  1. Clephas chose Yorite Konoha wa Kurenai ni and I also embrace this opinion for now till I play Sora no Baroque myself. Shogun-sama wa Otoshigoro is another masterpiece. Micchi is enthralled by Soi Kano ~Gyutto Dakishimete~ and a loli nukige 1. Aikagi ~After Days~ アイカギ ~アフターデイズ~ [180126] Azarashi Soft Nozomu and his childhood friend Shiori became lovers after the Christmas confession. They had been attending the same university since the following spring, and then their first summer as a couple arrived. Despite being childhood friends, they ha
  2. Year 2017 is probably the last great year with respectable number of releases each month and almost 20 masterpieces. Clephas ended up choosing Aoi Tori, but I generally choose some chunige, so it's Suisei Ginka this time. Visual Novel Openings 2017 . My list of masterpieces in 2017: Ai Yori Aoi Umi no Hate Aoi Tori Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil Bakumatsu Jinchuu Houkoku Resshiden Miburo ChronoBox Haruru Minamo ni! Hataraku Otaku no Ren'ai Jijo
  3. Bakumatsu Jinchuu Houkoku Resshiden Miburo does not have serious contestants in a Comiket month and is VN of the Month. Kin'iro Loveriche is another masterpiece. Clephas had somewhat the same vision. Micchi prioritized Koi ni, Kanmi o Soete, Natural Vacation and Kin-iro Loveriche 1. Sangoku Hime 5 ~Hishou Kourin Senkou no Toushin~ 三極姫5 ~飛将光臨・戦煌の闘神~ [171208] Gesen 18 1 Girl incarnations of famous Chinese generals continue to help main character to conquer the whole China. Eight different heroine scenarios are prepared.
  4. Aoi Tori , Kizuna Kirameku Koi Iroha , Yoru Meguru, Bokura no Maigo Kyoushitsu are all decent choices within their genres, but I should agree with Clephas about the first one being the winner. Micchi feels the same, but adds lighter ones like Making*Lovers , Maho×Roba -Witches spiritual home- , Abnormal Lovers and Yurameku Kokoro ni Michita Sekai de, Kimi no Yume to Yokubou wa Kanau ka 1. Occultic;Nine オカルティック・ナイン [171109] MAGES. GAME Shikura Chiyomaru's fourth title that was first published as a light novel with Pako as character designer.
  5. Yami to Hikari no Sanctuary is VN of the Month with Kanojo wa Tenshi de Imouto de being another masterpiece. Clephas actually chose both. Micchi favors Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart 2 , Tsugihagi Make Peace and a delayed title 1. Arui wa Koi to Iu Na no Mahou あるいは恋という名の魔法 [171027] Omochi Soft Three beautiful princesses came from another world which was built on magic rather than science. Their world was currently facing an unprecedented crisis and they needed to acquire more magical power to overcome it. Yamato’s semen possessed special
  6. Oni ga Kuru. ~Ane ga Hinshi de Pinchi Desu~ is VN of the Month and Omokage Railback is another masterpiece. Clephas was choosing between these two with such outcome. Micchi leans towards Sakura Hitohira Koi Moyou , Seven Days and a fandisc. 1. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! -Kono Yokubukai Game ni Shinpan o!- この素晴らしい世界に祝福を! -この欲深いゲームに審判を!- [170907] MAGES. GAME The series follows a boy who is sent to a fantasy world following his death, forming a dysfunctional party with a goddess, a wizard, and a crusader to fight against monsters.
