What in the….”HATOFUL BOYFRIEND”

I have recently come into possession of this game, and I must say, Oh good lord what the hell is this.

This Otome style dating simulation game centers around, if you couldn’t tell from the picture, yes, birds. You are a human girl in a school of all birds who are intelligent and seem to be the ruling race in this alternate world. You get to know all the different birds and build relationships with which every birdie you choose. Each character is unique and has their own story and quirks. At first it just seems that this game is like a normal dating sim, simple and fluff. However, there are odd little details here and there that point to something sinister and questionable.

You quickly get the feeling that there is more to this world you live in and begin to be flooded with questions. Why are the birds intelligent? Why do you live in a cave in the game? What the hell is up with the doctor?! There have been so many moments where I vocally shouted “WHAT?! I DON’T UNDERSTAND!” then proceeded to sit there and re-evaluate my life choices.

I won’t give you all the details of the game to leave some mystery. Plus I don’t think anyone can accurately convey the feel and oddity of this game.

Have you been so lucky or bored to play this game? What did you think about it? Which bird did you go after? Let me know about it in the comments!

Interesting Fashion Japan

Japan has a lot of interesting things and some of the modern fashion is definitely up there on the Weird list. I find some of the fashion trends cool and some others…a little questionable but hey it’s all an art in a way.

ganguro girls1

Ganguro is a trend that has been around for about two decades now. It involves very tan skin and bright makeup often being white and pastels making a noticeable contrast. Ganguro girls often bleach their hair to blond and platinum. My question is, do they really tan or is it a fake tan?

Harajuku and Visual Kei are mainly darker gothic looking fashions. Harajuku is a well known area in Japan that is said to be a center for modern youth. You see a lot of different styles and fashions and they are all very unique and interesting.  Visual Kei is the genre of bands or musicians that use a lot of flamboyant costumes and hairstyles when they perform. My all time favorite Visual Kei band that I got to meet a few years ago is called “Versailles Philharmonic Quintet ” in the U.S. . The aristocratic costumes and large hair with eerie jewelry definitely give a certain feel to watching them.


sweet lolita

There are many types of Lolita fashions ranging from the darker gothic Lolita to the cute sweet Lolita like the pic above. The style usually involves knee length frilly lacy dresses that poof out with the use of petticoats. The hair is done up in curls and bows and a host of various styles. There is a lot of frills all around with this style. I find it adorable >_<.
