    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.

And then we'll gather them here. Just for you.   *holds up giant APPLAUSE sign*   A-hem, so this is the f

Valkyrie Profile Hollow Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and for the info this is not my review on new Valkyrie Profile game but instead I combined both of Walkure Romanze and Venus Blood Hollow for the title, so we have Valkyrie Profile Hollow as this week VNTS Review title (For the info 'Walkure' is Germany (And Japanese as well) word for Valkyrie). As for this week, well I can say that this week we didn't have many update from the official companies but instead we have more updates from fan translation. That said,

VN of the Month January 2018 - Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni

Clephas chose Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni and I also embrace this opinion for now till I play Sora no Baroque myself. Shogun-sama wa Otoshigoro is another masterpiece. Micchi is enthralled by Soi Kano ~Gyutto Dakishimete~ and a loli nukige   1. Aikagi ~After Days~ アイカギ ~アフターデイズ~ [180126] Azarashi Soft Nozomu and his childhood friend Shiori became lovers after the Christmas confession. They had been attending the same university since the followi

VN of the Year 2017 - Suisei Ginka

Year 2017 is probably the last great year with respectable number of releases each month and almost 20 masterpieces. Clephas ended up choosing Aoi Tori, but I generally choose some chunige, so it's Suisei Ginka this time.  Visual Novel Openings 2017 .   My list of masterpieces in 2017: Ai Yori Aoi Umi no Hate Aoi Tori Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil Bakumatsu Jinchuu Houkoku Resshiden Miburo

VN of the Month December 2017 - Bakumatsu Jinchuu Houkoku Resshiden Miburo

Bakumatsu Jinchuu Houkoku Resshiden Miburo does not have serious contestants in a Comiket month and is VN of the Month. Kin'iro Loveriche is another masterpiece. Clephas had somewhat the same vision. Micchi prioritized Koi ni, Kanmi o Soete, Natural Vacation and Kin-iro Loveriche   1. Sangoku Hime 5 ~Hishou Kourin Senkou no Toushin~ 三極姫5 ~飛将光臨・戦煌の闘神~ [171208] Gesen 18 1  Girl incarnations of famous Chinese generals continue to help main c

Turnabout Invasion Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title since we have Great Ace Attorney released in English along with Senmomo new translation project in that it has the premise that the aftermath of the empire after the invasion I decided to make the title as 'Turnabout Invasion' (For the info all Ace Attorney cases has the word 'Turnabout'). Compared t the last week, well this week is surely is a calm one although of course we still have some updates here with the biggest one is the release of

VN of the Month November 2017 - Aoi Tori

Aoi Tori , Kizuna Kirameku Koi Iroha  , Yoru Meguru, Bokura no Maigo Kyoushitsu are all decent choices within their genres, but I should agree with Clephas about the first one being the winner. Micchi feels the same, but adds lighter ones like Making*Lovers , Maho×Roba -Witches spiritual home- , Abnormal Lovers and Yurameku Kokoro ni Michita Sekai de, Kimi no Yume to Yokubou wa Kanau ka   1. Occultic;Nine オカルティック・ナイン [171109] MAGES. GAME Shikura

VN of the Month October 2017 - Yami to Hikari no Sanctuary

Yami to Hikari no Sanctuary is VN of the Month with Kanojo wa Tenshi de Imouto de being another masterpiece. Clephas actually chose both. Micchi favors Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart 2 , Tsugihagi Make Peace and a delayed title   1. Arui wa Koi to Iu Na no Mahou あるいは恋という名の魔法 [171027] Omochi Soft Three beautiful princesses came from another world which was built on magic rather than science. Their world was currently facing an unprecedented c

