30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 15: Favorite animal sidekick/pet or summoning from any anime

Woohoo, this is the halfway mark!! When I first saw this prompt the first thing I thought was, Oh crap, welp that was quick! I thought I’d blown the whole challenge, I had no idea what the heck I was going to write about. Usually when I watch anime I watch the human characters, I don’t really pay attention to the animal companions… that is unless you count Pokemon, which I feel like is cheating. But then, I did some thinking and then it hit me!

roy is a dog person

I don’t know whether to consider this character a summoning or a sidekick, he’s probably both. He’s a magical guardian with a bit of a sweet tooth, but don’t call him cute! With his small body it’s easy to underestimate his true potential, and let me tell you it’s huge! My pick for my favorite animal sidekick/pet or summoning from any anime is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 14: An Anime that never gets old no matter how many times I watch it

Sometimes you come across an anime that no matter how many times you watch it just never gets old. You know, a show that you can watch five or more times and still find the characters and their stories fresh and exciting.

spongebob tv

I love this series, no matter how many times I re-watch this show it never gets old. Even after knowing how everything turns out, I still end up on the edge of my seat at every single time I watch it, because it is just that good! This is one of the few series that I wish was ongoing. So my pick for an anime that never gets old no matter how much I watch it is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 13: Anime Character that I’m most similar to

Okay so when I saw this prompt I immediately Googled one of those awesome anime quizzes… and I don’t know whether I should be extremely proud of the results or laugh at how ridiculous the whole thing was. Well the quiz said that my anime twin was Vegeta from Dragonball Z… yeah… I don’t think so, Vegeta is a bit more ruthless than I am. So I immediately set out to rectify the situation by offering an alternative candidate for my anime twin.

Ouran Twins

After much deliberation, I finally settled on a character that I felt fit my personality better… This character is about as close to an anime twin as I could get, I’m pretty bad at personal assessments in the first place. So let’s get this show on the road, the anime character that I’m most like is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 12: Saddest Anime Scene

Anime has been known to connect with its viewers in a way that other forms of media don’t always match. I myself have experienced the full gambit of emotions while watching anime, ranging from joy to anger to even a bit of sadness… So when I saw that I had to pick the saddest anime scene, there were a few candidates that came to mind (and yes, one of them was the Ash death scene in Pokemon the First Movie)…

pika cry

But, out of the choices, this scene really hit me in the feels. In fact, this scene hit much closer to home than I’d like to admit. Not only did this scene finalize an already devastating situation, but it added a realism to it that I just hadn’t seen in an anime up until that point. So, my pick for the saddest anime scene is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 11: My Favorite Mecha Anime

Okay, so I have a confession to make… I am not a fan of mecha anime! In fact I can count the number of mecha anime series I’ve seen on one hand and I don’t even need all five fingers either. So, there weren’t very many choices to choose from for this prompt… and let me warn you in advanced, it’s not one of the Gundam anime series.

eeny meeny.gif

Yeah, this choice was a game of Eeny, meeny, miny, moe… Mecha just isn’t my thing, so I apologize to the mecha fans in advance since this isn’t one of those prolific classic mecha series. Instead I picked a rather recent, much more lighthearted (at least in the beginning) series. So my favorite mecha anime series is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 10: My Favorite Fighter Anime

No matter how many years pass and no matter what the current anime trends are, fighter anime always manage to stay relevant! I will admit that I am not a huge fan of fighter anime series, I usually find their repetitive nature boring. But when done right… magic happens!

just right.gif

This was another no brainer, when I think of fighter anime only one title comes to mind! This series inspired several popular fighting titles to date, but it’s a shame that not many people talk about it anymore. There was a little buzz about it when the live action film was released a few years ago, but that film has nothing on this anime. It’s gritty, it’s raw, and gosh darn it this series will put your heart through the ringer! I actually cried at the end of this series… I cried like a baby… so for my favorite fighter anime…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jul. 3rd to Jul. 9th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! The 30 Day Anime Challenge is in full swing, and I hope you all are enjoying it so far! In real life, I have been filling out applications and networking, since I have yet to start my Summer Job….

In other news, Pokemon GO finally came out in the States so I have been getting way more exercise than usual. On the flip side my phone battery life is taking a nose dive while my data usage is through the roof, but it’s totally worth it!

