Based on the otome situation CD series by GignoSystem Japan, Inc, there are a total of 12 characters released so far. For iPhone, the characters are available in 3 sets of 4 each. For Android, you can download each character individually.
Each character features 95 sound clips (inclusive of the ones you have to pay for). The paid voice packs are at 170 Yen each.
The app is currently only in Japanese but it is pretty easy to use. If you’re familiar with other voice alarm apps released in the past, you should have no problems playing with these. I’ll only be covering the Guardian Deities set in this post. The rest of the apps are the same.
The first character you see is Ashura-ou. If you tap on him, you’ll see his character page. There are two options. Profile and Talk. When you tap on Talk, you’ll hear voice clips which are loaded randomly. The functions are the same for all characters.
If you don’t tap on Ashura-ou, you can slide from right to left to get to Karura-ou.
Slide across to get to Taishyaku-ten.
Next is Bon-ten. Before explaining character functions, I’ll cover the main menu options first.
Starting with the alarm function. Tap on Voice to select the character morning call.
Tap the buttons below to access each set of 2 morning call voices for each character.
You can play the morning call and listen to the full sample.
The second and third menu options from the main pages are Shop and Voice List.
The Voice List brings up the voice clips you collected so far when you Talk to the characters. According the character page you are in, it’ll load the corresponding voice list of that character.
Each Character profile page has the option to buy the original CD that the character is based on.
If you tap on it, a message prompt will ask if you would like to go to aura’s official shopping site.
If you clicked ok, it’ll bring you to the shopping site to buy the character’s CD.
If you noticed, there are two buttons on the main page that will take you out of the app. One is to go to the official website. The other is to take you to the maker’s recommended apps, such as their otome romance game.
That’s pretty much all there is to the app. Sounds easy to use, isn’t it? These are the rest of the 2 sets of characters you can install on your phone for free :)
I think these apps are pretty basic for the functions they offer since the main purpose is to entice you to buy the original CDs. There is completely no animation in the apps at all. So don’t expect the extra eye-candy that we have come to expect with Soine (sleep with you) apps. However, the seiyuus more than makes up for it and quite enjoyable. The sound quality is great too!
