  1. H-Code please!

    If ITH/ITHVNR does not find the thread, hongfire AGTH thread is the one that helped me a lot of times as it has lots of hcodes on those hundreds of pages. Textractor seems to have built-in manual hook search. Tutorial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eecEOacF6mw I myself use Hook Any Text to find threads https://mx-futhark.github.io/hook-any-text/
  2. Need help with ITH

    Google hongfire ITH, it has lots of versions. Might also try ITHVNR, not sure for Win7 compatibility, though.
  3. Nijuubako 二重箱 [KeroQ]

    Foreword: I don't review anthologies and fandiscs, but this time I have to deviate from this tradition for the fandisc of the game of the year 2000. Title: Nijuubako Developer: KeroQ Date: 2001-11-30 VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v6247 Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwioMkDCF88&list=PLs4Gp5VU4Fv9AcuZZF8nvm-DbGt0ZKEI3 Synopsis: Among other accessories there are two stories: 1. 『イルとスイの日常』"Il and Sui everyday" is about Il and Sui exploring outer world and own sexuality. 2.『砦に帰す』"Return to the Fort" is about Aya group expedition sent by Iga ninja to investigate an ancient Yagyuu fort five years before events of Nijuuei. Structure: None Length: 1 hour + 2.5 hours Game type: Mythology samurai horror mystery. Difficulty: None. Just one fake choice. Character Design rating: 6/10 Protagonist rating: 7/10 Story rating: 9/10 Game quality: 8/10 Overall rating: 8/10 Rating comments: "Return to the Fort" story really impressed me. It restored several loose links in the original game and developed some existing themes. "Il and Sui everyday" is a banal fan-service story, I won't touch it in any way in this review. Protagonist: "Return to the Fort" has very curious approach to protagonist. Main protagonist is experienced expedition leader boy Kiriha. It's a convenient position since we can talk to everyone and coordinate their activities. But when the story dictates it, protagonist can be changed. Sometimes we don't even know who is our current protagonist hidden behind generic "Man". Characters: There are several female heroines, but most of them don't get enough screen time to even remember their names. Aya is the main heroine, and it's especially wonderful that her mystery from the original game gets solved here, even two mysteries. Can't even hint, though. Story: The very beginning is a group of ninja sent by Iga ninja clan getting to the fort in the wilderness with a lot of losses. Something's killing them one by one, presumably something from the fort. But as they sneak into the fort, it turns out to be empty... that's literally the very beginning. There's a lot and lot of development from this point. CG and Sound: Great CG and finally voicing. Manga strips for action scenes are as cool as ever. Thoughts: 1) Both Nijuuei and Nijuubako are released on the same day, 30th November, but the years are different. I seem some playfulness in releasing both games on the same date. 2) Aya is not the only character from Nijuuei in "Return to the Fort", so it feels totally like a prequel, not like an individual character story. 3) "Return to the Fort" not only tells the story of Aya and another character from Nijuuei, but it's also a detective story, a horror story, an action story and the story of cursed sword Muramasa. Overall comments: Surprisingly lovely game as a result. Good mix of genres and lots of references to the original game. That's the way fandiscs should be - additional story-focused piece rather than worthless fan-service.
  4. VN of the Month November 2001 - Nijuubako

