Around 30 years ago, superpowers known as ‘magia’ started appearing in Japan. Soujirou recently gained the ability to read other people’s minds. Normally these powers would awaken in people over the course of a few days, but for him, it took a full two years. Furthermore, he isn’t able to control his ability well and it gives him headaches from time to time. With the intention of getting rid of it, he decided to enroll in Shizuka-no-Umi Academy in Saema, a leading academic research city where magia users (saucers) gathered.
However, he was caught up in an incident on his first day and saw a fellow magia saucer for the first time. The girl Sumika used her power which can heal even the most serious illnesses, and he was so captivated by her that he wished to become just like her. Thus, he started to learn how to properly use his magia with fellow students Chihaya, Leeruu, Tsumuri and his younger sister Nazuna, the most powerful magia saucer in the school.

Ryuusei World Actor has two major flaws... it uses the ladder-style story structure and it is incomplete, even after its sequel.

Ren'ai Karichaimashita is a pretty standard charage.

Kokorone Pendulum is Clochette, and Clochette means two things... boobs and high-quality charage/plotge fusions.

Nekonin 3 - Yay for Sekai to localize the third part of Nekonin here as well.

Love Cube - A nukige about behind the scene in hentai manga, and all of the heroines are having big breasts along with the MC will have foursome sex scene with the three heroines. In case you want to see more detailed review in regard of this, MoeGamer's review here can fulfill what you want in that the reviewer even think that the artist here may has the same policy as one of the heroine here.

Nukitashi 2 - Since the conflict in the first game was already resolved, obviously the author need a new plot device for the story in the sequel and thus the author decided to use parallel world setting to allow the casts resolve the conflict like the first game. That aside, looks like the reception is better than the prequel seeing that the author decided to go into the meat of the story instead of trying to subvert the nukige part first. As for the chance of this to be localized, let's just say that Sol Press is not in the shape to localize this seeing that they have severe difficulties to released the prequel.

Ryuusei - Okay I did read that a bit and I admit that Kinugasa can set up the humor together with the setting, and the ending is admittedly not quite bad if you care more about the journey than the ending. Still though he should try to end his story properly anyway for the sake of the reader who obviously in favor of clear ending instead of open ending. Also as expected he didn't finish the story in the sequel, so there's a guess that Kinugasa will repeat his Akagoei writing with trilogy (Not to mention that Ruka is like Kaito to a degree). Writing aside, it's nice to see that Heliodor manage to hire Yuuki Ono (Josuke's VA in Jojo anime) and Daisy x Daisy (Fairy Tale 7th and 9th opening singer) to voice a character and sing the opening song respectively. Oh yes we can read this in English thanks to Shiravune release this in Johren, and it's too bad that Valve keep rejecting this for some reasons.

Karichaimashita - First of all I only know that ASa Project did improve their writing back in Sukiren at Karichaimashita here, and since this is ASa Project naturally we should see comedy and meme in here. Like Sukiren it also involved to have two love triangle, although it only prevalent in one case and for another case it's more like the twin fall in love with the MC. The MC himself is have a money fetish because he want to have his sister get the best treatment so much that he called siscon, and thus the story started because of said fetish forced the MC to do the shady job in which he basically paid to have relationship with someone. Nekonyan did license this, and they'll release it at 22nd later.

That's all for my comments on July 2019 releases.
