Edit: The Kickstarter for this game failed to achieve the necessary funds by the deadline. As of right now there has been no additional news about future plans for localization of this title!
So I know this has been said several times before, but I feel that this type of repitition is good, it shows solidarity within the Otome/Otoge community (and I love it!)
Gloczus, the same folks who helped localize Hakuoki and Amnesia, are back again this time with the title Beastmaster and Prince ~Flower and Snow~! Originally released back in 2010, the game has proved immensely popular spawning two sequels…
The story looks good, and since my Japanese language skills are laughable at best, it warms my heart that companies are listening to our otome fangirl pleas, and seriously considering localizing Japanese games for a global market.
More games = more new fans, which in turn increases the demand for these types of games, which then means more games will be localized!
So PLEASE check out the Kickstarter, HERE, and lend your support. There are only 18 more days left for them to reach their goal of $150,000 (currently $49,713), every little bit helps! I’m planning on donating at the $25 level…I know it’s not much (I kinda quit my job right before Christmas) but I really do want to help out!
Every little bit helps!

I usually don’t do this, but I figured for once, why not get ahead of the curve a little…Yesterday Voltage released a brand new game, After School Affairs! Am I excited about this game? Eh, not really, but that didn’t stop me from downloading it the minute it was available in the App store, like I do every Voltage game, good, bad, or indifferent…So here we go:
Once again Voltage is taking us to school, however this time instead of being one of the students, we get the chance to play as a teacher?! I know right! We’ve finally graduated from high school romances to forbidden teacher romance! Not that I have a problem with their available high school romance stories, it’s just nice to play as an adult some times is all.
So with all the hype surrounding the newer Voltage Inc games, the older games aren’t getting as much attention. By older I mean those hidden gems that don’t appear on the Voltage Visual Romance Apps Facebook page, nor do they have fancy gifs on their Tumblr. No these unsung heroes are the forgotten foundation of the Voltage empire, and for many the start a long-term love affair with 2D pixel men…So I just wanted to throw a small spotlight on an older game by writing about my first ever otome A Knights Devotion. Yes, scoff if you want to, Voltage was my first introduction to the otome genre three years ago, and I haven’t look back since! I still remember playing it under the register at my barista job…*sigh* memories.
So this started off as a rant about the Voltage Inc visual novel Kissed by the Baddest Bidder (KBTBB), but the more I began writing, the more it became a tribute to Soryu Oh.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have some fundamental issues with some key aspects of KBTBB, but I’ll save it for another day. But, then this post kinda sat in my drafts for weeks while I played other games, because KBTBB and I had a bit of a falling out of sorts, I just need to see other people for awhile. It happens like that sometimes. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon this birthday post on the Voltage Visual Romance Facebook Page:
To be honest, I had forgotten how HOT Soryu is with his hair down…*cough* So in honor of his birthday on Feb. 17, I decided to go back and replay Soryu’s Season 1, and remember just what drew me to the cool mobster in the first place…
*Disclaimer: I don’t own these images, they belong to Voltage…and this goes without saying, but there will be minor SPOILERS under the cut…*
So while browsing my Facebook trending topics, I stumbled upon this blip on NintendoNews, about a brand new legendary Pokemon, Magearna. I dunno how I feel about this one…don’t we have enough legendary Pokemon already?
So apparently the Pokemon was created by humans over 500 years ago and will make it’s debut in a brand new Pokemon movie set to be released later this year. It kind of reminds me of a music box… I’m not overly thrilled by this announcement, but I will withhold serious judgement until more information is available about the Pokemon.
What do you think about the new Pokemon? Do you think GameFreak will even distribute the Pokemon outside of Japan? Are you guys excited about Pokemon20? What about Pokemon Go? Feel free to comment and share, and as always THANK YOU for reading!
