[Binary Star] First Impressions

Kamiya Yun
Heta translation at the end of the post. :3

I’m starting another otome game! Hehe. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve played one.

Binary Star is released in the early years of PS Vita. It also seems like one of the best games for the console. This game has been on my Vita since 2016 but I’ve only gotten to play it now. 😌

Here’s the summary from VNDB:

When she was 7 years old, what Sorano Fuu (the protagonist) saw in her living room were the lifeless bodies of her beloved parents, who had died at the hands of an unknown culprit.

 

Taken in by a group of people known as “Tenshi”, Fuu asks them why her parents were killed. One of the Tenshi said to the young Fuu, “Your parents were “Dealers”, who are people that sell “Hoshi”. That is why they were killed.

 

Her parents were criminal vendors of the illegal-to-sell, taboo Hoshi on a large scale. This truth greatly troubled Fuu, and so she made a vow – to atone for her deceased parents’ crimes.

 

Now, the 20-year-old Fuu is a Tenshi who protects Akatsuki, a town in Cloud.

 

There was something she saw through the many missions she completed with her colleagues. That “something” is their sad pasts, all of which revolve around Hoshi.

 

They are still bound by the past; will they be able to break free of the curse of their pasts?”

From Lezhin:

Childhood friends Ginu and Yubin live in separate apartments in separate buildings right next to each other – so close, in fact, they can talk to each other and see into each other’s apartments through their windows.

Awesome Possum 1

Heya~!

Here’s a new feature post which I’m not sure if I’ll be doing this kind of thing weekly. But we’ll see. 😉

This is a mid-week post because I forgot to post last Sunday (oops) lol. This means, that some of the posts are not necessarily posted today or this week.

So let’s get started. 😊

A Quick Question…

Hi guys!

Lately, I’ve been thinking that my posts have turned into a non-sense, directionless blabbering. Despite writing what I liked and didn’t about a series, I still feel that sometimes posts somewhat turned to drag.

So I’ve been wondering if I should just write a more concise post? Perhaps using The Good, The Bad, The Ugly kind of thing?? Though that’s pretty negative. I might use something else. Best stuff, Good Stuff, Neutral Stuff or something like that?

What do you guys think?

EDIT:

Decided to have a format and write the positive, negative, and neutral things that I liked in that aspect. For example, I’ll talk about the plot of the series. Then list the things that I liked about it. You’ll see more of it in the upcoming posts. 🙂

[Webcomic] The Voice Next Door

The Voice Next Door

From Tappytoon:

I quit my job, became a voice actor, and drastically changed my looks — all to catch the attention of dreamy Jaehyun from work. But he doesn’t know I’m me! What he does know is that I dub his favorite animation, and adores the way I sound. But now he’s my next door neighbor too?! A perfect chance for neighborly love!

Picture this, the voice actor of your 2D husbando lives next door. What’s more, he is head-over-heels in love with you! Heaven, right?

That must have been what Jaehyun feels when he meets his ideal guy, Junseok. He’s got the face, the body, and the voice. But he seems to be hiding something from his past…

Happy Easter! (and some TokiMemo News)

Happy Easter everyone!

I really wanted to share this news but I was fasting for the Lenten Season so nope. /o\

So this week, I came across a couple of news about Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side 4! I was so shook! Imagine, it’s been years, YEARS, back in the good old days of PSP, since the last time Konami released anything about TMGS (I’m not counting the Tokimeki Restaurant).

But here we are in 2019 with TMGS 4 set to release in 2020! Yassss.

Let’s hope right in for the TMGS news!

[Webcomic] Make Me Bark

Image from Lezhin

I was skeptical when I first came across Make Me Bark. The cover and the title made it seem like it’s a hardcore BDSM comic. I was not in the mood for heavy stories.

Turns out, it’s actually an enjoyable story with perverted characters.

From Lezhin:

Sungjoon’s not doing great, but life is looking up. His job at the convenience store pays enough for him to afford his own place. A tiny, smelly, and laughably cheap place, but he loves it. He loves it right up until he walks home and finds it on fire. Unfortunately, things get worse as he realizes he doesn’t know anyone in the city who can help. Wait, no… that’s not right. Actually, he does know Lee Hyo-in. A rich kid from his university who is, coincidentally, looking for a roommate. Well, not a roommate. More of a… dog.

[7’scarlet] 11 Things I Missed

Replaying is something I don’t really do often. Doing it for 7’scarlet made me realized that there were bits and pieces of details I missed the first time I played the game. It’s a fine discovery and it made me appreciate the writing through these foreshadowing more.

[7’scarlet] Impressions of an RPG Gamer

PS Vita’s life has come to an end. I am sad about that fact as it’s my favorite gaming platform ever since it replaced PSP. All of my favorite Visual Novels, especially otome games, are PS Vita releases.

To think, otome games have just been localized in the Western in recent years.

If you’re new in the otome gaming world and feels pretty bummed out that it lost one of its primary gaming platforms, fret not.

Companies like Intragames are porting VNs, most importantly otome games, to PC via Steam. For this post, I partnered with Intragames to bring you their latest release, 7’scarlet.

7’scarlet is a mystery otome game set in the far-flung country of Okunezato. The heroine Ichiko Hanamaki, visits the place to search for clues for her missing brother. As she delves deeper into the country, she uncovers the many mysteries and secrets of Okunezato and its residents.

I’ve already played this game last year. Since I’ve already uncovered the secrets once, I’ve decided to play this with my good friend for a different POV. So here’s Nami!
