Synopsis: Set in Akihabara in the near future, "Hello, world." is a hearty, feature-length, cyber battle-action/campus-life story about a robot boy and the girls that surround him.

Tremendous progress has been made in technical advances. Various networks have taken strongholds with each new generation. Though not nearly advanced as humans, two-legged robots are utilized in many practical areas throughout the world. Amid worldwide peace, the human race remains unchanged.

Kazuki Tomonaga is a robot made by an entity called "HIKARI" for the purpose of "GLOBAL ILLUMINATION". He's created with ingenuity as precise as that of a human being. Kazuki is commanded to research the concepts of "human emotion". Along the way he meets various girls and has exchanges with them. In their "exchanges" his "curiosity" gradually turns into "affection" and his mission becomes more intense. He gradually starts to build his own philosophy, not knowing he will be forced to make crucially important decisions in the near future.

What? How can "Hello, world" not be a masterpiece - are you even sane? That would be my initial reaction as well, but I have my argumentation. All in its due time.

First of all, I was shocked by trash rating of the game in the most notable Japanese reviewer blog of old games ADVGAMER (1). The reasons for that are quite vague: overextendent, confusing in the second part and as a result a really boring game. But of course I just considered reviewer a weakling who could not understand the gist of the game - and bravely dived into the action.

The first half of the game is surprisingly orthodox despite the fact that protagonist as an android. He explores the world and the girls close to him. There are over 10 events with each girl to pursue with its romantic resolution. Pace is really bad, but curious side-characters and unfamiliar futuristic setting make it tolerable.


But then happens second part which is a set of action episodes with a bit of romance in-between. And it all comes to very simplistic story. There are five girls who have relatives suffered from a certain "evil" corporation. Hacker incidents start to happen breaking out into a full-scale machine rebellion. That's it! There's no sophistication in the plot at all. Of course, there are much more side-characters, every girl has her own circumstances, and there is a series of incidents leading to the culmination, but it does not change the fact that it's all done just to show action scenes, not to really move the plot. But the greatest tragedy of the game is that it lasts for 30 hours on initial playthrough, and subsequent routes need to go through absolutely the same plot, just with different romance events and the very ending. As ADVGAMER puts it, game either must have an unusual setting and take time to describe its details or have a common setting and then adhere to compact structure. But Hello, world tries to present a common setting like something new, and then prolongs it to insane lengths putting reader in the state of the ultimate boredom. 

One of the flaws of the game is tasteless character design. Who said that green hair girl should have green eyes, violet hair girl - violet eyes, blue hair - blue eyes and red hair girl - red eyes?! That looks absolutely stupid. Character designs are trashy, and artist work manages to catch such poor angles at times that result looks super-ugly. There is just one girl with the design I like - that's Junko. Cool white long hair with really nice haircut, great black and red suit, mini-skirt and always carrying a gun. Just perfect! But she's not one of the heroines! She's just a side-character to help fight baddies in action scenes! Why-y-y???


The second disappointing feature is "partial voicing", but don't be misguided here, it's actually NO VOICING. We barely manage to hear how each heroine should sound during the first hour of play, then there are 30 hours of NO VOICING. Not in action scenes, not in culmination romantic scenes - just never. That's something really disappointing.

Game really makes the best of 3D rendering from Phantom of Inferno (close-ups on weapons) and Vjedogonia (moving vehicles), but action scenes remain confusing. The air battle between three aircrafts on one side and one modified air fighter on the other side left me really disappointed. Action scenes end with some sudden development rather than being one logical performance.


Routes are composed in one of the worst possible ways. Story is absolutely the same with just romance events changing from heroine to heroine. Then each heroine has her individual end where only she and hero survive as well as the true end where everyone survives. There is just a bit of fresh air in the individual endings of each heroine, but True ending of each heroine is absolutely the same... save for the last 5 minutes that describe heroine 6 years after the main events of the story. That's a real crime to make people try to grasp something new in 30-hour long route and not even giving anything really new. It's the same story, but we hope you have 150 hours to read them all - a horrible move.

The biggest problem with "Hello, world" is the aftertaste and lack of satisfaction. It's not that bad while it lasts for the first time even though pace is terrible, but each new "route" only brings anger and despair. I look back and only see dozens of hours of wasted time. What did I get in return? Nothing. Not a good story, not a good romance. Some flashy action scenes and some nice side-characters are the only things that I look back to without irritation. Game does not respect its readers. Readers should not respect such a disintegrated game.



Masaru: Ashita no Yukinojou 2 is the VN of the Month. Hotosenaru Uta Chitosenaru Shirushi is definitely a masterpiece as well. As for "Hello, world." with its great reviews, I'll tell you in next issue whether I consider it a masterpiece or not.

1. Hoshimatsuri no Uta ほしまつりのうた [020906] Softhouse Dew 1
Soichiro Sugimoto is a kind, quiet boy attending Yuigasaki High School. Students at this school like to throw festivals, and the upcoming festival, the Star Festival, is one of the biggest festivals of the year.
Soichiro doesn't like festivals or parties, but his friends won't leave him alone on the night of the Star Festival. Kaya, who grew up with Soichiro, asks him to go to the festival with her. The truth is, Soichiro is secretly in love with her.
Fine naive heroic youth scenario. Full female voicing is promised, but actually there's partial female voicing. Below average game even if you like the heroines here.


2. Jewel Matrix じゅえる☆まとりくす [020906] Ivory
Main character returns from adventure with power "matrix". It can be magically activated to attract matrix jewel girls with different respective attributes. His story of love and protection begins now.
Game was supposed to be a SIM, but got delayed significantly to convert it to ADV. 9 chapters are devoted to the heroine line and the last three chapters are the rush to the end. Ending chapters are very similar for all heroines.


3. Mystic Report ~Koi no Bukatsu wa Chikoku Shinai~ ミスティック・リポート ~恋の部活はチコクしない~ [020906] Hadashi Shoujo
Main character belongs to school newspaper club. He is inspired by the the seven school wonders stories and takes interview from girls who experience strange phenomena at school. With his pretty girl assistant he faces mystic, but so real dangers.
Mix of RPG and ADV. Losing in fight means game over as long as insult scene usually. There are four episodes. To see every route it's needed to play seven times, but it's very tiresome to play after initial playthrough. Erotic element is thin overall.


4. Tearful Eyes ~Anata shika Inai~ ティアフルアイズ~あなたしかいない~ [020906] Kamen Shoukai
Main character meet a girl on the hill behind the school. She lies on the hill wearing a white dress instead of uniform. He only dares to talk to her after becoming festival committee member, and they seem to have much in common, but she asks to keep white dress in secret. However, after becoming friends, protagonist starts to notice strange shadows behind the girl personality. One day she stops talking to him...
Orthodox school love drama. Story is short, and showing synopsis takes the majority of its time.Development is sudden and there aren't enough events to pull it through.


5. Hotosenaru Uta Chitosenaru Shirushi ほとせなる呪ちとせなる詛 [020913] Project-μ
Main character is visited by a girl who claims that his only distant relative taking care of her died in a fire. Mysterious death cases start to pursue protagonist. One of the latest victims blamed "email from a closed girl" curse as the cause of deaths.
Horror entertainment novels as developers call the genre. This company is well known for presenting concept of the theater in each work. This time is no different - there's a lot of movement going on the screen, but thanks to other means than animation. It manages to be both horror and bakage. Game grasps fears of modern age realistically creating hard-boiled horror atmosphere. Real masterpiece here.


6. Stairs ~Natsu no Chotto Mae~ STAIRS~夏のちょっと前~ [020913] Aias 1
After living in the U.S., our hero returns to Japan to continue his studies. He stays at the shrine of his dad's friend and goes to school in the country...
Our hero will meet up with many fun-loving babes:
The only daughter of the shrine priest. She wants nothing to do with the occult.
Our hero's cheerful but troublemaking classmate.
The senior would-be "magician" with a red cape.
The foreign student from England who is more Japanese than most Japanese people.
The girl listlessly standing on the rooftop.
He's supposed to have a peaceful school life with these girls, but life is not that easy! 
A lot of weird things are happening around him, one after another...
Heroines are nice, but story lacks excitement. Climax and H events are sudden. Whatever good is created in the first half is crushed mercilessly in the second half.


7. Blue-Sky-Blue(s) -Sora o Mau Tsubasa- Blue-Sky-Blue【s】-空を舞う翼- [020920] Emu 1
The protagonist's mom passed away 10 years ago and the father-son relationship is a strained one. When poppy's work as a weatherman and new marriage sends them to Hokkaido, the player enters a new school and joins up with a group of student's whose passion is the sky - with the belief that people come from the sky and will eventually return to the sky...
Six girls are available for the romancing including honor student Kasumi Itimatsu, school director's granddaughter Fuuka Mitsuba and assistant teacher Tomomi Shinose.
This is a story of conflict with abstract perceptions of heroines, so don't expect a love comedy here. It may be called the opposite of charage as personalities live in lies and dreams, and everyday life scenes get truncated. A bold experiment.


8. Hajirahi はじらひ [020920] Blue Gale
Main character fails a big project at an advertising agency, and now he takes a month long paid vacation. He goes to a remote village which image he remembers from a postcard.
It's needed to raise favorability rating with one of heroines in the course of numerous events. After the three sisters are captured, true route is revealed. Apart of three sisters there is also a school teacher and a lively girl, but they are treated as sub-characters not gaining own ending. Development is boring as there is nothing to do but enjoy rural life and various situations.  


9. Panic!! Kerokero Kingdom ぱにっく!! けろけろ王国 [020920] Pajamas Soft
A lot of frog have fallen from the sky! Extremely selfish protagonist intends to defeat them quickly and become famous. Suddenly first princess of the country shows up and persuades protagonist to fight for her cause.
First part is tetris game with frogs as blocks, second part is various puzzles with H as reward.


10. Brave Knight ~Leverant Eiyuuden~ ブレイブナイト ~リーヴェラント英雄伝~ [020926] Panther Software Co., Ltd.
Medieval romance interaction game featuring 14 lovely maidens available for the wooing.
Another useless lazy Xbox exclusive SIM.


11. Dalk Gaiden DALK外伝 [020927] Alice Soft 1 2 
Our hero is the Love God, "Martis," who also appeared in the previous title. He was turned into a regular person because he disobeyed the Master God, Furad. He ends up searching inside the body of the giant god Varuga with 7 maids in order to subdue the Demon God, Port Nunu. This parasitic demon is running rampant around in Varuga's body.
Varuga's body is a labyrinth, which consists of a giant dungeon with many floors. Martis and the maids advance into the dungeon as they beat small monsters on their way to defeat Port Nunu, who is hiding in the deepest area of the dungeon. 
Game is a sequel by name only, even story has no connections. Story is one road, each heroine has very few events. Battle system is quite simple and entertaining. Game is sold for just 1/3 of normal game price, so epic hopes should not be placed on it.


12. Hachimitsu Sou de Hoppe ni Chuu はちみつ荘 de ほっぺにチュウ [020927] Palette 1
The hero is a fourth grade student from college who is graduating this year. 
During the summer break from the university, he was living a lazy life and doing nothing all the time. One day, his parents kicked him out of home. Seeking independence, tries to find a part-time job. And then he becomes an apartment manager. In his the last summer vacation, his stopped time begins to move. 
SIM with schedule and something else, but I already don't care.


13. "Hello, world." [020927] Nitroplus 1 2 3 4
Set in Akihabara in the near future, "Hello, world." is a hearty, feature-length, cyber battle-action/campus-life story about a robot boy and the girls that surround him.
Tremendous progress has been made in technical advances. Various networks have taken strongholds with each new generation. Though not nearly advanced as humans, two-legged robots are utilized in many practical areas throughout the world. Amid worldwide peace, the human race remains unchanged.

In their "exchanges" his "curiosity" gradually turns into "affection" and his mission becomes more intense.

There are many English reviews. 


14. Majo no Ocha Kai 魔女のお茶会 [020927] Frontwing 1 2 3 4 5
Long, long ago, there was a world in which mages and humans existed in harmony. Deep contrasts in their two cultures, however, caused differences that could not be overcome between the two races. The humans feared the great power of the mages, and hunted them, trying to erase their kind from the earth. God felt pity for their plight and created a world of magic for them, which they could go to in peaceful exile. In this way the mages faded from the Earth, and all contact between the two peoples ceased. Each continued on their own paths, the humans that of civilization, and mages that of magic.
A few hundred years have passed since that time, and the mages are hopeful that, once again, the two races can live in harmony together. In the hope of finding a way to bridge their differences, the mages send out their young acolytes for training in the world of the humans. If the younger generations of the two peoples can find a way of connecting, perhaps the acolytes could gain important knowledge that will enable the two groups to live together again. This year three young wizards will cross over into the world of humans... Two of them are elite, and one a total drop out. Can they reunite the two peoples of Earth and the World of Magic?
Game is localized and has many English reviews.


