    Eat everything and become stronger! An all-new dungeon survival strategy RPG!

    Shikabanegurai no Boukenmeshi is a dungeon survival tactical RPG where you lead a stranded group of adventurers out of a dungeon by gathering food and materials.

    The Basics

    Story Summary

    A group of adventurers end up stranded in a dungeon that they heard was “for beginners.” When their thirst and hunger were at their peak, they come across a corpse of a giant dead monster.

    Once the group manages to escape starving to death, they look for a way out. Reach for the surface by eating delicious things, weird things, and everything in between.

    Create Your Own Adventurers

    You can change the hairstyle, face, voice, job, and more of your adventurers. There are a number of jobs from Swordsman to Mage, Cook, Unemployed, and more. Form a party of four and challenge the dungeon.

    Adventure Foods

    Using the ingredients you find in the dungeon, you can cook “adventure foods” that will strengthen your adventurers. In battle, ingredients can also be fed to enemies to weaken them.

    ■ New Information

    Strike a Pose with Your Characters

    Not only you can edit your character’s faces and hairstyles, you can customize their character icons and cut-ins. Once you edit your character’s expressions, poses, and camera settings, those settings will be reflected in-game.

    —Settings for the Poses and facial expressions can be changed at any time in the adventure hub.

    Swing Your Sword, Eat Your Meals and Hone Your Skills!

    There are two types of skills. Battle skills activated during combat and passive skills that are always active and useful both in battle and exploration.

    —Bedrock Flip: A powerful battle skill that can be obtained by accumulating experience with axes.

    —Improved Calorie Recovery: A passive skill that grants you more calories when you eat meals or ingredients. Prevents starving.


    You can select a job for your adventurers at the start of the game. Each job has different stats, but can also learn different skills. Whether you focus on combat, dungeon crawling, cooking, or so on, choose the job that matches your play stlyle.


    A defensive job skilled with the sword. Fit for the frontlines of the party.

    “Quick Slash” is a sword battle skill that quickly comes around in the order of actions.


    An offensive job. While lacking in defense, it is able to use four elemental spells that can exploit enemy weaknesses.

    “Fire Spear” is a fire magic attack that pierces through three tiles on the grid.


    While not fit for combat, cooks have high cooking skills. And while they may not be one for the frontlines, they can shine as the party’s healer.

    “Low-Quality Food Affinity” is a passive skill that can reduce the disadvantages of eating low-quality foods.

    Search for the Ultimate Gear with Extra Skills!

    Weapons and armor can be obtained randomly from treasure chests within the dungeon. Gear with the same name can sometimes have different skills and skill levels. The higher the rarity, the more and greater skills tend to be attached to the gear, making it a critical part of enhancing your adventure experience. Open many chests to find the ultimate gear with extra skills.

    —Skills attached to gear are random, but the gear’s rarity greatly affects this.


    There are four types of weapons: swords, axes, spears, and bows. You can also fight with your hands by not equipping a weapon. Attack range, attack power, and the skills you can acquire differ with each weapon.

    —Bows have a long attack range, but use an arrow when attacking. Make sure to craft arrows before battle.


    There are three types of armor: head armor, body armor, and accessories. These affect your statuses such as your defense, as well as enhance your adventurers by possessing different skills.

    Flip the Tides with “Corpse Consume”!

    “Corpse Consume” is a command that restores your HP by eating fallen enemies or allies, and also activates a special skill that will only be active during that battle. How much HP you restore and which skills activate depend on the corpse you eat, but it can turn the tides of battle. When surrounded by strong enemies, make sure to consider the skills you can activate by consuming a corpse.

    —By consuming the corpse of a Sadeye, the skill “Focused Shot” activates.

    —Since “Focused Shot” is active, your attack will be a Critical Hit.

    —Mandoragoras have the ability to attack twice. By consuming their corpses, your adventurers can use that ability as well.

    Create Advantages by Surprise Attacks and Chains!


    Running into monsters while exploring will trigger a battle. But if you touch them from behind without being noticed, you can start the battle in an “Advantage” state. In this state, everyone in your party can take action before the enemy.

    This is reversed when you enter battle by an enemy running into you from behind. Beware of your surroundings to avoid being caught off guard.

    —Chain (Link Attacks)

    When you attack an enemy that is within another party character’s attack range, there is a fixed chance it will become a link attack. Your other party members will follow up with an additional attack.

    Bows have weaker attack power than other weapons, so its true strength can be seen in Chains.

    —By taking the initiative, you can significantly reduce the amount of damage you take. Always aim to start battle in the “Advantage” state.

    —The cut-ins set in the Pose Editor will appear on screen when a link attack is activated.

    Survival Tips

    —#1. Komugi-modoki-mizuabu (fake flour fly) can be turned into an ingredient resembling flour. It may widen the range of foods you can cook.

    —#2. Ingredients have an expiration date. Their effects will lower as their freshness decreases. In order to prolong their freshness, you can try different methods such as freezing or smoking them.

    —#3. Feed expired ingredients to your enemies.

    —#4. There are mysterious altars within the dungeon. Offering magical stones to them may bring change to your adventurers and monsters.

    —#5. In volcanic regions, not only do you need to watch out for the heat and dehydration, there will also be dangerous lava flowing throughout. Make sure you are prepared.

    —#7. You can lure monsters by setting traps. Try crafting them once you have the ingredients.

    —#8. During the night, monsters become more dangerous. Even monsters you were able to defeat with ease during the day may become a threat at night. Also, being on the same floor for too long attracts powerful monsters. Know when to move on.

    ■ New Information

    One Mistake and You Lose it All!? Thrilling Dungeon Exploration

    When the leader of your adventure party dies, you will lose the levels you gained and the ingredients you collected. Unlocked recipes and equipment will carry over, but you will have to start again and challenge the dungeon from the beginning.

    Exploring the dungeon is a process of repeated trial and error. Utilize your fatal mistakes as food for your next dungeon dive.

    —It is easy to gather plants and wood in this multi-floor forest inhabited by numerous plant-type monsters.

    —Monster House: As you ascend dungeon floors, a large number of monsters may surround you. Utilize your knowledge, experience, and items to cut your way through and survive.

    The Monsters that Inhabit the Dungeon

    Dungeons are inhabited by a variety of monsters. From time to time, you may encounter special types labeled “Elite” or “Unique.” Since these monsters have different traits and resistances from normal types, you might get hurt if you act reckless… But you can gain plenty of experience points by defeating them, and they have a higher drop rate for rare ingredients, so take them on if you think you have it in you.

    —Soldier: A lizard monster that attacks in groups.

    —Mercenary: The Unique form of a Soldier. It has the ability to increase the defense of other monsters of the same type.

    Also, by going far enough into the dungeon, you will encounter and battle a boss monster that guards the altar. Defeating this boss will make your adventure a little easier, as the altar can be used as a starting point for the party.

    Boil or Grill It! Learn Skills by Eating Adventure Foods!

    “Adventure Foods” are made by combining ingredients found in the dungeon. They replenish calories, boost stats, and can even be used to learn new skills.

    You can also make completely different dishes using the same ingredients depending on how you cook them.

    Failure is a key part of cooking. Try not to follow the recipe exactly all the time.

    —By “grilling” two types of meat, you will make “roasted meat.” This is said to be the original meat dish and can be made from the start of your adventure.

    —By “frying” the same ingredients, you will make kushikatsu. While it recovers less HP than grilled meat, it allows you to learn more skills.

    Even when cooking the same dish, its perfection level will vary depending on the ingredients used and the cooking ability of the party member that made it. The more perfect the dish, the higher its recovery and ability boost rate.

    Save Your Eyes from Low-Quality Dishes! “Safety Mode” Disguises Its Appearance!

    Since Shikabanegurai no Boukenmeshi is all about surviving in a dungeon, you will inevitably come across some revolting ingredients or dishes with a strong visual impact. For those who have a phobia of insects or disgusting things, but want to play this game, there is an option to turn on or off “censors” that black out the stuff that might be hard to look at.

    —Safety Mode – Off

    —Safety Mode – On

    Various Difficulty Options from Sweet to Spicy

    While you can choose your difficulty level at the beginning of the game, the hardcore gameplay will not change—when you die, you start again from level 1. There are four difficulty options, from “Easy” in which you can obtain a wealth of ingredients, to “Nightmare” in which death always follows. You can change the difficulty level mid-game.

    —Good to play even if you are bad at games! Choose the difficulty level that suits you.

    Pay Attention to the Flavor Text!

    All items—ingredients and recipes included—feature flavor text containing various information that offer a glimpse into the game’s world. Why not snack on it during your adventure?

    —“Insect Bread” instead of “Steamed Bread”? What in the world is this made out of…? (Editor’s Note: Both “Insect Bread” and “Steamed Bread” are read as “Mushipan” in Japanese.)

    Survival Tips

    —#1. If your adventurers are fatigued, they will not be able to unleash their full strength and may fall to enemies they would normally defeat with ease.

    —#2. You may encounter a monster with a green, fruit-like head during your adventure. Be careful as its stats may differ from normal monsters.

    —#3. The dish known as kushikatsu seems to have been passed down from culture to culture.

    —#4. Food can be “processed” at any time by cutting it up, grilling it, and so on. This changes its effects, so be sure to try out various forms of processing.

