Awesome Possum 7

Time for another Awesome Possum!

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

What Makes a Good Translation? – Introduction

That I wonder too. When I first read my first BL novel, it struck me how the translator translated ‘sama’ to ‘Mr.’ Technically, it’s not wrong. But it didn’t seem right either since the word didn’t quite catch the nuance of ‘sama,’ much less explain why the character used that word.

Anyways, I’m rambling. Just go ahead, read and follow the series!

QuinRose // A history lesson and some thoughts

Ooh, that was enlightening. Young’uns may also benefit in reading this, polishing their knowledge of otome gaming industry.

Otome Games I Wish Had an Anime Adaptation

If any of these games would have an anime, I’d go watch them in a heartbeat.

Atlus Has No Plans To Bring Persona 5 Royal To Other Platforms; On Carryover DLC From Persona 5

Did you hear my heart breaking?

There goes all of my hopes for a P5 Switch edition. (yes I’m still clinging to that hope even after Atlus burned me with the P5R news lol)

Splatoon 2’s Next North American Splatfest Is A Mythical Battle Between Unicorn vs. Narwhal

LOL idk. I kinda prefer the UK one? But I’ll be on Team Unicorn… probably.

Store more books and comics with a discounted Amazon Kindle Paperwhite ‘Manga Model’

This is so cool with its larger internal memory and faster page turn. But of course, Japan being Japan, it’s only available there because Amazon JP wouldn’t let foreigners buy from them (I think we can, but only for a limited time or number of titles. I’m not sure, but it’s limited.)

Want to keep your sexy manga collection a secret from movers? This otaku has an idea

I’d definitely keep this in mind when I pack my BL collection.

EXILE AKIRA marries Taiwanese actress Lin Chi-ling

OH MY GOSH. I had a girl crush with Lin Chi-ling during the airing of Moon Lovers drama.

Otome Games

So apparently, Otomate Party 2019 was last weekend and they dropped tons of PV. Here’s some from their Youtube site.

ビルシャナ戦姫 ~源平飛花夢想~ (Birshana Senki ~Genpei Hikamusou~)

When I saw RED Entertainment, I was already 50% interested in this game. The other half groaning for the upcoming headache brought about by the kanji because of the historical setting lol.

Then an ossan came, me being “ha. Ossa–” then going “ASLKDFJ?” when I saw Umehara Yuichirou’s name as the seiyuu. So now, consider me 60% interested.

Then I rewatched the PV, and saw that the director is the same as the one from Jyuuzaengi AND Kenka Banchou Otome which were both my favorite games (KBO’s first game at least) so my interest skyrocketed to 75%. 😉

幻奏喫茶アンシャンテ (Gensou Kissa Enchante)

I hope this game lives up to the PV with its seemingly interesting characters and wonderful art. The art is gorgeous!

ピオフィオーレの晩鐘 -Episodio1926- (Piofiore no Banshou -Episodio1926-)

Hmm, the first game is not included? Just a sequel? 🤔

Collar×Malice for Nintendo Switch

YASSS. This is already on my to-buy list.

キューピット・パラサイト (Cupid Parasite)

This is giving me Glass Heart Princess vibe for some reason. I hope there’ll be more info soon!

時計仕掛けのアポカリプス (Tokei Jikake no Apocalypse)

The narration sounded ominous…and I loved it!

DAIROKU:AYAKASHIMORI

Oooh, yokai.

…I’m not really interested but the art looks cool so who knows. I might end up playing this… someday.

明治活劇 ハイカラ流星組 -成敗しませう、世直し稼業- (Meiji Katsugeki Haikara Ryuuseigumi -Seibaishimaseu Yonaoshi Kagyo)

This is a mouthful! Maybe because of the era, it gave me the impression of this game and thought it will suck. 😓

スペードの国のアリス ~Wonderful White World~

スペードの国のアリス ~Wonderful Black World~

THAT QUINROSE REBORN LOGO. OMG.

I hope they’ll port other Quinrose games too~. I’m happy for the QR staff if they are really all under Otomate now. I’m just hoping for the best. But we’ll have to wait and see if this is a good move.

オランピアソワレ (Olympia Soiree)

I think this was already announced before? IIRC, this is from the same staff as the people behind Nil Admirari. I won’t get my hopes up then seeing as Nil Admirari is kinda all over the place.

I did not include the mobile games, Amnesia, and Hakuoki port because I’m not interested in any of those. You can also check out Siliconera’s post for the summary.

片恋いコントラスト ―collection of branch― (Kataomoi Contrast -collection of branch-)

Apparently, this is part of the Triangle Project which focuses on love triangles. I’ve been eyeing this one since the PC release because the art looks straight from an old school shoujo manga with a simple storyline. And I’m all about simple storylines lately.

BROTHERS CONFLICT Precious Baby for Nintendo Switch

I’m interested because I haven’t played any ports of Brothers Conflict but my interest plummets down every time I remember how the novel ended.

SIMS 4

50% OFF EXPANSION PACKS & MORE!

Yaaaaaas. I can finally buy that Parenthood pack and continue my 100 baby MPREG edition. 😏

ISLAND LIVING OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION & FEATURES!

Welllllll. As much as I’m not thrilled with the new expansion pack, I can say that this is still interesting what’s with the new career which can make an effect on the surroundings of the island.