15. Masaru: Ashita no Yukinojou 2 勝 あしたの雪之丞2 [020927] Elf 1
Kubo Masaru was knocked out into a critical state of unconsciousness by the prequel's protagonist, Yukimura Yukinojou, during a boxing practice.
He recovered from the coma now, and at present is attending Ryouzuki School.
However, due to his insufficient attendance, he has to repeat a year, additionally got barred from the possibility of practicing box, and is moved from the specially selected sports class to a general education class where he, alongside with his classmate Mizushina Akira, is fighting against heavy odds at the studies designed as preparations of entering university.
After regaining his consciousness and recovering from the feeling that "he has somehow slipped into the future" due to the time he lost in coma, the doctors also forbid him to practice his biggest passion - boxing -, thus now Masaru is frustrated of being unable to continue and is completely burning out inside.
Just what sort of destiny such a Masaru could end up with?
There is an English review.

Typing adventure... seriously? Story is quite good, and I bet there are just no good enough typing games to compete with this one so far. Game's sold for 1/3 of usual price.

Synopsis: Shinichi Manabe attends Seiryo High School. His father is a writer. 5 years ago, Shinichi went to see a mysterious mirage with Mio Fukamachi and Tamako Fujiomi. Mio is one year older than Shinichi and acts like his mother, while Tamako loves old samurai movies and likes to hug.

The mirage really was mysterious, and they had a lot of fun. However, a week later, Mio tries to save a cat but ends up being killed. Shinichi hasn't seen a mirage since that fateful day.

One day, Tamako and Shinichi suddenly encounter another mirage. Shinichi pulls Tamako into the dense fog. Shinichi soon realizes that he is with Mio, not Tamako. He also realizes that instead of Mio, Tamako is dead. He asks himself, "Am I in a different world?" Looking for further clues, he flips through his album and finds many pictures he doesn't even recognize. He's now convinced that this isn't his world.

Structure: Three consequent routes with first two being kinetic ones and last one branching off to four sub-heroines

Length: 12

Game type: Heartwarming light comedy about youth

Difficulty: Almost kinetic novel

Character Design rating: 8/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 6/10

Game quality: 7/10

Overall rating: 7/10


This game is very difficult to talk about, because nothing happens there. Synopsis really prepares us for a full-scale mystery drama, but game's totally different. Homerical gags take 4/5 of the game. They are so densely packed that you can start playing from any point in the game and have a lot of fun. Because of this overwhelming amount of humor there's not really much time for drama left. Only first Mio route has some time devoted to building up relations. The other routes have roughly a minute in the end to light up the mood. A nice example of game's humor is a scene of Mio's mother calling police to start searching for Mio. But because of her childish voice, police asks her several questions and considers it a childish prank cutting the call.

Humor is main actor of the game, so it deserves a close-up. The cover of the game already says much about it. There aren't character sprites in the game. The majority of time characters are presented by enclosed chibi drawings. Just as in Lien they allow to show a great variety of funny emotions and also depict actions just fine. Like heroine square approaching hero square little by little, and hero square moving the opposite direction little by litte, or these squares start to approach closer and closer, then - bam - some acquaintance comes in and face squares jump off to opposite corners. I totally love humor here, even at times when it concentrates on Mio teasing hero with adult talk about shame play and Tama teasing him with childish flashes of underwear etc.


Since we touched characters already, let's introduce them. Shinichi is our main hero. Mio and Tama are his childhood friends with Mio being onee-san long hair type and Tama being genki imouto short-hair type. Other heroines don't really deserve a mention as full-fledged characters. Story often returns to characters of kindergarten age and uses chibi pictures resembling those super-young characters, so it's very difficult to treat main heroines as objects of love interest. Game is not about love. Yes, it has some branchings to satisfy this need, but only so forth.

Game engine inherits DoNoR model with its crude auto-reading. But even though backgrounds here are also rendered real photos, they look totally fine and natural here thanks to just decreasing number of colors creating water paint effect. No more eye pain because of blurry images!


Game title is quite touching as it can be translated as "It's a miracle that we all are here". In fact it corresponds to the picture book that Shin started to write and that has nothing in it but this title. 

What I mean to say by this hectic review is that this game is absolutely revolutionary in its lovely passiveness. There are no logical connections, no plot movements, no love drama, no conclusions. Game presents us lots of good moments with perfectly voiced heroines and ends on a high pitch note. It's free of all the stamps of the media. It's an enjoyable entertainment from beginning to end and great text to read. As if game tells us that we should be free of conventions enjoy at least this time we read this visual novel, because it's a miracle that we all are here. 



Ever17 -The Out of Infinity- is undoubtedly the game of the month. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni makes the second masterpiece. But the world does not need yet another review of either of it, so I'll review Bokura ga Koko ni Iru Fushigi. which I also consider a masterpiece.

1. Beast 21 ~Ryoujoku no Yakata~ BEAST21 ~凌辱の館~ [020802] Birdy Soft
10 years ago the hero suddenly became plagued by strange nightmares. 
He remember something about a strange woman in an old mansion of his youth days.
Willing to discover the truth, the hero goes with his girlfriend to this mansion in a raining night.
"Birdy Soft" tries to recreate the spirit of original game. For that we choose of two heroines as lovers and investigate rooms to reveal the mystery - game story changes a lot with different girl. And the gameplay is akin to it - we search items in the rooms in order to use them later. Scenario is of zero level of quality. Of course it's a nukige, but was still curious to know how this "sequel" is made. 


2. Yami-iro no Douwa 闇色の童話 [020802] Candle
Main characters goes together with his university circle members on a training trip to a pension resort. They finally reach the place but what dark things await them inside.
Guro utsuge horror with friends dying all the time. Development is often forced, so it will probably only suit those seeking horror.


3. First Kiss☆Story II ~Anata ga Iru Kara~ ファーストKiss☆物語II 〜あなたがいるから〜 [020808] HuneX 1
A domineering father demands that his son join him in the family business but junior has other plans. To escape the tyranny and familial obligations, the young man runs away and settles in Amagi City located in Fukuoka Prefecture where he grew up. Once there, he proceeds to reunite with girls from his childhood as well as acquaint himself with new female targets, er friends, which may lead to love.
It's a direct sequel with love line of Kana to be realized here, so now she can be officially treated as main heroine of prequel. It starts as a comedy and has serious development later.


4. Bokura ga Koko ni Iru Fushigi. ぼくらがここにいるふしぎ。 [020809] FlyingShine 1
Shinichi Manabe attends Seiryo High School. His father is a writer. 5 years ago, Shinichi went to see a mysterious mirage with Mio Fukamachi and Tamako Fujiomi. Mio is one year older than Shinichi and acts like his mother, while Tamako loves old samurai movies and likes to hug.
The mirage really was mysterious, and they had a lot of fun. However, a week later, Mio tries to save a cat but ends up being killed. Shinichi hasn't seen a mirage since that fateful day.
One day, Tamako and Shinichi suddenly encounter another mirage. Shinichi pulls Tamako into the dense fog. Shinichi soon realizes that he is with Mio, not Tamako. He also realizes that instead of Mio, Tamako is dead. He asks himself, "Am I in a different world?" Looking for further clues, he flips through his album and finds many pictures he doesn't even recognize. He's now convinced that this isn't his world
Scenario is written by the same person who wrote Lien and homerically funny Konoha Challenge, so that's an instant stamp of quality. Story is nothing new, but it feels deeply lyrical and funny thanks to numerous gags. Capture order is fixed and that allows to construct a story-centered narration. Don't expect a real masterpiece here, but Arakawa fans will like the game.


5. Mizu no Kakera みずのかけら [020809] Io
"Please... please help me..."
"Please... look..."
"Look for the shrine...'
The story tells about a hero who suddenly received a letter from his cousin to be invited to their home.
He hears a mysterious voice of a girl and follows it...
A mysterious legend and a hidden truth comes out when the heroes join the journey to remember something that was forgotten until now.
The resolution to this samurai legend mystery comes really fast. There are a lot of heartwarming scenes. Nostalgia rural story does not really touch any strings in my heart.


6. Ryouki no Ori Dai 4 Shou 猟奇の檻 第4章 [020809] Penguin Works
After joining the manga research club with impure motives due to its female members the protagonist is now convinced to accept a job as a volunteer security staff at a manga convention that is said to receive 500.000 people over 5 days.
But trouble starts happening. A fire is started at a stand, a threatning letter is delivered to stop the event and then things start to escalate...
Place is now Comiket, and cage no longer feels bizarre in the way that crimes are much milder now and mystery weaker. Lots of cuties and laughter this time. What remains unchanged is high difficulty level with all this travelling around lots of places.


7. SinsAbell ~Hi Gureshi Sora no Tooku~ SinsAbell~緋昏し空の遠く~ [020809] Studio Miris
A wave of witch hunting struck a peaceful town 400 years ago. Among the burned victims was one girl, but the same night everlasting fire covered the whole town in flames.
Main character comes from a family of a legendary demon hunter. He was attacked by the evil spirit in his childhood, and now he continues his hunt for demons. 
One day an unmanned train with all the passengers disappeared appears on the TV. Protagonist's magical sight detects a demon of unprecedented scale. He sees an image of all the passengers burnt alive  - yes, just like witch hunting. 
Adventure with battles made in 3D fighting mode. Either boy or girl can be chosen as main hero. Story is quite heavy and decadent as most of acquaintances get killed in the story process. Quite a scary experimental work who can get through the combos and fighting flow.


8. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni ひぐらしのなく頃に [020810] 07th Expansion 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni takes place during June 1983, at a fictional rural village called Hinamizawa, which has a population of approximately 2000. The main character, Keiichi Maebara, moves to Hinamizawa and befriends his new classmates Rena Ryugu, Mion Sonozaki, Rika Furude, and Satoko Hojo. Keiichi joins their after-school club activities, which consist mostly of card and board games (and punishment games for the loser, usually him.) Hinamizawa appears to be a normal, peaceful, rural village to Keiichi. However, the tranquility abruptly ends after the annual Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro-sama. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the day of the Watanagashi Festival. Keiichi himself soon becomes drawn into the strange events surrounding the Watanagashi Festival and Oyashiro-sama. In each story arc, he or one of his friends become paranoid, and a crime is committed. Usually, the crime involves the murder of one of their own friends. While it seems impossible to tell their delusions apart from the mystery of Hinamizawa, slowly the truth is revealed.
Game is localized and there are English reviews.


9. Memorial Song メモリアルソング [020822] Vridge Inc. 1 2
The protagonist, whose name is entered by the player, is a high-school student. This game is trying to show how a song can awaken the memories of the past and tie them together. The story opens as you listen to a song on a CD and start reminiscing events from the past... and of course, all the girls you met.
There is a bit information in English, and that's all you'd want to know about this game.


10. Crank In -Soushunfu- クランクイン-早春賦- [020823] Hotchkiss 1
Keita Amamiya's dream is to become a movie director, and he's now studying hard to enter college. One day, he finds an 8mm movie camera at a recycle shop, "Kaikodo ? Memories House," 
that he's always wanted. He asks the owner, Shino, to sell it to him, but she won't; it's not for sale. 
However, she informs him that she will give the camera to the person she likes most. He'll do anything for that camera, and he takes on a job at her store to impress her.
There's just one, small problem; his cousin Mami Sashibe has already been admitted to college, 
and she's helping him with his studies. If she finds out about his job, she's going to be pissed! 
Even worse, a girl in hunting clothes suddenly shows up at the store and tries to get the camera.
Will he ever get his dream camera? Don't forget that Mami will try her best to screw everything up between the two. How about the girl in hunting clothes; what about Shino!? You've got to play this game to find out!!!
Short cheap work with low production values, also borderline eroge.


11. Galaxy Angel ギャラクシーエンジェル [020823] Broccoli 1 2 3 4
Galaxy Angels are from the "Special Guardian Division" and they work closely with the "Imperial Special Guards" and the "Satellite Defense Teams". They are the guardians of the White Moon, the sacred planet of the Transbaal Empire, and the personal protectors of the White Moon Goddess Shatoyan. The story begins with Prince Eonia attempting a take over of the Transbaal Empire with the aid of the mysterious Black Moon, counterpart to the White Moon. To counter Prince Eonia, the Angel-tai along with their flagship the Elsior are placed in the hands of the kind and ever-capable Commander Takuto Meyers.
There are English reviews.


12. Kaze no Uta 風ノ唄 [020823] Milksoft 1
The story takes place in a small rural area around the seaside town called Sakuragi-cho. The protagonist returns from Tokyo to spend the summer in a town which brings him a lot of nostalgic memories. But after being absent for so long, unaware about the current events in the town, the summer vacations may not be so carefree and relaxing as you expect them to be.
Story is heavy and all girls have either health or mental problems. Scenario is thin and development monotonous.


13. Ever17 -The Out of Infinity- Ever17 -The Out of Infinity- [020829] KID 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
Ever17 is the tale of seven individuals who come to be trapped 153 feet within the underwater marine theme park, LeMU. During an apparently normal day at the park, a massive accident happens, placing almost half of the facility underwater. The path to the surface and the communication lines are cut off. In addition, LeMU is under constant assault by severe water pressure, limiting time to find a means of escape to 119 hours. Escape is not the only concern, however; many questions arise as to the legitimacy of the accident and whether or not those trapped there were brought there for a purpose.
Game that does not need introduction - lots of reviews.


