5 Reasons You Should Play Collar x Malice

Collar x Malice is the newest otome game localization to make its way to the Nintendo Switch—the console that is quickly making itself the hub for otome fans after the death of the Playstation Vita. Anyone who played the game back when it was released here in the west will tell you that Collar x Malice is one of the best otome games to make it’s way stateside—with it’s engaging story and stellar cast of characters—this is one of the games that I most recommend to folks looking to make the jump to otome games.

Wholesome BL Reads - Blerdy Otome

Wholesome BL Reads to Add to Your Reading List

Boys Love used to be a dirty little secret fujoshi and fudanshi enjoyed in the dark recesses of their bedrooms—and I will admit that there was a time when I wouldn’t dare admit that I liked anything even remotely related to the genre. But, times have changed and BL media isn’t the taboo it once was…

Boys Love Anime

My Favorite Boys Love Anime (so far)

It’s no secret that I’m a huge BL fan with a few years of experience with the genre under my belt. So, I’m always amazed to see how much the genre has grown over the years. Newer series have started moving away from the sex heavy stories towards more realistic depictions of same sex relationships, opening up the genre to more general audiences.

Fuck Marry Kill

F#@k, Marry, Kill Otome Edition – Star Crossed Myth

5 Games That Have Had The Biggest Impact On My Life (So Far…)

A little while ago Lizzo from Soulcial Dreamers included me in one of those Twitter tags that are always making the rounds.

10 Indie Games You Should Be Playing

Each year we get tons of new indie game releases, from thought provoking art pieces to RPG simulators to immersive visual novels, there’s no end to the wealth of new titles being released.

Side Characters Shouldn’t Be This Cute – Non-Dateable Otome Guys I Wish Had A Route

Otome games are filled with beautiful boys, it’s a part of that fantasy to romance your own personal harem of super mega hot guys… But, have you ever come across a really hot guy in an otome game only to discover that he isn’t one of the main love interests?!

5 Reasons to Play Indie Games

5 Reasons You Should Give Indie Games A Try

In recent years indie games have started to surpass their mainstream counterparts, in popularity. Once a niche genre only talked about among small circles on the internet, indie games are now regular features on most popular gaming outlets, with some even dedicating whole segments to spotlighting the rising stars of the indie gaming scene.

Otome Games Of the Decade

My 10 Otome Games of the Decade

The end of 2019 marks the end of a decade, and everyone seems to be reflecting on the past 10 years, with their various lists and videos. So I decided to jump on the bandwagon too and reflect on the past 10 years in otome games. Since I didn’t keep up with my Japanese language studies, I’m limited to English localizations (and fan patches), so I can’t speak for the JP only releases.

A few months back I wrote a Beginners Guide to Otome Games post on character archetypes (here’s a link to the thing: A Beginners Guide to Otome Games: Part 3 – Common Character Archetypes), where I broke down some of the most common character archetypes in otome games.

Questionable Otome Games

It’s Okay Because “Romance” – Otome Games With Questionable Storylines

Otome games offer women (and men) a fantasy romance experience of their dreams, but sometimes they stretch the limits of “fantasy” and delve into some questionable territory. These games play around with your suspension of disbelief, dropping you head first into scenarios that most of us would find downright frustrating if they happened to us in real life.

Swipe Right: Otome Guys I’d Totally Date in Real Life

Otome games are all about exploring your fantasies, doing things you can’t do in your everyday life. Whether that’s getting sucked into a virtual reality game or fighting alongside the legendary Shinsengumi, in otome games you can be or do whatever you want. The biggest draw of otome games are the love interests, each game gives you your very own harem of hot guys to romance.

Best Otome Games List (1)

The Best Otome Games to Play in English

I’ve been hesitant to write a best otome games list, since they tend to get outdated fairly easily, and with the influx in new otome releases in the west the chances of that happening are pretty high. At Anime Expo 2019, Aksys Games announced quite a few otome game releases between now and 2020, and that’s just one company…

I’m not exactly proud of this, but I suppose I can never truly complain that I don’t have any games to play…

I’ve written about the importance of representation in media quite a few times in the past, I even have a post series dedicated to talking about inclusion and diversity in nerd culture.

