Embracing Every Stereotype and Reviewing “Magic-kyun! Renaissance” (sub)

I cannot believe I haven't reviewed this title. If anyone seeks an example of shoujo that makes obvious almost every facet and/or stereotype of the genre, I can think of no better show to suggest. That doesn't mean that Magic-kyun is some pinnacle of anime, but rather that it makes its shoujo elements so incredibly … Continue reading Embracing Every Stereotype and Reviewing “Magic-kyun! Renaissance” (sub)

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Party Day!) *first attempt*

Dear Anime Compatriots, It's over. It's over and I just... https://youtu.be/mNZzt5Vcsbs Yeah. He was a yandere. Jumin Han was a yandere. I credit the game makers in that it incredibly well done, honestly reminiscent of Toma's 0 to 60 transformation, so I liked it a lot, but still... wow. I did not expect that much … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Party Day!) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Days 9 & 10) *first attempt*

Dear Anime Compatriots, I cannot say this post will be spoiler free. I'm combining the posts for days 9 and 10 with my own musings, and I'll give you fair warning that if you're not down for potential spoilers, skip to day 11 (aka Party Day!) tomorrow. Okay, so I had a feeling for the … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Days 9 & 10) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 8) *first attempt*

Dear Anime Compatriots, When a cat is the only thing that's stopping your leading man from going full-yandere mode on your MC... I can't say much from today I because I need to try and avoid massive spoilers, but... Jumin is getting really creepy when he accidentally let's things slip about how the MC "couldn't … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 8) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 7) *first attempt*

Dear Anime Compatriots, Before I go anywhere with today's commentary, I offer advice for Jumin's route: 1. Elizabeth the 3rd is a treasure. Recognize that fact. 2. Jumin has emotions just like everyone else. Defend him, but help him recognize those emotions in a calm, collected way. 3. It is okay (and you are encouraged!) … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 7) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 6) *first attempt*

Ha Ha ha Ha Dear Anime Compatriots, So sleep. Oh my gosh. Just wanna sleeepppp..... I didn't post yesterday, but I got a lot of things done that I needed to get done and still managed to successfully complete all my chats, so that's something. Now it's time to backtrack and explain what day 6 … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 6) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 5) *first attempt*

Dear Anime Compatriots, I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw this image appear after the recent day 5 game download: Thank goodness! I saved just before this point, so worse comes to worse, I can reload my save and at least begin on Jumin's route again without losing all the sleep from the … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Jumin’s Route –Day 5) *first attempt*

Mystic Messenger Hell (Deep Route –Day 4) *first attempt* -Jumin-

Dear Anime Compatriots, I am afraid that I've made a critical error; in the time that's passed since my last playthrough, I had forgotten that it IS possible to earn negative hearts, though I don't think this applies in the common/deep route. More importantly, I've been purposely missing out on everyone's hearts but Jumin's, and … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Deep Route –Day 4) *first attempt* -Jumin-

Mystic Messenger Hell (Deep Route –Day 3) *first attempt* -Jumin-

Dear Anime Compatriots, That bolding of font was accidental, but I'm tired, so it's staying that way... I was almost asleep. I was going to sleep, alarms be darned, and planning on waking up as I had to, yes, but going to sleep because I. AM. SO. TIRED... But then I remembered that, while I … Continue reading Mystic Messenger Hell (Deep Route –Day 3) *first attempt* -Jumin-

The Contrary Musings of Iba Hachiro (Or, “a monster of the lascivious kind”) —Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms Drabble

"He bolts upright with a moan or a gasp..." A/N: This drabble is rated M. I don't read smut, and I don't write smut, but this arc is critical to the development of one of my favorite Hakuouki characters, and it couldn't *not* be touched upon if I hoped to do him justice. Like the … Continue reading The Contrary Musings of Iba Hachiro (Or, “a monster of the lascivious kind”) —Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms Drabble
