The Mysterious Ayakashi and the Sweets Shops: A Love Story is a romance game for women. The game plays like reading a novel. You continue to read the story, you make choices, and simply enjoy a romantic relationship with a great male character of your choosing.
Welcome to the Spirit World, a town under the supervision of the nine-tailed fox spirit Tsukumo.
As our heroine, you wandered into the Spirit World as a ghost roughly one year ago. Without any recollection of how you died, or what your unfinished business may be, you are left unable to pass on.
When you were alive, you were the heir to your family’s long-established traditional Japanese confectionary business. But now, with Tsukumo’s assistance, you’ve opened up your own sweets shop as your pass your time in the Spirit World. Set free from the strict disciplines forced upon you as heir to your family business, you are able to remember the joy you attain from making sweets as you spend colorful, entertaining days in the Spirit World. You start to think that maybe you will continue living on like this until you become an Ayakashi, the spirits who inhabit this world...
A nine-tailed fox.
Tsukumo is the animated overseer of the Spirit World, honored and respected by all who live in town. Though he is always trying to skip out on work, deep down Tsukumo is of a very serious nature. He even has a lonely side to him. In true Ayakashi-fashion, he displays unabashed gluttony for that which he desires, but he also possesses a gentle soul.
He loves the sweets made by our heroine.
"Mmm, it’s delicious! Your confections are the best in the world!"
An ogre. Tsukumo's old friend.
Akatsuki is a regular at our heroine’s sweets shop. While he may possess great strength, Akatsuki suffers from an inferiority complex as he is only half-Ayakashi. To compensate for this, he is tenacious about improving his strength.
Our heroine seems to have caught his eye in a way no other has done.
"Don’t touch me. You shouldn't be anywhere near me."
A snow man acting as Tsukumo’s aide.
Yuki is always chasing after Tsukumo with a stern hand, dragging him back to work when he goofs off. With a gentle, kind personality, he is an older brother of sorts to our heroine.
"I'll always be there as your brother."
A Nekomata cat spirit who is considered young amongst the other Ayakashi.
Mike owns and operates his own bakery, the Cat Cakery, next to our heroine’s shop. Depending on how you look at him, you might think he’s either simply straightforward, or a little naive. Mike loves to compete with our heroine over who can rake in the most sales.
"Hey! I came to see how empty your shop was today!"
A ghost who works as a popular waiter at Cat Cakery.
His almost frustratingly charming personality is tough to put a finger on, making him popular with the women, who he treats oh-so favorably. Haruto takes a liking to our heroine for some reason, and enjoys leading her on, only to revel in her embarrassment. It seems that Haruto has been living in the Spirit World before our heroine’s arrival, but it is unclear why he has become a ghost.
"We're both already dead, so our lives are over...but I believe we can still find happiness in the future."

Ratings and Reviews
Finally a real ios otome game - highly recommend
I never write reviews but I wanted to sincerely thank the game developers for this beautiful masterpiece .
I play otome games on PSP and PSV . Every ios game that I’ve tried has let me down
They make you wait every day for only a very short story process and you have to pay to get the premium stories
And the plot is the same thing over and over again . You’re someone so important all of a sudden and have to make a choice etc.
Instead in this game you make one purchase and enjoy the full experience at a very fair price. There are so many CGs There aren’t even this many on a lot of PSP and PSV games ! And the art is mesmerizing and absolutely beautiful .
I like how BGM sounds uplifting and yet has a melancholic tone to it. Fits the game perfectly .
The story itself is really unique and the city gives me Spirited Away vibes somehow
The story is very well written and the flashbacks will leave you astonished .
Character development is absolutely amazing and I like the fact that there’s a dark side to all of them even the heroine .
I love how satisfied I felt with the endings and yet felt a little void inside of me .
Just as how the heroine would feel . This shows the writing skills of the plot .
And I also like the feature with which I can update my Kanji knowledge .
I only wished there were CVs too.
I look forward to your next works
Good game, but...
I'm a sucker for these types of stories. Plot is very nice. Artwork and background illustrations are also, beautiful. There are no voice acting. Just wish you can get a free ep each day, but I guess that's not the case here. Gotta purchase route in order to continue. It's a lil disappointing that I can't continue. It's really a nice game. No dolling up avatar/ grinding bull crap like other otome games here. Please consider giving free episodes daily. Best regards!
it was okay? except for one route
i admit that i was drawn to the plot, and decided to buy mike's route -- which was a bit weird for me, especially at some parts (goes along the whole 'you're my owner' [because he's a cat] plot thing, and it kinda made me uncomfortable?).. they also made a conflict in the story of the mc being connected to a shrine and her memories? but doesn't really give a solution regarding it in the route... so it was kinda just forgotten about.. however, overall mike's wasn't anything TOO weird, and some parts even being cute.
[spoilers] then i bought tsukumo's. not only did they use the exact same lines/parts from mike's route (and i'm guessing the others), i was actually quite excited for this route but QUICKLY FURIOUS that i bought it! he KEEPS HER HOSTAGE IN HIS HOUSE, AND STARTS TO BECOME POSSESIVE OF HER! it really just made me dislike his character/ ruin the whole route. they try to play it off like he just "loves her so much!" but it's obvious that he basically manipulates her into staying with him. in the end, he kinda just manipulates the mc into not going back to the human world -- basically giving up the life that she had -- and living in their world, just to be with him, because she wasn't dead in the first place. and that's really.... messed up? idk the fact that it was a big part of the plot -- tsukumo revealing that he KNEW that she wasn't dead, trapping her a room for like 3 days and then saying it was because he loves her made me start to regret that i even bought the route.
