New Title from YuzuSoft!
YuzuSoft has announced their next title: Noble Works! Takumi takes the place of a boy who looks just like him and ends up going to a school for the famous. I can already see a Cinderella-style ending. Agumi Oto isn’t listed as a seiyuu, but maybe she’s using another pseudonym again (hopefully). It’s scheduled to come out this winter. Also coming out this winter is Lump of Sugar‘s Hello, good-bye, illustrated by Moekibara Fumitake. The story revolves around a group of young boys and girls who searches for the truth in a world full of lies.
Other new releases announced this week include:
Abelia & GutenTag – Navi navi Ocean (August 27th)
ApRicoT – Ouka Sengoku ~Nobunaga-chan no Koishite Yabou!?~
Lass – 11eyes -Resona Forma-
Nounai Kanojo – Zettai Imouto Genri Shugi!! (October 29th)
Purple Software – Hatsukoi Sacrament
Purple Software delight – Orange Memories
SkyFish – Yotsuiro Passionato!
TEATIME – Icha Comu +
Release dates have been set for the following:
Hoshikaka sure has been delayed a lot of times already. However, feng made a surprise update on the official site… Minato from Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka is appearing as a guest character! No, she’s not a heroine if you’re wondering.
Navel has made a Twitter account. Now they can exploit promote the latest SHUFFLE! or Oretsuba game even more.
Aka has topped the second chara poll for Acchi Muite Koi as well. Meteo placing third is quite a surprise to me. Bandage moe perhaps? Clochette has started up a chara poll for Amatsu Misora ni!, which runs until July 1st. Of course I’ll be voting for Miyu. The post-release chara poll for Prism Rhythm runs until July 16th. Gin is currently leading. The chara poll for Utatemeguri runs until June 30th.
The Blu-ray and DVD for Shukufuku no Campanella anime will feature a Carina short… in 3D! It’s a first for anime! On the topic of Campanella, there’ll be a manga coming out featuring the Tortilla twin sisters.
Interesting new light novel coming out in June from Shueisha Super Dash: Haruka Kanata no Nendaiki. The male lead Yuu looks like a girl and has two personalities due to an accident. He meets Katia who has a past that she doesn’t want anyone to know about. The story’s main theme is friendship. I like the shading on the coloured illustrations. Meanwhile, light novel MM is being made into an anime.
ETERNAL has released a demo video of the dungeon exploration system in their upcoming title Ten no Hikari wa Koi no Hoshi. Looks fun especially with the characters talking while walking around, but I hope the encounter rate isn’t too high.
ALTER has made a 1/8 scale figure of Buddy from Kimi ga Yobu, Megiddo no Oka de. I’m sure Hemi will be thrilled. She will be out this October for 8190 yen.
Orchid Seed’s Super Sonico shimapan ver. is definitely eyecatching. This 1/7 scale figure will be out this October for 7800 yen. I’m still not sure when she got popular, as well as how her upcoming game Sonicomi will be.
SHOT MUSIC is releasing bishoujo game remix collection SUPER SHOT2 next week on June 25th. Featured songs include the OPs from Little Busters!, Tayutama, Hoshimemo, Kimiyobu and Angel Ring. I usually prefer the original songs instead of remixes, but some of them are decent. Check out the PV here.
Looking at Cospa’s school uniform for Oreimo, I just realized how plain it is. Is it really worth 17000 yen? But I guess seifuku usually aren’t too different from one another.
Didn’t notice it until now but ARTJEUNESS is a nice illustrator info site.
You know it’s only a matter of time until there’s a book devoted to sukumizu, appropriately named Sukumizu Daisuki!. It has everything you want to know about sukumizu, from the different types and history to how to wear and take them off (with illustrations for each school level). Priced at a reasonable 1500 yen and comes out on June 22nd.
No underage zettai ryouiki in some UK schools.
Not exactly anime-related, but… Donkey Kong Country Returns has been announced for the Wii! GO DIDDY!!!
As you know, my hard drive died on Monday and I’m trying to recover my files from it. In the meantime, I’ve been using the laptop to write this post up. I’m extremely sad that I can’t play Riaimo, but I’m still getting my daily dose of imoutos after finishing Oreimo v6 and starting up (and almost finishing) Famima! this week. Kyousuke is such an awesome oniichan!!! Also, spending my newly-found free time listening to the vuvuzela concerts.
Guess no one noticed Zen’s mischievousness last week. (Well, neither did I…)
Firstly, thank you for your awesome blog! I just started playing eroges/visual novels – even if I can’t understand a word in Japanese, relying strongly on those text hookers to do the job – and I’m really enjoying the genre, often coming back to Omochikaeri for news about such games (also clapping at least once per visit :p). Keep up with the excellent work!
So, I would like to ask you about Fizz’s Mashiro Botan. I read it has a beautiful story and I loved the character art, so I would like to play it. But I installed it in a Windows 7 64-bits and the game doesn’t run… Do you know if there’s a way to make it work? I searched a lot about it, but couldn’t find anything.
I’ve got to say, though, that I’m not playing an original version of this game, unfortunately… I looked for it in ErogeShop, but its price is quite high, as well as Flyable Heart, which is another game I’d like to buy (and it worked in my computer without any effort). There’s also Garden (which also worked), but I can’t find it anywhere (also, Amazon doesn’t ship software products to Brazil, so I can’t really consider buying them there)…
I’ll be trying Tenso soon, but I’m not feeling confident enough to place an order there right now.
Hum… Sorry for my bad English… And thanks in advance! xD by Fabricio
Hi there, Fabricio! Thanks for the webclaps and taking the time to write such a long comment. I’m glad you like the blog ^^ Don’t worry, your English is quite good! I really with Amazon shipped games too… (and lower shipping costs, but that’d never happen >_>)
I haven’t played Fizz’s Mashiro Botan, but I don’t recall their games having any problems (at least for me on Vista). Maybe check your regional/language settings, and if that doesn’t work, try to run it under XP since it’s an older game? If installation completely properly, I don’t know why it wouldn’t run… Sorry I’m not too helpful here.
Micchiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, your pc is dead? ç__ç
Come back to us! xD by feal87
Well luckily I have a laptop, so I can still work on the blog and waste time on the internet. However, I can’t play any imouto-ge T_____T I was so depressed when I got home from work on Monday, looking forward to ichaicha with Shiori and Mai, and being greeted by a black screen…
