Visual Novel: My Girlfriend Is the President aka: My Girl Friend Is The President
My Girlfriend Is The President (Japanese title: Osananajimi wa Daitouryou, more accurately "My Childhood Friend is the President") is an eroge by the company Alcot.What happens when a loli-alien-maid crashes her ship into the earth, eliminating Japan's government? Hilarity Ensues, of course. The entire world is brainwashed into believing the first girl on the scene is the Japanese president, with only two people in the world who remember how it used to be.Junichiro Hondo, teenage pervert, is the new vice president and one of those who remember the old ways. His childhood friend Yukino Ohama, who isn't named after the American President Obama AT ALL, is the new President of the United States of Nippon and quickly develops a fanbase. The rest of the cast includes a female not-Rahm Emanuel, a gender-flipped version of Vladimir Putin, a personified spaceship and the aforementioned loli-alien-maid.A trailer can be found here. JAST USA (link Not Safe for Work) localized the game, using most if not all of TLWiki's unfinished Fan Translation.Also, a fandisc was released on August 13, 2010, featuring epilogues of Irina's and Ell's routes. The translation came out in July of 2014.
My Girlfriend Is The President provides examples of:
A-Cup Angst - Kuon is very sensitive about her small bust size.
Aliens Made Them Do It: Subverted in the fandisc. Qoo pretends she's giving Jun some medicine for his cold, but he actually didn't have one. She just made him drink an aphrodisiac before. She says it's because I Want Grandkids and he's been trying to avoid getting Ell pregnant, but Ell is too exhausted to continue before long and Qoo has to step in. The subversion comes in when it turns out she really just wanted to sleep with him and made up a plausible sounding excuse that Ell would accept.
Qoo Little-Little: "I am Qoo Little-Little, the most intelligent being in the universe! "Impossible" doesn't exist in my electronic dictionary! The entire galaxy will eventually be mine!"
Bait and Switch - The hot spring scene in Yukino's begins by building up as an H-scene complete with seeing Yukino naked and one of the the H-scene bgms playing. Then Jun loses control and we learn that Yukino isn't going to get over her phallophobia that easily. In the end an otherwise intimate moment is rapidly and unexpectedly switched out to comedy almost instantly.
Become a Real Boy - One of the central themes of Ell's route. In the end, she succeeds and, with help from Qoo and Remi, reincarnates as an actual human after her Heroic Sacrifice.
Putina doesn't appreciate being called "Puchin". At the end of her route, she manages to get used to that nickname.
Do not utter the word "flat" when Kuon or Remi is nearby.
Betty and Veronica - The sweet ditzy childhood friend Yukino and the extremely famous, beautiful, tsundere badass Putina respectively.
Big Damn Heroes - Morita in Yukino's ending, using the "Go Iron Man" suit to dive-bomb Remi's brainwashing gun and disabling the barrier surrounding the school in the process. A reckless plan, though he's sure he won't die, because his cute wife is waiting for him back home. In one of his eroges.
Junichiro: Wait! You're pointlessly setting up too many mortality flags!
Bland-Name Product - Giant X. Makes whatever is injected with it turn giant. Also NYAmazon.
"Onee-san didn't raise you to be that way!" You raised Jun to be this way and you know it!
In Irina's fandisc epilogue Yukino won't give them five minutes of privacy, so when she has to leave the house to get her stuff and then rushes back home she finds them "busy" in the bathroom. They continue even when they know she's there and when the come out they both swear they were practicing pro wrestling.
Bullying a Dragon: There are three dumb girls in Jun's class that try to bully Irina when she transfers in for being a foreigner and very popular. Contrary to their expectations, Irina is highly amused. Even apart from having electricity powers, she’s known to be a martial artist and very aggressive plus has her own secret police. The very next scene is the three girls begging for mercy.
Buxom Is Better - A lot of Junichiro's attention is devoted to Putina and Ran's breasts. And on the opposite side of things he denies being a lolicon. He will point out though that he appreciated the existence of breasts themselves rather than any one size.
