  1. I'd only call Ouka Sengoku ~Nobunaga-chan no Koishite Yabou!?~ a masterpiece this month since other candidates don't have strong enough story component though can be great charage for someone. Since there aren't English reviews, I feel the need to make one eventually. Micchi calls October 2010 a "moe" month favoring two most prominent titles in this regards - Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate and Kisaragi GOLD★STAR 1. Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi 星空へ架かる橋 [101015] feng 1 2 Kazuma moved to Yamabiko-chou due to his younger brother Ayumu’s he
  2. Fortissimo//Akkord:Bsusvier in its EXA version is the only masterpiece of the month. Michi thinks alike while also highlighting one moege and some fandiscs. 1. Trick x Logic Season 2 [100916] Chunsoft 1 Once again, all of these stories are loosely linked by the story of prosecutor Yoshikawa trying to solve his own murder by reading underworldly Akasha (crime records) and young camera-woman Tsukasa who keeps getting involved with murder cases. There is an English review. 2. Durarara!! 3-wa
  3. Fewer normal titles see the light due to Comiket rivalry this month. As a result, I can only call a doujin game Indigo masterpiece and winner by default. Probably I should review it one day for popularization purposes. Micchi has to choose among the published works, so lays hopes on Suzukaze no Melt. 1. Framing Summer フレーミングサマー [100813] Wavestar Kou joins the camera circle since he wants to take pictures of shooting stars. He meets there Rui who loves taking pictures of everything, especially cute things. He summons up the coura
  4. Wow, I'm going to call as many as three games masterpieces this month - Tasogare no Sinsemilla , Para-Sol and Second Novel ~ Kanojo no Natsu, 15fun no Kioku~ . And the last one is something special, so it wins. It's definitely in my review queue. Micchi awaits cuteness from Sugar+Spice2 and fandiscs. 1. Executor Script エグゼクタースクリプト [100702] Triangle In a world where some people possess magic-like special abilities, Yamahito is a student who can use a power called ‘executor’. Together with his friend Shin they cause a commotion an
  5. Deardrops and Comsome! ~Combination Somebody~ make the only masterpieces for me in June. And first one is more polished. Micchi for once agrees with me although anticipating even more from Angel Ring. 1. Deardrops [100618] Overdrive 1 2 3 4 5 6 Shouichi was known as one of the ‘nobles’ of the violin world. Having started playing the violin when he was 3, he won the national violin competition when he was in middle school and went to Germany to play in orchestras. However, due to unknown reasons, he returned to Japan, gave up pla
  6. Oh, wow, Tsui no Sora remake is out already. My final preference will depend on the number of jokes and weird talk. SubaHibi took all the fine jokes from Tsui no Sora original and expanded on it. But structure-wise Tsui no Sora was sharper. Putting those things together would be ideal. Probably I do not remember White Album 2 Closing chapter that well already like it is news to me there are sub-heroines there. Introductory chapter interested me and then made me infuriated, provoking emotions. During Closing chapter I was mad at Setsuna all the time, so only irritation made a lasting impre
  7. Evolimit is the only real masterpiece here. I'll review it eventually, but with Dailymotion limit of two hours per day it would take over a month of real time, so it's the only thing I review in 2010. Micchi falls for nekomimi You∞Gaku just because of cuteness. 1. Nadeshiko Ranbu 撫子乱舞 [100521] White Cyc Focuses on the Yamato Nadeshiko archetype – the ideal Japanese woman, Takahiro resides in Misaki-shi where there is a competition to determine who most depicts the Yamato Nadeshiko. In the past, there was a woman who protected th
  8. Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~ finally can be considered a masterpiece as story actually moves somewhere this time. Micchi sees some merit in Iro ni Ide ni keri Waga Koi wa . 1. Eien no Ikusa Hime 永焔の戦姫 [100413] Eushully Eien no Ikusa Hime contains the novelized versions of Ikusa Megami Zero, Genrin no Kishougun and Genrin no Kishougun 2 for those who want to jump into Verita without missing the previous story developments. Remake without gameplay parts 2. Akatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibuka
  9. Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~ is VN of the Month, moreover, a 10/10. I'm going to call White Album 2 ~Introductory Chapter~ another masterpiece since it was at least memorable compared to Closing Chapter. Micchi is mostly interested in Koiiro Soramoyou 1. Cross Days [100319] 0verflow 1 2 Yuuki first met Kotonoha at the school library in the beginning of second semester, but there was no progress with their relationship. They just frequently came to the school library... One day, he sees Roka at the school library and h
  10. Kashimashi Communication and Tsubasa o Kudasai are masterpieces with the latter having priority due to original concept. Micchi is fascinated by cuteness of Magicarat☆Radiant and throws in a bunch of nukige since there's not so much to discuss this month. 1. Misshitsu no Sacrifice 密室のサクリファイス [100214] Intense 1 Deep underground lies an immense living facility: Foundation. When was it built, and why? Who, or what, brought its residents there? The truth has faded with the years, and its history has sunk into the ocean of time. No on
  11. Haruko route and two endings were 6 at best, maybe 5. All the long flagging and abundance of choices with SOL events irritated a lot. Did not finish Akira route, but I liked her as a heroine even less. Doubt even True route would get me over 6.