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 9: Best Anime Villain

So, I had a really hard time coming up with an answer to today’s prompt… In fact, I almost decided to skip it altogether, but then a light bulb went off in my head and I knew just which villain I was going to write about!

oh

I’m the type that likes my villains to be completely evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever! I mean, what’s the point of being a villain if you’re going to have a change of heart in the end? I feel like doing that ruins the purpose of a villain, which simply put is oppose his or her protagonist while stepping on as many little people as they can along the way. Well, I think I outdid myself with this pick, this villain is equal parts crazy and equal parts despicable! My pick for best anime villain is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 8: My Favorite Anime Couple

It’s day eight and love is in the air, this time I had to choose my favorite anime couple. Think shy blushes and sweet words… and maybe even a kiss or two! From first loves to old flames, I have seen them all, especially since I’m a lover of all things shoujo. Yes, even the high school romances that I complain so much about! What can I say, I’m in love with love…

fangirling

With so many awesome anime couples out there, you’d think this would be a difficult choice…but nope! This was by far the easiest choice I have made so far for this challenge, when I think of the perfect anime couple this particular pair immediately pops into my head! These guys did romance right, so without further ado, my favorite anime couple is…

Fangirl Moment: Summertime

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! It’s summer break, and what better way to spend the hot summer days than by reading manga. This week I’m going to cover a oneshot  I came across a  few years ago called Summertime.

summertime

Summertime is a 1985 manga oneshot (from the oneshot collection, Dahlia no Obi) written by Yumiko Ooshima. The story follows a young man, who is set to marry his childhood sweetheart, in one week’s time. But when his childhood friend who is supposed to be visiting from Tokyo never shows up, he ventures to Tokyo in search of some answers. What he uncovers will alter his way of life forever.

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 7: My Anime Crush

Asking anime fan to choose just one anime crush is like asking someone to pick a needle in a haystack. Asking an anime fan to choose just one anime crush is like asking a person to choose just one fandom on Tumblr…. I could go on, but the point is choosing one anime crush is not a simple task!

one-does-not-simply-have-one-anime-crush_o_2201157

I have had several anime crushes over the years, each one with their own special charm points and features. So believe me when I say that this was not a decision I took lightly. I spent days trying to figure out which character I would write about for this challenge and every single time the result was the same… So without further delay, here is my anime crush…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 6: Anime I Want To See But I Haven’t Yet

I am terrible at keeping up with anime series, so my watch list is almost as long as my gaming backlog. I usually go long stretches of time without watching anything and then suddenly I get the urge to watch one or two series in a single sitting. After which I go back to blissfully ignoring that anime even existed in the first place.

to do list.gif

So instead of picking one anime I decided to make this into a  list of the top 5 anime series that I haven’t watched but plan on watching eventuallyContinue reading “30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 6: Anime I Want To See But I Haven’t Yet”

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 5: An Anime I’m Ashamed I Enjoyed

Have you ever seen an anime that was so bad that it was good? Those bottom of the barrel anime series that no matter how cliched or how stupid, you just can’t stop watching. The kind of anime you watch alone in the dark with the shutters drawn shut…

tamaki shame.png

Over the years I have seen my fair share of anime, some good and some… I just don’t talk about. So without further ado, for the Day 5 prompt… my pick for an anime that I am ashamed that I liked is….

[News] Upcoming Games from MangaGamer and Aksys

Okay, first I want to apologize for being late with this post! I am currently out of town for the holiday weekend and there is no wifi where I’m at… so I am literally reliving my childhood. It also seems like every time there is a big announcement in the otome community,  I’m away on vacation or something…

Mind you all, I’m still on vacation…I am literally writing this from my Galaxy S7. So forgive me for a few errors/weirdness, as it is hard to post from this thing and I avoid it when I can!

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 4: My Favorite Female Anime Character

First, Happy 4th of July!! Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get on with the rest of the challenge… Somehow I feel like  Day 3 and 4 should be combined… especially since I have a hard time writing at length on prompts like this. But, what are you gonna do? When I first saw this prompt, there were two leading ladies that first came to mind, two very different, but equally awesome leading ladies who could easily top any list. So, let’s just say that I had a hard time choosing between them. I kind of rectified the situation by using one of them during another day instead since that prompt was a much better fit for her….

decisions.gif

So for my pick… this leading lady, lives life to the beat of her own drum. Sure she can be selfish and self serving, but who isn’t? She knows how to look out for number one, and she doesn’t care how many people she has to step over to reach her goals. Plus she ate dog food, how badass is that?! So, My favorite female anime character is…

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jun. 26th to Jul. 2nd

Here I am again, writing another one of these in advanced… For those of you not in the States, this weekend is the 4th of July Weekend, so I will be out of town from Friday to Monday. My BF and I will be driving up to New York this year for the holiday since one of my younger brothers decided to come up from Tennessee for the break!

In other news, I finally announced that I will be completing the 30 Day Anime Challenge during the month of July!!! I am super excited about this and I really hope that you guys like it! On a side note, I am still waiting for my paperwork to be processed before I can start my Summer job… I have a tentative start date of Tuesday, July 5th… so fingers crossed! I also went out and bought Zero Time Dilemma upon its release so I am super stoked to play that once I finish my current playthrough of VLR!!

