Kakuriyo: Hotel for Spirits

Blubberblabber.comAlright, today I’ll be going into an anime show called,” Kakuriyo”. It revolves around a girl named, Aoi, who was pretty much an ordinary girl other than the fact that she could see Ayakashi (aka other worldly beings) all her life. Things take a strange turn in her daily life after her grandfather died. Soon after his funeral, she gets a visit from Ōdanna, a handsome Ogre demon who spirits her away to the Hidden Realm so she can become his bride.

Totally confused about her new situation, she demands an explanation. Turns out her good old grandfather, Shiro, left a huge debt behind to Ōdanna and his hotel and never paid it back before he died. Knowing he couldn’t pay back the amount in time, he made a deal with Ōdanna saying that in exchange for his huge debt, he could take his granddaughter, Aoi, as his wife instead. Messed up, isn’t it?

Shiro

Even if this encounter was inevitable, Shiro could have at least warned her about the agreement so she could be mentally prepared when it happened. I know some of you out there would probably say ,’she would have run away’ or something like that, but let’s face it. Their Ayakashi from another realm, I’m pretty sure that no matter where she went in the world they were going to find her and bring her back kicking and screaming. Moving on, Aoi really didn’t want to get married to him for obvious reasons even though he was good-looking, kind-hearted and seemed to be wealthy enough to take good care of her for the rest of her life. So, she offered to pay the debt off by working for him in his hotel, the Tenjin’ya.

After the deal was made he became a bit of a dick to her and was super sure that she would come running back to him the moment, she realized that wouldn’t be able pay it all off fast enough. What he didn’t expect to happen was for her to find her place in the hotel and make her own eatery.

As time passes for her in the hotel, she meets all kind of new people, spirits and Ōdanna and Aoi get closer and closer. The show is still ongoing so I’m going to assume that they fall in love with each other and still get married in the end, but who knows maybe their will be a whole different ending to this. I do like this anime and I kind of feel like they got this idea from Spirited Away which is a very good movie by the way. There is a bit of mystery going on in the show and a lot of comedy, so if your into those kinds of genres then I would look into this anime quickly.

Thanks for Reading!

Incarceron

edu.glogster.comWarning: This may contain spoilers!

So, I know its been a while but I’m going to be talking about book this time around. I did say I wanted to add more books to the blog so here I go.

This one is called,”Incarceron”, that was written by Catherine Fisher. Now I will admit I was browsing the book store and this one happened to catch my eye. I can say without a doubt that I don’t regret buying this book at all.

Its revolves around two different people Claudia and Finn. Claudia was the daughter of the Warden that watched over and controlled Incarceron. She’s also in an arranged marriage to the queen’s only son. Finn, on the other hand, is a boy who was sent Incarceron a few years ago and not only doesn’t remember how he got there in the first place, but doesn’t remember his life before that, as well.

To anyone living in Incaceron, it’s the most hellish prison on Earth with no way out. To the people living outside of it, it’s a paradise that people can only dream about because only really special people can get in. (I smell trouble and a conspiracy here!)

As you read, the book switches between Claudia and Finn’s point of view and later on you see how these two people are connected with each other. This book is really has a steam punk feel to it and it really shows how there are many types of prisons in the world and it comes in many forms.

There are many interesting characters in this story but if I had to choose the one I loved and hated the most; then it would be Claudia. I loved how she used the ultimate force of girl power in her time facing off against all her enemies and not letting the system tell her what she could and could not do. For me personally, her only flaw was how innocent she was sometimes, the deeper in the game she got herself in the more she couldn’t come to terms that some people in this world will go as low as they possibly can in order to get what they want.

