[Mobile] Quick look at… LibraryCross∞ – Mini Review

LibraryCross∞ is Otomate’s latest mobile game. It was developed with the help of Wright Flyer Studios and had been delayed for quite a bit until now… though you’ll never guess why it had been delayed until I reveal it later into this review. The mobile game centers around a group of strangers finding themselves trapped inside a library. It is also a crossover of a select few Otomate games, where the heroine would explore their worlds by jumping into a book.

Otomate has also planned for an anime to be made in the future (of course they are), which may mean that we’ll see Otomate characters crossover in anime form too–which won’t get weird whatsoever when there might be characters with the same voice actor talking in the same scene (just kidding, I’ve yet to see characters with the same voice interact in the game).

This review is gonna be mighty quick and messy because….. yeesh, I just can’t bring myself to play it anymore but I also feel like I should talk about it on this blog. Fair warning, this review might be biased because it’s heavily based on my opinion. So if you don’t want to be swayed by my opinion and you want to give this game the benefit of the doubt, I’d suggest trying it out and form an opinion by yourself.

[Anime] Dynamic Chord Episode #01 (Anime Review)

Woooooo, its Hallooweenie month and y’know what that means. Spooky shit, and what’s more spooky than a shitty anime adaption of an otome game? Trying to profit off a series by making an anime out of it and leaving it in incapable hands is the truest horror one could possibly witness.

Like I promised, even though it’s really late, I’m gonna do episodic reviews for Dynamic Chord: The Anime. It took me a while to find a place to watch it (and is legal) and boy was it abysmal. I might do an overall review for it in the end because its so bad.

Anyway, I want y’all to witness the first episode too. The first episode is free to watch on HIDIVE (only in 480p for free users, it enhances how bad this anime is), so feel free to watch it before reading my thoughts. →Check it Out←

Also, quick heads up. I’ve never played the games so I have no idea who is who and this is all new to me. I might not find enjoyment or get the fanservice, so I might be a little biased here with my ignorance.

[Anime] Thoughts on… Sengoku Night Blood Episode #01

Based on the mobile game that released late May of this year, Sengoku Night Blood is one of historic dramas but with a twist, that twist being that it’s set in an parallel world where instead of daimyōs fighting against each other in the Sengoku Period to unite Japan, we’ve got vampires and werewolves fighting against each other to unite “Shinga” (totally not vampire-werewolf Japan). Oh, also every single person in this anime/game shares the same name as historical figures in the Sengoku Period. Coincidence? No, not really.

The mobile game and anime is a collaboration between Otomate (game company whose specialty is to create games for girls), Marvelous Inc. (developer of video games and anime) and KADOKAWA (publisher of manga, magazines and games). The game itself is only in Japanese, so if you’re an English speaker who is interested in playing it after watching this anime, I’d suggest to either look up guides and translations or learn Japanese. If you want to read my review of the mobile game, here’s the link.

As for the anime its main production is by a studio called Typhoon Graphics who are mostly credited for finishing animation and their big projects would be animation production assistance with the Digimon Adventure Tri. movies, animation production/finish animation of my favorite shitty first person anime series One Room and Roommate and finally their latest and biggest project with Sengoku Night Blood. With such prestigious work, I’m sure this will be one hell of a ride.

This time around I’ll be reviewing this series as each episode airs because I have a mighty feeling that this anime might be hilarious in terms of quality (or lack there of) and it’ll be much easier to gather my thoughts on certain parts of the anime, considering I forget some stuff when I do full reviews. Hopefully I’ll do the same for the Dynamic Chord anime because that seems lol worthy. Not sure if I’ll do a full review eventually to wrap things up after it ends, but I’ll consider it. ❗

[CD/Character Songs] A3! – Autumn Troupe Album: “First AUTUMN EP”

A3! released a line of four seasonal albums for each troupe (from Spring to Winter troupe), each album consisted of the troupe’s theme song, their first stage play song and solo character songs of the two main stars of the troupe. As a avid Autumn Troupe fan I’ve bought their album, hopefully this won’t be the last because I want to hear everyone’s solo songs especially Taichi’s who’s one of my favs lol.

Autumn Troupe’s album released just last month and if you haven’t listened to the audio sample of the album in above’s video, then listen to it now because those songs are lit as fuck 😆 Honestly I love their songs and fits well with the image of Autumn Troupe: just a bunch of delinquents (or ex-delinquents) that are hard as nails and are not to be messed with.

Anyway, I’ll do a little review for it to just share more of my opinions on what I love and find interesting about this album.

