Wafu~! No More Cabbage!

April 4, 2010 at 10:48 pm 12 comments

Hope you all had a happy April Fools’ Day ^^ My fav ones among the eroge companies are ALcot’s Ouhama Yukino no Shoushitsu, FrontWing’s Loveriel Plus and CIRCUS’ Kotori Love Ex P on a floppy. A selected list of the April Fools’ announcements are available after the jump. As usual, some of the news on April 1st actually turn out to be (partially) true. ALcot is making a fandisk for Osananajimi wa Daitouryou. Other new titles include:

DandelionChougen Yuuki Mugen Finity
ILLUSIONSchool Mate 2
raiL-softAlbatross Koukairoku

The newest company on the eroge scene is SEVEN WONDER. Their official site will open on April 21st. I totally agree with their motto: A merry heart will make you happy. Speaking of mottos, Alicesoft has changed their logo to emphasize that they’re an eroge maker.

Highly anticipated Kud Wafter is scheduled for June 25th! Wafu~! key also announced that Rewrite will be all ages, although they got some people’s hopes up on April 1st (気分はエクスタシー!!). Also scheduled for June 25th is CIRCUS’ RPG Gakuen.

Floating Material has a release date again: April 30th. I’ve added it back to the April releases post. Koi to Mizugi to Taiyou to has been delayed two months to July 30th.

The Angel Ring chara poll has started up and will run till April 30th. Sana is in first! 妹は世界! Eru won the second Osananajimi wa Daitouryou chara poll with over a third of all votes. Joseph finished dead last.

Danny Choo has opened his own anime studio Mirai Fusion. The first series will be CHINKA, which is about the battle in the rural town of Kiyotaki between the Mizuneko fire brigade and the legendary arsonist Akaneko. Art is cute, but those hose accessories on Chinka look hideous. Also, casting DC mascot Mirai as a subcharacter is too forced.

The new PS3 adaptation of WHITE ALBUM will come out on May 27th with revamped graphics. Sakura Sakura (GN Software), Shin Koihime Musou (Yeti, June 24th) and Shukufuku no Campanella are the latest eroge to be ported over to the PSP. CLANNAD is also getting spinoff stories for the PSP (June), as well as a port to the PS3.

SEGA is making a K-ON! game. No info on console, genre or release date yet.

August’s popular title Fortune Arterial is getting an anime! Let’s hope it fares much better than Yoake of legendary cabbage fame.

According to Kuroneko‘s twitter account, there might be Oreimo puchi nendoroids coming out from GSC! The Oreimo drama CD came out last week, although I haven’t bought it yet. I plan to get it along with volume 6 of the light novel.

There’s a saying that if you’re still a virgin at 30, then you’ve become a magician (30歳まで童貞だったら魔法使いになれる). What if you don’t want to become a magician? Well, with the latest 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku: Koi no Doryoku Hen, you can transform from your current otaku self to an ikemen! Disclaimer: The author of this guide does not have a girlfriend.

The next theme for Cure Maid Cafe is D.C.! Yume’s drink looks inedible (it’s actually melon soda, vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce). I’m disappointed that there’s no Miharu extra large banana parfait.

    I’d hate to take all the screenshots like what you did.
    There’s just too much TV Drama adaptation joke that it loses the joke effect itself.

  • 2. Amoirsp  |  April 5, 2010 at 3:19 am

    Hm, Fortune Arterial getting an anime? That’s news to me. Was wondering when that would occur considering August games have a simple premise enough and had been adapted before.

  • 3. seele00  |  April 5, 2010 at 5:12 am

    Those April Fool’s Jokes either cracked me up or left a question mark in my head. I first saw the Osadai FD Haruhi parody in TLWiki, but I thought it was real.

    I hope they don’t botch the Fortune Arterial anime. Not just art but story-wise as well.

  • 4. Hamu-Sumo  |  April 5, 2010 at 7:50 am

    The funny thing is that Chinka was meant to be an April’s Fool joke either but due the preparations (posting news and so on) Danny did before April 1st it got so much response in the web that it’s now a full title. :D

  • 5. Wrathkal  |  April 5, 2010 at 11:26 am

    Lol, nice April Fool’s. Thanks a lot!

  • 6. Arioch  |  April 5, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    “zen no deredere sugata…?”

    I lol’d, then got curious…btw yume’s drink remember me of Goosebumps logo.

  • 7. Reltair  |  April 7, 2010 at 12:55 am

    Oh wow, I didn’t even know about the Type-Moon April Fool’s. TMitter, gg.

    The RO one: “No Beer No Life!”, lol.

  • 8. GarethXL  |  April 8, 2010 at 6:08 am

    hmm the rewrite anocment has an extreamly high chance to be real :p

    • 9. GarethXL  |  April 8, 2010 at 6:09 am

      ohh and i wish some of the others were true too, especially the magical koihime movie XD

  • 10. Zakarum  |  April 10, 2010 at 2:13 am

    It may be worth noting that AliceSoft, while emphasizing that they IS EROGE MAKER, are likely to be blocking foreign access soon for reasons that don’t need to be stated.

    And how about that upcoming Valkyrie Complex anime… lol…

  • 11. Micchi  |  April 11, 2010 at 2:10 am

    @Kresnik: April 1st is always a field day :D

    @Amiorsp: Ya, all the August games have been adapted (well Binary Pot as an H anime, but I digress…)

    @seele00: So long as there’s no return of the cabbage.

    @Hamu-Sumo: This is why you shouldn’t do AF posts before the actual date! You might actually have to carry through with it! Well… in this case, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But consider if it’s Zen saying that he loves imoutos. I’d make him play every imouto route from now on then. Like I already am doing anyway.

    @Wrathkal: You’re welcome :)

    @Arioch: Haha, Goosebumps. That’s a name I remember. I’m curious about this hidden side too…

    @Reltair: No yggs no life!

    @GarethXL: Too bad it’s not real. I WANT A MERURU ANIME SO BAD. Well, Oreimo too!

    @Zakarum: lol VC anime

    • 12. GarethXL  |  April 11, 2010 at 6:19 am

      nuuu~~~ why do you have to crush my dreams TT.TT
