[ERO] Game News: Happoubi Jin, 3D Custom Shoujo, Bullet Butlers crossover, etc.

It’s monthly Tech Gian release time again today (February 21st), and that means a whole boatload of movement on the eroge front – and boy does this month bring some big news! Speaking purely for myself, there’s something here to represent just about all of what I personally enjoy in the eroge universe, from the official site launch of a new game from a favorite artist, to the update of a new platform for fully customizable 3D girls, to an official expansion of the greatest story ever told in eroge – abandoning the hyperbole (and my pants, as I seem to have soiled them in the heat of excitement), here’s a look at the latest news from the pixelated lovemaking world:

[ERO] Game News: new Sano Toshihide designed G.J? title “Majodou” unveiled – UPDATED

As reported earlier, the March ’08 edition of eroge magazine Dengeki Hime went on sale today (January 30th) and includes the exclusive scoop on the latest Sano Toshihide designed [ERO] game from maker G.J?, Majodou (魔女道; lit. “Witch’s Way”). In it the protagonist attends a prep school where one day he discovers that four of his classmates are witches, and is tasked with keeping their identities secret as they vie for the Witch’s World Cup (one is from Japan, one is from the USA, one is from Holland, and one is from Germany). Seems to be riffing on some Harry Potter themes, at first glance… I’ll update this post as soon as I’m home with access to a scanner, and G.J? has promised a site update this evening as well so plenty of visuals should soon be available. Watch this space! Update: Scans of the Dengeki Hime article below:

[ERO] Anime News: new White Bear project features Mogudan, Kino Hitoshi, Maruta designs

Adult media company Mediabank was selling a doujinshi at Comiket 73 (Toranoana mail order page) that featured a short volume of rough sketches from artists Kino Hitoshi, Maruta, and Mogudan, along with a DVD that contained preview material from three eroanime episodes currently in production, one designed by each of the above artists and produced by Mediabank eroanime label White Bear (the full Mediabank eroanime catalog can be found here). Those familiar with White Bear’s work won’t be surprised to hear that fidelity to the artists’ original designs is questionable, but news that veteran director Yoshi-Ten (of Bible Black fame) will be helming the Mogudan episode makes me optimistic that it will be something worth seeing.
