Kotobukiya’s Suzume, Kamikita Komari preorders open

Kotobukiya updated its official site earlier today with listings for two new figures that we initially reported on last month: Suzume from Alice Soft eroge Sengoku Rance, and Kamikita Komari from Key’s Little Busters!. Suzume is scheduled for release in July at 1/8 scale (17 cm tall) and 5,775 yen, with a sculpt from Kajio Munetoshi. Knowing Kotobukiya’s track record it’s likely she’s not meant to be cast off, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for further sample images. Kamikita Komari is also due out in July at 5,775 yen and 1/8 scale (10 cm tall), with a sculpt from Takaku & Takeshi. She comes with an exchangeable twinkly-eyed face part, and heat sensitive color changing panties (according to the product description, no visual evidence yet). Images below:

Key’s “Rewrite” not a hoax

It’s the morning after April Fool’s day, and in the process of sorting out fact from yesterday’s fiction the first thing that stands out is that Key‘s announcement of their next title, Rewrite, remains unchanged. Given the combination of Tanaka Romeo (Yume Miru Kusuri, Cross Channel, Kana ~ Imouto [supposed], Kazoku Keikaku [supposed]) and Ryukishi07 (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) on scenario duty I thought it was an unlikely project, but it seems they will in fact be collaborating to bring the next Key game to life – which means an exciting new era for the game maker who has seen most of the original writing talent that produced Kanon and Air move away in past years. My fondness for Romeo makes me curious, but the character design makes me want to retch… what to do… we’ll probably drop in on this from time to time in the future, but there are much better resources for news on this sort of thing – there’s already a Wikipedia article, for crying out loud. The Key fandom, it is insane. (no more)

[ERO] Game News: 18+ version of Key’s Little Busters announced

This one came out of left field, via Moon Phase diary: a promotional image for Toy’sworks’ recently preorder-open Noumi Kudoryafuka (Kudryavka) figure mentions almost in passing that Little Busters! is scheduled to receive release in a new adult version. At present there is no information beyond this image, but this sounds like weighty news indeed for the Key fans… we’ll keep half an eye on this story should anything else of interest appear. (no more)
