Sengoku Darling: Keiji Maeda Route Review!

Bishie here! Welcome back to another Sengoku Darling route review! Next up, we have Keiji Maeda! He was one of the prominent characters we were introduced to in the prologue! He manages to stop a thief from stealing our coin pouch and hands it back to us with a bright smile! Kojiro happens to know him, though he isn’t a happy camper about it!

And so, without further ado! Let me delve into Keiji’s route for all of you~!

keiiji

Kojiro, our bodyguard, doesn’t have much of a high opinion of Keiji. At first glance, it’s quite apparent that the man isn’t exactly a normal looking samurai. He wears brightly colored clothing (latest fashions even), is loud and is extremely tall!

But despite all of that, our MC still decides to allow him to escort her to Echigo! And the journey isn’t a short one, it takes several days even! Along the way, the trio stop at rest areas and places to eat! There is even a cute little short story, between the MC and Keiji! (It’s adorable! xoxo)

Anyways, the group makes it to Echigo and right off the bat Keiji proclaims that the MC is the princess! Uh oh! Guess no hiding for her! Kojiro gets mad… But what’s done is done and the MC forgives poor Keiji, who apologizes. He hadn’t meant to let his tongue slip like that and he was just being honest. That’s just the type of person he is.

The MC is introduced to everyone and then Keiji decides to take you out to see Echigo the next day!

Reading Keiji’s route felt so relaxing! He is the epitome of a gentle, doting, man. He quite literally always is smiling and wants nothing but for the MC to smile as well. Just like the MC, I forget as well that war and battles are forthcoming. (I’ve read the other routes! I know what’s up >.>;;)

You may tell yourself that there is a ‘but’ coming when I continue to spout how happy and bright he is. Well there IS another side to him, BUT, it’s not at all what I had expected.

All this sweet, kind, bear of a man wants is peace. Yup, he doesn’t want to fight anymore! (though he doesn’t tell you that in so many words…) His dejected look when he tells you this, even brings the MC to be bold and hold his hands, as she wishes for the same thing, so that he wouldn’t have to fight anymore. (You go girl! ^_^)

“… love at first sight…” 

Just as the quote says, this route was truly all about the love the pair shared! Honestly, all the fighting and stuff took a back seat to their romance! Not like the other routes, where the guys would come back wounded, or had important strategies to plan, etc. This romance bloomed early and Keiji went straight to telling the MC his true feelings.

keiji 5

I loved how this man wasted no time in telling the MC his feelings. He is a man who speaks from the heart and goes with his gut. I respected that the most about him. He didn’t have much as a childhood. He left his family and was lucky enough to be taken in and become a respected warlord.

Well, with that being said. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows in this route! (sorry ’bout that ^^;)

The main conflict is that our MC needs to choose a side. Either Kai and or Echigo. After she chooses a side, she has to return home! Once she returns home, she has to find a husband and conceive an heir!

Even if she chooses Echigo (Keiji’s side), she still needs to return home! But Keiji can’t follow her! Or can he? (This is where I started to tear up…

keiji 4

Wanna know more? Hehe, well play the route for yourself silly! The game is available now on IOS and or Android! The routes are only 4.99 each!

All in all, Keiji won me over to his side!

But Yukimaru remains the true MVP!! (that man’s sad ending, got me balling like a baby!)

I simply adored Keiji’s attitude, his endearing smile, his constant knack for making myself as a reader smile and even his keen eye for beautiful things~! He is a genuinely sweet, gentle man and wanted nothing but to have the MC smile for him, truly. Even though 95% of his route, she was crying! (uh oh~!)

keiji2

Yukimaru and Keiji were both prominent figures in the prologue, and both are openers for their regions, so if your undecided upon which regions of guys to choose from, then these two routes I say play first. It gives you a general idea of each of the characters you will be meeting. Which is nice that the routes continue to let you examine the other characters you have a chance to date later on~!


