Beyond the Future: Fix the Time Arrows

September 25th, 2011

Beyond the Future
That’s the name of the newest game from 5pb and Rejet, announced for release December 1 on the PSP AND PS3!

The heroine Lilith is training to be a priest in the small northern town of Dordorn. Raised in the temple, she’s a little naive, but bright, honest and hard-working. She uses a staff called the i-scepter.

One day she encounters Nayuta and Kirite, and she starts out on a new path. Not too much is clear about the plot except that it’s about saving the world.
Krite Asturias (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) A cool samurai who uses a longsword that’s the same height as him, and he’s from Savilla. He doesn’t show emotion much and doesn’t like socializing much, but meeting Lilith causes him to change.

Nayuta Roen (CV: Fujiwara Yuuki)

Born and raised in Ingrid, he’s the straightforward Captain of the White Lily Knights, protecting the temples and law of the city. In addition to being an expert at the spear, he’s also good at using healing and protective magic. Seeing Lilith, who’s still learning, he tends to be a little harsh with her.

Soo Majiku (CV: Yoshino Hiroyuki)

A skilled fighter from Dainus who loves freedom. He hates feeling restricted and isn’t very good at social niceties, so he’s often scolded by Nayuta.

Nate Suruya (CV: Masuda Toshiki)

A werewolf thief who uses a bow from the woods near Midvan, he looks young but is actually the oldest of the whole group.

Nico Velvetnein (CV: Kishio Daisuke)

A magician born in Melrond who calls himself a sage. He’s willing to do almost anything for knowledge, and joins Lilith’s party because he’s interested in ‘saving the world’.

Camus Tetra Porte (CV: Suzuki Yuuto)
A small fairy who’s been Lilith’s best friend since she was small. Usually he’s bright and cheerful, but he sometimes shows a perspective that has many years of experience behind it. He’s very protective of Lilith. He can use nature spirits.

Going to Japan!

September 14th, 2011

I’m working on a post for Beyond the Future, but I’m being lazy and thought I’d post about my upcoming trip to Japan first!

Next month I’m going for over 2 weeks, and besides it being pretty lengthy, I haven’t been there for at least firve years, so I’m extremely excited!
I will be doing a lot of sightseeing, but also have a whole week in Tokyo where I plan to shop shop shop for otome stuff. I have been poring over this shopping guide for months, and am actually staying for a few days very near to Otome Road.
I’m making up a shopping list, and have held back from buying many games all this year (though I couldn’t resist getting Musketeer!), and I am ready to go on a bit of a binge once I get there! In addition to whatever new games have come out (pretty much anything I can find that I don’t have yet, like Waga Ichizoku) I’m also planning for several fandisk purchases that I’ve been resisting, like Lucian Bee’s, Xechs, Wand of Fortune, Hiiro no Kakera 4, Clover no Kuni no Alice, and a huge number of PC games which we just can’t order here (without an enormous expense and hassle – I think I’d probably have to pay about 3 times the retail price to get one here), and there are lots of doujin (indie) games as well. I also can’t wait to see what merchandise I can find – I know there’s tons for Hakuouki, but I’m looking to seeing what else is available. And let’s not forget drama CDs! I never buy them here, because they are so expensive, but I think I might get some there…last but not least, there are manga and doujinshi. I’m not planning on getting too much manga, as I don’t follow many series anymore. Here’s my shortlist:

As for doujinshi, well I don’t keep up at all with circles or anything, so I’ll probably just spend several hours at Mandarake and get whatever catches my eye – especially anything based on otome games. I know there’s a bunch for Harutoki, and I’m positive there are lots for Hakuouki, but other than that I don’t know how easy/difficult it will be finding stuff. I’ve seen covers of VitaminX doujinshi and but who knows how rare it is. If anyone has recommendations for doujinshi please let me know!
So, there you go, my trip to Japan in terms of shopping. Three weeks, four days, and counting!
