VN of the Month September 2010 - Fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier

VN of the Month September 2010 - Fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier

Fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier in its EXA version is the only masterpiece of the month. Michi thinks alike while also highlighting one moege and some fandiscs.   1. Trick x Logic Season 2 [100916] Chunsoft 1   Once again, all of these stories are loosely linked by the story of prosecutor Yoshikawa trying to solve his own murder by reading underworldly Akasha (crime records) and young camera-woman Tsukasa who keeps getting involved with murder case

VN of the Month August 2010 - Indigo

VN of the Month August 2010 - Indigo

Fewer normal titles see the light due to Comiket rivalry this month. As a result, I can only call a doujin game Indigo masterpiece and winner by default. Probably I should review it one day for popularization purposes. Micchi has to choose among the published works, so lays hopes on Suzukaze no Melt.   1. Framing Summer フレーミングサマー [100813] Wavestar Kou joins the camera circle since he wants to take pictures of shooting stars.

VN of the Month July 2010 - Second Novel ~ Kanojo no Natsu, 15fun no Kioku~

VN of the Month July 2010 - Second Novel ~ Kanojo no Natsu, 15fun no Kioku~

Wow, I'm going to call as many as three games masterpieces this month - Tasogare no Sinsemilla , Para-Sol and Second Novel ~ Kanojo no Natsu, 15fun no Kioku~ . And the last one is something special, so it wins. It's definitely in my review queue. Micchi awaits cuteness from Sugar+Spice2 and fandiscs.   1. Executor Script エグゼクタースクリプト [100702] Triangle In a world where some people possess magic-like special abilities, Yamahito is a s

VN of the Month June 2010 - Deardrops

VN of the Month June 2010 - Deardrops

Deardrops and Comsome! ~Combination Somebody~ make the only masterpieces for me in June. And first one is more polished. Micchi for once agrees with me although anticipating even more from Angel Ring.   1. Deardrops [100618] Overdrive 1 2 3 4 5 6 Shouichi was known as one of the ‘nobles’ of the violin world.

VN of the Month May 2010 - Evolimit

VN of the Month May 2010 - Evolimit

Evolimit is the only real masterpiece here. I'll review it eventually, but with Dailymotion limit of two hours per day it would take over a month of real time, so it's the only thing I review in 2010. Micchi falls for nekomimi You∞Gaku just because of cuteness.   1. Nadeshiko Ranbu 撫子乱舞 [100521] White Cyc Focuses on the Yamato Nadeshiko archetype – the ideal Japanese woman, Takahiro resides in Misaki-shi where there is a competitio

VN of the month April 2010 - Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~

Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~ finally can be considered a masterpiece as story actually moves somewhere this time. Micchi sees some merit in Iro ni Ide ni keri Waga Koi wa . 1. Eien no Ikusa Hime 永焔の戦姫 [100413] Eushully Eien no Ikusa Hime contains the novelized versions of Ikusa Megami Zero, Genrin no Kishougun and Genrin no Kishougun 2 for those who want to jump into Verita without missing the previous story developments.

VN of the Month March 2010 - Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~

VN of the Month March 2010 - Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~

Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~ is VN of the Month, moreover, a 10/10. I'm going to call White Album 2 ~Introductory Chapter~ another masterpiece since it was at least memorable compared to Closing Chapter. Micchi is mostly interested in Koiiro Soramoyou   1. Cross Days [100319] 0verflow 1 2   Yuuki first met Kotonoha at the school library in the beginning of second semester, but there was no progress with their relationship.

VN of the Month February 2010 - Tsubasa o Kudasai

Kashimashi Communication and Tsubasa o Kudasai are masterpieces with the latter having priority due to original concept. Micchi is fascinated by cuteness of Magicarat☆Radiant and throws in a bunch of nukige since there's not so much to discuss this month. 1. Misshitsu no Sacrifice 密室のサクリファイス [100214] Intense 1   Deep underground lies an immense living facility: Foundation.

