Dangan Ronpa – Playthrough

I’m going to update this post occasionally if I have progressed through the game (usually in a week to Beat it. I haven’t mentioned any promise to Complete it yet).

Since I’m really hyped up for Dangan Ronpa (so much that it freaked me out). I’m playing it today (as the English fans-translation came out over here from Zetsubou TLC and we really need to thank a bunch because they translated the whole thing.) Whoops. I’m still through Chapter 1 and hasn’t finished it yet, but so far, it is very enjoyable.

Especially if you like 999 (NDS Game). Dangan Ronpa is the exact copy (not exactly either though, similar) of that game, and if you understand how to navigate through 999, I could assume you’ll be good at playing Danganronpa.

Umm I haven’t gone through the puzzles yet so hehe. 

Since this is a playthrough, it may be full of spoilers. And some walkthrough. Hehe. But I’m a casual gamer, so don’t really expect me to make a full walkthrough.

And playing Danganronpa is also like tge mix of Persona 4 (yeah, P4, or P3 for specifics), and Persona 2 dungeon-walking, and 999 puzzles / investigation mode.

So let’s just go on.

Alice’s Guide to Play Japanese Region-Locked Apps in Android

I don’t really know if it GENERALLY works though. (refer to Bu-Bu San’s Post in OH), but I have made some Japanese restricted / region locked applications and games were played in my Android. Oh well, just … don’t ask me if it doesn’t really work, since there are actually a lot of ways for you to make your Android works on the games. I don’t really know about mobage though.

I’ve heard some friends of mine can’t play Tokimeki Restaurant because their Google Play Store won’t allow them to download it. So I use this way and it works.

My ways are:

  1. Download APK Downloader. This is only available for Chrome. Follow the instruction on the link.
  2. *If you have downloaded the .CRX file (Chrome Extension file) but is not installed yet, type on the address: chrome://extensions and drag your .CRX file to the page.
  3. Afterward, if you are done with it, you should have seen this on your Google Play page. tokimemo
  4. Afterward, click that icon I circled and it will let the app be downloaded to your PC.
  5. Download AirDroid in your Android. It is a very useful application whether you don’t use it for this purpose or not.
  6. After you have installed it, connect your PC to your WiFi (with your Android is connected to the same WiFi as well)
  7. Then, see on your Android (1): It has the IP Address. Type that IP in your Chrome and it’ll look like this (2):posu1 posu
  8. Afterward, your Android will receive this message:
    posu2
  9. Accept it, and your PC will connect with your Android.
  10. Afterward, see the AirDroid page on your Chrome and click ‘Apps’.
  11. Then, click ‘Install Apps’.posu3
  12. Choose your APK that you want to install.posu4

Hope that somebody will be helped by this post. Just want to share what I can do as an otome games fans. I’ll try to answer any question if you like to.

Rants: College Life soon starts.

Skip this post if you don’t want to read my rantings, but I really need to write it out since I’m really stressed. Though, I’m more than thank you if you could share your thoughts and response, since I’m really confused with my current situation.

This post is about my rantings regarding my sudden enrollment to a prestigious college near my new house. Which to my dismay, might be the reason for why I’m feeling bitter about leaving my old school and friends, and what sort of memories that I’ve scattered in the community. And thinking about living up in the college dorm and forced to be in a place where rich people with some inferior motive to bully a person like me, is just not it. Read more of this post

Alice’s Guide to Otome Gaming

The updates about this blog will be thoroughly describe below. Well, since a blog containing fanfictions and art reviews only is pretty boring for me, I’ll upgrade it into reviews and some noob-ish articles that are written by me. Humbly share it to everyone since I’m a newbie, and even a slight feedback is very nice.

Okay let’s get back to the topic.

This is just what I thought, and what I would like to share to everyone who enjoys otome-games, or is just new to this fandom / how this works. I’m no expert or what sort, but I’ve observed the fandom and otome-games for over a year, so I’m thinking that it might be a good idea to spread otome-games (even though my blog is small, but by sharing this post to social networks, it might grow bigger).

So yes, I’m trying to make an article regarding ‘otome-games’, ‘otomege’, ‘how it kinda works inside of the production’, and also the ‘fandom’. Yes, you could call me a boring manic for this, but I just can’t help myself.

Beware that some of the things that are written here are from my observation, added some additional points and informations around wiki and the internet community. Credits and sources are below. Please don’t flame me because of my wrong usage of terms; you may corrected me in the comments and I’ll be more than glad to edit this post and credit the editings for you.

After all, who believes in the old myth of an Eden that is guarded by thousand of mythical beings existed inside of the Labyrinth in this modern time? Of course, it is not you six, is it?”

