The Guy I Like is a Sexy Pop Star: Scandal in the Spotlight-Kyohei Rikudoh

So when Voltage”cancelled” Scandal in the Spotlight a few months ago, there was a bit of fan backlash, I mean really, who doesn’t want to date an entire Japanese boy band? So, imagine my surprise when I saw the announcement that Voltage was planning on bringing the app back from the dead!! That almost never happens, when Voltage kills an app that’s it, or at the very least it takes years for them revive it *cough* LOVE LETTER FROM THIEF X *cough* Anyway, so to hype fans up for the revival, Voltage is offering Kyohei Rikudoh’s Main Story, in it’s entirety for FREE until Feb. 2nd! Of course I’d already bought the story ages ago, so this promotion is completely lost on me, but hey, folks should definitely take part in this promotion…it’s not every day Voltage gives a story away for free…

Kyohei.PNG

I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw Kyo, I thought he’d be an arrogant, selfish prick, like all of guys Voltage has a tendency to force on us during their initial app releases… But, Kyohei Rikudoh was nothing like that, in fact Kyo is one of the sweetest Voltage guys out there…

**Disclaimer: This is a SPOILER FREE review, but if you don’t trust my word or you like being surprised, I also wrote a general full game review for Scandal in the Spotlight, HERE! I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc. Please if you are interested in the game, download it  for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area.

Wicked Love- Demo Review

There was a bit of controversy surrounding this game and the developer. After receiving the funds from the Kickstarter campaign the creator stopped responding to backer messages and took down all of the sites associated with the project. Wicked Love is believed to permanently canceled. 

Wicked Love is an upcoming GxB/GxG supernatural romance visual novel from indie English developers Spirit Kinder Games. The game blends elements of various underworld mythos with that of the biblical seven deadly sins, for a wholly unique story of love, desire, and adventure.  Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Steam, however for the time being the demo is only available for Windows. The demo is pretty short covering roughly 30 minutes of gameplay.

wicked lovers cg 1.png

So this is a special collaboration demo review that I’m doing with my bestie, Bishie! She runs a phenomenal Let’s Play channel over on YouTube and in honor of her reaching 100+ subscribers, we decided to do double reviews… She’d do an LP on YouTube and I’d write a review over here on WordPress, you can watch her LP for Wicked Love, HERE! It’s so good, her voices are perfect for all of the characters, so definitely check that out!! So with out further ado, my review of the demo!!

Fangirl Moment: Barack Obama

TGIF! It’s been a long week, but here we are again with another Fangirl Friday!! Last week I covered a hilarious video that spoke to my fangirl heart like no other video before it, and this week I’m going to switch gears a bit. With the inauguration on the horizon, I wanted to pay tribute to the outgoing president, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II.

president_barack_obama

Say what you will about the man and his policies, but at the end of the day he was a class act from his first day to his last and I will truly miss having him as Commander in Chief of the United States of America. So, in this very special Fangirl Moment post, I’m gonna break from my usual topics and bring you all something a bit more real….

The Energetic Delinquent Who Stole My Heart: Bad Boys Do It Better!-Yu Agatsuma

I know I said that Keiichiro’s route would be the last one I played in Bad Boys Do It Better, but then that last Voltage Sale happened and I wound up buying Yu’s main story. I still refuse to buy Akira’s route, I just can’t bring myself to spend money on it, even during a sale, but I couldn’t have been more pleased with Yu’s main story!

Yu.PNG

It didn’t take long for me to fall for Yu, he’s like a sweet puppy, you just want to hold him close and pat his head. Too bad he isn’t interested in romance… Is there room in this basketball idiot’s heart for both you and basketball or will your first love end in heartbreak?

Fangirl Moment: Sexy Anime Boyz

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m doing things a little differently. Usually I pick something I watched or read over the past week and I shine a spotlight on it, but this week I didn’t really watch or read anything… that is until this afternoon, when a dear friend of mine shared something so beautiful, so spectacularly wonderful that I just had to share it!! So this post is dedicated to my dear friend and fellow blogger, Leafy over at Leafさんの夢が。。。

hug.gif

It started innocently enough, two friends catching up, nothing out of the ordinary… and then Leaf showed me something magical! This single video spoke to my fangirl heart like no other video has done before… well, not since LeetStreet Boys’ Imaginary Boys…

Falling for a Cunning Spy: Dangerous Seduction- Asuka Hino

When I first saw that Voltage had skipped the sexy doc’s route I was pissed, I have been waiting for a new route to be released since I finished Arimura’s. So, imagine my surprise when I saw that Voltage decided to release Asuka Hino’s route first!

asuka-1

Asuka Hino was so different from what I imagined, I had this image of him in my head before I started this route and he turned it right on its head… in a good way. I never expected to like this route as much as I did, in fact I was actually thinking of skipping it all together, I’m not really into the whole younger guy thing, but I’m so glad I didn’t!  If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

Fangirl Moment: Does the Flower Blossom?

