The following titles have been delayed:
Part of the preorder campaign for softhouse-seal’s March release Zettai Zecchou Seiki no Daihatsumei!! is a bodypaint patch. That’s a step up from the last game where they just took the skirt off.
The Hello, good-bye chara poll has started up and runs until February 28th. The winner will get a wallpaper made for them. Of course, Koharu is the best!! Also running until the same day is the Canvas4 chara poll, led by Satsuki.
Who won the Oreimo chara poll? Will it be Kuroneko, Kirino… or maybe Ayase!?
Pachinko game Sengoku Otome is getting an anime adaptation. It can’t be worse than Rio Rainbow Gate… right? Actually, most likely not.
A-1 Pictures’ original anime Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (debuting this April) is getting a novel adaptation. You can read a sample of the first chapter here.
In the light novel spotlight this week is KyoAni Award winner Chuunibyou de mo Koi ga Shitai!, by Toratora and illustrated by Aisaka Nozomi. Yuuta used to suffer from chuunibyou (8th grade sickness), but that is a thing of the past after he graduated from middle school. But then a strange girl named Rikka who was inflicted with chuunibyou came to him and made him contracted to her! Rikka is really cute and it should be a pretty funny series. No release date for the first volume has been announced yet. I plan to pick it up when it’s out.
GSC is making nendoroids of Valkyria 3‘s Riela and Imca (June and July respectively). Kotobukiya continues the Manaiku 1/8 scale figures with Ilfa kunoichi ver, coming out this summer. Other figures announced this week include:
4-Leaves – 1/6 scale Nymph (SoraOto, spring 2011)
Alpha x Omega – 1/8 scale Rina (HEROMAN, June, ￥7140)

Kaitendoh – 1/4 scale Kanu venus ver (Ikkitousen XX, May, ￥26,250)
WAVE – 1/10 scale Kiriha swimsuit ver (Fortune Arterial, August, ￥3990)
Have both Kuroneko and Shironeko at the same time with the latest Oreimo dakimakura by ChuN.
Everything’s better with nekomimi.
A couple months ago I picked up Gekkou since the synopsis sounded interesting and didn’t get around to reading it until now. The air of mystery surrounding seemingly perfect girl Youko and her ‘murder recipe’ pushes the plot along, as I’m trying to deduce if she is indeed the culprit behind the ‘accidents’. Nonomiya is different from other male protagonists in the sense that he’s cynical and in it due to his curiosity. I wonder if the first volume will resolve some issues or will I have to wait till v2…
I can’t get enough of Imopara…
I still vote Zen reviews Ama Ane.
On a more serious note, with the game binge Zen’s been having, has there been any feasible reviewable candidates?
Likewise, a Mizuiro review will be like, oh so prototype (old). by Amoirsp
I’ll consider reviewing after some posts that I have in mind that I need to get done in the coming weeks.
Yes, I am just delaying thanks to my promise to do FA next… I really should finish that I suppose….
