Announcing A New Collaboration Project – Otome Fans React!!

Hey Hey Guys and Gals, I just wanted to write up a short announcement post about an upcoming project that I am super excited about and I’m finally ready to talk about it officially. I mentioned in my 2020 resolution post that I had two upcoming projects in the works and while the Otome Debates posts are still in the brainstorming phase. However, I’ve been working on another “super secret” project and after talking with my fellow collaborators, we’re ready for the big reveal!! You may even remember seeing my super vague tweet a little while ago, saying that I was working with five individuals— Tomey from Otome Sweetheart, Hazel from Archi-Anime, Voca from Otome Heaven, and Ruby and Pseudofaux from the Otomates Podcast on an “exciting project”…

Taisho x Alice Rises from the Ashes with NEW Steam Release!!

Most of you probably already heard the news, but Taisho x Alice is getting a NEW Steam realease!!

We all remember the E2 Gaming Tragedy of 2017 that produced the delightfully terrible English language release of Primula’s Taisho x Alice. There were a lot of signs that the initial E2 Gaming English release was going to be a shits how, as the “company” had been very lax with marketing and responding to fans on social media. However, even that couldn’t prepare us for the actual release, which was marred by it’s dismal translation and laughable voice acting! Many were outraged by this seeming disregard for quality, and the game became something of a meme, with otome fans adding “Hirigana” and “Katakana” to their twitter handles in mocking tribute to the game’s most memorable translation choices.

*Check out a more detailed account of the 2017 Taisho x Alice Localization over at Figuratively Speaking

But, it seems that 2019 has brought Taisho x Alice back for a second go of things, this time the localization is being handled by Primula’s parent company, Pencil and from what I’ve seen of the Steam page and Twitter, this appears to be a legitimate release. Taisho x Alice has a Steam release date set for November 28, 2019.  The game will feature full Japanese voice acting, and subtitles in Japanese, English, and Simplified Chinese.

It’s Time for a GIVEAWAY!! Super Special Awesome Giveaway 2!!

 

Okay, so I mentioned this awhile ago, but, I never had the chance to make good on my promise until now.  I hit a couple of big milestones over these past few months, 500 followers, a blogging anniversary, and my birthday. But, my blogging has been pretty sporadic so most of them just breezed on by without much fanfare, so I decided to do celebrate everything all at once with a month long giveaway.  During the month of October, I will be holding a giveaway, but, this one will be a little different from the previous giveaways I’ve held, it’ll be a two part giveaway. Also this one is open to all of my followers, so international folks can definitely put their hat in the ring.

Giveaway Part One: Totoro Plushie or Doll of Choice (2)

For the first part of the giveaway, the prizes are a foot tall crochet Totoro plushie, made by me. Yeah, you read that right, a foot tall crochet Totoro plushie (see below)

The second prize is a crochet doll, the winner of this prize can choose to either have a doll made in their likeness or choose a character from a show, film, or some other media. However, I am restricting this to HUMANOID CHARACTERS ONLY! Let me say that again, HUMANOID CHARACTERS ONLY! Do not ask for mecha, suites of armor, dragons, or anything that could possibly exceed the set 7 inch doll height. If for whatever reason you request a doll I can’t make I will ask for an alternate option.

I’ve Kinda Been Neglecting My Blog, Again…

Hey Hey all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers out there, it’s been awhile since I posted anything on this blog (my failed attempt at completing the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge aside) and for that I really don’t have any excuses, I just didn’t feel like writing. I’ve been running this blog for 2 years now and I finally hit that point where I don’t get that itch to write everyday. Don’t worry, I’m not abandoning this blog, I’m just not really playing games as much as I used to and while I still love them, I’m not going to force myself to play a game for the sake of writing reviews. Been there, done that, and it’s no fun.

So, when the mood strikes me, I’ll write a review, if you have a game you want me to check out or review, I strongly urge you to utilize my contact page (I do read all the emails). However, please be patient with me, I work full time during the week at a real estate firm and in my free time I am crocheting dolls for my Etsy Store or procrastinating writing articles for MANGA.TOKYO (I just picked up Blood Blockade Battlefront season 2 for them). Plus, I have shit going on in my real life that needs attending to… *ahem* I mean, I’m out here trying survive adulthood, a difficult task to say the least.

Since, I don’t want this post to just be about my lack of actual content, I will commit to writing at least two posts this week. Now, whether they’ll be reviews or not is still up in the air (chances are one will be), so keep your eyes peeled for those.

I’m also playing around with the idea of doing a post series featuring my various crochet projects, give a bit of insight into my process…. Would you guys be interested in that?
