Awesome Possum 3

Awesome Possum posts consist of random internet finds. Any blog posts, articles, videos, podcasts, anything under the sun will be included here. To be clear, this won’t only include games or manga. It will be anything and everything. Some posts may not be necessarily posted this week, but I’ve only discovered about them this week.

So let’s get started. ☺️

Awesome Reads

News/Features

Japanese women’s magazine’s list of traits for an ideal man is both understandable and baffling

THIS. 😂😂😂

I have no words for this so just read this for yourself.

Backstreet Boys’ Howie Dorough Thinks *NSYNC Should Reunite As A Foursome & Wants To Tour With Them

Now, this is something I didn’t expect. I didn’t even know *NSYNC had a performance. 😨

Why Can’t Men Say ‘I Love You’ to Each Other?

Interesting read. 🤔


Gaming

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Needs To Be Ported To Nintendo Switch

I’ve been thinking about this last week. Tokyo Mirage Sessions seems popular enough to have a Nintendo Switch port. When are we gonna have it though?

Splatoon 2 Gets Superpowered With Time Travel vs Teleportation Splatfest

Time for new Splatfest! I still can’t decide which team to join. I’ll probably join Pearl this time.

Otome visual novel Rever dun Manege announced for Switch

Yass for another otome game! There’s not much information yet though I quite liked the character design for the guys.

Japanese Game Retailer Talks About Otome Devs Moving From PS Vita to Switch

I’m really crossing my fingers that more publishers would consider moving and actually make newer games, not just ports. (though I’m not so sure if otome gamers are convinced to make the move?)


Manga

GALS! Artist Mihona Fujii Draws Grown-up Versions of Characters for Shibuya 109 Collaboration

SQUEALSSSS. I loved Super Gals when I was young! Totally shipping AyaxRei. (no OTP in this manga strip, thought. Just Ran, Miyu, and Aya)

South Korea’s booming ‘webtoons’ put Japan’s print manga on notice

Lately, I’ve been thinking so much about this. I’ve noticed how I’ve been reading more webtoons than manga.

For someone living outside Japan like me, webtoons are fancier in my eyes just because they are more accessible than manga. While the digital format is already quite popular in Japan, not every title will be available as ebook when released. Say, Manga A is released today in print form. The ebook format will be released a couple of months after that… if we’re lucky. Though some titles have simultaneous print and digital release. I mostly observe this for newer mangaka. The point is, not every title is available on both digital and print.

Meanwhile, webtoons can be accessed everywhere, anytime. Plus, the colored pages make the series easier to read.

Mangagamer Updates

I’m super excited about these games!

Sona-nyl because I’m interested in this series. I waited for the translation because I don’t want to miss anything about the story.

The new game from Kalmia8 looks interesting… and I’m lazy to play it in Japanese. Oops.

I’m stoked for the future release of Hashihime! I played this before in Japanese and got frustrated because it’s way too difficult for me www. I felt like there are so many things in the story that I failed to understand…😭