Cain and Abel - Remi is very jealous of Ell because Remi accidentally disappeared during a test flight and was found by Souma while Ell was raised properly by Qoo (as properly as Qoo is capable of, anyway). This tends to result in spaceships capable of destroying planets canceling each other's power out and pulling each other's cheek.
Cannot Handle Her Liquor: Qoo gets drunk really easily. Apparently, her aphrodisiac also works like alcohol, meaning when she swallows a little when giving it to Ell it affects her quite quickly.
Childhood Friend Romance - Ran and Yukino, though it's only Yukino who really plays it up. She comes to Junichiro's house to wake him up in the morning, voluntarily does his household chores, cooks for him (albeit badly), and is otherwise totally devoted to him. Even though she's the president of Japan. Though on Junichiro's side of things, at the beginning of the game it's revealed that he actually confessed to Ran once and got turned down.
Charm Person - The brainwashing effect of Qoo's device makes Yukino much more persuasive than she would be otherwise. When she sings, it gets upgraded to full-on Compelling Voice.
Clingy Jealous Girl - The only thing that can make Yukino really angry is somebody taking Junichiro away from her. At one point she bans exports of Junichiro to prevent Putina from taking him to Russia. To her credit she doesn't interrupt any truly intimate moments between Junichiro and Putina even when she's right there, and still maintains a friendship with her love rival.
On the other hand, she does everything in her power to try to keep Ran off of him starting from the very first scene of Ran's route.
In Irina's epilogue, Jun's parents are annoyed that he didn't start going out with Irina and give Yukino permission to move in and says Jun has to decide a second time who he wants to go out with. She proceeds to get in the way at every opportunity. In particular, she won’t go home, so there goes Irina and Jun’s sex life.
Coitus Uninterruptus: Irritated at Yukino for always ruining the mood, Irina and Jun begin going at it in the only room in the house with a lock, the bathroom. When Yukino gets home, they ignore the fact that she’s right outside the door telling them to knock it off. Happens again on the school roof, though this time they're lucky it was Yukino rather than anyone else.
Comically Missing the Point - When speaking with Miyoshi Ran's father, he mentions that their hypothetical children could become the pawn of warring factions. Their immediate reaction is to be thrilled to hear they can have children at all.
Dead Person Impersonation - The Ran that Jun knew as a child died shortly after moving away, and the Ran that came back nine years before the story began was an alien that revived her body and merged with it, and then fell in love with him just like the real Ran did. It's gotten to the point that they've essentially fused with Ran unable to tell whose memories belong to whom anymore.
Dirty Old Man - Souma. His main reason for doing the things he does is his desire for female... attention. In Yukino's route, he even tries to take over the whole world so he can gather the world's most beautiful women in his harem and make out with them every day.
Does This Remind You of Anything? - Junichiro's so-called "Raper Blade", a pale light extending from his crotch turning into a humongous blade which he uses to assault Terminachan.
Terminachan:(*flustered*) I-Impossible... It's so big...
Junichiro: Don't worry. It only hurts in the beginning! You'll start to feel good immediately!!
Dogged Nice Guy: Yukino moves into Jun's house to try to make him dump Irina and pick her. Well, that's probably the more unpleasant side of the trope. At least she doesn't do any sabotage more direct than interrupting their intimacy.
Irina Vladimirovna Putina is a famous, beautiful, strong-willed tsundere who can generate electricity and kick ass on her own, even has a lesbian associate who has a not-so-covert crush on her. Hence, she is an older version of Misaka Mikoto.
Yukino resembles Kaede a lot. She learns to cook from a senpai who is also in love with the protagonist, has the same hair colour (but not the same eye colour), is the Childhood Friend of the protagonist, wakes the protagonist up in the morning before the game actually starts, etc. If her hair were a bit shorter and didn't have an ahoge and she had blue eyes, she could even pass off for Kaede!
Genre Savvy: Irina’s transfer into Jun’s class is seen coming a mile away because it always happens in eroge. Her instant attachment to Jun actually pleases the class at first since while it's annoying that he's getting more fans, it means Yukino is now free... except then she says she hasn't given up, so everyone beats Jun up.