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 3: My Favorite Male Anime Character

Okay so unlike the prompt for Day 2, the choice for Day 3 was a no brainer! The minute I read the prompt, this character immediately popped into my head. He is the epitome of cool, from the slick way he walks and talks to the way he handles his ship, this guy is a BAMF! One minute he’s kicking ass and taking names, the next he’s causing massive amounts of property damage. This guy is a boss!

like a boss

This character is one of my all time favorite anime characters, and I don’t see anyone else taking his place anytime soon. He lives life by his own rules, as he crosses the galaxy in search of his next bounty. He hates kids, animals, and women with attitudes… So 3…2…1…Let’s jam, My favorite male anime character is…

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 2: My Favorite Anime (so far)

Okay so it’s only Day 2 and I’m already hitting a rough patch! *gasp* What does that say about the rest of the challenge?! I had a really hard time picking an anime for this prompt. Every time I would settle on one anime series a completely different one would pop into my head and supplant the previous title as my favorite…

pfffffffff

I’m still not 100% satisfied with the final pick, but nothing better is coming to mind right now, so I guess that means this is my favorite… If only this were a 30 Day Manga Challenge, I’d have no problem picking my favorite! But, it’s not… So after putting alot of thought into this, I mean a WHOLE LOT of thought…my choice for Day 2: My favorite anime (so far) is….

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now six months into the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Release Event! We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of Pokken Tournament!

However, Shaymin will transform from Sky to Land at night, if the Pokemon is frozen, or if it is deposited into a PC.

Shaymin has been released through event before. So if you missed your chance to get Shaymin from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 1: My First Anime

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound?

Think about that for a minute,  I’ll wait…got your answer? Okay good! Well let’s take this same scenario and apply it to anime.

If a child watches an anime but doesn’t know it’s an anime, is it still considered their first anime?

Like many of you my first exposure to anime were those shown on Cartoon Network’s Toonami or on Kids WB after school. You guys know what I’m talking about, the big three: Sailor Moon, DragonBall Z, and Pokemon. Just about every 90’s kid remembers plopping down in front of the TV after school to watch one of these three shows, but back then they were little more than your typical cartoons. Sure the art was different, but for all intents and purposes, I thought they were cartoons. I didn’t find out until much later that they were even called anime, let alone what an anime was in the first place. So even now it’s hard for me to even think about them as anime, I still think of them as cartoons… So when I read that I had to talk about my first anime, I was at a bit of a loss for what to do. Sure, I could write at length about Sailor Moon or Pokemon, which are technically tied as my first anime, but that doesn’t sit well with me. I consider my first anime to be the first show that I actually knew was an anime when I first watched it, so my “first” anime is…..

Fangirl Moment: Jem and the Holograms

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I am covering a cartoon series that is…truly, truly, truly OUTRAGEOUS! Yup, that’s right I’m covering the 80’s animated show, Jem and the Holograms! So put on your legwarmers, grab your pink eye shadow and get ready for a glam rock experience you won’t soon forget! We’re taking a trip back to a simpler time, where most conflicts could be resolved with…musical battles?

I am definitely not an 80’s kid, so I didn’t grow up with the series, I only recently became acquainted with it, so rest assured, this is not a nostalgia fueled post. This show is definitely a product of the 80’s, so I’ll admit that some aspects of this show can seem pretty cheesy to a modern audience… But, for some reason as ridiculous as this show is, it still manages to suck you in. Maybe its the catchy songs, or maybe it’s the over the top glam fashion that permanently burns itself into your retina…

*We will not speak of that thing they called a movie…that was a tragedy and I will have none of that here…*

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 0: Introduction

Okay, so I’ve been hinting at this for a while now…well the wait is over! I am excited to finally announce that during the month of July, I will be completing the 30 Day Anime Challenge! I saw how much fun my girl, Katrina Sade was having with the challenge over on her blog GrimmGirl.com, and I thought why not give it a try myself? I will attempt to complete the challenge in 30 days, a task I have been warned is damn near impossible… But, we’ll just see how this goes… At the bottom of this post is the breakdown of the prompts for each day, so that you guys know what to expect in the coming days…

Finally, I mentioned this before in my Last Week Today post, but this challenge is extremely time consuming. I have been trying to work on my regular reviews as much as possible so that you guys won’t be inundated with the back to back daily anime posts. But, like I said before, this challenge has taken up a great deal of my blogging time so expect my review schedule to slow considerably. The Sunday Last Week Today posts and the Friday Fangirl Moment posts will not be effected in any way by this challenge, only the game reviews. I am doing my best to work on reviews in addition to the Challenge posts, but don’t expect much lol…

30-day-anime-challenge

What do you think about the announcement? Are you excited to see my responses to the prompts? Do you think I can finish it in the 30 days allotted by the challenge? Let me know what you think in the comments section. Somehow I feel like this is going to be a long month! As always, THANK YOU for reading!!!

