I know I said I was going to review this game first, but I was having so much fun translating every single line that I threw myself headfirst into this raging inferno. The kickstarter to localize this game may have tanked, but I like this game far too much to leave it in the ditch. I’ll be translating every route and every chapter. Enjoy!

2019 was a good year for games, although I have yet to play the majority of them. Especially regarding otoge. The good news is that I have a ton of titles to play this year though! My biggest hurdle was the costs of studying abroad I had to scrounge together for 2020. It was a close call. My health deteriorated so badly my doctor told me to stop working because it would cause another flare up. After getting my next paycheck, I had to explain the situation to my boss. She was so incredibly understanding but I nearly broke down and cried in front of her. That job was all I had. So I sold most of my possessions, applied to every scholarship available and started doing freelance work. And I made it. If I clear the next application process, I’ll be on my way to studying abroad! That’s not to say I didn’t buy anything because I most definitely did. I had to be selective though. My family was also unbelievably sweet, getting me a copy of Death Stranding and my brother even got me Pokemon Sword for Christmas. In the process of culling what I had, I focused on my backlog. Most of what I played were games I received as gifts or were from said backlog. The rest were purchases made while I was working and didn’t have to worry about my finances until this crap happened.
