Mitsu Aji Blood Volume2 Extra Chapter

Heyo!

Finally, I was able to finish the last chapter of Mitsu Aji Blood volume 2, which is an extra about Setsuna. I guess you can say it's chapter 11. (btw, it's short!)
 Aahh it feels so good to finish something that's been going on for so long! Since I don't know whether the mangaka has published any more chapters or volumes for this manga, I'll just think of it as a completed one for now :D. If anyone has any news about this which they think I should know then, please, douzo! I'd love to know if there's any *official* continuation to the story!
As always, thank you LynnaChan for cleaning this one too. :) :)



Here it is!

I love it when the file sizes are so small! :3
Jaa na!

*Edit* Oops, seems like I put the last page(Special Thanks page) in the beginning instead..Well, I'm too tired to change that now..:S It wouldn't matter to the readers that much, right? ;)

Introducing...VNs! & Hierofania!

Hey guys! So I've been playing (or, more like, reading) visual novels for a long time now (almost three years now!) :D (but still,I feel like I haven't played much..) and I wanted to let those who haven't yet heard of them know about them! They're so cool!

Ehem, anyway, I've played quite a few of them, and I like the idea of this whole thing. Oh, don't forget an important category there, which is Otome Games! They've been rather popular recently, haven't they? Many people around the world are getting to know the world of visual novels and otome games, and some otome games(well,it's an exaggeration X), Hakuouki is the only one I know that have been licensed.:3 ) have even been licensed in America!

For those who aren't familiar with the term, visual novels are (and I quote from Mobygames) ,also called NVL games, "digital novels", and "choose-your-own-adventure games": games in which the story is told through text overlaid on a background representing the scene being described. The player's input is confined to periodically making choices which might affect the direction and outcome of the story. Mostly regarded as a branch of Japanese adventure, but Western examples exist as well.

So, put into simpler words, it's a mix between pictures, a novel, and music (not in all VNs) AND...You get to control(to a certain extent) the main character! The main character encounters different situations and meets different people throughout the game, and depending on what you choose in certain situations, the story changes, and  you get the ending your choices have led you to.

As for otome games : Otome(乙女) means 'maiden' or 'young girl', so they're games for girls where you aim for guys XD . A site that tells you a lot of info about otome games in English is >> englishotomegames.net . ^_^ And here's they're definition of  'Otome Game' since mine probably wasn't sufficient. "An otome game (乙女ゲーム, otome gēmu, literally meaning maiden game) is a video game that is targeted towards a female market, where one of the goals, besides the main plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters."


Some VNs have very interesting and captivating stories, and it can become an addiction! XD
Aand sometimes you could even become insanely addicted to certain otome games and you don't know why!!
Tokimeki Memorial GS



Anyway, today I'm going to present to you a visual novel that I have played some time ago, which really piqued my interest. :3 Its creator is currently working on a sequel!

It is NOT an otome game :P

The title kind of caught my eye so I looked up the word and it turns out the original word is 'Hierophany' which signifies 'a manifestation of the sacred' (Wiki of course :P)..Interesting, right?? :3
 I think the introduction the author out on the site is enough, and it retains its mystery so I won't mention any more details about the story itself. 

Click on the image and go check it out! I personally liked it, although it left me (and probably many others) with unanswered questions. The art is unique, and I  absolutely loved the music <3. Even after I finished the game, I kept it open just to listen to the soundtrack ~  (─‿‿─)
Still, the main and most important factor on which I base my opinions (on many/most VNs) is of course the story! The narration was pretty good, and it gave the whole plot this..somewhat cool atmosphere , which was but a bonus to the already 'vivid' story, as I like to call it. :)

This might just be me overrating it, and maybe I am, because I really like it but, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try! There's a first for everything! So you might want to go to their download page! :3

You see, I'm almost always apprehensive of giving strong opinions about something, let alone recommending something to others, for fear that people might not like it, or blame me if they don't find it as interesting as I did...In the end I've always felt guilty about that..
Nevertheless, I think I'll do my best to change that cowardly attribute of mine from now on  X ) And I'm starting now!!
:D

Mitsu Aji Blood Chapter 10!

Hello, Daisy here!
Woohoo! So, finally I've been able to finish the 10th and last chapter of Mitsu Aji Blood,as far as I know..

There's an extra(chapter 11) included in this volume(vol.2) and *supposedly* I have it on my PC, which is still being repaired. Apparently there was a major problem with the hardware..T_T..I'm currently using a laptop I've borrowed in order to complete this release! :D So once I get my PC back I'll see about that extra chapter. It's about Setsuna, and it doesn't affect the original story.
I pulled two-almost three- all-nighters to finish this chapter! Oww my aching back DX..Anyway, it was for the good of the people! :D Omg, and the last page!!! It consumed a lot of my life force XD since I kind of re-cleaned many parts..><
Exactly how I looked like.












