Miniature Garden

I’m sorry for disappearing all of a sudden even so I still had some blog posts planned and all for December. Since I was more busy than expected with RL (and playing games) in January/February/March I didn’t have any motivation for writing blog posts and didn’t even use my PC at all (not even for reading Visual Novels) ahaha…

I’ll be back from hiatus soon starting with an ending guide for the Visual Novel Miniature Garden (coming out March 30 on Steam!) and an overall update to my blog. I already replied to most of the comments I got while I was away.

Anyway, just wanted to say that I’m still alive!

lovely blog award

Memes are about everywhere, aren’t they? Seriously, I even had to look up what the One Lovely Blog Award‘s about because I rarely fill out any memes. Turns out it’s just posting some facts about you. Sounds easy enough but I hate to reveal personal stuff online so I’ll stick to my interests and some random facts I’ve no problem sharing.
I’ve been nominated by LeafyDream. Thank you!

Rules:

  1. You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. You must list the rules and display the award.
  3. You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  4. You must nominate 15 other bloggers.

7 Facts About me:

1. I tend to like white-haired characters (with red eyes) and I can also get easily obsessed with reverse traps. My love for Kino and Naoto Shirogane will never die down.


2. I used to be into shounen-ai which was introduced to me by my best friend. It completely changed someday and I started to feel disgust towards it. Surprisingly it doesn’t apply to Sorey x Mikleo (Tales of Zestiria) because it somehow feels natural to me to see them together.

Sometimes hints or certain characters in anime/games are getting on my nerves, it’s even worse with shoujo-ai. Characters who are the cause for it and do it in a super annoying way (every time they see the character they like) end up getting all my hate. It’s the reason I was unable to continue watching To Aru Kakagu no Railgun and even though she has her good times I’m glad Seiko isn’t in all the chapters in Corpse Party. I don’t even feel sorry for her that Naomi’s a crush on Satoshi and only sees her as a close friend.


3. I mainly like to ship hetero pairings which are hinted at, considered canon or feel like they belong together. For example Asbel and Cheria from Tales of Graces or Hinata and Nanami from Danganronpa 2. In Visual Novels with character routes and Otome Games I either end up without a pairing or only stick to the pairing I think’s the most fitting imo. In Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly I’m basically unable to accept any other pairing because of a thing that’s revealed in the game. I won’t say which pairing but you’ll see for yourself if you play the game.


4. I greatly dislike the taste and smell of meat. I’m a picky eater in general which makes it hard to decide what to order in a restaurant. Lately I can’t even stomach sweets like chocolate I used to like to eat a lot until some months ago.


5. I refused to play certain genres for a long time and only slowly started to open up to them. I don’t care anymore if a game’s a SRPG or first person dungeon crawler as long as the characters are likeable and interesting. Just don’t give me a party with completely random characters, without any personality and lines to speak. That would kill my motivation really fast. In the last 4-5 years I got into eroge and Otome Games. Both are genres I never thought I’d ever touch because of elements I dislike (mainly hentai scenes and shoujo stuff). There are only a few games I really enjoyed so far but more and more titles begin to look interesting/appealing to me.


6. Complain about anime with harem, RomCom or fanservice elements as much as you want. It doesn’t change the fact that I find many of them (very) entertaining to watch. I even got to hear that I have ‘shit taste’ for liking shows like that and it’s pissing me off.

There are things I don’t care about as long as I get something enjoyable, even if that something comes without any originality and with character stereotypes you see over and over again. It’s true that there are enough light novels using the same or similar setting or basically copy content but as long as the adaptions turn out to be entertaining it works for me. I don’t give anime like Date A Live or Trinity Seven high scores without a reason. It means I truly liked them.

A current example’s probably Musaigen no Phantom World. I see people being disappointed or complaining about how stupid the show is but I personally liked the first two episodes a lot and I’m glad KyoAni’s working on it. The style and quality of the series look very nice.


7. I have a huge backlog of games and it’s only getting worse. Even with all the free time I have at the moment I don’t get anywhere. I often tell myself to only focus on the main story and ignore the rest so I can play through more games but that rarely works. I always want to see and explore everything in the first playthrough and I play games at my own (slow) pace. Most of the time I end up being surprised how quickly other people can finish them.

That’s all for now. If somebody nominates me again I might tell you about how much of a weirdo I really am…or better not haha

Finally starting this thing

Since I don’t want to irritate my possible readers any longer I decided to start an English blog after all. My other blog is Unlucky Hero no Bouken which started out as a German blog but has some English posts mixed in atm.  You can expect to see some copied content from the other blog soon.

Other than that I’ll randomly post about games and stuff I’m interested in. I also plan to use this blog for my guides.
