Otome Game Review: Fxxx Me Royally!! Horny Magical Princess!

Intro: Princess Marie wants a husband from the parallel universe known as Earth. Things go wrong with her transportation spell and she crash lands on top of two ikemen.

I’m still learning this language, but I’ve made significant progress and have even translated an otome game on my own for practice. Lastly, how I’ve been learning this language may not work for everyone.

This post will detail what I did to get as far as I have with Japanese and what worked for me. Links are affiliate links. There’s absolutely no pressure to use them.
