Otome & BL news 20/12

Ever thought to yourself "I wish I could change that character's hair" or "I bet --- would look good in a tuxedo!". New game Custom Drive lets you pick hairstyle and clothes for your bishie of choice! The creators are also holding a contest where you can send in your own designs of what you want your man to wear. The winners will have their designs illustrated and maybe (?) even in the game! You can read more information about the contest on Dengeki Girl's Style website.

ASCII Media Works is creating their first original otome game for PSP, a game called Love is not bound by rules!
The story is about a girl who must get along with the student council members. Promo picture is the one here on the left and judging by the art and characters I think I'll enjoy it very much! It's nice to see a mix up from the usual archetypes and not always having the megane character being the cool-and-serious type.

Just found out yesterday but Cool-B got a calender with all the upcoming otome and yaoi game releases! The list goes as far as August 2012 and got everything from platform to expected price. Add to your bookmarks! Suddenly you realize all those games are really far away...

March 27 is the new release date for Starry Sky ~after winter~. Don't forget to grab the special limited Christmas wallpaper here. Tsukiko looks really cute!

Just found out that the hot policeman from TinyxMachinegun whom I had my eyes on is actually related to Tiny! Her big brother maybe? Looking closer there are a lot of similarities like hair and eye color. I'm not sure just how related they are yet, but they share last name OTL Incest route = No romance

By answering otomates survey about mobage you can get some pretty nice wallpapers from games like Hakuouki,  Hiiro no Kakera and Nise no Chigiri.

I just got my Girl's Style in the mail today, so here are some brand hot news (sorry for the crappy quality, I had to take the photos with an old camera)

 First up is this new game by Otomate. In the corner it says "February 2012" so I'll guess we'll have to wait until then to find out more. The heroine looks extremely badass and I love how her dark design contrast with the big white eagle. The boys at the bottom reminds me of Hakuouki designs, so maybe it's related? I'm incapable of reading the text in the middle, so if anyone can translate I would be very grateful.

Remember the new Sherlock Holmes detective game by Karin? Three (?)  new characters have been revealed starting with Jack The Ripper and two (?) Lupin.Jr.

First profile of Lupin is a blond guy with glasses and hair covering his right eye, making him look very smart and strict. The second profile of Lupin is a guy with backslick and wild hair, open shirt and just oozes of confidence and sex appeal. Are they twins or maybe we got a double-personality thing going on here?

From the new CGs of Miyako it looks like Raikou didn't grew his hair back out! I'm so happy! ( ´∀`) There are seem to be an alternetive universe scenario in the fandisk where all the guys are working at a cafe!

Black Wolves Saga site got updated and more information about the different version have been posted. In the PC game Fiona is captured by the sadistic cat twins Mejojo and Auger Von Garibaldi. Since I'm a big sucker for "true love" I'll be getting the PSP version which focus on wolfboy Rath instead.

TAKUYO have started advertising more for PSP game Kamisama to Koigokoro. I'm not sure if it's related to Shinigami Shojo or not, maybe it's an alternative universe or something similar, because the heroine sure looks alike!

First promo picture for the upcoming Hiiro no kakera anime have been posted. For more updates you can follow the team's own twitter.

Brothers Conflict looks like it will have several interesting systems like choosing how you want to spend the day (and with whom), in what way the heroine react when talking to somebody and there seems to be a lot of heart to fill. Release date is in March next year!

The PSP port of Moujuutsukai to Oujisama~Snow Bride~ recently updated their site. The new game seem to have a lot of new functions and mini games which I'm looking forward to!

For Comiket 81 Nitro+Chiral will release a DRAMAtical Murder-INSTALL BOOK- which contains information about the characters, setting, sketches and artwork.
They will also sell the brand new Lamento Drama CD to celebrate 5 years of catboys~
I'm not sure if this is the offical art or not, but I'm very pleased to see Rai in a ponytail, even if Bardo looks like a hobo in the corner. You can check out more of their goodies for the event here.

That's all for now! Have a nice winter break and Merry Christmas~

For that new game with miko's art, the text says something like "a story of demons in the sengoku era". I think this will be their next Hiiro no Kakera / Hakuouki successor, except they use miko's art (which is gorgeous!) instead of Kazuki Yone's. x3

As for Black Wolves Saga, they didn't say Rath has the true ending. He gets "true love", while the cats get "mad love" lol. I'll be playing both starting from the PC version, because Mejojo-sama is <33

I'm going to wait for Custom Drive because I like to customize characters in games. Same to you, I also don't think Tiny x Machinegun will be about romance because it's Ninomiya Ai!

Been stalking Kamisama to Koigokoro, HnK 3 FD, MIYAKO FD, etc. Too many games that I must think for time needed. Thank you for your info & Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the translation~
Yes the art is absolutely breathtaking! I actually considered trying to cut out the page and put it on my wall as a poster lol
And thanks for the heads up on BWS, I edited the mistake. Mejojo sure looks handsome~

Custom Drive looks very promising indeed. I can't think of any girl who doesn't enjoy a little dress-up from time to time.
I agree with you, next year can't come soon enough!

I'm definitely looking forward to that game with Miko's art for February 2012. While the english community explodes with Hakuouki I can hide in the successor game lol. It looks really interesting though! I wonder who the team is that's doing it.

By the way, Merry Christmas!
