Abandoner - The Severed Dreams is the winner this month, but since it has a review I'm picking up more obscure Noel for review.

1. Konohana 4 ~Yami wo Harau Inori~ 此花4 ~闇を祓う祈り~ [040909] Vridge Inc. 1
721984-konohana-4-yami-o-harau-inori-playstation-2-screenshot-i-guess.jpg
Meguru Momoi and Miako Tachibana are back in their fourth murder-mystery adventure, along with Shinobu Sakurada. As they were taking a shinkansen (a bullet train) on their way to an excursion trip to Kyoto, they heard a scream only to stumble upon a murder scene.
Finally, the last Konohana. As usual, it's about solving a serial murder case with an option of having love ending under certain conditions.

 

2. Abandoner - The Severed Dreams [040917] Unknown 1
17392.jpg
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...
There is an English review.

 

3. Meimeimei! めいめいめい! [040917] LaLa
21190.jpg
A relative of yours died, and you inherit his countryside mansion/café, which are run by maids.
A typical moege. Nothing to add, really.

 

4. Sakura Taisen V Episode 0 ~Kouya no Samurai Musume~ サクラ大戦V EPISODE0 ~荒野のサムライ娘~ [040922] Sega
8tnu01000002agri.jpg
Sakura Taisen V: Episode 0 (STV-0) is a prelude to the full sequel, "Sakura Taisen V: Farewell My Love" (Episode 1). In STV-0, you take the role of Texan cowgirl Gemini Sunrise as she rides her horse Rally across the American mainland from San Francisco to Washington DC. Along the way, Gemini defeats a legion of half-demon, half-robot "Japhkiel" from the evil sorcerer Patrick Hamilton, while protecting the targeted innocent girl Fuanita Cushing. Hamilton previously appeared as a henchman of the president of the Douglas Stewart company in the anime "Sakura Taisen: The Movie"
New characters, U.S. territory and action battle scenes mark the reload of the series.

 

5. Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku 碇シンジ育成計画 [040924] Gainax 1 2 3 4
Shinji-Ikari-Raising-Project-Evangelion-Visual-Novel-Sim-Gainax-September-2004-35.jpg
The player assumes control of Shinji Ikari, the protagonist and main character of the normal Neon Genesis Evangelion series, in the expanded alternate universe that was glimpsed upon for a few moments in the TV episode 26. Basically, the player decides Shinji's fate in how he lives his life.
Play proceeds in three major ways: The weekly schedule, battle, and dialogue choices. The player chooses Shinji's schedule for each week,what Shinji does influences his statistics. Battle controls are menu-driven and the outcome is determined partly by statistics and partly by luck. At various points Shinji will be asked to make choices during dialogue which can have far-reaching influence on the story.
Game is localized and has English reviews

 

6. Noel [040924] FlyingShine
14724.jpg
Emanon, an organization run by special military forces. The protagonist is their top soldier, nicknamed the God of Death, her name is Noel. She is given a new mission, protecting a girl attending a prestigious academy for women while remaining undercover. To accomplish this, she infiltrates the school posing as a new student. 
The everyday part is presented as a comedy, and the battle is feminine and cool looking. Since it's the only plotge of the month without a review, I'm reviewing it myself.

 

7. North Wind [040924] DreamSoft
121897.jpg
The story takes place in a small town surrounded by the mountains where, every winter, a "Love Letter Festival" takes place. According to the legend, if you write a love letter to the one you love, and post it at the local shrine on the 26th of December, you will get to meet that person.
The protagonist, Makoto Akizuki, was born in that town and has been living in Tokyo for the last 3 years. He pays a yearly visit to his relatives, this time accompanied with his a junior at school, Hakana Fuyutsuta.
Game is virtually a single road story divided into three structural parts. Only main heroine matters in this game as side heroines get their stories scrapped and even H events omitted. Dream Soft is a spawn of F&C, and it steps on the same rakes. The scenario is really weak overall.

 

8. Princess Brave! ~Jantaku no Kishi~ プリンセスブレイブ! ~雀卓の騎士~ [040924] 130cm
20061001234839.jpg
One Year after the events of Princess Bride, graduation day closes on. Still none of the girls are chosen to be a princess and they are desparete. 
One night suddenly black mists engulf the house amids a loud laughter and everyone finds themseves in a magical world. Strange people appear clad in black and our hero gets turned into a dog. Whats is going on? What do you mean the only way to set things back to normal is to win this mahjong game?
A strange and magical adventure begins...
Moege sequel, now with such fun thing as mahjong!

 

9. Shinju no Yakata 神樹の館 [040924] Meteor 1 2
81535.jpg
A successful university student on seasonal break, Kugetsu Akinari decided to take time off studying, by planning a trip through the countryside to relieve educational stress. With his best friend tagging along, he looked forward to having fun and passing time without worry, readying himself for the next challenging semester with a relaxed mind. However destiny has other designs for Kugetsu, and after taking refuge from a terrible storm within a frightening manor, the future five beautiful women are placed in his hands. Yet the more aware and sympathetic he grows to their plights, the greater his own troubles and less certain future become.
There are English reviews.

 

10. Tender Breeze [040924] O-DiN
60683.jpg
Main character reunites with his former lover Kotomi after a gap of four years. But she is now his brothers's fiance! In order to forget about Kotomi, protagonist tries to pursue romantic relations either with his childhood friend or part-time job colleague. Who will be at his side by the end of the summer?
Heroines are well composed, but with zero scenario and 70% HCG rate game has a distinctive turn towards moege.

 

11. Tomodachi Ijou Koibito Miman 友達以上恋人未満 [040924] Studio Mebius
80023.jpg
Shohei took a trip to Ryuujin-mura to heal his broken heart. He visited a historic shrine and freed a spirit who was sealed in a pot. She was Kukuri, a spirit who brought love to lonely people. The shrine’s miko Meiko makes him take responsibility for releasing Kukuri and the town is locked down, so he couldn’t return home. Will he be able to settle Kukuri’s disturbance and be freed from Meiko and return home?
I can't take this game seriously after it brought so many characters from its previous game SNOW (which was kinda meh). The stupid plot and parasitism over prequel commercial success make prevent me from even trying to evaluate this game.

 

12. Love Songs♪ADV: Futaba Riho 14-sai ~Natsu~ LoveSongs♪アドベンチャー 双葉理保14歳〜夏〜 [040930] HuneX
841517-love-songs-adv-futaba-riho-14-sai-natsu-playstation-2-screenshot.jpg
Riho has been active in the entertainment industry since she was only 4 years old, but after being involved in an unfortunate kidnapping incident, she retired from the entertainment world and went to live in a small rural town in the island of Kyushu. The player takes a role of a rookie manager working at a talent scouting agency, looking for the next new talent. While there are many girls you will interact with, the focus of the story will be Riho once you get to meet her. However, persuading her to return to the entertainment scene might prove difficult due to her traumatic experience she has undergone as a child.
Beating around the bush and sober plot make this game really boring. None of heroines is really charming enough.

 

13. W Wish [040930] Princess Soft
113875.jpg
Junna Tōno has a twin sister named Senna. He is an ordinary student at Sakurahama Private High School. However, in the past, a traffic accident deprived him of his parents and his memory. Junna survived the accident and since then, he lived only with his sister, though he's been looked after by his relatives.
His present life with Senna at the same high school is so pleasant that he can forget his severe past. However, Junna begins to recall the memories he lost in the accident. He enjoys the happy and pleasant days, but he is tossed by his past, his present, and his future. What is the truth hidden in his memory?
Game follows anime version for the most part, apart from additional endings. I'd advise to watch anime first and see if there's a will to see side stories.

Foreword: Well, I just liked the cover - looked like today's charming covers. 

Title: Koijibashi

Developer: Raccoon

Date: 2004-08-13

bandicam%2B2019-08-16%2B09-44-39-069.jpg

Synopsis: Yuta Tachibana was supposed to graduate this march, but he decided to do a graduation trip with his childhood friend instead. In their destination, they find Yuta's cousin waiting in a bridge rumored to bring fortune to lovers. What Yuta doesn't know is that even stranger things are waiting around the corner...

Game type: Mythological school trip

Character Design rating: 5/10

Protagonist rating: 5/10

Story rating: 6/10

Game quality: 5/10

Overall rating: 5/10

bandicam%2B2019-08-16%2B09-46-48-570.jpg

Rating comments: Game with 6 score would mean that it has some interest for me. But it does not. Despite the positive moments game can't offer anything to me.

Protagonist: Yuuta does not have a face and is our nobody. No point observing him, really.

Characters: There are as many as six heroines. All the heroines can be roughly divided in two categories - classmates on the school trip and heroines met at the place of destination. Hazuki, Mikoto and Nonoka are our classmates. All of them have pretty much the same flow boring routes with interesting spots only hinted at best. But the other category is much more curious. Karen is our weird half-Japanese who is of unique simpleton personality, but she can actually do miracles thanks to it. The way she handled main conflict of the game is just hilarious. Shiho is Yuuta's pervy cousin. She behaves as a horny OL, but she actually has the most interesting action and mythological scenes inside her route - very similar to Kizuato. Lastly there's one secret'ish heroine Makoto. And I basically can't say anything about her without spoilers. The only thing I'll mention is that she's only available after clearing Mikoto route while all the other heroines are available from the start.

bandicam%2B2019-08-16%2B09-45-16-343.jpg

Story: The weirdest part of it all. And weirdest it's because of the bridge that hardly really plays any role in the game. It's just a notorious place to visit. In some routes the final scene has something to do with the bridge, but it's pretty stupid to pull it out by the end while keeping in in shadow along the way. There's very little in the story department in the game. A group of five students (two of them are boys) go to a graduation trip to some onsen near some legendary bridge. Classmates heroines pretty much stop there and after some development have their boring ending. Non-classmates have more or less unique stories at the onsen site - well, memorable, at least.

bandicam%2B2019-08-16%2B09-45-29-504.jpg

Overall comments: Don't really want to take much time discussing Koijibashi. It's the debut work of Raccoon and thus with many flaws. Humor. Boy side character Ryuu. Heroine sprites and majority of CG. Everything is really mediocre. And that cute girl on the cover in reality is chaotic Nonoka with her hair being disturbed at all times. Game has no good story. There is no True route. The list of flaws is so big that I really struggle to find anything really worthy. Well, those action and mythology scenes were nice - but again - terribly short. The only route that stands out for me is Karen's. Her unique personality, development and some really nice CG might be enough reason to try to read her route. A pity that such brilliant cover can be totally misleading.

Sorauta is the only masterpiece of this Comiket month. Whenever I've no strong preference, I just choose something looking fine and without a review. This month I'm going to review Koijibashi .

1. Hayarigami: Keishichou Kaii Jiken File 流行り神 警視庁怪異事件ファイル [040805] Nippon Ichi 1 2
haya3.jpg
From chain mails that leads to murder, mysterious suicides and missing children, you, as a police officer have to put all your brain cells to work, connect the events together to discover the truth.
There are English reviews.

 

2. Ringetsu 燐月-リンゲツ- [040806] Selen
c51101table1.jpg
Long time ago, the Rindou family was cursed by a monster. Since then, new born babies have been girls. To break the curse, they had to marry girls of the Hizuki family who have strong spiritual power, and have to bear a child by the next red moon. Now, the curse befalls to Rindo Naoto. In order to break the curse, he has to beget a child with one of four sisters of the Hizuki.
It's a mix of romance and insult, plus the pregnancy fetish. Selen is known as 100% nukige producer, but I thought I need to bring their most popular game up, especially since synopsis is kind of neutral. There are four sisters available each having about 15 H events with main heroine over 30 ones. Moreover, all the H events are insult ones. There are six endings - each personal one, plus harem one, plus evil end.

