Let’s see what we’ve got this week in news. Let’s start with the bad news:
Artmove, the developer of otome games under the brand Quinrose, has suspended its business due to low sales. They just released a game and are no longer selling that game either. This is sad news and comes on the heels of another Japanese business filing bankruptcy. Let’s hope that’s the last of the bad news!

A love for a person she can’t say ‘I love you’ to is about to start. Mayo is a very shy girl.

A far too clumsy, secret, unrequited love.”
