Hello again, readers!
While it’s been a very slow week for site updates, the major news side of things have picked up. Aside from the slew of titles announced by Otomate during the Otomate Party 2016 event, the biggest news this week would probably be the mammoth 756mb trial of Blackish House Side A→. Moujuu-tachi to Ohime-sama and Oumagatoki ~Kakuriyo no Enishi~ were reviewed by Famitsuu, being awarded Famitsuu Silver and Famitsuu Gold respectively. Dogenzaka Labs released their third localisation this month, which is My Butler (Shitsuji no Prince-sama) that was made available on Steam earlier this week.
It’s been an interesting week in otome gaming for English fans, as the E2 Gaming fiasco cooled down and Primula proved the new company’s legitimacy. For the Japanese side, Kalmia8’s latest staff blog post very briefly confirms that a third title is likely in the works, with other games releasing some major fan merchandise like soundtracks and fanbooks.
Hope to see you again next week!

It has been a slow news week, though the websites of Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen ~Eden with roses and phantasm~ (PSV port) and Yunohana SpRING! Cherishing Time (fandisc) have opened for fans to take a look at.
I just want to use this opportunity to make a quick comment about E2 Gaming’s Taishou x Alice localisation announcement. Yes, I am very much aware of the drama and controversies it has caused, but I will not be including mentions of it in the actual Sunday Mail issues until there is undeniable proof that the localisation is legitimate.
Finally, I plan on making a special post about the E2 Gaming “drama” once the situation cools down, so those who didn’t catch wind of it from day 1 will be able to get up to speed.
See you again next Sunday!
We’ve reached issue #10, but it’s a pretty quiet news week; especially in comparison to issue #9. Though quiet, some of the announcements are pretty major, so hopefully issue #10 will still be a good read for you all.
Yet again, the April 2016 Releases post received an update, thanks to the release of Illus Seed’s first otome game, Asagao Academy: Normal Boots Club and veteran Winter Wolves’ C-14 Dating on Steam.
Welcome to the Issue #3 of the Sunday Otome Gaming Mail!
The Otome Visual Novel Releases of March 2016 post is now out and has been updated with another doujin release called Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons. I’ve also finally completed my trial review of Bocchi Musume x Produce Keikaku., so if you want to check that out also, just follow the link!
Thank you for reading as always, and I hope you come across some good news this issue!
