Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~ finally can be considered a masterpiece as story actually moves somewhere this time. Micchi sees some merit in Iro ni Ide ni keri Waga Koi wa .

1. Eien no Ikusa Hime 永焔の戦姫 [100413] Eushully
76582.jpg
Eien no Ikusa Hime contains the novelized versions of Ikusa Megami Zero, Genrin no Kishougun and Genrin no Kishougun 2 for those who want to jump into Verita without missing the previous story developments.
Remake without gameplay parts

 

2. Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~ 暁の護衛 ~罪深き終末論~ [100422] Syangrila 1 2 3 4 
4b6b13e85edf70ab235b4093d9983d1a1cfa78b9b1c4e1d4feca5f89f6d734f4.png
With helicopters in the air and thousands of police surrounding the ‘forbidden area’, where those who aren’t recognized as humans reside, the normal lives of Kaito and his friends is coming to an end.
There are English reviews.

 

3. Ikusa Megami Verita 戦女神VERITA [100423] 1 2 3 4 5 6 Eushully
8352.jpg
The wandering God-Slayer Serika, who's still searching for his purpose. The half-demon king of Menfill, Loui, who just won the war, but lost his wife in it. This is the story of two infamous heroes and how their paths in life inevitably cross each other, and the conflict that it brings. While on the backdrop of the setting, various ancient forces rear their head and the temple of Marsterrie starts moving.
RPG is localized and has English reviews

 

4. Kokoro no Sumika ココロの住処 [100423] Yatagarasu
65796b86178f3b1fde2d9888f6906a3cba3e49489818027e550a0585de4043f7.png
Chihiro likes his imouto Rina, but she doesn’t want him around. In fact, Rina loves her older sister Matsuri, who in turns likes Chihiro! In the midst of this (taboo?) love triangle, their scientist parents sent them some packages and Chihiro opened them and found some weird stuff. His father returns shortly after with a strange girl and introduces her as an android named Kokoro.
Heartwarming love comedy that keeps being nice only before individual  routes. Graphics is very uneven. Low budget - low quality - is felt everywhere..

 

5. Noblesse Oblige ノーブレスオブリージュ [100423] Clock Up
f11205baa39b79303422285316bbd5d9962672c1bf495cde6341b0b6619153b6.webp
Kouji was surprised when a beautiful girl appeared one day and said that she would be his maid. Yuria is part of the famous maid servant group called “Noblesse Oblige” (N.O.) which caters to the wealthy and famous. His grandmother had told him that wanted him to be the most loved in the world, but he never expected to have a maid servant. Not only that but shortly after, another girl showed up, as well as his childhood friend Ayana. What is going on here?
Non-nukige Clock Up work? Seriously? Don't get hopes up. Setting of super-maids is not explained. No serious story is developed, as expected. Maids provide all kinds of service and excel at everything, so H tilt is inevitable, 5-6 H scenes per heroine.

 

6. Chou Jikuu Bakuren Monogatari ~door pi chu~ 超時空爆恋物語~door☆pi☆chu~ [100428] PrimRose
1.jpg
Yoshitsune lives with his childhood friends, sisters Orihime and Otohime. Otohime likes delving in black magic and one day makes a drug that bend space and time. Yoshitsune ends up getting this power and summons lots of historical figures. However, he can’t make them return to their original time, so they end up living together with him.
Comedy with celebrities of the past like Kleopatra as sub-heroines (what a shameful stealing from GIDYY), but reality acquaintances as main heroines. Good light funny game if you can appreciate such smelly concept.

 

7. Marriage Royale ~Prism Story~ マリッジロワイヤル ~プリズムストーリー~ [100428] Vridge Inc.
57176.jpg
Marriage Royale's story revolves around the male protagonist, a high school student named Hinomoto Tsukasa, who is told one day by his parents that he was adopted. Furthermore, they tell him that his real father is a manager of a large company, meaning he is very rich and holds a lot of power. Tsukasa's real father wants his son to marry a good woman, so he sets up an event known as Marriage Royale where beautiful girls from all over Japan will come together at a school built especially for the event and vie to become Tsukasa's fiancé. The school is located on an isolated island near Japan, and Tsukasa himself is taken there to live in a mansion in the care of two twin maids: Miku, the elder sister, and Miu, the younger sister.
There are various paths the player can take in the game beyond the main marriage path provided that the player fulfills the correct requirements to open those paths up. These paths are designated by different colors and include a red route which involves investigating dangerous ruins and a yellow route which involves the girls aiming to be idols.
Another PSP crap with all kinds of sugary banalities pushed together.

 

8. Iro ni Ide ni keri Waga Koi wa 色に出でにけり わが恋は [100429] Windmill 1 2 3
2a571caef1be40ef3bf0e35425a286d4619be3db5e2f46b0669a2fb6b385261c.png
Autumn has arrived in Tenshin and Yuuto is attending the prestigious Reimeikan girls’ school since his old school closed due to financial difficulties. He lives at a shrine, so he helps out occasionally. One day, he was asked to be an observer for a duel between two Tenjou sisters, Rio and Kikyou, to decide on who is deemed the successor of the family. However, there was an accident and somehow Rio ends up living with him.
I tend to block games with sudden cohabitation plots, and Windmill has rather poor reputation, so expect an ordinary moege. To make things worse, protagonist is pretty much a pervert. This all gives room to many silly gags.

