There is an illness spreading through the world called the ‘hero disease’ where using magic will result in early death. People skilled in combat fought with monsters aware of their shortening lifespan. They fought to eliminate as many monsters as possible to protect their families and friends.
In this tragic world appeared a young man, Alex, who was blessed with a legendary healing ability. His body fluids can cure any ailment without physical trauma. He set out to save the girls suffering from the ‘hero disease’.
RPG

 

4. Guildmaster ギルドマスター [190222] Astronauts: Sirius 1
128190.jpg
An adventurer's guild "Amakakeru O-Hitsuji" (天駆ける雄羊) operates from a pub in the outskirts. The Guildmaster cum pub owner Neil and his daughter Lusit run the businesses. This guild is now faced with an existential crisis.
The remote town of Dantor is situated on the foothills; it was formerly a massive mining complex run by the dwarves, but with their disappearance the town is now a hotspot for adventurers looking to get rich quick from what is now an enormous underground labyrinth. Amakakeru O-Hitsuji was but one guild which kept the mass of ambitious adventurers in control, but the retirement of capable adventurers and the rapid rise of the formidable rival guild, "Kokuyou no Tora" (黒曜の虎) has contributed to Hitsuji running at a loss in recent times.
Everything came to a head the previous month when the notice revoking the business license was delivered to the struggling guild. The town of Dantor only permits officially licensed guilds to operate so as things stand Hitsuji is on the verge of collapse. To renew the business license, Hitsuji has to produce tangible results within a few months.
During this time of crisis, the leading guild breadwinner, the skilled warrior Edgar, has his strength drained by a mysterious monster whilst exploring and is severely weakened to the point he cannot continue his trade. For the remaining guild members, this disaster is the last straw precipitating their exodus. Edgar remains as the sole registered adventurer of Hitsuji.
At this juncture Lusit offers Edgar the position of new Guildmaster. Lusit's reasoning considers her father's advanced age and the effect of having Edgar with his fame as a skilled warrior take the reins, which would encourage young adventurers to gather at the pub. Edgar, who still had lingering regrets over his career-ending accident, thought about his present physical condition and his desire to pay back the guild which he had grown fond of and decided to take up Lusit's offer to become the new Guildmaster of Amakakeru O-Hitsuji.
And thus, the ex-adventurer Edgar begins his new life as a Guildmaster.

Let my feelings be conveyed!
The year of the sakura--The one year out of every ten where the cherry blossoms bloom unusually long, in which the annual festivals are celebrated with much grandeur.
With the return of the year of the sakura, various feelings begin to bloom as if they'd been waiting impatiently.
"Seeing my big brother's smiling face for the first time in two years...... This is where I belong after all."
"I know the truth...... That's not his true self. This year for sure, I'll......"
"I wonder if I can really do it...... No, I must do it. I have to regain that relationship."
"My preparations should be more than enough. There's no way I'll let it go that way again......"
And,
"It's been 10 years since I last came to this town, hasn't it? Perhaps I'll be able to see that person. I hope I see him......"
All of these feelings entangle like cherry blossom petals dancing in the wind.
And so begin the many stories......

One day, while Reiji and his sister Erika are out for a walk, Reiji slips on the stone steps of a small shrine, cracks his head, and ends up at death’s door. Fortunately for him, a cat-eared girl named Fuuko appears to save his life. She says she’s a god and that, in order to save him, she put three of the seven fragments of her divine powers into him, and now they’re trapped inside.
If that all wasn’t bad enough, Erika seems to have lost her memories of the accident that nearly took Reiji’s life… and mysteriously enough, she’s sprouted cat ears of her own! Reiji decides to set that problem to the side for the moment, though, because, as it turns out, not only do gods need all their powers, ordinary people don’t do so well with shards of divinity stuck inside their skulls! Unless Reiji and Fuuko can get the fragments out of Reiji and back where they belong, both of them are doomed to die. Thus, the two join forces to extract the fragments!
Unfortunately, step one of most of Fuuko’s brilliant schemes for getting her powers back is: kill Reiji. She can only think of one one way to safely remove them—shocking Reiji’s heart to its very core. The one silver lining to all this is, their school, Mahiro Academy, is soon to go on summer vacation, so they’ve got a lot of free time.
It’s a life-or-death race against the clock for Reiji and Fuuko!