Rated: 15+ PG.
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Angst, Adventure, Mystery.
Description:

Distorted Maze is a story about six teenagers who are bound to explore and travel a certain magical ‘Labyrinth’ that existed in a rural and forbidden forest in Japan. They were bound with blood to keep coming again and venture the labyrinth until they could grasp the ‘hidden treasure’ inside.

This story is set in the modern future time where mere humans do not believe in magic, and could only rely on the power of skeptical science, and proof. While they do, slowly the Labyrinth which changes all the time grows and until the time comes where it swallows the world into a whole new Labyrinth, the teenagers need to complete their purpose there as they are racing against time.

Main Characters: 

  • Yoshida Hanamaru (吉田 花丸)
  • Age: 16 (Found the existence of the Labyrinth at the age of 10)

A pink-dyed haired girl whose grandparents were monks in a very old temple in a rural area in Japan who guarded the forbidden forest that had the secret labyrinth for hundred years. The first time she went to the temple was because of the divorcement of her mother and father. Afterward, she stayed there with her grandfather and grandmother. A year after, her father died because of nuclear explosion in his workplace, and months after, she was living with her mother who was working as a local prostitute ever since.

She was a shy girl who was questionably very athletic and flexible. Although she stared at classic literature, she was pretty bad at mathematics. Her childhood friend is Ryuuji, and she clings and relied on him while she was staying in the village and exploring the labyrinth. Somehow glued to Kikou even though he gave her a cold shoulder.

  • Kikou (キコ)
  • Age: Unknown

A boy who had strange dirty blond hair and blue eyes. He was taller than an average boy in the village, and somehow older at least a year or two than Hana. He was as mysterious as his name implied, and he did not express any various expression toward the girl. He always appeared on windy days on the roof of the wrecked temple inside of the entrance of the labyrinth.

  • Ryuuji Sasaki (龍二 佐々木)
  • Age: 18 (Found the existence of the Labyrinth at the age of 10)

Ryuuji, or Ryuu for short, is childhood best friend of Hana who is a jack of all tribes. He has sharp black eyes, and unusual teal hair. As much as he wanted to be, he is a dense person who is insensitive to all of the issues surrounding him. Despite being one of the brains that work inside of the group that exploring the Labyrinth, he is a good combatant, but with low defense.

He is very talented at everything, but despite all that, he respected Hana as the one who is more talented than he is. He doesn’t really like Kikou.

  • Minamoto Miu (源 みゅう)
  • Age: 17 (Found the existence of the Labyrinth at the age of 16)

Miu is a humble girl that is older than most of the other cast. But her appearance gives off the younger feel more than Elaine or Hana do, however. She is the first one who manage to realize the danger that might lie inside of the labyrinth other than Kikou and she is always be the one who were cautious about everything. She is apparently a close internet friend of Ryuuji.

She stayed in an all-girl college dorm alone and knew about Ryuuji in internet forum. She had parents who got divorced for mysterious reason.

  • Joe Weissman
  • Age: 18 (Found the existence of the Labyrinth at the age of 18)

A playboy from America who got into the mess of the labyrinth while he was searching ancient books from his grandfather’s bookshelves. He joined the gang as soon as he found the dead pigeon inside of room one. Unlike the others, he was pretty ordinary excluding his habitual gibe that makes the mood inside of the group. He is naturally a jock.

  • Elaine McDowell
  • Age: 15

The youngest member amongst all six. She is the last one to join the cast and head straight into the labyrinth. Even though she is the youngest, she is always the one who takes the first initiative. She joined the crew because she wanted to repay the debt she had inside the labyrinth.

Notes: 

This is just an individual project of mine. Made because I am inspired of something, and somehow I won’t stop thinking about it. Certainly I will try to update this story as fast as possible with some crappy images that I have drawn by myself, but surely, it won’t blind your eyes and hopefully, it could make you like this story more than I do.

Welcome to The Thirteenth Hour

Where procrastination might be a mundane thing to encounter, and endless pit of fictions and art may await you in your slumber.

Note:

Still, I welcome you to this blog. Might be used for a draft blog where I will keep my art and fictions over here, or simply to be just a place to exhibit my works to the world. Even perhaps, posting some of my life rantings inside of the ‘Read More’ brackets.

I do know that internet readers are not mostly fond of private rants. So I would.

Named Thirteenth Hour, since I believe of second chances and the magic of procrastination.

As the sole administrator of this tiny, little blog, I welcome you to enjoy your patronage here and toward the end of this tiny blog might end.

Who knows about a future anyway?
