Otaku Penguin "Grape-kun" Passes Away

It comes with a heavy heart to report that "Grape-kun", the otaku Humboldt penguin that made headlines after showing affection to a cutout standee of Hululu from the anime series "Kemono Friends", has passed away. Grape-kun was 21 years old.

Reports of his passing came from a twitter post from the staff of the Tobu Zoo - the home of Grape-kun:
"Grape-kun the Humbodt penguin passed away yesterday. We would like to thank everyone for supporting him. And Hululu, thank you for watching over him to the very end. And Grape-kun, thank you for a long time together. Rest in peace in Heaven."

There were plans to throw a "Fall Grape Festival" on the November 11th & 25th that would allow visitors to celebrate Grape-kun and his love for Hululu. There has been no word from the Tobu Zoo staff as to if they any new plans for those dates. Two days prior to his passing, Grape-kun and Hululu were removed from the penguin pen after his zookeepers found him to be in poor health.
 
The story of Grape-kun gained international attention after he displayed signs of love and affection towards the Kemono Friends character standee of Hululu. The cutout standee was on display at the Tobu Zoo as part of a collaboration event with the Kemono Friends anime series that was airing at that time where various animal pens had a cutout standee on display representing that animal. The Kemono Friends event happened during April 2017.

Hululu's cutout became a permanent fixture of Grape-kun's penguin pen at the Tobu Zoo after fans, as well as Hululu's seiyuu (pictured above), expressed their love Grape-kun's cute displays of affection. During a typhoon, the pair was separated briefly but during his final moments, the Tobu Zoo staff reassured fans that they were together till the end.
Since then, fans have been sharing their condolences & thanking Grape-kun for giving them happy memories which also comes with a flood of fanart:

Rest in Peace, Grape-kun! T_T

Gameplay de GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match é revelado durante live-stream

GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match é um título anunciado pela Bandai-Namco em Julho deste ano para a plataforma PlayStation 4, com data de lançamento estimada para o inverno japonês. Não é o primeiro jogo da franquia. No ano de 2014 o PS Vita recebeu GIRLS und PANZER: Sensha-do Kiwamemasu!, que por sinal não foi muito popular no ocidente desde que foi lançado apenas em solo japonês com suporte ao idioma local. Enquanto o primeiro título aborda a história do anime de mesmo nome, o pouco que se sabe até o momento é que o modo história de Dream Tank Match tem como base o filme GIRLS und PANZER der Film, e por isso pode-se dizer que se trata de uma continuação. Desta vez o jogo contará com uma versão específica para a região da Ásia (tanto em formato digital quanto físico) com legendas em Inglês, o que se acredita ser a forma com que o desenvolvedor avaliará a recepção do jogo no ocidente.
 
 
Há cerca de uma semana foi anunciada uma sessão live-stream marcada para o dia de hoje, a qual foi transmitida entre as 08:00 e 09:00 da noite (Japan Standard Time).

Dentre o que foi apresentado, tivemos a oportunidade de assistir a 17 minutos de gameplay em tempo real.

Tokimeki Idol Smartphone Game Announced


 
It has been announced by Konami Digital Entertainment on Friday that they will be releasing a new smartphone game titled "Tokimeki Idol". This game is a spin-off to the Tokimeki Memorial visual dating sim series which was also developed by Konami that started out back in 1994 and has not been seen since back in 2014. Konami opened a new teaser website with a video giving fans a closer look at the game.
 
 
Tokimeki Idol is a idol communication game where you'll be living with the games 15 female idols whom are part of a music institute to help them achieve their goal & dreams.

The game will be a free-2-play game for iOS & Android mobile devices which will come with microtransaction purchases. The game will also sport a "VR" mode for compatible devices for smartphones & tablets.



 
This new development for the TokiMemo series is built on the concept of gaining a “Tokimeki” (Heartbeat Memorial) from spending your everyday with the girls who are aiming to become idols.
Tokimeki Idol marks the return of Konami's Tokimeki Memorial romance sim series. From its initial release back in 1994, Tokimeki Memorial has spawned many  game sequels, spin-offs, & adaptations from its original video anime back in 1999 & 2009, a 2006 anime TV series (Tokimeki Memorial ~Only Love~) which was based on the Tokimeki Memorial online game which was also released in that same year, & many more from drama CDs & soundtracks. No game within the Tokimeki Memorial series has ever been officially translated for the western market although it is argued that Brooktown High, another one of Konami's games released for the Playstation Portable back in 2007, was heavily inspired by Tokimeki Memorial and was considered Konami's way of bringing the series over to the western market......not in the way fans would have wanted though as the game was heavily panned as a horrible game.
 
Reporter Rant: Okay seriously......this game is looking too much like The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage. Honestly, I think I can let one out now......FUCK KONAMI for ruining yet another favorite franchise by making it a mobile monetization smartphone game!! #FUCKKONAMI

  1. Bandai-Namco announced that will release GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match for PS4 in Asia region with English subtitles. That is, the game will be available in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Maylasia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia) in both digital and physical format during Japanese Winter in 2017. Therefore, in case the game is not released in the West, there is an option for who wants to play in English. From this news has been created a rumor that the game will be launched in the West. Note that English subtitles do not mean that the game will reach America or Europe, but rather that the developer chose English instead of localizing the game in each Asian country in their respective language. This news is about covering other countries outside Japan while not leaving Asia.
  2. This is a teaser image that was used at the time to get people interested in a prospective collaboration between EXAMU & Nitro+. This eventually lead up to the official announcement of Nitro+ Blasterz.
  3. It has only been about a month since Nitro+ Blasterz ~Heroine Infinite Duel~, the fighting game developed by EXAMU (Arcana Heart, Daemon Bride, Aquapazza) with characters from the visual novel games developed by Nitro+ (Saya no Uta, Super Sonico, & lots of others), was released in Japanese arcades. Early this month, Marvelous Entertainment (publishers of the Senran Kagura series), has announced that they will be porting over the game to the Playstation 3 & Playstation 4 this year during the Winter. During this time, lots of news regarding the game has been released in regards to the console version. Senran Kagura's Homura has been announced that she will appear as a guest character for the console version of the game. It's not known if she will appear in the arcade version but given that the arcade versions of games usually serve as the testing grounds for new characters & mechanics or vice versa, there is a good possibility of her appearing in a later update along with Saber, Ethica, & Oka. Yesterday, it was teased by XSeed Entertainment - the US publishing company owned by Marvelous Entertainment Japan - that Nitro+ Blasterz would be appearing to the west for a home release. It has been officially announced today by XSeed that the game will be making its way for a western release (NA & EU) at the same time as its Japanese counterpart (This is not known as they're both are just given a tentative Winter 2015 release date....no specifics). https://twitter.com/XSEEDGames/status/609406173910069248/photo/1 Stay tuned for more news regarding Nitro+ Blasterz as more developments take place.

  4. It has been announced in this week's issue of Famitsu magazine that Nitro+ Blasterz: Heroine Infinite Duel, a 2 vs 2 fighter developed by Examu (Arcana Heart series, Aquapazza, Daemon Bride: Additional Gain) & Nitro+ (Super Sonico, Saya no Uta, Steins;Gate) will be making its way to home consoles for the Playstation 3 & Playstation 4. The upcoming console version will have slight changes made from its arcade release. Most notable will be the addition of Super Sonico to the playable cast. Super Sonico was originally promoted in the game as one of the support characters you get to choose along with the playable cast. There will also be more new characters announced for the home version in the near future. Come on Examu, you know you want to promote Angela Blazac from the support cast to a playable character.
