  1. I have difficult history with Island and its anime, but it was still a memorable event in VN history worth discussing, so I give it its due. Clephas chose Wagamama High Spec which I placed to February for formal reasons as it was a partial release and not demo back then. Micchi in addition obviously chooses D.S. -Dal Segno- , Natsu Uso -Ahead of the reminiscence- , Wizards Complex and a nukige. 1. Campus Notes - Forget Me Not. Campus Notes - Forget Me Not.

Natsu Uso -Ahead of the Reminiscence- ナツウソ -Ahead of the reminiscence- [160422] Campus 1 2 3 There are many types of lies and everyone has their own reasons to lie. It could be to protect, to deny, to misrepresent, or to keep things unchanged. Souichirou can tell if someone is lying, even if he doesn’t know the specific reason. He gained this ability from a magician one day after wishing to know ‘true feelings’. In exchange, he requires magic power from fulfilling magic contracts, under the guise of the ‘Neko no Te Bu’ (cat’s hand club) at Mahoshi Gakuen. As a result, he became known as the school’s top troublemaker. Souichirou first met his kouhai Aoi last summer when she was dispatched to inspect his ‘Neko no Te Bu’ club and she watched him with hostile eyes. In the year since then, they had gotten closer and then moved apart from one another. Now, after many twists and turns, the club has got a new member and the days were rambunctious as ever. Then one day, he woke up and found himself in a room which he had visited once a year ago. When he tried to recall what happened the night before, he got an intense headache. Sleeping next to him was the girl who always verbally abused him. Moreover, she was totally naked for some reason. There are English reviews 3. Anata o Otoko ni Shite Ageru! あなたをオトコにしてあげる! [160428] ChuableSoft 1 Toushirou found himself in Nanohana Gakuen’s best couple contest even though he didn’t have a girlfriend. It was so that the name of their “Wednesday club” would be etched in the school’s history on the winner’s trophy displayed in the showcase at the school entrance. The four girls in the club decide to train him to become a better man, while also advancing their relationship with him to improve their chances of becoming his partner. Will they be able to win the contest and who will he choose as his ‘girlfriend’? There is an English impression 4. D.S. -Dal Segno- [160428] Circus 1 2 3 4 5 Kazana Island...

Island [160428] Frontwing 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Urashima is a small island, far from mainland Japan. It’s a true utopia, blessed with rich natural beauty. But the island harbors a difficult past, and it’s about to be erased, silently, from history. Soot blight syndrome, an endemic disease, has brought about a rift between the island and the mainland. An offshore platform intended for marine research has long been left abandoned; five years ago, three separate incidents brought the once influential Three Families of Urashima to near ruin. Rumors about children being spirited away have become part of the local folklore, alongside another legend, one that has been repeated on the island since time immemorial... “Let me tell you the legend of this island: it’s a story of tragic love...” The key to saving the island lies with three girls, each of whom belongs to one of the Three Families. These girls aren’t able to change the fate of the island by themselves, but might they succeed with the help of the young man who’s just washed ashore? Claiming that he’s traveled back in time, the man immediately sets out on a lonely path, challenging the longstanding traditions of the island, and seeking to change the future. But those aren’t his only goals... How will his presence transform the lives of these three girls, the future of the island, and the fate of the world...? Game is localized and has English reviews 6. Kono Koi, Seishun ni Yori. この恋、青春により。 [160428] More Spring has come once more to Sakuraba Gakuen and the students pass through the school gates with new hopes. Ace pitcher Tatsuya wishes to make the nationals after falling short last year. Class rep Chiharu wishes to change herself by revealing her hidden feelings. Osananajimi and manager Kyouko wishes to go to the nationals together with him. Loafing classmate Nao wishes to graduate as soon as possible. Top student Rin shoulders the expectations of everyone around her. As third year students, it was their final year at the school. What lies ahead for them? There will probably be both moments of happiness and sadness, but they will be able to one day look back fondly at their youth. System flaws and bugs made a huge dent in evaluation from game's release. Overall, it's a a nice school romcom with Kyouko route being really strong as love triangle story, but the other routes stay half-baked and similar to each other. Actually, may be a good choice if you can still tolerate school romance. 7. Lilycle Rainbow Stage!!! りりくる Rainbow Stage!!!

Nama Love なまラブ [160428] Oct Works 1 Sayohama private school was created a few years ago through the merge of a boys’ school and a girls’ school. Carrying on the tradition from when only young ladies attended the school, it was forbidden to have relationships with the opposite sex. At the end of October, Shouta’s osananajimi and student council president Mafuyu addressed the students at the closing ceremony of the school festival and declared that from that moment on, they were free to fall in love. Earnest but slightly clumsy Mafuyu, who isn’t as close to Shouta as before. Cool pianist Saya, who is adored by all students and loves cute things a lot. Meddlesome tsundere imouto Mio, who dotes on him only when she’s at home. Timid literature girl Kotoha, who became friends with him while skipping class. No longer bound by the school’s rules, their hidden feelings began to overflow in this new season of love. Game is close to a moege as short scenario is followed by thick H part.

Everything was smooth sailing, but he felt like there was something missing in his life. In the middle of his youth which only comes once in a lifetime, his first love may be just around the corner. Looks like it's the final nail in the coffin of Cation animated H SIM series. Visuals has always been its main and probably even sole attraction. 11. Sankai Ou no Yubiwa 珊海王の円環 [160428] Eushully 1 2 In the west-central region of Lunoche of the Raulbhach continent, there’s a legend of a great pirate who hoarded up many treasures, defeated demons by himself, vanquished other pirates and established a nation. His name was Gautherio Bonezzi, the greatest ruler of the seas who achieved everything that he desired. However, that was not the end of the tale about the “King of the Coral Sea”. Several hundred years later, he appeared once more on a ghost ship, proclaiming that he would grant an audience to the one who gathered all six rings to prove their worthiness and fulfill their wishes. It seemed like just an old tale that could be passed off as a bedtime story, but then there were reported sightings of a ghost ship out at sea. Excited that the legend is indeed true, people began to battle with one another to collect the rings before the great king disappears again. Strategy 12. Wizards Complex ウィザーズコンプレックス [160428] Windmill Oasis 1 It’s already been several years since it was confirmed that witches existed around the world. Magic has become part of everyday life, and it was common knowledge that only women can use magic. However, this no longer held true when a single boy was found to possess magic abilities. This boy, Aoi, was invited to attend the Mikuni Academy for Witches. It was a peculiar school where the students were separated into two groups: the East Tower housed domestic students, while the international students occupied the West Tower. Each tower was governed by its own student council. He was initially nervous being the only male student, but he quickly got along with the others. He was expecting a bright and enjoyable school life. Then, he and his classmates were forcefully enlisted as the new student council members for the east tower, and were thrust into a series of magic competitions between the two student councils. They must protect the honor of their tower, but there was one problem: he couldn’t use magic at all. There is an English review BLOCKED 1. Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!

Dies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey~ Dies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey~ [160325] light 1 2 3 "My mother was my sister." Brooklyn, New York - The man who sat across the interviewer at the vampire bar known as the "Borges House" began his story with those odd words. Following the end World War II, the pallid SS officer traversed the globe to many a raging battlefield, leaving carnage unforeseen in his wake. The vampire of the battlefield. The wandering Hakenkreuz. Though his saga was passed down as naught but a stale ghost story, it was no mere urban legend. For he was Wilhelm Ehrenburg - hunted in absolute secrecy by the UN as a remnant of the Third Reich, enemy of the world, and one of the infamous members of the demonic Longinus Dreizehn Orden. And after over half a century, the time had finally come for him to depart for Japan in order to fulfill his most ardent desire. Humoring this interviewer he would have ignored or slain any other day was merely a whim birthed from the exaltation of the promised time drawing ever closer. That was the only reason our intrepid interviewer found him in a talkative mood. Thus, as he reflected on his life, Wilhelm grew nostalgic - sentimental, even - for the path he had walked. And when asked, he unveiled his past piece by piece. From the accursed blood that poisoned his very soul, to the blight wrought by the works of Mercury. He spun a tale of the day he awakened to the truth of his being, and of the woman who had the nature of Wilhelm's existence engraved upon her very being. "Don't you worry, I'm gonna tell you everything. From the first moment I met her, to the very end of our story." Fandisc 2.

