The Letter is a 2017 horror visual novel from Filipino developers Yangyang Mobile (their most recent project is a rom-com VN, Love Esquire). In the vein of the Japanese horror film, Ju-On (The Grudge internationally), the game focuses on a group of people who unwittingly find themselves the victim of a vengeful ghost when one of them discovers a cursed chain letter in the attic of an old mansion. What follows is a descent into madness and terror as the ghost unleashes her wrath on the game’s ensemble cast of characters.

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, I have something special for you guys! A little while ago the creator of the fantasy Bara comic MEN+MONSTERS reached out to me about possibly covering their comic here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. As a fan of BL media I am always down for something new, and I will admit it has been awhile since I read any Bara, so I was definitely excited to check the comic out. So, imagine my surprise when Aero Zero offered to send me a print copy of MEN+ MONSTERS!
MEN+MONSTERS Volume 1 By Aero Zero
Title: MEN + MONSTERS Volume 1
Author / Artist: Aero Zero
Publisher: MEN PLUS MONSTERS
Genre: Bara / Fantasy / Mature / Graphic Novel
Released: 2014 (online), 2015 (print)
Length: 120 pages
Volume one contains the first 3 chapters of MEN+MONSTERS
SUMMARY:A teratophile knight, his monster lover, and their robot companion go on an adventure to mend the rift between monsters, humans and robots with every sword they have. Hijinks ensue!
MEN+MONSTERS follows the exploits of Lex, an ex-monster hunter and his robot companion, Akilas after they encounter a wounded monster, Silas, while out on patrol. Lex becomes smitten with Silas, engaging in some super sexy fun time with him, despite humanity’s general dislike of monsters. In order to avoid persecution the trio set out in search of a place more accepting of their unusual relationship (note, this is a POLY relationship between a human, a monster, and a robot). Shenanigans and orgies ensue as the fuck their way to world peace. I shit you not, they literally fuck their way to world peace. And that is pretty much the long and short of it.
*NOTE: This is a NSFW 18+ Bara comic, so this review will have some NSFW images. Because I didn’t want to ruin AERO ZERO’s beautiful artwork, I DID NOT censor any of the images.

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, it’s October and here on Nice Job Beraking It, Hero we’re taking a trip into the depths with a month full of Halloween themed posts. And what better way to celebrate Halloween Month than with the Master of Horror, Junji Ito! He is one of my favorite horror mangaka, crafting some of the best horror manga out there, his works range from quirky black comedies to full on nightmare fuel, and I cannot recommend him enough if you’re looking for something deeply unsettling to read. He has a way of making the mundane terrifying, with his surreal stories and unique characters, you can’t help but get drawn into his tangled web of terror!
While rereading a few of his oneshots, I got to thinking what would I do if I found myself the unwitting victim of one of his many horrors. Hell, most of his stories either end in tragedy, death, or in the off chance he’s in a good mood, bittersweet. There really is no getting away scott free in a Junji Ito story, so I did the next best thing and crafted a list of tips that will at the very least keep you from dying a gruesome painful death… If you’re looking for something slightly more optimistic, check out How To Woo and Otome Guy in 5 Easy Steps, for everyone else, here are five helpful tips that are sure to give you a fighting chance against, Junji Ito’s classic horrors.

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, I’m back with another Behind the Games post!
For those of you just joining the party, Behind the Games is a new segment where I interview the folks ‘behind the games’ I review. The series is meant to act as a complement to the reviews I write, giving you guys a chance to get to know the developers that spend so much time carefully crafting the games you enjoy. For each interview I send the Devs five questions (and one random bonus question), to kind of flesh out who they are, while also getting a bit of insight into their inspirations for their games. It’s completely voluntary and meant to be a fun way to get you guys acquainted with content creators.
Last time around I spoke with Jessinia aka Chouette, the creator of the sci-fi romance VN, PAIRS and the upcoming spin-off game SINGLES, so if you missed that, I definitely recommend checking that post out too! This time around, I had the chance to chat with Raikon Kitsune, the dev behind the upcoming modern fantasy game, Reimei no Gakuen!
Raikon Kitsune is an artist, who has recently tried her hand at game developing. With her team, Raikon Kitsune Arts, they are currently working on their first project a modern fantasy game, Reimei no Gakuen. Even though this is her first ever game project, this certainly won’t be her last, as she has tons of great story ideas to share with the world. When she isn’t working on games, Rai is a seasoned artist, specializing in anime styled artwork, with years of experience under her belt! So, without further ado, let’s turn things over to Raikon Kitsune…
