Yo-Jin-Bo is probably the first Otome game that has been licensed to English. You found an antique necklace in a historical excavation site, upon bringing it at home, a ghastly hologram of a princess named Hatsuhime appeared seeking for help. Whether you decline or accept, you will be pulled to the past and help her escape her assassination.5 bodyguards were hired to help you escape. Depending on your choice, you’d end up with one of them or die (Bad End).
Yozaburo is the youngest of them. He’s a skilled ninja with strong kicks and sharp hearing senses. He doesn’t like to be treated like a kid though.
You safely landed after the branches breaks the acceleration of your fall and when the real Hatsuhime was to be transformed back but Mon-Mon touched the amulet and she went into his body instead. Hatsuhime didn’t complain though, in fact she’s so happy that she wanted to travel and impress his dad that she’s gonna be a male heir.
But since you are stuck on Hatsuhime’s body you are to be engaged with another heir, so Yo decided to leave before that happens. When he was about to get out of the place, he noticed a presence around the bushes and decided to pounce on it. But he was surprised it was actually the heroine and she told Yo she wanted to be a ninja just like him. The heroine actually escaped from the wedding which made Yozaburo worried, but he’s happy she wanted to stay with him.
Yo-Jin-Bo’s dialogue antics and star wars references are hilarious. There are no Heroine stats in the game though, but there is a timer when picking a choice so be sure to read the walk through ahead on or you’ll miss it. The game route is really short tough, but because there are many guys to choose from the game length is slightly longer.
I just noticed this is the second time I chose a shota route first. I feel like a perv~, and here I am hating those lolicon driven men. Oh lol.
