Scarlet Fate has it all!
From drama, humor, romance and action, what more can you ask for? At first, I was hesitant when I the cost of a route. However, after I did the math in my head, it’s actually quite reasonable and cheap if you really think about it! Immediately I was drawn to Kuso’s route, but after reading the prologue and first chapter (they’re free), I found myself more interested in Gentoka. I decided to get both routes. Like other similar games these can get a bit drawn out, but I quickly became immersed in the story that it wasn’t a big deal. At this moment, Kuso’s storyline has been the most captivating. However, Gentoka’s is wonderful as well, haven’t finished either yet. They’re both different and it breaks my heart to have the MC may only choose one. Why can’t there be different MC’s to share the love with these amazing men? lol I might also get Furutsugu, there’s just something about him that grabs my attention. Oh and I LOVE the interactions of the group towards Akifusa, priceless.
I’ve played Kuso’s route so far and it has become one of my top otome games. The game is fairly long, plot heavy but the romance build up is phenomenal. No sound was a turn off to me at first but soon I was blown away by the story I sort of forgot the fact that there’s no sound. I will buy the rest of the routes later after I play Kuso’s route in Scarlet Fate 2.
That being said, NTT Solmare, I saw the news in the app advising Sengoku Darling but it’s not on App Store? Please please put it on App Store again. Also can you update Ninja Love and My Sweet Prince to be compatible with iOS 11? I really want to play them but I can’t because they’re not updated.
GIVE THIS A CHANCE EVEN THOUGH IT HAS NO BACKGROUND MUSIC
Don’t let the fact that it has no background music run you off!!!
Also the price is WELL worth it!!! I’ll sometimes pay 4 dollars for a story I blow through in 2 hours but one character on this takes me almost 2-3 days because the chapters are so long. Some characters to buy are cheaper than others but seriously are well worth it (Bought all of them) I’ve been working on this app for almost a week and have only managed to read through Gentoka and am almost through the end of Kuso, of course I’m reading other things to but this is my main game I’m playing)
When I first tried reading the prologue a few months ago and realized it didn’t have background music for some odd reason I lost interest. Why? I don’t know! I picked this up again and the prologue sucked me in. It was the best prologue I ever experienced!!! Each story you read makes you wonder what another characters story is like and so far they are all EXTREMELY different. People may complain about the romance and that’s fine and I am seriously one for the sadistic kind of romance. (I’m THAT person) But this is a budding romance that grows over time and let’s you get to know all characters, it doesn’t rush and you get to spend time getting to know the characters in the story.
My top is Kuso, end of story. His route just got to me.
Gentoka was second and you guys can figure out why his route is second. I am not spoiling anything. I LOVE him though and always will. He’s even with Kuso in my heart I just have to put him second because of what happens in his route.
Kodonomae’s route was completely unexpected and really refreshing. I highly recommend if you want something different.
Furutsugu’s is interesting and I loved it very much!!! He’s another favorite!!!
Akifusas seemed darker. In all honesty, me personally... I didn’t really care for it at all but it was all personal preference. I felt like the whole time reading it there was a heavy cloud hanging over the characters. The conclusion was very satisfying though so it is worth the read.
Seriously My Favorite Otome

The heroine in this story has a strong and passionate personality that you can relate to. The story itself is truly deep and each of the routes you can choose from are drastically different. I was hesitant that the price was too high, but the artwork and CG's alone made it worth it! The storyline for each route is fairly long so I really got my money's worth. If you want even more romance with your chosen character, scarlet fate 2 allows you to pick up where the story left off in the first game. It's nice to be able to actually read what happens after the happily ever after.
Liked the game! Bought the stories
The heroine is a strong-willed character that comes alive gradually. Set in a historical fiction Japanese backdrop during the time of gods and human wars, the game draws heavily from Shinto beliefs and the Japanese story of creation. It comes with an entertaining set of love stories woven in it.
Unfortunately though, this game’s background sounds isn’t working for the current version of IOS. Would have given it a 5-Star if it did.
Overall, it’s an easy read.
Friend bonus ID:
so very, very good
Love it, but wish there was BGM and voice acting.
I know licensing is probably very troublesome, but I'm really hoping NTT Solmare will consider adding BGM and voice acting, even as an in-game purchase! I'm willing to pay for it!
I love everything else about the game, and the quality is as expected of an otome game produced by Idea Factory.
If you like Hakuoki and misery...
You will probably like this if you liked Hakuoki; same artist, same company. Also if you watched the Hiiro no Kakera (?) anime series, because this is a prequel (despite technically being the fourth game).
Hakuoki was a pretty sad game, IMHO. The amount of happiness and lightheartedness in Hakuoki was small but it existed. There is not happiness to be found here. -.-"
If you like long, heavy, depressing stories, this is for you. I mean LONG. I feel like the romance was randomly thrown in as a second thought, not that it wasn't cute or well developed in some routes. But the story was mostly about "oh noes I am a sinner, I gotta die bc FATE, man..." Seriously there is sooooo much talk of SIN.
The story was fairly well written, though I thought that the plot went around in circles at times. Every time progress occurred, there would be a disaster and back to step one. It got boring with explanations and the skip option wasn't fast.
All in all, the game itself was decent if you are into that sort of thing. If you liked Hakuoki, this has a similar feel except it's set in the Heian period, not the Edo period. And there is little to no happiness or lightheartedness.
If you prefer Voltage Inc. games, this probably isn't the story for you. I've only played the Pirates game from NTT, and I can say that it was 10X more fun and cute romance.
Don't get this game for the romance. You'll be waiting a while for it. And when it does come, it's tainted by SIN and death and general misery.
More paid versions of the free versions

I love reading the otomeios from NTT Solomare but I was hoping they can create a "PAID VERSION" of "Destiny Ninja 1&2, Ninja Assassin, NIFLHEIM, Wizardess Hearts, Blood In Roses, Oz, Ninja Shadow and Guard Me Sherlock!" Because I don't want to wait getting tickets to read the character's stories, having to pay for an outfit to get the premium picture, and having to pay with real money to get things that don't work(I'm fine with buying the character's story) so maybe if their more "PAID VERSIONS" Of these otomeios.
It's so lovely, I love all the characters >\\\< But omg, thus game made me cry, because I'm so lame, I cry every time ; _ ; ... But yea. It's so beautiful with the art reminds me of Demons bound , obviously I read demons bound first, I kno I lame ~ _ ~ . But the stories got my feels every single time. Also, we're is the music??? I wonder ? ^ ?
