Japanator Recommends: Katawa Shoujo
by Elliot Gay

I was never much for running. A light jog was fine and all, but at the end of the day I just found myself getting bored every single time I hit the track. This time was different though. I couldn't afford to sit on my ass all day, letting my condition get worse and worse with each passing moment. Of course even if I wanted to be lazy and skip my exercises, there's no way in hell she would let it happen without throwing a tantrum. Kind of ironic considering she's already running so far ahead of me. I decide to try and match pace with her, working my legs harder than they've been worked since I was released from the hospital. 

That's when it happened. I could feel my heart beat increasing at a terrifying speed. I immediately fell to the ground, grasping at my chest and praying to God that I could somehow overcome the pain. I could hear my running partner frantically calling out my name. What was I doing? Just the other day I was cursing this school and the people around me. I was hating this broken body of mine, this broken new life that I never asked for. Yet here I was, running with this girl I'd only just met, something infectious about her smile and sense of drive. Is that what changed me? Is that why I was here on this track, giving it my all? 

I don't want to die. I want to live!

Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to Katawa Shoujo.

The Bible Black story or: How I learned to love hentai photo
The Bible Black story or: How I learned to love hentai
by OxKing

[I almost never have any stories to tell, really. I mean, I hardly ever do anything crazy each day, and even when me and other friends decide to roam about town, nothing too extreme comes out of it...just a funny experience and a good time. Since I hardly do much during my free-time outside of being on the computer and lounging around, when I find myself in some grand, elaborate story, complete with drama normally found in television shows, I begin to cherish and take the moment into heart, telling it in an unorthodox way, trying to get the listener to feel what I felt. This is going to be retelling one of those moments, where things perfectly set themselves up to be a story I can happily tell people, complete with twists and themes. And so, I'm really happy to share this one with you all for Ero Week. Enjoy!]

Not too long ago (I think it was in or around autumn time, 2007), there was an incident that happened at my school (then, I was in high school). It wasn't one that had people talking all year long or that was remembered after about a couple of weeks... you know, those kind of stories. Anyway, the story goes that a kid in his sophomore year, who I'll call Benny for now, was caught in the computer lab masturbating to hentai. He was suspended for a short time, then people went on about their lives as normal afterwards. It was a story that wasn't really that very interesting for me to care too much about, however it for some reason stuck to me for two key reasons:

1) This was at a time when anime was still peaking for me and was about to expand itself into what I do now which raised a few questions for me about anime in general later on.

2) I've talked with this kid before. He was far from the usual demographic for hentai. He was known for his school record for Track and Field. He was on ASB, and never once hinted at "geeky" or "nerdy" trends, or at least as far as I could recall.

Benny eventually graduated, and not only did no one confront him again about the incident of him and anime porn again, but it seemed as if it were taboo to even mention it at all. I mention this story not as a statement that all average people like hentai as a universal fetish, but that this incident alone got me interested, and involved, in one of the weirdest projects I ever have and probably ever will be apart of in my entire life.
