Weekly News Post (part 1)

Once again, this news post is late because I was in London for the weekend. The main reason was to see the Final Fantasy Anniversary Concert, which was amazing! But I've also seen lots of the pretty architecture all over town, and went to see Top Hat on Saturday as well (I have a weakness for old movies and musicals). But on to the news, yes.

Oujisama (warai)
The cover for the third CD has been revealed on the official site. They will start releasing previews of the scenario somewhere later this month as well.

Otoko no Ko
The Otoko no Ko series is getting a manga adaption. It will be published at the Comic Zero Sum Online  site starting 2012.12.10 and will be illustrated bu Nerisuke. Hopefully the comic will raise some more popularity so that we will get another drama CD as well (^-^)

Kannou Mukashi Banashi
a (ridiculously high quality version) of the cover illustration for Kannou Mukashi Banshi 8 has been postod on the official blog. The Illutration is by Oda Suzuka, who also worked on the character designs for Kannou Mukashi Banashi Portable, and illustrates (on of) the Shinrei Tantei Yakuma Manga's.

Ojisama Senka
The series is getting a radio broadcast. It will be distributed through Nico Nico on 2012.11.17, and the personalities are Takehiko Mitsutani (from vol.2, CV: Horiuchi Kenyuu) and Yukiya Mibu (from vol.1, CV Inoue Kazuhiko).

Do-M Club.
The introduction voices have been uploaded to the official site. Both characters sound normal until the end, where they switch into do-M mode. Tokiwa Tadashi (CV: Ono Yuuki) apparently considers you his 'master' (as in considering himself a pet, and you the master) while Aida Muneyuki (CV: Inoue Kazuhiko) considers physically hurting someone a sign of love, which is why he wants you to hurt him.

I am now getting kind of curious what kind of character the heroine/ listener will have. I'm wondering whether these two are getting there do-M kicks on while she is mostly unaware until it is too late, or whether she is going to be a full sadist... (both are fine with me though).

Sono Ai ha Yamai ni Itaru
Operetta is releasing another drama CD: Sono Ai ha Yamai ni Itaru (that love is like a disease) . The teaser site doesn't tell us much yet, but the catch phrase does say "the ecstasy and love that bind you", and then the title... this does sound a bit like a potential new Yandere CD. And I hope it is, whahaha.

After being completely puzzled by this series at first I think that I've got the first CD figured out. The description seemed BL-ish, and that is probably exactly what this CD is. BL-ish. So far three scenario out-takes have been posted on the official blog, and by the looks of it the CD features a lot of dialogue that is easily mistaken for something else.

As a reminder: the first CD will be released on 2012.12.26, and is voiced by Ono Dasuke, Sakurai Takahiro, and Kuwahata Yuusuke.

Onee CD
The Okama trend has finally reached the drama CD world. In Onee CD you will be spending time with a character who talks and acts like a woman, despite being a guy.

in オネェCD ファッション誌編集長・ジョージ (Onee CD fashion-shi henshuuchou jouji, Onee CD Fashion Magazine Editor-in-Chief George/Jouji) you have just started working at the editorial department of a fashion magazine. Your boss is Tougou Jouji (CV: Kondo Takashi), but due to his manners it is like he is a female friend instead of being your boss. None the less, he shows a manly side when needed.

The CD is planned for a 2012.12.19 release. I'm not sure whether it is going to be romantical or not, but it is probably going to be hilarious.

10nen Hatsukoi
Frillra is releasing a Christmas themed drama CD for the 10nen Hatsukoi series. In 星空のクリスマスキャロル (hoshizora no kurisumasu kyaroru, Christmas Carol of the Starry Sky) Junpei (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) is forced by Ryouta (CV: Suzumura Kenichi) to play one of the spirits in a Christmas Carol play at a local children's home. Because you obviously need three people to play the different ghosts, he convinces (more like tricks) Jun (CV: Namikawa Daisuke) into participating as well. When the three of them practice the play one evening, something mysterious happens... The CD will be released on 2012.12.21.

Meanwhile the release dates for vol.4 and 5 have been anounced as well: 2013.03.29 and2013.04.26.

Marukawa-Chi no Nekotachi
That doesn't seem to be the only Christmas themed CD by Frillra though. The fifth volume of Marukawa-Chi no Nekotachi is titled 晩夏のメリークリスマス (banka no merii kurisumasu, Late Summer Merry Christmas). The events in the CD however, take place at the end of summer and seem to conclude the story. This CD will be released on 2012.12.21 as well.

Ranobe Ouji Seiya
The official site for the Ranobe Ouji Seiya drama CD is now open. The CD will cover up to the third chapter of the original, as well as an original story. Sample voices for all of the characters are online as well, and it sounds like Sugita Tomokazu will be wonderfully cracky in his role as Seiya. If the sample voices don't make sense to you: they are lines from the first chapter, but you only hear what the characters themselves say, not the reactions by others. Three CMs have also been uploaded, which are as full of crack as the series itself (and mostly involve Seiya convincing people to buy Light Novels, backed by famous music).

Momogre/Kikka are releasing another drama CD under their mystery label. This time they will Arisugawa Arisu his short story 長い廊下がある家 (nagai rouka ga aru ie, The House with the Long Hallway) as a drama CD. Kamiya Hiroshi and Suzumura Kenichi reprise their roles as Himura and Alice, while the other characters in this story are voiced by Kakihara Tetsuya, Namikawa Daisuke, Tamagawa Sakiko, Hirata Hiroaki, Koyama Rikiya, and Yusa Kouji. The CD is planned for a 2012.12.29 release.


  1. Did you play the Kannou Portable too, in addition to the drama cd or do you just follow the drama cd only? :P I'm getting interested in KMB now after all the praising you've been raving on and on XD lols so I take it cover illustration is not usually that HQ when you say "ridiculously high quality version"?

    DO-M and Sono Ai... come quick//// :w;
    Stop torturing me with this, this updates QwQ (How do you listen to the intro voice? ;AAA: How does one open a .wax file? :L)
    I think I'm getting more and more into Yande and being both Do-M and Do-S now;; just when I thought I know myself quite well.. and the next thing you know BAM! You shocked yourself speechless XD

    Th-there's going to be a okama/onee drama cd now? ∑(OwO ) WAIT! "has finally"? Since when was this okama trend been going on about? LOL

    1. I have the game and played several stories, but then I got distracted by other major releases... (probably Tales of).

      What I mean with ridiculously high quality is the measurements of the image, usually they don't release them in sizes like that. You could print a poster from this one.

      Okama characters have been appearing more and more in otome games over the past few years. Not everyone is a fan though xD
