Gacha, Gacha, Gacha! | Current Events | Mobile Game Mondays #3

Welcome to ‘Current Events: Mobile Game Mondays’! Each Monday, we post an update on the currently available events for a selection of mobile otome games, including Tears of Themis and the Ikemen Series.

We let you know where to find the events, when they start and finish, what sort of rewards you can get, and how to play. If you have recommendations for titles you’d like included in Mobile Game Mondays, feel free to let us know!

This week is dominated by gacha events, whether they’re birthday celebrations, character debuts, or limited-time banners featuring exclusive cards, there’s plenty of gacha to choose from…

New Events

Tears of Themis

Vyn’s Birthday Preparations
Daily Task Event
Finishes: 23rd September (08:00 JST)

In the countdown to Vyn’s Birthday, Tears of Themis has released some daily event tasks to complete in exchange for rewards. The event only lasts for 3 days, so if you want any of the items on offer, you’ll need to be quick!

Event Features: There are several tasks available and they appear to have a daily time limit (this isn’t stated in the event description but the refresh timer indicates they’ll reset or change each day). Completing tasks awards Stellin and ‘Inspiration Points’ – these points accumulate with bonus rewards being unlocked at certain levels of Inspiration. These bonus rewards contain lots of useful card and skill upgrade items (specifically for Vyn cards), as well as a final prize of 200 S-Chips.

If you’re a Vyn fan, I recommend completing these tasks for the bonus rewards, as some of the skill upgrade items can be difficult to acquire outside of events. You can find the task list by clicking the ‘Events’ icon on the upper-left area of the home page (it looks like a white rabbit in a blue circle). The bonus rewards can be claimed by selecting the present icons on the bar above the task list.

Tip: Some of the tasks are similar to the daily tasks, so if you’re completing those on a regular basis anyway, you should be able to cross off the event tasks at the same time.

Ikémen Vampire

Vlad’s Story Sale
Story Sale
Finishes: 30th September (10:00 AM JST)

With the introduction of Act 2, Ikemen Vampire has released a story sale for one of the three new characters, Vlad. If you’re curious about this mysterious vampiric antagonist, you can get to know him better in this story sale debut!

Event Features: There’s only one sale option available this time – for 1,900 diamonds you receive a voiced story with Vlad and four pieces of attire: a background (Moonlight of Mystery) and the Forever Young Rose set, including a dress, hat, and shoes, which are all a deep red colour and fashioned in a classic Victorian style.

Vlad’s Card Debut
Gacha Event (Special)
Finishes: 30th September (10:00 AM JST)

Coinciding with Vlad’s Story Sale debut, Ikemen Vampire has also released a Special Gacha event to celebrate his card debut. Vlad’s first 5-Star card has been added, along with his avatar attire and a matching teddy bear, which all have boosted rates for a limited time.

Event Features: 1 x 5-Star card – Betrothed For All Time (Vlad), 1 x 4-Star Attire (Vlad’s Clothes), and 1 x 3-Star Avatar (Teddy Bear in Vlad’s Colour).

Haunted Halloween
Gacha Event (Premium)
Finishes: 31st October (10:00 AM JST)

Ikemen Vampire has also released the Premium Gacha Event, ‘Haunted Halloween’! For the event, new 5-Star cards of all 12 love interests are available, and each card comes with unique Halloween-themed animations.

Event Features: 12 x 5-Star Cards (one for each love interest).

Summer Festival Date
Gacha Event (Premium)
Finishes: 4th October (11:00 AM JST)

If Vlad’s card debut and the Halloween gacha events weren’t enough, then here’s another Premium Gacha to sink your diamonds into! Summer Festival Date features 3 x exclusive 5-Star cards of the boys in yukata, each featuring exclusive voiced lines.

Gacha Event (Eternal)
Finishes: 22nd September (10:00 AM JST)

Continuing the celebrations for Sebastian’s birthday, Ikemen Vampire are running an Eternal Gacha event with increased rates for Sebastian’s cards, including a new 4-Star card to commemorate his 3rd Birthday in the game!

Event Features: Rate-up for Sebastian’s cards + 1 x new 4-Star card – Another Year, Another Birthday (Sebastian). As this is an ‘Eternal’ gacha event, the new card will be added to the permanent card pool once the event is over.