    Kazoku Keikaku , Daiakuji and Nijuubako make the masterpieces of the month, but the winner is Nijuubako 1. Deep Voice [011102] Apricot The story is set in an old Western-style hospital where Takumi was confined after he was in an accident. Since then Takumi has experienced an odd condition where he can see the "deep voices" of the past events bound in different parts of the hospital. He seems to be able to also slip into other people's consciousness while being asleep. Together with Amano Aki, a journalist, he wants to investigate about the mysterious past of the hospital. Suspense hospital story. The structure is quite complex and directing is good, but story is not special at all. Forced H scene only subtract from attractiveness. 2. Kazoku Keikaku 家族計画 [011102] D.O. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 Tsukasa, a fiercely independent youth who lost his parents at an early age and now spends his days working at a Chinese restaurant to make ends meet. Reluctant to form interpersonal ties lest they be shattered, Tsukasa is nonetheless unable to abandon the illegal immigrant girl he finds collapsed in the alley behind his workplace one day. Confronted by her utter helplessness he takes her in, an encounter that opens the door to a new life - one where he faces the challenge and wonder of being no longer alone. Tsukasa soon finds himself at the unwilling nexus of even more lives, attracting a band of misfits and social outcasts around him that swell beyond the confines of his small apartment. They find shelter in an abandoned house, where despite Tsukasa's lingering doubts a pact is formed: the "family project", an alliance of mutual convenience and utilitarian support that despite the mistrust and antagonism among its members soon comes to mean much more. Game's localized and has English reviews. 3. Puchi Cherry ~Anata to Iru Kisetsu~ ぷちチェリー~あなたといる季節~ [011102] Giga Koichi returns to home town for the first time in ten years. Ten years changed characters of his old friends, but memories of the past remain the same. Will he find his loved person till school festival? Charage with not so good scenario (many contradictions), but lovely characters. Text is not emotionally transferred. Three of heroines are old friends, and game features some nice reunion scenes, and the last heroine is a newcomer. 4. Memories Zero ~Aoi Hikari no Yakusoku~ Memories Zero~蒼い光の約束~ [011109] Euphony Production A group of friends live in the neighborhood and study together. At the end of the midterm test there is finally time to stretch feathers and spend time going to camping trips, participating in school events and enjoying everyday life. At this time Satoru starts to have feelings for one girl... Timetable SIM without serious advancements in any field. 5. Sister☆Boy しすたぁ☆ボーイ [011109] Sequence 1 Your parents are going to leave you behind due to their work. You are Shun Miyama. You find out about this one day before their departure, and you also find out that they have already picked out your school and a place to live. You are waiting for Kasumi Sagara, a girl from your apartment to pick you up, but you feel strange. Well, guess what... The apartment you're going to be staying in is restricted to girls. They think you're a girl! Since you were little, people have always mistaken you as a girl. However, you're all man inside; face it, you're in heaven now!! Surprisingly orthodox love story. The girl with the highest favorability at the time of decisive branching gets her route. Psychology is depicted truthfully, but drama lacks impact. 6. Sister Heart ~Kokoro no Kakera~ Sister Heart~ココロのカケラ~ [011109] Ciel Main character is able to hear the voice of people hearts. One day his younger sister gets into a traffic accident resulting in a coma state. Returning home from the hospital protagonist encounters three angels who claim that sister's soul is in disintegrated state. He agrees to cooperate with the angels to restore the soul of his sister. For that he will need to oppose fallen angel mischief. Three angels are of different personalities and balance is set to tilt to one of the sides. So game is kind of SIM-heavy with the whole heart voice system and different angels stats. One playthrough is just two hours, and it's mostly about the capturing souls gameplay. 7. Twins 2 -Ren'ai Miman- Twins2 -恋愛未満- [011116] Discovery 1 In the previous "Twins," Kureha was able to hook up with Tsubasa Honami. This story takes us 6 months later down the road. Kureha's twin sister, Nao, is depressed because her brother takes all the girls she likes. As she's walking down the street, she sees a cute girl jump out in traffic during a red light. Nao runs over and saves her just in time. Nao looses consciousness, and when she wakes up, she's on the girl's lap. Before she is able to thank the cute girl, an ambulance comes and picks her up. The next day, Nao changes identities with Kureha to sneak into the school. She finds out that her name is Nami Sakanoue, and that she is one of the triplets in love with Kureha. Kureha is a lucky guy, but how will Nao's love end up? What will Kureha do? Not only will you find the girls from the previous "Twins," you'll find 6 new girls appearing in this powered up version! Lets get wild and get it on with many beautiful girls! Game resembles Sapphism no Gensou atmosphere in some routes as here boy has to pretend being a girl. Conversations and tempo are the strong sides, length and scenario aren't so good. Genre is close to moege. 8. Yukigatari 雪語り [011116] Tarte The game takes place in a snowy mountain area, where the protagonist takes part in a skiing course. Of course he isn't alone and, conveniently-enough, ends up with a lot of female company. Tarte first game ends up being a bugged moege, and a short one as well. First playthrough is 5 hours, but subsequent playthroughs with skipping only take some 40 minutes. 9. Hooligan フーリガン [011122] Frontwing 1 2 Yukito Nogi, a high-school student living by himself in the city, was out walking one night when a strange object fell from the sky... crashing straight into him. This object turns out to be a cosmic force, its power so great that it splits Yukito into three different entities, each composed of one part of his psyche. It also happens to give each part enormous psychic powers! However, he's only just started arguing with himself, when three different factions converge on him all at once. A trio of aliens, led by the self-aggrandizing scientist Olga Mengele, want to steal Yukito's power for themselves. Yuki and Yuka, a pair of sister demon hunters, believe Yukito to be a demon that must be sealed. And of course Hiromi Togo -- alias Trigun, defender of justice -- wants to use these events to prove herself as a superhero. There are three scenarios each consisting of 6 episodes. Each episode has its structure, so we can speak about 18 stories. By atmosphere game resembles Captain Love the most. Text is very simplistic to imitate superhero anime, genre is bakage. Card battles are short and easy enough not to hurt the overall pace. There are 2-3 H events for each heroine in PC version, some are animated. 10. Meippai Athlete めいっぱい☆あすりぃと [011122] Active Let's open a joint college festival for three schools! Such was the suggestion of main character to the student council. Somehow the plan is carried out and now the girl school, the geek school and the celebrity school are in the midst of joint preparation. Card battles are deployed at the end to beat other teams in cultural festival. Otherwise a common moege with too many pregnancy endings. Each route is very short. 11. Metamor Fantasy メタモルファンタジー [011122] Escu:de In this world; fairies, witches and all kinds of strange creatures live in a peaceful coexistence. Protagonist is Hatayama, he is a kind of monster that looks exactly like a small plush bear. He enrolled in the magic academy to study magic but lately his interest switched more towards the girls in the school than the magic studies. His magic allows him to transform himself to any monster he previously met. But to learn the magic to transform himself to a real human, he first has to master that divine magic called "love". Raising SIM + card battles + insult H scenes + magic girl. Somehow I don't like either element. 12. Pandora no Yume パンドラの夢 [011122] Pajamas Soft 1 2 The story starts on a summer holiday training camp for members of the arts club. As they are exploring the basement of the European-styled school building, they find a nursing robot called Suu, albeit non functional due to a used-up battery. After being brought back to life by the main character, Hirano Yuito, the robot, of female appearance, recognizes him as her new master. On the final day, the protagonist prepares to leave after spending an enjoyable week. An earthquake occurs, but he dismisses it as a casual event. However, before Yuito knows what's happening, all of them are warped back to a week earlier, memories altogether. As the pattern keeps looping, Suu seems to remember faint traces of the week period, and uncannily starts depicting traits of humanity. There are English reviews. 13. ReNN ~Another Story of Works Doll~ ReNN ~Another Story of Works Doll~ [011122] TopCat Five years have passed since puppeteer Senjo formed the complete body of "sub-doll". The dolls evolve each year, but the price tag remains sky high. Main character works at a plant and can't believe his luck to have found a sub-doll Renn... Not sure why we need another story if pretty much noone liked SIM part of the first game. 14. Yuurei wa Doukyonin!? ゆうれいは同居人!? [011122] Yui Koubou Tatsuya is a white-colar worker. One night after work he went back to his apartment, and found there Akane, a strange highschool girl, who is actually a ghost. And she wants to live with him as his new roommate. Even worse, she starts to follow him to his work, too. What he will do?! Ainos in the new Sogna, and this game looks totally like a Sogna game would. However, after a single road development there are four branches here with different heroines. Game's a bakage with animation as main attraction. 15. Shinsetsu Kamiya Ukyou ~Shokuzai~ 真説神谷右京~贖罪~ [011123] Altacia Ukyo is registered as a resident lawyer at Lithuania Law Firm. His division does arbitrage over reduction of excess debts of companies. One day two detective ask Ukyo to cooperate with finding manager of such company Okita who is suspected in bills fraud. Ukyo protects his client from detectives pressure, but one day Okita suddenly admits the crime and wishes to go to police. The night of the same day Ukyo spends a night with a girl. Five years later they get to meet again at surprising circumstances. This is the fourth work out of six visual novels dedicated to Kamiya Ukyou. Game's based on real events, so it's more about reality and impressions and not so much about a coherent story. There is no good ending, and the best variant you can get is be following exact actions of the hero that day. Since there's a big map to decide where to go, difficulty to get a proper ending is very high. Very unusual work for visual novels media, but unusual does not necessarily mean good. 16. Ajimu ~Kaigan Monogatari~ あじむ~海岸物語~ [011130] Arpeggio Seventeen year old Nakaido Hirosuke is just your average high school student. One morning as he arrives at the train station on his way to school, he catches sight of a beautiful girl, Ajimu Yasuna, and immediately falls for her. The two of them get to know each other and become friends, but he can't confess his feelings and she is unsure of hers. As events and other people present obstacles for the potential couple to clear, their relationship begins to develop and their feelings become clear. Pure love story, but with abrupt end. 17. Daiakuji 大悪司 [011130] Alice Soft 1 2 3 4 In a parallel universe, feminist "Womenrica" (a group called WIME) won World War II, and forced a female-centric constitution upon the defeated Japan. Japanese city governments "outsource" the task of peacekeeping to local organizations, all lead by females. Former juvenile delinquent, Yamamoto Akuji was one of the POW's who fought alongside Japan, only to end up having to become a prisoner of war for a year after losing against WIME. Once he is released from prison, Akuji heads to his home for the first time in three years, the grand city of Osaka where he is heir to the largest gang called the Wakame Gumi, in which his grandfather, Yamamoto Ippatsu, who was a legend among others "properly" inherited after sleeping with the daughter of the former landlord many years ago. While initially unhappy with how much the war has affected the cities setting, Akuji plans on visiting the love of his life, Haku Minka, and figures that she has grown to be a beautiful, and much more mature woman from the last time he saw her before being deployed to the war three years prior. As this warms his heart, he happily lingers to his home in hopes of having a celebration for his return. Akuji's moments of relief due to his house being still in one piece gets cut short when he finds that one of his grandfather's former lovers, Ichihashi Ran, has become the new boss of the Wakame Gang. He gets informed that he is no longer allowed to stay within the household of the Wakame Gang due to his gender, and the fact that only women can be at the ruling position of factions, due to WIME winning the war and changing many laws. Akuji is also told that his father passed away during the war and that his grandfather was absent from Osaka for a large amount of time in order to find and battle someone more powerful than he was, meaning that there was no other decent choice but to make Ran the leader of the Wakame Gang. Akuji, angered by the fact he no longer has a place to reside in, attempts to fight back as Ran orders the gang's lackeys to subdue him. Thanks to having his body worn out from jail, Akuji loses the fight and is thrown out of his residence. Akuji then shortly wakes up after only to become more infuriated, and takes out his frustration on an old drunkard bothering him, he gets stopped by the two Vice Leaders of the Youth Service Group, and is taken captive by them, Akuji then later manages to trick the both of them into liking him after lying about making his gang's most notable recipe, and instead treats them both to an amazing session. Due to how easy it was for him to subdue the two Vice Leaders, Akuji plans on using the Youth Service Group to rebel against the Wakame Gang in hopes of retrieving his household back. He shortly afterwords sleeps with the main leader of the Youth Service Group and makes careful preparations. Thanks to his past grudges against WIME, who have most of the power in Osaka, and the stress with having to deal with a corrupt woman taking his household, Akuji takes it upon himself to dominate Osaka, so that the city can be in proper hands once more. Soon after, his associates and personal trainers find word that Akuji has come back to Osaka, and end up joining the Youth Service Group to support Akuji, not only them, but a young girl who was a reserved, but powerful student by the name of Takega Satsu claiming to be Akuji's own aunt joins him as well. With multiple territories, blood to be split, and the management of his slowly rising company on the line, will Akuji be able to fulfill his dream of conquering Osaka all the while maintaining a genuine relationship with the choice of one of five different women who can potentially become his wife in the future, all while having different types of fun with multiple other women at the same time? It's a kill or be killed, high-stakes conquest as Akuji and his gang head straight to the top of Osaka! There are English reviews. 18. Ekiben 駅弁 [011130] Uran Main character Kentaro travels the country in search of stations not visited and station bentos not tasted yet. He does not have money to pay for station bento, so he pays with body and attacks the sales girl. It turns out that Kentaro is being watched by a mysterious "Senior upper alliance" organization. They are outraged that Kentaro was doing that right at the station depot, so now they are sending thugs after Kentaro one by one. A weird ero-tilt bakage. There is a stupid minigame for the fights with thugs. There are 6 chapters enough for 4-5 hours of play time. 19. Emblem Emblem ~エンブレム~ [011130] Malt Main character Shiro Kogetsu is an ordinary student who somehow gets elected as yakuza clan leader after his distant relative dies. He wants an ordinary school life, but his classmates start to evade him, and clan business gets in the way. Will he be able to find a girlfriend in these circumstances? Love comedy with comedy occupying first half and love second part. There are 5 heroines and 6 endings. The degree of fun and eroticism varies from one character to another to a maximum of 3 H events. Characters are of moege level, but yakuza comedy is decent. 20. Iris イリス [011130] Penguin Works Main character and his partner Seti helped two adventurers who were attacked on their way back from friend's wedding. The innkeeper asked them to find the attackers, and that marked the beginning of their journey. Iris is the fairy of protagonist, but she does not get her route or ending. Game resembles Slayers anime the most. Genre is RPG. Territory is limited just to inside the town. Number of battles is small. Game ends after finding the criminals, so it's more of a detective mystery than a might and magic fantasy adventure. 21. Nijuubako 二重箱 [011130] KeroQ 1 Among other accessories there are two stories: 1. 『イルとスイの日常』"Il and Sui everyday" is about Il and Sui exploring outer world and own sexuality. 2.『砦に帰す』"Return to the Fort" is about Ayu group expedition sent by Iga ninja to investigate an ancient Yagyuu fort. I'll write a full review. 22. Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! 3 Pia♥キャロットへようこそ!! 3 [011130] Cocktail Soft 1 2 Is the second true sequel to "Pia Carrot", set one year later than "Pia Carrot 2". There are English reviews. BLOCKED 1. Nurunuru -Joshi Ryou no Tsuyagoto- ぬるぬる -女子寮の艶事- [011102] Noise 1 Katsumi Ozaki is a journalist for a magazine. Miyuki Yoshino is his girlfriend, but they haven't even held hands yet. One day, Katsumi's boss tells him to sneak in and take some exotic pictures in a girls' dorm. At first, he doesn't want to do it. His friend is the building supervisor, and his girlfriend also lives there. However, curiosity eventually kicks in, and he decides to go. Your goal is to successfully sneak in and take pictures of these cute babes. This game has full polygons, just like most games from NOISE. You'll also meet up with the broken hearted Rikako Nishikura, and Yu Asakura, whose weaknesses are known by the building supervisor, and many more! We're confident you'll get excited listening in on girls' private conversations and secretly taking their pictures. Sneak in and enjoy!! Nukige 2. Tsuki 憑き [011102] ZyX 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 We are all not what we seem to be. Although we don't want to consider the possibility, there is a certain darkness lurking inside the hearts of all of us. If it is brought out through great pain, then terrible things can happen. Mizuno Yousuke is a young Japanese man. His life hasn't been very happy ever since his mother's untimely death while he was still a child, his father's remarriage and then again his untimely death in a recent car accident. Yousuke now lives with his beautiful step-mother and her quiet, reserved daughter, and although he has known great pain, it seems that all the women around him are striving to do all they can to ease his sadness. Perhaps it was all these sad events that caused his darkness to come out... Nukige 3. Yoku Dekimashita. よくできました。 [011102] Triangle Lovely tutor comes to main character for a 90 minutes study session.

