  1. I'm leaning towards Evolimit, Sukimazakura, Asairo, Tokyo Babel, Ayakashibito.
  2. Foreword: It's always nice to read a work with a fresh concept Synopsis: You start out in a flashback, the last remaining two humans fighting against him. Of course, after that you wake up in a place unknown to you along with a bishoujo and you lost all your memories. The girl with you explains that this is no longer a world you once lived in, a world where trains, bus and bicycles no longer exists. People travel by flight, literally. Not only that, but people transforming into colossus form, reading invisible books, and opening doors that cut through space continuum. Yep, we
  3. April is busy as usual even without couple nukige skipped by me. Kouyoku no Soleil -vii’s World- is the only game that I acclaim as masterpiece. Zen is justly fascinated by Mahoutsukai no Yoru, but I have a difficult history with this game and I loathe it. Micchi is dying for D.C.III and lots of other sweet stuff that I avoid listing in fear of getting diabetes. 1. Mahoutsukai no Yoru 魔法使いの夜 [120412] Type-Moon 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 “Near the end of the Showa Era. (Late 1980s) In the old mansion rumored that a witch lives, Aoko Aoz
  4. There are two masterpieces - Otome ga Tsumugu Koi no Canvas and '&' - Sora no Mukou de Sakimasu you ni - , but my personal preference leans to second one. By the way, one is supported by Zen and the other one by Micchi . They also anticipate Dracu-Riot and some other stuff. 1. Friends [120323] Aile Soft Hashirajima Gakuen is a historic girls’ school which turned co-ed due to the declining birthrate. However, the school remained overwhelmingly female. Kei is a boy who transferred into the school and started living at the Saiu
  5. I'll name Hatsuyuki Sakura , Grisaia no Meikyuu are Shinigami no Testament ~menuet of epistula~ as masterpieces with chunige taking over. Both Zen and Micchi support first two choices and also Tsukumo no Tsuki 1. Photo Kano フォトカノ [120202] Enterbrain! 1 2 3 Kazuya Maeda is a second-year high school student who takes pictures of girls with his camera that he received from his dad. The game focuses on his romantic encounters with various girls at his school. There are English reviews 2.
  6. Just 7 titles... but at least we've got Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! S . Zen sees eye to eye with me while Micchi craves for fandisc and Dousei LoverAble 1. Phase-D: Souka no Shou Phase D 蒼華の章 [120126] BOOST ON 1 There are four phases of human existence. From conception to birth is called Phase A. From birth to death is called Phase B. From death to disappearance of the corpse is Phase C. And last, remnant after the death, separate from the corpse, is referred to as Phase D. In this, the very first chapter in Phase D sci-fi v
  7. Year 2011 is a hurricane of great titles. My initial pick contained 20 masterpieces, but had to widen this selection up to 28 with some additional feedback since I can't sample it all on my own at the moment and there are genres I just can't force myself to play. Visual Novel Openings 2011 with songs just because. My list of masterpieces in 2011: Aiyoku no Eustia Bloody Rondo Dengeki Stryker Duelist engage Dunamis 15 Grisaia no Kajitsu Hanachirutani Sanjinkou Hotel. Hyper→Hig
  8. Detailed thoughts are only possible with fresh enough memories. And I remember cheering for Kazusa and liking it, thus I called Introductory chapter a masterpiece. Setsuna remained toxic to me since the end of Introductory chapter, and her tears only irritated me more. But I can't stand this split into two games, can't call it masterpiece twice, not worth it, too much attention for this game already. Just a rather popular game with good enough concept for comparisons. There are enough people who are crazy about this game already, and I'm not interested in replaying it.
