Have I become the hero of this book?
The protagonist, Shiba シバ takes his usual path home from school and spots a mysterious bookstore. In there, he discovers a storybook of a fairy tale he read when he was a child, “Momo-taro”. He opens the book and finds himself sucked inside! An adventure inside the fantastical world of Momo-taro begins and with the choices he makes, he can even find love!
This is probably not new to people who own an iPhone/iPod Touch but I just found out about it! Very cute illustrations from the looks of it!
In the lite (free) version, you can play the complete route of one of the characters, Kenshin 謙信 who is Shiba’s school mate… That’s the yummy-looking blue-haired guy in most of the images here. The full paid version will allow you to pursue the other characters in the game.
However, the game is not voiced or translated, so you’ll need to understand Japanese to enjoy it. I think it should be shounen-ai and nothing explicit since the rating is for 12+ and above.
Their school uniforms remind me of Gakuen Heaven lol~
