Hello! I have a request can you tell me which of hakuouki games are released in english and on which platform and and which are in japanese?(since you are an expert on hakuouki games I thought I should ask you) Thank you

The Hakuoki Wikipedia listing actually has a rather nice list with all of this information, though I know it can be a little confusing to look at, it’s pretty accurate. 

There was also a really nice post floating around about 2-3 years ago that specified what English games related to which Japanese titles but for the life of me I can’t find it and it’s probably buried somewhere in my mess of a blog. Anyway, I’m going to try to recall what I remember, so here’s what we have:

Hakuōki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom 

Localized version of Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan, which was released for the PlayStation Portable on February 14, 2012.

Hakuōki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi

Localized version of Hakuouki: Bakumatsu Musouroku, which was released for the PlayStation Portable on February 19, 2013.

Hakuōki: Memories of the Shinsengumi 

image

Localized version of Hakuouki: Zuisouroku, which was released for the Nintendo 3DS on September 19, 2013.

Hakuōki: Stories of the Shinsengumi 

image

Localized version of Hakuouki: Junsouroku, which was released for the PlayStation 3 on May 6, 2014. 

Note: Junsouroku is the combination of Shinsengumi Kitan and Zuisouroku.

Hakuōki: Kyoto Winds

image

Localized version of Hakuouki Shinkai: Kaze no Shou which was only released on PlayStation Vita on May 15, 2017.

All dates listed are North American release dates, I apologize I’m not certain on when all the games were released in Europe outside of Kyoto Winds.

Looking at all the Japanese releases is probably the most confusing thing though so it’s no wonder people get lost. Even I still haven’t gotten it all down honestly (so please don’t call me an expert ^^;;; I’m not even close), but you have to keep in mind things have been repackaged, combined, and/or ported to different systems frequently since Hakuouki first debuted in 2008. And each time they’ve tried to add a little something new to entice fans into buying the new versions, but at this point if you have a Vita you have access to basically everything you need either English or Japanese, as far as physical copies (not downloads) go.

The only games we don’t have localized are Hakuouki: Reimeiroku, which is the prequel game featuring Ibuki Ryuunosuke and his experiences with the Shinsengumi before they were the Shinsengumi, and one I would personally love to see localized. Along with the three Yuugiroku games which aren’t really so much story as a collection of mini-games and challenges to unlock festival related events and CGs. Then there’s Hakuouki SSL ~sweet school life~ which is completely AU and has no bearing on the main story.

Hope this helps!

James “Jim” Perry Muri (19 October 1918 – 3 February 2013)

In the early morning of 4 June 1942, during the Battle of Midway, a Japanese aircraft carrier force was spotted approaching the island. Muri’s unit received no specific training nor any pre-flight briefing. He only knew the location of his target for the 2,000-pound torpedo that his B-26 was carrying—the area of the aircraft carrier Akagi. On the way to its target, Muri’s formation was intercepted by 30 Japanese Zero fighters. He was forced to make his attack at 200 feet above sea level, but his only chance to get out of the fighters’ line of fire, and the carrier’s outward pointing guns, was to fly along the Akagi flight deck. Following the encounter, he and one other B-26 pilot were able to land their planes safely on Midway Island. Muri’s torpedo had missed its mark and his unit, as part of the first attacking wave, did little damage. However, the ensuing three-day assault was successful as the Akagi had caught fire after being attacked by a group of Douglas SBD Dauntless aircraft during the battle. The carrier was later ordered to be scuttled by fleet commander Isoroku Yamamoto.

After the safe landing, an inspection revealed more than 500 bullet holes in Muri’s airplane, the left tire had been shot off, and all propeller blades and every major system had been damaged. Muri was allowed to cut the plane’s name from the fuselage to keep as a souvenir.

“Almost Home” is the main track from the 2013 Walt Disney Pictures film Oz the Great and Powerful. Commissioned by Disney, Simone Porter, Justin Gray, and Lindsey Ray wrote the bulk of the record. When Carey signed on to sing the song, she and Stargate’s Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen would later change it a bit and ultimately, complete it. On February 6, 2013, it was announced that Mariah Carey had recorded the song for the Disney film with production team Stargate, and that it would be released through digital download on February 19, 2013. Mariah Carey’s vocal range spans 3 octaves from low note of Bb2 to the whistle note of F#6. It reached #1 on the US Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart (Billboard)

Celebrating 2 years of Almost Home

anonymous asked:

I'm in a debate with some fellow Arrow\Olicity fans about when exactly did Olicity become the juggernaut it became, seasons 1 or 2? Some of them think the midpoint of season one the rest of us say season two. One of them have been apart of the fandom since day one and although Olicity was getting traction in season one by a set of fans and of course the network, the Eps and Mark Pedowitz but it wasn't until season two that articles, journalists, critics really dug into it as well as the fans....

Hm.  This is a good question because I think - in a way - it happened in stages and it depends on what aspect of Olicity you’re examining and from what POV in regards to creating that “juggernaut.”

For example…

Felicity Smoak arrives.  Her character clearly launched the instant she hit the screen. 