I just got Zero Time Dilemma

Okay so I’m totally bragging right now, but I just bought Zero Time Dilemma from my local Gamestop!!! Apparently they only shipped 2 copies and I got the last one!! But, unfortunately they only had the Vita version, so I won’t have the complete series with the Nintendo DS/3DS…. But, I got it! Finally my Vita has fulfilled it’s usefulness!!

 

Mini Review: Sweet Fuse-At Your Side

Sweet Fuse At Your Side

Alternative Title: Bomb Decision (Japan)

Year: 2013

Developer: Aksys

Platforms: PSP

So I came across this game back in 2013, I remember all the hype surrounding it, but at the time I didn’t have a PSP, so I wasn’t able to join in the first wave of players. I then was able to gain access to a PSP and a copy of the game and I absolutely loved it! While it is billed as an otoge, Sweet Fuse plays more like a adventure, puzzle visual novel than your typical romance visual novel. So when it went on sale in the PSN store I immediately went out and bought a copy of the game for myself.

The first route of the game that I played was Subaru Shidou, because I don’t know if I mentioned this before…but I have a thing for megane men. Plus he’s gorgeous, the typical otoge hottie and that suit…sexy!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jun. 19th to Jun. 25th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This has been a pretty slow week for me… Like super duper slow… I had zero motivation to do anything, so I spent the week binge watching The Incredible Hulk television series on Netflix…

binge

I also found out that I will not be starting my summer job on Monday, instead I have to wait another week… something about paperwork delays… So, I will have one final week of summer left before I have to get my act together and do that adulting thing.

Fangirl Moment: Steven Universe

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering an American cartoon series, Steven Universe. I absolutely adored this series from the first episode and every episode since then reminds me just how awesome of a series this is! If you haven’t heard about Steven Universe, you are missing out! This show has it all, and it is refreshingly progressive for a children’s show covering a wide range of topics such as; grief, same sex relationships, and death to name a few.

The show was created by Rebecca Sugar, the former storyboard artist another Cartoon Network animated series, Adventure Time. She was also the storyboard artist 2012 computer animated feature film, Hotel Transylvania. On top of all of that she also produces the songs for the  show…which are awesome!!!

My Top Ten Favorite AMVs

So the other day while going through my favorite Youtube videos, I stumbled upon a few old AMVs and before I knew it I’d lost five hours of my life. I literally spent five hours watching AMVs, so I decided that you guys needed to suffer with me, so I compiled a list of my favorites. Before you all start grabbing your torches and pitchforks, this list is purely my opinion…

control your emotions

You are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me if you want, by all means leave a comment and suggest better AMVs. So without further ado here we go: My Top 10 Favorite AMVs.

My Lover is an Apathetic God: Star Crossed Myth- Aigonorus Review

So it’s no secret that I am a fan of Voltage Inc’s Star Crossed Myth, I have already written two reviews on the game already. But, in the past I’ve mostly stuck to the gods from the Department of Punishments (do with that information what you will), completely neglecting the gods from the Department of Wishes. So it’s high time I show them some love, and what better choice for my first Wishes god than Heudhault Aigonorus?!

IMG_2704

Aignorous is the god of Capricorn, the guy who’s just too lazy to be bothered with…anything. As if his bedroom eyes and permanent bed head, weren’t enough indication that this guy isn’t the most vigorous god of the zodiac. I know I say this every time, but I was not expecting to like Aigonorus as much as I did, especially after someone on Tumblr compared him to Sasuke Uchiha! I was worried I’d been too hasty in buying this route, but after playing through it, I can safely say that he is most definitely nothing like Sasuke. In truth, Aigonorus is probably closest to Shikamaru, as both characters possess an almost superhuman level of apathy.

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc.

My Lover is the Master Swordsman of the Shinsengumi- Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Soji Okita

When I first saw Soji Okita in the prologue, he scared me a bit. He just looks like someone who’d kills indiscriminately, but after playing Hijikata’s route my opinion changed. He seemed like a genuinely okay, if not a little too playful, guy, so when Voltage released his story earlier than expected I decided to buy it.

I take it back…I take back all of the cruel things I said about this guy, he was a much better character than I originally anticipated. I loved Soji in Hakuouki so I was expecting Voltage’s version to pale in comparison, but what I got was a heartbreakingly sweet portrayal of a very tragic character. There is definitely more to this cold swordsman than his reputation would have you believe.

My Lover is the Demon Deputy of the Shinsengumi- Era of Samurai: Code of Love- Toshizo Hijikata

No matter which adaption of the Shinsengumi story you play, Hijikata is always the same, so I kind of knew what to expect from Hijikata before I even started this route. Well Voltage did not disappoint, he turned out exactly as I would imaging the Vice-commander of the Shinsengumi to be.

