This might have been a scam D:

Each month, receive a yaoi/shounen-ai crate full of hot and kawaii anime stuff straight from Japan! The campaign starter, Nicholas got in touch with me about this project. I’ve been rather busy with work and couldn’t make a post earlier. Hope funding is a success!

Title: FUJOBOX – A Yaoi Goodies Subscription Box
Started by: Nicolas Henrion
Indiegogo page: https://igg.me/at/fujobox/x
Deadline: 2 Aug 2016
Goal: US$20,000
Estimated release October 2016 (if funding goal is reached)

Official description: FUJOBOX is the first subscription box for fujoshis and fudanshis! Each month, receive a carefully-curated selection of yaoi and shounen-ai merchandise straight from Japan. And because we’re just that nice, each FUJOBOX also contains sweets that are only available in Japan! Each FUJOBOX is sent straight from Japan to your home free of charge, wherever you are in the world. All of our anime goodies are licensed, high-quality merchandise from popular yaoi and shounen-ai series or mangas.

About the founder

Hi, my name is Nicolas and I’m a yaoi and shounen-ai fan from Europe. Some of you may actually know me as /u/gayfarang from /r/yaoi on Reddit (if not, hi there, glad to meet you!).

I’ve been living in Asia for the past 9 years and one of the complaints I’ve heard the most from fudanshis or fujoshis living in Europe or in America is how hard it is for them to get their hands on yaoi or shounen-ai merchandise. Many anime shops in the West stock no or very little yaoi merchandise, making it hard for fans to buy the cool products we have in Asia.

Being in my thirties and having experience in e-commerce, I thought it would be interesting to set up a service that would allow people in the West to get yaoi and shounen-ai merchandise at a reasonable price. This is how the idea of the FUJOBOX (Fujoshi Box, get it?) was born!

I recently met some people who are extremely familiar with anime suppliers in Japan and we are now ready to launch our business.

But, to do so, we need your support!

Your contributions will go towards:

  • Setting up a registered company in Japan.
  • Buying supplies and inventory.
  • Setting up a decent website along with an order processing system.

If you’re unable to support us at this time, don’t worry about it! Sharing our campaign with fellow yaoi fans is just as important, so don’t hesitate to click the social media icons to the right and spread the word.

Thanks!

What you get in your FUJOBOX

Our FUJOBOX is a monthly subscription box for yaoi and shounen-ai lovers.

The box contains 4 anime goodies, officially licensed from anime or manga publishers, along with a sweet treat from Japan such as Japanese candy, Japan-only chocolate bars, etc…

Once our service is live, we plan on offering customers a choice between different plans:

  • A one-off box with no recurring charges.
  • A monthly subscription service (1 box per month) that is automatically renewed every 31 or 30 days.
  • A 3-month subscription package (3 boxes sent on a monthly basis).
  • A 6-month subscription package (6 boxes sent on a monthly basis).
  • A 12-month subscription package (12 boxes sent on a monthly basis).

All boxes will be sent by air mail from Japan to any destination in the world. There will be no additional shipping charges regarding of where you live.

ANIME GOODIES

As mentioned above, our merchandise will be fully-licensed original merchandise featuring cute or hot anime boys.

Types of merchandise:

  • pencil cases
  • pillow cases
  • pens
  • stationary
  • bracelets
  • straps
  • plastic mats
  • posters
  • gachapon balls
  • … and many, many more!

Basically, we plan on offering everything that is on offer in Tokyo’s largest comic shops.

Our merchandise will focus on the best and latest anime or manga series, such as:

  • SUPER LOVERS
  • FREE!
  • Junjou Romantica
  • Black Butler
  • Love Stage!!
  • Shounen Maid
  • SerVamp

If a show has fan service or revolves around cute boys, you can be sure we will include it in one of our boxes!

IMPORTANT: To safeguard your privacy, pictures of boys or the words “yaoi” or “shounen-ai” do not appear on the outside of our boxes.

They’re also running a referral contest that you can get BL freebies so pop over to find out more!

The format of the anime has not been specified yet. It seems likely to be OVA rather than TV animation? I rather have a few high-quality animated OVA than more episodes of crappy ones to be honest. Hopefully they keep the water colour and dreamy style as shown in the PV throughout the episodes. The music is beautiful and captures the mood perfectly :)

STORY:
The story begins during music class before the chorus festival, when high school student Kusakabe Hikaru notices that the bespectacled honor student Sajou Rihito is not singing. Although he thinks that Rihito just doesn’t like singing, he finds him practicing alone in the classroom after school. Without even thinking, Hikaru calls out to him.
合唱祭前の音楽の授業中、同級生でメガネの優等生・佐条利人が歌っていないことに気付いた草壁光。佐条は歌なんかくだらないのかと思っていたが、ある日の放課後、だれもいない教室でひたむきに歌の練習をする佐条の後ろ姿を見た草壁は思わず声をかける…。

Hopefully we’ll get to see related books in the series get anime adaptations :) including the spin-off Sora to Hara 空と原 and sequels Sotsugyousei 卒業生 (Graduates) and O.B.. Digital Manga Guild has released Doukyuusei and Sotsugyousei in English.

