July 2010 Eroge Releases

July 1, 2010 at 12:00 am 31 comments

This month looks particularly sweet with an abundance of cute heroines and fandisks for popular titles. In particular, I’m really looking forward to Sugar+Spice2 and the final chapter of Koihime: Moeshouden. Many new companies make their debuts this month, so you might want to try one of them out!

After being so “Grumpy” last month I tried really hard to be nice for this month. However the eroge companies sure failed to make it easy on me, so I mostly gave up as it required far too much effort to find good things to say for July. As an apology one of these months I will be completely nice and happy about everything. Now if they would just give me a month with a few decent games that I could perhaps curb my bad mood long enough to write at least one happy post. Orihime and Hikoboshi please give me better eroge!

executor script

Company: Triangle
Game site: エグゼクタースクリプト
Release date: July 2, 2010
In a world where some people possess magic-like special abilities, Yamahito is a student who can use a power called ‘executor’. Together with his friend Shin they cause a commotion and one day, they were defeated by a girl named Primity Lumina, sent by the international organization Aproca to protect against ill-use of abilities. A few days later, Shin starts to use his powers to destroy the town to conquer the world. Primity Lumina approaches him to request his help in defeating Shin, while Shin also wanted him to join his side. Which he give in to the dark side or fight for justice alongside a cute bishoujo?

As expected from Triangle, we have henshin bishoujos and lots of H. Pretty much what Hemi wants. I’ll be passing on this, but if I were to play, I’d definitely stay with the bishoujos.

He is going to give into the dark side, duh. Who would want to live in a world with mahou shoujo..? I would join Shin without hesitation, only difference is… I would. Not. Fail. Even though it is obvious I have less than zero interest in anything of this genre I personally feel this game is bad even by magical girl standards. First lets mention something rather obvious, the silly sailor moon wannabe defeats the protagonist and his friend together right at the start, yet why does she need his help to do the same later? Next up on the list of issues is the feeling that there is not enough silliness for a mahou shoujo storyline. This is to say it almost gives the impression of an attempt at a serious action plotline until you look a bit deeper. With such a combination the contrast between both elements only brings harm to one another in my opinion, leading to a game that fails to deliver in every respect story wise. Then again I did not look particularly deep, as anything that even so much as hints at mahou shoujo / senshi is a lost cause in my book.

Were you forced to watch re-runs of Sailor Moon when you were a kid? I don’t understand this profound hatred of mahou shoujos.

Bad stories, annoying characters, tons of nonsensical elements, and the worst of all everything revolves around little girl fantasies, as I am not a little girl I can’t say I much enjoy reading about My Little Pony or some pretty pretty princess. All the more so when a game includes ero as everything becomes centered around tentacles and torn outfits on little girls, it is a pedophiles utopia.

Tasogare no Sinsemilla

Company: あっぷりけ (Applique)
Game site: 黄昏のシンセミア
Release date: July 22, 2010
There’s a legend about an angel’s robe in the scenic town of Minakami-mura, in the middle of which there is a large shrine. An university student, Kousuke, visits his mother’s hometown during the summer break to do some part-time and reacquaints with some old friends while also meeting some new ones. However, their normal lives are altered by the presence of a mythic drug that can cause living beings to become abnormal. This is the local story of the monster named Yamawaro.

Applique’s previous title Concerto Note was extremely well-received, so I have high expectations from Sinsemilla. The notion of a drug and local legends do remind me of Higurashi a little bit. The art and OP are nice and there’s a true imouto and a imouto-like cousin at the center of the plot! Shouko is really cute indeed, but there’s probably more to her than meets the eye…

While I do like the character designs from what I have seen so far, I feel their selection of setting and plot leaves a bit to be desired. Yes I also see the Higurashi parallel which further increases my wariness, however there is some hope here as the mentally deficient writer responsible for Higurashi is not involved. Ignoring the forcible setup for events, there is a lot of room for character growth when there are pre existing relationships to help smooth things along early on, and help provide impact when secrets are revealed. The usage of the dress or robe does make me question how they plan to fit that into multiple routes as the implication is it could be used by anyone since it is clothing. At the same time a simple choice of whoever you pick ending up being the solution to the drugs and monster problem would be a bit… well shallow to say the least. I suppose given their track record and the potential I will assume a cautiously optimistic outlook towards Sinsemilla, lets hope they don’t fall off the tightrope act that is their plot.

Green Strawberry

Game site: Green Strawberry
Release date: July 23, 2010 Delayed to September 24, 2010
Spring has arrived and Hiroki prepares to transfers to the prestigious Sennosha private school. However, he is always unlucky and due to illness, he ends up starting school two weeks late. When he arrives at the dorm, he’s told that he no longer has a room. Standard ‘unlucky’ protagonist who ends up in a promising position to end up with some girl. The plot just seems shallow, just like the art itself. Even Sakurako can’t save this one for me.

This plot setup is getting really old, especially given how common it has been in one variation or another over the course of the last few months. When cuteness fails to catch Micchi’s attention you know there is some kind of major flaw with a game, well either that or maybe Onii chan is growing up.. and learning there are more to games than just cute characters?

There’s cute charas and then there’s really cute charas!


Company: ROOT
Game site: PARA-SOL
Release date: July 23, 2010
New release date after being pushed back from June. In the future where cyborgs and androids are near reality, strange rumors about dragons and werewolves started to spread. A girl wrote an e-mail to someone: “Save Our Ship”. This place is the world-famous research school city Tsukuba, a mix of skyscrapers and farms. On the outskirts of the city lived two sisters whose parents had passed away. One stormy night, a man knocked on the door. Who is he? Why does he carry an umbrella no matter the weather? Can they become like a true family? The girl received a reply: “wilco”. I’ve run out of things to comment on this after all the delays. The protagonist Kojirou is quite the ikemen though.

Rather than attempt to decipher the gibberish which a summary of Para Sol amounts to, I think it would be more productive to contemplate whether or not the game will actually be released come July 23rd. Personally given past precedent I am hoping for yet another delay in the hopes they will release more info that somehow allows us to make some sense of this game.

Gekitama! ~Seiryou Gakuen Engekibu~

Company: カシオペア (Cassiopeia)
Game site: げきたま!~青陵学園演劇部~
Release date: July 23, 2010
This is the debut game by Cassiopeia, composed of the staff from now-defunct TAIL WIND. Ikumi transfers to Seiryou Gakuen, situated at the foot of Mount Fuji, in the second school term. He is approached by drama club members Kikka, Rin and Yurina, who force him to join their club, which is short on members and is in danger of being closed. Even though he has never acted in a play before, they were all highly expecting him to help out. Then suddenly, something strange happened and he was possessed by the spirit of a general from the Sengoku! Will the play at the school fair be able to go smoothly now!?

It’s nice to see the TAIL WIND staff back together. This should be a comedy-centric title, although not to the extent of ApRicoT’s works. With Ikumi being such a shota, it’s natural that he is so easily forced into the club. I wouldn’t be surprised if they made him dress up as a girl either.

Why is it that drama clubs are so popular for club closing plotlines, I can only assume it is due to no one caring about drama clubs, which begs the question of why they think the reader would be interested in the club…  Even without the overused drama club there is almost nothing going for this game, the addition of a shota being possessed by a general does little to save the premise of the game from being forgettable at best. Perhaps the only positive I can think of for this game is that there is no Nagisa to further ruin the game. If you happen to be a masochist who longs to be a little boy who is taken advantage of by the girls around him then have fun with Gekitama.

Kono Uta ga Owattara -When this song is over-

Company: hourglass
Game site: この歌が終わったら -When this song is over-
Release date: July 23, 2010 Delayed to August 6, 2010
This is the first game by hourglass. With graduation fast approaching, Motonaga is told by his classmate and love interest Mizuku that she has been called back for a second audition for Production Chaos Promotion along with his imouto Yura. She had applied for it because she likes singing and wanted to make a career out of it. He decides to support her. Both of them pass the audition, along with another cool girl Asuka, and they form a trio called Primo Amore. Motonoga wants to help them more and starts working part-time as the manager’s assistant. The producer decides to shoot their first PV at a quiet scenic spot named Ayashino, which is far away from the city and is accessible only via one road. However, strange things start happening….

They labeled this as a ‘juvenile horror ADV’, although it really looks like a nukige from the cover. They say there’s no NTR (netorare) in this, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on that one. However, it seems like there’ll be plenty of bad ends. On the plus side, the art by Kumatora Tatsumi (Ama Ane) is nice. Too bad it’s used in a game like this.

This game sounds innocent from the summary but honestly I really am unable to get past the cover which cannot possibly be innocent no matter how you try to cover that up. I am so confused about whether I should be kind about my assumptions or not when it comes to this game. The lack of NTR thankfully gives the game some hope so I suppose I will attempt to be nice for once and say the plot itself is not too bad though everything centers around the protagonist too easily with him already knowing two of the three girls.

Ok, I tried but honestly other than the artwork the game looks really bad, whenever a cover shows off that degree of H you can be assured there will be little left to the imagination whenever the opportunity presents itself. Furthermore the inclusion of the idol factor feels as though it was made as a way to combine a darker story with idol moe H scenes. Throw in the closed circle for some extra points against the game and when it is all brought together what is left amounts to a CG set with extra long captions.

It’s cream!

What kind?

Beauty cream.

And just where did this beauty cream on an upside down naked idol’s breasts come from?

Play the game and find out. ^_~

I would rather be on the receiving end of Shinobu bukkake.


