12.jpg
The world we live in is overflowing with mysteries: people ride on brooms, cast magic, and fight against beings that appeared to have come straight out of a fairy tale. The world had once fallen in a crisis, but that is now all in the past. Even though these fairytale-like creatures ‘Kurayami’ still battle with magicians in the skies, there is a on-going search for a way to co-exist together.
In the renowned magic city of Akatoki lies the world’s best magician training academy. Akatoki is designed to be a model city for co-habitation between the two races and is also home to the group of magicians who had previously saved the world. A generation later, as a new team of magicians was to be assembled, there was the beginnings of a new being…

“Dolphin blade” is a marine race sport featuring girls in swimsuits on motorized float shoes. It is especially popular in Yamato, the 81st island district of the United Federation.
Kousuke is an employee at the leading Aihara Electronics Corporation. His business performance was excellent thanks to sweet-talking his boss and he appeared to be on the track to certain success. However, his boss was then dismissed for an ‘indecent act’ and he also came under suspicion of similar conduct. Despite being spared a similar fate due to lack of evidence, he was involuntarily transferred to a sub-subsidiary as the new manager of a dolphin blade team.
Even though the team had some skilled members, they were unable to attain any good results every year, accruing a huge debt in the process. He would not be able to return to Aihara if the debt is not fully paid off. It was clear that the upper management intended to get rid of him, but he was determined to do his best to prove them wrong.

7. Hoshi Furu Yoru no Farnese 星降る夜のファルネーゼ [170929] Miti 1 2
6f107b6f8bc576756cb3706e391af3b6fb8350b17a6ae84470be7e5d7d7d0747.png
There once was a ‘good witch’ who used magic to bring prosperity to the world. The people were grateful to her and enjoyed her benevolence. However, a ‘bad witch’ appeared and incited the humans to kill her virtuous counterpart. With the powerful and wise ‘good witch’ no longer around, the ‘bad witch’ was free to do as she pleased.
The people suffered as she brought on fires and floods, destroying and corrupting everything she touched. They managed to kill her too and vowed to forget about magic, but she had cast a curse upon the world: witches will continue to exist in the world. Thus began a hunt for the ‘witches’ with the intent on exterminating them all. This is the beginning of the ‘star hunt’, which has continued for hundreds of years.
Etoile stood in the middle of a church in the capital, nervously awaiting the opening of a ‘star hunt’ trial. He was a new ‘astrologer’, an equivalent to a lawyer, tasked with defending a client for the first time. He was barely able to prove her innocence, although he hadn’t been able to find the true culprit.
Afterwards, a witch with a dog familiar suddenly appeared in front of him. She called herself the ‘Witch of Justice’ and offered to assist him. It is up to them to take back the ‘starry sky’!
The premise of the game is to regain the ‘starry sky’ which was lost because of the bad witch. You have to collect evidence to prove the innocence of your clients during the witch hunt. Along the way, you’ll find who the culprits (bad witches) are and defeat them to gradually regain the ‘constellations’. As you complete more cases, you’ll begin to see a link between the cases .
The evidence can found by searching places of interest, while the actual ‘star hunt’ involves stripping them by countering their lies and revealing the witch’s seal (constellation) on their bodies. To draw out the seal from their bodies, you must bring them to ‘ecstasy’.

After working continuously in a shady business, his body and soul are in shambles. As he was walking without an umbrella in the rain, a woman called out to him:
“Have you been comforted lately?”
Arriving at the address on the business card he had received, he was enlisted as a ‘massage model’ (also known as a marmot) at the comfort industry specialty school, Shichijou Salon Arts Academy. His body, soul and nether regions, are comforted by the whispers of the goddesses at the school. Will he be able to safely regain his healthy body!?
SOL scenes are terribly boring, otherwise more or less normal moege

6839d24c7d3507f17fe4a44fa1d39e2a4236ce9e5e2fb061ec87edf115bb7212.png
All Japanese people know the rules of e-sugoroku: roll the dice, move your piece, aim for the finish. However, for Akira and those around him who have also lost their memories, they have become the ‘pieces’ in a world that mimics this game. They have to compete with each other to be the first and only one to reach the finish line and escape the world.
With each roll of the die, they proceed around the streets of Kyoto basked in the fall colours. While following the commandments on the ’tiles’ they land on, they have to avoid the hidden dangers of the ‘board’. Along the way, the memories of ‘reality’ gradually return. Why is there two worlds: ‘sugoroku’ and ‘reality’? Why are they here?

