2018 Overview – Upcoming Otome & BL Games

We’re in the year 2018 now and we have yet to arrive in a future where games aimed at women aren’t dumbed down, can be pretty fun with gameplay and is just as pandering in terms of fanservice in any other game aimed at the average male otaku (e.g Senran Kagura, Blue Reflection (kinda pandering), Any other D3P game that has a main cast of high school girls etc). Just cryogenic freeze me and thaw me out when that future happens. Just kidding.

This Overview Post will be a bit different than the previous years. I’ll do my best to write down the names of the main voice actors for each game and I’ll only write up summaries for games that already have a set date, which will help me get through this list faster.

Last year I couldn’t update the 2017 Overview post past July, 2017 because my browser would always lag because of all the youtube videos it tried to load, so hopefully I’ll post less youtube videos this time (particularly only posting youtube videos for games with set release dates).

[Book] Art books – Touken Ranbu Kenran Zuroku Vol.2

2018-10-10 11.21.01

It’s been a while since I did a post on an art book, though there aren’t a lot of art books that pique my interest or I just forget about writing one as soon as I get a good art book. Though one art book that I love to look at is the Touken Ranbu Official Art Book and upon hearing that they’re releasing a second volume for the newer sword boyos I decided to get one right away.

This’ll be a short review. I originally ‘reviewed’ the first volume in my first game diary on Touken Ranbu which you can check out here. I wouldn’t call it a review but it’s something.

Companies like Sega and Capcom will be at this event with Capcom announcing the next instalment for the Toraware no Palm series: ‘Toraware no Palm -Refrain”.

I’ll be using information gathered from the official website for Toraware no Palm -Refrain- as well as a Dengeki Girl’sStyle Online article. I’ll be using images from the official website. Check both links out if you want some more information.

[PC] Demo Review – “Reimei no Gakuen”

Reimei no Gakuen is an upcoming visual novel by Raikon Kitsune Arts. This visual novel is set in a modern fantasy world where supernatural beings exist and certain individuals born after the ‘Hoshi no Ame’ incident possessing superhuman powers called ‘Shin’ are on the rise for about 20 years. The powers of ‘Shin’ users vary from person to person. While it is uncertain how to predict these abilities from user to user, one thing is for certain that those who possess these powers will experience great misfortune.

The story follows our heroine Sheryl Shiganori who is attending an academy to help control and hone her powers while protecting everyone from demons and beasts and guiding newcomers.

This review was requested by the creator. The demo available right now is currently in alpha so some things may be unfinished but it does have about 2 hours of gameplay.
