Hi everyone! It has been six months since my last post and I believe many of you probably think I have stopped writing, which unfortunately almost becomes an actuality. Within this half a year time span, I have made several attempts to draft a new post and every single try ended in a contemplation of whether or not I had what it needed to continue writing on this blog. Lack of interest towards the newly published eroge, as I have gotten enough share of entertainment from reading LNs, is the most likely the biggest perpetrator to this dilemma. (Maybe I should do a LN review next time…)
Everything changes however when Lusterine make an announcement for their newest game, Kouyoku Senki ExS-Tia II. All the sudden, my interest for eroge is rekindled and I finally have something to look forward to. This in return supplies me with enough motivation to finally remove a game from my To-Review-List.
Really hyping for this one!
Illustrated by Inoino who is one of my favorite artist, Kouyoku Senki ExS-Tia was on my playlist ever since I learned about its existence. As a matter of fact, I had completed this game a few months ago when it first came out and planned to write a review soon after that. Regrettably, work became so busy that the only free time I managed to squeeze out of my schedule was predominantly made up of constantly interrupted waiting and traveling time. Nevertheless, not even once have I forgotten about Kouyoku Senki ExS-Tia as it has taken a special seat in my heart. For me, this game is a paragon of classic corruption games.
So without further ado, let us get started and I hope everyone will be able to enjoy their stay here, お手柔らかにお願いします。

I am really sorry for being inactive(シ_ _)シ, but I was just too busy with other activities. Actually, the truth is that I had written an “interesting” post, but I chickened out at the last minute and decided not to post it. I definitely don’t want Amaenboda to turn into a creepy blog (/ω＼). Perhaps, one day I may get around uploading that article, but that is a completely different story.
However, just like how I was planning to publish that post in the beginning but never made it in the end, this one is exactly the opposite. I did not plan to review this game, Taimanin Yukikaze 2 (対魔忍ユキカゼ2), until I finished it yesterday at two in the morning. I believe just from that sentence itself, you can tell that my response to this game is very positive. So without further ado, let us get started.
I hope everyone will be able to enjoy their stay here, お手柔らかにお願いします。

Just like fashion that keep on changing, so do エロゲ. Majority of you will probably disagree with me since I often heard people complaining about how エロゲ development has become stagnant and its market is dying. While it is true that there has not been any major change in gameplay and players’ expectation is ever increasing with each エロゲ masterpiece, in my opinion it is all a matter of perspective.
Look at it this way, western clothes(洋服) have remained pretty much the same for a very long time: one hole for inserting your head and two for inserting your arms. Despite of this, new fashions never stop emerging and there are always people out there who thirst for the newest wrinkles. We can take this same logic and apply it here, where fashions to western clothes is fetishes to エロゲ. In other word, it does not matter if the gameplay stays the same or if the story is not as good, but as long as the fetishes that decorate a game are still up to date, there will be people who are willing to buy it.
Fetish may sounds like a big word which usually comes with these images of hardcore S&M, Mind Break and Corruption. However, it can also refer to more subtle sexual/non-sexual preferences such as ツンデレ, 獣耳, 絶対領域, JK, etc. In fact, I remember when I took my first step into エロゲ world, many games have a ツンデレheroine because apparently it was the booming fetish at the time. ツンデレ was then slowly replaced by other デレ such as ヤンデレ and ダンデレ for a short while and they later gave way to the re-emerging of 妹 and the incoming of 男の娘.
Those bulges under their パンツ are very disturbing to me…
I am glad to see that the Aedes has finally posted something in a whileヘ(^_^ヘ)(ノ^_^)ノ. His newly published pure love article, Twin N’ Stuff, is exactly what I need to put a break in between my two corruption articles for too much good things can be a bad thing（￣ー￣）ニヤリ.
Putting aside whether you agree with me or not (that corruption is a good thing), I would like to thank those who have commented on the Introduction to Corruption (Part 1). Many of your comments have inspired and helped me to decide on what to write for this article, the second part of the introduction.
WARNING: Since the topic of this post is on corruption, naturally there will be HARDCORE NSFW pictures, usage of vulgar words and opinions that some people are not comfortable with. If you think you that will be unable to stomach what to come, I suggest you stop reading this article.
YOU HAVE BEEN STRONGLY WARNED!
Reason 4 to play a Corruption Game:
A Corruption Game allows you to see a story from a different PoV.
I especially like playing as a Demon Lord(魔王) or Prince of Darkness.
