Anime Deals April 2023 Blog Banner

Can’t believe that it’s already April considering that I have to search for deals that I want to include in the Anime Deals: April 2023 Edition post.

Hard to believe that time flies so fast.

Perhaps it has something to do with me working on polishing the first book of the Trigger Locked series, The Mind Control Assassins over the last couple of weeks.

When I say that I’m polishing the book, I don’t mean that I’m making changes to the story.

It’s more like doing minor changes to the book.

Things like fixing the grammatical errors and rewriting some of the sentences to make the story flows better.

That’s the kind of changes that I make to the book. There are no changes to the story whatsoever.

As you can expect, I don’t just intend to polish the first book of the Trigger Locked series. I’ll be doing the same thing for the second book of the Trigger Locked series, A Silent Killer as well.

It’s too bad that I can only start working on it in May, though. I need to handle the blogging side of things first since I’ll be taking a semi-long break at the end of April.

I don’t have the exact date when the new version of The Mind Control Assassins and A Silent Killer will be coming out.

But you can bet that you’ll hear about it right here on the Anime Deals post.

And while you’re waiting for the brand new edition of the books to come out, take a look at what’s in store for you in the Anime Deals: April 2023 Edition.

Anime Deals: April 2023 Edition update

Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water Blog Banner

If there’s one game that is based on a real Japanese ghost story, it’ll be Fatal Frame.

As someone who has never played the game before, I found the game to be rather interesting since the story in Fatal Frame is based on a true urban legend.

Will I be playing the game then?

Sad to say, the answer is no. I’m such a scaredy cat that I find the game to be a little too much for me to handle.

That’s strange coming from someone who is a thriller author, right?

If you’re into survival horror games and you’re curious about Japanese urban legend, then I highly recommend that you give the game a try.

You can start with the one that came out in 2021, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, just to see if it’s according to your liking or not.

You can get the physical copy of the game in whichever system you prefer right here at Playasia:

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water on PlayStation 4
