Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no 遥かに仰ぎ、麗しの [Pulltop]

VN of the Month November 2006 - Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no

Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no is VN of the month, but I'll review it myself to determine whether it's a masterpiece or not. 1. Moon Strike [061102] Vanaheim Main character decided to undergo an operation and become metanoid because of revenge. Afterwards he fought on as a warrior of justice as "Silver Blast" for the Future Hope Foundation.

PP -Pianissimo- Ayatsuri Ningyou no Rinbu PP -ピアニッシモ- 操リ人形ノ輪舞 [Innocent Grey]

Foreword: I planned to skip Pianissimo since I don't like concept of both Cartagra and Pianissimo. But game does not have real English reviews and is really beautiful. After New Generation I need such kind of injection. Synopsis: Place: Tokyo in the year 1936. Kudou Sousuke is a pianist, usually plays at a jazz bar. One rainy day, he gets involved in a peculiar case: he is suddenly attacked by a woman on the way home. He defeats her although he gets injured. The following d

Ayakashi H [Apricot]

Foreword: It's the second fandisc that I'm taking up for a review after Nijuubako. Both have a real story involved, and I wanted to check how far story dimension goes and where it stops for Ayakashi H. Synopsis: This is a fandisc for Ayakashi taking place one month after the ending of the original. Somewhere in a forest, three people -- one man and two girls -- arrive to the Akino residence. They ask to meet her but are denied so by the guards, for it is late at night and t

VN of the Month September 2006 - PP -Pianissimo- Ayatsuri Ningyou no Rinbu

Gameplay intensive visual novels don't participate in the race, so VN of the Month is PP -Pianissimo- Ayatsuri Ningyou no Rinbu. I'm reviewing it as well as Ayakashi H 1. Love+Laby らぶ+らび [060901] Le.Chocolat A planet similar to the Earth of the 18th century. There is no electricity there, because there is magic and alchemy. Weird monsters become active and attack human communities. Main character is a warrior who stands up to protect these people.

VN of the Month August 2006 - Eve ~New Generation~

Eve ~New Generation~ is VN of the Month.

Bra-Ban! ぶらばん! [Yuzusoft]

Foreword: I'm sure that first brand's title bears a message of what kind of games it's going to make. Yuzusoft is a big player on the scene, it's good to know its roots. Synopsis: You play as part of the brass section of the school band. However, they have closed your school due to low student population and have redistricted all who went there to another school. That school's brass band has already been well established there, and your new school cannot have two brass bands. Not o

Maid-san to Ookina Ken メイドさんと大きな剣 [May-Be Soft]

Foreword: Game opening is clean, heroines are pretty, and big swords promise good action, so I decided to try one game from nukige-maker May-Be Soft out of curiosity. Synopsis: Makito lives an ordinary life with ordinary parents. But one day, his father tells him that his family is a "Zaibatsu", a large family that controls banking and industrial combines. His father thinks that Kazuki has grown up enough to tell the secret and tells him to live at the main house by himself for a w

Hime-sama Ririshiku! 姫さま凛々しく![Q-X]

Foreword: In June selection is so bad that I was choosing between erotic fantasy game in school environment and in fantasy environment, and the latter was chosen which is Hime-sama Ririshiku! Synopsis: He is wandering around the forest. He doesn't know where he is, why he is there. The only things he remembers are his name and his position that he is a prince of a country. The prince meets a mysterious girl named Chinaki. She has also lost her memory but it seemed she came from ano
 

VN of the Month June 2006 - H2O -Footprints in the Sand-

H2O -Footprints in the Sand- is the only masterpiece of the month. I'm reviewing Hime-sama Ririshiku! just because it's fantasy'ish. 1. Iinchou wa Shounin Sezu! ~It Is a Next Choice~ 委員長は承認せず! ~It Is a Next CHOice~ [060602] Chien Kurou, in the second grade at Rinou Gakuen, is an inspector. Rinou Gakuen high school is a school of the committees, by the committees, for the committees. The general meeting is taken place once a year and there comes a mysterious mail that says
 

Hidamari ひだまり [AXL]

Foreword: First game by AXL inevitably piqued my interest. Synopsis: There is an old apartment, where nobody lives because there is a rumor that people who live there will be dogged by misfortune. The apartment is owned by Kouhei, a uni student whose parents passed away when he was a child. Kouhei has a special ability that he can talk to ghosts. By using this ability, he sometimes talks to his deceased parents so that he never feels lonely. One day, two students transfer to his cl
 

