How to get Gen 2 Eevee Evolutions Umbreon and Espeon in Pokemon Go

Many players may already know this trick, but in order to get an Umbreon, name any male Eevee Tamao; or to get Espeon name any female Eevee Sakura, then completely exit the game, make sure it’s not running in the background, and relaunch the game.

I have photographic proof that this trick works. Got both Umbreon and Espeon on our first attempt.

To see the pics or read more about the trick, please refer to my guide at https://mediacraft.rockuapps.com/articles/how-to-get-gen-2-evee-evolutions-umbreon-and-espeon-in-pokemon-go

Qbox Sailormoon Subscription Box Now On Sale – Shipping Begins February 2017

Qbox is a mystery box that features a different kawaii theme each month. The theme for February is Sailor Moon! They did another Sailormoon Qbox back in 2015.

To me the quality of the items in previous Qbox seems low – just judging from other peoples’ box opening photos and videos I’ve seen online.

If the Sailormoon Qbox was around 18-23 bucks (including shipping and handling) I’d probably pick this up myself. However, sadly, that’s not the case.

The Sailormoon Qbox is around $32 (with shipping), for 8 (or more) sailormoon items. They say the items are officially licensed and from Japan. So that may add some value. But judging from what I’ve seen it seems like small cheap plush, stationary, scrapbook materials, and etc. — While all of those things are kawaii, to me they aren’t enough to justify the price of the box which I feel is about $10 overpriced right now.

If you’re a sailormoon fan and interested in checking out Qbox then hurry because Qbox have a history of selling out!! Go here to get your own Sailormoon Qbox! http://www.getqbox.com/-qshop/februarybox This is a one time box and not a subscription.

Loot Crate’s Sanrio “Small Gift Crate” Quarterly Subscription Box

UPDATE: My first Sanrio Small Gift Crate Has Arrived! Head here for box opening photos and my review.

I just signed up for Loot Crate’s brand new Sanrio “Small Gift Crate” which is a subscription box that arrives once every 3 months (4 times a year) similar to the Pusheen box, which I’ve reviewed here.

This new crate costs 34.99 every three months and has $75+ worth of official and exclusive Sanrio goodies inside. I love Hello Kitty – so this was too cute to pass up. Hope to see some of my favorite Sanrio and Sanx characters make an appearance such as Chococat and Cinnamoroll.

They ask for your shirt size when you sign up so you can expect some wearable goodies too! Probably a mix of toys, figurines, stickers, plushies, stationary, accessories, fashion goodies, and maybe some home goods as well.

Looking forward to the first crate! And of course I’ll post up a review once it arrives.

If you want to sign up you can visit https://www.lootcrate.com/crate/sanrio-crate to learn more and subscribe now.

According to the official game page gameplay seems to be that of a rhythm game:

“What’s NEKOPALIVE? Why, it’s a “cat-certo!” The catgirls of La Soleil take to the stage and step into the spotlight with their very own live concerts. Dancing, singing, MIX’ing and purring, this is the NEKOPARA event that comes right home to you, and you’ve got the best seat in the house! No idol can compare to a catgirl! 🐾

Match the rhythm to cheer on the stars of the show! Watch them become the greatest idols of all! ” (Source: https://sekaiproject.com/2016/05/31/nekopalive-now-on-steam/ )

This free game will work with HTC Vive and Occulus Rift. I think it can also work without a VR Headset.

It features cute adorable cat girls from the visual kinetic novel games Nekopara as they get transformed into Japanese idol singers.

The cute jpop songs featured in the trailer are very catchy.

Gameplay seems quick and easy to pick up. A treat for fans of casual styled games like Love Live, or rhythm games such as DDR or Parapara.

Since it’s free you can head over to steam and pick it up right now. http://store.steampowered.com/app/469990

Easily Find English Anime Import Games Now on Play Asia

Play Asia has a new section to help you find english text or english voiced games. All english #games in one place! http://www.play-asia.com/info/asiaenglish?sc1=N416324849/?affiliate_id=801127

Personally I’m thinking of picking up the following…

Moe Chronicles – a Hentai / Eroge / Anime / Erotic Dungeon Crawling RPG with Cute Anime Girls  By Compile Heart – makers of Neptunia, among others. It just looks sooo cuuute!!! Kawaii! CUTE!

Moe Chronicle (Chinese & English Sub)

Are you going to grab anything now that you can be sure you can understand the game in English?

Their section of english games is small — one thing I did see that’s sure to make people happy is that they can get and play DOA Volleyball 3 in English thanks to Play Asia. This game was banned from being sold in the United States and considered by many to be sexist. I’ve played some of the earlier games and actually really enjoyed them. I’m against all forms of censorship – and I see nothing wrong with these games – It’s a proven fact that Sex sells. I do think it’s funny and giggle to myself about how Play Asia is marketing the game, talking about the breast-rendering graphical enhancements and performance enhancements to make the boob jiggling super realistic lol. — Anyways I know a LOT of people were pissed when this game was pulled due to complaints by mainstream media critics. — So now fans can finally get to play the game – and YES it’s in English and YES it’ll work on your existing PS4 without needing to purchase anything else!