  12. A nice busy month. I'd only call Rune Lord and Harukaze dori ni, Tomarigi o. 2nd Story ~Tsuki no Tobira to Umi no Kakera~ masterpieces with traditionally chunige having the upper hand over charage. As for review, won't be any this month. Will only review couple games per year, probably with video playthroughs properly backed up, will see when first appealing for review game shows up. As usual, Micchi is mostly interested in fandiscs. 1. Last Window: Mayonaka no Yakusoku ラストウィンドウ 真夜中の約束 [100114] Cing 1 2 3 4 5 6 It is the seq
  13. Year 2009 was cool in my evaluation due to two 10/10 masterpieces. It starts to get weird, but the overall number of masterpieces for me is exactly 20 yet again this year. New portion of Visual Novel Openings 2009 with songs. My list of masterpieces in 2009: Abyss -Homicide Club- Amber Quartz Bengarachou Hakubutsushi Boku no Te no Naka no Rakuen Coμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku - Devils Devel Concept Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. Heliotrope -Sore wa Shi ni Itaru Kami no Ai- Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star-
  14. Actually, takedown was due to copyright this time since Natsu no Ame BGM rights owner issued some 50 complaints for each of game's videos (for each play fragment, apparently) at the same time, so it was instantly 500 violations or so. Usually it's just 1, only Garden had some 30 per video, but at that point I ignored and nothing happened for a year. If I ever record any gameplay, it will be with BGM shut down. But the question is why would we need playthrough without BGM.
  15. Another sucky month. I recordered couple routes of Fake Azure Arcology by the time my second youtube channel got hammered, so let's call Fake Azure Arcology VN of the month since too many releases this month are gameplay ones. Yes, I know I promised to review Atori no Sora to Shinchuu no Tsuki , but for the same reason don't want to pull it out without video. It was a heavy and not interesting game, anyway. Micchi is fascinated about fandiscs, as usual. And there won't be usual end of the year poll next time - rather there will be poll about direction of this blog.
  16. Google was always best in comparison to Bing. Baidu is just old generation word-to-word translator.
  17. Textractor kinda worked at times for me after another google api change, but had to use Bing for last four games or so. Good to return back to Google.
  18. Hikari no Valusia ~What a Beautiful Hopes~ is VN of the Month, but for me it's not a masterpiece. I happened to play Sorafune and Shiden ~Enkan no Kizuna~ in the past, so will take Atori no Sora to Shinchuu no Tsuki for review. Micchi is understandably fascinated by Baldr Sky Dive2, but also lays hopes on Imouto Smile, Shiden and Suzunone Seven fandisc. 1. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift ブレイブルー コンティニュアム シフト, [091120] Arc System Works 1 2 3 4 The game is set after the events of Blazblue: Calamity Trigger. A few days have passed since the reported r
  19. Foreword: I somehow did not play this Nitroplus game earlier, but its universally high scores are intriguing. Synopsis: In the first half of 20th century, Rokuhara Shogunate rules Japan with an iron fist of robotic suits of armor called Tsurugi, while the West wants to turn Japan into another military base. A policeman called Kageaki Minato arrives into a city of Kamakura to solve various different cases involving Tsurugi users (or Mushas), and when all other means are proven useless, defeats them with a skillful use of his own Tsurugi, the bloody red Muramasa. But he doesn't
  20. Soukou Akki Muramasa is VN of the month. Among other masterpieces is Steins;Gate and Coμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku. Of course I'm playing the Nitroplus one. Micchi considers this month to be the best in the year for bringing such sugary titles as Mashiroiro Symphony and My Girlfriend is the President. 1. Sora o Tobu, 7tsu Me no Mahou. 空を飛ぶ、7つ目の魔法。 [091002] La'cryma Soramitsu's After Story. More MoeMoe, more ecchi, more slapstick, and new characters! I wonder why it's called a sequel rather than fandisc since it's definitely i
  21. Foreword: Cover is worryingly fanservice-ish , but with Micchi and Accany praise it should not be a problem, right? Synopsis: You start off as Kenji, a pretty ordinary kid (yes you start off as a kid) who’s visiting his aunt during the holidays with his father. There, he meets his cousin Ai, a quiet girl who is just one year younger than him. They were left together in the house so they went out to the nearby sea to play. But because Ai was so quiet, Kenji decided to play alone in the sea while Ai looked at him from the beach. Going back home, Ai lied to her mother that
  22. Foreword: It's a very curious game that I played in the past and then lost. Happy to find and finish it now. Synopsis: The plot of Natsu no Ame revolves around Sousuke, a soccer loving idiot who spends his days practicing with his two friends, Takeda and Midori for the day when he is allowed to return to the soccer club he was forced to resign from. The story begins with Sousuke recalling a memory from his past where he pondered what qualifies as a first love, thinking about a young girl he teased almost to the point of tears as a child. Upon snapping back to the present
  23. I feel that I can safely call Natsu no Ame VN of the Month. Sorairo I'm also taking up for review, because I don't want to choose between the two. Lastly, there's Eden* They Were Only Two, On The Planet. that I remember as a nice short atmospheric game. Micchi was of pretty much the same opinion except for Natsu no Ame since it was difficult to except an overwhelming masterpiece from a new brand. 1. Kokuhaku こくはく [090914] Sound Wing 1 Main character is your typical super popular guy, and all the girls are in love with him.
  24. Foreword: Abyss is one of the more known doujin games and even has a fuwanovel recommendation page. But I could find only one English review, so it needs to be fixed asap. Synopsis: Sasayama Akira was born into a family of assassins and trained as a child to become one of them. However, due to psychological issues, his father decided to send Akira to a relative's house, to live a normal life. Several years later, Akira gets asked by the student council president to investigate a rumor of a group called Abyss, a shadowy group of students responsible for abducting and kill
