July 27 is coming. Now, you might be asking ‘WTH will happen on July 27’. The answer is simple, for some unknown reason many companies in Japan releases their products in that day. And by products I mean hardcore otaku stuffs. I will list some of the great stuffs I have to get on July 27.
Bloodshed Jango: Hell’s Bounty
Nitroplus’ new game after Carnevale. It’s written by Urobuchi Gen and artwork by Ｎiθ (who did Demonbane’s artwork). The story is about three female gunslingers in a planet dominated with Wild Western culture. The theme reminds me of Wild Arms series and I’m quite excited since it’s rare for a visual novel to pick Wild West as a theme. For some reason, Nitroplus calls this game as ‘Fantasy Science Spaghetti Western’.
A new game from Key, the same developer that brought us Kanon and Air. As Key’s 6th game it has two character designers, Itaru Hinoue and Na-Ga. Just like other Key’s games, Little Busters also has calming and light setting although there’s always a probability to turn melancholic. The story is about a boy who was saved from his depression by a children gang named Little Busters. Even after they’re in the second year of high school, they still play together as Little Busters.
Fate/Zero volume 3
The prequel of F/SN finally reaches its third volume. Telling the tale of the fourth Fuyuki Holy Grail War, it’s a novel written by Urobuchi Gen (he rocks). Judging from the cover, it seems this volume focuses more in the interaction between Caster, Lancer, and Saber.
The Surprise of Suzumiya Haruhi
the tenth book of Suzumiya Haruhi series. Its release schedule has been pushed back and I hope we can finally the continuation of our beloved
God Suzumiya-san’s adventure. I myself more interested in the rivalry with the new groups that just appeared.
Melty Blood Act Cadenza ver. B
The PC port of Act Cadenza plus playable White Ren! There’s nothing more for a MB fan to ask for. I hope there will be new features than White Ren.
Tsukihime volume 5
The manga version of Tsukihime. After SHIKI appeared in volume 4, this manga finally reaches its climax. I have to say that the manga is a great adaptation of Arcueid’s route. Why the non-existent anime didn’t follow the same storyline of the manga!?
Lycee ver. Alicesoft 4
Now, I’m not a Lychee player but my friend is. Without me realizing it, I’m already a Lychee cards collector despite the fact that I don’t know how to play it. And there will be new cards from Alicesoft series coming up.
