I’m more than halfway to Meguri in Moteyaba! Both Aoba and Maina were cute, but the plot is nothing to speak about. Miya-senpai is awesome too!

The latest ‘sleeping with’ CD from EDGE RECORDS is with imoutos. The “Imouto to Issho ni Nemureru CD” comes out December 11th and you can get a dakimakura of your favourite imouto too. Saika and Mifuyu are both a bit like my type.
Aside from the announcements for Persona 5 and Chaos;Child for the PS3, there’s also a port for Shin Koihime†Musou on February 20th. Imaimo will be available on the PSV too, although I’m not sure if there’ll be any new content.
Moteyaba sure makes you feel miserable for rejecting other girls. However, I must be resolute. Everything for my imouto. (It’s really difficult with Aoba though…)

Asagao’s dere side is too powerful, propelling her to a victory in the Cocoro@Function! chara poll, ahead of a surprising Mina and Bell. 兄さんDIE好き！ Ouka topped the Sakigake⇒Generation chara poll. I would’ve voted for Ririko or Yuria, but I guess there’s a reason for the recent balloon effect in Clochette’s games. The Shin Shirogane no Soleil chara poll has started up and will run until December 6th.
The Karumaruka＊Circle visual fan book from MAX will be on shelves on December 18th. It includes a short story and 4koma, along with the usual goodies.
Love the energy in Orchid Seed’s 1/6 scale figure of Super Sonico cheer girl ver.. It’ll be shipped in August, at a price of ￥12,000.
Hey everyone, it’s Bell! Did you miss me? Everyone’s favourite concierge will wake you up in the “Bell Alarm” app from Google Play. What do you mean my device is incompatible??? Something’s wrong!!! BELL!!!!!!!!!!!!
One more week for Moteyaba…
Clochette’s Sakigake⇒Generation! has been set for May 30th. Still another half year till you can play VR RPG with your imouto.
Ex-iT’s Hina to Issho has been delayed to December 20th.
Celia topped the first Walkure Romanze More&More chara poll, with Akane and Noel completing the top 3.
Super Sonico the Animation will be on air for the Winter 2014 anime season, starting in January. Come watch me do absolutely nothing special, Cameraman-san!
Griffon’s upcoming 1/8 scale figure of Shining Ark‘s Shannon is based on Tony’s artwork. It comes out in December for ￥9200.
For those wanting something a bit more risqué, there’s a 1/6 scale 15+ figure of Walkure Romanze‘s Mio coming out next June for ￥14,000 from Daiki Kougyou, as well as milkpot’s 1/6 scale castoff figure of TH2‘s Tamaki pink swimsuit ver. in March for ￥15,750. I find the quality for castoff figures to be a little lacking though.
It’s been relaxing going through Kimika and Matsuri’s routes in Imaimo. While Kimika trying to overcome her shyness is a common story, Matsuri’s is anything but. She’s an awesome bro. Now on Oot’s suggestion, I’m gonna enjoy the sweetness that is Berry’s. I want a parfait now.
Vanadis is making a sequel to St Monmosu Gakuen titled St Monmosu Fantasy!! ~Omatsuri da yo Zenin Shuugou!~. It seems like there may be two new heroines.
Release dates have been set for the following:
Dandelion’s Meguru Kisetsu no Yakusoku to, Tsunaida Sono Te no Nukumori to has been once again delayed to later this winter. Other delayed titles include:
The Cocoro@Function! chara poll has started up, so all of you better vote for Bell so she can get a route

The PSV/PS3 adaptation of Oretsuba will be coming out on March 13th. It will include a new scenario.
Oh hey, ALTER’s 1/7 scale figure of Super Sonico swimsuit Santa ver. is pretty cute! There needs to be more Santa swimsuit outfits! It comes out in April (not Christmas) for ￥9200.
Don’t let Kotonoha-sama catch you with this Sekai dakimakura. Otherwise, you or someone else will have to do a lot of cleaning up.
As expected, Asagao’s route reveals the origins of the “Cocoro Function” apps and Bell as well. The route was one of the better ones, compounded with a deredere imouto and MORE BELL! All in all, the game was like most Hollywood movies: not much substance, but entertaining nevertheless.
Some quick thoughts on the November trials… Izayoi no Fortuna was surprisingly good with Kona’s reveal. Kiraoto will probably be just another loli-ge. Riddle Star is so random but the Alice in Wonderland parallels are fun. Don’t like the art in Wagaya no Himegami-sama. Like the plot in Aka-san to Kyuuketsuki even less. Looking forward to Sakuoto; it’s just a matter of time before Aoi’s cover is blown. Moteyaba will be my top pick as Meguri is an awesome imouto who can communicate telepathically with nii-san.
Afterwards, I went back to complete some routes I skipped in past games (Hitoren and Imaimo). After putting Kimika’s route on hold for over half a year, it’s refreshing to go back to a title with polished art and a decent heartwarming story. Even if you don’t normally play all-ages games, you should really check it out (and not only for Ayumu!). Also, I can’t believe I actually finished Risa’s route. She is so annoying!
Maple Software’s Natsuiro☆Macchiato has been delayed to March 28th.
Palptanks won the Rance 01 chara poll. I have no idea what the correct spelling of her name is, so let’s just call her Pal-chan. The Himegoto Union chara poll is underway and runs until November 15th. Hijiri’s got the early lead, but Koharu’s not far behind!
The PriministAr visual fan book will be on shelves November 27th for ￥2940.
The OST for VenusBlood -GAIA- will come out on November 29th, the same day as the much-anticipated SLG.
Delicious dakimakura of Gengetsu no Pandora‘s imouto Shinorin available for preorder starting November 15th. It’s a re-release, but this time using Lycra fabric as the base material.
So I’ve been playing Cocoro@Function! the past week. Was it worth the hype? Well, the different versions of “Cocoro function” were interesting, but many of the stories did not progress much further than being a series of dirty jokes/thoughts, lots of ba-couple moments and ‘open’ H scenes.
But that’s not to say it wasn’t interesting though… just that the story isn’t at the same level as Konosora. I still have the final route for Asagao to finish and it supposedly reveals the origins of these mysterious apps. I’ve also got a bunch of November trials to play, as I haven’t quite decided which I want to play first when they’re released.
The art for ad:lib‘s next title Doko no Donata no Kanjou Route looks pretty good. I especially like the lively twintailed senpai Sayaka. It comes out on January 31st. I.D.‘s next title, Love Relation, is featured in this month’s issue of Dengeki Hime.
Palette’s much-anticipated Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura Doki is planned for April 25th. There still haven’t been much info, but that’s normal considering the release date. Release dates have also been set for the following:
Kotoba no Kieta Hi – December 20th
Koisuru Kimochi no Hanakotoba – January 31st
Shin Shirogane no Soleil – January 31st
Hapymaher -Fragmentation Dream- – February 28th
Koisuru Doll to Omoi no Kiseki – February 28th
Galette’s Timepiece Ensemble has been delayed to December 20th.

