It took 10 years, but makura’s Sakura no Uta is actually coming out. Those that can’t get enough of Sayori’s art can enjoy SMILE’s Boku to Koi Suru Ponkotsu Akuma.. Take initiative and find yourself a girlfriend in GIGA’s Ren’ai Phase. If you still have your Juukishi disc, you can get AkabeiSoft3’s knight maiden drama Seikishi Melty☆Lovers for free!
Another month filled with disappointment, mediocrity, and backlogs. Yet at the bottom of it all there is some hope for a few enjoyable games, at least more than usual that’s for sure. Most will at best be enjoyable time wasters which already makes it a pretty good month, but one or two may actually end up being good. Not that I expect it but hey you never know when a game may turn out to be a diamond in the rough.
The anime adaptation for Aokana will be produced by Gonzo. It is scheduled to air in winter 2016, most likely in January. I hope they don’t butcher it too badly, especially the visuals. They’ll probably go with Asuka’s route, while touching on parts from Misaki’s route. I’d be happy with ample Shiro-nyan.
Release dates have been set for the following:
Lose’s third outfit poll for Maitetsu narrows down the list of choices to 40 for each character. The top 10-20 will be considered for the game.

I’ve got so many trials to play, but I’m reading Tree of Savior stuff all day long instead. This must be what they call withdrawal. It’s also been ridiculous humid this week and I’m dying with no A/C. Luckily, there’s a solution to everything: a healthy dose of catgirls.

While the first three routes in LOVEREC. (Chiho, Miyuki, Nori) were so-so, the true end (Hitomi) had a much more complete story and tied in elements from the other routes. There were even some delicious bonus material afterwards. While I enjoyed the game, I still feel that it is more of an ALcot Honey Comb title than one from the parent company… or maybe Clover Day’s was just too good in my opinion.
I’ll be flying out on a trip to the west coast for a week and a half. There’ll be no weekly news next Friday.
