And so this is the final fandisk to the Starry Sky series! ε=＼＿○ﾉ ｲﾔｯﾎｰｩ！ Aside from getting after stories with Tsubasa, Kazuki & Hayato, we also get to do some routes with Ooshirou and Shiki (who was shoved in last minute forcing this game to be delayed by almost a year.) This time they don’t waste any moment and go right into the after stories without any kind of prologue or another story at the beginning.
And so we have the Autumn fan disk. The game features “Another Story” for each teacher which basically starts off 5 years after the bad ends of the first game. The “After Story” then starts off from the “good ends” of the game and goes on until past Tsukiko graduating from college and marrying the guy. In addition, there’s a common route which has 5 different endings for the 5 skittles, that were introduced in the PSP game. Skip to my final thoughts to avoid spoilers as usual..

So I’m sure everyone’s heard it by now but for anyone who’s been under a rock:
We are proud to announce that we will be releasing Fate/Extra and Hakuoki for the PSP!—
Aksys Games (@aksysgames) July 02, 2011
So yea Hakuoki & Starry Sky have been picked up by USA publishers. My thoughts? Well I’m jealous that I can’t be working on these projects with them and getting paid for it! (not that it would ever happen seeing how I’m on the opposite end of the coast il||li＿|￣|○il||liｶﾞｰﾝ。 ) I’m not really that excited as I don’t think Starry Sky or Hakuoki franchises are ALL THAT GREAT. There’s a lot of better games (Cough TAKUYO cough) but for a foot into the otome market I think they made the right choice. Let’s face it, I still get a shit ton of hits daily on my starry sky in spring post and I get hits for Hakuoki in RUSSIAN. So needless to say, I think both games have a pretty big following despite what anyone may think and it will help earn revenue for both companies so that perhaps one day they can pick up better games for the English market.
And so we have the fandisk for Summer! Right off the bat I’m just going to say how much better this is than the Spring fandisk. I guess when the original is awesome the FD is awesome and when the original is fail well you get the picture ( ´_ゝ`). The story starts out with a common route where everyone from the archery club gathered together at some izakaya after 4 years and reminisce about their high school days. From there you pick which dude you wanna follow and then you can proceed to do that guy’s after story. In the common route everyone flashed back to their 3rd year of high school and their training camp for archery. Inukai and Shiratori got into a fight and then made up. They have a test of courage and the 3 new guys along with Tsukiko scare the pants off everyone Koguma becomes the next captain after Miyaji’s retirement and Azusa takes the vice captain position (saying he’s not meant to be a leader.) Fortunately unlike spring, they didn’t need to add in too many random characters because the cast of summer is awesome as is! Read the rest of this entry
Welcome to the never ending chronicles of eyeless…wait! It’s a miracle! Tsukiko has EYES! Thank god, the poor girl was going blind in all 4 games but finally honeybee decided to give her some face surgery. So anyway now I guess would be the time period between when the Spring series ended and the “last” CG of the game when they all got married lol. The game starts in the fall and takes place over about a 2 year period but it goes by really quickly. The first part of the game requires you to do some stupid route with some side characters which then unlocks the “after story” with one of the 3 guys (depending whose name you pick a million times in the first part.) After you finish one of the guys good ends there’s also a mini epilogue. While there are 3 endings for each guy you only need to do 1 of the endings to get all the CGs. The other endings are just extra babbling/scenario by the character and since it’s from his POV it starts to get annoying..FAST. Sigh anyway not gonna be much to write here but enjoy!

Just checked the honeybee site (or what’s left of it) for the latest announcement. The good news is, the Starry Sky After Spring fandisk has not been canceled but instead has been postponed from 11/26 to a 12/10 release.
There’s no news regarding any of their 2011 scheduled releases because they are still investigating…hopefully we’ll still be able to see fandisks for the other seasons since Spring was adjusted for release.