Haruta calls himself an ordinary student, but he still had not gotten over his first love, who was actually his imouto who he never knew he had. A new school year had arrived and everyone at his school, Souto Gakuen, was talking about the rumoured merger with Houjou Gakuen. The school’s founder and chairman had passed away suddenly last year and the school lost its direction and was in a bad financial state. However, a merger with Houjou Gakuen, a grades-centric school that uses corporal punishment on its students, would signal the loss of freedom and self-governance that Souto Gakuen was built on.
It seemed that there was no way to avoid the merger when a young girl appeared, claiming to be the new chairman of the school, and passing out leaflets petitioning the merger. Even though he did not believe that this small girl was the new chairman, he was so touched by her actions that he inadvertently accepted a leaflet and ended up joining the merger petition group.

ss_09c920788f4cb4ba44018115a8bfda07868b768d.600x338.jpg
One day close to the beginning of summer vacation, Shuuichi was watching a ‘cursed Blu-ray’ given to him by his buddy when a spirit came out from the disc and possessed him. His childhood friend Murasaki belonged to a family that managed an ancient temple, so she tried an exorcism to rid him of the spirit. While the ritual was successful and quelled the vindictive spirit, the spirit girl’s form remained due to her inexperience. Her name was Chiyako, the name of the girl who was killed on screen, and she revealed that the spirits of six other girls dwelled within her.
According to Murasaki, spirits can only remain in this world for 49 days, which meant that there would only be seven days allotted for each of the seven girls. Shuuichi was tasked with helping them achieve happiness so they can leave this world with no regrets. However, it is a very short time to accomplish this task. Also he did not realize at this time that it meant that he would be getting to know each girl well only to bid a painful farewell seven times over.

Maki used to be lovers with his childhood friend Saeko and they would imitate what adults would do. However, one time they had sex and she ran away from the town because of it. Immediately he was blamed for the incident and labelled as a ‘monster’. Many years later and now in his second year at school, those rumours have still persisted.
On the day of the final exam for the term in early July, he protected his cousin Yuki from some harassment from some boys and his past label resurfaced. However, this time he gave up trying to deny it and acted like he enjoyed it. Saeko suddenly returned to the town and he also ended up having multiple relationships with many girls by chance. Addicted to the new sensations and pleasure, he seeked many forms of erotic play to express his pent-up anger. At the same time, he was able to see the girls’ true feelings and personality.
Is this pure love or twisted love?

Yuganda Uso is a seriously weird game.  While it is heavy on the sex, it also has a strong plot element, so I hesitate to call it a nukige.  The big thing about this game is how twisted the characters - in particular the protagonist - are.

Haze Man... think weird Power Rangers type superhero protagonist without the overdone villains to make him look cool, lol.  It's a decently fun game, but it isn't really worth writing home about.

Omokage Railback is a decent game that could have been great if they hadn't made the protagonist into a non-entity.

Sakura Hitohira Koi Moyou is yet another trashy charage that isn't really worth paying any attention to.

Oni ga Kuru is the spiritual successor to the 13cm Oni Uta, though it only shares an artist.  It has the same concepts, the same type of characters, and a nearly identical atmosphere.  If you like semi-tragic incest stories with clingy sisters who don't understand common sense and oni heroines who equally don't understand it, then you'll like this game.

DDLC - One of well known OELVN, thanks to the big twist in the story that involved Monika. While at first the twist is thought as something unique, turned out that there's another VN that also has the same twist (Kimikoi) so that it can be said that DDLC here is inspired by Kimikoi (Although the creator of DDLC (Dan Salvato) did say that he didn't really know Kimkoi when he made DDLC). In any case, I guess one may play it if you curious about the twist (Which to be said already well known even among the people who didn't play it yet).

Flowers Hiver - The last part of Flowers tetralogy that was supposed to be resolve all of the plot from previous series. From what I read apparently the ending was quite disappointment to a degree, although I believe some other people may find the ending satisfying. That said, Flowers Winter here would be still worth it for the art and the soundtrack along with lighthearted GL romance (Note that Flowers here is pretty much lighter compared to Kara no Shoujo despite from the same company). Oh yes JAST did already worked on this, although as of now they didn't announce it explicitly (They only say this when they answering one of the tweet) and from the usual pattern we'll going to have this translated at 2022 later.

Seven Days - A nakige with the MC encounter a female ghost that was possessed by six other ghosts, and thus the MC job is to calmed down each ghosts in order for them to move on within seven days which obviously will took 49 days to calmed down all of the ghosts (49 days here is also the time limit that the ghosts can stay in the human world). This VN was created through the crowdfunding, and the late Conjuereor was the one who translate this. We also have this translated thanks to Fruitbat Factory, and for the info since Fruitbat is the one who handle the localization it should be obvious that there's no sex scenes here (Fruitbat only handle all age VN for the info).

Space Live - Technically this is OELVN that was created by Circus here, and the premise is we have female personification of web browsers (With the big breast) compete in the the game show that supposed to be determined the number of the supports between the web browsers. Well what I can say is that at least we should praise Circus can make their answer to Sakura series, and just enjoy the visual that the game provided (No sex scenes though, and at least Circus didn't add the sex scenes for the Japanese release only like Pulltop).

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