Most otome gamers probably already know about this but since there may be new visitors at this site I figured I’d give a brief run down of what it is. (Also I’m trying to give an excuse to rave about Amemakura :lol:)
If you’ve played or watched my broadcasts of Kannou mukashi banashi you should be familiar with a 3D dummy head mic recording. Basically the mic looks like a big fugly head and the seiyuu will then spin his head around it speaking in different areas and the mic actually records it that way! This way when you listen to the CDs it’s like the guy is literally behind you whispering in your ear ＜●＞＜●＞ﾊｧﾊｧ. The trend is catching on with games like Diabolik Lovers that will also feature the dummy head mic as it is originally based off the drama CDs.
Now normally I’m like whatever drama CDs but my eyes caught this Amemakura thing where they basically have the sound of rain in the background with the dude whispering in the foreground. Perfect! I always liked to fall asleep to rain now I can have guys with sexy voices on top of it! 😆 So I decided to post a clip here from Volume 6 featuring Suzuki Tatsuhisa as Taku, your childhood friend who’s a gadget otaku and has been in love with you forever and ever…but as usual you’re too dense to realize the poor guy’s feelings but he’ll keep trying anyway! ||萌||ョ´∀｀。)萌えぇ～↑
Please put your headphones or earbuds on for maximum quality of this clip!
…but…I’m tired of the childhood friend position.
Aaah…hurry and fall in love with me already.
This way I can hold you and kiss you every day and take special care of you.
Hey, I’ve been hugging you all this time and holding myself back….give me a reward. You don’t mind right?
Kissing your hair is not satisfying enough…
…I want you more and more…I want all of you so much I can’t stand it.
Hey…I think I want a bit more reward…a kiss on this cute forehead…
..and on those white and soft cheeks…
…and then…I really want to take your lips but I’ll just grab another one on the cheek.
I’ll let it go as this today…because I care about you a lot.
I want to wake you up like a prince and his princess but I’ll save that for when you realize my feelings.
When you wake up today…er I mean once again….I will tell you that I love you.
Hey…but please don’t think that I’m just saying it for kicks & giggles. You better be ready.
I’m going to get you before another guy snatches you away. I’ll make you my one and only.
You got it? So I will hit on you as usual today…and someday you’ll fall in love with me, ok?
Hey…I think it’s about time you gave me a yes, don’t you think? I love you this much after all.
Excuse me while I
So yea needless to say after hearing Tattsun a 2nd time via Dummy Head I can say I’m a fan of his dummy head micness and I hope to hear more (◉◞౪◟◉ ). Admittedly I was falling asleep to the other tracks but once I got to this clip my sleep flew away somewhere 😆
If this isn’t intense enough for you, you can always have yanderes screaming in your ear by listening to the Diabolik Lovers CDs. Anyway I can certainly recommend trying these things out if you’re a fan of seiyuus. If you just play otome games for the characters and the voices don’t matter to you then this may not be your thing. For me? I think I’ll attempt to go to bed with it tonight and hope I don’t end up freaking out over track 5 again ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀｀)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､
The good news is Amemakura will be made into a short otome game, kinda like Starry Sky and that’s definitely on my to buy list!