Happy New Year and TGIF!! This is the first Friday of 2017 and with it comes a brand new Fangirl Moment post!! Since this is the first post of the new year and because I have quite a few new followers, I figured this would be a good time to explain what Fangirl Moment posts are:

Fangirl Moments are a part of a weekly post series where I cover a wide range of topics (books, movies, anime, manga, etc). These posts are relatively short (roughly 500 words), just a short snapshot about the topic of the week and are uploaded every Friday (give or take)… Previous Fangirl Moment posts can be found under the Fangirl Moments tab on the top menu, organized by type (or just click the tab for the master list). 

So now that that’s out of the way… *ahem* I thought long and hard about what I wanted to cover this week and after much deliberation and many sleepless nights I decided to go with… Oh who am I kidding? I don’t really plan these posts out! 😛 This time around, I decided to go with a BL manga that I bought over the Christmas Break, Does the Flower Blossom? (Hana wa Saku ka) by Shoko Hidaka.

20170105_120836

I’m still waiting on my copy of volume 3…

Does the Flower Blossom? is a five volume slice of life boys love manga, that follows the budding relationship between a mature office worker and a young artist. This manga series is licensed in English by Juné, please support the author and purchase the volumes when they become available in your area!

A Very Important Date- Demo Review

A Very Important Date  is an upcoming Alice in Wonderland themed visual novel from indie developers Naive Sprites.  Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The developers are also working on getting the game greenlit for Steam. The demo covers the Prologue and the first three chapters of Gwyn and Emil’s routes, for a total of 6 chapters total, which amounts to roughly three to four hours of gameplay. So with just a few hours left in the Kickstarter campaign, I decided to bring you all a review of the demo version of the game!

I should stress that this is a loose adaptation, and that while Naive Sprites borrows many elements from Carroll’s iconic story, AVID is a wholly original work that promises to breathe new life into the popular tale.

Bacchikoi-BL Game Review

Edit: In October of 2015 Black Monkey Pro disbanded, so Bacchikoi and all of their other content is no longer available for purchase, but feel free to still give this review a read! 

Bacchikoi is an 18+ PC BL visual novel from Black Monkey Pro an international BL artist circle. The game tells the story of a first year transfer student, Toshu Kanada, after he joins the baseball team at his new school. There he meets his new teammates, Ichiru Yanai and Masaru Nakahara and the trio become fast friends. But, as he spends more time with his new friends, new feelings start to develop, suddenly Toshu’s life becomes much more exciting!

There are two versions of the game: the Uncensored version which is $39.99 and the Censored version which is $17.99. So, if you are interested in the game, I strongly urge you to purchase it from Black Monkey directly. There is also an expansion pack which focuses on the sexual exploits of the team’s coach Genji… If you want to read my thoughts about the Expansion Pack, check out my review, HERE!

*Disclaimer: I don’t own the images used in this review, all CGs and screenshots belong to Black Monkey. Since this game is NSFW there will be some NSFW images after this point. I tried my best to hide some of the naughty bits, but… *shrugs* you’ve been warned!

Fangirl Moment: Haikyuu Season 3

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday!! So this week I’m going to return to a series I covered in a previous Fangirl Moment post…. Haikyuu! If you’ve seen my twitter lately, you’ll know that one post was not enough for this amazing series!! So, I’m back with more volleyball induced fangirling with this week’s post about Haikyuu Season 3!

2016-12-12 (12).png

This pic shows the emotional stages I went through while watching season 3 of Haikyuu…

The entire ten episode season covered the final qualifying match for the Spring High Tournament, between Karasuno High and the current national champion team Shiratorizawa. I was literally on the edge of my seat throughout every episode, and the pay off was better than I could have ever dreamed!!

**This post will contain spoilers for Season 3 of Haikyuu, so read at your own risk!**

Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces)-Demo Review

If ya’ll will remember back to my doomed Summer Blogging Plans post, I was supposed to play another game by Poison Apple Tales called, War: Valentines Edition, but like all things, I got distracted and that game kind fell through the cracks. So, when Dreamgazer contacted me a little while ago about the beta demo for their new and improved title, Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces), I knew I had to find a way to fit it into my schedule!

 

It took me a month, but I finally got around to playing this game and I must say, I am impressed with the sheer scope of this demo! Upon it’s release, Beauty and the War will be available for PC (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and will be completely free!

The Man of My Dreams is a Horse: My Horse Prince-First Thoughts & Impressions

The internet is home to some truly bizarre stuff, so when I saw images of handsome man’s head superimposed on a horse’s body, I laughed along with the rest of you all and didn’t really think much of it… In fact, I think I assumed it was some ridiculous fan-made creation. So, when I found out that not only was this not a hoax, but a very real otome game called Uma no Prince-sama (renamed My Horse Prince for the English localization), I didn’t know how to feel.

I’m no stranger to strange animal dating games, they’re everywhere, from free mobile apps like Animal Boyfriend to commercial otoge like  Hatoful Boyfriend and Dandelion~ Wishes Brought to You, there are no shortage of human/animal titles on the market. Hell, I quite enjoyed Hatoful Boyfriend, so I figured the leap from pigeons to horses shouldn’t have been such a big deal… right?!

