Holiday!

Posted on Updated on

‘Ello ello ヽ(*´ー`*)ノ! I just wanted to inform all my blog readers that I’ll be gone for a month on a short vacation. I’ll be visiting Taiwan and Japan, so there won’t be any updates during that time. I was planning on having something queued up for the month of May, but I couldn’t finish anything on time… sorry _(:3」∠)_.

I’ll be gone from May 5th to May 29th. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for the internet while I’m out traveling and being on vacation so I’ll apologize ahead of time for the lack of comment replies during that time. I’ll edit this post and title when I get back to let you guys know when I’m properly home.

EDIT: I’m back home now and thank you all for the nice comments! I certainly had fun ( *´艸`) shopping and stuff and then I went to a butler cafe… LOL. The highlight of my trip to Japan… ah…

As always, thank you all so very much for continuing to stick with me and my turtle-speed blogging! Please take care of yourselves and have a fantastic summer!

Podcast ~ Otoge to Anime ~

Episode 2: Otome Games to Anime Adaptations

Hello! It’s been a while since we last did a podcast and we were both taken aback by the interest that people expressed in hearing more of these. I honestly thought that no one would really care to hear about us TL;DRing or derping around about our opinions /)_(\! Anyway, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the recent surge of anime adaptations of otome games and how the different sides of the otome fandom were affected by it.

Once again, I’m sure we missed a few points in here so I may supplement the bottom of this post with points that I forgot to include inside. Discussion is always welcome below so long as all the replies are civil and respectful!

Celebrating 1st Anniversary!

Posted on Updated on

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚☆! Today is the anniversary of the creation of my blog! It’s kind of strange to think that it’s officially been one year since I created this blog and started posting here. Time sure flies by! Anyway, I wanted to give a great big thank you to everyone who has been following and visiting my blog up to now by hosting a little giveaway event for all my stalkers guests. Click the “read the rest of this entry” for more information about the event and prizes.

EDIT: As of 8/20 the contest is now over and so the comments are closed! The number drawn was 89 by my brother, which means that the winner is comment #29 by Eva who chose 86. Her request was a summary of Diabolik Lovers and so after Amnesia Later, I’ll be picking it up.

Thank you all so much for participating by the way! You guys are all awesome and knowing that you guys love reading my textwalls really makes me happy. I never expected to go over 15 comments or so and so getting 40 of them blew me over. Here’s a hug for you all ♥♥(づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ!! I’ll continue doing my best to writing this blog and sharing the otome love, so please feel free to drop by whenever! Your support really keeps me going! これからもよろしくお願いします!

Podcast ~ Sadism in Otome ~

Posted on Updated on

Episode 1: Sadism

I know I know, I should be working on translations or summaries for games, but this was too interesting to pass up (>人<;)! My fellow podcaster, Suri from kisscoma, and I have noticed the recent trend of sadistic otome games and the polarized responses from players and fans. Because of this we started discussing the topic of sadism with each other, but 140 words on twitter made it near impossible (plus we were starting to spam the timeline and so we needed to gtfo ;;).

This post will feature the outline of our podcast and the general topic headings of what we touched on. I’m sure we missed a lot of points and since Suri and I held the same view, it might not have been the most optimal discussion. So I definitely encourage anyone and everyone to comment below and add to the discussion or give feedback about our first podcast. The only rules are to remain polite and respectful.

Mashiroiro Symphony ~ Sena Airi ~

Posted on Updated on

Sena Airi (瀬名 愛理)
CV: Ono Ryoko (小野 涼子)

(I’m sorry for not having updated lately, but I’ve realized that I’m tired of otome games. They’re all the same with your tsunyankuudere guys. All those bishies, wall pinnings, vampires, and whatnot are so boring! So then I decided to turn to eroges and OMG THEY’RE SO FUN!! I just finished this route and I’m convinced! From now on this blog will only have eroge reviews!)

This route is all about Airi, the poster girl. She’s a capable rich oujousama, all about being independent and she goes to an all girls school, because she hates all men, at the start of the game. She and Shingo’s sister go to the same school and this leads to her meeting with Shingo!
