[Mobile] Review – Otome Yuusha (オトメ勇者)

Otome Yusha (オトメ勇者) released back in December 16, 2017 and because I was overseas when this happened I only started playing it around January this year. So after fiddling around with it for about a month I decided it was about time to review this mobile game.

I also wrote a previous post on Otome Yusha where I gathered information from the website before it was released and speculated what the gameplay would be like. I also translated character profiles so check it out here.

[Mobile – Special] A3! Character Ranking Results

sakaseyou!yelldemankai

In celebration of A3’s first anniversary since it’s release, players were given an event to grind for support/cheer points to cheer for their favorite boy, new gacha with new SR cards were added just for the event and rewards like R/SR/SRR tokens were available during the event where you could use those tokens to choose previous limited gacha cards. Those who gave 1,000 cheer points to their favorite boy gets a special title/badge.

The event was called 咲かせよう!エールでMANKAI and it ran from 12th January, 2018 to 22nd January 2018. The event also provided as a character popularity poll too, in a way. The results of the character ranking was released on the 6th of February.

There are prizes planned for the winning characters so before I write up the character ranking I’ll just explain thoroughly what the prizes are.

[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.

[2017 Recap & Review] Week 4 – Apps & Browser Game Reviews

This year I’ll be doing the yearly recap & review posts a bit differently, I’ll be doing separate posts for each review subject so it’ll be posted for each week in December and finally doing an overall recap post at the end of the month.

I’m splitting things up because I won’t be available to blog during late November/whole of December as I’ll be overseas with no internet access, or at least no regular access.

This week I’ll be recapping and reviewing apps(mobile) games as well as browser games that I’ve played in 2017, some of them are just me trying them out and then dropping them others are games that I play religiously.

[Mobile] Otome Watch – オトメ勇者 – Otome Yuusha

Otome Yuusha (オトメ勇者) is an upcoming iOS/Android game by level-5, who is known for such games as the Professor Layton series, Inuzuma Eleven games and Yo-Kai Watch series. This will be their first attempt at making a game that is female oriented and hopefully unlike Square Enix’s first time attempt at making a female oriented game *coughKimikiricoughreallybadgamecough* they will be successful with Otome Yuusha.

This is game will be a collaboration between level-5 and A-1 Pictures–who will provide animated sequences for the mobile game–as well as character design from Chinatsu Kurahana, who also did character design for the Uta no Prince-sama games and Togainu no Chi, with her latest work being the illustrator and character design for Otomate’s 7’scarlet.

As usual with most of my ‘otome watch’ posts, I’ll be doing a rundown on the game, characters, story and system before it releases with the information that has been released at the time of writing this post. If there’s anything big in terms of new information, I’ll try to add it to this post.

I’ll be getting most of my information and images from the website, I’ll reference other Japanese articles but I won’t post the images posted from those articles here.

[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.

[Mobile – Special] April Fools Day: Ensemble Stars, A3 and Yumeiro Cast 2017 Edition

Today is the day where you too can be the April Fool. April Fools Day is taken very seriously in Japan and is prolly one of the most anticipated dates when it comes to being entertained by parodies/jokes set up by companies that produce your favorite games and animes. Mobages are especially predictable to use this day to its full potential by putting out bonus content, be it gags or free stuff. I’ll be rounding up what happened with my three favorite mobages.

Sorry I won’t be doing anything else for April Fools other than this post. So… Happy April Fools 😆

A3! is a mobile game about stage actors and their journey to become the best entertainers. Gameplay is a bit like Ensemble Stars! where it doesn’t take a lot of skill compared to mobile rhythm games, its more about collecting cards and strengthening your teams.

This will be a breakdown post on how gameplay works and hopefully can act a bit like a guide for those who need some tips on playing the game.

[Mobile] Review – A3! Act! Addict! Actors! (エースリー)

A3! is a new mobile game from Liber Entertainment, you may know some of their works such as the idol game, I Chu. A3! is about a bunch of aspiring actors trying to make it in the acting world by doing stage plays at Mankai Company, as the story advances you get to see them grow as actors and form bonds. You play as Izumi Tachibana, a young adult that was invited to Mankai Company in hopes it would give her answers on what happened to her father, but instead becomes the Director/Coach and saves the Mankai Company theater from being bulldozed.

Its kind of hard to look up info about A3! on the internet when A3 is pretty vague and broad in meaning (like A3 paper lol), so it’s best to search it up by using “エースリー”.
