After much delay, I’ve finished Nekopara Vol.1! Chocola and Vanilla are both great, but I’ve grown to really love Vanilla! I’m so glad I’m a horny pastry puffer with catpanions! I can’t wait till the next volume! Now it’s on to the much darker Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia…

Cospatio has a renewal version of Feena’s dress from Yoake. It won’t cost you a fortune – only ￥82,080.
I really should get back to playing eroge. Been busy doing other stuff for the past month, so there’s a backlog starting to build up (Nekopara, Nostalgia, some trials). Chocola and Vanilla are waiting for me!

Everyone knows about shooting stars and tanzaku, but did you know that mirrors and loli whales also grant wishes? There’s not too many titles this month, but there’s some chara-ge with varying levels of plot included. MintCUBE’s Ama Koi Syrups, Whirlpool’s Kujiragami no Tearstilla and YuzuSoft’s
Sonuva*itch Sanoba Witch should tide you over until March. minori’s Soreyori no Prologue promises to be a good title as well.
For such a small month I am surprisingly hopeful for the games being released. Though my embittered hatred of the continued monotony the entire industry is suffering continues, sigh. Still there is enough here to give me some hope, and maybe nudge others ever so slightly to stop copy pasting the same games over and over again. After all there isn’t much point when a game feels as though the writing and story are just there as a conduit for H scenes.

It sure has been quiet on the news front for the past couple weeks. With the delays, there’s not much in January and February, but March is looking like a beast. Maybe work on the backlog now?
Tigre is making a pair of new games, one of which is Maboroshi no Dystopia. SILKY’S PLUS has also announced their next title, Neyuki no Genei, a horror and suspense AVG set in a Western-style boarding house which used to be a all-girls’ mission school dormitory.
The following titles have been delayed:
Orca Toys has yet another risqué ToHeart2 figure coming out this July: a 1/5 scale figure of Sasara white bunny ver. It costs a smooth ￥13,800. Does that mean there’ll be a red version coming in the future? GSC has a nendoroid of Fate‘s Rider available for preorder for ￥3704.
The CLANNAD official English release kickstarter finished with a total of $541,161. Good job, guys!
The Sanoba Witch OP came out and I wasn’t really impressed with it even though it was fully animated.
Played through a few trials this week and I liked Yuki Koi Melt. It retains the same charm as Pure Girl and Innocent Girl. I can’t wait to play the full game in March. Just don’t touch the nekomimi!
