February 18th, 2013
First, the big news that I totally missed because I only read Japanese magazines – Aksys is translating Bakudan Handan!! Yes, the story about the crazy pig terrorist taking hostages in an amusement park. It was fun.
Now from Cool-B and Girl’s Style:
- New R18 game! It’s called Sanzen Sekai Yuugi, and there’s an English subtitle, MultiUniverse Myself – the first two words could be a translation but not really the last one. It’s from the new brand girls*dynamics, and is described as a “heroic space opera”. The writers are from Taishou (?) Mobius Line and Koezaru wa Kurenai Hana. The concept is of a bounty hunter heroine a hundred years in the future, who has to fight to save her parallel self in another world.
- Arcana Famiglia 2!! Not much info, just big splash pages of the guys, and you can tell it’s been at least a couple years – Nova has grown up a lot (10 times hotter), not to mention ELMO! And Dante has hair (I remember when I first saw the flashbacks and was like, “Comfort, WHY did you take Dante’s hair away?” He looks 100 times hotter. I don’t know what retcon they had to do for that, but I’m willing to accept it.
- More info on Hana Saku Manimani, but no seiyuu yet so the post for that will wait.
- Splash page for something called Toki no Kizuna Hanayu Tsuzuri, but it doesn’t say whether it’s a fandisk (it probably is though).
- Norn9 will come out on May 23.
- There’s going to be a starry sky drama CD series, starring with one on April 26, focusing on graduation, and 2 years after graduation.
- Also a 3DS version of starry sky…coming April 25. Remember, the 3DS is region-locked so unless you have a Japanese 3DS this won’t work on it.
- VitaminR teacher intros, similar to the W6 (Waru 6), the seiyuu return from VitaminX.
- In mostly unrelated news, the original guys from Storm Lover will also show up in Storm Lover 2nd – not as love interests though.
- Finally a release date for Tiny Machine Gun! May 30. And apparently there will be lots more info next month, so I’ll try to do a post on it.
- School Wars fandisk coming from Quinrose.
- If anyone reads my tumblr, a long time ago I posted some pics of a campaign for new hires where Kazuki Yone designed two characters for one of the railway companies, Sanriku Tetsudou. I guess it was popular, because they are being turned into a CD! Suzumura Kenichi(blond guy) and Sakurai Takahiko(dark-haired guy) will be the voices. It’s called, of course, Tetsudou Danshi (Railway Men).