Papara all night long in the Kisaragi Gold☆Star seifuku by BOO-COS.
Sango’s route in Ichiban was a lot better than the previous two since it actually introduced the drama early to give it time to develop. It really showed the closeness of the kouhai trio. I skipped Kohaku’s route in favour of playing Sensuibu!.
Now THAT was very fun! It’s been a while since I’ve played a SLG and I’m pretty much being a completionist and maxing out all skills and styles. While the battles are pretty much the same for all four routes, the focus differs depending on the route.
My only complaint is that many of the routes don’t really have much romance development. Instead, there’s lots of twists and turns as they move on towards the Wasser Gral finale. Also, Mei is a great heel; I hate her guts and made sure to destroy her slowly. Kekeke…
Now, it’s time for Cocoro@Function!. Come to me, my MIA-san… and Bell!!!!!
Pajamas Soft announced four separate titles in this month’s issue of TECH GIAN. They are teaming up with WHITESOFT for Renai☆Harem and SkyFish for LOVE×2Life!.

Mark your calendars! D.C.III P.P. will be coming out on March 28th! I can’t wait for more Sara!

The Noblesse of Rouge OST, featuring Shimotsuki Haruka’s OP and Rita’s ED, comes out on November 29th from GWAVE. The special edition includes a Rui tapestry.
Dakimakuras for Hyakka Ryouran Elixir‘s Marguerite and Andromeda are available for preorder until November 7th.
There’s a short story for Otome Riron to Sono Shuuhen‘s Dietlinde on Navel’s blog.
Played through Hisui and Ruri/Hotaru’s routes so far in Ichiban Ja Nakya Dame Desu ka? and they’ve been quite underwhelming. At least Ruri had some nice CGs, but the drama is almost laughable with the lack of development. The tie-ins to the game’s title seemed forced. I’ve only got Sango’s route left since I don’t plan to play Kohaku’s, but at least this one is off to a better start, introducing the drama earlier. Let’s see if this one ends up better than the rest…
Purple Software’s Hapymaher is getting a fandisk, Hapymaher Fragmentation Dream. More news forthcoming in the October issue of TECH GIAN. The next title in raiL-soft‘s Astelite series, Astelite Shissouki, will come out on December 20th. Glacé has also revealed their next title, Koishiki Manual, scheduled for spring 2014.
Praline’s Baka Moe Heart ni Ai o Komete! has been set for January 31st.
Windmill’s HHG Megami no Shuuen has been delayed to later this winter. The following titles have also been delayed:
Attention all trap lovers! Nounai Kanojo just put up a harem route patch for Josou Kaikyou.
Miiya and Morscha came out on top of the Nyancafe
cat fight chara poll. They’ll both get a wallpaper which comes out on November 1st. Other recent chara poll winners include Sekachu‘s Aira and Timepiece Ensemble‘s Saori.

ORCA TOYS – 1/7 scale Sasara animal costume black cat ver. (TH2, April, ￥9800)
Well, I got my icharabu fix in Futaba’s route in Oniishare. Seseri’s route was also good in a totally different way. She sure loves her oniichan a lot. Maybe a little too much. Definitely an lewd imouto (淫妹) if I’ve seen one myself.
7GEAR has closed down before their debut title ALIVE even came out. It’s tough out there, folks.
Hey look, an imouto wins another NekoNekoSoft chara poll. This time, it’s Yuri coming out on top in the Kiraoto chara poll. In the side poll, MY SISTER #1 Yuki retains the crown against MY SISTER #2 Ai.
The PSP port for Nonoura is set for a December 19th release.
The Imopara2 HLN will be on shelves next week on October 11th. Imoutos everywhere!
WAVE has a pair of 1/10 scale Beach Queens figures coming out soon, starting with Daito‘s Nagi in March for ￥4200, followed by Mahoyo‘s Aoko (standard and Rurihime original ver.) in April for ￥4200 and ￥5600, respectively. Why isn’t there one for Kanasuke?
You can now preorder the dakimakura for Love2Quad‘s Ermalit, which ships in late November.
So I’m playing through Oniichan Sharing this week and I’m done the twins Chiko and Yuu. Pretty much it boils down to being an imouto nukige with some… interesting scenes. I wish there was more icharabu though.
Rosebleu’s Ichiban Ja Nakya Dame Desu ka? is waiting in the wings, then I have some October trials to play. Looks like my weekend’s booked.
