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.

A-hem, so this is the f
Welcome to this week VNTS Review. As for this week title, since we have JAST finally announced Muramasa exact release date along with Distant Memorajo release in which the latter is the sequel of Amrilato (It's GL VN with learning Esperanto as the premise for the reminder), I decided to use the Esperanto direct translation of Muramasa English title (Full Metal Daemon Muramasa) so we have 'Plena Metala Demono Muramasa' as this week VNTS Review title and obviously this is not Esperanto translated
Foreword: Now when I've run out of RPGs till September 2nd and I don't feel eternally burdened by writing a review, I can finally get to it. Battle and guns is what brought this game into my sphere of interest. But is it really a chunige?

Year 2016 is a comeback with some very strong titles and months after somewhat weaker 2015. It even broke out of the 20 masterpiece curse. Clephas hesitated between three titles, and stopped at Tokyo Necro , but for me it was an evident winner. Visual Novel Openings 2015 .
My list of masterpieces in 2016:
Dungeons & Daimeiwaku -Great Edges in the Abyss-
Since we have Snow big progress along with Study Steady release, I'd just change 'Study' with 'Snow' so we have Snow Steady as this week VNTS Review, which to say would fitting Australian seeing that currently they're in winter (Interestingly we have a novel with the title 'Steady as the Snow Fall'). As for this week VNTS Review, we have White Album 2 translator reveal their current situation of the project along with Frontwing finally reveal the exact release date for Sharin and Fakku announced
This month comes down to competition between Ou no Mimi ni wa Todokanai! , Akiyume Kukuru and Ryuukishi Bloody † Saga . I'm egoistic when making a choice, so it's the first one. Clephas opted out for the last one as it may have bigger impact for the community that tends to ignore AXL titles that are usually a full head taller than closest rivals within the same month. Micchi also lays hopes on Hatsukoi Sankaime and Shinsou Noise ~Jushin Tantei no Jikenbo~
1. LoveKami -
Clephas was clear about Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana being the winner , and none of the rivals appeal to me in the slightest, so I concur here. Micchi has a wider selection including Suki to Suki to de Sankaku Ren’ai and Natsuiro Koi Uta

Sora no Tsukurikata -Under the Same Sky, Over the Rainbow- and Signalist Stars!! are the candidates. Clephas nominates the first one. Micchi also underlines Deep Love Diary -Koibito Nikki- .

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I'll tell it at PS later. As for this week, well Sekai did have AX Lite announcements and Nekonyan have their usual monthly updates along with two VNs releases, so we van see that this week is quite an active one even though Sekai's announcements are not as big as I expected. Oh well, and let's see what I can write for this week.
Cherry Kiss Games decided to release another nukige at 16th later, and the nukige localized name is Horny Ho
Let's first get this out there... I did not play the original game. The reasons? Well, mostly because it was supposedly horribly buggy and I have no patience for bugs and glitches. The other part was that it didn't sound that interesting to me. It sounded like an occult take on SAO. However, I decided when this came out that I would buy it and later play it. Why? Because Touyama Mai is a much more interesting protagonist than Shina or Arata.
The game begins with Mai being driven to m
Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki is the winner this month, but Dungeons & Daimeiwaku -Great Edges in the Abyss- can also fascinate. Clephas did not see worthy candidates this month. Micchi is captivated by Tayutama 2 and D.C. fandisc.

I'm going to be blunt, I'm not fond of what was done with the previous game, and I felt like this one was a repeat of the same mistakes. That's not to say there aren't a lot of good points to this game and its predecessor. Kinugasa Shougo is an excellent writer (as VN writers go) with a great skill in characterization and scenario design. However, just like the first game, this one cuts off without completing the story.I'm not nearly as angry this time,
All of Amatsutsumi , Floral Flowlove and Senren ＊ Banka make a fine choice this month. I choose the first one and Clephas made the second one winner. Micchi actually agrees with all three titles, and Zen adds Aristear Remain to his sphere of interest.

Two years after the horrifying incident involving the serial killer Blindman from urban myths in the village of C in S Prefecture, p
Clephas did not choose anything out of June, but I have to, so it's Lamunation! since it's slightly better than everything else.. Micchi has a better selection - Otome*Domain , KARAKARA and a fandisc.

Since we have Taisho Alice Epilogue released and that the plot is resemble Oretsuba to a degree (According to this review of Oretsuba, and beware of the spoiler from Oretsuba and Taisho Alice if you want to read one of it (Or perhaps both)), I decided to parodied Oretsuba English title 'We Without Wings' by changing 'We' into 'Alice' so we have 'Alice Without Wings' as this week VNTS Review. Coincidentally Oetsuba has non-heroine character with the name Alice, although she's just side character
Sakura no Mori † Dreamers and Soshite Hatsukoi ga Imouto ni Naru are really the only notable titles this month. Clephas hesitated between the two and chose the latter, and I'll probably do the same just because of the genres involved. Micchi wanted to try Natsuiro Kokoro Log and two delayed titles.

I have difficult history with Island and its anime, but it was still a memorable event in VN history worth discussing, so I give it its due. Clephas chose Wagamama High Spec which I placed to February for formal reasons as it was a partial release and not demo back then. Micchi in addition obviously chooses D.S. -Dal Segno- , Natsu Uso -Ahead of the reminiscence- , Wizards Complex and a nukige.

Akeiro Kaikitan is VN of the month with Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya o Mezasu and Toki o Tsumugu Yakusoku as other masterpieces. Clephas thought alike. Micchi in naturally chooses Maitetsu and tome ga Irodoru Koi no Essence in addition

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I'll tell it at PS later. As for this week, we didn't have much updates although in exchange we have new VNs announcement along with some releases so overall I can say that this week is still interesting to a degree thanks to the announcements even though it's not as active as last week. Let's see what I can write in regard of this week VNTS Review.
Sekai did released Slobbish Dragon Princess FD yesterday, and what I can say is that at
World Election , Tsumi no Hikari Rendezvous and Wagamama High Spec are all masterpieces with first one being more to my taste, but Clephas opted out for the second one. Micchi chooses Mamiya-kunchi no Itsutsugo Jijou , Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart and Nekopara nukige.

I saw a ghost in the living room.
But as I was already used to the phenomenon, I did not let it interfere with the preparation of my evening meal.
Year 2014 had significantly less releases and only occasionally pleased with masterpieces. Still, counted twenty masterpieces. Can't choose Silverio Vendetta since it's a part of trilogy, so Kikan Bakumatsu Ibun Last Cavalier remains the best candidate for VN of the Year. Visual Novel Openings 2015 .
My list of masterpieces in 2015:
