VN of the Month February 2024

Surprisingly adequate number of titles in February, so I could safely cut couple titles that would fit otherwise (notably, Alice49 EP.0 "Diamond to Shukurimu" and 5fungo ni Igai na Ketsumatsu Monochrome no Toshokan).   1. Haison Sansaku-Kai Katsudou Kiroku 廃村散策会活動記録 [240203] mokosoft  He wanders into the village and comes face to face with the

VN of the Month May 2023

Had serious doubts about including Vtuber games, but let's do it for volume.

VN of the Month November 2022

Don't think it's right to nominate games shortly after release. Let's wait for reviews or even write them ourselves.   1. Akuma to Yoru to Isekai to 悪魔と夜と異世界と [221125] WendyBell Main character encounters a devil girl Alice and agrees to bind a contract with her about life-long absolute obedience and soul transfer to Alice after death.

VN of the Month September 2022 - BLACK SHEEP TOWN

For the time being, I prefer stories without romance at all, and BLACK SHEEP TOWN is a safe bet for me, as for others, time will show   1. BLACK SHEEP TOWN [220915] BA-KU  The setting of this work is "District Y".

VN of the Month February 2022 - RE:D Cherish

The good news that there is still a release that qualifies to run for the game of the month - RE:D Cherish .