  9. Hotel. is the only masterpiece for me in December. Micchi highlights some RPG and - naturally - a game about 345 imoutos 1. Ever17 [111201] CyberFront 1 Ever17 is the tale of seven individuals who come to be trapped 153 feet within the underwater marine theme park, LeMU. During an apparently normal day at the park, a massive accident happens, placing almost half of the facility underwater. The path to the surface and the communication lines are cut off. In addition, LeMU is under constant assault by severe water pressure, limiting tim
  10. Foreword: When I face Sengoku feminization in anime I facepalm and look away, but this setting was not as frequent back in the past, so it fascinates me to try and find that one source that impressed followers so much. Synopsis: Mitsuhide is an extremely poor ‘student ronin’ who gets by via part-time jobs. One day, he receives an enrollment letter to Sengoku Gakuen and readily accepts it. On his first day, a girl named Nobunaga points her sword at him: “How dare you show your face to me, I’m gonna cut your head off!”. Fearful for his life, he explains that he’s not the real Akechi
  11. Yurikago yori Tenshi made is VN of the Month. Another notable masterpiece is Hanachirutani Sanjinkou . Legend Seven ~Shirayuki Hime to Shichinin no Eiyuu~ would also fit those who liked Schatten. Zen finds merit in Mareni writing while Micchi goes full-scale moe with Shunki Gentei Poco a Poco, Hare Tokidoki Otenki-ame and even Sonicomi 1. Dare ga Koroshita Komadori o 誰が殺したコマドリを [111118] Smile Senki 1 Kotori is a reserved schoolgirl and is pretty much uninterested with anything around her. Weighed down by anxieties and insecuriti
  12. Izuna Zanshinken is VN of October. But I also see merit in Midori no Umi . Zen and Micchi promote these two games as well while also picking Renai 0 Kilometer and some fandisc. 1. AKB1/48: Idol to Guam de Koishitara... AKB1/48 アイドルとグアムで恋したら・・・ [111006] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. Dating is something the AKB girls are not allowed to do. But for you, they are going to make an exception. This summer, the girls invite you to the tropical paradise Guam, all you need to do when you get there is to spend time with them and choose your one dream
  13. There are over 20 games in September with masterpieces to cover everyone's tastes. Mirai Nostalgia is for nakige, Dunamis 15 for mystery, Kajiri Kamui Kagura for action, plus will decide on Code 18 status later as I want to play it absolutely blindly. Action game prevails for me, as usual. Zen agrees with me on the main favorites, plus features your diary. Micchi lists all kinds of moege with titles each more sugary than the other. 1. Corpse Party: Book of Shadows コープスパーティー ブックオブシャドウズ [110901] MAGES. GAME 1 2 3 Before, during, a
  14. Few normal titles get released during summer Comiket. Seriously, there's just one ordinary format game Diamic Days that I don't accept as a masterpiece, and it wins by default as VN of the Month... Micchi supports this idea and tries to focus on doujins to fill the blanks. 1. Seijaku ni Chain-saw 静寂に電気鋸 [110813] Chainsou ――The view I'd grown so used to seeing through the lens had been smashed to pieces―― Shinadojima, where two moons hand in the sky. Every inhabitant of this island, by way of
  15. Irotoridori no Sekai is VN of the month while Tenshi no Hane o Fumanaide is another worthy masterpiece. Micchi only wants moar imoutos from Sis Koi 1. Kuon no Kizuna -The Origin- 久遠の絆 -THE ORIGIN- [110701] Xuse This is the fully-voiced remake of FOG/XUSE’s 1998 title of the same name. It adds a new scenario and also additional events for existing routes. With the arrival of new transfer student Mayou, Takeru is caught up in bizarre incidents and has unexplainable nightmares. He hasn’t realized yet that it is related to his destiny from thous
  16. I'm not fan of shounens, but Dengeki Stryker is fun enough to be VN of the Month. Sukimazakura to Uso no Machi is another masterpiece with a thrilling sophisticated concept. Micchi also favors the latter one, plus a delayed fandisc and Rewrite that I consider a huge fake. 1. Natsuyuki ~Summer Snow~ 夏雪 ~summer_snow~ [110603] Silver Bullet 1 2 When he was a child, Katsu had an argument with his parents one summer and ran off to an address he found on a New Year’s greeting card. It was in this rural village of Takaragi that he met
  17. Foreword: It's an all-ages non-trivial setting doujin work of the best quality I ever seen by Watanabe Ryouichi. If that's not enough... Synopsis: 1400 years ago first murderer demons get spotted 700 years ago western technologies start to get used for rebellion 500 years ago murderer demons learn to acquire human image in Transilvania 18 years ago a huge massacre takes part in Japan 10 years ago murderer demon is killed at the age of six in Japan Nowadays. Sakurano Mana gets worried by the murderous desire
  18. Vermilion -Bind of Blood- does not have competitors in May, but Taiyou no Promia is also a well done game. In addition 'll name Koi de wa Naku - It's not Love, but so Where Near. a masterpiece, because it's an original concept providing food for thought. Can't nominate AXL game this time since I'm tired of Hasegawa Ai writing when she does not come out of comfort zone presenting yet another different activity club story with too many heroines to make it special. Zen has similar favorites while Micchi is led astray by Hatsukoi Yohou , Kamikaze☆Explorer and even Henshin!
