Today’s Updates

More news below, including word on a new Hanaharu manga in Dengeki Daioh as well as the resumption of work on a long-dormant Taka Tony eroge:

Media News EXTEND

  • Daioh’s renewal begins with the magazine’s release this month sporting a new expanded format, lower price, and a bunch of new material that will begin rolling out with the August ’08 issue on sale in June, at which time the monthly release date will switch from the 21st to the 27th of each month. Other new titles include a Tetsudou Musume manga adaptation as well as manga of Aquaplus game White Album.

Ero News

Continuing from this evening’s Moon Phase Diary post, below info presumably gathered from an early release copy of this month’s Tech Gian:

  • Eroge maker CODEPINK has two new projects in the works, both illustrated by Kiriyama Taichi: one called Sumeragi Ryouko no Bitch na Ichinichi, scheduled for release on October 31st. Chronicles the adventures in a day in the life of a nymphomaniac teacher. The second is Sexfriend 2, a spiritual sequel to the original Sexfriend that features new characters and a SLG ero system similar to the one in the first game. This is due out in 2009.
  • In other news from the Stoneheads collective it seems the Pil brand is once again moving after a very long silence, and that we can expect to see movement on their Taka Tony-designed France Shoujo ~La Fille Blanc~ soon. It’s been almost two years since the game was announced and I thought it was dead in the water, glad to see some stirrings here to the contrary.

We’ll bring more from this month’s Tech Gian when I can manage to score a copy, likely on the 21st.

Tony’s back with a brand new invention

I’m in the process of renewing the figure release schedule. Still messing around with the format, but I think the new concept is basically sound; will make a note of it here again when the page is fully live.