Two Routes Left…


        So now that I’ve finished Keiji’s route, that leaves me with only two left! Uh oh! But it looks like MORE characters will coming to this game very soon!

JiyA55Gw

So I guess I got my work cut out for me! 😄

ALSO~! SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! 

My Birthday is coming up and as an early birthday present, i was gifted an Itunes gift card, to which I was specifically told to buy a certain game.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Guess I don’t have much of a choice now do I!? But do I look like I’m complaining? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Shall We Date?: Teen Samurai -I’ll be back my love-

This will be the next game I’ll be doing reviews on, once I finish up with the available character routes in Sengoku Darling! I am so excited! I can’t wait!! xoxox

giphyBishie Out~! xoxoxo

Bishie Is Back & Ready For Reviews! Movies, Games, Otome & MORE!

If you don’t follow me on Twitter, that’s fine! But I had a special announcement for everyone! I will be making my full time gig here on WordPress with reviews on games and movies! If you follow me, then you know I write various reviews on things I love!

stole my heart

This will continue and I will be ready and roaring on Monday with a new review coming out. Idk what it will be on, but it will be on either Beauty and the Beast 2017, LOZ BOTW, or something else that I love! I’ll surprise! Maybe I’ll start reviewing anime! Who knows, but writing is my passion and I want to continue that!

tumblr_n2ym9wkols1t9ug8yo2_500

ANOTHER announcement is that I will be continuing my fan-fiction and or original novel series on my AO3 page!

You are probably wondering why I even stopped in the first place! Well that was because I started a YouTube page, and of course that was wonderful! Amazing even! I had so much fun! But… It was so much work and sadly, YouTube just isn’t going to pay the bills. Writing doesn’t of course, at least not now, but it doesn’t take all my time. And well, it’s my passion.

Guys, Queen Bishie is ready and roaring to start on reviews and my writing again! xoxoxoxoxoxo Love you guys and I’ll see you soon~!

Quickie Otome Review: ReBirthday Song

I’ve been on an otome binge lately, so honestly, I didn’t feel much like taking time out of that, to write! ^^;; But since I already finished Sengoku Darling (all the routes out so far), Nightshade (which was AMAZING~!! Hanzo is bae ❤), & Black Wolves Saga -Bloody Nightmare- (omg… Guillian is best boi!!!!)  I decided I would write a quickie review ON-

ReBirthday Song~++

hxpbI9-h

 This game was the first one I started on my otome binge! And I don’t regret it in the slightest! I honestly didn’t know what to expect from it. I went in, completely blind. I came out, ABSOLUTELY satisfied. I was lucky to pick up and play this game, thanks to the lovely translators who worked on the English patch! (I have no skill when it comes to reading Japanese T_T) If you are interested in playing it for yourself, you will have to buy the game off of Amazon or Ebay, and you can use this patch to help you play it in English!

        Oh man… Where to begin with this title. I guess, from the beginning? I don’t want to spoil the main meat of the story (or the routes), since part of the fun is figuring it out for yourself! The revelations are to good for me to spoil them, so I wont!

I can say, without a doubt, there is replay value in this game! Once you finish a route, extra “thought” content unlocks in each of the five guys routes, giving his perspective on certain situations that occurred! (SO CUTE!) Also, you get the chance to unlock both the Rebirth End & Shinigami End, which is a win-win in my book! These endings would both be considered good, depending on your viewpoint! I can’t recommend this game enough!

So I’ll  keep this short and sweet~ ❤

maxresdefault

You, as the MC, start off alone and confused. However, you do remember hearing a familiar voice. Just who does this voice belong too? What is it trying to tell you?

Anyways, you wake and meet a a talking owl! This talking owl, with a monocle and everything, whisks you away and takes you to a special castle. This castle is a school and your future home base throughout the entire game, save for the occasional moments in other areas! 