His classmates also kept their distance from the strikingly beautiful Tomomi, who would chide anyone who bothered her. One day, Tomomi came up to Hiroto in the courtyard while he was enjoying lunch by himself. He thought she was going to confess to him, prompting a stern rebuke from her, as she was flabbergasted at his unexpected misunderstanding. Actually, she wanted him to come with her after school to the ‘assistance committee’, which is committee under the control of the student council for helping troubled students. However, he hadn’t heard anyone say goods things about it; in fact, it was dreaded to the extent that it is nicknamed the ‘meddling committee’. There are English reviews 3.

The days he spends with them shouldn’t be that unusual, but since they are overly unskilled at love, they are lively and full of exciting happenings.

Oldest son Ryouta helps resolve any problems among the sisters, who greatly love and rely on him. Third daughter Tamane is a domestic girl who takes care of most of the housework. She is a bit concerned about her weight lately. Cat-like youngest daughter Nekoto doesn’t speak much and is a bit strange, but she makes friends very easily. Even though they’re sometimes worried about their father’s tendency to wander, life in the Mamiya household is relatively peaceful. However, one day just before summer vacation, the wealthy Ririka who had fallen in love with Ryouta at first sight, transferred into their school. She declared that she will take Ryouta to be her husband under the pretext that her family had lent their family money to start up the cafe and that she would erase their debt. His sisters sensed a strong danger that their dear brother would be taken away by a total stranger, so they decided to work hard to pay off the debt before the summer ends.

But as I was already used to the phenomenon, I did not let it interfere with the preparation of my evening meal. The ghost ate my fried egg and commended its taste. As I listened to her talk, my memories drifted back to the days we were still together. Back when we were in school, she asked me what was necessary for the two of us to be together. A small workplace that we could make a living from without relying on anyone. A silent apartment where we would have the freedom to do what our hearts desired. I told her that. In the late eighties – during the economic boom – the small design company we founded was doing surprisingly well. We visited all the places we talked about when we were in school – the southern islands, the old European cities, the West Coast. We went wherever we wanted, seeing whatever we sought. Alone in that spacious living room, I attempted to figure out why it all ended this way. Why those days when nothing could stand in our way faded into the past. I no longer felt like I could do everything. The world had grown complicated. Even simple matters became difficult. The rules we had established in the past no longer seemed to apply, and the castle we built for ourselves crumbled to dust. "What is necessary for us to be together?" – the ghost asked me. We need a make a new place for ourselves. A place no one can destroy. Let's make it a place that no one else can reach. And so, I inconspicuously proceeded with the plan. In a place so deep below the surface that no one else can find it. Game is localized and has English reviews 2.

It was at this time that Japan successfully discovered the previously unknown “Astral” particle, which would have solved the world’s energy problems. However, the other nations would not recognize Japan’s superiority and sought to take the new technology by force, sparking the Fifth World War. As the entire world descended into a fierce war, no one had realised the greatest danger to humankind. The new Astral nuclear power reactors malfunctioned, causing a seismic space-time earthquake which wiped out Japan and most of eastern Eurasia. With the birth of the second sun, Amaterasu, came a drastic change in the world situation. As it was impossible to maintain the current culture with the lack of electronic circuits, the war ended without any victor, leaving behind only a deep scar. It took a thousand years before humankind recovered from this catastrophe. It was then that another unprecedented calamity occurred in the capital of Adler, a military nation located in what was formerly Western Europe. Blood and screams filled the burning streets as the city descended into bottomless despair. Two strange beings appeared, challenging the hero and the fate of mankind.

Kurogane Kaikitan -Senya Ichiya- クロガネ回姫譚-閃夜一夜- [150129] Minato Station 1 The topic of the day is anti-terrorism. The story takes place in an alternate history where Japan is the economic center of the world in 2015, where they face threats of terror every day. On February 4, 70 years ago (1945), major cities of the Allied countries all went up in flames at around the same time, bringing Japan to victory. The atomic bombs never dropped, and history basically went the way of an conservative old Japanese man’s wet dream. Fast forward to 2015, and the culture isn’t all that different from the real world aside from the fact that Japan is an economic center that constantly faces terrorist attacks. There’s a bit of the Showa period feeling (high economic growth) to the modern setting. The political side of things isn’t as important as the supernatural setting. There are rare objects with special powers, called Kurogane, that are used in anti-terrorism measures. Kurogane have a variety of useful powers, but they’re tools that choose their owners and few people have an affinity with them. In a high school-level police academy (which behaves more like a somewhat specialized high school than an actual police academy), there exists a top-secret team of Kurogane users called the Kurogane Team that takes on various missions to eradicate terrorists. The protagonist and heroines are all a part of this team, and the story revolves around their missions. There is an English review 3. Durarara!! Relay デュラララ!!

Many years later, with the world trembling at the impending return of the “witch”, he decided to enrol in a magic school to fulfill his promise. However, even though he had top grades in the written and practical exams, he was failed for the simple reason that he had no training as a magician.

In front of him stood a girl in colourful clothing, wielding a giant weapon that’s too big for her and with a shimmering ring on her right hand. She was the girl who he had made the promise with, Ema. She looked at the ring on his hand and declared that he wasn’t the Yuuji that she had hoped for. He didn’t understand what she meant, but she continued: “I will be waiting ahead for you.” Afterwards, he discovered that he had been placed into a class of students with low grades. Unless all of them show qualities of a magician within a month, then they will be forced to drop out. So, Yuuji still had not been recognized as a proper student at the school.

  18. Year 2014 has overall less normal releases and masterpieces that 2013, but there is still one kamige Nanairo Reincarnation and one hilarious mindscrew Bradyon Veda to represent it strongly. I tried to include everything notable in the list, even Aokana, but still only ended at 27 masterpieces. Somehow even number of openings degraded to under 150 from usual close to 200.

For year 2013 Clephas chose Nanairo Reincarnation , and I see the point here.

  19. Teito Hiten Daisakusen is VN of the Month. Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai and Chaos;Child are also masterpieces, but with the latter I'd recommend anime over the game. Clephas chose Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai at the time, but Liar-Soft game was unavailable at the time. 1. Kadenz Fermata//Akkord:Fortissimo [141211] La'cryma 1 It is not the end (fermata) to this story of battles. In order to bring upon “justice”, a special force under the direct command of an organization was formed across the border. Its name was the “Seventh Chord”. Having excelled in manipulating magic (rune) in combat using her life force and living in secret from society, Freya was the only girl who has shown excellent results as a knight. Freya was summoned to the island of eternal summer, where she was born and raised, by Julius, Seventh Chord's commander and her elder brother who she reunited with after being separated for a long time, for her first mission. And that mission, was said to have never been accomplished in history; it was to “defeat a mythical god”. Although it was handed down as a legend before, the "God" that was subdued was revived in this present day and age once again. After analyzing the "abilities" of these mythical gods, the organization created the “strategic creation technology weapon” to fight against them. This ultimate scientific weapon, known as “Miracle”, was handed down to Freya, to challenge these mythical existences to a fight. The enemies have transcended human intelligence, and their immortal existence has the ability to recreate the "powers" of a mythical god. The seven “Mahoutsukai”. The seven people who gathered in the name of justice. The "Kisekitsukai" of the “Seventh Chord”. Ultimate Science (justice) vs. Mythical Magic (another justice) A fight that no one had expected. Before long, the truth will begin to lead one to a sad fate. Mission Rank: SSS-Class.

