VN of the Month October 2013 - Getsuei Gakuen -kou-


What a small number of new releases. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- is the only game that catches the eye for me, though including it might be not fair as its Windows version came only couple years later. Clephas chose fandisc of Walkure Romanze. Micchi likes Cocoro@Function and Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade

 

1. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- 月英学園 -kou- [131010] Arc System Works 1 2 3

The game revolves around the protagonist, Kou, who has just barely been transferred to Getsuei Gakuen High School, and right on his first night after the transfer, he encountered the mysterious hostile creatures that prowl the night --- the "Hazards". He survived the ordeal, after being saved by a fellow student girl of the same High School, but just as he assumed he was safe, the girl turned around and killed him... or so he thought.
The very next moment, he woke up on his bed, all safe and unharmed. Puzzled by the previous night's encounter, he set off for school, only to realize that "today" is the "first" day of his transfer... again.

The ‘ningyo matsuri’ (mermaid festival) is held every year in the village of Suminoe-chou, which faces the Pacific Ocean. Takumi helps out with his family’s popular cafe Mermaid with his osananajimi Mizuka and his mother Isana.
On the night of the festival, Takumi came upon a girl with a beautiful voice. She was surprised at the unexpected visitor and accidentally slipped into the sea. He saved her and since he couldn’t let her be in her drenched state, he invited the mysterious girl Shione to his house. When Isana decided that Shione would stay in their house and Matsuri, who he had met at the festival, transferred into his school, his days gradually began to change.

Halfway through the 21st century, we are surely approaching something called the “network golden age”. The Multi-purpose communication card “Orca” provides a phone network (that goes without saying), an overwhelming number of apps to use allowing one to shop from their home telephone, and even a way to receive school lessons.
Even IDs and the health insurance cards are all incorporated into the Orca card. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that one’s entire life is influenced by this one small card.
I, Hayami Taiyou, lives in a city that supports cutting-edge Orca cards, also a student of Makoto Advanced Academy (something like this city has the best ones).
Blessed with friends, and although i have no large problems occur in my daily life…… A bug occurred in some students’ Orca card after a sudden automatic update was applied. An unusual app called “Cocoro Function” was installed. And it seems I was one of them, and apparently due to this app, my inner thoughts are revealed to the people around me.
“Chairman! Bad News!”
“What’s wrong? (But, I would never get tired of groping your bouncing boobs)”
“Chairman! You pervert!”
You can’t delete the app, but on the other hand you couldn’t live without Orca either. After that, it was impossible to hide my erotic delusions. Furthermore, apparently there are other apps at school that have special features that are also causing problems. The troubles in school are gradually building up.
I had to do something, and with that in mind, I gathered a group of people also bothered by this mysterious app, and started up the Cocoro Function Countermeasure Committee (CFC), in order to try to solve the problem.
Can everyone else and I retain our peaceful school life!?!

After six years, Tooru returned with his younger sister Natsuha to the remote village of Monobeno deep in the mountains of Kochi prefecture. They reunited with the Akashaguma (child-like Yamori Youkai) Sumi, the Kasayou Hishakaku and his childhood friend and self-proclaimed fiancée Alice. They played in the mountains, visited the shrine, and were visited by the Ushi Oni Tooko just like in the past.
Just as they were getting used to living in Monobeno, it was time for the Shichi Seisai summer festival dedicated to the local deity Himemiya-sama. The festival was lively, concluding with the masked dance. While watching the dancing, Natsuha suddenly started shaking, complaining that her body felt cold. Tooru quickly took her to Naotake — the doctor and Alice's father, but nothing seemed to be wrong with her. They went to play in the nearby stream the next day. Hearing the waterfall caused Natsuha to panic and runoff in fear, but once again, they couldn't find a reason for her peculiar actions. That night, she appeared in front of them very much an adult, and she bled in her nether regions for the first time. Unable to figure out what caused these inexplicable changes, they could only calm her down and watch over her. Another shock awaited them in the morning when they found Natsuha had returned to her normal size, but without any memories of the day before.
They decided to head back to the city for a proper examination. Unfortunately, there was a major landslide that blocked off the only world into the village. Natsuha wished to leave badly, saying that something scary is coming for her. What was causing Natsuha's changes? Was it a disease or a curse? Tooru was determined to find the cause and a way to save Natsuha.

