Foreword: I'm quite excited to see the first professional Akabei Soft2 work after their doujin past as Akabei Soft. I'm mostly interested in the initial release of the game, so review will be based on that. I'll also compare initial release with the remake Enkan no Kizuna.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v85



Synopsis: Touma busily lives everyday with Kasumi and Nami. One day, they receive an offer. That is to exorcize a monster. And they go hunting at night as usual. But, the monster is too tough to beat, and Touma and Kasumi get injured. Nami tries to beat it up by herself to protect Touma and Kasumi, but she is defeated...

Game type: Monster fighting action story

Character Design rating: 7/10

Protagonist rating: 5/10

Story rating: 5/10

Game quality: 7/10

Overall rating: 6/10

The evaluation actually changed several times during playthrough. At first it was so-so with the ordinary SOL scenes after the prologue. Then by the end of Kasumi route there's a huge twist that fascinated me enough to consider it a masterpiece for a short time. But in the end I was not persuaded by heroes' motivation and the whole resolution. The absolute passiveness of protagonist Touma also gave a huge dent to the evaluation.


The synopsis retells the quite long prologue of the game, so it's pretty much impossible to conceal the fact that Nami is not just defeated by the monster. She is also raped, delivered multiple piercing and tear wounds and then eaten alive limb by limb. It's the most emotional scene of the game that determines the whole flow of the game, so this fact must be stated absolutely clearly to go on. That's why I really appreciate it that that Nami is NOT a heroine for capture in this game unlike PS2 release. But I'll get to releases comparison later.


The composition of the game is pretty simple. There are two main parts - prologue till Nami death and the main part where Kasumi has to rely on Touma's help. There are SOL moments in both of the parts. Ai the coffee shop assistant almost entirely governs the SOL scenes and gags. But what surprises me the most is that there is no conflict line in the game. The killer of Nami dies just a few minutes later, so there is no direct antagonist. During the main part we meet a mysterious masked person several times, but short fights never lead to anything serious. We meet shrine maiden sisters who also exterminate lesser demons, but that's it. The greater is the shock of main twist of the game.


As for heroines routes, Kasumi one is definitely the best. Shrine maiden routes are kind of paired with a lot of scenes being the same. They are fighting heroines, which is a great plus, but these routes aren't as fun as Kasumi. Ai is the only heroine that kind of does not fight. Her route just develops the SOL and gag concepts presented in the common route.


Ok, time to mention the "Enkan no Kizuna" edition. It's so much worse than initial edition. Every change done in it is absolutely horrible:

1) Nami route is introduced. Even if some plot twist allows us to etch a dead heroine, such step is absolutely bad for the structure. From a game with a concept it becomes a cliche game where every heroine must be etched no matter what. It kills the soul of the game.

2) All the extreme or sexual scenes outside the H events are concealed. Well, it's again a horrible step. Those scenes actually contribute a lot to the charm of the game. Sometimes it just becomes stupid. Like when Touma wakes up to see naked Machiru on his bed who urges him not to rise voice or Kasumi might get it all wrong. It makes perfect sense with Machiru naked breast, but it looks and sounds just stupid when Machiru wears a fully closed sleeping gown in Enkan no Kizuna. There are a lot of such scenes. But the most horrible part is that the most emotional core scene of the Nami rape and dissection gets pretty much ruined by the black screen that we see in Enkan no Kizuna.

3) Remake adds a ton of filler choices and stupid meaningless battles with some lower beasts. From a normal story it becomes a tormenting selection of the same 10 choices each game when we need to consequently choose each one and fight 3-4 monsters. I actually remembered that I played remake version like 10 years ago without a walkthrough and those stupid choices and battles absolutely confused me to the point of dropping the game. There are a lot of comments about the game from players who dropped it without seeing the end of any route. It's just so bad.

4) Enkan of Kizuna does not include the Another story extra episode. That episode was voiceless in original version and gave an alternative look at the heroines including Nami. It was done mostly to show an extra H event with each of the heroines, but it's still a little nice thing to have. Those nice things contribute to the individual image of the game.


In conclusion, Tamayura is a nice game with a great twist and even midfuck elements. It does not live up to the masterpiece status, but it could easily be one if ending was not failed. But Enkan no Kizuna managed to absolutely devaluate the game to the point that it only brings negative emotions. All the poor votes of the game are probably based on Enkan no Kizuna version. This great action story actually only reestablishes my belief in Akabei Soft brand. I wish I could find the copies of its first doujin plotge - Azazel and Yoru no Kakera. Narumi is not Looseboy, but still a pretty talented scenario writer.



Princess Witches is the only masterpiece this month. I'll review first Akabei Soft2 project Tamayura

1. Touhou Kuru Ningyou 2 Alice to Issho -Alice to Eternal- 東方繰人形2 アリスといっしょ -Alice to Eternal- [050504] Coolier 1
You play as an university student. One day you stumbled upon a sleeping girl in the woods. The two of you get acquainted and made a promise to meet again.
There is an English review.


2. Heartbreak ~Koi no Triangle Chuuihou~ は~とぶれいく ~恋のトライアングル注意報~ 
[050520] Patisserie
Main character spends his youth days happily in the company of six friends. He finally gathers courage to confess to one of the girls from this group, but his heart gets broken by the reply. Little by little he is able to recover through talking to other girls. It's a week before school festival now. Protagonist is busy with "Maid Cafe" preparations. Will he pursue his initial love interest or fall for another girl as a result?


3. Ikusabi 戦火-IKUSABI- [050520] Talisman
There is secret demon-hunting organization that dates back to ancient times. Its members - though few in numbers - protect peace of each epoch from the shadows. It's year 1707 now. Peace has come to this land with the establishment of Tokugawa Shogunate. However, suddenly a dangerous shadow monster again threatens the world. His name is Oda Nobunaga.
Alternative history is a popular genre, as we know. Actually, this time demon soul of Oda Nobunaga infects another human. It's an SRPG with reportedly mechanics with multiple flaws. Can't judge it without playing it myself.


4. Zettai Chikyuu Boueiki Mega Laughter 絶対地球防衛機 メガラフター [050520] Liar-soft
Gameplay is based on card battles.
Far from the outer reaches of space come the invading aliens called Reticulians. Dr. Tsukitometa claims that the only weakness of these aliens is humor and begins the construction of the giant superrobot Mega Laughter.
Shinichi, our protagonist, who could be called a humour maniac and who sports the worst short-time memory ever seen in a protagonist, is recruited by Muramatsu Pasta (Commander of the EDF) to pilot Megalaughter.
He is assisted by Nanami, who works in the base,
His humourless childhoodfriend Hikari is drawn into the events as well, and soon Liu, one of the elite pilots from the Zeta star system is forced to join them as well after being beaten...
It's a light absurd bakage. There are no choices, but there's the need to raise favorability of heroines. So it's more of a gameplay-oriented game which is is not in my field of interest.


5. Tantei Jinguuji Saburou Series No.07: Bouen o Sagase! 探偵 神宮寺三郎 Series No.07 亡煙を捜せ! [050525] WorkJam
Kumano gets suspicious about an unmanned office. Reunited with Jinguji and Yoko, they start a small investigation.

When the fragment which fell to Earth is being transported to a laboratory in the USA for an analyze the transport is being attacked by the relic persons, now Takeru has to fight and defend it for a final solution in this incident.
Game is based on anime events. It's reported to be a much bigger failure than even anime version was.


7. Amakoi Tenshi ~Sweet Sweet Angel~ 甘恋天使 すい~とすい~とえんじぇる [050527] DisAbel

There is an English review.


9. Gift [050527] 1 2
Gift is a story that revolves around high school student Amami Haruhiko and his strong connection to Gift's mysterious power.
The town of Narasaki-chou, where Gift's story takes place, has two distinguishing characteristics: a rainbow that seems permanently fixed in the sky no matter the weather, and an ability known as Gift possessed by all its inhabitants. Gift's power can only be evoked by each person once in a lifetime, and is able to grant a single miracle. To be successful, a Gift must reflect the shared feelings of both the giver and the receiver. If the feelings are not mutual, the Gift is distorted and has the ability to wreak havoc on the surrounding area. When this happens, a black streak appears in the rainbow above town until Gift is used correctly.
The story begins as Haruhiko's younger sister, Fukamine Riko, returns home after several years away. Beginning with her appearance, Haruhiko's life starts to change very quickly and feelings of the past begin to surface once more.
There are English reviews.


10. Princess Witches プリンセスうぃっちぃず [050527] Pajamas Soft 1 2
The game stages Masaki Midou, a boy who's been craving for one thing: becoming a hero, the kind who would rescue the world. Apart from that, he's quite your usual guy, not really perverted but still interested in girls.
When he learns of female students being assaulted on the campus precincts, it was no surprise he'd show up and put himself on the front line. What awaits him is a spectacular sight: a giant dragon has appeared! Equally surprising is the girl with magical powers, who has engaged in combat, Klucienne Roussel (Kururu).
In an unexpected turn of events, Masaki confesses to Kururu and they accidently share a kiss during the battle. For some reason, this has the effect of giving him magical powers. The two of them join forces to defeat the monster.
The day after, a transfer student is being admitted in Masaki's classroom..
There are English reviews.


11. Tamayura 魂響 [050527] Akabei Soft2

But, the monster is too tough to beat, and Touma and Kasumi get injured. Nami tries to beat it up by herself to protect Touma and Kasumi, but she is defeated...
First of all, I'm reviewing this game as I'm interested in AcabeiSoft2 origins. Pretty much all the Japanese reviewers agree that it's a kusoge with painfully bland SOL scenes, tormentingly long battle sequences and senseless story divided in two clear parts.

Foreword: I only had to choose this game, because the only other somewhat curious game from April 2005 Gakuen Kaiketsu Kururi! turned out to have a horrible engine for auto-reading with voices getting constantly cut even with the latest patch, at least with win10. I want to ask sincere forgiveness from all those who like vanilla pure love visual novels. Depending on your likes, game can get even couple points more in the overall evaluation. I'm only conveying my sincere impression of this game even though I'm ill suited for that purpose.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v703



Synopsis: Protagonists name is Kaoru, it is a name used for girls normally, he has no idea why his parents decided to name him like that. And just because of that when he was changing schools he gets enrolled to a girls high school by mistake. Unhappy with this turn of events at first, he soon grows to like the new school.

Game type: Pure love story in vanilla girl school setting

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 4/10

Story rating: 4/10

Game quality: 6/10

Overall rating: 5/10

It's insufficient to say that I did not like this game. It was a torture that is painful to remember, actually. There are so many poor elements in it that I don't even know what to start with. I'll try to focus on positive sides in conclusion as well, though. Game quality gets a penalty for poor heroines design, lack of CG and occasional lack of voicing.


The setting is kind of stupid and oh-so-super-convenient. 

1). Parents sent Kaoru's papers to a girl's school. Quite possible, just a simple mistake.

2). Kaoru is the only boy on the entrance ceremony, but he stays there till the end and gives out his voice like everyone else. That's ok, boy's probably confused.

3). He wants to transfer to the nearby normal school, but he is not allowed to by that school. Girl's school does not force him out. Well... that's weird behavior on behalf of girl's school, but maybe they did not want to ruin boy's school year during the already started term. Really stupid, but ok.

4) Kaoru is denied dormitory room in the normal school dormitory, so he pretty much becomes a homeless bum. Hinako asks him to make her a company on her way to girls' dormitory. It's strange that school authorities have no concern for boy's living space in such an extraordinary situation, but overall feels almost natural.

5) Hinako asks girl dormitory caretaker to look for a room for Kaoru to stay for one night. But all rooms are taken, so Hinako asks dormitory caretaker to have Kaoru share a room with her. Wait a minute, that's just super wrong. The fact that caretaker girl so eagerly agrees with the condition that divider should be set at the center of the room is increasingly alarming. In reality half of girls would be against that, but no one seems to ask their opinion at all considering the fact that there are no facilities for men in the dormitory.

6) So Kaoru starts to live at the same room with Hinako. Wait, what the hell? Did not he want to find a normal place the next day? What happened with the allowance to stay for just one night?

7) Pretty much the very first day Kaoru relaxes at the bathroom and encounters naked Hinako going to take a shower. REALLY? Freaking boy is allowed to stay for one night and he just occupies a huge bath all by himself without noticing anyone and locking the door? There's total irresponsibility at all levels in this dormitory.

8 ) Kaoru and Hinako set alarm clock for 8 o'clock, but only Hinako is able to wake up on time. She has to trespass to the other side of the room in order to wake Kaoru up. The decision to allow or not allow Hinako to get to this side of room in the future determines whether we enter Hinako or other girls's routes. We already know that Kaoru is a terribly irresponsible boy, but if he actually allows Hinako to get to his side then it pretty much means that he does not care for alarm since is a person to abuse with waking him up. Ok, we get it, he's an absolute failure as a responsible member of society.

9) Roommates decide to hide the fact they live at the same room, but Hinako admits that she is pretty bad with concealing anything, because she is super-naive, and everything is written right at her face. Of course she constantly blushes, stutters and mumbles whenever Kaoru is mentioned in any context. The story gets revealed in no time, but the whole class only encourages Hinako. It looks weird to me that whatever route we enter, everyone is so supportive with any choice made. There is absolutely no room for conflict in this school, so bring in the cakes.


At school we meet other girls, but for some reason the only lively and sharp-tongue girl who basically moves the whole plot by playing jokes on Hinako - is not available as a heroine. Instead, we're offered absolutely isolated stereotypical random girls as heroines. For some reason, neither of the girls was able to interest me. I ended up choosing yet another super-naive and this time also a loli heroine Maria for the second heroine playthrough just because hoped for more lively CG of this small idol girl and because she is voiced by seiyu Naruse Mia in a pretty funny way. How horrible should heroines' personalities be for me to pick a naive loli girl just based on seiyu? And of course I got burned with this decision, because all the funny events of Maria were reserved for the common route. Should personal route always be so miserable to make poor kid cry for three times? I'm not even mentioning disgusting etching. Since this game is only about the looks and fuwa-fuwa atmosphere, I don't feel guilty for revealing the main drama in Maria route. And it's about Kaoru loosing sight of Maria and starting search only to find her around the corner so they could happily reunite. What the hell...


And I'm even so shameless that I want to reveal the main drama of Hinako route (because this game is NOT about drama). It's about Hinako being forces to marry an unknown man that her yakuza father has chosen for marriage. Pretty decent conflict, right? I bet Kaoru steals the bride just at the altar and marries her somewhere in the woods hiding from hired goons. But reality is so much worse. The young people just come the the yakuza father and ask him to throw away clan interests and let Hinako be with the total failure that Kaoru is. I can only guess what harsh measures yakuza father is going to undertake. Wrong guess, as usual. Father does... nothing at all? Hinako just goes to their dormitory room to spend the last time at this school. At the same room with a boy. Holy crap. Why everything in this scenario is so ridiculously stupid? Why any attempt of analysis is inevitably doom to be crushed by the wall of absolute amateurism and irresponsibility? If you possess analytic thinking, please keep out of this game. It does not succumb to any rationalization attempts.


Ojou-sama Kumikyoku is not a bad game. It's a nice romantic story in inspiring atmosphere of rich and fabulous girl school. If features mild humor and supportive environment. Hinako is so innocent and straightforward that she will most probably charm you. Get your expectations within a warm romantic comedy content, and you probably won't be disappointed. It's a pure coincidence that such romcom genre hater as me got to play this game.



Sanarara is the only masterpiece of the month. I'll try to hold back while reviewing Ojou-sama Kumikyoku

1. Meitantei Conan: Akatsuki no Monument 名探偵コナン 暁のモニュメント [050421] Banpresto 1 2
Akatsuki no Monument is the second Detective Conan game for Game Boy Advance and features scenario mode as well as various mini-games. The main game story kicks off with Conan, Ran and Kogorou on their way to ceremony of a newly built resort by the sea. Kogorou Mouri, as a renowned detective (thanks to Conan), was invited to the opening ceremony, while Conan and Ran are just tagging along. As they arrive, the owner of the luxury resort asks them to look into the rumors about the land where the mansion was built on. The rumor is known as the so called "village of suicides". Later that evening, as they check the buffet and meet many other invited guests, pleasantries are exchanged and small talks reveal little to nothing of interest... until, a body falls down on a sports car that was on the display in the lobby area. Coincidence, or is there really some truth to these rumors... Conan is taking up to find out the truth and discover the mystery behind this death as well as the rumors that are plaguing the area.
There is an English review.


2. Gakuen Kaiketsu Kururi! 学園怪くるり! [050422] Troy
Main character is a school troublemaker who finds himself in a pitch. His father accumulates a large debt and flees from creditors. Son tries to involve six classmates and teachers to help him raise the money.
It's basically a bakage with a fun protagonist and hyper-stereotypical heroines. At the very least SOL scenes are funny. Then game delivers fantasy development without explaining anything, so there are questions to game's integrity. The setting is quite fresh as school is actually a huge autonomous study ground with 12,000 students fulfill every social role there, even firefighters and police. It's still a moege, but at least a funny and lively one.


3. Jun'ai Shoutengai 純愛商店街 [050422] Honey Soft
Main character attends an elite school with shy personality. There are four shopping girls in the neighborhood who see admire him, but don't have a chance talk to him. One day his sister asks him to take private tutorship over neighboring shopping girls. Life changes 180 degrees for him. He who must teach others has to learn many things about deep love himself.
Game lasts a month with a week for each girl, plus one extra week for the girl of interest. It's a pure love story with some comedy mix. There are only 2-3 H scenes per heroine, but pretty sure this game can also be called a moege with a lolicon scent.


4. Ojou-sama Kumikyoku お嬢様組曲 [050422] Symphony 1 2 3
Protagonists name is Kaoru, it is a name used for girls normally, he has no idea why his parents decided to name him like that. And just because of that when he was changing schools he gets enrolled to a girls high school by mistake. Unhappy with this turn of events at first, he soon grows to like the new school.
Basically all the three impressions are short, belong to same person and written in the same words, so I guess I'll play this "hidden gem" myself. Just mind it that I'm not good with pure romance games and choosing this one just because there is nothing of interest to me this month.


5. Boku wa Tenshi Janai yo 僕は天使じゃないよ [050428] 130cm 1 2 3

7. Kami-sama no Iu toori Kujibiki Ai-biki Scramble 神様のいうとおりッ くじびきAI-BIKIスクランブル [050428] Rune
There is a weird class at our school where people from first to third grade are gathered for some purpose. I never expected to have anything to do with it, but here I am, a new class member surrounded by seven girls. As it turns out, there is a mysterious social study lesson where relationships are determined with a lottery. The theme of first lesson is "slave".
Roles are pretty much predetermined by the lottery and do not change with the routes. Another reason why it doesn't feel interesting is that it ends halfway as experiment is cancelled. Girls are pretty cute and nice to talk to. Erotic content is not much dense, but rather fetishist with things like footjob dominating. Not sure what Rune was planning to do, but result is not bad, whatever it is.


8. Lovedol ~Lovely Idol~ らぶドル 〜Lovely Idol〜 [050428] Princess Soft 1
The Lovely Idols are a group of young idol singers who have become very popular. The player takes the role of Fujisawa Tomohiro, managing the girls' schedules and helping them improve their skills. The player also talks to the girls about their troubles and can date them. The game could be considered a part of the raising sim sub-genre due to its focus on training the idols.
I'm not the target audience for this another Princess Soft fluke.


9. Mabino Style マビノ×スタイル [050428] KID
In this magical love simulation, you get to know six young witches in training as you yourself study at a magic school set in a different world. Your goal in studying is to return to your own world. At the start of every in-game month, you set up your hourly schedule, choosing from six different forms of magic to practice with one of the girls. Between learning, you go out with the girls on dates. Based on your responses in conversation, the girls' feelings towards you change.
Another SIM game that I don't care about.


10. Milkyway 3 [050428] Witch
Over 20 years have passes since events of Milkyway 2. Cafe owners migrated overseas leaving the establishment for Sakuya to inherit. Once again he returns to the cafe in attempt to try to revitalize it with new workers and fight debt. Young entertainment genius Koibun buys crumbling Milkyway from Sakuya. Both descendants of former heroines and new girls flood the coffee shop once more.
There's a long management part that determines heroine, then it moves to ADV part. Game has improved greatly in scenario composition and personality depth, but still lacks in comedy description and game design refinement.


11. Nusunde MyHeart 盗んでMyHeart [050428] Lover Soul
Tokyo, 21st century.
City drown in a long recession is shocked by a series special theft crimes. The swiftest of those phantom thieves is red-haired girl Kaito Bunny the Taker. 
Main character is an orphanage boy adopted by Fujinomiya family. His acquaintance with Ryoko girl from this family strangely coincides with the beginning of thefts.
Information is fatally missing. Neither character descriptions, nor motivations are given properly. It's a very painful to read bakage with jokes being funny only in the head of scenario writer.


12. Oni Kagura 鬼神楽 [050428] Studio e.go!
Main character finally hunts down the demon who killed his whole family. But fight proceeds unfavorably, and on the brink of defeat he tears off demon's arm and devours it becoming half-demon himself. The demon flees, and protagonist's wounds get treated by shrine maidens. But that's only a small delay on the road of revenge.
Compared to Natsu Kagura, development system is severely cut. Upon defeat protagonist turns into a demon gaining new abilities and contributing to game's insult scenes. Difficulty level is quite low, so collecting defeat HCG is still difficult due to weakness of bosses.


13. School Days [050428] 0verflow 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

16. Sanarara サナララ [050429] NekoNeko Soft 1 2 3 4
It was something that could happen to anyone — a tale with a tinge of mystery...
One day, a girl I didn't know approached me; she told me she would make true any wish I desired — but only one.
"Really?" I thought to myself. She didn't exactly look dependable.
She started explaining how it would work as I listened on in disbelief.
"Let's see, according to the manual..."
1. Once and but once in your life, one wish shall be granted.
2. This opportunity will be given to all who live in this world.
3. One cannot know when it will be offered ahead of time.
4. The one notifying you of the opportunity shall be known as the Navigator; until the wish is fulfilled, they shall not be freed from their position.
5. The Recipient of the Navigator's aid shall later become another's Navigator.
6. Once their duty is complete, the Navigator shall lose all memory of the event. [or both, unclear]
(1). When a Navigator, you are as insubstantial as mist to anyone but the Recipient.
(2). You will not be able to tell anyone else of this.
(3). If a wish is deemed obviously impossible to grant, it may be disregarded; be careful.
(4). You must decide what to wish for within one week.
Well, that was certainly an explanation.
I wasn't about to believe her based on her testimony alone, but she did strike me as... subtly different, in some way.

