Preorder open for Hanaharu adult manga compilation “Shoujo Material”

Otaku goods shop Toranoana posted a preorder listing today for Naruko Hanaharu‘s first ever eromanga tankoubon, dubbed Shoujo Material. More details have emerged on the volume since we first scooped it back in February: the name (Shoujo Material), the tentative price (1,365 yen), and a release time frame (May 2008) are all present in the preorder listing, along with an image that is likely either the cover or the frontspiece. As most eromanga tankoubon retail for around 1,000 yen, the elevated price indicates that Hanaharu’s book will contain more than the usual number of color pages; It’s not likely that we’ll get any further details on the release before it reaches store shelves, but we’ll be keeping a close eye out for an official street date.

Hobby Complex 03 Tokyo

Hobby Complex 03 Tokyo happened yesterday, and like the best laid plans of mice and men my plan to be in attendance went awry (admittedly it wasn’t very well laid to begin with). My judgment beforehand was that not much of import would occur and I could afford to miss it, and from preliminary reports it seems that was largely the case; Akiba Hobby, Moeyo, and GA Graphic all weigh in with much the same material, most of which we’ve seen in various forms before. Only a few new resin kits were on display, and no new PVC news that I can make out; my only regret was that I missed the chance to pick up this stupendous [ERO] Cattleya resin kit, but I’m probably in the minority there. ^^;; We’ll bring any further news from yesterday’s Hobbycon as it becomes available.
