It felt like it’s been forever since I last wrote an eroge game review, has it?  It’s not like I have all of a sudden stopped playing eroge games… I have been thinking about writing my review on Daiteikoku, Aiyoku no Eustia, Rance Quest in recent months but for some reason, I just haven’t been in the mood to an eroge game review.  However, over the past week I have just came across this translated game from Manga GamerKara no Shoujo, originally released by Innocent Grey, apparently a joint effort between Manga Gamer and the well known fan translation group TL wikiI found out about Manga Gamer back in 2010 during my visit to Anime Expo 2010, at that time I had no idea how big Manga Gamer was going to get, but after browsing through their collection of released games like Shuffle!, Koihime MusouDa Capo 2 and playing the trial version of Kara no Shoujo and subsequently the full version, I was very impressed with the quality of the game play, enough that I want to share some of that experience here~

Kara no Shoujo is an adult visual novel originally released in 2008 and subsequently adapted into a two parts OVA in 2010; however, the OVA kinda left me hanging since the story was chopped up into pieces and didn’t explain things well enough, really did a disservice to the more well thought out detective nature of the game… The story began in March, 1956. Tokyo; a metropolis finally starting to recover ten long years after Japan’s defeat in the War. Private eye Tokisaka Reiji accepts a strange request from a girl named Kuchiki Toko to look for her true self.  Meanwhile, a series of bizarre murders is plaguing the area, one where young women are disappearing, only to turn up dead and maimed with their wombs torn out.  The murders are reminiscent of another string of serial murders that occurred six years ago prior to the game where Reiji lost his fiancée which drives him with a strong desire to solve this case….

The game start you off in Tokisaka Reiji’s detective office, pretty much like the way it was in the OVA

Here is Hazuki Kyoko, a character that didn’t make it to the OVA, she is the owner of Cafe Moon World, her husband died soon after they were married.  Which is a shame since I think she is pretty hot!

I have always had the hot for Kuchiki Toko since I saw the OVA, she is just my type of bishoujo ♥

Here is one of the screen shot of Toko in the Kara no Shoujo OVA 2

Hint of Yuri?

Details that were not present in the OVA, such as the Tokisaka were a family of historians…

Uozumi is Reiji’s long time friend from the days he was a police officer.

Being a detective game, there are actually some interactive elements here which is a welcome addition~

The evidence you have collected are actually written down in your notebook!

And there is also an inference part where you have to sort though relevant evidence in order to further advance your investigation~

There are also some funny moments too.

Here is a map of the city, now being an “adventure game”, there is a logical sequence the game will put you through each day, but you are given some free time to investigate on you own and that will determine which path of the game you will be on~

Here is a character relationship chart, which is getting pretty big by the time I finished my first play-through.

As well as the evidence list~

This very same scene was also in the OVA, this picture titled Kara no Shoujo – the title of the game, the girl inside the picture shares a remarkable resemblance to Kuchiki Toko.

I can’t really have a eroge game review without some eroge scenes right?  Here are some eye candies for registered members

Given that the game was released in 2008, and therefore considered as a relatively new game,  I feel that Innocent Grey did a very good job to bring us a game like Kara no Shoujo, which is very different from most visual novel you will come across.  Overall I feel that Kara no Shoujo was quite good and Managa Gamer did a good job to bring this new game over…. the only draw back was that it didn’t have voice over due to budget concern; but I have already found a patch to fix all that so it was all good in the end.  Those of you who are interested to check out Manga Gamer’s amazing offering, feel free to check out one of these banners~
