More English Otome Localizations - OperaHouse/Dogenzaka Lab

It seems that Dogenzaka Lab - who ported localized games such as Men of Yoshiwara, etc. - is bringing two more otomes to Steam: The Charming Empire and Campus Nightlife!

The Charming Empire 
(Teikoku Kaleido -Banka no Kakumei- / 帝國カレイド―万華の革命―)

Look! It's the MJS artist!! (Fuji Mitsuya)
Apparently this is some otome set in the Taisho era about a country girl being called to live in her brother's empire lol.

Steam Summary:
Our heroine, Amane Kosaka, was living a simple yet happy life in the countryside until one day she was suddenly taken away to live in the empire, summoned by her brother Soji Amazaki -- the current ruler. Though she was unaware of the underlying circumstances, she finds herself brought to this lively and palpable central city.
Living in the immaculate royal palace, our heroine comes to learn that the empire might not be as joyful as it seems. Her brother is no longer the gentle man she once knew... A corrupt organization secretly runs things behind the scenes... The heroine’s fate guides her down the path of love.

Kei Yoshimine (CV: Masuda Toshiki)
Koichiro Sera (CV: Eguchi Takuya)
Kagemitsu Togawa (CV: Toshiyuki Toyonaga)
Soji Amazaki (CV: Tsuda Kenjiro)

Considering the summary is so vague, I'm feeling kinda eh with it. I also normally wouldn't pay much attention to mobilege ports, but apparently they have full voice acting???? Which is kinda unusual for a mobile game. And not gonna lie, the seiyuu cast is mostly the reason I'm gonna keep an eye on this LOL

Campus Nightlife
Gakuen CLUB ~Houkago no Himitsu~ / 学園CLUB~放課後のヒミツ~

Art by Melo, who also drew Suuran Digit and Taisho x Alice

Steam Summary:
Our heroine is entering her junior year of high school when she finds out she will be suddenly transferring to the famous Kirika Academy located in the city due to her father's new job. She is quite excited about starting her new school life, but she stumbles upon a secret night club that is being operated after school hours, and gets herself roped into working the kitchen...
As she grows closer to the other waitstaff of the night club, she learns of their past, and finds herself becoming more and more involved in a complicated web of human relationships and romance...
Asahi Minakawa (CV: KENN)
Toma Sakai (CV: Ono Kensho)
Saku Tokizawa (CV: Toriumi Kousuke)
Wataru Kagurazaka (CV: Yonaga Tsubasa)
Renji Kamiki (CV: Umehara Yuichiro)
Yuya Yamaoka (CV: Ishii Mark) 
I've never heard of him but apparently he's half Filipino, ya boi

Again, a nice cast! Also again... a vague summary lol. Dogenzaka's 2 new localizations also seem to have the theme of the heroine moving someplace new www

Normally I'm a bit indifferent on school set otomes, but the secrets and human relationships parts sound interesting. Those aspects have potential, so I'm hoping it won't flop there.

Both will retail $29.99 (remember, there's voice acting) and will have a launch sale.