VN of the Month September 2017 - Oni ga Kuru. ~Ane ga Hinshi de Pinchi Desu~

Oni ga Kuru. ~Ane ga Hinshi de Pinchi Desu~ is VN of the Month and Omokage Railback is another masterpiece. Clephas was choosing between these two with such outcome. Micchi leans towards Sakura Hitohira Koi Moyou , Seven Days and a fandisc.   1. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! -Kono Yokubukai Game ni Shinpan o!- この素晴らしい世界に祝福を! -この欲深いゲームに審判を!- [170907] MAGES. GAME The series follows a boy who is sent to a fantasy world following his death,

Dungeons & Daimeiwaku 大迷宮&大迷惑 -GREAT EDGES IN THE ABYSS- [Liar-soft]

Foreword: I'm a fan of DnD , Wizardry 8 and Japanese Wizardry series, so I could not just pass by Dungeons & Daimeiwaku. As for Mareni writing, it's a stamp of minimally acceptable quality although without a normal story it can easily go astray. Synopsis: In the world of sword of magic, expert miners discovered an underground labyrinth in a remote area of the continent. “The Abyss” is very huge inside, full of monsters and traps. However, it was rumoured that ancient treasure

Sore ga Imouto! Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for this week I'll tell it at PS later. As for this week, we have a lot of updates seeing that both of Mangagamer and Aksys did announce their new licenses along with both of Nekonyan and Sekai did update some of their VNs. On the other hand though, compared to the last week there's no much releases so I suppose it balanced out. Overall once again this week is quite exciting to a degree because of a number new VNs announcements, and let's see what I can w

VN of the Month August 2017 - Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil

Another August capitulates before the doujins. Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil is the only normal game and winner by default. Did not find Clephas winner for August, but it's ether the same or fandisc or none. Micchi is more interested in Kotonoha Amrilato and fandisc.   1. Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 -Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo- 大逆転裁判2 -成歩堂龍ノ介の覺悟- [170803] Capcom 1 2 3 4 Two months after the events of the previous game, Susato Mikotoba l

VN of the Month July 2017 - Hikari no Umi no Apeiria

Hikari no Umi no Apeiria is the only masterpiece in July 2017. Clephas also thought so. Micchi on the other hand finds Hatsujou Sprinkle , Shin Koihime†Musou -Kakumei- Souten no Haou and O-uchi ni Kaeru Made ga Marshmallow Desu to be worthy.   1. Aoiro Note アオイロノート [170728] ad:lib Takuya entered Shikizaka Gakuen this spring. One day after school, he saw his classmate Misora inconspicuously putting up a club recruitment poster in the

Pretty Idol Sailor Usagi Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as we can see this week is quite big with several companies decided to do several releases at once so obviously this week is quite exciting here. Other than releases, of course there's also some updates as well along with Nekonyan's new planned release (Even though it's not as interesting as their usual planned releases). Let's see what I can write in regard of this week here, and I'll tell the reason for the title at PS later even though it should be obviou

VN of the Month June 2017 - Ai Yori Aoi Umi no Hate

Clephas ended up choosing nothing, but I'll stop at Ai Yori Aoi Umi no Hate , will need to eventually review it. Micchi only pointed at delayed titles and one fandisc.   1. Shiin 死印 [170601] Experience 1 2 3 The Tokyo metropolitan area's H City. In this suburban city, a strange rumor has been spreading recently. Those who possess the «mark» will die. The «mark» is unexpectedly engraved onto the body, as if it was a chewed up birthmark, and is sa

Ama no Sora Retrospect 天ノ空レトロスペクト [GLace]

Foreword: I know I was going to review Schwarzesmarken, and I quite liked the anime version, but I see zero reason to play the game after anime. Ama no Sora Retrospect, on the other hand, seems to have zero English reviews despite the non-trivial setting, thus it fits my choice pattern nicely. Synopsis: Amanosora is a small town of around 60,000 people, formed ten years ago from the merger of the villages of Tensei and Sorami. Shikimi attends the local school with the c

