The highly anticipated loli eroge Kud Wafter (クドわふたー) by Key had a midnight launch on Friday 25 Jun 2010 at Akihabara and AkibaBlog was there to provide coverage at 3 different locations: Gamerz Main Store, Softmap PC Game Anime Building, and Softmap Amusement Building. Just look at all these scary otakus when the clock strikes midnight. BANZAI!
Here’s a look at the queuing situation before midnight. Its nice to see that everyone is queuing up in an orderly fashion.
Someone is carrying a Kudryavka dakimakura to keep him company while queuing. I think its dangerous to be carrying such precious items around.
The stores are all getting ready to welcome the waves of otakus.
Just look at the stacks of game being piled up on the shelves. Once the clock strikes midnight, staff are busy packing and otakus are just busy buying.
Do head over to AkibaBlog for more interesting images of the launch. Meanwhile, here’s the introduction trailer for Kud Wafter (クドわふたー).
