Welcome to Hau~ Omochikaeri~! The main purpose of this site is to provide information about upcoming eroge to English speakers, via the following categories:

  • Monthly releases. At the beginning of every month, Micchi and Zen outline the upcoming eroge and their thoughts about them. Cover art, release dates, story synopses (based on official site and any available trials), OP videos and game site links are included. Note that our opinions are just that and our top games of the month are a subjective ranking. Your opinions and rankings will most likely differ from ours.
  • Weekly news. Micchi lists selected news from the eroge realm every Friday. News of eroge-related items, such as anime, manga, light novels, console games and merchandise will also be included.
  • Eroge reviews. Micchi and Zen reviewed games that they have played fully, along with plenty of CGs and screenshots. The rating system is different depending on the reviewer. Currently, we no longer write reviews.
  • Upcoming eroge. On the sidebar is a list of upcoming eroge in chronological order of release dates. They are linked to the game sites. This section is updated daily.
  • Eroge-related links. There are a lot of other English eroge sites. Please visit them too! In addition, a list of eroge resource sites (predominantly in Japanese) is available too on the sidebar.

In addition, the site will also occasionally provide anime and figure impressions and reviews. Depending on time availability, match results and posters will also be available during Saimoe season.

Due to the nature of the content of this site, the majority of links will be to mature (18+) sites. Most of them are to Japanese sites. Please take note of this while browsing and click accordingly. Thanks for your understanding.

Note that we try our best to ensure the accuracy of the provided information, but there sometimes may be unintended errors. Please feel free to let us know in such cases.

Please do not ask for eroge download links. Such comments would be deleted immediately.


The authors of the site are Micchi, Zen and nemuiwanko. In joint posts, the comments are colour-coded: blue for Micchi, green for Zen, and coral for nemuiwanko.

About the Name

The name of the blog was inspired by Higurashi no Naku Koro ni‘s Rena Ryuuguu’s catchphrase はぅ~お持ち帰りぃ~!, which means “I want to take it home!”. This phrase captures my feeling about things that I love and care passionately about, especially cute things. Since this site is an expression of my obsessions interests, I feel that this phrase is an apt title for it.

Site History

Opened on September 2, 2008, Hau~ Omochikaeri~! is Micchi’s first blog. It originally started as a journal of Arietta’s travels in Mabinogi, continuing from the previous site On the Road to Avalon. It also reported on matches in the 2008 Saimoe and Best Moe tournaments. Over time, posts about other topics, such as eroge previews, Vocaloid songs, figures and other games increased. The site became predominantly a Mabinogi (NA) information site for upcoming patches and events.

In early March 2009, Micchi stopped playing Mabinogi and hence, ceased reporting on game updates. It has since changed into an eroge information site with reviews, previews and weekly news. Of course, posts about other topics will also appear from time to time. Reviews have been ceased since 2011.

An archive of header banners is available here.

    Why’d you stop talking about mabi and updating the site about mabi stuff =\, this used to be my source for info lol.

  • 3. Micchi  |  April 6, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    @Me: I’ve kinda stopped playing Mabi (and MMOs in general), so I’m not really keeping up with the new patches and all. The recent patch’s information should be in the most recent Mabi posts, but anything G7 or beyond won’t be here. Sorry ^^;;;

    I saw your site today. Mind if we exchange banner? my traffic is good. shoot me an email if you are ok with it.


  • 7. kgptzac  |  August 11, 2009 at 2:49 pm

    HI~ i’m working on a new blog site atm and looking for cute banners from people xD do you have a banner (of this blog) that is larger (say, 280px wide)? I ask this because I saw a larger banner on Verbal Rubbish and not here…

    Also, I thought it would be nice if I ask here before linking you guys from my blog :)

    • 8. Micchi  |  August 11, 2009 at 3:03 pm

      Well, I only use the 200×40 banners, but if you need one in a certain dimension, I can make one for ya. Just give me the height and width you want.

      Ah, no problem. You’re free to link and use banners as you wish.

    • 9. kgptzac  |  August 11, 2009 at 6:14 pm

      280×56 would be nice as the size keeps 200×40 ratio

    • 10. kgptzac  |  August 11, 2009 at 6:23 pm

      and thank you :D

      • 11. Micchi  |  August 12, 2009 at 5:22 pm

        Here you go: 280×56 Banner

      • 12. kgptzac  |  August 12, 2009 at 6:33 pm

        thx~ Though I need to work on my bullet style or else 280px wouldn’t fit like my other links ._.