He's an ordinary guy with an ordinary salary, although he has limits on how much he can spend.

Although suspicious, he brings the pendant home with him. This awakens the spirit in the pendant and with her support, our protagonist has to find his significant other. (... what happened to re-taking the entrance exams?) Non-Japanese 24. Kannagi no Tori 神無ノ鳥 [011129] Studio Miris 1 There is a place known as "Kannagi-san" (or Kannagi Mountain), which connects the world of the living with the world of the dead. Here, beings called the "Kannagi no Tori" (or Birds of Kannagi) live, and it is their job to take the souls of the people who die to Kannagi-san, where they can then pass on to the world of the dead. The "Kannagi no Tori" get sent out just before someone dies to retrieve their soul and bring it back. However, one "Kannagi no Tori," Ikaru, is different. He feels wrong about death, and typically when he is sent out instead of letting the death take place and retrieving the soul, he usually interferes with fate by preventing an accident, convincing someone not to commit suicide, or rescuing the person in danger to save their life. He still has not retrieved a single soul. He is given a "final mission" to prove himself as a "Kannagi no Tori," and if he fails, he will cease to exist. His mission is to retrieve the soul of a young boy, Watanaki Ruu, who is to die in a car accident on the first of June, in about one month. Over this month Ikaru has several interactions with Ruu and his family, and feels an usual tie to Ruu, and doesn't want to take his soul... but his fellow "Kannagi no Tori" friends are trying to make sure he gets his mission done because they don't want to see their friend cease to exist, and at the same time, they have missions of their own involving people around Ruu as well. Will Ikaru be able to finish his mission, or will he be unable to claim this soul as well...? Boys Love 25.

  6. Let me guess, your forum?

    I like necroposting here. It's not rare that some irrelevant post from 2012 or so gets a new life. There actually used to be chat here, and it only had to go after some recent Fuwapocalypse initiated by mandatory php upgrade. If Tay is poked long enough, reestablishing it might be possible.
  7. Let me guess, your forum?

    Reddit drives me mad as it's not individualistic enough. Flairs are repeatable, and posts have to get lost in megathreads. New topics get buried in news and useless steam sales in just one day. It all reminds a busy anthill. Fuwa is for punks of visual novels. We hardly ever agree on anything, and just as punks, we're not dead despite our golden days long gone.
  8. ASSASSIN Ann~アサシン・アン~ [Active]

    Truth be told, I already finished year 2001 and there's indeed nothing noticeable ahead. No reality is too short to take it seriously. Eve: The Fatal Attraction is actually a safe bet, just no so cool to bother a dead man's corpse. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien I respect, but just not my material. Maybe it's indeed time to give Tsukikagerou another look...
  9. Foreword: Assassins... hackers... I expected the second luv wave or Phantom of Inferno from this game. It proved to be quite different... Title: Assassin Ann Developer: Active Date: 2001-10-19 VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v6056 Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvGMXxkzdsU Synopsis: Four young people have the dream to stand on American stage. They set up dance team "J-RAP" and practice each day. of wanting to stand on the American stage, home of dance. They set up a dance team "J-RAP" and were striving for lessons every day. One day main character gets to know that another team member Ann is actually an assassin of a mysterious organization "Gopher". She asks protagonist for help, but he refuses due to strong sense of justice. He gets caught up in the struggle between "Gopher" organization and emerging religion "Tsunoda kai". And direct danger approaches members of "J-RAP". Structure: 3 days Length: 1.5 hour for first playthrough, 30 mins for consequent 7 ones Game type: Pseudo-action erotic thriller Difficulty: Easy, only three choices for two variants each, and each branch leads to a different ending. Character Design rating: 1/10 Protagonist rating: 1/10 Story rating: 1/10 Game quality: 1/10 Overall rating: 1/10 Rating comments: Game's a joke. Protagonist: Kensuke is a protagonist whose presence is not felt at all. Characters: There aren't heroine routes. Characters here have very little screen time, and they manage to waste a large portion of that time for spontaneous H events. Story: First thing that surprised me in synopsis is rap-band. Does such thing even exist in real world? Rappers don't really need a group, and a group of rappers can't read rap together. This is definitely not a rap band in the game. But we get to see in the opening and the ending the gigs of this band played by real life actors (and maybe even real musicians). And those are one of the most sore gigs I ever seen. Horrible song sung with hypocritical looks. But as game goes on every trace of story gets lost in spontaneous H events every odd minute and just absurdity of everything happening. Half of that little time devoted to the story protagonist just investigates dossiers of his future enemies via pc. The rest is a super forced development with some crazy characters like the monastery nun. When I tried to think what this game reminds me ... it's LIGHT MY FIRE by Take in 1998. Same musicians as main characters, same new religion threatening to conquer the world, same total absurdity of everything happening and same flood of H scenes. I recorded only one "branch" because other branches are totally the same except for H event with a different heroine or routes with just Bad endings, branches purely for additional H events. CG: There are quite a few cool ones, but they can't mend anything. The ratio of non-HCG to HCG are 1 to 4... Animated multi-staged H encounter with Ann only adds to the one-sidedness. Overall comments: I can only repeat that game's a wicked joke. It tries to mimic luv wave and Phantom of Inferno with lowest level content and not a single element to enjoy.
  10. I move in chronological order and read Japanese reviews found via egono.com to single out notable works for me to read. There aren't exactly millions of VNs, just a few thousands with just around 1000 of worthy ones.
  11. Little Busters: The Apology

