Oh lookie!~ It’s Rejet again yay! Wow, so many new series, I’m sooooo~ impressed, ufufufu, ahahaha!
Truth is, I completely forgot about Rejet until I saw my twitter flooded with it after my part-time job. And I’ve come to the conclusion that Rejet is no longer worth supporting. Yes no longer worth supporting. I said it twice! Reasons being:
- The hired artists are getting dull
- Continued milking of idols, diabo, ayakashi, <whatever else they can milk>
- No effort to hire new seiyuus because everything has become seiyuu fanservice and they don’t give a shit.
Even so, let’s take a look at the new series. (so we all can laugh at its lameness!)
1. Icchibanketsu [Web browser game]
Oh look who copied Touken Ranbu!~~ How original is Rejet?!
**Having one of the illustrators as Teita is not gonna make me interested, sorry! Besides, I don’t see the appeal of a web browser game that has uneven art – someone tell me why anyone would like that.
Didn’t even bother looking up the website.
2) Midnight Jiang Shi [CD series]
W.T.F Now they’re into Chinese vampires? Jiang Shi is what they call vampires in Chinese. And Kyon Shi in the Japanese reading of Cantonese (if my memory serves me right) Give me a break. It’s obviously a rip-off of Satoi’s art and diabolik concept.
PLEASE STAHP (ノД`)
The trembling, shining neon design on the website makes my hate for this series worse. Hate for all vampires eternal worse.
3) Wa ga Te no Hira de Nemure – Occultic Lovers [CD series]
Ahh okay~ this isn’t too bad since I like ayakashi-related ideas, but the colour scheme would have suited a Teikoku or Meiji theme better, and I’m pretty sure Rejet saw the success of their YuuGen Romantica and tried to get close.
Double CDs. Does that mean we can expect more for depth and story progression? Not anymore since I how shitty Lacrimosa turned out. In my opinion, Yuugen had it’s merits but was a shallow story for high-school girls.
Would’ve bought at least one CD if they made effort to bring in new seiyuus, but nope. Rejet is dead on this aspect so I’m not going to buy any CDs from them.
If I’m not wrong, this art looks like the one from Vamwolf Cross
4) Paradise Whisper [CD series]
Some idol shit. Because their zenryoku shounen toriai series did well? The artist is back again for more, good for her.
Everyone wants to be the girlfriend of an idol huh?! No I don’t give a damn.
5) Dear Vocalist [CD series]
Somemore idol shit?! Yay ohmygah, let’s save dat dying band! Heroine is supposed to support the band who are told they only have a last song to sing. Reminds me of some shitty game I played recently called Root Rexx.
Artist of Wasurenagusa and Alice=Alice. Now, can you guess how many are going to buy this simply for it’s art?
Talking about suou sensei’s art, I’m excited for Bad Apple Wars! Yay!
6) Honey Liar [CD series]
The first thing that caught my eye is the guy on the right, because he looks like the criminal from Lanpo Kitan anime currently airing, really interesting crime anime! He’s the only interesting fella in this series.
The heroine is forced to be the fake lover of some elite guy. What’s this? 3rd rate shoujo manga that gets cancelled on after 2 shots? haha.
7) Criminale F (2nd series) [CD series]
For this Criminale fandisc, they added 2 new guys to what I would call a ‘little better than average’ CD series. And one of them has been erased to create curiosity, I’m sure.
Well who cares!
8) Happy Sugar Idol [CD series]
A fandisc series from Happy Sugar Darlin’. With 2 new guys and mero’s cute art.
I did like this series, so I’m alright with it getting milked (But I won’t be buying it. I didn’t even buy Teikoku Star’s fandisc!) But oh wait. IDOLS AGAINNNNNNN?!
In addition to the above, Rejet’s new PSV game, ‘MoshiKami’ has announced their cast. A disappointing cast that is already everywhere in the CD series. Depending on more information, I’m 70% sure I won’t be playing it.
Rejet’s glory is long gone. BWS and KengaKimi was one of the best VN creations but Rejet has gone to the masses by feeding titilation-craved fangirls their Do.S, blood-suckers and idol fetishes. What happened to you, really? Maybe they will get better, but until they do, I’m staying away from them.
