Summary:
今よりずっと先の未来。
日本列島の南西に位置する碧島(みどりじま)。
かつてそこは自然と人々が共存する豊かな島であった。

しかし日本有数の財閥の1つである「東江財閥」によって買い上げられ、島の約3分の1が豪華な会員制娯楽施設「プラチナ・ジェイル」へと姿を変えた。

強引な開発の犠牲となった島民たちは「旧住民区」に追いやられ、決して裕福とは言えないその場所での生活を余儀なくされていた。

主人公“蒼葉”はその旧住民区にあるジャンクショップ「平凡」
でのアルバイトに日々を費やし、祖母のタエと二人で暮らしていた。

旧住民区の若者たちの間では、とあるゲームが流行していた。
かたやチームを作り、肉弾戦での縄張り争いを日々繰り広げる「リブスティーズ」と、かたや仮想世界を舞台にした電脳
オンラインゲーム「ライム」に熱狂する「ライマー」。
だが、蒼葉はそのどちらにも興味を示すことなく、ただ婆ちゃんとのんびり暮らせればそれでいいと思っていた。

しかし、そんな蒼葉の測り知れない所で
平穏な日々を揺るがす異変は確実に起こりはじめていた――。

Last update: 10 December 2010

Character roughs published on Girls Style web magazine

Codenamed DMMd and title updated as DRAMAtical Murder [ドラマティカル マーダー] these new characters look very refreshing! :D

A more detailed coverage of the character characters will be published in the next issue of Cool-B Magazine (right).

Nitro+Chiral will also be showing the Demo movie of the game during Comiket 79 event (coming this 29-31 December 2010) as well as sell related game goods :) So we may be seeing this game much earlier than we think ^^ Clever of them to continue the ride on the Togainu no Chi anime publicity wave.

Judging from the matrix-ish honeycomb hexagons (lol~) and those programming codes, it’s most probably going to be a sci-fi influenced title. The sillouette of the character also hints at a mecha body suit. Either that or he is just wearing a puffy jacket, big boots and knee-high socks lol~

They have also engaged a new illustrator Honyarara (ほにゃらら) as well. The style of the character silhouette looks very different from that of Sweet Pool illustrator Onizuka Seiji.

What do you think? Her website: http://nantala-kantala.sakura.ne.jp/ and pixiv page: http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=35944

I wonder when it’ll be launched… they usually start promoting a game at least 6 months before launch, so my guess is sometime from June 2011 to December 2011.

  1. The consumer name was announced on dmmd.jp to be DMMd re:code (ahh clever) and on platform PS Vita <3 I wonder why they chose PS Vita though, it doesn't seem quite… accessible.
    I'm so happy the title seems to be doing so well, makes me hyper excited for more promising figures and merchs. My wallet would be a bit less thrilled though…

    1. Since they wanted a portable version, I think nintendo would never allow this kind of content xD Togainu itself was for PSP.
      >:Even tought I aaaaaalmost have an psvita, I’ll be unable to play, since my boy friend spent half and hour talking about how annoying it would be to let me borrow his system and chance the region to japanese, and them recovering his american games alter and I understand nothing about this…

      ;v; but, yeah, mechandise, more and more merchandise. It’ll be awesome.

    2. @Senkai: huh… I don’t own a PSP Vita either ^^;; I’ll just buy first and think about how to play it later orz;; \(^o^)/ yay for more merchandise too!

    3. @kumalein: I don’t have a Vita (or PSP for the matter) either ^^;; but that didn’t stop me from buy their PSP releases orz;;; I guess I’ll still shell out $$$ for it when it comes out anyway. That’s just in case I do get my hands on a console in the future and the games are sold out :P Keep those awesome figures coming XD (quietly saving up $$$ to get ready)

  2. …… I… spent some time trying to figure if I went somehow to an older page or…

    There’s really a new DMMd game … @_@ That’s so… Well, Togainu no Chi for PSP wasn’t bad, even without the +18 scenes. Without the +18 scenes I was able to play it during our family christmas party two years ago xD
    They’re trying hard to explore DMMd to all the money resources aren’t they? I hope they don’t mess up overdoing it.

    (WHY THEY DON’T JUST RELEASE ONE COIN FIIIIGUREEEES >___> They’d be sooo beauty near my Lamento set ;v; *daydreaming*)

    1. @Senkai: I’m sure the one-coins are in the works! Aoba’s nendoroid should be up for preorder soon and a new 1/7 scale figure has been announced too. :D hope the anime turns out well. Would probably order the game when it comes out too.

