Welcome to 2011!
Happy new year everyone! 明けましておめでとうございます！
A new year means another year of new eroge to play and more imoutos to take home! I’ll quickly recap what happened in the past year and make my New Year’s resolutions.
2010 was the first full year when I had to balance work, blogging and imouto time. As a result, the majority of the posts are weekly news and monthly previews. Zen and nemuiwanko have taken over the anime season write-ups and figure reviews, so thanks very much to them. 今年もよろしくお願いします。 My resolution from last year was to play and review one eroge every month. Well… I full completed a total of 15 games, but only reviewed one. I need to get myself to write something up before moving on to the next game ^^;;
Other random 2010 tidbits:
- Congrats once again to Azunyan for winning Saimoe 2010!
- The IRC channel started up in late September and it’s nice talking to all of you. Join us at #hauomochikaeri @ IRC HighWay!
- Thanks to everyone for participating in the second anniversary survey. We’ll try to improve as much as possible this year.
- Revised the eroge page to be more informative.
- Free eroge (se.Kirara) never caught on. Did anyone buy the figmas?
- The eroge censorship and foreign IP blocking in 2009 has since subsided. Now it’s anime and manga’s turn with the Tokyo Ordinance Bill issue. I anticipate that nothing will change and we’ll still get our share of kissxsis and Yosuga no Sora.
- No, I’m not done writing about Oreimo :)
I bought a lot of manga and light novels this year, as well as finally biting the bullet and getting that Koromo figure. Preordering the Dengeki G’s magazines was quite the hassle, but I got the niitengo set and they look great! Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! has emerged as one of my fav LNs, alongside Oreimo. My fav eroge from this year that I played probably is Koisora. Sure it’s cheesy and the story could’ve been written better, but I felt like I was right there with the Kaminajima Crusaders fighting for their island (time to loop “Revolution”). And the fandisk is coming out this year! YESSSSS!!!
Finally, New Year’s resolutions for this year. I plan to play the top 10 imouto-ge according to EGS. Since I played Yoake, Riaimo and Mizuiro, that leaves Yukiuta, Akiren, Moshiraba, Sinsemilla, Yosuga, Akasaka and Shinikiss. I’ve already started on Nano’s route in Yukiuta already and will get back to it when I’m done this post.
Thanks for visiting us and we hope you will join this year as well. Here’s to another great year! May there be more awesome imoutos~
