WTF: Hato-ful Kareshi J introduced this game to me last night and we played the free version together for a bit. It is BEST DATING SIM EVER. I mean it. It's awesome. You need to download the free version ASAP. Just a note: the listed seiyuu are just a joke. But the rest is very, very real.

In fact, its unashamed genre-bending is admirable.