A BL dating sim with reversible roles. Explore town, enjoy stories with lots of CGs, pursues 5+ guys and build career as a voice actor.

The creators, meyaoigames got in touch with me and gave me a heads up on this ambitious BL game they are making!  Do check them out, support their Kickstarter campaign and play their demo!

Title: Seiyuu Danshi: English BL / Yaoi Dating Sim / Visual Novel
Started by: meyaoigames (meyaoi.com)
Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/1X3RYCo
Deadline: 20 Mar 2016
Goal: US$5,000 (FUNDED! Now for the stretch goals)
Estimated release June 2017
Platforms: PC, Mac

Official description (info below edited from their kickstarter page/screen grabbed from their game demo):

What is Seiyuu Danshi?  

Seiyuu Danshi is a Japanese-style Visual Novel / Dating sim (whichever you prefer) with voice acting as its main theme. In this game, you’ll play as a newbie voice actor who strives for the Seiyuu Award. On his way to reach his goal, though, he will still live his daily life and YOU get to make the choices on how he should spend the days.

Do you want him to take on extra lessons in order to reach the goal faster? Or, would you like to go on a romantic date with the guy you accidentally met at shopping mall? It’s ALL your choice.

The game is highly interactive and there’s no usual restriction in plot that you get in ordinary VNs. If you don’t feel like working, feel free to slack.  If you feel like being single for the rest of your life, yes it can be done (why would you do it in a DATING sim, though?). Just keep in mind that ALL your actions matter and will decide how the game ends!

Wanna try it out firsthand? You can play the demo NOW!

>>>>>>> Download link <<<<<<<

Disclaimer: All parts of the demo are still subject to changes. The final build of the game may differ from the demo, but you get the idea on how we want this game to be.

The demo contains only the first two weeks of the game. Some features are still disabled in this demo, but you get the rough idea on how we want to approach this game. Notes: The demo has NOT been proofread, so there might be some grammatical mistakes here and there. However, we want you to know that the final game will be thoroughly proofread by professionals, so don’t worry.

For the full game, you can play as the main character for around 1 year game time. There are 5 love interests + 1 secret character that are woo-able. The estimated completion date is Summer 2017. It might sound far away, but we don’t want to make promises that we can’t fulfill. This estimate is a worst-case one, so there’s a chance it might be released sooner than that.

Story:

You’ll play as a newbie voice actor, who’s also a runaway, who’s on the verge of being kicked out from his agency. Going back home is not an option, thus begin his journey to become a good-enough-voice-actor-to-not-get-kicked-out-of-the-agency! Join his journey and woo some guys on the way!

Features:

  • REVERSIBLE ROLES  In Seiyuu Danshi, you are able to choose whether you want to TOP or BOTTOM. Even better, you are NOT restricted to one role in a relationship and can freely choose your preferred role in EACH intercourse!
  • FOREPLAY MODE Are you tired of those intercourses without preparation? In Seiyuu Danshi, you have to go on “FOREPLAY MODE” and prepare your partner before the actual intercourse! Each character has different preferences in what parts they want to stimulate! Don’t forget to keep your role preferences in mind when stimulating your partner! (To-be-added feature: Flipping the guys. Do you want to see his face and abs? Just toggle the “front view”. Wanna see his bum, instead? Ask him to flip over by toggling the “behind view”)
  • DRESS-UP SCENE Before going on a date, you can choose which clothes you want to wear. Each of the guys like different types of clothing, so keep that in mind! Psst, you may get additional affection bonus when you “accidentally” wear the same clothes as your partner! There’ll be 500+ kinds of clothes consists of casual, preppy, funky, elegance and sporty.
  • ROAM THE TOWN Our game features the clickable town map that you can travel through. Spend time with your love or spend your own sweet time in the nearby cafe… it’s your choice.
  • LOVERS LIFE Unlike other dating sims, in which the game ends after the main character gets a lover, in this game you can still play even after you get a lover! Not only experiencing the intimate moments, you also get to argue and fight like actual couple!
  • JOB SYSTEM In this game, there is a unique range of voice acting jobs, starting from anime gigs to BL game works, whether to accept them or not is your choice! Keep in mind, though, that you have to go on an audition first before you get the job!
  • WALLPAPER SYSTEM Your phone has a wallpaper that will change depending on your level of relationship with someone! When you have a crush on someone, your wallpaper will be that of your crush and when you get a boyfriend, your wallpaper picture will be that of your boyfriend and you!
  • DATE SYSTEM On weekends, you can take on the guys on a date on various date locations. Spend your time and energy carefully so that you can increase the most affection!
  • CG GALLERY & SCENE REPLAY SYSTEM Every dating sim will not be complete without these two features. This game will have a CG gallery where you can view CGs that you have obtained and replay the scenes!

