Rikka’s dream is to become a servant for his sickly cousin Hai. This spring she joined him at Rinka Gakuen, a school for the upper class, but she caused trouble shortly upon arrival and was confined to a special correctional dormitory known as ‘the prison’. He refused to believe that the pretty and refined Hai would do such a thing, so he dressed as a maid to infiltrate the dormitory as Yuki with the help of the student council president Yukia.
However, when he met her again inside, he discovered that she was actually a carefree tomboy… exactly the opposite of what he thought she was! Moreover, everyone else there had a completely different side! Hai had an absurd request for him: she wanted him to help set her up with… himself. His dual life with doubled-faced girls has begun!

The former girls’ school Kokoronomori Gakuen recently became co-ed, but girls still greatly outnumber boys. Kazuki is the son of the school’s chairman and serves as the student council president. However, only he knows that his father had disappeared after incurring grave debts and that he is also acting as the chairman. His childhood friend and vice-president of the student council Sara and former student council leader Nanoka began to suspect something was amiss.
At that time, a group of exchange students arrived from overseas. It was another one of his childhood friends, the princess Alize, and her attendant Majoroline. The students’ excitement seeing these mysterious foreigners was palpable, and it became even more chaotic when Alize suddenly kissed him in front of the whole school.
“I’ve always dreamed of the day when I would be able to meet you once more”
Majoroline explained that the school had been formally acquired by the Kingdom of Stanhal to serve as a cross-cultural bridge between the two nations. He was greeted by them when he returned home, and had no option but to live with them since he was saddled with debt. His co-habitation life with the deeply-in-love Alize begins.

Satoru was a delinquent who one day decided to change for the better and aimed to do one good deed each day. He returned to his hometown to live by himself and saved the landlord’s daughter Mikoto from some thugs, helped the lone gardening club member Minato with tending the fields, and did part-time with Yuu at the military shop since they were short on staff.
However, his meeting with the student council president Ruri was somewhat different. The next day, he saw her once more and thought that she had come to thank him, but when he chased after her, he soon found himself waist-high in a pit. She took a picture of him in his pathetic state and left without helping him out.
“Does she have a grudge against me because of something I did in the past?”

Akito came to Mahoshi Gakuen as a transfer student and got lost as he walked around the unfamiliar vast campus. A girl with gentle eyes, Yuki, called out to him. She showed him around the school, ending at a flower garden where the flowers were still budding.
“Let’s meet here again when the flowers bloom”
Low-price single heroine work. Supposedly good, but I just don't play games without distinctive story for romance.

Raspberry Cube - Good that Madosoft did realize that Wagahigh heroines breasts size are quite ridiculous and thus they toned down the breast design in that they even had two heroines have small breast. Obviously we can expect this as charage like Wagahigh, and it's a shame that we didn't have Sekai localize this because they chose to localize Feng VNs (Not that there's anything wrong with that, although it would be good to see more Madosoft VN in English).

NG - Another non-otome VN that was localized by Aksys, and no much to say that it should be good for horror VN fans.

Kemomusu - I did play and finished this, and I can say that this is good short VN to a degree. In case you want to play this, obviously you should play this for the sake of cute girls instead of expecting some fighting like Muramasa or Dies Irae. Oh yes in here we have the MC who live in the countryside met a mysterious wolf girl, and from there the MC take care of the wolf girl and possibly form some bonds with her. Oh yes it should be obvious that we already have this translated in English thanks to Sekai back at 2019.

That's all for my comment in regard of September 2018 releases.