Foreword: I liked character designs and wide use of weapons first of all. The story looked promising. Palette is also a notable player on the visual novel scene. I ignored its first clumsy works, but it's high time for it to make a stand.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v2921


Synopsis: Main character is an agent of a space development company. He receives a task from his assassinated boss to attack a certain laboratory and destroy girl Theta who represents an important research. He executes this will, but only escapes with the girl instead of killing her. Organization issues a bounty for their heads, but Theta has a strong determination to follow protagonist.

Three bounty hunters set a trap, but one of them is saved by protagonist in the end, so they form an alliance. There can't be peace until new organization boss is defeated. But what secrets does Theta hide with her silence?


Game type: SF action story

Character Design rating: 7/10

Protagonist rating: 5/10

Story rating: 5/10

Game quality: 6/10

Overall rating: 6/10


Well, I'm not impressed. It's actually a weak game that should get 5/10, but heroine Holly (Takumi's lover prior to fleeing from organization) mends things to a certain extent. There are five heroines each with neat character designs. But somehow Saki and Meifeng get only horrible CG and even poor sprites, so they just don't feel right. Rea is a maid archetype, and she does not stand out much of her comfort zone. Theta is our loli main heroine, but she comes right from the laboratory, so she represents naive trait. Only Holly has an interesting background, conflict and development. She's got perfect looks in her leather suit and glasses as well. Game could be saved with characters alone even with such simple story if other heroines were at least half as cool as Holly. That inevitably brings us to the story itself.


But actually almost the whole story is given in the synopsis. Half of the game is taken just to cover the synopsis events. The other half we fight the poor new boss armed only with katana with our squad of experienced fighters with firearms. And the same fight with the same backgrounds and flow happens twice in the game which provokes a strong deja vu feeling... There's a lot of questions to boss motivation and reasoning. Presenting antagonist as a fanatic is a very poor thing to do in any scenario. The first screenshot in the review actually represents how stupid the story can be (but mind it that Theta is not quite herself there). The worst part is that 99% of the story is exactly the same in every heroine route. I wanted  to cover all five heroine endings, but the story is just the same, so there's little point in doing so, so I just covered two heroines, plus Holly. There's very little change apart of H event and ending scene. One detail is different, but it's already in the spoiler league. Not everything is bad with the story, actually. I liked the world view of space colony and wicked space development organization pursuing its interests. Three heroines form a bounty hunter unit and fulfill missions together. Both Meifeng and Theta are kind of hackers supervising the missions. So there is its share of goodness. Game resembles D.U.O. ~Song for All~ a lot, but with less mature characters this time. There is even also bar that plays center role in the game.

It's hard to talk about the game that fails to inspire. So let's just look at something that inspires me much more in this game. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Holly!






Parfait ~Chocolat Second Brew~ is the only masterpiece this month. I'll try to find some merit in the less known game MERI+DIA ~Maria Diana~

1. Blue Flow ブルーフロウ [050304] Kogado Studio
You can't learn the value of piece unless you experience war. World war breaks out after hundreds of peaceful centuries. The starting point is invasion of Allied Planetary Forces to the planet Nectal controlled by the Earth government. The defenders put up a fierce fight using giant robots as main weapons.
Main character gets trapped with his two friends during this invasion and is saved by the giant robot unit with 14 female soldiers as operators. Boys take this chance to join the defense forces. But outside the battle machines pilots are just frail girls with youth complexes and problems.
Genre is RTS limited to battles. The mix of tactical parts and girl events is nothing new, we've seen it all in many games starting from Foxy. But really - 14 heroines for capture? Developers must be very proud of the gameplay part to repeat the game so many times.


2. Samurai Jupiter 侍ジュピター [050304] Mosaic
Main character returns to his home town for the first time in many years. He helps Jupiter to repel enemy attack and gets involved in the struggle. Every day is different in the company of mysterious classmate Waruru and girl Rikako who Jupiter brought from the future. What awaits him?
Scenario is short and branches off early. Heroines' drama is laughable. Game has a good share of insult scenes. Volume is too low and H oriented to talk seriously about this game.


3. Tantei Jinguuji Saburou Series No.06: Rokumai no Hankou 探偵 神宮寺三郎 Series No.06 6枚の犯行 [050309] WorkJam
A famous photographer asks her daughter to be guarded. The day after Jinguji Temple was laid, a murder occurred in the apartment where Sayaka Kuju was located.
The series does not need explanation.


4. Gadget ガジェット [050311] Black Rainbow
You're playing as an average schoolboy. He's the usual bright and cheerful fellow, and hangs out with his best friend and fellow classmates. He now lives with his cousin since the death of his parents. Turns out the cousin is some kind of inventive genius...
Only one heroine remains a loli after growing up, so I'll let it slip. There are three periods in the game - childhood, school and grown-ups. First two parts feature bright romantic development while the final one is a devilish one. First two parts proceed as a royal road. There are 5+2 heroines able to develop in two ways, so there are 14 heroine archetypes overall. The text is good and overall feeling is satisfactory, but game does not feel special.


5. Kimi ni Tomoru Hi 君に燈る灯 [050318] Emu
After quitting a job he's been working at for a few years, the protagonist, Kaito Akutsu, wandered to a small town named Otaru in Hokkaido.
"What is it that I want to do...."
Being sick of the city life, the protagonist fled his hometown. There's no particular reason for picking Otaru. He simply headed off to Hokkaido after deciding to leave; Otaru is simply town that the ferry arrived at by chance.
Not knowing where to go, the aimless protagonist starts a new life in this town with a mysterious atmosphere. While looking for a way to make a living, 3 mysterious girls appears in front of the protagonist and offers him a job. This encounter forever changes the protagonist's destiny.
Atmosphere is the selling point here as each of three heroines has a serious dramatic story behind their backs. Quiet, relaxing, romantic. It's a small, but delicate and beautiful love story.


6. Tantei Kibukawa Ryousuke Jikentan The Masquerade Lullaby 探偵・癸生川凌介事件譚 仮面幻影殺人事件 [050324] Genki
A detective and his agency is tasked with solving murder mysteries across Japan.
Console detective novels is not my thing at all.


7. Angel Type [050325] minori
A "minori feat. Aeris" interactive novel.
Fujishiro Nao had to drop out of school and stay in hospital for a while due to a mental breakdown. After getting better, he now attends to an evening school.
This story is about his experiences meeting three girls that are wounded like him. Maybe in each other, they can find the cure for the loneliness and sorrow they felt so deeply...
Brand Aeris dissolved just before releasing this work, so minori is basically publisher, but not developer. Game boasts of unusual and unique atmosphere. There are four heroines each having a story about one and a half hours long including bad endings. The process leading to confession scene is super short and thus unsatisfactory. H events can issue tears at best. With such volume and art it's difficult to expect anything better.


8. Aoi Sora no Neosphere 蒼い空のネオスフィア [050325] Kuma-san Team 1
A sequel of Tristia of the Deep-Blue Sea from Kogado Studio(Kumasan Team). Set in the Neosphere kingdom that fly in the air by ancient E technology. Neosphere kept going to ruin after world union war. And then, Nanoca was called to rebuild the kingdom.
There is a small English review.


9. Maou to Odore! - Legend of Lord of Lords 魔王と踊れ!─ Legend of Lord of Lords [050325] catwalk 1
You wake up in your room and find a woman, whom you don't know, standing there. She says that you are the reincarnation of her liege. The Demon Lord who was sealed away centuries ago by the goddess of the land.

Threatened by her, you follow her. In the first dungeon, you save a priestess who thinks you're the Messiah coming to save the lands from evil...
There is a small English review.


10. MERI+DIA ~Maria Diana~ MERI+DIA ~マリアディアナ~ [050325] Palette
Main character is an agent of a space development company. He receives a task from his assassinated boss to attack a certain laboratory and destroy girl Theta who represents an important research. He executes this will, but only escapes with the girl instead of killing her. Organization issues a bounty for their heads, but Theta has a strong determination to follow protagonist.
Three bounty hunters set a trap, but one of them is saved by protagonist in the end, so they form an alliance. There can't be peace until new organization boss is defeated. But what secrets does Theta hide with her silence?
Should I even mention that I'm reviewing this game? It must be clear as day by now.


11. Parfait ~Chocolat Second Brew~ パルフェ ~ショコラ second brew~ [050325] Giga 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Six months ago, Takamura Hitoshi watched Famille, the cafe his deceased brother established, go up in smoke. The employees and the memories they shared might have survived, but without a building there can be no cafe; Hitoshi and co. are left with no choice but to abandon Famille.
But as luck - or perhaps fate - would have it, Hitoshi gets a second chance when he receives a phone call from a new mall asking him to open a branch of Famille inside their building. Hitoshi can't refuse the offer to carry on his brother's will, and after a few twists and turns a new Famille is born with Hitoshi as the manager.
Of course, life never quite goes that smoothly. Things are a mess both in the kitchen and on the floor because two key staff members refused to return. Hitoshi himself had to take a break from college in order to make opening the new cafe a reality. But perhaps the biggest problem of all is staring Famille right in the face - Curio, the popular cafe that Famille was "inspired" by in the first place, happened to open a branch in the same shopping center directly across from Famille...
And thus the new Famille's battle for survival begins.
Over ten reviews for an untranslated Giga game? World must have gone mad.


12. Sengoku no Imouto Shichinin no Imouto 戦国の妹 七人の妹 [050325] Ja no Michi wa Hebi Soft 1
Your village asked you to go and hire bodyguards to protect it against the bandits, so you went with your younger-sister-like-childhood-friend Suzu-chan and hired six (technically five) people, all girls. When you came back, the villagers become suspicious of those people they didn't know, even more since they were all females and they couldn't imagine them being bodyguards at all.
In the end, you lied and persuaded the villagers that the girls were in fact... your sisters, whom your father left everywhere... (your father had such a reputation...)
There is a small English review.


13. Usotsuki wa Tenshi no Hajimari ウソツキは天使のはじまり [050325] Saga Planets
Main character miraculously survives in several certain death situations. He starts to see invisible to other people angel and demon fight each other at such times. Both angel and demon become weakened due to human awareness about them, so they decide to live together with protagonist till their powers restore.
There are five heroines overall including our celestial friends who  exist mostly for H events. Genre is absurd comedy. The development is vague and not really explained. The London trip feels especially uncalled for as it fits within the story poorly. Writing lacks power. There are too many irritating factors to enjoy the game.


14. Virginia ~Hontou no Sekai~ バージニア ~真実の未来~ [050325] Unicorn-A
Main character is a captain of knights returning with his subordinates to their kingdom after winning a tournament. Their vehicle gets attacked on the way while horizon gets dyed with fire. What's happened to their kingdom during their absence?
Game is an RPG with easy battles and insult scenes at defeats and some wins. Bad ends are actually hardest to see since it's very difficult to lose. Neither gameplay nor H events are decent enough to recommended here.


15. Virgin Snow Ura ~Yukifuru Oka de Anata to~ Virgin SNOW 裏~雪降る丘であなたと~ [050325] Runrun Soft
In addition to remastered previous game content and full voicing there is new male main character perspective in addition to Mizuki Narumi perspective at former female perspective scenes.
Cool story, bro. But not good enough reason to discuss an alternative version of the old game.


