Tokumori Quiz rero-rero


This is a quiz game included with Alice's Cottage 3.


You follow Kotobuki Hitoshi as he is having some troubles. He walks the same route as a girl he likes, but he doesn't know how to approach her normally. As he thinks all hope seems lost, a goddess appears and decides to help him.

The catch? Quizzes! For some reason the goddess makes you do unrelated quizzes and then she shows you 18+ scenes to get a better understanding of relationships. She also gives some normal advice along the way.



It is a quiz game, so all you really do is quizzes. The rewards are H-scenes. In the post game you can get 5 other CGs from the mystery man, after this you start receiving extra candy.

During the game you get to pick a category and try to get 100 points. If you run out of life, a piece of candy can revive you. You can also use a piece of candy to revive a previously finished genre.

You might run into the mystery man at times, his questions make no sense. I don't think the answers matter, so they are not noted down.

I went for about 50 questions in a row without a new question, so this should cover most of the questions. It will be shown with the Japanese question, English interpretation and English answers.
The numbers can be swapped around, something I found out later. The numbers correspond to the answers in the walkthrough specifically.

Questions/answers should be mostly translated unless it is kanji/name reading.
