Shin Koihime Musou is a retelling on Koihime Musou with an extended cast and updated battle system. In Shin Koihime Musou, you have to choose one of the three groups at the beginning and the story progresses from there. There are some common events, but overall, they're not really the same. You don't need to play the first before the second.

I've played through half of Shin Koihime Musou while my friend Zen played the original version. The battle system definitely got better in the new game. However, since there's so many characters in Shin, there's not enough screentime for everyone, ending up with many paired routes. Due to this fact, most of the original game's stories were longer and better. Oh, and the loli twins aren't in Shin.

I think the game is ok though. The parallels with actual events from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms keeps things interesting.

I see, so it's like an improved version of the same/similar story with advanced battle system and more characters. Sounds interesting enough. I definitely take a looksie how does it seems like.
I'm not entirely sure about MG releasing it in the end, as they didn't mention it at their announcement. Oh well...
Spoiler:
At least they mentioned buying fantranslations if the circumstances are so, which means they are sensible enough to cooperate I hope. However they didn't answer to the Sonozaki Twins' email-inquiry yet, so I don't know what's going to happen in the end. We'll see.

New game from clochette. I happened to visit their site again (which is not blocking foreign IPs yet fyi, along with Marmalade and Skyfish) and saw their announcement, to which I thought, "YEEEEEESSSS!!!!!!!!!!"

Kamipani had its flaws, but overall it was good and Megumi's arc is very moving. More from clochette and more of Shintaro's awesome art is always welcome!


Interesting thing though is that the EOCS' heavy restrictions on eroge content goes into effect on October, which is most certainly when this game will be released or afterwards and it's most certainly already been under development for a long time, so I wonder how clochette will deal with this (same with marmalade, who also have a game that's coming out in October).

I, sadly, haven't played a Clochette game yet, but I guess I would wonder why you think this game would be affected by those restrictions. Even the keywords proposed are not so draconian that they'd prevent normal school-themed romantic comedies from being released (and, without knowing more, that's what this looks like to me...?). I'm sure this and most of the other big name-brand games will see only minor discernible changes, if any.

I have yet to read Suzunose7 when they announced the FD and now they announce a complete new game!? Businesses must be doing really well for them.

There's a list of to-be-banned items and incest and group sex are two of them. In other words, goodbye Sana, goodbye Harem Ending! AAARGH!!!

Oh and there was another bit about the only sexual position allowed being consensual missionary. Booooooring.

The latter is definitely a lie (reminds me of the lie people believed when "shoujo" was on the list - "oh no, only yaoi!" Stupid people... ), and the former is a definite over-statement. The "incest" issue has been dealt with in this sort of fiction since time immemorial, and "group sex" needs a lot more definition to know what specifically they consider problematic. It wouldn't surprise me if this is more about "gang sex" (a.k.a. gang rape) as opposed to consensual sex scenes with multiple partners.

In other words, don't believe all of what you've read, especially on certain sources. Yes, some things are being restricted, but there'll be plenty of material for the more conventional/popular sorts of ero-games going forward. These sorts of lies and half-truths that are being spread are just Chicken Little material.

Was just informed a while ago of a possible fandisc to Da Capo II Plus Communication/Situation, named Da Capo II Fall in Love. And this is right after they did Da Capo II For You.

Then again, one of the staples of VNs nowadays is that Circus will always make Da Capo spinoffs no matter what. Kinda like how TypeMoon games (written by Nasu) will always have references to magic, or how Navel favors the artistry of Suzuhira and Nishimata, perhaps?

And I'm not saying that Circus making more Da Capo games is bad. Nope.

Yes, that fandisk was confirmed in last month's Dengeki G's Magazine, and it's more-or-less the counterpart to Spring Celebration but this time featuring the 6 new heroines that were added in Plus Situation/Communication. And I'm not really annoyed by it either in the sense that all of the fandisks have had pretty respectable content quotas with new stories and art. But it sort of makes me wonder if next after this and D.C.V. could be D.C. III? I guess we'll see...

One of our VN staples isn't that Circus make Da Capo spinoffs but that they milk it beyond all realms of possibility.

Holy hell! Minori's Eden* has one of the most awesome Opening ever produced in my opinion:

Shinkai truly gets better every single time. Amazing. And as a form of marketing, it never fails to hook me. Sigh.

Hm... Was he involved with the above Video, Dagger? (As far as I can tell) his name is not in the video at all, and some say he hasn't mentioned anything about the OP in his blog either.
(Still my jaw is literally hanging open watching that vid. Truly remarkable work whoever made it.)

Muh... A disappointment from the great praise I read. ef's first OP had a lot more impact. (Better than the 2nd ef's OP at least?)
In various parts, looks a lot like ef's movie. Though I guess it is because the creator is the same, so it can't be helped... Let's just say.
The song....... meh... The movie synchro makes it sound better though.

The visuals are amazing, but it has the same ear-grating vocals as ef's opening.

Game looks interesting though, I'll definitely keep an eye on it.

I think it's most probable that he's simply adopted a pseudonym (for the same reason nearly everyone adopts pseudonyms in this industry), but otherwise I suppose this could also be the work of some of his students/assistants/etc. Either way, the style is unmistakable.

For some reason, they left out a director's credit.

Otherwise, the animation staff is the same as before. Shinkai no longer creates the actual movie visuals (only storyboards and colour specification) since they have specialists working on the CG camera work, backgrounds, and character animation. There's now a clear distinction between director and production team.

Recently started on Kazoku Keikaku, and I'm liking what I've gone through so far, which is only Aoba's route. Wakamoto's VAing is funny as usual, and the route's emotional intensity made me feel like I was going through Yume Miru Kusuri again.

Well I'm a tiny bit disappointed in Kazoku Keikaku / Family Project to be honest. It's not really motivating so far for me personally. Finding out stuff like who's stealing the panties and other such things are kinda boring me, and most of the characters are not really my cup of tea either to be frank. Albeit I admit that Hiroshi is funny on a few occasions. With the exception of him, the Manager and Masumi, I find the others quite meh.
The main character is a bit too rude and illogical quite often, and I don't really like that the choices I make aren't really important (the guy is like "LOL I won't do that", but then why did you give me a choice?). Well I'm still not sure how far I am, so I imagine once the emotional stuff comes, I'm probably going to like it a bit more.

Yeah, makes you wonder why exactly they give the choice if you're still going to go down that path. That's minus pts for the story system, but I'm fine with the rest.

Finally finished Tayutama and its fandisk, so its time to move on the Princess Lover.