    Eat everything and become stronger! An all-new dungeon survival strategy RPG!

    Shikabanegurai no Boukenmeshi is a dungeon survival tactical RPG where you lead a group of adventurers who are stranded, out of a dungeon by gathering food and materials.

    Takehito Harada and Nippon Ichi software deliver a new strategy RPG!

    Character design is by Takehito Harada, who is also the character designer for Disgaea series, Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk, and The Witch and the Hundred Knight.

    Development is by Nippon Ichi software, developer of the Disgaea series, Phantom Brave, Soul Cradle and the World Eaters, and other strategy RPGs.


    “Stranded in a dungeon!? Escape while fighting your hunger and thirst!”

    A group of adventurers end up stranded in a dungeon that they heard was “for beginners.” When their thirst and hunger were at their peak, they come across a corpse of a giant dead monster.

    Once the group manages to escape starving to death, they look for a way out. Reach for the surface by eating delicious things, weird things, and everything in between.


    Create your own adventurer!

    Your adventurers end up stranded inside the dungeon’s “sealed place,” which has been known to be where new adventurers head to prove their worth.

    You can change the appearance of your adventurers at the start of the game. You can create up to four characters. Once you have formed a party of up to four characters, head off to your adventure!

    What you can do in the character creator.

    At the beginning of the game you can change the hair, face, voice, and job of your character. This can be also changed during the game by crafting and using certain items.

    Jobs can rage from Swordsman, which specializes in sword combat; Cook, which can bring variety to your survival foods; and Unemployed, which house infinite possibilities.

    Characters will acquire different skills and status growths, so finding your favorite combination is part of the fun.

    ■ System: Survival – Dungeon Diving x Survival

    Survive in the dungeon!

    You can freely move around the map, gathering plants and minerals, as well as fight monsters to obtain their meat. The deeper you dive into the dungeon, the stronger the monsters will become, but the better the materials you can find.

    Your biggest enemy is “calories” and “hydration”?

    Exploring can mean finding useful materials for continuing your adventure, but depending on the moves you make, you will use up your “calories” and “hydration.” Once your calories and hydration reach a critical state, you will have a hard time fighting. Fighting monsters and eating them, and eating and exploring—make sure you have a balanced adventurer’s diet!

    The key to your adventure is camping.

    Whenever you proceed to the next floor in a dungeon, you can take a rest. Ready yourself for the enemies ahead by cooking with the materials you gathered and upgrading your weapons.

    ■ System: Battle – Eat, Feed, and Procure Ingredients!

    Survival x Strategy RPG

    A fusion between survival gameplay of living inside a harsh environment and Simulation RPG gameplay of leading and training your units!

    Whenever you touch a monster on the map, it will seamlessly transition into battle. Battles are carried out on a grid-based strategy RPG system. Turns will play out according to whoever has the most speed on the battlefield. Calories and hydration will also be used during battles, so be sure to make wise decisions.

    Powering up with monster meat!? Change the tide of battle by eating ingredients!

    When you defeat a monster, you will get different ingredients depending on the monster. Eating these will replenish your calories and hydration but give the adventurer a status boost for a limited time as well.

    You can also aim to feed your enemies certain foods to weaken them…?

    Put everything in your mouth, whether it is a monster’s corpse, a weed you just picked, or your friend that just died.

    ■ System: Cooking – Go Beyond with Adventure Foods!

    Cook up “Adventure Foods” with gathered materials.

    You can cook “Dishes” by combining multiple materials that will enhance your adventurer’s statuses. If there is character with high “cooking skill,” the dishes will have better effects despite having the same recipe.

    Using materials as items to consume and enhance, or to use them to grow your basic stats is up to your experience and judgement.

    Foods you can cook while you are in the camp.

    There are over 50 recipes of foods that will lighten up your adventures. Try different combinations to create new foods!

    —Meat Stew: A stew with large chunks of monster meat. The hero Desh loves this classic meat dish.

    —Roasted Bug Skewer: Sometimes there will be some “creative” foods on the adventurers table.

    Nippon Ichi Software has released new information and screenshots for Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny introducing Disgaea: Hour of Darkness characters Laharl, Etna, and Flonne, as well as Item Worlds, Team Attacks, and Giant Units.

    Get the details below.

    Overlord Laharl Appears in the Series’ Traditional “After Story”

    In the “After Story” scenario unlocked by clearing the main game, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness protagonist Laharl, and heroines Etna and Flonne make an appearance, and fight with Zed and company for the title of strongest. Please look forward to seeing Laharl and company in 3D.

    Laharl (voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi)

    The protagonist of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.

