If you have got a thing from problematic men, we would highly advise staying away from Variable Barricade. If you have already fallen into the rabbit hole, however, might as well just enjoy the dive. You know what they say, if you can get out of it, get into it. In this dating sim, you will be playing as Hibari, a rich girl living under the same roof with four undesirable marriage candidates.

One of these four pretty but flawed fellows is Taiga Iusurugi, a free-spirit who hates conforming to standards and believes in the concept of being himself. If you want to pursue this bohemian bad boy as a love interest, you might want to follow this guide.

From now on, look out for chapters with green backgrounds to know when to save. You should make the following saves:
