VN of the Month March 2004 - Remember11 -The Age of Infinity-

Remember11 -The Age of Infinity- is VN of the Month. Symphonic Rain is an honorary masterpiece. I got tempted by Japanese reviews praising story of Sora-iro no Organ , so I took it for review.

1. Oshikake Princess おしかけプリンセス [040305] Giant Panda
c31452sample3.jpg
Warring states era. 
Local daimyo Asakawa is killed in an enemy state assault. His real daughter manages to secretly escape with five vassals. But she fails to give birth to a boy, and hopes for house revival remain only hopes. When boy with Asakawa blood finally is born, it's already modern times. The descendants of the largest five vassals are all girls studying at one school. It's finally the time to fix historical injustice!
The setting looks super funny to me. But since girls are vassals and not rivals - they all easily start to live under one roof together. The individual scenarios are above average, and history parallels are thought of seriously. The whole revival thing gets lost as individual scenarios start, but there's no clear emphasis on either scenario or routes. Most of game's elements are good, but there's no integrity to produce an impact.

 

2. Remember11 -The Age of Infinity- [040318] KID 1 2 3 4 5 6
8tnu01000000wc9k.jpg
Fuyukawa Kokoro, a third-year sociology major, boards a plane bound for Hokkaido to meet a research subject in the Specified Psychiatric Hospital for Isolation and Aegis, or SPHIA. For unknown reasons, her plane crashes in the mountains in the middle of a snowstorm. Of the 31 passengers, only she, Kusuda Yuni, Yomogi Seiji, and Mayuzumi Lin survive unharmed. Unable to establish communication with the outside world due to the fierce snowstorm, the four decide to take shelter in an empty cabin and wait until the storm passes.
Yukidoh Satoru, a graduate student in the field of quantum physics, falls from the SPHIA clock tower. He later awakens with some memory loss and the realization that someone is out to kill him. Unable to leave the SPHIA facility due to a snowstorm, Satoru's only chance at living is to find that person among the three other residents (or perhaps the hidden culprit) of SPHIA.
Shortly after, Kokoro and Satoru realize that they are somehow exchanging bodies and Yuni appears to be at both of their locations...
There are English reviews.

 

3. Angel Maid エンジェルメイド [040319] Carriere
c37223sample6.jpg
Main character wakes up in an unfamiliar house and with no memory. He is taught the work from the maids and starts to work on a regular basis. However, his judgment ability is lacking and he ends up creating more work for the maids to tackle. He spends his days in such activities while trying to regain his memory...
Scenario is a mess, mostly for maid-lovers... H element is strong. Even a small mistake leads to a bad ending, but you need to get to the end to learn it

 

4. Fortune Cookie フォーチュンクッキー [040319] Smart
c41512sample1.jpg
Main character is an ordinary boy with a pretty face. Mother is extremely unlucky, so it's elder sister who supports the family.
One day mother gets premonition of "a great misfortune" during next month. Is it possible to avoid it? Can it really get even worse?
Full-scale incest game with mother and two sisters. There is a complex explanation of family circumstances in order to show it as non-blood related incest. There are 7 to 10 H scenes for each heroine, which is A LOT for a pure love game.

 

5. Happy Planning ~Shiawase no Souwa~ Happy Planning~しあわせの総和~ [040319] Juno
Siawase_019.jpg
The amount of happiness on the Earth is always kept constant, and becoming happy makes a lot of people unhappy. So says the cheerful childhood friend of main character. 
Protagonist loses track of her, but reunites with her at school. Her personality becomes grim as she does not want to steal other people's happiness. Is it possible to break out from this depressing theory and bring light to her heart?
The rapid development in the latter heart and the stupid resolution as "miracle  of love" really drag this game down. Character settings are slightly different from one route to another just for the sake of writer's convenience. That all puts Happy Planning in the kusoge area.

 

6. Jewels Ocean ジュエルスオーシャン [040319] Escu:de 1 2
battle.jpg
On a cold and mysterious night, five precious stones fell from the sky, each unintentionally discovered by five innocent girls. Unbeknownst to them, chaotic forces seek to retrieve these jewels, for they are the Demon Stones: apocalyptic artifacts capable of imbuing great power, yet at the cost of one’s sanity and soul. But all is not lost, for there is an individual who seeks to protect these gems and their bearers from these antagonists, regardless of the cost.
There is an English review.

