lack of a sad sprite.

Tru dat *squick*

His "normal" face would probably double as "sad". Or, they have more sprites but don't release those online.

Gah, I love the phantom of the opera. This better not turn my favorite story to some kind of cheesy-made-up story and turn phantom into a wimp.

I KNOW RIGHT??? I was super excited when that person at lemmasoft was making a Phantom otome game, and now that there's a professionally made one, I was even more excited.

The Phantom doesn't seem like a wimp, but the story plot looks rather weird, considering the freaking manager is one of the obtainable guys :ohnoes:

PS: Judging by the trailer and preview pics, it looks like it's probably NC-17 (mature). There's nudity and groping. Too bad Japanese only, because I can't read a single thing and playing the game would not help me understand anything.
