Dear Anime Compatriots, Today, I semi-permanently died the tips of my brown hair a deep purple. About this, I am quite thrilled. It will last between 8 and 15 washings. Now, onto the feature presentation. As I discovered last night, Jaehee gives great game advice. Getting Jumin's route has required me to be quite rude … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Deep Route –Day 2) *first attempt* -Jumin-

Mystic Messenger Hell (Casual Route –Day 10) *first attempt* -Yoosung-

[super spoilers] Dear Anime Compatriots, As I write, Yoosung is being tortured in a high tech cult dungeon by Seven's...childhood friend/brother??... and Seven is calling in V's reinforcements from outside the compound.

Mystic Messenger Hell (Casual Route –Day 7) *first attempt* -Yoosung-

[the basic Yoosung route spoilers, of course] Dear Anime Compatriots, Yoosung still hints at the ability to go full yandere at any moment; Jaehee gets drunk and laments her lack of someone special; Zen and Jaehee both rightly worry about Yoosung's delusional butt. Frankly, the guy is the farthest thing from my type. I mean, … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Casual Route –Day 7) *first attempt* -Yoosung-

Mystic Messenger Hell (Casual Route –Day 2) *first attempt* -Yoosung-
