YAY! THE AWAITED DAY! Wow, we have lots this time round. Nevermind that I missed out on the most important part of the Live Event because I was listening to prof talk about how society has changed, and annoyed people with my tweets :p, here’s what I feel about the new projects!
1- Disappointed that we only have one game and it’s a school theme. (That doesn’t mean to say I’m completely uninterested though) Mostly just disappointed that most of them are school-themed because that’s not up my alley.
2- VERY disappointed that Rejet is continuing to milk Margi#4 and Dialovers. Hmph.
3- Interested that we have many new seiyuus!
4- Going mad with excitement that we have a new Teikoku Star series, and Yoshino Hiroyuki is joining in on Lip On!
>>> Sorry for those who like Maeno Tomoaki but I’m glad he’s not anywhere because I’m really sick of seeing him everywhere. Oh, and Kakki too…. Kondo Takashi, Kaji and Midorikawa is as usual everywhere but I’ll avoid them as best as possible. I love supporting newer seiyuus, and here we have Rejet being brave. Good job!
>>>>I watched some of the live singing and some were pretty horrible, because the singers were dancing and singing high notes at the same time. Lasah’s live was disappointing because it sounded nothing like her, but then again, I reckoned she doesn’t have very strong vocals but mellow ones like I do, so moving around and singing at the same time must have been pretty exhausting. Her duet partner though, Yumi, was great! Their song goes to the only game.
Let’s get the ones we (I) don’t care about out of the way first so we don’t have to look at them anymore.
Meh #1- Diabolik mosquitoes new CD release named Bloody Bouquet.
Meh #2- Marginal #4’s junior now, 3 of them. *yawns*
Meh#3- Elements gardenXRejet to produce an animation called Dance with Devils.
Whatever the sweet potatoes this is going to be, No.
Otsukare. Now let’s go to the real thing.
The new projects seem to be going for a Sawayaka breezy feel because we all know, we need our 2D men to get us through summer, and the ones that most fit this theme would be:
1- Moshi, Kono sekai ni Kami-Sama ga iru to suru naraba (PSVITA)
I know. It’s helluva long name. (Translated: If God existed in this world). No doubt, this will release in summer because of the ocean and the water-colour art. The heroine is a high school girl who receives a letter one day from herself dated 7 years ago. She and her harem get caught in a series of events and discover that the current world is slightly strange…….
They say it’s a pure love story, and I’m pretty ambivalent about this game at the moment (It seems to be slightly chomping on Clock Zero) even though I know most Rejet games don’t disappoint. Another brillant song by MIKOTO too! We will have to see updates for this game. But well, PSVITA it is. Looks like those still on PSP have to take a jump to this side! (・∀・)
2- Love☆Don!!☆Quixote: CD
The song is catchy and we have the heroine who enrols into high school named St. Don Quixote, and the student council are a bunch of ikemens who Kabe-Don you (it’s the situation where your back is against a wall and he prevents you from escaping). Slightly titilating Cd for sure, and I see Yonaga Tsubasa’s name! Woots!
As for what I think about it’s contents, fanservice, no doubt, but Yonaga’s copy might be worth a second-hand. :p
3- Chou Micchaku! Yuu Gen Romantica: CD
What else do we do apart from Summer festivals and eating gari-gari kun in summer? We tell GHOST STORIES (kaidanbanashi) to cool down. Here is another original idea by Rejet, and the school 限定 setting lends a child-like innocence to those courage-testing walks we were forced or peer-pressured to go on. I had always been an uncute child though. I always ended up laughing at the props or monsters.
Nevermind me. The seven wonders of your school, who are all some kind of youkai/ayakashi/obake like Orochi, the ghost in the toilet, cat and dog gods and a Tengu…. they possess you! I’m sure it’s going to be comedic and pretty fun!
Another catchy wafuu song here with a slight 60s stage feel. Tops!!!
4- Zenryoku shounen-tachi no O-uta & Toriai: CD
Some heroine is resigned to her boring school life and sees boys living their youth out. This is probably some club+band thingy though I can’t really tell from the PV. It seems to be something resembling a Honeybee creation so I’m iffy about this even though I want to support the numerous new seiyuus. We shall see.
———– ‘darker’ themes ————-
5- Lacrimosa – The seven sins (love): CD
This one is the one I’m most interested in so far. The Kingdom of Tudor has been called ‘Paradise on Earth’ and (you) the princess is living happily without want, but one day a strange bird leads you into a forbidden tower…. and seven beautiful knights are locked there. Their seals come undone all of a sudden, and what happens on the day of tears? (Lacrimosa)
Rejet promises to deliver a ‘Merry bad ending’ to you. Knights. Check. Interesting storyline. Check. Tragedy. Check. Art is not too bad. Check. Kishio Dai, Nojima Kenji, Nakai Kazuya, CHECK!!! And Kaida Yuki?! Female seiyuu for the sin of Lasciviousness and it’s going to be complicated but CHECK!!! And yes, I’m in!
They used Lacrimosa (in the subtitles), part of Dies Illa requiem, and I have always loved this prayer ever since I watched D.Grayman. Sorry for being off-topic but it’s a beautiful requiem!
—– Remakes + ——-
6- Taishou Guuzou Roman, Teikoku Star Cinematograph
YESSSSSSSSSSS ヽ(*´∀｀)ノ ｷｬｯﾎｰｲ!! I’m glad I bought the whole of the first series. Well, call it a fandisc if you want. We have 6 of them now (the latest one being voiced by Toriumi Kousuke and I feel he’s going to be a phantom of the opera of sorts) After the earthquake, this is about their memories in the capital that is slowly rebuilt. The boys have new clothes and softer expressions, so they’re probably not going to be too mean this time round! :p
I already know I’m going to preorder Isao and Fuji like NOW.
More here: Coming soon!
7- Motto! Lip On
Yay more Tomoe and Norio!~~~~
The boys have grown up a little, as with Teikoku Star and it’s a situation of living together.
I don’t particularly care for Shimono Hiro but Yoshino Hiroyuki is joining in as a Onii-san type Prince! (*´ω｀*) Lip on wasn’t fantastic and I only bought 1 CD from the previous series but I’m interested in the grey-haired guy. He’s going to be…… sexy.
I was kind of hoping for a Soubou Sangoku release as well but oh well…..
The only one with a double-CD is Lacrimosa, even TeiStar’s ‘fandisc’ will be a single disc. Check out Animate online and Tower Records for Tokuten CDs though!
Seems like it’s going to be a fun year, though it means more Baito to earn those bucks to buy my 2d men. Don’t judge me. (・∀・)
