Super Special Awesome Giveaway!!

Hey Hey Heroes and Travelers this is a special welcome back giveaway. Real life has been kicking my butt lately so I haven’t been able to do as much blogging as I would have liked these past few months…. However, I was finally able to get everything to a stable place and as thanks for your constant love and support, I am holding a special giveaway!!

celebrate

This is my first time doing something like this and depending on how this turns out I might be inclined to do another giveaway in the future…


The Prize

Some of you know this already, but I crochet and while I usually stick to afghans, hats, and scarves, but recently I’ve gotten pretty good at amigurumi crafts. So for one lucky follower, I will be giving away a free amigurumi doll!

These are just examples, but the winner can request one of these if they so choose. 

I am leaving the design of the doll up to the winner. They can choose to have a doll made in their likeness or choose a character, but keep in mind that if you ask for something I can’t do, I will let you know and you’ll have to come up with something else.

Each doll is handmade by me and they are roughly 6 inches. I use acrylic yarn for the bodies and the filling is 100% polyester craft filling.

I will share pictures of the finished doll with the winner prior to shipping to ensure that the doll is exactly what they want, but once I send it off I will not accept returns.


The Rules and How to Enter

Okay, so the rules… In order to participate in this giveaway, you must be a follower/subscriber of Nice job Breaking It Hero. This is mandatory, no exceptions! This is my way of giving back to you guys for being such awesome and supportive friends and acquaintances over the years!

I am using Rafflecopter (big thanks to Kat for helping me figure out how to use it) to select the winner, but you must leave a valid email address so I can contact you! Participants can enter once per day until the end of the giveaway, but, as an added bonus, I will give one additional entry to participants that follow me on Twitter.

Enter Below

Click to Enter

The winner selection will be at random, but the more you enter the more chances you have to win, so good luck! XD


Notifying Winners

I will announce the winner on Twitter and here on Nice Job Breaking It Hero, but I will also be contacting winners directly using the email address you used to enter the giveaway. I’ll ask for details about the doll you want and shipping info so I can send the doll directly to you (I will be covering the shipping costs).

The winner will have 48 hours to contact me after the initial email notification. If I don’t hear back from you within that time limit I will choose someone else.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to comment on this post, fill out my blog’s contact form, or email me at pokemonninja17@gmail.com.


How long is the Giveaway?

The giveaway will run from June 5th @ 12 AM EST until June 10th @ 12 AM EST. All entries must be in before the cutoff to be eligible!

Again thank you guys for being so awesome and I wish you all the luck on this giveaway! If you aren’t selected as a winner, don’t worry there will be other opportunities to get a doll sooner than you think… I have some things in the works…

Let’s Show Our Support for False Elegy!

Edit (6/4): The Kickstarter for this game failed to achieve the necessary funds by the deadline. Production of the game is on hold until the developers feel that there is a viable market for it. 

Hey, hey guys I’m back with yet another Kickstarter campaign! This time around, I’m spotlighting Team geNe6’s upcoming dark fantasy visual novel, False Elegy. I usually focus on otome games and GxB titles, but this game really stood out from the rest. False Elegy will appeal to a rather diverse audience drawing inspiration from both Western and Japanese media.

The game will be especially appealing to fans of the Fate/Stay series and Tokyo Ghoul which were influential to the developers during production.

[Announcement] I am Currently in KuroTsuki Hell!

So, if you haven’t noticed, there really hasn’t been that much action this week on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero and there are two reasons for that:

  1. Period Cube was released last week and I am working my way through the game.
  2. I thought it was a good idea to read fanfics on AO3…

2017-03-08 (5).png

I seriously considered keeping up with my usual blogging schedule, but the pull of my fave Haikyuu ship was a bit too strong, so I wound up not writing anything. But, don’t despair, I’ll kick myself into gear starting on Sunday… I just needed a bit of a break.

I’m working on something special for the month of May and I’ll announce it during this week’s Last Week Today post. But, if you guys need me, you can just shoot me a message on any of my social media accounts, I’m usually pretty quick to respond.

So, yeah, I don’t plan on posting anything until Sunday… everything I had planned for this week is now scheduled for next week. I will now retreat back to the warm embrace of Haikyuu fanfics…

[News] Voltage Inc Will Shut Down AmeMix Apps in June!

lovestruck.png

It’s been a few weeks since Voltage launched their new portal app Lovestruck, the hub of their English language Amemix titles. And, despite the initial fan backlash, it seems like Lovestruck is here to stay. Voltage is also planning on moving forward with their plan to phase out the individual Amemix Apps (Astoria Fates Kiss, Gangsters in Love, and Castaway: Love’s Adventure) in favor of the new app as stated in a special announcement from the developers on April 17th.

Thankfully, Voltage was kind enough to give us a heads up this time around so that players could properly adjust to the transition. You can read the official announcement from Voltage from the Official Lovestruck Tumblr account or any of Voltage Inc’s social media portals, however I will still outline the changes below:

[Guest Blogger] Why Are We Attracted to Anime Bishounen & Bishoujo?

Hello Heroes and Travelers, today we have a special guest post from the lovely, Arria Cross from over at Fujinsei!! Arria approached me about guest blogging here a little while ago and I was more than happy to oblige! Also be on the look out for my guest post on her site soon!! So join me in welcoming her to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!! So without further ado, I’m gonna turn things over to Arria!!

Hello, folks! My name is Arria Cross, blogger of Fujinsei, an entertainment blog featuring anime, manga, Japanese & otaku culture. Big thanks to my friend Naja for allowing me to guest post here in Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. Yay!

“Husbando” and “waifu” are now very common terms within the fandom to refer to fictional characters in anime, manga, or games that you would like to be your husband or wife. Many fans, however, use these terms interchangeably with anime crush.

Non-fans may view us as weird, obsessive freaks. Viral news about a Japanese gamer marrying (not legally) a game character back in 2009 and a Japanese company offering marriage certificates with 2D anime brides just strengthen misconceptions about us. Before anything else, I would like to clarify that these examples are extreme and do not apply to all fans. Most of us may call our 2D crushes “husbando” or “waifu”, but this does not necessarily mean that we’ll go as far as actually “marry” them in real life. In our fantasies, maybe.
