Nureba no Ie no Tatarikon ~ Winter: Taboo ~

Posted on Updated on

Tani Koushirou (谷 幸四郎)
CV: Kuroda Takaya (黒田 崇矢)

The Cursed Marriage of the Black House

Around the time I was old enough to understand things around me, I was sent to Tokyo.

Ever since then it was my dream to be successful and return to my hometown in glory.

Winter, there was a woman there unchanged from the time we separated.

I opened the lock and now I can no longer go back.

Together with my beloved wife and older sister, I will obtain everything.

(Hands down the darkest of this series. Please please do not ignore the warnings I’ll be putting here because this one was messed up to the extreme. I love Koushirou though and this explains the mystery of the Tani household and its curse. WARNING: very dark themes, R18, child abuse, and mind break.)

Synopsis:

Dark desires and cursed blood leads these men to that house–

The jet-black household called Tani, which had stood since the beginning, does not give birth to men.

Therefore it was a rule to take in a son-in-law from another household.

The daughter of the Tani household is beautiful.

Like moths drawn to the light, four men came forward.

And, once again, the seasons pass.

Stage Setting:

A jet-black house coated all over in the deepest black.

In a mountain village in a certain prefecture the Tani household was known to be wealthy; however due to a long-established custom, they were avoided.

After the death of the head of the house, the mother and daughter of the Tani household constantly searched for a successor.

What appeared there was–

The Cursed Marriage of the Black House

Once, my father talked about a destined woman.

He probably became maudlin. I remembered this after I agreed to an engagement.

Autumn, at the village I visited I believed in fate.

You are the only woman I love.

Let our marriage ceremony of the Tani household be the last.

(Arguably one of the sweetest guys in this series but SUCH A TRAGIC END. This one in the series made me think about so many “what if” scenarios… As usual there is a WARNING: dark themes and it’s R18.)

The Cursed Marriage of the Black House

When I was five, my cheek was slapped by your mother.

I was never invited again to that jet-black house.

Summer, that was granted. The village’s custom and his existence was good news.

If you knew everything, would you hate me, I wonder?

I will leave my mark in the blood of the Tani household. That’s what I’ve decided.

(HAPPY VALENTINES TO EVERYONE AND MY BEST BOY OF THIS SERIES!! Haha, sorry, but I just love this man so much I still feel my heart break whenever I think about him. As usual WARNING: dark themes and it’s R18.)

The Cursed Marriage of the Black House

I’ve been living up to now imagining what kind of woman you were.

While moving through various places, that one thought comforted my heart.

Spring, I knew it was you with one glance.

When everything is done, there are things to talk about.

You and this pitch-black house are mine. I won’t hand it over to anyone anymore.

(Surprise!! I really really shouldn’t be doing this but OH MY GOD. THIS IS MY DRAMA CD SERIES OF 2017!! This is such a dark and tragic story but so so so good with the reveals and just… drama. So much drama. I’m actually setting up for Valentines by getting this guy out of the way first LOL. WARNING: dark themes and it’s R18.)

Dear Vocalist ~ (2)You ~

Posted on Updated on

You (ユゥ)
CV: Hanae Natsuki (花江 夏樹)

(DONEZO!! Hope you guys enjoyed this series as much as I did. I think I bit off more than I can chew with my current projects though so I’ll probably hold off on the second season until I make some more progress on the other projects. GOMEN CIEL!!)

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).

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!!)

Ciel (シエル)

(SLAMS HANDS DOWN. HUSBAND IS HERE. I LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH!!! HE GIVES SUCH GREAT LIFE LESSONS IN HIS CDs BECAUSE HE’S RIDICULOUSLY MATURE, CONSIDERATE, AND PROFESSIONAL. HE’S ALSO A KABEDON MANIAC AND HAS THE PERFECT GROWL-Y VOICE.)

Note: His Animate, Tower Record, and Stellaworth tokutens + sample voices are translated (because what’s the point of translating other than to spoil my biases (ᅌᴗᅌ✿ )… jk jk).

Judah (ジュダ)
CV: Saitou Souma (斉藤 壮馬)

(Um, this guy doesn’t have a great personality either… LOL I PROMISE THEY GET BETTER. MY HUSBAND IS UP NEXT SO!! But, to be honest, Judah is a good boy; he just likes to act strong and bluff. He loves his girlfriend even though, at the same time, he’s conscious of the awful personality he has. Also, please look forward to his second season CD because “I Can’t Say Goodbye” is his love song and it’s so good).

(I’m doing this series to keep things fresh >< I promise I’m still working on LN translations in-between these. Anyway, I have three best boys in this series that I wanted to share with everyone but to fully appreciate them… you have to experience the rest of the guys LOL which is why I’ve picked this series up. Also, dammit, Rejet released a 3rd season of these boys!)

Period Cube ~ Poyopoyo ~

Posted on Updated on

Poyopoyo (ポヨポヨ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(MY FAVORITE ONE IN THE SERIES. It’s not a spoiler because they’ve revealed it in the scans and character page, which is that Poyopoyo’s true form is Kazuha’s brother. Also, this is the first time I’m doing this but TRIGGER WARNING: there is a torture scene in this CD and lots of bloody sound effects. His brotherly affection is on par with Wabisuke from Gekka Ryouran Romance.)

Background: Kazuha wakes up in a dungeon and has this mysterious informant monster thing that floats around and helps her figure out how to play the game. It’s soon revealed that he’s her brother in disguise and he seems to have some knowledge of the things that are going around in World V.

Period Cube ~ Astrum ~

Posted on Updated on

Astrum (アストラム)
CV: Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井 孝宏)

(Say hello to my second favorite character of this entire series and game. I almost wish the main focus of this game wasn’t about the heroine’s search for her brother but this conflict between angels and devils, because Astrum’s CD makes it sound so much more interesting. THE CONFLICT. IT’S SO GOOD. ALSO I GET SO EMOTIONAL OVER HIS LAST LINES.)

Background: Kazuha is the Divine Sword, Amadeus, which is one of the keys needed to clear the final dungeon that will free everyone from this game. However, the catch is that only the race of the party that clears the dungeon is allowed to leave and Astrum is the leader of the angels so… Astrum’s CD is about his loneliness and not being understood; he’s the one who finds Kazuha in this one.

Period Cube ~ Hiroya ~

Posted on Updated on

Hiroya (ヒロヤ)
CV: Okamoto Nobuhiko (岡本 信彦)

(I’m a terrible person who starts too many projects, but Period Cube is coming out in May and I want people to join me in this Sword Art Online-type hell. THERE IS ONLY ONE CD I REALLY WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS (volume 6) but I might as well do the entire series. My order is going to be Vol1, Vol4, and Vol6 though before filling in the rest because 1) we need backstory and 2) I have clear biases).

Background: The heroine, Kazuha, and her childhood friend, Hiroya, are searching for Kazuha’s brother, who has seemed to disappear. Their only clue is a cryptic message from her brother telling her not to come to this game server. But they do and end up getting trapped inside! Hiroya’s CD is about his relationship with the heroine and his jealousy of her brother.