16. Yunohana ゆのはな [050325] Pulltop 1
On his winter vacation away from University, Kusatsu Takuya was travelling around on his motorcycle with his guitar when he lost control outside the rural town of Yunohana and crashed into a small shrine on the side of the road. When he regained consciousness, a strange looking girl was floating in the air above him. With a smile on her face, she introduced herself as Yunoha, the guardian of this area, and told Takuya she has healed his wounds with her powers.
In order to repay Yunoha for "saving his life", Takuya has to take care of the repair fees to fix the shrine - a grand total of about 2,350,000 yen. Now Takuya has no choice but to head towards the town of Yunohana to find a job, where this heart-warming fairy tale of winter unfolds...
There is an English review.


17. Kono Hareta Sora no Shita de この晴れた空の下で [050331] Cromwell 1
The game takes place in the near future where so-called "Mimic" robots work in place of humans. Playing as Reichi Kuroha, a member of a government investigation team, your job is to investigate the mysterious suicide of a Mimic -- a strange occurrence, since Mimics are not supposed to kill themselves. The game includes a number of heroines, both Mimic and human, with whom you'll get involved as the story progresses.
The story is frustrating with all development clustered in the end. It's something between a fine and a bad work suitable probably only for SF enthusiasts.

Foreword: Liar-soft games are always absurd and somewhat fun, but of varying quality. Seven-Bridge actually has the same scenario writer as Kusarihime ~Euthanasia~ (at least one of the three authors) , so I see all the reasons to give it a bite.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v597


Synopsis: In a parallel world, the history takes a different turn at the start of the 20th Century. Black death plague ravages the European Countries, death toll is so high that when the Ottoman Empire strikes from the east they are powerless to resist. In the name of Jihad, Europe burns.

Ten years later, when the World War starts chaos and poverty spreads to Beijing. He decides to go back to his hometown, better to be at home if the war will be everywhere... But there are no trains to Europe except the rumored "Black Train Joan". He tries to get on that train but the only people with the "Black Ticket" are allowed to board.

Unable to find a way to get abroad he gives himself to alcohol, later that day on the street he meets a girl who offers him a black ticket. Somehow he can't read the thoughts of this particular girl. She can't speak a word either, an another strange thing about her is that she covers her hands with long dark gloves, never taking them off for any reason...

After some difficulty in conversation, he learns that her name is Emma and she would give him a ticket if he agrees to travel to Europe as her companion. They board the train together and take of on a journey that will take them over seven bridges and many ordeals...

First of all, I was really surprised by the length of the game. Half of the same day I was recording second half of Steel's epilogue, but the whole playthrough of Seven-Bridge fit into the remaining half of the day. Game has only one route and only one ending. 


I call genre a road movie story, because we never get far from the black train. Sometimes it runs at full speed of 800 miles an hour and sometimes makes stops, but it always remains at the core of the game. The story begins in a normal manner, but very soon strange legends of golems, ghosts and flying trains show up, and it would not be Liar Soft if things weren't turning mad very soon. There has been a big number of space expresses in Japanese anime (Galaxy Express 999), literature (Night on the Galactic Railroad) and even in visual novel genre (D ~Sono Keshiki no Mukougawa~), so it's a safe bet where it's also possible to insert multiple references to previous media. I believe genre can also be called a parody for the vast number of different genre parodies involved. Maybe it's the result of three different scenario writers working together.


What surprised me even more than the length is the abyssmal number of H events in the game. They begin pretty much spontaneously and get the same craziness momentum as the absurd scenario. What I appreciate is that these scenes aren't always isolated from the other world. By the end of the game they involve more and more characters and - ehm - spectators. They give out a lively integrated with the story feeling.


World view is eccentric, and story becomes ridiculous as well. Basically, protagonist from german origin ends up on a black train where Christians go from China to Europe to start a war with Muslims there. Game is divided into three chapters. First one is pretty normal travel from China to Siberia across lifeless landscapes. But captain of the train spontaneously decides to take a day off, so protagonist somehow finds himself in the machine room trying to drive. Only he can see button of various colors, and those colors actually have supernatural powers. The marks the first supernatural event. The second chapter is about getting away from Novonikolaevsk in Siberia towards Tashkent in order to get to Samara from there. The reason is supposedly Bolshevist attacks. Characters hope that Muslims are peaceful during Ramadan, but they get a good share of adventures in the prairies and Istanbul. The third chapter is about arriving to Prague and is something absolutely different with sanity vanishing without a trace.


Humor is quite to my liking. It's either situational or absurd. For example, it's nice to see how conductor Joel tries to speak broken English in extreme situations and then asks everyone around whether she said something bad. Same as in Sapphism no Gensou every character presents a different country, so their interaction is amusing to read.


Overall, I was not expecting much from this game, but it proved to be an enjoyable ride. It's definitely not a place to seek a serious story. It lacks integrity and finishes as soon as Emma's story is finished. But Liar-Soft charm is seen in many parts of the game, so company fans should not miss it.



Foreword: I never expected a 80 hour long race out of this "episodic" story. How much time should pass till opening? What about length of the epilogue? Should there be some lines after the final credits? Believe me, Steel will surprise you with each answer. I knew that scenario from Kadokura Keisuke would be enjoyable. But it took me a full week to be able to digest it.

Synopsis: The protagonist, Tomoya, was abandoned by his mother at a tender age. He was taken in by Honjou Arisa after a chance meeting. Four girl adoptees who had joined the Honjou family home for similar reasons also lived there.

Though they were not related by blood, Tomoya treated the girls as if they were his siblings. They lived peaceful lives at the Honjou residence... but one day, he encountered a strange woman in town. She was wreathed in something that looked like iron – and upon seeing her figure, he remembered that he, too, had once harbored such a metallic augment.

"Is that... your Anima?"

A right arm turned to metal... A peculiar corpse discovered at school... A transfer student exuding dark mist... And a foreign warrior wreathed in thick steel armor... Tomoya's peaceful life would soon begin to crumble as disaster came to visit him and his sisters. To protect them, he shall have to once again wreathe his right arm in Anima.

Game type: Supernatural abilities chuuni story

Character Design rating: 8/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 9/10

Game quality: 4/10

Overall rating: 7/10


Basics first. This is a story of a big and powerful Honjo clan. Main character Tomoya is an adopted child who lives in the family for the last five years. Only few families possess the anima ability to turn their body into weapons. They have rivals, but don't show their powers to the outsiders. Tomoya only starts to master his anima. That brings us to structure.

There are four chapters. Three first chapters have similar shape. Each of them is devoted to Honjo sisters and their anima - first Misaki, then Ayano, finally Iori. These three chapters have two endings each - initially the true one when the heroine comes off the stage in some way and then the side happy ending with each heroine. After each of four chapters there's a short explanatory chapter which is devoted mostly to past events and Honjo Alice heroine. The fourth chapter has only one ending and is devoted to the most mysterious heroine Nishinomiya Akizuki. It also covers most of the loose ends of the game. Epilogue chapter (with a small Final chapter which finalizes Explanatory Chapters) is very different from the other chapters and presents after-story for the different characters that remain on the stage up to the point. 


Phew, with that covered - almost - without spoilers it's possible to go on. Story is thrilling, and text is really rich. Characters are quite developed despite having no voicing thanks to whole 15-hour long chapter devoted to each of them. What I liked the most is that there are very few SOL scenes. Protagonist Tomoya starts off pretty well with all his powers awakening gradually and evolving with more emotional experiences. But game really lacks a good conflict. There are some goons (including elite ones) from the rival family, but that's it. So in result Tomoya just does not have opportunity to actually fight since we constantly need to show battle prowess of our chapter heroines. Thus he gets from cool to passive losing charm. Due to the lack of conflict some fights happen even between heroines out of trifles. But on the other hand, some antagonists jump to the stage out of the blue. Momentum never gets lost.


Time to get back to story since it's the main flavor of the game. Each chapter is actually very different, so we can't stop being surprised. Misaki chapter is our straightforward nakige with personal drama and focus on the heroine alone. Ayano chapter suddenly changes focus from heroine to her anima. Iori chapter is totally different again since Iori actually can't fight. Maid Noriko has to fulfill that function, so Noriko actually gets her own ending as well. Third chapter also marks the main conflict of the game and uncovers Honjo clan secrets. Fourth chapter has the most straightforward conflict between main heroines Alice and Akizuki against their own antagonists. As for epilogue, it gives off too much of Clannad scent which is a great minus for such Clannad hater as me. Each chapter is named after anima name and explanatory chapters are called Shizoid because of the very different perspective presented.


The saddest part is graphical presentation and absence of voicing. That gives a huge penalty to the quality evaluation. I can't really imagine many persons to be able to read such a huge story with such poor presentation. But - on the other hand - how many real modern masterpieces are there without voicing? Can't really remember even one out of the blue. That's an enormous feat by itself.



Foreword: Abandoner is the second winner of poll for the extra review in 2004. There are actually two reviews already (1 2), but it does not hurt to give it a fresh look. Clephas recommends not to read this visual novel unless we are really hard masochists, but every visual novel reader is at least a bit of masochist for reading such long stories while normal people can't endure even director's cut movie versions. As for me, such question does not even stand - it's enough to look at the number of visual novels I played without really enjoying them. So let's start.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v1182



Synopsis: A cross between fantasy, science fantasy, and mystery. The protagonist is a former detective who is living in virtual exile in a walled-off city occupied by foreign military forces. It is a lawless city, where just about anything can happen...

Game type: Superhuman experiments story

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 6/10

Game quality: 7/10

Overall rating: 6/10


First of all, let's observe the plot since it's so vaguely drawn in both reviews. The stage is an imaginary city that resembles Italian city of the first third of the 20th century. It's under occupation of Tristian forces for the last 30 years. Main character Neil Fox is a former detective who now works independently and takes bounty hunter jobs. This time he is promised an outstandingly generous payment for rescuing some girl from a kidnapper and protecting her. But kidnapper turns out to be girl's guardian. The place gets ambushed by the military police. What makes this girl so important? That's what'd described in the first 30 minutes of the game. We successfully rescue that Helena girl and conceal her in the hideout. The girl is as if from another world since she has a poor grip on the reality.


But then the problems start. Or, rather, nothing starts. Instead of returning girl to the request giver, Niel tries to find Helena's father and find out more about her past in the mysterious laboratory. In the meantime he just hangs around mafia bar and participates in some of their activities that COINCIDENTALLY bring him closer to Helena and Abandoner mystery. Even when Helena disappears at some time of the story, nothing really changes. He just continues to do jobs for the mafia. If even feels like he totally forgets about Helena in the second (longest) chapter. Game has neither an aim nor the conflict. Just for that reason I can't consider Abandoner a masterpiece. 


There is also a problem of main character Neil Fox. He takes a job to rescue the hostage and protect her, but he has absolutely no weapons. He carries some rusty gun just as a means of threat, but that's it. He is unable to win any fight. All he does is run away and hide. And thus he can't really influence the outcome of events which - only by some incredible luck - develop in his favor. That's realistic, but kind of boring for the main character.


