DreamParty Tokyo 2014 spring has been cancelled due to lack of exhibitors. After 9 years running, it will now be a character goods shop. This does not bode well for the eroge industry since this event is pretty much the premier event outside of Comiket.
PULLTOP is releasing a variety pack for Konosora this spring called Snow Presents. It features a mini story with Kotori during the winter, a CD of the Soaring Club’s winter camp, as well as maxi single with Kotori’s character song.
CIRCUS’ D.C.III P.P. has been delayed to April 25th! I guess that means it’ll be a while till I get to be with Sara since Sakusaku is also in that month. Maple Software’s Natsuiro☆Macchiato has been pushed back once again to late 2014.
piriri! has started up a chara poll for Kimikishi and it runs until March 14th. The winner will get some character goods.
There’s a 1/5 scale figure coming out this June from Amie-Grand for Muramasa from Nitro’s Muramasa. The finished product costs ￥20,000, but you can get the kit for only ￥12,000.
You like Maia? Well, Purple Software has made a Maia clock and mobile pocket Maia live wallpaper app for Google Play. Does it do anything special? Well, not really… but you can have Maia with you all the time! I guess that’s something special!
I’m casually playing Hinako’s route in Innocent Girl. Why does this always happen to me? T_T
Doujin circle Initial Soft‘s debut work is Happy Sister Utopia!, coming out on April 29th. It has good art like Steroider, as well as a similar character set-up. But this one has a big-breasted “The GOD” in sukumizu. Other new titles announced this week include:
A collection of Rakko’s artwork will be on shelves on March 31st. It will include her works for HOOKSOFT from LikeLife to MeltyMoment.
Both August’s Eustia and TYPE MOON’s Fate/hollow ataraxia are being ported over to the PSV. FlyingShine’s CROSS†CHANNEL will be out on the PS3/PSV on June 26th. The PSP port for Rewrite is scheduled for April 17th.
The second Koishiki Manual chara poll runs until March 21st.
New figures announced this week include:
BEAT – 1/6 scale Sasara pool sukumizu/white sukumizu ver. (TH2, June, ￥8800)
Max Factory – figma Hazuki (Toushin Toshi, June, ￥3704)
Phat! – 1/8 scale Mika charisma girl ver. (im@s CG, August, ￥12,800)
Now that the Olympics are over (and Canada swept the hockey golds, again), I’m back to playing trials. Luckily, a lot of them came out this week, mostly for March releases. However, the one I went straight for Studio Ryokucha’s Minakoi! It gives off a similar feel to Koisora, different from Iwaou. Elise is omochikaeri material… just need to soften her a bit.
The library club is eternal! August’s Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai was voted as the best eroge of the past year in Getchu’s bishoujo game awards 2013, just before the release of its fandisk in March. Wrapping up the top three are hibiki works’ LOVELY×CATION2 and Navel’s Otome Riron to Sono Shuuhen.
Daito also had the best music, and was surprisingly voted 3rd in system, ahead of some SLG/ACTs. Best system was awarded to L×C2, which also captured best OP. Otomeriron captured the best scenario, as well as the top character in Luna. Daito‘s Kanasuke and Otomeriron‘s imouto Resona weren’t far behind. Clochette’s Pricolle had the best graphics (swayed by oppai) and the ero category went to Frill’s Seishoujo. Congrats to all the winners!
Astronauts Sirius’ Demonion II has been delayed to April 25th, while release dates have been set for the following titles:
Lose’s Monobeno -MORE SMILE- for Natsuha will feature append H scenes, illustrations and voice clips. It comes out on April 25th for ￥3000, although you can get a dakimakura of Natsuha in a wedding dress for ￥9000 more.
Hina topped Sengoku Koihime‘s Hinamatsuri chara poll. This makes absolute sense. A wallpaper will be available on March 3rd (Hinamatsuri).
The Cocoro@Function! visual fan book will be on shelves on March 18th.

Clochette’s OP Song Collection will be on shelves on February 28th for ￥1260. It contains the OPs from Sakigake, Pricolle and Kamikaze, all sung by AiRI.
