Latest Event Updates

Celebrating 2nd Anniversary!

Posted on Updated on

♪(*⌒ー⌒)o∠★:゚*PAN! Can you imagine that it’s been two years already? Wow, time flies… Especially when you look at my blog and you realize that there hasn’t even been that many posts since last year? Oops, I really need to do something about my speed //sobs. But my motto has always been “slow and steady” (at least in regards to this blog). It’s better to keep up my average speed like this than to try and rush out reviews and just burn myself out from otome games, don’t you think so?

Anyway, I should get to the point of this post. Once again I want to thank all of you so much for continuing to follow this blog! So here’s a big thank you to all of my old and new followers ♥~(‘▽‘人). To be honest I was hoping I could finish Diabolik Lovers and Amnesia Later before it reached my second anniversary so that I could host another game summary giveaway but… yeah, as you can see, not happening unless I get a time machine ヾ(:3ノシヾ)ノシ. Instead I’ll be making this a drama CD translation giveaway and feedback post.

EDIT: As of August 26, 12:06 PM PST, the giveaway is officially over! The random number generator spat up #32 and the person closest to that was shoujosei who had #36! I’ll get started on the request Jooubachi no Kanbinaru as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone who participated! I won’t close the comments this time so people can still give me feedback /o/.

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Reiji ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Reiji (逆巻 レイジ)
CV: Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

Reiji is the second oldest of the Sakamaki brothers. He talks very politely and tries to uphold the image of being refined and not falling prey to his vampire instincts. He also acts like a caretaker for his brothers and cleans the house. He has a fondness for tea and his tea cup collection.

(Since so many people were requesting Reiji I decided to do him! I was also convinced by his Versus CD where he just sounds amazing. Can you believe that we’re halfway through the vampires? It’s only taken me like… half a year).

Sakamaki Kanato (逆巻 カナト)

Sakamaki Reiji (逆巻 レイジ)
CV: Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

(We made it everyone! The last round of the VERSUS series! Everyone who has stuck with me up until now deserves a cookie and hugs… and maybe a blood transfusion, haha. Before you ask, I don’t think I’ll be translating More Blood because I have too many projects going on already ;;; but Doropyan has been doing some!).

Hana Awase 「蛟編」 ~ Iroha ~

Posted on Updated on

Iroha (いろは)
CV: Terashima Takuma (寺島 拓篤)

Iroha is Rank 1 among the 5 Brights and a third year kaei of the Chisengumi. He is the strongest of the kaei and everyone looks up to him and desires to be him, especially since his eyes have the full moon. He’s quite emotionless, which gets him get called a robot a lot, and he’s also strict on the rules. He’s very distant from the world and if it weren’t for Momotose he would be wearing the same dirty clothes everyday.

(I cried many times while finishing up this post. If you’re going to read this then I suggest having a box of tissues nearby. Also, now that I’m finally done HA I can concentrate my full efforts on DiaLov and Amnesia Later. Thanks for being patient!)

DAY 21. Today is the day that Mikoto needs to choose a partner to do Kabatsu with and help her awaken as a senki.

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!

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Kanato ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Kanato (逆巻 カナト)
CV: Kaji Yuuki (梶 裕貴)

Kanato is one of the triplets of the Sakamaki family. He’s special… in that he has a teddy bear who he talks to and treats as if it were alive. His hobbies include making dolls, eating sweets, and throwing endless temper tantrums. But in reality, he’s actually quite manipulative.

(I’m following the same format as my Ayato post. The prologue is the same up to the point where she chooses who to suck her blood since there’s added dialogue after completing a character. Also, all ENDS 2/3 requires Yui to make ドS choices instead of ドM choices after Maniac, so keep that in mind).

Hana Awase 「蛟編」 ~ Mizuchi ~

Posted on Updated on

Mizuchi (蛟)
CV: Fukuyama Jun (福山 潤)

Mizuchi is Rank 3 among the 5 Brights and a second year kaei of the Koukokugumi, which Mikoto ends up joining. He appears stiff and very formal, but it’s easy to see his sincere and kind nature. Everyone teases him for being pure and prim because he has no idea how to treat a lady other than with innocent respect; however, there is a reason for his rigid self-control, obsessive adherence to rules, and how strict he is on himself.

(Gods, I am so sorry for how long it took to get this out. I’ve been terribly busy with school and the time that I do have free is taken by Fire Emblem: Awakening and Tokimeki Restaurant. I really really apologize! Just one more to go and then back to Diabolik Lovers and Amnesia Later.)

DAY 21. Mikoto must choose a partner to do kabatsu with and to help her awaken as a senki.

