Freshest News: Gakuen K otome spinoff, Amnesia musical, free English otome, Hakuouki part 2 movie


I really thought "K" is going to be a reverse harem with the bevy of bishonens. I dropped it after a couple of episodes. But my hopes for reverse harem has rekindled with the news of otome spinoff, "Gakuen K", where they're the club leaders in highschool. The game will be released next year. From CR
 
 

Here's the cast in costumes for the upcoming "Amensia" musical. The play will ran from January 9-19. From CR.





There's a new free English otoge entitled "Pyrite Hearts". It's about a fiery princess taking on a challenge to live outside the palace.  From otome-jikan. 


The second part of the Hakuouki movie will hit the theaters on March 8, 2014. From the official site.


Anime Review: Diabolik Lovers


Diabolik Lovers -  12 episodes

Yui was sent off by her father to live in a mansion with six sadistic vampire brothers. The operative word is "sadistic". Little girls please watch this when you're older, 'kay? I love the overall gothic feel of the anime. From the beautiful character designs, the red-purplish palettes down to the little details like the clock in the episode title cards. But as for the storyline, it creep me out at first but as it progress it becomes repetitive. Each of the brother had their several turns of of harassment and of sucking her blood. I get it that it's going to have a lot of fan service since it's a vampire story after all. I was just not expecting non-stop fetish scenes. And that's for a 12-episode anime running for 15 minutes each (inclusive of 1 recap ep). If you were Yui, it would feel like 300 Shades of Gray (or in this case red), 360 degrees and 24/7 with the six Samaki brothers. At first, I find myself drawn to the mysterious Subaru. But towards the end, I switched to Ayato who I dismissed as annoying at the start. 

There were a lot of unanswered questions in my head about the background of the characters. I searched the otome wikis and found out how really dysfunctional their family is. I wish they could have highlighted it more to justify why they're twisted like that. To sum it up, you're aware it's ridiculous but you can't help yourself either not to give in to your dark desires.

Manga Review: Princess Nightmare


Princess Nightmare -2 volumes complete by Mei Noguchi

Little goes to Rose Academy to experience normal life. (The heroine's name is so strange right? I liked how she got her name.) Little is actually a centuries-old teenage-wanabe vampire who's blending in with other supernatural friends but mysterious things starts happening in their school. I don' think my summary gives justice but I don't want to spoil it for you. I thought it was just your straight up average vampire story but there's a bigger, darker picture as the characters shows their true selves. And the scanlation left me hanging... I really wanted to know what happens next. I loved the story but so-so with the art style. It looks amateurish at times. This manga is based on an otome game. The picture above is from otome.

Even if this seems fit for Halloween, the story started on one December fateful day. I'm trying too hard to sell this as a Christmas post. Hah!