Falling for a Cold Hacker: Dangerous Seduction- Yasumi Arimura

So it’s no secret that this was the guy I was most looking forward to pursuing in the game… I have a thing for the cold, emotionless characters. Maybe it’s the challenge of breaking down their walls that sets my fangirl heart aflame or maybe I’m secretly a masochist…

thumbnail_img_4452

Whatever the reason, Yasumi Arimura had my heart from the first time I saw that cold expressionless mug in the prologue! But what really sold me on this guy was the masterful way he hurled insults…he had me at “dumbass”… I kid. This route was a roller coaster ride of emotions from start to finish, and even now I don’t know if I’ll be able to recover. If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

Fangirl Moment: Arthur

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a TV show that I absolutely loved as a kid! I used to watch this show every single day, both before and after school, and a few days ago, I found myself binge watching the first few seasons on YouTube… I’m talking about the children’s show, Arthur!

I’m in my mid 20’s now, well outside of the show’s target demographic, but I still can’t help but love this inquisitive 8 year old aardvark and his friends in the fictional town of Elwood City!

Falling for an Arrogant Sniper: Dangerous Seduction- Masaharu Ryuzaki

First I should probably say that I don’t usually go for the arrogant types that Voltage seems to be hellbent on shoving down our throats all the time. In fact I tend to avoid them all together. Full blown jerks tend to rub me the wrong way, but somehow I found myself playing Masaharu’s route anyway…

masa-snippet

I’m going to try and be fair with this review, but like I said… I’m not a fan of guys like Masaharu. This route took me a lot longer to play than I originally intended and that’s because I spent most of my time shouting expletives at my poor innocent iPad…  If you want a general overview of Dangerous Seduction, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and includes links to the other character reviews I wrote for the game.

[First Thoughts] Dangerous Seduction

There I was minding my own business, browsing Twitter, when I saw that Voltage had finally decided to release a brand new app, Dangerous Relationship! So I immediately dropped everything and downloaded the game from the App store!!

So first things first, the art is a bit different from their other games and I have to admit that when I first saw it I wasn’t really a fan of it, but it grew on me… Okay, I’m lying, I’m still on the fence about the art style, but the premise more than makes up for that!

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc. Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area.

Fangirl Moment: Dengeki Daisy

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a manga by one of my absolute favorite mangaka. No, seriously, I have read just about everything by this author, but this is one of my favorites… I’m talking about the shoujo manga Dengeki Daisy by Kyousuke Motomi!

dengeki-daisy

Check out my awesome photography skills…

I have been periodically buying all of the volumes for this manga over the years and I’m just missing the last six volumes… That’s how much I love this series, I actually bought it! I don’t waste money on sub-par manga!

*Also, I am not done with this series, SO KEEP THE SPOILERS TO YOURSELVES! I’m serious!*

TinyWars- Beta Demo Review

So, a little while ago, I was asked to participate in a beta test for an upcoming anime themed tower defense game from Bizurk Software, TinyWars! The game has been in development since 2015 and will be available for PC and mobile devices upon it’s release.

I’ve played a few tower defense mobile games before, but they were never more than a way to pass the time on the commute to and from school. So when I was asked to participate in the beta testing for the game I didn’t expect much, but TinyWars proved to be both fun and challenging!

Love is in the Forecast: Storm Lover Kai Review

I am a sucker for high school romance stories, no matter how cheesy and cliche they are, I always find myself captivated by the innocence of the stories. On the surface Storm Lover Kai is your typical high school romance fluff; girl meets boy, girl dates boy. But, there is so much more to this game than that, the player has the power to craft a love story all their own. You can be a monogamous Mary Sue or a heartbreaker, in Storm Lover Kai, the choice is up to you!

In 2012, D3Publisher released Storm Lover Kai, a remake of their 2010 hit Storm Lover. The game boasts improved graphics, more CGs, and a slightly expanded plot. But, since I’ve never played the original Storm Lover, all of these improvements are kind of lost on me. So my opinion of the game is based solely on SLK. On the surface it’s just like any other High School stat building, event based otome game, relentlessly stalk your crush until he succumbs to your girlish charm.

Fangirl Moment: Yuri!!! On Ice

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! After cancelling last week’s FM post, I am back in full form, with a fun anime related Fangirl Moment write up. But, first I should probably explain what Fangirl Moments are, since I’ve gotten few new followers recently… *ahem* Fangirl Moment posts are short weekly posts that cover a wide range of subject matter (usually anime, manga, books, or films). I choose the topic at random and they always come out on Fridays, if you are curious about my previous FM posts, click HERE, for the Master list or use the top menu to view posts by topic!

