Melanin Monday: I’m Black, I Like Anime, and Other Nerdy Things… So What [Part I]

Hey, hey all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers out there it’s Monday, and that means another Melanin Monday post!! For those of you just joining us, Melanin Monday is a  bi-weekly post series that I started for Black History Month, where I talk about Black and Brown skinned characters in anime, manga, video games, etc., but you guys loved it so much I decided to continue it! The series has since expanded to cover discussions and my own personal stories about being a Black nerd, because being Black and being an otaku/nerd is all a part of what makes me, well, me. 

I thought about this week’s topic for awhile, but unlike the previous weeks, I just couldn’t think of any snappy topics or lists, so I decided to go with something I knew I could easily write about… me! I know, I know, seems pretty shallow, but hear me out, I actually came up with the idea for this post after reading all of your comments on my previous Melanin Monday posts. (Yes, I read them, which is why it takes me so long to reply.) While I appreciate all comments and criticism, I was most surprised by how many Black nerds and otaku shared their stories with me about being Black in the otaku community and I’m not gonna lie, reading your comments really made my day, because you guys get it, you all get my struggle! I wish I could give you all a hug and thank you personally, because outside of my tenure at Howard and the internet, it’s not often that I meet fellow Black folks that openly admit to watching anime…

I was going to make this a one off post, but the longer I wrote the more I realized I had more than one story to share, so this will be a series within the Melanin Monday series… Series-ception! In this week’s Melanin Monday post I wanted to write about my early experiences being a black otaku, of course this isn’t the whole story, I’ll save those bits for future posts. I just wanted to share my stories the way so many of you have shared your stories with me, so this post is dedicated to all my fellow Black nerds and otaku!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr. 2nd- Apr. 8th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I apologize for being so late with this post, but a friend invited me to his Spring Choir concert yesterday and I’ve been either applying to jobs or playing Cinderella Phenomenon for the past week…. so yeah.

playing video games
Pretty accurate gif this week…

Also, there will be no Last Week Today Post next week… Let me repeat that for those of you playing with your phones in the back, THERE WILL BE NO ‘LAST WEEK TODAY’ POST NEXT WEEK… I just need a week off, these posts take me hours to write since there are so many different parts to it and I usually wind up spreading it out over the entire weekend… But, not this time, I’m going to sleep in on Saturday for once!

GrimmGirl Is BACK With Her Top Three Moments of Season 3 of Haikyu

Hello Heroes and Travellers, today we have a special guest post from the lovely, Katrina Sade from over at GrimmGirl.com!! The Haikyuu Fangirl Duo is back with part two of our Haikyu Collaboration post series, so join me in welcoming GrimmGirl to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!! So without further ado, I’m gonna turn things over to Kat!!


Muahahaha!!

I’m back! Pokeninja90 and I have decided to torture ourselves further by bringing you our Top Three Moments from Season Three of Haikyuu. As always this was a challenge! It has become a bit of a tradition for us to guest on each other’s blogs for this challenge. So below you can check out my previous work here on Nice Job Breaking It Hero. You can also see Pokeninja90’s collaboration work with me on GrimmGirl!

I hope you all enjoyed the stroll down memory lane and are ready for some serious Haikyu talk. I have to admit (I know I say this every season) but this was so hard to write! You would think with only 10 episodes this would be easier but no. It seemed like I was having a favorite moment every moment! I swear by the end of the first episode I had about 12 favorite moments.

I managed to narrow everything down to three and I’m pretty pleased with them. Each of these moments basically encompasses everything I loved about this season.

I Slept With an Executive from Work?!: Irresistible Mistakes- Toshiaki Kijima Main Story

After a night of heavy drinking, the MC discovers that she slept with the Accounts Planning Executive, Toshiaki Kijima. Unable to reconcile the Demon Executive with the sweet, loving man she shared a night of passion with, the MC initially dismisses the notion that Toshiaki was the one she’d slept with. But, when he sends her a text asking to meet up at the same bar, she realizes the idea might not be as far-fetched as she originally thought! Is there really more to this cool businessman than meets the eye? Or was that night just a beautiful delusion?

This was the route I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. This route was very different from Tachibana’s but in a good way. I can’t see how any of the other routes in the game are going to top this one, it was just so… PERFECT! If you want a general overview of Irresistible Mistakes, click HERE, it’s covers the basic premise of the game and will include links to the other character reviews I will write for the game. 

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Voltage Inc. Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area.

Bacchikoi Expansion Pack- BL Game Review

Edit: In October of 2016 Black Monkey Pro disbanded, so Bacchikoi and all of their other content is no longer available for purchase, but feel free to still give this review a read! 

So, I know some of you are wondering how in the world am I going to review an expansion pack, since it’s not really a game. Well, to that I say, *ahem* the Bacchikoi Expansion Pack is really just an overpriced fandisk, so I had no problem eking out a review and for what I paid for it, you better believe I’m writing a review! This game cost about as much as some real games…

I must be a glutton for punishment, because here I am talking about yet another Black Monkey Pro title, at least this time, it’s an expansion pack and not a full game… thank God! I don’t think I could actually put up with another BMP game, I just can’t… If you don’t remember how I felt about the previous Black Monkey Pro games I highly suggest reading my reviews for Sleepover and Bacchikoi and relive all the magic and wonder that is Black Monkey Pro, but forewarning those are NSFW reviews!

*Disclaimer: I don’t own the images used in this review, all CGs and screenshots belong to Black Monkey. Since this game is NSFW there will be some NSFW images after this point. I tried my best to hide some of the naughty bits, but… *shrugs* you’ve been warned!

mangagamer 1

This past weekend MangaGamer held a panel at Anime Boston where they made a few exciting game announcements, two of which I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t really interested in, since I’m not really into the whole moe girl thing, but there was one game that really made my day!! MangaGamer is releasing another Boys Love title!!

But there’s nothing wrong with more games, so all of these announcements are a welcome treat!! Of course I’m sure these won’t be the only announcements we’ll be getting from MangaGamer this year, since they always reveal upcoming titles at each of the conventions they attend, so be on the look out for those by following them on twitter or by checking out their Announcement site!

So now that that’s out of the way, here are their Anime Boston game announcements!!
