It’s probably a good time to start one of those things where I talk a little about this blog and what I’ve planned for the next month.
Before I do that, I want to thank all the awesome people out there who decided to use my walkthroughs/guides or share the links on other sites! My blog recently reached a new daily view record, beating the record from November of last year. I’m aware that my blog only gained a popularity boost because of my guides, with far less views on my other posts but it’s okay because I’m still somewhere at the starting point regarding English reviews and stuff. Not much has happened since last year and I even went on hiatus for a while.
I also want to say thanks to the wonderful girls and guys who are following my blog and/or liking my posts. Of course, I’m also happy about most comments (except the spam ones haha), be it a simple thank you, a questions about a guide or someone pointing out a mistake I’ve made. I know that my English isn’t the best and there are probably tons of mistakes in the texts I write but I won’t give up and hope that filling this blog with new content will help me with improving my English AND Japanese skills.
Enough about that. Let’s start with the Monthly Update!
I’m rather bad at blog design and I don’t have many possibilities and freedom with a Free WordPress plan anyway. I’d like to try out more stuff but without the money to upgrade the plan, it’s a little difficult to do that atm. That also means you still have to deal with the WordPress ads randomly appearing under some blog posts, sorry…
The next thing I’m planning, is to add some more pages about my interests and what I like. I’m not sure when I’ll start with this but you can expect a list of fave chars, what otomege and VN I’ve played so far and some recommendations!
At lot has happened this month and I ended up writing FOUR walkthroughs (Root Letter, Memory’s Dogma Code: 01, Enigma: and Steins;Gate 0), two more than planned but seems like it was the right decision to write one for Enigma: because I heard people asking for one shortly after release (and it’s getting more attention than expected). At this point I can’t say anything about future walkthroughs, tho. I don’t think I’ll play Himawari and there doesn’t seem to be anything interesting coming out in December otherwise.
Since I’ve gotten a message about it: I’m able to play some games (weeks) before release because I’m reviewing JRPG/VN/otomege for a big German gaming site called JPGames.de. That’s also the reason I can finish and put up guides before or at release. It doesn’t always work out and can be rather stressful at times if you only get a review code right before release but still want to be on time. It’s still fun and helps me with improving my writing skills. Like I’ve mentioned before on Twitter, I want to translate some of my reviews into English and put them on my blog. I can’t say, when that will happen but I’ll probably start with Enigma: or Steins;Gate 0 because I want to recommend them to more people.
You probably have already seen my Lost Friends ‘review’ which’s an attempt at giving Uzumeya’s works some attention. I want to keep writing about doujin-VN/otomege/ADV from Japan and small free games created by Japanese people, introducing the story, characters and adding some of my thoughts. I’m currently working on a blog post about the Alice in Dreamworld demo and Musai no Nie‘s on my list, as well. I hope you are interested in reading about something like this!
For those waiting for the new Tsugino chapter: I hope to get the next one up in December. Hideaki’s giving me a headache to be honest and I have trouble with understanding some of the things he’s saying. Half of the chapter’s already done, tho!
I’d like to write something like an ‘End of the Year’ post with my fave and most disappointing games/anime of 2016 and some other more or less interesting things.
From now on the Today’s Loot post goes online every two months (instead of every month). Expect the next one at the end of this month or at the beginning of December!
The next artbook I want to write about’s the Zettai Meikyuu Grimm Official Visual Fanbook. I already took pics of some pages so the only thing left’s to write the post itself.
I don’t have any specific ideas yet but I want to do something special for Christmas. Maybe writing a short story or translating something Christmas themed. There’s a certain Light Novel that would fit and I also still want to play that one VN. Nah, not telling you any titles because I want it to be a secret. Well, I’ll see what I can do!
btw if you are an active reader of my blog or are using my walkthroughs and plan to order something on CD Japan, please consider using one of my affiliate links (just click on one of the game box arts on the side bar and use that link to order what you want). There isn’t any downside to it for you, it won’t costs you anything extra but it would earn me some extra points. I’m currently saving my points to purchase either the Possession Magenta Official Fanbook or the Mind Zero Official Visual Book. Of course, I’ll take pics and write about the book once I got enough points and can order one. I’d really appreciate your support!
