    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

VN of the Month December 2015 - Kikan Bakumatsu Ibun Last Cavalier

Kikan Bakumatsu Ibun Last Cavalier is the only masterpiece in December. Clephas seems to be of the same opinion, at least it's the only praising review within that month. Micchi is anxious about QUINTUPLE☆SPLASH , Amakano -Second Season- , Tenmondokei no Aria and some loliconge.   1. Chou Kagaku Dasshutsu: Gear Detective 超科学脱出:ギア・ディテクティブ [151202] Intense The story follows Detective Kyosuke Ayana, who has the ability named chronokinesis whic

The Maid of Sortilège Review

Since we have both of Jeanne at the Clock Tower released alongside Kirikoi, I decided to combined both element from both work for this week VNTS Review title. For the info, Jeanne here is based on the story of Joan of Arc (Loosely at that) and that one of her alias is 'The Maid of Orleans', so obviously I changed 'Orleans' into 'Sortilège' in which the latter is the fictional country in Kirikoi. As for this week, well I can say that it's quite exciting seeing that we have a number of the release

VN of the Month November 2015 - Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori

Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori is VN of the Month for me. Clephas apparently (as it's the only one directly proclaimed VN of the Month material) chose Koko kara Natsu no Innocence! which is another masterpiece. Micchi interests cover a lot of remaining titles including Yomesagashi ga Hakadorisugite Yabai , Naderebo , Koi Suru Kimochi no Kasanekata and nukige Tincle ★ Twinkle Festival while Zen also appreciates Haru Uso -Passing Memories-   1. To Love-Ru Trouble Darkness: T

VN of the Month October 2015 - Sakura no Uta -Sakura no Mori no Ue o Mau-

Two-digit number of games for a change! Sakura no Uta -Sakura no Mori no Ue o Mau- is VN of the Month. Kyuuketsuki no Libra is another worthy masterpiece. Clephas also evaluates Primal x Hearts 2 high within its genre. Micchi basically likes everything else - Ama no Sora Retrospect , Cocoro Rista , Koi x Shin Ai Kanojo   1. Tokyo Ghoul: Jail 東京喰種 JAIL [151001] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. The Jail incident - once, the ghoul Jail committed the

VN of the Month September 2015 - Seikishi Melty ☆ Lovers

Yet again a month with just four classical visual novel releases and zero masterpieces. Seikishi Melty ☆ Lovers wins just because it's of higher quality compared to rivals. Clephas saw no winner here. Micchi does not mind playing moege Ren’ai Phase and nukige Boku to Koi Suru Ponkotsu Akuma.   1. IS2 Love and Purge IS<インフィニット・ストラトス>2 ラブ アンド パージ [150903] MAGES. GAME Set several days after the "World Purge" chapter, Infinite Stratos 2 has players developing relationships

VN of the Month August 2015 - Fault Milestone 2 Jou (Side: Above)

In August with the industry slump there's zero attempt to compete with the doujins, sadly . So the choice is between four gameplay titles, one incomplete sequel and three simple romance games leaning towards moege. Like... seriously? With this kind of selection I'd go for incomplete Fault Milestone 2 Jou (Side: Above). Clephas chose gameplay hybrid Tou no Shita no Exercitus . Micchi goes for Tenkiame and Nekopara Vol.0 fandisc, obviously.   1. Fault Milestone 2 Jou (Side: Above

Clock Tower at the Beach Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I combined 'Clock Tower' from Jeanne at the Clock Tower that will be released later along with this week nukige release (Big Dick at the Beach), so we have 'Clock Tower at the Beach' as this week VNTS Review title (By the way I also find out that there's a real clock tower in the beach in which it's place of interest at Monteral). As for this week, well if not for Nekonyan's updates at yesterday it would be a dry week seeing that we only hav

VN of the Month July 2015 - Sorcery Jokers

There are only four classical visual novels to choose from, but among them there are three masterpieces - Sorcery Jokers , Sakura Nikagetsu and Fairytale Requiem. Clephas nominated the first two. Micchi emphasizes only the last one , plus a fandisc.   1. Hana Hime * Absolute! ハナヒメ*アブソリュート! [150703] Mirai 1 In 2025, the social game Crown Hearts about the battle between the princes' country ‘Stella Crown’ and the princesses’ country ‘Floris Hearts

VN of the Month June 2015 - Love Rec.

