Foreword: I was impressed with art and dark atmosphere of the game, but chose it because wanted to know the plot.
There is a small island called Kugaitou. Several decades ago, a man moved there and secretly formed a religious group. He was soon revered by people on the island and the group got bigger. Souichirou, the main character, was born and grew up there.... Time passes.... Souichirou is about to move to Tokyo. Just a few days before he leaves, he and his fr
Foreword: Never faced crossovers in visual novels before, so expectations ranged from weird fandisk to something like Soukou Akki Muramasa since I rated both original games high.
Depending on which route you choose, you start out as either Alfred Arrowsmith, after his united front with Rick against Gustave, or Kuki Youkou after his final confrontation with Soushichi. Ungaikyou (literary means the mirror beyond the clouds), a youkai made from the failure attempt o
G-senjou no Maou is VN of the Month. Aoishiro , Chrono Belt ~Ayakashibito & Bullet Butlers Crossover Disc~ , Bifronte ~Kugaitou Kitan~ are also masterpieces. I'll review Chrono Belt and Bifronte ~Kugaitou Kitan~

Foreword: Could not miss probably the best game in the series. All conceptual things are given in a different review (1), so I'll slack with just an impression.
There are two different worlds... They are quite similar, but conflicting with each other. One of the world is called the World of White Silver that exists independently. However, the other world coexists with other worlds, closely affecting each other. People of these worlds hate to be invaded by others.
Gouen no Soleil -Chaos Region- is VN of the Month that I take for review. 11eyes -Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shoujo- is another masterpiece. I consider Chaos;Head so bad that it's nowhere near masterpiece material.
1. Boku Dake no Kajitsu 僕だけの果実  JIN Products The story of a man and three women and the training they partake in... "Come on, I will teach you true love".

Foreword: I fell in love with this game after reading a long French review a long time ago (1). Imagination went wild back then, but only now I can finally play it.
The story of 12Riven takes place on May 20, 2012 with Renmaru Miyabidou biking his way speedily towards the abandoned Integral building after receiving a message on his cellphone that Myuu, an old friend of his, would die at the building's top level today at noon. When he gets there, he checks his wri
12Riven -The Ψcliminal of Integral- is VN of the Month. I'll also call Princess Frontier and Tri☆Stars masterpieces. Reviewing all these . As for Akatsuki no Goei , it does not bear much value in isolation, just an incomplete story leaving mostly disappointment feelings.
1. Naraku no Shiro Ichiyanagi Nagomu, Nidome no Junan 奈落の城 一柳和、2度目の受難  FOG 1 After solving the Amagoushi no Yakata case, Ichiyanagi Nagomu receives an invitation from his friend Hiori to go to the R

Game type: Mindscrew moege
Character Design rating: 6/10
Why are there only six unblocked games? Guess it's just a quiet month since February 2007 had nine. Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~ is the only game with actual twist and somewhat curious plot.
1. Switch!! ~Boku ga Natsu ni Omou Koto~ すいっチ!! ～ボクがナツに想うこと～  Colon The main character is a university student. One day, when he is asleep, he feels something strange. And when he wakes up, he finds some girls standing in front of him. What leads the girls to his room..
Foreword: Was a difficult choice, in the end just chose Garden because it had slightly better scores and impressions than competitors within the month.

2. Fortune Arterial  August 1 2
Year 2007 is great for bringing two full 10/10 masterpieces Draculius and Dies irae and many more very nice visual novels. You all know that winner is Dies irae as it's probably main visual novel of all times. First version from 2007 was quite raw, and there are some funny negative reviews from 2007-2008, but light found inner strength to polish this version and even freely give away it to original buyers. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2007 with songs.
My list of masterpieces in 20
Foreword: Chose this game just because of the brand.
An omnibus story set around private school that attracts death incidents featuring three different male protagonists - student Fuuta, recently appointed teacher Romio and young actor Kai.
Game type: School horror moege
Character Design rating: 6/10
Protagonist rating: 4/10
Story rating: 4/1
Dies irae is VN of the Month. Oh, well, now there won't be intrigue about VN of the Year. Himawari is another masterpiece. For review I chose Love & Dead by LiarSoft in hope for absurdist comedy.
1. Fair Child  ALcot 1
Pure and fair, I wanna deliver this feeling. Kazuki's parents passed away when he was a kid. But he lives a peaceful life at his aunt's house, and somehow enjoys it with Kotori, his cousin, and Kokoro, his friend. He hopes thi
Foreword: It's the only chunige of the month, so an obvious choice.
Demon Parasites..., the ones who can transform themselves into soldiers by holding a mysterious parasite inside. One night, Juzo meets Mizuki, who is a demon parasite, in the park, and gets to know that he is also a demon parasite. Now that he is a demon parasite, he gradually gets involved in a battle against monsters. Will he be able to defeat them...?
Wow, there are as many as six masterpieces this month - Aster , Kira☆Kira , Sekai de Ichiban Dame na Koi , Sekien no Inganock -What a Beautiful People- , Soshite Ashita no Sekai yori , Demon Parasite ~Akuma no You na Tenshi no Kanojo~ . I'm choosing the last one as VN of the Month, and will explain this choice in its review.

Foreword: Akatsuki Works first game can't be missed.

The boy who didn't know anything learns the facts, falls in love and grows up through tough experiences... What will he get when he learns all the secrets...?
Foreword: Why is there only like two Japanese reviews for a game with this classy setting? The Japanese must have overlooked another great game, and I'm restoring it to due glory. Or so I thought.
There is a city filled with crime. The police can do nothing, and a big conspiracy is now being planned. To protect his beloved, Rex rises up...
He has a secret that he is actually a battle hero, Xvain. His decision to use his power is triggered by meeting with

Foreword: It's the only fantasy battle game of the month, so it's a natural choice to play.
The main character is Haruto, a soldier. One day, he loses his life during a battle. To get back to life, he'll need to get the energy of other people. However, it's hard to do so.... Just when he gives up, Noah and Firia stop him. They decide to offer their bodies to him....
Foreword: There have been a lot of H parodies of Haruhi Suzumia, but this one seems to be a mild absurdist parody developing on the themes of the anime. Or do I expect too much from a game by Rune?
Akio is an ordinary uni student. But, there is one thing different from others. That is his great olfactory system. He somehow hides it, and lives a peaceful life. One day, Haruruko, his classmate, finds it, and his life suddenly turns around 180 degrees...
Second month without masterpieces. I'll probably settle with Tsurugi Otome Noah as VN of the Month. Reviewing it, as well as 8665^2 Haruruko no Jijou .