    He is the successor to the Overlord of another Netherworld, and prides himself on being the Netherworld’s most evil. He has a supreme and self-centered personality.

    He hates “plump” women.

    Etna (voiced by Tomoe Hanba)

    Laharl’s vassal. She can be very sarcastic.

    She reveres the late King Krichevskoy, Laharl’s father.

    She is known as harshest Prinny tamer in the Netherworld.

    Flonne (voiced by Yuko Sasamoto)

    A former angel apprentice who became a Fallen Angel for the crime of hurting angels.

    She is obsessed with love and superhero shows. Her favorite food is tomalley. As a former angel apprentice, she is devoted to her love missionary activities, but has yet to see any results…

    A World Inside an Item!? Item Worlds Detailed

    Items such as weapons and consumables have a world inside them called an “Item World.”

    Item Worlds are divided into several floors (layers), and the item’s level increases for every floor you clear. Since weapons become stronger as they level up, you can clear their Item Worlds to power them up. Once an item is leveled up, you can get the same item at the same level from then on.

    Many enemies will attack Zed and company, who are the invaders in Item Worlds. Destroy them or step on the Skip Gate to proceed to the next floor. By defeating the boss that appears every certain number of floors, the item will become even stronger.

    Item Worlds also feature a third force in addition to enemies, such as “Innocents” and “Lucky Boards.” Although neither will actively attack you, you can gain various benefits by defeating them, so be sure to attack if you seem them.

    Dispatch Companions into Item Worlds! Item World Research Squad

    Item Worlds have various elements to enjoy, but it may be too much to handle if there are a lot of items you want to enhance…. Not to worry! In Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny, you can dispatch an “Item World Research Squad” to clear Item Worlds.

    —The stronger the squad dispatched to the Item World, the higher their success rate. For each battle the player completes, the dispatched squad will clear one floor, so be sure to send out a squad when leveling or auto-repeating.

    —When you dispatch a squad, you can select from four areas of research to prioritize (item enhancement, item exploration, Innocents farming, and Extract farming). Select which ones to prioritize based on your goal. If you select all four areas of research, the results will be the same as not selecting anything at all, so be sure to narrow down the areas you want to research!

    New Team Attack System With Up to 10 Characters

    When attacking, if there are party members in the surrounding two tiles, a “Team Attack” will occur and strengthen your attack power.

    Furthermore, in Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny, you can perform a Team Attack with up to 10 characters at once. It is significantly more powerful than any Team Attack prior, and can even occur when using special skills. Build up damage in Team Attacks and set your sights on defeating the God of Destruction!

    —During Team Attacks, you can see the cut-ins illustrated by Takehito Harada. Line up your favorite characters and attack in unison!

    —You can also change the colors of characters, which changes their cut-in illustration colors.

    Big is Strong! Gain the Upper Hand with Giant Units

    Among the generic monster characters are Giant Units five times their size. By taking advantage of their size, you can even obstruct the enemy’s movement. Giant Units also have higher basic abilities than other characters and their normal attack has a wide range, allowing them to easily overwhelm lower-ranking enemies.


    Can attack three tiles in front. The more the enemy attacks it, the higher its attack power becomes, so press forward and repel the enemy.

    Clawed Shell

    Can three tiles in front, just like the Dragon. Utilize its defense power and size to counterattack while obstructing the enemy’s movement.


    Can attack three tiles straight ahead. It has long reach and the highest mobility of all the Giant Units.

    Nippon Ichi Software has released new information and screenshots for dungeon RPG Labyrinth of Galleria: Coven of Dusk, including basic elements, characters, and four facets (character classes).

    Get the details below.

    What is Labyrinth of Galleria?

    “Galleria Palace” is an estate built in a remote area.

    It is said that there is an untrodden labyrinth beneath it, where strange, mysterious, unidentified art pieces called “strange objects” are stored…

    The player becomes a “wandering soul” summoned to the magic lantern “Necrolantern” by the witch Madam Malta, and with the help of her exploration assistant Eureka, must seek out the strange objects in the underground labyrinth.

    —It is said that the underground labyrinth is where the mysterious and unidentifiable works art pieces known as “strange objects” are stored.

    —At the witch Madam Malta’s command, the player will search for strange objects in the mysterious and dangerous underground labyrinth.

    Dreadful monsters will attack the player as they search for strange objects in the labyrinth. Fighting them is a good thing to do, but it may not always be possible to win. If you encounter a monster that looks stronger than you, be sure to escape.

    The labyrinth is complex, and it is not always possible to move forward by simply continuing along the path. By using the power of the player’s avatar Necrolantern, it may be possible to discover new areas by destroying walls, diving underwater, and forging your own path.

