In today’s update: Demonbane benchmarks, Planetarian movies, Gift animes, Witchblade gravures, Stringendo episode twos, Kurushima resin kits, Sakura Taisen Pinky Streets, elf girls, School Rumble bookends, and the two peaks of Kilimanjaro.
- Want to see how your machine stacks up against the new Demonbane 3D Robot Dramatic ACT? The benchmark is here.
- The special package rerelease of Key’s Planetarian now has a demo movie available for download, courtesy of RSK.
- The current issue of Comptiq announces that Gift is set to recieve the animated treatment. …what’s that, a pin dropping? Crickets? Hard to make out…
- Ruike Asuka is a gravure idol. Now, she is also Witchblade (she has a blog post about it, too). I’m not sure exactly what to make of this, but if you’re going to get a gravure idol to represent your heroine, why not go the whole nine yards?
- Not one to rest on their laurels, eroge maker Juliette launches their second title Natsuiro Kouen hot on the heels of Goshujin-sama he‘s release.
- Sample CG updates are online for Inda no Himekishi Janne, FlyingShine’s Inaho no Mirai, and U・Me Soft’s Shimai Souzoku (tracts of land alert on the latter).
- In eroanime news, Galge.com scoops the April 28th release of the second episode of Pink Pineapple’s Stringendo OVA.
- We haven’t seen Maritan in awhile here, but she’s still updating as usual… a sakura-themed Jie-tan currently graces the front of the site.
- Kurushima announces a pair of well-endowed resin kits due out at the end of May: an aerobics Renki kit from the “Yasumi-chan series”, whatever that is, and a swimsuit Najika from Najika Blitz Tactics.
- Shinguji Sakura (from Sakura Taisen) Pinky St. ahoy! She’s due out in late May.
- Out in late June from Toys Planning is this Elf Girl (deep ver.) PVC, complete with removable tunic.
- School Rumble bookends. From Movic. In June. This is a really cool idea if you ask me, and at that price point it seems they’ll be high enough quality to not look tacky on your shelf. At least, no more tacky than the rest of your figure collection.