Amakano アマカノ [141219] Azarashi Soft 1 2 3 It’s only the end of November and the hot springs town Yomase-machi was already a winter wonderland, having been dyed white from the falling snow. Yuuki moved to this snowy town to help his grandparents shovel snow at their home, the former boarding house Yamanouchi-sou. He met many warm-hearted people, including the shrine maiden Sayuki who worries about her inability to properly greet strangers, his mysterious but playful housemate and senpai Mizuki, and the local cafe’s cheerful and energetic kouhai mascot Koharu. Even though he was still feeling lost, he tried to get used to living in this snowy land. During that time, his grandfather suggested that he find love while he is still young and lead a new life in earnest. Now’s the time for him to take the first step and fall in love.

It was the Yuugyouji family’s private library built solely for one girl, Yoruko, who didn’t attend school and spent all her time there. With lots of intriguing books on its shelves, there was no happier place for a bookworm like her. There were also other wonderful and pleasant people who resided there: the protagonist Ruri and his cool sharp-tongued imouto Kisaki, the freeloading tennen moodmaker Rio, and the curious and honest “detective” Kanata. It’s as if they were all brought together by someone or something. Their love of books was the beginning of their youth. Before long, the lonely library became full of light and they became close like childhood friends. Two years later, Ruri returned to the library after leaving the island due to family matters. Nothing seemed to have changed from six years ago, except that there was a secret which they were not aware of back then: “Anything that is written in the magic book will become reality”. If it’s a romance novel, then a miracle-like love story will unfold. If it’s a fantasy novel, then vampires will appear the next day. If it’s a horror novel, then there’ll be a ghost beckoning you from behind. Yoruko’s strong will. Kisaki’s beauty. Rio’s cheerfulness. Kanata’s brilliance. Let’s fall in love with them and books. There are English reviews 5. Kanojo no Seiiki 彼女のセイイキ [141219] feng This is the first title in feng’s low-price Seiiki series, focusing on childhood friend Fuyuka Akiyoshi. The protagonist’s childhood friend Fuyuka came from a rich family and was neat and pretty, so she was like the idol of the class. All the boys admired her, but they also found it hard to get close to her. He felt the same way as he had liked her since they were small. Maybe she was his first love. However, they grew distant from one another after they went to separate schools. One day while returning from Akihabara, he was mistaken for a train molester. The victim was Fuyuka, who he hadn’t seen for a long time. Even though it was just a misunderstanding, she told him that if he wanted her to forgive him, he’ll have to become her butler. Feng was not snatching stars from the sky even with full-price games, so there's just no point 6. Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou 2 月に寄りそう乙女の作法2 [141219] Navel 1 2 3 4 A boy returns from his home country… The protagonist Sakurakouji Saika had a burning passion in his heart: to receive the highest scores in the world-famous designer school: Filia Academy. Aka, earn the Highest Award at the “Academy Show” at the end of the school year. His parents did the same, and they are his role model. This was his dream… Well, was to be his dream at least Saika hears of a bad news from his uncle (Ion), however, that… “Filia Academy Designer School will restrict males from next year” With such a shocking news in mind, Saika considers his options. However, he understands his status now, and decides to throw away his history as a male and attend this school. This is because if he attends under a master, he will be able to hide his true identity and attend as a simple “servant”. Therefore Saika borrows the name “Kokura Asahi” (spelled different in Japanese) and becomes the maid of “Est”. Getting into the school is the easy part: the real difficulty is from now. Even with the best outfit, walking down the runway alone isn’t sufficient. Fashion, Acting, and Music all need to be considered when getting on stage. So Saika (aka, Asahi) will become closer with the girls from the 66-story apartment he prepared named “Sakura no En” (Paradise of Cherry Blossoms) Will Saika be able to find a perfect partner while hiding his identity and receive the highest prize at the Academy Show?

