Gensou Kissa Enchante // All Other Routes and Final Thoughts

Unsurprisingly (surprisingly? maybe depending on perspective) it didn’t take all that long to finish this game. And to summarise my feelings: AAAAAAAAAAAaaaHHHHHHHHH.

Gensou Kissa Enchante oh how I have feels

Story

Synopsis below copied from my first post:

The story is about Awaki Kotone, who inherits her grandfather, Awaki Souan‘s cafe after his sudden death. Having experienced her fair share of early career hardships, she wonders what to do with her life and his cafe and discovers a strange door in the cafe that when opened, allows customers from other worlds to visit Cafe Enchante. At first not believing such a fantastical thing was possible, with the guidance of Souan’s long time customers, Miser Rex (for some reason his name is read as Michelle Alex in common English, CV: Akabane Kenji) the Demon King of the demon world Asmodia, Canus Espada (CV: Umehara Yuichiro) headless knight of the fairy world Medio, Il Fado de Rie (CV: Ishikawa Kaito) fallen angel of the heavenly world Caelm and Ignis Carbunculus the strongest of the magical beast world Beastia, she slowly comes to accept that Cafe Enchante is a place for patrons of other worlds to rest. As it turns out, the Japanese government is well aware that such otherworldly beings frequent Cafe Enchante as well other other parts of the country and have an unofficial branch dedicated to the observation of them, with Rindou Kaoru (CV: Suwabe Junichi) being assigned to Cafe Enchante. As Kotone decides to continue running Cafe Enchante, the game follows her growth and interactions with being from this world and others.

Gensou Kissa Enchante // Canus Route and Initial Thoughts

It’s been a surprisingly long time since my last actual otome game thoughts post. At first I looked at the time stamp on my Sanzen Sekai Yuugi post and thought “hey December last year isn’t that long” then looked at today’s date and yes, yes it has been a long time. For those who don’t care for my normal twitter/mobage banter, welcome back to a whole new console, since my last game was on the PS Vita (Beast Darling doesn’t really count to me because it’s a mobile game port).

Moving on, I finally got my hands on Gensou Kissa Enchante (roughly, Magical Cafe Enchante in English), my most anticipated announcement at Otomate Party. Its themes were: “cafe”, “other worlds” and “non-humans”. For those more well-versed in popular tropes in Japan at the moment, it’s an isekai themed otome game.

Headless Knight, Dullahan, Canus EspadaAAAAAAAAAAAA

The whole game is a decent length from my first playthrough of Canus’ route, with a Prologue -> Common route (8 chaps, one focusing on each char) -> Char route (3 chaps) -> good/bad ending (1 chap) -> credits -> post credits scene. However I can forsee that after finishing one route, the rest of them are gonna be a breeze, perhaps with the exception of a “true” ending or whatnot.

Kokuchou no Psychedelica// Overall Thoughts

I originally picked up Kokuchou no Psychedelica (Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly) because I had heard it was short and I knew several people who would swear by it. For various reasons I’ll delve into later, I took about 3 weeks to actually finish it.

Given this game was announced for localisation by Aksys, I’ll just write my short thoughts on it and you can skip my spoilery discussion as usual.

koookooochoo of the psychodoodlydoo

Briefly, Kokuchou no Psychedelica starts with a girl who wakes up in a strange mansion with no memories of who she is or why she’s there. She find herself attacked by strange monsters but are saved by Monshiro (CV: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu) who promptly disappears and discovers others like herself with no memories. They are soon lead to believe that their only way out is by helping a mysterious”Master of the Mansion” complete a kaleidoscope which can grant the users’ wish. The girl takes on the name Beniyuri (CV: Nakahara Mai), and the others, Hikage (CV: Ishikawa Kaito), Karasuba (CV: Kakihara Tetsuya), Kagiha (CV: Toriumi Kousuke) and Yamato (CV: Hosoya Yoshimasa). Soon they learn that not everything is as it seems.
