Kagerou Touryuuki 霞外籠逗留記 [raiL-soft]

Kagerou Touryuuki 霞外籠逗留記 [raiL-soft]

Foreword: I'm not a big fan of raiL-soft, absolutely hate Albatross Koukairoku. But their first game Kagerou Touryuuki is probably the best game ever done by them. Synopsis: The main character regains his consciousness and finds himself being on a small boat. A girl on the boat tells him, "You're going to the place you wished." Where he arrives is an old hotel. While he stays there, he meets various girls. And as time passes, he needs to decide if he stays or leaves there..

If My Heart Had Stars: Observation Diary Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (08/23/2020) Before going to my VNTS Review for this week, let me try to comment on Zakabox at VNTS below. For Evenicle 2 demo censorship, let's just say that both Twitter and Steam did have a lot of complain in regard of the censorship. Also surprisingly 4chan was quite reasonable at this time, which is good to me because I find that some comments in regard of censorship are quite out of control. The sex scene that was cut is plot relevant, with Alex

The Other 4chan VN

Lesser known than its more popular sister, The Dandelion Girl is another VN that at least started its development by anonymous users on 4chan. And like Katawa Shoujo it's quite good, although very different. And in fact, I think it contrasts quite nicely with Katawa Shoujo. Katawa Shoujo very intentionally strove to conform to the standard visual novel formula. Hence why it takes place in Japan, in a high school, has branching routes with various heroines, and even included H-scenes. I thin

Aion Garden [LiLiM]

Aion Garden [LiLiM]

Foreword: LiLiM is an old and curious brand that produces high quality works of different genres. This work is chunige, so I can't pass by it.  Synopsis: "The bizarre murder which continues happening in a town. The town close to you. It is another world. And I meet you." Waking up in a tranquil town, there is a bizarre murder case. The atrocity of the reoccurring homicides is revealed as it comes to this town. But in this town lives a

The Grisaia Series is Kind of Genius

Until it's not. HA! GOT YOU, YOU STUPID SHIT! I pulled you into false sense of security and BAM! subverted your expectations!    Before you go on, I want you to know that this will have spoilers to all 3 The Fruit of Grisaia games so quickly read all of them and come back if you haven't already.   But anyways, I decided to delve a little bit into the anime of Grisaia no Kajitsu and while the opening text displayed over each character as they are presented on screen I began to

Nidaime wa ☆ Mahou Shoujo 二代目は☆魔法少女 [Sumikko Soft]

Foreword: Took this game for review because could not understand the gist of the game from synopsis or reviews. Synopsis: The magical world, Ninkyonasa. That existence of this peaceful world relied upon the kind heart of the people in the real world. But in the present time where people only thinks of themselves and losing their thoughtfulness: Otokogi, this magical world was in danger of vanishing… In order to save that world, a magical girl was sent to the real wo

Executive Screaming Show Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (08/16/2020) Foreword - Since we have VNTS at the main page, I'd add the link like usual above and therefore technically I made an early VNTS Review. As for Mimei, I would say that it really slipped past my radar so I'll try to talk about it at next VNTS Review, although I don't know much though other than it's written by True Remembrance author. As for the title, well I just combined the role that the heroine have from the nukige that was released by Ch

Why I haven't posted recently? (a new addiction)

Needless to say, when I hit my latest speed bump in the form of another partial burnout on VNs, I was left wondering what to do with all that free time.  For about forty hours of that time, it was Ghost of Tsushima, but when that was over, I accidentally picked up my first litrpg on Kindle Unlimited... and oh god, I almost wish I hadn't. The problem, when I analyze it in retrospect, is that my fondness for anime like SAO, Log Horizon, and Overlord had primed me perfectly, my addictive perso

Beat Blades Haruka - Visual Novel Review

Beat Blades Haruka - Visual Novel Review

The game has 88 base scenarios. Each scenario has 3 variations as it develops in intensity. For example “Serving the baseball team” is the setup, but it has three forms. The first is a simple blowjob while the last is a total gangbang. Altogether there are 150+ sex scenes. Counting scenarios, Haruka has 37 scenes. Narika has 29 scenes. Subaru has 13 scenes. And there are 9 miscellaneous scenes. Sex is divided into three categories. Loving sex is very direct, with lots of kissing and eye con

Samayou Mitama ni Yasuragi no Toki o 彷徨う魂に安らぎの刻を [DisAbel]

Foreword: Game looks like a chunige, so why not try it. Synopsis:  Shinobu Shindou was an ordinary highschool student. Except for the fact that he lost his memory 3 years ago. He heard that it had to do with an accident that occured back then. The shrine that he lived in burnt down, his parents passed away, and he was heavily injured. But even though it was a big incident, no one knew what caused it. Shinobu didn’t remember what happe