It comes in a variety of different versions ranging from just $39 to almost $300 for different collector or combo sets.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune (Multi-Language)

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune – $59.99 at Play-Asia in English Language

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune Collector’s Edition -$129.99 on Play-Asia in English

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Venus (Multi-Language)

Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus $49.99 at Play-Asia in English Language

Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 [Saikyou Package] (Multi-Language)

Double Pack – Collector’s Edition – $299.99 Play Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in English

CrunchyRoll Announces New Anime Violet Ever Garden Details and Trailer

Check out the new trailer for Violet Ever Garden.

I am so excited for this! (and isn’t the opening theme awesome too? And look how cute she is – and just OMG. Geeking out right now so bad lol.) I had never heard of it, until I saw the trailer on CrunchyRoll’s Facebook page. From the comments on the facebook wall and the official website at http://www.kyotoanimation.co.jp/books/violet/ this anime is about Artificial Intelligence / AI / Robots / Robotics – Similar to Chobits, Time of Eve, Metropolis, HAL, and Plastic Memories. – All favorites of mine – I am fascinated by the concept of humanoid AI creatures – especially those who have feelings, or what we would classify as feelings – and how they would fit into society. It might also be quite similar to Tegami Bachi as it looks like she has the power to convey emotions within letters just like Lag Seeing – Tegami Bachi is another favorite of mine as well – so this is shaping up to be a must watch for me.

Violet Ever Garden is a Japanese light novel, written by Kana Akatsuki and illustrated by Akiko Takase.

I also found the below trailer and story synopsis from http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-05-27/kyoani-award-winning-novel-violet-evergarden-gets-anime-project/.102551 

Kyoto Animation describes the story:

Auto Memories Doll.It’s been quite a while since that name caused a fuss. Originally invented by Professor Orland solely for his beloved wife, Auto Memories Dolls eventually spread out into the world, and a machine that allows people to rent out the dolls was also created.

“I will run as fast as I can to wherever my customer desires. I am the Auto Memories Doll, Violet Evergarden.”

A girl who almost appears to have popped out of a fairy tale with her blonde hair and blue eyes said this with her inorganic beauty and sweet voice.

Betoyo Anime Figure Subscription Box Launches Website Revival and Lower Pricing

A representative from Betoyo contacted me last week to let me know they’ve recently updated their website and introduced new lower pricing for their monthly subscription box full of geeky anime goods.

I discovered Betoyo when working on my Top 10 Subscription Boxes for Geek Girls Blog Post a few months ago. At the time, their website was outdated, but I could tell from their social media and blog that the site and service was still active. I’m glad to hear about the website revival and new pricing! (and I’ll also go update my top 10 list to reflect the good news).

This subscription box focuses mostly on anime figures, such as nendoroids, capsule toys, and other dolls and collectibles. The new cost is just $28 + $5 Shipping and Handling making it just $33 a month. About the cost of one nendoroid. I dunno if the products are officially licensed or not, but they look high quality and super cute too. I really like this box since I collect dolls and figures such as these. I’m thinking of signing up too when I get paid Friday.

If you want your own Betoyo box check them out at http://www.betoyo.com/

You can check out some of the recent boxes people have received on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/betoyo/

Kawaii Cat Cafe JRPG, 7th Dragon, Heads West with Over 96 Ways to Customize the Appearance of Your Hero

7th Dragon until now, has remained a title only available in Japan, but that is about to change with 7th Dragon III Code VFD on the Nintendo 3DS.

This quirky little Time Travel RPG sees us in a not too distant future which is at war with powerful dragons. In order to save the world from destruction, you must travel to the ancient city of Atlantis, future capital of Eden, and present day Tokyo.

The artwork features chibi super-deformed, bobble head, big head, tiny body style character designs, giving everything a very cute anime feeling. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean. Very Kawaii!:

With the cute art work, and almost endless ways to customize your hero, this game immediately sparks my radar. I admit, I’ve not heard of 7th Dragon until now. I’m somewhat surprised to see Sega’s name attached to this project, but then again, not really no, because they do own Atlus who is well known for “risky” games like this which “cater to Otaku” – I wonder why they wouldn’t brand this title under their Atlus flagship since it has a lot of loyal fans already which they could then leverage to get more attention for this cute little game.

From the very brief teaser, it looks like it will be an emotionally engaging story as well – We see a character sick in a hospital bed for example.

Most intriguingly of all Destructoid reports that “And as if that weren’t bizarre enough, the role-playing game involves rescuing stray cats from dungeons and sheltering them in a cat café.” And if you don’t know what a Cat Cafe is, you can check out my post for 10 Cat Cafe you can visit in North America.

The whole “Cat Cafe” concept makes the game even more Kawaii and immediately appealing to me (and likely also to my readers). I’m becoming more and more intrigued by this little game and can’t wait to check it out.

The game will release on July 2016 and is available for preorder on Amazon here: Preorder 7th Dragon III Code VFD

 

Those who click the amazon link above can read even more of the game’s features – Incredibly enough, it even features a dating sim element. Given that the series originally was created and handled by Imageepoch who made Fate/Extra which plays INSANELY SIMILAR to Persona 3 and 4… I can imagine that THIS dungeon crawling RPG will also be very similar to Fate/Extra and Persona 3 and 4.

The Japanese voice cast has been left in tact, and not only do you customize your heroes’ appearances, but also their voices, with more than 40 voices to choose from!

This game is Kawaii to the Max! Very Otaku Pandering, and very very very cute and quirky. Personally, I can’t wait! BRING ON THE CAT CAFE DUNGEON CRAWLING DRESSUP JRPG! This game is right up my alley!