I rated heroines even lower than protagonist, because they aren't loveable. Helena is our out of this world girl who whispers trivial things all the time. There's little of interest in her. Next is mafia daughter Hilda Lutz. To tell the truth, I can't take girls seriously if their single boob is bigger than their head. She's very knowledgeable, but that's it. She hardly plays any important role in the story. The last heroine is military police sergeant Cecilia. Well, she's the most irritating character in this whole game. She's stubborn and pushy as she considers herself to be the only representative of power in this city. She's that character who does not listen to anyone and just tries to force her opinion everywhere. So I see it why Clephas blames this game of characters not listening to each other, but I don't see any other characters with this trait. Cecilia position and personality is to blame, but not everyone else. The mafia guys are all simpletons and can't be judged harshly. The first time we meet them, one 50-year looking guys cries because he's afraid of BOOKSHELVES. Yeah, stupid, but just treat them as comical characters. The poor Tony eventually just goes into reckless rage crying out "I'm Antonio Beltamo!" over and over. Well, I just did not pay much attention to mafia guys who are evidently just cannon fodder.


I kind of lowered BGM level too much in the video so that music can hardly be heard, but BGM is actually rarely plays in this game. It's the sound of constant rain that plays most of the time instead. Music is nice, but its sudden cut offs irritate.


What I especially want to point out is that there are NO fantasy elements in the game. All the alterations presented can be addressed to the results of human experiments. Just science is very advanced for the corresponding time period taken. There's no fantasy scenes, no magic, no resurrections - nothing. It's an atmospheric hard boiled realistic story that should not be really compromised with fantasy elements.


In conclusion, this is a good story for the story's sake. But in order to like it you need to put up with senile mafia characters, not exactly lovable heroines and passive sneaky MC. This game is not about characters, thus each heroine has just one H event that happens kind of spontaneously at any point of the story when it's convenient - not necessarily in the end. Girls don't really have after-stories and actual roues, because it's not a charage. It's a single road story. If you're interested in the Abandoner mystery and can tolerate the cast, then you can enjoy the story even without being a really hard masochist.



Foreword: It's requested as extra review, so I'm pleased to tell what kind of masterpiece this game is. It does not mean I'm not reviewing Abandoner, though. Both games stood so close in the poll that I could not make my mind in any way.

VNDB: https://vndb.org/v1085



Synopsis: The game revolves around the main character's 3 days repeating over and over again, where he is constantly being killed in the third day of the story (in various ways) but magically being brought back to life in the first day to repeat his 3 days. Your goal here is to solve the mystery behind the death of your sempai and also to find the identity of the murderer.

Game type: Horror looped murder story with fantasy elements

Character Design rating: 8/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 8/10

Game quality: 6/10

Overall rating: 7/10


I only found one impression (1), and it's not very elaborate, so let's dissect things properly. 3days is a classic loop game, but for me it's the same kind of classic as To Heart for galge - boring and exhausting. The same loop of three days goes on for some 15 laps (maybe less if some alternative branches are skipped) and finishes with more and more elaborate ways of killing and sometimes raping. But the worst thing for me is that specific scene needs to be triggered in all of three heroine initial roues. I had to do much more loops, because I triggered only one Tamaki H scene while I needed to find another one for her item to show at the main screen indicating her route fully done.


That being said, first half of 3days is of little interest to me. Watching the same events over and over and girls die over and over in different situations is not really what constitutes for fun pastime. However, the second part actually manages to present a favorable impression by cleverly mixing past, present and future Ryou stories. We get acquainted with the new charming heroine Miyu who has to bear all the positive intentions of the game alone just because she's the only heroine that we don't see dying miserably with torn apart body and face distorted with fear. Magic finally comes to the stage, and game turns into a fantasy battle from a pesky contemporary murder story. 

But I don't suffer from short memory, so horrible first part gets a huge evaluation penalty from me. There are also other negative factors. Basically, game is a royal story. That goes for both first and second part. The individual heroine endings take really like a few minutes astray from the main story. Another negative factor is poor CG representation and occasional lack of voicing. I can remember very few CG after playthrough, so it's constant character sprites hell. Also, I can't really stand Harry Potter, so second part is rather repulsive with all the magic domination and stuff. At the same time Tsukiko as the best starting heroine never receives her route in the main game and plays mostly a comical role. There are too many deficiencies to neglect in the overall evaluation.


In the raw outcome, 3days is a masterpiece, but only thanks to the main concept and true route in the second part. It occupies a firm position among classics as one of grandfathers of loop visual novels. Tsukiko and later Miyu don't let the game to turn into total despair. But as to my recommendations... I'm not so sure. Game fails as a detective story and suffers a lot whenever it tries to advance romance. Would I really play this game if I knew that it'd total to magic battle? I'm pretty sure that I would not, although such turn of events was really unexpected. Game really feels old and lacking production quality. It's still a good game at the core, but who would want to get to the core when there are so many better quality stories nowadays.



I consider only Steel to be the only masterpiece as of now. But things may change as I review both Steel and Seven-Bridge

1. Rozen Maiden ローゼンメイデン [050202] WorkJam
Anime story is relayed to mobile phones. If game is finished with good results, there is also an original after-story scenario.
I really need to devise a way to block such "games".


2. Kurokami Shoujotai 黒髪少女隊 [050204] Honey Pot
Kaoru enters a high school and he moves to the school dormitory. But actually it is a girl's high school.... The school principal says, "I'm sorry. We thought you were a girl because your name is Kaoru." He reluctantly starts his school life there and the principal introduces him four girls to take care of him. Their name is "Kurokami Shoujotai"! Kaoru's hectic school life starts...
Slightly old-fashioned fantasy youth comedy with clever use of graphic and sound effects. Scenario is unexpectedly serious itself, but with slapstick comedy scenes. Ending clearly suggests a sequel, but it's hardly a genre that can afford one...


3. Ichigo 100%: Strawberry Diary いちご100%ストロベリーダイアリー [050210] Tomy
Based on the hit manga series and its anime adaptation.
Strawberry 100% chronicles the school years of Junpei Manaka, a student and aspiring movie director, and his relationships with the girls that enter his life. At the start of the series, he encounters a mysterious and beautiful girl on the roof of his middle school, but does not remember anything about her other than that she wears strawberry-print panties. She leaves before he can talk to her, but he finds a notebook nearby, belonging to Aya Toujou, an ordinary-looking glasses-wearing girl who is a gifted writer. The two become friends with the common ambition of turning great stories into movies. Thinking that Tsukasa Nishino, the most popular girl in his school, might be the mystery girl, he asks her out in a bold confession at the chin-up bar, and is surprised when she accepts. He later realizes Tsukasa is not the mystery girl but chooses to continue their relationship anyway. He places into Izumizaka High, but learns that Aya has given up an offer to the prestigious Oumi Academy to attend Izumizaka with him and that she is the mystery girl.
At Izumizaka, Junpei encounters a feisty girl named Satsuki Kitaoji. The two become friends because of common interests, but Satsuki falls in love with him. Junpei tries to join the film club but learns it has been disbanded. He revives the club thanks to Aya, Satsuki, and his high school friends as members. Junpei also discovers that his childhood friend Yu Minamoto is moving into his family's home, but she ends up attending Oumi Academy. The film club make one film each year, each written by Aya and directed by Junpei, which is screened at the school festival. Satsuki stars in their first film, Tsukasa is the heroine of their second film, and Aya is the heroine of the third movie.
Over the course of his high school life Junpei experiences many awkward moments involving the four girls in his life.
Again, I wish I had a way to block games repeating anime story completely.


4. Pure x Cure [050211] ChuableSoft
As the male nurse at a co-ed school, you are viewed with suspicion. Can you gain the students' trust?
Game has clear structure - prologue, episode 1 and episode 2. Because of that tempo feels very good. Dialogues are funny. In the second half of the game each heroine has a serious problem to deal with. Another good feature is that upon entering individual route other heroines still persist and support to their best ability. Protagonist is unreliable, but characters are lovely enough to get affected with.


5. Steel [050211] Graviton
The protagonist, Tomoya, was abandoned by his mother at a tender age. He was taken in by Honjou Arisa after a chance meeting. Four girl adoptees who had joined the Honjou family home for similar reasons also lived there.
Though they were not related by blood, Tomoya treated the girls as if they were his siblings. They lived peaceful lives at the Honjou residence... but one day, he encountered a strange woman in town. She was wreathed in something that looked like iron – and upon seeing her figure, he remembered that he, too, had once harbored such a metallic augment.
"Is that... your Anima?"
A right arm turned to metal... A peculiar corpse discovered at school... A transfer student exuding dark mist... And a foreign warrior wreathed in thick steel armor... Tomoya's peaceful life would soon begin to crumble as disaster came to visit him and his sisters. To protect them, he shall have to once again wreathe his right arm in Anima.
Game is not voiced, but scenario is really great and crazy. Kadokura Keisuke wrote scenario for many good games like Brayon Veda, so I'm going to see his rise with my own eyes.


6. Tonari no Maou Tsukai となりの魔王使い [050211] Beenyan
There is a house, burnt down and left for a long time, next to Haruto's house. One day, two girls come and repair it with magic, and start to live there. They are Sion and Amy. They make trouble involving Haruto....
Synopsis is neutral, so it would be bad to block it without explanation. But game is pretty much a nukige. All the magic and devil king are just accessories. The witch girls need to gather enough magic to restore house and garden, and we know the best way to gather magic energy. Story wants to be pure love one, but actually includes insults.


7. Nangoku Dominion 南国ドミニオン [050218] SofthouseChara 1
You play as Aloha, a young man with amnesia who is stranded on a volcanic tropical island with nine other people (six girls and three men), and the objective is to survive on the island, and perhaps regain your memory or gain the love of one of the girls and escape with them.
To survive on the island, you must gather food for yourself and the colony, which are gained in mini-game type commands (such as a memory card game or target-shooting), and build helpful structures on the island. You also must interact with the other people on the island, by talking to them, learning more about them, and building their affection -- or disaffection, as you can actually fight and kill other members of the island, or they can kill you! After gaining enough affection with one of the ladies, you can get H events with them, and try to escape the island with them if you have the appropriate means to get their ending.
There is kind of English review.


8. Oshikake Osanazuma 3 おしかけおさなづま3(3乗) [050218] Roll

Grandfather chooses a bride candidate to live together in one house. However, protagonist's friends rebel against this decision, so three more girls join them. Thus, a lively cohabitation of five people begins.
As a harem comedy, there's little room for the story, but the interactions are quite fun. It might be called a moege, but the slapstick part really makes this game stand out.

12. Argonauts アルゴノーツ [050225] Fairytale
Main character Naoki decides to have a space travel experience during his summer vacations. Somehow, he is assigned to a team consisting only of girls who are all musicians. It's supposed to be a fun youth voyage, but spacecraft route is crazy and full of surprises. First, the vehicle gets damaged, then spice pirates attack. Will the young people finish this journey safely?
It's a simple SF themed orthodox love story. Game is basically a one way story divided in 11 episodes. There's little development in first 8 episodes, so last three episodes get packed with events tightly to an extent if feels rushed. Depending on chosen heroine events vary very little. If feels like a cheap work only suitable for SF enthusiasts due to lots of SF elements and gadgets.


13. Daisy Chain ~Terminator Girl~ でいじーちぇーん 〜TERMINATOR GIRL〜 [050225] Kisu
Class idol and rich girl Reiko finds an interest in an average boy Mamoru. When he tries to confess to Reiko, the whole place gets drawn in a flash where girl Ibrize stands.

