    Fabulous on Fuwa - February!

    By Kaguya

    Introduction   Welcome, fellow Fuwamembers, to the FuwaRecognition thread. Starting this March, we’ll be highlighting some of the best contributions made by our members each month. From snazzy blog articles to delicious forum threads, and perhaps even a few things more on the shitpost part of the spectrum, we'll keep an eye out for the cream of the crop. And then we'll gather them here. Just for you.   *holds up giant APPLAUSE sign*   A-hem, so this is the f

VN of the Month May 2014 - Houkago no Futekikakusha

Houkago no Futekikakusha is VN of the Month with Sakigake ⇒ Generation! as another decent game. That's exactly how Clephas considered, and with so few releases in May there's little room for discovery. Micchi in addition to Clochette title has expectations for Majo Koi Nikki and Haruka Kanata.   1. Shizuku no Oto しずくのおと [140505] aiueo Kompany 1 2 3 Manten Aquarium---a secret place nestled in the city.  Mayumi Nakanobe and Himeno

VN of the Month April 2014 - Racial Merge

Racial Merge is the only masterpiece of the month for me as I can at least enjoy it as a comedy. Clephas had to turn down all the candidates. Micchi pulls out another tremendous list of seven titles among which are PRETTY×CATION , Sora Tobu Hitsuji to Manatsu no Hana , Natsukoi High Pressure , Love Sweets , delayed titles and a fandisc.   1. Dream Club Gogo. ドリームクラブGogo.

Cat Meets Sugar Review

Sorry for being very late for this week VNTS Review again. As for this week, since we have Sugar * Style released by Nekonyan and that one of the heroine share the same name as pink Cure of Kira Kira Precure (KKPC), Ichika, I'd make a parody of one of KKPC image song and the song in question is 'Cat Meets Sweets' in which the song itself is an image song of the Cure that was voiced by Hatsune Miku VA (Fujita Saki). For more points, one of Sugar Style heroine (Kaname) here is has the same cat lik

VN of the Month March 2014 - Endless Dungeon

VN of the Month is Endless Dungeon with other masterpieces being Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa and Hello Lady! . Clephas nominated the last two. Micchi pulls out a ridiculous list of seven titles including additional Clover Day’s , Doko no Donata no Kanjou Route , Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort, fandisc and delayed ones.   1. Ar Nosurge ~Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Uta~ アルノサージュ ~生まれいずる星へ祈る詩~ [140306] Gust 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 On the planet Ra Ciel

Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin is VN of the month. Other masterpieces include Baka Moe Heart ni Ai o Komete! and Koi Suru Doll to Omoi no Kiseki ~Poupee de Souhaits~ . Clephas empathized the last one among the three. Micchi in addition to Koi Suru Doll does not mind playing Otonari Koi Sensou and fandiscs.   1. Fragment's Note 2 Side: Yukitsuki Fragment’s Note2 Side:雪月 [140227] Alvion 1 The Fragment's Note visual novel series returns wit

VN of the Month January 2014 - Bradyon Veda

Bradyon Veda is beyond reach in January. Clephas tried to choose a game that is good for everyone, so stopped at Sekai to Sekai no Mannaka de . Other nice choices are  Kimi to Boku to no Kishi no Hibi -Rakuen no Chevalier- and 12 no Tsuki no Eve . Micchi also feels for Melty Moment and Kiss Ato   1. Bradyon Veda [140124] Akatsuki Works 1 2 3 4 5 It’s been three years since the end of the tragic Great War.

Visual novel spinn-offs of anime video

I have decided to stop with these reviews where I do a short review and show the physical edition, but I have recently made a video where I talk about visual novels that are spinn-offs of anime so for anyone that liked getting more info on those titles you can check that out.       So far I have only made 2 parts but this will be a 4 part series where I will go through every VN based on anime I have read. I plan to release one part each week.