So this week’s post is about an anime series that I’ve recently started watching, an anime series that has been the biggest ship tease I have ever seen… I’m talking about *drumroll* Yuri!!! On Ice…

yuri.jpg

So, I guess now would be the time to admit that when I first saw the announcement for this series a few months ago, I was actually planning on not watching it at all… In general, I’m not a huge fan of sports anime, with Haikyuu being the only exception, so when a friend from Line demanded I watch the series with her, I wasn’t very enthusiastic…

Can You Love the Real Me?- Liar! Uncover the Truth: Mr. Right Lovers Route Main Story Review

When I finished writing up all of the Liar Routes, I said I’d write reviews for the Lovers Routes too. Well here I am finally making good on that promise! Actually I was waiting for Voltage to release Mr. Right’s Lovers Route before I started in on these reviews. I just had to know if there was any truth to that plot twist at the end of the 9th Liar arc… and boy did Voltage go out with a bang on this one!!  I wasn’t ready for all of the feels!

Since this is the first Lovers Route review, I want to clarify some things… *ahem* Unlike the Liar Main Stories, the Lovers Routes are not free. Let me repeat that for the folks in the back; THE LOVERS ROUTES ARE NOT FREE! Lovers Routes can be purchased with coins, which players can purchase with cash!! The 12 chapter Main Stories cost 800 coins while the 3 chapter Epilogues cost 450 coins, which if you get both is roughly $8.00 total. But, Voltage has been giving away free daily login coins so if you horde coins you can purchase stories without spending any cash.

Now that that is out of the way, I should also mention that there are only FIVE Lovers Routes, one each for Liars 6-9 and one for Mr. Right. So, if you want to romance one of the earlier liars, you are plum out of luck! If you want a spoiler free review of Liar! Uncover the Truth, click… HERE! If you want to read more about Mr. Right from the Liar main stories, click right, HERE!!

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc. Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area. Also this post will contain spoilers, do with that what you will…**

[First Thoughts]Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons

This game was originally on my Summer Game Playlist, but one thing led to another and I never got around to actually playing it before the end of the summer. If I’m being honest, I never intended to get through that list in the first place since I have a habit of getting distracted by new games easily… *cough* Liar Uncover the Truth *coughSo, now that I’ve finished wallowing in mobile otoge hell, I’ve finally decided to revisit some of the games from my poor neglected backlog (so expect many more First Thoughts posts in the coming days and weeks). The first game on the agenda is Aeon Dream Studios’s (aka Star Maiden Games) debut title, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons.

Okay, so first things first, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons was released back in February and while the prologue and the first chapters of each route are free, the Main Stories and Epilogues are $4.99 and $1.99 respectively. There are five romanceable characters, but as of this post only three guys have been released (number four, Takumi will be released later on this month)…

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Aeon Dream Studios. Please if you are interested in the game, purchase the game either through itch.io or through Steam!!

[Full Game Review] English Otome- Always Remember Me

Released in 2012, Always Remember Me is a PC English visual novel, produced by Winter Wolves. The game follows a young woman who finds herself having to win back her boyfriend after he loses his memories after a motorcycle accident.

Like I said in my C14 Dating review a little while ago, I am a huge fan of the English language game developer, Winter Wolves. In fact their games along with the Voltage Inc mobile otoge, were my first introduction to the world of otome games. So when I heard that Winter Wolves was working on, Never Forget Me (which you guys can purchase, HERE) the sequel to one of their first English otome games Always Remember MeI just knew I had to go back and review the first game. So whether you’ve already played this game and are in need of a refresher before Never Forget Me is released, or someone new to the game, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

**So the disclaimer… I don’t own these images or characters, they belong to Winter Wolves. The thoughts and opinions presented in this post are my own, it’s fine if you don’t agree with me, but be respectful when commenting (I’m open to all opinions here). You can purchase the game, HERE or on Steam, HERE.

Fangirl Moment: Sherlock

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! Okay so last week after I saw Doctor Strange, I found myself craving more Benedict Cumberbatch… so, I opened up Netflix and binge watched all three seasons of the BBC series, Sherlock. I’ve seen mixed reviews about the series; people either love it or they hate, so I really didn’t know what to expect from the show…

2016-11-10 (3).png

#RelationshipGoals

I didn’t expect to like this series as much as I did, but it only took me one episode and I was hooked! I’d be lying if I didn’t say Cumberbatch was the main reason I started watching the show, but the Martin Freeman’s facial expressions are what really kept me watching… I kid!

That Guy is My Soulmate: Liar! Uncover the Truth- Mr. Right

We started this journey with ten “perfect” guys, each more impressive than the last…But, nine of the ten are dirty rotten liars, despicable men with no qualms about bending the truth to suit their needs… (The guys are not in order)

We unmasked nine liars, exposing them for the scum that they are: Mama’s Boys, Gambling Addicts, Fanboys, Mobsters, a Divorcee, Scam Artists, Raging Lunatics, Cheaters, and even a  “Drug Addict”! It’s been a long road and there’s only one man left standing…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

Since not everyone that reads my blog has finished the game I ask that you all keep your comments as spoiler free as humanly possible rather than stating the name of the liars instead refer to them by their liar number (ie. Liar X) and for the victorious man, “Mr. Right”… Thanks in advance! 😀

That Guy is a Divorcee: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 9th Liar

