1. Princess Maker 4プリンセスメーカー4  Gainax 12 The story begins when the player is a soldier. The player falls in love with a mysterious woman. However, she disappears, only to be found by the player few years later. She hands you the child along with Cube (The butler). And so the journey to fatherhood begins...
Princess Maker 4 is highly drama-oriented. Throughout the game, there are various event scenes that offer clues about your daughter's past, not to mention the war between humans and non-humans and her demonic roots. This is probably what differentiates it the most from previous PM games.
The quiet seaside town of Yurigahama is known for its private school that provides female athletes for swimming tournaments on national level. This year school suffers a huge defeat at preliminary competitions, and only ace of girl team Hoshizaki Anon gets a ticket to the nationals.
Her childhood friend boy Hibiki dreams of nationals himself, but after three years of training these dreams gets defeated in an instant. He starts to re-evaluate his life and affinity to the sports. At the same time there is a new face - Suzuna - in the girl swimming team. She is very talented and inspires great hopes for the team. This bittersweet summer Hibiki, Anon and Suzuna will spend alongside. There are only two heroines to capture. It's a provincial story with little excitement, so everyday conversations are being focused on. Not bad, but need to be in the proper nostalgic pure love mood.
The story follows Rino Rando, who has been on her own since the passing of her mother, Chieri, as she transfers to Miyagami Private Academy with the recommendation of her mysterious pen pal, Mr. Poppit. Shortly after her arrival, Rino surprisingly becomes a member of elite group of girls called the Best Student Council. Rino learns that Kanade Jinguji founded Miyagami Private Academy as a place where students can live free from restrictions and that the Best Student Council was formed to ensure that freedom. Best Student Council Members receive free tuition, room and board. The story takes place at Miyagami Private Academy, a mysterious all-girl high school, its student council, the Miyagami Academy Maximum Authority Wielding Best Student Council, also known as the Best Student Council (Gokujou Seitokai), having their own Assault, Covert, and vehicle divisions. This council has more authority power than any of the faculty and staff members. The Best Student Council is divided into the four main divisions: Executive, Assault and Covert plus the Vehicle Squad. Each member of the council has their own special ability, such as special fighting techniques, the gathering of information, or weaponry such as cards, a yo-yo, or, in Rino's case, her hand puppet, Pucchan. It is revealed in an early episode that no one really knows how many members are actually in the best Student Council except the President.
4. Meishoku no Reiki ~Yuruyaka ni Shisuru Ao Sango no Mori~冥色の隷姫 ～緩やかに廃滅する青珊瑚の森～  Eushully 123 Welcome to the world of Meishoku no Reiki, Eushully’s conquest SLG title. You take on the role of Ignat, a badder-than-bad dude who’s like a mix between a dragon and some really messed up demon, and who commands a country that’s comprised of orcs, demons, and various other creatures who are definitely not known for their warm-heartedness and willingness to talk problems over. No, these guys are out for blood, and so are you.
While you take on the role of Igaat, the story doesn’t really take on his character for the narrative. Most of it unfolds through the eyes of Silfietta, the elven heroine, who decided to willingly bring herself to Ignat’s castle as part of a treaty between Zerf Grace (Ignat’s kingdom) and Lua Gracemeil (Silfietta’s kingdom where she is known as a princess). That was one of the two choices that Ignat gave Lua Gracemeil: to either surrender and relinquish their kingdom’s full control over to Zerf Grace, or to hand over Silfietta to Ignat. Silfietta, at the start of the game, is shown willingly bringing herself to Ignat’s kingdom, but is then treated as a mere slave by both Ignat and Tilly, Ignat’s second-in-command. It is then revealed that the reason that Ignat wanted Silfietta was for her magical affinity, as with it, he could make himself much, much stronger. Silfietta then makes a plea with Ignat, that while he is free to obtain as much “magic” from her as he wants, she hopes he will let her keep her virginity intact.

