The best TGS swag I got was this creepy old man brochure (gallery)


Oyaji Girly aka Fatherly Girly Hunting

There's so much kawaii shit at TGS (and in Japan in general) that it sort of cancels itself out of the attention span. To reach the most jaded people you have to go further ... fatherly, even. To be honest, I have no idea what's going on with Team Cinderella's new game OyajiGirly but it was one of the funniest things I saw at the show. At a glance it looks like your typical dating sim variant, where your choice of misunderstood aged protagonist goes about town to win the hearts of various underaged-looking schoolgirls for sale, but is that really what's going on here? By the looks of it, they've reversed the formula and are making you hunt the fathers instead!

A rough Google translation gives us some insight: "Here is your room! From being able to call the old man who was trapped in the room, it was observed invited to your room your favorite dad. It would look cute gestures Tap the father. Now, we will go out to capture the father!" Why wasn't this a Star Wars game? A missed opportunity. 

The cast is interesting as well: Apparently the guy in the header picture might be locally famous: Sailor Fuku Ojisan hangs around in Shinjuku and Shibuya. An engineer by day, but on weekends he hangs around giving high school students good luck. Legend is that you speak to this man you'll get a significant other soon. What a bad ass. Here he is with Ladybeard so your face can melt. I'll leave it to you to figure out the other papas.

The treatment seems very lighthearted and very self-aware, and it's probably a riot by the looks of their Twitter account. Still, my puritan western eyes find the whole JK thing a little unsettling, but if that's your bag try scanning the QR code in the gallery and give it a grope.

Here is your room! 
From being able to call the old man who was trapped in the room, 
it was observed invited to your room your favorite dad. 
It would look cute gestures Tap the father. 
Now, we will go out to capture the father!
