Shogo Okiie, an ordinary office worker, visits Kinshibori Park in the dead of night with his friend, Yoko Fukunaga, to investigate a well-known local ghost story: The Seven Mysteries of Honjo. Shogo doesn’t quite believe Yoko when she talks about how the Mysteries are connected to the Rite of Resurrection and doesn't pay it much mind - that is, until strange events begin to unfold before his very eyes.
Meanwhile, several others are making their own investigations into The Seven Mysteries...
Detectives investigating a series of strange deaths, a high-school girl seeking the truth behind her classmate’s suicide, and a mother who has sworn revenge for her lost son.
Their desires and motives intertwine and interplay, with the Seven Mysteries of Honjo at the core, leading the story towards a battle of wits and curses.
Detective horror has English reviews

Losing his father when he was young, and currently lives with his mother, the protagonist―― Morino Kento.
In his second year at Aketo Hanabue Private Academy, he goes on a school trip which takes him far away from his hometown, to a place filled with exotic tourist attractions.
But at that destination, Kento's cousin lives there, and it is a town where he is already familiar with, so he does not expect anything much, however......
Caught up in a commotion caused by Shishikura Ooga―― An extremely shy childhood friend who comes from the strongest lineage in human history.
Helping a girl in trouble, becoming a "hero" for Karakuchi Hibana―― An ojousama who visits the same tourist attraction by chance on the school trip.
Getting acquainted with Amaeda Chiwa―― A cute local student and his cousin's best friend.
Earning respect as a "hero" from Aijou Michiru―― A signboard girl in the shopping district at the tourist attraction.
What should have been a school trip with nothing to expect turns out to be an exciting trip filled with new encounters.
However, when such a trip comes to an end in the blink of an eye, parting ways with these girls (except Ooga), Kento feels a bit lonely.
But with the end of such trip―― from now on with these girls, comes the start of the new love stories.
Just a relaxed stage for dating, not expecting anything good out of it

Shin Koihime- started this, immediately asked for a return on the website I bought it from.  If you wanted more Cao Cao and friends, it will probably satisfy, but it isn't really interesting for people who want more than just a fandisc, at least from what little I played.

Koi ni Amae wa Hitsuyou desu- It is Hook soft, so predictably it will be a saccharine romance with a truly mundane premise.

Kemonomichi 2- The first game was boring, I seriously doubt this will make anything better.  Whirlpool should return to its old style of making plotge masquerading as rom-coms.

Base Son is definitely milking too much Koihime Musou franchise so much that I have hard time to follow the VNs in the franchise (With most of those untranslated to boot).

After looking on how Sekai manage to suddenly localize Slobbish Dragon Princess 3 and I'm not surprised with that, it should be obvious that they'll pick Animal Trail 2, so of course the question is 'when it'll be announced' instead of 'will Sekai localize this'. Oh yes, Animal Trail 2 here as expected had the remaining girl become the heroines, and of course the graphic is still good looking.

For VN of the Month for March 2023, seeing that there's only five VNs, I would say that both of Koi ni Amae ga Hitsuyosu Desu can be qualified seeing that it's one of the lengthy VN release, although Paranormasight is also good candidate as well for being mystery VN and all (Bonus point for it's been available in English).

That's all for what I can write in regard of March 2023 releases.