Company: アトリエかぐや P-ch (Atelier Kaguya P-ch)
Game site: クラ☆クラ CLASSY☆CRANBERRY’S
Release date: July 23, 2010
This is the first title by new Atelier Kaguya brand P-ch. Rei is the only son of the world famous Honda Zaibatsu. His famous and genius parents are regularly away, so he enjoys his peaceful days at the school. The school which he attends is extremely high-class, so the majority of the students come from wealthy families. However, some commoners attend too, sponsored by scholarships. One day, he saved one of the commoners, Miyu, and became close to her. There is a legendary ‘Advent Festival’, where there is a school ball attended by all students. A pair of students, the ‘prince’ and ‘princess’, are chosen to be at the center of this ball. It is not only a great honour, but it is said that the chosen two will marry and live happily together. Naturally, Rei was chosen as the prince, but since there was difficulty in selecting a princess, the school chairman entrusted the decision of selecting the princess to him.

It’s Atelier Kaguya. Expect lots of H, but it will be refined H with ojousamas. I’m sure some people are drooling already. The SD art is somewhat amusing, but something about the hair looks weird. Also, it looks like a cross between an eroge and an otome game. Rei, choose Kurumi! I don’t care if she’s a subchar! Do it!

And just when you think eroge concepts just cannot possibly get any worse you stumble upon this little gem of insanity. There is about as much depth to this game as there is an inflatable kiddie pool, the (And I use the word in the loosest possible sense here) plot amounts to “Hey click on the girl you want to screw” in a “classy” setting. Goes to show class is not something you can fake, as the people responsible for travesty of a game are about the furthest thing from it. I would rather be a hobo than suffer a game as tasteless as this.

I repeat: It’s Atelier Kaguya. (ハァハァ・・・)

Gothic Delusion

Company: Lose
Game site: ゴスデリ
Release date: July 23, 2010
This is the debut title for Lose, having gone official from doujin circle PBP. One moonlit night, new teacher Takamichi has a trick played on him on his way home by a girl Lo who says she is not a human and had been looking for him. It seems that she was being chased by someone. He thought that her claims were totally absurd, but not wanting to leave her alone in the middle of the night, decided to take her to the nearest koban.

… where he was taken in as a suspected pedophile. Honestly, Lo is so loli it’s criminal. Kud Wafter is not even close to this. The official site is well-done, but I feel that the usage of loli characters in such a setting is too striking, with the eyes excessively round. Hopefully even though the artwork is still somewhat doujin-tier, the scenario might be worth getting the game for. The visual novel system layout resembles Lost Script’s games.

Another tried and true plotline or if you prefer to be mean about it, a half assed rehash of settings and characters that we have all seen a hundred times before. The character being chased because of whatever reason ends up with a fated encounter with Mr protagonist leading to their involvement in something the rest of the world is oblivious to is starting to get a bit annoying. I realize it is not easy and does take a considerable amount of effort to come up with something that at the very least feels refreshing even if it plays out the same way. But considering it is their job to do so I find my ability to forgive shortcuts waning. The change from doujin to professional a company really needs to have greater impact with their storyline or else they will end up being washed away by the Da Capos of the eroge world.

As a side note, although Lo is definitely loli there is no way she is anywhere near as bad as Kud, I would however arrest both guys for being pedophiles.

Albatross Koukairoku

Company: raiL-soft
Game site: 信天翁航海録(アルバトロスこうかいろく)
Release date: July 23, 2010
Aboard the Albatross is an odd captain and an equally crazy crew. With no map in hand, they sail to unknown islands, meet ghost ships and cross paths with giant monster fish. No one knows where they are heading… including the captain. But they still all stay together since there’s no other place for them. Since raiL-soft’s games are quite unique, usually you either love them or don’t care at all about them. And I’m in the latter camp. Even with a comedy/mystery, I wish they’d give us more details. One interesting thing about the game is that it has a ‘variable read’ system where you can change the text direction and size.

What to say about Albatross, it is definitely unique, and this counts for a lot in my book. For some reason I feel inexplicably drawn to this game, the art style, setting, and characters all combine to give a vague yet somehow enjoyable feeling to the game. I would like to see more games breaking from the school drama mold without falling into one of the other cookie cutter game designs. Well anyway, I am looking forward to finding out if this game will be as fun as it looks.

Also for some strange reason I find the captain cute.

Shin Koihime Musou ~Moeshouden~

Company: BaseSon
Game site: 真・恋姫†無双~萌将伝~
Release date: July 23, 2010
Moeshouden is the final game in the Koihime series. In this fandisk, there’s no more fighting among the factions. Instead, all 52 heroines fight for Kazuto’s love. Or maybe he can settle for a harem in the true sense of the word. I won’t be greedy – just give me Hinari, Shuri, Tanpopo, Nenene, Sui and Touka! Hawawa~ I hope that this time around they won’t group heroines together and have one ending story for each heroine, even if it means it’ll be short. In Shin Koihime, there were way too many 3P.