14. Aikagi ~Hidamari to Kanojo no Heyagi~ あいかぎ~ひだまりと彼女の部屋着~ [020830] F&C FC02
Takashi Murase lived an average live along his father but one day, he suddenly died in a car accident. Unable to live by himself, Takashi's homeroom teacher will start living in his house to take care of him - and her sister's joining this new family too! What will be of the three of them..?
Narrow view of the world, and same actions repeat over in over with cohabitation as main theme. Nothing special about this work.


15. Gonna Be?? Gonna Be?? [020830] Groover 1
The man is an agent for the ministry of research. No one knows his name, only his code name, "September." His main duties are spying overseas, but on return from an assignment, he is suddenly ordered to spy on students at an all-girls' school, "Akisui." He's not too happy about the situation, but orders are orders...
Disguised as "Shun Mishima," he becomes a teacher, where he runs into an ex-girlfriend who once betrayed him, "Miyuki Jinnai." She hands him a drug, and even though he's been burned by her before, he gulps it down... He changes into a "girl!!" She tells him, "You now have a free pass around the school..."
Why did the ministry send him to this all-girls' school anyway? With the ability to switch identities, will he be able to clear up the mystery at the school?
With their big hit, "Green-Green," Groover, will now try their hand at a "transsexual spy adventure" this summer. Many new innovations have been made to their system, and even the characters are more unique and interesting than their previous game!
Genre is self-defined as "Intrusive sex conversion spy adventure"? but in fact it's a complete bakage with weird characters. The story is single road with three consequent chapters, each with its own ending. Main character constantly changes from man to woman and each heroine has at least one H scene with him as a man and as a woman.


16. Gyakutama ぎゃくたま [020830] Discovery
Main character is always short for money since he's the only working member of the family after his mother death. He needs to pay the debt within a month or house will be taken for debts. He's very good in athletics, and because of that he gets a place at a super prestigious school. Since he can't get the money the proper way, he intends to get the money from naive rich ladies at school.
It's a very orthodox system. One month, three actions allowed per day and lots of girls to chase. Otherwise it's a normal moege with a comedy touch.


17. Himawari ひまわり [020830] Regrips
A small former mining village is almost fully destroyed by tsunami. Main character goes to teach in Tokyo, but eventually returns. He is greeted coldly by remaining villagers, and his heart shrinks even further. That is until he meets a girl.
Redundant system and scenario loopholes make reading painful. Three heroines stories look unrealistic.


18. Mizukabe みずかべ [020830] F&C FC01
Mizukabe is a direct sequel to one of the endings of the game Suigetsu. The game also includes wallpapers of Suigetsu.
Short game with straightforward scenario and just one heroine Nana for capture, but there also H scene for Kosaka sisters.


19. Re☆cycling Day's Re☆さいくりんぐDay’s [020830] Paprika
Main character is student who prepares for entrance exams. But he also has enough time to chase girls around him. Who will he live with during his college life?
A SIM game where girl choice depends on parameters value. Part-time jobs are also needed to buy physical strength items. Game's super boring because lack of events.




1. Mermaid no Kisetsu ~Curtain Call~ マーメイドの季節〜カーテンコール〜 [020801] Game Village 1
Curtain Call is a fan disc for the Mermaid no Kisetsu romance adventure visual novel.

2. Choukou Tenshi Escalayer 超昂天使エスカレイヤー [020802] Alice Soft 1 2

Upon seeing their advance forces, Sayuka rushed into a nearby back alley, where Kyouhei, having chased after her, found her absorbed in masturbation. He was so taken aback by this that he yelled in surprise, and Sayuka, having noticed his presence, immediately screamed in orgasm before being enveloped by a dazzling light that transformed her into Earth's mightiest warrior: the angelic Escalayer!
With her transformation complete, Sayuka soon drove away the army of Dai-Lust.
Having returned home, baffled by what he had seen, Kyouhei found himself being greeted by a girl named Madoka, who claimed to be a robot living with Sayuka. Madoka went on to explain that Sayuka acquired the necessary energy to transform into Escalayer and drive away Dai-Lust only by experiencing sexual arousal.
"I'm begging you, please make my heart beat fast!" said Sayuka to Kyouhei... and so their days of sex and war began. Their goal? The total defeat of Dai-Lust!

Foreword: RSR is the last big game of Sogna. I can't pass without saying farewell.

Title: Viper-RSR

Developer: Sogna

Date: 2002-07-31

VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v970

Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsrmSBbNUMM


Synopsis: A game that blends old school dungeon crawling along with animated cutscenes.

It is a dark age in the kingdom of Alitalia. Monsters ransack cities, slaughtering the men and taking the women as their slaves. Four adventurers set out to end the rampages...

Structure: 8 chapters 

Length: 3 hours.

Game type: Fantasy

Difficulty: None

Character Design rating: 10/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 3/10

Game quality: 8/10

Overall rating: 7/10


RSR is not a good game per se. RPG part is non-existing, purely decorational. Story is quite simple, without much fancy and with usual Sogna motives. So why is it different from all its previous big games?

RSR is revolutionary in the amount of efforts needed to reach animated H scenes - here it's done by introducing a map and characters moving through it very slowly while triggering hundreds of random fights, literally a fight each few steps.


Game is blamed for too high price of 9800 yen, too long time in development (it was planned to be released in 1999 and then was postponed many times - and it's the last game in Japanese game history to be released on diskettes as well with the number being 42 if I recall correctly), too short H scenes, absence of pure love scenes.

But what does it really shine for? First is main heroine Cala. She's the most sexy heroine ever created. For me that's a given, and can't be changed.


Secondly, only this game managed to raise monster insult appeal to the highs not yet imaginable. I do not know whether it's inner censor or lack of skill to blame, but there is no work in the whole genre even comparable to RSR.

I mentioned that story is weak, but what I liked is that story does not end with Cala saved. Story goes on to save princess Julieta. And I especially liked that the ending is orthodox viper, not like an ending everyone else would have.

So it's a contradictory game, but with battles cut it becomes the legendary eroge that changed history for me.



Viper-RSR is the only masterpiece of the month

1. Psychicer Mimi サイキッカー美々 [020705] Soubi Kenkyuujo
Main character is a genius young man. One day he has his psychic powers awoken in front of a female classmate. She agrees to help him train these powers with a series of exercises, but others think of them as usual lovers. Strange incidents start to happen at school - is it possible to investigate them with newly acquired powers?
Training is a form of H. There are three fields of supernatural studies, and investigation of the incidents depends on what power is mastered. Borderline half-baked game.


2. Shiroi Kiseki ~White Spur~ 白い軌跡 ~White Spur ~ [020705] Modern Times
Main character starts to live alone to attend a university in Tokyo. However, his mother asks his childhood friend who came to Tokyo one year earlier to take care of protagonist. When protagonist sets to go to a snowboard training camp, his childhood friend volunteers to accompany him.
It's a game with "Beginner", "Intermediate" and "Advanced" ski courses, so players are supposed to start over and over. But - luckily - they can't because of a critical bug that prevents reaching ending. Cool times.


3. Shirotsume Souwa -Episode of the Clovers- 白詰草話 -EPISODE OF THE CLOVERS- [020705] Littlewitch 1
Tokyo, year 2008. 
There is a mysterious group that experts from various fields gather. And Souji is the most outstanding researcher in the group, who researches about combat androids.

There is an English review.


4. Soukoku no Tsuki ~Aoku Kagayaku Tsuki no Yoru ni...~ 蒼刻の月~蒼ク輝ク月ノ夜ニ・・・~ [020705] Sight
Main character's parents die in a traffic accident, and he is invited to stay at his grandfather's place. One day girls arrive to live in the same mansion. Girls have the same circumstances as protagonist and, according to grandfather, are invited to live as protagonist's wife candidates.
This supposedly nice game has zero Japanese impressions, because zero originality moege from an unknown company can not be a nice game.


5. Alfred Gakuen Mamono Daitai アルフレッド学園魔物大隊 [020712] SofthouseChara
The protagonist is a resident of devil's world and wanted to became a teacher.
He finally managed to became a teacher and started teaching at Alfred Academy while living inside its night duty room. However, various mysterious cases started appearing one-by-one inside the academy, and he couldn't get a peaceful sleep. The source of this is that the academy is unnaturally overflowing with magic power. He called his subordinates from the devil's world and ordered them to recover the overflowing magic power. He feels the need to defend his position as a teacher.
Will he be able to resolve the mysterious cases while still remaining as a teacher?
Simulation game from Softhouse Chara.
Defend the academy at night, scare and exorcise the evil spirits that's possessing your students.
SofthouseChara keeps making weird mix of genre games. I need at least a normal RPG or tactical strategy to look into it.


6. Silvern ~Gin no Tsuki, Mayoi no Mori~ Silvern ~銀の月、迷いの森~ [020712] G-clef
Main character admires manly men, because he is often take for a slender a cute girl. He gets a job of female dormitory caretaker for a week by mistake. How will this week go?
New scenarios show up after each clear. First part is comical, second - serious. Scenario is inconsistent. Did you expect of trap moege something better?


7. Kamaitachi no Yoru 2 ~Kangokujima no Warabe Uta~ かまいたちの夜2 ~監獄島のわらべ唄~ [020718] Chunsoft 1 2
Abiko Takemaru, the creator of "Kamaitachi no Yoru" decides to invite all of the people he has based his characters on to his mansion on the otherwise deserted island of Mikadzuki. When they arrive they find themselves stuck on the island with their host inexplicably missing and an unknown culprit hunting down people according to an old song.
There is an English review.


8. Guren Tenshou -Shura- 紅蓮天衝―修羅― [020719] Zone 1
Guren Tenshou: Shura continues directly from where the original Guren ended. After the fateful battle with Yasha, a new threat appears: a blond young man who has apparently come from another time. Lee Rekka and his girl-only Guren brigade (now fully assembled) have to figure out why and how such a man ended up in medieval Japan, defeating more demons on the way.
Despite being a direct sequel story-wise, the gameplay in Shura has been greatly simplified, to the extent of not being a RPG any more. There are still turn-based battles, but they occur only against "boss" enemies, when the story dictates it, and involve little strategy but choosing the strongest attacks for all the characters. There are no experience points, no equipment, no items, and even no movement of any kind in the game - it just takes the player from place to place, allowing him only to click on the only available location on the map and occasionally slightly branch the story by making a decision.
Scenario was not a strong point of Guren, and now it's even more obvious when RPG part is excluded. Noone took responsibility for the scenario, because it's just a scam - full of inconsistencies and bad moves. It's also surprising that only 3 out of 5 heroines have H events. Game is sometimes called the main kusoge of 2002.


9. Kikou Juu Yuushi Sakigake 機甲銃勇士サキガケ [020719] Digital Monkey
22nd century. Global self-defense organization "the Outer Space Defense Force" is launched. 
Main character is its officer. He leads a happy yet slightly boring everyday life, but everything changes with the assault of unidentified "Seeker". By chance he takes command over battleship and starts his crusade.
There's strategy part and tactical land battles. Difficulty is moderate and can be lowered. Scenario is usual anime stuff. Some heroines can't be captured without latest patch.


10. Tantei Shounen A 探偵少年A [020719]  Foster 1
Many people are in trouble in the big city. "Shirokuma Investigations" set up office here years ago, and it has helped numerous people with their problems.
Akira is a student. He admires his energetic aunt, who runs "Shirokuma Investigations," and he's learned a lot from her. One day, his aunt suddenly disappears, leaving behind a note, "I'm going on a trip. Akira, please take care of my business." Suddenly, he's become the head manager in the investigation office!
With the assistance of two cute girls, Akira manages to solve cases. Will he be able to become a full-fledged investigator, in whom his aunt would be proud of? What kind of cases will he and his assistants encounter?
Game only takes 10 days, and there's small volume. The number of H events is high as usual, some 20 while the overall number of CG is just 65.


11. Aoi Umi no Tristia 蒼い海のトリスティア [020720] Kogado Studio 1
Tristia was a beautiful seaside town which slowly fell to ruin and dilapidation, following the invasion of the dragon ten years ago. The people of the town tried rebuilding the city in the hopes of attaining its former glory, but they failed. Hopeless, the people decided to send for Prospero Flanca, a legendary inventor who was well-known for revivifying many cities that were dying out. They received an answer from Prospero, but to their confusion, it was a girl who arrived to the port of the town. That girl was Nanoca, Prospero's granddaugther, and she is the one who was assigned to do the renovation project.