Just 6 normal releases... I checked back and it looks like it's the driest June since 1992 for visual novels. Love Rec. is basically the winner by default due to incomplete/gameplay/nukige/trap nature of the remaining games. Clephas chose it and gave extended reasoning for particular releases. Micchi also does not mind incomplete Angel Beats! -1st beat- and a fandisc.   1. Maboroshi no Dystopia 幻のディストピア [150603] Tigre Soft 1 

VN of the Month May 2015 - Ayakashi Contract

Ayakashi Contract is VN of the Month with Sumire being another masterpiece. Clephas came to this conclusion after exploring all the worthy candidates, and nothing else really strikes the eye. Micchi also feels for lighter titles like PURE×CONNECT and Chuunibyou na Kanojo no Love Equation   1. Hyakugojuunenme no Mahoutsukai 百五十年目の魔法使い [150502] Pink Chuchu 1  The 150 year old northern capital of Lilac City is home to over 1.9 million people.

Castle in the Rain Review

I'm sorry for my very belated VNTS Review for this week, and as for the title I'll tell it at PS later. For this week, well I can say that this week is quite plain in regard of the releases, although on the other hand though we have interesting new VN announced along with some updates from fan translation. Overall this week is still quite an average one even though it's not too bad, and let's see what I can write in regard of this. JAST did release Closed Game in which it did mark their 5th

VN of the Month April 2015 - Chrono Clock

There are very few normal titles this month, but enough of gameplay ones. Two sequels weren't good enough for a masterpiece, so Chrono Clock becomes VN of the Month by default. Clephas was of the similar opinion. Micchi and Zen cheer up for gameplay titles like Evenicle and Kami no Rhapsody, but also comedy Puramai Wars and Eiyuutan fandisc.   1. XBlaze Lost:Memories [150409] Arc System Works 1 2 3  Magister's City Ishana— The pr

VN of the Month March 2015 - Hana no No ni Saku Utakata no

Clephas chose Hana no No ni Saku Utakata no as VN of the Month and I comply with that as I have zero interest in playing or exploring any of this month's charage. With this kind of overdose lack of darker serious sophisticated titles is seen vividly as there used to be some kind of fragile balance before. Micchi applauds the simple joys of Hanasaki Work Spring , Panical Confusion and Yuki Koi Melt while Zen is curious about Anekouji Naoko to Gin'iro no Shinigami from Minato Carnival and Bishoujo

Madoi Shiroki no Kamikakushi

This is the latest kemomomi VN from Lump of Sugar, whose best VNs all have kemomimi girls, lol.  In this one, the protagonist Takuto and his little sister Shiina are transported to the world of the gods, where human perceptions of the world, mythology and legends come to life.  As a game, this story feels a lot like a 'gentle and slow nakige'.   To be blunt, the first thing I think most people will note upon getting past the prologue of this game is... that Roka is the most moe-moe heroine

VN of the Month February 2015 - Silverio Vendetta

Silverio Vendetta is a natural choice for VN of the Month. But I also consider all of Boku no Hitori Sensou , Rakuen no Shugosha , Sanoba Witch and Soreyori no Prologue masterpieces. Clephas has the same favorite with Sanoba Witch given special mention. Micchi in addition to Soreyori no Prologue looks forward to Kujiragami no Tearstilla and Ama Koi Syrups, and even Zer has his picks of Akuma Musume no Kanban Ryouri and Sakura Synchronicity .   1. Zombie no Afureta Sekai de Ore

