    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

Anime of the Year 1997-IV Fall - Kenpuu Denki Berserk

Kenpuu Denki Berserk is inevitably the winner here, but I also favor Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi II as a firm masterpiece because it's the rare sequel that even surpasses great original. Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Ishinshishi e no Chinkonka can be considered as borderline masterpiece.   1. Kenpuu Denki Berserk Berserk 剣風伝奇ベルセルク [OLM] (Finished 25/25) Tags: Seinen Gore, Military

Anime of the Year 1997-III Summer - Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

I ended up giving the same masterpiece scores to Mononoke Hime and Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion , but the latter prevails as it's more psychological.    1. Rekka no Honoo Flame of Recca 烈火の炎 [Pierrot] (Finished 3/42) Tags: Shounen Martial Arts, Super Power Action, Adventure Most people think that ninjas are a thing of the past, but Rekk

Anime of the Year 1997-II Spring - Hyper Police

No masterpiece as it often happens. If I compare enjoyment level of those that I rated higher than others, I'd nominate Hyper Police as it's at least logical, easy-going and with memorable characters though episodic   1. Shoujo Kakumei Utena Revolutionary Girl Utena 少女革命ウテナ [J.C.Staff] (Finished 11/39) Tags: Mahou Shoujo, Psychological Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Mystery

VNTS commentary 2022-12-11-27

Since Hata has been rip for various personal and emotional reasons this week, he ended up not being able to post the VNTS. I, however, was not so encumbered, so I wrote my commentary Monday night. Rather than lose it to time entirely, I'll post it here. No, I'm not doing the formatting. You can have the vnts data if you must though. I'll throw in bolded tags for the new stuff but no headings for you! This is a low effort post.   「Hello everyone. I am again writing this on Monday so that

Accomplishments of the Gravure Model Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (04/12/2022) Because we have Lover Pretend in which it finally has the villainess otome VN character (Even if for one route only) and said character work as the gravure model, I made reference of a certain 'reincarnated into villainess otome' manga, Accomplishments of the Duke's Daughter, by changing 'Duke's Daughter' into 'Gravure Model' so we have 'Accomplishments of the Gravure Model' as this week VNTS Review title. Anyway welcome to this week VNTS Review,

Anime of the Year 1997-I Winter - Eat-Man

Among the decent works, Eat-Man probably deserves more praise than the others for novely approach   1. Yuusha-Ou GaoGaiGar King of Braves GaoGaiGar 勇者王ガオガイガー [Sunrise] (Finished 3/49) Tags: Mecha Adventure, Sci-Fi In the year 2005, a race of alien monsters called Zonders emerge from underground and launch a series of attacks on the city of Tok

VN of the Month November 2022

Don't think it's right to nominate games shortly after release. Let's wait for reviews or even write them ourselves.   1. Akuma to Yoru to Isekai to 悪魔と夜と異世界と [221125] WendyBell Main character encounters a devil girl Alice and agrees to bind a contract with her about life-long absolute obedience and soul transfer to Alice after death. He starts working at her coffee shop together with half-dem

Anime of the Year 1996-IV Fall - Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi

Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi surprised me a lot with modern isekai concept and really good humor while having next to zero ecchi despite the plot - felt like a firm masterpiece during watching .    1. Hana yori Dango 花より男子  [Toei Animation] (Finished 3/51) Tags: Shoujo Love Polygon, School Drama, Romance Makino Tsukushi, a girl who comes from a poor family, just want

Anime of the Year 1996-III Summer - Akachan to Boku

Rather sour season again, but among the titles I find Akachan to Boku as the most deserving one   1. Akachan to Boku Baby and Me 赤ちゃんと僕 [Pierrot] (Finished 3/35) Tags: Shoujo Childcare Comedy, Drama Takuya Enoki is living a difficult life for a fifth grader. His mother passed away in a tragic car accident a few months ago, forcing him to pick up the slack and take c

The Helpful Maid Eve-san Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and since we have Love Lab released Maid Loving You, I'll just parodied the recently finished The Helpful Kitsune Senko-san because I remember that manga after I read Maid for Loving You premise (Especially with both male MC are office workers), so we have 'The Helpful Maid Eve-san' as the title because we obviously have a maid and said maid name is Eve. As for this week, while obviously there's Mangagamer announcements along with some other releases and new pro

Anime of the Year 1996-II Spring - Kodomo no Omocha (TV)

No definite winner for me , but among decent titles I can point out Kodomo no Omocha (TV)    1. Tenkuu no Escaflowne The Vision of Escaflowne 天空のエスカフローネ [Sunrise] (Finished 3/26) Tags: Isekai, Love Polygon, Mecha, Psychological Adventure, Fantasy, Romance Hitomi Kanzaki is just an ordinary 15-year-old schoolgirl with an interest in tarot cards and fortune telling, but

