  1. I'm getting too predictable with limited interest range and narrowing selection. Wonder what I'll do when there are like five works in one month to choose from. Decided with September selection already, and it's going to be way out of my comfort zone.
  2. Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! is VN of the Month. Guess I'll need to review and evaluate doujin Abyss -Homicide Club- . As many as two doujin games during this August Comiket managed to crawl into the list. Micchi does not really see anything worthwhile, but he starts to add some synopsis starting from this month. 1. Abyss -Homicide Club- ABYSS -殺人クラブ- [090815] Festival 1 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 Aki
  3. Foreword: Shumon Yuu work from Propeller already sounds intriguing. Synopsis: We were always together. Irreplaceable friends. There was a strong tie between us even we got separated. Several years later, we have a chance to meet again at school. There are only four classmates, but that's enough. Only us. However... "Stop acting like before." Our relationship gets cold and distant. It's only me who believed in our eternal friendship. What made us like this...? "Ayanashisai Festival" Each person was given their own color. "Red" I make up my mind to establish our good-old
  4. Foreword: Another Mareni work that's worth investigating. Synopsis: Tomohisa has some memory of his childhood. When he was a kid, he was often playing at some place near his house. But his parents don't remember it. Tomohisa doesn't remember it clearly, either. One day, he finds a notebook. It is about history and things happened at a small town. It's just eccentric, so no one pays attention to it. But he knows who wrote it. It's his uncle, who has been missing for years. The notebook includes a town he spent his childhood. He soon gets interested in the town and decides to visit
  5. Kitto, Sumiwataru Asairo Yori mo is VN of the Month, Bengarachou Hakubutsushi makes another masterpiece. Micchi is especially excited about Natsuyume Nagisa and also about Owarinaki Natsu, Towa Naru Shirabe , but too much sweetness for me. 1. Rosario to Vampire Capu 2: Koi to Yume no Rapsodia ロザリオとバンパイア 恋と夢の狂想曲 [090723] Compile Heart The school called Youkai Gakuen High School Tsukune entered is actually for monsters. But there are a lot of pretty girls. One day, Ginei plans to hold a school festival called "The Youkai Fes". The story just goes on
  6. Foreword: Game looks like a parody chunige with dimension shifts, so I'd like to know the story. Synopsis: The story takes place in the near future, when monsters frequently appear in the town. Hiromi has just moved to another school because his previous school was closed. The monsters used to be dangerous creatures before, but they are now like crows or stray dogs thanks to high-quality monster exterminators. But one day, Hiromi is suddenly attacked by a monster when he meets Kiku, who has just come to the town from deep inside the mountain. Hiromi and Kiku strangely get a specia
  7. Foreword: A nice otaku game always catches my attention. Synopsis: Kenjiro is lazy and has no job. One day, his mother calls him and tells that she asked his aunt to hire him at her school. However, Kenjiro is a hardcore otaku - he has no social skills to speak of, can't get along with people, and has never dated a girl... When he arrives at the school, he is shocked to find out it's an all-girls' school, and has no idea what he should do! Luckily he meets up with Nanase, his cousin he used to play together with when they were young. She, however, suddenly says to him, "
  8. I'll call Zettai Karen! Ojou-sama VN of the month, but can't say if it is a masterpiece yet. Same refers to Reincarnation ☆ Shinsengumi! which I'm reviewing to find out its merit. Micchi doesn't see anything worthwhile this month, but Zen is enthralled by yanderege Oni Uta 1. Juusei to Diamond 銃声とダイヤモンド [090618] SCEI Onizuka Youichi - the negotiator from New York - has contracted with the Japanese police and is working for Zero Department, which had been newly formed to specialize in hostage negotiation. However, when another depar
  9. Foreword: A localized chunige with intriguing concept, can't miss that. Synopsis: When a chance encounter drops him into the middle of a war between a secret organization of superheroes and the shadow creatures known as schatten, Himehagi Aisaku must awaken the hero within if he hopes to protect all that he holds dear. Together with the valiant princess Keziah, Aisaku will don his blazing armor and shine a light on the shadows that infest his city. But the darkness he uncovers may be deeper than anything he imagined. Courage! Conviction! Friendship! Love! Will Ais
  10. Trample on "Schatten!!" ~Kagefumi no Uta~ is the only masterpiece this month. And I'll actually review its untranslated and uncensored version. Micchi mostly observes delayed and gameplay visual novels while being expectedly fascinated by Tenshin Ranman and Tayutama fandisc. 1. Boku no Oukoku ぼくの王国 [090501] Finish! Kane is a shepherd. One day, he meets Elith, the spirit of the earth. Kane follows Elith's prediction and saves Princess Sharlot, who has been kept hostage by bandits. His brave action is highly appreciated and he becomes the leader of
  11. Foreword: CGs of this game look perfect, so I decided to check out why evaluations are so different. Synopsis: There is a mysterious phenomenon that some people are given a divine power, but cursed instead. Yes, those people are found all around the world. Yashiro is negative and withdrawn. One day, a girl suddenly appears and gives him a sword called "Laevatein". Like this, he gets involved in a battle. As being in a battle, he gradually gets to know what's going on around the world. A battle for the mysterious island.... A guerrilla group called "Banner".... A m
  12. I'll only name Heliotrope -Sore wa Shi ni Itaru Kami no Ai- as masterpiece this month. Micchi finally has Zen to join with his ever-sarcastic comments, and they don't seem to be hyped much about anything this month. 1. Fukai Kiri no Naka de... 深霧の中で… [090403] Caricature One day, Yuma, who belongs to the Japanese archery club, receives a call from his uncle, the chief of his hometown village. "We've just built a sports training facility. Do you wanna stay there before it officially opens?" "Yes, let's have a camp for training there." Like this, Yum
  13. Foreword: It looked like a chunige with some badass weapons. And I know that I rated previous Disabel "chunige" as 5/10... Synopsis: This game contains strange love stories of five couples. You can enjoy various stories of mysterious heroines at school in the country. Five stories are connected to each other and it affects your ending. The story grows deeper as it goes and becomes one grand story....

