February 2009 Eroge Releases

February 1, 2009 at 6:17 pm 13 comments

This month does not have many big name titles aside from Lapis lazuli’s Areas and August’s Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle-. Let’s hope there aren’t as many releases pushed back like in January (My delicious fryable heart!!!!). I am curious about how the reviews for Cross Days and its accessories will be.




Note: This post contains mature content. All links will be 18+. Some videos are ecchi, but should be relatively clean unless stated otherwise.

Devils Devel Concept


Company: 暁WORKS (Akatsuki WORKS)
Release date: February 26, 2009
Comments: Not only does the OP remind me of Lass’ 11eyes, but the story is similar too. The character design is ok with the exception of the heads, which seem to be a bit too small. I’m not that interested in dark eroge much, so I’ll pass on this for now and see what others think about it.

Areas ~Sora ni Utsusu Kimi to no Sekai~


Company: Lapis lazuli
Game site: Areas ~空に映すキミとのセカイ~
Release date: February 27, 2009 Delayed to March 27, 2009
Comments: Lapis lazuli’s first game, Areas is awfully cute and will be one I will be picking up for this month. Along with huge eyes and lots of moe appeal, I’m sure that the stories will be sweet and lighthearted. However, aside from clean art, there’s nothing that really makes this game special and stand out from other eroge set in a school setting. Reminds me of ALcot’s FairChild.

Cross Days


Company: オーバーフロー (Overflow)
Game site: Cross Days (クロスデイズ)
Release date: February 27, 2009 Delayed to April 24, 2009
Comments: Nice Boat enthusiasts will definitely be looking forward to this sequel parallel story to their previous work School Days. I wrote a short post about this back in October. There are so many questions one can ask. Will it be less than 8gb? How many bad ends are there? Will Makoto Yuuki Makoto screw every girl in sight? Is it one size fits all?

Like a Butler


Company: AXL (アクセル)
Game site: Like a Butler
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: I don’t know what’s up with this maid and butler obsession lately. In this story, our protagonist Kazuki grants childhood friend Kanade’s 1216th wish of being her butler since it is a requirement for her to get into the ultra-special girls’ school that she beat out 84,999 other people to get into. It has a very similar feel to AXL’s previous game Koi Suru Otome to Shugo no Tate, except without the dead ends. I get a good feel from this game, so I’ll be trying it out.

Kagirohi ~Shakukei~


Company: Shelf
Game site: かぎろひ~勺景~
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: This is Shelf’s debut work. I find it extremely frustrating that their site loads extremely slow for me. However, the OP is nicely done, even if it seemed to like showing tentacles a lot. I am very curious about Ajisai’s eye color changing constantly along with her telling Aoi “Let’s play a game”, upon which the surroundings completely changed. There is definitely a lot of supernatural and mystery involved here.

Sarasara Sasara


Company: アトリエかぐや (Atelier Kaguya)
Game site: さらさらささら
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: Hiroki is gifted with a god’s ability to communicate with mikos in his dreams. There’s nothing really that strikes me as special, even the OP didn’t tell us much about the story. I’ll pass on this one.

School Five ~Itsutsu no Himitsu no Monogatari~


Company: DisAbel
Game site: すく~るふぁいぶ ~五つの秘密の物語~
Release date: February 27, 2009 Delayed to March 27, 2009
Comments: Everything about this game seems to be copying off minori’s ef -a fairy tale of the two-, from the outfits to character designs, from the pastel-style backgrounds to the separate storylines for each heroine. However, no company can come close to duplicating minori’s gorgeous art, astounding opening theme sequences or intricate storylines.

Vanish! ~Oppai no Kieta Oukoku~


Game site: ばにしゅ!~おっぱいの消えた王国~
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: The plot revolves our protagonist who is a top magic school who desires to use magic to do H stuff. After last month’s Pai-Touch!, this one is the opposite as there’s some ‘disappearance’ of breasts. It seems like this one will be full of comedy and ecchi scenes. I’m not a fan of AliceSoft’s character designs though, but I’m sure that there’ll be those that will love it.

Fuwari Complex


Company: 戯画 (GIGA)
Game site: ふわりコンプレックス
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: New release after being pushed back from January. I still don’t understand Japanese mahjong.

Warning: Some HCG with censorship. Oh wait, it’s already showing.



