Love comes in many different forms. It could be a battle like in Sugar House’s Otonari Koi Sensou! or the sweetest dream, similar to Purple Software’s HapyMaher Fragmentation Dream. It’s enough to make people form ‘love observation’ clubs, like in FLAT’s Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa, or undergo special love training classes, as shown in Glacé’s Koishiki Manual. What is love to you?
Sigh, I had some small hope for Light’s game to not be complete failure but sadly they chose to disappoint me more than a parent watching their child major in performance art. Other than that it feels like more of the usual, the same settings we have seen a hundred times before, the same characters, and the same lame reasoning to turn protagonists into schoolgirl chastity absorbing black holes.
The third chapter of ωstar’s Bishoujo Mangekyou: Kami ga Tsukuritamouta Shoujo-tachi will be out sometime this year. The protagonist Ryounosuke is a self-proclaimed mad scientist who created two dream maid robots, Alice and Doroshii.
Getchu’s 2013 bishoujo-ge award polls have started. You have until January 31st to put in your votes! Help me flood the character poll with imoutos!
TRUMPLE’s Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete has been green-lit for an anime adaptation. Well, that art is nice, but let’s see if they can carry that art across to a different medium or will it end up like Koichoco…
For those into cosplaying, BOO-COS has the Karumaruka seifuku for sale. I guess it would help if you’re a girl too.
I’ll be going on vacation until January 27th. Take care everyone and keep your imoutos warm during this cold winter!
Happy new eroge year! This year starts off with new company piriri’s Kimi to Boku to no Kishi no Hibi and a sequel in TENCO’s Eiyuu＊Senki GOLD. Akatsuki Works tries to promote the serious battle ADV genre with Bradyon Veda. It’s also Rakko-san’s last title, HOOKSOFT’s MeltyMoment. Don’t you love those tender moments?
So begins a new year, a Happy New Year to everyone, may we all hope for a better eroge year than last. Unfortunately for those of us who like a good game the year is off to a poor start with a set of games made more to copy the likeness whatever game from the previous years tickled the writers fancy. Sooner or later a new company will have to make something good, so good that it breaks the stale state of eroge these days.
A new year is upon us and it’s not a minute too late! There’s an exciting line-up this spring, but let’s first take a look at what happened in the past year. Oh, and there’s that little New Year’s resolution thing.
The end of the year can only mean one thing: it’s time to list the best eroge OPs of the previous year! Similar to past years, I’ve selected my favorite eroge OPs from 2013 based on song quality, visual arrangement and creativity. I’ve also included some console and all-ages titles. They are listed by release date and you can also view the entire playlist on Youtube. My top 5 this year are Pastel Chime 3, HapyMaher, LOVESICK PUPPIES, Negai no Kakera to Hakugin no Agreement and Sengoku†Koihime. Enjoy!
Windmill is revamping one of its popular titles with the E-mote system: Happiness! Emotion! Now you can have Jun seduce you in high quality too! Other new releases announced this week include:

onomatope* – Kanojo ga Ore ni Kureta Mono. Ore ga Kanojo ni Ageru Mono.
FLAT’s Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa has been delayed to February 28th, while release dates have been set for the following:
Saori kept first place in the second Timepiece Ensemble chara poll and will get a dakimakura. There’s a third chara poll which is starting up, ending on January 18th. The twins were both popular in the Izayoi no Fortuna chara poll, but it was Shigure who came out on top. Wait, how did Kanae beat Meguri in the Moteyaba chara poll??? Is this the power of the main heroine? I wanted a Meguri wallpaper… T_T
Lots of white in this week’s new figures available for preorder. They are 1/8 scale Saber from Fate/Extra CCC, coming out in June for ￥10,800, and 1/8 scale Sakuya -Mode: seraphim- from Shining Ark, shipping in May for ￥15,800.
I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays. Especially those off on crusades in a far away land.
tone work’s‘s 2nd title, Hoshiori Yume Mirai, looks pretty nice. However, I’m still relatively bitter over Hatsukoi 1/1 (or rather Runa), so I’m not sure if I want to walk into another landmine just yet…
Oh hey, it’s another stripping game from Escu:de! Just the silhouettes are up for Hanayome to Maou ~Oushitsu no Harem wa Gekokujou~, but I’m definitely hoping for more content to be revealed soon! Their games are awfully fun to play, especially with all the ridiculous premises ^^
Other new titles announced this week include:
ensemble – Golden Marriage
Innocent Grey – FLOWERS (April 18th)
MOONSTONE – Love Sweets (April 25th)
ωstar – Bishoujo Mangekyou Katsute Shoujo no Kimi e (February 28th)

The fourth volume of the LOVELY×CATION2 raburabu birthday collection features genki kouhai Hinata! It comes out on her birthday, January 23rd. There’s also other music CDs coming out in the same month: Actress vocal collection “Akukore!!” (January 24th), light vocal collection V (January 31st) and the ElectroArms OP/ED Maxi CD.
Konosora continues to fly high with a console version planned from 5pb., Kono Aozora ni, Tsubasa o Hirogete -Cruise Sign-.
For some reason, Overflow has a game for the 3DS coming out in spring 2014 called Island Days. I thought they were done making games?
This week’s batch of C85/Denkigai dakimakura are: Kiraoto‘s Yuri, ElectroArms‘ Leona, Tsukioto‘s Runa and Otomeriron‘s Risona, LoveOf‘s Isami (Isanyan) and Erika, Natsukumo‘s Shiho and Himeka, Chiikano‘s Shione and Mizuka, Owaba‘s Ili and Cassandra, Berry’s‘ Ena and Youko and Kurafuta‘s Yae and Mikoto.
I also want the Palette 10th anniversary calendar, which showcases all their games.
Finished up Moteyaba and Meguri is such a great imouto. It’s nice to see her feelings for her dear nii-san get through. Yurika is also pretty cute with her blushing. Can’t say no to a small senpai (who’s more like a kouhai). The plot wasn’t anything to write home about, but it was a nice chara-ge. I was intending to play Sakuoto, but I’ve been swamped with things to do in this holiday season.
Merry Christmas to all! Hope you can find some time during the holidays to be with your bishoujos.