12. Rhythmic Rev リズミック・レヴ [020725] Extreme 1
The hero of this story was a former champion of the RRGP125cc class. He moved onto the 500cc, but suffered a serious accident that took him out of racing. Still having a passion for the sport, he now happily works as a motor sports journalist. RRGP stands for “Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix”…Yeah there are a few letters missing in that anagram. In any case, it’s a motorcycle race, and he’s been covering/supervising an all-girl race team on their way to the final race. They are actually a sub-division of his old race team that helped him win his races before the accident. They go by the name of “Brain Palette Junior Team” (don’t ask me where “brain palette” came from *shrugs*), and they’re staffed by many a hottie. Will these ladies be able to achieve what he could not?
AVG with three branches, each for two heroines. Six heroines overall. Polygons used to show race in order not to feel bored. Heroines lack personality.


13. Blue [020726] Caramel Box
The protagonist was a star basketball player, looking forward to a bright future as a sportsman.
But then he injures his right knee and the doctor's diagnosis turns out to be for him to refrain from hard exercise.
Two years later he has overcome the odds and partially recovered, once again being able to play basketball.
Even so, because of his measly height he isn't able to pursue a career in the sport he loves.
He regrets nothing and continues to attend school, hanging out with his friends.
What will happen the first summer he spends since quitting basketball...?
Six heroines with most being weak. Atmosphere is relaxed and overall pleasant. Quitting basketball depiction takes a lot of game time, but it's hardly relevant at all for the course of the game. Love comes suddenly, same as drama.


14. Court no Naka no Tenshi-tachi 2 ~Softball Hen~ コートの中の天使達2~ソフトボール編~ [020726] Pinpai
Main character is a gentle-minded lecturer who is ordered to supervise "Woman Softball Club" immediately after his arrival. He has to deal with withdrawal of almost all members after last coach spring training camp incident. Is restoring such club even possible?
AVG + raising SIM. Special training and games increase the bond. It's time to let franchise rest in peace already.


15. Ebenbourg no Kaze エーベンブルグの風 [020726] Studio e.go! 1
Claude was a poor scholar living in England, but is called back to become the Lord of Ronsard by a counselor known as Sophie. Claude's life begins anew with the fate of the city in his hands. But the exiled former lord Eric wants his power back and plans to assassinate Claude.
At his new home, Claude meets the lovely maid of the mansion, Mylene.
There is an English review.


16. Knot ~Kizuna no Mahou~ knot~絆の魔法~ [020726] feng
Main character became director of "The Study Group on Magic" school club. He needs to figure out why "magic" begins to intervene in this world.
It's a normal charage with the exception of mechanism of paranormal activity used in the later part of each route. When heroine is chosen, it goes down the single road. Climax comes too suddenly after series of everyday life scenes. So it's a moege without a normal story.


17. Mist -Second Edition- MiST-second edition- [020726] Regrips
Main character goes out on a trip with his five friends during summer vacations. In this picturesque mountain landscape he gets to know many secrets about his friends.
System is poor. There are three heroines with individual routes, but only main heroine route is somewhat impressive.


18. Musume Sanjou!! Doubutsuen. 娘³動物園~むすめさんじょう!!どうぶつえん。~ [020726] Panda House
Main character loses parents, but inherits a zoo after them. Soon he finds three cradles with girls on his doorstep. Girls grow up and help around the zoo even under constant danger of its closure.
Mostly a comedy with some incest vibe ("father" in H events).


19. PRIMO ~Amore e l'ordine di arrivo?~ PRIMO ~Amore e l'ordine di arrivo?~ [020726] Active 1
Takuma Hasebe is really unlucky! He loses his parents in an accident and his grandparents end up taking care of him. This might be a common tragic story, but it's not over yet! Even worse, his grandparents pass away! 
Fortunately, his lawyer informs him that a really nice person wants to adopt him. Of course, he takes up the offer. His new guardian is Grandma Machiyo. He enters Kuregashi School and finds out that Grandma Machiyo is a director at the school! 
One day, he asks her, "Why did you adopt me?" but she just says, "Don't worry." Full of anxiety, he ends up being the manager of the school. The job sucks; he's just a janitor! 
His busy schedule of school life and managing the school begins... 
There are three months to trigger all kinds of events as a classmate and as a janitor. Game's very short. There are large chunks of text common for multiple heroines. Only couple heartwarming heroines save the game to some extent.


20. Senkou Yuugeki Oukatai Yuri ~Denshi no Seirei-tachi~ 先攻遊撃桜花隊・YURI~電子の聖霊たち~ [020726] Ape & Frog
Continent is a battlefield between states. 
Alliance Forces defeat Imperial forces in decisive battle. Imperial army girl trained in secret arts becomes the last trump card for disjointed forces.
Training SIM, strategy, rpg-like growth and probably more. Story is attractive to some extent, but still weak. Rough system and bugs deteriorate the impression.


21. Sultan ~The Lovesong is Forever~ [020726] light 1
In a semi-fantasy world set in a sort of medieval time; our protagonist grew with his siblings and friends after their parents died. After many years surviving on the streets, they are met by a couple of people of soldiers who take them straight to the king. The king, upon reviewing them, tells our hero that he’ll be next in line to succeed the throne! It turns out the hero is the old man’s lost grandchild. Now the royal court is either up in arms about the new prince or frantically trying to find him a suitable candidate to be the future princess. Who of the lovely ladies will be chosen by you--or will you pick his childhood friend?
Good dialogues, but scenario is just ordinary court romance without originality. Since it's a charage, some girls are just better than the others. 


22. Sumeragi no Miko-tachi すめらぎの巫女たち [020726] D.O. 1
Tokyo, year 35 Taisho era. 
The organisation "Fuuma", established to maintain peace in the mortal realm, becomes aware of an aberration borne into the world. The evil god who once led a great army into battle with the holy gods but was thought to be defeated has revived once again. The identity of the reincarnated evil god's vessel is...
The protagonist Kitagawa Daisuke, an otherwise ordinary young man is abducted by a beautiful girl Kuroba Saya who then has sexual intercourse with him, which awakens Daisuke regarding his status as the evil god's incarnation as well as his abilities. Saya pleads with the awakened Daisuke to join her in crushing Fuuma, the holy god's shock troops. Now the millennia-old battle between light and darkness is about to reach a decisive conclusion
7 episodes with 5 being common route and the rest branching off to "god", "human" and "truth" routes. RPG part is unbalanced. Sumeragi looks up to Sakura Wars, but manages to create a thrilling story that's highly recommended for RPG enthusiasts.

Foreword: I was wondering what FC experimental branch (Dreamsoft) was capable of. Synopsis is quite fantasy-ish and girls with katana are featured, so I'm sold here.

Title: Asa no Konai Yoru ni Dakarete -Eternal Night-

Developer: DreamSoft

Date: 2002-06-28

VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v1205

Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooV-q4jSD9A&list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv-k2sH-Gg8wOnLUF96lDXAB


Synopsis: Main character dates his childhood friend. Days pass happily till a deformed body appears from the "gate of the other world" and kills childhood friend. Protagonists makes a contract with the evil god to revive her, but it's only beginning of the battle that approaches. Will night ever end?

Structure: 5 chapters

Length: 10 hours

Game type: Fantasy adventurer story

Difficulty: Very easy, branches are either dead ends or entrances to routes.

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 5/10

Story rating: 4/10

Game quality: 9/10

Overall rating: 6/10


I like honest games where cover and synopsis generally tell me what to expect from the game. But Eternal night is not such a game. Cover shows a girl with katana, and synopsis prepares us for battle with demons. So, what's this game actually about?

First of all, it's not about battles in any way. I gathered here all CG of characters with weapons. The only action scene of every chapter is at the end and takes roughly a minute. Katana is featured for the most time at the very beginning when young Misora sits in the warehouse hugging katana and not knowing what to do. That's your battle scenes.


So it must be a game about mystics and mythology? Not really, very few monsters ever show up, usually during the same battle scenes. The demon who kills Misora and who revives Misora upon establishing pact with Tatsuto is the VERY SAME demon. So there's same amount of mystics as of battles.

Oh, then it must be charage! There are four nice heroines in here! Not really. There's osanajimi main heroine Misara, absolute pervert who adores bullying Tamaki, mysterious weirdo librarian with supposedly magical powers Miyako and free-spirit experienced and lustful teacher Patricia. There are basically only one and a half normal characters to even start with!


So what's this game? Freaking nukige. First signs of it I noticed at getchu page. Non-nukige titles almost always have non-HCG on the game page, but this game did not. Masochist pervert as one of heroines kind of strengthened this idea. But final fifth chapter put all dots at the right places. Demon totally absorbs protagonist's personality and he just insults everyone everywhere for as long as he wants. What makes him come to senses in happy ending? Freaking deus ex machina. It just happens, what kind of explanations do you expect?

But I should not focus on negative sides only. Game has high production values, and I noticed it in game quality score. Lips are synched, CG are mostly beautiful, and there's a huge use of special effects, including some animated ones. Auto-reading is called "drama mode" not just because it's a cool name. The whole game is based on dialogues. And only Tatsuto is not voiced when he is the protagonist. I say "when", because a lot of scenes are seen from different than Tatsuto perspectives.


Let's touch game concept even if it's a bit late for that after all the conclusions have been made. There are five chapters with first four chapters focusing on each of four heroines. And nothing that happens during those chapters actually means anything, because at the end of those chapters gates open and we move forward. Intro ends with the same door opening. And fifth chapter basically starts with it. So why not just watch intro and then fifth chapter if nothing else matters? Oh, then we'd miss H events with each of the heroines, right.

I can't call "Eternal night" a bad game. It just deceived my expectations and failed to produce any significant story development. I hoped to see some scenario-centered narration, but I received something that's two grades worse than I expected - a nukige.



There are no masterpieces this month AGAIN. I hate D.C. ~Da Capo~ series so much that I'd literally prefer any game over those. It's time to pay credits to Purple Software and nominate Kanade as game of the month. For some reason I picked Asa no Konai Yoru ni Dakarete -Eternal Night- for review. Why? Oh, Why?

1. PINK PANZER [020607] Liar-soft
After decades of anarchy and dark times humanity regains its nation and civilization, but science, technology and cultural maturity return to basic levels. 
It's 50 years after the start of the "New World history", but Japan still has war with "Continental Union". Situation reaches stalemate after two years of active action, and only technological innovation can cause a breakthrough. 
Main character is appointed as platoon leader of the new weapons experimental unit. The subordinates are five amateur soldiers who are all women. The mission is to spread the new weapons technology with province regions, oppose guerilla forces and get the real picture of the battlefield spots. Protagonist has unlimited authority over his team, and it's up to him whether he brings up soldiers in spartan conditions or harasses his subordinates to satisfy own desires.
Scenario is quite fun in Liar-Soft way with multiple gags and serious moments, but bugs and horrible combat and strategy realization - it's basically a card game with parameters. Game idea remains unclear till the end, and the ending is forced.


2. Utakana うたかな [020607] Prima
Main character meets an unusual student who introduces herself as an angel.
After a while strange incidents involving girls start to happen at school. Then the angel girl comes to class as transfer student and joins the investigation. What's happening in this school...
It's a dark occult story. But protagonist awakens as spirit master and, to tell the truth, he becomes kinda OP. Period is relatively short, so it's surprising to see girls fall in love this fast. One playthrough is just 4 hours. There is cosplay and 3 H scenes for each heroine.


3. Yuki no Hana 雪の華 [020607] Raptor 1
During the sixteenth century, Japan is experiencing civil war. Even worse, monsters attack the Shimizu castle, where Seishiro Tachibana, a low ranking samurai warrior, serves. After barely escaping from one of these fiends, he hears that the princess of the castle, Natsu, has had a curse placed upon her. She is to become a sacrifice for reviving other monsters. Seishiro sets out on a journey to find a way to remove the princess's curse. During his trek, he encounters girls who help him find clues. He'll meet up with Shion, Rindou, and Kikumo. They learn that the ultimate monster, "Azami," is looting the entire country, in search for sacrifices to revive his fiendish clan.
The powerful daimyo "Tobusa" rises against the monsters to end the sacrifices causing all this turmoil.
Natsu has only two months to live. With the help of his comrades, will Seishiro be able to remove the curse and save her?
It's actually a story of fight against youkai with maximum of 4x4. Balance is ridiculous and luck-dependent, and losing main character is game over. There are four heroines and all bear flowers names. Story is orthodox and sober.


4. Bistro Cupid ビストロ・きゅーぴっと [020613] Success
The player takes control of a bistro in the Cinnamon Kingdom. During his job, he'll meet several girls.
Just some generic crappy SIM to fill the spot of the first XBOX visual novel.


5. Ama Tsumugu Norito 天紡ぐ祝詞 [020614] Hooksoft
People and gods live alongside each other, but gods start to lose their meaning. God hunters show up to destroy old gods.
Main character is born in such family and continues god hunting tradition even though the reason for it is drowned in time. One encounter with a girl makes him doubt his ideals.
Game is about main character questioning his society ideals and looking for answers independently by leaving the community. The scale of the story is limited to one usual person hesitations. The setting turns out to be much grander than realization, so game lacks impact.


6. Machine Maiden Next マシンメイデン・ネクスト [020621] Evolution
Development Company "Spiritual Enterprises".
Many android models have been created here, but research and development costs have risen enormously to go on on one's own. In such circumstances company receives a request from the military to produce battle robots.
If you had any doubts, military models are same good in sex as social models, so it's another pointless SIM-related development to beat around the same bush.


