Summer Days with Coo – Anime Review

Do you love Studio Ghibli films? Summer Days with Coo is not a Ghibli film, but it reminded me a lot of one. It's a great family-friendly feature length anime that kids and adults can enjoy together. It has a lot of cute characters and a heartwarming story. It's pretty obscure with only 2,300ish "watched" on myanimelist and 600 watched on anime planet. Hopefully if you haven't heard of it yet, this review will inspire you to check it out for yourself. Title: Summer Days With Coo Genre: Family / Fantasy Adventure Release Date: 2007 (Japan) as far as I know as of the time of this review, it has still not been licensed in North America Studio: Shin-Ei Animation Where to Watch: If you know Japanese you can buy the DVD from Amazon here. Otherwise, you will have to find a torre

Tsukihime Visual Novel Review and Details about the Remake

Tsukihime was my very first visual novel, and still one of my favorites. While looking up images to use in this post, I also came across news that there's a remake in the works. This is old news I guess as it was first announced clear back in 2012. However, a post from Siliconera indicates that yes, it's still in development as of July 2015, so that's a good sign. You can see more updates about this remake over on Siliconera here. I'm not going to cover those details here, because this review is actually for the original Tsukihime visual novel from 2001. Also, I've never watched the anime, I've been told by many people that the Tsukihime anime sucked. Please don't ignore this visual novel, even if you really hated the anime. This is a must play for any visual novel fan. PS: You can g

Ever17 The Out of Infinity Visual Novel PC Game Review

Ever17 is probably my all time favorite visual novel. It was one of the first that I had played, and the story is so good. It's not your typical "dating" or "romance" novel. It's a very thrilling and suspenseful tale about a group of young people trapped in an underwater theme park. They are running out of oxygen, and worse yet, the computer systems are failing which is causing the pressure inside the ship to build, causing leaks. They're also running out of fresh food and water. Strange things also begin happening aboard the ship. Some characters resign themselves to their doomed fates, while others will do whatever it takes to survive. I've referenced this game in many of my other reviews, most notably, my review of Stein's Gate (which you can check out here.) The reason for that is bec

Developed by Gamedreamers MY (maybe stands for Malaysia? I'm not sure, but the game was released in English by a chinese publisher named xiong xiang (at least on the IOS app store) The game closed in November 2016 It is amazingly similar to Love Nikki Dress Up Queen (because of the quests, overworld maps, story, characters, gacha, and online competitions with other players, etc) Here is a post about the English servers shut down notice: https://www

New Theme – Test Run – Feedback Request

I wanna know what you guys think about this theme. Is it cute? Or is it too distracting? I've always been a fan of VERY minimalistic designs, but I thought since I run a "kawaii blog" maybe I should try out the "cutesy" look. I dunno if you've ever visited my site before or not - so here are some screenshots of our most recent theme before the switch. As you can see it was all free roaming white spaces, without a background, or without being "boxed in". Which do you prefer? the old theme in the screen shots below? Or the new "cute" theme? If the background image here was grey scale and/or transparent, would that make it less distracting for you? :) Let me know your thoughts. EDIT: I noticed that in Mobile (Iphone) that the background image does not display in portrait mode - and in la...

MappyLand – 8bit Nintendo – Retro Game Review – 1986

MappyLand was one of my favorite games as a little kid. And I must've been super little - since I would have only been 5 years old at the release of this game. It plays a lot like Mario Bros. in that you run, jump, and climb your way through the levels. You play as a cute mouse collecting items in each level to give to his girlfriend while avoiding and distracting all of the cats. - Although simple, it is a cute concept, which is maybe why it appealed to me so much when I was little. Title: MappyLand Genre: Platformer / Mascot Game Release Date: 1986 Publisher: Taxan Developer: Namco Platform: 8Bit NES (Also now available on the Wii U E-store) Where to Buy: You can still find plenty of copies on Amazon, where Mappyland sales for $6-12 bucks depending on the condition of the game, c

Ript Apparel – $11 Tshirts For Geeks and Gamers – New Designs Every Day

I just discovered a great new website for Geeky Tees. The prices start at just $11 - although they do charge more for some designs, or for plus sized clothing. They offer both men and womens, and even youth clothing. They also have hoodies and lots of other goodies. Here are a few of my favorite designs. You can click on any of the pictures to go to the Ript Apparel website where you can see how the shirts look on an actual live model. They have a really cool Exclusive Deadpool X The Walking Dead T-shirt. Deadpool is so hot right now. The one thing I noticed is that their selection of sizes could use some improvement. If you're a man - they've got you covered with sizes going all the way to 5XL. However, if you're a woman, the sizes only go to 2XL. I've seen other sites that go to Wome...

