Short impression of the "Deep One" Trial (VN)

Short impression of the "Deep One" Trial (VN)

Deep One will the debut title of Nameless which is a new brand under Nexton and the release is set to be on 26. October this year. Though despite that it’s one of the bigger titles to release this year for sure.

The scenario is written by Horinouchi Yuusuke, who also acts as Chief director for the game. All the previous titles where he was involved where Nukige so I doubt much people have...

Musings about the current (financially) state of the VN industry

Musings about the current (financially) state of the VN industry

Lately I’ve been thinking again about the current state of Visual Novels, mostly due to the closure of sprite. I think most people into the medium should have noticed that the industry isn’t doing too well financially at least. Well sprite mentioned the financial side of things as one of the reasons that led them to stop and they are far from being an unknown small developer.

There are plenty...

My thoughts on: Aikagi & Aikagi ~After Days~ (VN)

My thoughts on: Aikagi
& Aikagi ~After Days~ (VN)

Both Visual Novels where released by Azarashi Soft with a year between them, the first title in the series came out in January 2017 and the second one 2018. Azarashi Soft isn’t really that big of a brand I’m not surprised if people haven’t heard of them before. The Amakano Series should be their most well known work. Though they are a brand under Nexton which is releated to some higher...

My thoughts on: Fate/Stay
Night: Heaven's Feel I. presage flower (Anime Movie)


Considering how much Anime there are already of the whole Franchise it’s a bit surprising how long it took for them to do Heaven’s Feel. To get that out right now so far it has been worth the wait. A movie trilogy is also first for the franchise. So far only the first movie with the subtitle “presage flower” is out right now and this is what I’ll be talking about.

For a bit of context Heaven’s...

My thoughts on: Fate/Stay Night (VN)

My thoughts on: Fate/Stay Night (VN)

Chances are that most people who are into otaku media in any form at least heard about Fate/Stay Night already so there likely isn’t a need for a long introduction. Fate/Stay Night was Type-Moon’s first title released as a company instead of a doujin circle. The first version came out a while ago in 2004.

The story revolves around the Holy Grail War in which Servants are summoned to fight with...

Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~

Subarashiki
Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~

While still at the beginning of Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~ (SubaHibi) my thoughts where about how good this work is already and how I should write a Review so more people would read this. After finishing it this changed into ‘how can anyone finish this and write a normal Review about it?’. So I’m not going to, but still trying to get across why this is worth reading.

SubaHibi is an...

My thoughts on Manga / Light Novels i read in November

And here we are already at November. I’m not really happy with those monthly posts so I’m changing that from now on. I’ll continue writing about Manga, Light Novel (and hopefully soon Visual Novels) though.

My thoughts on Manga i read in October

My thoughts on Manga i read in October

Somehow I only read Manga in October so no Light Novels this time. There are also plenty of Manga this time that are done by a Author & Mangaka Duo instead of just a Mangaka. I’ll keep writing Illustration for whoever is drawing them in a Light Novel and Mangaka for whoever is drawing a Manga. As a side effect that should also make obvious which works are Manga and which are Light Novels from...

My thoughts on Manga / Light Novels i read in September

So much for planning what to read, instead I went with mostly reading Manga again. Same as before I’ll use the the list from bookmeter for what I read last month. After some thought I kicked out the actual japanese names in favor of only using the romanization of the titles and adding the names of the creators.

My thoughts on Manga / Light Novels i read in August 

To get this out of the way first: I’m just writing my thoughts to the Manga/Light Novel i read in a given month. So don’t expect to read reviews here. I might write some reviews in the future though. So this is more practice to not fuck up when i want to write one. I guess my english is a bit rusty after mostly consuming stuff in japanese lately, too. I use my bookmeter account to determine...