 

3. Eien no Aselia Expansion -The Spirit of Eternity Sword- 永遠のアセリア Expansion —The Spirit of Eternity Sword— [040813] Xuse 1 2 3
ss-010.jpg
Eien no Aselia Expansion re-tells the last chapter of the original game with the choice of two new routes, providing endings for Tokimi and Kyouko that didn't have one in Eien no Aselia.
The game starts right away from the beginning of the chapter five and instead of the world strategy map stages there is a maze stage to be played.
The original game is not needed to play this fandisc.
Game is localized and has English reviews.

 

4. Koijibashi こいじばし [040813] Raccoon
c46781sample9.jpg
Yuta Tachibana was supposed to graduate this march, but he decided to do a graduation trip with his childhood friend instead. In their destination, they find Yuta's cousin waiting in a bridge rumoured to bring fortune to lovers. What Yuta doesn't know is that even stranger things are waiting around the corner...
Looks like a moege-ish game from a new brand, but I'm reviewing it myself to make things clear.

 

5. Mizu no Kakera ~Once Summer of Islet~ Origin みずのかけら-once summer of islet-ORIGIN [040813] Nico
c59121sample4.jpg
Main character is an ordinary boy who lives in Tokyo. On summer vacations he receives a letter from Itoko who he has not seen for a long time. He starts to hear girl's voice asking for help akin to hallucination. The letter calls him to visit the water god festival on the island...
Remake of 2002 year game with full voice.

 

6. Puni Puni☆Handmaid ぷにぷに☆はんどメイド [040813] Clover 1
74418.jpg
When three magical jewels mysterious fall from the sky, Earth is suddenly thrust into inter-dimensional affairs of the gravest importance, for these stones possess the power to transform anything they come in contact into humanoid creatures with sentience and superhuman powers. Thus begins an unforgettable adventure for a seemingly ordinary student, when three normal pets he has befriended, become beautiful women who seek to win his favor and heart. Where did these stones originate? Who seeks to claim them? Why? The answers will forever change this young man’s life, and those closest to him.
There is an English review.

 

7. Saishuu Shiken Kujira 最終試験くじら [040813] Circus 1
c34948table2.jpg
Like snow falling in summer, like a cicada lamenting the coming of winter...
In a town watched over by a whale in the sky... the extraordinary is made ordinary. Spectacles that could never be given form are instead given flesh and soul.
And in their midst, the story of a miracle that comes to pass in this town of miracles incarnate...
Welcome to the world of "Final Examination Kujira".
Flying whales conquer the world! 
Really, this game tries to be epic so much that it looks very funny and absurd. There is so much suspense set from the beginning, that the whole game is dedicated to explaining all this mess. It's all done to cover the unsatisfactory and weak scenario. Basically we gather three "keys" in normal scenarios in order to access the "final whale test".

Basically a very exciting work with a big center story gathered from multiple routes available from the start from different viewpoints. But length and ending spoils it all. Too many mysteries remain unsolved, so overall evaluation harmed. The depth of the story is thin. There is no impression of great work due lack of descriptions and some rushed scenes, but the christian world setting is unique and has its charm.

Set in the year LP0004, Rance and Sill travel to the Magic Kingdom of Zeth because they ran out of money once more. However, after offending a high-ranked minister and magic user named Radon, Rance is ironically thrown into the slave camp while his magic-using slave Sill is treated as a VIP.
Vowing vengeance, he eventually escapes with the help of an underground resistance group called Ice Flame. Currently Zeth is an extremely un-equal country, with magic users being the only real citizens and the non-magic users treated much like slaves with virtually no rights. Only groups like Ice Flame and the more violent and extreme group known as Pentagon, and perhaps the mysterious King of Zeth try to fight this cruel status quo.
Rance joins the group in order to get his revenge against the mages of the government of Zeth, and be reunited with Sill "while he's at it".

Until today.
Chasing an unimaginably fierce and vicious magical beast across time and space, the greatest of the bringers of justice and freedom to the galaxy, Ultra Mahou Shoujo Manana arrives in Earth, unfazed by the full military strength of the Secret United Earth Defense Force. Here she meets the ordinary Japanese teenager Shunichi, a young timid boy who is graphically crushed by the magical beast as it lands, his bright red blood and guts splattering across the road, the broken shards of his bones the only solid remains of what was left of this once bright and vivid young man.
But the Secret United Earth Defense Force is not feared across the planet as the mightiest military force known to man for nothing. Not to be thwarted so easily, they gather the full might of the combined human armies, destroying any who dare to defy their authority, and raise their banners and power up their giant death robots, ready to destroy these filthy alien scum once and for all. Will their forces be sufficient to overwhelm Manana’s full magical power? Will the magical beast bring death and destruction to the city? Will Shunichi finally confess to his one true love, the outgoing tomboy Anna? Only time would tell.

Synopsis: This light-hearted, high school eroge surrounds the exploits of a soon-to-be non-average student named Kyoichi Morikawa. The son of the odd paring of a nurse and a poorly-selling novelist, he’s been living his life in mind-numbing virtuosity. One auspicious day his father returns home after running errands with a girl (about Kyoichi’s age) claiming to be orphaned. Being the good Samaritan, our hero’s father adopts the hapless girl. Now Kyoichi must explain the extraordinary circumstances to his one and only friend. Furthermore, seeing the main character with a girl has caused several of the female student body to take notice of him...

Rating comments: I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the game. The two heroine routes I saw were unique and charming, protagonist contributed to gags a lot, and side characters really shined in here. A firm masterpiece, I say.

Protagonist: Kyouichi is not really our usual nobody. He has a face and a strong personality. He does not have piety towards girls and plays jokes on them a lot. He's almost as fun as Taichi from Cross†Channel, just less pervy.

bandicam%2B2019-08-09%2B17-18-15-221.jpg

Characters: There are five heroines. 

Kushiro Mai is our main heroine. And - according to To Heart tradition - the most boring one. She's blushing at every second line and is extremely shy overall. But even she has something fun about her - she leans to Kyouichi all the time despite the environment. That becomes the source of some nice joyful moments. She's the only naive heroine in the game.

Kurihara Tsukuyo is the second heroine that's available from the start. She's our traditional ojou-sama, polite and kind. It's good that she's serious and not naive, but all the other heroines look more interesting to me. 

Kitazawa Miyako is the last of three heroines available from the start. She's a genki heroine, but really intelligent at the same time, kind of Ayaka from To Heart. She would be my natural first choice if not for the other two heroines... 

Kurosaki Komugi is our crazy alien or so she's introduced in the game. The cute girl with bunny ears swears like a sailor and picks up on everyone. She makes every scene whirl around her. By To Heart analogy she's definitely Multi.

Nagamura Saeka is kind of joker of this game. She looks like a serious sempai, but she turns out to be of mischievous kind. Masada went a long way to invent all kinds of plot twists for her route. The one fact is that in her route Kyouichi dates.... drums-drums... Mai! And Saeka kind of tries to support them. Finishing with To Heart analogies, she's definitely Shiho.

bandicam%2B2019-08-09%2B17-19-04-895.jpg

Story: Don't think there is integral story. Mai just starts living in Kyouichi family and attending the same class. Game starts with the choice between heroines, but if we start following Mai route there's later branching to Komugi and Saeka routes. I especially want to take  notice of Kyouichi parents - they're marvelous and really funny. Guess now it's time say a few words about my attitude towards heroines. Both Komugi and Saeka routes were really good for the comedy part and quite good for the drama. Not really should game would make it to the masterpiece status for me without these two brilliant routes written by Masada.

Overall comments: I'll be brief since it's not a plotge. I never really cared for charage and grew a disgust towards the titles with great evaluation like Mashiro Iro Symphony or White Album 2 (I hope to bitch about it some day too). I got assured that I can appreciate a charage only in conjunction with some great story like in SubaHibi or Cross†Channel. So Dear My Friend really took me by surprise. There's no great depth or drama in here, but it's an absolutely enjoyable cozy read. And it's not all Masada's praise as Kyouichi's parents written by main author are equally enjoyable. Guess Dear My Friend produced a little revolution in me, and I've yet to know how to live with this thought.

There are no plotge this month. If I am to choose among charage and moege, I'd get one with good text. Dear My Friend is my choice for scenario written by Masada (for two heroines). And just by chance it's the only masterpiece of the month.

1. Dear My Friend [040709] light 1
789021-dear-my-friend-love-like-powdery-snow-playstation-2-screenshot.jpg
This light-hearted, high school eroge surrounds the exploits of a soon-to-be non-average student named Kyoichi Morikawa. The son of the odd paring of a nurse and a poorly-selling novelist, he’s been living his life in mind-numbing virtuosity. One auspicious day his father returns home after running errands with a girl (about Kyoichi’s age) claiming to be orphaned. Being the good Samaritan, our hero’s father adopts the hapless girl. Now Kyoichi must explain the extraordinary circumstances to his one and only friend. Furthermore, seeing the main character with a girl has caused several of the female student body to take notice of him...
It's a typical romance game without distinctive personality. But it's reported as a carefully depicted game with a solid scenario, so I hope to find it out myself while reviewing two character routes written by Masada.

 

2. Majiresu!! ~Omatase Little Wing~ まじれす!!~お待たせリトルウイング~ [040716] Studio Miris
72768.jpg
The World Family Restaraunt Association holds a  prestigious national tournament. 
Last tournament was won by protagonist's older brother who married the best waitress of the competition. One day older brother dies on his way back to Japan. His wife asks protagonist to take the lead, but this whole situation for him. But when team's coach collapses in the middle of the match even main character can't stay aside without giving a fight. He will take the challenge and become the best coach of all times!
There are so many comic moege, so let's introduce card battles to stand out. Not a good idea.

 

3. Brass Restoration ブラス・レストレイション [040721] Twincle Drop 1 2 3 4 5
887.jpg
The main character, Takiguchi Ryo, is a genius percussionist in high school who had a bright future ahead of him. But he loses his left arm in an accident.

Will he be able to find hope in his life and a passion for music in spite of his handicap...?
Game is localized and has English reviews even though it's a Doujin.

 

4. Haru no Ashioto はるのあしおと [040723] minori 1
35112.jpg
The game is set in a small town in the fictional Mefukino, Japan, to which the protagonist returns after his experiences in Tokyo. Story is about his experiences on the following days.
Coming of age work. General has many advantages as it's possible to depict friendship in a natural way and move at a slow pace. And game indeed takes it time. Overall it's a normal growing drama as kids hurt others and themselves. Scenario is good for this kind of game, but text itself and protagonist are lacking. Routes branch very early, so there is next to zero interaction between heroines. Nothing stands out, so there is no impact.

 

5. Heavenly Guilt -Kami no Inai Machi- Heavenly Guilt -神のいない街- [040723] Tenshindou
c46041table1.jpg
There is a bar in a lawless city.
Main character is a cleaner to do shady jobs. He meets an innocent girl by chance, and that pulls him in a whirlpool of desire, love and hate.
Unfortunately, story is too simple for a full-scale hard-boiled work. But it's dark enough to include all kind of abuse. Playtime for one route is just two hours.

 

6. Hinatabokko ひなたぼっこ [040723] Tarte 1 2 3
5822.jpg
Hayami Natsuki is an ordinary college student who lives with his sister. While searching for a part-time job he runs into (another) Natsuki, the manager of a popular coffee shop.