Characters:






About the creators:

Size: 160x50cm
Official Ten Count dakimakura cover will feature two brand new illustrations from mangaka Takarai Rihito.
Info: http://www.shinshokan.com/10count/information/g-33.html

I guess the only complaint is that Shirotani and Kurose’s legs are cut off due to the 160cm length. The artwork is gorgeous! :D but the price is higher than expected of dakimakura of this size…

Ten count dakimakura

Ten count (テンカウント ) is the latest BL manga by Takarai Rihito who illustrated the hugely successful school-boy shounen-ai (if my memory serves me correctly) 2-vol. manga Seven Days セブンデイズ (written by Tachibana Benio 橘紅緒). It has been licensed, so grab the English copy at your local store :) Ten count’s licensed English version by Sublime is available on 9 August 2016.

The manga has an intriguing plot and from vol. 2 onwards has an increasing amount of smut to keep 18+ readers happy :P

Synopsis: Corporate secretary Shirotani suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. One day he meets Kurose, a therapist who offers to take him through a ten-step program to cure him of his compulsion. As the two go through each of the ten steps, Shirotani’s attraction to his counselor grows.

Takarai Rihito’s new artbook: MIRROR is available for preorder too and you can find various fun goods like post cards, masking tape, hand wipes, etc from cdJapan/comicomi as well :D

Reasons to fork out money for the PSP port: New events added for the twins (伊勢兄弟) New material for the original main characters will be added too, including the after stories of the PC’s endings. Definitely helps to be full-voiced too.

Can you guess the seiyuu from Kyouichirou’s voice sample? I have no clue ^^;; Rumoured to be Takumi Yasuaki 内匠靖明. What do you think? I like how he sounds! The background music sounds lovely too. Please share your thoughts! Check it out on the official site. According to the sample track, there will be count down voices nearing the release date! Let’s look forward to them!

Main characters

Hiiragi Kyouichirou 柊京一郎 (ひいらぎ きょういちろう) (CV: 鯱矛太郎) Takumi Yasuaki 内匠靖明
「だからと言って逃げるわけにはいかない。貴方のやっている事は違いだ! 」
Details: Protagonist. Born to the family of landowners. He is the eldest son and heir. Lives a blessed life and taught by his parents to live an unselfish and noble life (noblesse oblige ノブレス・オブリージュ) Basically, he is stubborn and hates injustice (I think). He is staying at his uncle’s place while attending university in the Imperial Capital. He was seriously ill as a child. When he recovered, he can see the dead. He is afraid of what he sees and hopes things will change if he moved to the Imperial Capital. He is excellent at swordfighting and uses a sword which is a family heirloom for self-defense. He gets along well with his parents and has an intelligent sister. Favorite food are desserts from a Japanese confectionery shop Daikokuya 大黒屋.

Misaki ミサキ (CV:オイリーはな) is Hanada Hikaru 花田光 last BL game voiced was Lamento Beyond the Void. And he is the voice of Usami Akihiko from Junjou Romantica
「あァ?何だ手前、蹴るぞ」
Details: A youth Kyouichirou meets in the Imperial Capital. His background is unknown and he does not talk much about himself. Whenever Ryouichirou gets into trouble, he’ll appear and help him and then disappear just as unexpectedly. He is sarcastic and has no mercy towards people he hates.

Tatebayashi Kai 館林開 (たてばやし かい) (CV:十利須我里) is Hino Satoshi 日野聡 woo! :D
「護国のためだ。天子様の命と思い、従え」
Details: He is an imperial army officer and has a very real and direct character. He is leading a platoon hurriedly organised for a special mission. それゆえ隊章が間に合わず、不本意ながら白いままである。He takes pride in protecting the country and thinks that suffering from sacrifices is nothing.

Shigure 時雨 (しぐれ) (CV:泉菊之助) Miura Hiroaki 三浦祥朗
「邪魔をするなら敵と見なし、斬る」
Details: Head of Gohondou 五刀衆現. His family used to perform funeral rites for the Emperor, however, they have since opposed the military authorities and is banished. The previous chief betrayed them and defected to the military authorities, sharing with them the family’s secret skills. He wants to retrieve the secret skills and kill the previous chief, thus challenging the military authorities.

