Anime & Eroge 2D vs 3D Mapped

Anime & Eroge 2D vs 3D Mapped

A scholar of real world places used as bases for anime scenes has compiled this extensive map using Google Maps, complete with comparison photographs in each locality and covering a wide variety of series, and some, such as Haruhi, are covered in great depth.

It is a very interesting resource.

Incongruous Witches

Photofunia Witches

2channers have been exerting themselves with gusto trying to secure the most convincing yet incongruous juxtaposition of a Strike Witch with a (relatively) everyday scene. Their efforts are reproduced here:

Better Girls – Crack Graphic

Better Girls – Crack Graphic

Here we have Crack Graphic presenting the webcomic “Better Girls”, but what I suspect are more compelling to the vast majority of readers are the superbly eccentric character designs displayed. Original, and quite interesting to boot, though by no means prolific.

Cake Festival 2008 Summer Digest

Cake Festival 2008 Summer Digest

There’s plenty of coverage of Wonder Festival, and a fairly full digest is already published, but not too many sites actually bothered to prepare a delicious cake figure gallery… except one notable site, of course. Also plenty of /d/ type figures. Intrigued?

Ultimate Melissa Hentai Review

Ultimate Melissa Hentai Review

The gorgeous new Melissa Seraphy nendoroid figure was touched upon earlier, but what has to be the definitive and by far most amusing review/figure manga is brought to us by Choudai, creator of the noted (or perhaps notorious) Fate condensed/milk saga. Be sure to check it out if you’re looking for some figure news with a different slant…

Soul Calibur Cosplay

Soul Calibur Cosplay

Miku Miku Calibur? It appears the recently released Soul Calibur IV has a vastly improved character creation and clothing engine, and not just in terms of the underwear visible when you tear off your opponent’s clothing.

Enthusiastic fans have been quick to seize upon this to thrust their favourite characters into the fray, so here are a few of their more successful efforts. Above is a rather finely executed Kenshin, of Rurouni Kenshin, but the obligatory Hatsune Miku is included below.

Sukumizu Hall of Fame

Sukumizu Hall of Fame, Featuring Kurasuke; also gratuitous Louise

A tournament of sorts to establish which representations of girls in school swimwear were most accomplished took place recently, providing plenty of exposure to artists, and plenty of fine images to peruse.

The contest was soon decided, and both amongst the images selected for special praise, and those simply contending, there are many fine images worth checking out; I’ve also taken the liberty of introducing my own favourite, so please do take a look, particularly if you are a fan of Louise

For the Lady Erogamer

8 (33)『Phantom -PHANTOM OF INFERNO-』Nitro+ / Phantom of Inferno

An interesting site offering recommendations of mainstream eroge likely to appeal to lady gamers (avoiding titles obsessing over male homosexual antics) comes to my attention; the list makes interesting reading, and is of course of interest to lady erogamers looking to enjoy an engaging story and fine art, as well as many male erogamers too, judging by the list.

Eroge Through The Ages (Downloadable)

Eroge Through The Ages (a lot more than these are available)

Two very interesting sites looking at the development of eroge in a historical context come to my attention. Firstly, and most strikingly, long time visual novel producer Alicesoft has actually officially authorised the distribution of many of their older titles (1990s) as abandonware; you can find them for direct download or torrent download, collected here. Secondly, there is a compendium of older eroge collected nicely with some CG (see below).

Seiyuu Healing

Seiyuu Healing - 応援します

Listen to the beautiful and immaculately trained voices of a variety of seiyuu in various characters, each offering “healing” (scolding, rebuking and reprimanding are more appropriate in some cases, however) words to the listener: such is the free service on offer at oenshimasu.com (応援します – ouen shimasu! – I’ll back you up!).

Old Photos of Japan

Old Photos of Japan - Mount Fuji dominates the view of a village

A rather nice site offering vintage photographic expositions on the Japan of the Meiji, Taisho and Showa periods comes to my attention; the prosaically named Old Photos of Japan offers a daily photograph along with some nice explanatory text putting the picture in context.

Many of the photos are extremely tasteful, so whether you’re a lover of Japan, history, photography, or perhaps even scantily dressed young ladies, you may do well to take a look.

Idolmaster World Service

The Ancient Religion of the Idolmaster enjoys worldwide adherence

Non-Japanese speaking Idolmaster fans may be interested to see this English language (or at least Engrish) Idolmaster site “The Idolmaster MAD World Service”, billing itself as “The Gentleman’s Guide to the Idolmaster”. They serve up regular introductions to the latest MADs doing the rounds on NicoNico Douga, and have plenty of supplementary information and guides, which should be decipherable.

Probably most notably, and usefully (not to mention vexingly, for those of us with incompatible hosts), they have embedded Nico videos, so you can enjoy the latest without having to visit Nico itself, or make an account.
