VN of the Month February 2015 - Silverio Vendetta

Silverio Vendetta is a natural choice for VN of the Month. But I also consider all of Boku no Hitori Sensou , Rakuen no Shugosha , Sanoba Witch and Soreyori no Prologue masterpieces. Clephas has the same favorite with Sanoba Witch given special mention. Micchi in addition to Soreyori no Prologue looks forward to Kujiragami no Tearstilla and Ama Koi Syrups, and even Zer has his picks of Akuma Musume no Kanban Ryouri and Sakura Synchronicity .   1. Zombie no Afureta Sekai de Ore

VN of the Month January 2015 - Tokeijikake no Ley Line -Asagiri ni Chiru Hana-

Tokeijikake no Ley Line -Asagiri ni Chiru Hana- is VN of the Month. Kurogane Kaikitan -Senya Ichiya- is another curious species. Clephas did not choose anything due to nature of trilogy and absence of PC release for the mentioned games. Micchi emphasizes Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia and Haru Kiss   1. Kimihane: Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi Suru Ikkagetsu きみはね 彼女と彼女の恋する1ヶ月 [150123] BaseSon Light 1 2 Hina, Rin and Fumi are new roommates at Seiba Girls’ Sc

VN of the Year 2014

Year 2014 has overall less normal releases and masterpieces that 2013, but there is still one kamige Nanairo Reincarnation and one hilarious mindscrew Bradyon Veda to represent it strongly. I tried to include everything notable in the list, even Aokana, but still only ended at 27 masterpieces. Somehow even number of openings degraded to under 150 from usual close to 200. Visual Novel Openings 2014 .  My list of masterpieces in 2014: 12 no Tsuki no Eve

VN of the Month December 2014 - Teito Hiten Daisakusen

Teito Hiten Daisakusen is VN of the Month. Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai and Chaos;Child are also masterpieces, but with the latter I'd recommend anime over the game. Clephas chose Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai at the time, but Liar-Soft game was unavailable at the time.   1. Kadenz Fermata//Akkord:Fortissimo [141211] La'cryma 1  It is not the end (fermata) to this story of battles. In order to bring upon “justice”, a spe

VN of the Month November 2014 - Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou.

Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou. is VN of the Month. Clephas had to agree on Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm , but I hate sports even more and sampling anime based on the game only worsened aggravated bias. Micchi likes both and also Kimi no Tonari de Koi Shiteru , Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria and a fandisc.   1. Hanayamata: Yosakoi Live! ハナヤマタ よさこいLIVE! [141113] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. Naru Sekiya is an ordinary 14-year-old middle sch

VN of the Month October 2014 - Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete

There aren't masterpieces in October. If I had to choose one, I'd say Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete . Clephas decided to skip nomination entirely. Micchi adds to the already mentioned title Hanokiwa Logic and Unmei Senjou no φ .   1. Mayoi Hitsuji no Kajuen マヨイヒツジの果樹園 [141007] Namaage 1 2 A small, garden-like Academy stands alone on a secluded island. Ichirou Yamada has been transferred there to work as a teac

VN of the Month September 2014 - Nanairo Reincarnation

Nanairo Reincarnation is VN of the month. Other masterpieces are Minamijuujisei Renka and Sekai o Sukuu Dake no Kantan na Oshigoto . Yet again I get to follow Clephas choices and fail to find anything else worthwhile. Micchi with his seven picks likes pretty much everything else as well - Yakimochi Stream , Onii-chan, Migite no Shiyou o Kinshi Shimasu, plus delayed titles   1. Ano Harewataru Sora yori Takaku あの晴れわたる空より高く [140926] ChuableSoft 1 2 3

VN of the Month August 2014 - Satsukoi ~Yuukyuu Naru Koi no Uta~

It's August, so many doujins sneaked into my list surpassing 10 titles mark for a change. Yet again there is only just one masterpiece - Satsukoi ~Yuukyuu Naru Koi no Uta~ . There are couple others that are nice within their genres, but outside my favorite genres games need to be at least decent to attract my attention. Clephas had a clear image of the same favorite. Micchi brings along a lot of cuteness with Dekinai Watashi ga, Kurikaesu , Himawari!! -Anata Dake o Mitsumeteru- , Idol Mahou Shou

