By webtoon author’s standards.

Spoilers, do you fear them?

Written by

There is something I’ve noticed more and more as of recent years compared to early 2000. It is the fear of spoilers.

When I began scanlation back in 2002, visitors to my site were, in general, not afraid of spoilers. Instead, they wanted them. The year is now 2016 and the fear of spoilers seems to loom large. There are even “spoiler tags” that hide context if it’s deemed to be spoilers.

 

Which, for me at least, begs a question. Why be afraid of spoilers? First, let’s see what spoilers are about.

There is a manga A chapter 12. You haven’t read it and obviously you don’t know the outcome of the chapter. And then some jackass hoops onto a forum and makes a post of chapter 12 outcome or some important events.

Long story short, members enter rage-mode and demand a forum admin/mod to delete the thread or posts.

Trance Female Fantasy dual RJ145661

Written by

This review is best read after you read my Trance Female Fantasy (the first game of the trilogy) review.

This game could be played without having previously played the first game, but you will be missing out a lot and question marks will be all over the places. Basically, if you don’t play the first game and play this, you won’t know the main goal of the game until the very end.

Therefore, it is advised that you play the first game.

The product code of this game is RE145661 (or RJ145661) which is a remastered version of the original game RE091952 (or RJ091952).

This game was released a year later the first installation (Trance Female Fantasy). And I suppose the title is again awkward.

The title for this second installation is Trance Female Fantasy Dual. This “dual” part could have several possible explanations. “Dual” could mean “2” which means this is the second installation of the trilogy. “Dual” could also mean how the main character of this game is. Lito, the protagonist of the game, goes through two transformations besides turning into a female.

Finally, “dual” could also mean that Lito is always with her sister, Merona.

Trance Female Fantasy RJ144042

Written by

Having reviewed (and played) Trance Female Fantasy: Final edition, I was sort of dragged into playing Trance Female Fantasy which is the first game in the trilogy.

Before I begin, I must inform you that I played a remastered version of Trance Female Fantasy which carries a product code of RJ144042. It is the remastered version of original game, RJ076524, released back in 2011.

The gameplay is the same but game interface and CG arts have been improved. Therefore, the remastered version does not alter the plot in anyway as far as I know.

The game is made with RPG maker and the developers are 6colors.

Trance Female Fantasy: Final Edition RJ153038

Written by

Rev 2.1

Yes, I realize the title is a little weird. After all, it’s “Trance Female Fantasy: Final Edition”. This series is actually a trilogy. It is not mandatory to play the first two games but it is advised to play the first two, just so you know what is going on.

I’ve played the first two games in this trilogy and this will contain spoilers.

You can search more about this game by googling the game’s product code which is RJ153038 or RE153038. The RJ code will direct you to a Japanese (Dlite) site. RE code will direct you to Dlite’s English site.

The first one in the trilogy is Trance female fantasy (RE144042).

The second one is Trance female fantasy Dual (RE145661).

This game is a R-18 (Rated 18+ AKA hentai) game made by 6colors. 6colors is a rather known hentai company. They’ve produced numerous games (10+) under very similar themes.

Their website is @ http://prismoffice.rdy.jp/6colors/

My thoughts: Whamanga

Before I begin my usual bit, allow me to introduce you how this webtoon began. The bits were taken from what the author posted when he had to skip an update due to catching cold.

Nobunaga no Yabo 14

Written by

I was surprised to find this game officially fully translated with powerup-kit enabled. As far as I remember, only the original version was officially translated and was released to PS2 and PS3. “Powerup kit” is more like an expansion pack in America. Or you can see it as a big DLC if that makes it easier for you to understand.

Meanwhile, I must mention that Nobunaga no yabo series and powerup kit have existed as long as I can remember. This is not a new marketing gimmick they’ve come up with. The reason for powerup kits was to patch and improve games. This started in an era where downing big patches over the Internet wasn’t possible. And this trend stuck and continued.

The full title is Nobunaga no yabo (14): Sphere of Influence
