Character artwork and a preview clip have been released for a lengthily titled eroge set to release in autumn of this year, Ima Sugu Onii-chan ni Imouto da tte Iitai! – showing a rather lovely selection of females.
This ero-game, best simply called “Imaimo”, takes place in the same setting as another title already renowned “Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate” – in turn meaning two things, and the first is quite apparent to any familiar with Senkyo to Chocolate. The characters of this game, as one can see, are highly similar to Senkyo to Chocolate in terms of artistic technique used to devise them. They sport the same pallet of pastel colors, gentle lines, abundance of shadow, unique seifukus, and very distinctive complexions.
And what else can one insinuate from these two erotic games taking place in the same setting? That hometown of theirs is apparently a venue quite immorally peculiar indeed – one harem is already unrealistic enough as is, yet two are to be found in this abnormally venereal place? That’s quite ridiculous – although silly as it may be, such is the case, and it’s not stopping this eroge. On a side-note however, this actually isn’t so much an “erotic game” as it is simply one suggestive as the studio behind it insists it is intended for “all-ages”.
Watching the PV, it’s composed of the same character profiles – now accompanied to some typical eroge-like seasonal music which seems to be the preferred choice of deflowering virgins, a sight which we’re not too sure if included considering the age rating, however, could always be implied or censored. Yet in any case, the PV also contains a frame from the game for each character – attempting to get unsuspecting otaku attached to some innocent second dimensional females well before it has even debuted.
There is however a detail which one should ensure not to overlook – of the several heroines, an unspecified one of them is a male crossdressed as a female for whatever disturbing reason. Diversity and diverging from the norm is splendid in most cases – although that facet is merely one which in this case will leave us steering clear of this visual novel and stick with something which features girls who are truly all female instead.
Atop of that, one can visibly see that there’s a heroine who dresses as a boy for some reason. A feminine male dressing as a male or a female fitted as a male?
While the cast of this title is too gender confused for the liking of most, this at least remains a fairly interesting eroge in concept – particularly as it is unusual for the heroine to be one as seen here, a short girl who appears to be a bit of a dolt with hair slightly reddish in hue. She’s certainly not the usual flawless bodied bishoujo or temptress little sister, perhaps she’s crossdresser?