7. Hoshigari Empusa! ほしがりエンプーサ [040723] Takuyo 1
57752.jpg
Koutenrin School is famous as being an elite institute, and only elite and gifted students are allowed entrance. Therefore, having an effective leader of the student body who demonstrates the school's ideals of "friendship," "wisdom," and "supremacy" is a must.
The election for the position of the student body president is not an easy one; gaining status among the students and their praise is necessary, and a task that is not easy to do alone. A candidate is encouraged to find a "partner" with which to develop a deepening friendship, who is diligent in their studies and will stay by their candidate's side for support.
Every year when election time rolls around, those students that believe themselves to be the elite of the study body try to make their mark, and the competition for student body president is a heated one. Gaining popularity among the students, attending school events, and finding a supporting partner are all vital to gain success...
There is an English review.

 

8. Seigi no Mikata ~Tadaima Kigae Chuu!~ せいぎのみかた~ただいま着替え中!~ [040723] Panda House
c52541table1.jpg
Main character works as social studies teacher. He has amnesia and only remembers last three years of his life from the moment of lying on operation table in evil organization headquarters. He was implanted a compact bomb into his head during that time to force cooperation. 
There is a self-proclaimed female organization of justice "Astrea" at school. It's only a matter of time when two organizations clash.
Game is pretty funny as evil organization is rather mischievous than evil and justice organization is informal and doing nothing but organizing patrols. Main character is also a good man trying to change evil organization from inside. It does not make this game less fanservice with all the cosplay, though.

 

9. White Breath ~With Faint Hope~ ホワイトブレス ~with faint hope~ [040723] F&C FC02 1
24621.jpg
Tsukasa is in his second year of high school, and is an ace striker for the soccer club. He enjoys his school life with his friends, and hopes it will never end. But one day, he is struck down by incurable illness, and a doctor tells him that his life might not last until the graduation day....
F&C is only good for graphics. So White Breath is an example of an F&C game with even graphics being ugly - worthless. SOL uneventful life kills the fun, and all heroines have the same boring development about solving some problem.

 

10. Tantei Jinguuji Saburou Series No.04: Toki no Sugiyuku Mama ni 探偵 神宮寺三郎 Series No.04 時の過ぎゆくままに [040728] WorkJam 1 2 3
jinguji-poe_02_cs1w1_400x.jpg
As Jake meets up with his friend Scott Kingsley, he starts to reminisce a case from a year ago when he was asked to investigate a burglary of a mansion. During that time, Yulia finds a young boy who is searching for his mother. Little do they know that these two incidents are related to each other. 
There are English reviews.

 

11. F Fanatic F ~ファナティック~ [040729] Princess Soft
c52481sample3.jpg
Horror suspense adventure game, set in 19th century London, England. Players take on the role of newspaper journalist William Doustin. Will is on the trail of a killer who is offing young ladies in the dark, foggy streets of England's metropolis -- a case emerges that resembles the infamous Jack the Ripper mystery to a tee. When Will meets such famous literary characters as Doctor Van Helsing and Dr. Moureau, it becomes clear that the supernatural has something to do with the goings-on. The game utilizes simple adventure game multi-choice navigation and conversation systems and features anime-style graphics that seem to belie its somber themes. 
Story is quite solid as there are multiple deaths on our way to finding the murderer. The actual story is about trying to prevent murders and getting the same miserable results. There is a True route to try and actually fix things. The repeated grim development leaves quite a dark impression, but it's a good alternative to nakige and utsuge.

 

12. Kaiketsu! Osabakiina 解決!オサバキーナ [040729] KID 1
blog_import_4e4f58da25920.jpg
Osabakiina is a character from Japanese radio drama. You play as a newbie manager whose goal is to make Osabakina into a big idol. Game features interactive dialogue sequences where selection determines further development. 
Wow, developing a game for oneself to voice looks kinda selfish. Quite a lively game full of gags. The content is messy and main decision is done on day 7. It's a cheap small game fully cleared in less than 10 hours.

 

13. Americano, Please! アメリカーノ、プリーズ! [040730] Actress
c65401table1.jpg
Main character helps around coffee shop where his sister works. The cafe becomes popular, and he explores opportunity to work there full-time after graduation. One day he learns that his sister considers an invitation to take the manager position in the different prefecture thus breaking them apart...
Story is too bad and short here. It's basically a common week, then a date in the amusement park. The flow is the same for all the heroines. That basically strips heroines off their personality, because it's just work-work-work-date.

 

14. Izumo 2 [040730] Studio e.go! 1
389413-izumo-2-windows-screenshot-random-battle.png
Yagi Takeru is a student who goes to Izumo Academy. He has no family but he spends his days with his friends like Yamato Takeshi who is his bestfriend aswell as his rival in kendo, Shiratori Kotono and her sister, Asuka.
One day, an abrupt earthquake changed the school completely. The teachers and the students disappeared and the school was infested with monsters. Takeru managed to escape from the school, but he found all his friends and even his town were gone. Then suddently people wearing odd uniforms appeared.
Compared to prequel there is no story sequences about major characters this time, so heroines feel thin and story the same for everyone. RPG part is good, but limited to dungeons which is kind of lonely landscape.

 

15. Lamune ラムネ [040730] NekoNeko Soft
37055.jpg
Summer nears, with the protagonist Tomosaka Kenji continuing to attend the local high school. 
"Won't something finally happen this year", 
he thinks while feeling a somewhat throbbing sensation. At the same time a strange uneasiness grabs hold of him as summer vacation starts....
The various heroines he comes in contact with include his clumsy childhood friend Konoe Nanami, his energetic cousin Nakazato Hikari, his bright and honest little sister Suzuka and the earnest and duty-bound Isawa Tae-senpai.
There's no solid story, no special tilts, nothing to empathize ... so overall impression is weak. Game basically repeats Mizuiro structure - starts from childhood, we get to make a choice about heroine, then moves to modern time. Just one heroine stands out - the others get a really similar treatment.

Drifting aimlessly from place to place, almost destitute, Ryouta is forced to seek refuge for the night in the gymnastics warehouse ("taiiku souko" in japanese) of an abandoned school somewhere in the countryside.
Unfortunately, the following morning he's discovered by Rikka and Miko, two little (but 18 years old of course, heh... ) girls who are using that same warehouse as a sort of secret room for their summer homework and other childi... , err "girly" activities.
Not wanting to expose himself to the authorities, Ryouta tries and succeeds in befriending both girls, but VERY soon the presence of the cute lolis combined with an unfortunate accident cause the unthinkable: Ryouta's most precious treasure resurrects to new life, and the two girls are conveniently close at hand.

Synopsis: Just off the coast of mainland Japan is the island of Chisakura, home to a city of the same name, where the heralds of darkness are slowly gathering. Host to a prosperous economy, with a nationally renowned academic institution for young women and an equally upstanding medical research facility, the community has unwittingly attracted the attentions of dreaded supernatural creatures with few equals: vampires. Yet even these immortal predators have daring individuals who hunt them, and a secret war between the two powers is quickly racing to an apocalyptic conclusion. At the center of this nightmarish struggle is a man who has the potential to tip the scales in favor of one side or the other. His choice of allies - the hunters, the vampires, or none at all - may very well determine the fate of humanity and the undead.

Since there are other reviews, just some personal impressions are enough. NO. This game is NOT a masterpiece. It was a huge mistake on my part to even launch this game without checking it out properly. Let's try to observe some of its elements.

bandicam%2B2019-08-05%2B06-34-17-394.jpg

MinDeaD BlooD does have an ok story, but it's not a great one. The only "events" of the story is getting closer to different heroines and together triggering some kind of ending, often with action scenes. The "events" of bonding are dozens of H scenes with each heroine, over a hundred of events overall. Is there anything worthy about this game - action scenes / heroine stories / amnesia information recovery ? Nope. So why do all these people praise the story? Just one reason - because this game is a nukige. If nukige has some kind of plot involved, it's already treated as a great feat. And if there are complex routes and multiple different endings to contain mystery elements - it's fresh, it's new. Compared to Yami no Koe and Mushitsukai this game really has a good story. But compare it to any normal plotge - and MinDeaD BlooD becomes just an average nukige.

bandicam%2B2019-08-05%2B06-34-09-264.jpg

Game has over a hundred of H events, many have the same CG or slightly different CG. Those events are absolutely devaluated. They become mundane means of communication that repeat over and over during the 60 days course of the game. More than that, they are drawn in absolutely disgusting way, so it's no wonder reader gets an immunity over those and just skips them. When real heroines have their final bonding event, there's no emotion left for it, it gets skipped as well. Nukige nature of the game leaves a stamp of disgust on all its elements and really hinders evaluation of the story.

bandicam%2B2019-08-05%2B06-33-55-984.jpg

The only way to get game and story interesting is to introduce really interesting characters that start to live on their own creating meanings. I absolutely can't see serious heroines behind these chunks of meat. Protagonist Shizuru with his cool attitude is ok, but basically he is a serial rapist, and I don't have the slightest desire to get to know his psychology. 

bandicam%2B2019-08-05%2B06-31-50-753.jpg

Game composition is absolutely horrible. For each of 60 days we get to choose where to go both for Shizuru and vampire twins Mana and Mayu. It's absolutely impossible to do anything without a walkthrough here. Even with walkthrough it's very easy to screw something up. There are some 27 endings (don't cite me on that) with some 15 being named ones. But among those named ones most are still bad endings. Some endings only take couple minutes. Some are only accessible through normal mode (not easy mode) and only prior to clearing the rest of the endings. It's really a mess. There aren't heroine endings, just some named ones. Gameplay is such a torture. Hopefully, I covered all the big branches in my video. I really wanted to see all the meaningful branches to be able to evaluate the story properly, but this game does not care about readers at all.

bandicam%2B2019-08-05%2B06-33-20-207.jpg

In the raw outcome, MinDeaD BlooD can't be compared to normal plotge like 3days ~Michiteyuku Toki no Kanata de~. It has such gross nature, that it can be compared only to fellow nukige games, and these review scores of 7/10, 8/10, 9/10 should be treated as 7/10, 8/10, 9/10 among nukige games where having any kind of plot is already a boon. Vampire theme got a boost after Tsukihime, but none of the vampire visual novels were able come close to it. I call it Tsukihime curse.

3days ~Michiteyuku Toki no Kanata de~ is VN of the Month. I'm intrigued by positive reviews of MinDeaD BlooD ~Shihaisha no Tame no Kyoushikyoku~ . I'm going to review it and develop an  opinion on it.

1. Cosple Tea Party こすぷれ☆ティーパーティー [040604] Softhouse Dew
c24834table1.jpg
Main character gets drag, ged to an alumni assotiation meeting by his two friends who wish to temporarily revive high school cosplay club consisting of six pretty girls. Protagonist gets attracted by their charm, especially by "rabbit" girl Yuka.
A moege with dozens of spontaneous events rather than an integrative story.

 

2. Dice-ki! ~Koi wa Un Makase~ ダイス・き!~恋は運任せ~ [040604] Studio B-Room
87958.jpg
Main character advances to a new school and falls in love with a woman at first sight. However, childhood friend and classmates notice the change and are eager to change his view on women. Is love just a dice throw or it's possible to shake off annoying love candidates?
A really bad board SIM game.

