[Review] Patty and Mr. Miles

Title: Patty and Mr. Miles
Genre: RPG, Comedy
Developer: BrownSugar
Console: PC
Playtime: 1-2 hours

Patty and Mr. Miles is a pretty short game with cutesy graphics and a town that reminds me of the Pokemon town maps. You can fish to earn money or increase your stats, and farm locos that you can use to heal yourself during battles (though really, it isn't necessary to even farm locos just to progress or win boss battles). There are also short side quests available when you talk to the other villagers.

Behind the cutesy exterior is a dark past waiting to be uncovered. Well, if you play the After Story that is. You can totally just stop at the main story and save yourself from the feels and all the weird stuff that happen in the after story. Sometimes, you're just better off not knowing.

I'd recommend this game to people who like the whole 'cute but violent' theme and who are into games with dark back stories. What I love about this game are the graphics and the comedy. I like how you can choose to either waste time by exploring and doing other things or head straight to the ending. I just wish they made the story lengthier and with more character development.

"We're not terrorists. Really."


One day all the heads of the guys in the village got turned into animal heads including Miles'. They suspect that it's the wizard's doing so Miles and his girlfriend Patty head over to the Wizard's Tower to ask the wizard to reverse the so-called 'curse'. There, Miles discovers a secret about the wizard...

-After Story-

Miles and Patty become mayors, so they start having responsibilities like taking requests from the villagers. As they fulfill their duties, Miles begins to remember bits and pieces of his past. Then, things start falling apart...

Because the village needs one so badly!

Mini Guide:

You don't really need a walkthrough for this game, considering it's pretty straightforward, but here's some random info I managed to take down from playing. It's incomplete since most things available aren't necessary to even complete the game and I like saving time soo...


1. Catch giant fish - John
- Just head to the second fishing lake and drop your line right in front of the sea dragon's face. Make sure the bait is right in front of its mouth.
- Go back and talk to John after

2. Convince Daryll not to move - Patricia
- Go to castle
- Talk to Jacob (merchant guy)
- Talk to John
- Bomb castle
- Reward: Veggie Box

3. Farming - Vince


I must admit. I am really terrible at fishing, but I managed to catch a bunch of fish that raised their stats high enough to easily KO bosses with a few moves. So, here are some fish and their corresponding stat increases:

Eel - HP
Sake - Defense
Ei - Special Attack
Beta - Attack


??? badge - found in the tower (I forgot what the pic on the badge was, but this one you'll definitely encounter)
Ghost badge - found in the well
Snowman badge - found in the well

I love this couple. So cute!

Ending Conditions

12/22/14: Ok, Apparently there's a third ending which allows you to access a bonus playroom after. Thanks to Dyoti for pointing this out.

Since I haven't gotten the last ending yet, here are the conditions for all endings taken from 4 cat's site which I translated to English.


When the notebook is filled up, there's an item you have to obtain before following Coco. (If you have it, a cutscene will follow)

To obtain the item, you have to satisfy the two requirements below. 
Condition 1: Put up a favorable impression when the little boy and two people are there.
Condition 2: Don't wreck Lyell's good spirits too much. (Restrain yourself from rude behavior and disregarding warnings.)

There's no need to walk around back and forth to obtain the item. Only, when you control Lyell, you cannot obtain the item between the time when he starts searching for "that room" and before you obtain the notebook.


Follow Coco out the door while the notebook's pages are still incomplete. (When you collect all the pages, Lyell will say something to himself.)


Fulfilling the two requirements below is necessary:
Condition 1: Don't put up a favorable impression when the little boy and two people are there.
Condition 2: When Lyell has not yet read the memo on top of the table in the annex, end the game with the stuffed animals

Extra info for END3: To unlock the door inside the room with the stuffed animals, don't read the memo in the room where the boy hid. Read the 2 notebooks, one inside the pink room and another in the master's room.

Papina's Otaku Life Update #5: GigaP's Voice is Awesome x Anthology

I've been caught up doing translation work for Corpse Party mangas (Besides working on Black Diary). We just released the Eng translated first chapter of Corpse Party: Coupling x Anthology, a manga that focuses on some popular pairings from Corpse Party. The first chapter is Naho x Kibiki~ So, if you're up for reading it, it's over here.

Besides that, I've been fangirling over GigaP, his voice, and his latest album No Title! (Which was released on my birthday. OMG. It's fate! xD) I absolutely love the songs in that album~ Here's one of my favorites:

I just posted the lyrics to it too in this blog. You can have a look at them here.

If there's one light novel I would love to translate, it's Misao. I still have to obtain a copy of it though. It seems kinda lengthy, but I find the story intriguing for some reason.

I want cold somen noodles~

Doshite sekai wa mawaru no?
Doshite inochi wa kizamu no?

Kyou mita yume no hanashi kara
Tooku de hikaru hoshi no kanashimi made

Moshi kimi to aeba
Kyoumi ga ubawareru to
Nandomo nigeta saki ni
Warau omokage

Ima no watashi de wa
Nanimo kamo sutete
Subete sasagete mo mata
Imi o sagashite mo
Hito o tasukete mo
Nanimo kawaru koto naku
Sadame no mama
Sugaru dake de

Doshite ashita o miseru no?
Doshite kinoo wa suteru no?

Kyukutsu sugiru kokoro kara
Shoki mo kyoki mo nai
Sakuryuku made

Futo omoidashita
Kimi no ano yokogao
Nani mo tenitsukanai
Hibi ga hajimaru

Ima no watashi de wa
Te o nobasu koto mo
Yurusareru wake ga naku
Nani ka kanashite mo
Kimi mo mitsukete mo
Nani mo kawaru koto naku
Sadame no mama
Sugaru dake de

Yakunijuu oku no naka kimi ni kaketa
Kitai to ka
Shitsubo to ka
Wasureru hodo
Onaji dake kimi no watashi ni

Moshi mo hitotsu dake
Negaeru no naraba
Houn no sukoshi
Kimi no soba ni
Ikasete yo
Ikitai yo

Ima no watashi nara
Nanimo kamo sutete
Subete sasagetara hora
Kimi ga itekureru
Koko ni itekureru
Sore dake de kawari dasu
Sadame no mama
Ano watashi ni

English Translation:

Why does the world revolve?
Why does life come to pass?

From the talk of the dream I saw today
The sadness of a bright star still shines far away

If I were to meet you, you would steal away my attention
And wear a smiling appearance that  ran away many times before.

The me now throws away anything and everything
Still gives everything up, searches for meaning, and helps people
Remaining unchanged uneventfully
I end up clinging to the current state of my fate

Why are you showing me tomorrow?
Why are you throwing away yesterday?

A heart that's constrained and hardened
Employs a scheme that allows neither sanity nor madness
Suddenly, I remember your profile
Being unable to concentrate on anything
My days begin

The me now extends a hand not for the sake of forgiveness
Letting my tears run dry and searching for you
Nothing changed eventfully
Just clinging to the current state of my fate

Out of two billion, you are the one I hold feelings for
To the extent of forgetting hope and despair
It’s the same way for you with me

If I can have one more wish
Just let me go to your side
I want to go there

If it’s the me now
I'd throw away anything and everything
If I give everything up
You will stay
You will stay right here
That’s what I'll get in exchange
To the current state of my fate
To that me
