[Otome] > v o b.............................
You play as a quirky, ill-dressed relationship-virgin student attending an elite fashion school.
I-in Japan.

Character Blurbs: (will add more as I get more progress done)
Name: Hikari Himezawa
-Designs Men's fashion
-Stays in the dorm
-Is easily inspired
-Obsessed with anagos (she makes them for almost every person she meets)

Image
The school principal. No one has ever seen his face, and he does not like to be called anything but "boss". He picks on Hikari a lot. He also tries to set her up with other guys.
-???
-A mother figure

Image
He's the new kid, and he sticks around Hikari a lot even after she's given him the tour. They're also in quite a few classes together.
-Bubbly
-Cheery
-Clingy
-Designs clothes for Women/Children

Image
Another student in the school. He's from the modeling department. He'll take Hikari's things and pretend to be "backpack-chan" for her.
-Huge ego
-Childish
-Loves ladiess
-Somewhat obnoxious
-Model

Image
He's must be some kind of ghost or something. You think you might have seen him, then he vanishes. He has some strange rumors surrounding him as well.
-Quiet
-Easily scares off company
-Often disappears then reappears
-Related to the "boss"
-Costume designer

SO.. I THOUGHT I SHOULD JOIN IN, EVEN IF IT'S LATE.. BECAUSE DEADLINES ARE THE ONLY WAY I CAN FINISH THINGS. AND-AND-THIS HAS BEEN FLOATING AROUND IN MY HEAD SINCE SEPTEMBER.
But everything's still in sketches and all messy sorryyy/sob


Feel free to tell me you're interested how you think!

This sounds and looks amazingly quirky! It should make for a very interesting experience. Please finish this VN! ;_; I would absolutely love to play it. (I love those anago things xD)

I'm here for the anago, I swear! Cute guys are just a bonus... Though you might want to send warning to Yuudai that I'll be watching him @_@

Standard 3 boy stereotypes, check. All bishies, check. A setting that isn't a generic high school, I'm in. This will probably be a very lighthearted otome, and I'm in need of something that isn't super dark (why do I gravitate towards those things when I write?) every once in a while. Still, you might have a few tricks up your sleeve to surprise us, so I'll stay on my toes. Looking forward to this one :3

It seems the eel patterns is linked to what the boys are wearing so I like that eel!Hideki is technically nekid! It totally fits his personality. (Or he has really faint lines that I can't see on this monitor so they don't count.)

This definitely seems like an interesting premise; I'm curious as to how things will turn out :D
The eels are definitely a good motif, they're really cute~ xD I'm liking the how the characters are looking too~

Best of luck for completion :D

Oh, goodness. This looks so adorable (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ* The fashion school setting is one I haven't seen before, so I really hope to see this finished!
Are they actually eels [like Hatoful Boyfriend] or are you just basing their design off of the anagos?

Ahaha xD I'm glad you like [Yuudai's design and] the setting! :,D I honestly think I put to much effort into that boy's design. QnQ His anago took the longest to make, honestly. YnY

Y everyone like the megane!?/shot Really though, it doesn't seem like anyone likes the other onesI'm starting to think I might need to take Yuudai's design down a notch.

Oh my God, I laughed so hard when I read this. The anago actually does have faint spots on it, since I wanted to keep the yellow without having to give him a bright yellow shirt.. Where the black shirt fits in though, I don'tevenknow.

<3 QUQ__ Thank you so much! And no, the MC actually makes anagos for each of the guys after she meets them (in the story). I had based the guys' designs on their anagos though!
It would have been like Hatoful boyfriend, but.. eels don't have arms, so I was thinking it might have gotten awkward if I made them design clothes. Hideki prolly wouldn't have had a problem, though.

Thank you! <33 I'll try my best to finish on time! Even if it's just the story. uvu/shot
On a totally different note: o gosh paradise kiss, really? lkajshdf i still need to read that! =_="

So, I've been able to line the sprites and work on the interface a little~ but I'm having a little trouble choosing between the two start menus D: (I'm also not sure of whether I should add in a love rival or not.. I'm opting against it because I want to keep it simple, but I'm afraid it might take away from the story if I do.. DDD:) C-can you tell me what you think? ; v ;

Ohh I like the first interface you did..But I think the title of the game should stand out more..Maybe a little bit bigger and with other color? And opting to add a rival..I think it would be an interesting add but its something you must choose since you are going to be the one who is going to write/draw/prog....Anyway good luck with it XD...I used to make a lot of anagos(with the intention to draw gijinkas in the future...)But I formated my pc and they are all lost lol

We all love meganes because they are meganes, that is why. IF YOU DO ANYTHING TO YUUDAI I SWEAR I WILL- I mean, nuu~ Yuudai is perfect the way he is~<3

If you're trying to emulate a mobile device, then the first menu screen would be better IMO. Cute, clean, and simple is all you need. A love rival doesn't always need to be present in otomes, but if you want to draw one up and write her, then by all means do so.

LOL I did the same thing xD Although, I made too many and ended up not having time to make any gijinkas so I just deleted the anagos YuY.
And thank you for the input! I think I'll be going with the first one after all, then. I tried playing with it a little to make the title stand out more, too, and this is what I came up with:

I don't know what other color to use for the text, so I figured maybe making it clear and adding a shadow would do the trick :,D Then I made the second one.

KAJHSD LOL OK.
Then maybe megane CG's for the other boys, then. >:D/shot
ORZ I don't think I will be putting in a love rival.. I feel like I'll clutter up the story if I do. D:
Yeah. I probably will end up doing so anyways./shot

Make the title a littler darker if you want it to stand out more since it blends in a bit too well with the rest of the menu. IDK, just what I think.

DO IT Nah, no need to ^^ I like all your boys just the way they are <3 But Yuudai gets first priority because he is the megane.
