2018 in Review

December 31, 2018 at 11:55 pm | Posted in Special | 2 Comments


Happy New Year! Usually I post this “gaming summary” during the start of the year wherein I list and talk about the games I played the previous year. That said I was able to finish only 4 games (it would’ve been five but I got too lazy to finish 7’Scarlet zz) during 2018 so I decided to make this a year review instead.

Let’s start with the games I finished and what I remember about them:

KLAP!! ~Kind Love and Punish~
“Otomate tries dangerous things”


I’m pretty sure I enjoyed this game and even cried in at least two routes, but the choukyou mini games are still the best ww I mean, who does doesn’t want to hear Kaji and Tachi being S/Ms???

Beast and Princess


Oh man, this game is so damn forgettable I actually already forgot what it’s about except for the fact that Sakurai’s character was the only route that matters. Sorry, I really think this game never happened.

Code:Realize ~Hakugin no Kiseki~
“Best way to conclude Code:Realize”


This would’ve been the best game to play during Christmas season but I played it in the middle of the year ww. It’s a nice closure to the Code:Realize series, and I’m crossing fingers they don’t make a fourth game anymore ;;w;;

Collar×Malice -Unlimited-


BOIII I was so excited for this game and I’m so happy with every aspect it. I don’t know where to start but I say IT’S REALLY GOOOOOD.

And lmao I can’t even do a “top three games of the year” because I only played four games. How much sadder can my year in otome gaming get.

Best boy of the year? With two new titles, I don’t think I can name a new otoge character as best boy of the year. I do have a couple of real men I can name as my best boys of 2018 though; I’ll talk about them in a few.

2018 Highlights

Looking back to 2017 throwback post, in 2017, I actually finished 15 games, travelled to Japan, and saw two seiyuus in person. That’s quite a big year compared to my 2018, because I finished only four games, didn’t go anywhere, and was not able to attend CosMania 2018 to meet Sawashiro Chihari and Takeuchi Shunsuke. I also posted about quitting otome gaming since everything’s going to Nintendo Switch now and as a poor med student, I have no money, time, and energy to invest in a new platform.

All that said, it may sound like a sad year in my otome gaming, but there are a lot of new things that made my 2018 a fruitful year. I learned and I am learning lots of new things, I made new friends, and -surprise-, I got into a new… fandom that I plan to follow from now on.

If you’re following me on twitter, you may notice I’ve been tweeting and retweeting about BTS (I apologize to those who followed me for otoge content ww), and I’ve been so in love with the group since December 2, 2018. Yep, you read that right: I am officially an ARMY and I swear it is best thing that happened to me in 2018. I could talk lots about how beautiful BTS music is and how that exact music can change lives (I’m not kidding; listen to Magic Shop and be inspired to LOVE YOURSELF), but I’ll save that talking for another post.


2019 Gaming Plans

For 2019, I don’t want to plan anything about otome gaming as I just want to play at my own pace–when I’m in the mood. I’ll get back to 7’Scarlet someday, I just don’t know when I’ll be in the mood enough to play it ww.

I really have no definite plans except for focus on med school and use BTS songs as study music ww (for real though, I am already doing this), but I do want to study some Korean during my next break. We’ll see how far I’ll get with the language at the end of 2019.

  1. Happy New Year!!
    Same, I barely had any otoge to finish this year it was kind of depressing :/
    Unfortunately, Otomate knows no limits when it comes to making money so CR may yet have another game. I’m still super excited to see how they localized this last one though.

    • I’ll probably play lesser this year aahahaha or not at all, we’ll see what happens.
      Hmmm if it’s a forth C:R game I’m guessing it’ll be another Amnesia World 😞