Of course, as usual, special thanks to my life saver LynnaChan ^_^. She cleaned this chapter for me, and you. :)
I hope you like this chapter (regardless of how the story ends ^^'') since LynnaChan and I did our best! :)

(Spoiler)(Kind of)

Now, about the ending....Well....I know it might not be that satisfying, but at least they're together for now,right?
I've also  heard that the author actually had another ending in mind but couldn't publish it because of some publishing problems,or problems with the magazine, something like that..(that gave me some hope :D)
(End of Spoiler)

Oh,and one more thing I thought I should mention is that there is a third volume for Mitsu Aji Blood. However,I've heard from some people that it only has extras, including Mitsu Aji Blood 0, which was released before as a one-shot, I think.
I have not seen or read that volume myself so I can never be 100% sure,though.I only got the scans for volume 2 from Alice.

Edit: I've also found out that there's up to chapter 14 on a Chinese site!! (They added 3 more chapters) But then I figured out they were just doujinshi.. :(  PLUS, they're in Chinese! XD (Another possibility is that they're the extras from volume 3,which I don't have..I doubt that though...)
Here's the link if anyone's interested >>http://www.17kk.cc/intro/18117.htm

And finally, the links !! (I don't know why they're so long :S )

Peace!

Oh, and please let me know what you think of this chapter!!! > <

Coming Soon..!

Hey there everybody ! This is my first post after being AWOL for so long ! Well ,I don't think I'll be able to post regularly ,but for now ,I've got good news ! To all of you Mitsu Aji Blood fans waiting for chapter 9 to be released , I would like to tell you all that it's going to be released really soon ! So ,please look forward to it ! Thank you LynnaChan for helping me with the editing ,and Anna ,for helping me with the translating ! Actually ,you see, Anna ,who's helping me translate , sent me her translations a very looong time ago. And so did LynnaChan ,with the cleaned scans.But I have had a lot of problems since then and couldn't work on the chapter at all..It's an important year for me (in my studies) and 'real life' issues kind of carried over into my ,as I like to call it ,'other life' ,or 'PC life' :D.So that held me back and I couldn't do much about it .Moreover ,at that time, MY PC BROKE DOWN ! And believe me ,that has caused me a lot of problems..

 About chapter 9 ,Lynnachan has cleaned the whole chapter but I had already cleaned and typeset the first 8 pages before that,so I included them in the chapter instead.Simply because I didn't really have that much time to be redoing any pages or type-setting them all over. My ,uh, 'cleaning style' is a little different from LynnaChan ,who is much better than me of course ,so ,I apologize in advance if you find the differences (in the pictures) between the first 8 pages and the rest of the chapter a little annoying. I hope it doesn't bother you.

That post was relatively short ,wasn't it ? Compared to my previous ones ,I mean.XD Well ,I just wanted to let Mitsu Aji Blood's fans (,who,*hopefully* aren't going to kill me) rest assured ,because chapter 9 is on the way ! (Chapter 10(the last one) isn't ,though ,just saying..But I'll try my best..But don't expect much..I've been so busy as of late..T_T ) (Oh..and , with all the mess that happened when my PC crashed ,I kind of lost the raw scans for chapter 11 (the extra) .I can't find it anywhere on the computer ,but I'll try to get the raws from anyone who has them (and is kind enough to send them to me) ,or maybe even ask xxdAlicebxx to re-send them to me..Argh I can't believe I lost them...But well ,let's worry about chapter 10 first ^_^'' ..)

Oh ,I almost forgot since it's been so long .The Good deed a Day section !! :D (It seems like this post won't be 'short' anymore like I thought ^^'' )

Today ,it's going to be a quotation I like.It was said by Uncle Toui form 'Her Majesty's Dog' : ''A sword of steel cuts the flesh...and a sword of words cuts the soul.''

Also this : ''Suspicion sees with double vision.Don't forget.'' - also by Uncle Toui


Oh ,and this is a quote which I just found ,so I don't know who said it.. : 'You have to know the past to understand the present.'

Well , I have several things to say about that quote..so I'll just say my opinion.
I guess this means that we shouldn't judge people ,as we haven't seen their past or known what they've been through or what has made them the way they are in the present.We don't know their past ,so how could we just judge them like that ?! Plus ,it's not like we're any better than many of the people we tend to judge ; we're not perfect either.We all have flaws ,even if we're not aware of most of them.
But sometimes ,it just depends on the person ! Sometimes you meet those kinds of people who can just completely understand you ,and what you do ! Without knowing your past !(Or maybe they can understand you by just knowing just a little of your past.) They can just read people like an open book ! (But well ,that's kind of rare..)
And ,this might be a little irrelevant but , there's more to every one of us than meets the eye ! Even if it were the most honest ,blunt person ever ! I believe there's more to them ! And ,since some of you readers (who probably don't exist, I always hope for the best XD ) read manga ,I believe you've come across that case a lot ! Like ,when someone turns out to be a completely different person than what you thought they'd be..


Oookay, gone out of hand ,as usual .. So , good luck with your life ,anyone who's reading this :D !
See you !(really soon ! )