Her scene started and instantly Twitter lit up.  People loved her.  She was quirky.  She was fresh.  She was unexpected.  She made you smile and laugh aloud.  She did something for the show.

Then there was Oliver in that moment.

He smiled.  Something “real” shined through.  There was a click.  A something.  People noticed.  They might not have realized why, but the resounding response was, “I want more of that!”

The thing about Season One is… Felicity didn’t show up til Episode 3.  She didn’t interact with Oliver “a lot,” just bits and drabs here and there, so I don’t know if you could argue that it was a “juggernaut”in that moment.  I think it was the building of the juggernaut… the awakening of the juggernaut?  The first stirs of life?

Something was ignited very early on.

For me, it wasn’t until this scene in Episode 12

That I knew.  This was it.  This was her.  She was The One.  Oliver and Felicity were The Couple. Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards had that undefinable “It.”  That magic, that lightning in a bottle.  Bam! I saw it.  I recognized it instantly.  If I saw it?  I like to believe the people at CW were smart enough to see it too.

More than that, the CW recognized that Felicity Smoak “did something” for Oliver Queen’s character, acknowledging that she “fixed something” they didn’t even realize needed fixing.  It’s actually something they commented on in articles later.

But, back around February 19, 2013, word broke [x] that Emily Bett Rickards had been made a regular cast member.   February.  2013.  That was right before “The Dodger” episode (which, gee, coincidentally – or not so much – was an episode that really focused on Felicity & brought her into the mission to catch the jewel thief).

By the time Oliver and Felicity hit the elevator shaft in Season 1, Episode 22, the media was pretty much abuzz with Olicity talk.  Oliver and Felicity were talked about on a lot of sites, and were already being included in various shipper polls.  There were a lot of teases, a lot of praise both for Felicity/Emily and Olicity.

During the hiatus between Season 1 and 2, Olicity were everywhere – shipper polls, couple polls, contests competitions….  We were there.

When Season 2′s promotion started, Olicity were pictured in EW’s “What to Watch” for Arrow’s premiere episode.  Olicity was the pic the CW used to promote the show’s return before the premiere. Olicity were included in the San Diego Comic Con Sizzle Reel (remember that window stunt?)

So, while I could debate “when” Olicity started in terms of romance (Season 1, 2, or 3) and what moment caught me as a shipper… the question was, “…when exactly did Olicity become the juggernaut it became?”

I think without what unfolded during Season 1, the media coverage in Season 2 wouldn’t have existed.  But, the coverage for Oliver/Felicity (and the use of them to promote Arrow before Season 2 even started) would have me leaning toward saying Season 1 was when it gained traction with the visual effects of it not really “seen”/felt by viewers (in the media, in promotion, etc) until Season 2. 

So yeah. I’m going to go with Season 1.

What about you, Oliciters?  What would you say?

Adam Kaplan's post on twitter

I just saw Adam’s post on twitter and it made me cry….

Adam: Indulge me for a second… A little over a year and a half ago when making my Broadway debut (February 19, 2013 to be exact) I turned to Jacob Guzman as the overture of Newsies began and said with excitement, fear, and pure joy: “…this is happening.” For 8 shows a week for the last 18 months he, Eduardo Castro, and I have been saying that phrase to each other as the downbeat of the overture begins. It’s become not only a silly tradition, but a reminder of how lucky we have been to have had this experience and to feel the nightly rush of having your dream come true.

Newsies changed my life. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to fall so madly in love with a group of people, nor with such a well crafted piece of theatre. To be a part of this community is a dream in itself, but to have made my debut alongside this family is all the icing on every Shmackeries cookie ever. Thank you all for sharing in my excitement and my joy throughout this process. Thank you for giving me enough memories to last a lifetime.

Today will be a tough day. But, it will also celebrate the culmination of hard work, endless amounts of heart, and a damn good piece of theatre.
Jack Feldman said it perfectly in one of my favorite parts of the show:

“Don’t take much to be a dreamer, 
All you do is close your eyes
But some made-up world is all you ever see
Now my eyes is finally open
And my dreams, they’s average-size
But they don’t much matter if you ain’t with me.”

Good things come and go, but it’s the people you share them with that makes each moment all the more special. “Newsies forever, second to none.” I love you all.

Lou Myers

Lou Leabengula Myers (September 26, 1935 – February 19, 2013) was an American actor. Myers was typically typecast as a grumpy old man, but he has appeared in many movies, stage plays television sitcoms, and dramas. He got his first break as an understudy in the Broadway play, The First Breeze of Summer as Reverend Mosley. He is perhaps best known as the feisty Mr. Vernon Gaines in the sitcom A Different World. Myers was also an accomplished pianist.

Myers was born in Chesapeake, West Virginia, the son of Dorothy Jeffries (née Brown). Myers died at the Charleston Area Medical Center in West Virginia after battling pneumonia for several months.

Myers won an NAACP Image Award for his role as the Stool Pigeon in the August Wilson play, King Hedley II. He also won the Off-Broadway AUDELCO Award for his role in the play, Fat Tuesday.

In 2005 the Appalachian Education Initiative listed Myers as one of 50 “Outstanding Creative Artists” from the State of West Virginia and featured him in their coffeetable book “Art & Soul”.