 

3. Koyuki no Aka 小雪の朱-コユキノアカ- [040604] Discovery
c43340sample9.jpg
School is closed due to raging snowstorm. Main character manages to get there due to a promise given to his girlfriend. But weather deteriorates rapidly, and there is no way back anymore. A group of students and a teacher get trapped at this empty building in the sea of snow. There is not much to do, so students organize to pursue legendary school wonders. It's not mystery that they find, but something totally unexpected...
Love story in hindered conditions won't get old, not after those KID games. Transformation of characters is depicted well even though sometimes it feels that some text is missing to describe motivations - actions feel sudden at times. There is fantasy element, but it feels natural in the school wonders setting. It is a nice change from the usual school romance games.

 

4. Majipuri -Wonder Cradle- まじぷり -Wonder Cradle- [040604] Purple Software
c34281table2.jpg
One day, the protagonist Makoto Himekawa was going to his school, Shiroha Academy, when he came upon a girl going crazy by a vending machine. He went to help her, but ended up drenching her in soda instead. After a light argument, the protagonist christened this girl "Trouble Woman". Due to this he was late for school, and barely made it to homeroom. And there, it seemed that there was an exchange student. But that exchange student was ... the "Trouble Woman"!
Thus, with the appearance of the exchange student Yuuri Ashitaba, Makoto's ordinary school life took a sudden turn for the decidedly non-boring, and through the athletic festival, the cultural festival, and even the autumn leaf festival, the chaos of his life quickly increased. And then, he was swallowed up in an unexpected incident ... 
Kind of onii-chan game. Someone counted that onii-chan is pronounced 997 times here. Quality varies from one root to another. Game's definitely not for scenario-oriented people.

 

5. Natsu no Tomoshibi 夏の燈火 [040606] 1
4443.jpg
One day a young boy arrived at this village, holding a letter in one hand and his sister's hand in the other.
They had no place left to go but the address written in the letter he was holding. Since they traveled with one-way tickets, there was no way back.
In the end, they were accepted as a part of the family living at the address written in the message, and started their new life in the village.
A village full of spirits and protected by gods summoned into mirrors...
It's a doujin game, but since it's first Looseboy scenario I won't block it. It's a straight nakige with only two heroines for capture, about 6-7 hours per heroine. There is just one H event for each heroine. Game has to do with sickness and is not really interesting per se, especially with the rural monster introduction. But game text is really good. Only length actually reminds that it's still a doujin game.

 

6. MinDeaD BlooD ~Shihaisha no Tame no Kyoushikyoku~ MinDeaD BlooD ~支配者の為の狂死曲~ [040611] Black Cyc 1 2 3 4
14824.jpg

7. Oratorio ~Umi yori Aoi Natsu no Kanata de~ ORATORIO~海より青い夏の彼方で~ [040611] Unchain
oratrio02.jpg
Main character studies at geophysics faculty. He receives a report mentioning his native island being in danger of volcano eruption this summer. He arrives to his native town and meets a lot of relatives and childhood acquaintances there. Strangely, volcano shows no signs of activity yet besides slight shakes...
Game shines for its directorship and animation. Both protagonist and heroines are depicted very realistically, but there's not much in the story department, to be honest. There is unique charm and fresh ideas in this game which alone qualifies for a masterpiece.

 

8. Tantei Jinguuji Saburou Series No.03: Kiken na Futari 探偵 神宮寺三郎 Series No.03 危険な二人 [040623] WorkJam 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
002.jpg
Detective Hunter and his assistant Yulia have been invited to watch Yulia's friend Sabin participate in a motorcycle race. It doesn't all go too well when he crashes in the race, but when the racing team checks up on him it turns out to be Thomas, Sabin's apprentice, under the helmet. The mystery deepens as another friend of Yulia is found murdered in a hotel room.
There are English reviews.

 

9. DearS ディアーズ [040624] Vridge Inc. 1
117470.jpg
A visual novel based on the manga and anime series "DearS". A "game original" character, not seen in the manga or anime, makes an appearance.
Takeya Ikuhara is a temperamental seventeen-year-old Japanese student attending the fictitious Koharu High School with a strong prejudice against the DearS. Due to a childhood scare, he believes that the aliens are fake, worthless beings that have generated nationwide overhype and are secretly plotting to take control of Earth.
On his way home from school he discovers a homeless DearS who, after fainting and much to his annoyance, he feeds and shelters in his apartment. The girl, who he nicknames Ren, is infantile and friendly, and grows obsequious and dependent upon Takeya, a responsibility he tries to disassociate himself from. Her oblivious tenacity keeps her around, however, and over time, realizing Ren's genuine care and empathy for him, Takeya has a change of heart. Unfortunately, because Ren is deemed defective, DearS headquarters orders her arrested.
SIM games are just no go for me.

 

10. Memories Off ~Sorekara~ Memories Off ~それから~ [040624] KID 1 2 3
51980.jpg
Inori was looking forward to go to the annual Ashikajima Fireworks Display with Isshu this summer. They had made a promise to always go to the fireworks festival together, since that was the place that they orginally became a couple. But Isshu said he wouldn't able to go because of his part time job. That day would fall on their two year anniversary. Inori went alone to their memorable place, the church... and she began to recall the previous two years.

There are English reviews.

 

11. 3days ~Michiteyuku Toki no Kanata de~ 3days~満ちてゆく刻の彼方で~ [040625] Lass 1 2
558.jpg
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 senpai and also to find the identity of the murderer.
There is an English review.

 

12. Angel Egg [040625] You & I
c31283sample1.jpg
You're a high school student who's secretly an accomplished writer.
All the upperclassmen of the drama club suddenly decide to quit due to a conflict, and the remains of the club need to do a play for the upcoming school festival. You end up being responsible for the script.
Everything is painful about this game. Text depictions, boring characters, inconsistencies... It's a light work, but can't really be recommended.

 

13. Doko e Iku no, Ano Hi 何処へ行くの、あの日 [040625] Moonstone 1 2
24499.jpg
I killed a girl. Who was she...?
The protagonist, Kunimi Kyousuke can't remember the memories of his distant past. Even the details are vague, merely appearing as flashes in his heart.
"I am certainly the one who with this hand did that to the lone girl", he keeps thinking, but can't even remember the time or place it happened. But the memories are slowly entering his mind. He remembers the corpse...
How will Kyousuke deal with his supposed sin?
There are English reviews.

 

14. Innocence pain ~Michiru Yami Kakeru Tsuki~ Innocence pain~満ちる闇 欠ける月~ [040625] Ankh
c58401sample5.jpg
Main character is a new teacher at girls academy where witch legend is popular. He pays little attention to this story, but one day occult-looking events lead to student injury. Similar incidents continue while the culprit remains unknown. Protagonist starts his own investigation.
Game is described as a suspense story, but it's mostly normal SOL in girls school. There is very short story involved, so they have to pour lots of water and insert insult scenes at random. Game produces rather weak impression.

 

15. Miko-san Hosoude Hanjouki 巫女さん細腕繁盛記 [040625] Studio Ryokucha
c30250table2.jpg
Main character receives priest education and returns from Tokyo to his home town. But the local shrine
is on the verge of bankruptcy. Protagonist needs to work hard alongside cute shrine maidens and childhood friends. Who will be his girlfriend during the festival?
Light comedy game, but of mediocre quality. First half is somewhat saved by gags, but there is no charm of the heroines. The hinted conflict with the enemy has thin presence.

 

16. Night Wizard Mahou Taisen ~The Peace Plan to Save the World~ ナイトウィザード 魔法大戦~The Peace Plan to Save the World~ [040625] Rune
c42921table1.jpg
Peaceful school life is interrupted by a transfer student arrival. Newcomer vows to kill main character who has his abilities awakened shortly afterwards. With the power of science and magic protagonist needs to defeat demons and save the world in card battles.
You need only wins, so upon losing in battle game just restarts the card battle. World is based on tabletop RPG Night Wizard released in 2002, so is rather rich in detail. Each route takes some 10 hours, but it's impossible to skip battles, so it get bothersome from the second lap. Each heroine has two H events, plus there's a number of sub-heroines. There's nothing that stands out here.

 

17. Rakuen ~Ai Kawarazu na Boku no Baai~ らくえん~あいかわらずなぼく。の場合~ [040625] TerraLunar 1 2 3 4
20533.jpg
The player takes the role of a nameless protagonist that the script refers to as Boku. Boku is a ronin that moves to Tokyo in hopes of being able to study and prepare himself for the university entrance exams. His hobbies as an artist and the myriad of temptations of the big city have kind of caused him to waste his time away, playing games and watching anime instead of focusing on studying. His need for a job eventually landed him a job at MoonEarth, an eroge studio that at the time was needing a character designer. The studio's fate takes a turn for the worse when the scenario writer decides to entirely drop out just as the crew is producing their first title.
Seeing as the fledgeling studio is under a lot of scrutiny from its parent companies, this turn of events places MoonEarth in a very sticky situation. As such, the story focuses on MoonEarth's budget problems (the project director likes gambling budget money away by playing pachinko), scheduling issues (the lack of a scenario writer means EVERYTHING from character designs to CGs to BGMs and Voice Actor casting is delayed as well), and eventual crunch-time (since as of the game's start, MoonEarth has one month to create a game from scratch) as they trudge their way to releasing their first title, a game called Ai kawarazu na boku.
There are English reviews.

 

18. Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro そらのいろ、みずのいろ [040625] Ciel 1
33063.jpg
Asa & Natsume are both in love with Hajime Saisho. Instead of fighting over him, they both promised to share him equally. However, both girls have to leave him by the end of the summer. As the summer days go by, they each spend their precious time with Hajime, while the day of their fated departure draws near.
Game was in many people's wish-lists, but upon release it could not really boast something more than just another Tony's works graphics borderline nukige. It failed to please pure love fans because of its NTR tilt. It could not please nukige fans because of long exhausting monotonous routes without letting any steam out.

 

19. Suzukuri Dragon 巣作りドラゴン [040625] SofthouseChara 1 2 3 4
3532.jpg
The setting is Middle Ages Europe style.
A dragon male (the protagonist) must, in order to marry, amass a lot of treasures and wealth in his dungeon. For that reason, the protagonist went alone and lived in an area where human lives, constructed a huge nest and started amassing treasures. However, soon after the nest got built, gallant heroes wanting to exterminate dragons, townspeople that see the dragon as a nuisance and adventurers and thief out to get the dragon's treasure came.
With this, he couldn't gather treasures at ease. Therefore, the protagonist hired monsters, added traps and threatened the neighboring area to not approach his nest. With his nest's defense strengthened, the protagonist started amassing wealth. He searched for a gold mine all over the place, started farming, deforested the forest to build drawers out of it. Of course, the foolish invaders that's successfully repulsed are stripped of all their possessions. Incidentally the women are used as sparring partner to gain experience for the honeymoon.
Will he succeed in amassing treasures and marry his fiancée? Or would he meet some other woman...?

Until it happens again, that is: that troublesome Kouji, still madly in love with your female persona, secretly gets Asami-senpai to whip up some of the sex-change potion and tricks you into drinking it! It'll be harder than ever for you to change back into your male self this time, but you've got no choice: you have to find a way to return to normal before your female body becomes permanent.

bandicam%2B2019-07-28%2B21-03-10-039.jpg

I don't have much to say about this game. It struck me that I could find only ONE Japanese review of the game. Usually even nukige have at least couple. So game's really neglected for some reason. I was curious to know why.

From the very start game infodumps tons and tons of names. Each such name is underlined, so it's possible to point at it and read an extract regarding each. It's possible, but there's hardly any motivation to do so.

bandicam%2B2019-07-31%2B12-02-09-991.jpg

It strikes the eye that half of the girl characters are simplistic with some being totally ugly. But it only does so till you see the first male characters. 100% of them are ugly beyond redemption. Male characters usually move the story and contribute for the atmosphere of the game the most. Here male characters kill the game just from the start.

