tattooeddicks:

it’s one thing to pirate stuff from a shitty big name artist so you won’t support their bullshit (ie racists like katy perry), or an artist who says it’s okay and even encourages it (ie chumbawamba and many indie acts), but pirating something inexpensive that an artist worked super hard on is is really shitty, especially when they literally did all of the work by themselves.

yeah, go ahead and pirate the creations of racist people, of sexists and transmisogynists and homophobes. i’m cool with that. you shouldn’t support those people, but moa is none of those things.

let’s talk about how progressive hatoful boyfriend is for a second:

  • hiyoko is the most well-developed female protagonist in a game i’ve ever played in my entire life. she’s literally perfect.
  • despite the fact that a main character crossdresses about 25% of the time, there are no transmisogynist jokes about it.
  • did you hear that?
  • moa made a game where dudes wear dresses
  • and didn’t feel the need to make horrible jokes at the expense of transgender women
  • that in and of itself deserves a reward because literally every other piece of media does that, even if there aren’t crossdressing people
  • moa did all of this basically alone. the main routes alone probably take 3 hours to complete when playing through, and if you do bbl it’d take like 6 (unless you rush through it and skip text of course!)
  • it’s one of the few dating sims that doesn’t conflate love with sex
  • moa managed to make an otome game that passes the bechdel test. billion-dollar movies starring women cannot do this. moa did it in an otome game, where there are usually not even two girl characters.
  • there’s romance-motivated violence, but it’s not sexualized, used as a plot device, or deemed acceptable based on the behavior of the victim. that’s another thing big-budget movies can’t seem to manage to get right.

in conclusion: hatoful boyfriend is an awesome game. when you buy it, you’re supporting a form of media that’s incredibly queer- and woman-positive. it’s what got me back into gaming, because every other game alienates me as a queer person and someone who’s dfab: because it posits me as gross and less worthy of respect through jokes and subtle slights to people like me. hatoful doesn’t do that, and it’s incredibly refreshing! that’s why i like it so much.

i mean yeah, the story is amazing and the characters are ridiculously well-developed, but the important thing is i feel safe playing it and that is incredibly hard to achieve when you’re a mentally ill dfab pansexual trans person who’s a survivor of sexual assault.

Happy Tragic Quail Boyfriends week~

OH. Ohhh, that kinda sorts out my brain cell wrt the latest drama cd track translation (http://kyaaa.dreamwidth.org/11581.html)— of course Narcolepsy-sensei assumed his new identity after Tragic Quail Boyfriends Day, but he also left behind a body that was eventually identified and stored as Nageki’s brother.
So maybe the new voice on the drama cd (which iirc was identified only as “Dream Bird” in the liner notes) isn’t really Hitori, but rather is the phantom presence of Hikikomori-sensei’s corpsicle (still disguised as Hitori) with some of The King’s dream-manipulation powers? So it’s almost an AU HoliStar where The King attempts a surgical strike (so to speak) to just take down Narcolepsy-sensei instead of sucking in the whole school?

Byakuya Togami VS. Sakuya Le Bel Shirogane 

who will win

Considering they’re both voiced by the same guy, they’ll die themself when the other one wins, and then the world will explode because it’s like the meeting of matter and anti-matter to become nothingness. Or there’ll be a time paradox, and then the world explodes. Pick your poison. :D