Toshizo Hijikata is the terrifying right hand man and friend of Shinsengumi leader Isami Kondo. His cold stare and commanding battle prowess have earned him the nickname Demon Deputy among the Shinsengumi men. He is a man of honor an dignity, willing to do whatever it takes for the Shinsengumi, even if it means sacrificing something he holds dear. But is that all there is to the Demon Deputy? What does Hijikata the man want?

The Manly Delinquent Who Stole My Heart: Bad Boys Do It Better- Keiichiro Minase

So here we are with the last route that I have in Bad Boys Do It Better, I’ll save Yu and maybe Akira for the next big Voltage sale. If you guys will remember from my First Thoughts post, Keiichiro was the guy I was most interested in of the available love interests. There is just something attractive about strong silent types, so I went in having high hopes for this route.

Keiichiro Minase is a man of few words, but somehow he still manages to exude a softness uncommon in someone so rough looking. Just like the other love interests, Kei is a bit of a fighter, but that doesn’t mean that he’s a bad guy. Behind his manly appearance is an adorably sweet guy, he uses his strength to protect those weaker than himself and he’s always quick to help a friend in need. Gentle giant, Kei more than met my expectations in this route and I’m sure that this silent delinquent will sweep you off of your feet.

*Well, Voltage forced my hand on this one, so I’m posting this earlier than I expected, to make room another review next week…*

So, finally Voltage has decided to jump on the Shinsengumi bandwagon with their newest release; Era of Samurai: Code of Love. I have no idea why they saw fit to replace Shinsengumi with Samurai, at this point in the game it’s not like Western audiences are unfamiliar with the Shinsengumi especially with the Hakuoki series still dominating the western otoge market… But, I’m sure they had their reasons…

IMG_2584.PNG

I have played a couple of games featuring the Shinsengumi, some were really good…and others not so much, so I’m really curious to see what kind of spin Voltage plans on putting on the historical samurai romance premise (that they didn’t already cover in Sakura Amidst Chaos/ Samurai Love Ballad).

Fangirl Moment: Doukyusei

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m doing something for all of my BL/Yaoi Fangirls out there…Today I’m going to cover the boy’s love manga, Doukyusei. This post will be SAFE FOR WORK…There will be absolutely NO NSFW images in this post, so rejoice (or curse my name), this post can be read in public without consequence! Also, Doukyusei is licensed in English by Digital Manga Guild (however, while I am grateful for the work they put into translating it, there are some minor faults with their product). Doukyusei and its sequels have been licensed in English by Seven Seas Entertainment. The print of volume one is now available for purchase (the subsequent volumes will be released later this year).

When I heard that this manga was getting an animated film adaptation back in February, I damn near pissed my pants! I absolutely adore this manga, quirky art style and all, and I am more than willing to shell out $60 for the Blu-ray, when it is released in September. This is exactly how I like my BL, I’ll choose slow natural romance over non-con romance any day of the week! This story gave me butterflies, because it very much reminded me of my own experience with first love (though mine was nowhere near successful). I’m still fond of that awkwardly bittersweet time, and this manga captures it perfectly.

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. But, for me the Hoenn region is a fond childhood memory, a tropical paradise that introduced us to 135 brand new Pokemon. Each design of the Hoenn Pokemon spoke volumes about the island and it’s rich natural resources. But, for this list I had to pick just 10, and believe me it was no easy feat!

The Arrogant Delinquent Who Stole My Heart: Bad Boys Do It Better- Ryoji Ryukai

So far Bad Boys Do It Better, has been hitting it out of the park with these love interests. I am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this route. Rei’s route was definitely better than this one, but I still appreciated how genuinely sweet the story was in this route.

The MC thinks Ryoji is a nice guy after he saves her from the rowdy group of guys during the events of the prologue, but when she meets him in the dorms, his personality does a complete 180. He has a reputation for being the resident tough guy of the school, relying on his fists to get him out of most situations. But, underneath his rough exterior is a surprisingly gentle guy.

The Aloof Delinquent Who Stole My Heart: Bad Boys Do It Better!-Rei Todo

So, I couldn’t have been more surprised by how much I loved this route! The prologue for this game did a piss poor job of conveying how great of a game this was, and I want to amend my harsh criticism of it!

IMG_2322

Rei Todo, is wonderful perfect adorably cute the cool aloof guy from the prologue. His cool demeanor and sharp tongue keep others at a distance. Not that anyone could even get the chance in the first place, as he spends most of the school year skipping class up on the roof. In the past he was burned by someone he cared about, so he’s very reluctant to open up… But, when he does, he becomes a playful, yet straightforward guy.

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc.

[First Thoughts] Bad Boys Do It Better

Edit: So, I seriously considered editing this post, which I wrote after only playing the prologue, as my opinion of the game has since changed. But, I kind of like the feel of this post, so in the end I didn’t change a thing. 