6. Yumemigaoka夢見ヶ丘  FlyingShine This town Yumamigaoka is named after a hill that has a legend about dreams coming true. Town gets largely depopulated, and remaining children have to study elsewhere. But suddenly they get temporally transferred to Yumamigaoka abandoned school. This summer brings nostalgia and hopes for the dreams to come true.
It's basically a story of boys and girls trying to protect Yumamigaoka. The story is drawn through photography. Psychological description of the protagonist is expressed well. Writer enthusiasm is felt even though it's still a boring story about nothing happening. Most of endings with heroines are bittersweet as Yumamigaoka can't win against time and progress.
7. Boku no Taisetsu na Monoぼくのたいせつなもの  TerraLunar Main character is hopelessly ill with many organs not functioning, but he still tries to attend school. He finds joy in watching local idol Yuko smile. But as young people get closer, Yuko reveals a terrible secret that's going to affect protagonist's fate...
It's initially a short bonus story with surprisingly heavy content. It's a serious story that provokes reflexion. It may be called the opposite of Saya no Uta as one character thinks of himself as a thing, a monster and the other one tries to reinstall humanity in him. The H scenes are poorly done and feel alien to the concept of the game it'd be best to cut them out.
8. Izumo 0IZUMO零（ゼロ）  Studio e.go! The year was 1879, 12 years into the Meiji period. The stage was Yokohoma, the gateway of Western influences into Japan. In this era of scientific knowledge and industrialization, an organization of ghost busters was formed. It was the "Police Department Special Squad".
The story follows these six young men and women as they fight against ghostly conspiracies, and learn about friendship, purpose, love, war, and the pursuit of happiness.
The biggest change in the series is that there is no definite protagonist. All six heroes have roughly equal attention. Just as in other Izumo sequels there is no individual route for each character - it's all one flow. There 7 possible combinations of couples. The story and romance are both thin and mostly of comical nature.
9. Kusari鎖  Leaf 123 The stage of this tale is set inside the high speed experimental ship "Basilisk".

10. School Love! ~Soyokaze no Harmony~すくぅ～る・らぶっ！～そよ風のハーモニー～  Abel Over a period of one month, you attempt to both discover your life goal and get some Love Love going with one of the game's busty anime chicks.
Main character returns to Japan temporarily to prove world-famous painter father that he can follow his inspiration and become a great painter himself. Girls are ok, but the story itself is not. Moreover, main character circumstances really take focus out of girls.
11. Yoake Mae yori Ruri Iro na夜明け前より瑠璃色な  August 123456 The story is set in very distant future, in a time when mankind is just recovering from decades of war fought between Earth and a terraformed Moon. The war was so devastating that it set technological progress back by decades if not centuries, which is why the settings don’t look futuristic.

So anyway, one day the lunar princess, Feena fam Earthlight, comes to the protagonist’s house for home stay…

12. Fushigi no Umi no Nadia ~Inherit the Blue Water~ ふしぎの海のナディア ～Inherit the Blue Water～  CyberFront1 Game starts off at the Paris Exposition Universelle (World's Fair) in 1889 where the Eiffel Tower is unveiled to the masses and serves as the gateway into the Fair.

After an encounter with a pair of hoodlums and their redheaded mistress, Nadia and player are inducted into the crew of a submarine named the Eltrium. Part interactive adventure and full-blown submarine action game, Nadia serves as an engrossing experience for fans of the animation.
It's a long story in long story in all 10 episodes, but it's basically a strictly fan thing.
13. Natsu☆Natsuなつ☆なつ  Ankh Main character does not have air conditioner at home this summer, so he decides to take up a part-time job that's applied with one. The workplace he finds is a millionaire mansion, but there is a demand to live there as well - so, it's all for the better. There are also many pretty girls in this mansion...
A bright light comedy that never gets serious. Text feels monotonous and long. Routes have too many common parts, so there's little motivation to clear other heroines after first lap except for H scene.
14. Dancing Craziesダンシング・クレイジーズ  SofthouseChara The protagonist, Minase Akira is living a double life - during the day working as a normal salary man, during the night taking care of criminals as an illegal bounty hunter.
His only wish is his daughter to be safe and to save enough money to open his own shop - but all this thrown into into jeopardy when the past he left behind in the States come back to haunt him.
There are two winning conditions - either survive for X years or gather 10 billion yen. There's a harsh start till powerful characters join you. Fights is the main flavor of the game, and I'm not confident enough to discuss it..
15. Gunjou no Sora o Koete群青の空を越えて  light 12345 You start off as Yashiro, one of the two first rank students in a flight combat school maintained by the army. Japan is split into two factions and the situation is tense, with small battles being held here and there.

Can he save what his father has caused or can he even survive till the end of the war?
There are English reviews. But that won't stop me for reviewing it myself.
Hanachirasu is set in a parallel timeline where nuclear weaponry was never developed. As such, Japan continued to fight through World War II, ending aggressions only when Hokkaido and Kyushu were occupied by Russia and America, respectively. The game itself takes place in early 21st century Tokyo, which has been transformed into a haven for Japanese culture thanks to the nationalistic ideals of the charismatic Ishima Kaigen. Strict policies are in place in to enforce a ban upon firearms within the city limits. Thus, though terrorism and power struggles run rampant, swordplay, not gunfire, claims the lives of those not powerful to stake out their claims here. Our protagonist is one Takeda Akane, a swordsman driven by a desire to face his one true rival, Igarasu Yoshia. What will stand in his path to his goal?
There are English reviews. I did not find a proper video playthrough of this game, but I'm not doing mine either since I do not wish to jeopardize work of currently working Western publishers like JAST, Mangagamer etc. I guess I'll have a variant of capturing initial fan translation at the end of the year poll.

A little bit future. Many schools have been closed down due to decreasing number of children. As a result, the schools have become job training schools for various jobs.
