VN of the Year 2019 - Realive





2019 hit the new bottom in many aspects and marked the beginning of COVID era, so there was a noticeable loss in attention for visual novels by the end of it. I counted only 13 masterpieces, could not even get 100 openings in Visual Novel Openings 2019 . Without a clear favorite I'll call Realive VN of the Year .
Looked through 2019 several times and found nothing in dire need of a review. Since Swallowtail -Ano Hi, Ao o Koete- already has a good review, wanted to give an alternative look to D.C.4 ~Da Capo 4~ , but it's just plain too horrible, dropped after two routes, does not deserve to have a video and even minimal effort applied. Guess it's time to review something good then, notably,  Realive

I feel it's a mistake to say covid had an impact on vn attention because while the virus was first detected in late 2019, the spread of it only became mainstream news in early 2020. I blame lack of creativity more than anything.

VNs already began their decline in 2017.  It just became drastically more noticeable in 2019.

It's interesting... I subconsciously only consider JVNs to be VNs, even though my logical mind knows that EVNs are VNs to.  It's almost like VN racism.
