    Fabulous on Fuwa - February!

    By Kaguya

    Introduction   Welcome, fellow Fuwamembers, to the FuwaRecognition thread. Starting this March, we’ll be highlighting some of the best contributions made by our members each month. From snazzy blog articles to delicious forum threads, and perhaps even a few things more on the shitpost part of the spectrum, we'll keep an eye out for the cream of the crop. And then we'll gather them here. Just for you.   *holds up giant APPLAUSE sign*   A-hem, so this is the f

WN: Hell Mode

(Note: To be clear, this is an unfinished VN with over 500 chapters) Hell Mode is the WN I recently began (and finished to the current point) reading.  It is another reincarnation one, where the protagonist was a heavy gamer who is one of those types that loves high-difficulty setups, reveling in grinding, conquering dungeons, and generally indulging in his desire to see more.  He goes to a website where he gets the choice of difficulty and his job, and he picks the hardest difficulty Hell

Gaia the Floating Prison Ship Review

For this week VNTS Review, I just make a parody one of the new project, Hyouryuu Kangoku Chronos, by changing 'Chronos' with 'Gaia' in the English title of it, Chronos the Floating Prison Ship, so we have 'Gaia the Floating Prison Ship' as this week VNTS Review. The reason for 'Gaia' name here is because we have a new plan from Ninetail that they'll do the Kickstarter to localize Venus Blood Gaia, which mean obviously it'll be their next project. Welcome to this week VNTS, and as what I can say

Anime of the Year 1972 - Dokonjou Gaeru

Dokonjou Gaeru is a great comedy series and the only masterpiece in 1972 for me.   1. Muumin (1972) ムーミン [1972-I] Mushi Production (Dropped 3/52) Tags: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Slice of Life A remake of the 1969-70 Moomin series. This version is more closely based on the books by the Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson.

WN: Omake Tenseisha

Omake Tenseisha is the story of a girl who lived through hell on earth and had a new hell waiting for her when she was tossed aside by the gods and reincarnated again.  For those who have read a Snake's Life or Kumo, this will be a story that is somewhat familiar.  The protagonist is fairly similar to Kumoko (naturally ruthless, tends to think cheerfully most of the time, ends up eating everything that is her enemy, lol).   The story itself is one long 'driven out of a town', 'ate everythin

The Scarlet Healer Review

As for this week VNTS Review title, I just combined 'Scarlet' from Taimanin Kurenai (Translation note: Kurenai mean scarlet) and 'Healer' from newest Alicesoft VN (A Housewife's Healing Touch) so that we have 'The Scarlet Healer' for the title with it has parallel with isekai light novel Black Healer (The novel MC is female with usual otome VN setting). Anyway welcome to this week VNTS Review, and compared to the last week I guess I can say that this week is quite passionate with the number of r

For Elise ~Elise no tame ni~: A Shepard Tone of Realism

Visual novels seem to have gained a dirty reputation as cheap, disposable works of escapism. Often focused on simulating relationships in a digital, anime themed virtual reality. When I think of a visual novel fan with the most vanilla taste, I think of ones that want to be coddled in anime cliches so thick any semblance of reality's discomforts can be forgotten. Among other reasons, I think this is an explanation for why For Elise ~Elise no tame ni~ has been so overlooked. No other visual

Anime of the Year 1970 - Cleopatra

There aren't masterpieces inside 1970 anime for me, but among scores of 6 I'd choose one that has a full English translation, and thus Cleopatra .   1. Attack No.1 アタックNo.1 [1970-I] Tokyo Movie Shinsha (Dropped 3/104) Tags: Shoujo Drama, Sports Kozue is a middleschool girl and enthusiastic volleyball player. Her dream is to play in the Japanese national volleyb

WN: Isekai de Skill o Kaitaishitara Chito no Yome ga Zoushokushimashita

To be blunt, this WN is a straight-out slave harem story in another world.  The protagonist is a run-down salaryman who escaped a black company workplace only to end up summoned to a world where the king was raring to put his summoned heroes to work.  Quite naturally, the protagonist wants nothing to do with this, so he arranges to get himself thrown out of the castle and goes off on his own.   The protagonist, like most summoned heroes, has a unique skill (typical of this kind of story). 

Anime of the Year 1960s - Taiyou no Ouji: Horus no Daibouken

Since I don't like to make separate posts for small things , here are principles that anime list is based on - no anime for kids, no hentai, no anime with episodes under 10 minutes, no OVA that are recaps of series episodes or with length under 30 minutes, no boys love, no non-Japanese language anime.   As for anime of the 1960s, Taiyou no Ouji: Horus no Daibouken is the only masterpiece for me in this period.  

