NSFW!? :D Features some of the male characters you get to have an affair with from Cineria’s Kareshi Igai situation CD series.
I’ve been meaning to write about this situation CD series ever since volume 1 was released in May 2011… And now that the fifth CD is coming out, I guess I better do so in case I procrastinate any further. I’ll have to slowly work my way backwards from the latest one I guess.
Kareshi Igai can be literally translated as “Other than the boyfriend“. This series by doujin/independent CD maker Cineria puts the listener into first-person situations where you are having an affair with the main character. Depending on each character, the listener is either already in a relationship or is married. So far, we’ve got the following situations:
The official pages have more detailed character profiles of the guys:

So far my favourite CDs from the series are Yusa Kouji’s and Miki Shinichirou’s :D but all of them are entertaining and worth listening to. I’ll work on the details of previously released CDs when I can find the time. In general, I find that the stories are well-written and enjoyable. The production values are pretty good. There are no background music to distract the listener and I felt that it actually made the CDs feel more intimate and realistic, even without dummy head mic.
Have you listened to this series? What do you tihnk?
Anyway, besides these good points about the CDs, I’m probably FINALLY motivated to write this because it is an excuse to post the updated sauna pic recently uploaded by Cineria lol~ Check out the Ojisan Paradise April Fools’ version in this post XD
