March 1st, 2013
I didn’t get B’s Log till today, so this is probably late, but hey, better late than yada yada.
- Diabolik Lovers has a bunch of announcements:
- Fandisk!! In 2013 apparently. It will include the new characters, the Mukami brothers, who are rivals to the current guys (whose family name I can’t remember how to spell)
- TV anime coming (we heard about this before), no date in the magazine.
- New series of drama CDs – More, Blood – coming monthly starting April for 10 months straight
- Character songs released starting in June
- Monthly radio show on NicoNico starting April, hosted by Midorikawa Hikaru (Ayato)
Oh, the Mukami brothers are: Ruki (CV: Sakurai Takahiro), Kou (CV: Kimura Ryohei), Yuuma (CV: Suzuki Tatsuhisa), and Azusa (CV: Kishio Daisuke). Pic on my tumblr.
- Seishun Hajimemashita! is going to come on 2 discs, 3 if you get the first edition! Cool.
- Amnesia Crowd will have minigames! Also, if you can order the DX pack from Enterbrain, it comes with a tapestry (about 20×28 inches)
- In Storm Lover 2nd, your choices can change the heroine’s character into either a ‘肉食系’ (meat-eater) or ’草食系’ （vegetarian) – kind of like having a dominant or submissive personality. They show examples for each guy, and I pretty much preferred the 肉食系 reactions for them all, mwahaha. Also, Takashi is in this game as owning a cafe.
- DID YOU KNOW that apparently Geten no Hana will be full-voice?? I didn’t, and it’s not in B’s Log – the source is apparently Neoromance’s e-mail newsletter (I found out from @Mai_Shinozawa, thank you!). I still haven’t seen it announced anywhere, but I’m going to buy the game if it’s true.
- Another Alice in the Land of Diamonds – this one is called Wonderful Mirror World, and the routes are different – buy this one if you want to get Ace, Nightmare, Boris, Grey, or Julius.
- Fandisk for Hiiro no Kakera 4(5) Shirahana no Ori – it’s called Poem (or Song) of Four Seasons
- Hanasaku Manimani will be for the PS3 as well as the PSP!
- Shiratsuyu no Aya will be released on June 27
In magazine news, B’s Log is starting a bimonthly special edition called B’s Log Primo in April, with all original content such as special illustrations, short stories, and interviews – of course all relating to otome games.
And in cell phone news, I got a Nexus 4 and gee, there seem to be a lot more otome-ish apps available, even if they’re still in Japanese. I was able to download all the Soine Kareshi (in English it’s Sleepy-Time Boyfriend), as well as Seifuku no Oji-sama, which at first launch seems really nice! I’m thinking of doing a cell phone game roundup, since there are now a bunch of apps/games that I think otoge fans would be interested in, and even some with English translations.
And I scanned some pics of Arcana Famiglia 2 from Girl’s Style, they’re not great but they show the difference in chara designs.
Dante! (avec cheveux)
And finally, Nova. (Now I remember why I didn’t post these, I took them with a camera and they’re ENORMOUS.)
Next post will be about Chromatic Press!
