Double the News, Double the Fun
I’m safely back home having escaped the nice boat and surviving a week without internet (No regrets). There’s two weeks of news to go through, so bear with me since this will be long. There was even enough imouto-related material to warrant a Micchi special imouto section. Without further ado, let’s get down to it!
ABHAR Rousalka – Mahonyo!
Atelier Kaguya – Puri Sara (September 18th)
CIRCUS – Princess Party Camellia (September 18th)
DIVA – DIVA!DIVA!DIVA!
FLAT – Utatemeguri
Nounai Kanojo – Usodere!
SCORE – Zettai Maou
XUSE – Seirei Tenshou
Release dates have been revealed for the following titles:
The following eroge have been delayed:
Clarissa fans will be happy to know that the premium edition of HOOK‘s @HoneyComing RoyalSweet will include a mini fandisk for her. This edition combines the fandisk with a renewal version of the original game, which has some system changes.
Celebrating their 6th anniversary, Galge.com is holding the Galge.com Award 2009 for best eroge ever. After 5 weeks of nominations, there are 20 finalists. Voting runs until August 5th. Of course, there are some notable omissions as well some surprising finalists. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m voting for DCIIPC. Oh CIRCUS, what have you done to me…
A bunch of figures have been revealed lately, including ALTER’s figure of Little Busters‘ Kudo (7140￥, Nov ’09), Konata summer uniform figma by Max Factory (2500￥, August 31st) and Good Smile Company’s nendoroid Reimu from Touhou (3000￥, Aug ’09). I like the mattari expression for Reimu and the Yutaka accompaniment for the Konata figure.
In addition, as nemuiwanko reported, there’s a nendoroid Mio from K-ON!, as well as a figure of Kyrie from Valkyrie Complex. There’s also some new pics of Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Yume (3500￥, Oct ’09) at moeyo.com. I love the choco banana!
Comiket 76 is coming soon and almost all eroge makers have declared their participation, as well as what limited items they will bring to their table. The ones that caught my eyes are:
Hoshizora no Memoria’s Mare, Yume and Komomo dakimakura covers (FAVORITE)
The most adorable Tayutai from Tayutama (Lump of Sugar)
Prim dakimakura from Primary (SkyFish)
Koiiro Sora Moyou‘s Mikoto dakimakura (Studio Ryokucha)
Mayuri and MAXX t-shirts from Flyable Heart (UnisonShift Blossom)
Tenshin Ranman visual fan book, OST and Sana dakimakura (YuzuSoft)
Cospa made a stuffed Panya doll from Palette’s Mashiroiro Symphony. I’m amazed there’s already merchandise for a game that won’t be out for 3 months. Then again, it’s really cute, so I’m not complaining! Palette’s blog also has posted some in-game screenshots. Looks promising!
Let me present you the results from last week’s Koiiro Sora Moyou poll. What is your favorite pet? Imouto (36.6%); Cat (25.8%); Dog (17.3%). It’s obvious what I voted for. This week’s poll is your favorite way to be called. I was thinking of using nicknames, but… やっぱり「お兄ちゃん」ほうがいい！
The results from the Valkyrie Complex chara poll have Kyrie placing first, followed by Filriya and Mikoto. Eris finished 4th, while Mapul was 7th. The most surprising is that the treasure chest finished 6th!
The chara poll for Primary ends on July 26th and results will be revealed on July 31st. Voting is through the game, which I’m currently playing. I like all the chars, but Puripuri has won me over. 「プリプリと言うな！」 Puripuri led at the halfway point count.
In celebration of 1 million hits, eroge review fansite かめのこおらの休憩所 is running a kouhai poll until July 31st. Aside from imoutos, I also love genki kouhai types, so I’m not sure if I should be voting for Wanko (Miharu from DC) or Ebi (Minase from Bra-ban!). Such a tough choice…
The website for the is up, along with the seiyuu. I can’t wait to hear Yuka. On the topic of anime seiyuus, Comptiq has listed the CV for the 7 stakes of purgatory for Umineko no Naku Koro ni. Most of them were also in K-ON!…
Touka Gettan‘s PS2 port is scheduled for October 1st.
The most recent 77 (Sevens) comic was pretty funny.
Now for some imouto news! First of all, enjoy some niyaniya moments off Niconico: スーパー妹タイム！！ Ahhh… I can see now why Yaya is so loved. よるよる万歳！
Normally, I wouldn’t even care for H-focused eroge and yaruge, but two have caught my eye recently. First is MoonStone Cherry‘s Icha Puri!. They decided to not only make moe games, but to make them ecchi too. This debut work features not only a bracon true imouto, but also another loli that calls our lucky protagonist Masaki ‘onii-sama’. Definitely will check this out…
The second has a similar name: TEATIME‘s Icha Comu. This mini game is available for download off Akibain.com starting July 31st. There’s only one character… and she’s an extremely cute imouto. That blush is KILLER. Well, it’s a yaruge after all, but I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the ‘onii-chan~’ calling.
Results from the Imouto Smile ideal imouto poll were announced in the most recent issue of TECH GIAN. The final two imouto are a blonde twin-tail tsundere otaku imouto and a silver long-haired occult-loving mysterious imouto. No mention about size. I personally think the twin-tail tsundere is too common nowadays, although I’m very curious about the mysterious imouto!
The HCG for Angel Navigate‘s Koharu doesn’t make her look like an imouto at all. I am sorely disappointed.
I can get back into MoonStone’s site now ^o^ Is this a sign that the worst is over?
DancexMixer is fun, but takes some time to design a well choreographed dance.
WordPress recently added a Gravatars widget, so I used it to replace the old Authors widget on the sidebar. Each writer is associated with a color, so you can recognize whose post it is from the color of the opening paragraph (Note: if there is no color, it’s Micchi’s since I write so much… or the others are too lazy busy). Clicking on the avatar will bring you to their section on the ‘Authors’ page, from where you can view a list of their posts.
Which server did you guys play on? I’m kind of torn between playing in my national server or some other server. Not to mention that playing in more than one server would be too much inefficient. by Kresnik
There was more than 1 server? o_O Well, I was playing on the Malaysian server during CB, but that’s over now. Waiting for OB to begin…
alicesoft is soon to release another game @_@ by Algester
Ya, I noticed that. Boku Dake no Hokenshitsu, right? It came out today, but I wasn’t interested in it. Or did you mean Momoiro Guardian?

またお前かっ！？That’s good to know. It seems that it’s getting popular and I have absolutely no problems with that!
