Tsukasa is the head of the Toono shrine, which he and his sister Sayaka take care of. However, they’re being forced to move out under pressure from his childhood friend Misaki’s father’s company. One day, Misaki’s father’s car crashed into and destroyed the small shrine for some reason. Two cat spirits Hina and Sakuya appear and Sakuya casts a curse, which accidentally hits Misaki, causing her to grow nekomimi and a tail. Now they have to find a way to lift Misaki’s curse, while solving the shrine’s eviction problems at the same time.
This appeals to the nekomimi fans out there. Sayaka is a cute imouto who reminds me of Haramiko‘s Miharu, probably since they’re both red-haired mikos. The PV was really cute and made me laugh a lot. I don’t think the story is that special nor will the game be more than a standard love comedy chara-game. Not that it’s a bad thing.
While I am a bit pessimistic about anything involving cat ears judging by everything so far Neko Koi may actually manage to come out as a better than average game despite clearly being aimed at the nekomimi trait. I think for once I will dare to be positive here after all I did like Omamori Himari (The manga, NOT the anime, which sucked) there may be hope for catgirls after all. Concerning the game itself I agree with Micchi about it being pretty typical love comedy, but at the same time I would like to point it out it gives the impression of being skillfully crafted instead of simply thrown together in a careless manner. Art is not particularly aligned with my taste however it is clean and well done, so nothing to complain about there either. I suppose I will have to give this game a shot to see if there can be any hope for nekomimi mode.
