Ikemen Revolution Review/Recap No. 3

It's that time again, time for another Ikemen Revolution post. Not too much happened since I last wrote, but I wanted to make one more post before the weekend started. If you're wondering why I haven't written about Ikemen Vampire lately, it's because it's taking me forever to get enough gold to clear the avatar challenge! I can't even remember what's happening in the route because it's been so long.

This post doesn't really have as many screenshots as my last ones, because a lot of the time I'm too busy enjoying the game so I forget to take them.

Let's just get to the plot, shall we?

Kissed by the Baddest Bidder - Baba's Route Review

Hello, everybody, and welcome to my second post today! I feel like I've been turning into a blogging machine lately, churning out loads of content. That's not a bad thing though, because I absolutely love writing these reviews. I've been playing so many mobile games this summer too! Maybe I should remove the bit on the sidebar that says I "occasionally" play mobage, because I seem to be playing them a lot now.

This review is going to be on a Voltage route that's currently out for free right now. I've never actually played one of theirs all the way through before, so this was quite a new experience for me. The game is Kissed by the Baddest Bidder, one that I actually have a bit of history with.

Ikemen Revolution Review/Recap No. 2

Hello, everybody, and welcome to my second Ikemen Revolution post. I have taken so many screenshots of this game this time, so the post should look a lot more colourful than my other ones. I was going to write this post tomorrow instead since I had something else planned for today, but a lot of interesting things happened that I really wanted to write about. Actually, today I even had enough magic crystals to buy a Premium Story, so I'm quite excited to talk about it!

(If you're wondering what I had also planned to post today, I was going to play another mobile otome and review one of the free stories on Love 365. The only reason I'm not playing console games right now is because it costs loads of money to buy new ones, and I don't want to exhaust the Vita's otome library in less than a year!)

So, let's get to the plot, shall we?

We've Received Our First Comment!

Hello, everybody! I am so glad to announce that Misty's Blog has received its very first comment! I cannot believe that I didn't notice it earlier. I've had this place since 2017, so I'm glad that we've finally had somebody actually like it enough to comment on it.

Now, what is this comment, you may ask? Well, it was posted last month on my post titled "The Breaking of Misty's World". It was posted by a very nice person called "Anonymous". They said "I love this blog", which makes me feel very happy. Thank you very much! I don't know who you are, but thank you for actually commenting on my blog. I never noticed this earlier because I think I have the notifications turned off.

It's great that this blog is still going and that people are actually reading it. When I started this blog almost two years ago, I had intended it to be a simple dumping ground for random thoughts. I didn't expect it to last this long and to change into what it is today. Even though this place doesn't get as many visits as my regular website, I still prefer working on this one.

That comment has made my day. Thank you to everybody who reads this blog, even if you don't want to comment. It's great to know that a lot of random strangers from across the world like looking at my stuff. :)

Thank you, and see you all on my next post!

Ikemen Revolution Post No. 1: First Impressions

I know I said that I'd wait to complete Napoleon's route before starting Ikemen Revolution, but I couldn't wait. After leaving the app sitting on my home screen for ages, I finally began to play it. I am so, so, glad that I did, because this game is really, really good.

In this post, I'm going to go straight into giving my first impressions on the app as a whole, then I'll start getting into the actual route. Let's get to it then, shall we?

Ikemen Vampire "Discipline Between the Sheets" Event - A Review

After yesterday's brief post discussing two of Cybird's current events going on in their games, I thought that it would be nice to do a proper post on one of them, specifically Ikemen Vampire's "Discipline Between the Sheets" story event. I've never actually played through an event all the way through before, as I always couldn't be bothered to do all of the love battles and all that nonsense just for some short story. But I need more excuses to blog about things, so this event was the perfect opportunity for that.

Just keep in mind that I'm only reviewing Arthur's "route" for this post. I have no plans to go through any of the others. Anyway, Arthur's actual route's coming out soon, so I might as well write about him to hype up his release, even though I probably won't be playing it for a long time yet.

You know what, I only just realised that it's Arthur's face who is on the app icon. I always thought that it was Napoleon. The artwork is from his "Dripping Wet" gacha card, in case you were wondering.

I didn't try to be one of those people who ranks on this event, I actually have no idea how you do that, and because it looks like you have to spend actual money to get up on the charts. All of the people who rank really high have these avatars with loads of fancy clothes, so it's obvious they've spent a bit of dosh on the game. Personally, I don't think it's worth it, but those girls can do whatever they want with their money.

Ikemen Vampire Recap/Review No. 10

Well, we’ve finally reached the tenth post in this series! That’s a lot of writing I’ve been doing. Today I had planned to write something different instead, but I came across another Avatar Challenge in Napoleon’s route, so I just thought that I’d write about this today.

This is my first post made using Windows Live Writer. I used to use this on my old Wordpress blog, so I thought that I’d start using it again. Hopefully the formatting turns out alright.

Just a Quick Little Post About Otome Events...

I managed to get a new computer! I'm super happy I have one now. This one seems so high-tech compared to my old one, it has facial recognition and everything!

I thought I'd test out its blogging capabilities by writing a little post about some of the mobile otome events I've been playing lately. I've even attached a video of one down below!

Ikemen Vampire Recap/Review No. 9

Yay! My broken computer managed to connect to Blogger all by itself! Poor thing. Even though it's on its last legs, I'm still working it hard to try and get these blog posts out.

Today is time for another IkeVamp post. I've managed to read about two and a bit chapters since I last wrote, so that's enough for some discussion. I feel that if I had waited another day to write this, I would've forgotten everything that I've read.

Let's get to the plot!

Ikemen Vampire Recap/Review No. 8

Good afternoon, fellow blog viewers. Welcome to another Ikemen Vampire recap-review thing. I don’t really know what this type of post is called! If you have only just tuned in, these posts are just ongoing things where I discuss the plot of this game and give my thoughts on it.
I just have to mention something sort of important first. My laptop is now on its last legs, after almost five years of service. The screen is literally hanging by two wires, since the hinges are both broken. This affects the Wi-Fi antenna, because for some reason the manufacturers decided to place it in the most vulnerable part of the whole computer! So now my computer can barely get any Internet signal, and when it does, it loads like Dial-Up. This of course affects how I can edit my blog and website. The only other computery things I have are my Windows tablet and an old Netbook that doesn’t have any drivers installed since I re-installed Windows on it. I used to manage my old blog on my tablet, but I’d rather not do that again since I hate touch-screen keyboards. I could actually write a post on my Xbox One, but I can’t find my USB keyboard anywhere.

Just because my computer’s about to bite the dust, it doesn’t mean that this blog will! Bubbles (yes, I gave my PC a name) actually still works fine apart from those two major issues. So I’m writing this post on Microsoft Word right now, and then I’m gonna wait for it to get a connection and then paste it onto my blog. I’m either going to get this thing fixed, or buy a new computer. I won’t let this kill my blogging speed though, don’t worry! Just expect a few less posts than usual. If you notice any formatting errors of any kind, blame the transition from Word to Blogger for that.

OK, now that we’ve gotten the serious stuff out of the way, let’s get to the discussion!

The Diabolik Lovers Anime: A Review/Ramble

Hello. I've literally just finished binge-watching the first season of the Diabolik Lovers anime. I never really thought that I could binge TV programmes like this, but I suppose that it has to be something that I really enjoy, like this series.

Instead of just watching the show like a normal person would, I wrote a few notes down in order to write a review for this blog. I know I usually tackle otome games, but this is otome-related, so it still belongs here, right?

So sit back and relax as you read my very long ramble about the Diabolik Lovers anime! Beware of spoilers for the anime and the games down below!

An English Patch of Diabolik Lovers Is Out!

