Do You Believe in Magic?

The winter 2011 anime chart by Scamp is now out! I’m not really looking forward to anything. Well, maybe Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Ja Nain Dakara ne!!. Phew, that’s a mouthful… I’ll just call it Oniizen.

New games announced this week are:

130cm – Nemureru Hana wa Haru o Matsu.
LeafWhite Album 2 ~closing chapter~ (YouTube)

Release dates have been announced for the following:

Yuurei to Koi Shitai! – December 24th
Smile Shooter – January 14th
Hatsukoi Time Capsule – February 25th
White – February 25th
Shikigami – March 25th
Trouble@Spiral! – March 25th

The following titles have been delayed:

Jangokuhime – January 28th
Vanitas no Hitsuji – January 28th
Sakura Sakura Festival! – February 25th

Mare finally won a Hoshimemo chara poll! Congrats! (死神は人気投票なんかで喜ばないわ) Asuho stayed at 3rd, while Chinami fell to 7th. Other chara poll winners are Shingen (Ouka Sengoku), Alice (Oretsure) and Ran (Let’s Kaitou!). The chara poll for ALcot’s next title Onigokko! has started up and will run until December 5th.

CIRCUS has started up a website for sister brand STELLA, led by director Kuri++ (Princess PartyRPG Gakuen). The focus is ‘moe, ero and comedy’. How is that any different from other brands?

07th Expansion’s merchandise at C79 will include the final Umineko title, Twilight of the golden witch, the magical fighting game Ougon Musoukyoku, as well as the side game Umineko no Naku Koro ni Tsubasa.

Steam has been offering some big deals for indie games lately. Recettear was packaged with 4 other games at only $5. The deal is over now, but it’s worth keeping an eye on future deals if you’re interested.

Some doujin titles that caught my eye lately are PuniSoft’s Meikko Shiyoujo, about the return of Tomoki’s loving sister Haruna with her niece Mio, Inubito’s Kuro to Shiro no Raisen Kaidan, and Eilis’ Tooi Tooi, Yakusoku, where Gen’s lover Kotone passes away and he is left with a letter asking him to go treasure hunting together. The official site has almost a Koichoco feel to it with the scrapbook layout.

The second Nanoha movie is scheduled for 2012, while screenshots from the upcoming Campanella OVA are up for your viewing. Needs more Agnes. The official site for upcoming winter anime Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Mr. Lovecraft has opened.

Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko’s R-15 and Dantalian no Shoka will both be adapted into anime. All 14 volumes of Akamatsu Ken’s popular love romance series Love Hina are available for download at J-comi! This service will be available for 1 month only. With over 1 million downloads over the first 3 days, it sure seems like it’s well received.

The covers for Oreimo manga v3 and the upcoming Dengeki G’s issue have been revealed. I’ll be getting the Thanatos Eros cosplay one… There’s no way my angel can be this dark!

Hoshikaka is getting a light novel adaptation on January 29th. I’m not having high hopes for it considering how bad the game was. However, Kotobukiya will be making a figure for Madoka (who is definitely the main heroine). Maybe it’s worth taking a look at it when a preview is available.

The drama CD for K-ON lookalike Kokoro Connect will be out on February 16th. When I’ve got some time, I’ll read the first volume to see how it is.

In an expected turn of events, Maeda Jun announced at a recent event that Angel Beats! will be getting a game. Hands up if you think that it’ll be done by key.

Black★Rock Shooter is also getting a PSP game in summer 2011. The limited version will come with a figma, artbook and soundtrack. There’ll also be a mini browser RPG next spring titled Puchitto★Rock Shooter. It’ll be available via the Niconico application.

The latest WAVE 1/10 scale swimsuit figure is Oreimo‘s Kirino! The smiling normal version comes out in May at ¥3990, while the Dengeki angry version will be out in June at ¥4200. I prefer the regular version much more.

Other figures announced this week are GSC’s Rin (Fate movie, May 2011, ¥8800), Volks’ 1/8 scale Manaka bishop ver. (Manaka de Ikuno!!) and A-LABEL’s 1/4 scale Revy cowgirl ver. (Black Lagoon, Apr 2011, ¥12,390). Rin looks very well done with the hair motion and pose.

Dakimakura for Aselia and Euphoria are available from XUSE’s site. Hemi, go!

2500 yen for a squid hat? (And that doesn’t include shipping…) I’m pretty sure you can make one yourself for cheaper.