Senge Iori 千家伊織 (せんげ いおり) (CV: 四ツ谷サイダー 大石けいぞう) is Kondou Takashi 近藤隆 is the hot long-haired seme! *salivates*Announced on 19 October 2012, cast changed to relatively new seiyuu Okitsu Katsuyuki 興津和幸.
「全てを捧げろ。それがお前に出束る唯ーの事だ」
Details: An imperial army officer who has a cruel character.
A hard-liner who use any means against anyone who oppose him, even within the military authorities. Cruel character who will do anything as long as it fulfills his purpose. Nobility.

Delicious bishie sandwich

Uke or not, he looks hot with a sword!

What the hell are you staring at?

Long haired Tetsuo x Youji in Yukata lol~

This BL game project was planned for development from as far back as 2008 if I remember correctly. But it was shelved for almost 3 years while LoveDelivery produced the sequels of their previously released BL games.

When I first saw the character design back then, you can imagine the amount of drool that flowed ^^ Meiji/Taisho era Japan is one of the yummiest. With delicious looking military uniforms and yummy men in traditional yukata. It was a fujoshi dream come true.

LoveDelivery announced sometime in January this year that they’re going to pick up this project again and have it released in 2011.

But someone please enlighten me what Mebiusline means?

Oh yeah! Zetsubou-sensei (I mean Youji, ah no Hiiragi Kyouichirou) slaying enemies

World domination. Oh yes… the stuff of wet dreams.

And twin-cest + eye-patch + military uniform moe . *nose bleeds*

Gosh the potential! Another eagerly awaited BL game.

Very beautiful and clean illustrations reminding me of Omerta~Chinmoku no Okite~. Anyway, I’ll add more information and translations of character bios when I have more time ^^

The back pose looks great! Reeeeally sexy. :D But the front side expression isn’t really doing it for me ^^;; Anyway, I’m not a fan of Toudou but I’ll keep this in consideration.

Last update: 14 February 2014

I hereby declare 2014 as the year of sexy male hugging pillows…

Get ready your wallets, brothers and sisters!

Thanks to accummulated work stress and a bad immune system, I’ve been kept away from doing blog updates for more than 1 month this year… Checking Omerta’s site today for Valentine’s Day specials and lo and behold… there will be EIGHT NEW MEN SMEX PILLOW COVERS coming our way. (And not to mention other relatively recent hugging pillow covers/bedsheets/wall stickers announced/already released, including K (Suoh Mikoto x Munakata Reisi Animate/Movic exclusives), Prince of Tennis (Shiraishi/Yukimura), Brother’s Conflict (Natsume Asahina), Samurai Flamenco, Angel Beats re-release, and THE UNLIMITED Hyoubu Kyousuke, etc, all of which I didn’t have time to make proper posts of…)

So here’s the deal for Omerta dakimakura covers. Each new illustration by Tateishi Ryou 立石涼さん will feature the characters in sexy shots (woohoo!). And the covers will be released on their birthdays. So we have a confirmed, nearly whole year’s worth of sexy men pillows to look forward to. Each dakimakura cover will also come with limited edition clear folders with illustrations from Omerta song series CD package 「オメルタ~沈黙の掟~ステージソングシリーズ」.

Prices will be adjusted up after 1 April 2014 due to goods tax increase in Japan to 8%.

Btw, JJ’s dakimakura cover will be re-released as well, so if you missed it the previous times, here’s you chance again. But sorry about the prices tho… these babies will cost us up to at least US$150 bucks each (shipping/proxy). All available for preorder from Karin’s official store. Proxy or forwarding service required for JJ’s daki but others are available at amiami.com.

Good thing for me is that I don’t feel it for Liu Jien’s expression in the designs… much as I like his yukata side… for a steep price like this, it has to be perfect! So money saved for now. Wonder if the rest will look good enough like JJ’s to make me bleed my wallet.

Summary:
Take care of a “useless” guy you picked up and cultivate him into an ikemen (handsome guy). Love simulation game for women! Multiple endings prepared. Your choices will change his future! What kind of fate awaits? Happiness or ruin? A wondrous/strange experience of living together begins…

女性向け恋愛シミュレーションゲーム!エンディングは複数用意.アナタの選択次第で彼との未来が変わっていく!ダメなヒモ男をお世話して自分好みのイケメンに育てる. この運命の先にあるのは「幸せ」それとも「破滅」?彼との不思議な同居生活が今始まるー…

Comments:
If you try to translate ヒモ男 with online translators, you’ll get “pimp” lol~ but that’s not “himo-otoko” means. I did some research and it seems to refer to a man who is being “kept”, like for example, he is being supported by someone else, living expenses paid for, kind of like a leech living off you ^^;; but he is not necessary a pimp (since a pimp exclusively lives off prostitutes :P) or gigolo cos in the game it isn’t clear he is actually sleeping with you or just playing console games everyday and making a mess around your house. Anyway the premise of the story is this…

You’re feeling tired working way beyond office hours everyday… one rainy day you bump into a man in messy hair and dirty clothes, sitting by the roadside, drenched without an umbrella. You normally wouldn’t approach someone like this but for some reason, you can’t look away. He said he has nowhere to go and you said “Would you like to come to my house?” And thus a wondrous/strange experience of living together begins…
毎日残業続きで疲れ果てたアナタは雨の中、傘もささずに道端に座り込む男に出会う。ボサボサの髪、薄汚れた服……普段なら絶対関わらないようにするはずなのになぜだか彼から目が離せない。帰る場所がないという彼にこんな提案をしてしまう。「私の家にきますか?」こうしてアナタと彼の不思議な同居生活が始まるー…

Your tamagochi guy: Kanzaki Yuuto 神崎ユウと
Voice actor: Takumi Yasuaki, 内匠靖明.

On the left shows how he looks like in the beginning… so messy and like L from Death Note and so full of potential ikemen-ness lol~ See right screen cap after the first transformation. You are supposed to collect Care-taking points so that he can go into the next level of transformation. And that is done by swiping all the trash into the box at the top. Each type of trash is worth different points. You’ll unlock more types as he transforms. The better mood he is in, the higher the points each trash is worth. The only way to make his mood better is by chatting with him. A quick tip to recharge the chat quickly is run a VPN to change your IP to Japan before starting the app. It’ll allow you to watch game ad videos for full-recharge, up to 6 times a day.

Depending on your answers, you’ll make his mood become good or bad. And you also get a different transformation as the story progresses. In the beginning, you’ll also be presented with choices of clothes you select for him (Refreshing/Cool), how you like his hair to be (Tied/short/long) and whether you find him (Cute/Cool/etc). This will also contribute to the type you get too.

Album page: Growth Diary. You’ll see the boys you collected. Tap on the boy to see his details. It’ll give you a hint on how to answer the questions if you want to ace his Good mood every time or piss him off on purpose. You can also listen to the voice too. The voice actor did a great job voicing different guy types.

Album: Items of Memories. You can read more about the trash that he creates and find out more about it lol~

Setting and Share/screencap page. You can share about the app on Facebook or Twitter once a day to launch the FEVER mode. He will create lots of trash very quickly so that you can get more care-taking points.

I love to keep disturbing him while he is in a bad mood to see funny things he says! XD

At the end of the game you’ll be rewarded with a story and illustration CG of the boy you cultivated :D I got a doctor in my first try. Who did you get?

Also, the maker is promising to add more guy types to the game. Looking forward to it! XD

What’s a manjuu 饅頭, まんじゅう?

Manjuu is a popular traditional Japanese confection. There are many varieties of manjuu, but most have an outside made from flour, rice powder and buckwheat and a filling of anko, made from boiled azuki beans and sugar.

If you like to get a better idea, check out my other posts: Smexy buns from Spray (Gakuen Heaven, Kichiku Megane, STEAL!) and Sakura Pink Attack! Steamy Hetalia Buns

Some of the omanjuus in my possession including Omanjuu Niginigi Mascot Vol.2 and the Makoto, Haruka big omanjuu cushions D:

About the manga/anime:
Source: http://ansatsukyoshitsu.wikia.com/wiki/Assassination_Classroom

Assassination Classroom (暗殺教室 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu) is an ongoing Japanese manga written and illustrated by Yuusei Matsui that has appeared in Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump magazine since July 2012.

A strange new teacher is introduced to Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School. The teacher is a round-headed, tentacled octopoid creature capable of moving at speeds of up to Mach 20 and whose color changes depending on his mood. Prior to introducing himself to his new class, he managed to carve out a large chunk of the moon to become a permanent crescent moon. In a year, he plots to destroy the earth, but decides to teach a junior high school class in the meantime for an unknown reason. With this strange creature having effectively taken over the world, the government reluctantly complies with his request on the condition that he does not harm his students.

Affectionately, the students of Class E call him Korosensei, which is pun on the term korosenai (殺せない lit. unkillable or can’t be killed) and sensei (先生). These same students greet him everyday with assassination attempts in their journey to save the world by eventually murdering their own teacher, and to earn 10 billion yen from the government.

