New Titles from Aquaplus
Release dates have been set for the following:
The following titles have been delayed:
In celebration of Oretsuba‘s anime adaptation this spring, Navel is re-releasing the game on February 25th as an Anniversary Edition, as well as Prelude & AfterStory version for those that only played the main game.
It seems that the imoutos in Imouto Paradise! are not blood-related. But that’s nothing that a patch can’t fix! MOONSTONE’s ver1.01 patch makes them true blood-related imoutos. Of course I applied it ^^ (Koharu is my reward after I finish this post)
Lump of Sugar has released the activation code for HGB for those who need it.
Characolle! has an audio player app out for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, featuring a dancing loli.
The second chara poll for Yuyukana runs until March 10th. They’re all adorable, but I’ll be supporting Risa.
Gainax and Subaru collaboration original net animation Houkago no Pleiades is now available from the official Youtube page. So cute!! Is there more to come??
It seems Bakemonogatari sequel Kizumonogatari will be made into a movie instead of a anime series.
Steins;Gate has been confirmed as more than 1 cour. There needs to be more series that are more than 12 eps. When did it become the standard?
The manga adaptation Idolm@ster 2 The world is all one!! has started up, with Haruka, Hibiki and Yukiho as the main heroines. Other manga adaptations include Madoka Magica, spinoff Madoka Magica ~The innocent malice~, Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai and Kohitsuji wa Mayowanai. The Madoka spinoff doesn’t seem to have much in common, other than the ‘mahou shoujo’ theme.
The special version of the sixth volume of light novel Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (May 25th) will include a drama CD. The cast will be revealed in the February 26th issue of Comic Alive. I hope that this is a sign that it’ll be turned into an anime series. An-chaaaaaan~!!
Official visual books are coming out for Hyakka Ryouran (February 10th), Working!! (March 8th), Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi (March 30th), Imouto Paradise (April) and Ouka Sengoku. There’s also an artbook coming out featuring Hinamatsuri Momoko’s works (illustrator for Citron Soft and Pumpkin Soft) out on March 31st.
Accompanying the second issue of trap magazine Oto☆Nyan are striped knee-high socks. Maybe you’ll be lucky and get the pink striped ones ;)
Aquaplus took a page out of CIRCUS’ book and announced 6 new games: Utawarerumono 2 (PS3), Tears to Tiara 2 (PS3), ToHeart2 Dungeon Travelers (PSP), ToHeart2 DX Plus (PS3), Jasmine and Aqua Pazza (arcade). TH2DT is based off Manaka de Ikuno!!‘s dungeon crawler Final Dragon Chronicle which devoured two whole weeks of my life. I think it was quite fun and recommend it to everyone! Sequels and spinoffs aside, I’m curious what the plot for Jasmine will be.
The next set of niitengos from Toy’sworks are for Shukufuku no Campanella! They’re out in August at 780 yen each (random) and are 65mm tall. I want Agnes and the Tortilla sisters!
Hobby Japan has a nice figure of Touhou‘s Reimu coming out. It’s out in July/August priced at 6800 yen. Reservations will be taken until March 22nd via the March and April issues of the Hobby Japan magazine.
Other newly announced figures include the following:
FREEing – nendoroid Aldora (Queen’s Blade, May, ￥3500)
Griffon – 1/7 scale Elis (Asobi ni Iku yo!, May, ￥7600)
Griffon – figutto Light (Death Note, May, ￥4380)

ai sp@ce is holding an Ayu campaign until February 8th where you can earrings, as well increased stats. Uguu~
Need a new glasses cleaning cloth?
Since this week’s news will be in a few days, I’ll answer webclaps then. It should be a short one. February post will be late since I haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. Running the gamut of imouto nukige this week with Imopara and Zetsuimo. I can’t resist Koharu’s temptations >_<
Famima! has certain picked up after a dubious first volume. With the introduction of innocent loli Clarice, the fanservice, comedy and imouto jealousy have been kicked up a couple notches. Not to mention that half the volume is related to the underwear competition. Gonna finish this volume just as vol3 arrives at my door tomorrow.
Also, don’t trust Kyubey.
