He did say the answer could be found in Air, though.

Perhaps we ought to ask whether it's the 'lolicon' convenience store after all.

I don't want to hinder anybody....but is there actually a CG with that store on it in any of the remaing three games?

What I can check up right now is only Kanon but there is a place which is match with hints. That is a CAFE BAR which is behind of the scene of crying Ayu.

... However, did it ever appear in AIR?

Yukito would be a most suited character with coffee in that game. But problem is the guy doesn't in fact have money to drink such thing. XD

Go for it. =P

Without further ado, then

Question:
Is it the Lolicon convenience store?

2005-04-23 08:26

Man, I had a no idea that those were Lolicon stores too.

Neither did I, actually. Well done to the fellow who spotted them.

Note also the 鳥野 bookstore in the Air screencap and ミラクル in the One screencap: subtle references, no doubt, to 鳥野正信 (credited as 鳥の), a Key graphics artist formerly of Leaf, and みらくる☆みきぽん, a graphics artist who famously went back to Tactics after the Key defection affair.

The only question that's left, of course, is who 'Lolicon' is a reference to =P

Congratulations to all - the answer is indeed the Lolicon convenience store chain. The key was "RORICON conbini".

For reference, I wasn't counting backgrounds like the one Keisuke identified as CGs - that should be clear from the appearance of a Lolicon on Air's high street. However, I think Eltegantis knew which CG I meant - "although I don't think it itself ever shows up in a CG, its name does":

Apparently the Lolicon chain first appeared in Dousei... I must track a copy of that down some day. It doesn't appear in Clannad, though, IIRC.

That's not a 鳥野 bookshop, though, AstCd2 - it's 島野. The kanji's not very readable, but you can see the romaji quite clearly over the window.

AstCd2 2005-04-23 08:50

Ah, you're quite right.
Sorry, the conspiracy theorist in me must have gotten the better of me.

I trust that it's all right if the next question goes to whoever comes up with one first?

Haeleth 2005-04-23 08:56

Keisuke has begun the next round, and I've split it into a new topic. Feel free to keep using this thread to discuss the rounds that took place here, but please use "season 2" for new games.
