Liar-soft’s second vocal CD, “Prosit”, will be coming out this summer. It will feature songs by Rita.
This Super Sonico Sweets & Bikini ver. figure by ARCADIA is even more risque than most of the other ones. She can be yours this October for only ￥11,340.
TENCO isn’t stopping with just one daki for Eiyuu Senki, so help yourself to some Vlad too.
In PULLTOP’s next title, Kokoro@Function!, a group of students received a bugged auto-update which couldn’t be uninstalled on their multi-use communication cards (Orca), causing their own thoughts to be broadcasted to others nearby. The protagonist, Taiyou, forms a ‘Cocoro Function Countermeasure’ (CFC) group to find a way to return to their peaceful school days (and so his perverted thoughts are safe).
minori has also revealed the title of their next work: 12gatsu no Eve.

I’ve been playing RO2 since its launch as well as Hitotsu Tobashi Renai, so I haven’t done much writing in the past week. Let’s see if that’ll change this week.

key joins the mobile games market with Little Busters! Card Mission. It is very similar to Yuzupara, which is using up my data usage after a mere 2 weeks…
Wafu~! Griffon has a cute 1/8 scale figure of Little Busters‘ Kud sukumizu ver. out in July for only ￥8200! You can even take her beret and manteau off, although I think she looks better with them on.

There are 3 groups (Honey Sound, Funky Note, Groovy Tune). Each group for this rhythm game is available for ￥4800. If I were to get one, it’d be Funky Note of course, since it has the twins, Yayoi, Iorin and Hibiki. Perfect!
Finally a figure of Koikishi‘s Yuu! PLUM’s 1/7 scale figure of her will be out in June for ￥9500.
There’s also two Super Sonico figures: a ￥68000 baby doll by Arcadia and a less expensive 1/5 scale Sonicomi package figure from Orchid Seed. Both look nice though. I don’t know if I’d ever consider buying a doll, they’re so expensive…

Naruse Mia is back as a seiyuu after a 3 year hiatus! Well, at least under that name…

I’m back from my trip, with lots of great experiences and some Sana goodies as well. I think everyone should go to a maid cafe at least once in their lives, it’s quite something. Imouto cafes are even better. Anyways, here’s a quick summary of things from the past month.

Yamaguchi Noboru, the author of the Zero no Tsukaima series, passed away after two years fighting cancer. He was also involved in many FrontWing titles, including the ‘Uta‘ series, Kanaria, Green Green, Boy Meets Girl and Clochette’s Kamipani!.
Still recovering from jet lag, so I’m gonna hit the sack. There’s still a ton of photos for me to sort through, maybe I’ll post some later…
We’re back again! This post is probably going to be slightly late as we’re all getting really busy! But that aside, there is a larger amount of sci fi anime coming out in the spring. As much as I wanted it to happen, the selection isn’t exactly impressive. Although I do think age and real life is taking its toll on me, I still do hope to see anime reach a new golden age. So far as it stands, I’m having more fun rewatching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Late and totally not my fault.. maybe… Regardless of my busy schedule or lazy lack of care towards anime that haven’t done much to inspire confidence of late I guess I am sorry for causing the post to be late. All that said this season is the very least better than the previous by a noticeable margin. While we have yet to truly break free of the moe slice of life and romance comedy variations there are at least more options to choose from this season. It is very nice to see an increase in science fiction, although to be honest most of them are pretty bad there is hope that with enough series being thrown out there will be some good shows mixed in eventually.
