This post has been a long time coming, and while I have been relatively silent on the whole thing, this is something that needed to be said. Now, there are two reasons I have been quiet about this and they are as follows: One, I know some of the purists out there will find my stance a bit “controversial” (mind you I legit made air quotes when I said that) and I didn’t want to deal with the backlash from that when I was just getting my start… believe it or not I am sensitive about that sort of thing. Two, I was a pirate myself and I had no desire to draw attention to myself by making any claims one way or the other, again in order to avoid backlash…
Before you guys start sharpening your axes and grabbing your pitchforks, I’ll have you know I am reformed and believe me, I have the bank statements to prove it! So, I more or less have a pretty strong opinion about people pirating games, however, you should note that I am not a purist in any sense of the word, so my stance is double sided. I am prepared for a bit of backlash with this one and honestly, you’d be pretty hard pressed to change my opinion on this topic since I have literally been on both sides of the debate. But, I do encourage you all to share your thoughts on this topic in the comments section, however, keep the personal attacks to yourself. I am not against telling someone to *clears throat* “Go fuck themselves”, and that’s literally all the warning I plan on giving, because I do not tolerate personal attacks.
*Disclaimer: This post contains my thoughts and my opinions about piracy and such I tend to use rather colorful language when discussing things I am passionate about, be warned that there will be a bit of swearing involved in this post. I could have censored this post, but I didn’t!

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!!
Okay, first I want to apologize for being late with this post! I am currently out of town for the holiday weekend and there is no wifi where I’m at… so I am literally reliving my childhood. It also seems like every time there is a big announcement in the otome community, I’m away on vacation or something…
Mind you all, I’m still on vacation…I am literally writing this from my Galaxy S7. So forgive me for a few errors/weirdness, as it is hard to post from this thing and I avoid it when I can!
Edit: The Kickstarter for this game failed to achieve the necessary funds by the deadline. As of right now there has been no additional news about future plans for localization of this title!
So I know this has been said several times before, but I feel that this type of repitition is good, it shows solidarity within the Otome/Otoge community (and I love it!)
Gloczus, the same folks who helped localize Hakuoki and Amnesia, are back again this time with the title Beastmaster and Prince ~Flower and Snow~! Originally released back in 2010, the game has proved immensely popular spawning two sequels…
The story looks good, and since my Japanese language skills are laughable at best, it warms my heart that companies are listening to our otome fangirl pleas, and seriously considering localizing Japanese games for a global market.
More games = more new fans, which in turn increases the demand for these types of games, which then means more games will be localized!
So PLEASE check out the Kickstarter, HERE, and lend your support. There are only 18 more days left for them to reach their goal of $150,000 (currently $49,713), every little bit helps! I’m planning on donating at the $25 level…I know it’s not much (I kinda quit my job right before Christmas) but I really do want to help out!
If you can’t help out monetarily, SHARE this post or the Kickstarter on social media and spread the word!
