Eromanga Toshokan vol. 008: Chichi Kano

In our Eromanga Toshokan segment we strive to bring a broad range of creators and styles to the attention of fans, from the mainstream to those that attract a more niche audience. Today’s entry is definitely one of the latter, the first collection of serial work from veteran doujin artist HG Chagawa. His style is both distinctive and extreme, and as such this review is not recommended for those not interested in abnormal depictions of the human body. Let me reiterate: you probably don’t want to read beyond this point unless you are intrigued by the concept of breasts the size of a full human torso. 18+ ONLY, NWS.

[ERO] Game News: all-ages manga Shureishi to recieve adult game adaptation

Moon Phase Diary reports that Shureishi, a manga currently serialized in Comic Gum (preview here), is scheduled to receive an eroge adaptation. While there have been plenty of adult game to all-ages manga conversions in the past, to my knowledge this is the first example of the opposite occurring. That fact alone is worth a bit for its trivia value, but what really has me excited about the project is the fact that mangaka Ryuu Mokunen will be handling the game designs as well. He draws some of the most purely erotic doujinshi I have ever seen, and I discovered him just in time to pick up a couple of his books in ’05-’06 before his doujin activity stopped (presumably to start work on this manga) so it’s great to know that he’s coming back to the world of adult illustration. The scenario will be penned not by manga author Takaoka Yoshiaki but instead by veteran galge writer Futaba Akira, and the game is set for release in early summer of 2008. We’ll be keeping watch for further details as the project unfolds. (no more)

Figure Review: Kotobukiya’s Clalaclan Philias PVC from Shining Wind

As a casual fan of artist Taka Tony’s work I’ve been keeping an eye on the flood of figures from the Shining game series that have seen release over the past couple of years, but when this Clalaclan was announced she was the first that really grabbed my whole attention. Sure the pointy tiara puts the Statue of Liberty to shame, and her hair looks like the pelt of some ancient Roman lion as envisioned by a monk calligrapher in the Dark Ages, but the winsome Tony face and the ample expanse of bosom put to rest all doubts in my mind – this was a figure that must be acquired, and the finished product is even better than I had hoped. Read on for the highly photogenic details:

Figure News: Movic’s Sekirei Tsukiumi, Yamashita Shunya Cocona now on sale

Just a quick heads up that Movic’s [ERO] Tsukiumi PVC figure from Sekirei [Play Asia] and their original Yamashita Shunya designed Cocona figure [Play Asia] [J-List] both shipped to retailers yesterday. Mine should be coming in tonight and I’ll be reviewing them here in the next day or two (still working on Clalaclan and Fasalina), but those waffling on the purchase might want to act fast, as I’m guessing Tsukiumi especially will be gone from shelves with alarming speed. You can help HD out by ordering from the links above should you so desire~. (no more)
