Galge Review – Imouto no Okage de Mote Sugite Yabai

moteyaba00“Thanks to my sister I became dangerously popular” is the newest HULLOTE title since their “With Ribbon” from 2011, which was not bad. Let me see what you offer this time…

Story

Asasaka Tokiya is a lazy, weak-minded fat guy with terrible grades, without any special talent, pathetic physical strength and no charisma who is easily manipulated by others. One day, he sees a pretty girl wearing the same uniform from his sister’s school and fall in love at first sight. Because of this school’s high level and Tokiya’s patheticness, he had no hope to get close to the girl, if not for his perfect imouto Meguri, who lectures him on, pretty much, how to become a better human being. She….fails!moteyaba12Well at least his grades became good enough so he could enter in her school and he also got slimmer, but everything else is pretty much the same. Noticing that Tokiya was still the same old loser, Meguri decides to perform a mystic ritual to make a life time worth of popularity with girls come at once, turning him “ultra-hot” with the females, but only for a short period of time. What? Did I forget to say she is a shrine maiden with magical powers? Because she is! Unfortunately, Tokiya is so hopeless that not even the gods can help him. That’s why his confession goes terribly wrong!moteyaba01Well, there is also the fact she is an air-head, but WHATEVER! He is such a Loser! Tokiya goes crying to his sister like she was freaking Doraemon but, this time, there was nothing she could do. Now he has to live the rest of that semester with the horrible curse of being incredible popular in his new school full of cute girls, and it is all his sister’s fault!

Characters

moteyaba22moteyaba14

So basically: Tokiya is the worst main character I’ve seen on the Galges released this year. He fails at everything he tries to do, don’t know how to do house chores, is very indecisive and seems to become interested into things on a whim. That’s what makes him fall in love with the odd-eyed girl, and that’s also the reason why he loses interest on her as fast once any other girl confesses to him. He is always being toyed by the girls and is unable to give a decent comeback to their taunts. Tokiya also relies too much on Meguri for everything, and every time he makes an important decision by himself, it’s never the right choice! He rarely can do something useful for the heroines, as they end up helping themselves during their routes. It makes sense this bastard needed real magical powers to make the cast fall for him. I feel sorry for those girls who have to put up with this waste of human life.

moteyaba15moteyaba13Asasaka Meguri is pretty much the opposite of Tokiya. She bests him at anything possible, and many would think she is his older sister, especially because it was her who raised him during their parents long absence, which makes her technically his mother. Even so, she never complains about anything. She helps Tokiya to confess not only because she wants to see him happy, but also because she wants them to be in the same school. And, of course, she was always in love with him, no matter how big of a loser her brother is. However, there are times even Meguri can’t stand Tokiya’s lack of a brain, and she finally snaps by saying: “Even though I’ve made you into a handsome guy, there was nothing I could do about how pathetic you are!”. And this line is said at the climax of her route! She should be in love with him by that point, right?!

moteyaba02moteyaba03Shiratori Kanae is the fake main heroine. Since this game follows the same flow as “Unmei Yohou o Oshirase Shimasu”, this means you have to dump every single girl in the game just to get to her route. Is she worth it? Personally, I find her to be too bland. Aside from her appearance, there was nothing special about her. This is, until you get to the climax of her route, when you find out she also has shrine maiden magical powers! So no! she’s not worth it!

moteyaba04moteyaba05Tooshima Maina is Kanae’s best friend, she is a tomboy and a bit dumb, and that’s it! Since she is always close to Kanae, she is Tokiya’s first victim. If you stick up with her, you will find out you already knew everything there was to learn about her, and will have to sit through a very boring route. At least she is cute and there is lots of icha-icha events…

moteyaba06moteyaba08Yonaga Aoba is a very sadistic lady who is friends with Meguri. She lies about having a weak body just to take people off guard. She is actually one of those “perfect anime girls” who are able to beat a world champion when trying something for the first time, without any kind of training or study prior to it. Which means she is stronger than King Meruem, since he needs at least three matches before being able to defeat a national champ (Yes! I am comparing her to a monster!). She loves to show her superiority and takes pleasure seeing the faces of those defeated by her. There is but one flaw to her divinity: She can’t swim. That’s when Tokiya finds something useful to do. Even so, everyone agrees on one thing about their relationship: He would be pwned by her for the rest of his life! At least, you don’t need to be a masochist to appreciate her, I guess… As long as you don’t find her “Desuno”s to be annoying…

moteyaba10moteyaba09 Mizunashi Miya is a senpai who had a brief meeting with Tokiya prior to the game’s events. Later, she recognizes her feelings as love, therefore, she thinks her feelings are genuine, but this is questionable, since she never got to know Tokiya properly before being cursed by him.

moteyaba19moteyaba20Yumemiya Yurika is a super energetic fake-loli-senpai who seems to have a sixth sense for troubled youngsters, because she always comes from nowhere to give advices (that end up being not so helpful, but at least, she tries!). She is “capturable” after watching Meguri’s end, but her route is as short as she is…

moteyaba17moteyaba18 Aisaka Sarina is the school’s nurse. She is almost expressionless and sometimes act kinda childish. She is best friends with Yurika, but even the chibi-senpai doesn’t know much about her. This is until you become able to follow her route after completing all other heroines. It’s when she reveals to be a very sweet girl who always wanted to experience love, but was no good with this kind of stuff. Unfortunately, her route is the shortest in the game.

