  1. Eleanor

    Thank for the post and merry Christmas!!! Ugh, very disappointed in the lack of Taisho x Alice updates. I doubt that it will be released this year, but I hope I’m wrong.

    • Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Eleanor! =D

      I’m very sorry for the delayed reply. >_<

      I hear that E2 plans on releasing their Taishou x Alice localisation around March 2017, which will likely come sooner than you might think! I've already made it brutally clear that I won't be supporting this, but when you do play it, I sincerely hope you enjoy the series!

      Thank you for reading and supporting my blog. I hope this continues in 2017 also! =)
