  1. Secret Agent ~Kishi Gakuen no Shinobi Naru Mono~ is the only game deserving attention in May for me. 1. Kirakira Monstars キラキラモンスターズ [200528] White Powder Four monster girls invited main character to a summer resort with the aim to shoot TV documentary "Kirakira Monsters". The comedy about communal life begins here! Partial release 2. KukkoroDays くっころでいず [200514] iMel Inc. 1 The main character's mundane daily life is turned upside down when a certain woman appears in his life. One day, a magic circle suddenly appe
  2. No-o-o. Micchi stopped updating blog and lots of releases ended up without translated description, as expected. With trilogy at its end, can finally nominate Silverio Ragnarok for this month and most probably for this year. Looks like another series reached conclusion, so can now call 9 -Nine- Yukiiro Yukihana Yukinoato a masterpiece. 1. Bokuhime Project ボク姫PROJECT [200423] Wizard Soft 1 Protagonist Minato Ikusa's sister Marika has fallen into a coma following an incident at the Yuriai Private Academy for refined young ladies, so he infiltrates the school by disguising h
  3. Kami-sama no You na Kimi e is the only worthy game in March. Micchi supports that and also Ore no Sugata ga Toumei ni , plus Icing -love coating- . 1. Kami-sama no You na Kimi e 神様のような君へ [200327] CUBE 1 2 Our time together, now, Continues onward, towards tomorrow. Shimae Kaito, a young man gifted with a talent for hacking. Despite being merely a student, Kaito broke through the most advanced security system and gained administrative privileges to the C-AI (Central AI) that governs countless AI. In this day and age, the majority of the infrastructure
  4. Marco to Ginga Ryuu is the only bearable title this month. Micchi does not mind Full Kiss S , Oshi no Love Yori Koi no Love and Hajikano ~Kimi ga Iru Heya~ 1. Death End Re;Quest 2 デス エンド リクエスト 2 [200213] Compile Heart 1 2 After killing her abusive father and being decided that it was in self defense, Mai a young gloomy girl is sent to a women dormitory called “Wardsworth” in the city of Liz Shoala. There she hopes to find her lost sister and her reason to live Sanae. But soon her hopes are crushed by reality, not only does she not find her but also it seems that s
  5. A month from now is is more realistic as during first month after release games usually get the bulk of spotlight. I wanted to review all the best games from where I stopped in 2009 or so, but prefer offline DeepL with Sugoi now, and can only do it on main pc that is busy all the time, so either I screen at nights or at very rare pauses between different RPGs. So far looks like very slow pace. At the same time there aren't that many best games that I want to go through, maybe 30 or so, and each new year adds only a few titles to my backlog.
  6. If I choose between indi touching crap, a lolicon moege, a twisted nukige , another mimikko moege and a single heroine nukige, what would entail the least cringe... there aren't good choices here, so I clench my teeth and call Kamisama no Shippo ~Etogami-sama tachi no Ongaeshi~ VN of the Month. What a wicked start of the year... Micchi does not mind this choice and also suggests Amairo Chocolata and a fandisc 1. Prison Princess プリズンプリンセス [200130] qureate 1 2 The continent of Maygard. The peace and prosperity brought about by the two kingdoms of “Aria Zaza” and “Z
  7. 2019 hit the new bottom in many aspects and marked the beginning of COVID era, so there was a noticeable loss in attention for visual novels by the end of it. I counted only 13 masterpieces, could not even get 100 openings in Visual Novel Openings 2019 . Without a clear favorite I'll call Realive VN of the Year . My list of masterpieces in 2019: AI: The Somnium Files Kanzume Shoujo no Shuumatsu Sekai Kimagure Temptation Kokorone=Pendulum! Missing-X-Link ~Ten no Yurikago, Togi no Hana~ Music
  8. Musicus! is the only game I can point out. Micchi lists all of Aikotoba , Cafe Stella to Shinigami no Chou , Animal☆Panic and Suzukuri Karin-chan 1. Shin Sakura Taisen 新サクラ大戦 [191212] Sega 1 The stage is set in a steampunk version of 1940s Imperial Tokyo. Only a short while ago, a cataclysmic event destroyed the Imperial Combat Revue of Tokyo, the capital's global defense force stationed at the Imperial Theater. Now home to the Flower Division, an inept rookie squad who also strives to impart hope on the citizenry with their theatrical talents, the theater
