[News] “NTT Solmare Releases a NEW Title from the ‘Shall we date?’ Series! …” (Video from Business Wire)

Solmare​ appears to have pulled out all the stops in its latest English-language release, Sengoku Darling. The paid app boasts of tons of new features (tap-to-move characters, movies for all endings, and read-per-chapter, among others) to rival those already offered by Voltage. And while the latter has offered these for a while now, SD does include some of the more popular characters in Voltage’s Sengoku titles (Sakura Amidst Chaos and its so-called free version, Samurai Love Ballad: PARTY) AND some of the non-playable ones, too! This would be welcome news for Voltage players who have been pining for these characters (especially since Voltage’s SLBP ‘Moon Chapter’ isn’t expected to be released in English till next year).

LLAAH is available via Cybird’s new Otome Romance Novels app, which initially came out with the paid version of their hit free-to-play title, Destined to Love, at the end of January.

First Impressions

Otome Romance Novels

I’m so glad Cybird came out with a paid app so I can opt to buy complete stories; not so happy that they cost more than Voltage’s. Also, it seems that the plan is to have ONE app to house their collection of paid VNs (as opposed to individual apps for each title). I’m worried that this could mean a byte-heavy and/or buggy app. It already takes a good while to update and load the ‘mother app’ with only two titles so far, and I’ve had to uninstall/reinstall the app just for my paid story to load as purchased.


The story is set in Laurelia, another kingdom in the MidCin (Midnight Cinderella) universe. The setting is more clearly defined than in MidCin as being the 1920s, and since I love this time period, I’m really looking forward to seeing how they depict this in the VN.

Personally, I like MidCin’s artwork more than LLAAH’s (which is closer to DtL’s), but maybe it’ll grow on me.
