Lass has filed for bankruptcy. They were best known for 11eyes and their more recent titles haven’t garnered the same level of popularity. It’s a shame that old companies are going out of business, but there’ll be more to take their place.
MadoSoft’s fandisc Wagamama High Spec OC will feature after stories for each of the four heroines, plus routes for subheroines Karen, Chitose and Yukari. It is planned for August 25th. Other new titles announced this week include:

It’s Cinstage 5STEP this Sunday and I wish I could be there T___T I’d buy all the doujins of Miho, Miria, Miku, Nono, Arisu, Chie… I’d buy everything! Actually now that I think about it, it’s probably for the best I’m not gonna be there…
I didn’t play any eroge this past week (been watching a lot of hockey games instead), but I intend to finish Kuon’s route this week. So far I like Rin’s route more, but it’s not like I’m expecting too much from the story in the first place. The Rorolog HS trial also came out today if you’re interested.
KAI’s Majo to Tsurugi to Sen no Tsuki has been pushed back to April 28th.
Tech Arts is ceasing operations and illustrator Akaza has left the company. It encompasses such brands as May-Be SOFT and SQUEEZ. I particularly loved their Henshi~n! series for the sheer hilarity of the situations.
Akane has won the Bitch Sisters dakimakura chara poll and she’ll get two versions (one with graffiti and one without). The Silverio Trinity and Ouka Sabaki chara polls have started up and will run until March 20th and March 31st, respectively.
You still have a couple days to pre-order the Hanahime visual fan book that comes out on March 24th. It’s priced at ￥4320.

The Travelling August 2017 concert will be held at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall on July 23rd.
After a short route for Kanae, I’ve moved on to Kuon’s route in Rorolog. Saving Kotone for last ^^
Don’t dwell on the reduced number of games of the previous month, we’ve got plenty of promising games on the way! Live with an imouto android in minori’s TRINOLINE and seek a happy end for a tragedy in Uguisu Kagura’s Suisou Ginka no Istoria. Gods will want you to worship them in Clochette’s Haruru Minamo ni! or perhaps they will come to help support you in your quest for love in HULOTTE’s Kamidanomi Shisugite Ore no Mirai ga Yabai.. If you just want some quality ichaicha, look no further than eRONDO’s Koinosu☆Ichacolize.
A month that is filled with mostly deceptively sub par games sadly. The majority are reliant on gimmicks to try and hook people into a purchase. On the other hand the few that are not are either nukige or fandisks. Only one game made it past the Zen filter this month, sad days.
Escu:de has announced Re;Lord Episode 3 ~Grossen no Maou to Saigo no Majo~. This final installment of the series will come out on July 28th. Other new titles announced this week include:
Release dates have been set for the following:
Lass Pixy had set the date for the second Pure Marriage game for April 28th… and then delayed it indefinitely the day after. It seemed like there must have been a mix-up somewhere.
The character poll for Unionism Quartet A3-DAYS will run until March 17th. It seems to be pretty close so far.
The Ginharu visual fan book will be on shelves on March 24th.
Shimotsuki Haruka’s 7th vocal works album “Musubine Ribbon” is planned for March 22nd. Each of the 2 CDs cost ￥3000, while the premium box (￥6700) comes with an acrylic key holder. AXL’s 6th vocal song collection, “Burn out”, comes out on April 28th. It is priced at ￥2315.
Congrats everyone! The Nekopara OVA kickstarter has topped $1 million thanks to the follow-up “Slacker Campaign”. Believe in the power of loli Chocola and Vanilla!
Kamiyaba has been like the past HULOTTE games: not much of a story, but a decent cast supported by prominent seiyuus, and plenty of H scenes. I’ve also got Full Kiss left to play before finalizing the March post.
calme has revealed this weekend that they are planning a sequel, KARAKARA 2. Other new titles announced this week include:
HARUKAZE’s Love of Ren’ai Koutei of LOVE! is getting a PSV port from Entergram. It is planned for May 25th.
WING has a 1/7 scale figure of Saya no Uta‘s Saya available for pre-order. It will be shipped in July and is priced at ￥17,820.
I thought that TRINOLINE would be my top pick of the month. I was wrong. After playing the trial for Uguisu Kagura’s Suisou Ginka no Istoria, I’m really looking to the full game! All the heroines play their part in an unfolding tragedy that uses cards as a motif. I like the story behind the apple and the lack of tears.
Since I’ve run out of trials for the time being (Kamiyaba‘s is scheduled to come out on the 22nd), I’ve finally started playing Rorolog. Rin is everything an onii-chan can ask from an imouto. Rin is best!
After many years of finishing second, YuzuSoft has finally secured the top prize in Getchu’s bishoujo game awards 2016! Senren＊Banka took first place, followed by Lose’s Maitetsu and August’s Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki. Senren was also voted as having the best OP, while Senmomo had the best graphics. Other winners are: RASK’s Re:LieF (scenario), GIGA’s BALDR HEART (system), Purple Software’s Amatsutsumi (music), and ALICESOFT’s Tsumamigui 3 (ero). The biggest surprise is that Minato-kyun was voted as the top character! He’s the protagonist of Palette Qualia’s Otome＊Domain and very much a guy (although also a great wife…)! Congrats to all the winners!
A dakimakura poll has started up for Bitch Sisters. You have until February 24th to vote.
The PSV port for Frontwing’s ISLAND has been set for February 23rd.
The following new figures are available for pre-order:
With just an hour to go, the Nekopara anime OVA kickstarter has reached almost $950K. Since it has surpassed the $800K stretch goal, we’re gonna get a mini VN with young Chocola and Vanilla! Good job, everyone!
I’m quite liking the TRINOLINE trial right now. The art from minori is beautiful as always (I’ll pretend I didn’t see those huge jugs…), and the story is pretty interesting so far. Where can I get an imouto android?
