You know what we don’t get enough of? Big figures such as Japanese writers and producers to communicate with western fans.With the times and technology bringing the world even closer together every year, more figures of VN and gaming scene are reaching out to the western fanbase.
This is a good change. I’d love to read and follow what big Japanese writers and producers are saying yet the language barrier has always proven to be something difficult to overcome, for many fans this is the same. Zero Escape sequel being on hold with an unknown future are terrible news. But you know what? I’m glad that Kotaro Uchikoshi is officially speaking out of the dire Zero Escape situation so everyone is aware of it. He has been responding to fans in English a few times in the past about it but right now he has made an English twitter account especially to communicate with the fans. Continue reading →
Mangagamer bringing you the horror in more than one way
News of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni games being licensed came as one of the best surprises of the year. Being able to have the opportunity of play the original material which the anime version was based on was something fans always wanted. Like many would, I perceived this as a chance to express my gratitude and pay my respects to the author, support those involved and legally purchase the original games. Although, I’m not able purchase every single piece of merchandise out there I do it whenever it’s economically possible to give something back to the author. Be that in manga, games, or any other form of merchandise. I think we can all agree on this on some degree.
For those who aren’t familiar with the title. Let me tell you that Higurashi is a high quality thriller mystery worthy of high praise. The story is engrossing to the point that you’ll lose track of time and soon submerge in this insane most complex world filled with mind screwing situations brought to us by the author Ryukishi07 and 07th Expansion. To most of us who are more familiar with the TV anime version thought that it was rather unfortunate that we were only able play the 1st arc of the game since it was the only one translated (Sonozaki sisters) After seeing what the original game provided and that it also explained the story even more, fans were static to see more of it. Things aren’t so great as you will see. Continue reading →
They already got a son. Never mind, that’s Cheese-kun.
Sunrise has been out of the scene for some time now. I’ve missed them. You’ve missed them. I’ve missed Sunrise being Sunrise. You’ve also missed them. I knew they had to come back eventually but I wasn’t expecting them to come back with more Code Geass in 2010 (a year with two Zero’s on it)
It’s been over a year since R2 ended and I’m still looking back on it every now and then, I haven’t forgotten. So I am not going to lie and say that I am not thrilled to hear that I might get to some more of Code Geass after all. I am actually ecstatic to hear the news but there is one tiny winy problem. Is Lelouch going to be on it? I cannot ignore that there is a side of me that doesn’t want me to see more CG or Lelouch. After the epic finale that Code Geas not all of us were that eager to see a continuation of the show. I was also very against this idea since a continuation will only lessen R2 ending. I didn’t want that. Yet, here I am. Continue reading →
