Natsu no Ame 夏ノ雨 [CUBE]

Natsu no Ame 夏ノ雨 [CUBE]

Foreword: It's a very curious game that I played in the past and then lost. Happy to find and finish it now. Synopsis: The plot of Natsu no Ame revolves around Sousuke, a soccer loving idiot who spends his days practicing with his two friends, Takeda and Midori for the day when he is allowed to return to the soccer club he was forced to resign from. The story begins with Sousuke recalling a memory from his past where he pondered what qualifies as a first love, thinking abo

VN of the Month September 2009 - Natsu no Ame

VN of the Month September 2009 - Natsu no Ame

I feel that I can safely call Natsu no Ame VN of the Month. Another masterpiece is Sorairo which I'm also taking up for review, because I don't want to choose between the two. Lastly, there's Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. that I remember as a nice short atmospheric game. Micchi was of pretty much the same opinion except for Natsu no Ame since it was difficult to except an overwhelming masterpiece from a new brand.   1. Kokuhaku こくはく [090914] Sound Wing 1

Abyss -Homicide Club- 殺人クラブ [Festival]

Abyss -Homicide Club- 殺人クラブ [Festival]

Foreword: Abyss is one of the more known doujin games and even has a fuwanovel recommendation page. But I could find only one English review, so it needs to be fixed asap. Synopsis: Sasayama Akira was born into a family of assassins and trained as a child to become one of them. However, due to psychological issues, his father decided to send Akira to a relative's house, to live a normal life. Several years later, Akira gets asked by the student council president to investi

VN of the Month August 2009 - Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!

Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! is VN of the Month. Guess I'll need to review and evaluate doujin Abyss -Homicide Club- . As many as two doujin games during this August Comiket managed to crawl into the list. Micchi does not really see anything worthwhile, but he starts to add some synopsis starting from this month.   1. Abyss -Homicide Club- ABYSS -殺人クラブ- [090815] Festival 1  Sasayama Akira was born into a family of assassins and trained a

Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo, きっと、澄みわたる朝色よりも、[Propeller]

Foreword: Shumon Yuu work from Propeller already sounds intriguing. Synopsis: We were always together. Irreplaceable friends. There was a strong tie between us even we got separated. Several years later, we have a chance to meet again at school. There are only four classmates, but that's enough. Only us. However... "Stop acting like before." Our relationship gets cold and distant. It's only me who believed in our eternal friendship. What made us like this...? "Ayanashisai Fe

Bengarachou Hakubutsushi 紅殻町博物誌 [raiL-soft]

Foreword: Another Mareni work that's worth investigating. Synopsis: Tomohisa has some memory of his childhood. When he was a kid, he was often playing at some place near his house. But his parents don't remember it. Tomohisa doesn't remember it clearly, either. One day, he finds a notebook. It is about history and things happened at a small town. It's just eccentric, so no one pays attention to it. But he knows who wrote it. It's his uncle, who has been missing for years. The notebo

Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! りんかねーしょん☆新撰組っ! [Libre]

Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! りんかねーしょん☆新撰組っ! [Libre]

Foreword: Game looks like a parody chunige with dimension shifts, so I'd like to know the story. Synopsis: The story takes place in the near future, when monsters frequently appear in the town. Hiromi has just moved to another school because his previous school was closed. The monsters used to be dangerous creatures before, but they are now like crows or stray dogs thanks to high-quality monster exterminators. But one day, Hiromi is suddenly attacked by a monster when he meets Kiku,

Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama 絶対可憐!お嬢様っ [Sumikko Soft]

Foreword: A nice otaku game always catches my attention. Synopsis: Kenjiro is lazy and has no job. One day, his mother calls him and tells that she asked his aunt to hire him at her school. However, Kenjiro is a hardcore otaku - he has no social skills to speak of, can't get along with people, and has never dated a girl... When he arrives at the school, he is shocked to find out it's an all-girls' school, and has no idea what he should do! Luckily he meets up with Nanase,

VN of the Month June 2009 - Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama

I'll call Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama VN of the month, but can't say if it is a masterpiece yet. Same refers to Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! which I'm reviewing to find out its merit. Micchi doesn't see anything worthwhile this month, but Zen is enthralled by yanderege Oni Uta 1. Juusei to Diamond 銃声とダイヤモンド [090618] SCEI Onizuka Youichi - the negotiator from New York - has contracted with the Japanese police and is working for Zero Department, which ha

Trample on Schatten!! ~かげふみのうた~ ~Kagefumi no Uta [Tail Wind]~

Foreword: A localized chunige with intriguing concept, can't miss that. Synopsis: When a chance encounter drops him into the middle of a war between a secret organization of superheroes and the shadow creatures known as schatten, Himehagi Aisaku must awaken the hero within if he hopes to protect all that he holds dear. Together with the valiant princess Keziah, Aisaku will don his blazing armor and shine a light on the shadows that infest his city. But the darkness he unco

VN of the Month May 2009 - Trample on "Schatten!!" ~Kagefumi no Uta~

Trample on "Schatten!!" ~Kagefumi no Uta~ is the only masterpiece this month. And I'll actually review its untranslated and uncensored version. Micchi mostly observes delayed and gameplay visual novels while being expectedly fascinated by Tenshin Ranman and Tayutama fandisc. 1. Boku no Oukoku ぼくの王国 [090501] Finish!