Gonzo Journalism: Yukino refuses to express support for national policies she disagrees with and the news people are so incompetent that they begin yelling at her for it. People nearby are impressed with her, though, and she indicates near the end that she intends to start a political career, oblivious to the fact that she was president once already.
G-Rated Sex - The entire hug scene with Putina and Ell.
Graceful Loser - Irina, when Junichiro tells her in Yukino's route that he won't be going with her to Russia because he's in love with Yukino. She's disappointed, of course, but she also pushes him to confess to Yukino as quickly as possible and she thanks him for being her first love, whilst expressing the wish to remain friends.
Heel-Face Turn - Saionji, Ran and Kuon, though you don't always learn that Ran is on the other side anyway.
Heroic BSOD - Yukino undergoes a brief one when she finds out about the mass brainwashing.
Heroic Resolve - In the finale of Yukino's route, Junichiro's Super Mode proves to be no match against Souma's powers. He's about to pass out, battered and broken, until he hears Yukino's voice and the song all their allies are singing for them outside. This gives him the power to defeat Souma for real.
Junichiro: Heh. I can obtain as much power as I want. As long as Yukino is with me!!
Historical Hero Upgrade: American bases are in Japan. Why? Totally not because of anything like Japanese war crimes in World War II, no sirree, it’s because of events in ‘Gorea.’ That said, it’s still pointed out that the base is there for Japan’s own protection, so they don't actually vilify America at all in the process.
Human Alien - It's noted briefly that not all aliens look like humans. Rather, Qoo was specifically chosen because she looks human.
Idiot Ball - Jun entered at least one situation where he could've been able to safely release his alien power but opted for a more dangerous alternative.
Immortal Immaturity - All over the place. Ell, Remi, Souma and possibly Ran and Kuon when fridge logic sets in about the length of the assignments undertaken. The closest thing to an aversion is probably Qoo, who talks like a dirty old woman and acts like a lazy bum. You could argue that she really is acting her age and is simply a hedonist.
Improbable Age - Justified for Yukino, but not for Irina. Irina herself even lampshades this at one point.
Lethal Chef - Yukino's food has to be censored by mosaic and is accompanied by X-Files music. Apparently the problem isn’t that she doesn’t know what she's doing, but that when she’s mostly done she does something absurd and ruins it all.
Licking the Blade - At one point, Terminachan seductively licks the tip of the fruit knife she just used to cut Junichiro's cheek.
Lolicon - Junichiro denies being one when asked on one occasion.
Lonely Rich Kid - While being a world leader isn't exactly equivalent to being wealthy, being the president of Russia at such a young age hasn't given Putina a chance to make many friends or have much fun.
Loveable Sex Maniac - Junichiro is first introduced fondling an assistant. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
Love-Obstructing Parents: Jun's parents don't like that he picked Irina over Yukino. His mom wants to veto the relationship altogether while his dad compromises and says that he has to have Yukino leave with the two of them for a few months and then at the end pick between them.
Though there are four heroines, the story largely focuses on the Putina/Yukino/Junichiro triangle and both girls recognize the other as their rival. Before the story started, there was also Yukino -> Junichiro -> Ran, but it goes largely unmentioned. In Irina's afterstory, she's already won, but his parents make him pick again.
In Ell's afterstory, there's another one with Remi going tsundere for Jun. Qoo is also interested now. After a sex scene, though, the status quo appears to be maintained as is.
Making Love in All the Wrong Places: Irritated with Yukino insisting on getting in the way, Irina and Jun hop into the bathroom and get going even though they know she’s only going to be gone for a few minutes. They don’t stop when she returns, either.
When asked by Irina how he wants to resolve the triangle with Yukino after he's already dating her, he says it'll hurt but he'll pick her over Yukino without question. When pushed for what he actually wants, he hesitantly admits that he’d actually prefer for all three of them to stay together somehow. She thinks that’s the best idea as well, so they wait to see if Yukino will try it.
