Help Me Name My 'Straight Male VN Fan Reviewing Otome Games' Blog!


Recommended Posts

Hi it's me!

I'm back!

I got married and stopped playing VNs (since they wouldn't go over too well with the wife) so I kinda ditched the community, but now I'm back!

See I've got a foolproof plan: while my wife may complain about me playing games where I romance cutesy anime girls she certainly can't raise an eyebrow at me playing games where I romance hot anime guys. So I've dusted off my good ol' PSP and am getting myself a nice backlog of otome games (I'm going off of a few Japanese lists of otome games with good plot for suggestions). And once I play through them I'm going to review them on a blog here! The whole concept is looking at these games from a straight male perspective, which may provide interesting insight as I'm obviously not the target demographic.

What I need is a good name for the blog. I was going to use 'Brotome', but that has sadly already been taken by a guy doing a similar gimmick on his Youtube channel. So now I'm fresh out of ideas for a good, catchy name for my blog. I've thought of a few dumb ones:

Reversing the Harem

Sausage Matsuri

But I'd love to hear some good ideas on what a good 'guy reviewing otome games' blog name would be!

This kind of sacrifice is worthy of praise.

Let's stay faithful with the latest advances on game naming, so how about Bishounen Whirlpool? :chaika:

Some friends have expressed interest in 'Sausage Matsuri' so I'm tentatively going for that.

 

Also my wife thinks the whole thing is hilarious and loves the idea. She just thinks moe anime girls are creepy, thus the ban on normal VNs.

 

Incidentally the first otome game I'm playing (Black Wolves Saga Last Hope) has an incredibly badass and interesting setting and backstory so half of me is worried I accidentally picked The Best Otome Game right off the bat and everything else is going to be a letdown while the other half is going 'holy crap if there are other otome games this good this project is going to be freaking incredible!'

 

Look forward to my review of Black Wolves Saga, coming soon!