I expect roughly 5 routes of 10P. Koihime is fast becoming the new DC, which is kind of sad as I perhaps strangely would have preferred BaseSon to have gone the Circus route and focused on splinter games with more details, perhaps faction based games. No matter how good your characters are if you cannot pay enough attention to them their appeal is lost in what amounts to a harem based nukige.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 10P…

Well here’s your chance.


Company: ソフトハウスキャラ (SofthouseChara)
Release date: July 30, 2010
Dierks is a perverted adventurer entered a labyrinth known as the Maou’s forest and was defeated by the maou himself. But taking pity on him, the maou kindly recruited him as part of this demon army. Given a second chance, Dierks has two goals: to rise in the ranks of the demon army, and to defeat and have sex with those girls who come to attack the maou.

Following the flop that was Shinobiryuu, SofthouseChara attempts a 3D RPG this time around. It probably won’t be anywhere as popular as Wizard’s Climber. Well, I guess if you’re in such a opportunistic position, you would do the same. I know Zen would since he’d join the dark side any day. What I’m confused about is why the maou didn’t just finish him off. That’s a flag for demise right there! Maou aren’t kind and sit around drinking tea with others!

Can’t really blame Dierks for his choices, I would have done the same, not only does he get to live but he gets first dibs on all the fresh girls he can catch. I do admit to having a certain affinity for perverted protagonists though, as they are a lot more entertaining than the typically boring nice guy whom I am sure the majority of eroge players are sick of playing. Not much of a plotline here worth mentioning however, as seems to be the case with many ero RPGs. Well if you enjoy simple RPGs and lots of H scenes involving the forcing of helpless girls one way or another without much of those annoying stories to get in your way, I would have to say this may be your game of the month.


Company: チュアブルソフト (Chuable Soft)
Game site: Sugar+Spice2
Release date: July 30, 2010
What are girls made of? Sugar and spice, and all that’s nice. So what are girls in love made of?

Hibiki moves in with his older sister after his father went abroad for business. However, his cousin Fuuka also lived there and he worried about being able to get along with her since they are unfamiliar with each other. However, they get along nicely. One day, Fuuka asks him to come shopping with her and a friend since they need help carrying bags. He agrees, but when he arrives, he meets a senpai who he admires, Ginga. She asks him why he’s here and what he wants to do. Realizing that he doesn’t have a goal or a dream to pursue, Hibiki decides to begin living with a new purpose.

Basically, this is the same as Sugar+Spice with a different cast as well as some system changes. You don’t have to play the previous game to enjoy this one. The theme of this series is understanding girls, so an important part is the confession system, where the player can confess to a girl and await her response. Will she accept or will she turn you down? It hurts to be turned down, but if you did the right things, maybe you’ll be rewarded. It almost feels like a dating sim in ADV format, based on affection points accrued from events. Either way, really cute art by Ginta and adorable heroines set in a truly pure love setting means I’m definitely playing this! Fuuka-chan… hau~ omochikaeri~!!!

Well I did not play the first one, and most likely won’t play the second either. I find it rather ironic that there is an eroge about “Understanding girls” as 2D girls are just about the furthest thing from any real understanding, that extra dimension makes all the difference it seems. The concept of a confession system is as Micchi pointed out very similar to dating sims, further complicating the issue of this game being too shallow to support the themes in use. I take back my earlier comments about Micchi Onii chan growing up, there has been no change when such a game hooks Onii chan with cute bait.

What do you mean? Understanding 2D girls is more than halfway there! Maybe if you raise her affection enough, she’ll come through the monitor to be with you!

Pretty sure that only works with desperate imoutos.

It does!? Awesome!

Unfortunately for you, they also only get sad and lonely ends.

Confession system:

Vestige -Yaiba ni Nokoru wa Kimi no Omokage-

Company: ALcot ハニカム (ALcot Honey Comb)
Game site: Vestige(ヴェスティージ) ―刃に残るは君の面影―
Release date: July 30, 2010
Kurou was reading a book in the library when he saw his older sister Shizu fall from the roof. Fortunately, she wasn’t hurt badly. Kuro and their osananajimi Ruri are happy that she’s fine and don’t ask her what happened. Later, he finds out from his classmate Wakaba that she was fighting against some mysterious men. It is because they are after him, as he possesses the elixir of immortality ‘ochimizu’, so he decides to take part in the battle as well. This is a story of battling heroines and it should be a good one. There’s even an onee-san for you, Zen!

Boring. None of it is the least bit interesting, not the characters, not the setting, not the artwork, and surely not the plot. Far too simple to be worth reading in my opinion as unlike Onii chan I don’t play games just because they have an older sister route. Really the problems I have with the game stem from the school location, lack of interest in the main character and the people after him, and a complete lack of interest in the cast of heroines. Not much about the game stands out as special even though I have a good track record with the company I just cannot get into this story at all.

