  3. Finished my Must-Read List

    by , 03-29-2015 at 11:32 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Just a few hours ago I just finished Muv-Luv Alternative which means I'm through my Must-Read List of visual novels. It was a great three months. This doesn't mean I'll stop reading visual novels or updating this blog, but it is quite a milestone for me personally. I finally feel like, knowing the 'big boys' of this medium, I have enough context to compare and judge them at least somewhat fairly.

    This is the list of visual novels I've finished this year, in the order I read them in: ...

  5. That Muv-Luv Alternative Opening

    by , 03-24-2015 at 01:41 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    (Slight NSFW imagery primarily in the first 15 seconds)

    I don't know whether to love or hate it. On the one hand it makes me totally hyped up to keep reading and the song is quite catchy. It reminds me of Neon Genesis Evangelion's opening in a way.

    On the other hand THOSE smurfING SUITS. That kind of immersion-breaking fanservice was one of my biggest complaints with Muv-Luv Unlimited and to have them show up in the Alternative OP does not exactly make ...
  6. Muv-Luv (Extra + Unlimited) Review

    by , 03-23-2015 at 12:09 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Muv-Luv is a visual novel created by âge. It is the precursor to one of the most popular visual novels of all time, so to be as unbiased as possible I'm going to write this review before moving on to its successor.


    Takeru Shirogane is a typical highschool student who doesn't get very good grades and likes spending most of his free time either hanging out with his childhood friend Sumika Kagami, or playing ...

  9. Just Random Thoughts and Other Things

    *I think I've been getting much better at having a positive attitude. Aside from mildly ranting about subjects that annoy me here and there, along with letting a video game frustrate me to the point of giving my coffee table a good smack, I've been in a much happier place. Any curve ball that has been thrown my way be it at work or wherever I handled very well.

    *I've been sort of flirting with the idea of losing weight by eating better and/or working out. The problem is that when I ...
