why?

May 31, 2010

Ok time for a random post.

Why does every doujin and bisoujo game artist draw To Heart 2 fan art? What is so great about it, it’s boring nothing special. Why cant they draw fanart for Family Project or the orginal To Heart? So no Family Project is not the greatest 18+ visual novel of all time, it’s To Heart 2 Another Days. Here some examples from my favorite doujin artists

Hiro Suzuhira

Mikeou

Aoi Nishitama

Naru Nanao

you get the idea. Even the author of Girls Bravo has drawn To Heart 2 fanart. I admit it has cute charachters, but To Heart 2 to me is just worthless and not a masterpiece everyone thinks it is. I want to see these artists draw Matsuri from Family Project

Gintama part 1 DVD review

May 28, 2010

So yay Gintama is out on R1 DVD, here is a review of it

packghing- A standard DVD case with a cool picture with Gintoki in action, on the back has a picture of Kagura and Shinpachi, which will be on the cover of cellction 2. The two discs are held on each side, the pictures on them are from some of the Japnese DVD releases.

story- Edo has been invaded my aliens AKA the amanto, 20 years after the war, Gintoki Is trying to get by as an odd jobs man, and will do anything for money, He meets Shinpachi Shimura after Gin-san ruined Shins job, he helps Shins sister from working at a shady nightlub. And they along with an alien Kagura are the Yoruza or Odd Jobs Gin.

sound- Gintama has all sorts of music, from rock and roll to country to just some strange songs, and of course some bad ass rock for action scenes. The subtitle and eye catcher all have a rock flavor.  As with most Sentai Filmworks releses there is no english dub, however with Clannad and several other titles, if Gintama does well it could get a dub, however I am not holding my breath. Gintama seems hard to dub, with all it’s Japnese jokes and langue puns, might not translate well in english, for example the joke where Prince Hata is called a baka prince or idiot in Japnese, in the subtitles it was changed to pin head prince. the voice acting does well to handle the nonsence. because there is a lot of it.

translation- you know like most anime DVD releases in the US, no honophics, names are westernised. Nothing ususal to point there, I metoned above abought the pin head prince joke above

overall- Highly recamended, I hate why anime subtitles have to westernise the names. Isao Kondo and Sougo Okita just sound akward, Beisdes the way Japanese names are done sounds a lot cooler than their western counterparts.

Eroge review- Pick Me Honey!

May 14, 2010

Hands down the worst bisoujo game I have ever played. When I dicovered how good I’m Going To Serve You 4 was, I thought ither Traubulance games would be good, I picked this game up at Katsucon at 2010, hoping for another good time, however this game was horrible.

story- D, typical your average joe hero, borthday’s coming up, so he wants to have a party with tons of hot zettai ryoikki girls. However dady says you are to take over the family bussiness so Reiji (the average joe) has to marry one of the girls in the room (Hazuki, Chihiro, and Mio), so basically they have sex with you untill you decide who you want, and have more sex. After you have the girls you can go after the adults as well, (Yoriko and Fubuta).

Art- A, the only goood thing in this game is the art. Just like all Traubulance games the art is stunning, they went all out to make the art great. The backrounds are well detailed, and the charachter art is stunning.

sound- C, the music is not as good as I’m Going To Serve You 4, heck it sounds typical like in a lot of bisoujo games, and unlike their earlier games, when the curent backround songs ends, it loops again, a good improvement. The voice acting is good, however backround charachters arent voiced, like Reiji and his father, some girls in the classrooms are voiced. There are several nayghty words bleeped out in the sex scenes, must be Japnese censorship laws.

system- A, you know you read the text make choices, the way I like it. And you can skip messages and save, plenty of save slots. Usually at the beging of the day you pick the hroine you want to hang with, in that screen they are in chibi form.

Ero- F, so much and it’s so disturbing, instead of a nice romanitc ride on a fercial (sorry typo) whell with Hazuki, you have to have sex with her instead. You have anal sex with Mio, and when she took a bath and scremed you dont want to know why she scremed.  And you have to have sex with Chirhiro when she is trying to cut carotts for dinner. I think you get the idea on how sick this game is. Oh and after you finish the hroines you get a harem route (yay more nasty sex). So yea if you love creappy sex scenes this game is for you.

overall- D, I am sure there are worse games then this like Water Closet, and there are several impovments from their ealier games like the music loops again when it ends, and having a staff roll. But even thast does not save it from getting near the bottom of the shit barel, so if you are looking for a good Trabulance game go for I’m Going To Serve You 4 or Tottemo Phermone, avoid this one at all costs, unless you like creapy sex romps.
