And then the other eroge released this month I got. I don’t know why she’s naked for the cover when Hokejo was relatively wholesome. On semi related note the cover for next chapter (student council president) is only half naked instead.
I’m still reading through the first one so it’ll take a few more days before I start reading this.
As can be seen from the photo above, bought from all the stores (which I should get around posting the tapestries soon).
Also got one dakimakura cover. Although as I mentioned elsewhere, I’m not sure if I like the overall design here. The front side is too covered and the other side is not the front but back pose instead. Why :(
I’m holding my decision so the full photo will come later (or never). Or maybe just check here.
And I haven’t even started on pieces yet which apparently related to this series as well. It will take a while until I finally read this…
Bought from all the stores which have voice drama DLC.
For some reason I didn’t get the shikishi from the two physical stores. Either that or I got them but forgot where I stored them. That said the shikishi was printed in interesting way – the paper is way smoother than the usual paper used for shikishi. The closest thing I can think of is sticker paper.
Oh well, not like it’s got that much additional value anyway. Also it’s easier to sell just the game package especially as the box is small enough it fits the cheaper shipping method.
Happy new year and here’s the first (scheduled) post for this year.
Now I think about it, I should’ve posted this one before that soundtrack CD.
Oh well. It’s the Specialite edition just because. And then there’s the bonus CD from Sofmap and Getchu and Official Store. I think the Official Store one is made redundant by the soundtrack CD but I haven’t checked it (and can’t check since I’m currently migrating data and they’re inaccessible until it’s done). Yep it’s redundant. Good job me.
The content. Also has another drama CD.
And lastly the bonus shikishi. I don’t know why there’s a Natsukuru shikishi in it but sure, fine. Better than balloons of Akikuru at least.
Another weird thing is the Fuyukuru shikishi themselves are B5 sized instead of usual shikishi size.
Here’s how I drowned myself deeper in my backlogs. Five (four if excluding one already in my backlog) new titles. All in one convenient package, complete with soundtracks.
Each are in their own case with booklet on one side and the discs on the other.
Unfortunately two of the cases have their booklet holder slightly teared up. I’m not bothering getting them replaced since I don’t really care that much about the packaging. Although I’ll end up keeping the box just because they’re convenient.
And lastly the bundled calendar from official store. Upon a quick glance it’s clear the images are original cover then the newly drawn image for each titles. But being penta means five means only 10 images available is what I thought. Then I realized they cheated Tenshin Ranman by including both original and the non-ero edition images of it.
At double height A4, it’s pretty large. It sure would be nice if they also label the public holidays instead of just marking them red.
Full title is Hokenshitsu no Sensei to Shabondama Chuudoku no Joshu which is a bit too long.
Another thing added to the backlog. At least this one should be pretty short being single route and all. And then another route coming up next year.
I try reading this before the second route is released 👀
The large box contains a tall slim DVD case which contains one disc and manual booklet. The inside background is covered but it’s the dakimakura cover image bundled in different version of this which I’m not getting (and is pretty expensive at the moment). Not that I’m planning to get it anyway.
I’ve actually started playing this and halfway finishing my first heroine route.
It’s from Tora no Ana so there’s that Camus acrylic figure bonus. As for the tapestry, I don’t think I’ve even opened it yet. Much less taking its photo. Maybe I’ll get around it when I enter her route (when).
The main story is pretty good although the romance is a bit lacking. There’s just some short bits here and there and then suddenly things happen.
I’m not exactly sure why I tried this but it ended up fun. Can only use three units in the trial.
Shelly is currently the most versatile one and Lugh is the most difficult to use.
The battle is fast paced so that’s nice. The problem is the keyboard control is kind of shit. I wonder if I should finally buy a controller. I’m not sure how much better it’ll be but I think it should work better with one. A controller would also be useful for some other games if I ever play some. Annoyingly, the controller I’m considering (Xbox Series Wireless) doesn’t seem to support wireless mode on Windows 8.1 and the compatible adapter is a bit rare.
Story seems fine so far with not much fluff and pretty much straight to business. The MC being voiced is rather interesting. I haven’t seen one since 9-nine. I wonder if he’s voiced in H-scenes as well just like 9-nine lol.
So, um, yeah, I’m getting this. From Tora no ana as originally planned.
The other eroge I bought this month. Also from Getchu. The box is very hollow and only contains a thin manual leaflet and the game disc.
Also the actually game CGs are only 1920×1080 (or x1440) despite the product page saying “supports 4k”. It does show 4k resolution option but then everything is upscaled, which is just like what every other games are. I don’t have original the game anyway and 1080p is good enough upgrade for me but some people did complain about it.
That said, they cropped the CG from 4:3 to fit 16:9. Extending the sides would’ve been better but I guess they’re not going to do that. Given the full price they demanded, they should’ve done that…
Oh and even the 1080p CGs seem rather upscaled. It’s just on par for a sprite milking release, I suppose =/
And here’s the last eroge I bought this month. I really have no idea when I’ll finally get around playing this. Maybe I should push it from my backlog queue a bit? Mainly due to the sheer number of goodies I have.
Now that’s one heck of eroge box cover. When first seeing it I thought the girls seem quite a lot nicer than I remember. Especially around the breasts area. And then I realized it’s their past. Or something.
The box is big and contains quite a few stuff:
That acrylic panel at top left sure looks rather nice. If only I have space to actually put it on…
The book is only 24 pages so the 7000 yen extra must be mostly went to that panel.
But anyway, yeah, dragons. Not this kind of dragon. Just your usual dragon girls. With horns and stuff. I’m still not sure if I’ll like it because I generally don’t like horns. But it’s Takano Yuki, so it could be okay. Also not all of them have horns all the time which is where I’m hopeful.
I finally finished reading all the routes and stuff. I started August last year so overall it took me almost a year to finish. I finished several other titles in between though. Strictly counting, I think it took me about a bit over 5 months total.
A bit too many balloons as usual but at least the main one is good. Shiguma (Sigma?) listed as subcharacter but she appears in Concept page background and her description seems to indicate she’s a key person. Maybe true route?
Interestingly the game is a bit cheaper in Getchu (both editions) and Sofmap (deluxe edition).