 

9. Acchi Muite Koi アッチむいて恋 [100430] ASa Project
be5a1d28dbd868f02ef651cd2972d5a92e49de31da6caabf3b2ad3c451a69155.jpg
Kousuke just transferred into rural Harusaki Gakuen, but the school accidentally didn’t reserve a room for him. After much searching he found a free room, but it’s at a girls’ dorm! Thus begins his double life: as a boy at school and as a girl named Mae in the dorm. A pretty common scenario, and one in which his cover is bound to be blown eventually. However, he has his imouto Runa on his side, who followed him to the dorm so that no other girl can take her oniichan away. Also, the most ojousama-like chara in the school is actually a trap.
The obligatory trap game of the month. Pretty ordinary stuff with humor concentrated in common route.

 

10. Custard Cream Taiyaki カスタードクリームたい焼き [100430] Axis 
e150c753f52173b2a317649b71a71e0d500ae1b55a0b741d00c9ab2549bf8247.png
One day while returning home, Raikou gets in trouble and meets his childhood friend Aira who he hadn’t seen since he was small. He wondered why she came back and she said that she has an arranged marriage with him, however she just wants to keep her promise with him. The next day, Aira transfers into his school and announces to everyone that she’ll be marrying him, which surprises everyone since no one knows of their relationship. Aira moves in his house, as well as Kanae and Ayaka, since they find Aira too suspicious.
It all very soon turns into a harem with uninteresting characters.

 

11. Floating Material -The Hill Where the Star Born.- Floating Material (フローティング マテリアル) -The hill where the star born.- [100430] Biscotti
44ef92c2b30e2779058ec7e4ddf12843d3880aaa21452b73a9dc5878e07f12df.jpg
Shun is the only male teacher at Kyoukasen Girls’ School, a well-known high class school also known as the “Water School” since it is situated in a forest and there is a lake on the school grounds. It is a place to heal the wounds of those girls who are hurt. He meets girls who shut off themselves from the world, those who don’t have confidence in themselves, those who are still traumatized by their past. He decides to help them move forward with their lives.
Heroines are just cute, but without appealing personalities or charm. Not the worst work especially if you like healing games, but definitely mediocre.

 

12. Ikinukissa ~Kakushiaji ni Ai o~ イキヌキッ茶~隠し味に愛を~ [100430] Noir Soft
b5c09a8915a7373358406ecbf7b14f75d616364f0313f27218f9d3b1b181a374.png
There are various girls at my cafe. Which girl will you choose? You can spend your time freely here! Enjoy...
Plain and simple, it's a nukige, no block only because it's not 100% clear from synopsis.

 

13. Neko☆Koi! ~Nekogami-sama to Nekomimi no Tatari~ ねこ☆こい!~猫神さまとネコミミのたたり~ [100430] Whirlpool 1
6590bc1b47c435e00335cfe5bdb2a8b479f60b630fd510c8b4c2a2242a37f403.jpg
Tsukasa is the head of the Toono shrine, which he and his sister Sayaka take care of. However, they’re being forced to move out under pressure from his childhood friend Misaki’s father’s company. One day, Misaki’s father’s car crashed into and destroyed the small shrine for some reason. Two cat spirits Hina and Sakuya appear and Sakuya casts a curse, which accidentally hits Misaki, causing her to grow nekomimi and a tail. Now they have to find a way to lift Misaki’s curse, while solving the shrine’s eviction problems at the same time.
There is an English review

 

14. Petapeta ぺたぺた [100430] Lime
6b97973a961c48e24fb5e45e06e0b4ae4789038e97a323d62f7852e6c6da12e9.jpg
Tooru is the grandson of the president of the world-famous Sakurai group. His sister Miki was named as the successor to the group, so people don’t really care much about him. However, Miki made him pretend to be her when helping out the company. This spring, Tooru will be attending Zuikou Academy. Will he be able to protect this secret under in a new setting and at the same time, fall in love for the first time?
Royal road school game. All characters and kind, so it becomes boring very soon.

 

15. Shu ni Majiwareba Akaku Naru 主に交われば朱くなる [100430] Gummy Soft
86624155cb2611a3fb414ac57daac10597731412de2d7a568eed7e26d2602d71.png
Hajime is a normal guy who transfers into Elde Gakuen, a school for the wealthy. He soon learns that he needs to enter into a ‘master-servant’ relationship with another student. Surrounded by various different kinds of ojousamas, his school life has become more exciting.
Game starts nice and has worthy everyday part, but due to the concept has to shift to SM, and that's too big of a contrast. Don't think it can work without some fetish affinity.

Nukige, but with English reviews

IMV is MTLed, not localized, so it is essentially untranslated.  It is a great sequel to IMZ and prequel to IM and IM2.  

Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron is an excellent conclusion to the Akagoei trilogy.  

Acchi Muite Koi is considered a classic charage, and it is pretty good, for what it is.
