Koisora Voted Top Overall in 2010
Koisora topped the Getchu bishoujo game 2010 user rankings, having made the top 5 in almost every category! I’m one of those that voted for it, since it was quite a fun game. Rounding out the top 5 are Subahibi, Ikusa Megami Verita, Sinsemilla and Steins;Gate. Subahibi won the scenario category as expected, with Sinsemilla as runner-up. Eushully and Applique once again don’t disappoint in the system category, but I’m sure many enjoyed Akatoki!‘s system, which earned them 3rd place. The best OP was HGB‘s “Good-bye crisis”, which was also in my top 5 OPs.
But of course, what interested me the most are the chara rankings. Usually the characters I love don’t end up on top or even in the top 5 due to my unique interests. What? Hoshikaka‘s Madoka is first!? Well, I guess she’s probably the best heroine in the game, but my precious (fake) imouto Koharu is sooooo much better! She’s not in the top 12 being beaten by Suguri, but… wait!
They posted my comment! Long live imoutos!
New titles announced this week include:
Chuable Soft‘s Astraythem has been put on hold indefinitely due to a setting that is too similar to the recent tragedies. The story is based on a fictional city of Senseki (from Sendai and Ishinomaki) which was ravaged by a earthquake and tsunami that killed thousands. I think it’s a good idea to shelve the idea for now.
Hatsukoi Yohou. has been delayed to May 27th.
A plug-in pack is coming out for Custom Maid 3D on April 28th, including additional appearances and costumes.
WORKING!! had many people guessing when they began a countdown on the official site a week ago, culminating with an elaborate April Fool’s joke. But actually, there is a 2nd season! More Poplar and Yamada! Woohoo!
Iyashi-kei vocalist Kicco is releasing her first album “gateau au chocolat” on April 27th, covering many Lump of Sugar titles such as Tayutama, Itsusora and HGB. On April 28th, ALICESOFT will be releasing the Daiteikoku OST along with the B.G.M festival #0 Anniversary CD.
Next visual fanbook coming out from Enterbrain/TECH GIAN STYLE will be for Journey’s Nanairo Kouro.
GSC/Max Factory has a nendoroid (July, ￥3500) and figma (June, ￥3800) combo coming out for Black Rock Shooter‘s Strength. I personally don’t like it. They also have a 1/8 scale figure of Fractale‘s Nessa coming out which looks much better. Priced at ￥6800 and comes out in August. FREEing is making a nendoroid of Hyakka Ryouran‘s Juubei OP ver., which comes out in July at ￥3500. For those wanting a little more skin, check out CharaAni’s 1/8 scale sexy black and pure white figures of Ikkitousen‘s Ryomou (July, ￥6980 ea).
Mmm… delicious Yui dakimakura…
As a Galaxy Angel and DiGi Charat fan, I am sad to hear that Broccoli has withdrawn from the retail business and its stores will now be run by Animate starting June 1st. This is due to huge losses in recent years. I still have my points card from when I visited the GamerS main store in Akiba. Good memories.
Are you a pro incubator?
Hope you all enjoyed April Fool’s. Zen isn’t into BL… I think. You can also check out all the April Fool’s from various eroge companies and others after the jump. No webclaps this week.
Reading Nakaimo v3 and Happiness! v2. Rinka finally gets some chara background and Shougo’s ‘imouto’ tells him to stop looking for her over the school’s P.A. system. I think it’s actually Rinka posing as an ‘imouto’… not sure for what reason though. Oh, and Jun is still awesome.
