So few years ago JP wrote an article about the hubbub over Rapelay. It was some stupid eroge where the player rapes women but then gets hit by a train or stabbed to death in return (so not like justice wasn’t served!) Recently though, a BL game came out called Hadaka Shitsuji – aka Naked Butler. In my eyes, based on reading both the gameplot for Rapelay & following a friend’s game progress, Hadaka Shitsuji is a million times worse.
First off, Hadaka Shitsuji is just listed as a “BL Game” where the male protagonist goes to become the “master” in a house of 5 butlers. That’s all that you know to it – until you play the game. I’m not touching this vile sack of shit with a 40 foot pole but my BL gamer friend’s been posting her progress on twitter and the more I read the worse it gets.
The main protagonist, Maeda Tomoaki is a fucking piece of shit who claims he’s NO HOMO but proceeds to not only rape every single butler in that house, but with things other than his wang. This includes people having flowers, tree roots, brooms and from what I heard, animals, being shoved up people’s butts. In addition of course to every single character being humiliated and then killed by having the protagonist shove their head under water and drown them. Oh did I mention that if you don’t actually rape/abuse the characters, you get a bad end for “doing nothing” ? It’s not even done in like some “kinky” way either. Tomo is WELL AWARE that he’s an abusive asshole and he gets pleasure from watching all the men in this game suffer. Despite being a BL game, he also forces one of his butlers to then have sex with one of his female stalkers or something. For reasons unknown, EVERYONE COMPLIES with what he does. Yes that’s right they pay him to be in this house, and abuse the fuck out of them instead of kicking him out and getting someone with a sense of decency in their heads. It’s so bad to the point where plain old buttsecks feels NORMAL in comparison to all the other crap that goes on in the game.
But hey look nobody cares. Because it’s not marketed as a “hey lets rape and abuse men” game, nobody gives a shit even though in my eyes what happens in Hadaka Shitsuji is absolutely revolting. I mean BL games are targetting women right? What woman in their right mind would want to “control” someone who constantly abuses the men you’re supposed to get with? I don’t know how BL games work but even in some of the really trashy otome games I’ve played I don’t think I’ve ever even come close to this kind of garbage scenario.
From what I heard the creator was originally an eroge maker so I can only imagine him wanting to make a rape game, but instead of women, using men because he could get away with it a lot more easily. Cause let’s face it, if these were women put in these situations, you’d have the same Rapelay hubbub all over again.