VN of the Month January 2010 - Rune Lord

A nice busy month. I'd only call Rune Lord and Harukaze dori ni, Tomarigi o. 2nd Story ~Tsuki no Tobira to Umi no Kakera~ masterpieces with traditionally chunige having the upper hand over charage. As for review, won't be any this month. Will only review couple games per year, probably with video playthroughs properly backed up, will see when first appealing for review game shows up. As usual, Micchi is mostly interested in fandiscs.   1. Last Window: Mayonaka no Yakusok

VN of the Year 2009 and POLL about future

VN of the Year 2009 and POLL about future

Year 2009 was cool in my evaluation due to two 10/10 masterpieces. It starts to get weird, but the overall number of masterpieces for me is exactly 20 yet again this year. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2009 with songs. My list of masterpieces in 2009: Abyss -Homicide Club- Amber Quartz Bengarachou Hakubutsushi Boku no Te no Naka no Rakuen Coμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku - Devils Devel Concept Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet.

VN of the Month December 2009 - Fake Azure Arcology

Another sucky month. I recordered couple routes of Fake Azure Arcology by the time my second youtube channel got hammered, so let's call Fake Azure Arcology VN of the month since too many releases this month are gameplay ones. Yes, I know I promised to review Atori no Sora to Shinchuu no Tsuki , but for the same reason don't want to pull it out without video. It was a heavy and not interesting game, anyway. Micchi is fascinated about fandiscs, as usual. And there won't be usual end of the year p

VN of the Month November 2009 - Hikari no Valusia ~What a Beautiful Hopes~

VN of the Month November 2009 - Hikari no Valusia ~What a Beautiful Hopes~

Hikari no Valusia ~What a Beautiful Hopes~ is VN of the Month, but for me it's not a masterpiece. I happened to play Sorafune and Shiden ~Enkan no Kizuna~ in the past, so will take Atori no Sora to Shinchuu no Tsuki for review. Micchi is understandably fascinated by Baldr Sky Dive2, but also lays hopes on Imouto Smile, Shiden and Suzunone Seven fandisc.   1. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift ブレイブルー コンティニュアム シフト, [091120] Arc System Works 1 2 3 4  The ga

Soukou Akki Muramasa 装甲悪鬼村正 [Nitroplus]

Soukou Akki Muramasa 装甲悪鬼村正 [Nitroplus]

Foreword: I somehow did not play this Nitroplus game earlier, but its universally high scores are intriguing.  Synopsis: In the first half of 20th century, Rokuhara Shogunate rules Japan with an iron fist of robotic suits of armor called Tsurugi, while the West wants to turn Japan into another military base. A policeman called Kageaki Minato arrives into a city of Kamakura to solve various different cases involving Tsurugi users (or Mushas), and when all other means are proven us

VN of the Month October 2009 - Soukou Akki Muramasa

Soukou Akki Muramasa is VN of the month. Among other masterpieces is Steins;Gate and Coμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku. Of course I'm playing the Nitroplus one. Micchi considers this month to be the best in the year for bringing such sugary titles as Mashiroiro Symphony and My Girlfriend is the President. 1. Sora o Tobu, 7tsu Me no Mahou. 空を飛ぶ、7つ目の魔法。 [091002] La'cryma Soramitsu's After Story.

Sorairo そらいろ [NekoNeko Soft]

Sorairo そらいろ [NekoNeko Soft]

Foreword: Cover is worryingly fanservice-ish , but with Micchi and Accany praise it should not be a problem, right? Synopsis: You start off as Kenji, a pretty ordinary kid (yes you start off as a kid) who’s visiting his aunt during the holidays with his father. There, he meets his cousin Ai, a quiet girl who is just one year younger than him. They were left together in the house so they went out to the nearby sea to play. But because Ai was so quiet, Kenji decided to play

Natsu no Ame 夏ノ雨 [CUBE]

Natsu no Ame 夏ノ雨 [CUBE]

