    Introduction   Welcome, fellow Fuwamembers, to the FuwaRecognition thread. Starting this March, we’ll be highlighting some of the best contributions made by our members each month.

The Helpful Maid Eve-san Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and since we have Love Lab released Maid Loving You, I'll just parodied the recently finished The Helpful Kitsune Senko-san because I remember that manga after I read Maid for Loving You premise (Especially with both male MC are office workers), so we have 'The Helpful Maid Eve-san' as the title because we obviously have a maid and said maid name is Eve. As for this week, while obviously there's Mangagamer announcements along with some other releases and new pro

Genre – Otome, Mystery, Drama.   Play Time – 35 hours.   Developer – Otomate and Design Factory.    Steam     VNDB   Reinvigorating The Cliché   Using amnesia as plot device is a common tactic by many creators who want to put the protagonist on the same level as the player, but its use rarely goes beyond being an excuse for exposition.

Towa's Bizarre Adventure: Mithril is Unbreakable Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (20/11/2022) Since Slow Damage MC (Towa) VA is also Josuke's VA from Jojo Part 4 (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable), I may as well made some Jojo reference here by obviously change 'Jojo' with 'Towa', so we have 'Towa's Bizzare Adventure' here. As for 'Mithril', it's from Soukoku no Arterial in that it has the setting that the major company in the game has been produced mithril as their main source of income, so I'd change 'Diamond' into 'Mith

Tokeijikake no Rakuen Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (13/11/2022) Like back at my last VNTS Review when Tokeijikake Daybreak released, once again I decided to make parody of one of Grisaia VN and obviously it's Grisaia no Rakuen. The reason is simply because Rakuen here is the last part of Grisaia trilogy and Tokeijikake Morning Mist here is also the last part of the trilogy, so we have 'Tokeijikake no Rakuen' as this week VNTS Review title. Anyway welcome to this week VNTS Review and compared to the last week

Anime of the Year 1995-IV Fall - Koukaku Kidoutai

Koukaku Kidoutai is the second genius masterpiece I can proclaim , plus this season sees the start of Neon Genesis Evangelion even though its first half was not outstanding   1. Neon Genesis Evangelion 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン  [Gainax, Tatsunoko Production] (Finished 26/26) Tags: Mecha, Psychological Action, Avant Garde, Award Winning, Drama, Sci-Fi, Suspense Fifteen years after a

The Bad Ending – An Anatomy of Visual Novels

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   When Everything Goes Wrong   A good story is often defined by its ending and a bad one can be redeemed by it. Visual novels are no exception to this rule and must contend with this opportunity multiple times over the course of the game. The most common form of endings used in visual novels are the Good and True Endings, but there are also some games which use Bad Endings. This kind of e

Random Translation: Anata no Tenshoku wa 'Daiyoukai' Desu Chapter 2

[Hey, your Mom is an evil woman (toxic woman)!] [I... I can't argue with that.] (Move... Move!  Move!  Move, please!  If I don't move now...!!) He tries to move his legs to get away from the three approaching him. However, he can't move. His body won't move an inch.  It is as if he's being tied down by an invisible something. (What is this!?  What is this!?  This is... what is it...?  It's as if I'm being enveloped in something...) At that moment, something was refl

Hyouko Screaming Show Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (06/11/2022) As for this week title, since we've about to have Gore Screaming Show (GSS) release in a week along with a big update in regard of Lupercalia, I'd change the word 'Gore' with 'Hyouko' so we have 'Hyouko Screaming Show'. The reason is because in Lupercalia we have a theater actress Hyouko recite her lines, and she recite it by screaming so yeah it's literally the screaming show (The video of Hyouko recite her lines). Welcome to this week VNTS Revi

October 2022 Reviews & Articles

『••••• RECAP •••••』 In the blink of an eye, spooky month is over... 👻 Last month was more of an art month for me. Hopefully I will be getting back to getting more review and article writing done this month. Anyway, in my first blog post here, I said I was going to focus on only visual novel content for this newsletter-like blog. I then realized the blogs on Fuwanovel forums can be used for pretty much anything! So I am going to do just that; I won't be just sharing my reviews and artic

To the Blue Universe Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (30/10/2022) Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and if I may conclude this week I can definitely say that it's an interesting one because of Nekonyan's announcements, although I can't exactly say that it's an exciting one because some of the announcements are smaller compared to their previous announcements. That said though besides Nekonyan's announcements (That I still look forward into), we also have several releases with the most notable one is Alpha Night

[TL] Why does this umbrella haunt me? – by Watanabe Ryouichi

Original: https://watanabefuckin.fanbox.cc/posts/4653898 Watanabe Ryouichi is the idiosyncratic writer of several well-known visual novels like the -kuru series, parts of Aokana, and many others, but did you know that he also has a fanbox where he just writes random stuff? I was strangely inspired by this umbrella story when I read it this morning, so here’s a translation. Let us hope I managed to capture at least some of his style. Or at least supplanted it with another fun style. Either wo

The Common Route – An Anatomy of Visual Novels

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   In The Beginning    If there is one structural element which is used by most visual novels it is the Common Route. This linear opening section contains the choices which decide the route you will be sent on as well as providing world and character building setup so that the routes can focus on their specific hero/heroine.

Future Radio and the Artificial Rose Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (23/10/2022) Welcome to this week VNTS Review. As for this week, compared to the last week to be honest this week is kind of plain even though it has two releases, because both releases are short nukige in which obviously it's not my interest. Of course though there's still several updates happening, such as usual fast H2O progress and several new release estimation from Aksys announcements. Speaking of the announcements, Nekonyan will hold panel together wit
