When Negi decided to attend university in Tokyo this spring, he was coerced by his grandfather to take care of a small shrine while he was there. After finishing the general cleaning, all that was left was the small pond at the back of the shrine grounds. He looked up at the blooming cherry blooms as he swept the small shrine on the banks on the pond and thought that a tranquil life like this wouldn’t be bad either.
“Thank you for making everything clean. My name is Swati.
Are you the priest of this shrine? I look forward to being with you!”
A girl appeared before him, basked in shimmering light and surrounded by cherry blossom petals. It was an unexpected encounter, like she had descended from the sky. It was from that moment that a brand new story begins.
Moege that's much more ugly than predecessors... I'm speechless.

“Hey Mister”
Yuuma was walking to the station one morning, when he heard a voice behind him.
“I’m talking to you, Mister”
When he turned around, there was a small girl wearing black-themed clothes and hood despite the heat of early summer. She asked him if he was bored, and he dismissed her as a fortune teller or promoting some religious group. Then, to his amazement, everything around him froze as if time had stopped. At first he thought it was a prank, but he had no choice but to believe in it when he saw that animals also stopped in their tracks.
“This is called the Atropos watch and it has the power to stop time.
You probably notice that the second hand is still moving.
It can stop time for five minutes; in other words, time will move again after the second hand has made five rotations.”
Yuuma wondered why she was explaining all this to him. She thrust the pocketwatch in his hand and left saying:
“You’re bored, aren’t you? Please use it to spice up your dull life.”

Naoya and his twin sister Konoka had lost their parents at a young age and had a tough childhood. Nevertheless they still managed to find happiness in the little things in life and wished that these warm peaceful days would last forever. However, this faint hope was mercilessly crushed when a Grimoire suddenly appeared before them. It is a forbidden magic book that has existed since the beginning of time, but which should not be in the human realm. They thought that they were an ordinary family, but they were actually the heirs to the “Old One”, which has the power to destabilize the world.

Deatte 5fun is a decent charage with an actual plot, but it has pacing issues and characterization issues that made me put it below the VN of the Month level.

From my understanding, Deep One is an incomplete game, which was the reason I didn't play it.  Until a sequel/second part comes out, I won't be touching this game, though it is sitting in a cardboard box here at home.

Deep One - I only know that I remember some controversy in regard of this, and turned out it's in regard on how the VN is incomplete with no route for the heroines and all with anyone who got it legally got it worse because they must pay the full eroge price (Around 9,000 yen) for basically an episodic VN. Obviously people were mad about this, and thus they'd review bombing both VNDB and Erogamescape. Well I guess this should be good VN in case anyone didn't know the controversy and play it as it is.

Loca Love Volume 1 - Frontwing's attempt to make episodic single heroine VNs, and in here we'll have our MC live together with his underclassman who also his coworker at part-time job because some problem from the MC side. Obviously we'll have a lot of romantic moment between the MC and the underclassman, so you can play this if you like the heroine.

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