VN of the Month May 2006 - Hidamari

May is a relatively quiet month with few titles. The VN of the month is Hidamari which I'm reviewing, but there are quite many masterpieces including KimiKiss , D.C. II ~Da Capo II~ , Kishin Hishou Demonbane and finally Scarlett . 1. Samurai 7 [060524] Design Factory Co., Ltd. Visual novel based on the Samurai 7 anime. As usual, cheap anime spin-off. Game only covers 16 anime episodes and skips on epic ending. Moreover, it becomes a stupid dating sim as each sam
 

Kansen ~In'yoku no Rensa~ 姦染 ~淫欲の連鎖~ [Speed]

Foreword: There are enough good reviews of this game (1 2 3 4). But I'm going to look at it as a pure love game neglecting all the H content. It's probably going to be weird and underscored because of that. Synopsis: Extracurricular club activities are the norm for Japanese schools, but an all-night movie event scheduled at school and in August still sounds strange/unusual, especially considering the tiny size of the Movie Research Club (merely six students). And indeed, the two te
 

VN of the Month April 2006 - Tenshitsuki no Shoujo

I consider Tenshitsuki no Shoujo to be VN of the Month. I promised one person to review Kansen ~Inyoku no Rensa~ , and this time has come. 1. Kou Ki 紅姫 -Kou Ki- [060403] Saga Planets It's a short era in China history that disappeared from memory of successors. Main heroine is a princess who rides horses and handles sword and bow skillfully. She gets her marriage arranged. She wants to see partner, so under hidden identity visits her partner's town. But at this time conspir

Lost Child [Tama-Soft]

Foreword: Game interested me mostly as supposed sequel of Abandoner. Synopsis: After disaster in 2024, seven years ago rain has never stopped in this city. As of recent, nightly serial killings have infused fear in human hearts. Injured by monster attack and dying, student Shouji meets girl Ai who binds a contact with him and gives him power to use mighty claw in battle.

VN of the Month March 2006 - Lost Child

Lost Child is VN of the Month, review incoming. Guess Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku o can also be called a masterpiece. 1. Spitan Spirits Expedition -in the Phantasmagoria- スピたん Spirits Expedition―in the Phantasmagoria― [060303] Xuse 1 There’s a mountainous crag to the northeast of the Continent of Dragons called Dragon's Claw Marks. No one in the recorded history has been able to cross that area safely. However, they did not have a newly invented airship! You

AR ~Wasurerareta Natsu~ AR~忘れられた夏~ [Circus]

Foreword: Circus makes either serial works of flying whales (hello, Saishuu Shiken Kujira). This is exactly such case of flying whales. Lots of mist and epicness summoned to cover dirty rags. Synopsis: The memory that was forgotten somewhere, the feelings that were sealed in it ... The memory of green, wandering eyes. I forgot summer sky refection in the puddle, drops of tears, small lips and whispering voice. This world is beautiful - gentle fragrance, soft warmt

VN of the Month February 2006 - Muv-Luv Alternative

Muv-Luv Alternative definitely makes the winner of this month and, despite my worries, I enjoy it a lot so far, somewhere between 9 and 10. The only other game that can be called a masterpiece this month is Moshimo Ashita ga Harenaraba . I'm choosing AR ~Wasurerareta Natsu~ for review just in order to reveal its very vaguely described plot. 1. Dra†KoI 竜†恋 [060203] Nitroplus 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 A boy-meets-girl story in a world under attack by dragons.      G

Horizont [Artel]

Foreword: I was choosing between booby fighting action, PS2 juvenile investigation game and SF game in January 2006, so I chose SF one, of course. I also quite liked Setsuka character design, so decided to try Horizont for her alone at least.   Synopsis: The Earth has suffered from terrible wars, and the United Nations' World Federation Government was formed as a result. 33 years later ULF (United LUNA Front) has emerged and declared inter-planetary war to UNWF. The Moon gains

VN of the Month January 2006 - I/O

The VN of the Month is  I/O, but that's a great start of the year. I also consider Fragments Blue a masterpiece. For some reason I chose Horizont for review among games without English review. 1. Fragments Blue [060119] Vridge Inc. 1 2 This novel-type adventure begins when the main character Kaname Ousaka takes delivery of a letter and a key. In search of the letter's source, he heads back to his home town of Shimizu and learns of a quest to collect a set of such keys in o
