posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Software publishing company MangaGamer announced at its panel at Otakon on Saturday that it will release the following visual novels: Supipara chapter 1, Liarsoft's Kindred Spirits on the Roof, propeller's Tokyo Babel and The Shadows of Pygmalion, and Princess Evangile W Happiness.
Mangagamer had launched a crowdfunding campaign to release the first chapter of Supipara in English. The campaign has so far raised US$109,036.85. The goal for the first chapter was US$100,000, and the goal for the second chapter is US$200,000. Mangagamer describes the all-ages title as follows:
Finally back in his hometown after seven years of being passed between relatives, Yukinari Sanada's hopes for a quiet, peaceful life are shattered when his close friend coaxes him into joining the action committee for their academy's traditional beauty pageant. Driven by the need to find competitors for the pageant, Yukinari seeks out the quirky heroines that make this title so bright and fun as they overcome the exciting events in store for them!
Chapter 1 of the series focuses on Yukinari's cousin, Sakura Narumi, a bright and energetic girl aspiring to be an idol. It's hard to predict what outfits she'll wear next, or what lines she'll spring upon Yukinari for practice, but she always keeps him on his toes!
Of course, Alice also keeps him constantly on guard. Why does Alice, a witch with a penchant for contracts, and taste for the happy memories of humans, know more about Yukinari than she should?
Mangagamer will release Supipara chapter 1 on Steam.
Mangagamer's release of Tokyo Babel and The Shadows of Pygmalion mark the company's first releases with its new partnership with propeller. The company describes Tokyo Babel as follows:
Tokyo Babel begins its tale on the eve of the apocalypse: parallel worlds crumble in succession as the gates of Heaven are closed shut and Hell is irrevocably submerged in water. In a final, desperate attempt to set things right, the surviving angels and demons flock to the soaring purgatory of Tokyo Babel, intent on climbing Jacob's Ladder to reopen the gates of Heaven and earn divine forgiveness. In the midst of this world-rending calamity, a young man called Tendou Setsuna travels to Tokyo Babel in order to lend his aid in the quest for Heaven – joining him are the angel Raziel, the demon Lilith, as well as the amnesia-stricken, yet relentlessly optimistic high schooler, Kugutsu Sorami. Theirs is a journey laden with love, hate, passion and betrayal – one that, at its conclusion, may very well alter the fate of the universe as we know it.
Tokyo Babel is a story born from the mind of Yuuichirou Higashide (Ayakashibito), one of the better known figures on the field of darker, action-oriented visual novels alongside talents such as Takashi Masada (Dies irae) and Kinoko Nasu (Fate/stay night). The game offers plenty of heated battles and a narrative deeply rooted in Christian mythology, all in a 50-hour-long beast of an adventure sure to please fans of the chuuni genre.
Mangagamer describes the all-ages visual novel The Shadows of Pygmalion as follows:
In a world much like our own, Hajiro Mina was an ordinary highschool girl. But one day, she awakens to an ability to see the inhuman beings lurking in mankind's shadows--"Puppets", powerful entities engaged in a secret war for control of the world. Hurled into this hidden battle, Mina is forced to join an organization specializing in the eradication of Puppets and fight to protect herself and those she cares about. Yet... one question still remains--who is controlling the Puppets? And to what end?
The Shadows of Pygmalion is an exciting tale featuring an all-star voice cast that includes big names like Hanazawa Kana, Ise Mariya, Akesaka Satomi, Kitamura Eri, and many more! Action, intrigue, and real-life collide in this struggle for the fate of mankind as faint buds of romance bloom between the girls on their secret battlefield.
Liarsoft's Kindred Spirits on the Roof is an adult yuri title about two ghosts who are a couple who recruit a female high school student to help them move on to the afterlife. Princess Evangile W Happiness is a fandisk sequel to the adult visual novel Princess Evangile. Mangagamer plans to release the uncut adult version of the fandisk sequel on its website, and it will also release an all-ages version for Steam.
