    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

VN of the Month February 2024

Surprisingly adequate number of titles in February, so I could safely cut couple titles that would fit otherwise (notably, Alice49 EP.0 "Diamond to Shukurimu" and 5fungo ni Igai na Ketsumatsu Monochrome no Toshokan).   1. Haison Sansaku-Kai Katsudou Kiroku 廃村散策会活動記録 [240203] mokosoft  He wanders into the village and comes face to face with the

Polyamorous Endings – An Anatomy Of Visual Novels

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   A Relationship With Many Sides   When it comes to relationships most forms of media present monogamous pairings as the normal and rarely explore beyond this line of thinking and when they do the presentation of the opposite extreme is generally negative. Enter the visual novel, here is a space where polyamorous relationships are given an equal examination to their more traditional peers

The Butterfly, the Magician and the Wardrobe Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (18/02/2024) Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and as you can see we have a number of releases in this week so obviously this week is a very interesting one. Release wise, the most interesting one to me is obviously Irotoridori, although Nukitashi 2 release is also interesting on it's own. Other than the releases, Shiravune also shown to be quite aggressive in their announcements. Let's see what I can write in regard of this week, and I'll tell about the titl


Visual Novel Translation Status (11/02/2024) Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and because we're about to have Nukitashi 2 release I parodied it's opening song, BWLAUTE BEIRRD, by changing 'BEIRRD' into 'BEURTTERFLY'. For the info, Nukitashi 2 opening song title is the arrangement of 'Blue Water Bird' word, so in here I arranged the word 'Blue Water Butterfly'. As for why I chose butterfly, I'll speak about it later, but it's interesting to note that Shinsou Noise writer is also write Butte

School Slice Of Life – Genre Deep Dive

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   The Brilliant Days Of Youth?   Of all the genres that dominate the visual novel space there are none which can compete with the behemoth of school slice of life. Beyond the many games utilising it as their core narrative element, many others use it as a secondary pillar to ground their more fantastical or emotional genres and give them an easily recognisable touch point with the player.

Lycoris Struggle Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (04/02/2024) Because we have Shuuen no Virche FD announced with the subtitle 'Epic:Lycoris' along with we have the exact release date for Tengoku Struggle, I combine both word so we have 'Lycoris Struggle' as this week VNTS Review title. Anyway, this week we have Aksys Games very active with they announced four new title at once, although unfortunately it's only for console. Another thing to note is obviously Aniplex finally make their big move in regard of T

Real Orgy Experience Review

Visual Novel Translation Status (28/01/2024) Welcome to this week VNTS Review. As for the title because we have Shiravune announce Real Eroge Experience 2 along with Cherry Kiss announce their newest nukige, Otoko Orgy at Maid Boy Manor, I figure that I'll just make the parody for the former, so we have 'Real Orgy Experience' as the title. If you ask me what I'd think about this week, then my answer would be that it's another below average one, but at least we have one release compared to t

Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! A – The Afterlife Of A Game Series

This is a condensed version of the full review which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   Genre – School Life, Comedy, Romance    Play Time – 10-15 per game    Developer – Minato Soft    VNDB   When Only Characters Remain   Once a game series has given all the stories it can, what remains to be extracted from it? Perhaps you expand the world by adding a new setting or maybe you introduce an exciting new threat. The answer the Majikoi A games have settled on is to f

LoveKami -Corrupted Harem- Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and because we have a fan finally working on 18+ patch for Lovekami trilogy along with we have Venus Blood Ragnarok translation announcement with it has the gameplay corrupting the heroine, I made the parody for one of Lovekami VN, Healing Harem, by changing 'Healing' into 'Corrupted'. so we have 'LoveKami -Corrupted Harem-' as the title. As for this week, let's just say that it's below average one bordering plain, but at least Shiravune show some activity even

Fake Ragnarok at 4 AM Review

Since we have Ninetail planned the Kickstarter for Venus Blood Ragnarok along with a fan released the less known VN with the title 'Fake World's End at 4 AM', I decided to make the parody for the later by changing 'World's End' into 'Ragnarok' so we have 'Fake Ragnarok at 4 AM', which is quite fitting because Ragnarok is known as the big war happening when the world is about to end according to Norse mythology. Anyway, for this week, let's just say that it's too bad that Steam decided to ban Ten

Character Customisation – An Anatomy Of Visual Novels

This is a condensed version of the full article which can be found on my Main Blog Here.   What Shall I Be Today   There is a tendency in visual novels to have some degree of self insert aspect in their protagonists due to the prevalence and intensity of first person narratives. Some of them take this to its natural conclusion by giving the player a means of deciding parts of the character they are going to inhabit and these manifest as customisation options. They range from

Funbag Native Isekai Review

Welcome to the first VNTS Review in 2024, and once again Happy New Year. For the title, since we have Funbag Fantasy 4 update from Mangagamer, I figure may as well parodied the title by changing the word 'Fantasy' into 'Native Isekai' with 'Native Isekai' term is the meme that was happen when some people did mentioned fantasy anime as native isekai anime (Know Your Meme page on it), so we have 'Funbag Native Isekai' as the title. Anyway for the first week of 2024, that incident aside I suppose I

Anime of the Year 2017-IV Fall - Juuni Taisen

There's a scattering of minor masterpieces : Blend S , Inuyashiki , 3-gatsu no Lion 2nd Season , Juuni Taisen and Wo Shi Jiang Xiaobai with Juuni Taisen probably leaving the biggest impact on me.   1. Black Clover ブラッククローバー  [Pierrot] (Finished 5/170) Tags: Shounen Action, Comedy, Fantasy  Asta and Yuno were abandoned at the same church on the same da

Fate/Twilight Revolution Review - Top 10 Best Rated Visual Novels Translated in 2023

Welcome to my list of best-rated translated visual novels in 2023, with the world back to normal after the pandemic. Of course, we still have several translated VN releases, even though the title is not as big as in several past years. But if anything else, seeing Mahoyo being available on Steam means Type-Moon showed an interest in releasing their translated VN on PC, which is quite interesting. Also, I'm sorry if some of your favorite VNs are not on the list because I may be a bit subjective i

Anime of the Year 2017-III Summer - Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e is a great crafty series. Made in Abyss goes only slightly behind. Knight's & Magic is a curious small, but surprisingly enjoyable thing.    1. Kakegurui 賭ケグルイ  [MAPPA] (Finished 3/12) Tags: Shounen High Stakes Game, Psychological, School, Strategy Game Drama, Mystery Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkao

2023 in review feat. Tadoku logs

Probably best viewed on my wordpress blog given the gallery element used. Academically this year has been a meme. I’ve managed to fail both courses I tried due to Not Doing Work, and also somehow bricked on getting an actual CV to apply for thesis projects. Twice. More importantly though, in February this year Tadoku added any-time tracking. While there are many tracking platforms and systems, Tadoku is likely the only one I will ever use semi-seriously: the minimalism appeals to me, a
