PSP VN's could be 18+. Only consoles ones always All ages. Just for info


Can you name one that has a Z (18+ rating), because I haven't seen one yet. The only games with 18+ in Japan are really violent and have criminal elements and those are localized western releases (GTA for example) save for No More Heroes and the earlier Onechanbara games.

You mean novel and manga, and it's 3D as in you need a 3DTV and have glasses to see 3D.

Huh, knew those existed but for some reason thought it originated as a visual novel. Apparently not.


There is no VN version of Baby Princess, that doesn't mean if it's successful, one will be made, look at Ro-Kyu-Bu, it's a LN that will have a VN adaptation.


Ro-Kyu-Bu is getting a VN? Is it all ages or eroge?


It's PSP only so all ages. It won't get anything more than a D rating from CERO.


Ah well, there goes any interest I had. Thanks though

That there is a lot of Miyazaki this week. Huh.

Top three for DVD is Studio Ghibli films, nice.
Nice to see Madoka is still going strong for Blu-Ray, and for some inexplicable reason Onii-chan is #1.

Next week: I'll know if Baby Princess sold or not and all that publicity and event showings did diddly squat in the BD sales. Still shocked that AT-X is airing the series 2D version in August, maybe it's another advertising purpose.

Didn't even know it was coming out. Doesn't appear in any of the Amazon preorder rankings so I assume it'll won't even rank... maybe barely, since it'll be a fairly slow week. The week after is brutal though.

Btw is the 3D "3DCG" or "put on glasses" 3D (or both)? Not a fan of either, personally, though I do like some of the BP character designs. Saw a lot of art of it a couple years ago or whenever the game was out.


Brutal is an understatement

I'm surprised that BLUE is that good (but then, it's probably because of the anime...). I personally think that Yume~Mugen no Kanata~ is better.

Yay for the rest!!

Orpheus is a good song itself, but personally feel it doesn't match with the anime.

Huh, 9k is not bad by any stretch but given how much of a hit this show seems to be with the fujoshi crowd, and how it's specifically focused on music, I'm a bit surprised it isn't quite a lot higher.

It'll probably add a lot more in the coming weeks.

Can't believe that Onii-chan is #1..
