    Interviews With Monster Girls Review

    Title: Interviews With Monster Girls

    Release Date: January 2017

    Production: A-1 Pictures

    Based on: Demi-Chan wa Kataritai Manga by Petos

    Genre: Slice of Life, Romance, Comedy

    Geeky: 2/5 This anime has high production values in terms of artwork, music, and voice acting, however; it lacks any real substantial plot or depth beyond the unique and cute characters.

    Sweetie: 4/5 This is a very cute anime with a ton of charm. I deducted 1 point for lack of a strong central story and lack of character growth or development. Still if cute is what you’re looking for, be sure to check this series out.

    Makura no Danshi – Pillow Boys – Anime Review

    OK…. I just watched one of the weirdest anime of my life… Well two of the weirdest anime of my life…. And I didn’t really hate it?..

    The first anime I came across is a relatively new anime called OneRoom. In OneRoom, everything is supposed to be in first person… except… only… it’s not??? Because why then can I keep seeing almost up the backs of the girls’ skirts?! Do I have hidden cameras in my apartment? Do I have super powers? Am I having an out of body experience? The answer is NO, they just wanted to cram as much fan service as humanly possible into each 4 minute episode…

    Frisky Lives Up to His Name
    Frisky Lives Up to His Name

    I received this game for free in exchange for writing an honest review. I played through Frisky’s route and received his Normal Ending.

    Title: Cat President

    Genre: Otome Visual Novel

    Platform: PC

    Developer: Oh a Rock! Studios

    Where to Buyhttp://store.steampowered.com/app/474980

    Geeky: 3/5 – On the fence with this score… Production values are fairly low and it shows, also not much “gameplay” as is the nature of visual novels. But it does earn a few points for geeky internet “meme-like” humor.

    Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka Anime Review

    Title: Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka?!! (So I’m a zombie?!!)

    Length: 22 Episodes

    Genre: Comedy, Parody, Action, Romance, Harem

    Overall: 28/35 80% Very Good Anime For Girls

    Story: 9/10 Kore Wa Zombie is a fun series that pokes fun at both itself and several other anime tropes. For example, the main character becomes a magical girl who fights with a giant chainsaw while wearing a pink uniform and hairstyle very similar to Card Captor Sakura. He finds himself in the middle of a harem with a house full of beautiful, but strange other worldly girls, including a Necromancer, Magical Girl, Ninja, and more. One episode even parodies and pokes fun at the idol culture in Japan.

    Aishiteruze Baby Anime Review

    This review, like the one published today for Peach Girl, also first appeared on my Anime-Planet.com profile. (and these are the only two reviews I’ve written over there (so far). Both these reviews are quite older, and don’t completely jive with the scoring system here, but both these anime are among my top 5 :).

    In my original anime-planet.com review, I reference the similarities between this anime (which is not very popular on anime-planet) and Usagi Drops, another similar anime about a young man who finds himself suddenly raising a little girl, which is immensely popular on anime-planet (at time of my original review, it was in the top 50 anime on anime-planet). I’ve removed the paragraph comparing the two anime for my reblog over here because, it wouldn’t make since to complain about their scoring system on anime-planet and people’s “poor choice” in anime haha. But what follows is the rest of the review after that initial paragraph. If you like Usagi Drops, please give Aishiteruze Baby a chance. It’s a lot better than Usagi Drops. Not that Usagi Drops is bad, but Aishiteruze is just a better anime :).

    Peach Girl Anime Review

    This review was originally published on anime-planet. My username over there is Xenokitten. (You can find me here: http://www.anime-planet.com/users/xenokitten) Why not come say Hi! ? 🙂 Anime-planet.com is an awesome website that provides user generated recommendations and reviews to help you find the next anime you want to watch. For example, if you liked Chobits, you can go to the Chobits page on anime-planet and see other shows you might like, with an explanation of why the series are similar to eachother. It’s really nifty. I use this site all the time. Also you can watch the latest episodes of your favorite or hard to find anime on their site as well. But perhaps the coolest thing about anime-planet is it lets you generate a “Life spent on anime” tracker for forum signatures, or websites, etc. And you can track not only games, but also anime. Here’s my tracker (which happens to be a pic of Momo from Peach Girl):

    Story: 10/10 Erika is a typical highschool girl, worried about her reputation with her friends in her class. So when her friends all start bragging about their boyfriends, Erika decides that she’s going to make up a fictional boyfriend to impress her friends. Without thinking, she randomly takes a cellphone picture of a cute boy that she passes by on the street. When she shows her friends, they are shocked and don’t believe her, because it is the “prince” of the school; the one guy that all of the girls want to date, the most popular and most unobtainable boy in the school. Not wanting to get caught in her own lie, Erika approaches the “prince” to ask him if he could pretend to go out with her for a short time. He tells her he will be her boyfriend if she will be his dog. He tells her he likes dogs that follow him around and obey his every command. He literally treats her as if she were a dog. He makes her bark, turn circles, fetch, and sit and stay on command. She agrees to be his dog because she so badly wants to keep up appearances with her friends. While pretending to be dating, the two gradually draw closer. Erika almost instantly develops feelings for the prince, however, he does not trust women due to his own relationship with his mother and sister. He is afraid of being hurt and afraid that everyone will leave him if he gets too close. He is never honest about his feelings, and tries to deny that he also has grown rather fond of Erika. He slowly begins to change though throughout the series; his once playboy ways a thing of the past, as he refuses visits from other girls, and becomes increasingly possessive and jealous around Erika. He also at times shows her kindness that he never shows to other girls.

  • Danganronpa 3 Trailer at Tokyo Gameshow 2015 Coming to PS4 and Vita

    TGS2015 is still underway in Japan, and new game announcements are still trickling in. One game that I’m really excited for is the upcoming Danganronpa 3 which is a series of games that plays a lot like the Phoenix Wright games.



    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

    You find yourself locked in a school and engaged in a “game” in which the only way you can ever leave the school is if you can successfully murder a classmate without getting caught. Of course, as the hero in the game, you instead are trying to focus on a way to escape without having to kill anyone. But your life may also be in danger if wrongly accused or if the killer goes free. After each murder, as soon as a victim is found, you’re allowed to investigate the crime scene and question your classmates for clues. Then there’s a trial in which you continue your questioning and present your evidence as to who you think is behind the murders.

    Katamari Damacy Review

    Title: Katamari Damacy

    Genre: Platform / Puzzle

    Platform: PS2, Xbox 360

    Publisher: Namco

    Release Date: September 21, 2004

    Language: English



    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

    Geeky Factor: 

    Sweetie Factor: 

    Overall: 53/70 76% C  “Good Game For Girls”

    Story: 2/10 The story in Katamari is really silly and crazy (as is much of the game itself). It follows a prince whose father has accidentally destroyed the universe and you find yourself in the role of said, young prince, ordered by your father, to go “roll up” the planets to put them back into the sky; meanwhile your actions are also impacting a human family back on earth whose father is an astronaut who’s unable to travel to the moon due to the king of the universe destroying the cosmos. The story is often told with still images, or silent clips and movies, and really plays a huge backseat compared to the gameplay. The fact is, story is not this game’s strong suit, but it doesn’t NEED to be, because the gameplay stands alone.