     It is here, the owl, who happens to be the Headmaster of the school, informs you that you are in fact dead and that your soul, rather then passing on to Heaven, stays in the Netherworld. So of course, your next bet is to become a Shinigami! Because, well, that’s what the school does of course. Trains Shinigami! (think reapers~!)

     So you agree, because what other choice do you have? And then, some time passes. You learn that in the course of only like a month or two, the MC isn’t doing so hot in school! In fact, she is doing horribly. She doesn’t pay attention very well, she isn’t getting good grades at all and her favorite subject is, well, sleeping & lunch! SIGN ME UP, BECAUSE THAT IS ME 24/7! #relatable

In order to become a full fledged Shinigami, like the handsome men pictured above (Zen & Rikka), you have to pass a test and be paired with a fellow partner! If you fail the test, well you are NOT getting a partner! And you do not become a Shinigami. Our MC is in turmoil over this, but she has high hopes anyway! Maybe she’ll pass? Maybe!? Well, despite Zen and Rikka’s support… SHE FAILS!! T_T

     THUS, our MC fails so horribly, she is placed into a special supplementary class where she meets our 5 romance routes! Four out of the five are open to play, though! The last route, Nami-senpai’s is unlocked, AFTER, you finish the other routes!

The order in which you finish these routes is somewhat important, since one particular route could ruin it for the zinger at the end! But i will say, each guy is amazing! 

I suggest starting off with either Kairi or Yoru first, since their good introductory characters! Also, the common route is pretty long and extremely good! I simply adored the MC in this game! She is so spunky and kind! She may be lacking in self-confidence, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to push forward and help others! (Seriously, the amount of times i cried for that girl… T_T) And the guys are supppper supportive! Gosh, are they so supportive and cool! 

I must insist you do AME’S route LAST! I felt his route divulged the most when it came to dropping those hint bombs on the true story underneath the surface, so if you don’t want to get spoiled early, I suggest going for the green haired cutie last!

As I stated above, each of these routes is fairly long and has three different endings you can obtain. ReBirth Ending, Shinigami Ending & The BAD END! With both the Rebirth & Shinigami Endings, you get CG’S, and there will be no CG’s for the BAD ENDS! (yay!!)

No seriously, YAY!, I particularity hate games that force you to play the BAD END, in order to obtain a new CG! With this game, NOPE, you get CG’s only for the two other endings that are TO ME, considered GOOD ENDINGS! xoxox IT’S A WIN-WIN! You not only get to replay for extra content, but you get ANOTHER good end! It’s GENIUS! xoxox

QZeEmBjp

Ayyyyyyy, once you finished with all the other four routes, NAMI-SENPAI is unlocked! So start your game over and pick the new choices that appear for his route~! AND GOOD LUCK!

Should You Bring Tissues?

I never considered ReBirthday Song to be tragic or painful! Not in the slightest! Was it sad? Yes, it was, but not the type of sadness that makes me wish I never opened the game up in the first place!! I found the story endearing, heartfelt and it made me cry from happiness, frustration and empathy towards the characters.

As I continued to read, I started to really grow attached to all of them! Even Yuyu, the supposed comedy relief, side kick! Each character made me just wanna scoop them up and hug them! Their lines bounced off of another perfectly and the MC was apart of that! IN FACT, she was the glue that bound them all together! AND THAT IS JUST MAGICAL TO READ~!

394oX0FA

Do I recommend picking up and playing ReBirthday song? YES, please, do it now! The soundtrack by the way, really clinched it for me! The flow of the music went well with what was going on and I was admirably impressed! If not for the story, at least play it for the soundtrack! (seriously, play it for the story though… >.>;;)

giphy

Awww, thank you guys for sticking with me! I know I should write a lot more… BUT THE GAMES!! D: THE GAMES CALL ME~! xoxoxo   

My next piece should be on either Nightshade or Charming Empire, HECK MAYBE EVEN Black Wolves Saga! I’m not sure! I know I have to finish Sengoku Darling Routes Reviews, but just give me some time! ^^;; ALRIGHT,  cya guys next time! I’M BISHIE and I’ll see ya lata~! 