How to Make a Demon Slayer Review

Welcome to this week VNTS Review and sorry for being very late here. As for this week, well once again it's quite calm week in that there's no much talk when it come to official translation project, although in exchange there's some updates in regard of fan translation. Other than that there's controversial GL VN release by Hikari Field (They're not working with Nekonyan in regard of this for the reminder) along with there's a new translation project with the goal to translate Bishoujo Mangekyou

Noblelige! ノーブルリージュ! [Mana]

Foreword: I seriously neglected this game as a light novel short spin-off from an obscure maker. And guess what - it was a shocking blast akin to XBlaze Code: Embryo Synopsis: This is an all-ages cross-media series by bishoujo game company mana and light novel publisher MF Bunko J. It is written by Okano Touya and TAMAMI. The light novel covers the first part of the story, while the kinetic novel DVD that comes with the special version of the paperback details the second part of

VN of the Year 2013

Year 2013 exceeded my expectations. I was able to choose as many as 34 masterpieces, even one more than in fruitful 2012. Surprisingly, there's a better selection of chuunige as well - industry is absolutely alive and kicking. However, now it's truly the last year of abundance - sneak peek into 2014 shows the number of masterpieces being in the mid twenties. Visual Novel Openings 2013 .  My list of masterpieces in 2013: Boku ga Tenshi ni Natta Wake ChuSinGura 4

Random VN: Raillore no Ryakudatsusha

Raillore is 3rdeye's  most recent chuunige, made back in 2019.  At the time, I tried to play it and dropped it after the prologue, for a number of reasons.  The primary reason was the lack of narration in combat scenes... For some reason, 3rdEye has almost no narration in this game, comparative even to charage.  Instead, battle scenes are done using CGs, brief animations, and sound-effects.  Unfortunately, this means you generally have no idea of what is going on, due to the limitations of such

VN of the Month December 2013 - Sengoku † Koihime ~Otome Kenran ☆ Sengoku Emaki~

Sengoku † Koihime ~Otome Kenran ☆ Sengoku Emaki~ and Timepiece Ensemble are masterpieces of the month. Clephas liked the first one more. Micchi likes the second one, plus Magicalic⇔Sky High   1. Kaihou Shoujo SIN 解放少女 SIN [131205] MAGES. GAME 1 2 3 4 A sequel to Liberation Maiden, although it sheds the three-dimensional shooting gameplay in favor of a visual novel approach. Liberation Maiden SIN follows the exploi

VN of the Month November 2013 - Electro Arms -Realize Digital Dimension-

Electro Arms -Realize Digital Dimension- is VN of the month. Other masterpieces include HHG Megami no Shuuen and Izayoi no Fortuna . Clephas seemed to have the same favorites. Micchi instead prefers Sakura Mau Otome no Rondo , Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai and Amatarasu Riddle Star   1. D.M.L.C -Death Match Love Comedy- D.M.L.C.-デスマッチラブコメ- [131128] Kemco Corporation Death Match Love Comedy, does the exact opposite of usual vis

JRPG: Saga Frontier Remastered

Saga Frontier is one of the most oddball rpgs to have been released on the ps1, and the ps1 was long considered the 'era of classics' for all jrpg-dom, with remakes of the earlier major names and innumerable newer classics being released for the system.  The Saga series in general is something of an acquired taste, due to the sheer opaqueness of the leveling mechanics and odd, often nonsensical experimentation with random game elements.   In terms of game mechanics, Saga Frontier is easily

Sakura Childhood Friend Review

Once again sorry for being late in regard of this week VNTS Review, and as for the title I just combined 'Childhood Friend' from the nukige that Sekai was suddenly released and 'Sakura' from Sakura Forest Girls that Winged Cloud just released recently so we have 'Sakura Childhood Friend' as this week VNTS Review. As for this week, there's Frontwing new announcement in that it has a lot of big breast heroines and that it's a nukige that'll be released at May later. Other than that, we have Sekai

