Justin? Are you a fan of Rosenkreuzstilette?

I swear, I've been claimed by many not to be one of those described above. Simply put, a lot of people claim (at least to my knowledge) that I do not show any love towards the doujin series. So let me speak the sole truth.

No. I do not dislike the RKS series. True that I have said I only anticipate the series for it's roster of characters (of which 95% are female) back when I was still a nutcase, but there' more to it.

Sure I'm not much of a die-hard fan as say, those two; but that doesn't mean I'm allowed to like the series for it's good control, great gameplay, and great graphics and visuals. In fact, if you were to take out the soundtrack of super-hyped songs playing in locations they don't seem to (remember, my opinion) belong in, and replace them with music from other games and s#ite, I can get super hyped and actually like playing it.

Yea guys, I said like. Kinda hard to believe, right?

Well, as ironic as it sounds, yes. If you give me some patience and a killer soundtrack, I can get as far as the second half of the final (Iris') castle. In fact, twice I even made it through Graf's castle, and once I was able to finish the initial eight stages on one life (not really sure if I did, might have screwed up on Freudia's stage though, with the unforgiving Quickman lazers.), in the preferred boss order (Lieb, Lust, Zorn, Schw, Trau, Grol, Sich, Freu). So yea, I do like playing the game, and I am anticipating the long-awaited release of ~Freudenstachel~, the game's long overdue sequel. And I got millions of other ways that I can show my love to the series. Obviously we have the unfortunately ad-rampant Grolla's Dungeon and the dA group, both I started in December 2009, then we got unofficial unlicensed merchandise, made straight from the printer. And to start, let me show you a photo of my room.DSCN0440.jpg Yep that's right. This is my effin' room. And unless you're blind, you may spot the various times characters from the Rosenkreuzstilette series appear on these pics. In the bottom left, we have pics of Witchblade characters with the faces of various characters from RKS, something I have so far only posted to my Twitpic account. In the center, is a giant RKS poster of the first game's cover minus the font, and in the right, Spiritia Rosenberg appears several times in my fan-crossover images to promote her series. (Hm... Crossover series. We'll get to that sometime.) If that wasn't enough, Trauare Wrede appears alongside Bleach's Ichigo Kurosaki in a spoof image of Tron: Legacy. But hey aside from that, Spiritia, or should I say Spirisane (No, NOT going to become an original character! ), is plenty represented over on the left. Think I still dislike Spiritia? Well I may not think she's the best female of the series or in general, but I don't flat-out hate her as I used to to the point where I put up all of these pictures of her being tortured.

So let me just clarify, I will always be a good fan of Rosenkreuzstilette, it's characters, and it's games, and never will I stop liking it, despite how much the English fanbase may dislike me, falsely claiming me to also still be a troll. I just hope that someday, I can actually get into a friendly little convorsastion with WOMI, the series' character designer, then I'll pretty much be in the "cool".

I believe there is room for almost all opinion about this game. Just because someone doesn't rate it an 11 out of 10 doesn't mean that they should be driven out of the fandom.

I'd say let in the fanfics, fan art, MST3Kers, musicians, bloggers, forums, programmers, otakus, and what-nots. Each individual covers their own little corner of the internet which is seen by their friends and hopefully they will buy the game.

If it's something you don't like, you're free to not click on it and pretend it doesn't exist.