Foreword: It's a very curious game that I played in the past and then lost. Happy to find and finish it now. Synopsis: The plot of Natsu no Ame revolves around Sousuke, a soccer loving idiot who spends his days practicing with his two friends, Takeda and Midori for the day when he is allowed to return to the soccer club he was forced to resign from. The story begins with Sousuke recalling a memory from his past where he pondered what qualifies as a first love, thinking abo

VN of the Month September 2009 - Natsu no Ame

I feel that I can safely call Natsu no Ame VN of the Month. Sorairo I'm also taking up for review, because I don't want to choose between the two. Lastly, there's Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. that I remember as a nice short atmospheric game. Micchi was of pretty much the same opinion except for Natsu no Ame since it was difficult to except an overwhelming masterpiece from a new brand.   1. Kokuhaku こくはく [090914] Sound Wing 1

Abyss -Homicide Club- 殺人クラブ [Festival]

Abyss -Homicide Club- 殺人クラブ [Festival]

Foreword: Abyss is one of the more known doujin games and even has a fuwanovel recommendation page. But I could find only one English review, so it needs to be fixed asap. Synopsis: Sasayama Akira was born into a family of assassins and trained as a child to become one of them. However, due to psychological issues, his father decided to send Akira to a relative's house, to live a normal life. Several years later, Akira gets asked by the student council president to investi

VN of the Month August 2009 - Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!

Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! is VN of the Month. Guess I'll need to review and evaluate doujin Abyss -Homicide Club- . As many as two doujin games during this August Comiket managed to crawl into the list. Micchi does not really see anything worthwhile, but he starts to add some synopsis starting from this month.   1. Abyss -Homicide Club- ABYSS -殺人クラブ- [090815] Festival 1  Sasayama Akira was born into a family of assassins and trained a

Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo, きっと、澄みわたる朝色よりも、[Propeller]

Foreword: Shumon Yuu work from Propeller already sounds intriguing. Synopsis: We were always together. Irreplaceable friends. There was a strong tie between us even we got separated. Several years later, we have a chance to meet again at school. There are only four classmates, but that's enough. Only us. However... "Stop acting like before." Our relationship gets cold and distant. It's only me who believed in our eternal friendship. What made us like this...? "Ayanashisai Fe

Bengarachou Hakubutsushi 紅殻町博物誌 [raiL-soft]

Foreword: Another Mareni work that's worth investigating. Synopsis: Tomohisa has some memory of his childhood. When he was a kid, he was often playing at some place near his house. But his parents don't remember it. Tomohisa doesn't remember it clearly, either. One day, he finds a notebook. It is about history and things happened at a small town. It's just eccentric, so no one pays attention to it. But he knows who wrote it. It's his uncle, who has been missing for years. The notebo

Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! りんかねーしょん☆新撰組っ! [Libre]

Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! りんかねーしょん☆新撰組っ! [Libre]

Foreword: Game looks like a parody chunige with dimension shifts, so I'd like to know the story. Synopsis: The story takes place in the near future, when monsters frequently appear in the town. Hiromi has just moved to another school because his previous school was closed. The monsters used to be dangerous creatures before, but they are now like crows or stray dogs thanks to high-quality monster exterminators. But one day, Hiromi is suddenly attacked by a monster when he meets Kiku,

Foreword: A nice otaku game always catches my attention. Synopsis: Kenjiro is lazy and has no job. One day, his mother calls him and tells that she asked his aunt to hire him at her school. However, Kenjiro is a hardcore otaku - he has no social skills to speak of, can't get along with people, and has never dated a girl... When he arrives at the school, he is shocked to find out it's an all-girls' school, and has no idea what he should do! Luckily he meets up with Nanase,

VN of the Month June 2009 - Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama

I'll call Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama VN of the month, but can't say if it is a masterpiece yet. Same refers to Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! which I'm reviewing to find out its merit. Micchi doesn't see anything worthwhile this month, but Zen is enthralled by yanderege Oni Uta 1. Juusei to Diamond 銃声とダイヤモンド [090618] SCEI Onizuka Youichi - the negotiator from New York - has contracted with the Japanese police and is working for Zero Department, which ha