Just when I resolved to stop buying plushies orz;;;

These are based on Yupon’s illustrations of the ukes, Akira, Konoe, Youji from 2010. See this post.This means we can expect the semes to be made sometime down the road… omg our wallets!!!

This is a classic case of being careful with what you wish for because it might just come true! If you see my old post back in 2011, these plushies were exactly what I wished for when I was reviewing the Nitro+CHiRAL 5 Years artbook orz;;;

Event: Gift SHOP 2015 AUTUMN 「SPECIAL LOT DAY」
Location: 浅草橋ヒューリックホール http://www.hulic-hall.com/
Date: 24 October 2015
Time: 11:00 am – 5:00pm
Link: http://www.gift-gift.jp/event/201510_giftshop_splot.html

If I’m not wrong, these boys are only available via “special lots” tickets which costs 800 Yen each. I’ll update again when more details are available.

Judging from the detail, I think you can expect a damage of at least 4,000 Yen per plush. And that’s not including shipping and proxy fees since so far most Nitro+Chiral plushies are not sold in usual hobby stores that ship internationally.

Anyway, Aoba’s illustration should be new. I haven’t been very updated with the latest developments, so I could be wrong.

If I can only have one, I’ll go for Konoe. Me and my neko-mimi fetish :P followed by Akira.

Gift will reveal more details when their special site for Summer comiket is launched this weekend :)

The game is set in a fantasy universe where the world is made up of a huge continent split into four kingdoms inhabited by 98% of the world’s population. Controlled mainly by four “Kings”, each king possesses a specific ability named Galita (ガルティア) that has four different characteristics which influence how the society and culture of each country develop. As resources in the world start to deplete, the shadow of decline looms in the background. What will the future hold for the world, and the “King”?

A promising BL game by a brand new BL game company, GRISEDGE. It seems like fantasy BL with potential RPG elements. The “Kings” setting remind me of K the anime whose first season ended recently though.

Only about 3% of the world’s population possess Galtia ability. Out of these, one insignia of each ability type, called the “King’s Crest” will appear only on the body of persons who are the strongest. This evidence shows that the person is “King”. The next 13 strongest persons are called “Numbers”. In most instances, these people would be in positions of power. Countries prosper under the influence of the “King” and decline in his absence.

The four countries/abilities are  generally summarised as follows (some translated names are not official):

1) Diamante ディアマンテ
Most technologically advanced and active in trade and commerce. Known as the country of merchants and citizens with a vibrant subculture. It’s ruler, the “Sun King” 陽王 is a mysterious presence absent from the political scene. People of “Diamante” have the ability to “alter application” – Transmutation? 変化応用系の能力が主体のディアマンテ人。

2) Vastunie バストゥーニ
Ruled by Sieg ジーク, the “Black King” 黒王. The military country has the strongest army among the four and is currently expanding into the borders of Kruez, a weakened country. A sign of impending war.  As the country tends to place great emphasis on abilities, it faces a problem of social divide between people of strong and weak abilities. It has the largest ore mines in the world and an excellent heavy industry. People of “Vastunie” have the ability to enhance attacks. 攻撃強化系の人。

3) Quarry クウォーリー
A religion state which has a religious holy place with the largest number of believers in the world. According to historical records, this is the longest ruling country among the four and ruled 80% of the whole continent during its golden age. The “Holy King” 聖王, Laurus ラウルス currently enjoys fervent public support as the king and religious leader of the country. People of “Quarry” have telepathic ability. 精神感応系のクウォーリー人。

4) Kreuz クロイツ
The country posseses the largest land area and population. Rich in nature, it is a huge farming country. Due to a certain global incident, their “King” is now absent. As a result, the land and country is in steady decline. It has a deep-rooted spiritual history of nature worship although it is not an organised religion. It is said that this country may be the oldest in the world. As the country is substantially weakening, refugees continue to leave in unstoppable droves. People of “Kreuz” have the ability to strengthen defence. そして、防御強化系のクロイツ人である。

List of Characters and voice cast (seiyuus using pseudonyms as usual)

The character design kinda reminds me of the boys in Spray’s Gakuen Heaven 2 Double Scramble.

Main characters:

Shin シン (CV: 河村眞人/Yamanaka Masahiro 山中真尋 Voice of King in Ariard -Shounen Alice-) From Diamante. Protagonist. Height: 174cm (His height setting is screaming to the world: “I’m UKE!!!”)
Appears cool and calm for his young age. Man of few words. Jack-of-all-trades freelancer who takes jobs from the guild. (Reminds me of Akira from Togainu no Chi)

Senri センリ (CV: 四ツ谷サイダー/Okitsu Kazuyuki 興津和幸) From Diamante. Height: 179cm.
Shin’s childhood friend from the orphanage. Cheerful and gentle young man. One-sided love towards Shin. Well-liked by others due to his personality. Feels a pressing need to protect Shin from the claws of guild master, Diago (lol~). During the day, he teaches at the orphanage and works for the guild at night. (Seems like Keisuke with yandere potential.)

