Aliens Everywhere! Review of [140725]Girls in Black

Foreword: Wow! It feels like I haven’t posted in literally forever! I guess I was playing too much MMORPGs recently, but I also had a period when I went to Tennessee for a family vacation too… Well, I’m back now with another review! Titled “Girls in Black”, or GIB for short, this was the most recent Whirlpool game that well… Kinda… okay fine. Pretty crappy. This is weird though, since Whirlpool was able to produce really great titles… I guess they’re also being exposed to the “degradation of quality” as time passes D: In short, the game didn’t really live up to its title “girls in black”, because there was only one heroine who fits that description… out of the 3 available. Despite this, you should read this review fully, because you’ll never guess what this game was meant to be until you do…

Some of the outrageous paradigms that our alien heroine possesses

Summary: Subaru is your normal, average student who doesn’t really have too many friends. He would rather play games in his room instead of hanging out with others, and occasionally watch his younger sister Sorami pretend getting abducted by aliens. One day, when returning home from teaching a strange person with bunny ears directions, he suddenly can’t move, and finds himself slowly rising! Looking above, he sees that there’s a UFO that’s raining light directly at him! He screams for help, and just in time, a girl shoots the UFO and saves him. As he and the unknown girl fight off the UFO, he realizes this girl who was holding a futuristic gun was none other than his classmate! She, on the other hand, is now forced to erase Subaru’s memory. As fate would have it, Subaru is instead recruited into the organization that is called MIB (Men in Black), which is an organization to support the aliens who currently coexist with humans on Earth. The other options was to get his memory erased, and… Subaru didn’t really want that. Joining MIB, he’ll realize that his life has become a lot more exciting.

Subaru, run! (more…)
