Thank you for reading my Sunday posts every week! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. I also hope your day will be filled with lots of laughs, good food and awesome presents! Also, please be sure to stay smart and NOT get behind the wheel if you plan on having “more than a few” celebratory drinks… Don’t become a “silly season” road death toll statistic!
December 2015, the dumping ground for PSV ports. The drought of decent (at least, in my opinion) games continues even into the Christmas season. Well, Christmas isn’t nearly as significant to the Japanese like it is to the Western world, so… but the bright side is that I’ll be able to save money. Maybe some of the numerous ports may interest you, which in my case is Getsuei no Kusari’s one.
From here on out, I’ll do my best to cover the doujin scene as well. Based on my poll results, it looks like there is notable interest in me doing so:

Blind Prism ~Rainy Season~ is the second release of doujin circle Ka*Kuu. It also is the second release in the Blind Prism series, though the website dictates that you don’t have the play the first game (Blind Prism ~Before Sweets~) in order to better enjoy ~Rainy Season~. From here on out, I’ll be referring to this game as just “Blind Prism”. The story is about the evolution of Kuronagi Mikoto and her overprotective older brother Wakazumi’s relationship. After Mikoto meets with the school nurse, Nikaidou Shinobu, Wakazumi and Mikoto’s relationship begins to change. Anyway, I got the download edition of Blind Prism from DL Site’s Girl’s Maniax section (some content is NSFW) here for 324 yen, encouraged by the positive reviews it had received. At roughly $3.25 AUS, I certainly wasn’t expecting things from it like I would with games by bigger companies, but I was still disappointed. While it isn’t an exceptionally bad game, it is far, far from good. I’ll be going into detail on why it ended up being such a mediocre game- in my humble opinion, of course.
