Stray Little Cat? I read that not knowing it was a spin off....

Waiting for the PSP port for the main storyline...

Anything but that, please! Yes I'd rather have childhood friends lose than go omnibus. Just kills all the romantic conflict, as knowing everyone is going to win removes the need to root for someone (ie. the very definition of shipping).

If that's your only worry, then you should be optimistic rather than pessimitic about Chisato's chances. I need to double check my 2011 list, but its something like on the order of 4 losses in around 24 series for when childhood friend appears in it just from last year.

Which reminds me, I really need to update my thread, but so much to do and not enough free time.

Even blad animation and generic plot won't stop me from enjoying Yuu, Kaori, Mingosu, Mai and Nakamurax2. Just from VA i'm totally inclined towards Satsuki and Mifuyu. Will see hopefully there will be a pleasant surprise.

This happens far more often to the "other" girl actually rather than the childhood friend.

An All or nothing guy huh?

I don't think this is the type of show/VN to go for that sort of thing anyway.

Maybe the only anime I've watched were the ones where the childhood friend loses. I'd ask you to list me the 24, but I think that'd be off-topic.

I suppose reading the manga adaptation didn't help my fear either, because in the early chapters, it felt like Oojima thought Chisato was a nuisance and he just happened to be stuck with her. I don't know how it progresses since not much of it is scanlated, so maybe it does change.

Btw is there an all-age version? Since on the radio they often get character "admiration" letters from fans. They definetely can't talk about rated stuff.

than pretty wierd that they mention how certain character is popular. It is pretty much admitting you voiced adult version. Listening to radio episode with Mai right now. Have to admit her normal voice kind of make your brain melt...Maybe I should review my character poll.

Well, I think there's a sort of tongue-in-cheek thing going on there, but keep in mind that there are also the two manga series currently out, so some of the fans of the characters could come from that too. At the very least, that could be the excuse that they use if they really needed one. Still, knowing they kept the same voices as the original game is actually a good marketing point as well, even though they can't admit it outright, so they play this little game.

Most eroge usually keep their same staff over all versions of it. So it's not surprising and is at least tacitly implied.

Besides, R-rated or not, game is still the game everything came from. Can't stop fans now no?

So if anything, Chitose has higher chance to win because these manga/anime/VN etc, typically favor the childhood friend as pointed out earlier. Shuffle

Rassa frassa. After reading over the thread it looks like the two girls who caught my eye in the pv are the least mentioned to be "in the running": i.e. Michiru and Isara. When it comes to these adaptations I always seem to invest in the ones that lose.

Hmm ... guess I like Michiru the most at first glance, while knowing nothing whatsoever about the original source at all. :\

That list is very fishy, for example the childhood friend in Horizon is
Spoiler for Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon:


In Haganai (at least to the point I know) there has been no resolution... same for Ben-tou, IS, Baka Test and a couple more. There are also some plain mistakes, for example in Penguin Drum,
Spoiler for Mawaru Penguin Drum:


Finally, LOL@AnoHana, since all the damn cast were childhood friends

In games, there are multiple routes, but in anime/manga the usual is that the childhood friend loses, as happens IRL too... but there are exception (Bible Black ,Nana to Kaoru), only to verify the rule.

Last edited by AmeNoJaku; 2012-07-04 at 21:51. Reason: sorry, didn't consider that fact about horizon to be a spoiler, since it's part of the character summary

Eh... your evaluation on some of those series is somewhat inaccurate.

Spoiler for major multi series spoilers:


I think the track record of animanga isn't as clear cut as you seem to make it.

The animation to this show reminds me of something ridiculously low budget... Which is disappointing, because the original art and magazine scans look very nice. The characters' movements remind me of something that is not from 2011-2012. Bleh...

As for the plot, I'm willing to give this show up to about 3-5 episodes to see if it gets any better.
