Did I forget to mention that Issei learns how to read women's minds through their boobs?

Because he does. tongue

Nooooot really selling me on it bud.

As for Valkyrie Drive, it's likely the Vita game protags are of similar stature to facilitate quick switching between the two in the middle of combat. The other two sets of girls have pretty noticeable height differences.

And during the same arc, his love for breasts is so great that a breast goddess, that none of the others gods had ever heard of or seen before, helps save him so he can fight Loki.

Also, this boost:

As Valkyrie Drive has proven, make Issei a girl and I'll watch it.

Oh, so your one of those Het Is Ew people.

Never mind.

On the other hand, there is the equivalent of a female issei in the for of the minor female character who acts like him.

[up] It's not really Het Is Ew, it's just that Yuri is funner and Harem has a way of getting REALLY OLD REALLY QUICKLY.

I mean, sure, I buy too many games from Manga Gamer, but my point still stands.

Besides, have you ever seen a man who prefers Hheterossexual couples instead of lesbians? I, for one, never did.

Takaki talks about how they've designed the chars down to the detail of the girls' nipples/areola colour/shape. He isn't able to show them on TV, but he wants to explore a new way of doing it because just obscuring them is dull.

He likes girls' nipples rubbing and pressing on each other a lot, so he is really enthusiastic to work on this project.

One time when he was talking to his scenario writer, it clicked with him that the setting of girls turning into weapons when they are aroused (by other girls) is fantastic because it gives the girls a reason to do it and adds drama.

Oh boy

Because Girl-on-Girl Is Hot wink

This is the guy who hosted the Seiyuu's for Senran Kagura at a bikini shoot.

He obviously takes the Issei Hyodo route to perversion with his love for Oppai.

So we can expect an ESRB rating of at least T or M? PEGI 17? "Too hot for the kiddies, also lesbians."

It will probably be rated M by default, anything less would probably taint its image to the targeted audience.

I can only read the kanji because it's basically secondhand Chinese characters (yes, the Japanese borrowed our Hanzi script to supplement their kana) and their names would sound very different in Chinese.

Well it looks like the maker isn't going with his philosophy with the characters like he did in Senran Kagara. Not that there's a problem with that.

The new info has been translated

The additional cast includes:

Yuna Yoshino as Akira Hiiragi Masumi Tazawa as Kasumi Shigure Asami Seto as Charlotte Shalzen Hitomi Harada as Momoka Sagara

They're joining

Mikako Izawa as Mamori Tokonome

Yuka Iguchi as Mirei Shikishima

Yurika Kubo as Meifon Sakura

The "beautiful girl sexy battle action" anime is set on five artificial islands. Mamori is a "mermaid" transferred to one of those islands. When Mamori is attacked, a newly transferred girl named Mirei saves her. The enemy doesn't stop, however, and the two are soon cornered. Just when they think all hope is lost, Mirei kisses Mamori, and Mamori turns into a sword. Mirei then wields the sword and launches a counterattack against their enemies.
