like the song, but really hate those pink outfits...maybe if they were a different color
On September 28th, TV Tokyo finally released the first teaser for the upcoming second adventure of everyone’s favorite midnight drama hero ‘Yuusha Yoshihiko‘, written and directed by Fukuda Yuichi.
After the very successful first season of the low-budget adventure drama ‘Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro‘ last summer, which also ranked first in the ‘Amazon Best DVD of 2011′ drama DVD category, the homage to the popular ‘Dragon Quest‘ franchise was given a go for a second season slated for this year’s fall season.
The second season is called ‘Yuusha Yoshihiko to Akuryo no Kagi‘ (lit. ‘The Hero Yoshihiko and the Key of the Evil Spirit’). Despite being set 100 years after the first adventure, the story will once again feature the familiar party of four, which consists of Yamada Takayuki as ‘Yoshihiko’, Kinami Haruka as ‘Murasaki’, Muro Tsuyoshi as ‘Merebu’, and Takuma Shin as ‘Danjo’. Also reprising their characters from the first season are Sato Jiro as ‘Hotoke’ and Okamoto Azusa as ‘Hisa’.
In the first announcement of the second adventure, the producers made clear that they won’t change its formula at all, which means there won’t be a higher budget nor are they planning to increase its scale. The first teaser already pleases its fans with the familiar characters, atmosphere, humor, and handmade special effects. One slogan of the second season says, “The beginning of another ridiculous adventure.”
Those who missed the drama last year and didn’t buy the DVD set will get another chance just before the start of the second season. All episodes of the first season will become available for free at the commercial streaming platforms of GyaO!, Video Market, DMM.com, TV Dogatch, and NicoNico Douga, but only during the 48 hours before the first episode of the second season.
TV Tokyo will air the first episode of ‘Yuusha Yoshihiko to Akuryo no Kagi’ on October 12th.

Sometimes, after a long, stressful day, there’s nothing more comforting than crawling into bed with your significant other and falling asleep in their arms.
But what if you don’t have anyone to cuddle with in the first place? If you’re in Japan, you might think to go to a soapland or some other kind of brothel, but then you’d have to deal with all that sex when you really just want to close your eyes and rest in the warmth of another’s body.
But wait! Before you resign yourself to another lonely night of shedding tears on your Rei Ayanami dakimakura, why not stop by Soineya, Japan’s first “co-sleeping specialty shop,” where customers can pay to sleep in the arms of a beautiful girl—with no strings attached.
Soineya (literally, “sleep together shop”) opened its doors on Sept 25 in none other than Akihabara, Tokyo’s electronics district, hub of otaku culture and birthplace of other eccentric establishments like maid cafés. Soineya defines itself as a “co-sleeping specialty shop,” which we’re going to denominate “cuddle cafe” because it has a better ring to it.
According to the homepage, Soineya hopes to offer patrons “the simple and ultimate comfort of sleeping together with someone.”
Of course, ultimate comfort comes at a price. Let’s take a look at the Soineya “service menu”:
