After trying both of them, I dropped Anata o Otoko ni Shiteageru and Sankai, for similar reasons. However, this leaves me with two VNs that have varying levels of interest from the community to play... Island by Frontwing and Wagamama High Spec by Madosoft.
Madosoft... produces thematic VNs, rather than your standard charage. They pick a theme and unify all the heroines into that type. This tends to have pretty awful results so far (both Yakimochi and Namaiki were kusoge, though they were fairly popular with the fans of older-style moege), so I'm honestly not hopeful for the VN.
Island... I plan to give it a chance, and I'm honestly hopeful for it, after reading up on it.
