Go here for my review of the full game

Just recently a brand new Nitro+ visual novel titled “Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi” (“Totono” for short) was released, along with a demo version on its official site. After playing said demo, I figured I’d share my initial impressions on the title. I’ll include some plot details as well – seeing how this is a demo, I highly doubt I can possibly spoil anything major, but I figured I’d give a warning for those that want to go into it without any prior knowledge.

Berserk: Golden Age Arc III Ending Song – “Breakthrough” by Kaname Kawabata (Lyrics translation)

blackswordsman

Below you will find my translation of the lyrics to the song “Breakthrough” by Kaname Kawabata (from the duo Chemistry), played during the ending of the third and final Berserk: Golden Age Arc movie. I know Commie has already translated it, but I wanted to do my own version, because it’s a good song, and also because Berserk is one of my favorite things ever. I didn’t actually read Commie’s translation before I started working on mine in order to avoid being influenced by their version.

[Review] Kara no Shoujo 2

kara no shoujo 2 title[aka Kara no Shoujo – The Second Episode or Uro no Shoujo]

JP title: 虚ノ少女

Opening movie

Earlier today I finished reading Kara no Shoujo 2 – the sequel to Innocent Grey’s 2008 murder mystery VN. My review of the predecessor is over here if you’re interested. I did a full completion with all the endings, including the True End. So I suppose I’ll have to share some of my thoughts on it. I’ve also written a spoiler-heavy entry sharing my thoughts on the True End and various other aspects of KnS2’s plot, you can read it by clicking here, in case you don’t mind being spoiled (or if you’ve already read the VN).

Also: as stated above, this will be a spoiler-free review, so I’m not planning to give away major plot details / twists. However, since this is a direct sequel to the first Kara no Shoujo, spoilers for that game will be unavoidable. Only read this if you’re familiar with the True End of the original.

[Review] Juniper’s Knot

Juniper's Knot 2013-06-18 00-27-50-88

The game is free, you can download it here: http://junipersknot.dischan.org/

(This is a spoiler-free review)

Juniper’s Knot is an OELVN -original English language visual novel- created by Dischan Media, and I’ve just finished reading it a few minutes ago. So here’s a brief review of it.

As the novel is painfully short, it is difficult to go into much detail without spoiling the experience for first-time readers. So I won’t. As far as length is concerned, for most people, it will take no more than an hour to finish all of it – maybe an hour and a half if you’re a slow reader. In any case, the story is told from the perspective of the only two characters present in it, a young boy and a female demon. The chance encounter of these two vastly different individuals is what Juniper’s Knot aims to explore.
