Like Cross Infinite World’s other releases, the source material is a Japanese web novel. (In this case, a novel on Syosetsu.) It was written by Natsu, and featured illustrations by Shoyu.
The first ebook for Obsessions of an Otome Gamer is planned for release in early 2018.
Obsessions of an Otome Gamer Synopsis:
Rejected by her first crush, Mashiro finds herself hooked on an unbeatable music-themed otome game. Her high school days are spent learning the wonders of music, obsessively trying to claim the romance ending with the handsome 2D character who stole her broken heart. On the way home from her college entrance exams she gets distracted by a billboard for the game’s remake and unexpectedly falls down a manhole and plunges to her death!
Mashiro finds herself reincarnated in a world bearing similarities to the otome game she was obsessed with. Only this time, she has no idea how to avoid the twists and turns of certain character routes, including the bad endings! Now, as a seven-year-old, she decides to walk the path of a pianist to embrace the musical world to its fullest, but no matter where she turns, she just can’t seem to escape triggering events and getting involved with troublesome yet handsome characters!
I also found this tweet from Cross Infinite World’s account interesting:
The first three volumes will be the “common route” (or base storyline), while volumes 4 and 5 will each offer separate endings. All in all, it sounds like a more lighthearted series that fans of visual novels might enjoy.
