  2. Thoughts on Danganronpa 2

    by , 04-25-2016 at 07:49 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Yep, this again. Writing this was actually quite fun last time, so why not do it again? I'd adopt it as a regular thing for more visual novels but there wouldn't be much point to it, would there.

    The rest of this post contains spoilers for the entirety of both Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.

    (SPOILER)

    The story begins as our new protagonist, Hajime Hinata, enters Hope's Peak Academy for the first time as a freshman. Unfortunately that's where his memory cuts off and the next thing he remembers is entering a classroom where he finds his fellow classmates. 15 other "ultimates" chosen ...

  6. Character Appreciation: Monica Raybrandt



    Today I will be showing appreciation to Monica from Dark Cloud 2/Dark Chronicle. She is a Princess from the future who went back in time to kick some ass and take some names. Also mostly to rebuild destroyed origin points and bring hope to the future. She is 15 and uses swords and magic armbands as weapons.

  7. Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni First Impressions

    by , 04-12-2016 at 07:44 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)







    Well then.

    So finally I'll be reading this novel. If the title reminds you of a certain other novel, that's no coincidence, it's by the same author; Ryukishi07. Making this the last 07th Expansion novel I haven't read yet, so as you can probably imagine I'm very ...
  8. Character Appreciation: Lloyd Irving



    Haven't done a male character yet even though there are many great mans in video game land! Lloyd Irving is a character in Tales of Symphonia. He is a 17 year old human boy who was adopted by a dwarf. He fights with twin blades.



    Lloyd is initially portrayed as a slow, naive hero. Being adopted by a dwarf, he knows the dwarven laws by heart and really takes them... well ...

  10. Character Appreciation: Dlanor A. Knox

    by , 04-06-2016 at 03:58 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    I tried coming up with an Umineko character I could write a post like this about without spoiling anything. I failed; it's just not really possible. But I'll still try to be vague enough not to take anything major away.


    Umineko OST - JUSTICE

    Dlanor A. Knox is an antagonist in Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru. She's first introduced in Episode 5: End of the Golden Witch as the subordinate of Erika, who introduces ...