    Humans cannot enter the underground labyrinth and return alive, so the player will command a brigade of “puppet soldiers” created by the witch to clear the monster-filled labyrinth. The deeper you proceed into the labyrinth, the stronger and more dreadful the monsters that appear. Puppet soldiers will grow as they fight, so train them well and press onward.

    —The “Man-Eating Wardrobe,” the only entrance (and exit) to the underground labyrinth, is a fearsome strange object. Humans who enter it cannot return alive.

    You can make however many “puppet soldiers” you like as long as you have the materials to do so. When making them, you can decide all the parts that make up the unique elements of that puppet soldier, including its name, appearance, and how it will grow. Make your puppet soldiers how you like and take them into the dungeon.

    By registering the puppet soldiers you have created with an item called “Soul Pact,” you can form a “coven” of puppet soldiers. The puppet soldiers that belong to a coven fight in cooperation with each other. It is up to the player to decide which puppet soldiers belong to which coven, so create covens as you see fit.


    Eureka, The Witch’s Exploration Assistant

    A bright and kind-hearted girl who came to Galleria Palace after seeing a poster for an exploration assistant. She assist the witch Madam Malta in exploring the underground labyrinth. She is good at housework and looks after the player’s avatar Necrolantern.

    Necrolantern, the Strange Lantern

    Madam Malta, The Old Witch

    An old witch who goes by the nickname Grandma. She will search to find the strange objects hidden within the labyrinth using the puppet soldiers. She is skilled in necromancy and alchemy, and looks just as you would expect a witch to look.

    Perico, The Witch’s Granddaughter

    The granddaughter of the witch Madam Malta. She travels with and assists Madam Malta. She is a silent and unfriendly, and loves cats.

    Puppet Soldier Facets

    Wonder Corsair

  • In Brief: An all-purpose type that can handle any situation in battle.
  • Specialty Weapon: Sword
  • While they may also be called the adventurer, hero, or mercenary-type, this is a martial arts-dedicated facet that can handle any situation. It can wield various weapons and has the flexibility to survive on the battlefield regardless of whether it is fighting on its own or in a group.




  • In Brief: A group tactics professional from an eastern land.
  • Specialty Weapon: Hammer
  • Group combat professionals of a tribe called Mashira that have mastered the combat arts of an eastern land. While it well-learned in the martial arts, it specializes in the use of hammers. Its power is better manifested as a combatant in group battles rather than when fighting on its own.



    Theatrical Star

  • In Brief: A graceful dancer that strengthens the bonds of its allies.
  • Specialty Weapon: Bell
  • A glamorous dancer who works the stage as an actor. It can easily build good relationships with its allies, and flexes its abilities as a linker of “resonance” attacks. It supports the brigade from the rear with bell-based attacks.


    Famyu Seeker

  • In Brief: Cute allies that support the brigade.
  • Specialty Weapon: Sickle
  • The sole cat-type facet. Since it is small, it has low physical strength and is not expected to have much of a role in battle, but supports the brigade with its natural agility and various skills. You can love it, pet it—it is basically the brigade’s mascot.



    Labyrinth of Galleria: Coven of Dusk is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on November 26 in Japan.

    Mad Rat Goes on a Grand Adventure in a Cartoon-Style World

    This is the adventure story of “Mad Rat,” a lab rab that lived and died in a cage, who uses the “final day” granted to him by the “Rat God” to get revenge on humans!

    Mad Rat Dead is depicted in a cartoon style. Mad Rat uses his “heart” as his partner to adventure to places where humans live, such as downtown or the research institute.

    —Mad Rat is a lab rat on the verge of death. Players take control of this pitiful rat and aim for revenge on humans! How will Mad Rat enact his revenge?



    Mad Rat

    A lab rat that was used as a test subject by humans and lived his life in a cage. On the “final day” granted to him by the Rat God, he plots to get revenge on humans.

    Although hot-tempered and impatient due to his hatred for humans, he can also be compassionate in that he cannot ignore someone in need.

    His favorite thing is cheese (which he has never eaten). He hates humans and cats.



    Mad Rat’s heart, which suddenly jumps out of his body and speaks. Overly friendly, just about everything he says is positive. He tends to get on Mad Rat’s nerves and make him angry.

    He thinks that Mad Rat trying to get revenge on the humans is insane, but even with all that said and done, lends him a hand in his revenge.


    Rat God

    The Rat God who appeared in front Mad Rat, who died and crossed over to the world of the dead. She is super cute (according to Mad Rat).

    She sympathizes with Mad Rat, who lived and died in a cage, and grants him a “final day.”

    She tells Mad Rat that, “When you fulfill your dreams, you can die a peaceful death without regrets,” and supports his dream of getting revenge on humans.



