sol’s Ranting Space #1 – A Bad Day with a Touch of a Hilarious Message

I feel like whenever I blog, there is always something I rant about. So time for a ranting space, cause people need to vent and I am only human.

Well, I believe we all have those days, am I right? You know, those days where everything goes wrong, because the universe is plotting your demise behind your back and it feels like the next crack will break your back and then you will fall into black hole and return to nothingness? Well my day wasn’t that bad, but if any one feels like the above… I am sorry, but I just have no words of comfort other than… I hope ya feel better!

My day was more salty than anything really. lol
I’d honestly rather talk about something more happy and filled with rainbows, but… meh, screw that. ( ̄▽ ̄*)

sol’s Weekly Update #6

Hey, minna-san! I’m back!

Blog & Site Update
My semester has finally come to an end, and since I will be taking a break for the most part this summer, I’ll finally be able to get around to finishing up that OZMAFIA!! review, among other things. I’m not completely taking a break, however, as while I have increased work hours, I’m also going to be doing some independent studying this summer with Japanese linguistics, along with practicing and improving my art skills as a Fine Art student. Even so, I really want to get back to posting here more frequently than I have, and I’m also going to try to get some more reviews in. I actually invested enough to purchase a PS Vita, as well as some more visual novel based games (namely otome)! You can see the games I plan to review here.

I know I still have a lot of games to get to, but with more time on my hands, I’ll be trying to knock a few of them off the TO-DO list. To be honest, most of my free-time during the Spring semester was taken up by, well… just blame it all on Nier:Automata and Persona 5. Because, man… you gotta admit that those two are ADDICTIVE!! One. does. not. simply. stop. playing. them. ( ・᷄ㅂ・᷅ )

With that being said, OZMAFIA!!’s review is nearly done, I have long finished the game, and I’m just needed to add some finishing touches. The game itself was a rather interesting concept, but I will save my opinions on it for the review. I will say though that the character reviews go by pretty quick. As they tend to be quite similar in format. Yeah, I’m sure you can probably tell how this review will go if there wasn’t something that stood out in each, if not, most routes.

I’ll try to have the character reviews and the overall review up by sometime next week, the end of next week being the latest.

I’m still not sure which game to start next. But I’ll probably start Shizuku no Oto, since it is a relatively short game (2-10 hours).

That rounds up this week’s update. As always minna-san, stay frosty. ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪♬
