BL Game: Hana Ki Sou (PSP, Miki Shinichirou, Mitsuki Saiga, Ishida Akira)

If you happen to own a PSP (which I don’t… T~T), you might be interested to know that there -ARE- BL games on this game platform… however scarce they are…

Hanakisou is a shounen-ai title. Like Cherry blossom~チェリーブロッサム, there aren’t issues with porting over to the PSP platform. If you’re looking for 18+ R-rated stuff that you can find on PC games ;) Even if they were originally R-rated/M-rated, the scenes with questionable pixelated bits would have been removed, as in Gakuen Heaven 学園ヘヴン BOY’S LOVE SCRAMBLE!

Hanakisou had very good reviews when it was first released as a PC game.

No luck for Nintendo DS players, cos there are no BL games for it yet.

This game was first released in 2003/2004 as a PC doujin game if I’m not wrong. Followed by a PS2 port in 2006. Fantasy theme. Shounen-ai. I think if you like Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru 裏切りは僕の名前を知っている character designs by Odagiri Hotaru 小田切ほたる you’ll probably love the visuals of Hana Ki Sou too.

Voice casts include: Miki Shinichirou, Mitsuki Saiga, Itou Kentarou, Ishida Akira, etc.

I’m quite tempted to buy Hana Ki Sou… now that the PSP version will be available, even though I don’t have time to play any games nowadays (nor own the console lol). It includes all the PC versions (original PC game + the fan disks if I’m not wrong). I’ve also heard great things about the story and characters.

    I didn’t think Ishida Akira was doing BL anymore?! I’m psyched to see that’s not true :D

  2. 52 mos, 1 wk ago

    @Caddy C: I believe Ishida Akira voiced the character before he quit BL and since this is mainly a PSP port from the previously released PC game + fan disks, I don’t think the seiyuus were required to voice new material in this case :)

    So unfortunately, this doesn’t signal his return to the BL world in any way.

    I may be slow on the uptake here, but don’t you have to have a Japan region PSP to play Japanese games?

    Think any of these will have a language translation function of any kind for the controls+ Its one of the reasons I don’t play BL games at all, too much work. Its a shame none of these games ever come here. :(

  4. 51 mos, 1 wk ago

    @Jenny: Thanks for dropping by! As far as I know (even tho I don’t own a psp OTL) PSPs do not have region restrictions like PS2. So you shouldn’t have any problems playing Japanese games. Or have you encountered any issues with them before? :O

    It’s worth learning the controls ^^ cos I think they’re relatively similar and you get better at recognising them. If you need help… let me know. I’ll try my best :3

    Is there a game retailer in your area that imports Japanese games? You can try asking :) If not, the best bet we have is to buy from online stores. I think it’s easier to play these games if it is on a portable console since we can play it any where and not be locked in front of the PC or TV.

    Thank you pony. :) They all look dandy. I might import one. I haven’t imported Duel Love yet though, or my favorite Mamegoma seal games (adorable!) but I guess Yaoi is more important than cute squeaking mascots. XD

  6. 51 mos, 1 wk ago

    @Jenny: Mamegoma seal games? lol~ so cute! I gotta check em out XDD When I get my hands on my own PSP and these games, I’ll probably share my thoughts about how they are ^^

    @Jenny Ha ha, you import the mamegoma games too? xD
    I agree though, the BL is more important. : P

    Oh and Ponytail, just wanted to let you know that there are indeed 18+ games on the psp. I’ve seen them on Play-Asia.com though none so far have been BL. I don’t know the reason behind this myself, but they should totally give in to the dark side, right?

  8. 48 mos ago

    @maufii: Yeah much as we like it to happen, I think there isn’t enough demand for 18+ PSP BL games yet. It’s a much smaller market compared to ero and otome games. The highest matured rating PSP BL game is 17+ so far. At the end of the day, if the merchandise isn’t going to make the game companies much money, it won’t be released.

    @m: That’s very resourceful of ya! :D I checked out the page. We’re not supposed to request for game ports on the wish list for voting. Their FAQ warned that they’ll remove it and ban the user ^^;; But they allow us to raise a request on their forum thread located here: http://nisamerica.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=31

    Can you create a thread there and provide the information about the translations you have over there? Let me know after you’ve done that and I’ll help publicise it here too :)

    @m: I saw someone raise a request for Hetalia and Kuni no Alice PSP port. From the responses shown, chances for visual novel ports are not high… let alone BL :-\ unless it is very popular but no harm trying :)