VN of the Month October 2013 - Getsuei Gakuen -kou-

What a small number of new releases. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- is the only game that catches the eye for me, though including it might be not fair as its Windows version came only couple years later. Clephas chose fandisc of Walkure Romanze. Micchi likes Cocoro@Function and Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade   1. Getsuei Gakuen -kou- 月英学園 -kou- [131010] Arc System Works 1 2 3 The game revolves around the protagonist, Kou, who has just barely been tra

VN of the Month September 2013 - Yume ka Utsutsu ka Matryoshka

I choose Yume ka Utsutsu ka Matryoshka as VN of the Month. Chephas hesitated between the two, but chose Karumaruka * Circle . Micchi adds Ichiban Ja Nakya Dame Desu ka and some imouto nukige to his set of interests.   1. Yahari Game demo Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. やはりゲームでも俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。 [130919] guyzware 1  The story follows two loners, the pragmatic Hikigaya Hachiman and beautiful Yukinoshita Yukino, who despite their varying

VN of the Month August 2013 - Innocent Bullet -The False World-

There aren't masterpieces this month for me. But if I still had to choose, I'd probably point at Innocent Bullet -The False World- . Clephas decided not to choose anything. Zen picks Aozora Stripe and fandiscs while Micchi adds Hoshi no Ne Sanctuary and PriministAr to already tremendous wishlist.   1. Senjin Otome ~WOTAKU ni Yadorishi Kokoro ni Negau wa...~ 戦刃乙女 ~WOTAKUに宿りし心に願うは…~ [130808] Debo no Su Seisakusho Nanahana-senpai has a breakfast as

Sniper of the Mountains Review

Sorry for being very late for this week VNTS Review, and I'll tell the title at PS later. As for this week, let me say that it's quite interesting in that we have Musicus release in that it's one of well received VNs that was just released by Mangagamer a week ago, and other than Musicus we have JAST did release their BL VNs. We also have two updates in regard of Black Lilith nukige, in which one of those updates is the release of the full translation patch. All in all, this week is more or less

VN of the Month July 2013 - XBlaze Code: Embryo

XBlaze Code: Embryo is VN of the Month for me due to personal reasons. Other masterpieces are Seihou no Prismgear and Tojita Sekai no Tori Colony . Clephas liked the last one and also Otome Riron to Sono Shuuhen -Ecole de Paris- . Micchi in addition to Otome Riron is interested in Amairo*IsleNauts and Gleamgarden no Shoujo.   1. XBlaze Code: Embryo [130725] Arc System Works 1 2 3 4 5 6 The protagonist, Touya Kagari, is a resident of

VN of the Month June 2013 - Gensou no Idea ~Oratorio Phantasm Historia~

Gensou no Idea ~Oratorio Phantasm Historia~ is my choice for the month with another great titles being Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi. and Futagoza no Paradox . Clephas backed the last one back then and also Natsukumo Yururu which is too loli to even consider for me. Micchi throws four more colorful titles in.   1. Rou-Kyuu-Bu! Himitsu no Otoshimono ロウきゅーぶ! ひみつのおとしもの [130620] Vridge Inc. Continuation of basketball team struggle.

Random VN: Ryuukishi Bloody Saga

Ryuukishi Bloody Saga might very well be the best unique work Akabei Soft 3 has created in the time since ABS2 forced a bunch of subsidiaries to merge to create it.  It is a work I also come back to every few years simply because it holds a unique place in my heart.   Ryuukishi is the sequel to Ryakudatsusha no In'en, a Clock-up style super-violent H-horror VN written expressly for the purpose of setting up things for Ryuukishi.  As such, to understand this VN, you have to understand the ev

Astelight Trilogy 星継駅擾乱譚 / 星継駅年代史 / 星継駅疾走軌 [raiL-soft]

Foreword: I know I'm supposed to be finally reviewing Second Novel, but I give up. It has heavy gameplay elements and I'm stuck there at some point even with walkthrough, so I probably need to waste 10 more hours brute-forcing it, which I totally don't intend to do. Wanted to record at least short stories, but they aren't in the form of visual novel - just scanned light novels or whatever in vertical format and manual page flipping, no text hooking for them. As for Astelight games,I recorded all
