VN of the Month January 2018 - Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni


Clephas chose Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni and I also embrace this opinion for now till I play Sora no Baroque myself. Shogun-sama wa Otoshigoro is another masterpiece. Micchi is enthralled by Soi Kano ~Gyutto Dakishimete~ and a loli nukige

 

1. Aikagi ~After Days~ アイカギ ~アフターデイズ~ [180126] Azarashi Soft

Nozomu and his childhood friend Shiori became lovers after the Christmas confession. They had been attending the same university since the following spring, and then their first summer as a couple arrived. Despite being childhood friends, they had not spent their summer vacations together for a while. Nozomu proposed that they make plans to fully enjoy this summer to make up for all their past years apart, and Shiori readily went along with it.
A two-month long summer vacation. The first summer for just the two of them. Dressed in light clothes and swimsuits, he saw another side of her that was different from winter, and his heart began to race once more.
“This summer feels like it’ll be a fun one…!”
Aikagi sequel that no one apparently needed

 

2. Mikagami Sumika no Seifuku Katsudou  見鏡澄香の制服活動 [180126] Prekano

The protagonist met a girl in a school uniform at Japan’s famed theme park Delight Resort. While it was their first meeting, they hit it off right away, but they didn’t exchange contacts before leaving their separate ways.
Some days later, he discovered after moving into a new home that his neighbor was the girl from that day. Even though she was happy to meet him once again, she froze upon hearing her friend say:
“Hey… He thinks you’re a high school student, doesn’t he?”
Sumika had already graduated from high school and was in the third year at university. On one hand, she was looking for a job, but on the other, she was wearing a school uniform that was not befitting her age. It was a revival to remember ‘that time’: a second school life.
Prekano stamps these nukige-ish single heroines stories almost every other month, so no one should get surprised about product quality.

Nobuyuki is a normal student who was involved in a traffic accident. After regaining his consciousness, he found himself in the Edo period!
Yoshimune, a beautiful swordswoman whose hobby is vanquishing evil.
Muneharu, the flashy daughter of one of the three great families.
Tamaki, his imouto who also time-slipped to the Edo period.
Rin, a shy kunoichi who lives next door to him.
Along with these four beautiful girls, he acquired possession of the cheat sword “Reitou Retsuzan”, which has a mind of its own, to become the greatest swordsman of Edo. It wouldn’t be long before the battle for the mysterious ‘hidden treasure’ would lead to a major event that would shake the Shogunate.

4. Shoujo to Toshi no Sa, Futamawari.  少女と年の差、ふたまわり。 [180126] Akabei Soft3 1 2

Masami is an officer worker who has lived an uneventful life. His parents passed away, he was hospitalized for a while, then he changed jobs because of it. Various things happened, but apart from those, he lived in the moment. Then he realized that he was at the age where others were calling him oji-san. Yet he didn’t have friends nor a girlfriend, kept his distance from his colleagues at work, and lived by himself.
However, he did have a cousin Rin who often called him and he enjoyed talking with her. She worked as a hostess at night, so she leaves her teenage daughter Mizuka alone at home every night. She asked him to take care of Mizuka whenever he had time. So, he called her and asked if she would like to have dinner together.
A lonely man and a lonely girl. Due to this trivial offer, their time alone gradually became one for both of them.

5. Soi Kano ~Gyutto Dakishimete~  添いカノ~ぎゅっと抱きしめて~ [180126] Giga 1

Kouhei has lately been seeing dreams where he is falling, and it made him chronically sleep-deprived. So, he would take a walk every day around the school grounds for a comfortable place to take a nap during lunch break.
One day, he visited the rooftop greenhouse for the first time and took a nap there. When he woke up, there was a girl who he didn’t know sleeping next to him.
“Wah!? Why!?”
“Nn… This, is my, reserved spot…”
Yoake was a problem child at the school. Why is it that she never shows up in class even though she comes to the school? He begins to know her secret after napping together with her every day.
Epitome of moege