VN of the Month May 2017 - ChronoBox

Kinda forgot to post May. ChronoBox made the day for me with Ojou-sama no Hanbun wa Ren'ai de Dekiteimasu!  and Newton to Ringo no Ki as other masterpieces. Clephas had the second one in mind for the winner. Micchi adds such titles as Anata ni Koisuru Ren’ai Recette and Nekopara nukige   1. Amayui Castle Meister 天結いキャッスルマイスター [170526] Eushully 1  “Magesmiths” are wizards that specialize in labyrinth construction and restorat

VN of the Month April 2017 - Tsuihou Senkyo

Clephas chose nothing for this month. But if we add console releases, Tsuihou Senkyo is good and original enough to be called VN of the Month even though I tend to dislike survival games. Micchi expectedly fell for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 and 9-nine- Kokonotsu Kokonoka Kokonoiro , while Zen favors Niizuma LOVELY×CATION and delayed titles.   1. Song of Memories [170427] Pure Wish 1 2 The game involves a mysterious virus that only

Sakura Slime Girl Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for this week since we have Sakura Forest Girl 2 released along with JAST announced the exact release date of their short nukige that featured slime girl (Mamono Musume Slime and Scylla) I just change 'Forest Girl' into 'Slime Girl' so we have 'Sakura Slime Girl' for the title. As for this week, well plain would be the right word to say it considering that there's no much updates for this week. That said it didn't mean that there's no topic to talk though

VN of the Month March 2017 - Haruru Minamo ni!

Haruru Minamo ni! is VN of the Month, let's also give credit to Hataraku Otaku no Ren'ai Jijou . Clephas has the same winner. Micchi kinda likes everything - Suisou Ginka no Istoria, TRINOLINE, Natsuiro Kokoro Log ~Happy Summer~, Koinosu☆Ichacolize .   1. Amanatsu Adolesence 甘夏アドゥレセンス [170324] Confiture Soft 1  At Kazamitou Gakuen, students are free to do as they choose and the light music club which Akira is part of is actually the

VN of the Month February 2017 - Suisei Ginka

A small month that has only one definite winner unless you like detectives - Suisei Ginka . Clephas agreed with such choice. Micchi prefers Ouka Sabaki , Shugaten! -sugarfull tempering- and some imouto nukige.   1. Chou Kagaku Dasshutsu Saihate no Cross Eyes 超科学脱出 最果てのクロスアイズ [170222] Intense 1 2 3 Months after the luxury cruise ship explosion case, the girl with two psychic powers, Hitomi Akeneno, has engaged in saving people with the psychic re

Prism Princess ~Futari no Himekishi to Kokan no Monshou~ プリズム・プリンセス ~ふたりの姫騎士と股間の紋章~[Pajamas Soft]

Foreword: Third review in a row, huh. I just had footages done beforehand. Prism Princess is a booby action with some animated H scenes which wound usually instantly put game out of my interest zone. But it has fighting heroines, plus humor is reported to be worthy, so why not check it myself. Wanted to change game several times, but found nothing to replace it within a year. Synopsis: One day, a naked girl appeared in hikikomori Naoto’s room. She stripped off his pants and

Recommendations: VNs with Psychotic characters

I love 'psychologically challenged' characters, whether they are heroines, protagonists, or antagonists.  That said, I don't mean those cookie-cutter 'villains' and 'serial killer' types when I say this.  I mean characters who are twisted up inside and as a result have a completely different outlook on life or appear inconsistent on the surface as a result.  Villain and serial killer types, who just cause harm because they want to, just aren't that interesting.  Here is a shortlist of good VNs t

Shoujo Shin'iki ∽ Shoujo Tengoku 少女神域∽少女天獄 -The Garden of Fifth Zoa- [Lass]

Foreword: Shoujo Shin'iki has some English reviews already, but they tend to focus on negative sides (1 2 3) even though game deserves better. Synopsis: Shun has always wondered what was on the other side of the stone walls surrounding and beyond the tunnel out of Kaijou-shi ever since he was a child. However, he never ventured out since every time there was an opportunity to do so, he fell ill or there was some family business. After he graduated
