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
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.
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).
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
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.
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.
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).
