I say "targets" because all the men you end up in relationships with are billed as "straight" and Haru is an overly-energetic, horny puppy who admits he partakes in "sexual harassment" as a work pastime.

This can be off-putting to some friends, so I usually warn them ahead -- you can always first check out the game’s demo to see if it’s right for you.

You play as Chizuru, who disguises herself as a man to travel to the capital of Kyoto in search of her missing father.

She accidentally gets tangled up with the local police, the Shinsengumi, and the story evolves from there. It's a samurai history lesson with a Twilight twist.

Tools like multiple save slots, quick-save features, and the ability to skip text and rewind help players efficiently pursue every potential partner character and reveal every story path.

It’s like backwards-engineering a narrative database -- and you may be surprised to find how much the story changes when you focus on a different partner each time. Hakuoki is a period piece, taking place in the Bakumatsu period of Japan at the time of civil unrest between the Emperor and the Shogun.

Welcome to Otome, visual dating games made with women in mind.

They enjoy a healthy fandom, but many acclaimed titles remain in their native Japanese—frustrating, because romance and relationship games are more popular than ever.

NTY also features a cast of targets with a much wider range of body types than found in typical BL games, with some of the men well past middle age and even body-hair toggle options for different preferences.

Generally you meet several characters, and will have to choose one to court.

In Japan, dating sim characters are referred to as “capturable” -- whether that means you capture their hearts or their bodies depends on the game.

There's even a talking skeleton adorned with roses who will chat with you on occasion and give you romantic advice.

Compared to similar games on the app stores, this one has extremely good localization and copy-editing.

Lots of players get turned onto these aspects from story and character-driven Bio Ware games like Dragon Age, and if you’re a fan of those, I have a few recommendations to help welcome you into the otome genre.
