VN of the Month June 2021 - Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger

I'd rather nominate an absolutely incomplete title Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger than choose from several moege-like games.   1. Toshishita Kanojo 年下彼女  [210625] Azarashi Soft 1 "When I grow up, I'm going to marry you, Onii-chan!"

VN of the Month March 2021 - Waga Himegimi ni Eikan o

Realive リアライブ [Purple Software]

I was never fan of Purple Software yet as of now I claim Realive to be VN of the Year 2019.

VN of the Year 2020 - Silverio Ragnarok

Somehow both number of masterpieces (14) and number of openings I am able to collect in Visual Novel Openings 2020 decreases yet again. Silverio Ragnarok symbolizes the whole trilogy for me, so I consider it to be the winner in 2020 , but I admit It can change after I review Hakuchuumu no Aojashin . Also plan to do the same with Hoshizora Tetsudou to Shiro no Tabi just because I did not find an English review. Then it will be Tsui no Sora Remake 's turn, next undecided, probably something from 2

Tsui no Sora Remake is more than just a remake and is VN of the Month. Other worthy competitors include Akatsuki Yureru Koi Akari and Hoshizora Tetsudou to Shiro no Tabi . Kara no Shoujo - The Last Episode is also supposed to be good for those who care about depressing games.   1. Akatsuki Yureru Koi Akari 紅月ゆれる恋あかり [201225] CRYSTALiA 1 2 3 Jindou-- it's a near-future sport where you fight with real swords that's really hot in Japan in the 2040s.

VN of the Month October 2020 - Einstein Yori Ai o Komete

VN of the Month August 2020 - Seishun Fragile

VN of the Year July 2020 - Root Film

VN of the Month April 2020 - Silverio Ragnarok
