Hello and welcome, my dear readers!

If you’re here, I guess you’re curious about the person behind this blog, so here’s something about me:

My name’s Ilaria, I’m Italian and I’ve been playing otome games since 2013.

My favorites are the darker ones, with a deep and creepy plot (like Black wolves saga or Kokuchou psychedelica), but sometimes I enjoy comedy ones too (like Glass heart princess). If you’re interested, I’ve made an otoge recommendation post to explain why I consider those games amazing!

I’ve always wanted to write reviews, since I love sharing my opinions, but it took me a few years before I decided to open this blog on November 2016: I hope you’ll find it interesting and useful, if you’re looking for advices!

I’ve traveled to Japan twice and it was an amazing experience: it’s a magical place, it feels like another world, different from any other country. Obviously, being there as a tourist or living there, is a completely different matter. But if you’re curious to know how Ikebukuro or Akihabara look like, take a look at my posts! I’ve also showed the merch I bought and explained the prices, so you can be prepared when you go there.

I’ve been in love with Japanese culture since my teenage days (which feel like ages ago, since I’m an adult now…. well, I’m still young at heart, but not for the outside word!), and I’ve started studying that beautiful language around 2009.

When I found out about otome games, I decided it was time to stop procrastinating, and learn for real! I’m not perfect at all, but at least I can play whatever I want; I wrote a post about my whole experience, with some advices for beginners who want to learn too, I hope it can inspire someone else!

Recently, I’ve started posting about another beloved hobby of mine, kpop.

I used to be a huge Super Junior, BigBang and Exo fan back in 2013 and I still love this genre now, even through good and bad times: it makes me feel excited, I always anticipate comebacks and debuts, they make my day.

I used to enjoy this hobby on my own, but recently I decided to share here my opinions about groups and songs too, so I hope I can give you good recommendations.

Well, that’s all.

This blog is basically just me writing my opinions, sharing my experiences and trying to make some friends through my hobbies.

If you want to become friends, don’t hesitate to comment or send me messages! Enjoy! 🙂
