    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

Tri☆Stars とらい☆すたーず [Clock Up team Lilac]

Foreword: Fighting heroines are inspiring, but I also wanted to pursue possible connections with Zwei Worter. Synopsis:  Luinstellar High School is a prestigious high school located in a magic world. One day, Kazuma, a student of the school, accidentally finds three statues of the Magi. He takes off jewels embedded into a chest of the statues. At this very moment.... The jewels go inside his body and three girls appear from the statues. Also, space-time suddenly strains and
 

Princess Frontier [AXL]

Foreword: Fantasy AXL work. Of course I'm in. Synopsis:  Ryu is a practice knight. One day, he accidentally stumbles during an important ceremony and his life turns around 180 degrees.

And he somehow enjoys his country life there through various troubles and accidents. One day, a boy comes to the village. He is arro
 

Ritter Chronicles Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for this week I combined 'Ritter' from Eden's Ritter and 'Chronicle' from Evenicle 2 so we have 'Ritter Chronicles' as this week VNTS Review because we have those two announced. Another reason for the title is that I parodied Valkyria Chronicles, in that apparently both that game and Eden's Ritter have the setting place on German although it's very loose at that (In Valkryria Chronicles Germany was supposed to be an imperial). As for this week, what I can
 

NaNoRenO 2020 Highlights, Pt 3 – Romance VNs (Non-otome Edition)

Hello there and welcome to the third and final part of my NaNoRenO 2020 highlights! While in the first two posts I focused, respectively, on otome and horror VNs, this last batch of recommendations will be about other romance stories submitted to the event. I have to admit upfront that this is likely the least exciting list of the three, with no game standing out to me in a similar way as Enamoured Risks did among otome entries or Eislyn's Apocalypse did among horror ones. However, there's still

12Riven -The Ψcliminal of Integral- [CyberFront]

Foreword: I fell in love with this game after reading a long French review a long time ago (1). Imagination went wild back then, but only now I can finally play it. Synopsis:  The story of 12Riven takes place on May 20, 2012 with Renmaru Miyabidou biking his way speedily towards the abandoned Integral building after receiving a message on his cellphone that Myuu, an old friend of his, would die at the building's top level today at noon. When he gets there, he checks his wri
 

VN of the Month March 2008 - 12Riven -The Ψcliminal of Integral-

12Riven -The Ψcliminal of Integral- is VN of the Month. I'll also call Princess Frontier and Tri☆Stars masterpieces. Reviewing all these . As for Akatsuki no Goei , it does not bear much value in isolation, just an incomplete story leaving mostly disappointment feelings. 1. Naraku no Shiro Ichiyanagi Nagomu, Nidome no Junan 奈落の城 一柳和、2度目の受難 [080306] FOG 1 After solving the Amagoushi no Yakata case, Ichiyanagi Nagomu receives an invitation from his friend Hiori to go to the
 

Aster [RusK]

Foreword: I'm not really good with nakige and you want me to play an utsuge? Oh, well, I'll try. Synopsis:  Aster tells the story of four young men, whose lives are connected by one incident. It all begins with Hiro Sakaki. He is a high school student, and enjoys his life with his old friends, Saki and Saya, twin sisters. Under the summer sun, their relationships change little by little... "There is no miracle but hope..." Youtube:https://www.youtube.
 

Silver Colored Faraway Track 5 - Lieder ohne Worte of an Elder Brother and a Younger Sister

Because we have Yuzuki's route of Ginharu finally being worked, I decided to use the title 'Silver Colored Farway' for the title and of course since it's the fifth time I use it I add 'Track 5'. For the rest, of course it's from one of Kanon 2006 episode title and in this case it's episode 17 (Lieder ohne Worte of an Elder Sister and a Younger Sister), and I'll explain the title at PS later. Anyway welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for this week I can say that it's sort of break after a n
 

Review of the Saekano VN for ps Vita and some thoughts on Oreimo happy end on PS3

First of I want to mention that the Saekano anime is one of my favorite anime of all times and as such I was quite looking forward to reading a VN based on it, though some months before I decided to read it I looked at reviews on Amazon and it didn't look too good. After having read through all of it I was really dissapointed. The Saekano VN is by far the most bland and non memorable VN I have read so far. The VN base itself of the aspects of Saekano that on the surface level is the least intere
 

Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~ すいっチ!! ~ボクがナツに想うこと~ [Colon]

Foreword: Battle CG and presumption of some other dimension made me choose this game. Synopsis:  The main character is a university student. One day, when he is asleep, he feels something strange. And when he wakes up, he finds some girls standing in front of him. What leads the girls to his room...? For what...?

