Some girls may not be able to engage in all forms of play. Please tell us about your own games.”
The “spa-for-the-brain and relaxation shop” gives you a choice of room themes and costume for your lady companion to wear as she hangs out with you. It costs 4000 yen for 40 minutes, 5500 yen for an hour, or 7500 yen for 80 minutes; the list of “play” activities above are all options. As the website puts it, the environment allows you to enjoy a “2.7D world,” one that’s just a little bit closer to the one guests see in wacky anime love comedies.
What would you do with a girl for 40 to 80 minutes after paying for her company? Well, I can think of a few things, but in Cute Room you’ll be playing games, watching DVDs, getting massages of assorted sorts, and so on — assuming you’ve got the cash. That and you can get slapped if you’re into that Haruhi Suzumiya stuff. Presumably you could experience all of the above if you had a real girlfriend, but if you’re contemplating a visit to Cute Room, you probably don’t have a girlfriend, do you?
If you’re sticking around Tokyo post-TGS for a little sightseeing, come to the grand opening event on October 3 (Saturday), where they’ll let 30 guests in for a sneak-preview look at what 2.7D looks like in action.
The 2ch response:

I came home from work yesterday to find a porn-game box I had hidden placed on top of the keyboard.
I tried to talk my way out of it at first, but my wife’s decided that I got the name from this game, and it’s pretty much the truth anyway, so I couldn’t. I tried to emphasize how nice a girl Kana is, but that didn’t work either. I’ve got both my and the wife’s parents coming to a family conference after I get home today.
20 – 2009/08/05 11:45:45.93 ID:dNaLV1HeO
Uh, Kana dies, doesn’t she?
That’s creepy, so at least make it Saya or something
29 – 2009/08/05 11:46:58.86 ID:Gv0Doadv0
Once I found out she was gonna be a girl, I had no choice in my mind but Kana.
36 – 2009/08/05 11:49:16.57 ID:uadBUOR80
You know they’re gonna have her write about where her name came from sometime or other during elementary school. Are you gonna tell her the truth then?
48 – 2009/08/05 11:51:41.54 ID:Gv0Doadv0
I’ll tell her that it came from Canaan because I wanted peace in the Middle East.

There’s been a name I’ve had in my mind for a daughter for ages now. Can you guess what it is?
I couldn’t do it in the end, though. I’m jealous of >>1’s bravery.

Following up my original post a little while ago, I thought I’d catch up on what my favorite shogi player, Mr. Takanori Hashimoto, has been up to over the summer. The last time I saw him, he looked like this:
Here he is again on TV a few days back on NHK’s shogi instruction program. Looks like he (A) gained a little weight (B) decided an inner tube was the perfect accessory for his televised match that day. (Heavyweight boxers WWE wrestlers have elaborate ring-entry sequences; shogi has this.)
It hasn’t all been smiles, though — he had an unexpected loss in a tournament on NHK the previous week, and he was a little broken up about it:
If you want to know more about what professional shogi is like, this video will tell you absolutely nothing. Click on it anyway; it’s humorous. Hashimoto shows up in the second match, on the left.

Japanese gamers’ response to the announcement of Square’s new DS title was a bit reserved, chiefly because most expected the game to be SaGa 4 or Romancing SaGa 4.
38 ： ロベリア(長屋)：2009/07/01(水) 22:22:54.17 ID:v84Rl7Qt
The greatest disappointment of the year
41 ： デージー(コネチカット州)：2009/07/01(水) 22:22:58.47 ID:rNWQPbOU
This company is connected to the DS by the hip
57 ： ナズナ(dion軍)：2009/07/01(水) 22:23:31.62 ID:AGKRh+oE
Just stop making 3D DS games already!
93 ： ニリンソウ(九州・沖縄)：2009/07/01(水) 22:25:14.66 ID:Zl+dk6+/
Whew…I’m just glad the Romancing SaGa series is safe…

You people are ridiculously rough on Square.
Every day you’re all “Square makes nothing but remakes and sequels, fuck ’em,” and when they put out a new game you treat it like shit
174 ： ナズナ(関西地方)：2009/07/01(水) 22:29:29.35 ID:OONQBAUt
It’s shit because they slapped the FF name on it
If it was actually a new title it’d be forgivable

Nihon Break Kogyo is apparently no more. The Yokohama-based demolitions firm was an Internet sensation about five years ago because one of their contracted part-time employees (who’s now a full-time professional musician) created a “company anthem” that totally rocked. You may remember it from the below video:
NBK commissioned this anthem in 2002 as part of a new PR package for its clients; it got into the hands of Tamori sometime in late 2003, he introduced it on TV, and it became a huge hit, even winding up on a Taiko Drum Master disc.
Their site suddenly went offline June 19. People assumed they had simply been done in by the poor economy, but the truth is far stranger:
“The 43-year-old president of a subsidiary that handled management rights for the NBK anthem, and his mother, a 65-year-old that had been with the company since its founding and ran all of its accounting, conspired together to embezzle the majority of the outfit’s money. A paper company that the woman’s new husband was president of was also involved in it. They were exposed in January this year, but they took the company for at least 500 million yen [$5.22 million] over the past three years — and that’s just what they’ve found so far. The company’s total yearly income only averaged 150 million yen, so they were in no shape to continue functioning.”
The company’s 20-person staff were all laid off in January, leaving only the president and founder, who’s preparing to sue the perpetrators in civil court. The article states that the mother-and-son team handled all of the royalties from the song, which means NBK itself never saw a single aluminum 1-yen piece from the massive, stereotypically Japanese boom.
Shame. The song’s pretty “I was diddling with my Casio” in style, but you can’t deny it’s catchy. There was a period in 2004 where you couldn’t walk ten feet in Akihabara without hearing this melody wafting through the air, offering a slight (very slight) respite from the hateful Sato Musen and Sofmap jingles of death.

Hello, Magweaselers. Today I want to talk to you about Mr. Takanori Hashimoto, 7th dan in professional shogi over in Japan.
Here’s what Hashimoto looks like:

It was from a while ago so it probably messed up his stomach…it’s not my fault, right?

How many times have we told you to lay off the MMOs…
I don’t play MMOs, it’s just a pain in the ass to go to the bathroom so I do it in an empty plastic bottle of tea. My brother came into my room to use the computer and drank it without knowing