The Hakuoki franchise is one of the most successful otome game series, spanning several main series games, spin-offs, a 2010 Studio Deen anime series, manga, and two films. Hakuoki Demon of the Fleeting Blossoms was one of my first introductions to the world of “mainstream” otome games, and with Idea Factory cranking out a new game every few years there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. The most recent English localizations being Kyoto Winds and Edo Blossoms.

Sometimes, you just want a bit of an escape, whether that’s kicking back with a good book or watching that Netflix series everyone’s been raving about, we all have our ways of checking out from reality (if only for a short while). I, myself dabble in quite a few extracurricular activities to get my mind off of my responsibilities, but recently, I have been obsessed with webcomics!

How To Woo an Otome Guy in Five Easy Steps!

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL, it’s been forever since I participated in a tag game so thank you Mel ( Mel in Animeland) for including me in this one. I will admit that when I received the WordPress notification about the tag I started considering which hotties to use for this post and sadly, I had a really hard time narrowing the list down to just five hotties… I mean, I love all my baes and husbandos for different reasons so picking just five… it was a struggle. Also, I’m doing things a bit different with this post, all of my choices will be from games (heavy on the otome baes).

So let’s get this party started…

melanin_monday_5

Melanin Monday: Otome Games/ Visual Novels Featuring Black & Brown Characters

Since this is an otome game blog, I figured at least one of these Melanin Monday posts should be about Black and brown characters in otome games/visual novels. So I compiled a list of games that featured characters with darker skin tones. This isn’t a comprehensive list of every game with dark skinned characters, but it does the trick for now. Also, most of these titles are English language visual novels since they tend to feature more characters of color than Japanese otome games… but, that’s a discussion for another day.

Melanin Monday: Six Sensational Black Superheroes You Should Know

As a Black woman and self proclaimed nerd it really means a lot to me when I see positive images of my people in media. There are so many hurtful stereotypes and images about Black and brown skinned individuals out there and it breaks my heart, so I decided to throw some positive energy out there by combining my love of my brown skin and my love of all things nerdy… two things that have never been mutually exclusive in my heart. I am and will always be a Black Nerd… or Blerd!  So, for this week’s Melanin Monday post I’m spotlighting six spectacular Black superheroes!!

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 (I might be persuaded to continue the series, if interest is high enough), where I talk about Black and Brown skinned characters in anime, manga, video games, etc. Last week I switched things up a bit, with an op-ed like piece on the negative portrayals of black characters in anime and I’m not gonna lie, it wound up being pretty ranty! So for this week’s post, I wanted to transition to something a bit more chill…

Melanin Monday: My Top 5 Favorite Black Female Anime Characters

Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, it’s Black History Month here in the States, and I wanted to do something to celebrate it here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! As a Black nerd, I love it when I see characters that look like me in anime, on tv, and in video games. But, more times than not, they’re reduced to side characters or insulting stereotypes, so I want to use this month to highlight a few outstanding black and brown skinned characters. So every Monday from now until the end of the month, will be hence forth known as Melanin Monday!! As of right now this is just a one month thing, but if you guys like it, I might be persuaded to extend it!

A Year in Games: My Favorite Games of 2016

First, I’m baaaaack! Well, sort of… this is one of the two year end posts I told you all I’d be writing, I’m just posting it a day early since I’ll be on a plane back to DC on the 30th…

A little while ago, my dear friend Leafy asked me if I planned on doing a top games list for 2016 and at the time I gave her what I thought was a pretty solid, Nah… I’m terrible with lists and schedules so I go out of my way to avoid them when I can. But, as we got closer to the end of the year I found myself thinking about all the games I’d played throughout the year; the good, the bad, and the meh titles and before I knew it this post kind of wrote itself! So here I am, a few days before the start of a new year running through my favorite games of 2016…

With Halloween less than a week away, I figured why not write a post about a few spooky fun otome games to get you all in the mood… Now, I will admit that not all of these are horror games, but each one has something Halloween-y about them. Maybe it’s a supernatural romance or maybe it takes place in a creepy fantasy realm or maybe the game takes place on Halloween, either way you’re in for a treat!

