I guess it’s time for a blog post again 😉 This time I want to introduce a bl game to you that I coincidentally found on Steam a short while ago. It’s completely free and I had around an hour of fun playing it so … if you don’t know what to do one evening, why not have a look at “Dr. Frank’s Build a Boyfriend”? 😉
Alright, it’s time for a short review again. Today I’d once again like to introduce you to a short film although it’s not a Chinese one this time. I’m talking about “Last Dance” which you can watch on Amazon.
The film is only about 3 minutes short so there isn’t much to say in regards to a plot. It’s just a movie about a dancer and a terrible loss.
There isn’t even anyone speaking and it doesn’t seem like any high budget-sparkly movie but I still felt that it was highly emotional. I actually cried after watching it. 😭
If you’re into short films or just like bl things and can cope with a tragedy, then please go ahead and watch it! I definitely didn’t regret having a look.
This is a game I encountered in the Google Play Store by chance. It’s not technically bl but you can make it bl. 😏 As the title already suggests: It’s a choice of romance so you can decide if this is straight, bl or gl.
How does it work?
The “game” (if you want to call it that) is entirely text-based. In fact, it’s more like reading a novel. The special thing about it is that you have the opportunity to influence this novel. For example, you can decide the gender of the protagonist and you can decide what kind of talents he has and, naturally, who he’ll fall in love with.
Looking at all those non-chinese bl things I’ve seen over the years Yami no Kodou (also known as Genwaku no Kodou) is probably the one that impressed me the most. It’s a japanese manga series that has been serialized since the 90s (and you’re able to see that) with a plot that is just so rich that I reread the whole thing as soon as I caught up with the translations. Seriously, I still feel like I’m reeling from withdrawal symptoms 😁
What is it about?
So, there’s this guy, Kouichi Amano, that lives with his single-mom who’s a novelist, his clingy younger brother Jun and his grandmother that seems like the only normal person around him. He himself doesn’t seem that strange either if you don’t look at the fact that he’s been having some strange dreams.
Very soon, that changes completely. He somehow gets caught up with Touya Kazuomi (our male lead) and Jun’s friend Kamio and the four clans they are part of. Those clans aren’t really on friendly terms with Amano’s family and it doesn’t help that they’re seeing some signs of impending doom that somehow seem to be related to him.
Between the struggle with the clans, the slowly growing feelings between him and Touya, and some tantrums his little brother his throwing, those two somehow find out that they’re, in fact, the reincarnations of some people from another world. Unfortunately, those guys left them a real mess behind that they have to solve now. Naturally, they can’t tell anyone and it doesn’t help that more trouble seems to be coming at them at every corner.