  19. April benefits from titles delayed in March, but among 17 titles I can only acknowledge Aiyoku no Eustia for its detailed world and characters, although it's not the kind of game I can enojy. Micchi also empathizes a delayed title and some fandisc. 1. Duelist x Engage デュエリスト×エンゲージ [110408] Praline 1 Shidou Yukito’s mornings are always busy. Waking up before the sun rises, battling against the cold air and temptations to go back to sleep, every second is too valuable to waste. A regular day, regular people, and M
  20. A lot of titles got delayed till April, so we're sitting at 10 titles again just like in February. Onigokko! is the only masterpiece I acknowledge. Micchi basically only favors Onigokko and games that got delayed, so let's anticipate a hot April. 1. Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto - Ginga Bishounen Densetsu STAR DRIVER 輝きのタクト 銀河美少年伝説 [110303] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. In Southern Japan, there lies the verdant Minamijuuji Island. One night, a youth by the name of Tsunashi Takuto arrives on one of the island's b
  21. I remember enjoying Grisaia no Kajitsu a long time ago even though nowadays Frontwing eternal greed for releasing series in episodes and inserting ads in their official channel and everyone else's channels makes me sick. Micchi favors Lover Able and some fandisc. 1. Artemis Blue アルテミスブルー [110224] Applique -Imouto- 1 2 3 In 2040, a mysterious natural disaster causes all planes to stop functioning above 500 feet (150 meters) of the Earth’s surface, resulting in over 20 million deaths. The year is 2060 and it is forbidden to fly ab
  22. Bloody Rondo is the only real deal in January. Zen supports this idea while Micchi sees this month as a slow start of the year with only fandisc and some moege looking appealing enough. 1. Smile☆Shooter ~First☆Ticket~ スマイル☆シューター ~ふぁーすと☆ちけっと~ [110114] Kuroneko-san Team The latest all-ages musical action ADV from Kogado Studio features new idol group Smile☆Shooter, which has been popular on cell phones and Twitter. In the game, you have to help the girls (Yurina, Airi, Mayu) with their debut. It’s a mix of ADV and musical action parts,
  23. Year 2010 is as lively as ever. I don't think there was another such year where I was able to find at least one masterpiece in each month. The overall number 18 is slightly less, but it only shows the continuing tendency for increasing charage share, and I blocked quite a lot of charage from getting into masterpieces just because did not see a story-driven plot or some spark. There even was one 10/10 game for me, and that does not come often. Visual Novel Openings 2010 with songs just because I still into openings. And I seriously hate it when openings are interrupted with ads, so I try to cut
  24. There are several notable works this month, but I'm only going to call Ore no Tsure wa Hito de nashi a masterpiece. Micchi lays hopes on Hello,good-bye that rather disappointed me, Akatoki with gameplay elements and some fandisc. 1. Let's Kaitou! Nusumi Kei!? -Ano Ko no Heart no Nusumikata, Oshiemasu♪- Let’s快盗!ヌすみ系!? -あの子のハートの盗み方、教えます♪- [101210] SQUEEZ sweet Tomoki comes from a family of second-rate thieves and is relatively normal aside from his skill in billiards. In order to become a first-class thief, he enrolls in the famous thief school K
  25. Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete is the only masterpiece. Micchi is of the same opinion, but also with high hopes for Kicking Horse★Rhapsody 1. Dangan Ronpa Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei ダンガンロンパ 希望の学園と絶望の高校生 [101125] 1 2 3 4 5 6 Spike Chunsoft Hope's Peak Academy is a government-funded private high school recognized all across the nation as the cradle of hope and prosperity, providing a complete education for "ultimate" students of all stripes.
