It turns out I completely forgot to do a Monthly Update for January! However, I think most of what I had to say was covered in the Recap Post.
First of all, I have to apologize for my lack of activity. This month has been a wild ride. I had to struggle with Jury Duty for the first two weeks (thankfully, I managed to dodge my patriotic duty this time around by explaining my circumstances). And this past week I’ve been struggling with new duties for which I am now suddenly responsible.
That’s quite enough Johns, however, especially considering how so many men are named as such. One of my cousins was dubbed with the aforementioned name at birth, in fact.
Currently I’m re-playing Kindred Spirits on the Roof. I had played through the visual novel a few months before I started this blog in 2016, but I had put off actually reviewing the well-regarded yuri gameu until I was uncertain of my memories regarding how I felt about the characters and so on.
I’m quite glad I decided to experience this visual novel again because my thoughts on the characters as a 23 year-old college kid are much different compared to that of the current me, a 26 year-old office drone.
So a lot of my time has been dedicated towards that particularly notorious visual novel. I’ll have to tackle the additional DLC related to the game, too, which will certainly delay the upcoming review…
In other news, there are other visual novels I’m currently tackling (or planning to at least hug), as well. Maybe one of these days I’ll add a widget to the side where I mention the games I’m playing through at the moment.
I hope to talk more about yuri manga, but right now writing about seasonal anime in particular holds little interest for me. Which is a bit of a shame considering my resolution to write more seasonal anime content as mentioned in last month’s post. Reading a few select takes on seasonal anime is more than enough for me for now.
Furthermore, as also stated last month, I’m trying to focus more on visual novels for better or for worse. I feel as if a lot more people are quicker to embrace anime (well, there are a few individuals who depise anime as a whole, but we can’t do anything about them really) whereas visual novels are a bit of a harder sell. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself by pretending to be a patron saint to indie visual novel developers, haha…
As usual, I’m super far behind on everyone’s content. Maybe I can find some time this week to rectify that, ugh.
Thank you for reading.
