Kokuchou no Psychedelica – Game Review

I’m so glad I played this after Hyakka Yakou since Hyakka would go down to a 1 star if I played this first. To prevent spoilers, I’ll put up only really irrelevant CGs and those already on the website. If you get spoiled you’ll hate me.  I think it’s been a while since I’ve been so interested to finish a game by a few all-nighters. This is going to be a guide more than a summary, since I don’t want to spoil those who intend to play this game. So when you see a blank space, just scroll all the way down for my system guide (this is really important), mini-game guide video and play order recommendation.

I was really interested in this game for a couple of reasons, and whether they were proved right in the game is for you to find out (if you do play it).

1) This is a creepy escape game whereby the characters fall in love by protecting each other

2) I felt that the heroine would have an evil side

3) Hikage seems to have a power eye and Hikage & Yamato are smashing hot

Happy Sugar Darlin’-Ebihara Sora, Tsukiyasha-Jyou Jyou Gento & Criminale-Chiave CD Reviews

This is a compilation post because I’m lazy to do separate reviews (I’m playing Hyakka), but just want to stop by before I disappear for a while.

First up: Happy Sugar Darlin’, which I’ve not done any reviews yet because this is the first CD I’m listening to from the series. My first impression: Absolute seiyuu fanservice. As usual I’ll show pictures of the Cd jacket for every first copy of the series I buy. As usual, we have amusing Cd jackets from Rejet:

I think Sora’s CD jacket is the nicest, luckily for me. When I got the CD, I wondered why the cover was so dark, since the art looked much brighter on the website. I opened it hastily and Tralalalala~~!!  Continue reading

Snow Black – Review

Again, a little reminder, this is a review, not a translation, so there will be only be summaries and my thoughts on the game.

This second QR game I play was a much better experience than Satomi, but I have the same complaint: too many silly endings, one-style-fashion sprite, the presence of a random JiiJii character that disgusts me and QR style ‘every playable character had the same storyline except for the icha parts’. But QR’s heroines are always hilarious and not the goody-two shoes (thank you CERO D?) who live to please others, which made it amusing to play through.

djdjdjdj

Our heroine Lib is the adopted daughter of the country Tressor’s royal family, making her the first princess of the country. Before 12, she lived with the trash of a father who treated her like a slave. But she had always been in love with a man who treated her gently and he would come on the snowy days to comfort her.

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

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

Diabolik Lovers: More Blood – Review

Diabolik Mosquitoes  Lovers

Review of this game:

(*´Д`)ハァハァ + ( ゚皿゚)キーッ!!

The end.

———————————————————-

This is a review, not a translation, so at best I will tell you what I liked about the game and a short summary of what happened.

I was really looking forward to playing Ruki but I didn’t feel Sakurai’s voice suited that character. His low voice sounds the same in almost every character which doesn’t make me feel like I’m playing a new guy. (Urgh the effects of Mejojo -_-) The gameplay allows you to play several characters at once in a non-confusing way, which means if you get tired of being sucked by one of them, you can always get sucked by another (lol)

The art is kinda pinky which is girl-stereotype but I like it nevertheless. The original games was horrible with all the abuse, And here we have an additional set of vampires who were originally humans and so a little more human. (In fact we have the awesome Azuazu)

Ayato

Sadistic Ore-Sama abuses the heroine with words (ok, which of them doesn’t…) but he really just doesn’t want to admit his interest in her. He is too focused on seeing her as food though he actually takes interest in her as a woman. I actually like him quite alot. While trying to prove to himself he didn’t need her, he tried to stay away from sucking her blood Continue reading

Dot Kareshi~We’re 8 bit lovers! I + II + III

This game was a little short for me, but setting was interesting so decided to try it out. The length probably isn’t a problem for most people since it’s probably a filler games, or they like Namikawa, or the concept itself is interesting. To be honest, I started this game because I love playing RPGs and I like Matsukaze, Morikubo, Yamaguchi and Toriumi’s voice 😀 Namikawa and Hirakawa and fine, but they’ve been out so much that I’ve gotten bored of their voices lol.

The music was really cute and the battle scenes were not bad. And the fact that they all just want to make a move on her is hilarious. The romance was lacking for me because, well… it’s only an hour’s worth of play for the first character and less once you skip the common routes… But as a player of RPGs I gotta give the heroine some credit. Maxing levels just by grinding even though often running out of potions… Besides that, making them walk all the way without telerocks or carriages… switching off the effects… I can see why they are angry at her 😀 ahaha Continue reading

Meiji Tokyo Renka Review + Summary

Originally a keitai game, Broccoli adapts it into Psp with dummy head mic!

The heroine, another bimbotic heroine with a tongue for beef, goes to a festival and is walking around when suddenly a weird magician appears in front of her and tells her to volunteer for his special trick show. He puts her into a box and counts to three and poof! she wakes up later after a deep sleep in some park. The magician finds her and tells her this is the Meiji Era and she is currently in Hibiya Park in Tokyo. Not believing it, she runs to find nobody, no cars and hardly any people. She looks for a train station and gets told by an uncle she’s wearing really shameless clothing so she walks on and on until she gets really lost. The magician chases after her and introduces himself as Charlie, and tells her that he can only send her back the next time  red moon shows, which is exactly one month away. The heroine gets hungry and Charlie suggests they should head to RokuMeiKan, where a party is currently going on and they should sneak in to eat for the day anyway.
