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.

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!

Pochi Kuro: The Demon Realm of Gluttony

MyAnimeList.netHappy New Year everyone! Let’s have a great start to the new year.

For today’s manga, I’ll be talking about,”Pochi Kuro” that was written and illustrated by Naoya Matsumoto. In this one, our story revolves around a pair of thuggish demons named Kuro and the cat demon Reo who dream like all other demons that they could one day eat human meat. Apparently, humans are very rare in appearing in the demon world and if by some chance of fate that they did appear only the nobles and royal family have the privilege of eating them.

That’s why for common demons like Kuro and Reo can only dream about them until one day from a stroke they find a human girl unconscious in the river. Of course, they wanted to eat her but it didn’t take long for Kuro to get attached to her and name her, Pochi.

Eventually, Kuro fell in love with Pochi and promised to take her back to the human. Sadly, one of the reasons that humans appear very rarely in the demon world is that there is only way from someone to go in and out between worlds and its only in one area that is protected in a powerful shield of magic that can destroy any demon just from touching it. But, since Pochi is immune to magic because she’s human they think that place is her best bet.

MangaReader.netThis series is still ongoing, but it’s really funny and filled with demons fighting it out to get to Pochi. It turns out that their might be a love triangle going on between Kuro, Prince Ishizu and Pochi. I can’t wait to find out if she stays or goes in the end, but so far the only mysteries in this manga are how did she get into the demon world in the first place? Why is Kuro so powerful for a low common demon? I think Kuro is going to be an important person later and it turns out he’s royalty too somehow. We have so many devilishly handsome princes making an appearance in this story that I wouldn’t be surprised if he was one, too.

I can’t wait for the new chapters to come out and reveal what thrilling adventures they will go through next and I hope you will, too. If demons, comedy and action are your forte then give this manga a try and see how you like it.

Resident Evil 7

The new horror game called ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ was made by Capcom and this is being played by everyone player and their mom right now and for good reason. I really like this game because of their new take on zombies all together and it keeps you wondering on what the hell is going on in this game.

 

The story revolves around a guy named Ethan who is trying to find his wife who has been missing for 3 years. Then, out of the blue he gets a e-mail from her saying,” Come get me”. So, he travels all the way to Louisiana to go pick her up. Now I don’t know about you guys but if my wife called me after missing for 3 years telling me to come get her with no freaking explanation sure enough I would either ignore it thinking its some kind of prank or either take it to the police. Instead, of being a total dumbass and driving all the way to Louisiana without telling anyone where your going to go pick her up.

All throughout the game I’m just thinking ‘Ethan, you idiot’,’Why doesn’t anything freak you out’ and ‘Your a total badass’. One of the things that got me was Ethan’s natural steel trap on his own fear. Even with mutated zombies, mutilation and what not going on in the house he doesn’t really have any reaction to any of it. Even when he was stabbed in the hand the first time, he had such a mellow like reaction to it that I just had to rationalize it and say it’s probably adrenaline because if that was me you know I would be crying and screaming.

Also, I loved the zombies in this game. Their are two types: the black goo mutated zombies with razor sharp teeth and the intelligent humanoid zombies who you couldn’t tell were zombies unless they start cutting off their own limbs or something. I think the slogan for this game is that famous moment in the beginning where Jack knocks him out and says,” Welcome to the family, son”. You hear that everywhere if you’re talking about Resident Evil 7 and no players you can’t avoid that moment no matter what you do.

 

Spoiler Alert in Coming

The only thing that I wish they would explain is Lucas. After you beat Lucas in his game, he runs away but you never see him again so I just want to know what happened to him? Did he die or was he turned back to normal after defeating grandma? Was he working for Umbrella? Will we see him again? Was he really a zombie or was he just a super crazy guy? They never really answer these questions and there is talk of Lucas being put in a DLC. Maybe they will answer everyone’s questions during that.

This is definitely one of the best Resident Evil games that they’ve ever made. If you don’t think you play the game but like watching the gameplay instead then I recommend Pewdiepie, Markiplier or Jacksepticeye. Whenever I want to watch gameplay I always go to them because their freaking awesome Youtubers. This is a really cool game, but not for people who don’t like horror games or jump scares. I hope you all enjoy it!

Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Source: thevitalounge.net

I really love the Corpse Party series from the manga all the way to all of the video games they made. Corpse Party has been getting more and more popular over the years because of the incredible horror/mystery surrounding it. This one was made by Makoto Kedōin and developed by Team GrisGris. For those of you who don’t know what Corpse Party is about; it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to perform the Sachiko Forever Charm which is said to anyone who performs the charm will be together forever. Unfortunately, right after they perform the ritual an earthquake starts shaking the entire school and not long after they find themselves in an entirely different school filled with tortured souls and killer ghosts.