Ichaicha Communication Plus

Company: TEATIME
Game site: いちゃコミュ+~いちゃいちゃコミュニケーション プラス~
Release date: July 30, 2010
This is an extended version of TEATIME’s download-version of IchaComu. The main difference is more outfits and H scene variety. Ya, I pretty much included this only cuz Chako-chan is too cute. お・に・い・ちゃん!だい~すきっ!(*´д`*)

And I will pretty much ignore this for the same reasons.

Steal My Heart ~Rhapsody of moonlight~

Company: ぱれっと (Palette)
Game site: すてぃーるMyはぁと~Rhapsody of moonlight~
Release date: July 30, 2010
Akihito enjoys his peaceful school life, but one night, he met a mysterious thief and his world suddenly changed. All the unexplainable events and environment changes made him totally confused. What fate awaits him in the future? While this is Palette’s first game since Mashifoni, none of the scenario writers are the same. I am however very interested in loli transfer student Charlotte, who looks cute on the exterior but is actually sharp-tongued and scheming. But seeing her crying scene in the OP, I just wanna hug her so badly~ >_<

Am I the only person who is sane enough to realize how much this feels like a parallel to magical girl stories? I really have a hard time caring about the poor guys fate anymore when the game takes what could have been an interesting plot then spills pink hearts and flowers all over it. Of course Micchi is overcome with desire to molest the loli, oh I am sooo very surprised by that.. Anyway my own personal grudges and whining aside, I fail to see why they even bothered to emphasize something more than just a school romance drama, the impression I get is that the writers are far more suited to the standard school romance. As a result everything else feels like gimmicks duct taped to the story for a gimmicky appeal with a wider range of moe.

It’s not molesting. It’s tender loving.

Whatever politically correct term you use I am sure the police would disagree with you..

Hey, she’s not in the same tier as Lo and Kud…

True enough, I have to give you that much as at least even you have some scruples.


Company: TOPCAT
Game site: ななプリ。
Release date: July 30, 2010
New release date after being delayed from June. Enor lives by himself in a corner of the Gullfoss continent. One day, he came upon a fallen girl by a nearby riverside and took her home to take care of her. Her name is Katarina and she is actually the seventh princess Edelweiss’ personal knight. They were pursued by attackers and now the princess is missing, so Katarina asks Enor to pretend to be the princess. So, he dresses up as a girl and goes on a journey together with her. It’s noteworthy that this is scenario writer Yamaasa Moto’s first work. Fifth princess Patricia is so cute ><

Crossdressing shota becomes the princess’s double to cover up the incompetence of her bodyguard, and so begins their epic journey across backgrounds far more stunning than the characters themselves. Of course the princess is being pursued by generic evildoers as princesses tend to be, giving the story that extra bit of zing it needs to keep from becoming too boring. Well I’ll probably give the game a chance even though I remain pessimistic about the odds of this game being any good, lets just hope it actually comes out this month.

Motto Nee, Chanto Shiyou yo!

Company: CandySoft
Game site: もっと 姉、ちゃんとしようよっ!
Release date: July 30, 2010
Souma goes to an all-boys school by himself in Hokkaido. One day, he received a call from one of his older sisters, telling him that their father had become sick and collapsed. He quickly returns to Hakkakubashi and seeing his five downcast sisters and sickly father, he decided to stay to take care of his father. Basically, if you love the onee-san archetype, this game is for you. Note however that they’re not blood related, as his real parents passed away when he was small and he was adopted into the Ichijou household. It’s kinda like Ama Ane from last month, although I had more interest in that over this. Souma isn’t comfortable with being with girls other than his older sisters, so I’m sure there’ll be lots of skinship, if you know what I mean.

Cheap attempt to cash in on onee chan fetish. The bust of the girls says a lot about the type of game it is, as does the protagonists preference along with the nature and number of your heroine selections. Feels rather like a nukige full of onee san heroines to choose from, reminds me of Nadeshiko Rambo.

What amazes me most is the 5th oldest sister looks like a first grader. And she’s supposed to be the same age as him!

What amazes me most is that you aren’t trying to molest her… yet.

… >_>

Muv-Luv Alternative Chronicles 01

Company: アージュ (âge)
Game site: マブラヴ オルタネイティヴ クロニクルズ01
Release date: July 30, 2010
A fandisk for Muv-Luv Alternative featuring director cut verisons of previously released Chicken Divers and Rain Dancers, along with a brand new Muv-Luv Unlimited The Day After, which details what happened following the end of Muv-Luv Unlimited. There’s also desktop accessories, movies and radio clips. I guess this is the first of a bunch of Muv-Luv fandisks. Goes without saying that this is recommended for those who like (or worship) the series.

