This week’s post will include a brief synopsis and links to each game so you can add them to your gaming library! You don’t have to break the bank to enjoy your hobbies, so save a little bread and check this week’s thrifty gaming picks!
I'm a blerd who just so happens to love anime, manga, and games (especially Pokemon and Otome Games).
With the way 2020 has been going, I figured now was a great time to bring some super happy energy to Blerdy Otome!! So, I’m tackling the Super Happy Love Award! I was nominated for this super fun award by TheRandomEditor a phenomenal blogger and artist! I fell in love with their Bara essays and posts, which are both entertaining and educational—go read those ASAP—but, they also write some great anime analysis essays and reviews that are definitely worth checking out!
I have quite a few award nominations that have piled up, but this one is definitely the most unique AND it was created by the absolutely delightful Pinkie from Pinkie’s Paradise! She created this tag as a way to promote positive vibes in a time when there’s a whole heck of a lot of negativity floating around.
“The ones we love , even when fictional, are oftenly only human after all. With this blog tag I want to spread love for all the fandoms and united fans in positivity again! No longer will we shake our heads and say “this isn’t the <insert fandom> that we used to know.. they destroyed our beloved. NO! We stand together and join forces and turn this into “Remember the time that <insert fandom> did this amazing thing! I LOVE IT!”
Couldn’t think of a game on my own so I turned to twitter and as always, you guys came through! Thanks to everyone who participated, I really loved seeing your picks!
There was a nice mix of suggestions—some of the games I had played, some I hadn’t, but I decided to go with Meg’s (@PearlyShelves) choice—Lost in Secular Love. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the game, Lost in Secular Love is a chinese otome game developed by Yetu Games. In the game you play as Qiye, the daughter of a noble family that has fallen on hard times. Not wanting you to suffer, your mother sends you to a local temple in hopes of marrying one of the monks there, Zhi Kong.
I’m going to be honest I haven’t played this game so I know absolutely nothing aside from the fact that all of the love interests are monks… and there is just something kind of ironic about having an otome game that revolves around romancing monks… Trust me, this game is on my list, but this post is based solely on other reviews and character bios—it’s kinda more fun that way, doncha think?
Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe!! Blerdy Otome is turning 5 this month and I wanted to do something special this year to celebrate!

So, send in your questions and I’ll share them and my answers in a massive post at the end of the month!

Can you believe I’ve been blogging for five years?! I’ve come a long way since my Nice Job Breaking It Hero days and while I’m always looking towards the future, every now and again I like to take a look back and reflect on my past. So this year I’m going to share some of my favorite posts from every year I’ve been blogging!!
Kicking things off with 2015! I was just getting my start back then and I didn’t really have a “style” so to speak, so I just kinda wrote whatever popped into my head… with some interesting results.
