Where is the time I had like 16 reviews ready to be posted, hahaha...*sigh* Anyway, the news.
The seiyuu for the next prince has been announced: Yusa Kouji. This series is gathering more and more popular seiyuu.... Also, if you go to the official site you'll see that the top has been changed to an image celebrating the Setsubun (the last day of winter）.
Meisaku Bungaku (warai)
The cast for the upcoming CD 'the Ant and the Grasshopper' has been announced. Hino Satoshi will voice the ant, while the grasshopper will be voiced by Fukuyama Jun, and finally Terashima Takuma will voice the stag beetle, though I have no idea where he comes into the story.
The official blog also states that the parody version will also return in this CD. So look forward to the story of the ant and the grasshopper being adapted into: a band version, an idol version, job hunting, and a marriage proposal.
For those who read Degenki Girls Style, a special CD in which Kagami Subaru (CV: Suwabe Junichi) gives you a beauty treatment is coming your way. This CD is included as an extra and buying this months Degenki Girls Style is the only way to get it. Even if you don't usually read it, you might want to get it this time. Is also has a nice Uta no Prince-sama poster, and always has a boatload of pretty pictures and information.
Ouristu Ouji Gakuen
The official site has updated with a slightly new layout, and more info on the second series. If you go to the character page you'll also notice that each series corresponds to a year: the princes in the first series were all in their second year of high school, those in the 2nd series in their third year, and the as of yet unannounced princes in the 3rd series in their 1st year. Of course the 3rd series has yet to be confirmed. But on to the princes in the 2nd series:
Ibaraki Sei (CV: Terashima Takuma) represents the story of Sleeping Beauty. He looks sufficiently sleepy for the part, and indeed he is normally quiet but if someone interrupts his sleep will be in a very bad mood.
Namikawa Takumi (CV: Taniyama Kishou) represents the story of the Little Mermaid. His looks and the way he talks may make him seem like a bit of a player, but he is actually a reliable person at heart. He hates water due to almost drowning when he was a little kid.
Yagyuu Ryuunosuke (CV: Morikawa Toshiyuki) represents the story of Beauty and the Beast. He is part of de Kendo club, and due to his strong physique and oppressive manner of speech he has an 'Ore-sama' feeling, but he himself isn't aware of this. Apparently he is bad with modern things, and actually has a very serious illness that he hides from everyone.
Oh yes, we will get another chance to experience how cheating feels. No release date yet, but Kareshi Igai 3 is planned for somewhere in April, and will feature Okamoto Nobuhiko.
Along with it, they also announced another release, but except for the fact that it is planned for May and that it will feature Fukuyama Jn, there is no info about it. Hmmmm, interesting.
The mobile game Halloween+Town is getting two new CD releases. Sweet Voice Collection Happy Box (2012.04.25 release) and Twinkle Box (2012.05.23 release). Both CD's (or boxes?) feature events with three characters. Apparently, both CDs feature (slightly arranged versions of) the season events in the game, together with a valentine and white day scenario and a short original drama with all characters.
The Happy Box will have Ookami Shirou (CV: Kimura Youhei), Ichinomiya Tooru (CV: Hino Satoshi) and Kuroki Takaya (CV: Yusa Kouji) while the Twinkle box has Uryuu Minami (CV: Fukuyama Jun), Rikudou Yuudai (CV: Suwabe Junichi) and Kabocha (CV : Takemoto Eiji)

A second CD featuring personified ramen is coming up! No cast announcement yet, just the fact that the CD is coming on 2012.04.25

It looks like there is another CD in the works for the Ai aru Batou series. 真・罵倒CD Shin Batou, true abuse) promises to be slightly different from Ai aru Batou, though no news on in what way. No cast announcement yet, but the four character types that will be in the CD are known: Insurance doctor, host, prince, and fairy. Yep, we are going to be verbally abused by a fairy. The release is planned for 2012.04.25
Shimekiri CD Konya ha Nemurasenai
The title, which translates to "Deadline CD, I won't let you sleep tonight". The plot is something, amusing to say the least. There is an organisation that supports women who have to stay awake working on some sort of deadline. Two of their agents, Oshikiri Mamoru (CV: Okiayu Ryoutarou) and Shimeno Susumu (CV: Konishi Katsuyuki), are here to help you stay awake. So next time that you have to write a report/ paper, you'll have something to listen too to keep you awake (≧∇≦)ﾉ彡 The release is planned for 2012.03.28, which is just in time for my mid-semester tests so I'll be able to test whether it actually works or not, hahaha
