VN of the Year 2019 - Realive

2019 hit the new bottom in many aspects and marked the beginning of COVID era, so there was a noticeable loss in attention for visual novels by the end of it. I counted only 13 masterpieces, could not even get 100 openings in Visual Novel Openings 2019 . Without a clear favorite I'll call Realive VN of the Year .   My list of masterpieces in 2019: AI: The Somnium Files Kanzume Shoujo no Shuumatsu Sekai Kimagure Temptation

Will VNs bring about a revolution in social games? A look at Heaven Burns Red and Tribe Nine.

Welcome back to my blog. Introduction You might have seen a few headlines about Heaven Burns Red and Tribe Nine, two upcoming mobile games from writers Maeda Jun and Kodaka Kazutaka. These aren't just your average games. They're ambitious ventures that blur the line between visual novel and social (AKA gacha) game. So I'm here today to talk about exactly why VNs fans should pay close attention to the potential of these two upcoming games, given both how unique their stories c

VN of the Month December 2019 - Musicus!

Musicus! is the only game I can point out. Micchi lists all of Aikotoba , Cafe Stella to Shinigami no Chou , Animal☆Panic and Suzukuri Karin-chan   1. Shin Sakura Taisen 新サクラ大戦 [191212] Sega 1 The stage is set in a steampunk version of 1940s Imperial Tokyo.

Reading Ginharu Very Slowly #19

Bet you thought this blog was long dead? Unfortunately not. Now that the translation project seems to be dead in the water, I've decided it's time to finish this VN and bring this blog back.  My Japanese powers have doubled since the last time I read this in Japanese, so it's actually going a lot smoother this time around. It's also nice that DeepL exists now, it's incredibly helpful when I'm having trouble figuring out what the hell they're trying to say in some convoluted sentence or something

VN of the Month November 2019 - Shiraha Kirameku Koi Shirabe

An average chunige Shiraha Kirameku Koi Shirabe still wins over an average charage for me. Micchi likes all of Docchi no i ga Suki desu ka , ChuSingura46+1 Wacchi to Onii-chan no Raburabu Nagaya Seikatsu and some fandisc.   1. Yuusha to Odore! ~Bocchi no Ore ga Isekai Shoukan Sarete Bishoujo-tachi to Gakuen Saikyou Party o Kumimashita~ 勇者と踊れ!  ~ぼっちの俺が異世界召喚されて美少女たちと学園最強パーティを組みました~ [191129] catwalk 1 Kyou’s adoptive parents passed away suddenly in an accident, leaving him at a

Itsumi・Mirai・Milky Legend Review

For this week VNTS Review title since we have Ninki Seiyuu released and that the opening song was sang by Eri Sendai (Who also voiced one of the heroine in Ninki Seiyuu), I decided to parodied one of her song that was sang by her. I'll elaborate more on the title more at PS later, although perhaps you can guess what I parodied from the title alone (It's one of Precure vocal song in case you need an answer). As for this week, well Shiravune did release Ninki Seiyuu so at least this week is still

VN of the Month October 2019 - Raillore no Ryakudatsusha

Gratz on hitting the new bottom with just three releases. Raillore no Ryakudatsusha is the only notable one. Micchi notes Ai Kiss and two releases with shifted dates.   1. Ai Kiss アイキス [191025] Giga The protagonist, Ikenaga Ren returns after several years away from his hometown, returns to enroll in the Private Arimori Academy, an art school. On the first day of school, he unexpectedly reunites with the two of his childhood friends with whom he used to paint illustrat

VN of the Month September 2019 - Kimagure Temptation

Kimagure Temptation is good enough to be VN of the Month , or it may easily be AI: The Somnium Files if you can stand investigation games. Micchi also gives a chance to Cross Concerto and Study § Steady   1. Cross Concerto  クロスコンチェルト [190901] クロスコンチェルト Applique 1 It was spring, the season of new beginnings. Satoru finally broke free from the closed remote village where he had been held captive as an unwanted child, and entered the

Sora no Baroque 虚空のバロック [light]

I read Sora no Baroque blindly just because I could not believe light company would release something really terrible. Somehow, I had high hopes for it despite all the worrying signs. Not going to be a coherent review, just thoughts. Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwGwDxf37gEmJK5veUbZxoR5sjPFd2QCO     I don't want to rate Sora no Baroque. The reason is that it's just not the genre I can rate like I can't rate nukige or loliconge. I don't want to have anythi

Gi(a)rlish Pop Review

As for this week VNTS Review since we have Shiravune announce the exact release date for Ninki Seiyuu and that it's another VN with the focus on the VA (Translation Notes: Seiyuu mean VA), I decided to parodied another anime that depict the behind the scene for seiyuu 'Gi(a)rlish Number' (Coincidentally both Gi(a)rlish Number and Ninki Seiyuu has same situation) in that I changed 'Number' into 'Pop' so we have 'Gi(a)rlish Pop' as this week VNTS Review title (The word 'Pop' is from the localized

VN of the Month August 2019 - Wakaba-iro no Quartet

You know August... my conspiracy theory is that Micchi stopped doing monthly overviews just to skip doing August 2020. Jokes aside, anything that is not a doujin or a straight up nukige is automatically the winner in August. And that anything is Wakaba-iro no Quartet . Micchi adds Wanko no Yomeiri and another straight up lolicon nukige.   1. NinNinDays [190808 ] iMel Inc. 1 Known only as "Ninja", these mysterious mercenaries have worked i