Talking about this compromised ugly game further on is difficult, but let's try to. There's no real story beyond the synopsis. Only pointless talks and some armed clashes clustered here and there make for the length. Baal only needs to get back to his mother castle and battle impostor with his minions. That's it. Whether he does it together with princess Mertina or wiithout determines two main branches. I only recorder the one available from the start - without Mertina in party - because game's horrible beyond redemption at that point already.

bandicam%2B2019-07-28%2B21-02-35-766.jpg

BGM actually contributes to the irritating factors as it's repetitive and quite simple. The gag BGM is a total sham. And "gags" here aren't any-what sophisticated, like Gills damaging her bra and having boobs out during the fight.

Overall, game produces only negative emotions. There are more  adequately drawn female characters from the second half of the game, but it's too little too late. Every element feels half-baked with the result leaving much to be desired.

Carnival is the VN of the month, but I already have review of it. I'm reviewing Dingir as the only plotge of the month.

1. Carnival [040514] FlyingShine 1 2 3 4
69.jpg
After being arrested for the murder of a fellow student, the protagonist escapes from custody when the police car he's in has an accident. Knowing he will one day be caught again, he decides to spend what little time he has in freedom to try and return a handkerchief.
There are English reviews.

 

2. Waitress Paradise ~Stay With Me~ ウェイトレスパラダイス~Stay with me~ [040514] light
89310.jpg
You've become the manager of a school club, which sends out waitresses to work at restaurants. Your job is to circle through the restaurants and check that the girls are doing all right.
Moege with abundance of heroines. Not smth that I expected from light after Kurenai and Paradise Lost, but - oh well - they need to pay their bills as well.

 

3. Ai no Maid Hotel Monogatari ~Itoshi no Sukumizu Maid~ 愛のメイドホテル物語~愛しのスク水・メイド~ [040521] Psycho
c34702table1.jpg
Main character is an accountant hired as a hotel manager. He has much to do since hotel is one the verge of bankruptcy.
Don't see a reason to discuss a moege.

 

4. Blaze of Destiny II -The Beginning of the Fate- [040521] Talisman 1
wal1.jpg
A sacred land where many mysteries sleep out of reach of major kingdoms... 
Leon is exiled by his brother and declared a criminal. He is chased by armed men, and he only gets saved thanks to Leiria girl.
A much more polished game, but without soul anymore.

 

5. Dingir DINGIR(ディンギル) [040521] Patisserie
bandicam%2B2019-07-28%2B21-02-05-021.jpg
Year 1014 by local calendar. 
Peaceful life is interrupted by betrayal and assassination in the court. Dying king conveys main character Baal the prophecy and asks him to try and save the endangered world. Girl As suddenly appears before Baal and agrees to help him on the journey to the Tower of Judgment. 
Ancient Mesopotamia world setting is not bad and really thorough, perhaps excessively so. We get forced into A route from the start, but B route with much more heroines and scenes is only available from second playthrough. It would shine as RPG, but as a NVL visual novel it's not something impressive story-wise.

 

6. Kokoro-chan no Himitsu Shinryou File こころちゃんの☆秘密診療ファイル [040521] Sweet Hearts
c41743table2.jpg
Main character gets hospitalized as a result of traffic incident on his first day in the university. He has both arms and legs injured. But there's a good point in it as well - nurses in this hospital are unbelievably cute!
Yet another Moege.

 

7. Lost Aya Sophia ロスト・アヤ・ソフィア [040527] Idea Factory Co., Ltd.
103_26733_02.jpg
Yuuji learns his soul has been possessed by the devil and investigates why.
Unfortunately, another weird and tiresome console exclusive continuing tradition of previous work "STEADY x STUDY". Right from the start we're asked 12 questions about main character, and those questions ARE important. Parameter called DP ( Dark Point ) is the most important. One readthrough time is just 2 hours, but with so many starting options it may require some 10 hours to read all the variants with all the constantly repeating scenes. There are 7 chapters... but only in chapter 1 characters are voiced - such a ripoff.

 

8. Ayameiro no Natsu あやめいろの夏 [040528] Runrun Soft
c43342sample8.jpg
A story based on real events.
On September 18, 1988, the mountain Yamatsu village located on the prefectural border between Iwate Prefecture and Akita Prefecture collapsed due to a large-scale earthquake. The rescue activity was significantly delayed because of a typhoon. As a result over 300 people were dead or missing.
Initially declared as an earthquake, the disaster did not involve somewhat strong earth shaking or land slides which posed a lot of questions.
Main character is the descendant of the Yamamori clan protecting the village since Heian times. This is a story of him returning to the village as an adult and experiencing this disaster that's implied to have absolutely different sources...
Deities and spirits are made responsible here. There are many heroines available through multiple routes, each having 1-4 H scenes. There are many inconsistencies. Scenario is not good enough having tilt on the not so lovable heroines.

 

9. Hanamaru! はなマルッ! [040528] TinkerBell
c39488sample6.jpg
Main character attends a special school deep in the mountains. There is no dormitory for boys there, so he has to board in women's dormitory. He's quite happy about living with cute sempai, but there is one serious problem - there is no men's bathroom! What's going to happen with his school life?
Tinkerbell makes a non-nukige AGAIN? I buried this company so many times already, and yet they are still eager to make moege from time to time. This one also tries to benefit from comedy. But scenario is heavy and crapy, as usual for this company. Needless to say that H element prevails.

 

10. Like Life [040528] Hooksoft
c40921package.jpg
Like Life's story revolves around Kazuma Kōsaka who had to move into his aunt's house due to his parents always being too busy. He lives next door to his childhood friend Yumi Miyasato, and the two of them walk together to Shitasōno Academy which they both attend. One day at school, many strange transfer students arrive at school: all over town, objects start turning into girls, though they still retain some form of what they used to be on their person. Kazuma's mobile phone is no exception and turns into a girl he names Himeko Kōsaka.
The best thing about Like Life is direction as there are so many screen changes happening. To get this tempo game advances almost ultimately through conversations. Heroines are unique and likable. There are some themes of objects having feelings and people handling things, but not too many. The problem is that no interesting concept is suggested to the reader leaving no room for becoming a masterpiece. It's a good light game, but that's it.

 

11. Mabuta Tojireba Soko ni... 瞼閉じればそこに… [040528] Lakshmi
c44102sample5.jpg
There are girls in this world with physical disabilities. They live lives full of hardship. Main character meets such a girl and gradually changes from life for himself towards life for another one.
It's hardly Katawa Shojo. Game is below mediocre in every field.

 

12. Mofu x Mokyu ~Goshujin-sama no Osewa Shimasu~ もふ×もきゅ~ご主人様のお世話します~ [040528] Witch
87987.jpg
Main character comes to Tokyo and manages to enter a university. His parents want to see him back, so they cut the funding. Protagonist is desperate to find a part time job when a girl in maid outfit jumps out before him. She calls him "master" and claims that she comes from future to take care of him.
Terminator maids only possible in Japan. Story is not even nearly good enough to save this Moege.

 

13. Mystereet ~Fukagyaku Sekai no Tantei Shinshi~ ミステリート~不可逆世界の探偵紳士~ [040528] 1
5657.jpg
Become Yasogami Kaoru, the youngest class A detective in IDLA, an international detective organization, and solve difficult cases that baffle veteran policemen. Although the game is split into episodes, the plot lines are interconnected and the web of relationships are so intricate that it is a real challenge to find the culprit and his or her motives.
The game is split into four episodes and a prologue. The prologue demonstrates the prowess of the youngest class A detective in action as he solves a murder case on a cruise ship. The main storyline starts at the first episode where Kaoru accepts a case from IDLA's Director Connor, to locate the legendary detective Agyou Sohma who disappeared. To solve the case, Kaoru masqueraded as a class D detective and entered Sohma's Shiawase Detective Agency. To make matters even more complicated, Shiawase Detective Agency has a accepted a case from a Mrs. Toudou to catch the mysterious thief Sapphire.
After solving Mrs. Toudou case, Kaoru, still in disguise, is given another case to solve in episode two, he is to find out the truth behind the mysterious fire that burnt people to death in the local church, and at the same time, figure out the cryptic message the pastor left before his own death. In episode three, Kaoru receives a challenge from another class A detective, to find out a murderer amongst five hypnotized persons.
The grand final of this game lies in the last episode. Class A detectives from all over the world are invited to Baron Kazamatsuri's deserted mansion to solve a foretold murder case. Sohma Agioh name is in the list and old foes like the mysterious bandit Sapphire shows up. Can Kaoru solve, or even prevent the murder case and find Agyou Sohma in this grand finale?
This is a sequel to Fukakutei Sekai no Tantei Shinshi. This time there is finally a full voice PC version, but detective stories is just not my thing.

 

14. Pure Pure ぴゅあぴゅあ [040528] Klein
c32982sample4.jpg
The story of Pure Pure revolves around a young groomer named Jun and his friends that are also involved in his work. The game begins with him training to pass the final examination for his vocational school and follows his day to day life with Hinata, Sachi and Midou. His only concern was passing that test until a tragedy shakes the foundation on which he built his life upon.
Story itself is interesting, but told poorly. The first four hours of prologue are great, but later on expectations get betrayed, and even climax is much worse than prologue. So it kind of falls into moege with cat ears and tails category.

 

15. Shamana Shamana ~Tsuki to Kokoro to Taiyou no Mahou~ シャマナシャマナ~月とこころと太陽の魔法~ [040528] Caramel Box 1
c43321sample9.jpg
In a town preserved by the Sun God, where humans and fairies coexist people are preparing for a festival, praying for rich harvest. Under the peaceful sun the whole town is getting excited. The preparation is finished and all people need to do is to wait for the day of the festival to arrive. Mildin, born as a son of the moon who left this town before because of what he had done, now returns on the day of the festival. His friends welcome him home, but it is not everyone who is happy to see him return...
Only two heroines fall under Lolicon category, so I'm inclined to let it pass. Game of a nice atmosphere. Having good friends really helps a lot. Each story is not just some heroine story, it's also the story of the past of protagonist and this land. However, there is no true route to bind all the pieces together or smth. Game takes some time to kick in, and overall lacks excitement.

 

16. Saki no Love Love Honeymoon 沙紀のらぶらぶはねむーん [040531] D.O.
37398.jpg
A sequel story from Snow Sakura (Yukizakura).
The story is about Yuuji and Saki's honeymoon vacation in the beach 6 months after they were officially engaged by their parents before Saki's ending in Snow Sakura (Yukizakura) in the summer holiday
Game has many gags and nostalgia moments. As a sequel to a non-masterpiece game, there's not much to talk about.

Rating comments: No words really needed here. I had my doubts whether it should be 9 or 10, but it continued to surprise me over and over taking all the doubts away.

Protagonist: Game has not one, but two protagonists - Ryou and Shuuji. And those two co-exist in the same space and time. They are good friends, actually. Their bonding is the cornerstone of the game. Having two protagonist is also a great way to get out of one boy - lots of girls dilemma in a long one road story. Both protagonists are strong personalities with different focus - realistic and idealistic. 

bandicam%2B2019-07-24%2B22-39-56-700.jpg

Characters: There are four heroines, and all are very nice ones. 

Kei is our more traditional love interest, kind and romantic. 

Rin is an attentive, polite and cheerful child that we want to protect. 

Yae is the cornerstone of the story and the most mysterious heroine. 

