Evolimit is the only real masterpiece here. I'll review it eventually, but with Dailymotion limit of two hours per day it would take over a month of real time, so it's the only thing I review in 2010. Micchi falls for nekomimi You∞Gaku just because of cuteness.

 

1. Nadeshiko Ranbu 撫子乱舞 [100521] White Cyc
b0330814bc2cbd6a786c6d3dfbb76956c3125f00c12ab22b94143317a40ae6f6.png
Focuses on the Yamato Nadeshiko archetype – the ideal Japanese woman, Takahiro resides in Misaki-shi where there is a competition to determine who most depicts the Yamato Nadeshiko. In the past, there was a woman who protected the country during the period of war. The one who excelled in fighting was called the Nadeshiko Ranbu, while the one who excelled in the arts was called the Nadeshiko Ranka. He has to decide which out of the six girls he will support in the competition.
Heroines are skilled in fighting from beginning. We pick one and watch the outcome. Short, low quality, weird.

 

2. Fight Ippatsu! Juden-Chan!! CC ファイト一発!充電ちゃん!!CC [100527] Russell

3. Okiba ga Nai! 置き場がない! [100527] Akabei Soft2 1 2 
f62cd1f2a378b5ef90719787dcf4e407ecb6128bb361ad2162d6ad15fcee7421.jpg
On his way back to his home planet after completing his mission, the steel giant Yarusenaizer collides with a meteorite and crashes down to Earth. Being badly damaged by the crash, Yarusenaizer can't go back to his home planet until his repairs are fixed. Taking pity on him, the protagonist, Amanogawa Seiji, takes him to live with him.
Like that, the story opens!
But in the small Japan, it's not easy for a giant robot; many problems face him!
There is an English review. I actually played it, and it was too weird, did not like it.

One day Serika comes in with big news: there’s a miko coming to the island!
There are English reviews.

 

7. Evolimit エヴォリミット [100528] Propeller 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
bb0abcad087eb965560b50c5f6bad34df599aa63b21bbbecd8ed8901c52a669b.jpg
You start out in a flashback, the last remaining two humans fighting against him. Of course, after that you wake up in a place unknown to you along with a bishoujo and you lost all your memories.
The girl with you explains that this is no longer a world you once lived in, a world where trains, bus and bicycles no longer exists. People travel by flight, literally. Not only that, but people transforming into colossus form, reading invisible books, and opening doors that cut through space continuum. Yep, welcome to Planet Mars.
There are English reviews.

 

8. Famima! ファミ魔! [100528] Puzzlebox
2af8584c5d21d68789b86ce6894571242eaa05f6ef58f74f4dfe7b9bc5401e0e.jpg
Yuuji had been living by himself for a month. Just when he was starting to feel lonely, a girl comes to his house and tells him that she’s his imouto from a past life! The other girls accompanying her explain that he used to be a maou, and they all decide to live in his house.
Puzzlebox always made borderline nukige. There's even no opening this time. Writer at least tried to have fun and just throw in humor everywhere, but it's still a H focused B-class work about so convenient sudden co-habitation.

 

9. Gratin ぐらタン [100528] Cotton Soft
e4355e03e4959b18339343b74e9b5f0be5cc8c66e7ff309882bb82e6ca01ecb8.jpg
Haruki used to live with his mother, but now moves in with his relatives: 4 sisters born from 4 different mothers, but the same father. Their father was a traveling magician who used magic on them before disappearing. There is only one way to remove the magic: all 5 of them must build a close family bond to each other. However, can Haruki resist temptation being with such cute girls and view them as just family?
Setting is too aggressive even compared to tons of other moege. It's a harem from the start and we move towards individual relations all the time. Basically, another reincarnation of Natsumegu type of Cotton Soft works.

 

10. Hapi☆Sama! ~Miyanomori Mura e Youkoso!~ はぴ☆さま!~宮乃森村へようこそ!~ [100528] Sugar Pot
793c141e2adcf26fd169ada74328f379c1bb6f025a065e17a548df87883cb2f8.webp
Yuuta lived with his father in the city after his mother’s death when he was young. One day, his father suddenly left for work overseas and Yuuta ended up getting evicted from his apartment and moved to his mother’s hometown, Miyanomori-mura. Living in the countryside with his grandparents for the first time, he is surrounded by girls who are interested in hearing about how it’s like in the city. He’s exhausted from this scenery change, but more unexpected things happen to him when he accidentally broke and awakened the goddess who was asleep. He ended up being possessed by the goddess of wealth and fertility (in chibi form)! However, she has to absorb his luck making him unlucky.
So many irritating elements for me. It's just a warm summer moege.

