The Future of Magic Girls

January 9, 2011 at 7:51 pm 4 comments

The top 5 titles for the Getchu 2010 sales rankings are Shin Koihime Musou Moeshouden, Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~, Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi, Koiiro Sora Moyou and Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate. Many of them benefitted from artwork or extensive delays. I’ve played 5 out of the top 6 (Hello, good-bye is at #6). Hoshikaka so doesn’t deserve to be up there.

Duelist Engage has been set for March 25th, while Grisaia no Kajitsu has been delayed to February 25th.

Kotoha topped the Kamikaze Explorer! chara poll, while high-tension imouto Manami placed last :(

Clochette has also started up a Twitter account.

Original mahou shoujo anime Dog Days will be broadcasted this April. It’s headed by Nanoha creator Tsuzuki Masaki. The PV for Hoshikaka hints at an Ayumu end (just kidding… maybe).

Coming out January 18th from Gagaga Bunko is Uchi no Majo Shirimasen ka? (Yamakawa Susumu, illust by. CUTEG). Witches have become an endangered species and one of the remaining witches, Mira, secretly lives at Fumiya’s house. She’s pretty useless and he knows that one day she will have to return to the ‘witches’ paradise’. Hey, didn’t Zen wish for the eradication of magic girls?

The Marriage Royale illustration collection comes out on January 27th at 2730 yen, while the Fate/Extra visual fan book will be out on February 25th at 2100 yen.

Ayase will finally meet Kuroneko in the Oreimo PSP game. And… what are you doing under the bed?

The drama CD for Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? comes out on February 9th. It includes a Q&A corner. The OP and ED singles also go on sale on the same day.

Kotobukiya finally has a new 1/8 scale Manaiku figure coming out that isn’t Tama-nee or Iincho! Silfa bard ver. is coming out later this year. I think this looks quite good. We all know that you need a bard in your group ^o^

Other new figures coming out this year:

Gift – 1/8 scale Saber Lily (Fate, June, ¥9800)
GSC – 1/8 scale Black Gold Saw animation ver. (BRS, June, ¥9800)
Max Factory – 1/7 scale Tsumugi waitress ver. (K-ON!!, May, ¥8800)

The RO2 card system will feature 3 different sets of cards: gold, silver and bronze. Rarity will correspond to the bonuses from cards. Slots will be character-based instead of item-based, which will save people from having to collect excessive amounts of the same card. Lower rank cards can be combined to form a higher rank card. I think it helps players gradually get better instead of relying on sheer luck, but in the end, the best cards are what everyone wants.

It’s pretty amazing to see so many Oreimo H-doujins in one place.

Check out the collection of ita-ema from New Year’s at Kanda Myoujin. I like the Tewi and Ika Musume ones.

I’m surprised this wasn’t made earlier.

Care to try some pancake-flavored milkshake?

Maybe some more thought should be put into naming things. Would you want your kid going to this kindergarten?

Since Oreimo ended, I’m watching Hidamadoka Sketch Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica since it’s more in line with my tastes than Zen’s. I thought it was a pretty good first episode and I love the futuristic setting. The opening and ending scenes were a little weird and felt like it was made overly absurd. Nevertheless, I’ll be watching a few more eps to see how it turns out.

DCDX was a DC fan’s dream with crossovers and cameos galore. Yume and Otome meeting Nemu-obaachan, Nanaka greeting her dai-senpai Kotori, Miharu and Minatsu in a banana eating contest. They even snuck in a T.P. Sakura scene! My theory that Suginami is a time-traveller was destroyed though…

I also finished Nano’s route in Yukiuta and am working through Sora in Yosuga now. She’s so cute when she’s jealous!

And some links for C79…

Gadget Tsuushin – 1 2
Hobby Channel – 1 2 3 4 5

C79 figures:

Akiba Blog – bags

Webclap responses:

Happy New Years! いい年になるように

With that aside: Euphoria and Saisyun’s Einhart Stratos. Actually, where is Saisyun’s stuff on your chart? I dropped by their table but since they had already sold out on Einhart, I was spared having to think about how much I wouldn’t want to spend on a pillowcase.

Have you ever been to Japan? Akiba is tiring. Even more mentally tiring than Comiket day 1 with a laptop + accessories in your backpack plus 3 good sized bags of doujinshi. #1 skill to acquire before I return to Japan again: alphabetical kana searching.

For some reason imouto characters don’t seem mainstream in advertising, even for anime and VNs. And I have seen a lot of advertisements in these past few days. I don’t think Tora no Ana had anything in that genre section either (they don’t like genre sections to start though).

Can you (or Zen) recommend me a route order for Flyable Hearts? I might have tripped too many Sakurako flags to avoid her route the first time though. by SlashZero
良い年を! I guess it’s missing some dakis… there’s so many! I wonder how many actually are sold at C79. Yes, I’ve been to Japan twice, including Akiba. It’s tiring, but oh so satisfying XD It’s tough trying not to buy everything! I hope you had a blast in Japan ^_^ I don’t think they have an imouto genre. Although Toranoana is full of Oreimo lately…
From the FH review:
Micchi: Mayuri, Amane, Sakurako, Kururi, Yui, Suzuno

Zen: Mayuri, Amane, Kururi, Yui, Sakurako, Suzuno

    While all attention continues to focus on Ayumu’s venture in Hoshikaka anime, Yuri the half Russian trap from HoshiOuji flies under the radar undetected!

    Been rather interested in Fate/Extra recently and a visual fan book sounds nice to satisfy the need. キャス狐!!

    Hmm pancake flavoured milkshake… well you use milk to make pancakes so surprisingly it is a normal flavour?! -Coming from someone who had peanut butter on his hamburger not long ago. xD

    The Silfa bard version figurine looks cool.

    How do you know that Suginami didn’t disguise himself to throw people like you off his trail!? For all you know, those two are actually the same ‘time traveler’!

    I’m getting sick of Classy Cranberry’s… managed to sit through the harem and Tsubasa’s route, but my nukige urges are pretty much filled. Gonna get some games from my friend soon~

    So I was just browsing through that Getchu list of top games. Classy Cranberries was 18? Seriously? Is it snowing in hell?
