And I’m back!

Hello, lovely readers!

I’m very excited to announce that I am back.  And hopefully I will be able to stay that way for awhile.  I’ve been spending some time navigating the Voltage world again after being away for some time.  And wow!  There are some changes!  Like…

  • Main stories that are chopped in half so that they cost us $7.99 US (not really a fan of this change)
  • Movies for each app that open up and try to play every time I open the app (not sure if I’m a fan of this change)
  • Options for us to buy endings (definitely won’t be bothering with this feature!)
  • More stories/apps! (although, some are feeling strangely familiar to older apps)
  • The option to rewind (definitely a fan of this feature!  Especially for when I am trying to take screencaps!)

I’ve got my first review up and going; it will be published as soon as this update goes through.  Any recommendations on which stories/apps/characters I should spend my money and time on next?

Tsubasa Shirai – Main Story Review

2014-05-24 22.48.54(Tsubasa sure knows how to be a gentleman.)

Basic Story Premise: You ask for 10 more days to live because you’ve been put in charge of your first official project at work, and you don’t want to let this amazing opportunity slip you by.  It doesn’t hurt that the project revolves around a super popular and good-looking model, Tsubasa.  You’re initially quite taken by the cheerful model, but you quickly become conflicted when you realize that his friendly exterior may just be a fake facade.  Who is the real Tsubasa hiding behind the angelic smile? And speaking of angelic, what will you do when you discover that he is not just a celebrity model but also an angel?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and the CGs after the jump.  No walk-through because both endings are available to read after you finish the story once.   Continue reading

Prince Kuon Casiraghi – Main Story Review

Hello, lovely readers! It’s been a long time (or, at least, it feels like it to me)!  Thank you for those who left supportive messages; they were all greatly appreciated.  I finally have time to return to the world of Voltage otome, but I don’t even know where to start!  So much has happened since my hiatus, and my long list of requests just keeps getting longer.  I’m going to start with a review on Voltage’s newest app, and then jump back to my list of requests.2014-05-14 17.19.33(Thanks for the warm welcome, Kuon.  Let’s get started!)

Basic Story Premise: You’re puzzled to receive an invitation for a potential marriage interview with Kuon, especially after your awkward dance the night before.  At the informal interview/dinner, you are wooed by a charming prince who showers you with compliments and– wait, hold on.  What am I thinking; this is Prince Kuon we’re talking about.  Nevermind, Kuon is still very much uninterested in you and actually bails out of dinner before even reaching dessert.  Whatever.  You return home content to continue with your normal life.  Imagine how surprised you are when you open your eyes in the middle of the night and realize that somebody is sleeping in your bed with you.  Apparently, Kuon has run away, and he blackmails you into hiding him at your place.  How are you going to successfully hide a Prince in your tiny apartment?  What is he running away from?  And why are you willing to go through so much trouble to help him anyhow…?

It’s been a little slow….

Hello, readers. Just wanted to apologize for the lack of updates recently. A hospitalized family member has been taking up all my free time when I’m off from school and work. Positive thoughts are appreciated.

I will be working on a post (or 2!) this weekend. Will most likely be a reader request and a Metro PD review.
