Celebrating 6th Anniversary!

Posted on Updated on

Holy moly time is flying by too quickly!! I can hardly believe we’ve reached 6 years on this blog already; there’s this weird sense where I feel like I’ve posted nothing at all but also posted a truckload. I almost wish there was a total word counter to see how many words I’ve written altogether… on second thought, maybe not, because I know my first Beyond the Future post nearly broke 100,000 words LOL and I don’t want to see the sad total.

Also, what the heck happened to my blog. Where’d the games go!? LOL. I was trying my best to beat Aksys localizations and play the JP versions before the ENG ones came out but that soon became a pipe dream. They localize faster than I can play because I keep getting distracted with other projects, wah. I will return from the war one day!! But in my defense everything is still geared towards otome!! It’s just become a blog encompassing different media :’) so thank you everyone for putting up with my eclectic posts.

I always say this but wow my Japanese has improved so much. It’s really nostalgic looking back at my crappy posts and the games I started out with– oops, I probably shouldn’t have brought that up because now some of you may be tempted to look back at my sordid history (please don’t!). On a serious note, a huge thank you to everyone who’s followed me up to now and a warm welcome to the new people who have decided to follow my blog! I do recognize the names of people who comment lots so don’t think I don’t see you coming and going <3!

Anyway, as per tradition, I’ll be hosting a giveaway again. Anyone is free to participate as long as they fulfill the rules condition (don’t worry, it’s super easy). Once again, thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to see people around again next year!

Chapter 1: Awakening

You were brought under the protection of the Toyotomi Army, where many individualistic commanders gathered; however, they weren’t humans but “vampires”.

Aiming to unify the country, they headed for a fight with the Oda Army but…

Chapter 1.5

After shaking off the pursuit from the Oda Army, we managed to return safely to the Toyotomi castle.

[name]: (Phew… while I was on the battlefield I felt completely numb…… but now I can finally catch my breath.)

But it seemed like I was the only one who was relieved at returning home alive.

[TOSHIIE]: “ARGH, that wasn’t enough! Shit! Retreating from there is so lame.”

Chapter 1.3

Let’s run together– saying that, Hideyoshi-san pulled my hand and ran into the forest out of the base camp, which was swarmed with enemies.

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Phew…… we’ve been separated pretty far from our friends, but it looks like we’ve lost our pursuers from the Oda Army for the moment?”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Just in case, let’s hide in this bush for a while and check things out.”

[name]: “Haa… haa… o-okay……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Here, come closer. It’ll be a problem if the enemy finds us, right?”

[name]: (Um, if we’re any closer, our bodies will be glued to each other……)

[ODA SOLDIER]: “They have to be nearby still! Split up and search for them!”

[name]: (…………!)

[name]: (I ended up being brought to the battlefield by Hideyoshi-san, but……)

Hideyoshi-san and I held back in a place far away from the frontline where Toshiie-san and soldiers of the Toyotomi Armi were forming ranks.

[TOSHIIE]: “Aw yeah! I’ve got the best spear!! EVERYONE, LET’S GOOOO!!”

[KANBEE]: “Toshiie’s unit has broken into the enemy ranks. Hanbee, are preparations ready?”

[HANBEE]: “I’ve got it, Kanbee! Alrighty, everyone! Let’s attack together with Kanbee’s unit!!”

[MITSUNARI]: “Second Army, assemble into formation immediately! Continue sending troops to the frontline, so that the enemy cannot rest!”

[name]: “Um, I didn’t know how to wear it…… and, uh…… unfamiliar clothes are a bit……”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Aww~, I even prepared a really good kimono~!”

[name]: “S-Sorry.”

[HIDEYOSHI]: “Geez, well, there’s nothing that can be done about that now. I’ll have to get a proper apology from you one day, but for now come sit beside me.”

Light Beyond 3 ~ Chapter Two ~

Posted on Updated on

“Wow, it looks amazing on you, Lady Celiastina!”

Yuna, who was standing in front of the full-length mirror in her room, sent a wry smile back at her maid, Nasha, who looked at the mirror and exclaimed in delight.

Right now, Yuna looked more like a fashionable aristocratic lady than a saint who served God. She had on a light pink dress, layered with delicate lace, and a necklace with a large jewel; her makeup was also applied more carefully than usual.

“No, really, for this dress to be worn so splendidly…”

The dressmaker beside Nasha had a wide smile as he said this with admiration.

It was recent that he, an expert dressmaker, made a request to present his own work to the saint Celiastina. In less than a month, when the royal palace gave consent, the dress and the person himself entered the royal palace. And, because he wanted to check if there were any measurements which didn’t fit, it became a dress fitting session right there.

Dear Vocalist ~ A’ ~

Posted on Updated on

A’ (エーダッシュ)
CV: Kimura Ryouhei (木村 良平)

(A Very Good Boy right here. A’ makes my heart hurt because he’s such a sweet darling but he has such a real issue. I’m sure that if you were to look at the DSM-5 he’d check out on everything for bipolar disorder. Kudos to the heroine and how she supports him because this boy is a roller coaster. HIS SECOND SONG IS SO SAD!!)

Story premise is that these 6 boys have bands that are managed by Climax Records and though they have talent they have… their own problems. One day, the music executive (or executive producer) tells the boys that this is their last song. And so they’re all betting their survival on these last songs. Can you, as their girlfriend, support them? (Each boy has a different girlfriend).

When you woke up, you found yourself in a world completely different from the modern era called Shinga.

In the moment you were suspected as an enemy and about to be killed, the one who ordered taking you back to the castle, called the worst move, was “Date Masamune”.

In the dark woods, two men surveyed the castle below them.

[???]: “Weapons and provisions are being carried out from the castle one after another…… As we thought, they intend to have a large battle soon.”

[???]: “Looks like it. Once they open the castle during battle, it’ll be the perfect chance for a surprise attack.”

[???]: “Aa…… Alright, getting this information should be more than enough. Let’s return to the castle, Shigezane.”

[DATE SHIGEZANE]: “If we get found by the enemy, there’ll be no meaning to our scouting, huh. Roger that–…… wait, huh? Hey, Kojuurou, where’d Masamune go?”

[KATAKURA KOJUUROU]: “Hm?…… He was just here a second ago–“

In your confusion, the people who saved you were the kind commanders of the “Sanada Army”, who had animal ears!

[???]: “…… What do we do? It’d be bad to leave her alone.”

[???]: “…… Oh! It looks like she’s awake!”

Astonished at the sight that leapt into my eyes, I blinked with surprise.

There were thickly grown trees as far as my eyes could see. There weren’t any street lights or buildings to be found in the area.

Sengoku Night Blood ~ Introduction Guide ~

Posted on Updated on

Sengoku Night Blood (senbura for short) is a mobile otome game collaboration between Otomate, Kadokawa, and Marvelous. It features an impressive main cast of 28 seiyuu and 6 different artists who have done illustrations for many Otomate games. More details about this can be found in my Sengoku Night Blood page.

Official site is senbura.jp.

This post is going to double as both an introduction to the game and a guide (with any tips & tricks I picked up on). Please feel free to offer suggestions in the comments below, ask any questions, or even just talk about the game.

STORY: In a parallel universe on a world called Shinga, during the Sengoku period, a war-torn country was united by a mysterious woman called Himemiko. Her blood had the ability to strengthen the gekkazoku, a race that consists of two species – vampires and werewolves – who share this world with humans.

But one day Himemiko disappeared and the peace was broken. Shinga became split into various territories, each ruled by a warlord, who put their lives on the line to fight and unite the country under their name, ideals, and beliefs.

However, before Himemiko’s disappearance, she foretold the appearance of a woman from a parallel universe, “you”, and told her follower, Imari, to seek you out. Meanwhile, you hear the mysterious voice of a woman and awaken to find yourself in Shinga.

It turns out your blood has the same effects as Himemiko’s and you become indispensable to the warlords in their vision to unite the country. A story about love and war begins!
