6 Tokimeki Restaurant hotties to choose from! Not difficult to guess who my favourite is XD Actually, it was love at first sight when I first saw him in this mobile game a couple of years back ^^;; I have 3 top favs out of the 6.
Quick intro of what Tokimeki Restaurant is about in case you decide to “invest” in cloth posters (3000 Yen each o_O) for your room lol~

Voice: Full-voice only during introduction.
Game objectives: Run your own restaurant, gain new recipes, furniture, CGs, scenarios, etc, by completing quests (seriously endless cooking orz;;), feed the boys and be romanced by them.
The game was first published in 2013. For some reason, I didn’t get round to publishing a review then even though I took all those screen caps. They ended up useless since quite a number of changes to the app has been implemented since then, such as layouts of menus, etc. I guess I’ll leave it to you to give it a try yourself :) In general, most of the functions remain the same.
You play the protagonist 主人公. As in most otome games, your character doesn’t have a face in all the CG artworks. But your chibi version does. Otherwise it’ll be quite inconvenient lol~ The protagonist is recommended by a relative and started working at the restaurant. You stay with the restaurant owner and get to meet the boys since their company has appointed the restaurant as the official caterer. And as all otome games go, all of them have an interest in you after getting to know you. But true to Konami’s otome game tradition, you’re a little dull/insensitive to such things and doesn’t get it most of the time.
To be honest, I didn’t expect to continue playing it till now. The game is VERY repetitive. You pretty much have to cook non-stop in order to complete quests. After the initial excitement dies down (yes, there is a entertaining feature where you get to touch the characters and they respond with sexy moans lol~), the new CGs and scenarios that you can get from new events and missions are the only things keeping me going on now. Which leads to even more mindless cooking orz;;; Why did I fall in love with you Kento!? orz;;; (And Tooru and Kaito… erm… yeah I have a huge capacity for bishie love lol~) Anyway…
Poke me… Here there and everywhere…
Main characters from 2 idol groups are: 3 Majesty and X.I.P
Leaders of the groups were voted by fans before the app was launched.
1) 3 Majesty: The princely-type group.
Kirishima Tsukasa 霧島 司（きりしま つかさ）Voice actor: Namikawa Daisuke 浪川大輔
Megane-kun! He is the “proper” and serious type. Health-conscious too, so he goes for the salads and stuff.
Otowa Shinnosuke 音羽 慎之介（おとわ しんのすけ）Voice actor: Kishio Daisuke 岸尾だいすけ
The dessert-loving prince but he has a dark side to him haa… Haraguro 腹黒い-type.
Tsuji Kaito 辻 魁斗（つじ かいと） Voice actor: Kakihara Tetsuya 柿原徹也
One of my favourite boys. He is CUTE! Hard worker and tries his best :3 Similar type as Kurusu Sho from Uta no Prince-sama
2) X.I.P.: The sexy idol group.
Date Kyouya 伊達 京也（だて きょうや） Voice actor: Toriumi Kousuke 鳥海浩輔
The typical suave and “host”-type guy XD His lines are peppered with English phrases here and there. Best reference template would be Jinguji Ren from Uta no Prince-sama.
Fuwa Kento 不破 剣人（ふわ けんと）Voice actor: Hino Satoshi 日野聡
He was love at first sight. My favourite when I started playing the game. Nope, its not just the body ok… he is so MANLY that his favourite food is MEAT. HAHAHAHA. And he gets to fan-service us most often. Look at that face and bod!!! <3 Yeah. Kento is my fav.
Kanzaki Tooru 神崎 透（かんざき とおる） Voice actor: Eguchi Takuya 江口拓也
He is the little-devil 小悪魔 type :) I LOVE him… right after Kento :D Loves spicy food and hates the sweet stuff. Hates to be called chibi (shorty) since he is the shortest of the 6. Teases you a lot.
More official screen shots of the game. In the beginning intro, the game is full-voiced. After that, you only hear them utter sounds like, ah~, hahaha, erm, oh, and a few short phrases like “da-ka-ra”, etc…
You get new furniture and items to decorate your restaurant with each mission completed.
And interact with the characters when they pop by. The scenarios are repeated once you completed all of them. They add new scenarios periodically.
Hopefully they release full-length hugging pillow of Kento in the future :P (old habits die hard) And now back to more virtual cooking =_=;;
