Ichigo Mashimaro ep. 1 airs, Gunparade Orchestra official anime site launches, Kuro Shinobu figure news, eroge sample CG updates, Goodsmile Tenma and Tessa on sale today, etc. etc.
The first episode of Ichigo Mashimaro aired last night, and all I got was this lousy (nonexistent) t-shirt. Will watch after work.
- Alchemist posts a rundown of the items it will have for sale at its C68 industry booth, Binchou-tan fans rejoice.
- Broccoli will have some bishoujo bath towels for sale at its booth as well.
- The official Gunparade Orchestra anime site launches. These designs don’t do much for me at this point, but we’ll see where things go.
- Aniplex updates its Loon Moon site with story, staff/cast, and character information. The GPO designs look like works of staggering genius by comparison.
- Excerpts from the upcoming Marimite ~Haru~ image album vol. 2 are online, courtesy of Animate.tv.
- Sample CG updates: Clockup’s Kuro no Utahime (click through the character profiles), Petit Cherry’s Tonari no Maoutsukai, Petit Cherry’s Reijoukari, Studio Mebius’ The God of Death.
- Ail Soft puts a couple of its older titles up for sale via download. Currently available: Nurse Nikutai Kaizou Karte and Kyouhaku ~Owaranai Myounichi~.
- In eroanime news, Discovery has sample video up for its July 29th release of Yakin Byoutou San vol. 1.
- [NOT ERO] A series of what SCEJ is calling “yarudora” games is coming out for the PSP, all ports of earlier Playstation titles. A couple of them are looking interesting, especially the Gotoh-designed Double Cast.
- The release of Giga’s Duel Savior Justice has been delayed to July 29th.
- The Iroppoi Figure Blog reports that the Kuro Shinobu version of Kotobukiya’s Shinobu figure will be available for sale at this summer’s Wonder Festival; it doesn’t specify whether in PVC or resin. Here’s hoping for the former.
- On sale today: Goodsmile’s swimsuit Tessa PVC from Full Metal Panic!, Goodsmile’s Tenma PVC from School Rumble. They look even better in the shots on yotsuba… accursed creator of heavenly creatures, why must you tempt me so? Also: remember the Fate/stay night Sakura, Rider and Saber swimsuit resin kits from Kotobukiya first scooped at the Shizuoka Hobby Festival? They’re here. [Sakura] [Rider] [Saber]