  7. Foreword: I'm a fan of DnD , Wizardry 8 and Japanese Wizardry series, so I could not just pass by Dungeons & Daimeiwaku. As for Mareni writing, it's a stamp of minimally acceptable quality although without a normal story it can easily go astray. Synopsis: In the world of sword of magic, expert miners discovered an underground labyrinth in a remote area of the continent. “The Abyss” is very huge inside, full of monsters and traps. However, it was rumoured that ancient treasures lie deep inside its depths and adventurers from all over came to challenge the dungeon. Among them
  8. Another August capitulates before the doujins. Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil is the only normal game and winner by default. Did not find Clephas winner for August, but it's ether the same or fandisc or none. Micchi is more interested in Kotonoha Amrilato and fandisc. 1. Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 -Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo- 大逆転裁判2 -成歩堂龍ノ介の覺悟- [170803] Capcom 1 2 3 4 Two months after the events of the previous game, Susato Mikotoba learns that her best friend, Haori Murasame, has been accused of murdering the murderer of Dr. Watson
  9. Hikari no Umi no Apeiria is the only masterpiece in July 2017. Clephas also thought so. Micchi on the other hand finds Hatsujou Sprinkle , Shin Koihime†Musou -Kakumei- Souten no Haou and O-uchi ni Kaeru Made ga Marshmallow Desu to be worthy. 1. Aoiro Note アオイロノート [170728] ad:lib Takuya entered Shikizaka Gakuen this spring. One day after school, he saw his classmate Misora inconspicuously putting up a club recruitment poster in the empty school building. With a cool aura and seemingly hard to approach, the beautiful Misora was th
  10. Clephas ended up choosing nothing, but I'll stop at Ai Yori Aoi Umi no Hate , will need to eventually review it. Micchi only pointed at delayed titles and one fandisc. 1. Shiin 死印 [170601] Experience 1 2 3 The Tokyo metropolitan area's H City. In this suburban city, a strange rumor has been spreading recently. Those who possess the «mark» will die. The «mark» is unexpectedly engraved onto the body, as if it was a chewed up birthmark, and is said to result in an unknown death. As a matter of fact, a strange incident occurred w
  11. Foreword: I know I was going to review Schwarzesmarken, and I quite liked the anime version, but I see zero reason to play the game after anime. Ama no Sora Retrospect, on the other hand, seems to have zero English reviews despite the non-trivial setting, thus it fits my choice pattern nicely. Synopsis: Amanosora is a small town of around 60,000 people, formed ten years ago from the merger of the villages of Tensei and Sorami. Shikimi attends the local school with the cleaning club leader Himari and his lively kouhai Shinon. There’s a rumour at the school that the doo
  12. Kinda forgot to post May. ChronoBox made the day for me with Ojou-sama no Hanbun wa Ren'ai de Dekiteimasu! and Newton to Ringo no Ki as other masterpieces. Clephas had the second one in mind for the winner. Micchi adds such titles as Anata ni Koisuru Ren’ai Recette and Nekopara nukige 1. Amayui Castle Meister 天結いキャッスルマイスター [170526] Eushully 1 “Magesmiths” are wizards that specialize in labyrinth construction and restoration. Avaro, one of them, sought to one day run his own workshop. To realize this dream, he accepted
  13. Clephas chose nothing for this month. But if we add console releases, Tsuihou Senkyo is good and original enough to be called VN of the Month even though I tend to dislike survival games. Micchi expectedly fell for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 and 9-nine- Kokonotsu Kokonoka Kokonoiro , while Zen favors Niizuma LOVELY×CATION and delayed titles. 1. Song of Memories [170427] Pure Wish 1 2 The game involves a mysterious virus that only infects women. In this world, the infected begin their invasion as a “new breed of humans.” The stor
  14. Haruru Minamo ni! is VN of the Month, let's also give credit to Hataraku Otaku no Ren'ai Jijou . Clephas has the same winner. Micchi kinda likes everything - Suisou Ginka no Istoria, TRINOLINE, Natsuiro Kokoro Log ~Happy Summer~, Koinosu☆Ichacolize . 1. Amanatsu Adolesence 甘夏アドゥレセンス [170324] Confiture Soft 1 At Kazamitou Gakuen, students are free to do as they choose and the light music club which Akira is part of is actually the most ‘free’ rock band! Following the motto of enjoying everything in the world, he partook in the c
  15. A small month that has only one definite winner unless you like detectives - Suisei Ginka . Clephas agreed with such choice. Micchi prefers Ouka Sabaki , Shugaten! -sugarfull tempering- and some imouto nukige. 1. Chou Kagaku Dasshutsu Saihate no Cross Eyes 超科学脱出 最果てのクロスアイズ [170222] Intense 1 2 3 Months after the luxury cruise ship explosion case, the girl with two psychic powers, Hitomi Akeneno, has engaged in saving people with the psychic research facility, ZENA, is struggling to strengthen her abilities. At the same time,
