Ltd is the latest company to consolidate all their stories into one app. If you hate looking at otome walkthroughs and just want to read on the go, Love stories & Otome Games or L.O.G is the app for you. The choices you make have no consequences whatsoever as you get to read both bad and happy endings. Currently, the app only has Dateless Love and Princess Closet available in English.

Like all other Ciagram stories, players can read up to five tickets a day and an extra two by collecting Heart Fragments via Video Ads. Obtain three Heart Fragments to turn it into a Heart. To read side stories in-game, Side Story tickets are needed. Side Story tickets can be purchased with money.
