Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Jun. 11th to Jun. 17th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Week one of being a working adult has left me exhausted, but I’m enjoying the work so far and I’m getting the hang of things…finally.  Though I’m still not sold on this 6AM wake up time every day, I’ve been conking out the minute I get home everyday…

But, plus side is that I get weekends off, so there must be something to this adulting thing after all. Saw that movie, 47 Meters Down, and it was hilarious, one of those films that are so bad, they’re actually kind of good… maybe if you squint. Oh, and I read one of the most beautiful fanfics the other day, it was just so perfect!!

So, in order to spread our message of self acceptance and tolerance, we’ve decided to hold Monthly Blog Tours! During Blog Tours, we each write individual theme posts on our blogs that promote our group’s values, with a bit of an otaku twist. May’s Blog Tour topic is Strength!

*Disclaimer: This post and the film, Colorful deal with some heavy themes that some people may be uncomfortable with, namely suicide and death. While I understand that different cultures and people deal with mental health in different ways, it’s important to know that this is an important topic and I have done my best to handle it with the utmost care. Remember that if you or anyone you know is experiencing feelings of loneliness, saddness, hopelessness or considering suicide, you are not alone!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- May 14th to May 20th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Some of you may have noticed that I’ve stopped writing all of my weekly post series (save this one). Don’t worry, they aren’t cancelled, just on hold until June like everything else. I’m currently working on bringing everything up to snuff and for that I need a bit of time and with all the real life stuff I have going on right now, I need to prep a bit.

I will still upload game reviews during this time, but, that will be about it. If everything goes as planned, I should have everything back and running starting June 1st. In the meantime, I am always open to chatting with more bloggers and writers, so definitely hit me up and say hi, a list of where to find me online is, HERE! Also, if you want to exchange Blogroll links, just let me know and I’d be more than happy to add you, however, you kind of sorta have to write about Japanese culture and media (anime, manga, otome games, etc), but I will make an exception for K-dramas a K-pop stuff!

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- May. 7th to May 13th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but being an adult sucks… I can’t imagine why I ever wanted to hurry up and grow up, because I had it easy as a kid….

grow up

*claps hands* I’m still dealing with a lot of real life…stuff, so aside from a few otome game updates, this blog has been kind of dead. I want to say that next week won’t be the same, but… I’m not one to make promises I know I can’t keep, so I’ll try to post a bit, but I’ll plan to be back full steam ahead starting in June.

Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Apr. 23rd to Apr. 29th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Sorry I’m a bit late with this week’s recap, the OWLS Monthly Livestream was last night and when Kat, Lita, and I get together we always end up talking for hours (four hours this time, a new record). So, I opted to sleep in, on top of that Period Cube was released a few days ago and I have been swooning over a certain adorkable megane… *ahem* I’ve been otherwise engaged LOL

This has been a good year for otome games and I expect that there will be more releases in the coming weeks and months, so be warned I may go ghost during major game releases. I’m also working on a fun theme for May, so be on the look out throughout the month!