    2. I hope a re-run of Aoba’s scale happens with the anime >: I was unable to get it last time (even with the huuuuge time to pre-order it.)
      New game, new anime, the perfect time to release all this kind of things!
      I’m probably getting the nendoroid, tought I disliked a biiit some details (as the eyes painting, all the photos I saw made them looks lacking life, not a beauty and bright yellow…) but one coins are so cute and usually comes with so much characters, I can’t help but wishing them to happen (also, it looks the closer I’ll get of a Sei’s figure :’D poor baby)

    3. @Senkai: I hope your wish comes true!i think there are more opportunities for reruns besides the anime too, like when they release the new 1/7 character etc. For example there was a rerun of Izaya when it was release time for Shizuo’s figure.

      I think the boys will definitely get a one-coin treatment. Its tradition! XD

    4. @Senkai: As long as it is not an official announcement, there’s still a chance… maybe limited edition or something orz;

    1. @erika: You can order from http://www.comicomi-studio.com/ which ships internationally but last checked it is out of stock. *_*
      If you’re willing to pay a bit more for a proxy buyer like http://www.fromjapan.co.jp/?lang=en to get the first press limited edition for you, you can still get if from Stellaworth
      1) http://www.stellaworth.co.jp/shop/item.php?item_id=nqHYTYHqYVk
      2) http://www.stellaworth.co.jp/shop/item.php?item_id=MQiFZFijiZ4

      Hope this helps! :D

  3. Doesn’t Amazon Japan ship internationally? Sure, the shipping will be expensive, but at least you’ll get the game?
    If it doesn’t ship internationally I’m going to try to order it with Celga from Livret because I really want that poster.

    1. @vividNecromancer: Amazon Japan generally ships international but doesn’t ship software to my country :) I’ve ordered the Animate Japan version through a proxy cos I wanted the freebies.

  4. Lol I wonder if I can preorder from Animate and then pick it up during the summer time HAHAH. I’m going to Tokyo in July but this game comes out in March …

    1. @Suimu: wah *envious* I don’t think they’ll hold the goods for you for 3 months tho ^^;;; or u can pray that the game is delayed further lol

  5. I’ve been wanting to ask for a while but always forgotten in the end, anyway, do you know if ZIZZ will be doing the music for this as well? Considering they’ve always used them before you could think so, but I’m not sure if they could pull of something to fit DMMd. Got any info on it?

  6. I wasn’t too impressed with the new art style at first, especially since I LOVED the style of TnC/Lamento/SP, but seeing the sample images of the pre-order goodies gives me a little more hope. I really like the image of Aoba and Clear~ From what I can see, Clear looks rather cute without the mask. ^^

  7. I’ve always felt that Togainu, Lamento and Sweet Pool were some kind of alternative universe to each other (especially since they often re-use seiyuus like Hatano Wataru and Midorikawa in the games) and when you line them up with DMMd it feels very…off?
    I was thinking maybe the two games in the future will have that sort of belonging with DMMd, know what I mean?

    1. @Yumii: Yeah you have a very good point! I don’t see how DMMd world gels with the previous three too :D But I’m sure the creatives at N+C will figure something out lol~

  8. I totally want this game but I’m soo broke ; u ;
    Also, just listened to Clear’s voice sample. Is it just me or does it sound like Suzuken? :O
    Hnnnggg, Clear is one of the reasons I want to buy this * – *
    Anyways, thank you for all these posts about it, really helps! C:

  9. OMG!!! Ao-chan with Clear freebie is the most attractive one! XD its so refreshing with that sky-blue color and the panorama! *dead* and also the others freebies~ *drools till flooding* I can’t stop myself from put some $$$$ out… (っ╥﹏╥)っ╬

    1. @Mito: If I have a choice of only one, I’ll go for something that has a drama CD or the digital contents set :D The artworks may appear in their future artbooks, so we can still get our hands on them later!

  10. Seems that 沖の靖広 (konjaku) is Takahashi Hiroki, internet isn’t giving me any other leads so will just have to wait for the sample voice ;-). Personally this game looks a bit too cheery to be coming from a company like Nitro+ but I’ll try to be open-minded. Maybe they are going for a heavy (togainu), light (lamento), heavy (Sweet pool), light (Dmmd) pattern here, though there are also the cell phone games so I dunno…

    1. @Momogoldfish: That’ll be awesome! I think you’re right! *updates post* Takahashi Hiroki would sound fab as Koujaku.

      Ah~ that’s very perceptive of you. There’s a high possibility of it being a lighter game.

  11. AWWWWWW~ but never heard of the new cast… (o_o) or i should say i totally lost… YAY! i should play this game because it’ll out next year~ *Laugh* its sci-fi!!!! *kyaaa-ing* looks like AO-chan different with Nitro+CHiRAL’s other game… he look MOAR lively~ :D

    1. @Mito: These are all fake names but even then, they are mostly NEW fake names lol~ so I don’t recognise most of them. They’ll be nice surprises like Omerta I bet!

    1. iced_wine: oh no… what happened *_*

      Yeah they’re pretty cutting edge I would say and almost always one step ahead of the competition :) cos now they’re doing cyberpunk Yaoi game lol~ And I’m quite sure it hasn’t been done before.

