The girl god of death is coming to steal your soul, and you’re going to like it. Also: Rakugo Tennyo Oyui designs, some scoops from the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, a bunch of eroge news and a couple of figure updates from the Palm Characters/Scenery department.

Anime Side

  • Mediaworks unleashes a double threat today in the form of pre-opened official sites for this winter’s Shinigami no Ballad and Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora. I’m liking the look of the former especially; any show subtitled “the girl god of death” is sure to get my attention.
  • Some character designs from this fall’s upcoming Rakugo Tennyo Oyui can be found here.
  • [NOT ANIME] With August’s batch of events safely concluded, the press is moving on to next weekend’s Tokyo Game Show. Those in attendance will be treated to a stage event from the Kimi Kiss and To Heart 2 voice actors, a bunch of random Cospa gear (Tama-nee towel :3), and a preview of eleven next-gen console games (seven of them currently announced).

Ero Side

  • This week’s Galkko feature is Squeez’s Homura no Haramase Tenkousei, slated for a September 22nd release. Be sure to check out the sample CG while you’re there – this looks like a good one to play “hunt the torso” with.
  • A trial version of Delta’s September 22nd release of Megari is now available for download.
  • Marmalade opens the official site for its upcoming Miraroma, subtitled “Miracle Romance Strawberry Scramble.” Looks like the cast includes a little sister, a nun, a miko priestess, an older sister/teacher, and a witch, covering quite a few of the bases there.
  • FlyingShine’s Yumemi-gaoka has a few new sample CG images online in anticipation of its September 16th release.
  • Get your Meishoku no Reiki wallpapers from Eushully here.
  • Today’s Game Style updates include Leaf’s Kusari, Lilim / H.W.Lab’s Aozora Enikki, and Teatime’s Futamajo.
  • The Adult Game Guide scoops the October 21st release of Windmill’s Happiness!.
  • MarryBell updates its Akuratsu page with some sample event CG, slated for October 14th and 21st releases for the download and package versions respectively.
  • If you’re fortunate enough to have picked up your copy of Oshioki Sweetie already, Hadashi Shoujo has made a patch with an omake ero scene available for download from the game’s official website.
  • scoops the three eroge titles on sale this Friday, September 9th.
  • I’m hoping this month’s budget will allow me to hoof it down to Toranoana for this item from circle Gadget Koubou.
  • Two release postponements announced today, one from Terios shunting Yatohime from September 30th to November 25th, and one from Rune bumping Shishunki back a week to September 29th.

Figure Side

  • Fox Publishing scoops its release of a set of Suigetsu Palm Characters in November, and Suigetsu Palm Scenery in December. Looking at pictures of the two side by side gives a pretty good indication of the artistic difference between the product lines.
  • The activity currently going on in the Maritan diary is apparently documentation of publicity for the September 10th release of a Maritan anthology comic. More on this as information comes to light.

Still working on the eroge article mentioned yesterday; it’s shaping up pretty well and should be posted some time today. Otanoshimi ni. Or not. Also, forums.