    Oh, come on, you stole my glory! Now I'll have to apologize for every single Key work since they are all shitty. I'm even sure they managed to ruin the perfect Angel Beats anime. Key is the company that managed to fail 100% of works and anime they were involved in. I really had to force myself to watch Little Busters, Rewrite, Kanon, One and Planetarian anime while the the rest including Clannad and Air are just appalling. It's the most over-valuated company that ever existed.
  12. Green Green and Jisatsu no Tame no 101 no Houhou are the masterpieces of the month with the latter being the winner, but I'm reviewing Assassin Ann 1. Green Green グリーングリーン [011005] Overdrive 1 Green Green takes place in Japan’s countryside, in a non-descript region with forests and an isolated boarding school known as Kanenone Gakuen (鐘ノ音学園, literally translated as Sound of Bell Academy). The academy boasts of an entirely male population, and prides itself of the tradition of men growing amongst other men without any external influences to disturb them. The protagonist is named Yuusuke Takasaki, a second year student that is indifferent to the lonely, girl-deprived atmosphere that surrounds the school. His three friends, Tadatomo “Bacchiguu” Ijuuin, Hikaru Ichibanboshi and Taizou Tenjin, however, feel as if they are being denied their youth by having no females to interact with. As the summer session at Kanenone begins, Yuusuke and friends wonder what the change of season will bring to them, when Bacchiguu brings news that a bus full of girls has arrived on school grounds. As luck would have it, Kanenone’s current administration is considering making the academy co-ed, and in order to see how the change would affect the student body, first and second year girls have been brought to live on school grounds for one month. Though Yuusuke takes the change in stride, his three hormone-driven friends see this as the true beginning of their youth. There is an English review. 2. Jisatsu no Tame no 101 no Houhou ジサツのための101の方法 [011005] Duke 1 2 3 Torabishi Takuji hears a noise he has come to label "grey". He doesn't know the true nature of the noise, and finally has started to lose the ability to discern between "delusion" and "reality". "Delusion" and "reality", "life" and "death". Caught between those, he has started to seek proof that he "lives in reality". A stepsister that hides things from her brother. An energetic childhood friend. A beautiful girl with a coolness in opposition to her cute appearance. A mysterious classmate with an conduct soaked of the occult. A beautiful female teacher that lavishes her adult charm. A male student of whom several dark rumors talk about... These different characters will see their psyche cornered to the limit. This is their story. There are English reviews. 3. Taisetsu na Uta ~Koi Suru Yume Utahime~ たいせつなうた~恋する夢歌姫~ [011005] Q-X Naoya has a broken heart when he moves to a new town. New school life begins, and he's able to find another love. came over to a new town. And a new school life begins, and I know another love. In his dreams he starts to meet unfamiliar girls in unfamiliar clothes, and he does not know which reality is true - they both look so real. Moege from a new brand. Heroines are of diverse characters. Dream world is medieval European fantasy. It's not clear why dream world is introduced. Dream world does not help to solve problems of real world - they are solved exactly in real world. Story would not hurt by removing fantasy world. It's more life a flavor to make game more memorable. Ending is a bit forced in each route. 4. Tsukuyomi ~Marebito no Uta~ ツクヨミ~稀人の唄~ [011005] Ivory Main character leads a happy school life when school gets acquired by some emerging religion <Tendo Zen> organization and shrine maiden comes to his class as a transfer student. Protagonist starts to wander the world of dreams and reveals ancient ability "Lara Shrine" hidden in himself. With an ability to move between worlds wonderful encounters and miracles await him. Game starts as stalker type comedy and gets serious with time. Other world story only reaffirms relations with the heroine, but has no big influence on our world. Scenario feels incomplete. 5. Viper-M5 [011005] Sogna 1 Japanese mythology tells of youkai, supernatural forces of good or evil that inhabit human beings. Those that can tap this power can cause great changes in the world around them, whether through the good deeds they perform or the bad. Tsubasa, visiting his cousin and fellow youkai, Saori, discovers a plot at her school where the teachers are influenced by evil spirits who plan to demonize the entire student body. With the help of other good youkai, Tsubasa and Saori plan to defeat the teachers and restore peaceful order to the town. Video can be easily be found with words Viper M5 gamerip, so I won't record it myself. I was initially very surprised by the characters of this game - characters are absolutely new and quite different from usual Viper games. Two youkai who encounter other youkai and humans. But during the play it all became clear - these are remade characters from Houma Hunter Lime from their previous brand Silence, just youkai instead of demons. Even their hair colors are the same. Their roles are almost identical. Boy is an eternal pervert who can't miss any skirt, and girl is here to beat him every time that happens. That's basically it. Game consists of 6 episodes, and each episode is a small piece with its structure, enemy, H event and resolution. The story is more complex this time and and really interesting to read even without animated H events. Don't expect a real story though, just good youkai uncover plots of bad youkai and fight them. 6. Gyakuten Saiban 逆転裁判 [011011] Capcom 1 2 3 4 5 The game takes place in an urban city set in 2016 and later; for the Japanese versions, this city is somewhere in Japan, while the English localization places the games in Los Angeles, California. The fictional future justice system is such that when a person is accused of a crime, they are immediately given a bench trial presided by a judge, a prosecuting attorney from the state, and a defense attorney that must completely prove the accused innocent of the crime. Trials last 3 days at most, due to the large number of cases that the courts must deal with; if the accused cannot be found innocent after this time, their case is consigned to a higher court. The majority of the work during a trial is on the shoulders of the defense attorney who must cross-examine the witnesses brought forth by the prosecution to find contradictions in testimony to clear their client. The playable character is Phoenix Wright. He is a rookie lawyer fresh out of law school in the first game, taking a position at Fey & Co. Law Offices run by Mia Fey, a defense attorney that helped to acquit Wright of murder several years prior to the events of the first game. When Mia is murdered, Wright takes over the offices with the assistance of Maya Fey, Mia's younger sister, and renames the office "Wright & Co. Law Offices". The Fey family have the ability to channel spirits, which sometimes allows Maya to channel Mia's spirit for Wright to help in court. Wright develops a rivalry with prosecuting attorney Miles Edgeworth as they oppose each other in court... There are lots of English reviews. 7. Cosmic Man コズミックマン [011012] Soubi Kenkyuujo 1 A mysterious space creature, 'The Cosmic Man,' tries to save the earth from bad space monsters. In the year 21XX, Bad monsters from space threaten our peaceful life on earth. The Cosmic Man suddenly appears and beats the monsters. Cooperating with the earth defense organization, 'CAT (Cancer Attack Team)', Cosmic Man begins to get rid of the damage. People start to see the fighting Cosmic Man and space monsters on a daily basis. One day, a bad monster comes from space and destroys a city. Pushing his way through the crowd, a boy arrives at the center of the city. His name is Hironobu Kugami. He makes his living by stealing things at fire scenes. The Cosmic Man appears as usual, but the monster beats him. Cosmic Man decides to entrust his powers to a boy. That boy is Hironobu Kugami! From here on, Cosmic Man's attitude really undergoes a change. He starts to request 'girls' and 'money' in return for his efforts. Will the earth remain peaceful? Everything is now on the new Cosmic Man's shoulders... What would you do if the hero were a bad person? What will happen if the hero requests something in return for his work? These are the 2 concepts of this game. This game consists of 14 stories. Players advance through the game by talking with people, but you'll see the cool system of board games when you gather information and fight against monsters. Battles are just too boring. H event's aren't really exciting either. The gag parodies aren't enough to justify playing. 8. Lagnalock Lagnalock -ラグナロク- [011012] light 1 Our hero lives with Alpha, a childhood friend, in a small village in the kingdom of Faldeata. This is located on the west side of the Grandeek continent. Our hero has no friends except for Alpha and the priest who brought the two of them up. His father left him one item at his death: The mighty sword of Lagnalock. The hero and the priest share a secret regarding Alpha. The girl's true identity is a Diverse (DIV), a child of god. DIVs were born when the evil "Foreign Over" started showing up on this world. The army has been looking for DIVs because of their special magical abilities. Therefore, in order to protect Alpha, the priest gives her a new identity and has her working in the temple. It happens on the night of the village festival. Faldeata's prime minister orders their army "Black Dragon" to attack the village. The whole village is torched and the priest is killed. Maxim, the Black Dragon's commander, attempts to kidnap Alpha. His attempts are thwarted, when our hero starts fighting back with his new-found and mysterious powers. However, the defeated Maxim succeeds in implanting a seed in Alpha's chest. This seed is able to foresee the coming of God, and Alpha is to be sacrificed. Our hero can only hug Alpha and reassure her. He decides to set out on a quest with Alpha in search of a way to rescue her from her fate... Main problem in this game for me is the SIM part which actually feels more like a board game. You roll the dice and move around the map. Good squares make you acquire items and technologues, enemy occupied squares trigger battles. There are three heroines to capture, and their routes are short. 