Next-generation Tsundere

April 10th, 2010 by Author

Via Nova comes a pic set for a new J.C. Staff show (+), apparently called “次世代ツンデレ” 【じせだい・つんでれ】 or “Next-generation Tsundere” (*). Nova wastes no time before letting J.C.Staff have it for the obvious similarities with Taiga, but you know what? I’m fine with it. I am playing Toradora Portable right now, and Taiga is great. I feel guilty for taking Ami’s route. Also, the “next generation tsundere” wears the collar, which can only be a plus.

P.S. Seyuu’s name is Shizuka Itou. Hmm… Darry. Perhaps Rie Kugimiya is refusing to be typecast anymore.

UPDATE: Zyl e-mailed:

Shizuka Itou – she has a pretty strong background in playing tsundere characters (non-loli, strong woman-types though) – most prominently, Hinagiku from Hayate no Gotoku. Also Shinra from KimiAru. Her tsundere CV is also probably why she was tapped to voice Tanya in Nodame.

A new typecast, eh? Well, as long as KugiRie is happy…

Also, someone twittered that the title is actually “Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi”.

MEANWHILE, Sixten delivers. The premise is weird, but at least the story has to have an end since it’s a VN, right?

(+) Sixten, are you listening? I expect a preview shortly.

(*) I’m immensely pleased to read the title off the screencap. It is the title… right?
