Inevitable Localization Problems
There’s only one new game announced this week: Qualiaffordance by Shelf. Release dates have been set for the following games:
Galge.com is closing down after 7 years of providing eroge news, summaries and PVs. I haven’t used them much since Getchu offers the same information, but it’s still sad to see a well-known site go.
The chara poll for You∽Gaku finished with Sekka edging Misha. I personally think Misha is better… or Iroha, who finished a distant 7th. Ria won the Mercuria chara poll by 3 votes over Ai. New chara polls started up for Hime to Majin to Koisuru Tamashii and Can☆Fes.
Meteor has started up a Twitter account, if anyone is interested in following them.
Among the new light novels this month is Yuurei Nanka Mienai! (ゆうれいなんか見えない！) by Murasaki Yukiya (むらさきゆきや) with illustrations by Munyuu (むにゅう), who drew the art for Ladies versus Butlers!. I think the appeal should be for lolicons as the main girl is a 3rd grader who helps get rid of spirits.
Pokémon Black and White are coming out this fall in Japan. I wonder if they’ll get title changes during localization.
Griffon’s 1/8 scale figure of Touhou‘s Tewi comes out this July. Price is 6800 yen. Looks quite cute.
A wake-up call from a ‘goddess’ is expensive.
I never knew slots could be so captivating. Then again, Higurashi makes everything better.
There’s going to be a real life ‘Otakukko Atsumare‘ event on June 20th. For those aren’t familiar with Oreimo, this is the name of the initial gathering where Kirino first met Kuroneko and Saori. This event is an Oreimo doujin event and cosplay is encouraged. I wonder if it’s limited to girls, or are crossdressers allowed too…
Speaking of Oreimo, I just finished up volume 5 and it’s been pretty captivating so far. Kirino and Kuroneko are pretty much tied as my favorite characters. Can’t wait until May for vol 6! ^o^
I just noticed Zen’s avatar is now Kayako. The expression is much different than the Sayukahime one. by Amoirsp
Very observant of you. He changed it again though.
I wanted to see how that one would look without shopping but I didn’t like it much. So I have since changed it to a different Kayoko and have shopped the old one to look better. I will revert it to the better version sometime later after I get bored of kayozilla.

What’s the matter, oh ponderous one?
