Otome Review: 10 days with my Devil

Hello dear readers and fellow otome players. I was the lucky recipient of an iTunes gift card from my grandparents, and I figjred what better way to use it than by getting some real otome storylines! After much consideration, the first game I’ll be getting into is:20140209-164535.jpg

Seriously don’t bother me if it’s early enough that I just got up wtf

The story starts off pretty simply, you’re in hour house before work just watching some tv, fair enough. There’s a feature on someone that won an around the world trip sweepstakes, “oh how I wish I could win something like that” our heroine says to herself etc etc WHEN SUDDENLY THERE’S A KNOCK

TV reporter! Surprise surprise, looks like I am actually the lucky winner! Seems odd though considering I never actually entered the contest HMMMM

20140209-164610.jpg

Small stuff being 1. how did you get my address and contact information and 2. at least call me first or something, jeez

20140209-164618.jpg

My grand prize package includes some plane tickets and an ominous tarot card. I’m honestly not sure why the chick wouldn’t be suspicious of a scam or something at this point but YOLO I guess

So I head out to work ONLY TO BE ATTACKED BY A LARGE DOG WTF. And true to pretty much every asian drama stereotype, my heels break on my shoe. In the midst of this indignity, I am approached (read: snuck up on) by two more guys

20140209-164627.jpg

The apparent owner of the black beast responsible for the death of my beloved shoes

This man apparently had a psychic knowledge that his irresponsible dog ownership would cause the death of at least one pair of heels because he conveniently has a pair already with him! Rather than being incredibly creeped out, our heroine is just put into shock by the fact that the shoes are Prada.

20140209-164635.jpg

What a charmer! I’m sure he’ll only get worse from here though, if I know my otomes

And again, instead of being concerned that this blonde man happened to have not only a replacement pair of expensive shoes but a pair that fit me perfectly, our lovely leading lady says to him oh no I could not accept something something so expensive even if your dog both hurt me and broke my shoes.

20140209-164645.jpg

It’s not until now that I’m getting the potential pun on “The devil wears Prada”, but given that they say Prata sometimes maybe that’s not actually an intentional joke here. Either way, DEFINITELY not buying that the CEO of a major fashion label would be hanging around some average income housing neighborhoods, even to walk his dog and some asshole companion.

Lo and behold, as soon as I put these shoes on the two men (and dog?) are nowhere to be found (just like with the reporter might I add). They did leave me a little souveneir along with the shoes though so that’s nice.

20140209-164702.jpg

SOMEHOW I finally make it into work without further incident. I am greeted by this super bitch that is apparently my closest friend (don’t I know how to pick em)

20140209-164711.jpg

Bitch please do you even KNOW what kind of day I’m having?!

I am subsequently approached by the token office hottie…

20140209-164719.jpg

I might, what’s it to you captain presumptuous? Oh wait every female in otomes is sad and lonely and a little desperate no of course I don’t

20140209-164727.jpg

what an asshat, for real. He better be buying is all I can say

20140209-164735.jpg

Thanks bitchy friend, so glad I am FINALLY getting noticed too! Maybe I’ll finally get to start being seen as a real woman though now that I’ve actually been asked out for once

Abrupt scene change and we are suddenly at dinner! Coworker is actually laying down some sweet lines and I am more flustered by the cost of the restaurant than anything else, as usual. Sister calls and while I try to have an incredibly rude phone call DURING THE DATE there are suddenly arms wrapped around me, *le gasp*

20140209-164743.jpg

how intimate

20140209-164752.jpg

Good to know my sister counts as a threat to you, he is as insecure as he is rude (a winning combo)

In the middle of our passionate and unconsentual embrace, the mood is ruined by a chef that for some reason has decided to brinf us a uniquely decorated cake! Coworker is unamused as you might imagine. I’m also glad that even while on a date you still refer to him as coworkee and not by name. Does he even have a name? Nobody knows.

20140209-164811.jpg

So inspired by me that you had to make a cake! I need more men like this in my life

however, when you ask about the design of the cake…

20140209-164818.jpg

Feelings changed from flattery to slight offense that my sight inspires you to make a scythe cake wtf

20140209-164825.jpg

uhhhhhhhh

20140209-164833.jpg

UUHHHHHHHHH

At this point some fellow ladies in the restaurant express their jealousy and their own desire to have men fight over them too. Boy don’t you wish that men would argue over who got to harvest your heart amirite SO ROMANTIC. pls.

I am almost home from the best date ever when that stupid dog attacks me again. Good thing my shoes don’t break this time at least.

20140209-164840.jpg

NEAR DISASTER

20140209-164848.jpg

Excuse me

20140209-164856.jpg

all the guys have their own way of “explaining” it but this is the only one that is actually helpful. Why don’t you get me some more Prada stuff while you’re being helpful

At this point the heroine is still pretty unconvinced, and is more confused that suddenly there’s 5 random men at her house (plus one obnoxious dog)

20140209-164914.jpg

Keepin up the charm that we’ve come to expect from him, SURE let me just hurry and die so you can SLEEP, how absolutely inconsiderate of me

20140209-164921.jpg

Also I am now dumb because I wouldn’t believe these nutters were demons and that I was dead.

20140209-164929.jpg

OH GOOD I was against the plan originally but since it’s so eco friendly I think I will join you now I DO LOVE THE ENVIRONMENT

The demons can’t seem to actually comprehend that I don’t want to die, even after they took the time to explain how safe for the environment the whole process is.

20140209-164936.jpg

Believe me demon man, it’s not you, it’s me. But it’s also kind of your fault so fuck that

20140209-164943.jpg

WAY TO MISS THE POINT BITCH YOU ARE DYING LITERALLY AND YOU ARE CONCERNED BY A FAKE DATE. Also Prata lol

20140209-164950.jpg

10 days seems so arbitrary and kind of a cheap price! I’d at least want to enjoy the free trip they’re trying to buy my death with…

20140209-164957.jpg

Demons concerned by devilish angels apparently. Angles are stern lecturers from what they tell me

At this point I start to yell to try and get the attention of the “angels” that are nearby. This strategy somehow catches the demons completely off guard- WHO’S THE DUMB ONE NOW BITCHES

20140209-165004.jpg

GEE I WONDER MAYBE IT WAS YOU SAYING NOT TO YELL OR ELSE THE ANGELS YOU HATE WILL HEAR ME

20140209-165010.jpg

They also keep referring to my death as “being toast”.. awkward.

20140209-165028.jpg

The arrangement that we come to is that I get to live for 10 more days as long as I live under constant surveillance by a demon. HOW CONVENIENT FOR OUR BLOSSOMING LOVE.

SUCH ROMANCE

And so the story begins- which of these charming eligible bachelor demons should I give my soul to?! I picked the three most interesting profiles, comment to tell me which you think will have the best story!

20140209-165108.jpg

20140209-165118.jpg

No watching him sleep, or ELSE. I’d be really tempted for this guy, but 135 lbs?? pls

20140209-165128.jpg

So guess whose neck is getting tickled…

20140209-165135.jpg

The frontrunner in my eyes, GIMME MORE SHOES
