    Fabulous on Fuwa - February!

    By Kaguya

    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. From snazzy blog articles to delicious forum threads, and perhaps even a few things more on the shitpost part of the spectrum, we'll keep an eye out for the cream of the crop. And then we'll gather them here. Just for you.   *holds up giant APPLAUSE sign*   A-hem, so this is the f

VN of the Month October 2012 - Chuuning Lover

Can point out only Chuuning Lover this month, and Chuunibyou topic flourishes with the anime airing. Micchi , on the other hand, has lots of appealing works like Koiiro Marriage , Shukufuku no Kane no Oto wa, Sakurairo no Kaze to Tomo ni , Tsuki ni Yorisou .   1. NOeSIS02 -uka- NOeSIS02-羽化- [121024] cutlass 1   A continuation of NOeSIS ~Uso o Tsuita Kioku Monogatari~ Doujin, but from rather known series and with kind of English review

VN of the Month September 2012 - Zero Infinity -Devil of Maxwell-

Zero Infinity -Devil of Maxwell- is VN of the month with Re:birth Colony -Lost Azurite- , SINCLIENT and Tsukumo no Kanade ~Kaketsuki no Yasoukyoku~ rivaling it. Zen was also interested in Tsujidou-san no Junai Road while Micchi unexpectedly adds Tsuisou no Augment to the area of interest alongside expected LOVELY QUEST and Pure Girl   1. Dungeon Breaker 2 ダンジョンブレイカー 2 [120902] Tamamo Studio Alex Rudolfi is a monster tamer.

VN of the Month August 2012 - Tokyo Babel

Tokyo Babel is VN of the Month while I also acknowledge Rose Guns Days as a masterpiece. Micchi is interested in Sakura, Sakimashita, some fandisc and some imoutoge   1. Corpse Party -The Anthology- Sachiko no Ren'ai Yuugi♥Hysteric Birthday 2U コープスパーティー -THE ANTHOLOGY- サチコの恋愛遊戯♥Hysteric Birthday 2U [120802] MAGES. GAME 1 2  Sachiko Shinozaki, tragically murdered at age 7; such a sweet girl, taken away at such a young and tender age!

The problem with translated and weabooist Xianxia

While reading litrpgs, I sometimes come across ones that stray into the realms of Xianxia or are simply Xianxia mislabeled as litrpgs.  Xianxia is a genre of Chinese-origin, creating a system of magic and abilities based off of Qigong practices.  Technically, stuff like Naruto and Hunter X Hunter would fall into the realm of Xianxia, given its use of many of the same concepts. Xianxia books have a number of common issues, in my opinion.  Some of them are quite enjoyable, but even the enjoya

VN of the Month July 2012 - Tiny Dungeon ~Brave or Slave~

So far can only call Tiny Dungeon ~Brave or Slave~ and Astelight Jourantan a masterpiece, and in second case in advance for the series, so not going to extend evaluation to sequels. Micchi finds a lot of imouto games to play this month.    1. Time Travelers タイムトラベラーズ [120712] Level 5 1 2  One particular day in 2013, a mysterious hole, called "Lost Hole", emerged from the sky, and along with it, came an enormous explosion that devastated the cent

VN of the Month June 2012 - Gurenka

There are as many as four masterpieces for me in June - Gurenka , Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- , Astraythem , Dolphin Divers . With a difficult choice like this I just go for the preferred genre, so it is Gurenka. Zen supports my choice and also suggests Namima no Kuni no Faust while Micchi seeks cuteness in Hatsukoi 1/1 and 1/2 summer   1. Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- ルートダブル -Before Crime * After Days- [120614] Regista 1 2 3 4 5 6

How to Live a Healthy Noble Lifestyle Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title since we have Kirikoi trial release along with Hentai Lifestyle release I decided to parodied the latter full title so we have 'How to Live a Healthy Noble Lifestyle' for the title with the 'Noble' word is from the school name in Kirikoi (Noble Private Academy, in which now I'm quite certain that the writer did took GPPC school name seeing that both schools in Kirikoi and GPPC were called 'Noble Gakuen' in Japan). As for this week, I can say

