DS game CGs – how to get

Posted in News & Info
Comments Off on DS game CGs – how to get

I made a list of the CGs you can get in the DS game, along with some info on how to get them. Hopefully this will be useful to those who want to collect all of them! The biting parts need to be verified though. (Please let me know if there are any mistakes!)

[List of CGs]

If you need help with the game, there’s a pretty useful guide here. I also found a map of the Cross Gakuen grounds here, which would be useful for people like me who keep wondering where they are while patrolling. XD You can play the game even if you don’t know Japanese, but some knowledge of the language would be really useful when it comes to understanding the dialogue and making your choices.

VK Cross Gakuen DVD

Comments Off on VK Cross Gakuen DVD

The Cross Gakuen DVD, which was a mail-in item, is starting to be mailed out in Japan! I saw quite a few copies put up for auction of Yahoo! Auctions Japan today.

The contents include (1) character introduction clips, (2) DS game promo clips, (3) anime promo clips, and (4) a cast talk. Of all these, the cast talk seems like the most interesting part. Hopefully someone will post this part online?

From the Japanese blogs I’ve read, the talk section involves Horie Yui (Yuuki), Miyano Mamoru (Zero), Kishio Daisuke (Kaname), Fukuyama Jun (Aidou), Suwabe Junichi (Kain), Chiba Susumu (Takuma), and Hoshi Souichiro (Shiki). Horie-san was dressed in the Day Class uniform (I want to see the guys dressed up too, but apparently they weren’t. :( ), and was the MC of that section. The remaining 6 guys were split into 2 groups. They had to answer the questions read out by Horie-san, and she would decide who gave the best answer. The team with the most “best answers” would win.

“Love<3Progress” Team: Miyano Mamoru, Fukuyama Jun, Chiba Susumu
*Their full team name was “Love.Psychedelic.Fantasy.Online WITH Progress!” (I wonder how they came up with such a name…)

“Tooth.Strange.Beautiful Woman” Team: Kishio Daisuke, Suwabe Junichi, Hoshi Souichiro
*The pronunciation in Japanese sounds like “Hi-Vision”.

[Questions]

1. If you became a vampire, what would you want to do?

Mamo: Catfight
FukuJun: Donate blood
Chiba-san: To fly
Kishio: (At the point of becoming a vampire) Saying “I’ve decided not to be human anymore.”
Suwabe-san: Dress up
Hoshi-san: To be the umpire of the Saitama Seibu Lions vs Tokyo Giants match in the Japan series (Both are baseball teams, and his answer was a play on the word “Vampire”.)

The winner was Suwabe-san.

2. While vampires suck the vitality from roses, if it were you, what would you suck to get your vitality?

Mamo: Elbow
FukuJun: Vacuum cleaner (To see who would lose.)
Chiba-san: Foreigners (Suck up genes from various people so that he can take the best ones and combine them.)
Kishio: Milk
Suwabe-san: Office ladies
Hoshi-san: 田原元騎手 (Not too familiar with this, sorry.)

FukuJun won this round.

3. The flawless Kaname-sama… if he had a weakness, what would it be?

Mamo: Blond-haired pig rascal (It was written as 金髪ブタ野郎… what imaginary thing is that?!)
FukuJun: Vertigo (The onomatopoeia used for dizzyness, クランクラン, is read as Kuran, same as Kaname’s family name.)
Chiba-san: A decayed tooth
Kishio: Coffin (When asked by others to write his name, Kaname 枢, he would accidentally write ‘coffin 棺’ instead.)
Suwabe-san: Rock and roll
Hoshi-san: Chicken skin

As expected, Chiba-san won this with the decayed tooth. XD

4. What new abilities did vampire Yuuki gain?

(Anyone who raised their hand could answer the question.)

Suwabe-san: American joke
FukuJun: Become sensitive to the stock market
Chiba-san: Become a magical girl
Hoshi-san: To be able to choose between good and bad balls (in baseball)
Chiba-san: To remember the rules in baseball
Kishio: To be able to write the kanji for rose
Mamo: Elbow
Suwabe-san: Stand on tiptoe
Hoshi-san: Grow taller
Chiba-san: Grow longer eyelashes
FukuJun: Stay 17 forever (Kind of referring to Horie Yui, who always says that her age is 17.)
Kishio: Grew taller (He said it slightly differently from Hoshi-san.)
Suwabe-san: Stretchable jeans
Mamo: Tight jeans
FukuJun: Sega and Nobita
Suwabe-san: Courage (Pronounced the same as Yuuki.)
Kishio: To be able to express her opinions on different issues
Suwabe-san: Become serious
Hoshi-san: Black vinegar (Sounds smiliar to Cross.)
FukuJun: To be called “You Key” (Sounds like Yuuki.)
Chiba-san: Become good at relationships (As in BGR.)
Suwabe-san: Become good at kissing
FukuJun: Become blood type B
Mamo: To see the auras of others

Mamo won with his last answer.

Overall, the Love<3Progess team won, and the prize was premium blood orange juice.

To end off, all the participants also gave a message.

Comments Off on New translations

Just a quick update, links to translations of the Aidou and Kain tracks on the Zero version of the Good Night CD have been added here. Thanks to Anna for sharing the links!

Claudia has translated the Omake Mini Anime that came with DVD 5, and you can download the file here. Thanks a lot!

It’s really nice to see more VK media getting translated these days, so that more people can enjoy it. About half of the currently released drama CD tracks have been translated, and it’d be nice if the other half gets translated as well someday. :)

VK info from the latest issue of Lala

Comments Off on VK info from the latest issue of Lala

The latest issue of Lala is out in some places, and while there’s no VK chapter in this issue, there is a drama CD featuring VK. There are 2 tracks, the first is the actual drama itself, and the other one is a free talk corner with the seiyuus. It will be up on the media page soon, so keep checking back! :)

The next issue of Lala will feature VK on the cover, and the furoku is a VK passcase. I like the design, just that I’m not so sure how I feel about the pink colour that the pascase is…

I haven’t been updating the front page for a while, but for those who have been clicking around, you might have noticed that the extras from VK season 1 DVD 5 have been uploaded here. I’ve just uploaded both versions of the Good Night CD as well, and you can get them here.

I’ve updated the media page with all the drama cds and extra videos I know of, even though I don’t have the files for some of them. If you happen to have these and would like me to share them here, please contact me or drop me a comment. :) If I’ve missed listing anything, do let me know as well! Enjoy!
