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!
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.
