    I can think of anything to say other than it’s looking good for what it is. Interesting trailer, though.

    It’s a pretty nice competitor to other digital idols out there. Nice that Sonico herself has a bit of a backgorund as a college student. She’s come pretty far since being a mascot for a music event almost 10 years ago.

    • ShadowDivz

      That was 10 years ago?

      Why the hell has she been so popular then? Excluding the games, i kept seeing Sonico everywhere. Fan art of her cosplaying, dakimakuras. guest appearences in games, etc.

      “Besides the whole headphones glued to head and huge boobs”, i never got why she was so popular.

      • Shippoyasha

        Nitro+ does great promo art and she was more of a true mascot for a long time. She was less a character and more an icon for a long time.

      • Attribule

        You can ask that question for most otaku-oriented products and whatnot.

        There isn’t anything inherently interesting or appealing about any of these digital idols or other characters. They appeal to a very specific type of person and nobody else more often than not. It’s like Touhou is immensely popular… among people that like Touhou. Nobody else cares about it.

        An otaku is somebody that obsesses over something, therefore anything they happen to obsess over APPEARS to be more popular than it actually is. When you’re browsing the internet and especially niche websites/forums it can be easy to think something is more popular than it is because you’re likely surrounded by the group of people that that thing might appeal to.

        • Shippoyasha

          To be fair, she was a mascot before anything. She really wasn’t a character at first. Just a mock up for a festival. It’s like how Black Rock Shooter wasn’t a real character before but people liked her design and their characters grew from there. You don’t need some major reasons for a character to be crafted.

    • Pinkemon

      Is it true that she’s Nitroplus’ mascot? I read that somewhere and I’ve always found that strange cause she’s a pink haired moe with big boobs yet I don’t remember ever seeing Nitroplus’ name on anything that isn’t dark and depressing or gory in some sort of way(Including Nitro+Chiral which I’ve been getting into recently which seems to fit the mold) so it’s not something you’d expect. Though I guess that’s the point?

      • Shippoyasha

        She was a Nitro+’s music festival mascot for a long time, I remember. They actually hold concerts for their visual novel soundtracks and Sonico was their mascot for that event.

    1:49. one of the more suggestive faces to make with a microphone close to your face

  • The Oni Masked gentleman… he needs his own game :) That guy’s got some style.

  • ShadowDivz

    What is this, phantom of the opera? What are you hiding damn it?!

    Lol, rival idol also has headphones glued to head.

    • At this point i believe that the headphones is her actual ears

      • MXC

        Theres a guro picture floating around somewhere on the internet that has her with them off and showing bloody holes right where her ears are supposed to be. I can’t figure out if that is just fanart or official considering who she’s the mascot for.

  • DarthSithZero

    Yes, I can see some amazing “features”.

  • Black Heaven

    1:08 “Yowakutemo baka no watashi wa yoroshiku onegai shimaaaasu!”
    (Rough translation: I may be weak and stupid, but please take care of meeeee!)

    It seems that in anime logic, size of your boobs is inversely proportional to your intelligence. >_<
    Argh everyone just loves the bubbly girl with big melons character type. Bonus if she has glasses.

    Just look at her! Aren't …. they…. mesmerizing? ♡

    • Eriol

      She’s actually pretty smart, studying marine biology. She’s just very clumsy.

  • Death Metal

    I guess a western release would be very much far fetched to expect, huh?

  • This really seems a 3DS game, now I see how usefull having 2 screens going to be. Correct me if Im wrong but I thin will be like watching her face in the 1st screen and boobs on the 2nd screen! :3

    1:45 could you grab that microphone in a more suggestive way?