Random VN: Baldr Sky Zero

Baldr Sky Zero is an entirely different animal from Baldr Sky Dive. I say this as a warning for those who are looking for a complete duplicate of the experience. Baldr Sky Dive was very much like a post-apocalypse apocalypse story in some ways, with a bunch of revenge thrown in. There is much to recommend to both duologies but they are fundamentally different in some ways. This review is of the first half of the Zero duology, which covers the Sakura, Kei, and Fran paths. I chose to review i

VN of the Month February 2008 - Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~

Why are there only six unblocked games? Guess it's just a quiet month since February 2007 had nine. Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~ is the only game with actual twist and somewhat curious plot. 1. Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~ すいっチ!! ~ボクがナツに想うこと~ [080208] Colon The main character is a university student. One day, when he is asleep, he feels something strange. And when he wakes up, he finds some girls standing in front of him. What leads the girls to his room.
 

A Certain Scientific Eleanore Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and since we have pseudo AX at this week (Because the real AX was cancelled thanks to the pandemic) I can obviously say that we'll have quite a number of announcements. Of course the number is understandably less than normal AX, but I can still say that I manage to have took my interest on some of the announcements. Other than the announcements, we also have a lot of updates from Sekai and Mangagmer especially in regard of the reveal of their secret projects. Ov
 

Garden [CUFFS]

Foreword: Was a difficult choice, in the end just chose Garden because it had slightly better scores and impressions than competitors within the month. Synopsis:  When I regained consciousness, I was lying on the bed. I didn't know what happened to me, but I felt terrible. "Are you alright?" There was a girl in front of me.... After one week, I've been transferred to a new high school. Due to some certain events, I started to distance myself from everyone. I just wa
 

Eldritch University (Yuri VN Review)

Note: I was provided with a free review copy of the game by the developer. All opinions are solely my own. Sequels to obscure, low budget EVNs are always a slightly awkward topic to tackle. They are inevitably tied to games which few people are familiar with and which can be, at least in some aspects, of subpar quality simply due to their indie nature. This makes giving a meaningful rating and recommendation for potential readers tricky – at the very least, any kind of conclusion about them
 

VN of the Month January 2008 - Fortune Arterial

Don't want to call anything a masterpiece this month, but Fortune Arterial fits the best to be VN of the Month 1. Lucky Star ~Ryouou Gakuen Outousai~ らき☆すた~陵桜学園桜藤祭~ [080124] Vridge Inc. 1 Have you ever wanted to play one of those games that Konata plays?

VN of the Year 2007 and POLL for EXTRA review

Year 2007 is great for bringing two full 10/10 masterpieces Draculius and Dies irae and many more very nice visual novels. You all know that winner is Dies irae as it's probably main visual novel of all times. First version from 2007 was quite raw, and there are some funny negative reviews from 2007-2008, but light found inner strength to polish this version and even freely give away it to original buyers. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2007 with songs. My list of masterpieces in 20
 

Melty Reflection Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I'm simply combined 'Melty' word from Melty Moment and 'Reflection' word from Summer Pockets Reflection Blue so we have 'Melty Reflection' as this week VNTS Review title. As for this week, release wise it's not as active as the last week although the updates was still manage to make up for it though. For the updates, we have usual one from fan translation and monthly one from Nekonyan, and most importantly we manage to have Irru fulfilled hi
 

Nekotsuku, Sakura

*pukes a river of sugar* *wipes his mouth clean* Ok, I'm better.  This game is very much what you would expect if you came in knowing nothing of Lump of Sugar's past works and only knew the name of the company itself.  It is sugary sweet, adorable, and generally interminable to someone who likes a nice balance between the cuteness and ichaicha and other aspects of a VN. That's not to say it doesn't have good points... the common route is pretty funny, if you are a cat lover, and I

Umineko Mid-Point Impressions (SPOILER FREE)

Umineko is a beast of a work that I've been putting off for many years now, probably around a decade. I first learned about it after watching the Higurashi anime back in 2010. At first I stayed away because I wasn't a fan of Ryukishi07's sausage-finger art. However these days it seems that most common ports of Umineko utilize updated art. But, that still left one other huge factor for why I was so intimidated by Umineko for so long. The estimated reading time of both the Question and Answer

Crusoe Had it Easy! VN Review!

The game is short with only a handful of decisions, but has lots of cheats and endings. Half of the endings involve forcing yourself onto the girl, while in the other half nothing happens. There are also romantic endings available. There is no music, only atmospheric background tracks. The writing is quirky, but relies too much on pop culture references. For example, after a wardrobe malfunction, you get a Janet Jackson reference. The jokes can be pretty lame. You can customize the experience to

Synopsis:  An omnibus story set around private school that attracts death incidents featuring three different male protagonists - student Fuuta, recently appointed teacher Romio and young actor Kai.

Shinimasu TL notes: Enhanced Edition #1

I wrote earlier about how I thought when translating a few lines in Shinimasu. This series is going to be in that vein, with an eye to explaining translation decisions and highlighting unusual takes. I’m going to try to make it interesting for people not knowing Japanese, but to save effort I’m not going to be providing literal translation equivalents to lines. Why am I doing this? Because my brain is a fuck and producing blog posts is an interesting motivation for doing a second pass on my tra
