News Flash: Sei Shoujo not dead

This is one of those wet-my-fanboy-pants moments so pardon if the words don’t come out so well, but according to the official site of eroge magazine Tech Gian, just updated with the contents of the coming issue (due out on April 21st), eroge artist and game designer Sei Shoujo (homepage, Erogamescape) IS NOT DEAD! Work is finally proceeding on Starless, the game project that lay dormant for well over a year now at the bottom of game maker Skunkworks’ product lineup page. The game was repeatedly delayed with no explanation, and Sei Shoujo’s personal site hasn’t been updated since August of 2006, and I’ve been checking both sites weekly in fear that it’ll be announced that he died of a sudden heart attack, or was abducted by aliens, or exorcised, or smothered by a gang of nymphomaniac schoolgirls.

Interestingly the new game is not being credited to Skunkworks but rather to Empress, the brand where he released his last game Cleavage before going AWOL. Little else can be divined from the single image present on the Tech Gian page, but we do know that he’s helming all aspects of the production (art, direction, and scenario), and that we can expect another “immoral story” in the mold of Bible Black and Discipline. We’ll be watching very closely for further details on this project… Tech Gian announcement image reproduced below:

Eromanga Toshokan vol. 009: Nyuuseihin

The Eromanga Toshokan returns after a long hiatus to bring a look at the most recent volume from veteran eromanga and doujin author Shijima Yukio. Long time fans of the very generously endowed female persuasion have likely come across his work in the past, especially back in the early days when his was one of the sites that could be depended on for the occasional delicious update; while his site has remained largely stagnant in recent years he still produces regular eromanga chapters and the occasional doujinshi, and so it is with pleasure that we delve into this, his most recent offering. Note: this is a hardcore [ERO] book. If you’re under 18 or not interested in hardcore content this post is not for you. If this condition does not apply to you, by all means read on!

To Love-Ru Metamo Lala and Haruna announced

The official site for currently airing Shounen Jump-serialized manga and romantic comedy anime To Love-Ru updated its figure section yesterday with the news that Bandai will be producing a pair of “Metamo Figures” based on the franchise’s two main heroines, Lala Satalin Deviluke and Sairenji Haruna. Both are depicted wearing black bikinis that change color to white when exposed to temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, and revert to black when lowered below 16 degrees (Bandai’s “Metamo” gimmick at work). Both are scheduled for release in August at 5,040 yen and 1/8 scale. Sculptor information is currently unknown; prototype images from the site can be found below:

Griffon presents Maaryan-senpai (school swimsuit uniform ver.)

Figure maker Griffon updated yesterday evening with a listing for a new PVC incarnation of Maaryan-senpai from Aquaplus bishoujo game franchise To Heart 2. This “sukumizu seifuku” version is scheduled to retail in August at 6,720 yen, 1/7 scale (23 cm tall) with a sculpt from Morikawa Hiroaki and comes with (presumably) detachable skirt and a discarded pair of panties. Preorders are currently open at Griffon’s site and will be elsewhere soon as well, presumably. Kit images below:

Kotobukiya’s Nekomiya Nono, in color

We brought you a first look at this PVC figure back in March, and yesterday evening Kotobukiya updated once again with pictures of their cat-eared, school-swimsuited Nekomiya Nono prototype, now in color. Nono is the heroine of Hi-Quo Soft’s eroge Yotsunoha as well as the recently released all-ages OVA by the same name (Japanese Wikipedia). As reported earlier, the kit is scheduled to retail in August at 1/6 scale (just over 20 cm tall); sculptor and price information are currently unknown. This is one of the cutest kits I’ve seen in awhile, and I’m guessing Kotobukiya will have a real winner on their hands here… We’ll be keeping an eye out for preorder information. Image below:
