Why do I need to pay to read fanfiction in anime form inside an app with pictures? 😩

Because 1) It’s not fanfiction. It’s a real company with a real following with real products. 2) Because it’s a real company that has real people making real storylines and real artwork, it requires real money to pay for said people providing said services and 3) These real stories are actually pretty awesome quality and the artwork is incredible. Totally worth every penny. 
Still think it should be free? Fine. Write a bunch short stories, provide all of the illustrations and see if you still want your hours upon hours of hard work to be given out for free instead of making a profit and potentially providing growth for the stories, artwork, and the tools needed to make said stories and artwork.
Moral of the Story: You want nice things? You gotta pay for them. 
/drops mic/

Actually, not only this, but there are boards processing all of these stories and approving them before they are released. The artists of the games are actually different which you can even see in the sprite art.Not to mention with the sprite art, there are different faces for different reactions, like in games such as series games like Zero Escape, Harvest Moon, and even games in Fire Emblem. Sprite art is actually very hard to work with as with different emotions, they can be hard to organize, and they must stay in the character prefixes.And let’s not forget the complete redo sprites in different seasons, like the Pirates in Love, Dream Days in West Tokyo, Class Trip Crush, and Meguru in Ten Days With My Devil(when the time skip comes into play, or for Meguru’s case, a transformation). Also worth mentioning is when the character’s outfits change like in My Forged Wedding and Seduced in the Sleepless City.The organization of all of these sprites must be kept in order which is very hard even for professional graphic artists because of all the variables.And another thing that wasn’t covered by drawthecurtainsstarttheplay is that remember, these games have all been translated. That means that there is a translation team on each game that also needs to be paid for rewording and recoding the routes.And additionally, don’t forget advertising, the promo videos being made, voice actors for those videos, events being held, and more importantly, Apple also receives a revenue payment monthly for use.So yes, Voltage does require payment, but they do include GREE games which are not solely money based and can be(slowly) played for free.However, you also must understand that many paid products are made to be professional. Many free otome games are actually very good, for instance my highly recommended Frozen Essence and Re:Alistair, but because these routes are paid products, they are made to be fully functional and high quality. If not, you are encouraged to even talk to a representative and work things out, to which they are very friendly from personal experience.Please be open about these things; yes, they may be asking for a fair bit of money, but on the outside, the stories are worth it. If you scratch the surface and look at all the processing and work, these stories are actually pretty cheap for something that could easily be sold for more.

In Defence of the Metro PD Heroine

nadeshikoshiraishi:

Ever since Metro PD came out, I’ve been seeing a lot of complaints and criticism about the heroine and her competence. They say that she acts like a damsel in distress instead of a badass when she’s suppose to be a detective/cop. Or how she doesn’t keep her cool when faced with a dangerous situation. They conclude her to be unworthy of being a detective/cop. However, they fail (or perhaps they just don’t want to) to understand the heroine’s circumstances as a whole.

Therefore, I decided to make a sort of analysis post in order for us to better understand the heroine.

Read More

I actually haven’t played Metro PD yet, but here’s the thing: everything said above is so true.
However, what’s actually wrong with being a damsel in the first place? Yes, as women, a lot of us are looking for a strong, independent playable character who don’t need no man… But really, there’s nothing wrong with being a damsel in distress(other than being in distress).

However, that’s really against the point; the point is that this MC is actually very strong and successful in what she’s done. She’s maintained her job well before the story, doing what she’s expected to do. The story starts at a moment where a big change happens in her life…And every Voltage game starts this way; every good story does.

In the end, let’s take us in example. Imagine us working in a small time company or business and then all of a sudden being moved to a bigger position, maybe even city to be hired for a bigger purpose. So a McDonald’s cashier all of a sudden becomes a CEO of McDonalds. The change might not be as drastic, but it’s definitely a change in physical and mental labor.
