VN of the Month July 2018 - Haru to Yuki,


Haru to Yuki, basically wins by default here as gameplay and series releases don't qualify. Micchi likes provoking Nukige Mitai na Shima ni Sundeiru Watashi wa Dou Surya Ii Desu ka and fluffy Wanko no Yomeiri as well as a delayed title

 

1. Zanki Zero  ザンキゼロ [180705] Spike Chunsoft 1 2

God created the world in seven days. It only took one day for humans to destroy the world. Life as we knew it sank to the depths of the sea...until yesterday. We do not yet know the broken world and the reasons left behind there. An earth where ruins drift about. Buildings, houses, light posts. Cars, traffic lights, asphalt... Modern civilization was destroyed, becoming nothing more than debris wading in the sea. New ruins drift one after the other before the protagonist, who lives on one of those decaying islands.

The small ryokan Yuki is located deep in the mountains, away from the other hotels and ryokans of the hot spring town in the Tohoku region of Japan. It has a unique system where the guests and staff are free to dress however they want on the ryokan grounds. While it is possible to bring your own clothes, there are some available for rent too. The staff also takes requests from guests on what to wear. However, it is forbidden to be naked outside of the baths, and you can’t touch the staff, as expected.
Wouldn’t you like to stay at an unusual ryokan like this?
Ah, there’s other strange things aside from the cosplays, but don’t mind it. It’s just some dead people that come for a stay, but since they possess physical bodies that can be touched, you won’t be able to tell the difference from living beings anyway. Yuki welcomes any and all guests, so please pay them a visit!

That's as close to moege as possible

Haru to Yuki is an excellent nakige that will have you crying constantly no matter which path you pick.

Shukusei no Girlfriend as a series is pretty enjoyable, despite being split into parts when it should have been one game.

I'm late to comment in regard of June releases, so may as well do it here.

Miagete IF - In case someone want to see threesome sex scenes between Akito (The MC), Hikari, and Saya then they can play this VN. Yeah the main feature is on how Akito did try to keep the friendship between two main heroine of Miagete, and it should be obvious that Pulltop won't localize this because it would be pain to get permission from Steam even if they do usual cut the sex scenes.

Uchikano - Single heroine VN that was just recently released by Mangagamer in that it feature childhood friend heroine who's about to enter university, and obviously there's a lot of romantic moment along with the sex scenes in the VN. Well it should be good in case anyone want some short VN with single heroine and adult MC because the MC here is a working man instead of usual high school student.

Summer Pockets - It's KEY VN with the twists did resemble their previous VN, although instead of Jun Maeda the main writer is Niijima Yuu who as we know usually like to write nakige in his season series VN. Another thing is that the setting is in summer and that our MC here is moved to the island in order to recover from his trauma, and it should be obvious that there's no sex scenes in there/ Oh yes we already have this in English thanks to Visual Arts, although initially Alka did want to release it first though. Oh well, and if anything else at least Alka did work on the upgraded version (Reflection Blue) as of now.

Wanko to Yomeiri - Moege with duo dog girls with the MC want to become patisserie, and it has English translation which to say apparently quite bad. No much that I can say in regard of this other than it should be good if you like dog girls.

Mojikai - The first VN in which Nitroplus like to experiment in that they tried to write a disturbing nukige akin of euphoria or Maggot Baits, although the closest one here would be Fraternite with high school setting and all. As for whether Nitroplus's experiment is successful or not, well it seems that the answer is quite vary to a degree. If anything else, for now I can say that I prefer JAST to license Tokyo Necro instead of this, but if they somehow get this then at least it should be a good news to anyone else who've been interested with this.

Nukitashi - A very lighthearted nukige that was licensed by Sol Press and it's about to be ready to be released. Or not because Sol Press has been in slump and the work to release this was apparently halted thanks to the lack of the engine so much that they need to rebuilding the file for QA, and Nukitashi here is anything but nukige in that it's more or less a story on how a male MC want to stay virgin even after he was transferred into the school that forced the students to have sex. Our MC obviously want to run away, and thus there'll be some epic battle which involved the usage of weapons ranging from rifle to sex toy (Yes there'll be sex toy that used as the weapons).

That's all for my comment in regard of both June and July 2018 releases.
