First Impressions | ‘Butler Until Midnight’ (Voltage)

In a nutshell

The MC moves to Tokyo to start her dream job with top lifestyle magazine First Lady and unwittingly ends up leasing an apartment that comes with FIVE (hot!) butlers, who were sent by her very rich and powerful estranged father to help her finally become part of his life.

Team Butler:

[Proud, Charismatic, and Ruthless]


[A Dangerous Gentleman]


[The Harsh Traditionalist]


[The Quiet Guy Always at Your Service]


[The Flirty Genius]



First off, I will say that I have NEVER been a fan of the butler theme. (It’s just me, sorry.) I held out for SO LONG on getting this game. Thankfully, the butlers and their stories were written well enough that I forgot all about their being butlers!

The MC was sweet, brave, compassionate, and determined like every other MC in most of the Voltage/otoge universe, but (again, thankfully) she was not this ditzy, cloying personality like a lot of them are (especially in the older games). She was also smart and outspoken (only in her head part of the time ๐Ÿ˜‚), but without being borderline shallow B like the MC in Liar! Uncover the Truth.

All the butlers whose stories I’ve read so far (have only gotten through all the Season 1 stories, with the exception of Aoi — not really feeling him…) have been wonderful, difficult (makes it worth it? ๐Ÿ˜‚), exciting men with whom to fall in love. Each of them has this potentially off-putting flaw, but it is such a great relief to be able to help him redeem himself on the road to either your Seductive or Soothing End.

      Thanks for the follow, dearie!

      Give it another chance! There’s so much more to the guys and their stories than just ‘butler-hood’ ๐Ÿ˜

      Hope to hear back from you and find out that you’ve also fallen in love with them — in spite of their being butlers, haha!

        My pleasure, bb! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
        Gaaah, you’re slowly making me intrigued, stoooo it ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ /chihuahua sobs at you
        Butler-hood….i read that as virgin hood, I’m perverse 100% ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น
        Tbh I’ve been playing Mystic Messenger and SWD games like Destiny Ninja 2+, plus my backlog of pc and vita & psp games…. Rip me, i don’t know when I’ll get the โ‚ฌ for the sexy butlers, but when/if I buy I’ll definitely shucking the blame at you xPP

      2. Virgin-hood! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Noooo, don’t blame me! Haha.

        Started MM but I got too dizzy fr playing it so I stopped haha. Voltage’s Liar! is similar to it, just easier in terms of UI. Got tons of SWD too. Cybird’s MidCin and DTL are really good too, as well as OKKO’s Ofc Lover 2 and Rental Boyfriends.

        Been trying to ease off playing the ‘free’ (not really)/Party otoge coz it gets too crazy, esp when there are too many events going on at the same time. That’s why I started going back to paid games.

        You want all my virginities, don’tcha? x)
        I’ll super blame you for sure! /evil face
        I finished Liar! liar routes, but I didn’t like it after the guy I liked the most, in fact two, turned out to be liars. One a non-liar liar, and one a scumbag liar, ugh
        Ooh, MM made you dizzy? I’m a slow player, so I go slow and nice, so I take breaks between each route/dude. I also only play one free game at a time because I can’t keep up otherwise xDDDD
        I haven’t played any Okko, or Cybird, or DTL, yet. I’m a really, really slow gamer, RIP.
        Events are definitely there to reel in the $$, but I never participate, or very rarely really xD
        RIP, paid games end up getting on my backlog to finish in the far off future oops :””’D
        ^This is why I’m trying not to buy anything and just play and finish what I’ve started first, wish me luck! T_T

    1. I’m glad we share the same sentiments on this one, too! The thought of butlers give me the heebie-jeebies ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      The stories and characters are so much more than being/about butlers. Tomoki and Kyo are my Top 2 TBH ๐Ÿ’“ I don’t have any other reviews up, apart from Itsuki’s route, though, but there are lots of reviews on the butlers elsewhere ๐Ÿ˜

      1. Same here, can’t sched even though I’d like to. I’m a SAHM with a preschooler and a grade schooler so the most I can do is play this game or watch that drama, and cross everything I can cross that I have enough left in me to write about it, haha — which, more often than not, does NOT happen ๐Ÿ˜ข