Here it is the very last liar! We started this journey with ten guys that seemed too good to be true… wealthy businessmen, international sports stars, and more. But, the thing is when something appears to be too good to be true, chances are that it is… Nine of the ten are dirty rotten liars, despicable men with no qualms about bending the truth to suit their needs… (The guys are not in order)

We unmasked eight liars, exposing them for the scum that they are: Mama’s Boys, Gambling Addicts, Fanboys, Mobsters, Scam Artists, Raging Lunatics, Cheaters, “Drug Addict”, and now we’ve made it to the final stretch! It’s been a long road, but we are finally down to the last two contenders…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

Fangirl Moment: Doctor Strange

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I am super late… like a whole day late with my Fangirl Friday post, though technically it’s still Friday where I live. But, that’s besides the point, the reason I’m so late with this post is because I decided that I wanted to write about something super current. For this week’s post, I’m covering the newest film in the MCU lineup, Doctor Strange!!

I had no idea what to expect when I walked into the theater, because aside from seeing one Doctor Strange animated film on Cartoon Network years ago, I don’t know much about the guy… However, that didn’t stop me from getting a ticket to the film in 3D…

[First Thoughts] This World Unknown

So with all of the Liar! Uncover the Truth reviews I’ve been writing lately, it might be hard to believe that I’ve also been playing another game… Yup, I have been playing Ebi-Hime‘s most recent commercial visual novel, This World Unknown! Shocking, I know, Liar! has literally been taking up all of my time lately, but in between Liars I have been slowly (I mean snail’s pace slow) making my way through this game! First, let me clarify that I’ve only managed to make it through one route… ya’ll, this game is much more time consuming than I originally anticipated… I started this game at the beginning of October and it is now  November and I’ve only completed one route!

When I first saw this game I thought this would be a cute, short game to kill time with while I figured out what my next big game would be after Norn9. But, one thing lead to another and Norn9 was put on an indefinite hold and this game was put on the back burner after I got hooked on Liar! Well, now that I’m almost done with Liar! I’ve been able to devote more time to TWU, but not as much as I would have liked especially now that I’ve started working… *sigh* The full game review is still a little ways off, but I still wanted to get my thoughts on the game out there before I get too busy or I get distracted by another game again….

That Guy is a Scam Artist: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 8th Liar

Finally, Voltage has decided to go back to their roots with Liar 8! After the rather tame lies of the last two (by all means disagree with me if you want), I was expecting something much more forgivable, but nope, the 8th Liar is a despicable dude (and I love it)! This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Sotaro ShigaItaru Yuikawa and Azusa Kurono; and I really, really, really did not see this one coming… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading! So without further ado, the 8th Liar, Azusa Kurono.

Fangirl Moment: The Tailypo: A Ghost Story

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! Halloween is on Monday, so I decided to choose something that scared the crap out of me… As a kid this book was the cause of many sleepless nights, *ahem* so this week I’m covering the children’s book, The Tailypo: A Ghost Story retold by Joanna C. Galdone and illustrated by Paul Galdone.

tailypo

Yeah…yeah, laugh it up! Ya’ll don’t understand how horrifying this story was to little elementary school me… I had to sleep with the lights on for weeks after I first read this book, because I started having nightmares about the Tailypo coming to get me. But, instead of just returning the book to the library like any sane person would do, I decided to keep checking the damn thing out like a dummy. Yes, you read that right, I kept checking the book out year after year, even though the story terrified me! I was a glutton for punishment… So, I want to share with you all the story that haunted my childhood nightmares!

Voltage is really pulling out the big guns with these last few Liars! We’ve had an adulterer, a gambler, a gangster, and now a drug addict?!  I’m actually afraid to see what Liars 8 and 9 have in store for us… This time around there were four potential Liars to choose from, Sotaro ShigaKazumi KagamiItaru Yuikawa and Azusa Kurono; and I can honestly say that I thought it was another guy… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

*sobs* I’m sorry ya’ll but this liar reveal hit me kind of hard, I really wanted him to stick around a bit longer! *weeps* Give me a moment… *ahem* So somehow or another Liar! turned into an episode of Married to the Mob and as much as I want to deny it, this liar was kind of obvious in hindsight. This time around there were five potential Liars to choose from, Sotaro Shiga, Haruichi MamiyaKazumi KagamiItaru Yuikawa and Azusa Kurono…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

Fangirl Moment: Spirited Away

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a one of my favorite animated films. I’m talking about the critically acclaimed 2001 animated film, Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi).

That Guy is a Married Man: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 5th Liar

I didn’t think anything could top the 4th Liar trying to sell the MC to pay off his gambling debts, but Voltage managed to surprise me yet again!. This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Kunio Muroi, Haruichi Mamiya, and Kazumi Kagami; and I can say with all honesty, that I did not see this one coming at all… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

That Guy is a Gambling Addict: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 4th Liar

So far the MC has had to deal with mama’s boys, raging lunatics, creepy fanboys, and now a gambling addict! After the shenanigans of the other Liars I was prepared for the worst and Voltage exceeded my expectations…this guy is despicable! This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Keima Katagiri, Sotaro Shiga, and Azusa Kurono. The minute I saw the title I knew exactly who this Liar was, hell I knew that he was a liar back in the 2nd Liar arc, the cheap bastard! If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

That Guy’s a Creepy Fanboy: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 3rd Liar

After dealing with the rage-aholic in the 2st Liar arc, I was already on endge when I started the 3rd Liar arc. This time around there were four potential Liars to choose from, SotaroJoeItaru, and Kunio; and I can say with all honesty, that I did not see this one coming at all, it was dumb luck that I picked the right liar this time around…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading! So without further ado, the 3rd Liar, Joe Yazawa.

