This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Rhyme Time

The last time I tried playing Nursery Rhyme, I didn't get very far. Time passed, and the blog stats kept telling me that people seem to like that post. Gods know why; maybe everyone's actually looking for real nursery rhymes, which have often struck me as being a bit creepy if one knows their historical roots.

(This is why I'm not heading my entry with "nursery rhyme", since someone looking for something for their kiddies might not react kindly to eroge.)

One of the frequent comments about Nursery Rhyme is that it's actually a pretty good game, or at least a good Visual Novel (disclaimer added to head off debates about the definition of "game"), and it is Such A Pity that nobody's made an English patch for it yet. Since the main reason I didn't finish the game was entirely because of the lack of an English patch, I can understand this, much like how I cannot understand most of the text in the game.

Therefore, a thought occurs: being that I have no other ideas for a blog post that haven't already been overdone, why not post about a playthrough of the game?

Normally I'd keep a post like this at the back of my mind, hopefully to be forgotten, because it's a very bad idea to start yet another thing I probably won't be able to finish. However, Real Life has landed me in the middle of what might be described as Excreta Occurs, and I really need something to cheer me up. Therefore, you get this. I may or may not continue on with this, depending on my whims.

In the far future, when I am no longer under the thrall of soul-sapping situations, or at least head up instead of head down, I might alter this intro to be less irritable. Until then, so it goes.

Incidentally, don't ask me where I got the game, since I don't even remember it myself. I suspect that this is one of those "friend of a friend", or "guy who knows a guy" things, and I'm horrible with keeping track of those.