Prism Princess ~Futari no Himekishi to Kokan no Monshou~ プリズム・プリンセス ~ふたりの姫騎士と股間の紋章~ [141226] Pajamas Soft 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 pulled out of nowhere, but it was stopped by another naked girl. “I will definitely protect you…” On top of that, his childhood friend is an idol and his younger sister is not just a chuuni, but secretly a powerful magician!? What the hell is going on? There is no True route or even harem scenes, so there only rather short individual routes. The gist of the the is erotic bakage parody. With the right mindset and expectations this can be a very enjoyable game. Among the visual novels of 2014 it's the most appealing one to take up for review. With this kind of clothing I guess I need to be extra careful for Youtube not to give me hell like it happened with both Soleil games. 9. Teito Hiten Daisakusen 帝都飛天大作戦 [141226] Liar-soft 1 2 This is a world which looks very similar to ours, or possibly a world which shares the same history, but developed in another way. In 1926, the bustling imperial capital of Japan, Tokyo, is a strange blend of newly developed mechanical technology and automatons from the olden days. A great world war had ended not too long ago and another loomed in the horizon, but even with the special procurements in preparation for war and rising anxiety in the city, the general populace were still enjoying their lives full of pleasure and prosperity. However, there was an influx of atrocious crimes menacing everyone from the poor to the rich: murders in back alleys, child abductions, robberies with arson, currency counterfeiting and property destruction. It did not seem to be work of humans. Accounts of strange persons in the city soon spread, and it was agreed upon that they were the work of the spirits, specifically the tengu. One tengu who had come to the city to enjoy the culture in his own way, Garan, resented being blamed for all these crimes. He sensed that these incidents were linked to his bitter enemy, the kijin, and sought to annihilate them. There are English reviews 10.

Hen Koi ≒ Kuro Rekishi 変恋≒黒歴史 [141128] Akane Soft There has always been a great rivalry between the manga research club and the literature club at Oujou Gakuen. No one knows how long this rivalry has lasted, but their quarrels are famous at the school, especially during the culture festival. However, there was a shocking incident this year. The manga research club’s secret journal which is always hidden from view and never leaves the club room somehow ended up in the hands of the literature club! If this became public, then they might have to close their booth at the culture festival, or even worse, the club might be disbanded. Hiroyuki heard about this incident from his friend Satoshi from the manga research club, but he did not think it concerned him. That was until he learned that it contained the delusional writings (black history) which they had written together in the past. He would do anything to get it back. If the contents became known, then his school life will be ruined! He was sent to infiltrate the literature club. Even though he didn’t see eye-to-eye with the literature club’s deputy leader Juri due to a previous accident, he was somehow able to join the club. He found it in total disarray since they were finalizing the preparations for the culture festival on a short notice. They probably would have normally been a bit more guarded, but now wasn’t the time to worry about such small things. He helped the members with their preparations to get closer to them, as he investigated the whereabouts of the journal. If you wondered why this game has no English reviews, it's because of the Hen word in the title, sadly in its worst meaning. With weak text, scenario and individual routes only H emphasis remains. 6.