BISHIE OUT~! XOXOXO

The Full Patch is here!

Hanataba Translation

Hello, everyone. I’m happy to announce that the English Patch for Ayakashi Gohan is now complete!

20-ayakashi-gohan-oomori-2

You can download the English patch files here, and the image+menu translations file here. Instructions are included in the readme text file. If the links don’t work for you, do tell me so I can upload them on other downloading sites. Also, menus are only about… 40% or 50% translated, so do tell if you need any help in anything.

Downloading both files is recommended to experience the game as its whole, but if you have a slow connection and can’t download huge files, you can just download the English patch file, and I’ll send you the image+menu translations files in .jpgs and .pngs, provided if you contact me about it. Okay? 😀

I would like to thank each and every one of you; the ones who helped translating, translation-checking, proofreading, re-inserting, script…

Sengoku Darling: Sarutobi Sasuke’s Route Review

Welcome back to another Sengoku Darling review! Today I’ll be covering the delicious, adorable cupcake, known as Sasuke! I genuinely fell in love with this boy! Even his tsun nature was endearing! I also loved the fact that he is a ninja! So without further ado, here we go~!

6cNIEUuN

Following after the prologue, the MC decides to go to Kai. In order to do that, we have to find Yukimaru. Well we find him, but he happens to be talking to someone, who quickly tries to hide. Luckily our bodyguard is pretty darn sharp, and manages to weedle out our next romanacable character from the bushes!

In steps Sasuke Sarutobi, our golden haired ninja, who wants to know who we are. Well Yukimaru makes up some excuse for us, but it’s pretty clear Sasuke isn’t buying it. In fact, he’s upright rude at first. Also, him and the MC’s bodyguard, Kojiro, start going at it. Haha… Not THAT way! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

In the end, our first meeting with Sasuke isn’t exactly peaches and cream. In fact, not a few scenes later, Yukimaru is assigning Sasuke as your own personal bodyguard and Sasuke throws a fit! Definitely not a happy camper. Even starts a tussle with Kojiro! >_<

sasuke1

Well, the next day comes and the MC takes to her new role as being the quote on quote maid, but Yukimaru (who still loves you by the way!!!) doesn’t want the MC to get her hands dirty. Soooo, the MC offers to sew and he agrees with that!

While your sewing, Sasuke comes up and surprises you. He apologizes about the other day and even gives you flowers! Now remember, he doesn’t know your a princess. In fact, he thinks your just a commoner, like himself! Anyways, you two really hit it off and from then on, he keeps bringing you flowers and the both of you, continue to spend time together.

sasuke2

It gets really funny when Kojiro steps in sometimes and riles up Sasuke. I really liked how their routine bounced off one another and made things way more fun. Especially seeing how Sasuke reacts towards being called a ‘monkey’.

Time passes, and Yukimaru goes off to a battle. leaving Sasuke to protect you. Also Kojiro leaves for the battlefield as well! So it’s practically just the two of you left.

This open ups a new scenario that takes place outside the manor, where the MC almost gets kidnapped and Sasuke rushes to her safety! All the while, bumping into his arch-nemesis! UH OH!

sasuke3

Wanna know more? Well, Sasuke’s route is now available! You can download it on iTunes or the Google Play store! I highly recommend playing his route! His and Yukimaru’s! *swoon*

Sasuke was the third route I played,  and his was refreshing, since it opened up new scenery to me! The last two routes, always left me in the manor, so to be out in the forest and meeting new characters was awesome to me!

sasuke4

As a ninja, Sasuke is adept at many things. Medicine, field work, etc! He had it tough and he even explains as to why that was. Which i appreciated story wise. It wasn’t boring in the slightest! I really enjoyed learning more about this boy! His love for you is so endearing and heartfelt! I had a goofy smile on my face the whole time reading.

tumblr_inline_nuy3rf8Osy1tq6w69_500How was his route? AWESOME! 

