Oreimo Anime Announced!

May 2, 2010 at 3:10 am 13 comments

Popular light novel Ore no Imouto wa Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai will be getting an anime adaptation! YESSSS!!!! The production studio is AIC, while the seiyuu will be the same as in the drama CD. Notably Kirino is voiced by Taketatsu Ayana (Azunyan) and Kuroneko by Hanazawa Kana (Nadeko, Tenshi). I’m quite satisfied with the cast, so I think this will turn out quite well. Both Zen and I follow the light novel, so this is a wish come true. I always wanted to hear the Meruru OP, although I can’t say the same for Zen.

It’s Golden Week in Japan. Dream Party 2010 Tokyo is also running on May 3rd at Tokyo Big Sight. New games announced this week include:

Citron SoftHatsukoi Time Capsule ~Osananajimi to Kya Kya Ufufu~
sugar pot+Oyome Command (August 27th)

Similar to Citron Soft’s previous title Imouto Smile, Hatsukoi Time Capsule focuses on one moe trait. In this case, it’s osananajimi. Also, they’re holding a poll to decide the 5th character. So I’m looking at the characters… Anna is an amaenbou osananajimi kouhai who acts like an imouto, has semi-long hair and wears ribbons and a beret. You’ve definitely caught my attention, Citron Soft.

Release dates have been announced for the following titles:

School Mate 2 – June 25th
Steal My Heart – July 30th

Navel’s remake Soul Link Unlimited will feature 50% more content, plus 150 more CGs and 1 more heroine (Nanami?). Meanwhile, the demo for key’s Rewrite will only be available from Kud Wafter.

There will be a series of 2 week long polls for Shin Koihime Musou Moeshouden to determine wallpapers. The first poll (until May 13th) is which character you would like to drink coffee with in the morning while they are dressed only in a Y-shirt. I have to go with Sui; She’ll be so totally flustered. The second chara poll for RGH runs till May 9th. Genshu won the first one.

Of course, Sana wins the Angel Ring chara poll! She lead from beginning to end.

The second chapter to doujin maker Luna System‘s Nanagane Gakuen will come out on August 18th, shortly after C78.

Kogado Studio’s upcoming game Shirogane no Cal to Aozora no Jouou is scheduled for a June 25th release.

Upcoming on the XBox360 in August: Ore no Yome ~Anata Dake no Hanayome~ by Idea Factory. As the name suggests, you pick the type of char you like (imouto, osananajimi, tsundere, etc) and enjoy a ‘married life’ together. Similar to Kokuhaku, there’s a choice of two seiyuus per each of the chara types. How does Kugimiya Rie voicing an imouto sound?

With all the recent talk about Yui nyan, I still think Azunyan is better. Just look at how cute Azone’s Azusa doll is!

Max Factory’s figure of Shining Wind‘s Clalaclan (swimsuit ver) doesn’t leave much to be imagined. Price is a reasonable 6800 yen with a late October release date.

Yamato is making a figure of Nitro+’s Super Sonico (Sonicomi). Looks quite cute, although the mini fridge looks a bit out of place.

Naruse Mia is retiring as a seiyuu after 10 years in the business, although she’ll continue as an SD artist. Now the interesting thing is that her role (Salsa) in the upcoming Shukufuku no Campanella anime was replaced by Yunohara Ari, who sounds… the same. Maybe it’s just a name change to separate from eroge.

Imouto usually means shimapan. However, that’s not all that they wear! Check out Yoiko no Moekko!, a mook dedicated to imouto pantsu with lots of illustrations and some short stories. Quite a deal at 1300 yen, if I may say so myself.

A new Gundam Cafe opened in Akihabara. I know it’s 950 yen, but that Haro swiss roll is very tempting.

It’s been one year since I started writing the weekly news. I hope you have found them interesting and informative.

As you probably noticed, there was a family emergency so I haven’t had much time the past few days to be at the computer, much less write posts. I do plan on finishing the monthly post by the end of this upcoming week though.

Webclap responses:
It’s kind of sad that fan translations are being taken down, no? First it was Eden*. Then just recently, Yosuga no Sora was also taken down. What other projects might be taken down? by seele00
It is a bit sad, but it’s a risk that the translators took when they started the project. It’s similar to subbing licensed anime. Well, not quite the same, but you get the idea.

    I’ve been (literally) jumping in joy myself when the news of an Oreimo anime came out. XD

    Too bad Naruse Mia is retiring, her voice is sweet, nice, and good enough for her to stay in the business for ten years, though most of it were loli voice.

    What does her SD art look like..? Or her alias as an SD artist..?

    “Then just recently, Yosuga no Sora was also taken down.”
    I died a little inside.

  • 5. Wrathkal  |  May 2, 2010 at 9:32 am

    What? Yosuga no Sora!? DAMN!!

    OreImo sounds interesting, I only read up to chapter 3 with Himatsubushi’s translation.

    • 6. Wrathkal  |  May 2, 2010 at 9:35 am

      Hmm, shld put an edit button I think.

      Micchi, are you going to be using the ‘YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS’ tag for such future good news? (20 ‘s’… did you count that exactly?)

      And yes, I found your weekly news update interesting to read. Especially those that link to nice pics.

    Glad to know I’m not the only one that feels a bit disappointed/sad that Naruse Mia is retiring. Also, @ Kresnik, I believe she did all the SD art in Shukufuku no Campellena (screw me, I can never spell the last word in that title)

  • 8. Ryan A  |  May 2, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    How does Kugimiya Rie voicing an imouto sound?

    Hmmm~ Intriguing. ^^

  • 9. warum  |  May 2, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    Hope that family emergency solves in a good way! Take care micchi.

  • 10. Amoirsp  |  May 3, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    I’ll have to be on the lookout for the oreimo anime. (Though I should just improve my japanese to be able to read the light novels instead).

    Looking forward to your May post reviews. Take care with the family emergency first.

  • 11. Reltair  |  May 4, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    The Oreimo anime has a fun premise, looking forward to some good comedy. That Azusa doll is adorable!

    Family always comes first, take care!

    Congrats for Oreimo getting anime adaption… Seriously Cross Days switch off my VN fagging for a while because FFFFF Yuuki x Makoto…. FFFFF seriously…

    Anyway i see Micchi like Koisora so i will start that… and where my Mare ??? Oh well anyway it good pic ^_^

  • 13. Micchi  |  May 9, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    @H.Jakoko, seele00, uis_kana: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Kresnik, Nis: Ya, she drew the SD for Campanella and ETOILES’ HimexHime and Elle:PrieR. She also draws a few illustrations for artbooks, such as Magicarat Radiant (one of the last games she voiced).

    @Wrathkal: I will consider it…

    @Ryan A: She also voices the tsundere ojousama in the game, but that’s typical.

    @warum, Amiorsp, Reltair: Thank you for the concern. It is very much appreciated.
