the otaku wonderland
One day I was kinda bored, and sorted through VNDB’s visual novels through rating — technically VNDB’s top visual novels (picture above), so to speak. The result was interesting and I was about to tweet my findings, and then realized I might as well just do it here since it’s actually kinda long.
To all those who have been following my blog since it’s infancy, you might notice I have a series of posts called “Visual Novels I Had Been Messing Around With“, where as it’s self-explanatory name indicates, is just me talking about visual novels I have been playing. Truly the most original of ideas, created by my past self, my phantom — the more amateurish writer in me that can string together English words so well English professors around the world are put to shame.
In any case, I have been ignoring that series of posts and haven’t update any posts since. However today is a good day to brush off the dust and go back to it one last time, as it is April 1st — April Fool’s day. I will be talking about five shitty visual novels I have no idea why I was even playing. Yes, laugh at me all you want today as I show you the five visual novels I recently played — the visual novels that can only be handled by true, absolute madmen.
So I have been researching dragons for the past week or so… I guess you can call me a dragon geek now, all thanks to Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon. Then I thought, “why not share my findings?” so here I am with this post where I talk about the origins of the dragon characters in the show.
Final Fantasy XIII is a game famous for it’s polarizing status. Since then, the game has spawned 2 more titles in this sub-series, and while each game definitely improved from the last, I am not too sure if the series actually deserved that much attention in the first place…
While I understand there are legitimately good light novels, a lot of the trashier ones get adapted for some reason, and eventually, a joke has eventually come about — in that we literally label these light novels as “trashy light novels”. However, today I’m going to argue the fact that these trashy light novels are important, and have a big influence on the light novel culture.