  • 13. lonelyamure  |  July 25, 2010 at 2:53 am

    Micchi @_@ you let us exchange links here? I’d like to request for one!

    You already know my wordpress, no? http://lonelyamure.wordpress.com/

    Anyway, I’m going to webclap you in what seems about pretty much right now. My site’s been around for… you can say nearly a month >o> But one or two more weeks of straight blogging and maybe I can make a new widget list on my page =)

    My blog’s… basically about anything in general LOL though I mainly focus on Twitter, J-Illustrators (because I’m a big fan of them), and anything that seems socially fun at the moment XD There’s more at my about page, but be prepared to read a ton @ _ @;;

    Ne, I’ll stick in your link first. I’d like to keep that button in touch~ 200 x 40 is my most preferred button size XD But if we do manage to do an exchange, you might not get the 200 x 40 button immediately~ I’m having a friend of mine, Soso, make one for me atm, but if that takes too long, I might end up either making my own.

    • 14. Micchi  |  July 31, 2010 at 12:33 am

      Sure, I’ll do an exchange with ya. I like your features on illustrators. It’d be great to see more of them. I’ve added your link on the sidebar.

  • 15. Kitsune  |  August 28, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    Aloha Micchi,
    Hope you doing fine :)


    I`m webmaster of the http://hentaiotaku.net. The site is mostly about hentai news, hentai fetishes, releases, eroge, some pictures, etc.
    In plans is adding of tab about Japanese modern life, culture and traditions. Domain is rather old and has pr2.
    Just take a look and if you`re interested in a link exchange, pls let me know.
    Great thanks in advance :)

  • 16. Kitsune  |  August 28, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Put your banner to the taskbar first :)

  • 17. Kitsune  |  September 3, 2010 at 6:31 am

    Hi Micchi,
    sorry for nagging

    Any decisions about link exchange?

    • 18. Micchi  |  September 3, 2010 at 11:45 am

      Thanks for the link request, Kitsune. I was going to address it on the weekly news reply since you had sent a webclap as well. Unfortunately, I don’t think the NSFW themes and posts are in line of what I want this blog associated with, so I have to decline your link exchange. All the best to your site though!

  • 19. tsurugiarashix  |  September 5, 2011 at 10:23 am


    Thanks for keeping us updated with Eroge release new, Micchi. So many dates I cannot be bothered to remember, lol.

  • 23. Andyz  |  August 13, 2012 at 1:06 am

    Wow thanks for writing so much about eroge. I learned a lot from reading this site. Everything is so nice and easy to find

    • 24. Micchi  |  August 13, 2012 at 6:27 pm

      Glad you find it useful!

  • 25. subarashiki  |  January 2, 2013 at 4:51 am

    Hi, I found this site after beginning my own small string of posts covering eroge (fairly specific in genre), and everything on this site was great. I just wanted to ask about the CG’s used in the posts. My biggest worry is about copyrighted content and I thought you may be able to tell me how you protect yourself or if it has not been necessary to do so, so far.

    An e-mail or reply here would be very very helpful.


    • 26. Micchi  |  January 2, 2013 at 9:18 am

      Hello there,

      I attribute rights to the images to their respective owners. CGs for monthly posts come from Getchu and already have copyright symbols on them. If it’s used for publicity purposes, then it’s fair game. As for in-game material, I think screenshots are OK (it’s done for many Japanese blogs), but for CGs, you may wish to change the resolution. It’s not really a major issue so long as you’re not posting all CGs from the game, or claiming ownership of them.

      Basically, just be respectful. Companies do not mind you promoting their games. Of course, if they have any problems with your posts, you’re obliged to abide by it. That’s my opinion.

      • 27. subarashiki  |  January 2, 2013 at 10:05 am

        Thanks for the quick and detailed reply!
        I was wondering if you had put those symbols in yourselves but that question was answered as well. My biggest worries were the guidelines on each respective maker site prohibiting most uses (even online) aside from confirmed, unedited contents (except for rescaling or changing opacity). Considering how long the site has been going, I’m assuming your approach is correct. Again, thank you.

  • 28. dirk88  |  January 22, 2013 at 10:56 am

    authors are you in Japan now?

    • 29. Micchi  |  January 22, 2013 at 5:58 pm

      No, we do not live in Japan, although I have visited there a couple times.

    Y’all need to play Monster Girl Quest (Monmusu Quest). The whole thing. Can’t believe that isn’t mentioned once on this site. Best VN ever, believe you me, it is not what it looks like at first glance.

  • 39. veshurik  |  July 5, 2020 at 11:49 am
