Recommended Comments

Witch's Garden- This VN is one I've been meaning to go back and replay.  It is a solid fantasy SOL plotge with a bunch of gimmicks thrown into the system and high production values, even by today's standards.  

Aete Mushi Suru, Kimi to no Mirai- This is, for the most part, a solid charage.  It does, however, get more serious in the heroine paths at times, and it is a high-quality game overall.

Himitsu no Otome- A really weak, low-quality trap protagonist charage.  

Kono Sekai no Mukou- This is a low-budget but high quality nakige.  It is by the makers of Sakura Nikagetsu and has a similar sense of humor, though it is more focused on the emotional aspects from the beginning.

The Koi no Canvas FD's writing is somewhat lower quality than the main game, but the after-stories do add something for people who wanted more of the characters after the game was over.

Novel Game - I don't know that this got translation until I saw this post. That said, I can't comment much on this because it's very unknown but at least it got some interesting concept I guess.

Kokoro Connect - The anime itself is in regard of a group of friend who each of them have some problem, and the VN itself apparently will use self-insert characters in order to allow us to date the girls. That said, the series itself is more infamous with the scandal that can be nicely said as prank goes too far or rather a harsh bullying. Of course such scandal cause a lot of uproar, and thus it's still quite infamous here. It also got a translation project as well, although I didn't pay much attention to it.

Witch's Garden - As per Windmill we can say that this VN is more or less a moege with some unusual setting (With the witches as the tourist attraction), and that it got a project in the past. Although of course the project itself was dead the moment Sol Press announce the license of this VN, and until this day Sol Press was fumbling in regard of searching the staffs to translate this VN so no much progress that we can hope in regard of this, unless Windmill break Sol Press's contract and ask other localization companies like what Laplacian did (ie their nukige with JAST and Mirai Radio with Nekonyan) in order to localize this. Oh well, at least Sol Press show the good progress in the other Windmill VN (Sakura Celebration).

No much to say, so that's all for my comment in regard of November 2012 releases.
