Otomate has been really slow on their updates recently, so here is a Jyuu-Tan update (・ω<)
B’sLog October 2014!
This issue commemorates their anniversary (20th, was it?) so there was an animate limited edition and I bought that.
Shu cushion has now taken priority over my Magi (Hakuryuu) plushie.
It comes with this postcard if you buy from Animate and some other stores, and I think WonderGoo’s postcard is that of Tsuda Kenjiro.
2) This issue had some pretty interesting lineups, though you can be sure they’re just pretty much teasers at the moment. There was a huge spread on the upcoming dialover Vita games, but I only fixated on Subaru’s next character song CD illustration:
3) Mero, the illustrator of the Happy Sugar series has also illustrated the ‘Iyashi’ series by two characters from the Harukanaru game, with the white haired guy voiced by Terashima Takuma and the hooded guy by Miyata Kouki.
4) This is a mobile game, but the poster was sexy and while I usually refrain from cutting up my mags, this guy just had to go to my wall.
This is not the only poster I have on the wall, and coupled with the Shu cushion, I wonder how my friends are going to react when I let them in over the weekend… (；・∀・)
5) I’ve had enough of Utapri, but Kamiu’s glasses-tux-pouringtea picture was pretty hard to resist.
6) Whatever Meikyu Grim is, there’s a new game coming out about mermaid princess and it doesn’t look half as interesting as Quinrose’s.
7) Reine lives up to our expectations….
By having a release date that’s going to be much later than we expect. Well, at least that means they’re working hard on the game.
It’s Violette’s SS this week, and she speaks of her worries about becoming a good Reine and how she should react to her Knights, who all have pretty strange personalities. Then, some teaser picture of another gorgeous lady whom I suspect is the first Reine.
And they’re like “Buy the next B’slog to find out!” Yeah, thanks.
8) The Honeybee spread
Dynamic chord doesn’t look interesting at all, so let’s skip to Re:/Un:Birthday.
Seems like Yoru has a past with the heroine, and I think this game has a fabulous cast. I wish the heroine was voiced like Ayakashi Gohan, but nevertheless, I think it’ll be a great game. There were also short interviews for Suwabe Junichi and Kondou Takayuki who play Nami and Shun, and they’re advertising the CD versions of this series, along with some comments about their characters.

9) Hosoyana and Konishi in ‘Iyashi’ CDs by Black Butterfly
Office men, sexy voices. Oh yes. December 12 (Hosoyan) / Jan 16 (Konishi), 1620 each, one of the cheaper CDs around…
10) The Otomate spread
Code:Realise is currently the #2 most anticipated game, winning ReineDesFleus at #4 and SenjouWaltz at #5. I agree the art is fabulous, especially with this large CG of Saint trying to choke Cardia. But after so much information about this game, I feel doubtful about how it will play out. The mystery about Cardia’s life isn’t a big deal to me at all, and I’d wait for reviews before I decide if it is worth the money.

KLAP! (Kind Love And Punish)
This is a pretty unique heroine, as she’s 23 years old, and her playable characters are her students. I’m expecting much from this game, with its beautiful BGs and character designs. The characters are mostly Japanese ayakashi, with one Western vampire. I hope the CVs will match well.
I doll you has a pretty ridiculous setting of the heroine pretending to be her twin brother and doing this idol group. I’d call it a filler game.
Psychedelica is another game worth looking at, since it has a voiced heroine. I’m pretty sure this is Otomate’s first voiced heroine apart from Norn9. Don’t be expecting much though, for she is another door-mat with the ‘I can’t say no and have little brains to figure out my situation’ type.
Apart from the 4 playable characters of this escape game, the other two characters wearing masks seem to be interfering with their mission to find the pieces of a kaleidoscope.
It’s a Wilheim focus for this issue’s Waltz！
I’d say Nakamura Yuichi is perfect for Wilheim, and while I know Ran is going to be the major factor I roll my eyes a thousand times, I just love the art and music in this game. The story looks pretty deep too. There’s one month more to its release date and I can hardly wait (๑′ᴗ’๑)
You can read more about Senjou no Waltz here https://jyuuguchi.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/senjou-no-enbukyoku-waltz-official-site-open/
Looks like Last Era is cutting in for 2014, but with Var Commons on the list as well, I hope Last Era makes it within 2014.
I have mixed feelings about Last Era. While I loved the original game, Otomates fandiscs are….. there’s a good chance I’ll end up hating the characters. And since they start on the premise as lovers, there’s not going to be much happening.
My apologies, I can never figure out how to pronounce this. You know, katakana is never accurate when it comes to pronounciations.
It’s a lovely cover, don’t you think? Her eyes sparkle even more on the actual magazine. They claim it’s an all-age game, but the CG looks pretty racy to me, I wonder if that’s alright.
It’s a PC game by 3Daisy (2015 release) with 4 playable characters: 2 are twin werewolves (Ono Yuuki, Ono Kensho -> I’m pretty sure they did this on purpose), vampire (Kakihara Tetsuya AGAIN oh gawd) and the heroine’s brother (Hirakawa Daisuke)
This is Ono Kensho’s character. Its a pretty cute design. I’d say it’s quite dark for an all-age game, it might be interesting to fiddle with if it comes out before other big titles.
12) Otoko Yuuyaku from mobile to Vita
Here comes the full game and a Cd series for the reverse prostitution.
6 characters, and the 2 I’m interested in would be Kagura (Okiayu Ryotarou) and his apprentice Kagerou (Nojima Kenji)
Morikubo Shotarou, Toriumi Kousuke:
Kuroda Takaya, Kakihara Tetsuya
I’d be honest and say that Kakki is driving me nuts and up the wall because he is in every damn game I’m interested in. Here:
–Senjou no Waltz, Mermaid Gothic, Root Rexx, Psychedelica, Otoko Yuuyaku, CodeRea.
Thank goodness Rejet doesn’t use him much. If he is in ReBirthday and KLAP I’d boycott him forever.
13) New Quinrose game
Theme of Genji monogatari. It’d be interesting to see their take on it. Genji is a very well loved story, and I’m sure this game is gonna boom.
-Skips other Quinrose spread-
-Skips teasers for Goes!
14) Taisho Alice(pc)
It was a teeny column, but Taisho Alice is a game based off a mixture of fairytales. The heroines from these fairytales are boys, inclucing cinderella, red riding hood, snow white and Alice in wonderland, and as with Lewis Carroll’s ‘into the looking glass’, the heroine steps past the mirror to see things differently from the Alice in wonderland adventure.
BUT you don’t get to play all characters in one game. The first game has Red riding hood and Cinderella, and has no official release date yet. Strange, but interesting.
R18 game with men of a Noble birth. Hmm….
Pretty good designs for a mobile game.
It’s Tsuda Kenjiro trying to be sexy, but sorry, the only ones who can pull off a lazily-dressed jacket-sleeveless look are Gareki and Matsuoka Rin. 3d men, do not attempt.
Nojima Kenji is releasing an album, and he has a good voice. I first liked his singing in Seventh Heaven.
He is one of those rare seiyuus where I can fix his voice to his face.
That’s all from me folks, it’s Oz to Himitsu’s last CD release date today, and Shinsengumi Hiyokuroku’s first CD release today.
It’s only 8.30pm, but time to snuggle into the futon with headphones on.