Ikémen Revolution

Language of Flowers
Collection Event
Finishes: 26th September (06:00 PM PST)

Fittingly, Sirius Oswald, Queen of Hearts and expert gardener, is the poster boy for the new Ikemen Revolution Collection Event, ‘Language of Flowers’. Collect hearts by completing Destiny Duels and reading chapters, and then exchange them for rewards including exclusive flower-themed bonus stories, elegant violet-coloured attire, and many useful items.

Event Features: Most of the Sirius-themed rewards (including a card and bonus story) are early-clear rewards, but there are also 6 x bonus stories for other characters – The Allure of a Verbena (Loki), The Beautiful Queen of the Night (Oliver), Carnation of Love (Harr), The Soothing Petunia (Kyle), The Sublime Osmanthus (Lancelot), and A Bougainvillea’s Overflowing Charm (Ray).

You can also collect attire that follows an ‘elegant violet’ theme, including an ‘Elegant Afternoon Tea’ furniture set, ‘Blooming Royal Garden’ background, a ‘Violet Jacket & Turtleneck Outfit’ for him, and a ‘Gold Embroidered Royal Flower Gown’ for your player avatar.

Celebrate With Blanc
Gacha Event
Finishes: 28th September (06:00 PM PST)

Celebrate Cradle’s White Rabbit with temporarily boosted rates for Blanc’s cards, including special Birthday-themed cards! There are also multi-pick bonuses, which are rewards player’s receive for playing the gacha a certain number of times. You have a 50-50 chance of receiving one of the two rewards at 10 rolls, and you’ll receive the other reward at 20 pulls.

Event Features: Temporary rate-up for 2 x Blanc’s 4-Star cards in the ongoing collection, plus 4 x 5-Star Birthday cards (Blanc), and 2 x Multi-pick bonuses – the avatar item ‘Snowglobe Blanc Chibi’, and Blanc’s Birthday-themed bonus story, ‘The Best Present’.

Ongoing Events

Tears of Themis

Mysteries of the Lost Gold
Story, Collection, Minigames, Gacha, Log-in
Finishes: 27th September

Event Features: Unique event story, exploration mini-games, rewards for collecting event resources, log-in bonuses, and a new gacha banner, ‘For Hearts and Mysteries’.

Event Concept: Marius is hosting a treasure hunting event on his newly-acquired private island. The fictional island of ‘Nosta’ is currently uninhabited, but contains relics and ruins from an ancient civilization, as well as a more modern prison and the headquarters of a previous archaeological expedition.

Furthermore, there are rumours of hidden treasure from the legendary ‘Great Gold Heist’, which seems to have sparked a conspiracy amongst some of the treasure hunters, involving relics, murder, and betrayal…

Event Rewards: Due to the collection bonus aspect of this event, there are far too many rewards available to list. However, the major rewards include a new ‘invitation’ for the home page featuring the NXX team around a campfire, four new SSR cards and four R cards, all fitting the ‘treasure hunt’ theme, and plenty of card upgrade items, energy drinks, and the event-type Tears of Themis (Pursuit).

Ikémen Prince

To Wield My Sword
Gacha Event
Finishes: 30th September (9:59 AM JST)

Event Features: A limited-time, sword-themed, gacha banner with three event-exclusive cards. These cards won’t be available in the permanent card pool, so you’ll need to roll for them in this event for a chance to get them!

Event Rewards: There are three cards exclusively available in this event, but other cards from the permanent collection are still available in this gacha banner, so rolling doesn’t guarantee one of the event cards.

The 3-Star card is of Luke Randolph, the 4-Star card is of Licht Klein, and the 5-Star card is of Chevalier Michel. The higher the rarity, the lower your chance of getting the card, however the 4 and 5-Star cards come with voiced lines and more dramatic art.

Yves’ Birthday: Year 1
Story Sale (Birthday)
Finishes: 30th September (9:59 AM JST)

Event Features: Celebrate Yves by purchasing one of the available ‘Birthday Sets’ from the Ikemen Prince in-game store. As the game was only released recently, this is the first time players are able to celebrate Yves’ birthday!

Event Rewards: There are three sets available; Premium, Deluxe, and Mini. The Mini set contains the exclusive birthday story, photo, and 3-Star card, all titled ‘Let Me Love You’, as well as a ‘BDay Ribbon’ for your avatar.

The Deluxe set contains the same photo and card, but the story is from Yves’ POV, rather than MC’s. It also contains the same attire, as well as a ‘BDay Dress’.