9. Love Semi ~Koi no Tokubetsu Shidoushitsu~ ラブゼミ~恋の特別指導室~ [011012] Gaia Main character enters a private academy with "priority guidance system" and emphasis on interviews. But what "priority guidance system" actually means? All of the seven capturable heroines are teachers. Period is just two weeks, so volume feels insufficient. Without some affinity for teacher heroines game looks boring. 10. Mix★Max Kimi to Boku to Nomaru wa... MIX★MAX キミとボクとの間には・・・ [011012] Zenos Main character is a member of microcomputer club which mostly includes ghost members. In order for the club to survive he must demonstrate achievements in culture within a month. With that the fight for club survival began. There are four heroines to capture. System is poor. Game soon becomes ero-tilt with H events coming out of the blue. 11. Assassin Ann ASSASSIN Ann~アサシン・アン~ [011019] Active Four young people have the dream to stand on American stage. They set up dance team "J-RAP" and practice each day. of wanting to stand on the American stage, home of dance. They set up a dance team "J-RAP" and were striving for lessons every day. One day main character gets to know that another team member Ann is actually an assassin of a mysterious organization "Gopher". She asks protagonist for help, but he refuses due to strong sense of justice. He gets caught up in the struggle between "Gopher" organization and emerging religion "Tsunoda kai". And direct danger approaches members of "J-RAP". I absolutely need to play this myself. 12. Dokidoki Princess どきどきPrincess [011019] Cronus Main character is an aspiring swordsman. One day he gets to help a girl while practicing in the mountains, and since that time girl starts to visit him. At first protagonist is irritated by such bother, but with time understands that desire to protect important people around him is his true strength. Comedy. Five heroines, quite an orthodox development. At least this time it's really pure love with just two H events per heroine, very unlike previous works of Cronus. Heroines lack development and aren't memorable. 13. Houkago no Maid 放課後のメイド [011019] For Protagonist becomes the manager of the newly created after-school "Maid Training Club". First half is choosing who to talk to, and second half is individual routes - in the latter part any answers other that correct ones result in bad end. H content is higher than average, 2-3 scenes per heroine. Quite a boring maid fetish work. 14. Inner Palace ~Shiroki Koukyuu~ インナーパレス~白き後宮~ [011019] Noa Stagnating kingdom of Punea is succeeded by emperor Tokina. New emperor has many wives who gave birth to six sons. Main character is the sixth son Leon. He's the last in the line of succession, so needs to execute enormous efforts to ever wear the crown. A SIM game to train yourself in order to be able to choose a correct wife. There are eight heroines, and since polygamy is wide-spread in the country, it gets H intensive and falls into harem state. 15. Pretty Monsters プリティーモンスターズ [011019] Nampurrow After collapse of an anti-matter conversion furnace 400 years ago, science-based civilization was almost completely annihilated. However, humanity was able to regain former prosperity by domesticating and utilizing flying Primon as means of transport. Fuami is a healthy girl who aims to ride Primon. For that she sets on a journey of practice. It's a suguroku game to gather monsters, but game is actually a nukige despite the neutral synopsis, and with pretty dark H events. Insult scenes show up spontaneously. 16. Tsukikagerou 月陽炎 [011019] Studio Miris 1 Taishō era. The interval between Meiji and Shōwa. A season where yellow and red petals swoop down from the trees. A young man comes down from the Imperial city, clinging to a large trunk, faintly smiling at the sight of the streets, a suitable young man indeed. Just as told by his father, he reached to this town to help for an autumn festival. Walking down the streets brings a surge of nostalgia. Encounter with a girl. Two girls. As days drift by, the young man soon links with one of the girls. Not a love by chance. It was a fated love. Was it the reason this young man was made to come to this town? There is an English review. 17. Candy Stripe ~Minarai Tenshi~ Candy Stripe ~みならい 天使~ [011025] Sega Set on a hospital, where the protagonist is a doctor and interacts with the nurses there. What does doctor do with nurses? Oh, he interacts. That's a very bold resolution from Sega. Honestly speaking, it would be too easy to make just a fun game. Sega introduced lots of elements like skills and background knowledge to make this game a real SIM. GJ, Sega. 18. Beside ~Shiawase wa Katawara ni~ Beside~幸せはかたわらに~ [011026] DreamSoft When I was young, I fell in love. I loved her from a very early age, and she was like a big sister to me. Her mother died when she was little, and her father was always working. But, she went to college, and had to move. I confessed my feelings to her, but the train's noise took her answer away with the wind. A few years later, I went to university, and forgot the events that happened then. I had trouble finding a job, and my brother got married and moved to Hawaii, so I decided to go back to my parents' house. However, there was something I didn't expect... To meet with her again, under the same sky, while she smiled as always. Orthodox love comedy. There are six heroines, but story stays the same in each route. One playthrough is just 2-3 hours. Enjoyable work for those who like the genre. 19. Coda -Toge- Coda-棘- [011026] Over 1 Our hero, Manabu Kusaka, lost his love years ago in an accident. The accident happened right after she broke up with him. Manabu thought it was his fault that she died, so he tries to kill him self, but fails. Having no other choice, he leaves home. On the anniversary of her death, Manabu receives a letter. His heart jumps as he finds out who sent the letter. The letter is from his lost love. It talks about how tired she is with love, her emotions, and her friends. After reading the letter, our hero goes to the school's garden to bury the letter under a tree; this was not a good idea. . . Long ago, this tree was used in sacrifices. Our hero and his friends are now chosen as the next "sacrifices." They get warped into a different dimension. What awaits them? Will they ever be able to return? This story has two scenario routes, which include, "A Happy Story" and "The Worst Story." Also, depending on your character, there are many different scenarios to experience. This brand is actually reincarnation of Rock Climber, so it should be clear that psychological insult is the focus of the game. And I'm not discussing shades of nukige. 20. Kekkai ~Aru Rinshou Shinrishi no Kiroku Yori~ 結界~ある臨床心理士の記録より~ [011026] Simple Plan Kyoko was found at the scene of a brutal murder by chief inspector Kaoru. Due to the shock of the incident, Kyoko has lost her memory. Kaoru has asked Junichi, a suave psychiatrist, to help cure Kyoko, only to find out that she has multiple personalites. Suspense adventure with erotic tilt. Multiple personalities of the heroine is the main feature of the work. Story has no twist and text level is low. 21. Low Devil! ローデビル! [011026] Black Light Main character starts to have special feelings for his childhood friend, but it seems to be an impossible dream. One day a devil girl appears before him. She is looking for a certain stone and persuades protagonist to help her. There are 10 chapters with distribution of favorability and creating strengthening medicine at the end of each chapter. In the end everything comes down just to H. 22. Mahiru ni Odoru Hanzaisha 真昼に踊る犯罪者 [011026] SofthouseChara When you need "Anything" done, you can turn on our protagonist and his three companions. "Anything" goes from babysitting to investigation of extramarital affairs, even criminal acts such as kidnapping or robbery. Whatever it is, it will be done, as long as there's enough compensation. Of course there's a downside to this business. Everywhere you look, danger lurks in every corner. While he didn't want to see it, the protagonist saw the dark side of a corporate giant. And thus begins our protagonist's fight... SofthouseChara youth is full of weird strategy games. Not my story. 23. Pretty Crisis 2nd [011026] Inspire Princess of the neighboring country Olivese arrives to the country where knight Rudel leaves. He needs to collect a certain amount of money to be able to send her back. Game is just from a totally different genre from first Pretty Crisis. It's now an economic SIM which angers auditory a lot. 24. Prime Girl プライムガール [011026] TRIFACT Memories of prime everyone has in heart. I like to share the pain and sorrow with you. Game from creators of Refrain Love which results in SIM elements abuse, wide use of animation and very generic story. The style and lip sync are uncommon for adult games. Heroines are realistic and only with dark hair. Game is praised for relaxing adult atmosphere. 25. Sonic Princess ソニック・プリンセス [011026] Software House Parsley 1 During nighttime, the terrain of the Earth is susceptible to inexplicable changes. Human beings called these strange occurrences the Phantom Phenomenon. Soon, with the power of technology and magic, they learned that threat is lurking in the depths of our planet. The underground city Ge-Pang was built to avert it. One day, a SOS alarm sounds in the city. Leila Reifido, who possesses the magical power of levitation as well as technological skills, sets out to counter an unprecedented robotic assault. There is very little from visual novel in here. 26. Working Days わーきんぐDAYS [011026] Studio e.go! Main character discovers that his body is transparent one day. In order to return his normal body he consults different offices and takes various bodyguard, spy and security jobs. There are 16 chapters with different bizarre stories, including ghost and alien stories. There are four couples and it's possible to zap between them to progress simultaneously. Development is quite monotonous. There are heroines with different unusual traits. BLOCKED 1. Chirol ~Mogareta Tsubasa~ CHIROL~もがれた翼~ [011005] Error Main character is a rich bonbon who gets a job as a store manager at a family restaurant. One day he notices deputy manager stealing some money and succumbs her to sexual slavery. Then he directs his poison to part-time workers. Nukige 2.