Ell's afterstory looks like it's going the same route at first as well with Qoo and Remi both falling for Jun, but Ell is more jealous than Irina and after a sex scene with the two of them makes him promise not to do it again.
Moe - In-Universe: Yukino has an 80% approval rating because she's so moe. The other girls are too, but Yukino actually harnesses her moe-ness to help her lead Japan.
Mundane Made Awesome - Peeping on girls changing or in the hot springs involves epic confrontations with a Ninja Maid, units of special forces soldiers, rousing speeches, and death traps. Kind of justified given that Junichiro is peeping on world leaders who'd need special security 24/7.
Also, any time anybody eats anything.
Murder Is the Best Solution - The Hot Springs Task Force seems to think so. A student standing in their way while the president tries to pass through?
Nipponese Soldier A:BOY, you seem to have quite the guts. But this is our job. Die now for the sake of our president!
Naked Apron - Ran, much to Jun's utter delight. Then they realize Ell is in the room watching.
New Transfer Student: Upon returning to school in Irina's afterstory, both Yukino and Jun just know that Irina is going to transfer into their class. She does.
Ninja Maid - Kuon doesn't utilize martial arts, but she is more often shown performing acts of violence than she is shown doing anything, y'know, maids usually do.
No Celebrities Were Harmed - As applied to countries. Rusia, Ameriga, Nippon and Chaiwan. There's also the obvious genderflipped tsundere Vladimir Putin stuff.
Not Brainwashed - A more lighthearted example since this story doesn't do dark. Turns out that Ran and Kuon faked being brainwashed so as to continue spying.
The Not-Love Interest - Qoo Little-Little. She kick-starts the plot, she immediately starts teasing Junichiro the moment she abducts him and she shows up through the entire game. Despite that, she hasn't got her own route. Which is probably why she does have a sex scene in the fandisc.
Oblivious to Love - Averted. Junichiro acknowledges pretty early on that he knows how Yukino feels but simply doesn't feel like a relationship upgrade. On the other hand, the girls seem to think he doesn't know.
Obviously Evil - Odds are pretty strongly against a guy named Josef Souma Mengele being a good guy. Junichiro and his classmates even agree that he looks like a demon king.
Occidental Otaku - Russia's "western-ness" might be debatable, but Putina clearly has shades of this.
Only Sane Man - Junichiro is literally the only sane man in that he's the only man on Earth to remember what things were like before the aliens brainwashed everybody. Putina on the other hand is the only sane woman by this standard.
Otaku Surrogate - Even though Junichiro and especially Morita usually would be enough otaku for one game, Yukino watches anime, and reads manga and doujinshi (including the hentai sort, amusingly). She ends up as one of these in-universe too when she becomes a hero to otakus for opposing a bill to ban doujinshi.
Parental Marriage Veto: Jun's mom insists that he dates Yukino instead after he hooks up with Irina even though the two consider themselves all but married at this point. His dad manages to make it into a compromise where Jun will just have to pick between them again in a few months.
Plot Armor - In Putina's route, Junichiro briefly wonders if his status as the protagonist will save him if he goes out to deal with Remi on his own. Moments later he also resists tempting fate by refusing to note no one has been melted yet.
Polyamory: Irina forces Jun to admit that he’d prefer to have both her and Yukino and Irina agrees since she loves Yukino too. And not just as a friend. The three of them are irked that polygamy is currently illegal, which acts as the final straw for Yukino to enter a political career. Change the law if you don't like it!
Porn Stash: Jun's is discovered, but he manages to turn it around by convincing the girls that they’re Covert Perverts and no better. The porn is just confiscated instead.
Power Glows - "What's wrong Jun-kun!? You're emanating a pointless golden aura!"
Psycho Lesbian - Kuon shows shades of this, combined with Murder the Hypotenuse. She's none too happy with Irina's infatuation with Junichiro and she tries to murder him during the hot springs incident because, as she exclaims with a Nosebleed, only she is allowed to see milady naked!
Put on a Bus - Irina and Kuon return to Russia halfway Yukino and Ran's route...
