Thanks to an age of constant war, the Iga and Kouga had independently achieved an expansion of their respective forces.

Both shinobi forces, owing to that long history of warring, shared an antagonistic relationship of mutual hatred towards one another. However, during the ninth year of the Tenshou era, the Iga forces fell into ruin due to the Tenshou Iga War started by Oda Nobunaga. The few Iga members that had survived were taken in by the Kouga forces.

Seventeen years later, the Sengoku period had ended and lasting peace came to the world.

Dreaming of performing shinobi duties, Ueno Enju (the protagonist), daughter of the Kouga forces’ leader, Ueno Kandou, had been training everyday.

After finally being selected to go on her first mission, a major incident occurs. It not only derails Enju’s fate, but the fate of the village as well…

    >No Sexual Content

    • Ayumi says:

      ..Haha.. I shared the same reaction as you did.. While I agree that there is no specific need for sexual content aside from ”Fap Material” I do also see it as a goal line of some sort. Like sexual activities in romance have always built an intimate bubble to put it that way. It helps people get closer in a relationship (If the love is actually real, that is – Otherwise it’s obviously just pleasure.) And its been known to help strengthen teamwork etc.. I sort of wish more otome games had at the very least a tiny bit of sexual content just to give the idea that, ”Okay, these two are comfortable and close enough to cross a possible uncomfortable barrier (In which some might be uncomfortable with themselves, etc etc.. Many reasons.) .. I don’t know, I can’t be the only one who sees it as some sort of sign of how close two people are..

      • Rocky says:

        I totally agree with you. The lack of sexual content in otome games is extremely disappointing. As a female who likes eroge, I really wish they would dish out some otomes with sexual content. Not that I won’t play a game without sexual themes, but it gets tiresome when there are no otome games with actual visual sexual content. Pub Encounters tried, but the sex was not well written and the visuals weren’t so great. I’d love an eroge otome someday.

        • infinipede says:

          agreed. i don’t id as female but I really like the stories and characters in otome games and i also love hentai and shit… that and otome game boys are more likely to interest me than the protags of a typical eroge. i know there’s a handful of 18+ otome out there and some that have sadomasochistic or mild sexual content in text form… but neither seem to get translated. ;;

          Hopefully now that mangagamer’s translating otoge we can get some more. In the meantime, I’ll trudge through learning Japanese.

            I’m sure we will see more Otome Games with Hentai Scenes in the Future! Don’t forget to buy Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome from MangaGamer when it’s out if you can everyone! We need to show Eroge Publishers that Otome Fans want Otome Games with Hentai Scenes too! Also this reminds me did you see Theory of Fear? It’s an Otome Game with Hentai Scenes that was released recently…! Also there is a Topic asking about why there is not many Otome Games in English with Hentai Scenes in the LemmaSoft Forums recently… I think it could be a nice idea to show our support in there too…!

    Interesting… Even if I’m a boy, I quite like otome games. Visual novels aren’t all about sexual content ya know. Story is also an important aspect. After all, if all we care about visual novels are sexual content, then it would just be porn. Nonetheless, thank you Admin!!!

    • charlbeef says:

      except… this is eroge download site aka, japanese porn game download site, that’s the priority here.

      but lately, publishing companies like sekai project had to turn the original 18+ version to all ages version, so this site is forced to publish it anyway…

      site admin, is considering branching out from visual novels to english Hentai rpg games. so expect to see more of HRPG in the future

      • loli says:

        All age is fine when the VN was originally all age like this and not censored. But yes 18+ would make it better.

      • KuroCulo says:

        That would be nice because it’s seriously getting out of hand now that most Vn release don’t even have sex on an eroge site which is quite confusing…

    • Aca says:

      You’re not alone, haha. I do like otome VNs as well although I’m a guy, but hey, sometimes it’s just fine to enjoy some romantic stories, right? πŸ˜€

    • jun says:

      I’m a girl and I like hentai so there’s really nothing wrong with that ~.O

    We want Kuroinu please

  9. The_Great_Beyond says:

    Hmm looks interesting, (sees no sexual content) that’s fine if story is good
    (Goes to official website sees one romance is cousin, two are step-siblings) Ehhh hmmm old Japan alright (then looks up voice actors for main charaters and know the voices) Darn I like all those voice actors alright time to try the game

  10. sellos says:

    i miss the good old days when really good vns were translated. nowadays only otome, gay, and nukige stuff is getting released.

  11. Kira-chan says:

    Thank you sooo much! You are my life saviour!

  12. Seriously says:

  13. blank says:

    I normally don’t play otome games but that’s one of the most aesthetically-pleasing VNs I have ever seen.

  14. Hurray says:

  16. Anon says:

    I think I’ll buy this game if I end up really liking it.
    It’s 34-35 bucks without sale on Steam – I think.

    Thanks for the quick upload!
    I really appreciate the variety on this site, especially since I like otome games.

    I think I’ll buy this on steam if I really like it.

  18. BlessTheAdmin says:

    Why it’s only the otome games that keep the very good habit of letting the player chose the name of the heroes?

    Lots of eroge seems more like light novels these days :/.

  19. blue says:

    Thank you very much!!!
    I have waited for another otome game for long!
    I hope it’ll have more of otome game like this! <3

  20. Kitsu-nee says:

    I think that’s awesome, I’m female and I can enjoy both eroge and otomege as well :3

    Um… Can someone help me please? After I finished download the game, I clicked the game and it’s say “The application was unable start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.”
    What should I do with this??

    • KuroCulo says:

      Try reinstalling DirectX, Microsoft VisualC++ Redistribuables, you might also be missing a bunch of DLL files (MSVCR80 and MSVCR100)… Good luck.

      • akarixren says:

        Hi! i also downloaded the game and started to play it but theres a dialog box that says error and within that box is ‘Direct3D…….’ and after that the ‘nightshade has stopped working’ …. whats the problem here?

    • The_Great_Beyond says:

      Make sure also to run as admin, so right click and run as admin

  24. mmm123577 says:

    I’m a little sad about this otome. Really, I usually love D3 publisher stories, because there’s a little intimacity betweem Boys versus protagonist? Like the men of yoshiwara or men of Ohgia. I’m not such a fan of eroge but I missed it in this story, like, I feel there’s no really love, the real one in wich you feel desires and incomodity and you need this person so much you want to touch them and you feel embarassed about that. I would like a romance like Second reproduction or house in fata Morgana but you know what? I like the story and de characters, no as a romance, but a good story. I will finish playing this otome when I have some more time. It’s no a bad one, but…

    Thank you so much Admin!!!