  14. Outside gameplay titles I'd only call Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star- and Boku no Te no Naka no Rakuen (because it's tsundere fantasy!) mastepieces. I'll review School Five ~Itsutsu no Himitsu no Monogatari~ since it has battle heroines and kind of obscure. I've always been shocked by the fact how untranslated moege Flyable Heart got so many reviews. I guess there was some horrible English translation, because otherwise it's super suspicious. Michi is pissing rainbows with this number of moege, but it's sad that comments did not survive. 1. Galaxy Angel II Eigou
  15. Foreword: It's Akatsuki Works. Do I need to add anything here? Synopsis: Human, monsters, and beasts... The world doesn't forgive them... There is a town where mysterious cases often happen. The ones who have special ability called Enja. The origin of Enja is "devil". They get together as if led by something unseen and kill each other. Sora is an Enja boy. He lost his parents several years ago and now lives alone. His life is full of peace, rest, and destruction. Peaceful school life with friends. Strange dreams he has every day. Battles against devils that appear in the
  16. Foreword: A translated fighting focused vn, don't see significant reasons to skip it. Synopsis: The story takes place on a small fictional island in Japan called Rokushiki Jima (6 Ceremony/Equation Island). In this island, there is a festival held every year called the Rokushiki Sai where young girls on the island borrow the power of God and fight each other. There are 6 head families on the island, who succeeds individual fighting techniques and manages the festival tournament. The Day-side scenario is the original part, featuring the visible side of the tournament.
  17. Can't say Shinjisougeki Carnival is bad, but it's a huge quality downshift from normal titles with its short length, absence of voicing and simplistic CG. Maybe I should still pick Ludesia as well. As for BL , Yuri and Otome titles, I don't think I'll include any at all since I sabotaged all the specialized review sources and followed only those that were reviewed alongside usual titles by authors such as liemyx, so it's very incomplete assortment, and there is zero will to travel through specialized sources. Some nukige reviews feel totally useless and saying nothing new or interesting,
  18. There are only six titles this month to choose from, but four of those are masterpieces - Shinjisougeki Carnival, Devils Devel Concept, Like a Butler and Tapestry -you will meet yourself- . Reviewing first two. Micchi has pretty much the same, plus three vns that I block as nukige, but what's really funny is that he considers only delayed game Areas and Yoake fandisc big titles. Expectations and outcome don't necessarily coincide. 1. Shinjisougeki Carnival 神事双劇カーニバル [090203] Talestune 1 The story takes place on a small fictional island
  19. Foreword: Cotton Soft chunige are always welcome by me. Synopsis: There used to be a group of friends. They really trusted each other and their relationship never seemed to end. However, they gradually split up as time passed. Seven years later, Subaru now enjoys his school life with his friends and classmates. But when his old friends appear in front of him, his old memories come back...

  20. OreTsuba almost certainly gets into the end of the year poll as untranslated skipped masterpiece (unless there are over 5 skipped masterpieces that are all more suitable for me), so there is still a solid chance to witness its appeal for me. Looking back at poll history, main consideration is not my feelings, but something that would make a nice video to watch sometime. That's totally fine, I'm just somewhat stressed about finding remotely praising words for that extra review.
  21. Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai - Under the Innocent Sky. and Amber Quartz are the only masterpieces this month. I'm reviewing the latter. micchi has all the same titles, plus some delayed and one nukige. 1. Saiki Kanpatsu Saishoku Kenbi no Kimi-tachi e 才気煥発才色兼備の君たちへ [090122] Applique -Imouto- There are two schools adjoining each other. They are big rivals and often have a fight. In the schools, there are four girls admired by other students. Though they have special ability, they are a little bit peculiar. The main character is Yuki. He has an
  22. After each my hiatus blog composition changes. This does not really need to be true, but something always happens that forces me to do it. Last time my youtube channel got deleted. This time I'm forced to drop ambition in the basis of this blog to provide descriptions for as many obscure visual novels as possible. What changes this time is that I will no longer write any descriptions for doujins and nukige with nsfw covers, will not update recently added visual novels for previous years and will not update vndb pages myself with those few leftover descriptions for non-doujin sfw cov
  23. As far as I know, there is none. But all Tama revelations are concentrated in Rito route.
  24. Foreword: I guess Concerto Note won the poll for extra review, because of partial English release that turned out to be a total scam covering literally only the first three minutes of the game where absolutely nothing is told, and no introductions are made. A lot of years ago I took this bait as well. Now it's time to satisfy that curiosity. Synopsis: Shinya is stuck! He is forced to leave school when he comes back to school after long hospitalization. But one day, he meets his childhood friend, Rito, and she tells him about a new school and an western-style old house. Li
