Once Again, From the Beginning…

January 2, 2010 at 2:12 am 12 comments

Another year has wrapped up, with Comiket 77 and Denkigai Akihabaragai Matsuri 2 being held this week.

CIRCUS continues the D.C. trend with a Kotori-centric game: Kotori Love ExP. I wonder if this will be related to D.C.I.F. or if this will be just a collaboration of all the past Kotori scenarios. Other new games this week are:

Caramel BoxOtome wa Boku ni Koishiteru Futari no Elder
CLOCKUPNoblesse Oblige
KamilleOshikake! Entremets
manaMare Mare Mare SP (March 26th)
Minato SoftMaji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! S
Rainbow CycMagical Moerin R

Kamille is a new company. The official site will be open on January 21st. KISS’ sister brand Orange Pekoe will also reveal their debut game on that day. August will also reveal their next game early in 2010.

It makes sense that Majikoi will get a fandisk as it topped Getchu’s sales rankings for 2009. Rounding out the top 5 are Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle-, Mashiroiro Symphony, Tayutama -it’s happy days- and Tenshin Ranman.

Release dates have been announced for the following:

Maximum Magic – March 26th
DEAR DROPS – April 23rd
Utatemeguri – May 28th

Meanwhile, Subarashiki Hibi has been pushed back a month to March 26th.

The chara poll for Coμ has started and will last till January 31st. Meanwhile, Line (Letty) won the Fake Azure Arcology chara poll with 30.3% of all votes. Trap Mutsuki gets a wedding dress wallpaper after placing at the top of the Usodere! chara poll. Is this a lie too?

Doujin circle Kakusan Fuudou‘s all ages ADV Tori Yume was released this week at Comiket 77. I like the simple, yet polished art. RABBIT-GARDEN‘s second work will be Satsuki-iro no Sora ni. When Shuuya was small, those things precious to him disappeared no matter how much he wished otherwise, so now he hopes to live a normal unchanging life. Story sounds promising. No release date has been set.

Some more info about upcoming Xbox360 game Chaos;Head Love Chu☆Chu!. This spinoff story is based on Takumi’s dream world and even includes a ‘delusion trigger’ system. So basically, it’s a fandisk.

In addition to Seitokai no Ichizon for the DS, Sora no Otoshimono and GA -Geijutsuka Art Design Class- are also being adapted into console games (both for the PSP). SoraOto will be an angeloid raising ADV, while GA follows original character Marianne (Mari) and her adventures in the picture book world with the GA cast.

Check out the latest PV for upcoming April anime series Angel Beats!. It is a collaboration of Maeda Jun and Na-Ga from key and ASCII Media Works. I still think there are too many resemblances to Haruhi. Is the name of the protagonist, Otonashi, a reference to the voicelessness of most visual novel leads?

K-ON! has been green-lighted for a second season. I’m all up for more Yui and Azunyan, but what else is there left to talk about? Oh, maybe more performances would be nice.

Shin Koihime Musou ended recently, but a second season has been announced already to cover characters that haven’t appeared yet. There are so many…

Accompanying the Vocaloid Season Collection: Snow Songs CD is a “newly designed Winter version of Miku’s Petite Nendoroid” by GSC. Ok, it’s not new at all. It’s just an awful color change with snowflake stickers on her hair and tie. As much as Miku is popular and it makes sense to milk the fans, this is pretty bad. Please just focus on making new figures (a Sana one would be nice).

Mashiroiro chiffon cake. So cute and yummy.

Swooning over Jun? Want more of Shinobu? There’s a new magazine solely devoted to traps, WAaI!.

There were imouto bra and panties for sale at Comic High’s C77 booth. They should’ve been striped.

Webclap responses:

nou stop owning aion with ur fish lulz

Hi! :D I just wanted to clap… I don’t know who you are though. Time to look at your blog-thingy! Kudos!~ by Tony
Haha, clapping is fun. Maybe I should put up more images than just the kitty…

I am the only one right? Right?! by K1
Not this week!