Mobile Suit Gundam: The White Devil is mentioned a couple of times. A character (Ran if I remember) suggests painting something red and giving it a horn, referring to Char Aznable's custom mobile suits. Remi calls herself the Red Comet, and her aura makes her eat 3 times faster. Also helps that she's pinkish, like Char's Zaku II Commander Colors. During the battle when Souma takes control of the virgins, Morita crashes into Remi, saying Sleggar's last words, and The Sigway is basically the Ball, even down to the nickname "Mobile Coffin", and Morita picks the one with the horn and red paint, referencing Char again
Macross Frontier: "Embrace Me! To the Ends of Nippon!" Complete with "Kirah!" and "Deculture!" In Ell's route, during Remi's attack on Earth, Saionji orders the Hot Spring Task force to do the "Planet Dance", and Morita can be seen in one of the screens wearing Mikhail's helmet.
Starfish Alien - Aliens like Saionji. They don't actually have corporeal bodies as such, though they still somehow manage to reproduce and tend to hitchhike off of local organisms when working. That said, they think in exactly the same manner as a human.
Status Quo Is God - Played for laughs in Yukino's route. Junichiro and Yukino were about to give each other the kiss that would spark the memory rewrite and return everything to normal. Something pretty much the whole game built up to. But they screw it up and everything ends up staying pretty much the same, except that everyone who died in the crash is alive again and everyone knows about the aliens. But Yukino is still president, the Snow House is still there and Remi and Irina announce that they still plan to make Yukino and Junichiro theirs.
The Stinger - Yukino's route. The game ends with a touching scene between Yukino and Junichiro. After the credits, Remi and Irina suddenly butt in, still not having given up on conquering Yukino and Junichiro's hearts, respectively.
Yukino: Nooo!! Let us end with a happy ending at least!!!!
Ran. Justified since she actually works at a restaurant.
Irina learns from her and eventually becomes very good herself, though not up to Ran's level yet.
Take Over the World: Irina decides she's going to unify the world under her rule and make a place in galactic civilization. At the end of her afterstory a newly politically interested Yukino decides she'll help her.
Talk to the Fist - "Wait, Jun-kun. You shouldn't resort to violence!" "Sorry, his speech was too long, so I slugged him."
The Tease - Ran, oh so much. It's pretty clear that she wishes he would make a move. She's probably stop teasing and make a move herself if it wasn't for the fact that she's not supposed to have a relationship with an earthling as a member of the Guardians.
Jun as well. Sometimes when Ran teases him he'll tease right back. However, she's good at keeping a straight face. There is at least one occasion though where she starts blushing furiously when Jun can no longer see her face.
Took a Level in Jerkass: Yukino actually invades Jun's home and won't let him and Irina be alone at all for the beginning of Irin's afterstory, but in the end it's just because she doesn't remember Irina. When they become friends again she mellows out and tries to step aside.
Tyke Bomb - Putina was restructured and trained by Guardian to serve their own purpose.
Unfazed Everyman/Token Human - Yukino is the only one among the main cast who is not related to aliens in some way. Even Ran and Morita turn out to be aliens. Whether her ability to naturally accept everything going on is due to brainwashing or not is ambiguous.
Widget Series - Genderflipped President Obama and Vladimir Putin. You can date either one of them. You can also date a starship or an entity without a true physical body of her own.
Wingding Eyes - Yukino and Irina (but mostly Yukino) have their eyes replaced by twirls when they're heavily confused or shocked. Yukino also literally goes starry-eyed a few times in Ran's route.
Wouldn't Hit a Girl - Jun. Instead, he gropes Kuon into submission! ...That sounded worse than intended. Let's try that again: He groped her into fleeing the battlefield and also gaining something of a crush on him.
In one instance he does the same thing to Remi. It works right up until he triggers her berserk button.
He does it to Irina too. Instead of fighting her, he gropes her breasts, leaving her too aroused to do anything back. To make absolutely sure she doesn't recover, he then tells Kuon that her lady needs to be "taken care" of. Kuon more than happily obliges.
