Just when you thought that dating sim (even manga-only) couldn't get any weirder.

Fixed that for ya Razz

I'm following the anime and it is funny as it is educational.

I wanna know if any of Frieda Kahlo's artwork will be adapted into a possible love interest. Or Picasso. Because those would be interesting to see.

I like this idea of being able to date people found in paintings. Here's to hoping that there will be a reverse harem version of this game soon. Laughing

Honestly, this idea seems more normal than some actual dating sims (that grasshopper girl one and Hatoful Boyfriend comes to mind).

As much as I'd like the thought of this, sadly it's not an actual game, just a concept in a gag manga.

Between the entire eroge industry and doujin scene, and whatever crazy antiques by otakus, I'm pretty sure if it hasn't been created yet someone somewhere is working on it...

Well, not a visual novel but there is a manga about anthropomorphized tapeworms....

An official manga that was serialized in a magazine(Comp Ace) and popular enough to warrant 5 published tankoubons. Heck, if you want, the volumes are available from cdjapan(though the more practical solution would be to find the scanlated version online as it's doubtful it'll ever get a Western release. Of course, Seven Seas with their monster girl line...)