So, Voltage must love high school romances, because they keep cranking these bad boys out like there aren’t any other otoge premises to choose from. Do I sound bitter, well you bet I’m bitter…I am so tired of high school romances, I thought we were getting somewhere with After School Affairs. At least in that game you play as a high school teacher, but, no, Voltage Inc is taking us back to school with their newest title, Bad Boys Do It Better!

Bad Boys Do it Better

What’s with all the highlights?

As you can no doubt tell from my glowing introduction, I am not overly excited about this game. In fact I’m expecting to be pleasantly disappointed, yet again by yet another foray into the rose colored spring time of youth, but I’ve been surprised by Voltage before, so we’ll see…So without further ado, lets get this ball rolling!

Fangirl Moment: Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m gonna hit you guys in the gut with a French animated film that showed up on my Netflix homepage…Have you ever watched something so strange and confusing that you couldn’t help but fall in love with it’s awkwardness? Well that’s what happened when I first watched the animated film, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. It was a surreal musical experience that I simply won’t soon forget, and I’ll admit I teared up at the end too.

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart (La Mécanique du cœur) is a 2014 animated film, which follows a young man, Jack (voiced by Mathias Malzieu) who was born on the coldest day of the year. Because of this he was born with a frozen heart, so a local midwife/witch replaced his dead heart with a small cuckoo-clock. While the procedure did save his life the midwife, Madeleine, warns young Jack there are three rules that he must obey in order to ensure the longevity of his artificial heart.

[Full Game Review] English Otome- Seduce Me 2: The Demon War

Seduce Me 2: The Demon War, like its predecessor, is a fully voiced, supernatural romance visual novel produced by Seraphim Entertainment and created by Michaela Laws. The original voice cast is back and in full form, their vocal talents shine as they give their all in a series of heart wrenching and emotional performances. In addition to the stellar voice cast, Seduce Me 2 (SM2) boasts a few new features which work together to bring the wonderful story started in Seduce Me (SM) to a satisfying and beautiful close. The five incubi and Diana the succubus are back, each with their own routes, however unlike SM, the romance routes feature both Good Endings and Bad Endings. The additional branching storyline, drills home the game’s message of fate and the burden choices have on destiny. As you play the choices become more difficult, as the player is forced to decide whether to selfishly cling to their love for their incubi or to secede their happiness for the greater good. In the end no matter what you choose, someone has to suffer. This game features some difficult topics, which may not be suitable for some audiences.

Like with the first game all sex scenes are optional.You can purchase the game on itch.io, HERE or on Steam, HERE.

**So the disclaimer… I don’t own these images or characters, they belong to Michaela Laws and Seraphim Entertainment. On that note, there will be some semi-NSFW images in this post, but no private areas will be shown, just some really suggestive angles. 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).

So I’ve Kinda Been Nominated for a Liebster Award!

So after getting home from seeing X-Men Apocalypse, I logged on to WordPress and saw that I had been nominated for Liebster Award by fellow blogger, Mr. Panda over at Mr. Panda’s Video Game Reviews! I have only recently become acquainted with this blogger, but I assure you that he is truly wonderful blogger. Not only is he super nice and easy to talk to, but he is an amazing blogger with a host of great game reviews! He is so great, that he even writes for both Miketendo64 and Darkstation! I am both honored and touched that such a dynamite blogger as Mr. Panda, not only follows my blog, but liked it enough to nominate me for this award! I cannot thank you enough!!!

[Sub Story] Astoria Fates Kiss- Private Lies

So this is a special post just for you guys, before I dive into Hydra’s Season 2 stories! So, instead of a full blown review, I’m going to cover Hydra’s first sub story, Private Lies. This story takes place shortly after the events of Hydra’s season one main stories and essentially takes the place of a typical epilogue. The story is three chapters long and comes with it’s own special image.

Forbidden Romance: Dangerous Relationship- Kei Toyonaga

Disclaimer: I am going to warn ya’ll in advance, this review is my opinion feel free to disagree with me if you will… But keep it civil, I have no patience for trolls (consider yourself warned). Also this post will contain some strong language, do with it what you will.

I like to think of myself as a conscientious buyer, when it comes to games.  I have a three step process that I use to vet my games before purchasing, and this is all games (indie or otherwise)!

  1. I look the game up and read the description. If I like the premise I move on to Step 2
  2. Read reviews and comments. Usually a quick run through of the comments in the App Store or on Google Play will suffice. But, if I notice a high concentration of troll posts, I might expand my search to blog reviews or gaming review sites. If the reviews seem positive I move on to Step 3 
  3. I then download the game and play through the free trial and or prologue. If I am still interested at this point, this is the point in which I actually make a purchase.

