Ever since I've played Hyperdimension Neptunia, I have been a big fan of the series. Despite the constant waves of references, silly plot, and maybe too much talking, the series had captured my heart.
The first day I've heard about this series was on a "let's play" of Hyperdimension Neptunia (original) video on YouTube. The art style interested me, so I read some reviews about the game. Most of it was negative, which made me hesitant to buy the game. 3 days have passed since I've seen the synopsis of the game and reviews, but the art styling and Neptune's cute voice from the "let's play" video still lingers in my mind. It's funny that Neptune's voice is telling me to buy the game on my mind, so I'm like, "Why not?" I let $30 burn a hole in my pocket so that I can acquire the game. After a while of playing the game, it definitely captured my heart. It also shocked me why this game received too many negative reviews. It's not that bad at all. I actually liked the game.
So after the first game, I bought mk2. I'm actually still playing it and trying to acquire at least 1 of every single item in the game (some DLCs not included). One day, I decided to look on the wiki for the game. Turns out, it lacked some information. I finally felt like the series is too underappreciated. It might just be me, but that's how I feel. So I decided to take some of my time and provide as much information about the series as possible.
I know it sounds cheesy for a blog post, but at least I finally get to let my thoughts out. I also know that nobody might ever read this, but this is my two cents.