VN of the Month July 2014 - AstralAir no Shiroki Towa

AstralAir no Shiroki Towa is the only game worth mentioning in July though Clephas also gave a special mention to Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai. Micchi adds to the list such nukige'ish games as Change! and Neko Masshigura .   1. Island Days [140703] 0verflow 1 The story follows Makoto Itou who, along with his various female companions, finds himself stranded on a remote island. While awaiting rescue, Makoto and the others must do their best

VN of the Month June 2014 - Semiramis no Tenbin

Semiramis no Tenbin is VN of the Month and Reminiscence Re:Collect is a solid choice for those who played prequel. Clephas did not highlight any other titles, and I failed to find anything appealing enough as well. Micchi actually found three more - Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura doki , Re;Lord ~Helford no Majo to Nuigurumi~ and even Lilium x Triangle .   1. Magical Eyes -Red is for anguish- マジカルアイズ -Red is for anguish- [140620] Pomera Studios 1 2 3 4

VN of the Month May 2014 - Houkago no Futekikakusha

Houkago no Futekikakusha is VN of the Month with Sakigake ⇒ Generation! as another decent game. That's exactly how Clephas considered, and with so few releases in May there's little room for discovery. Micchi in addition to Clochette title has expectations for Majo Koi Nikki and Haruka Kanata.   1. Shizuku no Oto しずくのおと [140505] aiueo Kompany 1 2 3 Manten Aquarium---a secret place nestled in the city.  Mayumi Nak

VN of the Month April 2014 - Racial Merge

Racial Merge is the only masterpiece of the month for me as I can at least enjoy it as a comedy. Clephas had to turn down all the candidates. Micchi pulls out another tremendous list of seven titles among which are PRETTY×CATION , Sora Tobu Hitsuji to Manatsu no Hana , Natsukoi High Pressure , Love Sweets , delayed titles and a fandisc.   1. Dream Club Gogo. ドリームクラブGogo. [140410] Tamsoft Corporation 1 Dream C Club gives the interaction and playa

VN of the Month March 2014 - Endless Dungeon

VN of the Month is Endless Dungeon with other masterpieces being Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa and Hello Lady! . Clephas nominated the last two. Micchi pulls out a ridiculous list of seven titles including additional Clover Day’s , Doko no Donata no Kanjou Route , Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort, fandisc and delayed ones.   1. Ar Nosurge ~Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Uta~ アルノサージュ ~生まれいずる星へ祈る詩~ [140306] Gust 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 On the planet Ra Ciel

VN of the Month February 2014 - Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin

Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin is VN of the month. Other masterpieces include Baka Moe Heart ni Ai o Komete! and Koi Suru Doll to Omoi no Kiseki ~Poupee de Souhaits~ . Clephas empathized the last one among the three. Micchi in addition to Koi Suru Doll does not mind playing Otonari Koi Sensou and fandiscs.   1. Fragment's Note 2 Side: Yukitsuki Fragment’s Note2 Side:雪月 [140227] Alvion 1 The Fragment's Note visual novel series returns wit

VN of the Month January 2014 - Bradyon Veda

Bradyon Veda is beyond reach in January. Clephas tried to choose a game that is good for everyone, so stopped at Sekai to Sekai no Mannaka de . Other nice choices are  Kimi to Boku to no Kishi no Hibi -Rakuen no Chevalier- and 12 no Tsuki no Eve . Micchi also feels for Melty Moment and Kiss Ato   1. Bradyon Veda [140124] Akatsuki Works 1 2 3 4 5 It’s been three years since the end of the tragic Great War. In the midst of the central city of Molo

Noblelige! ノーブルリージュ! [Mana]

Foreword: I seriously neglected this game as a light novel short spin-off from an obscure maker. And guess what - it was a shocking blast akin to XBlaze Code: Embryo Synopsis: This is an all-ages cross-media series by bishoujo game company mana and light novel publisher MF Bunko J. It is written by Okano Touya and TAMAMI. The light novel covers the first part of the story, while the kinetic novel DVD that comes with the special version of the paperback details the second part of

VN of the Year 2013

Year 2013 exceeded my expectations. I was able to choose as many as 34 masterpieces, even one more than in fruitful 2012. Surprisingly, there's a better selection of chuunige as well - industry is absolutely alive and kicking. However, now it's truly the last year of abundance - sneak peek into 2014 shows the number of masterpieces being in the mid twenties. Visual Novel Openings 2013 .  My list of masterpieces in 2013: Boku ga Tenshi ni Natta Wake ChuSinGura 4