Zeek ジークハルト・エーヴェルシュタイン (ジーク) (CV: 鳩マン軍曹/川原慶久 Kawahara Yoshihisa) From Vastunie. Height: 183cm.
Black King of Vastunie. Known for his strict and authoritative demeanor. He is expressionless and does not display any emotions. He killed his brother who has the most potential to become the next king. Ambitious and does not hide his intentions to expand his country’s territory by war.

Laurus ラウルス・ヴィ・クウォーリー (CV: 佐藤タカ/梯 篤司 Kakehashi Atsushi *Thanks SnowMiyu for the headsup) From Quarry. Height: 178cm.
King and religious leader of Quarry and has overwhelming support from his citizens. He tries to modernize the politics in the country by introducing the separation of Church and the state. He became the king at 12 years old and has the longest ruling history among the four. He is known for his good looks, personality and gentle demeanor but… (He most probably has a kichiku dark side lol~)

Diago ディアゴ (CV: 縞馬男爵/Mamiya Yasuhiro 間宮康弘) From Diamante. Height: 188cm.
Guild master of Al Mars アルマース, the largest guild in Diamante and the world. Calm and generous. He comes and goes as he pleases and appears to be aloof from the world. A walking babe-magnet thanks to his overflowing supply of pheromones. Hates work and is called a “useless” adult.

Zenox ゼノ (CV: 先割れスプーン/鳥海 浩輔 Toriumi Kousuke) Not a citizen of any country. Height: 180cm.
Ultra-first-class assassin from Al Mars who carries out assassinations, political schemes and other shady jobs. Doesn’t like being in a group, preferring to work alone. Unpredictable. He is completely exempted from following strict guild laws and rules. Not even the guild master Diago can control him. But due to his exceptional abilities, no one raises any objection to it.

Sub-characters:

Licht リヒト (CV: スメラギ隼人) From Diamante.
Number 2 of Al Mars. Always chasing after Diago when he skives from work. Sarcarstic, cool beauty.

Aldo アルド (CV: 華雄) From Diamante.
Number 3 of Al Mars. Licht’s childhood friend. He is well-liked by the guild members who look up to him as a big brother.

6 Tokimeki Restaurant hotties to choose from! Not difficult to guess who my favourite is XD Actually, it was love at first sight when I first saw him in this mobile game a couple of years back ^^;; I have 3 top favs out of the 6.

Quick intro of what Tokimeki Restaurant is about in case you decide to “invest” in cloth posters (3000 Yen each o_O) for your room lol~

Title: Tokimeki Restaurant ときめきレストラン☆☆☆
Price: FREE
Available: 14 March 2013
iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/tokimekiresutoran-tokiresu/id575084792?mt=8
Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.konami.tokimekirestaurant
Region-locked for Japan only, so google for ways to get around it :)
Official site: http://www.konami.jp/tokires/
Producer: Konami
Voice: Full-voice only during introduction.

Game objectives: Run your own restaurant, gain new recipes, furniture, CGs, scenarios, etc, by completing quests (seriously endless cooking orz;;), feed the boys and be romanced by them.

The game was first published in 2013. For some reason, I didn’t get round to publishing a review then even though I took all those screen caps. They ended up useless since quite a number of changes to the app has been implemented since then, such as layouts of menus, etc. I guess I’ll leave it to you to give it a try yourself :) In general, most of the functions remain the same.

You play the protagonist 主人公. As in most otome games, your character doesn’t have a face in all the CG artworks. But your chibi version does. Otherwise it’ll be quite inconvenient lol~ The protagonist is recommended by a relative and started working at the restaurant. You stay with the restaurant owner and get to meet the boys since their company has appointed the restaurant as the official caterer. And as all otome games go, all of them have an interest in you after getting to know you. But true to Konami’s otome game tradition, you’re a little dull/insensitive to such things and doesn’t get it most of the time.

To be honest, I didn’t expect to continue playing it till now. The game is VERY repetitive. You pretty much have to cook non-stop in order to complete quests. After the initial excitement dies down (yes, there is a entertaining feature where you get to touch the characters and they respond with sexy moans lol~), the new CGs and scenarios that you can get from new events and missions are the only things keeping me going on now. Which leads to even more mindless cooking orz;;; Why did I fall in love with you Kento!? orz;;; (And Tooru and Kaito… erm… yeah I have a huge capacity for bishie love lol~) Anyway…

Poke me… Here there and everywhere…

Main characters from 2 idol groups are: 3 Majesty and X.I.P

Leaders of the groups were voted by fans before the app was launched.

