    And once again, the line between RPG and eroge is blurring.

      This is eroge? I thought this was normal in japan by now. I mean, we haven’t really seen any ero related stuff on the game itself…

      I seriously can’t consider this eroge O.o so i think you are giving it too much weight, it’s just, a kinda pervy way to call attention, really japanese-like, that’s what they love, that’s what they do.

        Different phone cards from retailers were a typical practice for hentai games. I know because… well, I just know. Anyway, it seems that their use for RPGs has started only recently, essentially a couple years or so.

          Haha, i dont think i wanna get into the reason on why you know xD.

          I can already see kids hiding those cards they find on the street :P

    The one from animate would be my choice, or the bromide one.

    Holy damn……damn! They look so great if I was an anime dude right now I would be bleeding fountains out of my nose…~
    The AmiAmi one is my favorite, but I would pick Magical Garden, Famitsu, Sofmap, Gamers and Wonder Goo as well. The Desk mat especially sounds great!
    Ho damn I can’t stop right now, beautiful art of even more beautiful girls…that’s the reason why I still live!!

    “…library card with a picture of Gyro.” His name was romanized as Jayro in the trailer.

    Hmm, AmiAmi, Girls Messe and Famitsu for me.

      Thanks for pointing that out. Will fix. :)

  • Zero_Destiny

    Well if I lived in Japan I would go to Gamers XD
    A3 is second choose and then rounding out my trifecta of ecchi bonuses will of course be AmiAmi and Magical Garden. ^_^ Yes the money I would waste.

    • http://blackwings.net Sayoko

      I would totally pick Gamers too. Who wouldn’t want some delicious twintail S&M police cosplaying loli hanging from their wall/ceiling/any other place imaginable?

      I do not kid, I would!

  • Barrit

    Dat phone card.

    The artist really needs to release an artbook. His/her art is just stunning.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks like japan loves those telephone cards. VC III, No More Heroes 2, and now this.

    not that i mind though :D

    The word “Sample” is now my mortal enemy.

      It’s the mortal Enemy of anyone since the beginning of sample watermarks on art my friend, and it’s a war we may not see the end of…

          I have to go back an play it, still at chapter 1…But it’s great as always! <3

    2nd card: “Oh hi…excuse me…I didn’t know you were using this shower…sorry. Oh I can join you, you say? Don’t mind if I do thanks”

  • Darkrise

    I want the one from Gamers… And Amiami. xD

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    Wow, who was brave enough to “Like” this post on Facebook? I’m really curious.

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      Dunno, but i will be the second

      • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

        You are a braver man than I. >< And to think my Japanese teacher occasionally looks at the site…

    • Tropxe

      Yeah, I always wonder that when I see “Likes” on websites – and not just for “guilty pleasures” like this. I actually made a new Facebook account to play the Dragon Age Legends game, so the idea of “Liking” something like this on my actual Facebook account seems pretty odd.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    Smart promotional tactic? The artwork is pretty stunning.

  • Aoshi00

    oh wow… I pre-ordered the regular game from AmiAmi because they didn’t have the picture up yet before… now I wonder if I should pay extra for the shower card lol… nah, as much as I love the sexy artwork, $12 is just too much for a card I have no use of.. and again what do these “Library cards” do anyway? Anyone know, they let you rent/buy things from libraries or bookstores in Jpn? These stickers look pretty awesome too…http://www.amiami.jp/shop/?set…I hope the bonus “artbook” would actually have some nice arts in it, most likely won’t have these exclusive ones…

    • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

      Just preordered the one with the card…gonna hate myself…always falling for sexy money traps~ >_<
      It's the first I see the stickers though, not that expensive at least.

      • Aoshi00

        lol.. yea, the shower card is very irresistible indeed :)… these art really remind me of Senko no Ronde.. when I pre-ordered they didn’t have the image up yet, otherwise I might’ve gone for it as well..still I don’t like the idea I can’t “use” the value on the card (whatever a library card does..) and now I don’t feel like e-mailing them to change the order.. recently I bought a couple of bad games though (like the Rurouni Kenshin fighting game, kinda want me money back.. that’s why I don’t know if I should blind-buy Black Rock Shooter..), so I’m trying to not buy much and just finish what I have on hand (I’m trying to finish Gyakuten Kenji 2 and Steins;gate now, I love the 2nd investigations game! much better than the first one)The stickers look good and aren’t too expensive, but I’m not getting them because I know I would never have the heart to peel it off and apply to my PSP :)…

        • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

          Hm, now that you mention, even though I never played Senko no Ronde myself, the art surely has some similarities. That’s my question: What are these library cards?? Meh, whatever always nice to have some sweet artwork in your room~…Same here man same here, I bought the Kenshin game myself, I mean I’m a really big fan of Watsuki-san’s works, but a bad game is a bad game :/
          Oh man I wish I could read Japanese as well as you do(I do understand some basics, but not enough to buy a text heavy/only game like that..), I can’t wait for the localization of the 2nd Investigations game, I loved the first if the second is going to be even better I have nothing else to wish for~ xd

          Haha, I can totally feel your way, it would be a shame if the nice art on the stickers is damaged.. :P

          • Aoshi00

            I’m curious too.. no one has an answer yet.. I know telephone cards give you minutes to make calls, but do library cards let you rent/buy books? The Kenshin game was pretty bad unfortunately don’t even feel like playing a 2nd time :(.. did you see some of the horrendous artwork, who drew them?? I couldn’t look >.<Steins;gate has a lot of Jpn internet slangs and physics terms, but the glossary is very useful, so takes a while to read.. I’m very early though just on the 2nd chapter, it’s quite funny and suspenseful at the same time, there would be a cheaper double-pack including the first game and sequel too.. I liked the first investigations game okay, but I find the cases and music to be more exciting and engaging (the chars have so much wacky animation it feels quite dynamic).. also Edgeworth and Kay are closer now, and I love the old chars from the trilogy making a comeback instead of Apollo where everyone disappeared w/o a trace. I’m on the 4th case now, they’re all quite long.. I actually go back to play the first game in English too (the Wild wild west case :). I need to finish that and Steins;gate so I could play the dating sim sequel.. and maybe watch the anime.. and I need to read the “Borrowers” before watching the latest Ghibli flick, anyway I’m “reading” a lot instead of playing lol..

            Oh, I forgot to mention, the female judge! She appears frequently to take sides (the opposite side), so it feels more like court cases too :)

  • puchinri

    The ones with the girls are nice, but I’m going to have to ask that they start making ones with guys in the shower and posing sexy-like, exposing themselves.
    One of glasses guy (Jayro) would have been especially nice… Mmmhm.

  • DanteJones

    Headphones add +10 to sexy, just sayin’. ;D

    (Bet you can’t guess which one is my favorite, lol)

    • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

      You say it man! Headphones are some of the sexiest accessories ever~ :D

  • Tropxe

    Anything with cute, short-haired girls gets my interest. More so if they’re in sexy uniforms, too. That girl in the first image, Rizetto, according to the katakana, really fits the bill – and it’s nice that she’s not just another moeblob. Though this is probably doomed to be “one of those PSP games that sort of makes me want a PSP, but not enough to actually get one”.

    No skimpily dressed/provocatively posed male character artwork? Double standards, I say!
