This year's otome visual novel game Brothers Conflict
is getting a fittingly girlie TV anime series, accoring to a cover note
from the latest issue of Sylph magazine (via MAL
). There are no details about the anime adaptation, for the time being. The game was developed by Idea Factory for the PSP, based on an illustrated novel series, and its official website
should give you a feel for what to expect from the anime.
The game's story follows Ema, a girl whose mother remarried and so she moved into the Asahina Family House, ending up with 11 "brothers". (...) Continue reading 'Brothers Conflict Otome Game Gets TV Anime'...
Some solid piece of Evangelion news, at last! Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's sci-fi mecha manga series Neon Genesis Evangelion
will have its 13th volume released on November 2, 2012, publisher Kadokawa Shoten has announced
. This may or may not be
the manga's final volume... Meanwhile, Evangelion 3.0
is still vaguely planned for this fall.
The last month also brought a slew of utterly useless Eva "news", invovling everything from GPS systems
, to inflatable ponies
, razor stands
, guide dogs
and (...) Continue reading 'Checkpoint: Evangelion, Persona 4, Kenshin PSP'...
Ask not what the criteria behind this "top 10" is: truth be told, these simply happen to be the 10 eroge that were already listed in the local games database for an April 27 release. However, they are certainly among the most promising titles - out of the many others
- releasing today in Japan, including the highly anticipated sequel D.C. III: Da Capo III
, the highly lolicious Monobeno
, or the highly delayed Shiny Days
Other than slipping a personal note about my sleazy interest in Monobeno, more so than in any of the other titles, I wouldn't really anticiapte a solid ranking for this eroge lot. So I'll just list them in alphabetical order and invite you to inspect each of them (...) Continue reading 'Today's Top 10 Hentai Games Releases'...
The PlayStation 3 version of Examu's cross-over fighting game Aquapazza
has suffered a one month delay, from June 28 as previously announced, to July 26. No reason for the delay was given by publisher Aquaplus, whose various franchises (including ToHeart
, Tears to Tiara
, and Utawarerumono
) are lending their characters to this game.
Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match, as it's fully titled, was first released for the arcades in Japan in June 2011. Check out the game's local trailers
to see it in action.
Since today is shaping up to be a pretty slow news day, and I see no leftover anime news from the weekend, let's take a small detour into the titillating world of eroge / hentai games. The one major problem with this kind of games - and with visual novels of all age ratings, for that matter - as far as Western otaku are concerned, is their lack of availability in English. But the times are changing, and they're changing fast!
As with anime and manga, the easiest way to make hentai games available in English is, arguably, through fan translations. But unlike anime, for which fansubs can be released in just a matter of days, the classic method of translating eroge is a lot more complicated (...)
