Ugh my brain hurts. Can't Aniplex come with an idea that isn't pretty much just a clone of another popular idea somebody else already did anymore? Also I'm no expert here but those are some really bland looking designs. If their marketing division is up to the usual tasks though it shouldn't matter much.

I didn't expect Aniplex to get into the money pit market, oh well, I'll skip this like the many others I've seen especially since I can now get good puzzle RPGs that are priced on handhelds, I already have 2 on order (1 for this month and 1 for the next).

I CALLED IT!!! Back when there was a mobile game turning girls in mushrooms I already had my suspicions about what would be next. We have girls as bears, robots, military machinery, mushrooms, and now household furniture. Hooray for Japan. Laughing

On a serious note though, they are pretty cute. My favorite are the intercom and washing machine.

I'd say I'm surprised, but I'm really not. Someone was going to do it eventually.

I LOVE gijinka but I'm really disappointed when there are ones with lazy designs, especially when it's just 'schoolgirl with random parts slapped on'. (Hence my dislike of KanColle)
The only good one of these is the intercom, the rest seem barely thought out.

Seriously? Why not turn everything into Transformers. Laughing

The toaster girl is almost a carbon copy of Fubuki (with a few tweaks here and there, but...), I can see how creative this genre (of moe antropomorfism) is becoming...

So, is she the Brave Little Toaster-ette?

(It's starting to border on that scene from Welcome to the NHK, where our NEET hero imagines his fridge, microwave and TV as his "friends".
The imaginations of real gynophobic otaku might embelliush on that concept somewhat...)

Taho's design looks so inconvenient. You lose much of your mobility with a door strapped to your back.
