This is a repost from my LJ which I’ve since deleted. Keep in mind they are quite dated (so I might sound like a retard) lmfao and chances of me actually continuing these posts is fairly low cuz I honestly cbf.
So like, I’m a fan of otome games/visual novels, especially those with hot bishounen. Also I’m a fan of anime, current obsession – Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn- (and Gintama really…but that’s besides the point).
When you combine both of these, Reborn + otome game you get… Heartbeat Bullet fangirlgasm.
It’s a doujin game produced by Dear My 1bit (they seem to have closed down, their site is gone too @w@…)
Information About the Game
It’s actually quite a simple concept, the gaming part. You finish a path with lovelove ending and you unlock a side story, which to more fan girl’s delight, is Varia side. Unfortunately I haven’t played any of that yet, no time ;w;…So this post is really all about the main story, which is the Vongola side.
How the Game works
The obtainable chars in Vongola side, areee all here~!
You only meet all the obtainable chars on the second day so that’s why it’s different to the prologue screen.
Each day follows the sequence of: waking up in your room -> day begins and you can do 6 things -> go back to room and sleep (end of the day). Sometime during any of these, if your rabu meter is high enough for one char, they’ll trigger an event.
The ‘things’ you can do involve you visiting your bishounen while they train and: a) chat to them about random things (you, them, the family, what they like/hate etc.) or b) train them with kotodama. Both give you more rabu on the rabu-meter (which I forgot to take a screenie of), except training gives you more rabu.
When you talk to them, they level up your bullets for training (the person you support does more damage). I never bothered to read what they say because I couldn’t be bothered 8D…
The training basically has you choosing certain phrases in the bullets and if the char likes it, it increases their dying will flames? When the bar is full they release a butt kicking combo lool. After each shot is fired they say something that could be interesting to read… The blue bar is HP XD…I was going for Hibari in this route, training against Tsuna OTL…
Now for the story!
Prologue (ie. common story to all the Vongola members’ routes)
(Set during the Ring Battle Arc)
You play as a girl who just recently moved to Namimori Middle High School, in Tsuna’s class. It begins with a intro with your name etc.etc. and you have the first option of how you want to live out your new life, something about going your pace or making new friends or…I forgot.
Anyways, you’re wandering around Namimori, then something happens. You run into this scary silver haired man…Guess who? Squallo! He’s all like, Imma cut you down cuz you’re in the way with his awesome sword skillz (I didn’t actually read his threats cuz I cbf OTL sorry) but in a nick of time, you bump into Tsuna.
Tsuna is all surprised and whatever going all “amagad it’s you!!” Soon Gokudera, Yamamoto and Reborn follow. You’re confused as hell but Reborn tells Tsuna to fight, because it’s his fight. Tsuna goes all chicken as usual and refuses, then Reborn turns to you and tels you that he’s hired you or something like that, so you have to fight as well. Of course you’re still confused going wtf happen?
You immediately refuse, saying the silver haired baddy is ‘too scary’. Reborn is like you useless piece of… hands you a gun. You take it and freak, ‘it can’t be real, it can’t be real, it must be a toy!’
Reborn: “No it’s real.”
He tells you to save Tsuna who is in the process of wetting his pants. There on you have a choice: “I don’t want to hurt anyone!” or “I just want this to be over!”. Reborn presses you to shoot and that it becomes your power.
And you do. You shoot Tsuna.
Tsuna is surprised.
“I’m full of energy?!”
And then goes to fight Squallo. Tsuna hits!
Squallo is not happy, and is like all Imma kill you bish, to you.😄 Gokudera and Yamamoto decide to be manly and step into the fight, then get their ass handed back to them. In the end Dino comes to save you all. Squallo is a weakling to S&M ;D and he runs away, with the fake Vongola rings.
For some reason (meaning, I didn’t bother reading) following that, Dino leads you all to a lodge in the middle of the forest that belongs to the Vongola Family.
Over there they’re all, you’ve seen too much, we’re going to have to rape you and dump the body. Actually it’s all just introductions from there on, info about why they’re fighting, what the rings are, who they all are. But one thing isn’t explained, why you’re there.
Honestly I forgot where this part comes in the storyline, so I’ll chuck it here 8D
Tsuna saying: Wha- What isDino-san waiting for?
Reborn tells you that you’re an Arietta, someone who has the power of 言霊 (Kotodama) which is basically, power of words. xD… You can make someone feel a certain way depending on your words. And you have to shoot the kotodamadan, the bullet with this power, to get your message across. My boyfriend asked me why can’t Reborn just do it himself hahaha. =w=
At the time of making these screens I was doing his path so yeah. You visit him with everyone, Tsuna is all grateful to Hibari.
Tsuna: “Thanks for coming and accepting the ring!”
Hibari: “What? I’m not interested in you, I came to fight with the baby.” In other words, he knows nothing 8D
You learn that Hibari is the school’s disclinarian, blahblah Dino nudges you to say something, so you do, you can either tell him; “let’s fight together!” or “let’s learn together!” Lol. Guess which one Hibari likes?
You: “let’s fight together!”
Hibari: “WHUT YOU WANNA FIGHT? OKAY!”
You: “!*#&@($ NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!”
Hibari: “No biting to death?” puppy eyes
Reborn: “If you’re with her, you’ll become stronger.” 8DDD
…What have you gotten yourself into eh?
So in the end everyone has to live in that lodge, including you. Reborn splits the rooms up; Ryohei and Tsuna, Gokudera and Yamamoto, Reborn and Dino, and Hibari alone, you alone.
Apparently Hibari had the largest room too😄 but he’s not willing to share.
When you get to your room at the end of the day, you go all “IT’S JUST LIKE A DREAM!”, trust me, your char uses that phrase A LOOOOOOOOOT. So brace yourself.
After this, each character’s route is different, so I’ll post that separately later.
The Game’s Downfalls
It. Has. No. Log.
Omfg. Everytime I try to take a screen shot or look a word up, the dialogue moves forward and annoys me to hell. And then I can’t see what has been said either. Which is partially the reason why I miss a few things while playing =w=…
Also, if you’re in for some hawt cgs, look elsewhere. I don’t have many screenies of the game because it gets boring to stare at dialogue all the time. The only cgs are at the epilogue, which is kinda sad. I wish there was more!😦
Hmm, the game is pretty long but that’s a plus…I dunno what else XD…
Well I’m thinking I’ll keep posting what happened in the routes for people to read (and for myself to read sometime too 8D). Honestly I really hated Mukuro’s route, cuz it was lame. Then I also have a bone to pick with Tsuna (does not like) so I haven’t done his path. Yamamoto’s route was so adorable XD…but I won’t write about that yet. I’ll post up Hibari’s route sooner or later…(after my exams). So anyways…enjoy.
