Shiravune Released Queen of the Otaku: THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE on Johren and Steam

On the 18th of July 2023, the Tokyo-based publisher Shiravune released another Appetite nukige with Queen of the Otaku: THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. It’s a raunchy nukige focusing on the two heroines, Himeki Ai and Hanasaki Mahiro, competing to be the most popular among the otaku crowd in their school. The game supports English and Chinese and will be available cut on Steam and uncensored on Johren, both for $14.99 with 20% launch discounts.

Appetite are known for their short nukige centered around particular archetypes and their unusually high frequency of releases. The game originally released on the 5th June 2020 in Japan titled Otacir no Hime wa Watashi nan Dakara! ~Ano Ko, Doutei Minna de Kowashichae~. Shiravune announced its localization back on the 18th of May 2023 via Twitter.


My name is Hajime Namikawa.I’m just your everyday university student, and I belong to the Manga Club, which—you guessed it—is really just the nerd club.

There’s one beautiful rose among our motley crew: Ai Himeki, who always has a smile and a kind word for any of us.
She keeps the atmosphere warm and friendly, making the club the nice place that it is.

This year, though, we’ve got a new first-year member: Mahiro Hanasaki.
She joined our club for some reason, even though she’s cool and popular-looking.
Everybody is starting to love her already, since she seems so interested and doesn’t look down on us.

Can you guess what the problem is?

Original Steam description


A college junior, in the same year as the protagonist, and also a popular cosplayer.

She’s always been a pleasant presence at the heart of the club, but Mahiro Hanasaki hasn’t been treating her well…

A college freshman who doesn’t back down. She’s also good at sucking up to her seniors, and she knows how much the nerds of the club go for her petite figure.

Loves to be fussed over as the center of attention.


  • A short visual novel about a club divided
  • Three possible endings
  • Professional Japanese voice acting
