What, it’s been six years since I started this blog? (WordPress tells me that Feb 27 is the day I registered with them)

Anyhow, I can still remember starting my first blog with my twin a LONG TIME AGO. Even longer than this blog’s anniversary.

What’s more, my twin and I are sharing a birthday today! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I started this blog and even more so on how far I’ve come.

You might see her anytime on my blog so I hope you stick around, lovelies ☺♡

Recently watched: DC’s Titans

I have a peculiar habit of adding a lot of shows to my list and when I do watch them, only a handful ends up getting some time from me.

Anyhow, I heard of the series from DC-related news and I’m surprised at how much it drew me in. (Read: I watched several episodes back-to-back…)

Apologies for the accidental posting of my draft!

I am in the midst of adding something on the app that I didn’t realise that I tapped the publish button instead when it tells me that the draft is successfully saved.

I suppose a good night’s sleep is in order! 😅 I hope everyone has a lovely weekend ✨

If you’re celebrating the Lunar New Year, how has it been so far? I’d love to know!

Apparently, the Princess Closet Twitter had changed its icon to a Christmas theme a while back. If you missed it, check out Ms. Nanami’s post (in Japanese) here!

It’s a little late but Happy New Year everyone! Here is to another year of many good things, joy and peace for all of us! 🎉🎉

A change in focus

With 100 posts on the blog, it’s high time for me to talk about a change with my blog’s focus.

I started this blog to give my otome game fandom space. Almost nine years after stumbling upon free-to-play doujin otome games, it pretty much trickled to something I do IF I had long stretches of free time.

Anyhow, just a very roundabout way of saying I’ll be blogging about other things outside my usual consumption of games, manga and other Japan-related things.

On the other hand, I have been reading a lot. This year saw me reading plenty of new authors. What have you been doing outside of Japan-related hobbies? :3

Princess Closet Akito Birthday Album 2018 reveal and new official icons!

The Princess Closet fans in Japan has once again got together to compile messages and various fan-made illustrations, stories into an album for Akito!

Check out Ms. Nanami’s post over here.

There are also various fan-made icons that you can use on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – change your icon on October 25 and gather around to celebrate our beloved photographer’s birthday 🙂

Ciagram has also released new icons for you to use on Twitter! The account’s icon now features a CG from their Halloween event with Akito. That is some costume the both of them are wearing ;’D

On another front, they have a small announcement (embedded above) tucked away on their pinned tweet, apparently, with tidings of a certain something in the works related to Princess Closet! They ask fans to look forward to further news.