WN: Hazurewaku no "Joutai Ijou Skill" de Saikyou ni Natta Ore ga Subete wo Juurin suru made

This WN, also published in the West as Failure Frame, is a variant on the 'isekai summoning' genre where the summoner is malicious toward the summoned.  This particular sub-genre has become more common of late (since the straight-up good people summon heroes out of desperation setup has gotten stale), but this one stands out to me for the sheer evil and brutality of the antagonist (the goddess) and the protagonist (who is probably the epitome of an anti-hero in its most brutal form).   One

Kamikaze Pilot in Another World Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and for the title since we have Hatsumira with the premise that one of Kamikaze pilot who about to do suicide attack in World War 2 was sent into another world, I'll just parodied a certain isekai work, Veterinarian in Another World, by changing 'Vetenarian' with 'Kamikaze Pilot' so we have 'Kamikaze Pilot in Another World' as the title which admittedly is quite plain. Anyway that aside compared to the last week obviously this time it's more exciting here, thank

WN: Ikidaore no Shoujo o Hirotta to Omottara Mirai no Maou Datta

https://ncode.syosetu.com/n7471fo/34/ This is a very short WN I read on a whim over the course of a few hours.  It is complete for what it is, and what it is isn't what you'd think.  The protagonist is a reincarnator who was reborn in a game world, where he became a rootless traveling mage, sightseeing in the fantasy world he knew from the game.  One day, he comes across a collapsed Dragonkin girl, who turns out to be the demon lord from the game. This story is one of romance and redem

VN of the Month April 2022 - Futamata Ren'ai

Futamata Ren'ai is our only candidate/winner this month.   1. Uchi no Pet Jijou Vol. 1 ウチのペット事情 Vol.1 [220408] Animal Herb 1 Based on the doujinshi series of the same name, this visual novel puts you in the shoes of the protagonist, an unassuming college student who lives by himself. Life goes from ordinary to the extraordinary very quickly when you stumble upon a girl collapsed in front of your apartment building. What makes this even more unusual are the cat ears, tail an

WN: 29sai Dokushin wa Isekai de Jiyuu ni Ikita...katta

This series is a funny little one by the same author as Surviving in another world with Goshujinsama (not to my taste, as the protag is M and a bit of a hetare, but it is really popular in Japan).  The protagonist of this story is randomly transported to another world by a mischievous evil god (Pretty sure her/his real name starts with Nyarl, like most evil gods of this type in otaku stories) and left to his own devices.  Taking advantage of his high growth rate and ability to pick skills to gro

Fairies of a Feather Flock Together Review

As for this week, since we have a new project with the goal to translate the single VN from sprite's branch company (fairy's) along with that we have Ruitomo translation project with the title can be translated as 'Birds of a Feather Flock Together' (Or rather Ruitomo full title is Japanese equivalent of 'Birds of a Feather Flock Together' saying), I decided to change 'Birds' into 'Fairies' so we have 'Fairies of a Feather Flock Together' (For the info, there's also a species of bird called fair

WN: Shinja Zero no Megami-sama to Hajimeru Isekai Kouryaku

This particular WN series falls into the set called 'transference', as opposed to summoning or reincarnation.  The protagonist, Takatsuki Makoto and his classmates freeze to death in a bus buried in an avalanche, only to wake up in another world, inside the Temple of Water, where it is explained to them that they have been saved by the mercy of that world's gods.  They all receive skills and are more powerful than the natives... except for Makoto, whose status doesn't rise when he levels and onl

Afterschool Titania Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and since we have Mahoyo translation announced with the translated version will have voices along with that we have Houkago Cinderella new (Rough) patch released, I decided to make another VA parody in which the 'Titania' part is based on Aozaki Aoko's (Mahoyo MC for the reminder) VA, Tomatsu Haruka, one of her well known role in Sword Art Online as Asuna who at one point got called Titania (Granted that Asuna herself has some trauma in regard of the calling). A

Sakura Cherubim Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title since we have Neko-Mimi Sweet Housemates released along with Sakura Succubus 5 release (Good to see that Winged Cloud still be able to milk Sakura Succubus I suppose) I changed 'Succubus' into 'Cherubim' so we have 'Sakura Cherubim' for the title (The reason is because we have Cherubim as the part of the setting in Neko-Mimi Sweet Housemates). As for this week, initially I thought that this would be a plain one although a certain today annou

Temptation of Stormy Sword Deity Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review and sorry for being very late here. As for the title since we have Onee-chan no Yuuwaku (Translated as Temptation of Older Sister) released I decided to make VA parody in regard of the VA (Momoi Ichigo), so we have 'Temptation of Stormy Sword Deity' as this week review title and for the info Stormy Sword Deity is the title for corrupted Tyrca of Venus Blood Frontier (Tyrca here has two different titles for her two different forms, and I chose her title for her co

Moege sequel   2. Himemiya-san wa Kamaitai 

Blend Shinigami Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as for the title since we have Cafe Stella release and the color of the uniform did remind me of Blend S (The manga that Sol Press only manage to publish one volume of it if you need reminder along with it had the anime adaptation, and that it has cafe setting as well) I decided to parodied it so we have 'Blend Shinigami' as this week review title with 'Shinigami' is from the full title of Cafe Stella (Cafe Stella to Shinigami no Chou). For this week, well l

Blessing from the Goddess and Transfer to Another World

This particular WN falls into a particular sub-genre of isekai where the protagonist is cast out of a group of people summoned as heroes to another world.  This particular genre began to become popular with Shield Hero, but it has evolved significantly since then.   In this WN, the protagonist is summoned along with eight hundred other people from the same school and is one of two people who are not granted a gift from the goddess.  As a result, he is cast out of the castle and driven from