My Top 5 Best Mobile Otome Games

This is second and final post of my Best and Worst Mobile Otoge post series! If you want to know what my picks for the Worst Mobile Otome Games were check out the first post, HERE.  I know it’s been a while since the first post and for that all I can say is… My bad. I’ve been too busy with real life and other reviews to write get back to writing this post. And honestly, it’s a lot easier to choose games that I disliked over games that I liked. So, I’m pretty picky when it comes to what games I play, and more importantly which games I spend my money on so this list was kind of hard to narrow down. I tried to choose a diverse set of games, but as I said before I’m picky.

Worst Mobile Otome Games

My Top 5 Worst Mobile Otome Games

So I had a lot of requests for a Best and Worst Mobile Otoge list, but I’ve been too busy with school and reviews to write anything before now. So I finally made a little time in my schedule to write this post. Originally this was going to be one giant post, but I decided to break it down to two separate posts (gonna milk this as long as I can).

Best Voltage Inc Games

Top 5 Best Voltage Games

Voltage Inc has certainly come up with so many amazing games, these are the cream of the crop the games I could play over and over again without getting bored. This is part two of a suggested post series, for the first part go, HERE. So this was a hard list to come up with, I enjoy different aspects of each and every Voltage Inc game for different reasons. These games are on here because of my feelings about the entire game, and in no way a reflection of the individual characters in the game.

Worst Voltage Inc Games

Top 5 “Worst” Voltage Inc Games

Voltage Inc has certainly come up with so many amazing games, but, there are some that just don’t quite hit the mark. I don’t hate them per se, they’re just not the best. So this isn’t so much a list of games that I hate, but more a list of games that could be better. So this was a hard list to come up with, I enjoy different aspects of each and every Voltage Inc game for different reasons. These games are on here because of my feelings about the entire game, and in no way a reflection of the individual characters in the game. So in short, I may like certain characters in each of the games on the list, but the overall game not so much.

But there were a chosen few manga titles that made me go… WTF is this?

My Top 10 Favorite Generation Three Pokemon

So, it’s June and here we are again with another Pokemon Top 10 list! This time we’ll be covering my top 10 generation III Pokemon! While it was universally panned, upon it’s first release, the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games ushered in a shift in the Pokemon series. Not only where Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald not compatible with the first two generations, but it was the first time you could not catch ’em all, which pissed a lot of people off back then…

gen 2

My Top 10 Favorite Generation Two Pokemon

So Johto is where I started my Pokemon Journey, so this is the generation nearest and dearest to my heart. This is where my love of Pokemon began, and this was probably the hardest list to write for me. So, since today is the day of my graduation, I thought it only fitting to put out this list today! Kind of a Throwback Thursday post!

I absolutely love Pokemon, it has been the mainstay in my life and one of the few things to stand the test of time. Pokemon is a huge nostalgia trip for me. So in honor of the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon, I will be releasing a Top 10 Favorite Pokemon list for each generation of Pokemon.

My Top Five Favorite Yaoi/BL Titles

There is no order, rhyme, or reason to this list…I love all of the series on this list for different reasons, so it didn’t make sense for me to rank them…*shrugs* I know that there are some great anime and OVAs out there but I want to highlight manga and manwha, so I won’t include any anime/OVA exclusives…

Top 10 Voltage Guys

My Top Ten Favorite Voltage Guys

Okay so this started out as a Top Five List…but I just couldn’t narrow it down to just five guys. So, I scrapped that idea and instead expanded the list to My Top Ten Favorite Voltage Guys. These guys are my personal favorites, and this was by far the hardest list to compile. I like each of these guys for different reasons and it was really hard ranking them from 10 to 1, they are all just so wonderful *sigh*.

Like when your boyfriend of five years breaks up with you, just when everyone you know is getting married or engaged. I mean come on, if I had a dollar for all the engagement notifications on my Facebook timeline…let’s just say I’d never have to budget my otome/otoge spending ever again…

Anime Abridged Series: If it exists, there is a parody of it

The mark of a truly great anime is the existence of a parody. Kind of like rule 34, but not nearly as traumatizing.

An abridged series is a shortened version of an existing work of fiction for the express purpose of making fun of it. Books, movies, and television shows can all be made into abridged series, but for the purpose of this post, we will be focusing specifically on anime parodies. Anime abridged series have become the norm, with some shows having several abridged series, of varying quality.
