An idea that has been percolating in my head since the beginning of the year finally begins to take shape. Or becomes a fresh cup of coffee? Well, whatever happens to percolating ideas! And here is the announcement.
Quick explanation: I decided to start a new website, Otaku Alcove: https://otakualcove.com/
When the devil girl Patty finds she’s too weak to summon an animal familiar, she chooses a human instead. His name: Norman Volcanello — an eccentric guy with a dangerous fascination with exotic life forms. As Patty and Norman set out to find her missing father, an offbeat adventure begins!
After egregiously skipping over many anime film and TV releases for 2017, I did at least felt like I owed it to myself to jam pack 2018 trying to unearth the best of the best from the past year. With so many great choices too numerous to name, Napping Princess immediately caught my eye. Whether it be the astonishing box key art, outlandish premise, or even Kenji Kamiyama (of Ghost in the Shell and Eden of the East directing fame) leading the charge, I could tell this probably would make for an unforgettable experience. Needless to say, that assumption definitely holds true and glad that I finally decided to give it a go.
Being long overdue for an update, I finally had some time to roundup the next set of titles for my anime collection. Without any further delay, here are the latest additions for September and October 2017.
A stage is set for magical girls, supernatural battles, and lingering dreams as high school student Hinako Shiari, after a tragic accident ending her ballet career is granted the powers of a Reflector, a magical girl. Together with the citrus sisters Lime and Yuzu that bestow her with this new found lease on life, her goal is to defeat creatures known as Sephira to grant a seemingly impossible wish.
With 2017 already fulfilling its unspoken promise of delivering a deluge of delectable games I will probably never be able to finish, it does become difficult to limit my commitment or even outright pass up on a particularly interesting find. Smaller projects especially seem to have this hold on me. Lionheart, a visual novel/RPG hybrid developed by doujin circle Shiisanmei is a fine example of one that is engaging, but a joy to come back to between play sessions. Players take on the role of Leon, a young man dreaming to be adventurer. After a chance meeting with a young woman named Maria, she enlisted his unique abilities to explore the Magic Labyrinth, “Libra Corridor.”