So I was informed by a lovely reader from Tumblr, that including the Liar’s name in the title is a tad bit spoilery….and after I calmed down a bit and thought about it, I realized they had a point. So, I won’t include the names in any of the future review titles.

My Lover is an Antisocial God: Star Crossed Myth- Krioff Review

I have been sucked into Voltage Hell yet again… Right after I finished writing my review for Dui, Voltage up and released the main story and epilogue for yet another Department of Punishments god, Krioff. And we all know that I’m a fan of the Punishments gods, so without any hesitation I dropped the $3.99 on Krioff’s main story…

Krioff 1.PNG

Krioff is the stoic god of Aries and despite his rather…um, cold personality, he is by far one of the kindest gods in the Department of Punishments. Don’t get me wrong, he’s no Dui, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a big ‘ol softie underneath all the thorns! Plus, I think Krioff is my ideal god… I kind of broke the Ending Meter with all the right Blessed End choices on my first playthrough lol…

My Lover is a Conflicted God: Star Crossed Myth-Dui Review

Dui won the poll so I’m writing the review! Rejoice, because without the poll I probably would have never gotten around to play this route in Star Crossed Myth… I know I’m going to get some flack for this, but I had zero interest in ever playing this route…ever. Call me shallow or superficial, but Dui just looked so boring. So, when you guys voted for him to be my next voltage route, I was a little disappointed, but that was before I played this amazing route!

IMG_2710

Dui is the sweet as pie, cherry loving god of Gemini who was branded with his mark of sin after killing a fellow god. But, despite the severity of his crimes, Dui isn’t a bad guy, he’s an absolute dream with a bit of a dark side…

That Guy has Anger Issues: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 2nd Liar Toya Kashi

After the crazy borderline incest in the 1st Liar arc, I had no idea what to expect from the 2nd Liar arc. This time around there were three potential Liars to choose from, Keima Katagiri, Toya Kashi, and Itaru Yuikawa; and I can say with all honesty, that I did not see this one coming, at least at first…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!

That Guy is a Mama’s Boy: Liar! Uncover the Truth- 1st Liar

I wanted to respect Voltage’s wishes to keep spoilers to a minimum so I waited a bit, before doing individual character reviews… But, it’s been a few days and most of the folks who want to play the game have pretty much already started playing…  So I figured it was finally safe to start posting these… If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!  So first up is the 1st Liar, Shuto Matsuki!!

Fangirl Moment: Luke Cage

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! I know I’m supposed to be on break, but I just had to write about this show…it would be criminal not to! This week I’m covering the Netflix original series that has me craving a hot cup of coffee! Yes, ladies and gents, I’m covering Marvel’s Luke Cage!!

luke-cage-2

If you all didn’t already know this, I’m a huge fan superhero films and comics. So when I saw that Netflix was teaming up with Marvel to bring another comic book hero to the small screen I was ready. But, when I saw that they were going to give the Blaxploitation era superhero, Luke Cage (aka. Power Man) his own series, let’s just say the premiere couldn’t come soon enough!

Falling in Love with the Lie: Liar! Uncover the Truth-Review

liar

So, Voltage Inc. just put out a new free to play mobile app, Liar: Uncover the Truth, which is a cross between their previous titles, My Forged Wedding and True Love Sweet Lies wrapped in a Phoenix Wright bun. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of freemium games and apps, so I was planning to pass this game up, but like always curiosity got the better of me and here I am once again entangled in Voltage’s romantic snare. I know I am on break, but I couldn’t resist posting this review… *shrugs* I really didn’t expect to fall in love with this game!

This is like Mystic Messenger 2.0, Liar uses some of the same interfaces and techniques that made MM so popular, without the real time aspect…and it works!Snoop through your lover’s social media pages, and press him for info to uncover the truth, is your man a liar or is he telling the truth?

My Lover is the Leader of the Shinsengumi-Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Isami Kondo

If you guys remember, Isami Kondo was one of the routes I was most looking forward to in this game! My usual go to are tsunderes and megane intellectuals, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself drawn to the mature types more and more. Well, in Era of Samurai: Code of Love the good humored Shinsengumi leader, Isami Kondo definitely fits the bill!

Isami Kondo wasn’t a playable character in Hakuouki, so I didn’t quite know what to expect this time around. So, I was basing everything on his portrayal in the prologue and in each of the other routes in the game… and you know what, Kondo is pretty consistent across the board.