The latest Super Sonico figure is from Orchid Seed. This 1/5 scale Sonicomi package ver. -Berry!- will be out in June for ￥11,429. They all look the same to me~
Eroge companies never fail to disappoint on Valentine’s Day, with many choco and ribbon-filled wallpapers for you to download. A small selection include SAGA PLANETS’ Karumaruka, MOONSTONE’s Love Sweets, Cabbit’s Nyan Cafe Macchiato, Baseson’s Sengoku Koihime and PULLTOP’s Konosora.
Played through a few trials, including PULLTOP Latte’s Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort. It has a similar relaxing feel as their first title Tototo. The trial covers part of the route for main heroine kouhai Umi, who slowly grew on me.
Yuzupara has a SR Sana for Valentine’s event! I want her!!!
WHITESOFT’s Gangsta Alcadia has been scheduled for May 30th.
Debonosu is planning an extra scenario for Senjou no Folklore, coming out on April 25th. It will feature 30 new HCGs of the new main heroines Maria and Isabel.
Opera is too powerful. I think she must’ve pulled some tricks to secure first in the Endless Dungeon chara poll. Chara polls have started up for Kiss Ato and Shin Shirogane no Soleil (until February 28th). There’s also a Hinamatsuri poll for Sengoku Koihime with the winner rewarded with a wallpaper. It seems like Hina is leading so far.
A recolor version of Persona4‘s Mitsuru is coming out in April from Vertex. It’s priced at ￥12,960.
Koyomi is next up in the Karumaruka dakimakura series. Mmm… delicious…
Now we finally know the birthdays for the Hatsusaku cast! Next up is bunny!
The Olympics are underway and I’ll be spending the next two weeks watching everything. Go Canada! ^o^
WHITESOFT is making a sequel, Nekonade Distortion Renai Jishou no Dead End, where all the characters are now voiced by Kotoko (Samoto Fuuri). Including the dad. This must be a wonderful gift for Fuurin fans.

Phew, that’s a lot of news to go through. My apologies for the post being a bit late since I was bedridden the past couple days due to food poisoning (not Chinami’s fault). I’ve been playing Clover Heart’s as usual (on Rio’s route now after finishing up Madoka subroute), but took a break to play MeltyMoment. I finished earnest kouhai Misao, who was the only character that I was really interested in. Well, I guess carefree senpai Aoi is good too, but Yuuka and Natsuki lacked any depth. I liked how the ending CG changed depending on your choices through the route. My favourite was the four-leaf clover bookmark.
The third chapter of ωstar’s Bishoujo Mangekyou: Kami ga Tsukuritamouta Shoujo-tachi will be out sometime this year. The protagonist Ryounosuke is a self-proclaimed mad scientist who created two dream maid robots, Alice and Doroshii.
Getchu’s 2013 bishoujo-ge award polls have started. You have until January 31st to put in your votes! Help me flood the character poll with imoutos!
TRUMPLE’s Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete has been green-lit for an anime adaptation. Well, that art is nice, but let’s see if they can carry that art across to a different medium or will it end up like Koichoco…
For those into cosplaying, BOO-COS has the Karumaruka seifuku for sale. I guess it would help if you’re a girl too.
I’ll be going on vacation until January 27th. Take care everyone and keep your imoutos warm during this cold winter!
Windmill is revamping one of its popular titles with the E-mote system: Happiness! Emotion! Now you can have Jun seduce you in high quality too! Other new releases announced this week include:
ETERNAL – Kenseiki Alpha Ride
Minato Soft – Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya o Mezasu
onomatope* – Kanojo ga Ore ni Kureta Mono. Ore ga Kanojo ni Ageru Mono.
FLAT’s Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa has been delayed to February 28th, while release dates have been set for the following:
Saori kept first place in the second Timepiece Ensemble chara poll and will get a dakimakura. There’s a third chara poll which is starting up, ending on January 18th. The twins were both popular in the Izayoi no Fortuna chara poll, but it was Shigure who came out on top. Wait, how did Kanae beat Meguri in the Moteyaba chara poll??? Is this the power of the main heroine? I wanted a Meguri wallpaper… T_T
Lots of white in this week’s new figures available for preorder. They are 1/8 scale Saber from Fate/Extra CCC, coming out in June for ￥10,800, and 1/8 scale Sakuya -Mode: seraphim- from Shining Ark, shipping in May for ￥15,800.