 

11. Hime to Majin to Koi Suru Tamashii ヒメと魔神と恋するたましぃ [100528] Orange Pekoe
23857.jpg
During the Heian Era, the queen of the demon world sent her two daughters Kaguya and Sakuya to the human world for training, with the one with better results becoming the successor to the throne. Kaguya used her power to make humans suffer, while Sakuya blended in with the humans to control them from within. However, Sakuya fell in love with an onmyouji and thought that living in the human world isn’t that bad. She then received a request: to eliminate her older sister Kaguya. With the help of her lover, she successfully sealed Kaguya and brought peace to the land. However, her lover soon passed away due to illness and she returned to the demon world. Thousands of years later, Sakuya will be crowned the new queen, but she must marry some one. There is only one person in her heart, so she heads back to the human world to seek the her reborn lover.
Card battles is all that I need to know about this game to safely ignore it.

 

12. Little Rabbits -Wagamama Twin Tail- りとるらびっつ -わがままツインテール- [100528] Whitesoft
f1223d62087a0de5ef1f09efb7361773906f2b7b6ad34a1c996e194682fe3d36.jpg
Miyako loves her onii-chan Ryoutarou a lot, more than just as siblings, and makes daily advances on him. Somehow he’s been able to withstand her temptations, but now his older sister Azusa is coming back for the summer vacation and she loves him just as much. He decides that he can’t keep going on like this and decides to get a girlfriend – his kind classmate Rina. However, this only makes things worse as his sisters team up with his osananajimi Sayo to gain his attention. Even though he has a girlfriend, it doesn’t matter... They will keep loving him!
Another harem battle. Only for siscon lovers.

 

13. Meguri Megureba Meguru Toki!? 廻り巡ればめぐるときっ!? [100528] Caramel Box Ichigo-aji 1 
2796d07bcf3a065536fd9bf3dfc671c50217d2f932f1f77d5e87a521bc3cc3d0.webp
Other than not being interested in any girls under 80cm bust size, Masayuki is pretty much your standard oppai-loving student. However, due to a traffic accident, he gained the ability to use astral projection (the mind leaving the body) and now can see the spiritual world which is full of ghosts and youkai. One day while he’s enjoying this world, his body was possessed by someone else! When he returns to his body, he receives criticism all around and has been branded as a pervert. What happened when he was gone!?

His childhood friend Wako who also has feelings for him hears about this, declares herself a candidate as well and moves in with them.
Doujin level work about nothing since it's another H focused sudden cohabitation.

Ryou has played lots of eroge and loved lots of (2D) imoutos. However, one imouto has stolen his heart. Voiced by his favourite seiyuu and drawn by his favourite illustrator, Mai is not like his real imouto, Shiori, who treats him like garbage and sees him as nothing more than a disgusting eroge-playing maniac. No, Mai would take a bath with him, hold hands with him on the way to school... it’s totally different from reality. One night, Ryou had a strange dream. When he woke up in the morning, he found Mai straddling him... “Good morning, onii-chan!”

No much to comment, but still let's see what I can comment in regard of May 2010 here.

So Ra No Wo To - I only know that it originally from the anime in which it's the original work instead of adapt it from another source, and I did call this as 'K-On on Military' because we'll have five girls in military who play the music after the war between countries destroy their surrounding. Well at least the anime itself is quite well received, and you can just watch the anime if you want to know the main story.

Evolimit - One of the three very well known Propeller chuunige that are written by Higashide Yuuichiro alongside Ayakashibito and Bullet Butler, and out of those three only Ayakashibito was translated back at 2014. No much to say other than mod Clephas like it very much (Otherwise he won't make more than one blogpost in regard of this), it's obviously will have a number of fight scenes, and that you better try to ask Mangagamer if one want to see this translated (Although looks like it's quite hard to do as of now). Oh and once again like Tokyo Babel the setting is unusual, in which it's at Mars that was just developed.

Real Imouto - Looks like Oreimo with his blood related little sister has fragile ego, although in here the MC will got little sister who come from his favorite heroine at his little sister eroge. Looking from the writer, as expected from his Shinikiss writing (Both Real Imouto and Shinikiss were written by same writer (Orgel)) the ending itself is quite bittersweet to a degree (Or at least that's what the reviews state), although in the end it's still a VN about little sister though.

That's all for my comment in regard of May 2010.