Ability to Choose Theme – Postponed

We are adding the ability to allow you to choose different themes for viewing the blog via the main site www.GeekySweetie.com. In preparation for this we will be activating some themes (in order to place widgets or modify some lines of code). If things are not looking or working as you may expect, this could be the reason. This post will be updated once the new features (and themes) are in place. Right after deciding to do this, they released Wordpress 4.5 literally seconds after this post went live - which makes some themes look funky. This may be a process spanning a few days. Thank you for your patience. We've decided to postpone this feature indefinitely for a few different reasons: 1.) Maintaining multiple themes will put more stress on the servers, as well as take more manpower/t

Erased – Anime Review

Erased is pretty much THE anime of 2016. I'm sure you have probably at least heard of it, if not watched it yourself even. I really enjoyed this anime despite it being so predictable that I knew who the killer was by the 2nd or 3rd episode. -- Don't worry I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen it yet (or haven't figured it out themselves). Erased has awesome music and a neat time-travel theme. Are you sad that Erased is over? I highly recommend that you check out Re:Zero - a currently running anime with a very similar time travel concept. Title: Erased (aka Boku Dake ga Inai Machi - The Town Without Only Me) Genre: Seinen, Murder, Mystery, Scifi Studio: A-1 Pictures Length: 12 Episodes Release Date: 2016 Where to Watch: Crunchyroll Geeky: 5/5 Sweetie: 3/5 Overall: 36

Ecco The Dolphin – Retro Game Review

Something a lil bit different today. RPGs and Mobile games are all well and good - but sometimes you just want something different right? Sometimes you just want to be a dolphin and fly through the air doing barrel rolls and back flips while solving puzzles and eating fish. For that, I recommend Ecco the Dolphin. Ecco made his first appearance on Sega Genesis. The title was a huge success and spawned many sequels and spin offs including Ecco JR, Ecco 2 - The Tides of Time, and Echo Defender of the Future. There was also another Dreamcast version in the works which never saw the light of day before Dreamcast's untimely demise. There are also handheld versions, Sega CD versions, Playstation 2 versions, and a PC and Xbox port of the original game. Title: Ecco The Dolphin Genre: Pl

Miitomo Review: Nintendo’s New App Will Devour Your Soul — And All of Your Free Time!

As you should know by now - I'm no stranger to these types of apps having already reviewed countless others such as Dream Girlfriend, CocoPPAPlay, Pokecolo (Formerly Pokemini), Animal Boyfriend, and also an avid fan and long time player of LinePlay. The concept, which is essentially dressup an avatar and decorate a room,  is nothing new. But Somehow, Nintendo's new Miitomo app manages to stand out in a very crowded marketplace. I stayed up til 2am saturday night playing this game. And stayed up until midnight lastnight playing (after also playing it 10+ hours throughout both days) - only because I knew I had to be up for work today. (otherwise I would've stayed up later - I cannot put this app down!) I think what makes Miitomo so successful is the social aspect of the app. It allows you t

Pittsburgh Guest Blogger Event

Hi everyone! Happy April Fool's Day. Awhile back I was contacted by Alexander who told me about a "Blogathon" event in which local bloggers from the Pittsburgh area exchange guest posts and invited to participate. Today's the day that these posts go live! I did a post about where to find the best arcades in Pittsburgh which you can check out over on http://seanramblings.blogspot.com/ And I'm hosting a post (seen below) from Blogger Josh Croyle of "Josh's World" whose site is at http://joshcroyle.com/. Here's what Josh had to say about what comics he'd recommend to my readers.   When asked to write a post for Geeky Sweetie, my initial thought was a review for a comic that girls might like. I noticed that there are no comic reviews on the site and figured mine would be a good additi