Fandisk, while I did like uhh Meiya quite a bit, I found myself disliking the rest of the cast in the Muv Luv series, so I don’t think I will find much of value here.

Enbou no Felshis: Horizon of the earth and sky

Company: ninetail
Game site: 遠望のフェルシス Horizon of the earth and sky
Release date: July 30, 2010
The Emilia Republic is situated on the northeast area of the Reindil continent. In the eastern town of Felshis is Voromia National Academy, which is well-known for training adventurers. Adventurers specialize in searching for and retrieving an important resource to all nations: dragon bones. Many young people aspire to be adventurers for different reasons: to satiate their curiosity, to become rich, to follow in their ancestors’ footsteps, to envision a world they have never seen.

This is a fantasy school RPG+SLG. In the school part, you can unlock events with the heroines, change your party and equips, or accept quests. In the dungeon part, you can explore the depths of the labyrinths and accrue treasures and experience. While the art could be drawn better, this is a good old-fashioned RPG that should provide you with many hours of grinding fun.

Why does this feel like a single player MMO to me? Is it because of the emphasis on a vague and overused concept like an “Adventurer” or perhaps the gameplay which amounts to little more than farming in different locations? Either way the game feels tedious and uninspiring, the characters and artwork completely fail to impress anyone, leaving behind a withered husk ready to suck dry the life of anyone unfortunate enough to play this.

Otome Renshin Prister Fandisc ~Motto H ni Koiseyo Otome!~

Company: エスクード (Escu:de)
Game site: 乙女恋心プリスターFANDISC~もっとHに恋せよ乙女!~
Release date: July 30, 2010
This is the fandisk for Prister, with after stories for each of the 12 heroines, another stories for 6 popular subheroines, as well as a possible harem route. As the title suggests, it’ll be even more raburabu and ecchi than the main game. Of course, the simulation battles are still around for you to enjoy!

Extra fap fodder for those of you who didn’t find enough of it in the original game.

Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai AfterStory

Company: Navel
Game site: 俺たちに翼はない AfterStory
Release date: July 30, 2010
This Oretsuba fandisk has after stories for each of the 4 heroines, plus over 20 short-stories, a new OP and ED, as well as character songs and a tachi-e and scenery viewer. Also, the protagonists will be voiced except during H scenes! There needs to be more games with voiced leads.

I suppose this is more incentive to get around to completing the original game..

Sora o Aogite Kumo Takaku

Company: でぼの巣製作所 (Debo no Su)
Game site: 空を仰ぎて雲たかく
Release date: July 30, 2010
Adonis practiced under Danang to be a dragon trainer. One day, he came upon a young dragon girl Mint in the forest. She calls him papa, but it seems that she doesn’t remember anything except her own name. He takes her to his master’s house, where Danang tells her that as a dragon trainer, he was destined to meet her. They set out on a journey to discover her memories.

It’s not often that you have an action/scrolling RPG, as well as a raising simulation (4 different paths). It feels a lot like Ragnarok Battle Offline. The fighting part is a bit simplistic with just one attack button, but you can open up skills as you level up. Mint is very cute, especially in chibi form on the map view! Of course, she’s best as an oniichan-ko! And she’s voiced by Sakakibara Yui!

If it was not for the fact this is an action RPG I would be slightly more inclined to be less than civil towards the general direction of the concepts which comprise this game. However since this game is indeed an action RPG I will be more forgiving as I have yet to see anything from this genre containing even an infinitesimal approximation bearing some resemblance to a mere shadow of a story. So in all fairness lets completely ignore the story by pretending it does not exist, and move along to the gameplay, which appears… very repetitive and dull. Seems to be focused more on how to raise mint than anything else which could have been a good idea with better gameplay, character choices, and story. As is though I fail to find much of value here to make the game worth my precious time.


Yokoshima!! Pandemic

Company: Kur-Mar-Ter
Game site: 邪!! ぱんでみっく
Release date: July 30, 2010 Delayed to August 27, 2010
Rei attends Nagi Gakuen which is well-known for strange happenings. Since he was small, he has been able to sense spirits. One day, he met a mysterious girl at the abandoned old school building and many strange things kept happening afterwards. Deemed as the main culprit, he is invited to the 4K club (kagaku de wa kaimei dekinai kaii genshou o kenkyuu suru kurabu – club to investigate strange phenomena which cannot be explained by science) by club leader Otoha, but he doesn’t want anything to do with it.

The most important thing is that the title can be shortened to Shimapan! Aside from that, hmm… I think I’ve heard this plot setup before. Oh right, Yougaku. There was high anticipation for that game, but it ended up being a mediocre comedic H fest. This doesn’t seem any different since it’s purely an ecchi chara-ge. Kokomi and Hanako catch my attention, but other than that, there’s nothing else to this game. Pass.

