Jyuzaengi Engetsu Sangokuden 2 – Review

The system got better here, without having to complete the Peach Garden to move on in the story, and the fiery home background was really to my liking. The music was the same as the first game, with  few more addition of tracks at different places and more character themes. I didn’t like this OP as much as the first game, as Takagaki Ayahi’s vocals here were horrible. Her high note was really forced and jarring to the ears. I never really liked her singing voice, though her continuing in the music industry proves to me that the seiyuu industry sells whatever they can to push up the reputation of seiyuus….

Take note that while the two Jyuza games have never-dying never-aging characters, the real battles spanned around 24 years. This game did make me quite amused, as out of all Chinese history, to this day the battle at Chi Bi remains one of my favourites.

First, since the Chinese and annoying Japanese readings of the characters are quite different, let me re-introduce them, (with random historical bits I remember thrown in)

Liu Bi Army

Liu Bi – Is read Liu Bei in the Chinese way. He was the first emperor of the three kingdoms and known for his benevolence to the country people.

Kan U – Guan Yu. Was a GUY, and was a criminal who fled from his country rofl and joined Liu Bei’s voluntary army. He is worshipped as a god by some Chinese religions.

Chou Hi – Zhang Fei, eventually married Ka Kou En’s niece. His daughter married Liu Bei’s son and became a queen. (Please imagine this game’s Chou Hi doing that. rofl) Continue reading

Chronostacia Translations + Review

Chronostacia’s review/translation/summary/walkthough/guide/whatever-you-call-it. Is here.

The system controls are Otomate-idiot proof, and pretty with all the cogs, especially when you set it on auto mode. If there is a town scene, there will also be random flower petals flying all over the screen (all year round lol). The system music wasn’t as good as they set it out to be on the website, with an OP and ED not very to my liking… but at every click there will be a sound of a clockhand moving. The art of course is lovely, and glowy, suitable for this theme.

Alright enough of me ♪~ <(゚ε゚)> Here goes.

Jyuzaengi Sangokuden – Summary & Review

Jyuzaengi 2 is coming soon, figured I should finish the backlot of the first game and glad I did! (It saved me after the crap called shinobi koi utsutsu) This is one of the games I truly enjoyed, with a plothole-less storyline and a cool heroine that I don’t rage at, and 6 characters with well-developed routes.

* Most CGs are in the video, my media space is filling up lol.

** Main story **

The heroine is a half breed, half human and half Cat-clan, which makes her the only one with black eyes amongst the 300+ catty people living deep in the mountains. But she’s strong, and one of the best warriors in the clan.

One day, Sousou (above) who is the Warlord of a singular province, come to the mountains to look for some bandits. (The yellow cloth bandits, seriously) He discovers the cat people and decide to make up some excuse so he can take them into custody because he knows about the strength of the cat people – they have superhuman fighting abilities, and he wants to use them for his army.

Depending on whose route you’re on, you get to interact with different characters during this scene.

In (left), Chouhi, the childhood friend of the heroine goes to stop Kakouton (blue guy) who is the sub-general of Sousou. In (right), the heroine stops Kakouton herself. In another option, you run to Liubi (below) who is the leader of the cat clan, and you protect him while the fight goes on outside.

In the end, they decide to get under Sousou’s custody and find the bandits to defeat them, so they can clear their name and go back home. They pitch tents somewhere near Sousou’s army and one night, the heroine goes out to look for the bandits. She finds the leader and its revealed he is also a cat

He is trying to overthrow the humans and make the country into the cat’s place, so he hid his ears and used the bandits. Unfortunately, he gets defeated by Chouhi and the heroine, and Sousou pops out from somewhere. Sousou says that they should slice off the ears of Continue reading
