[Translation] Cendrillon Palika – an introduction to the world


Cendrillon Palika unfortunately has no staff blogs that document the development process of the game, but there was quite a hefty amount of information the staff shared through other official channels, such as the game’s Twitter and in magazines (largely B’s-LOG). I got really into checking out them out, and they were of much interest, so I thought I wanted to write up about some of them to share.

Shoutout to eBookJapan for letting me buy all the digital versions of B’s-LOG so that I don’t have to suffer shipping fees and restrictions for the physical ones. Even if I do want the physical ones more, but the information is more important, anyway. Have you, like me, been dying to know what Palika is supposed to mean, especially when Cendrillon is so easy to figure out? Your questions will finally be answered!

Note that these translations are super loose and I am not a professional by any means, so if you see any glaring errors, please feel free to let me know. Since a lot of this is teaser material for the game, there isn’t much in the way of spoilers.

[Game review] 7’scarlet


Hanamaki Ichiko’s older brother has mysteriously disappeared since a year ago, and she goes about her daily life waiting for updates on the incident until her childhood friend, Kagutsuchi Hino, suggests that they visit the very place where her brother went missing in to find out the truth for themselves. Ichiko is hesitant to accept his invitation at first, but after thinking it over, she agrees. Thus commences their journey to Okunezato, where they meet up with some new friends and learn about the secrets the town is hiding.

[Game review/walkthrough] Yotsumegami / Yotsume God


In the middle of a family visit, a pair of masked children appear before Sahara Mai and beseech her to help their mother in pain. She follows them, only to soon find herself at a shrine deep within the mountains that she is not at all familiar with. Imigo, a resident of the shrine, is less than pleased to see Mai at his dwelling and sends her off, but some mysterious power seems to be keen on keeping her there. Only then does Imigo agree to help Mai find a way to leave the shrine safely, and thus begins their journey, with Mai taking a step towards discovering the truth behind her past.

I actually had this post in progress for quite some time and then SURPRISE SEEC RELEASED YOTSUMEGAMI IN ENGLISH. It feels surreal to call it Yotsume God now. IT REALLY HAPPENED…clenches fist and sheds a single tear as I add English to the list of available languages…thank you, SEEC, for giving me a reason to play through the game again. I also wrote up a guide / walkthrough on the second page of this post, if anyone needs it!

[Liveblog diary] Cendrillon Palika


Here’s my thoughts on Cendrillon Palika, except in the raw unfiltered orange juice version compared to the more polished one I wrote up. Yeah, I wrote a nearly 41,000 word post for this. You are truly capable of doing anything your heart desires.

December 6, 2018. Main features: copious amounts of yelling, “WHAT THE HELL”, “I LOVE HAILI?”. Not featured: the amount of times I kept tripping over my typing as I was liveblogging the game along with some choice words that were excised to keep this family-friendly. More Opinions (TM), and musing on the series along with general meta.

Spoilers are not whited out, so take caution.
