Yandere Boyfriend is a mobile app. It tells a story through text and audio. Unlike an otome game, there are no options to select. The beginning chapters are free to read. It costs $7.99 to unlock all the chapters.
The story: You are a transfer student and join the music club. There, you meet a guy named Leo. Another guy at the music club gets into an accident and leaves the club. You are the only person that saw Leo that day so you confront him about it. He confesses that he tampered with the chair, which caused the accident.
Your friend, Grace, tells you that she has a crush on Leo. When Leo asks you to be his girlfriend, you reject him and say that Grace likes him. (I don’t know why MC said this…) From the conversation, Leo gathers that you want to make Grace happy so he agrees to go out with her. However, the one he likes is you.
The good: The story is pretty good so far. The yandere aspect does not disappoint.
The strongest point is the yandere boyfriend’s voice. The voice actor speaks in Korean and he does a very good job overall. The yandere boyfriend, Leo, occasionally leaves you voice mail. Sometimes it’s him singing, other times it’s him telling you how much he loves you.
There are other sounds, such as the school bell and the piano playing in the music room.
The bad: Since you play the passive role as the reader and have no say in what happens in the story, I’ll just say it: I do not like MC. She should be more honest with her friend.
If you are reading in English, there are some grammar mistakes. However, I chose to overlook this as I focused more on the yandere’s voice and the storyline.
My biggest complaint is how difficult it is to earn “free” tickets to unlock the chapters. The game says you can earn tickets by completing surveys, signing up for companies, and other things like that. When I completed a survey, a bunch of tabs opened on my phone. This had never happened before. Those sites are sus.
Another time, I didn’t even get my tickets. It makes sense that payment is required to unlock the full story. Work was put into the app so I understand. However, trying to get tickets is pointless. I would rather pay the $8.
As for whether I will pay the $8, I haven’t decided yet. So, I will turn it to the public. If you’ve read the full story, do you recommend purchasing it?
