5th Year Anniversary + sharing about Japan

5ya-3

So…8 months flew past without us posting much, and the 5th year anniversary arrived last month. ;; Well, there were some changes in RL, but to be honest the bigger reason is probably that I have very low motivation at the moment. (Yet I’m wasting time on mobile games) But I do hope to at least finish something this year haha. Though if you don’t mind posts about mobile games, I can write something up too.

We haven’t prepared anything for this year. But we see that this blog is still getting views and the few comments here and there, probably thanks to our old posts. So thank you so much for that!

It’s not much, but below I plan to share some places about Japan. More specifically, stores which otome fans like myself may be interested in. Then again, you may already know them, but for those who don’t – hope you find it interesting!

Webcomic!!

Time for some shameless plug! (lol not really)

I’ve finally put up a webcomic!!

It’s about a fine dining restaurant getting abducted to an alien food paradise where they are forced to serve food to unfamiliar clients. In a nutshell, it’s like Gordon Ramsay is the star of Star Wars. If you like sci-fi, space, food, aliens and a wacky plot with a touch of drama and comedy, please check it out!

Here’s the link: Ristorante Galattica

I update every saturday, but i might be changing the day. Mainly it’s a couple of pages weekly.

I know I haven’t been posting reviews of otoges for an extremely long time. I don’t really play otoges much currently mainly due to work and life and decreasing interest in completing my backlog. And I haven’t been very interested in otoges as much as I used to. They are all just the same cookie cutters to me and the characters are bland. Maybe I’ve outgrown those romance stories that I’ve been kinda desensitised lol. Sounds like i hate otoges but no, I just wish companies will step up their game and write better stuff with interesting characters and stories. That said, I’m still looking at otoges mainly for their art and character designs, due to the nature of my work. And I’m still loyal to Neoromance games though, so… LOL.

On the other hand, I’ve been playing more western games like Batman Arkham City, Wolf Among Us, and Fran Bow etc. So I MIGHT be doing reviews of those games instead. MIGHT.

2015 in review + Happy 2016!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

We survived another year! As usual, it’s been a quiet year but thank you to everyone for sticking with us. As expected, certain otome anime and English localisations keep topping our stats.😄

Anyway, hopefully I will be able to update soon with another review. (I have an amazingly long backlog with some amazing games, I think, which I really want to play.) Thanks again for following us, and hope that the new year is fantastic for us all!
