Collar x Malice Guide

DOWNLOAD FULL GUIDE: CollarxMalice_SEMN Guide Hello, hello! I’ve decided to post a complete guide for all of the available endings in Collar x Malice. This guide is based on a couple of Japanese resources which I’ve done my very best to translate and organize. I’ll update this post once I get my hands on the English…

Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen: A Guide

In response to the interest I’ve seen in my previous post, Otome Games: Untranslated Edition, I’ve decided to post a full guide for Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen. I’ve included easy to follow flowcharts for every ending in the game, useful vocabulary, and small, spoiler-free snippets about the setting and characters.

Otome Games: Untranslated Edition

There are quite a lot of non-Japanese these days who have an interest in both the language and the media of the country – I myself included. Unfortunately, learning the language and finding the best ways to put your knowledge to use can be rather difficult, which is why I’ve decided to make this guide for those of you who have some knowledge of Japanese and a bit of patience, as well as a desire to play Otome games.

Cliches in Anime/Manga

The sheer amount of anime and manga on the market today makes it inevitable that certain story points will be repeated here and there – but there are some “cliches” that seem to crop up absurdly often. This is a list of tropes (in)famous to both manga and anime – the stereotypes we love or…

Disgaea 5: A Review

Disgaea 5 is the penultimate Disgaea game. If you have played and enjoyed any of the previous installments, there is absolutely no reason not to pick up this particular version. It greatly improves upon long-standing mechanics while at the same time adding heaps of new functionality and systems that are guaranteed to make the grind even more addicting than it ever was before (and that’s saying something). Disgaea 5 is one of the few games on the market that you can quite literally sink hundreds of hours into playing, and thus one of the biggest bang-per-buck investments out there. But that all depends on what type of person you are, and where your interests lie… And to find that out, you might as well read on, dood.

Collar x Malice: A Review

Collar x Malice is one of the more original Otome games I’ve played, featuring a more realistically paced story and interesting, mold-breaking characters. The artwork is incredibly high quality, the soundtrack is fittingly woven into each scene, and the voice acting is absolutely superb. As far as Otome games go – and perhaps even as far as Visual Novels go in general – Collar x Malice holds it own somewhere around the top.

Recommended Manga Guide Vol. 1

I often feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of Manga available on the international market, spanning countries and languages and crossing the expanse of the internet to reach the english-speaking world. I have read a lot of it – more than I care to count or even consider – but there have only been comparatively few…
