Today I’m introducing a romance game called Jimi-Kare! Or My Quiet Boyfriend in English. This is a free to play app made by SEEC inc. In this game, you play as a main heroine that you can name whatever you want, and you help your old childhood friend named Nao, come out of his introverted shell and become a cooler and more relaxed guy. All while there’s a beauty competition coming up soon, that you and and Nao need to prepare for in hopes of winning.
This is just your standard clicker game. You just need to keep tapping a button to create motivational bubbles that will help to encourage Nao. It also gives you experience so that you can continue the story. Speaking of the story, MILD SPOILERS BELOW.
First things first. The most noticable thing right off the bat, is that the grammar in this story isn’t that great. But it’s not unbearable. You can play it just fine and understand everything that’s going perfectly. But it does distract from the story a little.
The story is pretty standard. It is an interesting one though. But to get to the next part of the story, you of course need to click away till your fingers fall off. The tapping for me got very boring, especially as I got closer to finishing the game. But the story was interesting enough to keep me from quitting. It takes a long time to reach on of the four endings and I’m not a patient person. To be completely honest, if you just keep tapping you could reach on of the endings in an hour in a half. Which might not be that long for some people, but it bored me. It took me two days to complete the entire game and get all endings and CGs.
The main characters are pretty much the only characters in the game, besides one “bad guy” named Ryota who bullies Nao everyday, and is basically your typical generic, narcissistic bully in this story. Ryota likes the MC, but is annoyed by Nao. Nao and main heroine are always together, so that creates conflict.
So the two main characters, Noa and MC are of course the best part of the story, and it’s fun to see where their relationship will end up. Now is an introvert who can either be “fixed” or “broken” By the choices of MC. And MC is extroverted and wants to rekindle her relationship with Nao.
There are two major parts of the story where you choose what you will do. The first ones are these two options:
This is where either your character, or Nao can pick his clothes for the beauty contest.
If you let Nao chose his clothes for himself, you’ll have to choose either of the two options on the left. If your character chooses for him, you’ll have to choose either of the two options on the right. There is one good ending and one bad ending for each set of options. So there are two good and bad endings overall.

There isn’t much to say about this game. It’s really fun, and is good time waster. In the game there are these things that will give you thirty experience points in you use it. Its a detox drink you give to Nao. There are also coins that will give you either 30 experience, 3 experience, or another detox drink. But one tip before I wrap-up is that it’s possible to get more of these by changing whatever day it might be to the next day. And to keep doing that because every time the game loads back up you will get one detox drink. More detox drinks equals more experience points.
So all in all, My Quiet Boyfriend is a fun game and good time waster.
