Eromanga Toshokan vol. 001: Giri Giri Sisters

Eromanga Toshokan is a brand new column here at HD, launched in our continuing effort to expose just how much of a sicko Shingo is fans to an oft-downloaded but seldom deeply probed segment of Japan’s visual culture: the wild world of eromanga (no, not the Australian town). For our first entry we bring you a review of the recently released Giri Giri Sisters, the second tankoubon from doujin veteran Kisaragi Gunma. Note: this post is 18+ only and not safe for perusal at work.

[ERO] Figure News: Orchid Seed’s Chichinoe+2 Young Hip Cover Gal to be pliantly busted

Moeyo! Akibajin Blog posted a PVC sample review of Orchid Seed’s Inoue Takuya designed, Ishiyama Satoshi sculpted Chichinoe+2 Young Hip Cover Gal yesterday that reveals the cause of its release delay from July to later this month: they’ve retrofitted her with an extra interchangeable chest part that visual evidence clearly shows to be taking advantage of recent technological advancements in squeezable PVC engineering. Akiba Hobby has a glimpse up as well, which while also censored is slightly more revealing… She’s scheduled for release by the end of September at 6,800 retail and 1/6 scale (25 cm tall); if you’re interested in picking her up you can support HD by preordering at YesAsia, or go the cheaper route with HLJ.

Goods News: Maria-sama ga Miteru Cherry Blossom drama CD up for preorder

Shueisha, publisher of the Marimite novels, has posted a listing for the latest installment in their Marimite drama CD series entitled Maria-sama ga Miteru Cherry Blossom. It’s a two disc set scheduled to go on sale December 14th at 3,990 yen, and features Yumi, Sachiko, Sei, Yoshino, Rei, Shimako, Noriko, and Touko; I was thinking this release might be used as a bridge to the fourth anime season, but with the announced character lineup this seems unlikely. We’ll be looking for more news on the 4th season as it emerges. (no more)

[ERO] Game News: Dream Party Tokyo 2007 Fall dealers list announced

Dream Party, the biggest regular gathering of eroge makers outside Comiket‘s industry section, will be convening for its Tokyo fall iteration this year on October 14th, and the event’s official site has just posted a list of makers and vendors registered to participate. As I found on my visit to the event last spring it’s mostly a fund raiser for the makers to squeeze additional revenue out of character goods; pending further information I’ll probably give this one a miss, but we’ll keep an eye out for any news from the event as it approaches.