I don't usually post otome news and that, but an English patch of Diabolik Lovers: Haunted Dark Bridal (the PS Vita version only) has just been released. So many wonderful people worked so hard on this, translating and proofreading it for everybody. I actually did a bit of proofreading myself for it, so if you recognise a bit of my writing style anywhere, that's probably why.

You have to buy the game first, of course, then download the patch. So far, ten people have already done so! Please note: you have to hack your Vita first, otherwise none of this patching would be possible.

I'm glad something like this exists. It would've helped me a lot when I played it a few months ago! Diabolik Lovers is one of those really popular franchises that everybody wants to play but can't because of the language level, so I'm glad that people will finally be able to experience it for themselves instead of reading route summaries. Maybe if loads of people buy the game after this, it'll convince Rejet to finally localise it themselves?

Anyway, you can find details on the patch by clicking here. If you scroll down a bit and look for a "strangepigeon6" in the credits, that's me! I wish that I could've done more proofreading, but I went on holiday and was unable to do it. I can't remember all of what I proofread, but I remember doing something from every route. My favourite bits I did were the chapters from Subaru's route, and Kanato's first ending. That ending I thought was amazing when I first played it.

I hope you all enjoy the patch! I'm quite happy that otome games are popular enough that cool stuff like this can happen. I feel quite proud to be a part of something like this.

That concludes my post for today. Have a nice day!

Apple and Ashlynn's Photo Shoot

To break up the seemingly endless stream of Ikemen Vampire posts, I came up with a solution: doll pictures. That's right. Specifically pictures of my girls Apple White and Ashlynn Ella. They recently just came back from a boil wash, so I wanted to show off their magnificent hair.

Out of the many pictures I took, only a few of them were good enough for this blog.

Ever After High dolls are so photogenic, aren't they?

Ikemen Vampire Recap/Review No. 7: MC Does Something a Bit Stupid

I've reached another avatar challenge, so I thought that it would be the perfect time to write another post about Ikemen Vampire and Napoleon's route.

Finally, I've found a decent title for this series of posts. It's better than just "Another IkeVamp Post" or "I Don't Know What To Call This Post" one billion times, isn't it?

Let's get straight to recapping and discussing the plot, shall we?

Another Ikemen Vampire Post - With a Very Original Title

I'm back again, with another sort of review/discussion/opinion piece on Ikemen Vampire! If you were wondering why it had been so long, blame the silly old avatar checks. I can't be asked to turn my iPod on every few hours to do the battles again, so it takes me a long time to complete them. I had sort of pushed Napoleon and his route to the back of my mind, because I was replaying a lot of my other otome games instead.

I've only managed to read a chapter and two fifths since I last wrote, but who cares! I couldn't even tell you what chapter it was, but it's the one with the third CG in it.

OK, let's get to the plot, shall we? Beware of spoilers down below!

An All New Blog Theme - Coming Soon to Your Computer Screen!

I have recently learned how to make basic blinkies and website buttons using Photoshop. Since I can do that, it shouldn't be hard to create a fancy title image for this blog, should it? That's why I am pleased to announce that soon - very soon - I will be changing this blog's theme completely, and the boring old title at the top will look 1000% percent cooler.

I've noticed that most otome blogs have a CG or something behind their title, so I'm probably going to do something like that. I've been obsessed with Yui Komori's design lately (I've been making loads of blinkies of her which nobody is going to ever use!) so I might use her. Expect a theme full of pink then!

I should really get on with making that header/title/whatever image now, so see you all later!

UPDATE: The theme's here now, and actually it looks quite good! I've still stuck to the bog-standard "simple" theme, but the colours and especially the header all actually look decent now. Yay, my blog finally looks proper!

Ikemen Vampire Update No. 5?

Here I am, back again with another Ikemen Vampire post!

A lot of things have happened, some that I cannot entirely remember, but I'll try to recap as much as I can. I tried to save some of the free chapter tickets for later, but they reset everyday so I ended up wasting them. Oh well. I suppose I learned from that mistake to use all of the tickets up the day you get them!
