Great Expectations

July 13, 2012 at 10:46 pm 14 comments

As expected, there will be an anime adaptation for D.C.III! It’s planned for the upcoming winter season, starting in January. Will they intend to make it into a 2-cour series? I’m not sure if there’s enough content in the prologue to last 12 eps, but maybe they’ll add more scenes at Kazami Gakuen, before it heads into Weather Vane chapter. Either way, I’m really excited!! ^o^

But that’s not the only D.C.III announcement! There’s also going to be a D.C.III Dash Ver1.3 USB Memory version scheduled for September 28th. It can be played from a USB as it doesn’t require installation, and adds an Aoi route, a new ultimate battle story, as well as the gnulric mini-game I was wishing for! Players who bought the original game will be able to update for free. The official perfect visual book also comes out on July 30th! I love being a D.C. fanboy.

catwalk also announced their next title: Maou to Odore! Code:Arcana (October 26th). Clochette’s boobfest Prism◇Recollection! has been scheduled for December 21st.

Sphere’s Imouto no Katachi has been delayed to August 31st. Coupled with Irohika‘s postponement, July is now without my Top 2 titles. T_T

The novel adaptation by Famitsu Bunko for August’s next title Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai overture will be on shelves August 30th, but you can get your first taste of the story in the TECH GIAN Super Prelude trial on July 27th. The first volume of the Robotic;Notes manga is out, while a novel adaptation for Ore no Kanojo no Uraomote is planned.

Smartphone versions are out for F&C’s Komorebi no Namikimichi and BaseSon’s Koihime†Musou.

Windmill’s releasing the individual character song CDs for Witch’s Garden over the next two months, with Ayari and Suzuno out on July 25th and Ririko and Misumi out on August 22nd. They’ll be priced at ¥1260 each. The Koichoco anime character song album, “Chocolate Selection”, comes out on August 22nd. 07th Expansion celebrates the 10th anniversay of Higurashi at C82 with a commemorative CD, “you&history”. It’s not limited to just Higurashi, but also includes songs from Umineko, Ougon Musoukyoku and Higanbana.

With C82 just around the corner, there’s more dakimakura’s being announced, including Koichoco‘s Isara (あっは~☆), Astraythem’s Natsuki, Promia‘s Enothera and Cachette and also one from Natsuiro Residence (probably Akuru). Chuable Soft will also have a drama CD and vocal album out for Astraythem.

Good thing that I kept with Hatsukoi 1/1 as Yukino’s and Midori’s routes were so much better. Thanks to those that encouraged me to stick with it. Yuuma definitely wasn’t as dense, although arguably still kinda useless in Yukino’s route. Thankfully, that’s what friends are there for. It seems his character changes yet again in Maya’s route, although I like his character in Midori’s the most. Her route was my fav so far.That’s how drama should be done, especially the cell phone scene. Now if only Runa had a route…

    Maoh to Odore! Wonder if they’re going to keep the same style of gameplay or bring new things to the table. I did enjoy their previous game.

    Hmm, haven’t been exactly active with anime these few seasons so don’t really know who to root for in saimoe…will be interesting to see who wins :D

    Lillian announced a dakimakura of Lullshare, among other things.

    Also, cheers for D.C. III animu (though that Dash thing confuses me), and Witch’s Garden is looking good as well.

    “… and adds an Aoi route …”

    Isn’t there already an Aoi route in the game?

    Reply
    • 6. Micchi  |  July 14, 2012 at 3:34 pm

      The original Aoi route is more a lead-in to Da Capo route. This new Aoi route should be different.

        But there’s a reason it’s a lead in to DC. Well, we’ll have to wait and see.

    Maya was my favorite from Hatsukoi 1/1. Her initial tsun made the sweet moments sweeter. Although I didn’t completely understand the story–is she really a supernatural being? I didn’t really try to read that part–just skimmed and read some of it. Could you explain the situation? Like the documentary Yuuma was watching or the movie about it mentioned?

      Maya’s story:

      Maya was a promising child actress, but ever since the 15th movie of the Baccura series which she was the lead heroine for, she stopped acting and could not even stand in front of a camera any more. Part of it was because the movie was not well received at all and some of the blame fell on her role as Hina, but also it was during that time when her parents divorced.

      Maya had taken up acting and gave it her best, in order to appease her parents and others, and bring happiness to everyone. But she felt that all it did was bring misfortune. Just like Hina’s situation in Baccura, she felt that she was alone with no one there to save her. Ever since then, her mother had been constantly pushing for her to return to acting, and a fellow child actress in Baccura, Rinon, also wanted her to return due to her own reasons (partially jealousy). They took advantage of her role in the commercials promoting the cafeteria to try to make her return.

      She was steadfast in her decision, but Yuuma wanted to see her back as an actress again, as his first ‘love’ was seeing her role as Hina in Baccura. Maya finally overcomes her fear of cameras (by concentrating on the viewers on the other side of the camera instead of the camera itself) and manages to watch the entirety of the movie after being reassured by Yuuma that no matter what, he will always be by her side, protecting her.

      There’s also a part with them heading to Tokyo to find her father who she hadn’t talked to since her parents’ divorce, and realizing that he was working hard for his new family (instead of just using the money she made during acting as she thought), and also met her little sister Hinami. It helped her realize that everyone else was doing their best, when she was just running away from her past.

        Ah, thanks. That clears things up. I hadn’t actually finished playing any of the routes–she was just my favorite character, I guess. After playing some more yesterday I kind of understood she’s an actress. But your explanation was great, thanks.

        Maya was a good heroine, but where’s the no love for Kyo route? Admittedly, I’ve yet to do Yukino route, but I found Kyo a lot more interesting than Midori and Runa.

        • 12. Takami  |  July 16, 2012 at 7:49 pm

          Oh, I like Kyo, too! She’s like my second favorite. Honestly–at first glance at the game–I thought she was the most attractive. She’s quirky, and seems more fun to be around. But Maya took first place after I actually tried the game. And then I think Yukino is also second place–idk she’s just too sweet–the voice acting was also really fitting. Like, very soothing and gentle, like Yukino’s personality, which got me.

        • 13. Micchi  |  July 16, 2012 at 8:01 pm

          I played Kyou’s last so I hadn’t finished it when this post was written. Now that I’ve finished it, I think that the route was OK – not great, but definitely not bad. I liked her bacouple moments and I’m a sucker for any sports-related themes. The first part of the story was a bit slow though, maybe since it’s not as ‘melodramatic’ as the other routes (not necessarily a bad thing). Now I want pizza.

        • 14. Takami  |  July 16, 2012 at 8:47 pm

          She’s really cute! Yeah, I was craving some pizza, too after playing lol. Except a cute girl would never show up at my door with my pizza. (´Д⊂ヽ
