Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! I kinda skipped a few months, sorry, I’ve been juggling a lot recently so sadly the site has taken a bit of a backseat. But, I’m going to be better about that in the coming weeks and months. However, some exciting things did happen recently and I wanted to share:
- I participated in another otome roundtable with Aksys Games to discuss the AX otome announcements
- Big social milestones–5K followers on Twitter and 1K followers on Twitch
- Attending Otakon 2022 again as press & got to meet some really cool online folks IRL!
- Set up partnerships with VIZ Media, Seven Seas, and TokyoPop (so more manga content, YAY!)
So, there’s been a lot of things going on behind the scenes, so as always thank you all for your support! I can’t express how much your kind words, comments, and DMs mean to me! 💖
As always there’s a lot more on the horizon in August, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of July here at Blerdy Otome!
Favorite July Post
UUUltraC is an 18+ BL visual novel developed by ADELTA and localized by MangaGamer for PC (and Steam). Heavily inspired by tokusatsu media, the game is set in 1970s Japan in a world where battles between heroes and kaiju are the norm. In the midst of all this three couples on different sides of the hero/kaiju conflict struggle to live normal lives.

Games Played on Stream in July
I’m now on Twitch! Over on my channel BlerdyOtomeGames I play a ton of different games each month. In case you missed my streams here are the games I played this month!
Instagram Fave Post
Of all my social media accounts, Instagram is where I’m most active. So, here is my favorite Instagram post from July!
Reviews To Expect in August
I usually just go with the flow when it comes to content here on Blerdy Otome, so it’s kind of hard to pin down what to expect each month. I want to get better at sticking to a “schedule” so I thought it would be good practice to include a section with some of the reviews I plan to write during the upcoming month. Not only will this hold me accountable, but it will also give you all an idea of what to expect to see in the month ahead. Full disclosure, this is not a complete list and there’s a good chance things will change—this is more of a rough draft…
- Tokyo Onmyoji
- Patient S Remedy
- Random indie games
- Manga Reviews
