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 (...)

The Accel World franchise is expanding with yet another project: an Accel World OVA - a proper one, not to be confused with the Actual World shorts that will be bundled on each Blu-ray and DVD volume from the ongoing TV anime's home video release.

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.

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!

'&' - Sora no Mukou de Sakimasu you ni screenshot

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 (...)