  16. Foreword: Third review in a row, huh. I just had footages done beforehand. Prism Princess is a booby action with some animated H scenes which wound usually instantly put game out of my interest zone. But it has fighting heroines, plus humor is reported to be worthy, so why not check it myself. Wanted to change game several times, but found nothing to replace it within a year. Synopsis: One day, a naked girl appeared in hikikomori Naoto’s room. She stripped off his pants and declared: “I’ve found you, son of the demon lord! Now die!” She swung at him with a sword that she
  17. Foreword: Shoujo Shin'iki has some English reviews already, but they tend to focus on negative sides (1 2 3) even though game deserves better. Synopsis: Shun has always wondered what was on the other side of the stone walls surrounding and beyond the tunnel out of Kaijou-shi ever since he was a child. However, he never ventured out since every time there was an opportunity to do so, he fell ill or there was some family business. After he graduated from Seihoukan Gakuen, he decided right then to leave his hometown. The next spring
  18. Foreword: Now when I've run out of RPGs till September 2nd and I don't feel eternally burdened by writing a review, I can finally get to it. Battle and guns is what brought this game into my sphere of interest. But is it really a chunige? Synopsis: The floating university town of Nikkou Gakuen is located in Tokyo Bay. It is a place where researchers and users of ‘power gears’ train hard night and day. Power gears are a new type of energy, allowing users to change into power assist suits. Shuu attends the school, aspiring to be an engineer. Joining up with the failing st
  19. Can't see anything decent enough except for Silverio Trinity . So did Clephas . Micchi lays hopes on Hoshikoi*Tinkle , Ninki Seiyuu no Tsukurikata and even Aikagi . 1. New Dangan Ronpa V3 Minna no Koroshiai Shingakki NEWダンガンロンパV3 みんなのコロシアイ新学期 [170112] Spike Chunsoft 1 2 3 4 5 Like the title "New" implies, the game has a completely different storyline, characters and environment than the first three games (the "Hope's Peak Academy" storyline ends with an anime series), with only the series' mascot Monokuma returning. The game features
  20. Year 2016 is a comeback with some very strong titles and months after somewhat weaker 2015. It even broke out of the 20 masterpiece curse. Clephas hesitated between three titles, and stopped at Tokyo Necro , but for me it was an evident winner. Visual Novel Openings 2015 . My list of masterpieces in 2016: Akeiro Kaikitan Akiyume Kukuru Amatsutsumi Dungeons & Daimeiwaku -Great Edges in the Abyss- Inochi no Spare Island Floral Flowlove
  21. This month comes down to competition between Ou no Mimi ni wa Todokanai! , Akiyume Kukuru and Ryuukishi Bloody † Saga . I'm egoistic when making a choice, so it's the first one. Clephas opted out for the last one as it may have bigger impact for the community that tends to ignore AXL titles that are usually a full head taller than closest rivals within the same month. Micchi also lays hopes on Hatsukoi Sankaime and Shinsou Noise ~Jushin Tantei no Jikenbo~ 1. LoveKami -Sweet Stars- [161216] Pulltop 1 2 3 4 The Goddesses Descend!
  22. Clephas was clear about Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana being the winner , and none of the rivals appeal to me in the slightest, so I concur here. Micchi has a wider selection including Suki to Suki to de Sankaku Ren’ai and Natsuiro Koi Uta 1. Memory's Dogma [161104] LizArts 1 2 3 4 A neuroscience × genetics × near-future sci-fi visual novel adventure game. In 2030, due to Japan’s advancements in neuroscience, memories can now be saved and recorded. This is called e-Memory. However, due to the r
  23. Sora no Tsukurikata -Under the Same Sky, Over the Rainbow- and Signalist Stars!! are the candidates. Clephas nominates the first one. Micchi also underlines Deep Love Diary -Koibito Nikki- . 1. Hi no Nai Tokoro ni Kemuri wa Tatanai 緋のない所に烟は立たない [161001] Akatsuki Works 1 Aside from his usual business as a consultant in Okushima, Shuuri is actually a ‘katariya’ who can get himself out of any problems with words alone. Every day is different from the one before it, and this time was no different. He found the granddaughter of the
  24. Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki is the winner this month, but Dungeons & Daimeiwaku -Great Edges in the Abyss- can also fascinate. Clephas did not see worthy candidates this month. Micchi is captivated by Tayutama 2 and D.C. fandisc. 1. Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro うたわれるもの 二人の白皇 [160921] Aquaplus 1 2 3 4 5 Continues from directly after the events at the end of Itsuwari no Kamen/Mask of Deception. "...I leave Her Highness... in your hands." "Nekone, live on... and find happiness." RPG i
  25. Inochi no Spare is VN of the Month although Clephas also bothered with Gin'iro, Haruka for some reason. Micchi in addition favored Triangle Love -Apricot Fizz and Hanahime*Absolute! 1. Chuusotsu! 1st graduation ちゅーそつ! 1st graduation [160814] Studio Beast 1 2 3 4 5 Under the P3 law enacted under the Global People's Federation, citizens are ranked according to the Authorization Seals issued by the world government.
