posted on by Egan Loo
Idea Factory's Otomate brand of otome games for female players announced during its Otomate Party event this past weekend that its Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan game is inspiring both an anime adaptation and a sequel game.
Like the first game, the tentatively titled Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan Zokuhen game sequel will be a PlayStation Vita romance adventure game for female players. Satoi and Yuma Katagiri are returning as illustrator and scenario writer, respectively. Yuuki Kaji, Nobuhiko Okamoto, Ryota Ohsaka, Ryohei Kimura, Kenichi Suzumura, and Takahiro Sakurai are reprising their roles in the voice cast. The release dates and prices for both the anime adaptation and the sequel game have not been announced.
Idea Factory streamed a teaser video for the sequel game:
The story of the first game is set in the Taisho Era at the beginning of the 20th century — except the era did not end in 15 years (as it did in real life) but lasted 25 years. To protect her family which fell from its former glory, a girl decides to marry a man whose name she does not even know. However, before she does, her little brother commits suicide in a mysterious fire, with an old book in hand.
The Imperial Library Information Assets Management Bureau — also known as "Fukurō" — then appears before the confused girl. According to the Fukurō, there exists books called Maremono which exert a great influence on those who read it. Moreover, the girl gained the ability to see an "Aura" due to the incident with her brother. Despite her confusion, the girl chooses to leave the "birdcage" of her former life.
Otomate released the original game on April 21.
Update: Video added.