Amnesia: Memories Review - A Wonderland Of Love And Paranoia

This is a condensed version of the full review which can be found on my Main Blog Here. Genre – Otome, Mystery, Drama.   Play Time – 35 hours.   Developer – Otomate and Design Factory.    Steam     VNDB   Reinvigorating The Cliché   Using amnesia as plot device is a common tactic by many creators who want to put the protagonist on the same level as the player, but its use rarely goes beyond being an excuse for exposition. Enter Amnesia: Memories, as you might have been a

Towa's Bizarre Adventure: Mithril is Unbreakable Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (20/11/2022) Since Slow Damage MC (Towa) VA is also Josuke's VA from Jojo Part 4 (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable), I may as well made some Jojo reference here by obviously change 'Jojo' with 'Towa', so we have 'Towa's Bizzare Adventure' here. As for 'Mithril', it's from Soukoku no Arterial in that it has the setting that the major company in the game has been produced mithril as their main source of income, so I'd change 'Diamond' into 'Mith

Anime of the Year 1996-I Winter - Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan

No masterpieces found, but the closest one to it in Winter 1996 is Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan    1. Dragon Ball GT ドラゴンボールGT [Toei Animation] (Finished 3/64) Tags: Shounen Super Power Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi Emperor Pilaf finally has his hands on the Black Star Dragon Balls after years of searching, which are said to be twice as powerful

Tokeijikake no Rakuen Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (13/11/2022) Like back at my last VNTS Review when Tokeijikake Daybreak released, once again I decided to make parody of one of Grisaia VN and obviously it's Grisaia no Rakuen. The reason is simply because Rakuen here is the last part of Grisaia trilogy and Tokeijikake Morning Mist here is also the last part of the trilogy, so we have 'Tokeijikake no Rakuen' as this week VNTS Review title. Anyway welcome to this week VNTS Review and compared to the last week

Anime of the Year 1995-IV Fall - Koukaku Kidoutai

Koukaku Kidoutai is the second genius masterpiece I can proclaim , plus this season sees the start of Neon Genesis Evangelion even though its first half was not outstanding   1. Neon Genesis Evangelion 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン  [Gainax, Tatsunoko Production] (Finished 26/26) Tags: Mecha, Psychological Action, Avant Garde, Award Winning, Drama, Sci-Fi, Suspense Fifteen years after a

The Bad Ending – An Anatomy of Visual Novels

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   When Everything Goes Wrong   A good story is often defined by its ending and a bad one can be redeemed by it. Visual novels are no exception to this rule and must contend with this opportunity multiple times over the course of the game. The most common form of endings used in visual novels are the Good and True Endings, but there are also some games which use Bad Endings. This kind of e

Random Translation: Anata no Tenshoku wa 'Daiyoukai' Desu Chapter 2

[Hey, your Mom is an evil woman (toxic woman)!] [I... I can't argue with that.] (Move... Move!  Move!  Move, please!  If I don't move now...!!) He tries to move his legs to get away from the three approaching him. However, he can't move. His body won't move an inch.  It is as if he's being tied down by an invisible something. (What is this!?  What is this!?  This is... what is it...?  It's as if I'm being enveloped in something...) At that moment, something was refl

Hyouko Screaming Show Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (06/11/2022) As for this week title, since we've about to have Gore Screaming Show (GSS) release in a week along with a big update in regard of Lupercalia, I'd change the word 'Gore' with 'Hyouko' so we have 'Hyouko Screaming Show'. The reason is because in Lupercalia we have a theater actress Hyouko recite her lines, and she recite it by screaming so yeah it's literally the screaming show (The video of Hyouko recite her lines). Welcome to this week VNTS Revi

October 2022 Reviews & Articles

『••••• RECAP •••••』 In the blink of an eye, spooky month is over... 👻 Last month was more of an art month for me. Hopefully I will be getting back to getting more review and article writing done this month. Anyway, in my first blog post here, I said I was going to focus on only visual novel content for this newsletter-like blog. I then realized the blogs on Fuwanovel forums can be used for pretty much anything! So I am going to do just that; I won't be just sharing my reviews and artic

To the Blue Universe Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (30/10/2022) Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and if I may conclude this week I can definitely say that it's an interesting one because of Nekonyan's announcements, although I can't exactly say that it's an exciting one because some of the announcements are smaller compared to their previous announcements. That said though besides Nekonyan's announcements (That I still look forward into), we also have several releases with the most notable one is Alpha Night