JP Mabinogi is holding a campaign with Full Metal Alchemist until December 21st. Character cards for Edward Elric, Winry Rockbell, Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, Alphonse Elric and Izumi Curtis are available until December 7th. There’s also special items and titles. It makes perfect sense considering the existence of alchemists in the Mabinogi world.

Oreimo ep 8 was disappointing, but ep 9 totally made up for it! Kuroneko gained major points (and we saw her imouto too), while I totally understand Kirino’s actions while playing her new eroge. お兄ちゃん、大好き!

Speaking of eroge, Koichoco‘s done and it was ok, but the election and chocolate didn’t play much of a role except for in a few routes. Since November is a bit dull, I’m playing Mizuiro right now. Yuki is perfect, my sister. I can see why this is such a well-known imouto-ge. She stole the show even in the first part of Hiyori’s route.

On the LN front, after the boring Prave! v2, I blew through Bokutomo v4 and it was the best book in the series so far, especially with Maria’s visit to Kodaka’s house and Kobato getting jealous. Now switching over to Papa no Iu Koto v4 since I’m expecting v5 to arrive at my door tomorrow ^o^ Oh, and December post will probably be late a few days.

Webclap responses:
So what’s your take on November’s games so far?
Exams nearly over! I’m itching to get back into the eroge loop! by Wrathkal

I’m not planning on playing any November games. Instead I’m going through Mizuiro and other games from the backlog. Also, I plan to actually finish a review or two later this month. Just a little bit more! The eroge will be waiting for your return!

    Yes, Yuki is a great imouto, though I’ve said that one too many times.

    And uh Campanella characters in Happiness uniforms? What, where, and why? How, should I inquire, really.

    This probably came in just abit late for this week’s news but Oretsuba Anime has been decided :D.

    As for Mare’s victory in character poll, I have but a quote from 大河 sensei: “I-it’s not because I’m a lolicon, but that it just so happens that the god of the stars happened to be a loli :).

  • 3. Wrathkal  |  November 29, 2010 at 3:08 am

    Yeah, it’s possible to make your own squid hat for a lot cheaper. My friend did his already.

    Told Hemi about the dakis… hopefully can get the Euphoria one.

    Saw two different ero Kuroneko dakis, pretty good ones.

  • 4. Eab1990  |  November 29, 2010 at 6:13 am

    Mare won…? Hell ye–… Wait, Chinami fell to 7th?!! Augh, was my vote really for nothing? >_>

    I’m vaguely surprised Isuzu jumped back from 7th to 4th, but even more surprised that Kosame beat Chinami. Suzuha did even worse… ;_;

    If it’s any consolation to myself, Mare’s tsundere reaction to finally coming out on top is HNNNNNNNNNNNNG.

    Winter has a few good anime coming out (Madoka and Nyaru-Ani are what I’m looking out for), but most of the ones looking forward to are either in the OVA department (T.P. Sakura and Kaitou Tenshi 2) or their premise has potential to be good.

    And there’s never enough Agnes in Campanella’s stuff. Tortilla twins too. Too much Chelsea for my tastes though.

  • 6. m3rryweather  |  November 30, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    Mare at the top of the polls?! YYYEEEEESSSSSHHHHH!!!

    “Also, I plan to actually finish a review or two later this month.”

    *Skeptically looks at the calendar date with a raised brow.*

    @Amoirsp: She is a great imouto indeed. Now mine.

    @warum: That’s one series I’m looking forward to next spring. The artwork looks very similar to the original… Naru is so cute >w<

    @Wrathkal: I can… fold a paper hat and put it on my head? :D

    @Eab1990: Winter season seems boring to me… Maybe everything just pales in comparison to this fall. Or maybe because it's winter.

    @nagiamatsu: Welcome back! Yup, I'm more interested in Ougon Musoukyoku. The Siestas are miiiiiiiiiine XD

    @m3rryweather: Why are you doubting m- Oh, I meant -NEXT- month!

    • 8. Wrathkal  |  December 2, 2010 at 1:45 am

      Yep, you can. I saw some people wearing one during Anime Festival Asia. Plus some of the doujin art booth had a mini-hat on them with a pic of Ika and the text ‘this booth has been invaded!’

    “All 14 volumes of Akamatsu Ken’s popular love romance series Love Hina are available for download at J-comi!”

    I think there was a tweet by Akamatsu himself asking his fans and the people who downloaded from there to buy the volumes from Well, from the sheer number of purveyors…. ^^;
