VN of the Month June 2021 - Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger



I'd rather nominate an absolutely incomplete title Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger than choose from several moege-like games.


1. Toshishita Kanojo 年下彼女  [210625] Azarashi Soft 1
"When I grow up, I'm going to marry you, Onii-chan!"
This kind of promise is the least likely to be kept in the world.
At least, the protagonist, Yunagimoto Yuusuke, believed as much when he thought back on the distant memory of that promise.
Then, one day, a younger female relative of his showed up at the apartment where he was living alone and said "I'm old enough to get married now. Will you keep your promise and take me as your wife?"

2. DraPri Guu-ta-life 2 竜姫ぐーたらいふ 2  [210625] Whirlpool
It has been a few weeks since Judgment Day, when dragons filled the skies of the world.
People were trying to adjust to a new normal life.
However, in the distant skies of the… Star world, a situation was brewing.
The dragons are split in half over the treatment of humanity.
In the midst of this, the king of the dragons of the “sea” and “water” factions descends to earth (at his own discretion).
In the blink of an eye, he chases humans away from the world’s oceans and declares, “This ocean belongs to us,” and “Humans are off limits."
The world, deprived of summer resorts, fishing rights, and even the right to travel freely between nations, is in a state of great weakness.
And a few days later…
Takeshi and Haru are still lazing around, and Suzuka is taking care of them, when Dorami comes to invite them for a sea vacation.
Although they feel some kind of suspicion, they can’t resist the temptation of the sea.
What awaits Haru and her friends when they stand in the sea, which has now become a magical land ruled by the sea dragon tribe?
(For now, we’ll have a barbecue and fireworks.)
For those who liked prequel


3. HajiLove -Making * Lovers- ハジラブ -Making*Lovers-  [210625] Smee 1
"Dating someone that's not your soul mate is a waste of time.
The only kind relationship I'm interested in is one that's sure to have a happy ending.
If you're going to fall in love, fall in love once.
Find your ideal partner, a person that you love so much that it feels like you're burning up inside."
My beliefs about love were abnormal, clearly. My classmates certainly seemed willing to hookup with anything that walked, and they appeared happy enough.
But I realized something in my 2nd year of high school. My soul mate wasn't going to just fall out of the sky into my lap. I wanted to experience a real, flesh and blood love, not some made up fairly tale version of it that only existed in my head.
-The childhood friend that wants to spend her life at your side-
-The classmate that dreams of meeting her knight in shining armor-
-The underclassman that wants to become an expert at romance-
-The upperclassman that longs to bring happiness to the family she holds dear-
My meeting these girls was nothing but a series of coincidences.
But if what happens next is up to me, then maybe I can decide it starts right here, right now.
I won't know if I'm making the right moves or not until this is all over.
All I know is that the only one that can turn a chance encounter into true love is me.
The heroine and protagonist suddenly start dating, and as they spend time together, they fall in love for real.
This work inherits the concept and world view of its predecessor, "Making*Lovers". It is a student version with all the heroines attending a school, with the concept of the shape of love that develops after a relationship is formed and the element of "shyness" is strengthened.
There are English reviews


4. Lilium Wedding Plan リリウム・ウェディングプラン  [210625] Barista Lab
Goddess promised marriage when she was young. Main character returns to grandparents' house for a short time. There he is met by the goddess 
Lilium who calls herself his wife.
Vanilla nukige


5. Ryuusei World Actor: Badge & Dagger 流星ワールドアクター Badge & Dagger  [210625] Heliodor 1 2 3
The Seventh Republic—the city despised by the sun.
Sunlight hasn't reached here since the last great war, and the shadows teem with vicious criminals.
With evil threatening on every side, the National Police Agency is a stronghold of justice.
Detective Ruka Hiryu belongs to the 13th Division, nicknamed the Sideliners, and treated like shit by the rest of the force.
With no major incidents to keep him distracted, Ruka has been investigating the sealed Cult Massacre case in secret.
Things change when the 13th picks up two new members.
The agency is shaken with unreliable rumors about the semi-mythical Shining Union, and as suspicions and conjecture fly like bullets, will Ruka, the 13th, and the NPA be unscathed?
There are English reviews


6. IdolDays 愛怒流でいず [210617] iMel Inc. 1
A young man working at an Akihabara-based agency that manages underground idol groups has been ordered to discover new idols by his boss. Now, he's at the end of his rope.
The protagonist is at a loss, finding that girls with the talent to become the kind of idol he's picturing are few and far between. He's sitting defeated on a park bench when he comes across a girl singing to herself while feeding some cats.
The girl's song is delicate, but her voice shakes him to the core. His heart stolen in an instant, the protagonist turns to the girl and tries to scout her to become an idol. However, the girl flatly refuses him, saying the idea is stupid, only to then disappear.
The next day, the protagonist gets called into the office, where he learns that the daughter of their sponsor has been hired as a member of staff and gets assigned to be her training supervisor. The girl who appears before the bewildered young man is the same one who turned down his scouting offer the day before.
The girl's name is Tsubaki Akanesaki. Though she's had several jobs, she got fired from all of them for getting into fights. What does fate have in store for a young man who's been assigned to train a girl whose a total delinquent?!
Game is released in English and has English reviews

Ryuusei 2 - I think I'd say enough in regard of Kinugasa, so instead let me say that it's quite obvious that he wrote Ryuusei just like back when he wrote Akagoei in that there'll be three parts of it and the second part here is obviously like the FD. As for the second part here, there'll be two new heroines routes and those heroines are the side characters in the prequel, and other than the routes at least Kinugasa did provided some more info in regard of the case from the prequel. As for whether we can have this in English or not, well it's up to Shiravune. By the way recently it has gacha game, but it should be obvious that we shouldn't expect Kinugasa write the new story in the gacha game, but rather in the new announced third part of it (I assume that it'll be the last part of Ryuusei trilogy). Lastly I did forget to mention this, so I'll say that I like the graphic of Ryuusei here.

Drapri 2 - There's two more dragon heroines, and I must say that their outfit are quite sexy lol. Other than that and Sekai did localize this as well, no much to say in regard of this besides that it's another short VN that focused on comedy with the dragon girls.

Hajirabu Making Lovers - When I see the announcement of it, I'm sort of wonder why Smee decided to make Makeover again seeing that the original is already standalone enough. Turned out that Smee decided to use Recycle in Space trope, only that they exchange the 'Space' part with 'High School' part in which Smee make the MC and the heroines are the high school students along with decreasing the number of heroines from five to four. As for whether it works or not, looks like the reception is quite mixed although if anything else looks like Smee still can maintain it's writing. As for who will localize this, while it seem that Shiravune can do it with HaremKingdom I would say that if possible it should be localized by Nekonyan seeing that they localized the original Makeover and the FD of it.

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