As expected, there will be an anime adaptation for D.C.III! It’s planned for the upcoming winter season, starting in January. Will they intend to make it into a 2-cour series? I’m not sure if there’s enough content in the prologue to last 12 eps, but maybe they’ll add more scenes at Kazami Gakuen, before it heads into Weather Vane chapter. Either way, I’m really excited!! ^o^
But that’s not the only D.C.III announcement! There’s also going to be a D.C.III Dash Ver1.3 USB Memory version scheduled for September 28th. It can be played from a USB as it doesn’t require installation, and adds an Aoi route, a new ultimate battle story, as well as the gnulric mini-game I was wishing for! Players who bought the original game will be able to update for free. The official perfect visual book also comes out on July 30th! I love being a D.C. fanboy.
Sphere’s Imouto no Katachi has been delayed to August 31st. Coupled with Irohika‘s postponement, July is now without my Top 2 titles. T_T
The novel adaptation by Famitsu Bunko for August’s next title Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai overture will be on shelves August 30th, but you can get your first taste of the story in the TECH GIAN Super Prelude trial on July 27th. The first volume of the Robotic;Notes manga is out, while a novel adaptation for Ore no Kanojo no Uraomote is planned.
Windmill’s releasing the individual character song CDs for Witch’s Garden over the next two months, with Ayari and Suzuno out on July 25th and Ririko and Misumi out on August 22nd. They’ll be priced at ￥1260 each. The Koichoco anime character song album, “Chocolate Selection”, comes out on August 22nd. 07th Expansion celebrates the 10th anniversay of Higurashi at C82 with a commemorative CD, “you&history”. It’s not limited to just Higurashi, but also includes songs from Umineko, Ougon Musoukyoku and Higanbana.
With C82 just around the corner, there’s more dakimakura’s being announced, including Koichoco‘s Isara (あっは～☆), Astraythem’s Natsuki, Promia‘s Enothera and Cachette and also one from Natsuiro Residence (probably Akuru). Chuable Soft will also have a drama CD and vocal album out for Astraythem.
Good thing that I kept with Hatsukoi 1/1 as Yukino’s and Midori’s routes were so much better. Thanks to those that encouraged me to stick with it. Yuuma definitely wasn’t as dense, although arguably still kinda useless in Yukino’s route. Thankfully, that’s what friends are there for. It seems his character changes yet again in Maya’s route, although I like his character in Midori’s the most. Her route was my fav so far.That’s how drama should be done, especially the cell phone scene. Now if only Runa had a route…