I’ve seen the future of gaming and it gave me motion sickness: Samsung Gear VR-Unboxing & Impressions

A few months ago, my old Galaxy S5 finally decided it had had enough of my abuse and decided to get its revenge… I’m talking, random reboots and dropped calls every hour on the hour, so after the umpteenth reboot I decided it was time to get a new phone. I typically stick to the Galaxy line of Samsung phones, because they’ve served me well in the past and I’d had my previous phone for quite some time before it started wigging out. They’re solid phones so I figured I’d just get another Galaxy. At the time, every mobile service provider was advertising pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge. I was already a fan of the line so it wasn’t really a hard sell, but T-mobile decided to sweeten the deal by offering a couple of extra perks. At the time, every pre-order came with a free Netflix subscription for one year and a free Samsung Gear VR… I almost broke my laptop in my excitement!

So You Wanna Chat with Hot Guys… There’s an App for That: Mystic Messenger- First Thoughts

Mystic Messenger is a free to play real time mobile game from Cheritz, the company behind PC otome games Dandelion- Wishes brought to you and Nameless- The one thing you must recall. In the game while looking for a new game in the app store, the MC (you) accidentally download a strange messenger app. Upon opening the app, you are immediately pulled into a chat with a mysterious user named Unknown, who instructs you to go to a certain address. Once there your phone logs in to a secret chat room filled with hot guys and one super awesome gal (outside of Zen’s route). From there you are asked to join the R.F.A., their secret party planning group.

I want to get this out while it’s still fresh in my head. I just cleared Zen’s Good End on my first playthrough of the game. I’ve spent 11 sleepless nights on this game and I have a lot to say about the game…

Fangirl Moment: Stranger Things

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a show that has recently been blowing up my various social media timelines and dashboards. Today’s post is about the insanely addictive Netflix original series, Stranger Things!

stranger-things-2

For weeks, everyone that I knew would rave about what a great show this was and how I just had to watch it… So a week or two ago, my bf and I hunkered down and watched the entire series on Netflix! We watched all eight episodes, which given our hectic schedules, too a few days to coordinate. But, oh my gosh, I get it now! I totally see what all the hype was about and I can’t wait for season 2!!

My Last First Kiss: It’s A Date- Ichiya Misono

Here we are with my second attempt at an epilogue review to hold you guys over while I work on some main reviews. This story takes place immediately after the events of the Main Story and it focuses on the MC and Ichiya’s transition from “enemies” to lovers. The story serves as the epilogue to the Main Story and consists of three chapters. It also comes with it’s own special image.

My Lover is an Ice Cold Criminal: Astoria Fates Kiss- Hydra Season 2

It’s taken me awhile, but I’m finally jumping back into the world of Greek gods and godly monsters. While season 1 focused on developing the relationship between Hydra and the MC, Hydra’s season 2 stories focused on the MC and Hydra’s attempts to maintain the relationship. Over the course of the season we see the pair tackle obstacle after obstacle as they learn to trust in themselves and each other.

hydra season 2.png

It’s been a few months since the Hercules incident, and the MC’s life is definitely on the up and up, both professionally and privately. That is until our plucky MC takes a case that will shake Olympus to its very core! If you want to see what I had to say about Hydra’s Season 1, click HERE!

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney- Game Review

Since the sixth Ace Attorney game, Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice is set to be released in the US on September 8th I decided to go back and replay all of the Phoenix Wright main series games!  I dunno if I’ll be able to get all the reviews out before the 8th, but I’ll sure as heck give it my best shot!!

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban in Japanis a 2005 Nintendo DS single-player adventure visual novel developed by Capcom and the first game in the Ace Attorney series. Prior to it’s Nintendo DS release, Ace Attorney was originally released exclusively for the Gameboy Advance in Japan.

Cinderella Phenomenon-Demo Review

Cinderella Phenomenon is an upcoming English otome game that follows a young cold-hearted princess, Lucette, who suddenly finds herself the unwitting victim of a terrible curse. Magic and fairytales collide in this impressively entertaining riches to rags story from Dicesuki, the developers behind the free otome game Locked Heart. Follow Lucette as she learns an important lesson in humanity while attempting to break her curse… and maybe find love along the way.

Prior to the events of the game, there were two crystals that maintained the balance in the world: the Crystallum Lucis and Crystallum Tenebrarum. Each crystal possessed great power, so they were each entrusted to equally powerful magical beings in order to contain their power. The Fairies were given the Crystallum Lucis, which drew its power from positive emotions; while the Witches were given the Crystallum Tenebrarum, which drew its power from negative emotions. Over time people began to associate witches with dark magic and began persecuting them. In retaliation the High Witch created the Fairytale Curse.  Setting in motion a series of events that would have far reaching effects on not only our sullen princess, but all of humanity.

Fangirl Moment: Pokemon 2000

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going to talk about one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid (and now too)! Today’s post is all about the second Pokemon film, Pokémon: The Movie 2000: The Power of One or Pokemon 2000 for short!

pokemon 2000 box art

This has and shall forever be my favorite Pokemon movie, and before you all start in on how great Pokemon The First Movie is… I know it’s great, I love it too, but I like Pokemon 2000 slightly more and that’s that. Besides you should know this already, but despite technically being from the “Gen I” generation of Pokemon fans, I started my Pokemon journey in Johto. If you want to read more on that, I wrote a whole post about it, HERE.

