(Erika is not pleased with the delay…)

VN Review: Kanon (Key)

This review for Kanon is way overdue. To the point where it’s kind of sad, really.

January Arrivals

So this was meant to be an “expected arrivals” post, but I slacked off and didn’t finish it in time ( ; A;)

First up is the Golden Overload Trio!

Umineko no naku koro ni chiru: Twilight of the golden witch (うみねこのなく頃に散:Twilight of the golden witch)
(img from amiami)
episode 8 of the Umineko series which ostensibly brings the story to a close and answers all the questions Ryuukishi is going to answer XD; (until Umineko “Rei” gets released, perhaps…)

Golden Overload!

Just got the information regarding the Winter Comiket Umineko releases:

Naturally, we have
Umineko no naku koro ni chiru: Twilight of the golden witch (うみねこのなく頃に散:Twilight of the golden witch)
(img from amiami – preorders open on Nov 29th!)
episode 8 of the Umineko series which will likely bring the story to a close and answer all the questions Ryuukishi is going to answer XD;

(but that’s not all…)

Umineko PS3 Adaptation Announced!

Umineko no naku koro ni will have a PS3 adaptation done by Alchemist, who also did the adaptations for the Higurashi games.
うみねこのく頃にはPS3バージョンになりそうです!ひぐらしが作ったアルケミストは作りそうです。

Although I have a certain fondness for the original sprites (Maria and Gohda’s faces in particular just don’t come across the same way in other styles, somehow), I’m excited for this release and have already placed a pre-order through amiami.jp :hee: (The 15% discount on the price definitely didn’t hurt!)
オリジナルのたちえが気に入った(特にまりあと郷田の顔がほかの描き方に全然違うになると思います)けど、私はこのゲームソフトにすごく楽しみにしています!もう予約しましたしね :hee:

The best part about this announcement is that the original bgm tracks will be used :uehato:
最高のニューズはサウンドノベルに使った音楽が使いそうです! :uehato:

It’s just not Umineko without them :nibaihato:
あれがないなら、やっぱり「うみねこ」じゃないでしょうね! :nibaihato:

I’ve also placed a pre-order for note.13 of the anime adaptation but since there aren’t any good promo images for that yet I’ll save it for another post~
あとはノート。13のDVDを予約しましたが、今はあまりいい写真が見つからないので、まだそのことを書かないほうがいいと思うのです。

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep preorder

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep


(image from the amazon pre-order page)
(イメージはアマゾンの要約ページから)

I’ve been on a little bit of a pre-order binge lately, and this is my latest: KH:Birth by Sleep for PSP. I love the Kingdom Hearts series – I’ve been following it ever since the first PS2 game came out in the US (somewhere in 2002 I think?).
最近ちょっと要約買いすぎで、これは昨日要約したの:PSPのキングダム・ハーツ:バース・バイ・スリープ。アタシ、キングダム・ハーツが大好きです!最初のPS2ゲームがアメリカで出た時からずっと好きでしたよ~(あれは2002年ぐらいだったかしら)

After I played through the game, I really wanted to hear the Japanese voice acting, so I bought KH: Final Mix (and a shiny silver Japanese PS2!)….
ゲームをやった後、日本語の声優がどうしても聞きたかったから、ファイナル・ミックス(とキラキラして銀色の日本のPS2)を買っちゃいました…

Umineko no naku koro ni

… and why you should read it.

As “Umineko no naku koro ni” moves steadily towards the end of its run, I find it harder and harder to explain why I’m completely in love with this series without giving major brain-melting spoilers.

Umineko OP video

But I’m going to try.
Because I think this is definitely a series that should be given serious consideration.