Saya is our tsundere with absolutely blunt attitude to everyone from the start and very charming awkward transformation. And she has the hugest sword - of course she's my favorite heroine!

bandicam%2B2019-07-24%2B22-41-22-508.jpg

Story: What I like the most in Realize is that game is not really that much about the story. There's no ultimate aim to reach like in most of chunige. Ryou just sees some robot familiar one day, then is summoned to the roof by his classmate Yae who shows him her familiar and answers some of urgent questions. That concludes the prologue. Later on he gets involved into the conflict between PK characters and some PKKs. This very fact already rose estimation level to the skies. Talking about PKs and PKKs 10 years prior to Sword Art Online! This was a moment of impact similar to that of Coμ when prestige traditional Wizardry classes Lord and Bishop entered the scene to compliment normal classes. I actually waited for ninja and samurai prestige classes to make them company, but - alas - those estimations were left without realization. What I want to say is that Realize has a lot of great Ego fights and all, but it's not the gist of the story. There are four endings in addition to the True ending. Half of those are kind of bad ones leaving us out without getting the needed power of losing allies. The other two are really nice and showing the game yet from more sides.

bandicam%2B2019-07-24%2B22-40-11-477.jpg

Thoughts:

1) Robot familiars are called either Ego or Proxy in the game. Try to google that and you'll get the title of the best anime in history.

2) There are too many similarities between Realize and Coμ. 

a) Both games are based on the conflict between the aggressive group of traditional PKs one one side and peacemakers PKKs on the other side.

b) The name of strongest PK is - guess what - Black Dragon.

c) Both games have a mysterious legendary fighting machine that acts by unknown principles with the identity remaining unknown 

d) Both games have to do with μ symbol. Realize even explains its meaning for the game.

e) Both have two males as part of the coalition band. I always considered Shuu to be and odd one out. Never could understand his role in Coμ. Now I tend to think that he's implemented under influence of two protagonists great bond in Realize.

One or two similarities is a coincidence, but FIVE ?! Now I look at Coμ at a completely different angle. It's a great standalone game, but it has ways to go to reach the bliss of its spiritual predecessor - Realize.

bandicam%2B2019-07-24%2B22-39-16-891.jpg

Technical difficulties: Of course there are some. Only PS2 release is voiced, so I had to take it as the base. But console releases are known for poor hooking capabilities, so I had to satisfy with only translation of the first line in each screen slide. There were rarely more than five lines on one screen, but it still hurts to see words cut in the mids.

Overall comments: It saddens me greatly to see such a superb game in oblivion. Realize is one of the very few games that I can enjoy at any moment, at any page without relation to the development of the plot. That's the biggest praise a piece of media can get from me (the paragon is Vladimir Nabokov novels). Realize is written by a mastodon veteran of scenario writing - Takahashi Tatsuya. It's the person responsible for a good half of Leaf biggest works. And we all know that Leaf is the biggest benefactor and driver of the media - the company that always brings innovation. Realize is his first work after leaving Leaf and starting to write what he desired himself. It's a piece of history that's unjustly forgotten.

Synopsis: The story takes place in 21st Century Japan (approximately at the end of April 2010). The main character Nasu Souichi is a perfectly ordinary high school student, who tries to do as little as possible everyday, and sleeps though most of his classes, only ever to be woken up by his friend Yuasa Satsuki. They believe they are living in a peaceful time, where no large wars are occurring.

However, these peaceful days are destroyed, when a number of large ships disappear at sea, almost instantly, and with no explanation as to why. A strange woman named Lisa=Vixen suddenly appears and attacks Souichi... however Souichi also has his share of secrets.

There is already a good review of this game (1), so I'd better present personal impressions acquired during the course of the game. There WILL be spoilers, although I don't consider them to be big enough to really spoil anything - they are needed to present the structure of the game.

Game starts with Lisa Vixen route, and she is the real main heroine of the game. She is both stunning blonde beauty and a great super-agent. There is great teamwork and unexpected resolution there. But unfortunately only this route really resembles spy thriller. Next four routes required to reach true route are less impressive. From second playthrough there is a hint about a strange medieval-looking man as well as two choices - whether to go to school or stay home. Going to school leads us to our osnajimi Yuasa Satsuki route or her best friend Fushi Yukari route. I decided only to play thoroughly through Satsuki route. There is an attempt to fill it with SOL and humor, but it works out so-so. The worst part of it was how it ended up being so much overextended. I was hoping to get a fast H event and move to story already, but this route had as many as three (!) unsuccessful attempts of etching pushing story further and further. In the end, story development stars without getting into intimacy stage, but ends up a degraded version of the same Lisa route, just without the unexpected twist.

bandicam%2B2019-07-19%2B08-37-25-060.jpg

The other three heroines routes are even worse, a total bore-fest. Two of them are just an average town girl and an average town lady with their stories having NOTHING to do with the spy theme. The true route is the shortcut of the same Lisa route AGAIN, just with all three main heroines at support - Satsuki, Lisa and Fushi. There's nothing really special about it, and game just could not be called a masterpiece at this point after all the routes and the True route.

But then right after true route a totally another game kicked in - "Roots". That's a samurai rural story about the powerful sword and fighting the greater evil. This story has a bright cheerful scenery and a cast of funny characters with numerous memorable moments. Then the connection between "Routes" and "Roots" was revealed, and game finally could be seen as an integrative complex story above the giri-giri masterpiece level up to the point of firm masterpiece level, or 8/10.

bandicam%2B2019-07-19%2B08-37-44-679.jpg

I can't evade discussing technical difficulties here. Only console versions are voiced. But console versions can't be hooked - I tried all the variants possible. Without voicing this game does not really worth the effort. So I ended up running recording high resolution PC version screen and text acquired through hooking, but at the same time running PSP version to get voicing from it. PSP version has auto-reading, but PC version does NOT. So I had to manually click through every phrase following PSP auto-reading tempo. This causes all those un-synchronized lines. As if it's not enough trouble already, PC hooking is same clunky as both Kizuato and Shizuku, which means that lines appear consequently on the screen making hooker tools see it backwards. There was a special hooking script developed for Kizuato and Shizuku making lines be translated in the right order, but not for Routes, alas. That's why translation must be read from the end sentences to the first sentences properly. Leaf games really suck for hooking. Moreover, since I had to manually click through 30 hours of gameplay, I made text appear in full blocks skipping some mid-line animations. Just wanted to noted that, because actual PSP version looks much more alive than what I got as a result.

Routes turned out to be a real challenge for me due to really poor systems of PC version. I spent so much time recording it that it may even affect the pace of my next publications since none are left prepared. Unfortunately, only Lisa route, True route and Roots are really worth playing making the leftover heroines routes feel redundant. Game has a really decent "Roots" story which is difficult to get to due to numerous technical difficulties encountered. I just hope that more people will be able to appreciate the game through my video of it.

This "review" ain't gonna have a structure, because it does not deserve one. And I'm accustomed to just retell my impressions in the way they progressed in such cases. Spoilers are inevitable, although it's needed to be something good to spoil it.

The first thing that struck me is that game is not voiced. REALLY? What cruel joke is that not to give voicing to a charage? And I don't have spare 120$ to get voiced ps2 version.

The second thing that enraged me is the protagonist that comes right from BL games, it's a typical seme. I can't hide my irritation by this fact.

bandicam%2B2019-07-11%2B15-41-26-890.jpg

Game starts with what I see as protagonist Tomoya flirting with his cousin Sarasa and getting a slap on the face because of that. Sarasa runs away in tears and gets sucked into a mirror followed by Tomoya. And here we should start experiencing the great story. But it does not come. For the half of the game (10 chapters) Tomoya just flirts with all the girls he finds scoring with two of them. Then he finally finds Sarasa. So is it time for development now? Not so soon, lads. Sarasa is in vegetative state which lasts for 6 more (!) chapters. So what do we do in these next ten chapters from 11 to 20? Well, we kinda don't care about our cousin, but score with two more girls. Well, we're finally out of heroines and need to get closer with Sarasa. She's engaged, but is almost kidnapped on the ceremony day. She is saved by some sticky ice mass from the ice-cream (???). Short awhile she kinda throws herself on Tomoya. He asks "Do you understand you'll betray your fiance this way"? Her answer is as pathetic as stupid "I want to betray the whole world now". Then in some time they both get to original world. So what the hell is this? Where is my supposed great story? So I though till saw the writer's list of works. And those are all generic moege without even a glimpse of the story. So it probably is a great story compared to those total failures.

I'm greatly dissatisfied with artist here. CG and character sprites of uneven quality here, but males are the worst. All of them either come directly from BL or Otomege.

bandicam%2B2019-07-11%2B15-41-42-442.jpg

The only things that I liked in this game is that it had auto-reading mode and that both lolis were spared from trampling. Game had some chibi CG which were supposed to add humor to it, but the only humorous part for me was how game zoomed on the hips and breast of Stella - the most skinny boy-ish type heroine. Just laughable.

In the raw outcome we get a weird single road story with zero interest but with lots of pretentious motives, pictures and BGM. It looks like a decent game, but scratch it and it will rot.

Remember11 -The Age of Infinity- is VN of the Month. Symphonic Rain is an honorary masterpiece. I got tempted by Japanese reviews praising story of Sora-iro no Organ , so I took it for review.

1. Oshikake Princess おしかけプリンセス [040305] Giant Panda
c31452sample3.jpg
Warring states era. 
Local daimyo Asakawa is killed in an enemy state assault. His real daughter manages to secretly escape with five vassals. But she fails to give birth to a boy, and hopes for house revival remain only hopes. When boy with Asakawa blood finally is born, it's already modern times. The descendants of the largest five vassals are all girls studying at one school. It's finally the time to fix historical injustice!
The setting looks super funny to me. But since girls are vassals and not rivals - they all easily start to live under one roof together. The individual scenarios are above average, and history parallels are thought of seriously. The whole revival thing gets lost as individual scenarios start, but there's no clear emphasis on either scenario or routes. Most of game's elements are good, but there's no integrity to produce an impact.

 

2. Remember11 -The Age of Infinity- [040318] KID 1 2 3 4 5 6
8tnu01000000wc9k.jpg
Fuyukawa Kokoro, a third-year sociology major, boards a plane bound for Hokkaido to meet a research subject in the Specified Psychiatric Hospital for Isolation and Aegis, or SPHIA. For unknown reasons, her plane crashes in the mountains in the middle of a snowstorm. Of the 31 passengers, only she, Kusuda Yuni, Yomogi Seiji, and Mayuzumi Lin survive unharmed. Unable to establish communication with the outside world due to the fierce snowstorm, the four decide to take shelter in an empty cabin and wait until the storm passes.
Yukidoh Satoru, a graduate student in the field of quantum physics, falls from the SPHIA clock tower. He later awakens with some memory loss and the realization that someone is out to kill him. Unable to leave the SPHIA facility due to a snowstorm, Satoru's only chance at living is to find that person among the three other residents (or perhaps the hidden culprit) of SPHIA.
Shortly after, Kokoro and Satoru realize that they are somehow exchanging bodies and Yuni appears to be at both of their locations...
There are English reviews.

