[NSFW] Bishoujo Mangekyo Review

WARNING: It’s time for another NSFW post!

Company: ωstar
Game Site: 美少女万華鏡 -呪われし伝説の少女-
Release Date: December 29, 2011
Links: Getchu, walkthrough

This is an ongoing series by the newly-reopened ωstar, featuring a series of mini stories. Horror writer Natsuhiko visits a traditional hot springs inn in the mountains to see a room full of traditional Japanese dolls. There he meets a mysterious beautiful girl Renge. She offers him a kaleidoscope, asking him if he wants to take a glimpse into a world which he shouldn’t see. The first story is about the perverted girls’ school teacher Shigehiko who swore not to lay hands on any of his students in order to maintain his position. However, that all changed after he met a mysterious girl Kirie. He became entranced by her, even though she told him to stay away from her if he valued his life.

[Big thanks to Micchi, as usual]

Opening Theme

Really more of a PV of the entire series rather than this particular game. If you want the PV’s for this game, check them out at the Getchu link above. No songs anywhere though.

Scenario/Characters

Since this is a nukige, there isn’t much story to get in the way of the ero action as you would expect. And being a low-priced title, this is even more true with only a single heroine. What little amount of story it has though, I found it to be moving and touching, especially towards the ending. Extremely well done excuses for HAWT sex if you ask me.

Strangely enough, I found the story to be very believable despite the obvious supernatural setting and the fact that Kirie is a vampire. A man with a crazy obsession over a girl he believes to be fated with and eventually giving up absolutely everything for her, he is a surprisingly enduring character with only a single thought in his mind – to spend the rest of his life with the girl he loves. I like this protagonist for how humane he is; unlike certain other hetare protagonists with few flaws besides being a hetare with girls flocking to him randomly, Shigehiko is a far from perfect human being who has to work very hard to win the heart of his beloved. Maybe what he did was morally questionable, but I believe in following your heart and leaving no regrets which is exactly what he did. This is how the saga of Romeo and Juliet should have ended, if either of them is a vampire.

Kirie taking a bath with some vampire’s favorite red wine is the only non-HCG in this entire game other than the ending CG which is a huge spoiler that I wouldn’t be posting. Compared to the protagonist, I find Kirie to be a less interesting character. She is a tsundere-esque vampire who views human as a species much inferior to vampires and treats Shigehiko like a food source most of the game and only became deredere near the end. But when she does, she is super adorable and MOE. I also love her gothic dress, shown in the title screen. With that dress, silver hair, loli appearance, and strong jealously and dependency on the protagonist with a slight yandere tendency, she and Sora are the perfect embodiment of my favorite traits.

Ero

With 15 H scenes of various flavors, this game should satisfy your fapping needs for at least a whole day. Since Kirie is a vampire, and vampires like drinking blood, expect getting bitten in the neck during some of the scenes. To my surprise, Shigehiko does not seem to be bothered by this at all. On the contrary, he describes the experience as exhilarating. And for both of their benefits, Kirie discovered that semen has the same effect as blood of restoring her energy. In the end though, it just means he is getting sucked dry in more ways than one. Poor dude has to take supplements to keep up.

Besides the usual assortment of H scenes with vampire flavors, there is also some light BDSM scenes, a sukumizu scene, a thigh rubbing scene, a nun scene, a neko scene, and a scene in the car WHILE DRIVING which expectedly didn’t end well. I don’t know how he can play the piano and have sex at the same time, he must be pro at both. She also calls him sensei throughout the whole game except the very last line, so there’s that too. Other than the plethora of fetishes, the best part is – it has ANIMATIONS during some of the scenes! And they’re not choppy animations either; they’re beautifully animated, albeit there really isn’t much to animate besides the pumping action.

Graphics

As Zen said, the art is 90% of the reason why people would want to play this game, myself included. Other than that, it’s the usual see-it-for-yourself tradition. Don’t worry about the mysterious white clouds, full sized CG’s will be posted at the end.

System

Gets the job done, nothing fancy. But it doesn’t stop the voices when I’m skipping over scenes which caused me to hear incoherent tiny snippets of the dialog, or moaning, when I’m skipping. Can’t think of anything else to whine about.

