About this blog

Here you'll be able to find plenty of stuff I do to entertain myself in my free time. Some of it is rather random, admittedly.

Playing Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai

I've been seeing people wondering about Daitoshokan's translation, so I'm making this compilation of screenshots just to show what the experience is like in English. The further down you go, the further into the game you are. But these screenshots are all from the first half of the common route and earlier, so I wouldn't worry terribly. I think the VN is super fun, and really, that's all I care about, to be honest.

Playing Wargroove

Just a video of me playing the puzzle mode of this game. I plan to do more of them, but I won't make a blog post for each one. Instead, they'll be replies on this one, probably. That said, I do plan to make something in this game involving the Fuwa community at a later date.

Fureraba Playthrough #2 - Common Route

This post will contain mild spoilers (though nothing really happens in it, so it's not really spoilers) for the common route section. Because of the large amount of screenshots, I've decided to make Hiiragi's specific events their own segment. I might even divide it between her events and the talk conversations. And I think I'll leave my screenshot spam at that.

Fureraba Playthrough #1 - Prologue

So I've been playing Fureraba for the whole day, and I have to say I really like it. Since I like it so much, I'm going to walk through the first few hours. Only real spoilers it might included would be for the first hour. Otherwise, just an endless torrent of funny scenes. And that's it for the scenes before we start getting choices. Next time, probably screenshots of a route, and those will contain spoilers for the route.

Playing the Tsundere -- Cinderella Phenomenon

Cinderella Phenomenon is a FREEeeee Otome game which you can get on Steam or itch.io. This is the story of Lucette (or whatever you choose to name her), the Crown Princess for the Kingdom of Angielle. Like all other Otome games I've played, this game has an ongoing mystery and a plot, and so I'd actually recommend the following route order: Rod Karma Rumpel Fritz (locked at start) Waltz (locked at start) Turns out this

"Curing" and "Changing" Characters are my Favourite Plotpoints in a Story

What would say if I told you that my pure self likes a VN about raising a slave? Let me explain my rationale. I have found that, in stories, one of the things I like most is "helping/curing" characters in whatever way possible, and that that help distinctly affects the person in question. This directly translates to my favourite types of heroines: Kuuderes and Tsunderes. Haruka in Never7 is a girl who is not particularly good at communicating, but the entirety of her route is spent on f

An Incomprehensible Panel is The Worst Thing You Can Do

Allow me to write down a short complaint. Why is it that, so often in manga, I find myself unable to even understand what is drawn? Never mind ugly drawings, when the reader can't understand what's represented on the panel, something is seriously wrong. I can forgive H-Scenes for this. Shot angles in those are traditionally bonkers and I've given up understanding what kind of anatomy those characters have, as its certainly not human (how'd you even get your leg over there?). Now, whe

Mr. Poltroon's Romance Manga

I was just about to do something productive. Thank god I thought to do this instead. Please feel free to recommend me romance manga, or ask for recommendations. I'd be happy to provide, or be provided with. This thread is to form a couple with this one, for I am somewhat well-versed in both areas: To begin with, it is important to highlight a few tags, which I'll be using for organisational purposes. Be fairly warned. I do not know what constitutes as a spoiler to you,

Permit Me a Rant on the Term "Overrated"

This will actually be far too brief to make a blog post around, but alas... What is "overrated"? Many things, apparently, but so far as I can tell the word itself is used to describe something that too many people like, or that is well liked for little reason. This is an inherently subjective word. Infuriatingly so. At its most basic, it means "too many people have a different opinion than mine", which if phrased that way means nothing. Yet so many people employ the word. There is no such

Mr. Poltroon's Lack of Vocabulary #5

I'll let you in on a little secret. These posts are set to publish automatically, and so I actually forget about them often. Nº2 just came out today and I was surprised to see it.

Mr. Poltroon's Lack of Vocabulary #3

Let's get a bit into the exact rules for the words on this list. One of two things must be true: Either it's the first time I hear a certain word, or that word has more meanings than I knew it had. Simply not remembering a word's meaning, which happens quite often, is not enough to get on this list. What could happen is that I forget I had ever heard a given word before, and in which case it gets onto the list just fine. sultry suss nugatory crick chiropractor

Poetry Day 2017

I couldn't simply allow this day to pass without trying to do something. Here's a poem I think I may have tried before, I'm unsure, in all it's incomprehensible glory. But worry not, there's a second poetry reading, a bit more normal this time.

Mr. Poltroon's Lack of Vocabulary #1

Despite my constant attempts at widening my vocabulary and introducing some variance to my word usage, it is doubtless that my knowledge remains meagre at best. In English and Portuguese both. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to make a series of blog posts detailing the various words, and expressions, that leave me befuddled when I fail to grasp their meaning. The greatest advantage this method confers is that I'll not only surprise everyone with how little I actually read (Visual N

To 'Love', and to be 'In Love'

DISCLAIMER: All that I mention represent my views mixed with basic scientific theories floating around. To 'Love', and to be 'In Love' I believe these two to be different. One does not necessarily love those they are in love with, and one is not necessarily in love with those they love. Sound confusing? Allow me to elaborate. To make this as clear as possible, let's take "romantic feelings" out of the equation. Would you say you love your parents? Or that you are in love with

A Rant on Shoujo Manga

Did I say shoujo? I meant just about every sodding romance manga. Back when I started reading manga, most of what I read were shoujo manga's. Very, very long shoujo manga where the couple only get together at the very end, if at all. Whilst I nowadays stand against this practice, for reasons I will later disclose, I can understand how one would enjoy the "dramatic" situations, "romantic" moments, standard "comedy", and stories about friendship and high school experiences. What I just desc

Favourite Female Characters #1 - "Sexy"

I have never really understood the term "sexy". I simply have no definition for it. I classify girls as "cute", "not cute", and "provocative" (in media only, obviously). The first two are self explanatory, but that latter one refers to characters who opt for revealing clothing, scandalous outfits or who have, either by choice of wear, or by the author's drawings, certain body parts unnecessarily emphasized. I dislike provocative characters, or perhaps its better to put it as "I couldn't care les

Patriotic Text Written by Poltroon

As it happens, my younger sister had to write a text for a Portuguese test, and I like it. Therefore, I translated it (probably not too well) and decided to read it aloud. In both languages: There exist various characteristics that can be considered crucial for surpassing the most difficult difficulties and reaching the most faraway goals. For an argument as simple as "Attempt, be daring, be courageous and persevere", many will ignore it outright. After all, just because we try to

To start with, it had Koestl as a translator, and his translation of Grisaia no Kajitsu very much made for half the VN's greatness. In my eyes, he proved himself as entirely capable of "translating", a broad term

Bollocks

Edit: I have uploaded it either way, so enjoy. In the process of recording myself playing Higurashi, it seems I didn't do enough testing beforehand and recorded nearly an hour of a pretty much blank screen. However, sound and music are just fine, and I read aloud every single line (no voices). Would anyone still be interested in seeing me play/read this? *posts on the blog where nobody ever reads* Sample of my technical issues: Now then, if you'll excuse me while I despair over t

Violet Hill Playthrough - Final Episode || What next?

As could have probably been easily predicted, I last left off 5 minutes near the end of the demo. As a consequence, the final one ended up being the shortest episode. Still, I've included a little bonus at the end, although equally short. This video is also in high quality, at least when compared to the rest. As for what I'm doing next, which is assuredly not the question first and foremost on your mind, I'll actually leave it up to your capable minds. I can do most everything except that