It’s a pretty cool show and I recommend anyone who likes horror or mystery to watch it. Just don’t get too attached to any of the characters…….they might not live too long.

 

The latest Corpse Party game is called Corpse Party Blood Drive and I already got freaked out by it by playing the first five minutes of it. You guys may not know it, but I tend to stay away from horror games just because I don’t like jump scares all that much. I will play them from time to time, but only if I think I can handle it. Corpse Party was the exception because I like the series so much. I thought it was going to be like the previous where there’s mostly talking and you have to move here and there to find stuff to move on.

Boy, was I way off with this one. .

The previous games is just like I said before they mostly talk and find stuff while avoiding ghosts, but it wasn’t that scary. They completely changed the game with this one though. In this game, after all the crap happened in the other ones and they finally escaped the school. It turns out that dark powers of the school were becoming so strong that they didn’t even need to drag all the way to the school after you performed the charm to torment or kill you. If you did it in the real world, your horrible death was pretty much guaranteed to happen. Also, Ayumi stupidly goes back to Heavenly Host after a strange boy tells her that the curse has expanded and she is the only one that can stop it. Again I thought it was a stupid move to go back at all. First off, you’re taking the advice of a complete stranger that seems to know all about you.(creeper alert!) Then, she decides it would be perfectly fine to right back after she just back from there by her fucking self!!! Her stupidity meter went up the freaking charts when she decided to do that.

During that part before she was about to go, I thought it would give me an option or something but that didn’t happen. So, I had to watch make her do these things while I shook my head at her and called her a selfish dumbass. Also, theirs a lot more of the adventure feature in this game and a lot more running away from ghosts, you just don’t know when their going to show up and start chasing you all over the place!

 

I’m not going to tell you how this game ends, but a lot of epic and crazy shit happens in this game. So, if you don’t mind a nice little horror game to pass the time then by all means play it and see how you like it.

Side Note: To all of my beloved readers/followers who I appreciate for continuing for reading my blogs, I would like to know if theirs anything you would like for me to talk about or even improve on to make this better for you guys. I can handle all kinds of criticism so give me your best shot!  🙂

Life is Strange

Source: gamingbolt.com

When I first saw this game I was a little hesitant to play it to tell you the truth, but then I said to myself ‘what the heck I’ll give it try’. Looking back, I am so glad that I bought this game and brought it back home with me, so now I was mentally kicking myself because I almost didn’t buy it that day. This game was created by Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix and it revolves around a girl named Max who goes through the strangest things during this entire game.

The game already starts out very weird and mysterious because she wakes up in the middle of a storm just in time to see her hometown about to get destroyed by a massive monster tornado. But, right after her supposed ‘vision’ of the future, she suddenly gains the power of controlling time. How does she get that power?

I really don’t know. I was wondering during this whole game how out of every character that was in here, why was she the only one that gained that power? It looks to me that it will always be a mystery and all we can do is speculate and guess why and how. I just wish they would have given us a hint of some sort during the game, so we wouldn’t be so confused now. Out of everything that was put into the game, that one story detail was the only bad thing that I could point out.

The graphics were excellent and the gameplay. This is another what I like to call movie video game but with a lot more input from the player this time than the previous ones I’ve played if you ask me. This game had a bit of the usual but added a hint of a puzzle/hidden object parts to it, too. So, we had a lot more to play with in this one.

If I had to give this game a rating then I would give it a 4.5/5. Like I’ve said before it was really good and there are many ways to play this game with multiple outcomes that just want you to go back and play it again. I’m not going to go into detail about the story for you guys, since I don’t want to spoil it for you but just know there is a lot of drama in this and it will definitely make you cry. I would recommend this game to pretty much everyone that loves a good storyline and is looking for a nice way to pass the time.

Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright?

I picked up this game mostly because I’ve been playing a lot of Ace Attorney games recently plus I’ve been really curious about what Professor Layton games are all about, even though, I’ve never played any of those. Basically, I was killing two birds with one stone. This Nintendo game was developed by Level 5 and Capcom and the storyline behind it is really interesting. Its about two different people getting sucked into a fantasy world called Labyrinthia.

In this game, the two work together to solve the magical world’s mysteries and hidden secrets. This is where I kind of got confused because the title of the game obviously says Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, right? So, how come their working together on this instead of being bitter rivals? I have two ideas of why they chose this title. Its because during the entire game we switch out between the main characters stories during a certain parts of the game, so it kind of felt like they were competing to see which character the player liked playing the most. Also, at the end the two are finally duking it out in the last trial (sorry if I spoiled that for anyone) which is they named the game this way.