Four hours from now (at least from my time zone), it will strike 12. Anyways, Happy New Year! Keep blogging. by Anonymous
Happy new year! Thanks for the support!

Happy New Year, Micchi!
May your 2010 be full of imouto! by DawningBlue

Happy new year, DawningBlue! I hope to meet (and take home) even more cute and awesome imouto this year! ^____^

    I think that Kotori Love ExP definitely looks like the PC port of D.C.I.F. (some of the CGs shown are definitely from I.F.), which sort of begs the question of why they changed the name so much so that it doesn’t even include “D.C.” in it anymore. Perhaps, as you suspect, they’ll be throwing in all the content from the other games as well to make it a sort of “super-pack”. I guess having Kotori’s name right in the title is probably a selling point as well (sort of takes a page out of Key’s book in that regard).

    Also of interest to English-speaking fans is that MangaGamer announced earlier this year that the game was already on their project plans. Could we see the world’s first simultaneous bilingual eroge release by a Japanese publisher? Time will tell, but that sure would be neat.

    hmm lets see
    majikoi FD – as long as it expend kuri route i’ll be interested in it ba~ka.

    Angel Beats -i hope both maeda jun and naga would hurry finish with this project and hurry get Rewrite and Kud Wafter out ASAP.
    Kudryavka Noumi love :D
    *nom nom nom*

    I seem to recall that MangaGamer indicated they would be bringing over the all-ages D.C.I..F. but ported for the PC.

    >>Caramel Box – Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru Futari no Elder

    Holy crap, this was a bit surprising…

  • 5. Wrathkal  |  January 3, 2010 at 1:17 am

    Guess Majikoi must be really good if its that popular. I managed to d/l a C77 doujin of it. Not often you see doujins of eroge that have yet to receive anime adaptation.

    • 6. GarethXL  |  January 3, 2010 at 4:09 am

      not really.

      although the climax battle scenes were well written, not all of the individual route are satisfying (especially miyako route), on the other hand chris is one of the best develop tsundere that one can find. that and i the PM is one BAMF (i wish my countries PM was like him >_>)

  • 7. Heinsia  |  January 3, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    a psp game for GA ? That sure is great :D wonder how the gameplay would be xD

    I’ve always thought the 2 girls from angel beats look like haruhi and yuki, hope their personalities are different >_>

  • 8. Micchi  |  January 10, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    @relentlessflame: Hmm, a bilingual simul-release would be quite a step forward in the eroge industry. I don’t think it’s reasonable for most companies, but for CIRCUS and other ‘big’ names, it’s certainly viable should they wish to do so. Actually, MOONSTONE has already done it for the iPhone, albeit with sketchy translations.

    @GarethXL: I used to be waiting for Rewrite, but I think I want Kudo more now!

    @meganeshounen: It was surprising to me too, considering how long it’s been. Will we get to see cameos from the old cast? I sure want to see more Kana and Yukari…

    @Wrathkal: There was a doujin of Natsunagi, but no Hitsuji…

    • 9. relentlessflame  |  January 11, 2010 at 12:05 am

      Well, Moonstone’s Gift iPhone app wasn’t a simultaneous release or anything, and beyond the translations being super-sketchy, it has fatal crashing bugs that still haven’t been fixed months after release (sent them a bug report and everything, but no response). So yeah, it was definitely a “throw out there” release just for the sake of doing it, and wasn’t even done in-house. I do agree, though, that Circus could certainly pull it off if they wanted to… we’ll see!

      • 10. relentlessflame  |  January 13, 2010 at 10:56 pm

        So here’s a weird fluke — *or maybe not…* Only two days after posting this comment, the Gift iPhone app people finally released an update that describes itself as a “Repaier [sic] for script bugs”. So hey, it might actually work now!

        • 11. Micchi  |  January 17, 2010 at 8:33 pm

          Hurrah! Patches are good!

  • 12. ( o _ o )/  |  October 28, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    Super late extra dumb post to inform whoever reads this that there’s a character in Tori Yume that’s voiced by a Russian gaijin. Definitely inspirational for other hopeful gaijin. :3