Sayaka lost her parents when she was little, and Shin's parents took her in. His parents have to leave because of their jobs, so Shin and Sayaka are finally left to themselves. Sayaka teaches at the school where Shin attends. To Shin, she is a girlfriend, a sister, a mother, and also a teacher. Sayaka wonders if she should openly express her feelings to him under such circumstances. However, without his parents around, Shin experiences a new and exciting life with Sayaka.

Birdie ~Bokura no Ren'ai Shinrigaku~ birdie~ぼくらの恋愛心理学~ [011026] Ein When the dance unit "Birdie" debuted three years ago, it became an instant success in the Japanese idol industry. With the bright and friendly Kazuya Nakajoh, the nihilistic Takashi Kanzawa, and the calm and intellectual You Onozuka, "Birdie" was quick to rise in popularity. The three were recruited through audition with an agency that produces idol groups, led by a shrewed female president who sees to the development of her agency's talents by keeping them busy in a maelstrom of multimedia: song and dance performances, modeling, work in the "CM" magazine, hosting a variety quiz show, and drama performances, among others. The activity has certainly kept "Birdie" at the top of the idol entertainment world, and recently, You has attracted attention from the theatrical industry, as well. "Birdie" is run by three managers that see to its success: Matoba, a veteran manager who is the head manager of the group, Masato, who works as producer, coordinator, and negotiator, and Sakagami, their assistant. Always looking for ways to keep the group on the leading edge, Masato arranges for a famous ballet dancer from New York, Tsubaki Kyouichi, to join the team as their new choreographer, a change which will result not only in changes for "Birdie," but also for the individuals in the unit as they become involved in Kyouichi's bad influences.

  13. Foreword: Setting is quite cyberpunk'ish, so I expected an enjoyable read. Was I too optimistic? Title: Rege ~Saisei no Ubugoe~ Developer: Sarang Date: 2001-09-28 VNDB link:https://vndb.org/v15317 Youtube walkthrough:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8QF89IDqkM Synopsis: Rosu is a sleepless city where many kinds of people gather seeking fame and fortune. Even though the city is losing its main industry, it's still bustling. It is rumored that the city makes its money by drug trafficking as well as from a secret national arms fund. Kyoichi Koga establishes a private police station in Rosu. He used to be a policeman, but he became a private detective after being dismissed from the police force. One day, Kyoichi receives an e-mail, insinuating that a bloody event will occur. He begins research on a 23-year old tragedy without knowing that it is the beginning of the present disappearances throughout the city. Structure: 3 days Length: 11 hours. Game type: Detective investigation in a decadent city Difficulty: Not quite obvious since you need to choose locations, and it's easy to miss event if wrong one chosen Character Design rating: 1/10 Protagonist rating: 1/10 Story rating: 1/10 Game quality: 1/10 Overall rating: 1/10 Again, can't really write a formal review here. From the start I was kind of worried about NSFW cover and "practicing magician" as one of heroines. What's a magician doing in a cyberpunk'ish setting? But reality is much worse - main heroine is magician. Her teacher is magician. Main enemies are magicians. Main battle is battle between mages! What's even going on here? But focus on magic is not even the worst thing to happen here. First of all - I completed only Kaoru route, but absolutely could not go forth from here, game is absolutely irreparable at that point. Common route takes 1.5 hours and heroines routes only take 30 minutes. During common part we just get to choose locations about 10 times and stumble upon some girls on the streets. On the day 2 it's H scene! Out of the blue! Protagonist was just walking the girl he saw for the second time in life home! How did they get sitting on the bed? Why heroine just started some stupid imaginary drama with weeping? That looked so stupid that I saw only disgust in it. So what do we get as a result? Super-short non-existing story, super-short heroines routes. Forced ending with very questionable action. Epilogue that takes less than a minute. Faceless and thin protagonist. Absolutely non-sympathetic and non-developed heroines. Senseless conflict and drama overall. Zero satisfaction as a result. I try to find at least something to raise my evaluation, and fail at that. It's a shameful game, so it only deserves equally shameful review.
  14. Why do you play Visual Novels?