Graphics

moteyaba07This time around, all the drawings are done by the same artist: Ikegami Akane, which is something very rare in Galges these days. I consider the quality of the drawings and the character designs to be very decent, since there’s no weird poses, consistence in styles and every heroine looks very different from each other, instead of looking like the same person using different wigs. This is specially hard to accomplish when the heroines have to use the same school uniforms, but Ikegami manages to do it, somehow.

Sounds

And here I go repeating myself. It’s almost always the same thing for every Galge I play: Voice-acting is awesome – Soundtrack is mediocre. Since I am tired of typing the same thing over and over, I decided that I will only talk about those stuff when there’s something out of the ordinary.

Tokiya Sucks!! (A.K.A. Conclusion)

Don’t get me wrong! The cast of heroines is great, but Tokiya single handed nearly ruined the whole game for me! But if you have no problem with “hetare” type of characters, you should be ok with him, I suppose…moteyaba16

.
While I was playing this game, I felt like I was playing Sonic 3. I don’t want to play as Sonic! The only thing he can do is run really fast! Sonic sucks! I want to play as that other guy! That red…creature! THAT GUY! Knuckles! He’s WAY cooler than Sonic! Why can’t I have Knuckles as my main character? Damn it!moteyaba21

  1. Still miffed that “With Ribbon” didn’t have a route for the time-traveling daughter. They went so far to tease you with it too.

    • I am not sure, but I read somewhere about a patch that would add routes not only for the daughter, but even for the mother as well, don’t know if it’s true though…

      • That’s part of the teasing I was talking about. The patch only adds 4 short stories, one each for dat loli mom, the teacher, the one blonde classmate that got left out, and the daughter. No routes or H scenes for them, only some short story fluff leading up to peeping, ofuro, or some other generic mildly ecchi scene. They’re not even voiced!

      • Seriously? That’s sad! Specially the part about the lack of voice-acting! I am glad I did not play those!

  2. Guys Can you give a walkthrough about this game

    • There’s a very good walkthrough right here: http://seiya-saiga.com/game/hulotte/moteyaba.html
      The options with “☆” only appear after some playthroughs, while options with a “※” are about what to do during H-scenes, it doesn’t matter what you choose.
      If you are trying to get to Meguri’s route, you need to finish Miya, Aoba, Maina and Kanae’s routes first. If you want to go to the sub-characters route (Yurika and Sarina), you need to finish Meguri’s route. If you don’t want to have this much work, you can also download a save file that already have all routes unlocked: http://seiya-saiga.com/save/moteyaba.zip
      If there’s still something troubling you, feel free to ask.

  3. where is the download link i think i want to play it :D.

    • There are many ways to acquire games like this, but since we want to support the developers, it’s complicated to give you direct links to illegal download copies. Sorry about this…

  4. i want to buy the disk but i dont know how to buy it can you tell me the link to buy the disk on online shop? *thanks

  5. owh i almost forgot i already download it *Trial Version 😀 but when i want to play it it say something broken can you tell me why that’s happend ?

    • Can you give more details? If possible, a print-screen showing the error message. You probably already did that, but just to make sure, did you change the settings of your PC to Japanese language, region and time?

  6. when im open the file (rar) it says “Unexpected end of archieve

  7. because that i think i want to buy the disk or anylink that i can see to buy the disk or anything else

    • “Unexpected end of archieve” means the download failed, it should be okey if you try again. It’s better to play the demo before go buying Galges, trust me, those things are expensive and most don’t make worth its price. There are titles that brought me everlasting shame and regret for buying it. Depending on where you live, It’s very difficult to find where to buy Galges for PC. But, usually, Amazon does the trick.

  8. wow so that okay if i download again thanks gangrelion i gonna download it again but the price it’s doesn’t matter to me, the problem is i dont know where the galge for pc :b

  9. hey gangrelion do you play the trial version?

    • Yes, a lot of them! This helps me to avoid spending time and money on worthless things. I usually download trials from getchu, it’s more pratical and the links there are safer and more stable than the ones you find on the official sites.

  10. okay i download it from getchu too thanks again gangrelion 😀

  11. ah,,, gangrelion there no getchu in official website can you send me the link hehehe… 😀

  12. ok thanks gangrelion i will download it soon !

  13. something problem gangrelion when im want to download it always failed.
    i download it from getchu and always failed in 167mb T_T

  14. okay i check that right now !

  15. hey gangrelion im done with the download thanks too you but when i open the rar there so many application so i wanna ask wich one should i open it?

  16. im already open all of them but when i open it , it just extracting bar !

    • look for a .exe file, probably you will have to install it first. Don’t forget to change the region/language of your PC to japanese, or else, it will not work

  17. how to instal it and i already change the region/language to japan

  18. i dont see any file with exe.

  19. there are 3 file with exe witch one?

    • It should be a file with this name:
      “妹のおかげでモテすぎてヤバい。TR.exe”
      But if your PC is not showing this name, it is because you don’t have japanese fonts and language installed yet. You must install that on your PC or you will be unable to play almost every visual novel. If your PC is correctly configured, this file should start the game right away, you don’t neede to install the trial. If you don’t have Japanese configurations, it will give you a error window.

  20. so what should im download can you give me all the link that i must download it?

    • Sorry, but I can’t, because the files you have to install are usually included in the original disk you used to install your windows (or other OS). If you’re using windows 8, it should not be necessary to install anything, you just have to look for an option in your “control panel”, the option is named like “region” or “language” (the name changes a little from version to version), you have to change the settings inside this option to Japan or Japanese. It will ask to restart your PC and it should be ok…

  21. yeag i know im already restart my comp but when i want to open “妹のおかげでモテすぎてヤバい。TR.exe” it always extracting and after that there will be information that will lead you too always update”””” and update -_-
