Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – September 2020

Hey there Blerdy Tribe, it has been one hell of a year, but I hope you guys are all hanging in there! September was a busy month for me since I moved to a new apartment and I am ready for things settle down… however, it looks like that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. This was also the month that I said goodbye to my 20’s and you know what it’s kinda surreal… I feel exactly the same as I did BEFORE my birthday hit.

I mentioned that I was invited to participate in a roundtable discussion with the Manga Mavericks Podcast discussing what it’s like being a Black nerd and I HAD A BLAST!! I got to talk and laugh with so many other talented Black nerdy content creators, so definitely give the episode a listen: Manga Mavericks EP. 133: “Black Representation in Anime/Manga”. I have even more neat stuff coming in October, but before that, let’s look back at the month of September here on Blerdy Otome!!

Favorite September Post

Otome that made me cry

I like to think that I’m not a gal that cries easily. Sure, I’m human, I get emotional sometimes, but it takes a lot to get me to actually cry, and not just a few stray tears, but like ugly cry. A story so heartbreakingly beautiful that you can’t help but let all your emotions just spill over. So, I did some thinking and I came up with a list of five games that hit me deep in the feels and had me bawling like a baby! Now, it’s not just one route or one character with a tragic backstory… no, the whole game is one emotional gut punch after another! So, grab your Kleenex and get ready for five otome games that made me cry…