 

3. Angel Maid エンジェルメイド [040319] Carriere
c37223sample6.jpg
Main character wakes up in an unfamiliar house and with no memory. He is taught the work from the maids and starts to work on a regular basis. However, his judgment ability is lacking and he ends up creating more work for the maids to tackle. He spends his days in such activities while trying to regain his memory...
Scenario is a mess, mostly for maid-lovers... H element is strong. Even a small mistake leads to a bad ending, but you need to get to the end to learn it

 

4. Fortune Cookie フォーチュンクッキー [040319] Smart
c41512sample1.jpg
Main character is an ordinary boy with a pretty face. Mother is extremely unlucky, so it's elder sister who supports the family.
One day mother gets premonition of "a great misfortune" during next month. Is it possible to avoid it? Can it really get even worse?
Full-scale incest game with mother and two sisters. There is a complex explanation of family circumstances in order to show it as non-blood related incest. There are 7 to 10 H scenes for each heroine, which is A LOT for a pure love game.

 

5. Happy Planning ~Shiawase no Souwa~ Happy Planning~しあわせの総和~ [040319] Juno
Siawase_019.jpg
The amount of happiness on the Earth is always kept constant, and becoming happy makes a lot of people unhappy. So says the cheerful childhood friend of main character. 
Protagonist loses track of her, but reunites with her at school. Her personality becomes grim as she does not want to steal other people's happiness. Is it possible to break out from this depressing theory and bring light to her heart?
The rapid development in the latter heart and the stupid resolution as "miracle  of love" really drag this game down. Character settings are slightly different from one route to another just for the sake of writer's convenience. That all puts Happy Planning in the kusoge area.

 

6. Jewels Ocean ジュエルスオーシャン [040319] Escu:de 1 2
battle.jpg
On a cold and mysterious night, five precious stones fell from the sky, each unintentionally discovered by five innocent girls. Unbeknownst to them, chaotic forces seek to retrieve these jewels, for they are the Demon Stones: apocalyptic artifacts capable of imbuing great power, yet at the cost of one’s sanity and soul. But all is not lost, for there is an individual who seeks to protect these gems and their bearers from these antagonists, regardless of the cost.
There is an English review.

 

7. Steady x Study ステディ×スタディ [040325] Idea Factory Co., Ltd.
bandicam%2B2019-07-05%2B14-37-34-532.jpg
You play as Makoto, a transfer student attending a school in Harajuku. You're not sure of what you want to do with your life and are given many choices, from entering the performing arts club, to going hardcore with your studies. Your choice will determine the path the game's story follows.
Steady X Study makes use of the "ASV" (Around Search View) system that allows you to look around your environment. While sitting at your desk in class, you can press a button on the D-pad to look at the girls sitting next to you. While waiting to meet someone at the train station, you can look around and will likely find new things, including secret movies and events.
Yet another console generic SOL visual novel with some another revolutionary system for only additional frustration. Scenario is a mess, and I can't think of target audience of this fraud.

 

8. Filnansis フィルナンシス [040326] Emu
88198.jpg
Mother warns main character to return home straight from school on his birthday day. Day passes just as usual, but he is delayed on the way home by the conversation with his childhood friend.
He find only wreckage on the place of his home with a note that makes no sense. Three girls suddenly appear and claim that protagonist is the successor of their country Grandfold where only girls live. He does not believe them until they take him to this country... 
Bakage with a meaningless scenario, horrible sound tracks and useless protagonist. Game is universally marked as a kusoge.

 

9. Sora-iro no Organ 空色の風琴 [040326] The Lotus 1
c16454table3.jpg
You and I are an octave apart. Will we be able to harmonize...?
The night the ocean wind blew, your organ reflected the moonlight.

Will he succeed in filling the emotional gap between Sarasa and himself?
The story progresses with a variety of colorful scenery and beautiful organ sounds. The scenario contains painstaking details of the strange world of Alcio, such as festivals and religious ceremonies. Utmost attention has been paid to character creation. You will experience the fantastic, yet realistic world of Alcio and the relationships of characters there
A decent-looking game. There is no better candidate for review this month, so I'm taking it up for review.

 

10. Symphonic Rain シンフォニック=レイン [040326] Kuroneko-san Team 1 2 3 4 5 6
112381.jpg
Symphonic Rain takes place in a fictional city of apparently Italian heritage, where rain falls everyday. The locals there have adapted to this peculiar phenomenon, and carry on with their lives as if the rain was never there. No one takes an umbrella, no one wears a rain coat.
The main character of the story is 17 year old Chris, a Fortelle student of the famous Piova Communal School of Music (Scuola Comunale di Musica Piova, in Italian). Separated from his childhood sweetheart Arietta when he left his home town for the city, he keeps in touch with her through the means of weekly letters. Penning their thoughts on those letters, Chris treasures and keeps her weekly writings, for he had promised her that should his drawer become totally filled with them, he would return to her.
The game starts during Chris's third year as a student, a few months before he has to take the school's final graduation examination: a staged performance. As an instrumentalist, he is required to search for a vocalist partner before he is eligible for the examination.
There are English reviews.

5. Make Love Junkies メイクラヴ・ジャンキース [040312] Ignition
Imagine a miracle drug that can turn any self-respecting person into a sex-crazed deviant. Furthermore, imagine the drug has a name as ridiculous as “Make Love Junkies”. In this H-game, this drug is real, and it was mailed to our protagonist after ordering it off TV. It has such a peculiar potency that those affected still retain their mental faculties, but they are hardly in control of their starving bodies. That being said, our hero decides to make a harem consisting of a few women he’s had his eyes on, whether they’d like to or not. Two of these intended are classmates; those two also work as waitresses with another target; and finally there’s the literature teacher. At first our heroines aren’t so keen to get it on with our hero, but soon they’ll be giving themselves into the pleasure. That is, if you play your cards right (not too difficult with a miracle aphrodisiac).

Foreword: I awaited a high fantasy story with very mature and curious looking characters. What I got was...

Title: Schrei-Ten

Developer: Pisckiss

Date: 2004-02-20

VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v14455

Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3bALNSl9Nk&list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv8rKP5oDa1nzt0KevjFrmhw&index=28

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-59-39-045.jpg

Synopsis: Shrei-Ten is the name of a huge donut-shaped continent dominated by the kingdom of Schleiten. The holy king Schultz Engel defeated his bitter enemy Zusain fifty three years ago gaining supremacy and bringing eternal peace. Main heroine is an adventurer who accepts bounties to get rid of robbers, pirates and monsters. This is a story told from the viewpoint of seven different adventurers..

Game type: What the hell have I just read aka "Mindfuck"

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 2/10

Story rating: 2/10

Game quality: 4/10

Overall rating: 3/10

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-56-51-747.jpg

Rating comments: Well, you see the numbers. The only thing I liked in this game is fancy male characters and kinky manga-like drawing. I'll list all the numerous fallacies of the game in the technical difficulties section.

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-54-27-167.jpg

Protagonist: There are seven protagonists, really. sword-wielding heroine Elisia Groundbell, her love interest two-handed sword wielder Yukito Howard, tank with a huge shield Richard Hackney, tinkerer and scout Mark Speedster, magical shop owner and former adventurer Silky Goldberg, alchemist Morgan Zimarson, legendary thief Gasutam Lionet. It's a great cast of really funny characters, so it's sad to see the game kill all the fun.

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-58-45-494.jpg

Characters: There are some side characters, but they mostly serve for H-scenes since there are only two female protagonists, and the demand for H-scenes is high. The majority from these 70 mini-stories can be described by the same core - a boy and a girl go to investigate some ruins and have fun together.

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-58-02-212.jpg

Story: Story is elusive and absolutely vague. There 70 (!) mini-stories told from different points of view happening in parallel. The worst point that you can't access them sequentially. Instead you start with the story 10, then constantly have to jump around 10 stories ahead and 10 stories back. But when you reach story 70 nothing really happens. Because the ending is behind story number 63! That's the most stupid structure I ever seen. The story itself is... weird. By the middle of the game we get to story number 1 where we get to know about explosion in the palace cellar, and the tunnels are revealed together with some vague threat over the kingdom. For the main course of the story characters mostly spend time at the town or investigate these ruins. That eventually brings them all separately to the source of trouble - the monster on the island. That's the whole story, really. More than that, some stories have forks, and it's never explained which one is real. Some forks are just for fanservice, as Elisia becoming futanari. But with some others it becomes really confusing. Person can die in one story and be alive again in the following stories.

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-53-41-651.jpg

Technical difficulties: There is no auto-read. The "no wait" option only appears after patch is installed. Before that it was pure torture to read. BGM only appears from time to time and for a very limited time. There is NO voicing. Had to rely on good old AGTH to tackle the flush problems. Only HCG and a handful of non-HCG take the whole screen size. Normal events only take some 2/3 of screen space, and background are squeezed to some 1/5 of screen size. But the worst of all, game continued to force close every 10-15 minutes at different PCs and OS.

bandicam%2B2019-07-04%2B18-54-55-331.jpg

Overall comments: The horrible game structure, weak story, no voicing, poor game system and impact at H-events absolutely ruin this game in my eyes. I see such structure as the result of impotence of the writer covering plot loopholes with short individual stories format and abuse of H-events. But the same writer created Kansen ~In'yoku no Rensa~ that's reported to include worthy story. I look forward to reviewing it.

Forest is the only masterpiece of the month. I'm choosing lesser known Schrei-Ten for review.

1. Colorful Heart ~12 ko no Kyururun♪~ カラフルハート ~12コのきゅるるん♪~ [040206] Giga
c34701sample4.jpg
Main character 's parents go overseas living him alone. With the help of the childhood friend he becomes accustomed to such life. On the day of graduation ceremony he learns that he needs to marry a woman. 12 bride candidates move in to his house to live together for one month.
I have not invented a reason to block such a game yet, but it's an ero-tilt moege from Giga, so it lost before it was even issued.

 

2. Kenshuui Tendo Dokuta 研修医 天堂独太 [040212] Spike 1 2
tendo02.jpg
Kenshuui Tendo Dokuta is a medical drama that focuses on challenges of a young new doctor, Dokuta Tendou. He is a 25-year old training rookie, fresh out of the University, and low on experience. In this hospital-themed game the player won't just plunge in and focus on treating ailments. The protagonist has to talk to patients and, based on the clues they give him, try to find out what is wrong with them, if they can be treated, and if so, how.
There is an English review.

 

3. Amaenbou ~Mou! Ikenai Ko ne~ あまえんぼう~もう!イケないコね~ [040213] Speed
c31541sample3.jpg
Main character is a spoiled young man bathing in attention since childhood. One summer he is invited to a family as a tutor. All the women here are sweet beauties. They accept protagonist as he is and even allow him to advance further than that...
Moege

 

4. Cherish Pizza wa Ikaga Desu ka♥ チェリッシュピザはいかがですか♥ [040213] F&C FC02
c31363sample2.jpg
The story of a college student who was decides to work part-time at a pizzeria "Cherish Pizza". What kind of life will he have at this part-time job?
Generic moege. It's F&C, after all.

 

5. Forest [040213] Liar-soft 1 2 3 4 5
74122.jpg
"I am Alice. Do let me hear a story."
Here and there - in the space between buildings, in back alleys, perhaps even in the underground - the Forest bleeds into our world. The Forest is a forbidden place where the rules of our world do not apply.
Our heroes must struggle against the Forest, without so much as the hope of assistance or understanding from the outside world.
They do battle against the "riddles" the Forest imposes upon them with the aid of superhuman abilities known as "gifts." 
And should they know defeat in their battle against the Forest, they will face that which they fear most - expulsion from Shinjuku.
Game is localized and has English reviews.

 

6. Shuka 朱華 [040213] LiLiM
c28125sample2.jpg
The Chinese-style world of Shenhua. Young queen rules the country of Shonan where spirits worship is practiced and theater plays are main means of entertainment. 
Main character is an actor who appears in this world after following a disappeared actress in his dream.
Boy investigates a new world as he can't return to the previous world. Scenario remains on ordinary level instead of promises of epic magnificence, so it remains an average game.