  9. An average chunige Shiraha Kirameku Koi Shirabe still wins over an average charage for me. Micchi likes all of Docchi no i ga Suki desu ka , ChuSingura46+1 Wacchi to Onii-chan no Raburabu Nagaya Seikatsu and some fandisc. 1. Yuusha to Odore! ~Bocchi no Ore ga Isekai Shoukan Sarete Bishoujo-tachi to Gakuen Saikyou Party o Kumimashita~ 勇者と踊れ!  ~ぼっちの俺が異世界召喚されて美少女たちと学園最強パーティを組みました~ [191129] catwalk 1 Kyou’s adoptive parents passed away suddenly in an accident, leaving him at a loss at what to do. Then he was summoned to a parallel world, where he was greeted by the person wh
  10. Gratz on hitting the new bottom with just three releases. Raillore no Ryakudatsusha is the only notable one. Micchi notes Ai Kiss and two releases with shifted dates. 1. Ai Kiss アイキス [191025] Giga The protagonist, Ikenaga Ren returns after several years away from his hometown, returns to enroll in the Private Arimori Academy, an art school. On the first day of school, he unexpectedly reunites with the two of his childhood friends with whom he used to paint illustrations in the past, twin Saegusa sisters Hinata and Ayame. While surprised and confused by how they ha
  11. Kimagure Temptation is good enough to be VN of the Month , or it may easily be AI: The Somnium Files if you can stand investigation games. Micchi also gives a chance to Cross Concerto and Study § Steady 1. Cross Concerto クロスコンチェルト [190901] クロスコンチェルト Applique 1 It was spring, the season of new beginnings. Satoru finally broke free from the closed remote village where he had been held captive as an unwanted child, and entered the same school that his late mother attended. However, he was surprised to find his twin sister Ruri a
  12. Just hid common route and individual route elements under spoiler. The problem is not so much that game's not for everyone, but because it was issued by light which was exactly brand for everyone. Long-standing fans like me would probably feel betrayed like never before even after some really low quality works seen in the past. This game marks the hugest dent in company's reputation.
  13. I read Sora no Baroque blindly just because I could not believe light company would release something really terrible. Somehow, I had high hopes for it despite all the worrying signs. Not going to be a coherent review, just thoughts. Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwGwDxf37gEmJK5veUbZxoR5sjPFd2QCO I don't want to rate Sora no Baroque. The reason is that it's just not the genre I can rate like I can't rate nukige or loliconge. I don't want to have anything in common with such genres let alone compare them with normal games. It's beneath the level of de
  14. You know August... my conspiracy theory is that Micchi stopped doing monthly overviews just to skip doing August 2020. Jokes aside, anything that is not a doujin or a straight up nukige is automatically the winner in August. And that anything is Wakaba-iro no Quartet . Micchi adds Wanko no Yomeiri and another straight up lolicon nukige. 1. NinNinDays [190808 ] iMel Inc. 1 Known only as "Ninja", these mysterious mercenaries have worked in the shadows of history from ages past. Dealing in espionage, secrect plots and
  15. If we count only finished products, Ren'ai, Karichaimashita and maybe Kokorone=Pendulum! with the right mood take the upper hand. Micchi is also interested in Ryuusei World Actor and Study§Steady 1. Lost:Smile: Memories + Promises [190708] LIFE0 1 Six Love, One Truth Hoshimijima— A beautiful island of stars and sea located at the southern end of Japan. The island where my father was born and raised. I was taken here when I was a little, but I don't remem
  16. Tasogare no Folclore is the only masterpiece in June. Micchi also finds Tsuki no Kanata de Aimashou , Iegami Nyoubou ~Koisuru Inaba wa Kinpatsu Usagi~ and some loliconge fandisc worthy of notice. 1. Yumeutsutsu Re:Master 夢現Re:Master [190613] Kogado Studio 1 2 Dreams and Reality Re:Master is a bubbly-cute girls love adventure game about game developers. Our last two games in the Nurse Love Addiction series focused on professional life with nurses and nursing students at a hospital. This game continues that focus, putting the spotlight
