To anyone who is complaining about how this game (or any other games you might encounter) doesn't let you change the MC's gender: I don't know if I should say that you're overestimating or underestimating Japanese games With my experience playing both male and female oriented games, I come to this conclusion: "like it or not, a (Japanese) game is either male or female oriented, and usually it's for straight people". There are LGBT-friendly games too, but I'm talking about the majority of them. Even in games where you get to choose MC's gender, there might be some things that suggest which one is the target the developers aimed for, male or female?, e.g they release more bishoujo than ikemen, etc.
Don't believe me or want to argue? You can just play more games and see for yourself then, this is only what I deduced. So, no offense, but if a game doesn't suit your taste, you can find others to play then, because complaining isn't get you anywhere, as it didn't get me anywhere either.
(Side talk: I played one game in a male-oriented series that got an FeMC when it was remade, just to make it more interesting to players. Since then the FeMC have never been acknowledged as canon and the later games in the series never have any other female MC too. An example of how stubborn the developers could get regarding their chosen targeted audience.)
Can y'all just stop complaining over the protagonist and sexist thingy? This is an OTOME game for God's sake. It's obvious just by looking at it even before the game is released. Don't think of this as "yaoi" or whatever. We females are especially target audience of this game. Anyway, y'all should already know that this is an otome game since the description is written "An otome game with simple smth..... " and that the catboys refer to us as "kanojo" which means "her, she" in English. This isn't a BL. Hope you understand this. The game is just SUPERB. This has already become one of my fav otome games. I love the characters(catboys), graphics, sounds, voices and EVERYTHING. I love this game. Pls make more games like this in the future!
What is with these sudden influx of reviews complaining about it only having a female MC???? These are the facts:
1. THIS IS AN OTOME GAME. It is literally in the goddamn game description. You know what otome is? Wikipedia meaning: An otome game, is a story-based video game that is targeted towards women. Generally one of the goals, besides the main plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship primarily between the female player character and one of several traditionally male characters. Wtf are y'all complaining for?
2. Do you complain of gal games having only a male MC? Do you go to other otome games (eg. Piofore, TxA, CxM etc) and complain of it only having a female MC? No. So wtf are you doing?
3. If you say I'm transphobic etc, please. I get that y'all experience discrimination but stop always playing the victim. This from the start was advertised as an otome, not once did it say otherwise. You are the ones coming here and finding trouble with it for no reason. And when people correct you, you play the victim and act as if they hate trans people when you're the one starting shit. I'm sure there are many other wonderful games with a they/them mc, so why dont you try those instead?

Please play BL games and sth up with gender talk. Also, do the same 1 star rating cuz of gender in Mystic Messenger too lol (nice tip to bring down the impression of a game to newbies), there should be unbiased ratings.
My first catboy otome game, while its disappointingly short, I REALLY hope they make MORE or add more to this game and it characters. precious Fennel deserves all the treats and pets! 🥰
Очень мало контента, конкретно на руте. Возможно ее еще будут продолжать и сделают длинной, но пока что историю просто оборвали после совместной прогулки. Меня лизнули поэтому ставлю 5☆
its really good in my opinion. but, of course, everybody has to get offended with something somehow. as a nonbinary person, i find it ridiculous how people are complaining about the gender thing. i never once thought id find an otome game where people complain about the genders the game uses – its an otome game. i want to sound as polite as possible, but if youre offended by the game referring you to as a girl, you need to get out. its game and get a grip of reality – theyre not real. im sure you'll find an otome game that uses they/them somewhere like obey me, but this is not it.
It's a rlly good otome overall good Graphics and excellent voice acting, the history is kinda cliche but interesting, like in all otome games, i don't mind it being short bc the game play is almost inexistent so it would be bothersome to just watch at the screen without doing nothing for the abt 6 hours that takes u pass all the game, the characters r charming, the bgm goes very well and the experience rlly makes u fell more than flustered, u tent to get sad for the boys or laugh at them when they say something dumb lol
Now addressing the whole gender thing, this is an OTOME game, the etymology of the word is literally : a game for girls, it's a romance visual novel targeted for girls, stop thinking that just bc u don't fit in the femenine rol they r going to waste their TIME AND MONEY ond that, even if this game is a rlly well made job, u can notice that the software is not good planed and it's a really BASIC interface, we all knew that this game wasn't gonna get a lot of attention so, why would they waste the little money that they have making a change that less of the 5% of the people who played it is gonna notice? It's totally ridiculous.
very cute!! loved it from start to finish~!
a little sad you cant chose between options of dialogue/reactions as the mc, but it was still pretty fun!
just a nice, chill time w catboys, what more could you ask for :3c
i waited so long for this game to come out, it's was so worth it all! i love all the characters I can't pick. and the best part is that Nekoworks it is part of this visual novel making. I don't know what are you waiting for! you got to play this game! God i can't wait for what else sayori is working on
the game switches between translating 猫 as cats and catboys, although that doesn't bother me too much. i do think them (the characters) referring to [an action a cat might often do] would be more,,, fluid than [an action a catboy might often do] i guess? ? i really don't have the right word.
also, this is without any spoilers ; the translation in a certain part of laurier's route... yeah,,, that. i didn't even read that. i am so glad i understand japanese so i could just listen to ishikawa kaito's voice without having to read whatever the translation team did because they certainly had a field day with that lol
overall, it's a short and sweet(?) game. the fanservice is like... there? but also not really? and the mc doesn't speak / there are no dialogue choices. well, it is meant to be played like a drama cd so I'll let it slide.
anyway, i just think catboys are neat.
Laurier is already enough for me to faint these catboys made me flustered than in real life lmaoooo
So, I really enjoyed the game, it doesn't have "choices" system, instead you enjoy a story that's already been decided, its cute and the story is fully voiced !
But, (there is always a but) the story is sadly short i didnt expect it to finish that fast i was surprised..
Maybe because nekopara's other stories were paid games and this one is for free so it's shortened (?) but hopefully this story can be an introduction for another game for the same characters.
The characters are really good designed and their personality are cute !
it was so short but I had a fun time!! the mc doesn't have different options you can pick to react to the conversation, but this game is 100% free with full voice acting and pretty art, I cant complain
It's a really good game! I waited a long time for it and it was surely worth it! The boys are very cute and the story was very lighthearted. I hope Nekoworks make more games focused on the otome segment, since this game felt like a prologue. So, yeah, loved it!
The character dialogue is very good, but the plot is not sweet enough, in addition, just reading the plot is a bit boring and needs some interesting activities, the character creation is quite nice.🥲
บอกตามตรงว่าสนุกมาก ผู้ชายงานดีแบบไม่มีอะไรกั้น น่ารัก เสียงพากย์คือดีมาก พากย์ทั้งเกมใส่หูฟังเล่นคือฟินสุดๆ ถึงเกมนี้จะไม่มีให้เลือก choice แต่ก็มีให้เลือกว่าจะเล่นคนไหน แต่ละคนคือรุกเก่งมาก ซึ่งภาพ CG หนุ่มๆ หล่อจนใจละลายเลย แอบเสียใจที่เนื้อเรื่องมันดูสั้นไปหน่อย แต่บอกเลยเกมนี้ไม่ทำให้เราผิดหวัง
Clearly says "for girls", confused by those who claim that MC should be a boy, if they know what an Otome is. Anyway, 10/10
