[Otome Watch] Sega’s Upcoming “Readyyy!” Project – An Idol Raising Project

readyyyprojectbannerSega has announced its latest venture in making contents for the female audience. Back in 2015 Sega released Yumeiro Cast, a female oriented mobile game about musicals, this time they’re jumping in on the “Idol” bandwagon with their ambitious Readyyy! Project. Seeing that it had only just recently been announced, there is not a lot of information about it but that’s what Otome Watch posts are for–I’ll be constantly updating this post when news comes in so keep an eye on this post.

As most of my Otome Watch posts go, I’ll be using images only posted on the official website and will also be referencing articles from Japanese online news like Dengenki Online throughout the post.

I will also be trying my best to translate important information from the website into English, however I am still an amateur so please take my translations with a grain of salt as they are not entirely accurate.

[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.

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).

Rejet’s 2018 Announcements

Photo 16-01-2018, 9 21 05 PM

Pretty much late on this post (more than a week late) but better late than never, haha. I’m not sure if Rejet had another “fes” to announce the new stuff happening this year or they just plain ol’ dumped youtube videos and called it an announcement considering they haven’t updated their site’s latest “events” sections since August 2017.

There’s a couple of old stuff getting some new volumes, its part of Rejet’s policy to milk the popular stuff as best they can, but there’s a couple of new IPs that seem quite interesting so let’s have a look, shall we?

[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.