There are two races who have co-existed in this world for hundreds of years: the ‘mahoroi’ who have animal ears, wings and tails, and the humans who don’t. The maple-adorned town of Tsugumomi, located at the base of a mountain, is said to be the origin of the mahoroi. This is where Seiji encountered a mahoroi girl in a scene much like those in countless stories from the past.
“… I finally met you…!”
She looked at him with misty eyes and flushed cheeks, parted her lips and did her best to convey her hidden feelings.
“Um, um. My… no, I…”
Yes, this is the beginning of a traditional love story…
“I… am master’s pet♪”
NOT!! Rather than a love confession, she proclaimed to be his pet! The relations between the mahoroi and humans were shaken by this girl Momiji’s appearance, but above all, Seiji’s surroundings changed drastically after the self-proclaimed pet’s intrusion. It’s a new page in the storied history between the two races. What will happen from now on?

BLOCKED
 
1. Trinoline: Genesis  トリノライン:ジェネシス [180126] minori
Fandisc for Trinoline. Contains stories for all the characters (including sub-characters Hanako and Ayaka). Soreyori no Prologue character poll winner Himeno Touwa's mini story is also included.
Fandisc
 
2. Real Eroge Situation! Hx3 リアルエロゲシチュエーション!H×3 [180126] Jitaku Studio
This is the fandisc for Real Eroge Situation. Shinobu was confessed to by Ayame, Kanna and Yuri, then was subject to their non-stop sexual advances. He had planned to choose one of them before the school festival, but he was ultimately unable to do so.
“Ehehe, it’s been a while, onii-chan♪”
One day, his childhood friend Ui returned after moving away when they were still kids. Her parents were originally supposed to accompany her, but they had urgent matters to attend to. Nazuna suggested that Ui stay at Shinobu’s home in the meantime.
“I’m being serious. I’ve always always loved you, onii-chan.
So… have sex with me♪
She was extremely direct with her feelings for him which had built up over the years they’ve been apart. This was the trigger for the other girls to make even more extreme sexual advances towards him! Surrounded by four girls who are infatuated with him, this is truly a harem situation!

Shogun-sama combines Alcot's 'Magical artifact' universe (Onigokko) with time travel in this game, and the result is generally amusing and enjoyable.

Shoujo to Toshi no sa is actually a sweet little semi-incest romance between two people of greatly separated ages.  Despite what you might think, there are no elements of the protagonist taking advantage of the girl, and it is more of a 'growing closer due to loneliness' sort of situation.

Sora no Baroque is the game that shouldn't have existed... or rather, existed as it is.  This game is more in Clock Up's style than that of Light, with an excessive amount of guro and even some nasty rape scenes.  Moreover, the best combat scene in the entire game... doesn't involve the protagonist and friends at all, lol.

Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni is an LoS game based in a world very similar to the Tayutama setting (given the Tayutama time scale, it is possible that this is the same world, centuries apart).  It is a high-quality charage with some nakige qualities.

Shogun-sama - Seeing that recently JAST localized Onigokko and that this VN has connection with it, perhaps we may hope that JAST will localize this somehow (Although Nekonyan is fine as well if Alcot somehow decided to ask Nekonyan to localize this).

Sora no Baroque - I only know that it's score is quite low for Light VN, and if mod Clephas did say about on how it copied Clockup style then I can say that it's quite ironic because we have Maggot Bait in which it's Clockup VN that was written by Light writer and here we are have Light tried to write it like Clockup.

Trinoline Genesis - It's the first fandisc that minori released ever since ef fandisc, although ironically this became their Swan Song. Mangagamer did localize this, and we may have this released sometime at this year later.

Imopara 3 - Usual little sister nukige from Moonstone, although at least this time they finally manage to have cute design for two youngest sisters (The rest of the sisters still has shadow from previous Imopara design wise). Mangagamer did localized this and already have it released together with the hard copy as well, so you can read this in English.

That's all for my comments in regard of January 2018 releases.
