I have a confession. For the most part, I don’t like when fangirls pair up painfully straight male characters with no homosexual inclinations or mistake true animosity for “sexual tension.” The furthest I’ll regularly go is US x UK in Hetalia and well… Himaruya EGGS me on with that anyway. As a result, Hetalia makes up the largest part of my modest doujinshi collection, followed by Togainu no Chi and Lamento. Once jpqueen went under (sob), I stopped buying doujinshi since it became too much of a hassle and cost prohibitive.
I was pawing through my doujinshi and came across a little gem I had forgotten–one that managed to convincingly ship a pairing that I really didn’t care for, nor had felt the subtext, in less than 16 pages. The doujinshi in question was a Persona 3 (original P3) doujinshi named Samui Yoru ni Miru Yume by Shikibu Akira. I wasn’t even interested in buying P3 dj (I have 3 total); I think I bought it because it was cheap and had nice colors on the cover. It turned out to be a great find.
Gutters from hell warning–no way I’m bending this baby! As a side note, I’m collecting larger scans and even some pages I don’t end up using in entries in my tumblr, so if you’d like to see nicer pics, head on over there.
A few people have recently posted the AkaAka opening on Youtube. Here’s a link. You can also download a copy of the opening on the HaccaWorks* homepage. Very nice. There’s some new CGs and even a couple minor characters that hadn’t been revealed yet. HaccaWorks* already announced on their homepage that they have no new material for sale for the summer Comiket, so we’ll have to be satisfied with this.
#@$# I want to play this game so badly and get an ending where Sagano strings up Yue and makes him into his new muffler…
…what? I have issues.
Akaya Akashiya Ayakashino (あかやあかしやあやかしの)
A preview of HaccaWorks* supernatural visual adventure
Akaya Akashiya Ayakashino (also known as AkaAka) is a visual novel and the second game produced by HaccaWorks*. AkaAka has a unspecified release date and two demos (in Japanese of course) available for download on their website (free and legal!). There is very little information about AkaAka in English and this preview will fill some of that gap. The following information was collected and distilled from the two demos by myself, so there’s some room for interpretation, but it’s a good look at what we know so far. Hopefully this preview will introduce AkaAka to even more people, encourage or help those thinking about playing it, and most of all, find someone else to wildly fangirl with me about it when it’s released!
