The protagonist, once debuted as a child prodigy but now left the path of the theatre arts, indulged in nostalgic memories.

An irrational story born out of curiosity.

Clarias - Another attempt from GIGA to write another robot story after they decided to self-destruct(?) with Baldr Bringer, and this time they mixed isekai element along with bring Niijima Yuu to the table. And apparently it didn't work because apparently Niijima's writer here might be not fit for this VN seeing that it has sci-fi setting while Niijima previous works here are the best when it come to involving magic and fairy tale. Then again though, perhaps this time he has more problem with the writing the story according to the review. Oh yes there's also complain that there's no new game plus in this VN, so GIGA decided to patch it later which obviously would raise a lot of questions.

Lupercaria - The most well received VN in this month (And perhaps for the whole 2021) in which it has a lot of technical writing in regard of opera and drama. Of course there's more than that, namely that the director manage to pulled the best of the VAs performance so much that it said that it's quite intense when the VAs acted. Other than the good performance from the VAs, this VN also has several backstory which to say can be quite dark to several degree. Lastly I want this to be localized, although looking at the current situation I suppose it's only possible if Shiravune somehow can convince the company to localize it.

That's all for what I can comment in regard of February 2021 releases.
