Putting the "Joy" back in joystick

Experience the tumultuous life in the city of modern samurai in Minato Soft’s Majikoi! Love Me Seriously!, a slice-of-life visual novel, now available on JAST USA.

Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! takes place in Kawakami City. While it may look like a typical Japanese town from the outset, it's a place built on tradition, where your samurai lineage determines your social status, friends, and future. The city is also home to Kawakami Academy, where aside from the usual subjects, students also practice martial arts and learn the meaning of the samurai spirit.

The story’s protagonist is Naoe Yamato, a student of the academy, infamous for his underhanded approach to combat. It's his preference to rely on his brains rather than brawn and find the safest ways to get his friends out of trouble, even if some may find his chosen solutions unethical at times. Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! follows Yamato and his closest friends, some of whom used to share rivalries and often still don’t see eye to eye, as two new characters join their unusual group, making the already chaotic life in the city of martial arts even more unpredictable.

Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! features a thirty to forty hour-long story filled with action, comedy, and drama, full Japanese voice acting for its main cast, and ten different endings to discover, based upon the choices you make along the way.

At first glance, Kawakami City may look like any other normal Tokyo commuter town, with its bustling train station and gentrified neighborhoods. However, it's a place where your samurai lineage determines your social status, friends, and future.

This is the home of Yamato and his six friends. They've had many adventures together over the years, and even created a "secret base" where they could hang out, safe from the troubles of the world. Although they've known each other since childhood that doesn't mean they were always friends, nor does it mean that they are similar. Far from it. But despite their differences (or perhaps because of their differences), they are as close as edamame in a pod.

All seven of them attend Kawakami Academy, a unique and prestigious institution where martial arts are integrated into its values and conflict-resolution system. Its principal is also the headmaster at Kawakami Temple, where the world's greatest martial artists come to train and test their strength. Yamato and his friends learn not only facts and figures, but teamwork and the meaning of the samurai spirit.

This year two new members will join Yamato and his circle of friends, creating new conflict, drama, and perhaps even romance.

Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! is now available on JAST USA for the promotional price of $36.19, where it will later cost $39.99. The visual novel is also slated for a release on Steam in early 2021, but no exact date has been given as of yet.

Additionally, a physical edition of Majikoi! Love Me Seriously!, containing the game on DVD and a Steam download card, the game’s OST, an artbook, and five acrylic keychains, is currently available for pre-order on J-List for the promotional price of $71.99. After release, the physical release will be sold for $79.99. The physical edition of the visual novel is currently limited to five hundred copies. Those who purchase this version will also be e-mailed a key for the visual novel to redeem on JAST USA, allowing them to play it right away.
