Akihabara Experience

Unless for those of you who followed my twitter or were in the same skype room as me, many of you probably do not know that I was in Tokyo these past two months. I went there for educational purpose of studying Japanese Language, or at least that was what I told my parents. Although there was no untruth in my words, as probably many of you might have guess, I did have a hidden agenda which was no other than to visit the Otaku Holy Land, Akihabara.

Akihabara(秋葉原) which literal meaning is “Field of Autumn Leaves” and is also known as Akihabara Electric town. As the name suggested, this little town has anything related to electricity, may it be hardware or software. Beside electronic equipment stores, there are many other interesting shops such as manga and anime outlets, adult toys and video shops, maid cafes, etc.

Shukufuku no Kane no Oto wa, Sakura-iro no Kaze to Tomo ni

Hey all! Been a bit dead around here lately >____>. I know that Aedes is just lazy, but I have NO IDEA what Aqua is up to. Anyway, I actually finished Hatsuyuki Sakura something like a week ago. Unfortunately Aedes did a review on that like a week after it came out, which took away any thoughts of writing something about that. Btw, the game was great; as expected of Saga Planets.

Back on topic, I decided to go for a cute and funny slice of life game. Enjoy ^^

Shuuji lived with his musician father Yuuhei, but the family debt had gotten to the point where it was impossible for them to pay it off. They had prepared themselves to run away at a moment’s notice, but one day Shuuji’s grandfather Genzou appeared and wanted him to succeed the Ootori family line. Since the Ootori is a famous family which has great influence in many places, their debt would be fully paid off should he agree to Genzou’s request. Shuuji consented to it, but that was not the end of it. As a successor to the Ootori household, he must have a wife, so it was arranged that he be married to his cousin Maria. Of course, both of them opposed the engagement. Genzou told him that he should find himself a wife instead, but he only has one year to do so, otherwise the engagement will continue as planned. So begins Shuuji’s search for a bride at Minami-Sakuragaoka Gakuen.