Personally, I liked playing as Phoenix Wright the most and I’ve learned through this game that I’m not much of a puzzle solver. Sure, I solved a couple of them with no help but most of them I had to use a lot of hint coins to solve them. Hint coins are just what their called; if you find a coin in the game then you can use it to help you solve a puzzle. The only problem with this is that when you activate the coins the hint is something that you already figured out which frustrated me to no end. I liked using them during trials though when I felt like I’ve done everything possible to figure out the contradiction. Also, I liked all the anime cut scenes that they put into it. Who doesn’t enjoy a good anime cut scene?

During this whole game, I though the cat named Eve was totally evil. The whole time I thought the cat was special and way too smart for its own good. In the end I was right and wrong and I’m not going to tell you how or why, your going to have to go play it for yourself to why I say so. If your a lover of puzzles or solving crazy trials, then you’ll love this game and its wacky characters. It’ll definitely challenge your brain a bit.

Until Dawn

 

VG247.comIf you’ve read my last post then you saw that I briefly mentioned the game ‘ Until Dawn’. This game was made by Supermassive Games and produced by Sony Computer Entertainment. Ah, Sony you got to love them. Anyway, this is a survival horror game that revolves around this group of teenagers taking a vacation in a snowy cabin. They were all enjoying themselves until they decided to be cruel and thought it would be funny to prank one of the girls, Hannah, right in front of the guy she has a crush on. Devastated, she runs into the woods in the middle of a blizzard (because that’s the perfect place to run to when you want to be alone and cry) where soon her sister, Beth, tries to follow her.

The two sister are never seen again.

GameGuides.comIn the beginning you see a hint where their could be a monster in the woods, but you’re not so sure. A year goes by and the older brother of the two sisters, Josh, invites everyone to come back on the anniversary of their deaths because he says it will help everyone get some closure. Everything goes downhill from there.

If it was me in this game, I would have never gone back to that place. I would have just gone and seen a therapist or something for a couple of weeks and just be done with it. I would never go back to the place my friends died in a creepy freaking cabin, no doubt. Plus the bodies were never found even when everyone did a complete search of the mountain. I would be way to paranoid to go to a place like that, but that’s me. I don’t know about you guys.

This is what I call a video game movie where you watch most of it and you just make a quick decision here or there. The reason I liked this game is because you never know what is going to pop out at you and scare the crap out of you. Every decision you make decides who lives and who dies and let me tell you, its kind of hard keeping everyone alive but it is possible. Also, there are different endings every time you start over and change something from before.

The characters were very diverse and if I had to pick who I liked the most and who I hated the most I would say I liked Sam the most because she kicked ass in the game and in a towel no less! You ever tried defending yourself or running in a towel without letting it fall? I haven’t, but that shit don’t easy. The person I hated the most was……a tie. Between Emily and Jessica, they were both complete bitches in the story and I can’t decide who I hated more. Anyways, this game is super easy to play, you just have to be quick with the buttons or you won’t last long. Also, this game is not for people who don’t enjoy a good scary movie. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

Brothers: The Tale of Two Sons

Brothers
Source: Boxchatter.wordpress.com

 

Warning: May Contain Spoilers!!

This game was created by Starbreeze Studios and I have to say this was a really unique and really fun game to play. The story revolves around two brothers, if you couldn’t guess from the title, who realize that their father is dying and the only way to save him is to travel across the land and find the water of life. Naia, the older brother and Naiee, the younger brother set out immediately to go find it.

What I find funny is that they never speak English in this game. They keep saying weird random words that make no sense to me. It kind of reminded me of when I played the Sims and you could never understand them. Even though, you couldn’t understand a word of what they were saying; they had such detailed body language that you could pretty much guess what they were talking about.

The story would suck you right in and before you know it your already done with the game. So far that was the only flaw I could see in the game. It literally took me 4 hours to beat the game, maybe even 3 if I didn’t die so much. The game was so easy to play that I actually thought it was impossible to die, so to test it out I died on purpose on one of the chapters, just to see if I could. The one thing that really popped out at me which made the game so unique and special were the controls. Instead, of controlling the brothers one at a time and switching them out whenever the need arises, you actually end up controlling them AT THE SAME TIME! That’s right I said it, at the same time with the same controller.

It’s because of this that I’m not sure if this is a good beginner game or not. It might be good for gamers who’ve played a game or 2, but because of how different the controls are for this game it might end up confusing you at first. It really does take some getting used to; but eventually you’ll get used to it. Also, I would like to mention that there are a lot of ‘What the fuck?!’ type moments in the game. Like for me, what got me angry was what happened with the spider lady and the twist at the end. As the credits came up I didn’t know if I should feel happy, sad or angry. It just made me think that maybe if I go back in the game then the ending would change……sadly it did not.

