A Walk Down Memory Lane – Route 3

March 15, 2009 at 9:01 pm 11 comments

There’s been a definite spike of high quality games produced beginning in 2006, with the number of memorable OPs also increasing. Since there are so many OPs to show and games to list, this post covers the period of 2006 to 2007. The final post will cover last year (2008).



ef – the first tale. (minori) – “Yuukyuu no Tsubasa”

I liked this OP the most out of all the Makoto Shinkai & minori games. From the intro to the animation, it’s a brilliant piece of art.

Da Capo II (CIRCUS) – “Da Capo II ~Asaki Yumemishi Kimi to~”

I think DCII was probably better than DC. I felt the stories were better, although some were a bit overdramatic.

Nanatsuiro☆Drops (UnisonShift) – “Koisuru☆Fluorite”

First love has encompassed me. This is the main reason I follow UnisonShift Blossom. The manga which follows Sumomo’s route is my favorite. It’s such an uplifting feeling.

Neko Kawaigari! (13cm) – “dote up a cat”

I don’t think I’ve seen another OP that is as cute but so wrong at the same time. It’s like a lesson in Engrish.

Harukoi*Otome ~Otome no Sono de Gokigenyou.~ (BaseSon) – “Seishun*Ouka*”

HaruOto is linked to Koihime since Kazuto attended the same school. So many SD CGs…

Bra-ban! -The bonds of melody- (YuzuSoft) – “Beautiful Harmony”

The game that turned me into a devoted YuzuSoft follower. It’s short, light-hearted and generally well done. And it has Ebi! 「エビというな!」

Muv-Luv Alternative (âge) – “Asu e no Houkou”

This has got to be one of the most epic eroge OPs ever made. I suddenly have an urge to go play this now.

Really? Really! (Navel) – “Remember memories”

Spinoff of SHUFFLE! which follows Kaede’s path. Rin going all Phoenix Wright is awesome.

Yotsunoha (Haikuo Soft) – “Yotsunoha”

I fell in love with this song and also the fact that all the girls are osananajimis. Nono-tan!!!

Happiness! Re-lucks (Windmill) – “Happy Day!”

Happiness’ fandisk. It is notable for one thing: Jun has a route.

Boy Meets Girl (FrontWing) – “Kimi ni Futatabi Aeta Kiseki”

The character art by Shintarou was what caught my eye. He then went to Clochette to help with Kamipani!

Other games during this year:

  • Aozora no Mieru Oka (feng)
  • Baldr Bullet Revellion (GIGA)
  • Colorful Aquarium (eufonie)
  • Figu@Mate (Escu:de)
  • Fossette -Cafe au Le Ciel Bleu- (GIGA)
  • Gore Screaming Show (Black Cyc)
  • H2O -Footprints in the Sand- (Makura)
  • Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no (PULLTOP)
  • Ina☆Koi ~Oinari-sama to Motemote no Tatari~ (Whirlpool)
  • Kanojo-tachi no Ryuugi (130cm)
  • Kimi no Koe ga Kikoeru (AXL)
  • Konna Ko ga Itara Boku wa Mou…!! (AKABEi SOFT2)
  • Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku o (GIGA)
  • Megachu! (FrontWing)
  • Moshimo Ashita ga Harenaraba (Palette)
  • Prism Ark (Pajama Soft)
  • Scarlett (NekonekoSoft)
  • School Project (Atelier Kaguya)
  • Sengoku Rance (AliceSoft)
  • Shuumatsu Kanojo Gensou Alicematic (CaramelBox)
  • Summer Days (Overflow)
  • Triptych (ALcot)
  • true tears (La’cryma, all ages)
  • Wanko to Kurasou (ivory)


Ashita no Kimi to Au Tame ni (Purple Software) – “TIME”

Just amazing. I’d say this was one of the best OPs in 2007.