Music

The tracks all fit the atmosphere perfectly, and are all a pleasure to listen to on their own. My only complaint in the music department is the lack of a OP and that I can’t find the full ED. The seiyuu’s voice might have been a little bit too squeaky, but that may just be me.

Overall

Short and sweet with a remarkably satisfying story (for a nukige) and a sympathizable cast, this is most importantly, HAWT. Definitely give this a try if you’re looking for a concentrated 8-hour burst of excellent erotica. Can’t wait for the second installment!

Story: 7/10
Ero: 8/10
Character: 7/10
Graphics: 9/10
Music: 8/10

Overall: 80/100 (not a total)

My schedule is messed up right now because I’ve just finished Riaimo and will be starting Dousei LoverAble right after I finish typing this. But, I still haven’t done a piece for Riaimo, which it definitely deserves for having not 1 but 2 imoutos. I’m going to have to pick up the pace on the blogging for my schedule to be in sync it seems.

And now for the obligatory image spam, with extra NSFW eye candy.

Seriously siscon eroge enthusiast and alliteration adorer.

  1. why?! why?! why do they have such a marvellous graphical quality in a pure simple nukigè?! ç__ç

    It seems I’ll have to play this just for the beautiful girls…:|

  2. A nukige with plot! Those really exist?!
    I was temepted by the artwork of this game but now that you’ve said the story is pretty good i’ll give this a try sometime. Kirie is super moe, especially in those cat ears~
    2 imoutos in one game – real imouto sounds like it should be amazing!

    • Yep, nukige with plot exists!
      The story, or should I say development, is pretty good considering the amount of plot they managed to put in such a short and low-priced title. I loved seeing their relationship develop from a vampire-food relationship to loving partners. Kirie actually half transformed into a cat for that scene.😀
      It is amazing, but the bittersweet ending I didn’t quite like. I wish they structured the routes differently, so everyone has their own happy ending.

  3. Ooh does it take just a little while to finish this? Does seems like it when I checked VNDB, might think about picking this up. For artworks though, I find Nanatsu no Fushigi no Owaru Toki to be the best in the December releases imo D; Was thinking of picking that up too but then again, there’s my time schedule to worry about..

    • It’s a pretty short game, probably ranging from 5 – 8 hours depending on your reading speed and how much skipping you do. For the artworks, I find this and Nanatoki to be equally appealing with different styles, and I consider both to be the best in the December releases.
      We never have enough time don’t we?😛

  4. Bishoujo Mangekyou – Dainiwa “Wasurenagusa to Eien no ShoujoI” … I’m already waiting for this, its second chapter/part, to come. Let’s hope soon.

  5. Don’t really know what a nukige is, but anyways, I just got into the erotic game business and I’m trying to play this game (>____>) and for some reason ITH gives threads, but only the retarded ones!
    For ex. One sentence is like fdjkslaf;dslafjaksdljflsdajf;aslkjfsdklafjadklsjf this long
    on ITH it’s half that size(only translating fragments of the sentence) BTW every other game works fine though ^_^
    DId it work for you?(if you use ith)

    • Nukige is basically a game where the main focus is erotic content, as opposed to eroge where that is less of a focus.
      Please use the h code /HA18@4920F2 to get it to work right. To use it, copy that code and paste it into the blank space to the right of the process name in ITH, hit enter, advance text, and you should have your new hook for the proper thread.
      I don’t use translators myself, but I’ve tested that out so I hope that helps.

  6. I have the game Reveresed Engineered and looking for translators.
    Anyone interested in translating the script files?
    This is a great nukige and quite a few people would love to be able to read it in English.

  7. Damn. This looks hot. The silver haired loli reminded me of a blonde twin tailed girl in Kanojo X Kanojo x Kanojo.

    I’m not interested in playing games like this but, I wish this it would have an hentai anime soon.

    • You can almost have your wish – this one actually has animation during the scenes. It’s just as good as the real thing, if not better, since the animation in hentai suck anyway and there’s no way for its graphics to match this.

  8. I’ve looked around for quite a bit and I’ve been unable to find anything so I’m wondering if there is there any way to find a translation / script for the illiterate?

    • Even more digging has concluded that nobody’s done anything for this game to translate it. Time to look up some translation guides or something. It’s better than nothing.