Complete agreement with Micchi over the game not being worth it, especially after the massive disappointment that was YouGaku. Given the similarities between the two I will definitely be avoiding this game until someone else takes one for the team to find out whether it is worth it or not. Aside from my own opinions there does not seem to be too much value in the premise of this story, with a more episodic feel than a central storyline to bind everything as a whole. If investigation of the supernatural was a side story for providing comedic relief and or side stories for the plot then there would be something here worth reading. Without this type of unification for the various elements used in the setting and story I predict the game will not be worth the time or effort unless you just want to look at the “Artwork”.

Akizora ni Mau Confetti

Company: etude
Game site: 秋空に舞うコンフェティ
Release date: July 30, 2010 Delayed to August 27, 2010
One autumn day, Hayato met a young girl who was standing with an umbrella in the pouring rain. Picking up the notebook which he thought was hers, his normal life gradually changes. He visits the drama club to look for the owner of the notebook. There he meets various club members: Saya, the girl he met before, who is also a screenwriter; Yuki, his classmate who is an amazing actor; Nanami, his tennen dojikko apartment manager who is also the club leader; and Kanae, a mysterious girl with amnesia who he found collapsed on the roof. He joins the club to help revive it and becomes the lead in the upcoming original play about an urban legend. With each passing day of practice, his monochrome world gradually turns into colour.

First of all, their arms are inhumanly long! It looks extremely odd and I can’t stop looking at it. It’s a shame, since the rest of the artwork is pretty top tier (although there’s maybe a little too much orange). Scenario-wise, it’s actually by Wakase Ryou, who was part of the writers for Natsunagi and Suzu7. The cast actually is fine, although whether or not it all comes together depends on the pacing and whether or not the inevitable drama seems forced. If all goes well, we might have another Mashifoni on our hands.

Sigh more drama clubs,  I suppose for those people who enjoy forced romance drama, the clubs must sure help that along. Well any drama club without Nagisa is a huge plus in my book, so as long as she is not there I hold nothing against them for there being a drama club, however this game does still feel exceedingly dull. By all appearances what we have with Akizora is a completely standard school romance story plus a drama club backdrop. Much of the story therefore relies on rather bland and predictable character growth. The lack of any central problem deeper than the clubs revival to deal with further solidifies the lack of a true plotline past simply selecting a girl.

Wow though the artwork for this game is so bad it deserves its own section. As Micchi already took the time to point out the arm lengths feel awkward to say the least, sometimes they line up properly with the body length according to their placement at the hips but still manage to look wrong. While I have not looked at it in detail enough to point out how exactly, I would guess this is caused by two major factors, the clothing and the disproportionately thin bodies. Of course other times the arms are just plain too long as mentioned. In addition to the arms the other instantly noticable major issue are the faces and most notably how the eyes being too far apart ruins the perceived shape of the face, leading to awkward expressions. I have no idea how this artist managed to become professional but they really should go back to art school to relearn the basics of body proportions.

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi

Company: フォン (feng)
Game site: 星空へ架かる橋
Release date: July 30, 2010 Delayed to August 27, 2010
New release date after being pushed back from June. Kazuma moved to Yamabiko-chou due to his younger brother Ayumu’s health and ended up staying at the Yorozuyo inn, owned by his father’s friend. On his first day at school, he got lost and asked for directions from a fellow student, Ui. She led him on an offbeat path and he accidentally fell and kissed her. Coincidentally, this was all seen by Ui’s friend, Ibuki, who thought he was a bad guy and declared him to be an enemy. Akaneiro‘s Minato has a cameo! Minatooooo!! ^o^ But I think that this’ll be delayed again till September at the earliest…

I am really getting sick of seeing this game month after month, sometimes constant delays are funny but when I don’t really feel like making fun of the game, the enjoyment evaporates. Anyway since this game has been extensively covered in-depth for a number of times I will just say, yes I want to play it despite not finding the premise particularly appealing due to my enjoying feng’s other game Akane iro.

Micchi’s Top 3 for This Month

  1. Sugar+Spice2

I think you need to get tested for diabetes. Good job on limiting yourself to a top 4, maybe you really have grown up.. a tiny bit.

Do I get candy?

You Get What You Pay For Saimoe Tournament 2010

  • 1. Diclonius  |  July 1, 2010 at 12:49 am

    Poor Zen another month that fails to impress him :p

    The game I’m most anticipating is BaseSon’s last Koihime game, Shin Koihime Musou ~Moeshouden~ just because I love the comedy in the series (among other things ^_^)

    Oh and the latest game from Palette but hopefully it’s full of comedy because I loved their older games, EmuPii and Sakura Strasse and it’s fandisk Sakuranbo Strasse (but I HATED how wimpy and whiny the protag is from these two games!!)

