Frequently Asked Questions

Since I appear to get a few similar questions from time to time I figured a general blog FAQ would be easier. With this in mind, anything asked in comments that’s already in this faq will either be ignored or considered as spam and deleted.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU COMMENT: If you don’t like what I write, just close the browser and go elsewhere. No one is forcing you to read this blog and by no means is my opinion the gospel truth. It’s simply what it is: my personal opinion on the games I play. I am not paid to do this, I do this as a hobby and therefore by no means is this a professional review blog that represents anything. Not everyone will agree with what I write and that’s okay!

1. Where can I find the walkthrough for game _____ ?
Google the game name + the word 攻略.

2. How do I get a custom icon in my avatar when I comment on this blog?
You need to register at Gravatar, upload a custom image and when you type in your comment use the email address you registered your gravatar with. Alternatively if you register a account you can edit your avatar through that as well as it’s connected with Gravatar.

3. Where can I buy/import Japanese otome games?
Check out my shopping guide.

4. Do you plan to review ________ ?
Due to a massive otome game burnout, I’m trying to be more picky and choosey with what I sit through. With that in mind, I can’t stand games that abuse the heroine, games about war, and old timey 和風 games because they tend to use terms that fly over my head. As far as what I DO like are fairy tales, sci-fi, school life or work life type games. Some fantasy stuff is alright too if the story is decent.  Once in a while I may review a galge if I liked the anime it was based on or I heard good things about it. To be honest though, I would rather just play a good JRPG these days as otome games are basically a dying genre in Japan right now.

5. I’m an indie game developer and I’d like you to review my commercial otome game. 
At this time I no longer accept requests to review fanmade games. Sorry I don’t really have the time for this anymore!

6. Are Japanese Switch games region free?
Yes you can buy physical or digital copy and play them on either your English or Japanese account. Please note however you will need a Japanese account to access the Japanese e-shop and you will need to buy prepaid e-shop Japan cards as they do not accept foreign credit cards.

7. How come I cannot comment on some old posts?
I have the blog set to automatically close comments after 90 days to avoid excessive spam.
