FAVORITE is releasing Hoshizora no Memoria Complete on November 26th combining the original game and the fandisk. It’ll come with a drama CD “Hikari no Relay”. The offical page opens on September 24th.
The Lovekami general election lasts until October 1st. Iwana has jumped out to an early lead. Sakuya easily won the Tasogare no Sinsemilla post-release chara poll. Suzune topped the 2nd Motto Nee, Chanto Shiyou yo! chara poll, just like last time. Enor beat out all the girls to place first in the Nanapri chara poll.
Doujin circle SherbetSoft‘s next title is Seifuku Tenshi. Their last title was Resign. I’m really interested in Fuguriya‘s next all-ages yuri title Hanahira!. Art looks really cute and story seems sugar-laden. Download version comes out on September 24th, with the package version out on October 8th.
Since nemuiwanko’s back, he’ll be bringing back the anime season preview with Zen. I’ll also chime in on series that are relevant to my interests, like Oreimo. The Oreimo CM (15s + 30s) came out and two weeks never seemed so long!
Sae‘s route ended on Amagami SS this week, but the big news is that Miya is getting her own route too! I don’t think it’ll go beyond family relationship, but if you want actual sibling love, just wait for Yosuga no Sora this fall.
Index 2, Oreimo, Hakuoki 2, SoraOto forte, Milky Holmes, Otome Youkai Zakuro, Togainu no Chi and Star Driver will be available for free on Niconico for a week after each broadcast.
In addition to Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! v4 coming out on September 25th, there’s a few other new light novels coming out this month:
In Re: Ore no Keitai Nante Kawaikunai! (Kamio Jouji, illust. by 2-G), Kurou decides to get a new cell phone and is recommended a new special deluxe version. He is told to head to a chapel to get his new cell phone, and once there, a wedding march plays and a girl in a wedding dress is waiting for him. This love comedy is very similar to HOOKSOFT’s LikeLife and even features cameos from some of the game heroines.
Hyakuoku no Majo Katari (Takeoka Hazuki, illust. by Nakayama Miyuki) is about a hero Alto Gustav whose last goal is to graduate from the Kaizel magic academy. Since attending the top magic classes would probably get himself killed, he decides to enlist in the witchcraft classes instead. Awaiting him there are three pretty girls who question his reasons for being there in this witch fantasy love comedy.
Harem wa Iya! (Mikagami Marehito, illust. by Piromizu) features new student Satoshi who becomes good friends with classmate Shiori. One day, his senpai Ayano fixes up his uniform and his cute childhood friend Miyu chats happily with him, causing others to call him the ‘harem king’ out of jealousy. But Satoshi has a secret he doesn’t want others to find out about…
Paradigm novels will be adapting Sugar+Spice2 to paperback on October 30th.
Light novel Re: Baka wa Sekai o Sukueru ka? will be getting a drama CD. There’s also two new PVs on the official site.
The drama CD for Mashifoni‘s Ange comes out on September 22nd. I really hope that they sell well, so that there’s a chance of an anime adaptation.
Nippon Ichi’s SRPG Makai Senki Disgaea4 for the PS3 will feature use of Takehito Harada’s illustrations instead of sprites (although you can sprites if you wish), battles with other players, transformations, and others. Whereas Disgaea3 was school-based, this will be politics-based with a general election. The main characters are vampire Valvatoze, werewolf Fenrir and Prinny girl Fuuka. You can check out the PV here. The limited version comes with a Fuuka nendoroid from GSC. ♥Fuuka♥
Alchemist has finally revealed their new project… It’s actually two new games: Umineko for PS3 (December 16th) and Galgun for the Xbox360. The PS3 port features much better graphics in full HD and covers the first 4 games. Goat-kun is now on steroids! Galgun allows you to shoot pheromones at 60 girls while they make ero noises. Ya, that’s pretty much it. Oh, and tentacles.
The PS2 version of ocelot’s Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica After School will be out on November 11th.
A really cute original doll from azone: Sahra. Looks so innocent.
Kotobukiya has unveiled the anticipated Nanoha casual wear ver. 1/8 scale figure which comes out in January. They also made a ballerina version of Evangelion‘s Rei (7140 yen, January). It’s a cute figure and all, but I don’t really think it fits her character.
Two new figmas from Max Factory: se.Kirara‘s Mana (3000 yen, December) and Touhou‘s Aya (2800 yen, January). I love Aya’s troubled face.
Embrace Japan has made a 1/8 scale figure of Isshoni Sleeping‘s Hinako (December). Not really worth 8190 yen.
ALcot has made a delicious dakimakura cover for Riaimo‘s Shiori. The safe version is sooooooooooooo cute! >w<
CIRCUS has started up a Twitter account for uni.
NekoNekoSoft’s 4koma: Beware of imoutos.
Do you love Seitokai no Ichizon‘s Mafuyu? Now you can be married to her (approved by Kurimu) and enjoy extra large sheets of her in hadaka apron form for only 7875 yen. It even includes a personalized card proclaiming that Mafuyu is your wife. There’s also the same package for BakaTest‘s Hideyoshi, but it’s sold out…
I’d try out a ramen burger.
No webclaps this week. Loved Mai’s route in Yoake. It’s been a while I played a well thought out story. Going through Natsuki’s route now while also reading Galge no Sekai v2. I’m glad that the light novel reviews are getting a good reception.