It was like you were playing inside of a movie but it’s not like games like Until Dawn( which I think I haven’t talked about yet) where you would watch a lot of the video game like a movie than make a decision here or there. Your actions decide how fast this game’s story is going to move along. Also, with all the different puzzles and creatures in the game, it really keeps your mind on its toes. I do believe that anyone playing this game will agree that, even though, it was kind of short it was a wonderful game to play.

Psychic Detective Yakumo

Source: http://www.alquimistacu.blogspot.com

This dark and mysterious anime was created by Manabu Kaminaga. This show mostly centers itself around Yakumo and his new (even if he never says it) friend, Haruka. Haruka was a client in the beginning, but gained a crush for the good-looking teen detective and decided to help him on his investigations. We all know why she’s really there. She’s hoping to get close enough to him to see if they could be more than friends/co-workers.

 

From watching it, she might have a shot since they seem to be getting closer and closer, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. There is a reason why he’s single and has to do with his abilities and his cold shoulder towards living human beings. That’s right, folks! Yakumo’s secret ability is being able to see the dead with his cursed red-eye.

Personally, I love his red-eye I think its cool looking, but in this story his eye is scary to others. So much that people used to shun him as a child, sad I know. Later in the years, he decides to use his ability for profit and becomes a detective. People think he’s psychic though because he’s always right, but in reality he’s getting help from the dead. They usually call on him for cold or unusual cases that can’t be explained.

I really liked watching this anime especially when they decided to add the romance factor into it. Yakumo may never say it or show it, but I think he’s really grateful for the people who hang around him, even though, he’s grumpy all the time. Except for his dad, he can go away and no one would miss him. In this entire story, he tries to make Yakumo’s life a living hell and for the longest time, I couldn’t understand why. Why would you do these things to your own son? Maybe to prove a point?

If you haven’t watched it yet, just know that everything does become clear in the end. Except knowing if Yakumo and Haruka are going to end up together. That one is left to your imagination. I end up liking and not liking Haruka…..why? Because of how she acts in this show. I’m not saying she was a girly girl or anything like that, but I felt like she joined the team just because Yakumo’s hot and mysterious. But, there are times that she acts like a true friend and is there to support him in his time of need.

I don’t how you guys feel, but that’s how I feel about her. Anyway, this is also a manga which is equally as good and if you like dark stuff, mystery and seeing dead people then this is for you. I hope you all love it as much as I did.

Thanks for Reading!

The Earl and The Fairy

This manga is about a girl in the 19th century who is a fairy doctor. A fairy doctor’s job is to communicate with fairies and solve their problems or solve the problems that a fairy is causing a human. This fairy doctor is named Lydia and she took over this job after her mother died.

Business wise I would say she isn’t doing so good right now. She doesn’t get a lot of cases since now fairy doctors are super rare to find and most people don’t believe in fairies. The people around her all think she’s crazy because they always find her talking to herself when really talking to a fairy. Most of the time she’s talking to a fairy named Nico who takes the form of a cat.

Later. Lydia decides to visit her father in London when she ends getting kidnapped……..twice.

The first time was by a man named Mr.Huskley who tricked her into thinking that her father sent him. Then, got tricked and kidnapped again by a guy named Edgar who makes her think that he is a prisoner and needs her help in escaping. They do escape and Edgar reveals to her that he is an Earl and that he is the descendant of the Blue Knight King.

The Blue Knight King is a guy who lived a long time ago and legend says that he ruled a land where fairies lived. He vanished one day, but left behind a treasure sword that was for his family. Edgar claims that sword was recently stolen from his family and that he needs her help in finding it.

Lydia is suspicious of him and who can blame her. Edgar fakes being a prisoner and says he’s an Earl and now he wants her to help him just like that. Soon though, she realizes that she doesn’t have much of a choice. This guy is like a gangster disguised as a handsome prince and if she won’t help him, then the chances of her living are quite slim.

This a really good story. but theirs one thing I’m confused about. Most people in this manga can’t see, hear nor believe in fairies but does Edgar have the ability to see and hear them. I say this because in the beginning he mentions the cat, but when he catches Lydia talking to Nico, he says he can’t see him.

A couple times later its the same thing over and over. So, can he see him or not? Is he gaining the ability to see or something? Its really confusing. I kind of felt like I was watching Family guy a little bit. You know when Stewie talks all the time but no one notices. But, a few episodes later they comment on what he just said making it seem like their just ignoring him. That’s how I felt I can’t tell if he has the ability to see fairies or not. If he does have the ability then is he just ignoring Nico?

That for me is a mystery and I think theirs more to Edgar’s past than he’s letting on. For example, who is this Prince Character that he keeps talking about? And what did he do to him. I’m waiting for him to appear and have a showdown with Edgar.

Unfortunately, this manga is not complete and I do not when it will be. But, like I always say if you don’t mind it then go and read this mysterious and magical story of The Earl and The Fairy.
