Hey, hey all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers out there it’s Monday, and that means another Melanin Monday post!! For those of you just joining us, Melanin Monday is a special weekly post series that I started for Black History Month, where I talk about Black and Brown skinned characters in anime, manga, video games, etc.
I was originally going to end the series at the end of the month, but due to the positive feedback, I will continue Melanin Mondays!! However, another weekly post series on top of all the other stuff I have to write for this blog would be a bit too much for me to handle, so I’m making this a bi-weekly series instead. So expect a new Melanin Monday post every other Monday until I get tired of writing them…
*Disclaimer: I realize that this is a touchy subject for some people, but I want to let you all know right now, that while comments are welcome, I will nottolerate any personal attacks or overtly nasty comments. If you can’t discuss this post in a respectful and civilized manner, then keep your hands off the keyboard… I promise you I will not be very forgiving of anyone that uses my comments section as such!
So, I meant to write about this earlier, but I have been asleep for hours LOL… *ahem* If you follow me on twitter you’ll know that I have been tweeting about one thing since the other day… and if you aren’t following me on Twitter, you should, because that’s where I make most of my big announcements…
Tonight at 7:30PM EST I will participate in my SECOND Livestream with Fellow Bloggers Lita Kino and Katrina Sade!! Link…. HERE!
YUP, we’re getting the band back together for a special OWLS livestream event! We’ll be talking about OWLS, the past and upcoming Blog Tours, and answering any questions you all might have about the organization, so definitely stop by and show us some love! It’ll definitely be a night of fun, so don’t miss out!!
TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! I have been sucked into sports anime hell once again… I don’t know what to tell you guys, this anime was just supposed to be background noise while I worked on some blogging stuff. But, before I knew it, I’d breezed through 10 episodes and hadn’t made any headway on my posts…So, what pray tell was the name of this captivating anime?
*mumbles indistinctly* F…e… Oh you didn’t catch that? *clears throat* It’s that swimming anime… the one with the *ahem* gratuitous fanservice, you know the one…
[Insert fangirl squeal]
It’s Free: Iwatobi Swim Club… What can I say, I’m weak to scantily clad boys! Oh, did I mention they spend most of the show soaking wet? I didn’t? Well, let me correct that right now. The guys of Free spend the better part of each episodes in tight fitting swimwear with water droplets glistening on their perfectly animated torsos… *fans self* It suddenly got a little hot in here, and is anyone else thirsty?
So while I was away at Katsucon, Voltage Inc released the final route in their newest (at least for the English market) app, Dangerous Seduction. I’m not gonna lie, but I am not a huge fan of the mature romance options like Kentaro Inui, so I went into this route not really expecting much…
Boy was I wrong! This fills in the gaps left by the other routes and we finally, FINALLY get to see the face behind the organization after the MC! We also get to learn a bit more about the MC’s father and his connection to the team… especially, their enigmatic leader, Kentaro Inui. If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.
**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc. Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area.
Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, it’s Thrifty Thursday and that means another Thrifty Gamer, the weekly post series where I spotlight three otome games/visual novels for gamers on a budget. Whatever your financial situation, I’m here to bring you affordable games that won’t break the bank!! All of the games on this list are $10 or less (does not include limited time offers and sale items), so no more weepy wallets!
This week’s post will include links to the games and a brief synopsis, but let me stress that these are not reviews, but recommendations… so your mileage may vary! Now that that’s out of the way lets get on to this week’s list!!
Blerdy Otome is an otome games and visual novel review site that runs on Black Girl Magic and Dreams. While I mostly focus on romance themed games, I’ve been known to cover a wide range of nerdy and otaku themed topics.
So, step right up and prepare your heart! Let’s talk about otome games!!
