*On hiatus until 11/7* Two sisters who have been playing Otome games, both individually and together, for 10+ years. We're always discussing the games we're playing and different Otoge related subjects anyways, so we decided to turn it into a podcast! Disclaimer: None of the games or characters we are discussing belong to us. Please don’t sue us.
 
Welcome to Reel History! On this podcast we talk about historical movies and television shows, anything that claims to be based on a true story, and we check – how bad did they mess it up? What was life actually like during that time period? That’s why we’re here – to separate the real history from the Reel History! Hosted by two Irish history buffs and a Swede who doesn’t know anything about history. Part of the Shows What You Know podcast network. Follow us @Reel_History and don’t forget t ...

Episode 50! And this time we are discussing new research into the ancient origins of the Japanese. An article in ScienceAdvances proposes a new tripartite origin for Japanese people, and some are saying that it will require us to rewrite the early history of the archipelago.

Then there are the divisions of Kibi and choosing a Crown Prince and successor. And then we talk about Homuda Wake after his death, and…
 
Sisi is the REAL main character and Lupin is actually fairly useless. (You're not wrong, but you're also not right. -Vka) Well then maybe you should write these descriptions! (Nevermind, you can be right. -Vka) The sisters compare Code: Realize the anime to Code: Realize the game and Vki only pisses Vka off with her opinions once. Enjoy. Games disc…
 
It’s pretty safe to say that the Main Character of an Otoge is one of the most important aspects of a game. Without them it would just be...a bunch of dudes running around doing things like, I dunno, murdering people usually. So today is all about our favorite MCs and why we love them! Come join us as Vka and Vki discover that they absolutely, 100%…
 
This episode continues our look at some of the figures surrounding Homuda Wake and the royal family. In this case we look at one of the few people in the Chronicles from this period that we can see referenced by name in the excerpts from the Baekje Annals. Was he just another court noble? Or was he perhaps something more. For more information, chec…

Vki wanted to call this "Yelp for vampires" but that is both overly silly and an inaccurate description of how we're doing these ratings. Enjoy 25 minutes of us being biased! Games discussed: Obey Me!, Diabolik Lovers (no spoilers) None of the games or characters discussed belong to us. Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/OtomeShimai)…

In a shrine in Nara prefecture there is an odd sword with seven "branches" whose existence would seem to confirm some of the stories out of the Nihon Shoki, and at the very least demonstrates a link between Yamato and one of the peninsular states.