The Premium set contains everything from the other two sets (including the story from both perspectives), plus the 5-Star ‘Bday Year 1 Yves’, which, judging from the preview, seems to be a chibi Yves with a cake for decorating your room.

Starry Night Avatar Gacha
Gacha Event
Finishes: 30th September

Event Features: For a limited time, roll on Ikemen Prince’s ‘Starry Night’ gacha to collect exclusive avatar attire.

Event Themes: The rewards are coloured in a mix of deep, dreamy blues and royal purples, scattered with golden stars, moons, and other whimsical elements.

Event Rewards: There are four 5-Star items, six 4-Star items, and eight 3-Star items available. The sample image seems to showcase half of the available rewards, with the other half being the same items but in purple, rather than blue.

Leon’s Birthday: Year 1
Story Sale (Birthday)
Finishes: 30th September

Event Features: The Ikemen Series games often release exclusive stories for sale to celebrate the boys’ birthdays. Currently, players can purchase Leon’s Birthday Story: Year 1, which is the first birthday story sale to take place in Ikemen Prince.

The game developers have noted that the story contains major spoilers for his route, so you may wish to save it until you’ve completed Leon’s main story!

Note: There are a few different packages available with a range of different bonuses, so it’s worth checking the options carefully before buying any of them.

Ikémen Sengoku

Boyfriend Gacha: Classical Collection
Gacha Event
Finishes: 29th September

Event Features: Collect new themes for ‘His Room’ and other rewards from classic events in the new Ikemen Sengoku gacha event, ‘Boyfriend Gacha: Classical Collection’!

Event Rewards: The rewards in this gacha all seem to have been taken from previous events, so it’s a good chance to try and get that prize you wanted!

Note: This ‘Boyfriend Gacha’ uses gacha orbs, which are only very occasionally given to players for free, so you’ll likely need to purchase them if you intend to try your luck in this event. There are discounted sets available, so make sure you check these out before spending anything, just in case there’s a better deal!

Masamune’s Birthday: Shape of Love
Story Sale (Birthday)
Finishes: 30th September

Event Features: Purchase a new Birthday story with Date Masamune, written from his point of view, in a special bundle including a voice clip, ‘His Room’ theme, letter, and castle avatar items!

Stories purchased during story sales are permanently saved to your collection, so you can still read them after the event ends.

Note: You can also purchase Masamune’s birthday sets from previous years, all the way back to his birthday story from 2017!

Ikémen Vampire

Moonlit Remembrance: Premium Gacha
Gacha Event
Finishes: 27th September

Event Features: The popular ‘Moonlit Remembrance’ premium gacha is back! There are twelve 5-Star cards available, each featuring one of the vampires in an ethereal, night-time scene.

Note: Premium gacha events feature cards that aren’t added to the permanent gacha after the event ends, so be sure to roll for them now!

Sebastian’s Birthday: Drowning in Desire
Story Sale (Birthday)
Finishes: 30th September

Event Features: There are a total of six sets available this year for Sebastian’s birthday; one mini and one deluxe set for Episodes I-III, each released as a birthday sale consecutively for the past three years.

Event Rewards: The mini sets include a birthday story, exclusive photo, and two items of attire. The deluxe sets feature the same photo, but the story is noted as being from his POV, rather than MC. There are also four items of attire in the deluxe sets, but the two items in the mini sets are not included in the deluxe set.

Ikémen Revolution

Suited Pair Match VI
Gacha Event
Finishes: 30th September (6 PM PST)

Event Features: Collect cards featuring not one but two ikemen in the Suited Pair gacha series. Three new cards (with new pairings!) have been introduced, and previous Suited Pair cards have been brought back for a limited time.

Event Themes: Other than the fact that two characters are featured in the art, there isn’t any particular theme linking the cards together. Some are battle scenes, other cute moments in day-to-day life, and other steamier cards feature the Ikemen Revolution cast in the bath.

Event Rewards: The three new cards feature Edgar and Luka, Sirius and Ray, and Jonah and Lancelot. There are eleven 5-Star cards returning, and six 4-Star cards available as well. There are also multi-pick bonuses at 10, 20, and 30 pulls, with no duplicates, meaning that by 30 pulls you will have received all three of the multi-pick bonuses (saved stories that relate to each of the three new cards).

Most events last for at least 7 days, so some of them will be featured in multiple Mobile Game Mondays posts. Below is a list of all the events that are still ongoing since our last post. If we’ve published an event review and linked it in one of the entries below, the name of the event will be underlined, so you can click it for more information!
