B’s Log October 2012
Only 1 more issue left after this but I think Kino finally started carrying more than 1 issue in the store. When I walked in today they had like 2 Girls Styles and 3 B’s Log issues just sitting there in the magazine section . Maybe I will consider buying an individual issue if it has tokutens I want but seeing how next issue has an UtaPri tote bag….I am not planning to renew. ( ´_ゝ`)
And now the Tokutens:
Aside from the Hyakki poster that I’ve added to my Quin Rose wall…….yea the rest is just getting stuffed back into the magazine. Also I sound like a broken record but Hana-Awase is so revolting:
The revolting artwork just adds on to the revolting scene that’s going on in this picture ==;
This is old news but all the Tokyo Yamanote Boys games are being ported to PSP. They will cost like 5k yen for regular and like 8k for limited which will come with some stuff like headphones or something. Seeing how TYB is SO SHORT it feels like a huge ripoff to me…especially since in my eyes the only real plot was in Dark Cherry anyway…
Also old news but Amnesia is getting a 2nd game that takes place AFTER Later as well as the upcoming anime in 2013.
Seishun hajimemashita cast has been announced. Here’s my beef with the fat kid besides the fact that poor Kishio has to voice him. I’m sure tumblr’s got their panties in a bunch saying I’m a fat hater or w/e but my problem is he doesn’t look like a fat kid. The way he’s drawn he looks like some kind of troll beast. Kazuaki clearly has no idea how to draw fat or even “somewhat portly” characters so she drew a blob with some eyes and a kyuubey mouth. In addition to making this kid be fat, he’s a stereotypical fat otaku who likes manga and videogames so I’m sure you can probably guess what his entire route will be about. I miss it when the otaku kid was skinny with swirly glasses in STEP at least that was combating the overweight otaku stereotype. Anyway I like that the heroine is being voiced by Horie Yui. I think she would be a better Alice too, over Kugimiya Rie (what was QR thinking when they cast her for the movie.)
Butterfly Lip cast has been announced. Your boyfriend is Kishio and your cheating manwhore is Hirakawa. This will be interesting and extremely not worth the price.
Otomate delays Diabolik Lovers and other games, news at 11. In the scenario for this CG its actually Yui being idiotic and biting his lip when he kisses her. Wow so who’s the violent one now? Though afterwards he tells HER to drink his blood. The tables have turned!
B’s Log is teaming up with Rejet to release some goods like a 27″ x 19″ poster/scrunchie/microfiber mini cloth set for 1500 yen. Not sure if this will be available overseas. First set will be Ayato & Shuu. I’d prefer to play the game first before jumping on these goods since the drama CDs…er yea.
Kamigami no Asobi cast announced a while back so this is also old news. Yay for Kamiya Hiroshi, I haven’t heard him since Drastic Killer
Also here’s the Kamigami heroine. Her hair reminds me of the heroine from Genroh…lol…
D3P is pimping more of their upcoming mobile games. What struck me was this one titled “Sensei Ikenai koto tte Nandesuka?” おまわりさん、こいつらです。
Information about the Vitamin Z fandisk is finally announced along with a teaser movie. What bugs me is rather than it being a fandisk or after story it seems like they’re basically REDOING the “last month” of the game before the graduation. Hopefully it’s more than just that otherwise D3P……（ಠ_ಠ）
Custom Drive…why are you so precious..
Hiirogelion! Now I’m curious about the 2nd season, as it seems they’ve gotten a decent animation team but that means I’d have to force myself to watch like 9 episodes that look like a 10 year old drew them.
Also announced at Otomate party is Princess Arthur. You get to makeout with Lancelot and Tristan! For some reason I expceted Quin Rose to do something like this but I guess Otomate jumped on the bandwagon first.
Takuyo finally released their first mobile game but …FOR FUCKING GREE. Takuyo seriously I am so disappointed in you. Oh well so much for that.
Arabians Doubt ｷﾀ(ﾉ゜∀゜)ﾉ━━━。;*:゜:+,.○*:゜.:+;*:゜:+,.○*:゜.:⌒━ I already shitspazzed about this on my FC2 blog but a sequel to Arabians Lost is coming next year (most likely Feb or March.) It brings back everyone but this time includes Aileen’s exboyfriend Theodore and the guy he serves, Jared. The story takes place as if Aileen reached her goal but then her parents run off like they usually do but instead of her taking over the throne with whoever’s route you’re on – you now have to get a dude to help you. The best news is: The battle system is bye bye. The game will be a straight VN! ε=＼＿○ﾉ ｲﾔｯﾎｰｩ！
|萌|･´∀`･)ﾊｧﾊｧ 萌えぇぇ↑ Diamond Alice is slated for release on December 20th as I had guessed. Best Christmas present ever! I’m getting over my sadness that Peter isn’t in the game but it can’t be helped since the game takes place in the past – it’s an IF scenario as in what if Alice was sent back to BEFORE heart no kuni and into the previous diamond no kuni.
In one of the 4komas they totally show a spade listed so I’m totally taking this as a hint that they will make a Spade game in 2013 Crossing my fingers.
Just some sneak peeks of upcoming QR games scenarios. I’ve already pre-ordered Hyakki so looking fwd to that one a lot.
While Otomate’s been on my shitlist this year, I’d still like to play Confidential Money. The games by this team have been pretty decent (Musketeer, Death Connection) and it takes place in NYC so it will be fun for me for other reasons .
GHP art looks really cute and colorful which makes sense since the person who directed Beastmaster is working on this. Hoping that despite the horrid Mary Sue premise, this game might end up being surprisingly fun.
TYB Black Vanilla is coming next month but I haven’t even started on Pure Raspberry yet since I’ve been in Alice land for a while lol. I’ll get it hopefully soon or marathon these 2 games back to back.
Enjoy this guy’s raep face when you play yandere heaven ladies! This may be like the first R-18 otome game ever that makes it blatant on what its contents is. Unlike fluffy colorful games full of candy that have NTR rape in their endings if you know what I mean (´＾ω＾｀)
There was an interview with Fujimaru Mamenosuke (who’s doing the Diamond Alice art and did the art for all those Alice mangas I bought). He (or she?) said that they didn’t draw animu characters until in their mid 20s and now draws on a daily basis because it’s the way of life to make a living. Started out just posting random pictures but eventually got contacted by Quin Rose to do anthologies which got them where they are today. It was a nice interview to read.
The Sangoku Rensenki artist drew a Ken Doll….if you know what I mean.
I didn’t bother with the rankings because it’s the same UtaPri/Hakuoki Characters every month jfc =___=. This is why I’m sick of B’s Log every month. A lot of Otomate stuff I skipped (Wand of Fortune, Hiiro 4) and any BL or Drama CDs cause lol whatever. I can’t seem to listen to drama CDs unless they’re part of a game so at least I “know” the characters? Though so far the only time I’ve listened to fun drama CDs were from Quin Rose games. Though I will admit Amnesia Later’s preorder drama CD was pretty entertaining.
On the topic of drama CDs I sat down and played a bit of Shinobazu Seven demo:
To be honest I’m crying a river because of how NICE the system is and the huge resolution and the lovely crisp graphics….but I refuse to pay $35 per game for 6 games. The worst part is they’re not all self contained – they actually all have an ongoing story so if you say only buy certain ones, the ongoing story won’t fully resolve. It fully resolves in Taku’s disc (which I did want to buy because I liked his CD) but the fact that only like 4 stores even sell this pretty much forces anyone outside Japan to use a proxy or buy from ComiComi studio. I think I’ll pass or hope someone rips a copy >_>.
