Remember to Stay Warm During the Winter
propeller‘s next title will be the all-ages TOKYO BABEL. Sawashiro Miyuki, Hanazawa Kana and Itou Kanae will be voicing the main heroines. Vanadis continues their monster girl series with St. Monmosu Gakuen. It’s scheduled for April 27th. Lass has revealed their 5th product: Shoujo Shiniki∽Shoujo Tengoku -The Garden of Fifth Zoa-. Not all stories have happy endings.
Purple Software’s Shiawase Kazoku-bu has been scheduled for March 23rd, while the following titles have been delayed:
RococoWorks is the latest company to call it quits. It’s a shame since their artwork and stories are a bit more distinctive, although I’m sure we’ll see lead illustrator Fue pop up somewhere else soon.
As expected, imouto Hina easily topped the Hiyoko Strike! chara poll with nearly half the total votes. She gets a dakimakura. In the all-out Imosen election, Yotsuha comes out on top and gets to treat her oniichan (me) with a Santa outfit wallpaper. Two chara polls have started up for Appare! Tenka Gomen, one for the favourite main chara and one for the favourite faceless mob chara. Each winner will get a wallpaper as reward. Faceless people creep me out. Also running is the Sakura No Reply chara poll, until January 15th.
Not only is Koichoco getting an anime, but now it’ll be ported over to the PSP in 2012. I wonder if Saru #1/#2 and Non-chan-senpai will get routes…?
Various soundtracks that were first released at C81 will be available soon in stores, including the 2-CD 64-track “C:drive. Sound Memories” OST, Onigokko! OST, Harupoco drama CD and Taikimi OST. They all come out on January 27th.
YuzuSoft is holding a illustration contest for DRACU-RIOT!, until April 30th. Ecchi drawings are fine so long as there’s no need for censoring.
Mobile game Triangle x Complex starts up this January. It is a love triangle simulation where you can practice your communication skills.
Doujin circle RABBIT-GARDEN’s next all-ages title is Four Revolve For Relief, with a demo out at C81. A letter appears in Okiomi’s hand warning that a girl that he admires, Akemi, will die in four days in a traffic accident. The handwriting is his own and no matter how many times he throws the letter away, it magically returned back to his hand. Four days later, the warning came true as Akemi is struck by a car in front of the train station. Then time loops back to four days ago and he notices a letter in his hand. Will he be able to save her by changing fate?
The Shining Hearts visual collection featuring Tony’s artwork came out on December 26th. sprite/fairys’ Ima Sugu Oniichan ni Imouto Da tte Iitai! is getting a manga adaptation in Dengeki Daioh. There’s a sample manga up on the Hatsuyuki Sakura site. Love! Friendship! It has it all!
Majikoi‘s Yukie is getting a figure from Kotobukiya this summer, priced at ¥7980. It is a Hobby Japan exclusive (February and March 2012 issues). Kotobukiya also has a 1/8 scale figure of Shining Blade‘s Sakuya Mode: Cerulean coming out in May at ¥7140.
Keep yourself warm at night with an extra-large and extra-warm mofumofu blanket of Hoshikaka‘s Madoka. Make sure Koyori doesn’t see you though…
Ok, I lied. I somehow found some time to work on the blog during the holidays. In the midst of (waiting in a line amongst) the chaos that is shopping on Boxing Day, I was thinking how similar it was to Comiket which was also happening over this week. I also managed to clear a lot of my manga backlog, including most of the CLAMP series (xxxHolic, Tsubasa, Chobits). Chii is so cute.
The Otaku Christmas pics on Sankaku have a few that feature Sana. I keep wondering if one of them is you. by Wrathkal
Of course not. As a caring nii-san, why would I divulge intimate pictures of my dear imouto to strangers?