    A human doctor who used Mad Rat as a lab rat and made him live his life in a cage. Mad Rat hates this doctor and plans to get his revenge.

    The doctor is doing some sort of research, for which he keeps a number of caged rats.


    Rhythm x Side-Scrolling Action

    Mad Rat Dead is a rhythm action game in which Mad Rat moves to the beat by pressing buttons to match the rhythm of the music. Press the button at the right time to guide Mad Rat to the cheese at the end of the stage.

    Since you can can feel the rhythm through the rumble of the controller, but with the notes shown on the bottom of the screen, you will be alright even when you are unsure of when to push the buttons.

    The “Rat God” will teach you how to play the game’s rhythm action at the beginning of the game.


    Choose Your Actions with Good Rhythm According to the Situation

    It is important not only to press buttons with good rhythm, but also to choose the best action according to the situation.


    This quick movement is the basic action of Mad Rat Dead. Dashes can also be used in mid-air, as well as to hop over small steps.



    With the high jump action, you can jump over large holes and obstacles. You can use the dash action to jump further mid-jump. Run around the stage as you please!



    The action to attack enemies. By jumping near an enemy, Mad Rat will leap at and whack the enemy. You can also whack the enemy by diving.



    The action to dive down from mid-air. While there are a limited amount of places to use it, it is useful for quickly descending to the ground.



    The action to build up power and strengthen the action that follows. It can be used on the ground or in mid-air, and lengthens the distance of a dash.


    ■ Aim for the High Score

    When you clear a stage, results will be shown based on how fast you beat the stage and how many times you played along with the game’s rhythm. Try and try again to hone your rhythm and action skills to get a high score!

    —By performing actions that match the rhythm one after the other, you can chain together a combo that gets your Heart excited. If you can maximize your Heart’s excitement, then getting a high score should be no problem!

    Still losing my mind over the Animal Crossing series having a Turnip seller, Bug Catching enthusiast and whoever the hell this Beaver was who used to look like this

    But now for New Horizons they look like this

    Complete bimbo/babyfication


    it's their grandkids, are they not allowed to retire??


    Absolutely not


    It's granddaughter and sons, and CJ even drags his dad saying he doesn't actually know how to fish just eat them.

    The new characters are a treat. Daisymae will send you bamboo shoots if you buy turnips often enough, Flick will basically pay off your house with his love of bugs, and CJ will talk about his boyfriend and buy fish, as well as hold the fishing tourneys in a much better way than old games.

    Tom, Timmy and Tommy haven't aged because they're tanuki which are often considered yokai.

    Blathers and the Able sisters got in with Nook early so he shares his power with them.

    Kicks started as a young skunk so he can slowly age with the series.

    Gulliver is essentially a sailor's ghost stuck to sail the seas.


    yeah that all tracks


    Wait go back to the part where the Nook family are yokai because I don’t think we’ve fully unpacked that yet


    Tanuki, or Japanese racoon dog, the animal nook, timmy, and tommy are actually based on (it's only localized to racoon); is a famous magical trickster figure in Japanese folk lore.

    They liked tricking humans into giving them money by trading them leaves magicly cloaked to look like other objects. Sound familiar?

    They are not evil however, just mischivous, and in modern iderations of the mythos they generally bring good luck and fortune to small businesses. People even place their statues outside their stores to bring in customers.

    Nook also started out as a small town businessman, down on his luck, and eventually with his quick wit grew his company into a housing empire where he builds homes, furnishes buildings, populates towns, and mentors others in good business practices ala Timmy and tommy, who were his pupils, and Lyle the otter later on.

    Lyle being a former conman who likely got in over his head working with one kitsune...speaking of, one of the biggest bits of evidence of Tom nook being a yokai is his bitter rivalry with said fox, Crazy Redd.

    Crazy Redd was a character in the series known for running a black market of fake and real art and would regularly con the player character out of their money selling them overpriced items and fake paintings.

    In the back lore of wild world and happy home designer we learn that when Nook was young he went to the city with hopes and dreams to earn his fortune, but his dreams were crushed when all his money was stolen from him by a business partner he trusted, thus why he took Timmy and tommy and eventually Lyle under his wing and helped them learn better business practices to avoid, or at least get themselves out of, a similar fate. In happy home designer we learn that Nook once worked with a fox when he was young and he would never make that mistake again. Redd also makes multiple references to nook in that game as well, making fun of his home, ect. You can infer from this that Redd was the fox who cheated him and likely was the same one who broke his spirit in the big city. Tanukis and Kitsunes (fox yokai) have a similar bitter rivalry in mythos, to the death sometimes even.

    Kitsunes also have the power of illussion but are much more malicious generally and regularly trick people into thinking sticks and leaves are valuable objects or food, much like Redd tricks people with his paintings.