This process has served me well in the past, hell, I’d go so far as to say it’s damn near fool proof. If I follow all of these steps, I avoid wasting money on shitty games, even when I don’t use this process it’s still extremely rare for me to accidentally buy a crappy game. Like I said, I pride myself in my ability to sniff out shit games, but I am human and I have been known to slip up….this was one of those times…Before I continue on to the actual review, I want to talk about my critiques of games, for reference, because I assure you this game deserves all the rage I’m about to type out in this review.

[Update] Jobs, Game Clubs, and Blogging

Hello Heroes and Travelers! After two 14 hour bus rides, I’m back from my trip home! My little bro’s graduation was awesome and it was nice to spend time with my family over the 3-Day weekend! Since then I have been busy, remember the job I told you guys about? Well, I was offered an even better position at the same place, and after a short follow up interview last Thursday…I got it!! The new position is a bit longer than the last, and I’ll actually be running statistics and compiling reports of the project’s data as it comes in from participants…Which is really very exciting for me!

praise hand

In more exciting news, I, along with three other WordPress bloggers (Cas, Cat, and Anny) have formed a Gaming Club! We basically choose a game to play as a group and then set a completion date. Upon completion we sit down and discuss our thoughts and feelings about the game on LINE. So far, the group has played through two games (One Billion Rupiah Girl and Starry Sky in Spring) and we just started Norn9, though I’m not gonna start playing that until later on in the summer…. Anyway, I’m telling you this because we would like to spread the word about our group and maybe even recruit some new members…

You can find all the info you need about the group on our blog That Game ClubFeel free to drop us a line there, through the Club’s email: thatgameclub@outlook.com, or on Facebook and Twitter!

PokeNews: Manaphy Distribution

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now five months into the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Release Event! We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of digital release of the original Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow! And last month we had not one, but four seperate Pokemon distributions!!!

We’ve got four legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward with another legendary from the Fourth Generation of Pokemon games, with June’s Manaphy release!

manaphy.gif

Manaphy, the Seafaring Pokemon, is a water type pokemon and the last pokemon introduced before the release of Platinum. This Pokemon is unique from other legendary pokemon in that it is the only legendary that can breed. However, all of Manaphy’s offspring are Phione, so this is really a  two for one distribution! Manaphy has the signiture move, Heart Swap, in which the user switches any increases/decreases in stats with its opponent. Like the others before it Manaphy had its own movie, Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

There were several Manaphy events over the years, but the one that comes to mind the first is the Pokemon Ranger Egg Event. Players who owned a copy of Pokemon Ranger could trade over a special Event Manaphy egg to any of the fourth generation games. So whether you took part in any of the earlier events or like me, you missed out on getting Manaphy from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- May 22nd to May 28th

Hello fellow Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week! I know I said this is my Summer Blog Plans post, but I have two exciting announcements this week!

Fangirl Moment: Blue Morning

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m doing something for all of my BL/Yaoi Fangirls out there…Today I’m going to cover the yaoi manga, Blue Morning. This post will be SAFE FOR WORK…There will be absolutely NO NSFW images in this post, so rejoice (or curse my name), this post can be read in public without consequence!

I’ve said this before, but it is extremely rare that I pick up an ongoing series. They are just more trouble than they’re worth, and I end up forgetting about them anyway due to huge gaps between updates. In order for me to even think about picking up an ongoing series, the plot has to be on point, something that I won’t easily forget between releases… But the true test of an ongoing series is whether or not I will also spend money on it! I don’t throw my money around lightly, so I certainly won’t bother buying a manga series until it’s complete…  I have been burned one too many times in the past (looking at you Tokyopop), so I am extremely picky about which manga series I buy. So for me to not just read an ongoing series, but go so far as to purchase it as well, says a great deal about my opinion of the series…. I have made that exception only four times to date, and Blue Morning was one of them!

The Cyborg Executive Who Stole My Heart: My Wedding and the 7 Rings-Seiichirou Hayami

Sorry, it’s taken me awhile, but this character was chosen by you guys about four weeks ago during that week’s poll. Well I saw the votes and I’m not one to disappoint, so here’s my review of Seiichirou Hayami’s route in My Wedding and the 7 Rings!

 

I didn’t know what to expect from this route going in, because not much is known about Sei at this point in the game. In the other routes, he is merely the facilitator of the late CEOs will, and the man in charge of the Marriage Program. He mostly takes on an advisory role, assisting the MC as she completes the program, though he has been known to create minor obstacles for the MC and her chosen fiance as well. Despite his role in the marriage game, very little is known about Sei. At work he is one of the top executives of the Sanno Corporation, having worked under the former CEO, his skills are second to none. But, his emotionless disposition has lead to him being referred to as a cyborg among his peers.