7. Yuibashi 結い橋 [020621] Windmill
A small town that has a legend about "angel coming down to this land" which serves as tourist attraction. This town is notorious for its stable climate. There is a festival here that happens once every 12 years. But as preparations get busy suddenly snow falls even though it is summer season. This year festival must be special...
Game takes place during the festival days. Twin sisters story is quite touching, but two remaining heroines stories are short and unimpressive.


8. Triangle Again トライアングル・アゲイン [020627] Kiki Co., Ltd. 1
Triangle Again games are often referred to as music adventures rather than typical visual novels in a way that when the branching in the story occurs, choices are presented in a way of notes rather than text. The game story is centered around young Akari Tateshina and her debut as a pop singer.
Some shoujo story, out of my league.


9. Asa no Konai Yoru ni Dakarete -Eternal Night- 朝の来ない夜に抱かれて -ETERNAL NIGHT- [020628] DreamSoft
Main character dates his childhood friend. Days pass happily till a deformed body appears from the "gate of the other world" and kills childhood friend. Protagonists makes a contract with the evil god to revive her, but it's only beginning of the battle that approaches. Will night ever end?
Game follows anime pattern presenting five episodes each starting with an opening. First four episodes are individual stories linked with the fifth episode. Thanks to this composition, intrigue persists till the end. Overall game feels short.


10. Brave Hearts ~Yuusha no Tamago-tachi~ Brave Hearts~勇者の卵たち~ [020628] Asobell
Main character enjoyed his life as second royal prince in a small country, but devil's assault changed everything. Protagonist lost his whole family and avenged them in battle with demon king.
Since then he lives in solitude in a remote forest. One day his former companion persistently invites protagonist to become teacher in his adventurers school.
We bring up girls as heroes in multiple disciplines, and make them participate in RPG-like battles. But weekends are free for chasing and dating girls. Boring stuff.


11. D.C. ~Da Capo~ D.C.~ダ・カーポ~ [020628] Circus 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
The game is centered around the protagonist, Asakura Jun'ichi, who lives on a fictional japanese island named Hatsunejima peacefully attending the local Kazami Academy. His childhood friend and cousin, Yoshino Sakura, returns to the island Hatsunejima after moving to America several years ago. Most of the main stories revolve around the magical unwilting sakura tree, it's powers and mystical connection to the main characters.
Game is localized and has many reviews.


12. I-Doll [020628] Image Craft
Main character joins an idol producer company to realize his old dream to make his childhood friend an idol. However, that childhood friend dies in an accident. He promises himself to realize some other girl's dream of becoming an idol instead.
Game widely uses animation and for this reason does not have CG gallery, just as Viper games. Game is surprisingly long and includes both good and bad endings. There are three main heroines and several side-heroines.


13. Innocent Hearts -Hitotsu ni Naritai- innocent hearts -ひとつになりたい- [020628] Aquarium
Unknown sealed letter arrives. It only contains a travel ticket for one person with the destination being the place protagonist's only childhood friend went out for a trip. A rural town visited only once. What's the truth about this invitation?
Game does not have impressions, but according to opening it's just a rural love story with strong ties to traditional culture like kimono, festivals etc. Aquarium presents "unique" in its ugliness character design, as always.


14. Kanade 奏 ~カナデ~ [020628] Purple Software 1
Yukiya Tanigawa was born with a weak constitution, and his doctors said he wouldn't reach his twentieth birthday. After his parents died in a traffic accident, his relatives thought of him only as a burden and became estranged to him. Only his cousin Kanae Mizumura and her father stayed to support him.
When Yukiya reached his 10th birthday, his condition started to change, and within a year, he was able to walk outside the hospital room. He was sent to "Kisaragi Hospital" to undergo rehabilitation.
With a new doctor, Masami Kisaragi, and a new nurse, Haruka Fujisawa, he begins his ordeal. Kazumi is Masami's little sister and Yukiya's classmate. She really helps him out a lot.
With the support of these people, Yukiya gradually becomes healthy. It's spring now, and he bids farewell to his long hospital life and sets out for college. He wishes he could help someone now...
Heroines routes open one by one, and only the last one is really fun. The main attraction point here is characters and dialogues. A decent charage in a while.


15. Lost Passage [020628] Deep Blue
Kyoto, the ancient capital.
A heavily traditional Japanese city separed from modern society. Akira Misaki, the hero, is a fourth year university student who is homecoming for teaching practice.
In his old town he meets many familiar faces. After some meeting and reunion with girls from his past, a big story begins to move, quietly .......
Work is prominent for a kind touch to Japanese history and mythology. Game resembles Campus the most. Overall scenario does not feel complete even though it has unique appeal. Just don't expect "education practice adventure" as box suggests, only two routes have this theme. 


16. Milkyway 2 [020628] Witch
Three years have passed. Main character falls in love with a girl who happens to be a clerk in coffee shop "Milkyway". He gets chosen out of 1200 competitors as the first male part-time worker here.
Game progress is very much similar to the prequel. If you liked the prequel, will like this one as well.


17. Shinkirou 心輝桜 [020628] Carriere 1
A sleepy little town in a remote corner of Japan is actually the front for a secret society devoted to the protection of a Sacred Tree capable of granting wishes to special people.
The male protagonist, Yuuya Furusaka, is a member of this group but, although blessed by the Tree with a healing power, the side effect of this gift only worsened the suffering that plagued most of his life.
But maybe even Yuuya can hope for lifelong solace and love by sharing his hidden torment with another distressed soul, if his own power doesn't destroy him first....
Setting is unique enough. Each of three main heroines has completely different route. Main character is a donkan here. Common route takes 3 episodes out of 8. A light work with cooperation as one of main themes.


18. Sore wa Maichiru Sakura no Youni それは舞い散る桜のように [020628] BasiL 1
Maito came back to his hometown and started living alone one year ago. He had spent his childhood there and was back for the first time in several years. He enjoyed his school life with his friends and the story starts when his new school year begins.... He will get to know something, lose something, and find something.... 
Game is famous for gags, but reaction to its humor can be different from person to person. Game's good at showing its best size to appeal to big number of players. However, heroines routes development is almost the same. Not sure modern player would be able to enjoy such kind of game same as in 2002.


19. Spiritual Bind ~Rakuen no Gen'ei~ Spiritual Bind~楽園の幻影~ [020628] Tryset
Main character investigates old school building with his friend to find the source of "curse mail". He is joined by some other students who want to find lost dog. Together they encounter paranormal activity that they need to oppose somehow, and strangers help them to overcome the danger. However, on the way back from building they get engulfed in darkness and appear in another world inhabited by hostile demons.
Some kind of board game with card battles. It's usually possible to either escape the trap or defeat boss in it.


20. Trouble Captor! とらかぷっ! [020628] Pulltop
Yomoyama town is an old spa town and has been developed recently. There is a traditional festival called "Yomoyama Dai Taisai" taken place once every sixty years. However, this festival has another aspect called "Kuro Harai", it is said that the God comes to smash monsters called "Kuro". The protagonist has just moved to this town and he is chosen to play a role of God's partner at the festival. He doesn't know what is happening but is forced to take part in the festival...
AVG with "easy SIM" part. In fact it's easy only when you get to understand it already. Before that it's hella confusing - it's fighting battles on bigger and bigger maps with more and more enemies. First half is a comedy while latter half is serious.

In addition to that, this game offers also a system of "magical (or rather medical)" items that could be bought at the beginning of each challenge. Those items could been used in game as "magic attacks", that modify the coincidental factors of the game to the players advantage.
2.) TRIAL MODE, that lets you select three out of twelve girls for a regular 4-players mahjong with japanese rules. By beating all 10 girls in the VS MODE, the TRIAL MODE becomes unlocked.

Foreword: Voiced protagonist has become deciding factor to choose Fearless] over Shitai o Arau. Fearless] also is a mystery to me structure-wise and story-wise.

Title: Fearless]

Synopsis: Azumi Shizuhara is an orphaned student attending Rakuryo Gakuin.

One rainy night, he finds a girl in the rain, soaked to the skin. The girl has scratches all over her body and blankly stares out at nothing. Azumi tries to ignore her, but suddenly realizes from the girl's uniform that she attends his school. He simply tells the girl to call police with her cell phone and leaves...

Later, this girl, Yuzu Sakurai, pleads with Azumi to help her search for her lost brother. Azumi turns her down once, but he finally agrees because Yuzu resembles his cousin, Nanao. The search for Yuzu's brother begins.

With the help of Sayoko, their search seems to be going fine until Azumi begins to feel the presence of someone else...

The story progresses with the mixed emotions of a girl with a lost brother and a boy who wants to protect his little sister.


Structure: 10 days

Length: 10 hours.

Game type: School occult horror mystery

Difficulty: Structure is difficult, but there aren't many choices, so it's average difficulty.

Character Design rating: 6/10

Protagonist rating: 7/10

Story rating: 6/10

Game quality: 5/10

Overall rating: 6/10

Fearless] is one hell of a weird game. Let's count its distinguishing features.

1. It's imouto game in the way that two only heroines are imoutos - Nanao is yours, and the other one Yuzu is looking for her lost onii-chan. 

2. It's a horror game since spontaneous horror scenes make up for the main attraction of the game, and there is Cthulhu element as monsters are really weird.


3. Main character is OP. When he asks Yuzu why she chose him - she answers that he's the only guy with fighting capabilities. She actually just listened to Nanao describing her onii-chan as the best, but protagonist is indeed one hell of a fighter - whether it comes to half a dozen of armed guards or primal beasts.

4. It's not really a game about girl appeal or about girl chasing. And that's what makes it different from other games. Nanao as imouto does not trigger any interest from her brother. And Yuzu... she's far from attracted. When she offers herself for the first time to protagonist, he's disgusted by her body engulfed in darkness. He asks himself why he is even doing it. Quite sure that H scenes can't be enjoyed in this game.


5. Structure is complex, but it all goes down to one same root that I recorded. Then it's possible to go towards trashy route with lots of insults. There are a lot of bad endings, but good ones include us with Yuzu alone, Yuzu recovering her onii-chan (not sure it's a good one though) and Nanao and Yuzu become sisters with us all a big family. But the gad endings are much more sophisticated up to the point everyone becomes sex slave or killed in lots of ways.

So Fearless] is totally weird. It does not have an intriguing integrative plot or appealing characters. What it only has is imouto stuff, OP protagonist who defeats any monster from Abyss in an instant, spontaneous horror/insult scenes and endings to fill everyone's wishes. Protagonist is voiced, but he does not talk that much. Backgrounds in this game are really simple. If that all manages to produce some kind of special atmosphere for you - it may be a curious game to play. But if not - it's utter trash.



There aren't masterpieces this month. I could not decide what to review myself. But in the end Akane Maniax has enough English reviews and Shitai o Arau is of quite familiar Silky's signature to me. I decided to play Fearless] . Akane Maniax is VN of the month even though I don't consider it a masterpiece either.

1. Akane Maniax ~Nagareboshi Densetsu Gouda~ アカネマニアックス~流れ星伝説剛田~ [020501] Age 1 2 3 
Jouji Gouda is a new transfer student at Hakuryo High School. On his first day of class, he fell in love at first sight for Akane Suzumiya and boldly proposed to her on the spot. The two characters conflict with each other greatly, but Jouji never gives up and would do anything to express his love towards Akane.
Although his attempts to win Akane's love at first do nothing but anger Akane, he gradually starts to make an impression on her, inspiring Akane to be more honest about her own feelings.
There are English reviews.


2. Fearless] [020510] Active 1
Azumi Shizuhara is an orphaned student attending Rakuryo Gakuin. 
One rainy night, he finds a girl in the rain, soaked to the skin. The girl has scratches all over her body and blankly stares out at nothing. Azumi tries to ignore her, but suddenly realizes from the girl's uniform that she attends his school. He simply tells the girl to call police with her cell phone and leaves...
Later, this girl, Yuzu Sakurai, pleads with Azumi to help her search for her lost brother. Azumi turns her down once, but he finally agrees because Yuzu resembles his cousin, Nanao. The search for Yuzu's brother begins.
With the help of Sayoko, their search seems to be going fine until Azumi begins to feel the presence of someone else...
The story progresses with the mixed emotions of a girl with a lost brother and a boy who wants to protect his little sister.
The synopsis is quite normal, so I should elaborate on what's wrong with it instead of just blocking. The whole brother investigation is sneaking and triggering insult situations at times. But there are a lot of unusual events encountered, including comical ones. There's a lot of mystery, and scenario is actually a strong side here. Game gets fairly high scores from the Japanese, so I'm reviewing it myself.