    Inshort Tom nook is a yokai cause Japanese myth inspiration in his character and species. However, this falls under and relies on the same assumption that Redd is also a yokai.


    Just to ignore this cool informative stuff and swing back to the original point in the OP: child labor

    FMA Personality Test

    I’ve scanned the personality test from the old FMA Profiles book. If anyone wants any other pages scanning just ask :)


    In the Japanese version, in those empty spaces with the squiggly Z line it said “あなたの人生は,「XX」 がキーポイントになります。” ‘XX’ is the key point in your life.

    Here’s what it said for each character:

    Ed – 捜し物 (Object being sought) Al – 兄弟 (Brothers)

    Roy – 異性 (The opposite sex) Armstrong – 筋肉 (Muscles)

    Izumi – 弟子 (Pupils) Winry – 機械 (Machinery)

    Envy – 平常心 (Calm mind/face failure or success calmly) Scar – 忍耐 (Patience)

    Strange that Envy’s was totally different.

    Awesome! Hope you’re happy somewhere, Chicken Nugget!


    I have missed this post so much! Let’s all celebrate Chicken Nugget!


    do you guys realize that,,,, chicken nugget is one of those butterflies that is perfectly half female and half male?? nugget’s left wing is typical of a female spice bush swallowtail and the right wing is typical of a male

    a gender role smashing icon


    I wondered why the wings looked different




    He’s a bilateral gnandromorph!!


    WE STAN?????


    chicken nugget said intersex rights


    This whole post is wonderful, but I think a lot of people don’t realise just how rare bilateral gynandromorphs are. Research has shown that only approximately 1 in 6,000 butterflies is a bilateral gynandromorph! So thanks so much @oddity-txt for sharing this wonderful being with us!

    I fell in love with these postcards from the Girl’s Night Out popup cafe the moment I saw them! I knew I had to get my hands on them, and the lovely @blaze-rocket was able to help that happen.

    I cannot get over how perfect these postcards are. To me, this is what Sailor Moon is; a testament to the little moments from the series that made us fall in love with the characters, especially how their personal preferences were reflected in their fashion choices. In a world of merch where it’s easy to just slap a random crescent moon on something pink and say “look, it’s Usagi,” the designer responsible for these graphics went the extra mile to take imagery from the show itself that needles its way deep into our nostalgia-cortexes.

    Oh my god, I've just seen this story on instagram about this guy that filled his bathtub with waterbead...except he didn't think about how he was going to empty it.

    So he unplugged the bathtub which was apparently the worst idea he could possibly have because this happened

    So he panicked and started asking people on the internet what he should do. Which was also a bad idea.

    First suggestion: flush the toilet

    This caused a smelly overflow that flooded the whole bathroom.

    Second suggestion: vaccum the beads

    His vaccum caught fire.

    At this point it had actually spread to the neighborhood and people came to ask question but he denied knowing anything about it. He then discovered that it's invaded the whole sewer system.

    And yet, he continued to take suggestion from the internet.

    Third suggestion: put salt in

    It actually worked. Well, until.

    Poop apprently started flooding his house.

    And then the streets.

    It all happened yesterday so we're still waiting on an update on the situation but I hadn't laugh like this in a while.

    You should go and watch the whole story (it's in 4 parts)

    It's in french, but you get it even if you don't speak it and his screams of panic are hilarious

    Word of warning: don't fill your bathtub with waterbeads. Just don't.


    Update on the situation. The waterbeads have totally blocked the sewer system. He received a letter from town hall telling people to report nuisances to the cops that are searching for the culprit.

    He's in so much trouble that I'm starting to feel guilty for finding this funny...but still kinda laughing about it.


    if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in the midwest, this is it. 


    You missed some of the best ones


    the best part about it is that the art installation isn’t actually called the Bean. It’s called Cloud Gate, and artist Anish Kapoor (yes, THAT Anish Kapoor) hates that we call it the Bean.

    But i mean, look at it. It’s a bean.


    How could you forget this one though




    someone help me why is anish kapoor important what did he do?


    Alright sit down for some Art World Drama bcause this is what I live for.

    So, sometime last year (?) science invented Vantablack, which is the darkest possible shade of black. Art world got incredibly excited. But as it needs to be very carefully made in a lab, it’s hard to get a hold of, and is extremely expensive. Enter Anish Kapoor, aka FuckFace McGee. Anish Kapoor buys the rights to Vantablack. He is the only human being on the planet that can legally use it, and he’s kind of a prick about it.

    Art world is not thrilled with that.

    Enter Stuart Semple.