VN of the Month December 2013 - Sengoku † Koihime ~Otome Kenran ☆ Sengoku Emaki~

Sengoku † Koihime ~Otome Kenran ☆ Sengoku Emaki~ and Timepiece Ensemble are masterpieces of the month. Clephas liked the first one more. Micchi likes the second one, plus Magicalic⇔Sky High   1. Kaihou Shoujo SIN 解放少女 SIN [131205] MAGES. GAME 1 2 3 4 A sequel to Liberation Maiden, although it sheds the three-dimensional shooting gameplay in favor of a visual novel approach. Liberation Maiden SIN follows the exploi

VN of the Month November 2013 - Electro Arms -Realize Digital Dimension-

Electro Arms -Realize Digital Dimension- is VN of the month. Other masterpieces include HHG Megami no Shuuen and Izayoi no Fortuna . Clephas seemed to have the same favorites. Micchi instead prefers Sakura Mau Otome no Rondo , Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai and Amatarasu Riddle Star   1. D.M.L.C -Death Match Love Comedy- D.M.L.C.-デスマッチラブコメ- [131128] Kemco Corporation Death Match Love Comedy, does the exact opposite of usual vis

VN of the Month October 2013 - Getsuei Gakuen -kou-

What a small number of new releases. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- is the only game that catches the eye for me, though including it might be not fair as its Windows version came only couple years later. Clephas chose fandisc of Walkure Romanze. Micchi likes Cocoro@Function and Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade   1. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- 月英学園 -kou- [131010] Arc System Works 1 2 3 The game revolves around the protagonist, Kou, who has just barely been tra

VN of the Month September 2013 - Yume ka Utsutsu ka Matryoshka

I choose Yume ka Utsutsu ka Matryoshka as VN of the Month. Chephas hesitated between the two, but chose Karumaruka * Circle . Micchi adds Ichiban Ja Nakya Dame Desu ka and some imouto nukige to his set of interests.   1. Yahari Game demo Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. やはりゲームでも俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。 [130919] guyzware 1  The story follows two loners, the pragmatic Hikigaya Hachiman and beautiful Yukinoshita Yukino, who despite their varying

VN of the Month August 2013 - Innocent Bullet -The False World-

There aren't masterpieces this month for me. But if I still had to choose, I'd probably point at Innocent Bullet -The False World- . Clephas decided not to choose anything. Zen picks Aozora Stripe and fandiscs while Micchi adds Hoshi no Ne Sanctuary and PriministAr to already tremendous wishlist.   1. Senjin Otome ~WOTAKU ni Yadorishi Kokoro ni Negau wa...~ 戦刃乙女 ~WOTAKUに宿りし心に願うは…~ [130808] Debo no Su Seisakusho Nanahana-senpai has a breakfast as

VN of the Month July 2013 - XBlaze Code: Embryo

XBlaze Code: Embryo is VN of the Month for me due to personal reasons. Other masterpieces are Seihou no Prismgear and Tojita Sekai no Tori Colony . Clephas liked the last one and also Otome Riron to Sono Shuuhen -Ecole de Paris- . Micchi in addition to Otome Riron is interested in Amairo*IsleNauts and Gleamgarden no Shoujo.   1. XBlaze Code: Embryo [130725] Arc System Works 1 2 3 4 5 6 The protagonist, Touya Kagari, is a resident of

VN of the Month June 2013 - Gensou no Idea ~Oratorio Phantasm Historia~

Gensou no Idea ~Oratorio Phantasm Historia~ is my choice for the month with another great titles being Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi. and Futagoza no Paradox . Clephas backed the last one back then and also Natsukumo Yururu which is too loli to even consider for me. Micchi throws four more colorful titles in.   1. Rou-Kyuu-Bu! Himitsu no Otoshimono ロウきゅーぶ! ひみつのおとしもの [130620] Vridge Inc. Continuation of basketball team struggle.

Astelight Trilogy 星継駅擾乱譚 / 星継駅年代史 / 星継駅疾走軌 [raiL-soft]

Foreword: I know I'm supposed to be finally reviewing Second Novel, but I give up. It has heavy gameplay elements and I'm stuck there at some point even with walkthrough, so I probably need to waste 10 more hours brute-forcing it, which I totally don't intend to do. Wanted to record at least short stories, but they aren't in the form of visual novel - just scanned light novels or whatever in vertical format and manual page flipping, no text hooking for them. As for Astelight games,I recorded all
