3. Fuyu Kiss フユキス  [210721] Giga
Japan was in the midst of a record setting cold wave.
My city - Uetsuruto - was no exception, as we were beset by day after day of freezing weather.
Then, one night, I received a text from an unknown number.
"Look outside your window! Snow! It's snowing!"
Sure enough, the world outside my window had been transformed into a white wonderland.
"I'm sorry to text you so late. It's just... you were the first person I wanted to tell."
That was the final message they sent me.
I had no idea who the sender was.
Yet I had the strange feeling that, very soon, I might just fall in love.
In a world of snow, a warm and gentle love story is woven.
When seasons are over to put in the title, there are still twelve months to use with Kiss

From these new discoveries, "he" is born. An illegal experiment mixes thousands of memories into a single vessel, creating a wholly new being.
Having only the memories of others, doubts about who he truly is start arising in his mind, until he gathers the courage to go out into the world in search of his true self.

8. Houkago⇒Education! ~Sensei to Hajimeru Miwaku no Lesson~  放課後⇒エデュケーション!~先生とはじめる魅惑のレッスン~  [210721] Escu:de
Rurinofune (lapislazuli ship) Academy ––
The school where ambitious young students from all over the country gather day after day in the pursuit of knowledge. It's not a boys school per se, however, the student body consists of 100% males, which makes people refer to it as the "aromantic stone ship."
However, lately the principal has been employing more professional women teachers, who are adept in many fields. Those women have been enjoying reverence and popularity as though they were idols by the male student body.
Our protagonist, Arato Kanata, had been moving away from his prestigious hometown and came to Japan and attends Rurinofune Academy as an off-season transfer student.
In order to have a chance at graduation, he has to take some after-school remedial classes for several months. And the girls responsible for these classes are those cherished girls that all the students yearn for.
Being closer to these teachers than the average student, the character of Kanata's relationship with them soon turns intimate...


9. Yuukyuu no Campanella 悠久のカンパネラ [210730] Windmill Oasis
The kingdom of Atlastia --
North of the world, there's a group of flying islands - this is where the flying continent of Atlastia and its well-known titular kingdom is located. And not only in Atlastia itself - everywhere across the flying islands - the legend of a particular clan is being passed down from generation to generation.
The legendary heroes clan, "Oasis."
Even though they had saved the continent 100 years ago, their sub-commander Chester Silver has laid dormant for ages now. Now, about 100 years have passed and as Chester wakes up from his long arduous slumber he...
...bears witness to the Idol Princess Claria singing her songs to entertain the public. He wakes up as being one of her supporters cheering her on.
And then --
Spurred on by Claria's admiration for the Heroes Clan "Oasis," Chester Silver gathers his former companions, the twin sisters Angelique and Juliet Gilbert, to embark on a new adventure.
At the same time, a mysterious woman who had woken up from her slumber in the crypt of a ruin, Colette says:
"Now that Colette has woken up, this world's fate is sealed."
Strange incidents begin to occur in the world and with the causality of 100 years past intertwining, the adventure Chester seeks is closer than he thinks.
For those who liked prequels

Yuukyu no Campanella - Once again Windmill make a VN with fantasy setting and this time it involved a middle age setting like the old Campanella from 2009. No much to say other than it might be nice if you like previous Campanela VN and it's too bad that Sol Press no longer be able to localized Windmill VNs because I look forward to see the VNs with RPG like setting getting localized.

Parquet - First Yuzusoft VN that tried to remove the sex scenes, and let's just say that some didn't like the development so much that Parquet here got review bombed. If anything else, at least it seem subside when Nekonyan did released this in English. Parquet here is about the MC who didn't have his own identity thanks to being the result of an illegal experiment, and after he ran away he met two female who turned out were also the victim of illegal experiment. Well since this is the experimental VN from Yuzusoft it's understandable if Parquet is quite short, and good job to Yuzusoft for hiring Touyama Nao as one of the VA.

Amayui Labyrinth Meister/Amayui 2 - Initially I did think on why Eushully did make a sequel of Amayui seeing that the prequel itself is already complete enough, and while my opinion here is not change much in regard of the story (Didn't really need the sequel seeing that in here Avaro just solved the problem in a new country) at least I can say that Eushully improved the gameplay here. As for the gameplay here, it repeat Himegari, Kamidori, and first Amayui which mean that Eushully thought that Tenmei gameplay is quite flawed. That said though, Eushully did return to Himegari when it come to item drop system although Eushully here is quite nice with them add several way to make the game easier, so you shouldn't have too much problem to play this compared to Himegari. Lastly it has English interface patch courtesy of Depravity and ZAP, and currently Depravity make a narration patch for Amayui 2 here.

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