  17. Tamayura Mirai is the only suitable title for me, although Micchi has all the right to also appreciate D.C.4 ~Da Capo 4~ , Girls Book Maker and Renran Spirichu . 1. Aikano ~Yukizora no Triangle~ アイカノ ~雪空のトライアングル~ [190531] Prekano The former track and field club member Shun attended school with his childhood friend Shizuri and close friend Koharu. However, they had just one more year together before they graduate and possibly go their separate ways. Both girls had feelings for him and decided to confess to him on Valentine’s
  18. Kanzume Shoujo no Shuumatsu Sekai and Missing-X-Link ~Ten no Yurikago, Togi no Hana~ are both strong titles from this fruitful April. Micchi can't have enough of 9-nine- Haruiro Harukoi Harunokaze , Koioto Se Piace and Tonari ni Kanojo no Iru Shiawase ~Summer Surprise~ 1. Eve: Rebirth Terror [190425] El Dia Story Summary Peaceful days have returned. It’s been one year since the Burst Error case, and the dreadful incident is slowly starting to fade away from memories. Kojiroh Amagi and Marina Houjou currently spend their days
  19. Realive is the only masterpiece I can vouch for. Micchi adds Aonatsu Line and pieces/Wataridori no Somnium to the list of interest. 1. LoveR LoveR(ラヴアール)[190314] Kadokawa Games 1 Romance. Record. A new love begins… The summer of your second year of high school. You happen to meet six girls. And then… love. A future of romance? The school festival will take place in two months. And there, the confession…
  20. I'll only mention Swallowtail -Ano Hi, Ao o Koete- as a worthy game for me. Micchi goes all out with Evenicle 2 , Happiness! 2 Sakura Celebration , SPIRAL!! , Yume to Iro de Dekiteiru and even Aibeya 1. Aibeya アイベヤ [190222] Azarashi Soft “Starting from tomorrow, you’ll be staying at Aki’s place” After Kouta’s mother suddenly said that, he ended up living with his childhood friend Aki. Being together with her all the time, he developed some feelings for her. However, he did not know if it was ‘love’. “Then, h
  21. Sorceress*Alive! ~the World's End Fallen Star~ and Sakura, Moyu. -As the Night's, Reincarnation- are the only masterpieces. Micchi also does not mind Sugar*Style , love clear and a delayed title. 1. NekoMiko ねこみこ [190124] iMel Inc. 1 2 Nekofuku Shrine is a small shrine located in a corner of Akihabara. It is dedicated to 2 cats that are said to bring in good fortune and expel any misfortune. The legend goes that 2 cats came to help the revival of the town after a huge fire burnt it down a long time ago. Although the ancient
  22. Rather modest year, overall. There are still as many as 17 masterpieces, but number of games has decreased significantly, and I barely got 100 openings in Visual Novel Openings 2018 . Without a strong chunige title I'll opt out for the strongest mystery title as VN of the Year, and that's Butterfly Seeker . My list of masterpieces in 2018: AI Love: Koisuru Otome wa Kikaijikake Butterfly Seeker Curio Dealer Haru to Yuki, Karigurashi Ren'ai Kieta Sekai to Tsuki to Shoujo -The World was
  23. Kotonoha Maichiru Natsu no Koe with all its flaws is still the only candidate worthy of mention . Micchi gives a chance to other charage of the month - Sora ni Kizanda Parallelogram and Hinekuremono no Gakuen Seishun Monogatari 1. Daedalus: The Awakening of Golden Jazz ダイダロス:ジ・アウェイクニング・オブ・ゴールデンジャズ [181213] Arc System Works 1 2 3 It was a month ago when Kyosuke Jinguji was found murdered. Saburo Jinguji, his grandson, flys off to New York, to collect his beloved grandfather's belonings. Time passed
  24. No masterpieces this month. But if I had to choose something, I'd probably point at Amazing Grace -What color is your attribute?- . Micchi is also happy about nukige Uchi no Imouto and RPG Fuukan no Grasesta . 1. Akuma Seijo ~Demon Girl Step~ 悪魔聖女 ~デーモンガール・ステップ~ [181130] SofthouseChara Ruti is a demon who was vanquished a long time ago and a part of him was sealed away. Now in the present, he was resurrected by the pitiful Kyouka who mistakened him for a sex toy. He hatched a plan to train her as the evil mahou shoujo Dark Cherry and collect
  25. Deep One is the only decent game this month. Micchi is also moderately interested in Deatte 5fun and LocaLove Dousei×Kouhai 1. Can Can Bunny Premiere 3 きゃんきゃんバニープルミエール3 [181026] Cocktail Soft When Negi decided to attend university in Tokyo this spring, he was coerced by his grandfather to take care of a small shrine while he was there. After finishing the general cleaning, all that was left was the small pond at the back of the shrine grounds. He looked up at the blooming cherry blooms as he swept the small shrine on the banks on the pond a
