STORY


I was proposed to……within 5 seconds of meeting them?!

The only daughter of the distinguished Toujou family, Hibari. Four handsome, yet mysterious young men, selected by Hibari’s greatest enemy, her grandfather, appeared before her — as candidates for marriage.

But instinctively, Hibari knew. There was something behind this.
Why was this happening now? Who exactly were these men?

However, despite her reluctance to agree to this clearly fishy setup, her grandfather’s orders were absolute. Before she knew it, Hibari was forced to move into a separate mansion, and live under the same roof as her potential husbands.

With the role of the brides-groom as their goal, the four young men did everything they could to win Hibari’s heart. Thrown into this new lifestyle with temptations waiting wherever she turned, Hibari made up her mind.

As if I’ll fall for the likes of you……

THOUGHTS


me: i only play otome games with good plot!! i’m not like those other shallow otome game players!!!!!!!
also me: holy shit have u seen variable barricade

ok but fOR REAL i usually don’t care about romcom games but this is a different story…….wwwww usuba kagerou’s art is such a blessing they’re basically giving me no choice but to throw my money at them°(ಗдಗ。)°. it’s otomate so as per usual the cast is pretty strong (dibs on the pretty guy) but MORE IMPORTANTLY.  VOICED HEROINE?????? COUNT ME IN
honestly if there’s really not much plot there’s a high chance i’ll play half of this and forget about it but u know i’m gonna get the limited edition anyway LMAO\\\\٩( ‘ω’ )و ////

also this was one of the games otomate initially announced for both the vita and ps4 but then switched to only vita lol…..so much for the beginning of a “new era” of otome games on the ps4😂😂😂 oH ANOTHER THING please don’t drag me for saying this but i feel like modern-day setting is a bit of a waste of her art………….i mean i think all of usuba kagerou’s art is gorgeous and the CGs look super pretty but her art just peaks in games with fantasy/historical themes//////////

i’ll never play reine des fleurs but god do i want the art book,
