It's the month of summer Comiket, so let's try to make it through piles of Doujins together. I consider Natsuyume Yawa the masterpiece and winner by default. I'm reviewing Salem no Majo-tachi , but I've yet to develop my opinion on it.
He has a lover, but something misses in his heart. He starts to see strange dreams more and more frequent. As summer vacations draw close he hears in his dream "The day of the appointment is about to come ..."
Development and characters are good enough, but story is basically one road scenario and player will is ignored. Lack of depiction is often encountered, and endings are quite disappointing, as for me.
2. Love Split ~5 Banme no Kisetsu~ Love Split ～5番目の季節～  Rouge Main character has crush on two very different girls since school. Pass a psychology test and start your way to happy college life with one of them.
Story itself is serious and last for a year with all the complimentary year holidays, but quite ero-centered.
3. Salem no Majo-tachi セイレムの魔女たち  Daiginjou Year 1699. A young priest, named Kevin, sailed to the peaceful town in the British colony in the New World. This town's name was Salem. He is yet to know all of the horrors of the Salem's witch-hunt.
Game resembles Slave market the most, especially that additional chapter of Slave market that was added in remake version. Creators are virtually the same. There is more solid history foundation here and overall more interesting development, but you probably won't like this game unless you liked Slave market.
4. Galaxy Angel Moonlit Lovers ギャラクシーエンジェル Moonlit Lovers  Broccoli 12 Moonlit Lovers, revolves around the battles with remnants of Eonia's forces led by General Rezum and later a mysterious woman named Nefyuuria who claimed to be a member of a race called the Val-Fasq. A new member of the Angel-tai, Karasuma Chitose, is also introduced.
There are English reviews.
5. Natsuyume Yawa 夏夢夜話  KID 123 The story centers around a young boy by the name of Reiji Oumi. When his sister suddenly dies, Reiji, along with Kotori and Ryouko each withdraw, not wanting to accept the fact. Years have passed, and the three of them reunite back in their hometown and reminisce on the past events.
Three months later protagonist meets another girl Mayu who can't find her parents. For the time being hero shelters her at his place. As he starts to ask around, his girlfriend Mayu changes appearance somehow. What's the connection between these two Mayu girls?
Raising SIM with horrible system and girl customization. Very poor work.
7. Kattobi! 家飛－カットビ！－  TerraLunar Main character leads a normal life until one day he gets confessed to by his greatest enemy - cousin Kotetsu. Is this a mockery? Then suddenly a big earthquake starts and house gets lifted in the air. And that's only the beginning of a joyful and absurd play that protagonist and his cheerful friends set up.
It's difficult to evaluate the game ... because it's pretty much impossible to understand what's going on. Development is rapid, aggressive and totally beyond laws of logic.
8. Kitsune Iro no Komoriuta きつね色の子守唄  Actress Yushihiro is a university student. During his vacation, his old fashioned parents decide to send him to their home city in order to find a fiancee.
He goes to spend some days in the house of his mother's cousin in order to meet some girls to decide wich one will he marry. Visiting an old xinto shrine of the city, he met Rie, a strange girl who is actually a childhood friend. And she wants to become his fiancee too, even thought she is not even human!
Scenario is very short - it only lasts for 6 days. Each of five heroines has a big number of H events - from three to five. Very inarticulate game.
9. Magistr Temple  light Main character lives alone and leads a normal school life till he meets girl Haruka at the school gate.
Suddenly Haruka becomes assaulted and insulted. A huge robot and glasses girl oppose Haruka and get defeated by her. Haruka turns out to be a magical girl who fights for justice, and she forces protagonist to cooperate. The next day main character awakens and sees Haruka cooking in the kitchen in an apron. She has been kicked out of the house in order to start independent magician life. Protagonist's peaceful house suddenly gets crowded with a lot of girls - either relatives or acquaintances - and all of them decide to live here.
There are 10 episodes - 7 for common route and the rest for individual heroine. True route opens up after all heroines are cleared. Scenario resembles TV show - it tries more just to entertain than to tell a story. It's that case when funny game is not necessarily interesting.
10. Majokko a la Mode 魔女っ娘ア・ラ・モード  F&C FC01 In the Mint Kingdom, there's a magic school called "Twinkle Academy". There, an exam is held in the summer that the students take to test their magical abilities. However, this year the exam will be taken in pairs... and you need a partner! You need to pursue one of the six heroines so you can do the exam... and maybe something else!
As F&C likes it, there are SIM elements in the form of repeating everyday activities to raise favorability. And it's all for the sake of picture - it's indeed of superb quality rivaling even modern visual novel graphics.
11. Night Demon -Yume Oni- ナイトデーモン－夢鬼－  Alice Soft One day, suddenly a phenomenon called "Tsuzuki" appeared all over the world.
The phenomenon came without warning. It looked like a bridge of pastel light ran across the sky, with a mixture of pink, green and yellow.There seemed to be something lurking behind the bridge... After the first sudden appearance, "Tsuzuki" started to show up over the sky without any forewarning sign. And it could be anywhere in world, never stayed in the same place. At the same time, mysterious creatures started to show up. They had the same appearance as human, could talk and even had human emotion. However, they still apparently felt very different from human. Gradually, these creatures were called "Yumegami" and being feared by everyone. Amidst all this, the protagonist Shuka was working as a bartender at "69" (Six nine) bar...
It's a regular visual novel without gameplay elements, but this time even Carnelian could not save the game alone. There is a lot of movement, so pace suffers. There is ridiculous number or ridiculous meaningless endings that have to be cleared in order to reach True route. Occult flavor legend that makes core of the work does not really impress. Individual heroines apart of main heroine are given really little time rendering all of them some side-characters. Without the charm of characters all the dialogues feel dry. Carnelian can't really do it all for you...
12. Please teach! My Angel  Petit Pajamas Main character witnesses an angel coming down from the sky in a nearby park. She turns out to be a new teacher appointed from the heavens in order to qualify for heavens teacher in future. She proposes to live with protagonist in order to prevent her identity leak. With such angel older sister and pretty and obedient imouto their crazy life begins.
There are only two routes, but each lasts for 2 months, so volume is sufficient. H element is quite high and dark, but nothing extreme. Light enjoyable game, but not for those looking for a decent scenario.
13. Shiki to Hitsuji to Warau Tsuki ~Cry for the Moon~ 屍姫と羊と嗤う月～cry for the moon～  BaseSon Atsushi is an ordinary high school student, spending his time with his friends and living peacefully. But triggered by meeting with four girls, his life starts to change gradually.... It is supposed to be a good change but a rape case happens at school, a classmate suddenly goes mad and a student dies mysteriously.... They are all led by a cursed stone....
There are four heroines and routes differ from each other a lot - one may be funny and the other one absolutely depressing. Just as with One2 a great variety is presented, so everyone will find something to like and something to hate here.
14. Shiritsu Akihabara Gakuen 私立アキハバラ学園  Frontwing 1 The player takes the role of Touma Souichirou, a high school student that transfers into an academy that his younger sister currently attends. Much to his surprise, this academy is actually located in Akihabara, and caters to every possible type of otaku around. Even the teachers themselves are some type of otaku (the principal dresses like a Noface, made famous in Miyazaki movies, while one of the teachers crossplays and talks like Lum from Urusei Yatsura). In a weird twist, our protagonist is a bit of a closet otaku and has a hard time fitting in at first, mostly due to his inability to open up about his tastes in anime and games.
