Following closely in the footsteps of Nippon Ichi’s survival title, Firefly’s Diary – you wouldn’t think it’s scary at all looking at the cute graphics. However, unlike games where you have a whole arsenal of weapons to deal with demons and monsters, in Yowamari [A Walk in the Night] AKA Night Alone in the West, you only have a torch.
So our innocent little heroine is out walking her dog Boro but suddenly – BOOM! Her dog is run over. Nippon Ichi doesn’t hold back any punches… She returns home dragging an empty dog leash and when her big sister sees Boro missing, she decides to go out to look for it. Late in the night, she never returns and worried for her sister’s safety, our heroine braves the demon filled night in search of her sister.
Not a happy story so far that’s for sure. Continue reading
For our Ghibli Miniatuart papercraft this time we’ll be doing No. 11, a Spirited Away one which also happens to be a two star one again like the Kiki’s Delivery Service I put together the last time.

So this official visual novel sequel actually takes part just before the “true ending” in the prequel where Okabe has undone everything, back in the beta timeline. Kurisu has been murdered and he is so depressed and traumatised that he refuses to try one last time in reaching Steins Gate where World War III never happens.
This is the second papercraft I did rated at 2 stars complexity. Maybe that’s why it took an extra 2 hours to do compared to the Totoro one totaling 8 hours.
Tokyo Xanadu is your usual JRPG high school setting with students having special powers. Red tears appear around the world as demons known as Greed are trying to invade the human world.