From Consciousness to Reality: DRAMAtical Murder-Ren Review & Final Thoughts on DRAMAtical Murder

First, I can’t believe that I’m finally done with this game! DRAMAtical Murder was the first game I reviewed on this blog and it has taken me nine whole months to get through it all. This is a huge achievement for me, I usually play one route and never touch the game again. I have game commitment issues lol…. So, unlike the other reviews I plan on keeping this as short as possible, so I can fit in my overall final thoughts on the game at the end, besides I pretty much got all my ranting out in the Tumblr live blog. I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum, but this is the True canon route of the game, so that might be easier said than done. So without further ado, the last DMMd route, here’s Ren!

From Machine to Man: DRAMAtical Murder- Clear Review

I was feeling pretty low after finishing Mink’s route, in fact, I completely lost all desire to even finish this game at all….but after taking a few days away from DMMd, I gained some of my fighting spirit back. So, after seeing Clear’s antics in the common route, I was expecting this to be one of the more light-hearted routes of the game (which I seriously needed after finishing Mink’s route). Clear is the most upbeat of the available love interests, and his route is full of hilariously over the top moments. I think I laughed myself silly during the first half of the route, but suddenly without me noticing, Clear’s route did a complete 180. There is so much more to Clear than meets the eye, and I never expected this route to be the most emotional and heart-wrenching route of the game.

clear

Clear is a mysterious character, as you can see from his above character profile, very little is known about him at the beginning of the game. He is a very energetic and friendly, but his odd mannerisms often confuse those around him. He’s like a cute puppy following the others around as they plan their assault on Toue.

**Disclaimer: I don’t own these images, they belong to Nitro+chiral…and this goes without saying, but there will be minor SPOILERS under the cut… Also, there is a NSFW image in this post (it’s rather tame by BL standards, though) you have been warned*

Last Week Today: Week End Recap-May 15th to May 21st

Hello, fellow heroes and travelers, here we are at the end of yet another week! This past week has been a little crazy! I have been sending out job applications like crazy and I finally heard back from one! I had the interview on Friday and I should hear back on Monday, so I’ll be playing the waiting game until then… My prospects look good for the job, but we’ll see….finger’s crossed!

alice waiting

So, I have a bit of an announcement to make!  One of my younger brothers is graduating from High School on Saturday! I’m so proud of him!!! Yay! But, that means that I’ll be in Georgia for this weekend… *fidgets* …so I won’t be able to get the May 22nd to May 28th Last Week Today Post out to you guys on Sunday May 29th as planned…I should be able to get it out to you guys on Monday May 30th instead though… Just a heads up!

Fangirl Moment: The Lord of the Rings-Fellowship of the Ring

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m not covering any of my usual topics, this time I decided change it up by covering a book that I just recently finished reading.

So today’s post will cover the first “book” in J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga, The Fellowship of the Ring. Originally released in between 1954 and 1955, Lord of the Rings, was supposed to be published as one complete work. However, the publisher decided to split the work into three separate volumes: Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King. The central conflict of the story revolves around the One Ring, which was created by the Dark Lord Sauron to assist him in his efforts to enslave all of Middle Earth. However, before his plan could be fully realized, the ring became lost and peace descended upon Middle Earth. After some years had passed, the ring was found by the most unlikely of heroes, setting in motion an events that would dictate the future of Middle Earth.

The Silent Butler Who Stole My Heart: Butler Until Midnight- Kyo Aizawa

My writer’s block is finally over!!! Yes, now I can finally get down to business, and defeat the Huns I mean finally bang out some more reviews…I finally had time for another Voltage route and this time it’s one that you all voted on!! It’s taken me awhile, but this character was chosen by you guys about four weeks ago during that week’s poll. Well I listened, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with this choice, give yourselves a pat on the back this was and excellent route.

Kyo InfoCard.PNGI have been wanting to play this route for some time now, yet I never could find the time to. Ever since I saw his blank, expressionless face in the prologue, I knew that I just had to play his route and learn the reason behind it. The title of  cool loner does not do him justice, there is so much emotion beneath his blank stare if you only take the time to look.

**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.**

[Full Game Review] English Otome-Seduce Me

 

This is one of those games that I absolutely enjoyed playing, but never really got around to writing a review for…So, now that I have some free time and in honor of the sequel coming out on May 20th on Steam, (I got the game from itch.io, so I have to wait until June 20th) I decided to go back and play the game that started it all! So whether you’ve already played this game and are in need of a refresher before Seduce Me 2 is released, or someone new to the game, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Released in 2015, Seduce Me is a fully voiced PC English visual novel, produced by Seraphim Entertainment and created by Michaela Laws.  First, I can’t tell you how awesome and rare it is for a FREE indie English otome game like Seduce Me to have a full voice cast…and for said voice cast to be good too! It’s like winning the lotto right after you lose your job, not necessarily impossible, but unlikely as hell! So big props to Seraphim and Michaela for pulling this off with the help of their backers on Kickstarter, some out of pocket money, and a whole helluva lot of determination!
