Bloody Call – a Otome game in development by icing Candy, will be out some time in 2009 for the PC. We have a pair of twins with contrasting personalities as the main male characters! Under the Moon anyone XDD?
The protagonist Futaba lives in a town where human and Hanki coexist with each other. Hanki looks practically human, however they have cat-like eyes, special physical abilities and each of them is marked with a unique tattoo named Bugai. During battles, Bugai leaves their body and transform into a weapon in order to help its master.
One day, Futaba returned home from school as usual. She discovered that her house was in a complete mess; her mother was missing and out of the sudden she was attacked by a male stranger. Luckily she was rescued by a pair of twins named Reimei and Shirou. They explained to her that her father was the leader of the group Furaikooru, which is involved in the struggle for the control of land in the town. Before he passed away, he asked the twins to look after his daughter for him, thus they have come to protect Futaba. They would also like her to succeed as the new leader of Furaikooru!
With Futaba’s mother kidnapped by NEDE: the enemy of Furaikooru, would Futaba succeed her father’s role and bring her mother to safety?
The younger twin. Reimei considers the matters of the group Furaikooru more important than his own life (most probably brain-washed). He is very serious and calm. He does not speak unless it’s necessary; in battles he always keeps himself composed; he acts older than his age but he has no interest in woman at all. Basically he is the equivalent of Len from Under the Moon XDDD;;. I adore his character design but his personality sounds a little dull. Nevertheless I always fall for the dull guys because every display of their affections means something and it always makes me go awwww!
The older twin. Optimistic, jokey and my-pace type of guy. Shirou believes that women are weak creatures needing protection, hence he treats all women gently (gentle = flirty in Otome game language) which makes him popular. Again love his overall design~ Since he seems more wild than Reimei, I guess we would have more passionate CGs if we were to go for his ending *dies*?
A half human half Hanki who belonged to NEDE before because his parents were in NEDE, but he left the group to join Furaikooru. He tries his best to be a man even though he is weak in battle and has zero immunity against women. He is the cute and brotherly type that the protagonist needs to look after. Usually I don’t go for this type so I don’t have much interest in him at the moment.
The handsome physician in Futaba’s school. Very popular with the girls in the school. He does not understand the feeling of being in love so he regards women as things that you can take advantage of. However he is a selfless person and he does not take his own matters as seriously as others’. I am very attracted to Kyo because he wears glasses; he wears a lab coat and most importantly he is voiced by Ishida Akira!!! Ishida-san would make him soooo sexy that I would faint hearing his love confession ;;^^.
A university student that Futaba has met. Being a loyal member of NEDE, he deliberately tries to get closer to the protagonist to find out more about Furaikooru. He is very good with women and treats all women gently. He can bad-mouth while smiling with ease. I found it funny that in the official website it describes him as S! S and M are becoming more common in all-age materials or am I just corrupted? I don’t really like his design because he is too feminine for my taste. I don’t think I can handle a guy who wears a belt with a flower buckle and shoulder-exposed sleeves @_@;;.
Will Bloody Call be on your buy-list? It is definitely on mine~ I hope that it will be released before autumn.
