In today’s update: the Japan Times pans Agito, the usual Saturday morning deluge of ero updates, Bome Eclair & Lumiere PVC release, Evangeline A.K. McDowell figure in May, and other miscellany.
- The usual suspects are reporting that the PS2 version of Fate / stay night will be produced by Kadokawa Shoten, the company that publishes Newtype, Shonen Ace (in which the Fate manga is currently serialized), and Comptiq (where the game’s PS2 version was first announced). For an example of what Kadokawa is currently up to on the ADV scene check out Fragments Blue, set for a January 19th release.
- Anime Site Updates
- An official site is online for Gradius Portable. Eventually something will come out that vindicates the purchase of that fancy hunk of electronics…
- If ANN can cite HD (thanks hannibal), I can certainly cite ANN: the Japan Times has a review online of Gin-iro no Kami no Agito, giving it two and a half stars out of five. I’ve disagreed with Mark Schilling’s reviews before (I seem to recall him panning Spider Man), but now I’m even more curious to see it than ever. If he thinks the digital compositing in Agito is bad he should check out Bakuretsu Tenshi. -_-
- Tenma(?) and Harima are introduced in the latest update of Marine’s Oshikake Scramble.
- Three of Under Lip‘s previously download-only titles will be released in package versions on February 24th.
- Galge.com has a report on the C69 industry booth scene online. And another.
- In eroanime news, Vanilla has an official page up for its March 10th release of Shojo Auction vol. 2, and another batch of stills from Toumei Ningen vol. 1, due out on February 10th.

The camera I ordered came in yesterday night, but without the puny (32MB) memory card I assumed was standard on all models. Not the Japan release, apparently. It seems another trip to the local Yamada Denki is called for…
To do for this weekend: manga reviews, figure reviews, and the year in eroge. Who knows how much of that will happen. ;;