Diabolik Lovers Versus ~ Subaru vs. Laito ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Subaru (逆巻 スバル)
CV: Kondo Takashi (近藤 隆)

Sakamaki Laito (逆巻 ライト)
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke (平川 大輔)

(Welcome to Round 2 with the audience versus the sadistic vampire brothers! I’m amazed we all haven’t dropped dead yet and, seriously, anyone who’s made it up to this point in this series deserves a cookie. We should all reward ourselves whenever we finish a track. Also, SUPER APOLOGIES FOR THE REALLY LATE TRANSLATION).

Podcast ~ Otoge to Anime ~

Posted on Updated on

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!

Hana Awase 「蛟編」 ~ Karakurenai ~

Posted on Updated on

Karakurenai (唐紅)
CV: Hino Satoshi (日野 聡)

Karakurenai is Rank 2 among the 5 Brights and a third year kaei of the Oukagumi. He is known to be a genius at Hana Awase and is so strong that one minamo isn’t enough to support him. All of his minamo love to be played by him and he treats them like his possessions. He’s a playboy, selfish, and savagely possessive of what he considers to be his. He also thinks of himself first before anyone else, but is this his true character?

DAY 21. Mikoto wakes up in her room and realizes that today is the day to decide on a partner to help her awaken as a senki and to do kabatsu with.

Hana Awase 「蛟編」 ~ Himeutsugi ~

Posted on Updated on

Himeutsugi (姫空木)
CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke (立花 慎之介)

Himeutsugi is Rank 4 among the 5 Brights and is a second year kaei of the Gekkougumi. Everyone thinks of him to be a kind, deeply considerate, and sympathetic person. In fact, he is frequently called “Hime-sama” which is a play on his name and means “Princess”. But he seems to have a hidden side to him, a side which not many can see or even understand. Perhaps the “Princess” doesn’t want to be a “Princess”.

DAY 21. Mikoto wakes up in her room and realizes that today is the day where she has to decide on a partner for her to do kabatsu with and to awaken as a senki.

Hana Awase 「蛟編」 ~ Common Route ~

Posted on Updated on

The wheels of fate turn without rest, stopping for nothing and no one. Love is not just joy and happiness; Love is obsessive, overwhelming, unrequited, and sorrowful. A love without reward is still love. But the winner is the one who is shone on by the moon. The losers; playthings to fate’s machinations. This is the world of Hana Awase, where only the flower touched by the blessed water blooms.

“Although its scent still lingers on,
the form of a flower has scattered away.
For whom will the glory
of this world remain unchanged?
Arriving today at the yonder side
of the deep mountains of evanescent existence.
We shall never allow ourselves to drift away,
intoxicated, in the world of shallow dreams.”
“Iroha” by Ryuichi Abe.

(Because I adore this game so much, I decided to do a common route for it. The path, depending on which person you choose, happens at the end of this common route. I sincerely recommend you take these happy moments in this common route to heart because after this it is just a speeding freight train to despair _(:3」∠)_. This is a ridiculously amazing game though; my game of the year. PS. I promise to return to DiaLov!)

(The wonderful Lore at Tealdeer also made an English primer for this. Full view pictures at 850 x 595).

Amnesia Later ~ Shin ~

Posted on Updated on

Shin (シン)
CV: Kakihara Tetsuya (柿原 徹也)

Despite being one year younger than the heroine, Shin is a very responsible and mature young man. In fact, being younger merely spurs him on to become the type of man that can be with her. Unfortunately, in this route he has to deal with the heroine’s ridiculous rendition of a five year old or a prude virgin. If only the GOOD END involved him breaking up with her.

Diabolik Lovers ~ Sakamaki Ayato ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Ayato (逆巻 アヤト)
CV: Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

Ayato is one of the triplets of the Sakamaki household. He has a very selfish and arrogant personality and thinks himself to be the best at everything. He loves to call the heroine “chichinashi” which means flat-chested. He tends to be very possessive of what is his and very perverted.

(All the choices I make up to the Ending 01 are the M choices because it seems like that leads to the best end. I’ll only summarize briefly what happens if you choose the other choices to get the different endings in their appropriate sections. The Heaven scenarios are like extra special things.)

Diabolik Lovers Versus ~ Ayato vs. Shu ~

Posted on Updated on

Sakamaki Ayato (逆巻 アヤト)
CV: Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

Sakamaki Shu (逆巻 シュウ)
CV: Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海 浩輔)

(Here’s a treat for you all! I mean, I’m basically the unofficial Diabolik Lovers girl around here now… /)_(\. I figured that since I’ve already translated all 6 volumes and will be playing the game, I might as well just suck it up and translate the Versus CDs as well! You have my OCD to thank for this..

I know that Misty Moon Night on tumblr has been translating the DiaLov Versus series as well, so you can go there to check out her translation too! We have different personal styles so you can check it out~! Don’t expect this to be a perfect translation because some lines were really hard (シ_ _)シ).
