BL Game: Tokyo Onmyouji (TYRANT)


Can’t believe the last update I did for this game was in 2012 ^^;; Anyway before we knew it, Tokyo Onmyouji will be available in 9 days’ time! The official site didn’t release any H-voices, so I guess I can’t tell if the main uke character would be any good… I’m rather out-of-touch with the newer seiyuus voicing BL.

Anyway, check out the countdown voices released daily till the release!

Summary:

西暦2014年。東京、新宿。陰陽師が職業として認識されている日本。東京は大空襲を経験することなく、第二次世界大戦が終わった。古いものと新しいものが混ざり合った日々。平穏に満ちたはずの日常の中、妖が人々に危害を与える事件が多発していた。その対策として白羽の矢が立てられたのは、終戦当時、進行が解禁されたばかりの陰陽道――すなわち陰陽師であった。混沌に呑まれようとしている世界。虚ろな魂がさまよい、漂う、東京。悪影響を及ぼす妖の多くは、元人間だったことが判明する。なぜ、人が妖と化してしまうのか。その裏でうごめく闇の正体とは。数多の想いが交差するこの地を舞台に起こる怪異。それらの解決が、真実へ続く道につながっている。……かもしれない。

This is the new 18+ BL game by TYRANT which is the brother company of LoveDelivery. If I’m not wrong, their parent company is HolicWorks (Yandere Heaven series)

Ah~ 2013… This will be a long wait but let’s keep our fingers crossed that the game will be completed when the release date comes. I haven’t received my copy of Cool-B yet and it probably has more information.

The artist for this new BL game is Sakamoto Akira 坂本あきら. She is the same illustrator who also did the art for Yandere Heaven series.

Why are these seiyuus’ pseudonyms in kanji mostly related to birds ^^;; Big bird, sparrow and falcon.

Some information about what an Onmyouji is.

According to wiki, Onmyouji (陰陽師) was one of the classifications of civil servants belonging to the Bureau of Onmyou in ancient Japan’s ritsuryo system. People with this title were professional practitioners of onmyoudou.

Onmyouji were specialists in magic and divination. Their court responsibilities ranged from tasks such as keeping track of the calendar, to mystical duties such as divination and protection of the capital from evil spirits. They could divine auspicious or harmful influences in the earth, and were instrumental in the moving of capitals. It is said that an onmyouji could also summon and control shikigami.

Famous onmyouji include Kamo no Yasunori and Abe no Seimei (921–1005). After Seimei’s death the emperor had a shrine erected at his home in Kyoto.

Onmyouji had political clout during the Heian period, but in later times when the imperial court fell into decline, their state patronage was lost completely. In modern day Japan onmyouji are defined as a type of Shinto priest, and although there are many that claim to be mediums and spiritualists, the onmyouji continues to be a hallmark occult figure.

There isn’t any Onmyouji BL games I can recall from recent memory but I definitely love these supernatural themes and of course, handsome guys in traditional Japanese clothing.

  1. I guess I forgot to mention this as well, but she’s not new to the visual novel business. She did the artwork for a probably still new company called Senz. Link is down there. Which is how I found out about her because I came across the opening of the game. That should give you guys more of an idea of how her work is really going to look like.

    1. @bt_tara: Ah Daylight… I have impression of that :D It’s not exactly BL/18+ but they tried to make it seem like it. Thanks for the info! Looks promising! :D

  2. Ah, this artist has done a variety of work shonen, seinen, shoujo, doujinshi, and yaoi. Though there’s not a lot of information about her. I managed to dig this much out because of the type of fan I am ^_^; . Interesting how Relentless/Creative searching can pay off.

    I’ll provide a link to her blog and website (but the first one I gave you is the one she updates the most), which has a side bar that showcases all the commercial work she’s done.

  3. Okay art…can’t say I’m too into Supernatural BL, but then again it’s too early to say.

    I’m just cracking because I see Viscount Druitt.

    1. @pony: I see you put up the character designs! Though she still needs work when it comes to drawing the lower half of the body and many other things, but her artwork is still pretty.

    2. @bt_tara: I’ll try to add the character descriptions later on. The artwork is not as polished as it should be yet but looks promising! They have a year more to work on it lol~ XD 2013!