The one I hated the most was Keiro. Not the queen, the queen’s son or even the warden who all deserve a place in hell for what they’ve done, but Keiro really takes the cake with me. Keiro is Finn’s oath brother in Incarceron; as the title implies they sworn an oath to each other that they will always take care of each other and if one dies the other must avenge him. The thing is with me at least, those are just words. Words that can easily be broken given the right circumstances and this prison provides a ton of those. Keiro’s that type of person that looks trustworthy on the outside, but is full of shit on the inside. Everyone in this entire book tells Finn that Keiro is going to betray him over and over, but Finn has such blind faith in him and the oath that he in complete denial about his character. There are a lot of times that Keiro does some crazy or suspicious crap in this story. All you can hope for Finn is that he wakes up with a cup of reality sitting on the table; waiting for him.

With how this book ends, it kind of makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. Things are getting really intense with how things are going. I really enjoyed the adventure, the drama and the mystery this story contains and can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

Thanks for reading!

We Happy Few

WTFGamersOnly.comTold you this my next post wasn’t far behind. Alrighty then, let’s get into the meat and potatoes now.

This time around I’ll be talking about one of the new games that’s come out recently called,” We Happy Few,” a action-adventure game that was developed by Compulsion Games and can be on your pc or console. I heard a little about this game and when I got to see the trailer I knew I had to see more.

we-happy-few.wikia.com/wikThis centers around Arthur who from the looks of things is responsible for helping his company control the news to the public. According to the story, the United Kingdom lost the war to the Germans in an alternate universe where the Americans didn’t join in the war as the United Kingdom’s allies. One of the demands that the Germans made when they won the war was from them to give up all of their children for whatever reason.

They had no choice but to obey so they sent every child under 13 on a train to Germany. One of those unfortunate kids ended up being Arthur’s younger brother, Percy. As time went by the citizens of the United Kingdom slowly grew insane with guilt for what they’ve done to save their own skin, so they let their government to order scientists to make a drug called, Joy. This drug does exactly what the name implies; it makes you so happy that its creepy. I wouldn’t be surprised if people under the drug suddenly broke a limb or witness someone die and wouldn’t care too much about it. Anyway, after this drug was made the government made it a law that everyone had to take this drug, NO EXCEPTIONS.

So, now everyone is super happy for no reason. What the government failed to mention to everyone is that in order for the drug to trick your mind that your happy is for it to erase your memories, so now no one remembers anything about anything. In the game Arthur mentions things they’ve forgotten like “No one remembers what they read” or “When do we start eating rats?”

Speaking of rats enjoy this reaction video of gamers reacting to one of the surprising and disgusting moments in the game down below:

Anyway, Arthur remembers his long-lost brother after all this time after seeing a picture of them together in a newspaper. He decides to stop taking his Joy and goes on an epic journey to leave the country in order to find his brother in Germany. Better said than done with this mission, no one can go out the country without the proper paperwork plus if someone in the game suspects you then your chases by an angry mob and if caught by the police they’ll shove Joy back down your throat.

As you play the game you start to notice lots of story based things going on in here. For example, the super elite higher ups aren’t on Joy and that some people who you encounter in the game on missions are only acting like their on Joy all the time in order to avoid punishment.

The gameplay is really good and has a bit of a BioShock feel to it. The storyline is really interesting and so are the characters that you encounter in the game. I’m not going to ruin what happens at the end, but for me I was kind of disappointed because it’s not the good ending that I wanted to see, I just expected more and it leaves more questions than answers for me, at least. Still doesn’t stop me from saying that this was a really good game and if you like action, adventure, survival or a game with an awesome storyline then this is the game I would consider trying out.

Moving Again?

Hello everyone.

I just wanted to let all you lovely people know that I’m moving the site again. Where to do you ask. Well, the site is moving over to Blue Host, so if you’re wondering why the site isn’t in WordPress anymore than that’s why. Now, just because I’m moving from this platform doesn’t mean that it sucks.

Ni No Kuni 2

G2A.comAlright everyone, this time I’m going to be talking about a game called,” Ni No Kuni 2″. This game was developed by Level-5  and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. I know that this is the second game in the series, but I’m only going to be talking about this one.

Its revolves around our two main characters Evan and Roland. Roland is the president in our modern world that gets teleported to another world after a disaster happens in his world and he almost dies. When he first appears he encounters, Evan, a human-cat hybrid that is next in line for the throne in the Ding Dong Dell kingdom. Trouble comes barreling their way when they realize that their being invaded and have to escape the palace before it too late.

