Madou Soshi (episode 4)

SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t listened to episodes 1-3, this review will spoil things for you, even in the thought section where I try to avoid them. I suggest reading the previous Madou Soshi review first.


“Are you talking about the stone wall with more than three thousand rules? There are way too many! I can’t read them all!”
“What era are you talking about? Nowadays it’s four thousand and ninteen of them.”
“Noooo! Let me leave!”

Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) woke up in a new body he had received to avenge the original owner. After doing so by chance, he hurries away to avoid Ran Bouki (CV: Satoshi Hino). However, he meets the man again regardless and things don’t quite go the way he expected them to.

Madou Soshi (episodes 1-3)

Important note! All names, including the title, are in Japanese! For those who have read the novel or comic, or watched the animated or live action series, I’ve put a list of names after the summaries to minimise confusion. Madou Soshi is the Japanese reading title of Mo Dao Zu Shi, and not me bullshitting some random title because I can’t read Chinese much anymore.
Also! Usually I write Given name Family name on characters. This is reversed this time because it just sound better. I drop family names unless I need to use them after writing it once though.

It’s not difficult to figure out though, and soon he’s working on taking revenge, while hoping to stay alive himself. Continue reading

AMNESIA LATER

First I want to mention that this is the fan disc of AMNESIA, which I reviewed the localised version of here. The FDs for Amnesia aren’t available in English, and I played the original version for PSP, but there is a Vita version which is called Later x Crowd and is the two FDs ported together. There’s also a Switch version of Later x Crowd coming out in October in Japan.

The Heroine lost her memories as Orion (CV: Hiromi Igarashi) bumped into her consciousness. To ensure that her memories return, she needed to be stimulated. She pretended to be fine while working, studying and meeting people she couldn’t remember how she interacted with. But she somehow managed and found love.

And now we’re back in August when it all had just begun… Continue reading
