A big thank you to everyone who attended our panel tonight at Anime Central! Do we have a lot of announcements to cover or what?
First up, our huge new hardcopy lineup set for release in July, just in time for Anime Expo! All titles are available for pre-order right now!
First, we have ClockUp’s notorious erotic thriller, euphoria! Available as a stand-alone edition and bundled with a limited-edition wallscroll (which can also be purchased separately). If you pre-order either version, you’ll receive a copy of the OST as well (while supplies last!).
Next, our first title from Alicesoft, Beat Blades Haruka! The hardcopy comes as a two-disk set including a 31 track OST and can be purchased in a bundle with a limited-edition wallscroll or alone (or just the wallscroll).
All of the new hardcopies will start shipping on July 1st and be available at Anime Expo!
We’ve also got a number of new titles up for pre-order right now!
The second Kindred Spirits drama CD, Friendship Plans is now available for pre-order! It’ll be out on our site and Steam next week!
We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting the next installment of Higurashi––well the third chapter, Tatarigoroshi, will be out on June 24th on our site and Steam! Pre-order now to snag it for 10% off!
Onto our new acquisitions!
Some of you may have caught the announcement at the end of The House in Fata Morgana already, but to make it official: we’ve picked up the prequel, A Requiem for Innocence as well! A Requiem for Innocence is a tale set prior to the stories of Fata Morgana. A young girl, “the daughter of God” whose blood is claimed to provide miraculous healing powers, waits kneeling at the chopping block before a young man steps in to intervene and rescue her! This “happy” tale will share the very first chapter of the young girl’s life.
Our second new acquisition is our brand-new partnership with Waffle to bring you Funbag Fantasy (also known as Kyonyuu Fantasy)! A lewd, tongue-in-cheek fantasy adventure, Funbag Fantasy is all about keeping unreasonable medieval armor design and shoulder pain abreast with sword and sorcery!
Lute Hende is a simple man who likes simple things like bread and boobs. He was never ambitious enough to seek wealth or aspire for fame and glory, but that never stopped him from spotting D-cups from the other side of town. The most notable thing he ever achieved in life was to get into the Kingdom of Edelland’s prestigious Royal Knight Academy. Unfortunately, he spent most of his time ogling his classmate Isis’s chest before finally graduating the last of his class.
Lute is the kind of person most people would call a loser or a good-for-nothing. Though he isn’t the type to let such insults bother him, he was now a knight and that meant girls, girls, girls! Or at least that’s what it would have meant if he didn’t get sent to the backwater province of Boan. Little does he know, his relegation to the middle of nowhere would put him in the middle of a conspiracy to overthrow the crown, and between the busty mounds of a man-eating succubus bent on sucking the life out of him.
And last, but absolutely not least we can finally reveal our special guests for Anime Expo!
First up is the very talented concept artist, visual novel illustrator, graphic designer, and manga artist, Ms. Shigeo Hamashima! Her work is featured in Eroge!, euphoria, and No, Thank You!!! just to name a few!
And we’re also bringing Sakai “nbkz” Nobukazu of minori over! nbkz has been a member of minori since its founding, has acted as director for several of its productions, and as a producer for its complete library. His role is that of a Quality Controller (Checker) whom guarantees the quality of each and every one of minori’s products. He works hard behind the scenes, deeply involved with the initial and final stages of product development. His most famous works are, ef – a fairy tale of the two. and eden*.
And that’s it for this convention! Keep an eye on our announcements and convention schedule page for more information about upcoming events! We’ll be at Fanime next week and then Anime Expo in July!
