The Wait is Over!!

October 3, 2010 at 1:32 am 17 comments

It’s been a long wait, but Oreimo anime is coming out tomorrow!!! The second PV came out last week, featuring clips from the first episode. I am sooooooo hyped up!!! I can identify so many games in Kirino’s stash and played a few too (Sugar+Spice2).

Meanwhile, the Oreimo Portable PSP ADV game has been scheduled for January 27th! If you order the limited edition, it comes with Ore no Imouto Maker EX, based on the Imouto to Koi Shiyo! game that kickstarts Kirino and Kyousuke’s secret relationship! Check out the PV here!

There’s also a new 1/8 scale Kirino figure from Kotobukiya. It’s priced at 6090 yen and comes out in February. This one’s not tsun like the other one, but I like both just as much! ^o^

New titles announced this week include:

ALMAKimi to Boku to Eden no Ringo
Candy SoftMotto Nee, Chanto Shiyou yo FD
Ex-iTSorairo Memoir
onomatope* – Mecha-kon
TEATIMELove Death 555! (November 26th)

ALMA, Ex-iT and onomatope* are all new companies. It seems like TEATIME decided to skip 5 to 554 and went straight to 555 (Go Go Go!). This latest installment of the Love Death series includes an online function. Orgy?

FOUNTAINHEAD has closed down. Their sole game was Chaste Chase back in 2008.

The following titles have been delayed:

Sacred Vampire – October 29th
12+ – November 26th
Akatoki! – December 23rd

In a complete reversal, minori has now welcomed the foreign market by partnering with No Name Losers and MangaGamer to localize their games beginning with ef. It would be great if some other companies will relax their foreign IP restrictions. I’m looking at you, YuzuSoft.

It seems like Danny Choo’s mascot Suenaga Mirai will be a subchara in Nitro+’s Sonicomi.

FAVORITE has started up the third chara poll for Hoshimemo. It runs until October 31st. Let’s see if Yume will win again.

Tomo ran away with the Ruitomo FD chara poll with almost 3 times the number of votes of second-place finisher Akaneko. There’s a commemorative wallpaper for her his victory. Iwana topped the Lovekami chara poll, followed by heroines Tsukuyomi and Inari. Sena placed first in the Noble Works chara poll. My fav chara Hinata was a close second. Sena gets a commemorative wallpaper. In a close battle, Aya was the winning imouto in the Zettai Imouto Genri Shugi chara poll.

A collaboration anime between Subaru and Gainax? Wait… Subaru?

Their TV series may have ended, but K-ON! and Sengoku Basara are both getting movies, Railgun has an OVA out this month and another epilogue for Angel Beats! will be included in the 7th DVD on December 22nd (more news to follow on official website in late October).

Leaf’s Tears to Tiara will be ported to the PSP on November 25th. In addition to the standard difficulty levels, they’ve also added a ‘Devil’ mode. This will be followed by the spinoff Tears to Tiara Gaiden: Avalon no Nazo on December 16th. Dream Club Zero will come out on the Xbox360 on December 30th.

Following the Rei ballerina, now you can couple her with an Asuka ballerina (1/7 scale, 7140 yen). It’ll be available in February.

Silverlight’s going to be more popular in Taiwan, with the introduction of mascot Hikaru.

Dream Party Tokyo will be running this Sunday at Tokyo Big Sight.

Should you be in Akihabara this month, there’s tours available in English and Chinese from the Akihabara Tourism Promotion Association. If you know a bit of Japanese though, I’d recommend just spending a day to explore it yourself.

I’ve been busy writing posts this week, so haven’t made much progress in Yoake. Mia’s route was so-so, hopefully Sayaka’s will be better. After that, it’s the home stretch for the true end.

Webclap responses:
I love your Real Imouto banner! by Chrouya
Thanks! I haven’t gotten around to making a new one since I’m too lazy to reinstall Photoshop after my HD died.

Hey Micchi, since when did you start loving imoutos? ^^
& why does Zen hate them? by Nemuru

I’ve always loved them!
Joking aside (?), that’s a good question and one that I’ve pondered many times myself. I distinctly recall watching Sister Princess way back in 2003 and finding Kaho-chan pretty cute, but that’s about it. I did like kouhai chars a lot though and still do. Sana (Tenshin Ranman, 2009) was probably one of the first imouto that I really loved and she also opened my eyes to imouto seiyuu specialist Agumi Oto. Around that time, I also read more imouto-focused Japanese blogs and thought that it would be great to write more about them here. But I think that I’ve always liked those types of chars because of endearment and that feeling that it’s your responsibility to protect them.
As for Zen, I don’t think he hates them. He just likes to tease me. And it would be scary if he were to love one.
As I have said before, I don’t exactly hate them, I simply do not like the traits they typically embody as a romantic option in eroge.