But that was everyone’s route so far! I am really enjoying this game! I just wish I had more time to play! Next up though, will be either Naoe or Nagao! I’m not sure! I think I’ll do a coin toss! : D

Alright guys! I’ll see you next review!

BISHIE OUT~! xoxoxoxoxoxo

Sengoku Darling: Shingen Takeda

Imagine your sitting reading a book somewhere and then suddenly, your name is being shouted out, over and over… AND OVER! Are you imagining it? Good, because that was half of Shingen’s route! The guy wants to know where you are at all times and you better not be with ANY man!

This is Shingen’s route in a nutshell! Now, don’t get the wrong idea. The route isn’t bad because of this! Not in the slightest. In fact, it’s pretty damn endearing, since the guy thinks of only you all the time. Hell, I’d think he was yandere, if he wasn’t going off making sure his people and or his land was safe from enemies. He is a really awesome guy! Did I say that? No? Well, HE IS AWESOME!

7IqJ3dpeAfter the initial prologue, instead of going with Yukimaru (my bias~<3), you end up just wanting Yuki to take you to Kai. So of course he agrees, because the boy loves you~! But in order to stay, you have to meet Lord Shingen first, because that’s the big boss! Anyways, you agree. Hiding the fact you are a princess and why you are traveling in the first place.

Oh snap! Shingen takes a fancy to the MC, right off the bat! Look at poor Yukimaru’s face! (pic above) Didn’t see that coming! So instead of becoming the assistant to Yuki, which was the plan from the beginning, Shingen up and decides the MC will be HIS maid instead~! Fun times! NO, seriously!

G-sQ8M04The two literally have fun times! Shingen hardly ever treats MC like a maid. I mean at first he does, but then after like a day, he up and decides to take the MC places and hang out! He takes the MC on so many dates, that even Yukimaru is like ‘… what is going on?’ Poor guy! Totes C BLOCKED! Ouch~!

But alas, drama always has to ensue! With all these happy times between the main pair, what with their dates, Shingen constantly giving her gifts and doting on her day and night, the other servants start to get jealous! (remember, she is suppose to be a maid!) They get so jealous they trash her room! Ouch! Talk about green with envy >_<!

Oh no! What will happen next! Well, I’m not ruining it! >: )

I adored this route! In fact, I’ve adored all the routes I’ve read! The characters are entertaining and their quirks set them apart from one another. I even enjoy  how in each route, each of the other characters continue to make an appearance!

PgWzYX_a

Shingen is a great man, and or leader. He has high hopes and ambitions, he is even a hard worker as well! The extra stories even delve into that particular problem. Which is awesome to see side characters being given more character development, as they are portrayed more then just, well, SIDE CHARACTERS!

I insist you buy all the routes in Sengoku Darling! I sure am! Sasuke’s review is next! I can’t wait to get to him! I adored that cupcake!

Until next time~! This has been Bishie and I will see you next time!! xoxoxox

Sengoku Darlings: Yukimura’s Route Review

I often hear the childhood friend in otome titles getting bashed on. They don’t a good rep, just because, well… Their the childhood friend! It is because of this biased I hear going around, that I give more love to the childhood friend trope character. And honestly, it wasn’t hard for this character, Sanada Yukimura.

yukimara

The description for him paints him as the Yandere/Twisted character. The story behind how he came to be this way, was thankfully explained in his route and made me appreciate him even more! He shows his yandere side only when threatened with the heroine potentially leaving him, or someone else taking her away! His twisted side comes out, only when he is doing his job.

