Alright so since a few of you guys were interested I’m compiling some news bits from the magazines + around the web.
- Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi has been green lit for an anime. ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ァﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼ I can only think about the BLACK ends not the GOLD ends. Though sources do say it will be an OVA which is just like taking any eroge and releasing some porno anime to go with it.
- Rejet announced a new game called Ken ga Kimi. More 和風 stuff but the art looks lovely.
- Takuyo’s jumping on the 和風 bandwagon as well with their new game Moonlight Chains. Takuyo’s pretty good at handling that sort of thing and it’s the same artist as Kaeru Batake (though she leveled up over 9000 since that game.)
- Karin finally stopped shitting around (and ignoring their otome game line) and has started working on their Mysteria game which they announced almost a year ago. As with all Karin games, the heroine will be voiced.
- Brother’s Conflict will be turned into a TV Anime. No confirmation on which studio is doing it. Hopefully not Deen or JC Staff. (JC Staff seems extremely likely though.)
- Prince of Stride has (finally?) been confirmed for an otome game (based on a novel.) Scenario is being written by the guy who wrote Valkyria Chronicles and Scared Rider Xechs. The cast has also been revealed. (Nice to see Kimura Ryohei doing more otome games lately!)
- Amnesia Crowd website is officially open. Everyone has decent clothing for once.
- Otomate’s new Kiramune collaboration game is called Koibana Days. All I know is Kakki will be in it so I’m interested by default.
- Quin Rose’s newest game is another one out of the Kaidan Romance series (I think they are taking this a bit too far now…). The title is Shinigami Kagyou ~Kaidan Romance~ where as you can guess, everyone is a shinigami. Same type of school setting as Ouma & Hyakki.
- The cast for one of Takuyo’s new games (Rakuen Danshi) has been revealed. This game will feature Midorikawa Hikaru, Sugiyama Noriaki, Maeno Tomoaki, Hoshi Souichiro, Mizushima Takahiro, Shimono Hiro and Majima Junji.
- A bunch of the otome game makers are getting ready for Animate Girls Festival. I’m sitting here on the other side of the world crying a river because all my favorite makers are bringing all these goodies from games I like. (Peterrrrr ( ；∀；))
- I’ve been pretty much ignoring Utapri news after Debut but I just had to LOL at this tagline. “You will…kiss on him.” Wait I thought the translation is “You might…kiss him.” We’re gonna kiss on him? Sit on top of him and kiss him? Oh Broccoli you so randy! The package illustration is pretty nice though I will admit. Too bad I have 0 interest in the game since they’d have to make all the senpai’s personality warped & out of character to actually take romantic interest in Haruka.
Anyway that’s all I have for this month. If I find anything else I’ll add it on but I think this pretty much covers any new release information.