Amazon Japan still lists it as 11/26. I hope anyone who pre-ordered from there is notified at least lol >_>
Because let’s face it, they are far and in between all the PSP/PS2 stuff! (ノ；ω；)ノ
Kuro to Gin no Akanai Kagi. Another R-18 game by a company called little cheese (lol?) The art looks kinda nice, seems like it will be a dark game. I forgot some of the eroge seiyuu names listed but I did see Toriumi Kousuke so that’s something to look forward to This game is being released December 3rd. Looks like by the same artist as Starry Sky, can someone confirm? Read the rest of this entry
Well this is the final game in the Starry Sky series. It’s a bit sad because you know there won’t be anymore new bishies, but frankly I’m so sick of Tsukiko being a 12 timing whore!! Okay well obviously the game is fantasy but geez they could have totally used like a different girl in each game just for a change…or perhaps at least not add the fact that all the guys from the previous games are all still there. Like yea hi you totally married me in the spring game, but now I’m attending your wedding with some guy from the winter game. かなしすぐるｳﾜｧｧ—–｡ﾟ(ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡—–ﾝ!!!! The game takes place now around Tsukiko’s student council activities, which they did mention in the previous games but obviously it wasn’t the focus at the time. Anyway dramatic sarcasm aside, enjoy the winter review. As always spoilers ahead, and download/CG requests will be deleted with extreme burning hatred of 1000 suns.
Heard it first from Keo via twitter and did some googling to find a Japanese blog entry on it. Looks like it will be from the same director as Vampire Knight so expect very smexy bishies, but hopefully with less angst. The magazine scan from the blog shows only the Spring guys but hopefully they will include everyone. On the downside, it’s very unlikely that Tsukiko will end up with anyone because then 11 guys will end up crying.
Oh well as long as I get my dose of Homare-senpai~ (〃ω〃)
And so we’re back with the fall season game. Just as the others it features Tsukiko and her 3 eligible bachelors – in this case, her teachers. As expected one of the main “plotlines” of the game is just that – she’s a student, they’re teachers, IT’S A FORBIDDEN RELATIONSHIP! The thing is it doesn’t feel that bad to me because 2 of them are younger than me and one of them is the same age as my husband xDDD. There’s a couple weird things though. Suzuya and Kanata are still around to “look out” after Tsukiko in text form but they never have any dialogue on or off screen (although they do appear in one of the CGs.) The other thing is that Tsukiko mentions how Yoh went back to France but she also said this in the Summer game and boom he’s there in the background of Cgs in both this and the summer game. Talk about inconsistency lol. While it appears that Tsukiko continues her archery club activities, only the teacher in charge is ever mentioned (obviously since he’s one of the main characters) but the 3 summer boys do appear in one of the CGs. (Homare senpai (´；ω；`)) Anyway spoilers & stuff after the jump!
Similarly to the spring version, the heroine is…YOU. No. The heroine is Yohisa Tsukiko and it feels really weird because all the guys from the previous games still go to her school but they’re basically background characters. In addition, there have been cameo appearances made by characters who will be in the autumn and winter games This time the story takes place from June – August, and the main focus is Tsukiko is now a member of the archery club where she gets to snag the top 3 arrow shooting bishies. I’ve been requested to tell what signs the guys are so….Azusa is Sagittarrius, Ryunosuke is Scorpio (like me!), and Homare is Taurus. The thing is – based on their birthdates though, Homare should be Gemini, Ryunosuke should be Sagittarius. Azusa is ok though he just makes the cut off date. I’m not really sure what astrology calendar the makers of this game are following to be honest lol. Read the rest of this entry
Thanks to a blog reader I was able to get this game. I didn’t know what to expect going in, (I always go into these things pretty blindly lol) but I was fangasmic when I found out Ono Daisuke, Midorikawa Hikaru and Sugita Tomokazu were the voices of the 3 dudes you can get with in the game. *________* God my dreams come true seiyuu in an otome game lmao xDDDDD Read the rest of this entry
