Oh My Charms!

My eyes lit up and sparkled like those of Emmeline (the one in the bottom row wearing a white coat) when Tamagobuns revealed the completed Silent Voices chibi charm designs few days ago. It’s very satisfying to see the Martasco cast with their choice of weapon.

Nightshade is Bittersweet

After playing this game, I needed some time to distance myself from it. Never have I ever came across a visual novel that all the characters were well-written. Plus, I just want to hug them all to shield them from what had happened to them.

Nightshade is one of the few major Japanese otome available on Steam. It is also known as Hyakka Hyakurou Sengoku Ninpou-chou which can be heard said by various of characters when entering the main menu. The default setting randomly selects the voice. Though, you can change it to hearing your favorite character’s voice in the settings. I just left it as it is since all the voices are lovely to hear. Most of the visual novel is voiced including minor characters and the prologue narration. Impressive! The only character who doesn’t have a VA is Enju. Whether an MC is voiced or not is not a make or break deal for me.

Layton is back?!

Professor Layton logo edit with question markThe Professor Layton series is one of the few games I play. Characters are intriguing to look at because of how strangely nonstandard they’re drawn yet works for the universe they are put in. The story has lots of twists in it which makes me want to see what else the creators have in store for us. Though, I was quite sad when I thought Azran Legacy was the last one in the series.

Summer 2017 Anime Final Thoughts (Part 1)

As the season starts to wind down, it’s time that I write about my thoughts on each series. Since I had 14 shows to watch this season, I have many favorites for every occasion.

Watched immediately on the day it’s aired: Ballroom e Youkoso and Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu

During dinner: Isekai Shokudou, Tsurezure Children, Centaur no Nayami, and Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun

In-between series: Gamers!

Saved the best for last: Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou

To make it not a one long post, I’ve decided to break it into two posts. The romance series will be discussed first. For the other half, please continue to the next post.

Summer 2017 Anime Update


So far I’ve been enjoying this season’s lineup. Please refer to the previous post if you’re interested in what I’m watching.

Now onto the main topic I want to share with you all today. I’m adding another romance to the list which is Enmusubi no Youko-chan (Fox Spirit Matchmaker)! Would not have discovered it if my usual go-to chart site was down for maintenance a few days ago (and is not tracking this anime’s episode countdown?) which led me to check another site and that’s how I stumbled upon this series that I did not recognized.

If you’re looking for heartbreaking love stories, then this is for you~

Note: This will be my personal watching list for the season and may not contain all romance series! Even though some shows may not be listed here and if you are interested in them, by all means check them out.
