Coyote Vol. 1 BL Manga Review – ‘Romeo and Juliet’ with a supernatural twist

So, some background on this one— A few months back I decided to gift some manga to one of my oldest IRL friends for her birthday. Like me she is a lover of anime and manga, with a soft spot for boys love media. She’s partial to some of the steamier boys love titles, so I compiled a list which included: two works by Scarlet Beriko The Fourth Generation Head  and Jackass, Rihito Takerai’s Ten Count, and Ranmaru Zariya’s Coyote. She’d already read Ten Count so I took that off the list and rejected Coyote because she found it boring (her words, not mine), so I got her The Fourth Generation Head and Jackass and that should have been the end of it, but I couldn’t for the life of me understand what she didn’t like about Coyote.

“A forbidden romance between a werewolf and a human whose passion conceals a dark secret…”

I mean, a forbidden supernatural romance is right up my alley, so I bought the first two volumes for myself and y’all I WAS HOOKED!

5 Women of Color Lead Indie Games You Should Be Playing

Video games are becoming much more diverse, with more and more creators of color are setting out and starting their own studios, which in turn means more representative games. Upcoming titles, Ocean Pearls and Validate are both being developed by entirely BIPOC teams and feature characters of color in prominent roles. As a Black female gamer, I am thrilled with this shift towards diversity in games, because it provides greater storytelling opportunities and more visibility for people of color—particularly women of color! 

So, I took about compiling a list of games featuring Black and Brown female leads! Since I am but one humble blogger,  I took to Twitter to solicit help with this post and as always my followers more than rose to the occasion!

Blerdy Otome 5th Anniversary – Fave Posts of 2016

Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe! August marks the 5th anniversary of this blog and over the years I have written quite a few posts (over 800 and counting). I’ve come a long way since my start in 2015, but I still like to look back at some of my earlier posts, it keeps me humble.

By 2016, I had started to come into my own a bit and there’s a lot more of a focus to my content–I started a couple of ongoing blogging segments (some of which are now retired) and I made a conscious effort to write more game reviews. So, let’s look back at some of my favorite posts from 2016!!

Thrifty Gaming: Games That Won’t Blow Your Budget #62

Hey there Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, I know I missed the last two Thursdays of posts let’s blame that on my leaking ceiling… but, it’s once again that special time of the week—Thrifty Thursday!

In a world where it’s all about the almighty dollar, sometimes it’s a little tough to make our pennies stretch enough to accommodate our hobbies. But, there are plenty of ways to balance your budget while still enjoying the things you love, you just have to be a little thrifty about it. So, I created Thrifty Gaming in order to spotlight some lesser known indie titles that are both entertaining an affordable.

If you’re a new follower or someone who has been following since my Nice Job Breaking It Hero days and have been gone for awhile, here’s a refresher… Thrifty Gaming, is a weekly post series where I spotlight three games/visual novels that are under $10.00. These can be mobile games, PC games, and a few times I have found some nice indie console titles too. The list used to focus on just otome games and romance visual novels, but after requests from a few readers I have since expanded to other gaming genres. I don’t include sales or limited time offers, each title has to be consistently priced at $10.00 or less without any promotions to be included in this line up.

Note, these are not reviews, rather recommendations so your mileage may vary with some of these titles. This week’s post will include a brief synopsis and links to each game so you can add them to your gaming library! You don’t have to break the bank to enjoy your hobbies, so save a little bread and check this week’s thrifty gaming picks!

I have quite a few award nominations that have piled up, but this one is definitely the most unique AND it was created by the absolutely delightful Pinkie from Pinkie’s Paradise! She created this tag as a way to promote positive vibes in a time when there’s a whole heck of a lot of negativity floating around.

“The ones we love , even when fictional, are oftenly only human after all. With this blog tag I want to spread love for all the fandoms and united fans in positivity again! No longer will we shake our heads and say “this isn’t the <insert fandom> that we used to know.. they destroyed our beloved. NO! We stand together and join forces and turn this into “Remember the time that <insert fandom> did this amazing thing! I LOVE IT!”
