Okay so........... I actually have no idea what all I want to do with this thread. "Japanese otome games" (referred to from now on simply as "otoge") might be a bit too broad of a topic, so if things get too hectic, we might want to split certain topics off. But for starters, here's what I want to cover... How to get into playing Japanese otoge if you've never really done it before Where to find and buy games Where/how to find otoge news Upcoming otoge (December/January) Some hidden gems that people tend to overlook If you have any input, feel free to chime in, otherwise I guess I'll just start rambling and explaining. Umm if there's a specific otome game (that was released in the last year or two or that is upcoming) that you've been curious about and would like to have more information on, speak up and I'll see if I can help you out. I'm pretty familiar with otome CDs, too, so uhhh feel free to ask about those, as well.