Rui wa Tomo o Yobu るいは智を呼ぶ [Akatsuki Works]

Foreword: Took this game blindly for review just because I consider Coμ a full 10/10 masterpiece and want to see what games preceded it. Synopsis:  Wakutsu Tomo was brought up by his mother as a girl due to a small mark he has on his body. After his mother's death, he discovers via her will that she emphasizes Tomo continue to live as a female, and following this, Tomo starts to go through more troubles in his life. Tomo soon discovers that he is linked with five girls who

The Function of Ellipses in VNs

VNs sometimes get criticized for their overuse of the ellipse (…). And I suppose I'll start my defense of the use of ellipses in VNs, by extending an olive branch. VNs do misuse the ellipse to an astounding degree, and I have an interesting little anecdote demonstrating this point. In college, me and some friends decided to spend a Friday night getting drunk and reading the worst VNs we could find. We stumbled upon Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme. There is a LOT wrong with this VN, but a glari

Kozue's Bizarre Adventure Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (08/09/2020) Foreword - Looks like we finally have VNTS again even though the format is different, so I'll link it like back in the past. I hope that Zakamutt can keep it up. Welcome to this week VNTS Review and since I recently see some Jojo meme (And check some of the anime along with the manga), I decided to parodied the franchise in question by changing 'Jojo' into 'Kozue'. For the info Kozue here is the MC of Kozue's Strange Journey that was release

Stellaren II (Western VN Review)

Stellaren II (Western VN Review)

Stellaren, released exclusively to mobile devices in 2017 was an important game in my engagement with VNs. A dark sci-fi adventure with a captivating setting and a tense, at times brutal story stood out significantly from most other visual novels available for smartphones and I think to this day is one of the best dedicated Android/iOS games of its kind [you can find my detailed review of it here]. It also cemented my love for VNs as a storytelling formula and while some of that infatuation was

BIFRONTE~Kugaitou Kitan~ ~公界島奇譚~ [Lapis Blue.]

Foreword: I was impressed with art and dark atmosphere of the game, but chose it because wanted to know the plot. Synopsis:  There is a small island called Kugaitou. Several decades ago, a man moved there and secretly formed a religious group. He was soon revered by people on the island and the group got bigger. Souichirou, the main character, was born and grew up there.... Time passes.... Souichirou is about to move to Tokyo. Just a few days before he leaves, he and his fr

Chrono Belt クロノベルト -あやかしびと&BulletButlers クロスオーバーディスク- [Propeller]

Foreword: Never faced crossovers in visual novels before, so expectations ranged from weird fandisk to something like Soukou Akki Muramasa since I rated both original games high. Synopsis:  Depending on which route you choose, you start out as either Alfred Arrowsmith, after his united front with Rick against Gustave, or Kuki Youkou after his final confrontation with Soushichi. Ungaikyou (literary means the mirror beyond the clouds), a youkai made from the failure attempt o

Kisaragi Gold Flowers Review

Because of Flowers Autumn release and that I already said that I'll combined Saga Planets season VNs with 'Flowers', we have 'Kisaragi Gold Flowers' as this week VNTS Review and obviously I parodied Kisaragi Gold Star in that it represent autumn. For a bit more translation note, we can also translate Kisaragi as 'like the moon' with one of the kanji writing have 'moon' kanji. For on how it have the connection with autumn, it's from Japanese culture in that one of their autumn tradition is moon v

Gouen no Soleil 鋼炎のソレイユ-ChaosRegion-[SkyFish]

Foreword: Could not miss probably the best game in the series. All conceptual things are given in a different review (1), so I'll slack with just an impression. Synopsis:  There are two different worlds... They are quite similar, but conflicting with each other. One of the world is called the World of White Silver that exists independently. However, the other world coexists with other worlds, closely affecting each other. People of these worlds hate to be invaded by others.
 

VN of the Month April 2008 - Gouen no Soleil -Chaos Region-

Gouen no Soleil -Chaos Region- is VN of the Month that I take for review. 11eyes -Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shoujo-  is another masterpiece. I consider Chaos;Head so bad that it's nowhere near masterpiece material. 1. Boku Dake no Kajitsu 僕だけの果実 [080403] JIN Products The story of a man and three women and the training they partake in... "Come on, I will teach you true love".

Phantom Trigger no Rakuen Vol. 1 Review

As for this week title since we have Phantom Trigger Volume 7 was released by Frontwing and that it's supposed to be the finale, I decided to just combined Phantom Trigger with the last part of Grisaia trilogy (So-called) so that we have 'Phantom Trigger no Rakuen'. As for 'Vol. 1' part, turned out that the ending was sort of ended in a cliffhanger and will continue in the next chapter hence 'Vol. 1' as the subtitle. As for this week, other than Phantom Trigger Volume 7 release we have a lot of
