We at MangaGamer are proud to announce softhouse seal’s Touma Kojirou’s Detetive File ~Murder at the Opera House~!
Touma Kojirou was just a regular, ordinary detective, investigating suspicions of adultery and finding lost pets until one day, his little sister brings her friend in as a client. As her theater troupe prepares for their performance of “Phantom of the Opera”, a real phantom threatens to end their production!
Will you be able to uncover the identity of this masked assailant before its too late?! Or will you be too busy banging every member of the cast?! Find out, when the curtain rises!
Looks and sounds interesting, I file this under my “Please don’t suck, please don’t suck, PLEASE don’t suck” area of expectations.
Lower your expectations and it will probably be fine 😀
But yes, it seems like an interesting title at first glance so I might pick it up when released.
My current expectations are for it to be better than Super Secret Sexy Spy, which I hope is not a difficult thing for SHS
Revise your expectations. The EGS score for this game is 56. Super Sexy Spy’s score was 65.
If you’re looking for a “premium” Softhouse Seal game from MG’s currently announced or released titles, check out Boom, the big invention of the sexual century. That game scored 70 on EGS, and has a lot more votes than the usual fare, indicating a measure of popularity.
Don’t like you oral much? XD
But yes, hopefully it will be at least passable.
Okay, should’ve expected that 🙂
Still, if I’d changed the label to “Please don’t be crap” then we’d be covering a completely different fetish 😉
It’s a very new title from 2012, but VNDB has almost no information about it besides that. Is it a short nukige title like Boob Wars & Co. or a longer one.
It somehow looks more serious and storyish but that might be just my imagination.
I do not know how useful this is in estimating game length, but the description on DLsite.com says that this game has twice the CG content as their normal fare.
DLsite also has some screen shots and a download of the opening movie (which is labeled as a “Trial Version”). Here is the URL if anyone is interested: .
It’s a Softhouse-seal game on sale for $24.95, so it will probably have a pretty simple plot with some comedy elements. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was more of a parody of a murder mystery type story than an actual murder mystery.
I guess you’re right, it’s probably just a small SHS title like the other ones. I think I saw somewhere that SHS also has longer titles with more story and this one looked like it could be one of them. Too bad, would have been nice to see a bigger title from them for a change.
Yeah, Touma is a softhouse seal game. It’s length isn’t notably different from Boob Wars, etc. It still a nukige, but it does have more story/plot than the others.
In all honesty, every single time I thought the game was starting to turn into a story/plot game, there was a new sex scene. This happened about as many times as there are sex scenes.
I like the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ theme, it’s my favourite musical both in terms of music and setting. If it manages to reach at least a minimum story like SDT then I’ll probably give it a try.
Not really eager to get another sub-zero story like Boob Wars or SSSS though…
It’s probably going to be based on the original novel, since that is public domain, and not the musical which still has copyright on it.
Well, I’d be already happy with the setting, it doesn’t have to be the original. Though your suggestion of PersonA ~Opera Za no Kaijin~ has probably far more potential than this little nukige. Actually, I gave it my vote when Hanako suggested it in the ‘New partner request’ thread.
kind remind me of “Chain the lost footsteppe”
do hope is more story base the ode soft-seal title i try so fare
Very intriguing setting.
If nothing else, it will probably have some funny moments in it.
However, I would be quite surprised if the creators wove a lot of “Phantom of the Opera” elements into the story and even more if the murder mystery is any good.
Btw, I’ve found an actual “Phantom of the Opera” visual novel adaptation on VNDB with really nice art and good ratings: http://vndb.org/v7585
A very good nukige ^^
It sounds interesting enought. Too bad there isn’t more info and images. I’ll be waiting for this one.