1) 3 Majesty: The princely-type group.
Kirishima Tsukasa 霧島 司(きりしま つかさ)Voice actor: Namikawa Daisuke 浪川大輔

Megane-kun! He is the “proper” and serious type. Health-conscious too, so he goes for the salads and stuff.

Otowa Shinnosuke 音羽 慎之介(おとわ しんのすけ)Voice actor: Kishio Daisuke 岸尾だいすけ

Birthday: 18 March (previous setting was 11 March), Height 178cm, Blood type: AB

Tsuji Kaito 辻 魁斗(つじ かいと) Voice actor: Kakihara Tetsuya 柿原徹也

One of my favourite boys. He is CUTE! Hard worker and tries his best :3 Similar type as Kurusu Sho from Uta no Prince-sama


Birthday: 25 November, Height 175cm, Blood type: B

2) X.I.P.: The sexy idol group.

Date Kyouya 伊達 京也(だて きょうや) Voice actor: Toriumi Kousuke 鳥海浩輔

The typical suave and “host”-type guy XD His lines are peppered with English phrases here and there. Best reference template would be Jinguji Ren from Uta no Prince-sama.


Leader of X.I.P.
Birthday: 16 January, Height 183cm, Blood type: A

Fuwa Kento 不破 剣人(ふわ けんと)Voice actor: Hino Satoshi 日野聡

He was love at first sight. My favourite when I started playing the game. Nope, its not just the body ok… he is so MANLY that his favourite food is MEAT. HAHAHAHA. And he gets to fan-service us most often. Look at that face and bod!!! <3 Yeah. Kento is my fav.


Birthday: 26 June, Height 190cm, Blood type: O

Kanzaki Tooru 神崎 透(かんざき とおる) Voice actor: Eguchi Takuya 江口拓也

He is the little-devil 小悪魔 type :) I LOVE him… right after Kento :D Loves spicy food and hates the sweet stuff. Hates to be called chibi (shorty) since he is the shortest of the 6. Teases you a lot.


Birthday: 23 October, Height 170cm (previous setting was 169cm), Blood type: O

More official screen shots of the game. In the beginning intro, the game is full-voiced. After that, you only hear them utter sounds like, ah~, hahaha, erm, oh, and a few short phrases like “da-ka-ra”, etc…

You get new furniture and items to decorate your restaurant with each mission completed.

And interact with the characters when they pop by. The scenarios are repeated once you completed all of them. They add new scenarios periodically.

Hopefully they release full-length hugging pillow of Kento in the future :P (old habits die hard) And now back to more virtual cooking =_=;;

Touken Ranbu Nendoroids

They sure work fast at churning out goods and figures when they know there’s a winning title in their hands. Behold! Goods and bishie figurines of the hottest Japanese online game, Touken Ranbu is descending upon us! *o* (Not that I really mind… having to wrestle with my willpower to spend more money on cute guys ^^;;)

Touken Ranbu
What is Touken Ranbu about?
Touken Ranbu (刀剣乱舞) is an online web browser game by DMM and Nitroplus. Players assume the role of a Saniwa sage (審神者) who travels into the past to defeat evil forces that are trying to change the course of history. As a sage, you have the ability to breathe life into inanimate objects, including famous historical swords. Your duty is to bring these blades to life, create an army, and defeat the enemies! (Source: http://touken-ranbu.wikia.com/wiki/Touken_Ranbu_Wiki)

Besides the bishie personified swords, rich historical stories, the voice actors are one of the great draws to this game. I first found out about the game when Japanese players started tweeting and sharing about images of these bishie swords. Lots of awesome looking fan art of the sword boys showed up on Pixiv too.

As the game is restricted to Japan only, you need to use a VPN to get a Japanese IP in order to play this game. Find out more here: http://meltdowner.tumblr.com/post/108201848014/so-you-want-to-play-touken-ranbu and http://touken-ranbu.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_Register

I’ve watched the game play videos on youtube and it seems very repetitive and possibly frustrating since a huge part of it is random, from smithing swords, sword drops, using the dice to move ahead and enemy encounters. Although I have already signed up for an account (the music is beautiful by the way) I’ll have to sadly conclude that I just don’t have the luxury of time to spend on it orz;;; You can check out the videos if you’re interested. I think it is highly possible that an anime be made for Touken Ranbu. I’ll watch it when it happens then :P

Various figures and goods of the characters were announced just a few months ago during Wonder Festival Winter 2015 and they’re already available for preorder. This is blazingly fast considering that some figures take more than a year to actually materialise.
