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!!
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!

Red Garden is a 22 episode anime, released between 2006 and 2007, later in 2007 a 45 minute OVA epilogue was released. The series follows four high school girls from New York as they find themselves caught up in a string of supernatural murders happening throughout the city.
What I really like about the show is how random everything seems in the beginning. At first you think you’ve stumbled into a high school slice of life drama, as we see each of the four girls waking up after what seems to be have been a rough night. We follow each girl as she prepares to attend their elite private school located on Roosevelt Island. You really get a glimpse at how different these girls are from one another, each coming from a different walk of life. Kate is an affluent teen and revered member of Grace, a student council like organization at their school. Rachel, while she is the typical queen bee type, fashionable and popular, lives in a single parent home with a neglectful mother. Claire is the independent one in the group, she lives alone in a crappy apartment in the city. Then there’s Rose the youngest of the group, not only does she have to take care of her younger siblings while her mother is sick, she also has to maintain the full scholarship that allows her to attend the prestigious private school.

So as many of you may know Astoria: Fate’s Kiss is the sequel/ second season of Labyrinths of Astoria…
Now that Season 1 has come to a close, in preparation for our second season, we’d like to announce a name change, from “Labyrinths of Astoria” to “Astoria: Fate’s Kiss”! Love can be like like a labyrinth – first, you have to fight your way through challenges to be with the one you love! So then, the next stage is up to fate! (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧
I am so hyped and I’ve only played the prologue! Let me start off by praising Astoria and Voltage for including POC, and for those who don’t know that is “People of Color“, as characters in the game! It is refreshing to see characters of all shades and hues as side characters and main characters! I mean holy Hera, even Zeus, the king of the gods is black…and not kinda Black, he’s Black, Black! Like a chocolate dipped dream! Yes! It is so rare to see POC characters in otome, and I for one hope that Voltage USA, keeps it up with their future AmeMix releases!

So I wasn’t a huge fan of the previous Voltage USA titles, they all just fell flat for me…I felt that instead of adapting the existing Voltage games for an American audience, Voltage should have been more consistent in updating the stuff they already had! So when Voltage announced that they would be releasing Voltage USA 2.0, AmeMix, let’s just say I was less than enthused…To say I was hesitant about the new venture is a bit of an understatement, to be honest I had even resigned myself to completely ignore its existence… but curiosity…and a lot of good press later had me downloading the first (and only) game in the series: Labyrinths of Astoria (now Astoria: Fates Kiss) onto my Ipad Mini…and there it stayed unopened and unplayed for weeks!
That is until I received a ‘Coming Soon’ notification for Hades’ Main Story 1… and Lord help me… that man can get it!
