  • A long explanation and apology for the release delay of FlyingShine’s Jokyoushi was posted to the game’s official site yesterday. According to the post, the game was initially slated to be a plotless ero-fest and the release date (December 22nd) was decided on accordingly. After recieving input from fans and retail store contacts, though, the scenario writer decided to overhaul the story entirely. While the rest of the game’s production is basically on track (i.e. almost complete by now) it will be awhile yet before the new story is finished. The writer hastens to reassure us that the game will eventually see a release, and that scoops will gradually be appearing on the site and in eroge magazines.

    Why is this news? It’s not, really, but I can’t help but be fascinated by the occasional glimpse into the inner workings of the eroge production machine.

  • [ERO] Gigapulse has announced that its seventh PVC release, set to come out in summer 2006, will be based on TinkerBell’s Inyoumushi. I might be more excited about this if Gigapulse didn’t have such a track record of overpriced, low quality figures.
  • Ojou-san BANZAI!! Polygonia recieved the second release candidate of Wafudou’s Yayoi PVC on December 7th, and he’s given it his stamp of approval. Along with that approval the item has been released into the wild, appearing on display at Yamagiwa Soft yesterday (scoop courtesy of Akibajin, as usual).

Work proceeds apace on the second installment of How to Comiket, with the main text fully written. A bit of editing, a few graphics and we’ll be ready to roll, probably by early this weekend. I’ll try to get it out before Saturday’s Akiba catalog trip.