I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays. Especially those off on crusades in a far away land.
tone work’s‘s 2nd title, Hoshiori Yume Mirai, looks pretty nice. However, I’m still relatively bitter over Hatsukoi 1/1 (or rather Runa), so I’m not sure if I want to walk into another landmine just yet…
Oh hey, it’s another stripping game from Escu:de! Just the silhouettes are up for Hanayome to Maou ~Oushitsu no Harem wa Gekokujou~, but I’m definitely hoping for more content to be revealed soon! Their games are awfully fun to play, especially with all the ridiculous premises ^^
Other new titles announced this week include:
ensemble – Golden Marriage
Innocent Grey – FLOWERS (April 18th)
MOONSTONE – Love Sweets (April 25th)
ωstar – Bishoujo Mangekyou Katsute Shoujo no Kimi e (February 28th)

The fourth volume of the LOVELY×CATION2 raburabu birthday collection features genki kouhai Hinata! It comes out on her birthday, January 23rd. There’s also other music CDs coming out in the same month: Actress vocal collection “Akukore!!” (January 24th), light vocal collection V (January 31st) and the ElectroArms OP/ED Maxi CD.
Konosora continues to fly high with a console version planned from 5pb., Kono Aozora ni, Tsubasa o Hirogete -Cruise Sign-.
For some reason, Overflow has a game for the 3DS coming out in spring 2014 called Island Days. I thought they were done making games?
This week’s batch of C85/Denkigai dakimakura are: Kiraoto‘s Yuri, ElectroArms‘ Leona, Tsukioto‘s Runa and Otomeriron‘s Risona, LoveOf‘s Isami (Isanyan) and Erika, Natsukumo‘s Shiho and Himeka, Chiikano‘s Shione and Mizuka, Owaba‘s Ili and Cassandra, Berry’s‘ Ena and Youko and Kurafuta‘s Yae and Mikoto.
I also want the Palette 10th anniversary calendar, which showcases all their games.
Finished up Moteyaba and Meguri is such a great imouto. It’s nice to see her feelings for her dear nii-san get through. Yurika is also pretty cute with her blushing. Can’t say no to a small senpai (who’s more like a kouhai). The plot wasn’t anything to write home about, but it was a nice chara-ge. I was intending to play Sakuoto, but I’ve been swamped with things to do in this holiday season.
Merry Christmas to all! Hope you can find some time during the holidays to be with your bishoujos.
It may have been a relatively dull winter so far, but there’s lots to look forward to next spring! ALcot’s Clover Day’s has been schedule for March 28th, while FAVORITE’s AstralAir no Shiroki Towa will be out on April 25th. Couple that with D.C.III P.P., Daito DS and Sakusaku and you’ve got yourself quite an exciting lineup!
Release dates have also been set for the following:
The following titles have been delayed:
Rinon and Hagar won the Gensou no Idea and Shin Shirogane no Soleil chara polls, respectively. The Moteyaba chara poll has started up and will run until December 20th, while the Sakuoto chara poll ends on January 17th. It’s not far-fetched to see an imouto double victory here with Meguri and Yuri.
The science ADV series 5 years jubilee commemorative book will feature info about 5pb.’s next title Chaos;Child, in addition to staff interviews and an original comic.
More delicious dakimakura from upcoming events: Noblesse of Rouge‘s Porthos, Gensou no Idea‘s Rinon, Hoshinone‘s Hisui, Karumaruka‘s Shin, Gangsta Republica‘s Misogi and all the heroines from Koiken Otome (Yuzu, Akane, Touko, Yves). Or you could get an Innocent Girl tissue box.
Time to be with my dear imouto Meguri, who had been patiently waiting for me these two long weeks. What a wonderful way to spend my birthday ^^
