AFA ID’13 : Indonesian, Otaku, and Crowds

Overall view of the 1st floor. It’s crowded with otaku that makes me really hard to walk. (photo from AFA facebook)

I finally have time to write something lol. This is about the recent event (anime convention) I attended. It’s one of the biggest event for otaku in Indonesia, and probably the only one I’ve ever cared about since last year. For the 2nd time, they make the place bigger and better. There are still some problems though so yeah… The event is held from 6th to 8th September 2013. I only came on the 2nd day aka Saturday, 7th September 2013.

Otomate Moar Special Pack : DiaLovers Limited V Edition, Hakuoki SSL, and Amnesia World

With the recent news of Playstation VIta TV brought by Sony, I checked the list of playable VITA games, only to find a certain otome game title written “Diabolik Lovers Limited V Edition.” I’m like HAHAHAHAHAHAHA NO at first but with the upcoming Amnesia x Hakuoki special pack, after one second I thought this must be the Vita ver of DiaLovers. I decided to check the website later that night and apparently I was correct.

Rejet + Otomate News

Website and Commission

Heya peeps. So not long after I posted the post below, I’ve decided some things in the past 2 months. or something like that.

Remember the thing about merging otoge contents with other games such as jrpg? welp I don’t see it working in here so I’m moving unrelated otoge contents into a new site called Remocon+. It’s still empty atm, and I’ve only designed the banners but it’s midnight and I’ll fix things by tomorrow. If you’re a fangirl but likes to kickass on other games as well, drop by to visit sometimes 😀 I will ravel not only jrpg, but other genres as well that I usually play. That’s for the website update. As for the banner in Tsukihana, there’s an unrelated otoge picture besides Norn9 lol, but I won’t take it off coz I’m lazy. Unless I made a new banner in the near time, it stays up there.

Another thing I’d like to offer is a commission. Let’s be honest here I’m currently a NEET coz I’ve graduated high school but not exactly a university student as well at the moment. I’ve gone through freshmen program but I’m not officially studying there yet. I’d like to get a job, but only what I can do. I draw fanarts quite a lot and I’ve posted a commission in my dA profile but I’ve got none so far except a friend of mine. The rule is simple, you ask, I draw, you pay. That’s it.

If you’re interested, I’m opening about 4 slots at the moment, which are still empty.  You can check all the details you need in here. You can read what I will draw and what I won’t draw. How the payments work and so on. If you decided or you wanted to ask more, you can ask here, or e-mail me at melancholy.rissa@gmail.com. If you have a dA account, you can post it there as well. Anything works really.

Thanks for the attention! I apologize if we post things so few and uh, long XD

Otome Game Review : Norn9 Norn + Nonette [Kuga Mikoto]

Norn9 Norn + Nonette | Cero C | Otomate | PSP [Kuga Mikoto]

Website

Behold! 2 months delayed post! XD I’m really sorry, I actually finished Mikoto about 1+ week after Koharu but I got lazy in writing orz. I’ll try to finish Nanami  (I’m having otoge block?) soon when I’m at least away from my comp or PS3. I’ll tell more on the next post.

When you’re still playing as Sorata and choose to come with Kuga Mikoto (CV. Takagaki Ayahi), they will find a place for him to stay since the rooms are limited. We know where he’s missing to now, he lives together with the chicks of the ship since the door is small but has a proper bed for him XD In Mikoto’s route, you’ll encounter the boy who attacked the ship after the first earthquake Sorata felt. Sorata ran away with Sakuya and Itsuki, while Mikoto was facing Natsuhiko, who actually invited her to join his side instead. After refusing his invite, he threatened her to join him, or he will blow the ship. On the other side, Sakuya told Sorata to go to Mikoto’s place. Lady luck on her side, when Sorata joined her and told her Natsuhiko is holding a gun, the guy fled before anything else happened. (more…)

Otome Game Review : Norn9 Norn + Nonette [Koharu]

For the sake of 3 heroines and this blog (I’m a slow player, mind me) I decided to separate this game into 3 posts according to the heroine. I will put the final thoughts later on the last post.

The story started from a boy named Suzuhara Sorata (CV. Abe Atsushi), who’s a realist and a genius at the same time. He was visiting the ministry building along with his school, until he heard a girl’s voice and singing. The next thing he knew, he was time-tripped into Taisho era. He then met a pink haired girl (CV. Fujimura Ayumi) who didn’t know her own name, but she’s going on a trip with a ship. On a sudden breeze, she took him and they arrived in a big flying round ship that has forests and flowing rivers.

Norn9 Norn + Nonette Walkthrough

I decided to write this out of nowhere, and of course I still get help for this. Kudos to norn9084.wiki.fc2 for some endings other than the happy/bad. Another note, you don’t need max gauge for the affection bar. As long as you get more then orange, which means if you’re missing 1 answer it’s still ok. I have proven this because I missed one of Kakeru’s answer and when I got max, the ending stays the same. To get bad ending, you need to get yellow or less, which is most likely half of the bar. Each characters sometimes have more endings than that though.

Otome Game Review : TOKYO Yamanote BOYS Portable Honey Milk

TOKYO Yamanote BOYS Portable Honey Milk | Cero C | Rejet | 5pb. | PSP

TYB from PC is ported to PSP! I wanted to play this but my PC isn’t strong enough coz of its low of everything, so I’m pretty excited when it’s ported to PSP. TYB itself is actually a “confession battle/tournament” where it will choose a girl as the princess every year, and many guys that will compete by confessing/dating the princess.

Our heroine is Chihiro (whose name is never default in the game but whatever xD), who is chosen as this year’s princess. Because they said 9 is too many, they decided to part it for 3 guys, and in Honey Milk we have entry number 1-3. They are Ninomiya Yuuto, Misaki Kotaro, and Momose Ayumu.

Updates + About Reviews

I’M FINISHED WITH MY EXAMS HOORAY

after a few months of journey with tryouts and studying and procastinating, I’m finally finished ; v ; the announcement if I pass or not will be published a month later. but for now I just wanna enjoy my free time, doing useless stuffs (anime marathon, gaming, drawing fanarts).

I WILL TRY TO FINISH ANY OTOGE ASAP. I promise this really. I want to publish at least one review before I started exams but my mood to play any otoge perished back then since I cannot get myself to finish Solomon’s Ring. but I will try to make myself a masochist again finish it. if you people have any recommendation of good otome games (PSP preferred), please let me know. I know I put lots of games in my backlog but I can’t get myself to finish them.

Another thing I want to ask to readers out there is this. besides otome game, I’m a huge gamer of JRPG or other games, but I mostly play JRPG. therefore, I decided to make a blog to review/drabbles about them. the question is, is it better to put it in here as well, or to separate them? just vote the answer here and I will decide.

EDIT : the results are in. it’s decided that I will review other genre games as well. so I’ll probably post something soon (non otome game). thank you for those who voted!