3. Shin Ai 神愛 ~Shin ai~ [020510] Cyc 1
Every night, the hero has a strange dream.
"Help me ... Help me please ..." - says a mysterious girl on your dream.
Her voice looks familiar. You think you know that voice, but can't remember. A friend gives to you an incomplete album. Somehow, the photos were removed. Looking every page in a hurry, you find three attached photos of strangers on the last page. There is a different landscape on each photo. The last one is one of a flowery desert garden, and one of a green meadow.
When you picked up one gently, ... suddenly everything flashes.
Stories are unfolded in two worlds. In real world, Toru falls in love with a girl, and in the other world, he protects the heroine. 'Pictures' are key items. You'll be able to enter the other world by using them. Try to collect pictures in the real world! You also have to be careful about the timing because if you miss getting a picture at the right time, you'll miss some events! In the real world, you'll up meet with four girls: 'Minori' and 'Aya,' your classmates, 'Sara,' your senior, and 'Yuri,' a younger student. In the other world, you will protect four girls: the maiden 'Minori,' 'Iris,' the fighter, 'Sara,' the religious girl, and 'Lily,' the nun. Why does Toru have to live in two different worlds? Who's the girl calling for help in his dream? Solve the mysteries by going through lots of adventures!
Game is about constant travel between real world where pictures are gathered and three different worlds where events are triggered. Setting is good, but walkthrough is quite painful. Cyc is known for introducing fresh game elements each time, so it appeal to those who like experiments.


4. Akagawa Jirou Mystery: Tsuki no Hikari ~Shizumeru Kane no Satsujin~ 赤川次郎ミステリー月の光  ~沈める鐘の殺人~ [020523] Victor Interactive Software 1
Based on the novel by Akagawa Jirou, the story puts you in a role of a high-school teacher who due to a painful breakup leaves his old workplace and comes to a far away place to start a new job at Bell Garden school. While taking a stroll, a woman's scream is heard... you run to see what is happening, and the mystery begins. You can select main character to be a man or a woman, which slightly influences the game scenario (when the player is a man, his partner will be a woman and vice-versa).
Game progress advances as a mystery novel. As the case becomes obvious you will investigate and use deductive skills to find out the culprit and the motive behind the crime. During the gameplay you can visit various places and check the map of the Bell Garden school and its surroundings. During investigation and story progress, you will use a character correlation diagram to connect a certain person with the matter at hand. Also, the diagram can be used to make relations between characters (for example to mark them as lovers). Story can have more endings, depending on the player's deduction and skills to solve the case. After a solved case, if available, a new scenario will open.
The third work in the series of book adaptations. Those who liked previous works would probably like this one.


5. Ethos ~Tenshi no Furu Basho~ Ethos~天使の降る場所~ [020524] Forte
Main character meets a mysterious girl in strange clothes during his part-time job. She turns out to be an angel who now sheds her light to the people. So their unusual cohabitation begins. 
Game period is from 1 month to 2 months, and simultaneous capture is possible up to middle stages. Game is focused on the angel girl, so other routes feel redundant.


6. Hayashi Meisaku Gekijou ハヤシ迷作劇場 [020524] Hayashigumi
The protagonist is a young shepherd in a certain rural village.
One day, while he was feeding the lambs on his daily duties, he discovered a girl unconscious on the mountain trail and nursed her back to health. After a while, this girl, named "Lina", finally awoke. She had apparently become separated from her mother and was searching for her. The protagonist took pity on poor Lina, and let her stay at his home until she felt better...
After several days, Lina decided to set out on her journey again. Feeling that he couldn't leave her alone, the protagonist decided to go with her. Will Lina be able to safely find her mother?
The feature of the game is that choices determine personality of Lina, and the essence of the game in the violent Lina. There are also other characters that usually show up and disappear as single episodes. Story development is good, but ending is abrupt. H scenes are quite frequent.


7. Hissatsu! Satomi Attack! 必殺!さとみアタック! [020524] TinkerBell
In 20XX mysterious creatures "Noum" start to invade the Earth from space. These are virus-like micro-organisms that can turn into various forms depending on affected creature.
Main character attends a his health teacher Natsuki dojo to compete with his childhood friend Satomi. Natsuki is the only survivor of battle with Noum that happened 10 years ago. His extraordinary skills are passed to his students who must oppose new invasion.
Never expected to ever unblock a TinkerBell game, but here it is. Battles are difficult since favorite girls needs to be hit as little as possible and should possible stay close to protagonist to gain favorability. HP can only be recovered with help of one one character, so no ruthless actions are allowed. But there's very vague story - all girl choices are evident.


8. Itsuka, Dokoka de ~Ano Ameoto no Kioku~ いつか、どこかで ~あの雨音の記憶~ [020524] BeF 1
Spring of 2002.
Naoto Sodeyama is an Interviewee of a research company. At the time of joining, his first job is to make a research for a travel company. 
His destination is the very village from where he lived and fled from, the place where something bad happened to him when he was a kid.
Now is the time to go face to face with his past at that small mountain village. 
Bef is true to itself - character with phobia is featured, plus new elements introduced like this "Behavior selection" and "Call-out-mode" system which enables to call out characters at certain points in the game. So overall there are cases of different behavior prepared, but one playthrough becomes very short. But who would want to check out outcomes of different behavior?


9. Nursery Song [020524] Cronus
20 years ago, a boy (our hero) was sent to a hospital. While hospitalized, he met a nurse and became completely indebted to her in the short time that they were together. He then made a promise to himself to become a doctor so that he could one day work alongside her. Now our hero has just graduated, and now works at the very same hospital. However, the nurse from long ago is nowhere to be found. On the other hand, he now works alongside a trio of beautiful new nurses, as well as the surprisingly attractive senior staff. You can actively explore the hospital to pick which of the various women our hero will meet. Perhaps, within his coworkers, you'll find hints of the lost woman from his memories.
Borderline game with some 60% being pure love moege and 40% nukige. Most H scenes are delusion ones. Chiharu mystery is hidden in different heroines ED, but some have nothing to do with Chiharu.


10. Konohana 2 ~Todokanai Requiem~ 此花2 〜届かないレクイエム〜 [020530] Vridge Inc. 1 2
Meguru Momoi, a second-year student at Konohana high-school returns in another murder mystery adventure. He gained status of recognition after the infamous Grim Reaper murder mystery in the original game. Everything's back to normal, or so everybody thought, until one morning on their way to school, Meguru Momoi and his partner, Miako Tachibana, arrive only to see police cordoning the area of what appears to be a murder case. Thus they end up entangled in yet another series of murders case.
New bullet in the low cost series. However, cost has jumped from 2800 yen to 3800 yen while the quality remains roughly the same. Same mystery killings, same comedy in interaction. Relatively easy and short.


11. Natsuiro no Sunadokei 夏色の砂時計 [020530] Princess Soft 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
The story revolves around a Japanese sophomore named Kotaro Makimura. As the school year ends and summer vacation approaches, he decides to admit his feelings to his crush, the beautiful Kaho Serizawa. As hopeless as the situation looks to his best friends Ai and Takeshi, he is determined to make Kaho his girlfriend by the end of summer vacation. However, on his way home, he has a collision with a mysterious stranger, and ends up getting covered in a strange multi-colored powder. When he wakes up the next day, he finds himself waking up on September 1st - the first day of the next school year. He also learns that Kaho, who had been his girlfriend, had died in a car accident. Eventually, Kotaro discovers that he has begun day-dropping, in which he skips days, and goes back and forth in time through different days of the summer vacation. With the help of Ligene the Time Patroller (also translated as Lee Jane), Kotaro must win Kaho's heart and prevent her tragic death before he runs out of time.
Game is localized and has lots of reviews.


12. Floralia Floralia ~フローラリア~ [020531] Xuse
Our protagonist Yosuke Tachibana is a kind second year in Aohisashi Academy who likes to take care of flowers.
However, his average life is turned upside down when his sister-like childhood friend Suzune Asou is appointed as a teacher in his school. What's more, she'll live in his house?
Soon they'll be joined by director's daughter Maki Izumi and chemistry teacher Shino Sakurai. 
Will he succumb to his teachers' temptation...?
Three classmates and three teachers are available for seduction. Work famous for moe eroticism. Eroticism is achieved by borderline situations and horny voicing while there aren't too many orthodox H events. It all ends in a harem route, so it fits pretty much all the modern moege stamps.


13. Genome ~Shinka no Idenshi o Sagase~ GeNOME~進化の遺伝子を探せ~ [020531] Ast
Main character is the third year student of agriculture faculty. General education process ends, and it is finally time to enter the laboratory. Under guidance of the laboratory adviser he will need to repeat genetic research with partners from the same laboratory to create new life.
There are 7 routes, but each contains only three events. It's enough to combine 8 pairs to trigger credits. With such length it's hardly a game, more of CG collection.


14. Shitai o Arau 肢体を洗う [020531] Silky's 1 2
~The smell of formalin that tempts you into the world of ero~
Yasaka was a poor student who wanted to become a doctor but couldn't afford medical college. He was studying for the entrance exam next year while working part-time in a university hospital. However, he was suddenly fired from his part-time job by the vice-director, Tsuyuzaki Chigusa. He was shocked by this sudden event, so she gives him the only option he has left to continue working in the hospital. The work she prepared for him is called… “Corpse Washing”. 
He will learn based on real experience and mental shock at work. In normal life, it's not possible to understand what “Corpse Washing” is. It is only possible by “being thrown out of daily life, into an unusual life, and having his mental state change”. That is “Corpse Washing”.
New experimental work of Silky's is based on real experience by author ... corpse washing. But the content is of horror and madness. The second half gets to do much more with the drugs and pretty much nothing with corpse washing. Dark and unusual work.


15. Trouble Busters トラブル バスターズ [020531] spiel 1
Shuichi is a new history teacher at Mitarai. The story begins as he is suddenly put in charge of the school's mystery club. The club used to be called the occult research club but was forced to downsize because of numerous scandals. 
Shuichi feels something is fishy about the club and regrets being called as the advisor as he starts hearing rumors. The vice principal also threatens Shuichi that if something bad happens, he must take full responsibility! Shuichi feels extremely uneasy about his career. One day, a student shows up and tells that she has a request to the club...
This is a slapstick comedy of problematic students and a new teacher, who struggles to gets his normal life back. This game is an orthodox adventure game, however, the first and latter parts have completely different stories. In the first half, the player tries to get close to girls. Later on, you choose one of the girl characters and explore a story, which is tailored to each specific character.
School love comedy. The main part is really funny. The girl stories are too monotonous to try other ones. H events show up suddenly which ruins atmosphere. Game is pretty much impossible to find now.


16. Univ ~Ai Omatase~ univ ~愛・おまたせっ~ [020531] Cocktail Soft
Student life enters its climax period - third and fourth years of university. This is your chance to find true love!
As usual, Cocktail Soft games don't bother with a synopsis presenting the very generic story that anyone can sympathize to. First work included 1st and 2nd years, this work - 3rd and 4th years. System is is typical dating SIM - stalk girls, talk to them, bring them presents etc. As usual with Cocktail Soft - game for those who likes the process, girls or CG.


17. Tears 9, 10 [0205] Team D.T.R. 1 2
Tears - "Nine, ten" is a visual novel that tells the story of a girl with nine fingers and a boy with ten fingers. A story about our lives, human rights, laws, relationships, and dreams in the face of economic imbalances. Their short but intense encounters and stories will impress you a lot. 
Game's released on Steam, so has abundance of reviews.


1. Elfeena ~Yoru e to Urareta Oukoku de...~ エルフィーナ~淫夜へと売られた王国で…~ [020503] Ail 1

2. First Anchor FIRST ANCHOR ~ファーストアンカー~ [020503] Forst 1 2
In the near future, human beings managed to reach Mars and to colonize it. However, during the last 25 years the relationship between Earth and Martian colonists has worsened. An expedition is sent to Mars for scientific and training purposes, with the crew consisting of young students. On the way, they discover an abandoned warship and decide to investigate it. This is where their adventure begins...
First Anchor is a Japanese-style adventure game, without puzzles. Unlike most games of this kind, there is real time movement in a 3D environment here. However, most locations and events are displayed as still pre-rendered images. Only the sex scenes are shown as animated 3D movies. The gameplay consists of navigating your character through the ship. The choice of the next location you go to might influence the story line.

8. Suzune-tan to Ofuro 鈴音たんとお風呂 [020510] Ichigo Milk 1
The fan disk for our 2000 release of Close2U -Saigo no Natsuyasumi is finally here!

Foreword: A bad-ass cover and cyberpunk setting is all that it took to interest me.

Title: D.U.O. ~Song for All~

Developer: Panda House

Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ttjs7mdDS3Q&list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv_0xb07WK6DgqoNosWs_kET


Synopsis: It happened on December 25, 2001, right after the new century began.

It was the biggest and worst disaster in human history, "Apoptosis Crisis."

A virus called "apoptosis" begins to destroy human cells. 80% of the Earth's population is killed and the people who survive try their best to revive civilization.

A century has passed, and it is now the year 2099 in Tokyo. Something is happening in this big city, where many kinds of ethnic groups reside. The network junkies, called "jugglers," suddenly die an unnatural death. The cause of death is still unclear. However, it is apparent they were all on computer networks when they died.

Takuya Takahashi, who is a professional investigator, a "Runner," is asked to investigate the case, and he starts investigating this dangerous disease, without even knowing much about it?