Ai and his childhood friends used to play together as part of the ‘World Defence Club’. But one day, it disbanded and one of the girls changed schools, so they gradually lost touch with one another.
Now the girl who had left, Hiiro, returned and their circle of friends came together once more. However, this time their club name was the ‘Shrine Gate Defence Club’. They give advice to students for relationships, even though they themselves have no experience in romance. As they participate in club activities, they started to think about falling in love too.
Just the usual feng - boring charage that does not stand out in any aspect

Chrome is an agent for the Divine Intelligence Agency who had just finished a difficult infiltration mission when he was suddenly called in by his boss for a new task. When he was told that it was concerning the royals, he wondered what dangerous job it would be this time, so he couldn’t believe his ears when he heard what it was.
“Eh? It’s just attending a school…?”
“Correct. They want you to enrol as a student in the human school specified in the file I just gave you. As a human, of course.”
It seems that recently the princess of the God realm was thinking about studying in the human world, so they wanted him to do some investigation in advance. He had hoped to take a much-needed break this summer, but he had no choice but to accept the mission.

“On the day of the festival, let’s go steal a mask from a stall”
Shou’s girlfriend Yuuna suddenly said those words on the day before the festival. She was the type who would come up with outrageous ideas all the time, but at that time he was particularly looking forward to it. She was a capricious girl who wouldn’t get close to people, but since he was worried about her, he couldn’t just let her be and before he knew, he had fallen in love with her.
“I don’t want a bought mask. I want a stolen one”
He unwillingly went along with her on that fateful day and carried out their plan. But the sight of her running into the crowd was the last he saw of her.
Three years later, Shou had left his hometown to attend university in Tokyo and was now going out with his childhood friend Rie. Even though it’s a busy time for them with seminars having started, he fully enjoys his days studying with her. One month before the start of this year’s festival, he received a message on his phone with no sender.
“On the day of the festival, let’s go steal a mask from a stall”
Their frozen time together has resumed once more…
Time leap game that keeps the tension till the end and is only compromised by vague ending. Might review it if find nothing in more need of attention.

After having a rather intense session his door bell rings. He quickly goes to answer it and finds his cousin Miyayuki there. In his haste he fails to cover his lower half. But instead of shock, Miyayuki seems to be interested. She watches him closely until he splatters her face with his cum.
From now on he finds his private sessions are now with different women showing him their bodies.

Spiral is a prequel to the events of Shuffle 2, following an agent of the gods' realm who infiltrates a xenophobic human-only school to see if the ideology there is a threat to the upcoming foreign transfer student princess.  Quality-wise, it has some problems... primarily because it feels nothing like something from the Shuffle series for the most part (all human heroines is a bad look for the series).

Kin'iro Loveriche's fandisc is one of the better ones out there, especially due to the addition of the Ayaka path, which is pure comedy gold.  For those who didn't like how the original Ria path ended, there is an alternate path in this game to satisfy people who don't like that much bitter with their sweet.

Evenicle 2 - I'll be blunt that Alicesoft keep the same gameplay in this sequel although at least it's justified seeing that the rule has some similarities as first Evenicle, and also they changed so that the healer can heal more than once in a battle in exchange that they removed the healing item that was quite overpowered. Alicesoft did try to localize this by themselves and they removed one sex scenes in the trial so that it can be accepted by Valve, but alas Valve still removed the trial anyway so there's no chance for Alicesoft to sell this on Steam. Time will tell whether Alicesoft will try to find some new store to sell this in English or going to ask some help from Mangagamer here.

Sakura Celebration - This VN was localized by Sol Press and the work on this seems almost done, but you should know that they hit some obstacle and thus it might be impossible to expect them release this. Anyway as per Windmill VN it has fantasy setting with the witch and magic, although overall we should expect this as light charage here.

Nekogami - Like Evenicle 2 this VN was also somehow banned by Valve so much that it caused Sekai to delay the release for indefinite time. Oh well.

Yumeiro - One of Feng's VNs that Sekai got the license by bargain (Possibly) and that it's the one that has been worked on by Sekai here with the current progress was at a quarter translated. Other than that, well I guess we can expect this as another light charage.

Kirikoi Golden Time - Seeing that some if not most of player who finished Kirikoi may be upset with the true ending, obviously Saga Planet tried to appeal the player who've been upset and thus we have the first fandisc that they created in order to provide the alternative true ending of Kirikoi. Of course understandably some who find out that the true ending of main VN is meaningful would likely dismissed the alternative true ending as fanservice, but at least it's good that Saga Planet did provide the options for both side of players. Oh yes other than the alternative true ending, we also have two routes from the side characters along with side stories for all of the heroines. All in all, at least this FD is a good addition for Kirikoi to a degree. Also yes Nekonyan did license this as well and currently it's been in translation work, so at least Kirikoi fans can get both of the main VN and the FD in English.

That's all for my comments in regard of February 2019 releases.
