Part two of Spray’s Valentine’s special drama cd project, STEAL! 愛されWhiteday is released. It was supposed to be released about a week after White Day (24/3/201 1) but was delayed due to the earthquake in Japan on 11/3/2011.

Summary: Both CDs are basically love-love situations for each featured pairing. A sweet treat for fans of the game and seiyuus.
If you’re not familiar with the game, this is its background setting: Kaidou Gakuen 魁堂学園 is an training ground setup by Manus Pica (マ二ュスピカ), an organisation formed of top-notch “bandits” 怪盜 where you can learn all sorts of techniques for covert activities, for example, pick-pocketing, lock-picking, hacker skills, etc. Named, “True Eyes” the protagonist, Kobayashi Asuka will meet and team up with eight fellow trainees who are specialised in their own fields for various missions. In the process, they will uncover the mystery of a huge conspiracy surrounding them…
Looking at the cast list, I’m reminded of the surprise I had when the game was first released. Cos 6 out of 9 seiyuus used their real names in this BL game lol~ Midorikawa Hikaru has always used his real name for BL games but it’s the first time for all the other seiyuus. I read somewhere that said that the H-level for this game isn’t very high. Maybe that’s why? And now they’re probably compensating with lots of ecchi BLCDs to keep the fans happy :3
I didn’t buy this game when it was first released as I didn’t like Abe Atsushi’s uke voice much then. It’s personal preference though cos I’m sure there are fans of his uke voice. I was tempted by the seme cast but it didn’t push me over the ledge cos of budget constraints ^^;; These two BLCDs were quite enjoyable tho and I think Abe Atsushi has improved a lot over the months.
