Foreign IP Restrictions on Official Sites
Sakura Sakura is finally out. I thought I would never see this day. See Zen? It came out before Tiara!
Earlier this week, minori blocked foreign IPs from accessing their website. Due to comments they have since received, they have posted an explanation regarding their decision. It makes a lot of sense from their standpoint. They have even recommended that concerned foreigners voice their opinion to the Japanese government (If you do so, please do it politely). YuzuSoft and MoonStone have already followed minori’s lead and it is quite possible that other companies may too. I sincerely hope that this is resolved soon. T__T
Dream Party Osaka is coming up on June 28th. All the major companies will be represented and will bring along limited merchandise to sell, as well as promotional items from upcoming games. Too bad I’m on the other side of the world or I’d so be there (and blow all my money).
New maker Armonica debuts with Skyprythem this fall. Those are some big eyes. Recently announced release dates include: Shakunage‘s Mimi o Sumaseba (August 28th), Eternal‘s Nega0 (August 28th), SilkSoft‘s Distance (September 18th) and Akatsuki Works‘ Coμ -Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku-. Nega0’s OP came out and it’s weird (but has karaoke!). The only one I’m interested of these is Mimisuma – Mio, Matsuri and Hinata are all so adorable >w<
Lillian and Penguin Parade are collaborating to make a 1/8 scale PVC figure of Misa from Twinkle Crusaders. It comes out on August 31st and costs 7140 yen. She stands 210mm tall. It looks like she’s cast-off. There’s a limited edition that includes shimapan and has a pink ブラックマ mini figure instead of it being black. More pictures here and here.
The Tenshin Ranman dakimakura poll has finished and Sana handily won with 1403 votes. Hime was second with 1132 points, edging out Aoi, who had 1020 points. Sana led the poll from beginning to end. See? Sana’s so much better than Hime. ^o^
In Koiiro Sora Moyou‘s chara poll, tsundere imouto Mikoto took the top spot with 26.2%, having led from start to finish. She was followed by maou Sera (21.4%) I wonder if it’s because of the Koiso-radio. Wanko Aya made a dash at the finish, but still ended up last with 15.4%. Since Mikoto won, there’ll be some merchandise featuring her, to be announced later.
Rin won the second Natsuiro Straight! chara poll and a mini-game devoted to her will come out on July 10th. I guess this makes up for the lack of a route for such an loveable imouto. The results for the first Imouto Smile poll will be revealed in the September issue of TECH GIAN that comes out on July 21st.
The second Natsuiro Penguin character poll is up at Little Princess. It lasts till August 7th. I guess I’ll vote for Korone. Primary also has a second character poll until July 26th. You can vote via the link on the opening screen of the game. MeroMeroCute‘s chara poll for Mahou Shoujo no Taisetsu na Koto. will run until July 17th.
Shou summons his courage and attempts once more to capture Gumi-chan’s love. Is it still too early?
I’ve added playlists for each month’s releases on my Youtube channel. The URL for the corresponding post is included in the description.
Started playing Da Capo II To You and loving every minute of it. I’m such a DC fan…
Responses to weekly webclaps will be included after the jump for weekly news posts from here on.
How are you? You understand English?
I’m doing well. Yes, I do ^o^
Go Sana~!! by Kotarou
Sana-chan’s awesome! But she’s mine!
I’ve finally checked out the chara voices in Mashiroiro. I swear Oto Agumi stars in every single imouto role in existence. by m3rryweather
It sure seems that way. Agumion imouto are dangerous. We’ve been wondering if Hitsuji is actually voiced by her under another name.
おっす！ by Accany
おっす！I look forward to your Sakura Sakura review.
sana best imouto ~ by Passerby
Indeed, Sana is the best imouto ever. Great at everything, so loving to her niisan…. I’m beginning to sound like a broken record.