    Visual novel = anime + novel for me, and theoretically it's the best medium to provide glorious long stories. I'm mostly fascinated with visual novels because of the amount of efforts the Japanese put into those. I compare the number of Western games with the number of Japanese Visual Novels over the same periods of times, and get absolutely shocked by the results of just one nation in just a single genre. And that goes even for early 80s - VNDB has only a small portion of Japanese visual novels from 80s. I'm absolutely assured in Japanese cultural supremacy in the last two decades. Anime, manga and dorama are too short to my liking and are too well covered, while visual novels offer thousands of worlds for tens of hours of time each, and remain in obscurity for all this time. Every big anime resource like MAL does not want to get involved with visual novels just because they aren't popular enough. Well, that's one thing that can change.
  15. Eve: The Fatal Attraction has no rivals this month. Among other masterpieces I'll call Memories Off 2nd. I'll be reviewing Rije ~Saisei no Ubugoe~. 1. Itsuka no Sora いつかの空 [010907] Sweet Basil 1 Our hero is a sophomore college student living by himself. He has a childhood friend that is a girl, but he doesn't have a real girlfriend. His hope of finding someone special is fading away when his part time job eats up his time. Then he meets Eri, who happens to have lost her memory. The encounter with Eri leads our hero towards his destiny and forces him to search for his true identity... System and town real time change impress, but at the expense of game content. Each of seven heroines has only 4-5 events resulting in short individual routes. Voice actors recompensate for that only partially. 2. Love Hina Advance ~Shukufuku no Kane wa Naru kana~ ラブひなアドバンス 祝福の鐘はなるかな [010907] Marvelous Interactive 1 2 In this game, you take the role of Urashima Keitaro, who’s been rejected from entering Tokyo University for the second year running making him, what the Japanese call, a ronin. To make things worse, his parents have kicked him out of his house. Fortunately, his Grandmother owns the nearby inn and Keitaro thought this would be the perfect place to live and work as the landlord. Or so he thought. He finds out that the building is no longer an inn and is in fact a girls’ dorm making him the only guy around! Most guys would kill to live with six cute girls, but if Keitaro’s not careful, this job will kill him… There are English reviews. 3. Furimuite Cool Eye's 振り向いてCOOL Eye’S [010914] Parade School manga research club is in pinch! It only has three members and will have to disband unless two more members are found within a month. Main character should also recruit only among the girls in order not to repeat last year's mistake when a lot of people had to quit the club due to romantic problems. Is it possible to save the club? Unfortunately, scenario is thin, and it's more like fast confession, then H to imbue desire to participate in the club activities. Graphics are beautiful. 4. Ichigo-Da いちご打 [010914] Witch 1 Cafe Milkyway plans to have an event with dessert dishes called, "Strawberry Festival." Remi Tojo designs the special costumes for this event. However, the costumes she designed are very strange, and her co-worker, Sakuya, makes fun of her and her costumes. To get revenge, Remi orders Sakuya to play an evil character called "Ichigon." The Ichigon costume is made of an artificial strawberry, and Remi will eat up the costume every time Sakuya disobeys her orders. This is a story of fighting between Remi, who is nuts about strawberries, and the other Milkyway workers, who hate her strange costumes and try to stop Remi from taking all the strawberries. In the end everything gets to typing strip battle. 5. Prism Sound プリズムサウンド [010914] Airyu Main character tried to gather friends for a band to make "shining sound" together. That dream was forgotten, but now a year later he repeats that attempt. There are very few choices. Unique character design is the main appeal point. Scenario is just right in order not to get bored, but it's mostly thanks to support cast and not the heroines. 6. Review of Brind Summer Vacation レビューオフ Brind Summer Vacation [010914] Sight Main character is an upcoming manga writer with one magical girl story to receive anime adaptation. He organizes a party to meet offline with the fans. Thirteen people have gathered, but even though nicknames are known, noone knows each others faces. What will come out of this party? It's a pure love story about first experience, so with little H and quite a boring overall. There are as many as 12 heroines. Lots of bugs and graphical glitches even with patch applied. 7. Ame Yadori 雨やどり [010918] E.G.O. Time starts to flow very fast with every day being busy and without a moment to spare. Main character sees a girl stilling alone in the rain and lends her a hand. Girl's name is Mio. This is a heartwarming story about three girls with cat ears (plus two normal heroines), but the quantity and darkness of H scenes easily writes this game into nukige department. First five days are given for common route and last five days for heroine route. Quite a specialized work trying to appeal to different players. 8. Prism Palette プリズムパレット [010920] Broccoli A love adventure simulator that follows the adventures of the main character Masaki Shirai while he lives a peaceful school life surrounded by beautiful classmates. A normal school SIM with everyday schedule and stuff. 9. Igougata Kyokuchi Geigeki Tenshi Nanako ~Kaku Tatakaeri, Otome-tachi~ イ号型局地迎撃天使NANAKO~かく戦えり、乙女達~ [010921] Ape & Frog Humans have built a huge defensive city 3000 meters underground to save themselves from mysterious "vector" enemies. However, as resources get exhausted in constant battles, humankind throws last funds into new type of weapon IMA-01 Nanako. This weapon is given to main character as the last hope for survival. RPG with heroines looking like cosplayers. Each day is divided into four sections to perform commands. And there is also H training of girls ... how else would they learn new magic and skills? 10. Little Monica Monogatari リトルモニカ物語 [010921] Rune The town of Little Monica is famous for its vast culture of arts, especially music. Will is an orphan who used to live with his three friends in Little Monica, however he has long since moved out of the town. Many years later, Will decides to go back to the town to see his three friends: Celia, Mei, and Tina. Upon arrival, Will is surprised to discover that Little Monica is no longer the very cultural city it used to be. Instead, no music is allowed in the city... H event triggers the very first day and pretty much every day after that, so it's a nukige under innocent cover. Stupid incidents happen to the sisters like UFO and the like making up for a comedy. In the end it's nothing but an ero-tilt moege. 11. Eve: The Fatal Attraction EVE: The Fatal Attraction [010927] C's Ware 1 "Eve: The Fatal Attraction" is a chapter in EVE series, and is based on the hentai PC game Adam: The Double Factor. Its scenario was expanded in this game up to the point of being a sequel to "Adam". It adds many Eve: Burst Error and Eve: The Lost One references, lots of new events, 2 more days and proper ending to the game. You control the two main heroes of the game, the young careless detective Kojiroh and the sexy red-haired super-spy Marina. The events of the game are connected to their previous investigation (in Eve Burst Error). Kojiroh's ex-girlfriend and colleague, Yayoi Katsuragi, receives a case: somebody is threatening the life of two young girls, Mika and Miki, the daughters of the owner of the powerful Andou Corporation. Naturally, Yayoi needs Kojiroh's help, and here the investigation truly begins! Like in other Eve games, you control two characters in two "scenarios", and sometimes the cooperation between them is necessary. The game utilizes the same "Touchable View" that was implemented in "Adam": you interact with the environment and with the characters not by selecting menu options, but by moving the cursor around and clicking on objects, like in Western point-and-click adventures. I already reviewed the game earlier. 12. Memories Off 2nd [010927] KID 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 The protagonist is a 17-year-old student, Ken Inami, a soccer loving dude who aspires to go to film school. His girlfriend Hotaru Shirakawa also has high aspirations; having played piano ever since she was a child, she aims to go to music school. Ken and Hotaru have been dating for a spell and are at a rocky juncture in their relationship. This is where the game gets interesting. You can either make decisions to salvage Ken's relationship with Hotaru or chase after another girl. There are English reviews. 13. Z.O.E. 2173 Testament ゾーン オブ エンダーズ 2173 テスタメント [010927] Konami 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 The story is set within the Zone of the Enders universe. It is 2173 and humankind, in the search for a valuable resource called Metatron, has expanded its reaches to Mars and the moons of Jupiter, and full colonies have been established. However, Earth keeps a tight reign over the colonials, known by the derogatory term "Enders", and discrimination is commonplace. Food supplies are short, movement of citizens is controlled, and many Mars inhabitants have tried to rise up against Earth, but to little avail. The game follows the story of a 17-year old boy named Cage Midwell, a worker upon the interplanetary express ship "Bonaparte III" with his close friend (and idol) Ares Enduwa. However, on a routine journey, Cage spots a woman creeping into the cargo holds, and follows her. As he does this, the ship is attacked by a powerful black Orbital Frame. Cage and the girl, who introduces herself as Myona Alderan, climb into a mysterious LEV held within the ship and escape, eventually crash-landing on Mars. They are quickly caught and are accused of being the ones responsible for the crash. On top of this, Myona has completely lost her memory. However, shortly after their imprisonment, they are freed by an "Anti-Terrestrial League" leader called Deckson Geyse. His faction, BIS (Born In Space), quickly come and rescue them, and Cage finds himself caught up in the escalating conflict between Earth and Mars. There are English reviews. 