I Date Hot Guys on My iPad: A Love Affair with Virtual Bishies

This post has been a work in progress for over a year, but I could never quite work out how write it out, until the other day when I went to play a game in my backlog and I actually groaned… can you believe that?!

Lately, I’ve been so caught up with all the schedules and reviews, that I’ve kind of lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place: because I love otome games and I want to share that love with the world. Ha ha, it sounds silly when I write it out like that, but it’s been a long time since I really, truly enjoyed playing a game. It’s gotten to be such a chore really, buying games, playing them, writing the reviews, editing… somewhere along the way, playing otome games became a routine… *shudders* it became work and that’s something I never wanted to happen! Sure there have been games that I genuinely liked playing, in fact I played a game the other day that brought back a little of that old spark, but the magic that I had when I first started playing otome games has been gone for a little while now.  So, it’s high time I reminded myself why I fell in love with otome games in the first place, before I wind up resenting them altogether.

Let me warn you guys now, this post is more for me than it is for you guys, I really needed to remember what it was that drew me to otoges. So this won’t be one of those pretty posts that I fuss over endlessly until the wording is just right and expect a lot of “…” so if you’re still with me, I want to write about how I got into otome games…

The Top 5 Manga that made me go… WTF?!

Have you ever read a manga that made you wonder what kind of person could come up with something like this? A manga that made you think, why does this exist? Well I have! Over the years I have read my fair share of manga titles; some good, some bad, and some that had me scratching my head in confusion. But there were a chosen few manga titles that made me go… WTF is this?

wtf

So, because I had some extra time on my hands and because I wanted to share a tiny bit of my suffering, I decided to compile a list of my Top 5 WTF Manga Titles… I don’t necessarily recommend reading all of the titles on this list (unless you’re a glutton for punishment), but there are one or two that weren’t completely terrible. Just a heads up, there is no order, rhyme, or reason to this list. The manga on this list are in the order that I looked them up and that in no way reflects their overall WTF levels…

*Not all of the manga on this list are licensed in English and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing either.*

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 30: An anime I wish never ended and just continued its story

The day is finally here! I did it! I managed to actually finish the 30 Day Anime Challenge in thirty consecutive days!! As much fun as this challenge was, I’m kind of glad that it’s finally over so I can finally relax! So, today’s post is about an anime that I wish would never end…

My pick for today’s prompt is an anime series that I’ve written about before during one of my Fangirl Moment posts… Since there are only two anime related FM posts, it should be obvious which one I picked. So my pick for an anime you wish never ended and just continued its story is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 29: An anime I wish was real

Oh my gosh, the second to last post, I can’t believe I actually pulled off 29 consecutive Anime Challenge posts so far… I thought I’d have slipped up by now, but it never happened! So, today I’m supposed to talk about an anime that I wished was real…

take on me

I’m not much of a fighter, so my pick isn’t Naruto or Bleach or anything like that… I considered a reverse harem anime, because why not… but, stringing along all those bishies at once just seems like a lot more work than I want to deal with. So I went with something that I’ve been hoping for since I was eight years old! So, my pick for an anime that I wish were real is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 28: Favorite quote from an anime character

I’m really riding the highs and the lows with this challenge… Some choices for this challenge were ridiculously hard, while others were a walk in the park! This choice was one of the latter, I knew what I would write about for this post since Day 11. I just didn’t know how I wanted to write about it…So, for today’s post I decided to mimic an earlier set of posts I did for the 3-Day Quote Challenge.

Again, no intro/teaser for today’s post, I’m just gonna dive right in… So my pick for my favorite quote from an anime character is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 27: Most badass scene from an anime character

So if I thought some of the other prompts were vague, this one takes the cake! What the heck do they mean by badass? Is it the coolest fight? ‘Cus I already answered that question… Is it the most epic moment? ‘Cus I answered that too… I’m starting to realize that there is a lot of overlap between the Challenge prompts and my answers.

I had a hard time coming up with my pick for this post, so again I took this in a completely different direction than this prompt intended… So my pick for the most badass scene from an anime character is…

30 Day Anime Challenge-Day 26: Best Anime Fight

It’s Day 26 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, we are so close to the end that I can almost taste it! So today I’m supposed to talk about my favorite anime fight… Well, I’ve seen a lot of anime fights over the years so picking one as the best is not an easy choice.

So the idea for this post’s choice came from fellow blogger, Katrina Sade’s Day 23 Anime Challenge post! After reading her Roy Mustang post, I knew exactly which fight scene I was going to write about for this post… My pick for the best anime fight scene is…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 25: Saddest Anime Death

It’s not uncommon for people to grow attached to anime characters. In most cases we spend a lot of time watching these guys on screen, so it makes sense that we’d grow attached to them. So when an anime character dies, it’s only natural that you feel sad about it….

If I’m being completely honest with you guys, there are actually two anime deaths that I consider to be the saddest anime deaths ever. So, instead of going through the trouble of picking one over the other, I’m just going to share both of them! My picks for saddest anime deaths are…

30 Day Anime Challenge- Day 24: The moment that shocked me the most in an anime

Anime is known for having some pretty shocking moments, some good and some… not so good. Love ’em or hate ’em, these scenes are sure to make you go, ‘WTF’!

So this scene had me jumping up and down when it happened… This one moment came so completely out of left field that I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing! My pick for the moment that shocked me the most in an anime is…

30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 23-Favorite attack someone used in an anime

I feel like my answers for these posts are getting sillier and sillier the longer this challenge goes on. So if you are expecting a serious answer Day 23’s prompt: My favorite anime attack… you’ve come to the wrong place. In fact this is probably one of the silliest attacks used in an anime, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t think long and hard about my answer…

You know what I’m not going to do an introduction for my choice this time, in fact I’m going to just get right to it… My pick for my favorite attack someone used in an anime is…
