Otome & BL news 1/3

I'm sure none of you have missed it, but yet another otome game is going to be turned into anime this year! The newly announced is Hanayaka Nari, Waga Ichizoku. I'm not sure which studio will be doing the adaption, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and planning to play the game before the show airs.

Popular STORM LOVER is getting a remake for PSP called STORM LOVER-Kai-.

Custom Drive does not only feature the opportunity to change hairstyle/clothes of your bishie of choice, you can also change personality. This was personally a big turn-off for me since it means the character ends up being a pretty empty shell that acts the way you want them to, instead of well...actually being a characters.(ಠ_ಠ) 

QuinRose releasing yet another game, this one is called Grimm-Bounty Hunter-. 

Kiriya Takashi, famous for her artwork in Death Connection and Musketeer is working with Otomate on a new game called Confidential Money. Looks very interesting!

 Don't forget to go and grab the new wallpapers at Amnesia Later. Just thinking about Orion's route makes me go 。゚+.o((*´∀`*))o。゚+

A company called Tyrant will release a new BL game called Tokyo Onmyouji. Planned release isn't until next year, but the site has already opened and judging from the teaser picture I think it might be nice!

A sudden update with new wallpapers and yet another voice sample was updated earlier this week at DRAMAtical Murderer.

A trial for the long-awaited Lucky Dog 1 sequel is here. Download and try the game today. Release date is April 8th.

March and April has got to be one of the most busy and most expensive months for us otome-ge players. There are so many titles getting released the upcoming weeks. I'm torn between what to buy/play and not. If you still got some money to spare, treat yourself with a limited edition or first press edition with bonus item from AmiAmi or CDJapan. Bookmarks, posters, special Drama CDs or more are always included in those.

Last but not least...
I'm honestly more of a Masato fan myself, but god damn, Ren ( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \

Pretty sure the Hanayaka thing will be an OVA rather than a full blown TV series so not worth worrying about.

Custom drive's feature will be that based on the looks/personality you will get different CGs/ i guess that can be something of interest.

I see, I see.
Yeah, I'll probably play Custom Drive just to try it out in the end anyway. It's nice to see a company trying something a bit different once in a while.
