I’m going to be brutally honest here. This post isn’t only about pointing and laughing at what is probably one of the weirdest Idea Factory otome games out there. It’s about being delightfully ashamed of ourselves together. Because KLAP ~Kind Love and Punish~ has some of the strangest and most suggestive trailers, and I’m going to feel a whole lot better about myself if I know we all went down this dark road together.
KLAP ~Kind Love and Punish~‘s basis isn’t completely weird. It’s a combo of Vitamin X and Hiiro no Kakera, in a way. Koyomi graduated college and wants to be a teacher, but she can’t get any jobs. The only place that would take her is a school for youkai. She gets stuck teaching delinquents, which will earn her a good recommendation for a job at a real school if she succeeds.
Naturally, she falls in love along the way.
Even though part of her job involves the use of a mystical whip that is used to calm these wayward students down.
Yes. It’s that kind of game.
But I know you’re curious about KLAP ~Kind Love and Punish~. You’re here, aren’t you? Hell, I feel the same way. So let’s do this. We’ll watch all of the trailers together. (With the sound down, since these dudes make some really NSFW moans.)
We’ll start slow. Here’s the opening movie. It isn’t too “mature.” If I had to describe it in one word, it’d be “snappy.”
Now, this one you may want to start after the 35 second mark. It’s goal is to show off the main bachelors, Toma Mimasaka (Showtaro Morikubo), Sosuke Sho (Yuuki Kaji), Akito Suruga (Shinnosuke Tachibana), Camil Settselin (Ryohei Kimura) and Kanade Harima (Tomokaze Sugita). Each character appears in his human and “true” forms.
More recently, some videos that aren’t super creepy have been released and show what KLAP ~Kind Love and Punish~‘s gameplay is like. Spoilers: It’s a visual novel!
Now, this final trailer. This is… well.. You know Criminal Girls? It’s the equivalent to that. It’s not lewd, but is rather suggestive, so don’t watch this one in public.
Well, we certainly got through that together, didn’t we? KLAP ~Kind Love and Punish~ is available for the Vita in Japan right now. It’s safe to assume it will never, ever be released overseas, so go import a copy if you’re interested.