Structure: 12+1 chapters.

Length: 7 hours for one route, but second route is almost the same.

Game type: Cyberpunk detective mystery

Difficulty: Easy, we move on if exhaust all options

Character Design rating: 9/10

Protagonist rating: 10/10

Story rating: 9/10

Game quality: 10/10

Overall rating: 9/10

Rating comments: The only question for me is whether it's 9 or 10. I totally like the game, but story overall and the heroines in particular appear to me with flaws.


Protagonist: Takuya is great. He has face and hard-boiled personality. At the same time, not everything is clear about his personality that happens to content quite the depth.

Characters: Hitomi and Itsumi are main heroines of the game. These is also mysterious girl Sophia that exists for plot purposes. Can't say anything bad about Hitomi or Itsumi, it's just sad that the difference in their "routes" is just choice of who to H, not much character development.


Story: Synopsis actually covers all I could tell. I can only hint that story tackles genetic and cyberspace a lot. I'd really like it to be more focused on actual  virus and deaths, but most of the time we just hang around with girls stumbling upon important events at times, so resolution feels forced.

CG: Loving CG here. Lots of motion in the interface. I especially appreciate those several animated moments used for underlining charm of the heroines, and NOT in H events.


Sound: Game is called "song for all" not for nothing. There are a lot of vocal parts in here. Very enjoyable. Everyone but protagonist is voiced, and that includes all the male characters.

Thoughts:  The title "D.U.O. ~song for all~" contains two spoilers itself, but luckily you only get to know why late in the game, so there is that "a-ha" moment. No idea what "D.U.O" stands for, but the word "duo" already gives an important hint. I really appreciate when title gets to say so many things about the game.


Overall comments: Absolutely magical game. Great direction and use of interface make an impression of a futuristic world, can't really believe game dates back to 2002. I was treating Cat's Pro quite favorably, and it's joyous for me to see Heart Heat Girls concept being reborn in such way by the successor Panda House. Game's very nice while it lasts, but it's quite gentle-minded and lacks impact, so it gets average or poor scores by the Japanese. I absolutely can't understand how the Japanese manage to bury the best representatives of the genre with their own hands.



D.U.O. ~Song for All~ is the VN of the Month Among masterpieces are One 2 ~Eien no Yakusoku~ , Suigetsu and Utawarerumono

1. Trans' ~Boku to Atashi no Kyoukaisen~ Trans’~僕とあたしの境界線~ [020404] Catear 1
Main character has to wear his lover's clothes after Christmas Eve night. Somehow he likes wearing that dress and starts to improve his makeup and clothes to become more beautiful. This way can bring him to wearing a wedding dress, a SM outfit or even become an idol.
I have not invented a category to block Trans all-age games, but it does not mean I'm going to look into it because of that.


2. Ripple ~Blue Seal e Youkoso~ Ripple~ブルーシールへようこそっ~ [020405] Giga
Main character looses a job and applies for an internet ad vacancy to work at a huge leisure park "Blue Seal" with multiple facilities including restaurant. There are many curious girls working around.
A SIM game to raise protagonist's parameters and set dates. Combined to Giga failure as VN maker, game's a total crap.


3. Wish ~Owari Yuku Sekai de~ Wish~終わりゆく世界で~ [020405] Selfish 1
The year is 20xx... A new life form called a "Mamono" has suddenly appeared in Japan.
With great sacrifice, the Japanese government finally succeeds in retrieving a part of this "Mamono." Of course, it's kept secret from the general public and all evidence is eliminated...
Soon after, the government takes a few civilian scientists and begins a top-secret mission called "Project HI" (Project Human Infinity). The project's purpose is to somehow inject the unknown virus from the "Mamono," which will give the subjects super powers. The goal is to create a human that will withstand any kind of environment, which will then be used as a lethal weapon. Knowing the project might fail, the government simultaneously creates a militia known as the "Witch Hunters."
Minoru Yamanashi's father was one of the scientists involved in this project. He's so crazy that he submits not only himself but also Minoru's sister Chisa to the "Project HI" experiments. Unfortunately, the experiment on Chisa fails, and she falls ill with the virus. Not having the kind of money to save his sister, he decides to join the "Witch Hunters." He ends up killing his beloved sister. Losing the will to live, he wanders aimlessly around the streets and eventually crumbles with hunger. A girl named Yukari Arisa saves him from the streets...
Heroines are unique and lively. The first half is hero gradually healing his mind wounds with a touch of comedy, but in the second part there is serious development. There is only common scenario during first play. From the second play there are heroine scenarios that show up. Surprisingly well done scenario-oriented suspense adventure.


4. Koi Suru Science 恋するサイエンス [020412] Complet's 1
Hiroshi Koizumi is a student at Oshima Private School. One day, he receives an invitation to the science club from a girl named Sakura Sakura.

However, as soon as Hiroshi opens the door to the club, he loses consciousness...
When he comes to, Hiroshi finds himself on an operating table. He sees a small girl holding an old book. She's trying to experiment on him! What's going to happen on him!? 
You will witness mysterious experiments, battles over the old book, and expectations of love in this love comedy.
This game might look like a comedy... but in the end it's still a nukige with everything whirling around it. There are hardly any other advantages.


5. Maid Hunter Zero One ~Nora Maid~ メイドハンター零一~のらメイド~ [020412] Studio Jikkenshitsu 1
Reiichi Satsukido is a noncareer public employee, leading a peaceful life. One day, he is suddenly assigned to become a special national agent called 'Maid Hunter!'

Otherwise, he will be demoted and sent to an uninhabited island. Will he succeed in his mission and avoid spending the rest of his life on a deserted island...!?
Parody is the dominating feature of this game. But there are a lot of confusing systems in this bakage, including battle system. 


6. Wasurenagusa ~Forget-me-Not~ 忘レナ草~Forget-me-Not~ [020412] Unison Shift
A story about a boy that is destined to die, a shinigami that is given the task of taking his soul and the people he is connected...
Period is 2 weeks. During daytime we deepen relations with the chosen heroine, during night time we entertain the heroine. Period feels too small, relations develop untruthfully, with sudden climax.

You will definitely find an Elfan to suit your tastes!!
Befriend the Elfans and defeat the evil Net Kizer!
Quite a strange bakage with battles and lolis.

The case is not over yet...

The street musician from the first title, Chiaki Aikawa, is now a professional singer, but she is having problems with her career and with a band member who uses Blue Seal.
Aya Shirahama is a lovely girl, who happens to know Yuji, but she often causes trouble for Yuji. 
Misa Sugasawa is a sharp and beautiful legal officer, who has experience in foreign legal services.
Players will find many other beauties, along with many hot scenes. Get the bad guys and bring peace back to the town of Jissoji!!
Of course game is better than it predecessor 4 years ago, but it does not mean it's good. Main character and realism are praiseworthy, but concept, scenario and realization aren't.

Demons are actually real. They can take human form and infiltrate human society. 
Main character studies at a mission-based school in Yokohama that's rumored to contain hand of a legendary demon in its basement. There are various forces trying to revive the demon. Can protagonist prevent that?

With that, the protagonist met and parted with those girls repeatedly at the island. And with each of them, conversations are being spinned into stories.
There is enough English information.

Most of us enjoy our lives and don't think about death until something happens to us. Through this game, you'll realize that death is always just a step away...
The best scenario out of three 426 works, but it suffers from the lack of volume, so it's difficult to empathize with characters that weren't given enough screen time. There are several endings. Game was sold for just 1/3 of normal price.

Looks like my type of game. I'll review it myself.

Nice heartwarming story, but short - 5 hours is enough to clear. Only one heroine route is special, all the others are unnoticeable.

BaseSon had a difficult task to make a remake worthy of famous original, and they actually succeeded at it. There are 5 + 1 secret heroine routes, and each route has something to do with vanishing or loosing. The whole concept of eternal world is focused too much here and there are questions about length, but it's definitely a masterpiece as a pure love game with a good scenario.

Satou Mamoru has always dreamt of becoming a famous patissier. However, the famous school he wanted to enter in... is actually an all-girls school! Mamoru will have to disguise himself as a girl in order to enter and starts meeting some interesting girls.
Game's short and of relatively low quality, that's why it's sold several times lower than normal price. Still as a charage or a game about shemale it's quite good.

Game got only two votes on VNDB - that's 2 and 4, but that's probably some haters or trolls, right? Or perhaps they were disappointed by H scenes - but we're here for the story, so we move on.

The start up to the opening is usually the most lively part of any visual novel, but it was not that much lively for DoNoR. It was mostly dialogues with just couple of CG with people, the other CG were blurry zoomed in versions of real time photos of some objects like door bulb or telephone. Then happened pretty cool opening featuring as many as four different people armed with guns.


But then I understood that the biginning WAS the most lively part in DoNoR as well. What awaited me next is over 10 hours of watching horrible blurry CG of real life photos, walls of NVL text and and almost total absence of dialogues. It's been four years since FlyingShine first amateur attempts of Sadistic medicine and Revolver, but not that much has changed since then! It's same blurry real life photos, same NVL, same absence of sprites and CG with people. Hell, even HCG look exactly the same - disgusting and from the same angle in order to take as much screen space with body parts as possible. What's only changed is engine that can actually run on modern OS, rare non-HCG with people and introduction of "Auto pilot" reading mode. And even that they managed to screw - at the lowest speed auto reading is too fast and absolutely not comfortable for the absence of delays between the lines.


But let's drop these technical issues and enjoy the fabulous plot... yet we can't do that. The "Buddy system" makes the story jump to and fro between a lot of people without showing them on the screen or giving their names or at least anything to identify them apart of rare female voicing and location and time announcements. I don't really know how to rate the story. For 10 hours pretty much nothing happened, then couple hours of constant gunfire with very random H evens inserted here and there. Game provides a lot of cool CG, but they have very little to do with reality as 99% of the time you see only some hyper-zoomed blurry CG of rendered object from reality, and that's a very depressing sight. Gunfire keeps ringing, and you only see the corner of some table or just one of car lights. Story is absolutely kinetic, so no interactivity is prepared as well. In couple words, DoNoR is an organization that is involved in illegal transportation of organs and genetic studies. And most of the game is about the detective agency conflict with DoNoR organization forces shown from the sides of different detective agency members.


But when the painful 12 hour narration finally ended... it turned out that there are two more same length episodes. The first episode only covers only mostly Shoichi story, and that story features a variety of female partners. The second episode focuses on female detective Futaba, and that's the route full of insult scenes of Futaba and earlier kidnapped girl. The third final episode features only a Tower, and that's a bit shorter route that has just one H scene and that puts all the points of views together and presents the culmination and the end of the story.


As a short summary, game looks really bad not because of H scenes, but because of direction, pacing and graphic aspects, as well as poor systems. It's very painful to read and follow due to the mess that's set on the screen. It manages to ruin all the benefits of visual novel as medium and provides a "B" rate book novel with rare voiced lines instead. Oh, yeah... the theme of guns is really well covered in here. And that passion is really stunning. If only blurred images did not make my eyes peel off...



Kikokugai - The Cyber Slayer and Subete ga F ni Naru ~The Perfect Insider~ are masterpieces, but only the former is the winner. I'll be reviewing Donor - Onna Tantei Ryoujoku

1. Sister Angel しすたぁエンジェル [020301] TerraLunar
Main character loses his memory in an accident. After being discharged from the hospital, he starts to live with his self-proclaimed sister. Hero regains his memory while in contact with her. 
And at some point the feelings of the two go beyond the scope of the brother and sister. 
However, their peaceful life gets interrupted when a girl from the rich family and a Maid Robo girl move in...
A very funny comedy. Routes with all four heroines move in a light fantasy way. There are four heroines and six endings. There is not much seriousness in the game. A must have in sister lover collection and a worthy candidate if you like comedy.


2. Donor - Onna Tantei Ryoujoku DoNoR 女探偵凌辱 [020308] FlyingShine 1

This game runs on a system called, "The Buddy System." This means that there are multiple characters and multiple scenarios, where each character has it's own story. In order to understand the complete story, you have to go through each character's story. Besides our heroine, you will meet Chiya, Aya, Shihomi, and Mio. Take out your sexual desires on these beautiful but strong girls.
I know it's an early FlyingShine game about insults, but it's woman with a gun! That rule can not be easily overlooked, so I'm reviewing it myself (party because it's EVE like world and system) 


3. Sakura no Ki Shita de 桜の木下で [020308] Words
Main character loves to watch Hanami - Sakura petals fall - with his mother every year. But his mother dies, and he sits under sakura tree alone in grief.
A girl approaches him asking what he was doing. From that encounter protagonist's mind started to heal
Ten years have passed. He and that girl Suzuna attend the same class. He receives a letter from Suzuna telling "I want to love". He's puzzled by the contents and former sadness returns to him. It's time for new memories to be forged under a sakura tree.
Four heroines. Each route is smaller than usual. Scenario is slippery in words and leaves only dissatisfaction and weirdness feeling. At least it's not a full price game.


