3 Best Otome Games 2017

Uta no Prince Sama

"Otome games are played by weebs."
"Otome games are played by Otaku nerds."
"Girls that play otome games must be very lonely~"

Okay fine, these quotes listed above were made by me, a VERY long time ago; but after discovering NTT Solmare "Ninja Love," around the age of thirteen, things changed.

Although a little wierd at first for some, Otome Games are very similar to reading a Shoujo manga--with you reading from the protagonist's point of view!

In today's post I'm going to share my Favorite Otome Games for 2017!