 

When it comes to the heroine, oh my gosh, he is so sweet. >_< And (spoiler…) he cries so much, when he gets so damn happy, it’s the cutest thing! Yukimura has struggled his whole life and during his long struggle, he has never forgotten the heroine, or their promise to one day marry her. There is such a cute story behind a handkerchief he gives to the heroine!

xwraT5sA

I enjoyed Yukimura’s route, I loved his story coming together and the messages he gave me after the end of every chapter. I even enjoyed how possessive he got with us.  When the heroine is indecisive about either staying with him or not, he just goes full yandere on her!

75nMQrLG

The heroine is unsure of his intentions, since a lot of politics goes along with her position there. But after this scene, she gets time to contemplate, even has a chance to escape! (Thanks to her loyal bodyguard) But she doesn’t and ends up understanding that what she is feeling is love! And Yukimura CRIES! (because he is so damn happy!) 

I was just going to read a few chapters here and there, but the entire route sucked me right in! And the background music wasn’t so bad either! I enjoyed so much reading Yukimura’s story, I was glad I chose him first! He may have been the childhood friend, but it was established, that the guy has grown up and become a different person, though he still loves and cherishes the heroine with all his being.

Afterall… He never stopped thinking about her!!

tumblr_inline_nuy3rf8Osy1tq6w69_500I am definitely going to be reading more routes for this game! I will also be doing all his endings, since we get new messages from him and even CG’s! I am excited to do the extra stories for him as well! I am not sure who I will choose next, but I will be doing a review for each guy eventually!

Thanks guys! This has been Bishie, with your otome update & I’ll see you next time~!

Bishie OUT~!

Otome Sails To The West~!

We are three months into the year of 2017 and April is almost here! Which means… OTOME! Handsome men! TONS OF KABADON! And scenes that will make us all go ‘hot damn’ and ‘awwwwww’. I’ve at least said both of those phrases many times whilst playing an otoge title! (Coooome on, you’ve said it too!)

2017 really is the year of the otome and thanks to my sisters on LINE, along with otome slueth @Kalin_Nyanya, and social media! I’ve been keeping up with all the upcoming otome titles that are soon to release!

And boy… There are A LOT!

tumblr_inline_nuy3rf8Osy1tq6w69_500So much otoge! Don’t get me wrong! I want dozens more, but look at what we have coming out now! And not just by the usual localizers, nope, indie devs are coming out with quality otome titles for us in the west as well! It’s just so amazing! We’ve gone from single digit releases to, NOW, double digit releases! That’s AWESOME!

This year, not only are titles being released on the PS VITA, but the PC as well. Lots of titles on the PC, now that I count them in my head. And I want to quickly thank every one of you who pitches in their money to buy localized otome titles! I’m serious! Thank you! By not pirating these titles, you are telling the devs and the localization companies we want MORE! And are willing to spend our cash to get MORE!

tumblr_nmrqe1Yyf71tal76io1_500

PLZ DO NOT PIRATE LOCALIZED OTOME TITLES ON THE PC! do not do it! You’re probably thinking, ‘well, it won’t hurt in the long run’. IT DOES! Save up your money! Wait for a birthday, a holiday, or start mowing lawns if you don’t have a job! But if you TRULY love otome and want more, PLZ DO NOT PIRATE THESE GAMES.

Popcorn Horror: The Ring Trilogy!! Spoiler Free Review!

Yes, the title is correct. The Ring movie, from 2002, is officially a trilogy! Rings, is a movie being released today that is the third installment for the American horror franchise, The Ring. And boy, am I fan of the last two!

I will being see Rings on Saturday, so be prepared for my separate review on that, but this post will be covering why I adore the first two Ring movies and why you should see them! If you have seen them already, feel free to chime in with your own comments on whether you enjoyed or disliked the films. 

theringpostereAhhhhhh, nostalgia~  The 2002 release of this movie was met with very positive reviews. In fact, the budget for this movie was 48 million and the box office raked in 249.3 million! Woah~!  The Ring wasn’t a Hollywood original though, in fact, it was a remake of the Japanese movie, Ring. (Most definitely worth a viewing too!)