It’s been two years since the mysterious disease “princess syndrome” had been made public. It affects young girls during puberty and the split personality-like symptoms range from mild to serious. In serious cases, she could become like a totally different person due to her wavering feelings and gain a special ability called ‘märchen’ which could cause great problems to those around her. To combat this problematic illness, all carriers (called ‘princesses’) were gathered at Saint Andersen Private School on the secluded island of Yumegashima. One day, a boy Yuuji came to the school. He was the ‘fake prince’ who could put a stop to their rampaging.

Yōto Yokodera is a second-year high school student who is arguably the biggest pervert at school. His problem is that he is not good at showing his real emotions. One day, his equally perverted best friend completely transforms and gets rid of his "impure thoughts"; a feat he attributes to the power of the statue of the "Stony Cat". As the rumors suggest, by wishing upon the statue and giving it an offering, one can wish to remove a personality trait from themselves that one does not wish to have anymore. However, this will remove the unwanted trait and give it to someone who does need it.
As Yōto is making his offering to the statue, a girl named Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi arrives to make her wish to be able to be more like an adult and not show her emotions so easily. Both of them wish upon the stony cat and to their surprise the next day at school, Yōto is unable to tell a single lie, and Tsukiko is unable to show any sign of emotion whatsoever. After realizing that they do not like the change that happened, they work together to try and find out who has received their trait that was taken away in order to get it back. They meet Azusa Azuki, an attractive second-year girl who has just transferred into their school. She is always being confessed to by many boys in school, but she has no friends and is always alone. Yōto finds out that Azusa is the one that received his unwanted personality trait and tries to get it back. As the two try to get back the unwanted trait, they develop feelings for each other.

8Tears to Tiara II: Haou no Matsuei Tears to Tiara II 覇王の末裔 [131031] Aquaplus 1 2 3
102646.jpg
Hamilcal, nicknamed Hamil, is the successor of the Hispania’s throne, but his country was conquered by the ever growing Holy Empire. He and his people are treated as slaves and Hamil has to pretend to be a fool (acting almost like a retard) just to discourage his people from doing a counter attack that would surely fail.
On a fateful night, he meets a strange girl who claims to be the main goddess of his religion, the Goddess of War, Ashtart (Tart). She treated Hamil’s wounds and sang a lullaby to help him sleep. This was certainly the happiest day of Hamil's life, but everything crumbled when messages from the empire interrupted their sacred festival to officially announce the slavery of the Hispania’s people, and as a symbolic act, they decided to sacrifice Tart for heresy against their supreme god Watos.
This made Hamil go into a rampage, summoning the forces of the God of Conquest, Melqart and releasing all the magic he had been building up for 7 years to assassinate a whole army by himself. However, Hamil failed to notice that Tart was set on fire by one of the empire’s guards, and he desperately jumped into the flames to rescue her. Deeply moved by Hamil’s bravery, every Hispanian in the festival started to root for him and their savior goddess, their restored faith revitalizing Tart’s power, saving her from the flames. Rejoining with Hamil while still inside the flames, they performed the sacred ritual of marriage between a goddess and a mortal to use the power from their magical resonance to summon an army of giant elephants and machines from the Heavens and, with it, they smashed many other Imperial troops. Taking advantage of the situation, Hamil ordered every Hispanian troop to attack. This was how he came to be known as the Conqueror King and how he retrieved his whole country in a single night.

The Walkure Romanze FD adds on two extra (and high quality) paths for girls that were highly popular in the original.  It is thus  more of a true extension than just an H-append disc.

Chiisana Kanojo is one of the few games I label as a 'pure moege', because it is nothing but fluff from beginning to end.

Cocoro@Function- A moderately good quality VN that was stunted to an extent by the unwillingness of the writer to go farther with the game's concept.  

I really, really wish they'd offered a non-ero version of Monobeno Happy End... because if you essentially close your eyes, turn off the sound, and skip all ero-related content, it is actually a ridiculously high quality game.  

Usotsuki Ouji is one of a number of mediocre charage that Whirlpool produced during this time period.  It really isn't anything to write home about.
