No Wincest in a Good End?
So Ayase and Manami visit the Kousaka household and find the front door unlocked. They enter the house and find Kyousuke and Kirino furthering their sibling love right at the entrance. Oh, wrong anime? Joking aside, I liked this ending, even if Kirino’s about-face was a bit sudden. This is indeed a good end for me since I’m mainly supporting them getting closer as siblings, not necessarily as lovers. Now what about the true end? Will it stay true to the LN?

Setsu topped the Hatsukoi Yohou. chara poll, while my fav Chiyoko finished second. Lasty (♀) took first place in the Maou o Seifuku Suru Tame no 666 no Houhou chara poll. You can download a commemorative wallpaper. A few days remain to vote in the Canvas4 chara poll. It runs until December 24th.
Doujin site Cherry Garden has opened. It’s a magazine promoting doujin bishoujo-ge and is represented by well-known circles like Stage Nana, Luna System and Sherbet Soft. There sure are a lot of Touhou doujin games out there, but Area Zero’s Touhou Sky Arena looks better than most. A demo of this 3d battle game will be available at C79.
Doujin circle Yakiniku Banzai has announced their next title: Recycle Princess. This SLG is about a princess who can be resurrected no matter how many times she dies. I like the cute chibi sprites.
The confirmation number for Kirino’s boarding pass sure looks like ‘ore no imouto ga’… From Toranoana’s weekly H-doujin rankings, it’s obvious that: 1) Oreimo is very popular; 2) Kirino and Kuroneko are supported equally; and, 3) Ayase doesn’t mind doing it with Kyousuke if Kirino’s also there.
Upcoming anime and LN Dragon Crisis! is getting a manga adaptation this January. Prism Magical is also getting a manga adaptation coming out December 25th. Visual fanbooks are coming out for Kisaragi GOLD★STAR and Zen’s favorite Kimi no Nagori wa Shizuka ni Yurete. For something a bit more visual, why not get the hadaka apron visual collection?
Samples for the VA Compilation CD Vol.2 “Panorama” are available on their site.
Two more PSP games announced: simulation RPG Queen’s Gate Spiral Chaos and love sim PhotoKano, similar to Love Plus. Then, there’s the latest Tales game for the PS3: Tales of Xillia. The trailer by ufotable looks nice ^o^
Figure convention Treasure Festa in Ariake 4 was held on December 12th. Check out the pics at Dengeki PlayStation Online: 1, 2, 3, 4. Any that catch your eye? I kinda like the Shinobu with donut one by T’s system.
Here’s the much anticipated Kuroneko nendoroid from GSC! It comes out in April at 3500 yen. While I look some of her facial expressions, I think I actually prefer Kirino over her (because of that face). GSC has a nendoroid of Haruhi‘s Kyon coming out the same month. They are also carrying Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru‘s Hotori figma by Max Factory (3000 yen) and FREEing’s 1/8 scale figure of Ookami-san‘s Ryouko (7800 yen). In addition, they just announced the next Touhou nendoroid: Yuyuko!
Special mini figures of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?‘s Haruna and Yuu will be included in the March issues of Dragon Magazine and Dragon Age, respectively.
Gift – 1/4 scale Tamaki swimsuit ver (ToHeart2, Apr 2011, ￥12,600)
Kotobukiya – 1/8 scale Makishima (Shining Hearts, May 2011, ￥7140)
Kotobukiya – 1/8 scale Marisa (Touhou, Apr 2011, ￥7140)
Kotobukiya – 1/8 scale Reimu (Touhou, May 2011, ￥7140)
Usually it doesn’t make too much sense to have multiples of one figure, but when you can have an army of Poplars…
Seiyuu appreciation community site Koebu’s 2010 rankings has Kamiya Hiroshi and Hirano Aya as the top male and female seiyuu.
Oh god, what are these cute little Milky Holmes box cars!? >_<
Kirino needs to kick the screen more in the Oreimo iPhone app.
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! Also, December 15th was Ebi’s bday! She looks so cute in the Noble Works seifuku!
Papa v5 focused on Hina and her loneliness. I just want to hug her so badly >w<b Hmm, they introduced a few new sidechars, but I feel like the girl Yuuta met towards the end might enter the picture soon… Now that Oreimo is over (until the true end), I need to find something else to watch. The winter season looks worse than usual.

I’ve recently purchased a dakimakura off of Japan Yahoo auctions, and I was wondering if you knew how to spot a real dakimakura from a fake one. Besides the price, is there a certain kind of thing I should look out for to tell the difference between a real dakimakura or a fake one? by Riyin
Hmm, it’s usually either the texture of the fabric or the quality of the print and if it bleeds or not. If anyone else can add their comment, please feel free to add!