VN of the Month May 2012 - Kono Oozora ni, Tsubasa o Hirogete

There are no masterpieces this month. I feel deep aversion towards flight clubs, but if I was forced to choose among these variants, Kono Oozora ni, Tsubasa o Hirogete would still win by the sheer quality. It's also backed by Zen while Micchi prefers Supipara and Shiawase Kazoku-bu   1. Supipara すぴぱら [120518] minori 1 2 3 4 5 6  The protagonist, Sanada Yukinari, has returned to his hometown in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura City, for the f

Evolimit エヴォリミット [Propeller]

Foreword: It's always nice to read a work with a fresh concept Synopsis: You start out in a flashback, the last remaining two humans fighting against him. Of course, after that you wake up in a place unknown to you along with a bishoujo and you lost all your memories. The girl with you explains that this is no longer a world you once lived in, a world where trains, bus and bicycles no longer exists. People travel by flight, literally. Not only that, but people transforming into

Litrpg series: Apocalypse Gates and Alpha Alpha World

Recently, I've been devouring anything written by Daniel Shinhofen, the writer of the Binding Words series I recommended in a previous post.  Shinhofen is a harem specialist that can vary from having non-existent ero to full-on BDSM in his stories, but a common element to all of them is that all his protagonists end up with a harem and that harem is happy (for the most part).   Lest I make that sound like he scrimps on story, the very reverse is the case.  Every one of his series is extreme

VN of the Month April 2012 - Kouyoku no Soleil -vii’s World-

April is busy as usual even without couple nukige skipped by me. Kouyoku no Soleil -vii’s World- is the only game that I acclaim as masterpiece. Zen is justly fascinated by Mahoutsukai no Yoru, but I have a difficult history with this game and I loathe it. Micchi is dying for D.C.III and lots of other sweet stuff that I avoid listing in fear of getting diabetes.   1. Mahoutsukai no Yoru 魔法使いの夜 [120412] Type-Moon 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  “Near the end of

Senkou no Clarias

It was remarked by Veshurik recently that it seemed like I wasn't really around anymore... but that isn't really the case.  I still play VNs, but the fact is, I don't play many new VNs that I haven't already blogged about yet.  I simply can't muster enough interest to play most of the new stuff that comes out, simply because there just isn't that much that looks interesting coming out at any given time.   Senkou no Clarias, by Team Baldrhead, was the game I thought would break through my boredom

Demon Queen and the Seven Princes Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I'll explained it at PS later. For this week, I think it's less interesting seeing that there's no big release like Rance Quest although on the other hand we have Taisho x Alice Episode 3 release so perhaps it would be very interesting week for otome fans. Other than Taisho x Alice Episode 3 release, we have new project with the goal to translate Hokejo along with some updates from both fan translations (Some of those are quite big) and Sol

VN of the Month March 2012 - '&' - Sora no Mukou de Sakimasu you ni -

There are two masterpieces - Otome ga Tsumugu Koi no Canvas and '&' - Sora no Mukou de Sakimasu you ni - , but my personal preference leans to second one. By the way, one is supported by Zen and the other one by Micchi . They also anticipate Dracu-Riot and some other stuff.   1. Friends [120323] Aile Soft Hashirajima Gakuen is a historic girls’ school which turned co-ed due to the declining birthrate. However, the school remaine

VN of the Month February 2012 - Shinigami no Testament ~menuet of epistula~

I'll name Hatsuyuki Sakura , Grisaia no Meikyuu are Shinigami no Testament ~menuet of epistula~ as masterpieces with chunige taking over. Both Zen and Micchi support first two choices and also Tsukumo no Tsuki     1. Photo Kano フォトカノ [120202] Enterbrain! 1 2 3  Kazuya Maeda is a second-year high school student who takes pictures of girls with his camera that he received from his dad.