However, many people left the island to escape from the inauspicious name, and before long the island had its name changed to Hotarubi-jima (light of the fireflies). However, even with its new beautiful name, an ominous shadow still casts over the island. Natsuki lost his mother when he was born and moved at a young age to Hotarubi-jima when his father remarried, along with his two new imoutos. But his surroundings changed completely after the accidental death of his father. Taking care of three kids was deemed too much for his sickly mother-in-law Kaede, so Natsuki and his youngest sister Tsugumi were taken in by relatives outside of the island, while his other sister Madoka remained on the island as the successor of the Tsukumo household. Many years later, Madoka suddenly vanished and there were whispers among the islanders that she was spirited away. No one could find her, so she was considered as dead by an accident. News of Madoka’s death reached Natsuki and Tsugumi on the mainland. However, Kaede prohibited their return to the island and they were unable to attend her funeral. A few years after that, Tsugumi suddenly received a letter from Madoka, simply telling them to come to the island. After discussing it with Natsuki, they decided to return to Hotarubi-jima to find out the truth behind the letter. They soon learned about the sad truth and cruel past of their family clan, as well as the secret of the island. Nukige, but after Tsuisou no Augment curiosity persists. Production team has changed, so it's best not to have any Tsuisou no Augment allusions. Basically, it's a denpa with a lot of fixed bad endings. There's a lot of unexplained mystery everywhere for a short and fragmented story, but nothing worthile for the tremendous amount of effort and endurance needed to reach the True End.

At that time, an ultimate weapon which could create items out of imagination was discovered in a expansive cave under Japan, along with its young master Ryuusei who was in cryostasis. The indiscriminate alien attacks awoke him and he led the humans to a decisive victory. One year later, while the areas which had been destroyed by the aliens were still being rebuilt, Ryuusei was appointed as the commander of the newly-formed Defence Force of Earth, which was created to fight against space invaders. However, he was the only person who could use the ‘imagination embodiment device’. If something was to happen to him, then calamity would befall the world.

[141031] Fire Works 1 2 3 4 5 Why does the protagonist like black hair so much? Well, there’s no need to have a reason, but it might have had something to do with his surroundings during childhood. As the heir to a shrine, he had been surrounded by black-haired women for as long as he could remember. You could say it was in his blood. Thus, it’s only natural that a beautiful black-haired girl would appear before him when he was about to freeze to death. He was captivated by her beauty and thought to himself that if he was going to die, he would marry a black-haired bishoujo like her. So, he proposed to her on the spot. Many months later after he had miraculously survived, the girl Ichou, who was one of the gods of marriage, returned to become his bride. His miko osananajimi Urara would not accept their relationship, but he could not turn down a request from a black-haired lady, especially one who had saved his life. Afterwards, they were joined by Ichou’s imouto Sakuya and the self-proclaimed shinigami-possessed (chuuni) Mizuha. Surrounded by black-haired girls, the odds of his wish being fulfilled look bright.

Modelled after the capital, the recently-built city of Senba is commonly referred to as the ‘miniature garden city’. Even though it is still small, the facilities are quite similar to what you find in downtown Tokyo and the population density is also quite high. One day in October, he was summoned to the student council, Benizuru-kai. The student council president Shizuku asked him to investigate a string of mysterious incidents which have taken place in the city. There had been six students who have disappeared since April. With no eyewitness accounts, she suspected that it was a very widespread case. There was no link among the disappeared students and the school thought that it was strange as well and wanted an investigation into it. She told him that it would be enough if he would just pretend to do something about it. He thought it was a bothersome task and was planning to turn her down, but for some reason she knew everything about the embarrassing chuuni novel which he had written before he moved to the city. Faced with blackmail, he had no choice but to accept her request. He began the investigation with his only friend, extremely perverted kouhai Koko, whose best friend was among the six girls who disappeared. Then a mysterious girl Kirika suddenly appeared, all dressed like a detective (complete with cape), proclaiming that the incident was not a simple disappearance case and it was closely related to the city itself. She then asked him to unravel the city’s secrets with her. There are English reviews 6.