Seiyuu Danshi- Demo Review

Seiyuu Danshi is all about choice! In this upcoming 18+ BL visual novel the player takes control of an amateur seiyuu (voice actor) who likes to take things at his own pace. But, years of slacking off have finally caught up to our lazy protagonist (MC-kun) and he finds that his job is on the line… that is unless he wins the prestigious Seiyuu Awards. Follow MC-kun as he attempts to become one of Japan’s top seiyuus and maybe find love along the way!

It has been some time since the Kickstarter campaign for Seiyuu Danshi wrapped up and I am finally getting around to playing the demo… I’m terrible, I know, but better late than never!

Sleepover- BL Game Review

Edit: A few months ago Black Monkey Pro disbanded, so Sleepover and all of there other content is no longer available for purchase, but feel free to still give this review a read! For the truely adventurous folks out there, I’m sure you can find a copy of the game online somewhere…

Sleepover is an 18+ PC BL visual novel from Black Monkey Pro an international BL artist circle. The game tells the story of Haruyuki Kano, a young man who has secretly been in love with his best friend, Sato Hideaki (Aki) since they were children. Not wanting to ruin their friendship, Kano has done his best to keep his feelings to himself. But when a freak rain storm forces Aki to spend the night at his house, Kano finds himself with a once in a lifetime opportunity. Will Kano finally tell Aki how he feels or will he be content being “just friends”? Whatever you choose, Aki and Kano’s relationship will never be the same again!

You asked for more BL, so here it is… The things I do for my fellow BL/yaoi fans out there… I kid, I actually bought this game a few months ago on a whim, but I never got around to playing it until now. There are two versions of the game: the Uncensored version which is $29.99 and the Censored version which is $14.99. So, if you are interested in the game, I strongly urge you to purchase it from Black Monkey directly. Black Monkey Pro disbanded, the game is no longer available for purchase!

*Disclaimer: I don’t own the images used in this review, all CGs and screenshots belong to Black Monkey. Since this game is NSFW there will be some NSFW images after this point. I tried my best to hide some of the naughty bits, but… *shrugs* you’ve been warned!

[Review] English Visual Novel-The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car

The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car is a newly released Pay-What-You-Want visual novel from Lox Rain (Lorelei, Laiska, and Auro-Cyanide). The game which was created over the span of four days, features two character routes and six endings.

The road is long.

Two strangers sit side by side as night falls over. The car speeds down the open highway.

Without a soul around them, everything seems to slip away. On a journey to no one knows where, all they have is words and time. And that time is dwindling fast.

The shadows are chasing.

Fangirl Moment: Waiting

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going to take a break from the usual Fangirl Moment topics and bring you another book post! For today’s post I’ll be covering one of my favorite books, Waiting by Ha Jin!

waiting.jpg

I originally stumbled upon this book years ago on my high school AP reading list. Back then the prospect of a summer reading list was not very appealing, especially for an AP Literature class.

So, I reluctantly braved the thick Atlanta heat for a trip to my local library, with the dreaded AP reading list in hand. After briefly scanning the list again, I mentally noted the most promising titles and began searching the packed shelves. I emerged with four books: One Hundred Years of Solitude,  The Kite Runner, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Waiting.  I read all of them, except One Hundred Years of Solitude (I fell asleep on that one multiple times), but the book that left the biggest impression on me was Waiting.  Continue reading “Fangirl Moment: Waiting”

Sentimental Trickster- Demo Review

A few weeks ago, Justyna Pustelnik contacted me via Twitter about maybe taking a look at the demo for her upcoming BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster. However, when I received the request I was wrapping up the 30 Day Anime Challenge (and in need of a break), so I wasn’t able to play the demo right away. But, I was able to talk with Justyna through Twitter and after reviewing the Kickstarter campaign, I was able to bang out a Kickstarter Support post for the game.

I originally planned on getting back to the demo after my Blogging Vacation, but one thing led to another and the demo ended up further down on my To Do List than I would have hoped… forgive me! So, I know this is late, but better late than never… right? So, with the Kickstarter winding down, I figured the time was ripe for a demo review in order to generate more buzz for the game as it nears its final days!

Fangirl Moment: Haikyu!!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m going back to my otaku roots a bit, by covering an anime series that was suggested to me by the outstanding Katrina Sade over at Grimmgirl.com! If you have been following my twitter, you know without a doubt that I have been seriously obsessing over the sports anime series Haikyu!!

I’m not really a fan of sports anime, in fact I usually go out of my way to avoid them when I can… So when Kat suggested that I watch Haikyu, let’s just say that I wasn’t expecting much. In fact, the first and last sports anime that I every cared enough about to keep up with was Prince of Tennis and that was years ago. But, along came Haikyu and it just blew everything else out of the water!