VN of the Month July 2019 - Ren'ai, Karichaimashita

If we count only finished products, Ren'ai, Karichaimashita and maybe Kokorone=Pendulum! with the right mood take the upper hand. Micchi is also interested in Ryuusei World Actor and Study§Steady   1. Lost:Smile: Memories + Promises [190708] LIFE0 1 Six Love, One Truth Hoshimijima— A beautiful island of stars and sea located at the southern end of Japan. The island where my fa

VN of the Month June 2019 - Tasogare no Folclore

Tasogare no Folclore is the only masterpiece in June. Micchi also finds Tsuki no Kanata de Aimashou , Iegami Nyoubou ~Koisuru Inaba wa Kinpatsu Usagi~ and some loliconge fandisc worthy of notice.   1. Yumeutsutsu Re:Master 夢現Re:Master [190613] Kogado Studio 1 2 Dreams and Reality Re:Master is a bubbly-cute girls love adventure game about game developers. Our last two games in the Nurse Love Addiction series focused on professional life wi

VN of the Month May 2019 - Tamayura Mirai

Tamayura Mirai is the only suitable title for me, although Micchi has all the right to also appreciate D.C.4 ~Da Capo 4~ , Girls Book Maker and Renran Spirichu .   1. Aikano ~Yukizora no Triangle~  アイカノ ~雪空のトライアングル~ [190531] Prekano The former track and field club member Shun attended school with his childhood friend Shizuri and close friend Koharu. However, they had just one more year together before they graduate and possibly go their separate

Harem Nursery Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and for the title I just combined 'Harem' from HaremKingdom along with 'Nursery' from Nursery Rhyme so we have 'Harem Nursery' as this week VNTS Review title (It should goes without saying that I didn't mean to review the painting 'Nursery in the Harem' that was painted by Vincent Stiepevich). As for this week, we have some news other than the obvious HaremKingdom release by Shiravune, in that one of the notable news is the updates from Sekai in that they have s

VN of the Month April 2019 - Kanzume Shoujo no Shuumatsu Sekai

Kanzume Shoujo no Shuumatsu Sekai  and Missing-X-Link ~Ten no Yurikago, Togi no Hana~ are both strong titles from this fruitful April. Micchi can't have enough of 9-nine- Haruiro Harukoi Harunokaze , Koioto Se Piace and Tonari ni Kanojo no Iru Shiawase ~Summer Surprise~   1. Eve: Rebirth Terror [190425] El Dia Story Summary Peaceful days have returned.

VN of the Month March 2019 - Realive

Realive is the only masterpiece I can vouch for. Micchi adds Aonatsu Line and pieces/Wataridori no Somnium to the list of interest.   1. LoveR  LoveR(ラヴアール)[190314] Kadokawa Games 1 Romance. Record. A new love begins… The summer of your second year of high school. You happen to meet six girls. And then… love. A future of romance?

VN of the Month February 2019 - Swallowtail -Ano Hi, Ao o Koete-

I'll only mention Swallowtail -Ano Hi, Ao o Koete- as a worthy game for me. Micchi goes all out with Evenicle 2 , Happiness! 2 Sakura Celebration  , SPIRAL!! , Yume to Iro de Dekiteiru and even Aibeya   1. Aibeya  アイベヤ [190222] Azarashi Soft “Starting from tomorrow, you’ll be staying at Aki’s place” After Kouta’s mother suddenly said that, he ended up living with his childhood friend Aki.

Beat Diviner Sayaka Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for this week because we have Shiravune released 'Onmyoji in the Otherworld: Sayaka's Story' I decided to parodied Alicesoft Beat series because the similarities of both VN when it come to the main heroine got the power (Through sex), so we have 'Beat Diviner Sayaka' as this week VNTS Review title (For a bit of translation note, in Sengoku Rance Onmyoji was translated as 'Diviner' in the older translation while Arunaru keep it as 'Onmyoji' for Mangagamer

Sorceress*Alive! ~the World's End Fallen Star~ and Sakura, Moyu. -As the Night's, Reincarnation- are the only masterpieces. Micchi also does not mind Sugar*Style ,  love clear and a delayed title.   1. NekoMiko ねこみこ [190124] iMel Inc. 1 2 Nekofuku Shrine is a small shrine located in a corner of Akihabara. It is dedicated to 2 cats that are said to bring in good fortune and expel any misfortune. The legend goes that 2 cats came to

VN of the Year 2018 - Butterfly Seeker

Rather modest year, overall. There are still as many as 17 masterpieces, but number of games has decreased significantly, and I barely got 100 openings in Visual Novel Openings 2018 . Without a strong chunige title I'll opt out for the strongest mystery title as VN of the Year, and that's Butterfly Seeker .   My list of masterpieces in 2018: AI Love: Koisuru Otome wa Kikaijikake Butterfly Seeker Curio Dealer Haru t

VN of the Month December 2018 - Kotonoha Maichiru Natsu no Koe

Kotonoha Maichiru Natsu no Koe with all its flaws is still the only candidate worthy of mention . Micchi gives a chance to other charage of the month - Sora ni Kizanda Parallelogram and Hinekuremono no Gakuen Seishun Monogatari   1. Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz ダイダロス:ジ・アウェイクニング・オブ・ゴールデンジャズ [181213] Arc System Works 1 2 3 It was a month ago when Kyosuke Jinguji was found murdered.

As for this week, we have a number of significant updates when it come to fan translation such as the aforementioned Axanael or Akagoei, while at the same time there's no much update from official side other t