After escaping the palace, Roland vows to stay in this world with Evan and help him build a new nation, where everyone can be happy. This is already a challenge in itself, but things get even more difficult when they meet Doloran who was a king to a forgotten nation over two thousand years ago. When they discover his plan to rip away other rulers kingsbonds from them in order to help him summon the Horned One, they realize that their racing against the clock.
PlaystationLifestyle.comFor those of you who don’t know a kingsbond is a bond that connects the ruler to not only their subjects, but their Kingmaker. A Kingmaker is pretty much like a god that acts like a guardian to the ruler; having a Kingmaker tells everyone around them that they are worthy enough to rule. That’s one of reasons why Evan can’t go strolling back to his Kingdom whenever he feels like it. Even if he were to take down the traitor Mausinger and all of his lackeys, he still wouldn’t be able to sit on the throne because he hasn’t gotten his Kingmaker yet.

He was supposed to get it during the crowning ceremony the same day that he met Roland and well……you can tell how well that played out for him.

Reddit.comSo, Evan goes to the Kings Cradle to get his own Kingmaker where he then meets Lofty. A squishy, yellow and spiked little thing, they were really disappointed and for good reason. Everyone else’s Kingmaker looks awesome and badass while his looks pathetic and weak looking.

Continuing on their journey they meet a lot of different characters along the way. Their all unique in their own way and bring something new to the table. I love all the problems and adventures they get into to if your into adventure or open world games. This game is also very generous when it comes to collecting items. Items are everywhere in the game, you can’t miss them.

What they make easy in collecting items and treasures they make harder when it comes to fighting monsters. You have to constantly be fighting to get a high enough level to beat any mini or big boss. Granted you don’t have to get the recommended level to beat the boss, but it’ll make the fight a lot easier on you if you did. You know the rule when you play against rpg bosses? Have 99 potions in stock so you can stay alive the entire time.

Sadly that rule does not apply in Ni No Kuni 2. They have it where no matter how potions/hi-potions or in this case soreaways you have in stock if you go into battle your only allowed to use ten of them. Sucks right? This makes fighting bosses a lot harder than it already is. Don’t worry it’s still very possible to kick boss ass even with this restriction.

I wouldn’t recommend this game to first time RPG players only because its different from the normal ones and could be a lot harder in some areas. I really loved the graphics in this game; it made me feel like I was playing inside a movie created by Hizo Miyazaki and Ghibli Studio. I hope that another game like this is already in woodwork for the future. This game was very enjoyable and fun to look at, I hope you all like it as much as I did playing it.

Aggretsuko: The Death Metal Panda

denofgeek.comWelcome, welcome, welcome!

Recently, I just got done watching an anime called, “Aggretsuko”, that I was really on the fence about. The main reason was because of the fact that the anime style wasn’t the usual kind that I would watch. At first glance, it looks more like a cartoon than an anime, but once I was done watching the first episode two things went through my mind.

One: This is definitely an anime show.

Two:  Totally in love with this show!

It’s about a red panda named, “Retsuko who works a regular nine to five office job for a company. But, what no ones knows about her is that she loves singing death metal karaoke whenever she’s stressed about something. After, I watched her scream-sing about how shitty her boss was in the company building bathroom, I knew I had to see more and before I knew it I went through the entire first season.

imgrumweb.com
Fenneko

Now when she’s not working at the company in the day, she’s at her favorite karaoke bar at night; singing her stress away. She goes there so often that the employees know her by name. Retsuko suppresses a lot of her emotions during work because she’s afraid that if she was herself and said what was actually on her mind during work, she would be fired and not have any friends or any kind of social life.

I can say we can all relate to her in some kind of way. When you really want to say or do what you really feel, but your mental filter comes in, so you don’t. Anyway, I really like the characters in this show if I had to my favorites it would be the trio (Fenneko, Retsuko and Haida).

Fenneko is a fox that should quit her job and be a detective instead. Reason being she has a habit of going through extreme means to find any info or dirt on any person that catches her eye. Retsuko can’t even change her daily routine without Fenneko finding out about it. You can’t hide anything from this girl.

Aggretsuko Wiki-FandomHaida is a hyena and has been Retsuko’s friend and co-worker for the last five years. Has time passes you realize that he’s developed a crush on Retsuko and doesn’t know how to confess his feelings for her. As you watch him, you realize how good of a match they would make if they got together. She’s a death metal singer and he dresses like a rocker when he’s not at work and plays an electric guitar.

Plus if you listen to their voices when they say Retsuko’s name it kind of sounds like their saying red skull instead. It’s really funny considering her hobby. This show is really enjoyable and I have to thank the creators for making this and Netflix for airing it into the world and into our hearts. The 2nd season doesn’t come out until 2019 and until then I’ll patiently be waiting.

God of War Saga Continues

wowchannelz.comToday I’ll be ranting about the very popular action-adventure God of War game that came out this spring. It was developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

The story revolves not only around Kratos but his son, Atreus, as well. Their story starts with the game trying to pull at your heart-strings by showing the Krato’s new wife’s funeral. Sad, right?

I swear this man can’t have anybody without them dying on him for some strange reason. Speaking of strange reason, the game never reveals how she died. Was she sick? Did someone kill her? Was it some kind of freak accident? Or was it her time because this was dated back in the days where everyone didn’t have access to medicine, treatments and all that? I guess we’ll never know.

I have my own theory about why and how she died, but if I would to get into that I would have to spoil a couple of things for the people who haven’t played this game yet. It’s a big reveal about who she was which is why I’ve decided not to talk about it this time.

AminoApps.comMoving on with the father and son duo, so before she died she told them to spread her ashes at the top of the tallest mountain in all the realms. Set out to do just that the duo head on their first journey together towards the mountain. Now for anyone whose played a God of war game in the past knows that Kratos is a badass and can take care of himself, but now he has a child with him that has never left the forest and is about to see a lot of different things.

At first, Kratos tries to make this boy grow up fast because he really doesn’t know how to parent. He pretty much left that up to the wife almost the whole time, but as time goes by in the game you see them get closer and closer. It’s really heart warming to see the bond between father and son get stronger and stronger.

Some people who I’ve watched play the game get upset about his new fighting style because they were so used to one way that Kratos fights and that’s okay. Don’t worry guys, his fighting gets better. Trust me!

usapostclick.comAlso, I wanted to say that some people are basing off what they know about Norse mythology from Disney and Marvel movies. That is a NO NO! Let me explain, when certain people saw certain things happen with the Norse gods in the game they get confused about why this and that happened when in the Marvel movie it was totally different. You have to understand that the way the Marvel movies made the gods out to be isn’t the same as the real story behind it. They just picked and chose certain details that they thought would be interesting or better yet make them as close as the comics as possible. So, you have to read the actual lore in order to get some things that happened in this game. If you don’t want to that’s fine, too.

Glad to get that off my chest. I know I went a little off topic there but that’s okay. This game’s graphics and storyline go beyond its previous standards and if you’ve seen the ending then you already know that theirs another God of War game already in the woodwork for our enjoyment. Now, this is just my opinion but I think this next game will be its last and I’m just going off what I’ve seen in the game. If you like adventure, action, gore or fantasy then this game is for you! See you next time!

Darkness of Phantom Paradise

Welcome back everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July this year. If not I hope this new comic that I discovered will make your day a little brighter.

m.webtoons.com
Hayate

This story is called, “Phantom Paradise” which was made by Rurisen (L. Zhu) and its about a young boy named, Hayate, who tells his side of the story and how he became the enemy’s emperor after swearing to his best friend that they would both one day help take down the queen of phantom paradise and go to heaven.

