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. UPDATE #3: As of today, the Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars Kickstarter has finally reached the next stretch goal. The new additional character code named "Shark Girl" is funded and will be added into the Steam port of the game as DLC. Shark Girl will be released sometime in the summer of next year. UPDATE #2: Examu has recently added new backer tiers and have shown off all of the stretch goals for Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars. These stretch goals include adding Parace 'L Sia, the arcana of life, as a selectable arcana along with balance changes and 3 new additional characters. Each character doesn't have official names so their code names go as followed: Shark Girl (her arcana will be Parace 'L Sia) Dark Heart (with Dark Heart Giest) Omega (she will be the final boss of a completely new storyline in the game if the stretch goal is met) Examu added an additional final stretch goal which remains hidden as of right now. The kickstarter currently sits at $174,999 as of this posting, making the first stretch goal for Parace 'L Sia & balance changes unlocked. The next stretch goal is to make Shark Girl a playable character which sits at $260,000. We'll update more as the kickstarter advances. There are only 15 days remaining till the end of the Kickstarter. UPDATE #1: As of this posting, EXAMU has met it's Kickstarter goal of $100,000 with the current donation standing at $119,131. Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars will now be heading to Steam this Winter. Preparations for the additional character stretch goals are currently in process and Examu will have another update regarding the first stretch goal this week. Congratulations to Examu on achieving the initial goal!! :: ORIGINAL STORY :: Examu has launched it's long planned Kickstarter for the crowdfunding of Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!!!, the third iteration of Arcana Heart 3, to be released for Steam (PC) on Wednesday (July 5th). The campaign goal that Examu has set for this Kickstarter is at $100,000 and as of this posting, the current donation standing is at $65,457 within 3 days. The Kickstarter ends on August 2nd. The campaign currently has 3 additional stretch goals which are currently unknown as of right now but it is believed that they are going to help fund the three additional characters that are planned for the home version of Six Stars in which Examu has only shared silhouettes of. No other information pertaining to these additional characters (or if they will have arcanas) is known at the current time. If successful, the development of the game will run till its release in December of this year while the additional characters will begin development next year in January and lead up to their release roughly around to a Summer release.....that's assuming the stretch goals are met for those characters. Those backer rewards for those who help fund the kickstarter ranges from a thank you letter from Takaya Koji (the director of the series), a Steam code for the game release, a digital original soundtrack, a digital illustration book, a physical copy of the Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars, a physical copy of the soundtrack & illustration book, your name being added to the game ending credits, T-shirt, stickers, a certification of appreciation, an original illustration from the artists of the series, and a original drawing of whatever you choose for those who plan to donate the highest tier amount (which is $5,000). Examu released Arcana Heart 3 for arcades in Japan for the Taito Type X2 board on December 22, 2009 with the home console port being released on January 13, 2011. Aksys Games released the home version for North America on April 19, 2011 for the Playstation 3 Entertainment System while Zen Project released it on August 19th of that same year but for the Playstation 3 & Xbox 360. The first update to the game, Arcana Heart 3 Love Max!!!!!, released in Japanese arcades on May 8, 2013. This version made changes to character balance as well as change the game HUB design from it's red/black design to blue/white. The following year, the console version saw a release on May 25th for Japan, September 23rd for North America by Aksys Games, & November 20th for Europe by NIS Europe. The Steam port of Love Max!!!!! was released worldwide on September 29, 2015 by Arc System Works (you may recall, we helped with the advertising of the game back at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2015 before it's release......thanks again to Arc System Works). Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!!! was released in arcades in December 2014. Tohru Sakura, the creator and lead writer fo the game series, recently passed away at the beginning of May. Sakurai wrote the scenario for the first Arcana Heart game back in 2006 and continued to write the scenarios for the future games in the series.