4. Maokko Crisis まお~っ娘クライシス [020315] Scramble House
Main character was relaxing on the grass when a girl descended from the skies. 
"I'm a demon, can I destroy this world?" 
It was his first encounter with Miu.
Love comedy with four heroines. Each day demon king Miu gives girls artifacts of the doomsday. Successful intimacy with the needed girl in the night allows to acquire artifacts and destroy them preventing the end of the world. Such situations continues eternally until clear conditions are meed, and those conditions are very severe, so not many players were able to fulfill them.


5. Valentine Memories ~Mai Furu Yuki no Naka de~ Valentine Memories ~舞い降る雪の中で~ [020315] Sight
Lively main heroine studies diligently in order to enter the same school as her beloved calm brother-in-law. Finally she succeeds, and it's time for rest on Valentine's day.
Lots of typos and no voicing, so it's usually not clear who's talking. Horrible system and low quality graphics (though event CG are good). It's easy to get in endless loop. Text render speed is slow, so common route gets tiring, then there's sudden climax and the end.


6. Sakura Taisen 4 ~Koiseyo Otome~ サクラ大戦4 ~恋せよ乙女~ [020321] Sega 1 2 3 4
Oogami Ichirou returns to Japan after having defeated the evil that threatened Paris. Something is once again wrong in the Imperial Capital, as two street cars go berserk without any reason, saved only by the mech-commanding girls of the Hanagumi Brigade. The girls from Paris Kagekidan return to join forces with the original cast, to help Oogami Ichirou to defeat evil one more time.
There are English reviews.


7. In White [020322] LiFox
Main character returns to his hometown for the first time in three years. He could not save a favorite girl in the traffic accident, and that wound lingers since then. His wish to get back to past is so strong that he is able to get there guided by a voice in the cherry blossom. This time he needs to protect the girl no matter what.
Five heroines with an average play time of two hours per route. Standing character sprites are great, but event CG quality is unstable. There is no voicing. BGM quality is low. System is bulky and stressful.


8. Senryaku Musume 戦略娘 [020322] Blue Gale
Continent drowned in battle for territory. In this world only women can become military personnel since men are intelligently and mentally inferior to a women.
But one day a savior appears in one country, and the problem is that he is a man. That savior is you. Good luck!
Strategy + H scenes. There are only 38 CG. There are seven heroines - two in allied country and five in enemy countries. However, protagonist is an elder brother from a good family, so H events aren't dark. Strategy part is quite simple, and there's no need to worry about supplies.


9. Subete ga F ni Naru ~The Perfect Insider~ すべてがFになる ~THE PERFECT INSIDER ~ [020328] KID 1
The player has to investigate and discover who was the murderer of a genius that was murdered in her private laboratory isolated from the outside world with the doors closed and the only clue was a mysterious message that was left.
The player controls Kiryuu Wataru, a young fourth year university student in the faculty of engineering and architecture who is into mystery novels. To solve this case he will have the help of Nishinosono Moe (a first grader girl in the University Department of Architecture & Engineering) and Saikawa Souhei (University Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, Architecture) and other characters.
This game might resemble both Ever17 and Never7 that came later, but actually this work is based on a novel, and game scenario is created together with the author. Mystery is good, and there are 11 endings. Price tag is higher than usual. The only strange thing in the game is that there is there is no tension among the characters even though there are murders occurring nearby.


10. Angel Core ANGEL・CORE [020329] Rune
A young military officer, Captain Ralph Maskenval, was sent to Nortland, to fulfill a mission, which was to keep a close watch over the Angels. The Angels were coerced into believing they needed to have sex to nurture the "Angel Core" inside. Ralph starts to feel awkward about his mission. Then Ralph learns the reason behind the Angels' sex-craved behavior. Ralph will have to make a big decision... 
Unique game with a solid military world view. Heroines are diverse and each root demands that you both interact with the favorite heroine and get information about her from other heroines. Development is a bit hasty in the second part of each heroine route, but still each story is quite long. Erotic part is not as strong as the story.


11. Angelic Serenade AS〜エンジェリックセレナーデ [020329] Kuroneko-san Team 1
You are a teenage boy traveling to find the angel that stopped you from aging. You don't remember it very well since it was what, ten years, twenty years ago? Maybe even longer. Other than the clothes on your back, you carry a magical, musical instrustrument and the feather of the angel you are searching for. One day, you come across a girl. This girl is very different. She can't talk and has different colored eyes. Her left eye is dark blue and her right eye is fire red. This is how the game begins.
There is an English review.


12. Comic Cafe コミックカフェ [020329] Girl's Software
Main character is a regular of a certain manga cafe that hires only cute cosplay girls to work here in maid outfits to rise the sales. There is a ticket system here that allows to exchange tickets for a cosplay event of the favorite girl. 
Until the middle of the game the shifts of girls aren't known, so it's all about save and load. There's no real common route, just individual routes. System is quite painful, so the further you go, the more stress you accumulate.


13. Gaia -Save the Earth- ガイア -Save the Earth- [020329] Xai
Pollution levels hit their limit in the 21st century causing water, air and soil contamination, as well as global warming.
At such time goddess Gaia appears in the sky with the power of love to save the Earth. She chooses a savior who must bring together powers of heroines from five different countries. And that savior is you.
You're not explained anything, so it gets confusing what to do - that hurts pace a lot. Even though you need to travel, you need to choose destination among choices, not on the map. There's only very painful skipping. Volume is small.


14. Genmukan ~Aiyoku to Ryoujoku no Inzai~ 幻夢館~愛欲と凌辱の淫罪~ [020329] Aias
You play as Satoru, a detective that smokes 40 cigarettes a day. He and his lovely lady assistant come upon a mysterious parcel at work with an address and the single request of "Protect this family". When he scouts out the address he finds an enormous estate with an equally breathtaking European-style mansion. He heads to the building to further investigate. There he finds the steward, the maid, the manservant, and even the young-lady of the house along with her tutor. However, the master of the premises is nowhere to be found. He then realizes that he's in too deep, but finds out that he's locked within the pavilion. He will soon witness the wicked perverted secret behind the mansion.
Actually an eroge with mystery stronger than H motives. Tony's art is a great plus as well - I adore detective assistant Nakayama Mei for a long time, actually. All routes can be beaten in 5 hours overall. Difficulty is easy as there are almost no branches.


15. Hyakki ~Inmoku Sareta Haikyo~ 百鬼 ~淫黙された廃墟~ [020329] Elf
Once, "Ohka Island Island" I had ... a vibrant.
But a little one kilometers surrounding islands, flourished by coal production, building a 10-story Class line the heyday,
I was proud enough to surpass the population density of Tokyo.
Includes parks and shrines, to schools and hospitals, but small scale, "Ohka Island" is a splendid town.
However, by main force of energy has shifted from coal to oil, the closure of coal mines of the island.
Because there is no other than the coal industry, the island residents would no longer have much in months. Now the buildings became ruins .......
Story unfolds on the ruins of "islands Ohka" that has been sealed ...... even the weathered storage.
Stunning hidden truth and eternal love ......... the drama joy, anger, and sorrow is! ?
There are 15 routes hidden inside the island, but they demand exploration and thus are easy to miss. Routes are absolutely different varying from pure lot to erotic, from mystery to ghost stories. Each route takes only one day. Too many elements are introduced at once - exploration, 3D animation, point-and-click during H events etc. Boring conversation kills the middle game.


16. Kikokugai - The Cyber Slayer 鬼哭街 The Cyber Slayer [020329] Nitroplus 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
A tale of revenge set in future Shanghai, where crime syndicates and cyber-warriors rule the city.
The schools of martial arts can be largely divided into two styles - Waijia, the external schools that concentrate solely on the development of speed, strength, and powerful forms and techniques - and Neijia, those that use control of breathing and blood flow to master the internal energy - qi - that flows through the body's meridians. Because of these methodological differences, the two styles have vied time and again for supremacy.
Although practitioners of Waijia were far greater in number, in the end not one of them could stand up to a warrior who had truly mastered the secrets of Neijia. For centuries, this was the unchallenged law of the martial arts world. However, the advent of cybernetics changed everything. Freed from the yoke of their physical limitations, Waijia schools discovered an entirely new world of possibility. The Neijia schools that had reigned over the martial world with their secret techniques, suddenly found themselves obsolete.
In this age where technology is changing the face of combat, heirs to the ancient martial traditions have developed anti-cyborg techniques for the sole purpose of defeating cyborgs with one's bare hands - at great cost to the wielder. 
Kong Taoluo, one such master and former asssassin in the Qingyun Society, returns to Shanghai from a year in recovery after being betrayed by the syndicate and assumed dead. Discovering the horrible truth of what has happened to his sister during his absence; Taoluo swears an oath of vengeance and sets out to murder those responsible.
Game is localized and has lots of English reviews.


17. Mayu ~Yuki no Knife~ 繭~雪のナイフ~ [020329] Gipsy
A letter arrived to main character from a childhood friend asking to return to his hometown. At the station he is met my a maid and guided to the mansion.
At night one of the guests of the mansion is found dead. Then another one. What's the motive of the criminal? 
Period is 7 days. Lots of mystic concepts are piled together in this game. Lots of hints are scattered around in cryptic notes. Thin scenario and small number of CG are the main weak points.


18. Missing Link -Actual Facts- [020329] Altacia
A middle-aged man's dead body is found on the rails at Nakano Station in Tokyo. Is it a suicide, murder or an accident? 
Ukyo meets with the widow with three children and starts to move. However, during investigation he starts to feel that the family is about to be incorporated into a “multi-edged whirlpool of organized crime”. 
Can Ukyo protect the family from the impending crisis?
Case is based on real events, but according to the genre rules there's a proper ending here. During game release in 1996 such ending was not possible since lawsuit was still not finished. This particular works deals with sufferings of Ukyo as a human being rather than focuses on women. Realist and feelings depiction shine here.


19. Mugen no Zero 夢幻のゼロ [020329] Studio B-Room
Main character is blown into a mysterious space one day leaded by the voice of the girl asking for help. He has no other option but take the sword and slay monsters in this ever-changing labyrinth to recover his memories.
RPG part is quite easy and fun. Text is quite rich, and there's some loli girl waiting by the end. Lots of meaningless battles, but it does not irritate too much.


20. One Night Heaven ~Aka to Kuro no Hitobito ni Sasagu Hommage~ One Night Heaven ~赤と黒の人々に捧ぐオマージュ~ [020329] Black Butterfly
High school at Shinjuku, Tokyo, but in imaginary world created by human brain. 
Fates of 18 people are intertwined there.
A girl is in love with a boy, but he only plays with her heart. One day illusion of the girl appears at school, and rumors about her suicide start to spread.
At the same time Ryusei creates "Misuzu" and tries to infest people's minds with "Misuzu" through the internet. 
Nagase starts to investigate the connection between the illusion girl and the "Misuzu"...
Game is sometimes called Odeon 2, because of the same developers and no less difficult world. It's really difficult to identify the words of all 18 people without the portraits and relations chart given in the game manual. The wall of text and absence of voicing don't help either. The outcomes here can be absolutely bizarre like resurrection of Christ that triggers destruction of nuclear power plant with the whole world. There aren't real reviews for this modernistic thing.


21. Pokopoko Gunsho 2 ~Its a Real World~ ぽこぽこ軍将2~いっつ・あ・りある・わ~るど~ [020329] Yui Koubou
Select opponents in military shogi game and defeat cute girls! There are both familiar faces of heroines and new ones. Difficulty is up due to doubling the board size.
Surprising... but still not interested.


22. Seishun 18 Radio 青春18ラヂオ [020329] Ark
There is a community radio station "Seishun 18 Radio" located in the former elementary school building in Kubota. It is a radio station loved by the youth for its sincerity. However, hospitalization of the leading producer forced the station to shut down due to confusion and financial difficulties. 
Protagonist starts reconstruction of the station. Will he be able to overcome difficulties and build human relations with his colleagues?
First half is ADV, but the second half is a board game. There are 15 game episodes and, sadly, they are disjointed. In order to move to the next board round it's needed to expand your team and fulfill a certain condition. The development is sudden, and no conclusions are prepared. There's no such thing as mutual help - just individual H paths with some girls. Game's a total mess.


23. Sky SKY ~スカイ~ [020329] Cherry Soft
The sun darkens and casts shadows, and the wind clears her hat. 
Summer sea glimmers. 
White clouds run across the blue sky. 
She waves to me a lot. 
That's something I like in her.
Period is one month. You need to solve various troubles in your studies and grow love feeling with some heroine. Thanks to introduced hint system walkthrough is not really needed. Everyday sweet talk helps the relations. Weekends are for date events. There are multiple animated H scenes for each heroine totaling over 30 minutes of real time. Development is without any ups and downs, so feels boring. Surprisingly ordinary game for Cherry Soft.


24. Mukou no Yume 向日の夢 [0203] Treasures 1 2
For reasons completely unknown, Chisato Mikogami kills herself. She comes back as a ghost and wanders the earth, meeting the many interesting spirits and ghosts that make up the afterlife.