  12. This totally made my day!
    Seems like the main character is going to be outgoing/spunky type of character (Nice change from the usual quiet/cool type of uke that they’ve used before)

    I’m still unsure about the title tho..”DRAMAtical murder”? in space? lol

    Also; Does the main character have long hair or short? I zoomed in and noticed it looks like his hair is really long but it might just be the jacket?

    1. @Yumii: Yeah! It seems like a big departure from their usual main character uke type ^^ He looks like a bright, smart ass type lol~

      Or maybe hacker/virtual world theme? :D The other characters look pretty cool too. I just noticed that the four finger puppets on the magazine cover are designed after the other characters! Very clever!

      I think he has short hair? Just a bit longer than the shoulders probably :3

  13. @ponytale – i got the books from yesasia.
    Aww thats so cute. I was wondering why he is always wearing his glasses.

    Thanks for explaining the manga story! poor elle. ;o;
    i can’t wait to get the other mangas when my budget is stable.

    1. @sigma: hehe yeah I would probably have a complex too if somebody I like thinks I look like his ex and keeps trying to make me look MORE like her OTL;;; so that’s why people say that it’s best to not say anything about your ex-es to your current partner lol~

      :3 Mmm take your time. The manga won’t run away XDD

  14. @sigma – yeah, there’s no big loss cos Shangri La’s plot went bonkers somewhere around the middle till the end.

    XD That’s great! You managed to get the books at a good price? Mmm generally Elle is very fond of Jack because he looks almost exact like his creator. In the manga, it is said that it is also probably one of the sub-conscious reasons why Jack keeps wearing his sunglasses X3 He didn’t want Elle to look at him that way.

    Elle is an extremely advanced and capable android but he is emotionally unstable due to some events in his past. So his memories were suppressed so that he would not hurt himself. In the manga, Jack takes up a bodyguard job (if I remember correctly) on a planet that still had dinosaurs (dragons). Elle followed him there and he discovered that he had been on that planet years ago but he can’t remember clearly what he did there… This story uncovers the mystery surrounding his past…

    Yeah, Elle is so cute XD He acts like a baby whenever he is with Jack X3

  15. Yea it started off so nice. I never got that far though i think i lost interest after a few episodes. : (

    Aww~ Thank you for your encouraging words! ;o;

    ~oh i got in two Elle and Jack manga by Reiko(the planet with sleeping dragon)! Even if i didn’t understand what was going on i loved reading through the pictures! Elle is so dang cute when hes serious an then cries out of no where!;v;
    My favorite part in the whole manga was when he hugged jack an never let go.(hugging him for many manga panels!) XD

  16. Her style does look like Shangri-la.

    I don’t have pivix account….I’d feel so lonely on there if i had one. I’m really not that good. I need to stop procrastinating with my art…. ;///;

    I hope that series he is working on (worldend pink dad) is the next chiral project after this one.

    lol i also thought it was Setsuna from gundam 00! I think there is actually a figure of him with that pose too. XD

    1. @sigma: :D yeah I liked the art of the anime but the story was kinda… disappointing towards the end. It started off with such promise…

      Aww~ *hugz* don’t procastinate! I’m waiting to buy your very own art book dearie! :D How about doing one drawing per month?

      worldend pink dad* That’ll be awesome huh! :D So much potential!

      Lol~lol can’t wait to see the actual CG of the game!!!

  17. Cool! I love her artworks! And if it’s a sci-fi/fantasy-ish theme it would suit the game. I think it’s refreshing to see different styles for different game since it makes the games more unique.

  18. Omg that’s one of my favorite artist!! *o*
    Now i can’t wait this makes me happy! (B-but why didn’t they use sweet pool artist again? is it because of the sci-fi theme? They just wanted to try something new/or new artist?;_; I loved his works i was hoping to still see his stuff in another game….)
    I wonder why all the game companies are changing artist like crazy? (Vivid color an there recent release, This, inc…)

    The silhouette reminds me of Gundam lol!
    Wha if its sci-fi i’m betting there’s tentacles surprise *shot*;.
    (a sci-fi from NitroChiral is going to be interesting.)

    1. @sigma: wow seriously? That’s great! Her works are pretty! :D Reminds me of Shangri La’s artists’ style. Do you have a pixiv account? Maybe you should open one! You never know maybe one day you’ll be asked by BL game companies to do their illustrations :D If I’m not wrong, Vivid Color’s Nessa no Rakuen artist also has a pixiv account ;)

      Mmm I hope Onitsuka Seiji is doing some other project with Nitro+Chiral and not leaving them yet *_*

      I think the companies probably want to give a fresh feel to their works and grab our short attention spans. ^^;;; HAHAHAHA yeah I think we’ll get tentacles XDD since it isn’t done often in BL games huh. So far the nicely done ones are Lamento and Tamayura? And my first reaction to the silhouette was “Gah~ that looks like Setsuna from Gundum 00!” too lol~