    Stuart Semple is an artist, and also makes pigments to sell in his free time. Stuart Semple is astoundingly pissed about this Vantablack nonsense, and Anish Kapoor’s dickery. Stuart Semple makes a new pigment, the brightest shade of pink ever, called Pinkest Pink, and puts it for sale on the internet. To be bought by everybody except Anish Kapoor. Literally, to purchase, you need to confirm that you are not Anish Kapoor, do not associate with him, and will not sell or give the pigment to Anish Kapoor or his associates. Art world has a good laugh, everyone buys Pinkest Pink because it’s awesome, and damn it we deserve something.

    Anish Kapoor however is a penis, and will not take this lying down, because HOW DARE he not have literally everything.

    Anish Kapoor gets his London associates to buy him a thing of Pinkest Pink, and being such a classy human being, posts a picture to instagram of him with his middle finger covered in Pinkest Pink, captioned with “Up yours. #pink”

    Everyone flips shit, because. Y’know. Fuck that guy. Especially Stuart Semple. For context here, Anish Kapoor is one of the richest artists on the planet, and has repeatedly been referred to as everything wrong with the art world, and the epitome of the art worlds elitism problem. He’s a giant douchebag. Meanwhile Stuart Semple makes pigments just to get them out there. He turns 0 profit from his now enourmously popular pigments.

    Stuart Semple launches an investigation as to who the fuck leaked Pinkest Pink, and plans to strike back. He does so by releasing two new products. First is Diamond Dust, which is a glitter made from glass, so that a painting is still visible after it’s applied, but glitters like a mofo. It’s the most reflective glitter out there, and is available to everyone who isn’t Anish Kapoor. And it being made of glass, if you stick your finger in there, it’s going to hurt quite a bit, so that was Stuart Semple’s way of saying “shove your middle finger in this, asshole, see what happens”. Except without saying that, because he can get an insult across while still being fucking classy.

    He also releases Black 2.0, created with the help of over a thousand artists worldwide.

    Black 2.0 is the answer to Vantablack. Black 2.0 is a slightly less black black, but looks functionally the same to the human eye. It’s completely safe, smells like cherries, and costs four pounds. Vantablack is highly toxic, potentially explosive, needs to be applied in a special laboratory and sealed properly, can’t be moved across borders, can reach 300 degrees celsius if you’re not extremely careful, and costs thousands of dollars. Anish Kapoor is the only human being who can use Vantablack. He is the only human being who cannot use Black 2.0.

    So I think we can guess who got the better deal.

    And thus the feud ends, Kapoor defeated.

    …But not quite.

    Kapoor, in this entire afair, has made exactly two comments to the public. The first being his charming message about aquiring Pinkest Pink, the second being claiming to Buzzfeed that he and his small army of lawyers will be suing Semple, an extremely poor artist who cannot afford a lawyer.

    No lawsuit has been made yet, fyi.

    The point is, Kapoor is a prick, and doesn’t like talking to the lower classes. So one day in July 2017, he decides he needs another floor on his London studio apartment, and starts making arrangements to have it built. His neighbors are fucking pissed, because this will ruin the light of their apartments. They call to Semple to save them, or at the very least piss Kapoor off some more.

    Semple answers to the call, and releases two new paints, Phaze and Shift, as always, banned to Kapoor. They change colours, Phaze with temperature, and Shift is just iridescent. Shift needs to be painted over Black 2.0 to work, and Phaze just works on its own.

    So that’s been the art world for the last two years.

    Basically, get fucked Anish Kapoor your bean sucks and so does your vantablack.


    Stuart Semple is organising a bean-kissing event for Anish Kapoor’s birthday.


    Reblogging for “By attending this event you confirm that you are not Anish Kapoor, you are in no way affiliated with Anish Kapoor, you are not attending on behalf of Anish Kapoor or an associate of Anish Kapoor. To the best of your knowledge, information, and belief this event will not be attended by Anish Kapoor.”




    I know this isn’t my art blog but this entire post gives me life


    im sorry is that man holding a real actual miniature star in his hands


    Y’all missed the best part about the lightest light, called aptly ‘Lit’. This is from their product page:


    Two things:

    1. “Anish Kapoor is however a penis” is the best line in this post.

    2. I wish to be half as petty and half as awesome as Stuart Semple


    I hope Stuart Semple is making a lot of money. What a good person.


    Go support him the paint’s are pretty cheap and you get the added bonus of being one of many to help piss off Anish Kapoor


    He is my fucking role model for pettiness oh my god


    It got better! I’m also excited because he just released biodegradable glitter in non plastic containers! How amazing is that?! Stuart Semple, good guy for the planet and artists, fighter against the rich elite artist like asshole Kapoor.


    An older project, but he also did this:



    oh dude hes metal as fuck 


    Every addition to this post is better than the last.
