Quote

Coming from a prestigious family, that didn't want him, in the financial world, Yuusei had been home-schooled strictly and sheltered all his life. Even though he excelled at everything, it was his dream to live a life of a commoner. One day his chance came and he changed his identity to Asahi and entered Fairy Girl’s School, which specializes in female fashion for the rich. As part of his plan, he became the maid of his classmate Luna and worked at her home Sakura-yashiki. Also living there were a proud exchange student from Switzerland, Ursule, a Yamato Nadeshiko, Mizuho, and his childhood Minato, who had feelings for him and was also the only one who knew his true identity. With her help, will he be able to manage his double life in the school and his new home?

Don't you think crossdressing protagonists are amazing? They are like the rare existences within the moege or charage genre that defied the usual protagonist cliché for these genres. They are proactive. They are usually capable in many ways that give reasons for the heroines to develop feelings for them. But the most important of all, they stand out as characters of their own, not chained down by the usual blank states of protagonists in moege and charage with their own VAs and actual portraits(with visible eyes!). Sometimes, their charisma, and cuteness no doubt, even overshadows other heroines in the game, thus, the unique exceptions of the MC being best girls.

Well, I could gush about how much I love games with trap protagonists and why they are the pinnacle of moege and charage, sometimes even chuunige, for the rest of this post but let's refrain from doing that.

And while the West only received two VN titles starring trap protagonist (the first Otoboku, while a solid game on its own, often overshadowed by its kamige sequel, and the unfinished patch of Koitate), a lot of games with crossdressing MC that are well-received in Japan aren't heard of here. One of which is the famous Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou (Tsuriotsu) for short. It's, in my opinion, one of the best VN ever written simply based on its characters and their interactions. The game also offered a unique theme of high fashion design which actually works as more than just the gimmick and centered to the plot as the motivation and drives of the characters. 

And the charm point of the series has to go to Sakurakouji Luna-sama, who won the getchu award for best character 3 years in a row. Luna-sama banzai! 

Seriously though, this is an incredible work which explores some real intriguing theme along with a likable and endearing cast of characters. And that is selling Tsuriotsu short. 

Sadly fan-attempted to translate has mostly been unsuccessful. Nevertheless, I hope you guys can bring this wonderful work to the West(along with its multiple sequels and spin-off FDs, if possible) for it is my dearest wish for VN fans to experience this amazing game.

MangaGamer tried to get newer Navel titles for years, with no luck. I doubt NekoNyan can do any better.

I remember they did get 2 Shuffle spin-off back in 2014. Then they completely shifted to Waffle's stuff and BL titles.

That's not entirely fair. They release plenty of stuff by Moonstone, Circus, minori, and other moe/romance brands. As compared to 2 BL games and 2 Waffle games so far. And they tried to get Oretsuba, but no luck.

Those games with trap protagonists have one big flaw: Proatgonist is always best girl!

 

月に寄りそう乙女の作法 was pretty good, but as said before Navel doesn't seem to want their games in the west, otherwise MG would already work on oretsuba or this one.

Probably to make fun of us Western readers.

”You wanna read our novels? Hope your local college has a good Japanese program.”

Kinda depends on the company. Some companies are selfish and don’t allow localization, others just make it difficult by demanding Kickstarters or other conditions.

I was exaggerating a bit though.