Heliotrope -Sore wa Shi ni Itaru Kami no Ai- ヘリオトロープ-それは死に至る神の愛-[Hatena]

Foreword: CGs of this game look perfect, so I decided to check out why evaluations are so different. Synopsis: There is a mysterious phenomenon that some people are given a divine power, but cursed instead. Yes, those people are found all around the world. Yashiro is negative and withdrawn. One day, a girl suddenly appears and gives him a sword called "Laevatein". Like this, he gets involved in a battle. As being in a battle, he gradually gets to know what's going on aroun

I'll only name Heliotrope -Sore wa Shi ni Itaru Kami no Ai- as masterpiece this month. Micchi finally has Zen to join with his ever-sarcastic comments, and they don't seem to be hyped much about anything this month. 1. Fukai Kiri no Naka de... 深霧の中で… [090403] Caricature One day, Yuma, who belongs to the Japanese archery club, receives a call from his uncle, the chief of his hometown village.

School Five ~Itsutsu no Himitsu no Monogatari~ すく~るふぁいぶ~五つの秘密の物語~ [DisAbel]

Foreword: It looked like a chunige with some badass weapons. And I know that I rated previous Disabel "chunige" as 5/10... Synopsis: This game contains strange love stories of five couples. You can enjoy various stories of mysterious heroines at school in the country. Five stories are connected to each other and it affects your ending. The story grows deeper as it goes and becomes one grand story.... Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv8tOGPirOP2RDdFQNPnRp

Outside gameplay titles I'd only call Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star- and Boku no Te no Naka no Rakuen (because it's tsundere fantasy!) mastepieces. I'll review School Five ~Itsutsu no Himitsu no Monogatari~ since it has battle heroines and kind of obscure. I've always been shocked by the fact how untranslated moege Flyable Heart got so many reviews. I guess there was some horrible English translation, because otherwise it's super suspicious. Michi is pissing rainbows with this

The ones who have special ability called Enja. The origin of Enja is "devil". They get together as if led by something unseen and kill each other. Sora is an Enja boy.

VN of the Month February 2009 - Devils Devel Concept

There are only six titles this month to choose from, but four of those are masterpieces - Shinjisougeki Carnival, Devils Devel Concept, Like a Butler and Tapestry -you will meet yourself- . Reviewing first two. Micchi has pretty much the same, plus three vns that I block as nukige, but what's really funny is that he considers only delayed game Areas and Yoake fandisc big titles. Expectations and outcome don't necessarily coincide.  1. Shinjisougeki Carnival 神事双劇カーニバル [090203] Tale

Blog status update

After each my hiatus blog composition changes. This does not really need to be true, but something always happens that forces me to do it. Last time my youtube channel got deleted. This time I'm forced to drop ambition in the basis of this blog to provide descriptions for as many obscure visual novels as possible.   What changes this time is that I will no longer write any descriptions for doujins and nukige with nsfw covers, will not update recently added visual novels for previous yea

Concerto Note コンチェルトノート [Applique]

Concerto Note コンチェルトノート [Applique]

Foreword: I guess Concerto Note won the poll for extra review, because of partial English release that turned out to be a total scam covering literally only the first three minutes of the game where absolutely nothing is told, and no introductions are made. A lot of years ago I took this bait as well. Now it's time to satisfy that curiosity. Synopsis: Shinya is stuck! He is forced to leave school when he comes back to school after long hospitalization. But one day, he meets

VN of the Year 2008 and POLL for EXTRA review

Year 2008 started with two failed months, continued strong, but by the end lost a lot of appeal for me. There is not a single full 10/10 masterpiece (although technically Dies irae reworked version may be counted), but the overall number of masterpieces is again 20, exactly the same as in 2007, so can't complain here. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2008 with songs. My list of masterpieces in 2008: 11eyes -Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shoujo- 12Riven -The Ψcliminal of In

Foreword: There was very limited selection of games to choose from in December, but I chose Eien no Owari ni because of phrase unfinished masterpiece that I glanced in some review. The fact that Tama-Soft made Lost Child also matters a lot for me. Synopsis: There is a high school that will be closed down soon - one day, Keisuke transfers to that very specific school. On his first day, he visits the newspaper club, but Ryo, the club's leader, acts very coldly towards him. He
