Where is the Asakura Imouto!?
The first few characters have been revealed on the D.C.III official site and there’s no Asakura imouto, Amakase robot or Shirakawa idol!? And where’s Suginami!? Joking aside (kinda), with an imouto-kei osananajimi and two kouhais, I’m satisfied enough. What’s interesting is that the main character’s last name is Yoshino.
New company EX-ONE has announced their first 3 title ‘extreme project’: Manatsu no Yoru no Yuki Monogatari (December 22nd), Futsuno Fantasy (Spring 2012) and Final Renai Game (Summer 2012). More Mikeou and Suzuka art? Yes, please! Nonsugar‘s debut title LEGEND SEVEN has been scheduled for November 25th. Looks like it’s right up Hemi’s alley.
Surprisingly Honoka topped the Nadeshiko Drip chara poll, while Miu dropped 3 places to 4th. Chiwa easily won the Pochi to Goshujinsama chara poll, with Shino placing 2nd. Arthur is at the top of the rankings in this latest Eiyuu Senki chara poll. It seems there’s still many more characters to be added though, so I’m sure there’ll be more chara polls in the near future. The chara poll for Motto Ane, Chanto Shiyou yo! After Story runs until August 8th.
The Rewrite OST will be out on the first day of Comiket 80. It consists of 63 songs over 3 CDs. The 2-disc Princess Frontier OST, “Polka”, comes out on September 22nd, featuring music from the PC and PSP games.
Haikuo Soft has both a vocal album of 2011 songs and a Sakura Sakura artbook coming out on August 26th. More info on their site.
The first volume of Axanael The Case-Book of ENA is on shelves. Both Sonicomi and Koi dewa Naku have visual fan books in the works.
Latest console ports include: Grisaia no Kajitsu (PSP), Kuon no Kizuna (PSP), Sangokuhime 3 (PSP, November 2nd) and Suzukaze no Melt (PS3). The next Umineko game for the PS3 will be out later this winter.
Kotobukiya’s 1/6 scale figure of Clannad‘s Tomoyo comes out this December for 8820 yen. Max Factory’s figma of Oreimo‘s Kuroneko kamineko ver. will be out in February 2012. Preorders start on August 10th via Dengeki-ya, priced at 3200 yen. This one actually looks quite good, although I’d prefer the Shironeko figure.
Help Miori make friends!
Finally got back into watching anime lately, with two series that Zen wouldn’t touch with a 10′ pole: RO-KYU-BU! and THE IDOLM@STER. I’m also reading the RO-KYU-BU! LN at the same time and while there are slight differences, I don’t think that the changes in the anime detracted too much. For example, Aoi’s cute and little boys shouldn’t be able to abduct a higher schooler.
