So Many Monster Girls
So after my last lament that there hadn’t been any good monster girl content in a long time, we’ve gotten a total bonanza over the last 6 or so weeks. Here’s my attempt to recap and provide some links to ones you might have missed.
1. Monster Girl Quest anime OVAs! http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE192468.html http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/announce/=/product_id/RJ193759.html
These could be better, but they’re all right. The lack of monster girl hentai anime is crazy given how popular they are in games and manga so it’s nice to at least get these. Watch Luka after he saves the world in MGQ continue doing what he does best. According to Torotoro, the anime plots are actually canon so there may be some Paradox tie-ins as well. Second episode comes out this Thursday, I believe.
I actually subtitled the first episode, but I do want to keep this blog piracy free. You can find the subtitled video in the 4chan monster girl games general in /vg/. Apparently some other group released a subtitled video of their own after me that spells Luka as Luca. No offense to them, but I’m guessing you don’t want to watch that one.
2. Succubus Prison http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE174492.html
The latest game from Tokinokogiri, who did the MGQ Delicious vore scenarios and the Succubus Kindergarten game. Succubus Prison is nothing short of amazing, and I really hope someone picks it up to translate because it’s a tough game to play even knowing Japanese. The art is great and uses vectors for animation (I think?) so it’s a step above static images. The only knock against it is the lack of voice acting.
3. Tokyo Tenma Devil Prison http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE185990.html
The original Tokyo Tenma came out 3.5 years ago and was pretty solid. It even had a mobile game based on it that I never checked out. Not sure if it still exists… Anyway, the original promised a sequel that I had given up on, but it actually just came out. I haven’t played it yet, but it promises a huge number of girls. Definitely worth a look.
4. Echidna Wars DX http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE187640.html
For the vore lovers among you, camel (guy who made the Cecil scenarios for MGQ) released an updated version of the classic Echidna Wars. The platforming action gameplay is solid and the pixel animations are wonderful. As a bonus, it’s 100% playable in English too.
5. Eroico Revision http://www.kyrieru.com/p/eroico.html
Speaking of updated versions of old classics, if you never played Eroico, you should check it out. If you bought it back when it was new, the updated version is free to download for you too.
6. FOBS updates http://zell999.blog.fc2.com/
Zell keeps updating FOBS with new content. More great pixel art.
7. Level Drain 3 http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/work/=/product_id/RJ174698.html
Level Drain 3 is actually from last summer, but I had overlooked it for my last update. The first Level Drain game is forgettable, the second is halfway decent albeit unremarkable, but the third really surpassed expectations. It’s succubus focused (hence the title) but throws in a few monsters like a lamia and a slime. Lots of great scenes for every MG-related fetish, plus a good number of pegging scenes and a vore monster illustrated by Setouchi. The gameplay itself is stock RPGMaker and really not worth playing, but thankfully you can enter the code 2546 at the window of the brothel in the first town to become level 100 and access the scene replay room.
The selling point of this game is that all scenes are voiced, and the actresses do a great job. The writing is also excellent, although it throws some crazy walls of text at you describing scenes that really should have had accompanying illustration. This doesn’t do you a lot of good if you don’t speak Japanese, unfortunately. Also, almost every scene is essentially consensual (you’re paying for sex at brothels with your levels) so the writing and scenes are geared more towards pleasing the protagonist rather than humiliating or torturing him a la MGQ, Violated Hero, etc.
If you read to the bottom and are wondering where the hell the next Paradox patch is… Valentine’s Day, maybe?