 

7. Steady x Study ステディ×スタディ [040325] Idea Factory Co., Ltd.
bandicam%2B2019-07-05%2B14-37-34-532.jpg
You play as Makoto, a transfer student attending a school in Harajuku. You're not sure of what you want to do with your life and are given many choices, from entering the performing arts club, to going hardcore with your studies. Your choice will determine the path the game's story follows.
Steady X Study makes use of the "ASV" (Around Search View) system that allows you to look around your environment. While sitting at your desk in class, you can press a button on the D-pad to look at the girls sitting next to you. While waiting to meet someone at the train station, you can look around and will likely find new things, including secret movies and events.
Yet another console generic SOL visual novel with some another revolutionary system for only additional frustration. Scenario is a mess, and I can't think of target audience of this fraud.

 

8. Filnansis フィルナンシス [040326] Emu
88198.jpg
Mother warns main character to return home straight from school on his birthday day. Day passes just as usual, but he is delayed on the way home by the conversation with his childhood friend.
He find only wreckage on the place of his home with a note that makes no sense. Three girls suddenly appear and claim that protagonist is the successor of their country Grandfold where only girls live. He does not believe them until they take him to this country... 
Bakage with a meaningless scenario, horrible sound tracks and useless protagonist. Game is universally marked as a kusoge.

 

9. Sora-iro no Organ 空色の風琴 [040326] The Lotus 1
c16454table3.jpg
You and I are an octave apart. Will we be able to harmonize...?
The night the ocean wind blew, your organ reflected the moonlight. 
Our fingers came apart, a four-leaf clover broke into pieces, and I saw a lamp shining
through the door...
Our hero tutors his cousin Sarasa, a beautiful young girl.
One night, as Sarasa begins to play the organ, they are covered with a strange light. 
When our hero comes to, he finds himself in a small town called Alcio.
He learns that any stranger discovered in town will be executed.
Can our hero find Sarasa and return where they belong?
Will he succeed in filling the emotional gap between Sarasa and himself?
The story progresses with a variety of colorful scenery and beautiful organ sounds. The scenario contains painstaking details of the strange world of Alcio, such as festivals and religious ceremonies. Utmost attention has been paid to character creation. You will experience the fantastic, yet realistic world of Alcio and the relationships of characters there
A decent-looking game. There is no better candidate for review this month, so I'm taking it up for review.

 

10. Symphonic Rain シンフォニック=レイン [040326] Kuroneko-san Team 1 2 3 4 5 6
112381.jpg
Symphonic Rain takes place in a fictional city of apparently Italian heritage, where rain falls everyday. The locals there have adapted to this peculiar phenomenon, and carry on with their lives as if the rain was never there. No one takes an umbrella, no one wears a rain coat.
The main character of the story is 17 year old Chris, a Fortelle student of the famous Piova Communal School of Music (Scuola Comunale di Musica Piova, in Italian). Separated from his childhood sweetheart Arietta when he left his home town for the city, he keeps in touch with her through the means of weekly letters. Penning their thoughts on those letters, Chris treasures and keeps her weekly writings, for he had promised her that should his drawer become totally filled with them, he would return to her.
The game starts during Chris's third year as a student, a few months before he has to take the school's final graduation examination: a staged performance. As an instrumentalist, he is required to search for a vocalist partner before he is eligible for the examination.
There are English reviews.

Doujin

 

5. Make Love Junkies メイクラヴ・ジャンキース [040312] Ignition
Imagine a miracle drug that can turn any self-respecting person into a sex-crazed deviant. Furthermore, imagine the drug has a name as ridiculous as “Make Love Junkies”. In this H-game, this drug is real, and it was mailed to our protagonist after ordering it off TV. It has such a peculiar potency that those affected still retain their mental faculties, but they are hardly in control of their starving bodies. That being said, our hero decides to make a harem consisting of a few women he’s had his eyes on, whether they’d like to or not. Two of these intended are classmates; those two also work as waitresses with another target; and finally there’s the literature teacher. At first our heroines aren’t so keen to get it on with our hero, but soon they’ll be giving themselves into the pleasure. That is, if you play your cards right (not too difficult with a miracle aphrodisiac).

As for your opinion on both of Remember11 and Symphonic Rain there, I agree that both of the releases are good even though Remember11 did have the problem in regard of the ending because apparently there's a conflict between the production members. While for Symphonic Rain, too bad that Ritsuko Okazaki can't watch her work being officially released at Steam seeing that she was passed away back at 2004. I just hope that those two VN will be more well known, especially the latter seeing that I'd find Symponic Rain songs is quite good.