Iori is a young man who doesn’t remember anything more than five years ago, but he has a link to the island. He received a letter summoning him to Shintenjima. He was greeted by the maid Linja and brought to the mansion Hourinkan. There he met the owner Karin, as well as the fellow guests, many of whom were around his age. Surrounded by bishoujos in a suspicious mansion on a secluded island… He had a feeling that something was going to happen. The game is compatible with tablets running Windows 8. It features two new systems: the ‘Fortune Divide System’ where you could use a sword in the interface to ‘cut’ the screen and reveal new choices (swipe the screen for tablets), and the ‘Detective Mode’ where you search for clues to solve a task (although you could always right click for the answers). There’s also a ‘touching mode’ where you touch girls and you can hear their reactions. At first, it feels that this gameplay is a throwaway, but the use of the sword is actually vital to the progress of the story. There’s also a secret notebook and flowchart to help you along the way.

Everyone told us we would fail, but I... We... didn't give up. None of us. We lived on Amanoshima, an island far to the south of mainland Japan and the location of a large aerospace program. Our school, Amanoshima Academy, had a prestigious aerospace curriculum and students from all over the nation attended it, eyes set on being a part of the next generation of rocket scientists. "Hey. Want to make rockets with us?" That was why I was so surprised when asked me to join her. I was enrolled in the normal curriculum, not aerospace, and nobody ever doubted the fact that I was an idiot. But when I looked into her eyes, I saw how sincere she was... and it shook me. Finally, I decided to join the small rocket club she was the president of: Byakko. "You won't make rockets at Byakko." The one who told me that was Reimei Kaho, vice-president of the largest and most illustrious rocket club of the many at our school: the ARC. She had come to notify us that we had been dissolved. There was only one way to stave off our own abolition. We had to win a rocket competition before the beginning of the second term. There were five of us. Arisa. Me. "We can make rockets at Byakko too." Ibuki Nazuna, who loved rockets like nobody else. "I want to be in your club." Michibiki Honoka, my childhood friend who loved to play tricks on others. And, finally, Kaho, who had made so much trouble for us initially. Together we tackled rocket science. We had to win a competition if we wanted our club to endure. And, even more than that, we wanted to launch a rocket that our own hands had built and see it soar toward space. The Karman line: 100km of altitude. Higher than the clear sky.

There are couple others that are nice within their genres, but outside my favorite genres games need to be at least decent to attract my attention. Clephas had a clear image of the same favorite.

Due to this problem, the National Police Agency has brought in Sojiro Sekimoto, an ex-university occultist professor who was arrested in 2012 for being involved in the death of a university student under his watch. Thanks to a distant relative in the Public Prosecutor's Office note , he was placed in the custody of the S Prefectural Police. Sekimoto and Saki team up, relying on the former's expertise to determine if Blind Man is someone trying to take advantage of the urban myth or if the paranormal really is starting to get involved. But the Blind Man case isn't the only one Saki and the police need to investigate. From there on, the duo would need to investigate other cases that may or may not tie to various urban legends.

That was five years ago, and Riku is now a full-fledged adult who is traveling all over Japan to “help” the people in need with this strange artifact. Despite Ren’s words that he cannot “change what has already happened”, Riku was determined to prove her wrong, and used the power of the clock for years… with no success. As he arrived in another town looking for a place to stay while he works to “help others”, an apple rolls down from the hill. He is only able to catch one as many others passes him by, and even if he uses the clock to wind back time to see if he can catch any more than one, the apples defy physics and he ends up only being able to catch just one apple. The owner of the apples, Shino, then comes to thank him for his help. To Riku’s surprise, the girl is stunningly similar to the person who once Riku loved, and hiding his surprise, he somehow receives the girl’s help to get used to the new town.

Taizou told him that the building is blessed by the god of marriage. He was expecting to be surrounded by beautiful women, but in reality, there were only ‘girls who will become beautiful women’. Every day, he completed his managerial duties while shutting himself in his room. One day, he met a mysterious thing while doing cleaning: the (self-proclaimed) patron god of the apartment, Tama! It warned him that its powers have dwindled from being shut in for so long and at this rate, disasters will befall those who live in the apartment. To help it recover its powers, he must fulfill three conditions: do not neglect the management and maintenance of the apartment, strengthen relationships with the tenants, and do not let anyone move out of the building.
