Nekonin is pure nukige.

Shugaten is a pure kusoge.

Suisei Ginka was the last Akatsuki Works game to come out.  I am sad.  Give me more Akatsuki Works.

Nekonin- Well Sekai didn't have much money to license more interesting VNs from Whirlpool, so Sekai decided to localized Nekonin because it's one of smaller title from Whirlpool that they made to respond Nekopara's trend. At least the heroines design of Nekonin is good if anything else.

Ritarnia - Gameplay RPG VN featuring a featureless MC who actually a spirit summoner and he managed to summon five female spirits that going to fight together in order to repel the demon invasion and possibly defeated the demons. Well it's one of Mangagamer's release and it's quite underrated when compared to the other gameplay VN title such as Rance or Eushully's VNs.

Ouka Sabaki - Phoenix Wright with sex scenes and cute heroines. That's the gist of it, or if you want more detail the MC here is the judge in Edo era and he'll investigating the cases before held a trial in order to resolve the cases. The trial obviously will involving what Phoenix Wright did, cross-examining the witnesses and find out whether the initial culprit is in the wrong or not based from the witness testimonies and the evidences from the investigation before deliver the verdict. Shiravune did localize this, and it's their very first release (Not counting messy Your Diary release, in that DMM themselves who do that before they decided to form Shiravune).

That's all for my comment in regard of February 2017 releases.