At the same time another girl calling herself Mamoru's daughter Mana arrives from future to prevent the change in history. The situation is aggravated by the attacks of "Lilith" type androids. Which side will protagonist take?
Game's described as “Slapstick Robot ADV”. The story only becomes serious towards the end. Such story does not impress me at all, but tastes vary.


14. Dyogrammaton ジオグラマトン [050225] Clock Up team Dyo 1
2005 A.D., Tokyo. Monsters have appeared, destroying any human traces indiscriminately. As a counter-measure, a special intercepting force called DAKT was created.
This is the story of these urban fighting robot units.
There is a small review that describes game well. Robot battles have little to do with tactics here as there's not much to control. Moe anime girls are able to create surprisingly nice atmosphere. Individual routes feel too short, but common route is good enough.


15. Kohitsuji-tachi no Rakuen 子羊たちの楽園 [050225] Ignition
A peaceful town "Uraisgau" where magic coexists with steam engine technology. For the last years it focuses on education to improve sacred magic skills through studying technology. The best students become Holy Knights, but on a peaceful continent it becomes a honorary profession.
This year there are a lot of problem students, including main character who can't stand theology, but has to obey his uncle priest.
A new transfer student is an oriental girl Aina who comes to study other types of technology. She invites protagonist to her study group and says they already know each other from the childhood when they were separated...
Game begins with comedy development and explaining the basics of this world. There are only three heroines for capture, so it feels fresh that there are very strong heroines without their love line. So game is about chasing girls in a unique setting, and that's of little interest to me. At least game is not nukige as many other Ignition games (the number of H events per heroine is still high - five).


16. Last Story wa Anata e. ~Gift For You~ ラストストーリーはあなたへ。~Gift for you~ [050225] Panda House
One winter day main character logs in to Hypersense Network's cyber shopping mall to buy new memory. It is the so-called “Cyber Akihabara”. As soon as he punts in his ID and starts walking on the main street, his protocol is hijacked and screen distorts with poisonous colors. This illusion feels like a real Akihabara even though the weight of mouse and just bought memory can be felt in hands.
With a lightning strike electronic machine starts to act up, and protagonist finds himself dragged into a dream-like twilight world.
Scenario is subtle even though it gets divided into distinctive 12 episodes. Game starts with helping a fairy attacked by a bug. An important item is stolen by the bug, so we need to find it to help fairy return to her world. Next we walk around Akihabara and experience various stories while gathering items. Stories vary in genre a lot, but have a distinctive surreal color. Each story is from 10 to 30 minutes, so overall play time is just 3-4 hours. Game is a kusoge unless you're interested in multiple surreal Akihabara stories.

Stopping by the shrine where Yuuki worked part time as a miko priestess after my own part time job, we were about to go home together when suddenly thunder roared through the cloudless sky. Looking up I gathered Yuuki and Shana under me and ducked - promptly passing out!
When I came to I felt fine, but my cousins were looking around with worried expressions. The shrine was near several girls' schools, and as usual many of the students were walking down the street nearby - but they were wearing the most outlandish costumes!
Some were in bondage gear, some in aprons with nothing underneath, others in bunny suits and still others in swimsuits you wouldn't see even on the most radical Brazilian beach. Even stranger, the girls seemed as if what they were wearing was perfectly normal! They were looking at Shana and Yuuki in their regular uniforms as if they were the ones out of place.
At first I thought it was a prank, but no - there were too many people involved. I realized that this was in fact a gift from the gods, a boon to the luckless fellow that I had previously been, a world surrounded by the beautiful mystery of women!

Game type: Semi-cliche chunige

Character Design rating: 4/10

Protagonist rating: 4/10

Story rating: 5/10

Game quality: 6/10

Overall rating: 5/10


I did not expect to find another cliche chunige so soon, and this time there's no freshness already, so no remorse. Protagonist Kou is high school student, as usual. But what's much worse this time is that he's a puny hetare who cries and whines all the time looking for someone to save him. One day he just unexpectedly gets control over dark king spirit, so it's just another wonder waffle. All he does in the game is defeats several lower demons one by one, then faces main enemy White King, Game over. What the hell?


Heroines are sickeningly one-sided and cliche. Of course he gets a childhood friend and classmate Yuu, then imouto Misaki, ojousama classmate Mimi, mysterious transfer student looking for protagonist Miki, teacher Hitomi. The other heroine archetypes are less beaten, but are hardly any different. It's tarot cards lover gothic loli Michie, some undercover agent Ran and cat transformed into a human Benie (for those who wanted to do it with their cat?). Eight heroines that are included in such number just to extend useless plot as much as possible. The only route that stands out is actually mystery transfer student Miki. She has deep ties and history both with White and Black king. She has a very nice retro story included, and only her ending includes Solomon as character. All the other heroines end up the same - affection towards certain heroine is never explained - then said heroine gets raped by the tentacles - bingo - we love her head and heels. It's done in such a random manner that only deserves facepalm. There is zero story in all the other heroines routes. What annoys me the most is that pretty much all heroines get brainwashed and violent in other routes. It's really hard to see ojousama in what was succubus in previous route.


Answer Dead fails at character design, at CG and even at H scenes due to very primitive low range animation. So let's try to find something actually good in it. Well, Black kings starts out pretty well with the only will to "korosu" not matter who. Be he kind of gets re-educated by our whiner and looses his charm. Well, action scenes are nice. The shooter part is stupid, but can be skipped after the first lap provided that patch is used. Again, the only worthy route is Miki. Even agent Ran's route ends up same stupid as everyone else. 


Let's face it - Answer Dead is just a nukige with some B-rate plot and flashy cool protagonist just for the looks. It can't offer quality, so tries to deal with quantity that is repeated over and over in every route. It's the worst type of fake and pretentious chunige.



Foreword: I could not ignore Nitroplus work, especially one without reviews.

Synopsis: When people die with hearts filled with negative feelings, they turn into 'ghosts', haunting the world. To send those souls to the other world, angels exist, using their guns to 'kill' them. You're playing one of such angels, Wim.

Game type: Eschatology dystopia action story

Character Design rating: 10/10

Protagonist rating: 10/10

Story rating: 9/10

Game quality: 9/10

Overall rating: 9/10


Rating comments: It was a perfect game for me during the whole common route. The second half was less fascinating, but it's still one of the best games I played. 

Protagonist: Wim is mature and cool, but at the same time his consciousness is blank enough to be able to write any story. His earliest memory is white, and then he sees himself with wings and two guns beside same looking angels. He starts to hunt down ghosts of recently dead people just like everyone else. But as game unfolds, he starts to question his life...


Characters: All three heroines feel alive here. Two of them are siblings. Komaki is the older sister. She is a researcher obsessed with the angel theme. For some reason she sees angels. Fuuko is the younger sister. She can see angels as well. The first time she sees Vim, she asks to kill her. But Fuuko is also lying in coma at a hospital simultaneously... Henri is the only orthodox angel heroine. She has wings, gun and follows angel style of life without asking questions. She's tsundere'ish and hates all the ghosts of the dead people. But actually the most important character of the game is rapist and killer Jay. The whole story is based around him. Fuuko and Komaki are his blood sisters. Henri has shared memories with Jay to such an extent that Henri is stumbled every time she sees him. Assassin Issei is the father of Fuuko/Komaki/Jay. But the most cool character in the game is the oldest angel Peter. He witnessed the judgement day and afterwards taught Vim everything. By the genre's laws Peter is just destined to betray Vim at some point, but to my greatest surprise things are much more complicated here, and Peter becomes a most reliable partner.

Story: Actual story is quite complicated. 18 years ago children stopped to be born on the Earth. Most people go to work by inertia, but suicides become a common place, and streets are full of all kind of filth. Angels just patrol in search of recently dead souls - ghosts - and kill them with their guns. Game starts with a suicide and continues at a hospital with many deaths incoming. Two sisters can see angels, and in communication with them Vim starts to get interested in humans.



1) Game poses a huge number of questions. Why there are people who can see angels? What's the identity and past of angels? Why only Vim and Jay have double guns? Why Fuuko wants to die and what's wrong with her other self in coma? What's so special in Jay? Is there a way for humanity to recover? Finding answers for all those questions is the most fascinating part of the game. But the mid-game we more or less find the answers, so second half full of action does not feel as exciting.

2) Game is organized in the same theater manner as Project-μ games, and considered the action nature of the game a strong presence of Gin no Hebi is felt. Such directing is superb in comparison with other normal games.

3) Unlike other Nitroplus games that I played, dialogues play bigger role here than action scenes. It looks like self-irony to me when Vim tries to explain why he kills ghosts of dead persons and does not try to resist. The only answer he finds is that "gun calls" him to do so. Nitroplus provides so many action scenes, because cool guns call them, but it's not always the case that story must be inferior.

Overall comments: It surprises me greatly how Angelos Armas got so little attention in the West. The Japanese reviews are more or less modest in their impressions, but I've learned it the hard way that the Japanese understand nothing in plotge. It's the best Nitroplus game that I've played so far, so I denounce all my accusation that Nitroplus can produce only stupid action games.



Tenshi no Nichou Kenjuu -Angelos Armas- is the only masterpiece of the month. But too many plotge reside without reviews this month, so - surprise - I'm picking a second game for review as well - it's Answer Dead

1. Maiden Halo メイデンハロー [050105] Giant Panda
Noumi Hasegawa is a 13-years-old boy who wants to become a pianist. One night, he sees a ray of light floating in the sky. This marks his encounter with a mysterious girl called Eon. She starts living with him, and together they discover the true magic of the city they live in...
Game was sold for some 1k yen which is some 1/9th of the full price. Game starts with a calm, proceeds with depression, but ends pleasantly with a nice aftertaste. The story of a boy who struggles to play piano is less impactful than Planetarian, naturally. Basically, game is of higher quality doujin level.


2. Answer Dead [050114]  Kuro LiLiM
Main character is a weak quiet student who is bullied at school. But one day he meets a girl who wakes up Black King soul sleeping in him.
The White King quickly notices the rival appearance and sets control over the school with the help of magic. The school grounds turn into blood bath, and the royal battle approaches.
Looks like my kind of game. Shooter tag scares to an extent, but it can't stop me. Definitely reviewing it.


3. Sonic Dive ソニックダイヴ [050114] Software House Parsley
Although "Mugen no Meikyu" series was the contents of a game by which an enemy and an ally act by turns in the turn system, it is that it is changed into the action RPG by real time until now. "level "which geographical feature changes" makes still common the characteristic rule 1 to" with the previous work. Since Laila of a previous work "Sonic Princess" will mainly fight with an enemy by the elated magic which serves as a female hero, unlike action using an old sword, it becomes a colorful battle using magic. The whole atmosphere has taken in atmosphere like On-line MMORPG. For example, a character will also change Gurafikku, if a dress, arms, accessories, etc. are changed. A previous work also changes colorfully even to a dress this time, although the graphics of arms or a shield were changing. Since a hero is a woman, new items, such as a swimming suit, a sailor suit, and nurse dress, also appear.
This whole series is much more about RPG, that visual novel. This time it's real-time and very grindy.


4. Toshiaki としあき [050114] D.O.
There are two types of humans in the world - nerds and and normal people. Of course main character Toshiaki is a nerd. His family holds a ryokan at a provincial town. But as long there is internet, he does not care at all. Somehow, he gets involved in a love affair. Can he pull it through?
It's a side story, so the play time is short. Feels more like a trial of Uminomichi. Games are of very similar atmosphere, so compliment each other well.


