Enjoy the Festive Season
feng’s Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi may have been delayed for almost a year, but they sure didn’t waste any time adapting it into an anime. Produced by Douga Koubou, it begins airing this April. Do we think that Hoshikaka deserves an anime? Hell no. I really hope they go for Madoka’s route since that’s the only one that doesn’t suck. At first glance, it seems like they’ll be going with Ui though.
5pb.’s latest ‘science ADV’ title is called Robotics;Notes. Whether this comes out first on the PC or Xbox360 remains to be seen. I’m quite excited about propeller‘s next title, Sukima Sakura to Uso no Tokai. It takes place in the city of Sakurano which only liars can enter. The art by refeia is really pretty and I have a good feeling for the characters too, especially Sakura and Chiyoko.
Other new titles announced this week are:
Release dates have been set for the following titles:
Anisetta’s 12+ has been delayed once again, this time to February 25th.
Gumi-chan and Akira are both getting stories in Flyable Candy Heart! How will Shou be able to defeat the last boss, Gumi-chan, and win her heart!? The character seiyuus have also been revealed. It’s pretty much the same as the originals. Agumi Oto is voicing four cameo chars!
As shown from the Knight Carnival! chara poll results, Arthur is popular no matter what gender he/she is. She gets a commemorative wallpaper. Tomo-chan aside (1st is certain), Maya takes the Ruitomo FD chara poll. Lunar topped the Bloody Rondo chara poll. The chara poll for Mecha-con! has started and will run until January 30th.
In the mood for some shota? Doujin circle Nanika Modoki just released their latest title Tsuimiko ~Tsuiteru Miko-san wa Otoko no Ko!?~. It’s a heartful love comedy ADV where the miko Hinata (♂) allows spirits to possess him so that they can enact their wish and finally leave this world.
TYPE-MOON seems to be turning into an anime studio with Fate/stay night spinoff Fate/Zero (ufotable) coming out soon, as well as Girls’ Work being turned into an anime instead of a game as originally planned.
Dengeki G’s magazine interactive short novel Baby Princess will be getting a 3D anime adaptation. It’s similar to Sister Princess, except there’s now 19 girls from 0 to 18 years old! I don’t really see the point of the 3D though.
The character song album for Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆, “Hidamaring songs”, came out on December 22nd. It features a song for each member of the cast.
SEGA has planned Hatsune Miku -Project Diva- Dreamy Theater 2nd for the PS3 this summer. It’ll basically be a port so you can play the PSP game on the PS3 with better graphics.
The story for the Oreimo PSP game will start from the end of anime ep12 (Good End), or the equivalent being the beginning of the LN v6. That makes me wonder what they’re going to do for the anime true end then…
The new character for the console port of Ouka Sengoku will be Sanada Yukimura-chan, as voted by the fans. Amatsu Misora ni! and Otoboku 2 are both getting PSP adaptations next year. For Amamiso, Kaho will be upgraded to heroine status and a new heroine will also be added, named Inugami Honori.
Get in the festive mood with Orchid Seed’s 1/7 scale Jumoji Tamaki. This is based off an illustration by Kuuchuu Yousai (Djibril) in the December 2008 issue of H magazine Comic XO. She stands about 14 cm tall and comes out in July at 8700 yen. Naturally, the figure is castoff-able and you can take off the bandage sticker. I really love the look and design; she’s just so adorable… and at the same time, ecchi and tempting! This must be what they call ero-kawaii!
Max Factory has a figma of Oreimo‘s Kirino in the works! Seems like she can pose with crossed arms or pointing finger.
Latest GSC figures are Angel Beats!‘s Tenshi (1/8 scale, May, 5800 yen) and Amagami‘s Haruka swimsuit ver (1/7 scale, April, 6800 yen). Tenshi looks quite good and matches well with Yuri. They are also carrying Phat’s nendoroids for Moritaka and Akito from Bakuman. They both come out in April.
AmiAmi’s figure of Sora no Otoshimono forte‘s Astraea comes out in April, priced at 2980 yen. She’s pretty cute and would fit in well with the other angeloids.
The latest Manaka de Ikuno!! (FDC) figure coming out from Volks is 1/8 scale Manaka bishop ver. It’s priced at 7875 yen and comes out sometime next year. Iincho and Tama-nee are fine and all, but what about some love for Konomi, Nanako and Silfa?
The Hidamari Sketch × ☆☆☆ niitengo box from Toys Works which comes out in April will be available for preorder at Chara Ani until January 11th at 8160 yen each. Each box contains 12 niitengo. There are 14 versions in total. They’re all so cute! I think I’m starting to fall for these…
Finally got around to finishing off Shina Dark. It started off with great promise, but then degraded into standard fantasy fare with fanservice. I love Christina though! The system in Hello, good-bye is one of the best to date, but it falls short on individual routes. However, all the deredere girls are simply irresistable! Now I just need to finish Natsume’s route so I can be with Koharu~ Also, happy birthday Koharu-chan!
Happy Birthday! Well, sort of. I was reading your blog when I found out it was earlier. Happy Late Birthday then! ^^; by Riyin