14. Ashita mo Kitto Hare 明日もきっと晴れ♪ [010928] Forte Main character goes to school in a small seaside town. Swimming, sunbathing, culture festival... there are many events to enjoy in summer. Tomorrow will definitely be sunny. Almost zero difficulty, just raising favorability is enough. Genre is comedy. Six heroines overall with short routes and almost no H events. But bonus 7th scenario is unexpectedly good. 15. Crescendo ~Eien Dato Omotte Ita Ano Koro~ Crescendo ~永遠だと思っていたあの頃~ [010928] D.O. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 It's five days before graduation, and Sasaki Ryou is in school, making up the hours needed to graduate with the other members of his class. For Ryou, it's a quiet time to sit and reflect on the past year and all that has happened. As he thinks back on the past year, he remembers all his friends ... Kaho, who dragged him into the literary arts club against his will. Kaho's strange friend Kyouko, who was secretly in love with him. The oddly antisocial Yuka, so cheerful and yet secretly ashamed of something. His step-sister Ayame, who took such good care of him after their parents died. And the sexy school nurse Kaori, who always had a healing word for him. Every day held real experiences leaving real memories ... days he thought would last forever. Now the day of graduation draws near, and Ryou knows that he must prepare himself to make a choice. There are English reviews. 16. Kanojo no Negau Koto. Boku no Omou Koto 彼女の願うこと。ぼくの思うこと。 [010928] Project-μ 1 Luke lost the vision of his left eye as a child. Although he can't see with that eye, he has the ability to read people's minds. Because of this power, he stays away from society; he gets emotionally disturbed when he reads people's minds. One day however, a young boy named Rickie is reflected in his eye. Rickie is a lost soul wondering around. One day, he meets a girl carrying a black cat. This girl's name is Mikage, and she changes his life. Luke also happens to meet a girl named Mitsuki. He starts to see the world more openly. Luke and Rickie. . . Two boys from parallel dimensions, who eventually merge into one. This is an AVG game using two characters as a single identity. On Rickie's side, there are other characters besides Mikage. You'll find Keri, the girl who looks like Mikage but has a completely different personality, and the mysterious girl, Tory. The new system in this game is called the, "S-Cube system." It's an evolution of digital comics, and it is a completely new system. This is a "new type" of game, not only because of the system, but also because you're using two characters as one identity. If you're looking for something new, this is the game for you! Best thing in the game is theater-imitating ever-changing perspective. Protagonist is divided and main aim of the game is searching for oneself. Game also features many comedy elements even though individual stories are quite dark. An experimental work for those unsatisfied with the state of the industry. 17. Koumaroku 降魔録 [010928] Tama-Soft Legendary spiritual festival "Sekairoko Peak" gathered and sealed a lot of demons in one place. Due to an ancient curse various monster incidents started to occur in the vicinity. Thanks to existence of "demonist" monks curse never spread outside its initial location. Main character is one of demonists who uses his skills to defeat demons. Two women always accompany him in his travels. Any day demon seal may break, and such demon hunters are the only hope of the world. There are only two heroines to capture, but each has lots and lots of H scene patters, including tentacles. The number of endings is four. The actual atmosphere and contents of the game are inspirational and really about demon fighting. Music is great here. It's a chunige, and I like it despite the ero-tilt. 18. Love Negotiator ラブ・ネゴシエイター [010928] Liar-soft AD 2030, place is new capital built at Tokyo Bay. Main character is a romance negotiator who helps shy boys by winning negotiation battles with girls persuading them to pursue romance relations. But one day he gets involved in a huge conspiracy with number of cases piled up and intertwined. It's basically a bakage with negotiation battles. Battles usually have three variants of phrases with some being great choices and some poor ones. Poor choices lead to insult endings, great choices to pure love ones. Composition reminds TV dorama with 7 episodes each featuring a short story. Enjoyable game for bakage enthusiasts. 19. Miracle Twins: Koi no Mahou o Anata ni みらくるツインズ 恋の魔法を貴方に [010928] Future A town engulfed in evil atmosphere. But in the mids of it is a guardian angel girl who protects the town. She is a usual girl who found a magical item to turn into a warrior of justice. For that reason she is targeted by evil forces. Together with main character and another girl able for transformation they fight for the peace of this town. A comedy with crisp H scenes. Battles are made in janken type - attack, defense, magic. There are seven chapters, but overall operation is heavy. First six chapters are complimentary comedies, and seventh is suddenly serious development. Animation is used wisely. 20. Rije ~Saisei no Ubugoe~ リジェ ~再生の産声~ [010928] Sarang 1 Rosu is a sleepless city where many kinds of people gather seeking fame and fortune. Even though the city is losing its main industry, it's still bustling. It is rumored that the city makes its money by drug trafficking as well as from a secret national arms fund. Kyoichi Koga establishes a private police station in Rosu. He used to be a policeman, but he became a private detective after being dismissed from the police force. One day, Kyoichi receives an e-mail, insinuating that a bloody event will occur. He begins research on a 23-year old tragedy without knowing that it is the beginning of the present disappearances throughout the city. You'll be able to play with four beautiful girls: 'Kaoru,' the daughter of Kyoichi's boss, 'Reika,' an executive member of a religious group, 'Maki,' a practicing magician, and 'Chihiro,' a medical student. Try to clear all the girls by going through various situations, such as pure love, rape, gang rape, and so on! This game has multiple endings. You'll be able to play with another character after clearing the first character. The story has an 'investigation part' and a 'truth part.' In the 'investigation part,' you'll go to many places and talk with many people. You have to be careful with your time because certain events happen at a certain time. As a result of the 'investigation part,' the 'truth part' will appear. Your actions in the first part will directly affect the ending! What tragedy occurred 23 years ago? Will Kyoichi be able to solve the disappearances? A hard-boiled detective adventure, but with a definite erotic tilt. Somehow it becomes a general thing that hard boiled adventures have to deal with prostitutes and insults which in the end devaluates the story and the genre as a whole. On the positive side game features film technique of zooming and scrolling which also adds up to decadent world atmosphere. 21. V.G. Re-birth [010928] Giga A visual novel game in which the player plays the part of a reporter working on a story about the V.G. competition. The game also introduces the new character Sakuragi Hiyori. Depending on the choices the player makes, he/she will be paired with Yuka, Tamao or Reimi. V.G. Rebirth Dash: An update to V.G. Rebirth which includes nearly every other non-boss character (Yuuki Ayako is absent as she is a lesbian) as an option to pair with the player. It also introduces the new character Hatano Keiko. For that advances fighting woman theme for sex appeal. It's more like a fan story - to be able to talk to heroines from previous haves. Scenario is very short and is over upon tournament win. 22. Odeon [010929] BOKU One day a girl starts to awaken to her own fate. Even if that fate may be too harsh for that frail body of hers... A woman singing in the Roman-era Odeon (circular concert hall). A secret is now hidden under the remnants of that Odeon that has been exposed to the harsh weather all this time. A mysterious human race that has come to Earth from somewhere else. Can that girl be a reincarnation of the songstress Mirei? In the flow of time an ancient phantasm nobody remembers reoccurs again. Where is humanity guided to? Past and present intersect here... Game resembling Experiments Lain in concept, design and atmosphere. There are many short stories (memories) in each chapter, and player accesses them in random order. But complex composition and darker themes make game difficult to read. Another experiment that can be treated in both favorable and bashing way. BLOCKED 1. MIU [010905] DIGICLA 1 The story of the girl singing inside a birdcage, and the young man who was captivated by her song. With only 7 days left till the man faces his ‘end’, will they reach happiness and salvation…? Doujin 2. Nangoku Aventure 南国あばんちゅ~る [010907] Trabulance 1 You are, Kyosuke Mita.

You can choose between these two contrasting characters to interact with the various individual spirits in this raising simulation game. Man and woman, two girls, and two guys combinations are possible, but there are no love developments, to the end it stays a game about friendship. Otome 9. Cushion Cushion~クッション~ [010914] Seiju Main character lives together with Yuki, but such situation starts to annoy. Love is what's desired... Boys Love 10. Hai Kamuri Hime no Yuuutsu 灰被り姫の憂鬱 [010914] MBS Truth 1 There is a prestigious ceremony/festival that comes once a year where a young woman is chosen to be the “Princess” of the event.