 

7. Schrei-Ten [040220] Pisckiss
111351.jpg
Shrei-Ten is the name of a huge donut-shaped continent dominated by the kingdom of Schleiten. The holy king Schultz Engel defeated his bitter enemy Zusain fifty three years ago gaining supremacy and bringing eternal peace. Main heroine is an adventurer who accepts bounties to get rid of robbers, pirates and monsters. This is a story told from the viewpoint of seven different adventurers..
Elysia is only nominally main heroine. Story is told from seven different perspectives. All the stories develop in parallel. I'll review it myself since there aren't games this month that interest me more than this one.

 

8. Hurrah! Sailor ふらせら~HURRAH! SAILOR~ [040226] Datam Polystar
77624.jpg
Konika, Ichino, Mareta, Shoya, and Ensign Kurie find themselves stranded on a planet whose inhabitants have developed virtually no technology at all.
The Two United Empires and the Federation Kingdom have been at war for centuries and entire galaxies have been turned into war zones. With neither side ever achieving a decisive victory, the conflict has been dragging on so long that both sides have even forgotten the reason why the war originally started.
But now, for Konika of the Federation Kingdom, and the others from the United Empire, they must put aside their differences to find a way off the planet together. During this process, they find that perhaps there are no differences between them and some of them begin to wonder if they wouldn’t be better off not returning to the war.
It's a casual galge on a tropical island and - despite the synopsis - almost without SF elements. It's not a game for everyone, but a good change of pace from romantic games.

 

9. Tentama 2wins てんたま 2wins [040226] KID 1
77764.jpg
The story takes a couple of years after the original game and the main protagonist is Akira Ichinose, a high-school freshman who is staying at your relatives' place until graduation. The life seemed without any particular problems until one day, out of the blue, twin sisters, Kae and Momi, apprentice angels, no less, crash landed on top of Akira in his room.
It's a SIM, because there are parameters to develop. There's a good mix of gags and traditional console KID boredom.

 

10. Ai Cute! Kimi ni Koishiteru 愛cute! キミに恋してる [040227] Palette
c30249table1.jpg
Sakurai high school is build around a stone that used to be a guidepost for transportation. At school it becomes a place for confessions. When main character confesses by the monument, love cupid Chocolate appears. If he develops real love feelings, this love cupid can become human. Protagonist tries his best to get a girlfriend, but will his efforts be rewarded?
The number of heroines is big, and we need to memorize their tastes to raise favorability level in conversations by the right choices. The development of Chocolate route is unexpected, but not sure other heroines are worth the trouble.

 

11. Moe Love ~Natsuiro Moegi Ryou~ MOEラブ~なついろ萌黄寮~ [040227] Giga
26031.jpg
While aimlessly walking around after loosing his apartment in a fire, the homeless Shuichi met a girl in housemaid attire. Apparently, that girl was his younger sister separated from him after their parents' divorce. She offered him shelter. He accepted it of course... only to find out that they'll be living together in an all-girls inn managed by his sister. The boarders were against it, however, they granted him a month of probational stay after some twists and turns. And his cohabitation with the girls began.
Two horrible Giga moege in just one month? Their productivity is getting out of control here.

 

12. Silent Half [040227] LimeLight
c15186sample1.jpg
Main character regains consciousness at the hospital. His last memories are about a girl that got into an accident together with him.
Time passes, and one day that finally arrives. Protagonist wants to hug and kiss her, but she does not remember him. What will he do?
There's little sense in the game. First half is the story of meeting and reminiscence. The second part suddenly branches to three different heroines. There's no charm felt.

 

13. Sora o Miagete Omou Koto そらをみあげて想うこと [040227] Black Light
VJ001784_img_smpa1.jpg
In 2005 an artificial object flew into the Earth orbit. At the same time people with different supernatural powers started to appear on the planet. A research team was sent to the object and exploded together with the object.
In 2015 main character with the power of "possibility expansion" enrolls to a private school on a solitary island. This power helps to create the 3rd option when facing a fork. He communicates with teachers and students possessing different abilities without knowing that it's going to draw him closer to revealing the mystery of the space cube artificial object...
Game turned out to be surprisingly decent. Main character's ability relies on quantum mechanics and is cleverly used in the game. There are a lot of SF elements, some are even difficult to accept. True route puts all the dots at right places, but it's easy to trigger, so it's easy to miss on other heroines routes. Romantic element is a bit thin, and story can just through weeks - that allows to extend game period to eight months. Game is mostly about SF and can only be enjoyed as such.  

 

14. Towakoku 永ワ刻-トワコク- [040227] PeasSoft

Main character starts to live alone after entering university. One day he watches girl Setsuna dying in a traffic accident. He uses his awakened ability to turn back time to help the girl and discover what's hidden behind disappearances in the town. Protagonist's important people start to get involved. At the same time all these crimes push him to commit atrocities himself...
Time Jump System is featured in this work. It's needed to return to the past with the learned information and rewrite it. And it's important to do it at the right time - dwell too long and protagonist gets killed instead. Scenario is weak per se, but together with this system it gets rather interesting.

Everything was going fine at my new school, but I was in for a shock one day when I discovered the class president Rumi and my classmate Natsuki having sex in the school infirmary! Not only that, it turned out that Rumi was a futanari - a hermaphrodite with something between her legs I wasn't expecting to see. That evening when I got home and got a call from Rumi to come and meet her, I knew it couldn't be good - but the first thing she said was, "won't you join us?"
According to her story she'd been a futanari from birth, and because of this had an unquenchable curiosity regarding the ways of sex. She'd gotten to the point where having Natsuki as a sex partner wasn't enough... she told me she was planning to train our classmate Shizuko as a sex slave! Shizuko, a neat freak famous for her dislike of her male classmates, had let it slip to Rumi that she was secretly very curious about sex as well...
Faced with no other options, I had no choice but to accept Rumi's request to join her and her comrades in their erotic schemes... and from that moment I was bound to these cute and "ecchi" kitties in their catgirl alliance!

Synopsis: Paradise Lost takes off in a dystopian setting that comes off as much more blatantly dark than its successors’. The stage is in a city known only as Sodom, which is separated from the outside world known as “Zoar”. Ruled by the gang known as the Infinite Viper, the law of “the strong eat the weak” is rampant throughout Sodom to the point that if you’ve lived beyond the age of 20, you most likely have murdered someone in order to do so. It is widely believed that outside lies a peaceful world free of the everyday violence so frequently seen in Sodom, but there is a closely guarded Gate that prevents residents of Sodom from leaving so no one has actually left and returned to confirm.

bandicam%2B2019-07-03%2B06-27-40-320.jpg

Rating comments: Game has few perfect ratings, and I really tried to find any flaws in it as well. But I could not find any. I absolutely love all the protagonist, heroines and even side-characters. Story is second-to-none and without any fillers. Quality hits over the roof for me. 

Protagonist: Ryle is totally awesome with his split personality and coolness, but I was worried about Know a lot after reading reviews on the game. He was described as a jerk associating with the worst moments of the game. That's partly true, but Know is not a one-sided character. He's a kind-hearted loving brother in the beginning of the game. He is reflexing about having to lose his left hand to buy food. When he is put into conditions to lose his right arm, he's at the brink of despair. He's so weak, but he chooses to protect Sophia and Ril even at the cost of his life - and only miracles save him several times. Masada writing manages to imbue Know with a lot of empathy which colors his less rational actions with different shades of grey.

bandicam%2B2019-07-03%2B06-28-22-319.jpg

Characters: All three heroines are charming and possess a unique story of survival in this unpredictable world. But side-characters and enemies also make this game shine. Ennis appearance makes every scene better. Moral choices and hesitations of Lilith make this heartless scientist feel alive. It's rare to meet such charismatic (and voiced!) negative character as Judas Strife. 

Story: The only thing I want so say about the story is that it's fast-paced, breathtaking and without fillers. Each chapter has its title which seems a bit off from the start, but each chapter manages to perfectly describe its meaning.

Prologue

The 1st. God Forsaken Sodom 

The 2nd. A Contest For Belzebub .

The Intermission. Criminal Fire Works.

The 3rd. Guilty Guilty Guilty

The Final. God Save The Zoar

The Final Godless A God Knows

bandicam%2B2019-07-03%2B06-28-46-773.jpg

Thoughts:

1) One of the best features of the game is sex scenes filled with talk and meaning. And it's not just one Ast blowjob scene. Half of H events are made this way, so I feel sorry I have to cut them out of the video. I only encountered this feature in Coμ so far, and it really adds up to the evaluation.

2) I only know Dies Irae by the anime so far, but I'm sure that Paradise Lost is its spiritual predecessor. It has a lot of God motives as well concept of an omnipotent Deity messing with lowly creatures fates.

Overall comments: This is the first Masada game that I've read.  I'll try to play every game where he has something to do with the concept or writing.

Paradise Lost and Fate/Stay Night are the only masterpieces of the month, but Paradise Lost wins almost almost in every field in comparison.

2. Gyakuten Saiban 3 逆転裁判3 [040123] Capcom 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
123664.jpg
This game is the last of the series featuring Phoenix Wright as the main character, and through its course, gives more details on the past of important characters such as Mia Fey and Phoenix Wright, while tying up the loose ends on the storyline set up in the previous games.
The gameplay in Trials and Tribulations remains the same as both previous titles, including the use of Psyche-Locks introduced in Justice for All. A minor change is that the player will take on the role of different people other than Phoenix Wright for certain cases within the game, but this does not alter the game mechanics.
Game is localized and has English reviews.

 

3. Marebito ~Soshite Sekai wa Hairo o Ushinau~ マレビト~そして世界は色を失う~ [040123] Juno
c32964table1.jpg
1980s. Main character Kensuke lives a normal school life and prepares for a cultural festival. However, one day he starts to see a mysterious man hiding from him, and that changes his peaceful life. He remembers tales of Marebito which is either a production of unshaped human fantasies or a demon. Will Kensuke get it all from his youth or get trapped in a strange incident?
We basically must determine what nature Marebito has and get development depending on that. This whole concept felt weird to me. 

 

4. Moke Moke Taishou Dendou Musume Arisa もけもけ大正電動娘ARISA [040123] Mixwill Soft
c34062sample4.jpg
A strange android girl falls from the sky and crash-lands into Shinichirou's cafe, causing her to register him as her new master. Helping with chores isn't Arisa's niche, but she manages to fit in with his sister, Kotomi, until a new girl shows up looking for "Fire Bee". Through a series of sexual encounters, Arisa is found out to be the weapon "Fire Bee" Shinichirou's father was working on before he disappeared. Now the military is desperate to get her back at any cost.
A slapstick comedy with absolutely useless scenario, because of contradictions and bakage direction. It may be a curious game among kusoge, but it is still a kusoge.

 

5. Ensemble ~Maioriru Hane no Ensemble~ ENSEMBLE~舞降る羽のアンサンブル~ [040130] DreamSoft
c25965sample6.jpg
Fifteen years ago, Hiyoshi Kaede got separated from his sister after the divorce of his parents. They planted a maple tree on their house's garden as a way to remember each other. Now, he returns to the tree once again...
Game is quite long, but without any twisted scenario turns or excitement. Some heroines from previous F&C games are featured casually. A typical F&C game without individuality.

----The one who obtains the Holy Grail will have any wish come true.

As he gets cornered, he somehow summons his own Servant and manages to stay alive long enough to compete against the other Masters.