Company: しとろんソフト (Citron Soft)
Game site: みここ
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: This is the first game from Citron Soft, the sister brand of C:Drive. All heroines are mikos and our protagonist Takeru desires some tendering loving. It is said that couples blessed by the resident god will enjoy lots of ichaicha raburabu. Hinano-chan’s cute ;o;

Tapestry -you will meet yourself-


Company: light
Game site: タペストリー -you will meet yourself-
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: Hajime is a smart and nice guy who is part of the arts and crafts club. One day he collapsed and had to stay at the hospital for a short while. He was told that he had a terminal illness and that he only had half a year to live. While scared of dying, he decides to hide the truth and live out the rest of his life in happiness because he doesn’t want his friends to be sad as well. I like the premise of this game and they even have some system changes too. For one, it uses a wide-screen instead of the normal size. In addition, the dialogue uses a manga-like layout, with round speech bubbles and square thought boxes. There are a lot of tachi-e and the expressions are really funny. I like their site a lot too, so this is definitely on my play list.


Fukai Kiri no Naka de


Company: カリカチュア (caricature)
Game site: 深霧の中で…~Fukai Kirino Nakade…~
Release date: February 27, 2009 Delayed to March 27, 2009
Comments: This is ex-doujin group caricature’s first work since turning official. The story is about living together in the mist-covered hills with a bunch of girls from the archery club. Sounds like an ideal place for romance to heat up. The website still needs more info and CGs.

Dareka no Tame ni Dekiru Koto ~Innocent Identity~


Company: Fermi
Game site: 誰かのために出来ること~Innocent Identity~
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: Fermi is a new division of GIGA and this is their first eroge. It’s your standard school life ADV with average characters. I don’t like the OP song.

Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle-


Company: オーガスト (August)
Game site: 夜明け前より瑠璃色な -Moonlight Cradle-
Release date: February 27, 2009
Comments: This is another version of the original title, with Estel and Midori who were introduced in the PS2 version, along with new stories and H scenes. I still haven’t played the original, which I heard it was decent.

Micchi’s Top 3 for this month

  1. Tapestry -you will meet yourself-
  2. Like a Butler
  3. Areas ~Sora ni Utsusu Kimi to no Sekai~

    Still, playing, Yumina.. T_T
    At this rate, Yumina might even force its way through february timeslot. O_o
    I’ll be getting Cross Boats Days and Cabbage Moonlight Cradle, though. Devils Devel Concept and Like a Butler might be interesting too.

    I’m never going to escape this guilty pleasure, ever!

    Goddamn, I finally received La Campanella but I’m still sucked in ExE. I’m literally swamped in an unrelenting torrent of new releases. I’ll probably grab Sarasara Sasara, Mikoko, and Fukai Kiri no Naka de because I like mikos and Tasuku Iizuki art. Man, and I used to I think I was a story-centric eroge player.

  • 3. Micchi  |  February 3, 2009 at 1:28 pm

    @Kresnik: I totally forgot about cabbage. Never going to escape, but… do you really want to? XD

    @m3rry: I still think having a nice story is good, but most likely certain charas and moe traits will draw you to certain games. And if there’s one that exploits your weakness, well… have fun and enjoy it lol

    Also, Fukai Kiri no Naka de and Cross Days have been pushed back.

  • 4. Kresnik  |  February 4, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    If August wants to entertain us more, they really should insert the cabbage joke inside.

    Cross Days lol..
    To think that I believe that it will come out on schedule. Maybe I should make a poll to guess how big the patch will be.. :P

  • 5. Micchi  |  February 5, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Well, Areas got delayed too. March is sure looking packed now…

  • 6. Algester  |  February 7, 2009 at 9:05 am

    well least we could have more time to devote on moonlight cradle hehe i wonder if tatsuya would still go emo on feena on her route well for my list i have mikoko and sarasara sasara just cause its AKBY and moar well… its AKBY so we can expect what makes them best

  • 7. Micchi  |  February 7, 2009 at 10:44 am

    @Algester: Sarasara Sasara‘s OP is vintage AKBY XD

  • 8. m3rryweather  |  February 8, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    Considering Prima Stella’s OP, I”m surprised that Sarasara Sasara’s doesn’t even have ero in it.

    Goddamn, March will be the HD killing month for me.

  • 9. Micchi  |  February 8, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    @m3rry: Actually, the vid I posted was the non-ero promo version. The OP from Getchu is basically the same song with ALL ero. XD

  • 10. ETERNAL  |  February 10, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    That School Five game made me lol. The first thing I thought of when I saw the picture was “they’re making another ef game?”

  • 11. Micchi  |  February 22, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    @ETERNAL: Ya, it’s so similar… Anyways, they pushed it back a month.

    And, I also hate YouTube a lot. They keep on removing videos. Like WTF is wrong with Tapestry’s OP. /rage

  • 12. simongl81  |  September 16, 2009 at 8:24 am

    your links are dead…

    • 13. Micchi  |  September 16, 2009 at 11:11 pm

      Youtube is stupid and suspends accounts often. I occasionally fix the ones on my channel instead of on here since it happens so much. I’ll fix the links this time, but I won’t check it constantly for dead links.