5. Mahou Sensei Negima! 1-Jikanme ~Okochama Sensei wa Mahou Tsukai!~ 魔法先生ネギま! 1時間目 お子ちゃま先生は魔法使い! [050120] Konami 1
The first PS2 game based on the manga of the same name. Very loosely corresponds to the events of the first three volumes of the manga.
Purely for manga/anime fans.


6. A Profile ア・プロフィール [050121] Akabei Soft2 1 2 3 4
Beneath the scorching sun of midsummer, a pampered, aloof sort of girl declared that there are four windows through which to view a person.
She was not the only one by his side, for he'd had a wounded girl thrust upon him - a wounded girl who could not help but depend upon him, as the girl he had known for so long once had. 
Now, however, that old friend of his vanishes in the dead of night to prowl where an ordinary girl should not.
The blue sky of the stadium and the filth of the city streets spread out before him; unsustainable aspirations and an unsustainable love beset him.
What in the world is he thinking as he gazes at their profiles?
There are English reviews.


7. Café AQUA Café AQUA -カフェ アクア- [050121] Rasen
Main character is a student who gets in an traffic incident on his bike. To cover the repair cost he starts to work part-time at “Cafe-AQUA”. School festival approaches, so he gets very busy at school and at work. There are so many opportunities to get to know the surrounding girls better.
Our obligatory moege of the month.


8. Onitama 鬼魂~おにたま~ [050121] Berkana
Main character lives alone after his parents' death. Neighbor woman serves as his guardian. Protagonist can see demons invisible to the ordinary eye and begins to feel another entity inside himself. One night his ability calls him to the night school where he almost gets killed by a devilish monsters. A mysterious girl with a sword defeats the monster and saves protagonist's life. He learns that he is destined to fight and devour spirits. 
There is a pure love and devil route for each of the heroines. Scenario is the same for every heroine, so there's a feeling that everything is done for H events that are plentiful. Kind of dark moege.


9. Girls Bravo Romance15's GIRLSブラボー Romance15's [050127] Vridge Inc. 1
Yukinari Sasaki is an average high school student who was teased and bullied by girls to the point that he developed an allergic reaction, breaking out in hives whenever he comes into contact with a female. One day, when he returns home from school, he gets kicked into his bathtub by Kirie Kojima, his neighbor, and is transported to "Seiren", a mysterious world with a mostly female population
Because of this allergy capture becomes a torture, so walkthrough is a must. Anime version is not really great, and the game does not even live up to that anime.


10. Memories Off After Rain メモリーズオフ After Rain [050127] KID 1 2
Divided in three parts, the first one takes place in May, where Tomoya interacts with Yue and the rest of the girls. In the second one, Ken keeps his relationship with Hotaru. And in the last one, Tomoya fails his exams and enters on depression but Ken manages to pass.
It's kind of spin-off for the 5th anniversary of the series, so it's no wonder there's no review of it. The stories are so short, that it can all be called a fandisc.


11. Tantei Jinguuji Saburou: Shiroi Kage no Shoujo 探偵 神宮寺三郎 白い影の少女 [050127] WorkJam 1
When Jingūji attends his friend's funeral, his friend's mother asks him to investigate a missing person, while police inspector Kumano asks him to investigate the urban myth called "Yū-chan".
There is an English review.


12. Animamundi ~Owarinaki Yami no Butou~ アニマムンディ ~終わりなき闇の舞踏~ [050128] Karin Entertainment 1 2 3 4
"I shall give thee all kinds of dark ecstasy..."
Count Georik Zaberisk builds a sterling reputation as the head Royal Physician tending to the King of Hardland. However, the poor health of his frail sister, Lillith, drives him to resign from his post and retire to the countryside where he lives the charmed life of nobility. One day, while Georik is away, Lillith is accused and tried for witchcraft by an angry mob of villagers -- her head is chopped off and her body burned! Somehow Georik manages to secure Lillith’s head and to his amazement finds that she is still alive, and Georik is consumed with a desire to make Lillith whole again. Georik learns of the homunculi, who use alchemy. However, the Kingdom of Hardland had outlawed witchcraft and alchemy long ago. Georik is forced to delve into the banned world of alchemy in order to help his sister.
Game is localized and has English reviews. 


13. Henshin ☆ a la Maid へんしん☆ア・ラ・メイド [050128] FlyingShine Kotobuki
Shinjo Akemi is a director of Shinjo Institute. A mysterious creature arrives from space to rule the Earth. It aims to deprive humanity of its best weapon - battle suit "a la Maid". For that it's going take away three maid stones.
Akemi chooses three girls from all over the world to fight the impostor in battle suits imbued with pure maid feelings.
Can these three person protect the Earth?
I don't even know how to discuss this epic crappiness. The story itself is short and only events with individual girls matter here. It's still a weird light comedy game, if someone is ever giving it a try.


14. L'Heure Bleue L’Heure Bleue~ルール・ブルー~ [050128] F&C HARDCOVER
Main character appears before  sisters with wounds on his back and head that result in memory loss.
He is received warmly in the mansion, and life goes on normally. That is, until the day when dreadful memories start to  recover...
Experimental brand tries to use zapping system here, but it's just to extend the story by showing the same events from the different point of view. The content is pretty dark and has to do with insults and witchcraft. It's the story about relations of four people, and actually two boys have their own share of it as well. A very strange game, to tell the truth.


15. Limit ~Kyoukaisen~ Limit ~境界線~ [050128] Innocence
Main character gets in a traffic accident together with his sister and lover. He regains consciousness at a hospital. Ayaka regains consciousness in two days, but it turns out that she acquires personality of his sister still lying in coma... 
This way their unusual life begins.
The concept is not fresh, but provides ample opportunities for scenario writer. There's only one main route while the rest are just side bonus. Alas, the depiction feels poorly done, and ending does not feel harmonious.


16. Maroon Grace マロングラッセ [050128] DUEE
Main character is adopted by Kurihara family at a young age after parents loss. He lives happily with a new uncle and two sisters-in-law. But he starts to get worried about his future. Should he leave this family already? Or should he stay? And if he stays - should he seek love with one of the sisters?
Kansai dialect is rare to see, so can be enjoyed here. Characters have bright memorable personalities. Game has both slapstick comedy and human drama in it. Heroines change greatly from one route to another. Each route is short and only takes some 4-5 hours.


17. Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru 処女はお姉さまに恋してる [050128] Caramel Box 1 2 3 4 5 6
One day, the heir to the prosperous Kaburagi Corporation, a soft-spoken yet cultured young man, received a visit from his family lawyer. He came to pass on the final wish of the boy's late grandfather: that he attend an all-girls school!
With his childhood friend Mariya - a talented fashionista - to help him with the "transition," Mizuho enrolls in his new school. It's not long before a series of strange misunderstandings leads to him being elected the school's "Elder Sister," the idol of the entire student body!
It's one wild event after another at this all-girls charm school! Can Mizuho make it through the year with his identity - and his dignity - intact?
Game is localized and has English reviews.


18. Tenshi no Nichou Kenjuu -Angelos Armas- 天使ノ二挺拳銃 -Angelos Armas- [050128] Nitroplus
When people die with hearts filled with negative feelings, they turn into 'ghosts', haunting the world. To send those souls to the other world, angels exist, using their guns to 'kill' them. You're playing one of such angels, Wim.
I'm surprised that a Nitroplus game does not have an English review. Guess I'll be the first.


19. Toki no Kairou 時の回廊 [050128] White Cyc
Main heroine Izumi is an ordinary student. But peaceful daily life starts to crumple with the visit of a boy in school uniform. Brutal murders and signs of supernatural forces pierce the reality. At the same time the story of girl Saya begins. She is saved from death by a man, so she fulfills missions for him now with the current one being watching after Izumi.  She witnesses human sacrifice ritual to resurrect the evil god. She has only five days to find the key point of the ritual and prevent it from happening.
This brand is an alternative to Black Cyc that produces too dark and disgusting nukige. It's a zapping adventure this time. The darkness is still there, but it just does not limit to sex. Instead there is emphasis on guro. There's so many violent scenes here that it gets uncomfortable to read. The story ends with no sense of accomplishment. In that sense it's closer to utsuge.

Year 2004 pleasantly surprised me with the number and especially quality of visual novels.

New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2004 with songs.

My list of masterpieces in 2004:
  1. 3days ~Michiteyuku Toki no Kanata de~
  2. Akai Ito
  3. Carnival 
  4. Dear My Friend
  5. Eigou Kaiki
  6. Fate/Stay Night
  7. Forest
  8. Paradise Lost
  9. Peace@Pieces
  10. Realize

  14. Symphonic Rain 
  15. To Heart 2
  16. Uminomichi 

I rate only Paradise Lost and Realize as 10/10, but the latter one has technical problems with voiced console release, so technical victory is with Paradise Lost.

Again I ask you to choose one of five visual novels for video and review among the following candidates that I consider curious enough:

  1. 3days ~Michiteyuku Toki no Kanata de~
  2. Abandoner - The Severed Dreams

Game type: Cliche chunige

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 6/10

Story rating: 7/10

Game quality: 7/10

Overall rating: 7/10


Well, no mood for structured review, so let's keep it in the flow of thoughts style. First of all, game kind of disappointed me for how cliche it is. Let's just numerate some of them. School student protagonist. Life in adopted family. Mysterious murders happening to the people he contacted last. Descendants of secret sword clans. Wonder waffle he suddenly discovers, and with such power that it can easily destroy the world. Time loop. Just really - what wicked number of stamps. But in game's defense I should add that no game before actually had such distinct and full number of a classic chunige features. So I guess I'll use Eigou Kaiki as a paragon of chunige till the time I find something even more sickly.


We're not done with the negative part yet. There are five heroine routes in the game which are set in predetermined order. And heroines are actually quite shallow here. Childhood friend Izumi at least has much time to shine, so she's probably the most memorable one. Older sister Yuuri is cool, because she knows the most about the clan secrets, but she still does not live up even to Chizuru from Kizuato. Sleeping in coma Hinano route is the worst as poor girl only has time to sleep in coma or have sex, pretty much nothing else. Fourth route is partly intriguing, because Elfriede is actually our antagonist. Fifth heroine Yun is the True heroine that makes separate routes a united story, but she has a small yet important role to play, actually. Journalist Takami was probably the most intriguing heroine, but she did not get her own route. As a raw outcome, only Izumi is a likeable heroine, especially in her interaction with Tadashi classmate. Basically, there is no fighting heroine apart of antagonistic Elfriede. That was a pity for me. At least there was enough gore, partly due to the reason there are no other heroines able to defend themselves.


All right, lets finish with negative sides already. I still consider this game a small and shaky, but masterpiece. It has enough action scenes and small revelations to keep interest. Different heroines' view is refreshing. The true route sums things up neatly. Game could be even better with some surprise element or more developed heroines. Eigou Kaiki can be roughly translated as eternal regression. I'm glad this concept is explained, but it turns just moving backwards in time, nothing big. I enjoyed this game for the whole first route, but not further due to repeatability. Not sure I'll be as generous to generic chunige in future, though.



I believe it's the first time when the number of games in one month exceeds a hundred - 108, to be more precise! And this month can boast of multiple masterpieces - Eigou Kaiki , Sorairo no Shizuku , Peace@Pieces and To Heart 2 . Can't say I'm excited about plotge of the month, so I'm giving the first prize to To Heart 2.

