Some of these look like girls so much it's weird... Still, glad to see that there's at least some things out there for the female audience to counteract with all the stuff for the male audience.

Should this mobile game one day become an anime show, I'll be sure to watch it! Smile I'm particularly interested in the swordsmen sporting feminine appearances.

Anime when? I can see the Sengoku Basara fangirls going gaga for this! Not sure I'd like it myself, but more bishies in the world can't be a bad thing! (Although, I wouldn't mind if some female weapons or blacksmiths showed up for balance, as opposed to stuff for guys that feature girls exclusively, I think women don't mind a supporting female character to even things out within a fandom's world. At least I do!)

-grabby hands-
Want to play.
What are the odds this gets translated and put in the Play Store?
Not remotely?
sigh Sad
I know some people have figured out how to get the Japanese version of Gijin Kareshi et al, but I'm kind of a tech-failure.

If the trigger was the "clitoris" in Upotte, I wonder what the grip of the swords will be in this one Laughing

Anime please

You're probably alone there. They have to look out for the fujoshi market, and fujoshi don't like having female characters around because they get in the way of their yaoi delusions.

The weapons are based off of either Japanese swords or polearms. The latter of which could have various jokes made about it.

From this post alone I can't tell if you're aware or not, but Gijin Kareshi has been available in English on Play and iTunes under the name Animal Boyfriend for a couple of months now. Very Happy

Or maybe fujoshi are actual people with their own individual tastes and preferences?

On that note, the tanto and wakizashi will kindly remind you that it's not the size, but how you use it.

oh no, I spend mad money on AB, I just don't know of any other games that aren't also already translated to use as an example so I went with the most popular one. xD I'm so envious of the people who have both versions, the JPN one has got some REALLY cute stuff lately, but I have tried and miserably failed to figure it out with my own phone.

I really want to play this one though, so many different types and the art is all gorgeous. Maybe it'll be really popular and I'll get my wish. :3 Gotta have dreams.