[Anime] Thoughts on… Kenka Banchou Otome -Girl Beats Boys- (Anime Review)

In commemoration of the release of Kenka Banchou Otome~Kanzen Muketsu no My Honey~ (fandisc) this week, I’ll be giving Kenka Banchou Otome -Girl Beats Boys- a little mini review 😆

You’ll have to keep in mind that its been a year since I played Kenka Banchou Otome so I might not remember things properly and may even say thing that are inaccurate. Sorry about that! Anyway, I’ll try my best to remember and give a quick, thorough comparison between the anime and the game.

[Mobile] Quick look at… Sengoku Night Blood

Sengoku Night Blood is an ambitious mobile game, that is collaborated between Otomate, Marvelous and KADOKAWA. The mobile game is the starting point for a multi-media franchise, or so Otomate prolly hopes for.

I’m a little late to the party on reviewing this, mainly because something happened last month I couldn’t get around doing it, but hopefully my input on this game is still welcomed (even though some people may have already forgotten about this game). I’ll be quick about this review while putting my two cents on what I think about this game.

[Anime] Thoughts on… Roommate & One Room (Anime Review)

I was initially going to review RoomMate by itself but when I found out it was a spin-off of another anime that shares the same concept called One Room (replace the dudes in RoomMate with cute anime girls and that’s the anime), I decided, what the heck, I’ll check this one out and see if its any better than the dumpster fire that is RoomMate and y’know what it is. One Room isn’t exactly “anime of the year” material but at least it ain’t RoomMate.

So I’ll be using One Room as a way to compare and analyse RoomMate and see what exactly went so wrong. Just to make things clear, both of these animes are in the ‘first person anime’/’point of view anime’ genre much like my good ol’ friend Makura no Danshi (I take all the bad things I’ve said about it back now that I’ve watched RoomMate). One Room was released on January while RoomMate released afterwards in May, these animes run for about 4 minutes. Both share the same animation studio (legit thought it was by the same studio that did Makura no Danshi, guess I was wrong) as well as the same directors/writers/storyboarders/staff which kinda creates the problem of a staff going from catering to guys with One Room to catering to girls with RoomMate, usually the transition doesn’t go so well especially when both rely heavily on fanservice… which I’ll talk about later.

Anyway, lets get this shit show rolling.

[Unboxing + Quick Look at] Side Kicks! (Limited Edition)

2017-05-03 14.23.15

It took over a month to get here but I finally have my big ol’ yaoi hands on Side Kicks! I guess all those public holidays during April made it harder for it to get mailed to my door 😅 I was thinking of getting a special set like the animate set but decided to hold back bc I’m already drowning in badges and stuff and I’ve gotta think about saving money. Though the Imajin special shop bonus had a Rico dakimakura cover–wall scroll/tapestry, tho I wouldn’t put it up on my wall bc I might be judged by others considering he looks like a 12 year old (he’s actually 19 going on 20). You can be the judge of that by looking at the sample image of the almost dakimakura-esque wall scroll/poster/whatever it is. The funny thing is that they don’t have the same treatment done to the other characters so Rico is just special.

I did however bought the limited edition of Side Kicks!, particularly from CD Japan which delivered on its usual bromide store bonus, however instead of giving 2 bromides of different CGs they only gave out 1 which I won’t complain bc I wasn’t expecting much lol.

Seeing that this post will be a bit short if I just talked about the stuff that comes with the Limited Edition, I’m gonna also talk about my first impressions on the game after playing it for 2 hours or so. Hopefully this post will give some ppl some insight into what kind of game Side Kicks! is, and hopefully I’ll get to finish it and actually write a proper review this time. Please be patient with me lol.

[PC] 🔞 Thoughts on… Nonke Ippatsu Tabehodai (Trial Ver.)

I promised to give my thoughts on the trial of Nonke Ippatsu Tabehodai at the start of this month, so I’m gonna deliver on that promise right now. I won’t be doing mini reviews on trials/demos often but if you suggest one or if I’m interested in something there’s a chance I’ll do it more often.

Anyway, onto my mini-review.

[PS4] Thoughts on… Persona 5

thoughtsonp5

For these past few days (which turned into weeks), I have been enslaved by Persona 5 and only now have I been emancipated. To tell you the truth, I’ve been playing it 24/7 for the past 2~3 weeks–which ended up being almost 170 hours of gameplay, give or take–and just finished it yesterday. As promised I’ll do a little small review to give my thoughts on it.

I’ll give a little warning now: I will talk a little bit about spoilers, if you’re planning to play it yourself and rather go in blind, by all means stop reading this post. If you don’t care about spoilers or have finished it yourself then enjoy a bit of my rant. The first parts won’t have heavy spoilers but the discussion on the story will, so proceed with caution.