1. D -> A: White [041202] Tonkin House 1
Taking place two months after the events of D→A:BLACK, the player once again takes control of Tōya Shinjō, a "Shinigami" who works together with the angel Yuriel Arlencloyn to guide lost souls called "Creeps" that are lingering in the human realm.
Direct sequel is more interesting gameplay-wise and story-wise, but battles are still not user-friendly. Since battles need to be repeated in future playthroughs, there's little incentive to go on. Branching is super difficult to understand for those who are not familiar with the prequel. Ending conditions are super strict, so just one innocent miss in option can ruin it all. Story is much longer, but only extensively by adding material, not depth.



2. Mahou wa Ameiro? 魔法はあめいろ? [041203] Sirius
Sakutaro, a practice teacher, has a special power. One day, he meets three girls by chance. He knows two of them, but he doesn't know the third one. She suddenly says to him, "Please teach me how to use magic!"
Ordinary moege, as you might have guessed. There is magic, but it only contributes to the setting and entourage. Only sympathy for some heroine can drive to go on after seeing main heroine's route.


3. Futakoi 双恋 [041209] MediaWorks 1
The story begins with Nozomu Futami returning to the town where he was born and raised as a child. He moves in near a shrine which houses a legendary stone that was rumoured to have been the place where twin girls turned into birds. The stone is rumoured to be the cause of an abundance of twin girls who are born in the town. The twins who turned into birds did so because of their love for a man who couldn't choose between them. Shortly after Nozomu enters town he begins to run into the same problems as six pairs of twins fight for his love.
We've already seen Sister Princess 1 and 2 from this company. What can be better than Sister Princess? Twin sisters! Same silly in its absurdity concept. Everyone sticks to the protagonist from the start. I'm just afraid my jaw can go numb from all this sickly sweetness.


4. Sweet and Sweet [041210] Black Package
Main wants to enter a university and become a teacher. He is not sure in his career choice, so he decides to become a tutor for his childhood friend first. In the library he meets a girl standing away from her friends...
Game is neither about scenario, nor it has any charming heroines. That's what happens when nukige producer decides to make something different for a change. Nothing good happens. 


5. Tetsuwan Gacchu! 鉄腕がっちゅ! [041210] Studio Miris
Akemi, Marika and Meimei were live on local radio station as usual when their director assassination occurred. After that the ultimate battle started between contestants to determine the personality of the "new Gachumi".
It's a gameplay oriented game first of all, so need to like gameplay.


6. White Diamond 2 [041215] SystemSoft Alpha
Main character Alberto is the son of the lord in a medieval city Ruenburg. He returns home after studying abroad and finds his native home devastated by monster raids. He learns about the "White Diamond" legend that can help to defeat the monsters and sets on a journey.
It's TRPG first of all, so not sure that it belongs to the visual novel tribe just like as its predecessor. Battle parts is simpler than usual. There are a lot of sub quests devoted to different heroines. There is time limit that really get on one's nerves at times. Any heroine with the highest favorability at the moment of revealing mystery o f White Diamond gets her ending.


7. Eigou Kaiki 永劫回帰 [041217] D.O.
Katsuragi Tetsuo, the protagonist, is a highschool student who lives with his older sister Yuri.
Yuri, having originally lived in a foreign country, is a mainstay of the family and make a living by the work of translation at home. 
They have a bedridden sister with no consciousness too. The doctor don't know what's the disease what makes her to stay lying in bed as a beautiful doll. 
Tetsuo have two good friends too, Izumi, his neighbor and childhood friend, and the good-hearted nerd, Seiji. The three had always live in harmony.
The story begins in the town where they live, where bizarre events start to occur. Mutilation murders, cases where someone is killed with a huge blade, are happening. 
Tetsuo thinks himself to be irrelevant to these cases. However, anxiety rising slightly, Yuri starts to be worried about the hero.
Wow, hard-boiled adventure + D.O. + Watanabe scenario + no reviews sounds so good that I can't believe my eyes. Review is a must have here!


8. El Mayflower エルメイフラワー [041217] Alice Soft
The country is under strict control with secret police sniffing around everywhere. All culture activities are forbidden and offenders thrown to prison. One day touch female inspector crashes in youth's place to crack him down. However, she still remains human traits, so the youth starts to get gradually attracted to her.
It's free Alice Soft game and contains only two routes - pure love and mystery ones. Play time is only two hours.


9. Hatenaki Sora はてなきそら [041217] Ankh
Main character is a new doctor. He starts to ask himself what's the true mission of the doctor and struggles to find the answers. However, he soon faces a new test... a girl with intractable disease.
Ankh has a reputation of semi-nukige maker. Unfortunately, this work follows the trend. All kind of nurses, patients and patients' relatives can be captured. But the saddest part is that main heroine route does not really stand out here. Second half has serious development, but not even close to Kana imouto level


10. Shimaima しまいま [041217] Alice Soft 1
Unbeknownst to humans of the world, two succubus siblings live a peaceful existence in Japan. Their lives are forever changed after a fateful encounter with Yuuki Asuma, a uniquely gifted individual who immediately captures the sisters’ hearts and subsequently guides their uncertain future.

As time passes protagonist gradually recovers from the shock. He starts to get interested in the new female transfer student. At the same time mysterious events begin to occur around him... 
First lap is reserved for sister-in-law, then for mysterious transfer student, and finally for the even more mysterious homeless person. The contents is juvenile superpower sci-fi battle. It can also be described as a light moege. Volume is a bit small.

17. Juujigen Rippoutai Cipher ~Aoki Tsuki no Suitei~ 十次元立方体サイファー~蒼き月の水底~ [041224] Abel Software
You and other people are part of some study, and you all have to live in a dark two-story mansion with all the windows shut closed with wooden planks.
Abel Software got turned on detective mystery stories. We get a full-scale investigation game with point and click mechanics and collecting and using items. The red route actually has the Kanno genius touch, but the Blue route is much more disappointing even though it deals more with hidden items and lines. It's not really close to EVE series mystery still.

However, the tranquility abruptly ends after the annual Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro-sama. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the day of the Watanagashi Festival.

My dad was getting old, so I suppose I should have expected him to eventually collapse like he did the other day. His beloved cafe wouldn't stand his absence while he recovered in bed, though, so I knew my duty - I gave notice at the office job I'd worked since graduating college, and entered the whole new world of cafe management! Cocoa, a girl who worked here part time in the past, has helped me out a lot by coming back to her waitress job while I learn the ropes. We were still just scraping by, until one day my former co-worker Mitsuki stopped by with an offer to work part-time at the cafe as well! Cocoa wasn't too happy, but we needed the help, so I gladly accepted. Little did I know that she wouldn't be the last busty beauty vying for my attention - and that of the customers!
Before I knew it, I found myself surrounded by four of the women most important to me in my life. It's wonderful to have them here, and without their help the cafe would be in shambles - but I could do without the stress caused by dealing with the four of them at once! I'm just lucky they're more than willing to help me relax at the end of a hard day's work...

Foreword: Game interested me with its concept of parallel universe.

Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1sFJZ_BWLw&list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv_VZRGzArVahzwnVXBEy7Gu


Synopsis: Main character starts to date his classmate Miho with the mediation of childhood friend Sayaka. Miho often looks at the sky and prays to it as if in ritual. After the first real date Miho disappears, and another girl Misa with the same surname takes her place. Misa claims that Miho died in a traffic accident while they were children. In this world only protagonist, Sayak and friend Yuki remember grown-up Miho. Is it possible to return to the original world with Miho alive?

Game type: Parallel dimension youth drama

Character Design rating: 5/10

Protagonist rating: 5/10

Story rating: 6/10

Game quality: 6/10

Overall rating: 6/10


What surprised me in this game is how different it is from rival charage. It has a strong concept. It has interacting between themselves characters. It's NOT centered around love. Those aspects should be enough to feel the difference. After Miho route I was even going to give this game a masterpiece status. Alas, I got disappointed later on.

Miho is our usual naive and somewhat shy heroine. You probably know by now that I can't stand such heroines, but this time there's a lot of freshness in the heroine, because... she only appears in the first quarter of the game! She's rather a concept than a real heroine - something bright to get to. Her absence is the source of so many novelties  numerated.

Misa on the other hand is kind of genki underage heroine. She's cute and cheerful, so she does not irritate. At the same time game brings a revolutionary change for the heroine concept - Misa has NO H event. It's absolutely unthinkable for the modern game. How can everyone have H scenes and one heroine be spared of it?


Sayaka is our bitchy childhood friend. Her image suits this role very poorly, but I admit she managed to produce a significant impression on me with her story and personality.

Ano Sora no Mukougawa is not about love - it's about guilt. No, really. Miho has guilt before her dead sister Misa. Protagonist has guilt before the girls that he needs to "erase". Sayaka is just a single complex of reflexing nerves. But main character's drama is at the center of the narration. He needs to choose - he either kills his lover Miho or he kills her sister Misa and also absolutely innocent bypasser girl Madoka. The torments of hesitation overwhelm the three friends including Sayaka and Yuki. But what was most disappointing for me - is how this conflict is settled. In Miho route one day Miho comes in a vision and asks to bring her back, and it kinda gets decided. In Misa route protagonist just assures himself that Miho wanted Misa to live.


Misa route is an absolute twin of Miho route. What's only added is couple kiss and hug scenes. It's an absolutely worthless route that does not bring anything new to the scene at all. I wish I played Madoka route instead, but I had to cover both main heroines.

An interesting element to notice is Sayaka - Yuki relations. I really like it when main character's friend has his own love and development line. Basically Sayaka - Yuki pair is what kept me playing. There is another less interesting moment... it's that Yuki has his own Boys Love line... yuck.

Overall, Ano Sora no Mukougawa is notable mostly for the game concept. But I can't get rid of the idea that witch such scenario and such novelty features game could be presented in a much better way, with much more complex leads and conclusions. Pretty much any other popular company would make it better with the same material. What game has is honesty. But honesty does not sell well.



This month does not have masterpieces. I did not like the game and the anime, but there's nothing to choose from this month, so ok, Planetarian ~Chiisana Hoshi no Yume~ will pass for now. I will review the game with an interesting concept - Ano Sora no Mukougawa

1. Love Songs ♪ ADV: Futaba Riho 19-sai ~Fuyu~ LoveSongs♪アドベンチャー 双葉理保19歳〜冬〜 [041103] HuneX
Riho graduates from high school and lives a life of a progressive girl paying enough attention both to love and work. Currently she is a radio star presenting consultation program. She is asked to give lectures at a high school. Her heartful story of tears and laughs begins.
A foolish and absolutely story-less game based just on the looks and bright package of cute Riho. I'd call it a fandisk, to be honest.


2. Mutsuboshi Kirari 六ツ星きらり [041105] Chise
An ancient town in the alternative modern Japan. 
Main character is a sophomore student dating a girl. Both of them join the famous astronomy department. Protagonist is fascinated with the mysterious female head of the club who organizes night star-gazing trips frequently. He decides to date both girls, because it's youth time when everything's possible
Every astronomy game feels weak unless it's masterfully done. And this particular game is mediocre at best, so overall impression is poor. There some slapstic, some drama, some cheating, but nothing really memorable. An average youth comedy.
