Panties Over Flowers
There’s a lot of new games announced this week. F&C continues the Canvas franchise with Canvas 4 Achrome Étude, which takes place 8 years after Canvas2. I wonder if we’ll see cameos (Kana will still be a pettanko).
Clochette‘s next game Kamikaze Explorer! will feature young kids with supernatural abilities. It seems like Clochette is leaning towards big breasted heroines lately. WHALE is Minato Soft’s sister brand and their debut game Ore no Tsure wa Hito de Nashi features a cast of non-human heroines. The rest of the new releases are:
chococo – Anekano
Escu:de – Akatoki! -Yume Koso Masare Koi no Mahou- (November 26th)

Skyfish’s Soukyuu no Soleil has been set for an October 29th release date.
Molamola.software’s debut game NO PANTS! comes out in a month. In the meantime, go spend some time playing their flash game Present Pantsu!. Basically you can chat with the girls in the student council room to increase affection, gather ‘pan’ from doing activities around the room such as cleaning up garbage, wiping the whiteboard and doing accounting, and then using the ‘pan’ to buy various types of underwear for the girls. Of course, they’ll pose for you in them. It’s real-time and refreshes every hour… a fun way to pass time!
Sei edged Sheren in the Shin Koihime Musou Moeshouden China dress poll. I can’t wait to see how she looks in it. Gin topped the Prism Rhythm post-release chara poll. She’ll get a commemorative wallpaper available for download shortly. By the way, Stitch was 6th.
It’s not often that you see eroge on the Wii. MileStone has created a fighting game Twinkle Queen featuring characters from G Senjou no Maou (Haru, Kanon, Yuki), Shin Koihime Musou (Touka, Karin, Sheren), Tayutama (Mashiro, Ameri, Mifuyu) and Shukufuku no Campanella (Carina, Chelsea, Agnes). It comes out on August 26th for 6090 yen. Up to 4 players can play at once, so it’d be great if you can get a bunch of friends together.
Oh my god. There’s a new playable character coming out in PangYa on August 5th. Her name is Nell and she is so adorable!! And she’s voiced by Sawashiro Miyuki too!
Dream Club ZERO comes out on the Xbox360 this winter with a new heroine Haruka. This prequel takes place 5 months prior to Dream Club. You can also change the host girls’ hairstyles. Yay, more Secchan~
With the popularity of zombies rising due to High School of the Dead, it’s a good time to point out that the first volume of Sankarea came out on July 16th. Furuya is a zombie-maniac who actually ends up meeting a real zombie girl Rea and has to take responsibility for her ending up that way. Zen likes it, while I do find the plot interesting… although I hate Rea’s father. Also, Wanko is best.
The Koiiro Sora Moyou visual fan book by TECH GIAN Style looks mighty fine with illustrations, short stories, character art and staff interviews! It’s 160 full color pages of Ruchie’s cute art. Must get!
The Oreimo radio hosted by Taketatsu Ayana (Kirino) and Hanazawa Kana (Kuroneko) is now accepting submissions for its 5 corners. They are:
1. Ore no Imouto wa Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai (cute imouto stories)
2. Otakukko Atsumare (fan mail)
3. ** no Imi ga Wakaranai Ken (net slang explanation)
4. Meruru vs Maschera (self-explanatory)
5. Jinsei Soudan (life advice)
I’m going to think a bit before submitting something. And Meruru is so much better! I plan to listen to all the recordings of course! Don’t miss it when it comes out in October!
The Oreimo OP will be sung by middle school duet Alice Kurara (アリス☆クララ). I listened to a sample of their songs on Niconico and wasn’t too impressed. Also, I check out some of the entries for the Oreimo ED contest. I particularly liked “Suki nan da mon!” and the arrangement for “Sweet(s)”. I wonder which ones will be chosen…
The highly anticipated CG anime CAT SHIT ONE by studio anima has come out on Youtube. If you can’t view it there, you can view it on Niconico. I was quite impressed with the quality of the animation, although I won’t view bunnies and camels the same way again. Packy and Botasky’s next appearance won’t be until next year.
The site for Encourage Films’ Wish Angel -Tsubasa wa Chiisai Keredo- is now up. They’re the ones that produced Ontama!.
Enterbrain has quite an interesting figure for everyone’s favorite character in Disgaea: Pleinair. This 1/7 scale PVC figure is scheduled for this October for 8190 yen.
Love Plus‘s characters become a little closer to 3D with Konami’s 1/8 scale figures of Manaka, Rinko and Nene. They are 6500 yen each and ships November 18th.
Mika-tan has posted up some pictures of the upcoming ActSta Nanoha from the Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha movie. The loli version is definitely better than StrikerS.
The last of WAVE’s Toradora! “Beach Queens” 1/10 scale figures is Minori (3990 yen). Coming out this December, you can also opt for the Dengeki special version (4220 yen) which includes a happy face option. Preorders close
The second set of GSC’s Angel Beats! puchi nendoroids features Tenshi, Otonashi and Yui. Comes out in November at 2100 yen.
Bandai is releasing the R-Style Bakemonogatari trading figures this October. You can choose among Hitagi, Mayoi and Nadeko. There’s also a rare Mayoi with different hair color. They stand 90mm tall and the cost is 735 for one or around 6615 yen for a box of 9.
pixiv is holding an illustration contest for Black Rock Shooter from July 16th until August 2nd. Submissions using the B★RS祭り2010 tag must be A4 size (210mm x 297mm) at 300dpi or higher. huke, BRS anime staff and GSC staff will look over all submissions and declare the winners, which will be shown at the BRS event as well as featured in the artbook. Detailed rules are here.
Finished up half of Angel Ring now and working through Mitsuru-ojousama’s route. She seems so much like Koisora‘s Shizuna.
