All good things must come to an end. By extension, that also includes things like this playthrough of
Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~ (I'll miss you most of all, tildes!), an educational visual novel from H-Game developers Overdrive that was ported to Steam by MangaGamer. I will say that this game's been quite informative; a beginner's crash course in Japanese tourist hotspots and hoary anime tropes.
We're not done yet though. Akira's threatened to take us to Japan's major port city Yokohama for our last day. Is this where I reveal the feelings I've been harboring for her? Or has that ship sailed? I'm bound to run out of sailing puns schooner or later?!
Part 07: Sayonara Yaaaaaaaay. Hey, don't you start, you'll set me off. So we start the day with Akira looking clearly exhausted and us being concerned, being the sensitive Saiyan that we are. She's immediately defensive though. This ought to be a fun day. Man, it's almost as if we're emphasizing all this for a future plot twist. (No, she doesn't have cancer.) Reaching Yokohama, Akira's in full tour guide mode. She's talking about the exciting landmarks in Yokohama's central theme park which, naturally, we don't get to see here. Must... resist... obvious... joke... parallel... playthrough's... salacious enough already... What tipped you off, Goku? Yeah, I must be psychic or something. Anyway, we get a bit more talk about Yokohama's Chinatown before Akira starts narcolepsing all over the place. No, I don't think you're boring, bipolar disorders are still a somewhat rare condition. Akira gets into a giant tizzy, runs away and we stalk her all the way back home. Bye Yokohama! I got close with that "open our borders" bit, I'll admit. Yeah, you'd think. It's not like Goku hasn't been performing thought crimes ever since he first met you two. So here's the real reason Akira was out of sorts today: She stayed up all night studying Yokohama, a city she'd never been to, just to impress Goku. Awwwww*hurk*. She was definitely an informative and cheery tour guide during the parts when she was awake. "Man, this has been such a great last day of my vacation," Goku thinks, as he apologizes to a bedroom door. But Goku's fallen head over heels because she keeps yelling at him. Tsunderes gonna tsundere. Anyway, it's tomorrow now, but since my flight leaves in the morning I might as well squeeze it all in this final update. Farewell Japan, and farewell Go! Go! Nippon! ~My First Trip to Japan~. It's been, well, not so much a blast as a dull persistent thumping noise at the back of my skull. Thanks to everyone for stopping by, and I'll see you all again for something considerably less anime next time. Well, except I'm playing Tales of the Abyss right now, so really I'm just lying through my teeth. Dewa mata! < Back to Part 6