It goes into Hayate’s past of when they were younger and how he became the way he did. Just from reading a chapter or two you realize that he’s not evil, just misunderstood. That he had to make the tough decisions in his past to get where he his now while his best friend was suffering from a demonic coma the entire time this was taking place. From the way the world is described I would say it would be some kind of spirit world or purgatory. That’s because everyone who lives there is aware of spirits, ghosts and demons and that they all had previous lives before they got there.

They don’t really go into detail of each characters pasts since this is still an ongoing story, but until they do I suggest you use your imagination. Now, you’ll notice quickly in this story that women are the dominant gender in that world which I wouldn’t have a problem with if it wasn’t for the fact that almost every female character in this story is an evil bitch! Women are more superior to men in Phantom Paradise because of the fact that they can use magic and have become stronger than men in combat.

Pikcat.comThe only use that men have in this world are their mana which women can absorb to make themselves stronger which is why men are either a woman’s concubine, servant, slave, husband, etc. Pretty much the system is the more men you have under the more powerful that woman happens to be which is probably why the queen is so damn powerful. Speaking of the queen, it hasn’t been explained as to why she’s a skeleton yet in the story which I find odd. When I first saw her I thought she was only wearing a skeleton mask, but then you see later that her whole body is that way.

Does she make her body that way only when she’s in public?

Is it a curse?

Is she so old that her body melted away and the only thing keeping her alive is her magic?

I don’t know and we may never know this answer until the creator decides to put it in the story. If some of you already know the answer by any chance, don’t hesitate to tell me in the comments below. Back to Hayate, he becomes a concubine in training in the royal palace and he constantly has to fend off other trainees, jealous concubines, ghosts, monsters while staying under the radar so nobody finds out that he can do Magic!

Yes. ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right he can do magic which as you know no man in Phantom Paradise was able to do. But, it’s not just the fact he can do magic that makes him important its it the fact of his true identity which if the wrong people found out would do everything in their power to make sure he ceases to exist. What is his true identity you ask?

Well, your going to have to read it in order to find out the answer. This is very good story that will suck you really quick. If your into cute guys, fantasy, action and the supernatural then you’ve got to give this comic a try and see how you like it.

Thanks for Reading!

Detroit: Become Human

TheVerge.com
Markus

Have another great game to tell you all today. It is called, ‘Detroit: Become Human’ which was developed by Quantic Dream and published Sony Interactive Entertainment. It is one of the newest and popular games that is causing a buzz in the gamer world where your choices decide how the story plays out. I became extremely excited to get my hands on this game after playing the demo.

Let me get into the meat of the story, its revolves around three different androids with the names Markus, Kara and Connor. Markus is an android that takes care of an old kind-hearted man who is a world-renowned artist. Kara is an android to be a maid and caregiver to Todd and his daughter, Alice. Connor is the first ever detective android that was sent by Cyberlife to find the cause for the growing reports of deviants appearing not only in the city, but all over the world.

Deviants is the name given to androids that have malfunctioned and have started to express emotions and thoughts on their own. The humans become scared of this problem in the androids because they don’t know the cause and aren’t sure what would happen if their android suddenly turned and decided to no longer take orders from their owners. After, playing this game it reminds me so much of what happened in the past when their were people owning slaves. The only differences between the two is that it’s not about different colors, but a different species and that it has a modern touch to it, as well.

WKOW27.com
Kara

This game will tug on your heart in so many ways that you won’t know what emotion to feel anymore. You’ll find out that if you don’t think fast enough, you could make things go terribly wrong for yourself very fast in this game. Speaking of thinking fast, I recommend you enjoy the intense stress that is sure to come while playing this game and make spot on decisions instead of pausing the game so you could ‘stop and think about it’. Its way more fun that way in my opinion.

I’ll say that you don’t get the outcome that you’re looking for then don’t fret. You can always go back later and change things to get a different ending and there are so many paths that you can choose from that it’ll make your head spin! I suggest that you go through the game once without going back, so you can experience everything with your honest choices. I really, really enjoyed this game and I hope that they’re already in the woodwork to make another just as good or even better.