The premise of the movie, without spoiling it for those who haven’t seen it yet, is that there is a certain VHS tape you are never to watch. And if you do watch this VHS tape, you have only 7 days to live! (cue scary music)

Now I know your what your probably thinking! A VHS? Seriously? What’s a VHS? I know, I’m a dinosaur! But VHS’s way back when were like Blu Ray’s now, but with way lower quality and horrible rewind and fast forward options. (seriously… we have it easy now…)

Anyways, back in 2002 the very thought of a sinister, VHS tape that could kill you within a week, with only 1 viewing was absolutely terrifying. And the movie The Ring, showcased a little girl, named Samara, who would come after you!

Yeah, I know… Pretty creepy stuff! Even now, it’s still terrifying to stare at the picture above and not envision that image coming to life to come crawling out of the screen to get you! BUT, Samara has rules! Seven days! She rings you up on your phone, no joke, and tells you that you got seven days!

This is what I love about Horror movies! RULES! And The Ring had a great, teeth biting rule! You only had seven days to live after you viewed the tape! What the hell are you going to do during that time!? Binge watch a season of Gilmore Girls? Rob a bank? Live out some insane fantasy!? Or… Would you be like the main character in The Ring, and try to save your own life?

The Ring movie was the perfect blend of scares, eerie music, eerie sound effects and chills to make this a MUST SEE! You can not say you never seen The Ring, it’s classic! Spawning comedy parodies, having the phone call from Samara quoted countless of times and even gaining a huge cult following! And if you haven’t seen The Ring yet, well what are you waiting for? Go ahead, go see it! I’ll wait…

No seriously! I will. Go, shoo~ Come back when you finish!

Back? Ok, let’s continue!

Now The Ring spawned a sequel, quite ingeniously titled, The Ring Two! (Would have loved to be the fly on the wall for that brainstorming session~)

mv5bmty2odc2ntq2of5bml5banbnxkftztywnza4otu3-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_This one is a direct sequel from The Ring, starring the same cast of characters, on another hell bending adventure to get Samara, off their tails! The damn VHS tape continues to plague them, even when we thought the threat had ended. Now, I don’t want my review of these movies to be spoiler-ish of the endings and plot. All I can, is that karma always comes to bite you in the butt~! And Samara wants to end what had begun in the first movie! (Oh… BRING IT SAMARA!)

Riding off the success from the first one, The Ring Two opens right into the action! No seriously, we open only five minutes in with someone getting to view the cursed VHS tape! I gotta say, the opening scene for The Ring Two, is something my friends and I always end up discussing the most. In my opinion, it sets up the movie very well, and hooked me, making me remembered why I adored the first Ring movie.

Naomi Watts, plays the protagonist, Rachel Keller, in both movies and she does a extremely good job, in playing the horror movie heroine. Her screams, expressions and simple cues, were delivered very nicely and I was never thrown off by cheesiness or over acting.

Also, David Dorfman plays her son, Aidan Keller. For me, it was hard to find child actors, that could pull off convincing roles in horror movies, without coming off as annoying. However, this wasn’t the case and the academy agreed with me, because David Dorfman was nominated for Best Actor for his role in The Ring!

I think the pair worked well together and it showed in both movies.  I never found Aidan to be annoying whenever he was given screen time, and when Rachel was beside him and taking care of him, I believed that was her son. The immersion was there, and I give the actress and actor credit for playing their roles well. In both movies.

Should you watch The Ring movies before watching Rings (2017)? Yes! If you haven’t, PLEASE DO! Their great movies to sit around with friends, with popcorn and pillows and view together. Or, you could view them alone… IF YOU DARE~! Do they hold up in today’s standards? Well, the imagery for the cursed VHS is still creepy and rather jarring, but I don’t think those born after 2000 would be scared of a VHS tape. However… If it went digital!!!! (cue scary music… AGAIN)