Arpeggio ~Kimi-iro no Melody~ (SIESTA) – “Boku no Sekai”

I actually found the system layout for Arpeggio pretty nice, along with the art.

Empty X Embryo (YuzuSoft) – “Trust in me”

I’m gonna end up posting all of YuzuSoft’s OPs.

Koisuru Otome to Shugo no Tate (AXL) – “shield nine”

This was the one that got me into AXL’s hijinks. It gives true meaning to dead end.

Koihime†Musou (BaseSon) – “Souten no Mukoe e” & “Hφwling Sφul”

I didn’t get very far in the original game, but now I’m playing Shin Koihime Musou (2008). I know that it changes a lot of things from Romance of the Three Kingdoms, but you can’t go wrong with a cast of moe charas. Zhuge Liang as a shy loli? Shuri-chan!!!! >w<b

Da Capo II: Spring Celebration (CIRCUS) – “Happy my life ~Thank you for everything!!~”

DCII‘s fandisk. I love the song a lot. And hey, it’s DC, so of course I love it. Mmm Yume-chan…

Little Busters! (key) – “Little Busters!”

The original all-ages version. Little Busters! Ecstasy came out in 2008. I can’t wait for the anime to come out.

Other games during this year:

  • √after and another (Makura)
  • Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka (feng)

    I don’t know of it is just me but at this point after watching so many OPs they are all blending together. Making some sort of eroge OP stew in my head where all the characters and songs merge together. I no longer remember which is which anymore.

    On the plus side there are a few that I had wanted to play which I was reminded of. As well as a few I felt may be worth the time to at least check out. Then again my hard drive is already crying…

  • 2. m3rrryweather  |  March 15, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    I noticed that seagulls appear to be popular in quite a number of OP’s.

    And is it really called Fluorite? I always thought it was Flow Light.

  • 3. Micchi  |  March 15, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    @Zen: I didn’t even send you all the ones I saw. There sure are a lot of common themes. I love RMG’s creations a lot. They also did Tapestry‘s. Work that HD. Work it good.

    @m3rry: From the official site, it’s flourite… which isn’t a word. So I assume they meant fluorite instead.

    Btw, are you a pirate, since you got an extra R in your name. XD

    I found a Sumomo supporter! Calling all Nadeshiko lover to the site immediately! We will recapture Tsuwabuki-kun from their grasps!

  • 6. Algester  |  March 16, 2009 at 7:07 am

    hmmm regarding of ef yep… the ending is epicly SAD DAM IT i mean for all yuuko went through she gets THAT!!! OHH!!! Y_Y @_@ and koitate well after all AXL=bad ends+(traps [made them famous])+good ends+humor and all AXL games must have bad ends its not AXL without it

  • 7. accany  |  March 16, 2009 at 7:49 am

    I miss dies irae… or more accurately it’s theme. I always loved the dark feeling of dies irae =D

  • 8. Micchi  |  March 16, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    @Kresnik: You will never take Tsuwabuki-kun from Sumomo!!

    @Algester: Most definitely. For me, AXL’s selling point is the humor and the bad ends.

  • 9. m3rryweather  |  March 16, 2009 at 5:27 pm

    Did I hear the call to arms!? I’ve got the bondage chains all oiled up and ready! Tsuwabuki’s going DOWN (on Nadeshiko)!

  • 10. Kresnik  |  March 16, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    Too bad Micchi, I got the fieriest Nadeshiko fan with me.. D:

    If you plan to play Muluv Alt, make sure you do it during a long break. The game will absolutely take over the next 100 hours of your waking life. Be prepared for extreme mental stress, huge mood swings, and emotion overload. This is a life changing experience.

    Some non-spoilerish notes. This game isn’t in the normal ero-game category, but more like a super epic movie that just happen to contain love scene. This game requires deep understanding of Japanese, also best to know some Japanese history, and have some physics background. Lastly, this game is so overwhelming that any game you play after it will simply feel flat. Be prepared for the thrill of your life.
