Some of you probably already know about this game already but I thought I might as well start a topic since it's coming out next month - 9/11

Hoshizora no Comic Garden is D3 Publisher's new Nintendo DS game.

The story is about a heroine named Airi who just recently entered a top ranking university called Seishuun University. She doesn't really want to go to university...she only went there because that's what her parents wanted for her. Airi's real dream is to become a manga-ka. In order to make her dream come true she begins working as an assistant to a famous manga-ka while going to school. Since her parents do not approve of this she moves out and lives in her childhood friend's boarding house.

If you want to check out what the characters are like please check out AoTan's Blog since it has a good translation of the character profiles.

Here are the covers for the game this one is the special edition
Spoiler


And here's the normal edition
Spoiler


Now I'll list the cast and the seiyuu
Adachi Ryou (Miyano Mamoru) - Airi's childhood friend and the one who is in charge of the boarding house.

Todoroki Keigo (Midorikawa Hikaru) - A famous manga and the one Airi is working under and he also lives in the boarding house with Airi.

Hattori Hibiki (Seki Toshihiko)- He's been friends with Ryou since high school and goes to the same school with Airi.

Kyouichi Curtis (Kakihara Tetsuya) - He's an up and coming talent/seiyuu (idol seiyuu?). He is also half-American and half-Japanese.

Kanzaki Kojirou (Kamiya Hiroshi) - He's an editor of the publishing company Shuusensha . He's the editor of the manga that Airi is working on is also Keigo's editor.

Suzuoka Ren (Paku Romi) - Ren is also Airi's friend from chidhood....but don't let Ren's looks fool you, Ren is really a girl like Airi.

I'm selling stuff so if you're interested please take a look!

Ah yes, the game where listening to Miyano Mamoru's sample voice makes me go all o.0 and think "Midorikawa?" for a strange, strange reason. >.< I'm looking forward to this one, if not only for the star-studded seiyuu cast. *coughs*

It looks like a fun game! The story seems fun with the main heroine wanting to be a manga-ka. The art kind of looks like how they use to draw in some older shoujo mangas. The seiyuu cast also looks really good.

The art really looks like Kyoko Hikawa's ( I thought she made the chara design first -mainly known for the manga Kanata kara ) and yes, this look like a bit like the old shoujo manga style ( Saitou Chihou and co ... that's maybe why i am so attracted by the art, because i am a great fan of all those mangaka )

I have read about this in the B's Log magazines...but the character design really makes me go :/

Not sure if I wll be motivated to go after "weird" looking people...

p.s. errr...Suzuoka Ren is not a person you can have love love ending with right? Or else are we going to expect Yuri?? o__O

nono, you got mixed up. Dont be fooled by Ren's looks.

On the official website, it said Ren is a SHE. Because she is a member of the famous Takarazuka Group. And in Japan Takarazuka is a famous group of artists that dress up as men but they are all women. (Although they changed the group name to Takarazuki on the website)

I know this because my sister in law is in Takarazuka.

And on the character info, it said, Ren was angry with her parents because as a woman she wasnt allowed to inherit the family business.

the storyline and minigames are the ones that interest me the most. Let's hope it's enough to help me get over the bla-bla character design.

REN~! T_T I thought she was a guy at first, was pretty disappointed when I found out 'he' was a she >_> Oh well. I still want to get this game though. There are practically NO individually developed DS otome games right now. All of them are ports over from some other system, or part of a another series (like Harutoki or Angelique).

I think the art is pretty cute. It certainly has a bit of the older look, but I still like it.

I don't mind the art - actually I think it looks kinda nice, but maybe I'm the only one who's taking the middle ground? >.< But yeah, I was fooled before with Tiramisu Villa's works - the cover looked nice but then when I looked at the CGs I was all"Meh". Withholding judgment until I actually play the game, for now.

The art isn't all that appealing to me either... but I'm still kind of interested in this game after hearing some positive talk about it a little while ago. (Already forgot what it was).

And I liked Comic Party, so maybe this will be fun too :P

@Kaho : so ? sorry, i read the description at 4 hours in the night, so i wasn't well awaked :P
Yes of course, i know takarazuka ( well, i think that any Ryoko Ikeda's fan knows it ). Anyway it's ok with me, you already have a Takarazuka's member to catch in Hoshi no oujo, even if i'm not at all at yuri i was ok with this ( i prefer to go after a takarazuka 's member than the shota type guy anyway :P )

I am looking forward to this game mainly because of the art, although it does seem a little strange, them really pointy chins and all. Hikaru Midorikawa is also a huge motivating factor. ;x

(I have heard about the Takarazuka too, but only because Ouran spoofed it. XD)

Posted 29 August 2008 - 09:50 PM

to be honest i was really shocked when i heard the sample voice for Keigo and Hibiki. Midorikawa's and Seki's voice got different here O_o

but their voices are still lovely so i'll give the game try^_^

hwa~!! you're so lucky to have a sister in law in Takarazuka *o* that means you can always get a free ticket to see their show?

i envy you a lot >.<

I'm interested in this game because of the mini-games.
The art was quite meh the first time I saw this, but it seems to be a bit better now. The guys look pretty.. tolerable, though Hibiki still looks kinda weird for me. And I won't say anything about Kyouichi since I'm sure you all know what I think about his looks.. :x

Aww it's too bad that Ren's a girl instead of a boy...

I like shouta guys... (Am I the only one out there?) xD

They're adorable, though not always very romantically interesting.

But... A girl?? :-(

yeah, I probably could. But I am a bit freaked out seeing the Takarazuka performance so I will pass...haha

But her boyfriend is an actor in Japan though! It was through her that I got to ask about how much it cost if I was to hire Taniyama Kisho to do voice acting for me...xD
