In a rare occurrence there were no new eroge released this weekend – not a single one. This will be made up for in the final two weeks of the month, as May 23rd and 30th are jam-packed with new high profile titles that we’ll be doing our best to cover as their releases draw near.

Last night’s update also included two new awesome sample CG images to further whet the appetite, along with colorized versions of store-specific “omake” telephone cards. See below for a collage of yet-undisclosed game CG:
