More than a decade after the visual novel was first released in the Japanese market, Jast USA have given their fans a Christmas treat by publishing Minato Soft’s Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! on the PC. Also known as Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!! or 真剣で私に恋しなさい! in Japan, the game will be available as both its original 18+ adults-only release (decensored to boot) and a more all-ages friendly version (the latter at a later date in early-2021). Availability will depend on the platform you wish to purchase it from.
The 18+ version of Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! can be purchased through JAST USA’s website, for a limited time at a discounted price of $35.99 USD (10% off). Alternatively, those who want to forgo the adult content can purchase it through Steam in early 2021.
JAST USA’s partner store J-List is still accepting pre-orders for the limited “Collector’s Edition” physical release, to also be made available in early 2021. People who pre-ordered this edition (or buy it after its release) will get an email with a JAST USA Store code for Majikoi! so they can play the game right away. This edition will also include a Steam code inside the box.

The Storyline of Majikoi! Love Me Seriously!
At first glance, Kawakami City may look like any other normal Tokyo commuter town, with its bustling train station and gentrified neighborhoods. However, it’s a place where your samurai lineage determines your social status, friends, and future.
This is the home of Yamato and his six friends. They’ve had many adventures together over the years, and even created a “secret base” where they could hang out, safe from the troubles of the world. Although they’ve known each other since childhood that doesn’t mean they were always friends, nor does it mean that they are similar. Far from it. But despite their differences (or perhaps because of their differences), they are as close as edamame in a pod.
All seven of them attend Kawakami Academy, a unique and prestigious institution where martial arts are integrated into its values and conflict-resolution system. Its principal is also the headmaster at Kawakami Temple, where the world’s greatest martial artists come to train and test their strength. Yamato and his friends learn not only facts and figures, but teamwork and the meaning of the samurai spirit.
This year two new members will join Yamato and his circle of friends, creating new conflict, drama, and perhaps even romance.