VN of the Month January 2012 - Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! S

Just 7 titles... but at least we've got Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! S . Zen sees eye to eye with me while Micchi craves for fandisc and Dousei LoverAble   1. Phase-D: Souka no Shou Phase D 蒼華の章 [120126] BOOST ON 1 There are four phases of human existence. From conception to birth is called Phase A. From birth to death is called Phase B. From death to disappearance of the corpse is Phase C. And last, remnant after the death, sepa

VN of the Year 2011

Year 2011 is a hurricane of great titles. My initial pick contained 20 masterpieces, but had to widen this selection up to 28 with some additional feedback since I can't sample it all on my own at the moment and there are genres I just can't force myself to play. Visual Novel Openings 2011 with songs just because.  My list of masterpieces in 2011: Aiyoku no Eustia Bloody Rondo Dengeki Stryker Duelist engage Dunamis 15

Stocks and Devil II Review

Since we have Rance Quest release in which it has one of the character as the devil along with that we have Spice and Wolf DS release, I decide to reuse the title of VNTS Review from back at 2016 so we have 'Stocks and Devil II' as this week VNTS Review title and 'II' is the roman number for 2 in order to synchronize it with the title for Spice and Wolf II anime. As for the explanation of the title, the devil here is from the saying that sometimes wolf is associated with devil, while for the sto

VN of the Month December 2011 - Hotel.

Hotel. is the only masterpiece for me in December. Micchi highlights some RPG and - naturally - a game about 345 imoutos   1. Ever17 [111201] CyberFront 1 Ever17 is the tale of seven individuals who come to be trapped 153 feet within the underwater marine theme park, LeMU. During an apparently normal day at the park, a massive accident happens, placing almost half of the facility underwater. The path to the surface and the communication l

Ouka Sengoku! ~Nobunaga-chan no Koishite Yabou!?~ 桜花センゴク!~信長ちゃんの恋して野望!?~ [Apricot]

Foreword: When I face Sengoku feminization in anime I facepalm and look away, but this setting was not as frequent back in the past, so it fascinates me to try and find that one source that impressed followers so much. Synopsis: Mitsuhide is an extremely poor ‘student ronin’ who gets by via part-time jobs. One day, he receives an enrollment letter to Sengoku Gakuen and readily accepts it. On his first day, a girl named Nobunaga points her sword at him: “How dare you show your face t

VN of the Month November 2011 - Yurikago yori Tenshi made

Yurikago yori Tenshi made is VN of the Month. Another notable masterpiece is Hanachirutani Sanjinkou . Legend Seven ~Shirayuki Hime to Shichinin no Eiyuu~ would also fit those who liked Schatten. Zen finds merit in Mareni writing while Micchi goes full-scale moe with Shunki Gentei Poco a Poco, Hare Tokidoki Otenki-ame and even Sonicomi   1. Dare ga Koroshita Komadori o 誰が殺したコマドリを [111118] Smile Senki 1 Kotori is a reserved schoolgir

I Am War: An Exploration of an Archetype

“War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.” ~Judge Holden (Blood Meridian) “My love is destruction. Its flames ache to devour all that exist: Heaven and Hell, God and Satan; all things in Creation, from the first universe that was, to the last that will ever be.” ~Reinhard Heydrich (Dies Irae)   The archetype of a sentient embodiment of war continues to persist, and has morphed considerably from its my

VN of the Month October 2011 - Izuna Zanshinken

Izuna Zanshinken is VN of October. But I also see merit in Midori no Umi . Zen and Micchi promote these two games as well while also picking Renai 0 Kilometer and some fandisc.   1. AKB1/48: Idol to Guam de Koishitara... AKB1/48 アイドルとグアムで恋したら・・・ [111006] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. Dating is something the AKB girls are not allowed to do. But for you, they are going to make an exception. This summer, the girls invite you to the tropical parad