VN of the Month January 2015 - Tokeijikake no Ley Line -Asagiri ni Chiru Hana-

Tokeijikake no Ley Line -Asagiri ni Chiru Hana- is VN of the Month. Kurogane Kaikitan -Senya Ichiya- is another curious species. Clephas did not choose anything due to nature of trilogy and absence of PC release for the mentioned games. Micchi emphasizes Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia and Haru Kiss   1. Kimihane: Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi Suru Ikkagetsu きみはね 彼女と彼女の恋する1ヶ月 [150123] BaseSon Light 1 2 Hina, Rin and Fumi are new roommates at Seiba Girls’ Sc

Booby Quest 3 Review

Since Mangagamer did released Funbag Fantasy 3if back at 6th, I decided to reuse the title 'Booby Quest' for the third time (The first time was at 2016 and the second time was at 2019) and so we have 'Booby Quest 3' as this week VNTS Review title. For the reminder, it's because I parodied Dragon Quest in which I changed 'Dragon' into 'Booby' and for the reminder Funbag Fantasy here is the parody of Final Fantasy (The Japanese name of Funbag Fantasy is Kyonyuu Fantasy, and kyonyuu here is more or

VN of the Year 2014

Year 2014 has overall less normal releases and masterpieces that 2013, but there is still one kamige Nanairo Reincarnation and one hilarious mindscrew Bradyon Veda to represent it strongly. I tried to include everything notable in the list, even Aokana, but still only ended at 27 masterpieces. Somehow even number of openings degraded to under 150 from usual close to 200. Visual Novel Openings 2014 .  My list of masterpieces in 2014: 12 no Tsuki no Eve

VN of the Month December 2014 - Teito Hiten Daisakusen

Teito Hiten Daisakusen is VN of the Month. Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai and Chaos;Child are also masterpieces, but with the latter I'd recommend anime over the game. Clephas chose Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai at the time, but Liar-Soft game was unavailable at the time.   1. Kadenz Fermata//Akkord:Fortissimo [141211] La'cryma 1  It is not the end (fermata) to this story of battles. In order to bring upon “justice”, a spe

Random VN: Ojousama no Hanbun wa Ren'ai de Dekiteimasu

This game is a peculiar one.  This is the third time I've played the game, and the second time I've posted on it.  If you want to see my original review, please look here:    I'm going to focus here on coloring in some of the details of why I like this game and think it is underrated amongst Western readers of untranslated VNs.  First, the factors that lead to it being underrated. 1) The protagonist takes on a man-whore role through large swathes of the game and isn't a pure-hear

VN of the Month November 2014 - Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou.

Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou. is VN of the Month. Clephas had to agree on Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm , but I hate sports even more and sampling anime based on the game only worsened aggravated bias. Micchi likes both and also Kimi no Tonari de Koi Shiteru , Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria and a fandisc.   1. Hanayamata: Yosakoi Live! ハナヤマタ よさこいLIVE! [141113] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. Naru Sekiya is an ordinary 14-year-old middle sch

Bunny Loveriche Review

Welcome to my VNTS Review for this week, and here's my first attempt to write VNTS Review earlier even though it's still quite late. As for this week VNTS Review title since we have one of Sugar * Style heroine share the same name of KKPC pink Precure (Ichika) along with Nekonyan did announce the exact release date of Kirikoi, I'd make the title as 'Bunny Loveriche' with the 'Loveriche' part is from Kirikoi full title (Kin'iro Loveriche) and the 'Bunny' part here is from KKPC Ichika's 2nd image

VN of the Month October 2014 - Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete

There aren't masterpieces in October. If I had to choose one, I'd say Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete . Clephas decided to skip nomination entirely. Micchi adds to the already mentioned title Hanokiwa Logic and Unmei Senjou no φ .   1. Mayoi Hitsuji no Kajuen マヨイヒツジの果樹園 [141007] Namaage 1 2 A small, garden-like Academy stands alone on a secluded island.