    Mmm yes you certainly look hyped for oreimo. Makes me want to watch it as soon as possible.

    On the other hand, love the Wakutsu Tomo wallpaper. His style seems to contain dresses like that often, instead of other types of attire. Mmm yes. Want more indeed.

  • 2. SnooSnoo  |  October 3, 2010 at 8:17 am

    >> What do you do if you find your little sister sleeping in your bed?
    I kick her off like Kyousuke wwww

    • 3. Micchi  |  October 3, 2010 at 12:51 pm

      *kicks SnooSnoo*

  • 5. hugh  |  October 3, 2010 at 10:43 am

    I am writing this comment as Oreimo is airing. Can’t wait for the hype to settle down and actually see what the show is really like.

  • 6. Wrathkal  |  October 3, 2010 at 10:50 am NSFW daki of Kirino

    Enjoy, Micchi

  • 7. aaerul  |  October 3, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    All those extras that come with the game. Man, they’re really giving this franchise a big push. I myself could not be happier.

    27th January almost seems… too far

  • 8. KarenMizuno  |  October 3, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Right now I’m watching it. I wish I could know all the games Kirino has like you Micchi, but I’m almost new to this. Viva Imoutos!!
    And TsunZen-kun in reality loves imoutos, maybe more than you^^ (a joke)

  • 9. Diclonius  |  October 3, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    Just watched the “Oreimo” anime and I haven’t laughed this much for a long time so it was a good thing I went to watch this without knowing anything about the novel in the first place and it was a real suprise! (in a really good way)

    And is it bad that I played most of those eroges that Kirino showed…. and lol that he chose to “kick out the sister from the bed without warning” from the eroge he was forced to play late at night.

    Good thing I don’t have a little sister bitch slapping me just to wake me up >_<

    >>I simply do not like the traits they typically embody as a romantic option in eroge

    I know, if only there were imoutos with black hair and twin tails.

    On the note of identifying Kirino’s stash, I didn’t know Tengen Toppa counted as imouto related anime/eroge goods…

    • 11. Amoirsp  |  October 4, 2010 at 7:17 pm

      I can’t think of an imouto that has black hair and twin tails.

      My head hurts from trying to look at the stash too extensively. Perhaps that was there on an anime standpoint.

  • 12. Eab1990  |  October 5, 2010 at 2:25 am

    Haven’t watched the OreImouto animu yet, I’m too busy being mindblown by the lines they crossed in the Yosuga no Sora animu. Needs to be seen to believed.

    A third chara poll for Hoshimemo, huh? Last time I voted Mare… I really, really want to vote Chinami, but I’m still mad about the seiyuu change (YES I PREFER HER ORIGINAL SEIYUU). Argh… Guess I’ll sleep on my decision for now.

    • 13. Amoirsp  |  October 5, 2010 at 2:57 am

      My mind was blown.

  • 14. Eab1990  |  October 5, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    “I distinctly recall watching Sister Princess way back in 2003 and finding Kaho-chan pretty cute, but that’s about it.”

    Kaho is the best SisPri. If only because of my personal bias for her seiyuu Hisayo Mochizuki, who also voiced my waifu Coco Yagami.

    Though I think Da Capo’s Nemu was the one who first got me into imoutos. Back when Shuffle and Da Capo were my gateway to VN-based anime.

  • 15. Micchi  |  October 5, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    @Amoirsp: For the record, I watched it 6 times the day it came out.

    @m3rryweather: Why didn’t I think of that!?

    @hugh: Don’t buy into the incest hype. Watch it as a good sibling comedy.

    @Wrathkal: Nomnomnom.

    @aaerul: Ya, they sure packed a lot of extras. I had hoped that they would make a demo version of the actual game Kirino plays though…

    @KarenMizuno: I’ve played quite a few of them too!

    @Diclonius: She can come slap me anytime if I get to go to her… Wait, who are you? Where are you taking m-

    @warum: Closest I can think of is Clear‘s Natsuki. Well, it’s like a combination of Sister Princess and Tengen Toppa

    @Eab1990: Sora wants you to know that Haru is hers. No one can beat Yume. I wasn’t as interested in Nemu back then as Miharu. She got me into kouhai chars. Kanon and Kiminozo were my first VN-based anime, but DC was the one that really dragged me in by the pa.. throat.

    • 16. Amoirsp  |  October 6, 2010 at 1:41 am

      Micchi, produce a mock imouto list sometime.

      Sometimes the earlier imoutos will have much higher precedence because of what it lead to.

    • 17. Eab1990  |  October 6, 2010 at 7:20 am

      Ya, Sora/Haru do belong together, but I still like Akira too.

      Yume will probably win again, hence I voted for Chinami. :3
