Absolute Obedience (a.k.a. Zettai Fukuju Meirei) A Visual Novel / Boys Love Game by Langmaor, it's one of the very few BL games to have been officially released in English (by JAST USA). It stars the beautiful and brutal Louise Hardwich, and his partner Kia WelBehenna as they seduce their way through the male population in post-WW 2 Germany, slowly coming to the realization that maybe they'd rather seduce each other.

The reasons for these seductions vary. Louise runs a small, but exclusive agency where you can hire either of them to punish someone sexually for whatever misdeed you might have imagined. Of course, this rarely works out the way they hoped.

As the seductions continue, increasingly odd scenes appear here and there, hinting that our heroes may not be as in control of the situation as they are of their lovers. What could possibly be going on? Can Kia and Louise ever find true love amidst all this tawdry sex?

Tropes used in Absolute Obedience include:

The character-specific "missions" in this game provide examples of:

  • Boys Love Types: Anel and Jens, both of them showing a different shota personality type. (Anel is sweet, innocent and girly, while Jens is an energetic, perverted, Tsundere.)
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Most of Ferdinand's route. Such as the macho-men pushing the swan boat mentioned below.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: In Eduard's bad ending he gets crushed to death by a statue in the church while attempting to repent for what Kia just did to him.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Zhores Barsoukova is practically the living example of this trope. Despite being male.
  • Depraved Homosexual: Martin Adenauer, the client of "The Gay Man's Trap." In addition to the mission title (and his plans for the target), Kia specifically notices his public declaration that he will never ever get married.
  • Expy: Werner looks like Lusca after a Palette Swap and an alignment change.
  • Foe Yay: Spoofed with Berti and Hagen.
  • Honey Trap: though the series prefers the term Sweet Trap.
  • Karma Houdini: Alec and Gistarch.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Aside from Louise, there's also the targets, Hagan and Ferdinand.
  • Phantom Thief: Schwarz Kreuz, aka Silvio Wenzel
  • Rape as Drama: In Dirk's "best" ending, he's kidnapped and gang-raped by the client and his minions and rescued by a possessive Kia, who'd also raped him earlier but who Dirk sees as a positive messiah in comparison. Intimate Psychotherapy ensues. This also happens the other way around to Kia in one of the secret endings, wherein the "psychotherapist" is Louise.
  • Shotacon: Anel, though he gets aged up in the American release. Yeah like THAT'S eighteen.
  • "Shut Up" Kiss: Kia did that to Eduard in the middle of his rant.
  • Something About a Rose: Ferdinand, especially during one... interesting sex scene
  • Tsundere: Jens and Ali fit into this trope quite well.
  • Upper Class Twit with a side order of Bishie Sparkle: Ferdinand is one of the wealthiest young nobles in Germany, and does things like have large burly men pedal fake rose-filled swans across the lake to create a romantic atmosphere.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Ferdinand's maids, Franziska.