    1- Shin Koihime Musou ~Moeshouden~
    2- Sugar+Spice2
    3- Gothic Delusion (maybe)

  • 2. Kresnik  |  July 1, 2010 at 12:49 am

    Was it just me or I see that the banner for HoshiKaka is showing 12.11 on sale which means..

    I might only get Tasogare no Sinsemilla for this month, and maybe pick another one or two July title for August since nothing of value is present for the moment.

    Based on my trial experience, Tasogare no Sinsemilla might center in the legend of the heavenly maiden, and maybe the kids or anything she left behind instead of her magical robe. That and the crystal which able to liquified when crushed and re-solidified, and the scary and smelly bear-like monster with gushy innards. There’s no mention yet about medicine/drugs in the trial, but I sense weed/cannabis might come into play here. And considering the plot writing for their previous works, each route might end up completely in a very different direction.

  • 3. Rooked  |  July 1, 2010 at 6:19 am

    I am hoping PARASOL won’t be delayed. D:

    And wow, Ueda Ryo’s art in Akizora looks like junk on the cover art and that one CG, but it looks just fine on their website. Phew, faith restored.

  • 4. Kamizawa  |  July 1, 2010 at 7:32 am

    This month looks like i only play Classy☆Cranberry’s & Tasogare

  • 5. johnishida  |  July 1, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Hmm… Pretty much like last month only one game to look forward too and that would be: Akizora ni Mau Confetti. Soshite Ashita no Sekai Yori, despite Yuuhi, was a pretty good game so, I have some good expectations for this one.

    Though, I’m thinking of trying Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi but, there is something that just keeps me away from it… Perhaps I’ll wait for someone else opinion of it.

  • 6. Algester  |  July 1, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Aosora ni maou confetti
    hoshisora he kakaru hashi
    sora o aogite (kinda feels kinda like princess maker)
    yep thats for me as for vestige ZEN ill be reporting it for ya XD

  • 7. SnooSnoo  |  July 1, 2010 at 11:32 pm

    Isn’t this a total Ragnarok Battle Offline rip-off? Even the o_o eyes look the same.

  • 8. Guy1  |  July 2, 2010 at 3:00 am

    Eroges start going down after this month. After checking future releases, nothing seems good at all.

  • 9. m3rryweather  |  July 2, 2010 at 4:44 am

    I am a CLASSY guy.

  • 10. seele00  |  July 2, 2010 at 6:46 am

    At least Zen sounds less cranky this month.

    I might as well be getting the following then:
    1) Gothic Delusion (The word “loli” titilated my senses. Yes.)
    2) Albatross Koukairoku (People have been saying good things about it.)

  • 11. Wrathkal  |  July 2, 2010 at 7:41 am

    Yay, backlog continues to grow!

    Here’s my opinion:

    executor script-Hemi’s. Pass though. it’s illogical like Zen said, how she needs his help the second time round

    Tasogare-Pass, I’ll be waiting for someone else to play through this first, and hear his opinon.

    Green Strawberry-PASS

    PARA-SOL-Confusing, Pass

    Gekitama!-Typical plot, girls look loli, so it’s boring, pass.

    Konouta-Not my taste, Pass

    Classy Cranberry’s-Art looks good, kinda cute, but Atelier Kaguya… I don’t want to suspend my gaming too often because I keep hitting H-scenes.

    Gothic Delusion-What exactly do all those guys have that the girls say ‘I’ve been looking for you’? Still Lo is one heck of a loli. Art’s a little gritty for my tastes

    Albatross-Art kind of reminds me of Inganock, or maybe it’s just that dark feel. Still, I hope it’s a comedy, then I’ll jump onto it right off

    SKM-Moeshouden-I’ll just take it for the kicks of a 52 heroine harem

    BUNNYBLACK-I wish there was a video that would show more about this, but I can’t really say that this doesn’t attract me. Guess Zen would make some remark about that :D

    S+S2-Ginga looks more attractive to me than Fuuka, but either way, this is something that I’d play IF I cleared 70% of my backlog.

    Vestige-I agree with Zen TOTALLY, like why did it take him till NOW to find out that he’s wanted. But man, that OP sure rocks things up. Speaking of OPs, anyone know where I can grab full eroge OPs and EDs?

    No point commenting on FDs, since I won’t touch them

    Steal My Heart-No, Zen, you’re not the only one. The setting automatically seems a little weak if only two girls have that special background. The art’s kind of simple.

    NanaPri-Cross-dressing. Shota. Fail bodyguard. PASS PASS PASS

    Motto Nee-A girl that small is supposed to be an Onee-chan? NO WAY! Micchi, why don’t you molest her and find out if she fits your tastes? :P Still, kind of interesting to see the Suiseiseki/Souseiseki twin look. But best of all, KOTOKO. I repeat, anyone know where I can get OPs/EDs?

    Enbou no Felshis-The art puts me off right away, and given what Zen said about grinding, plus my lack of time, this is automatically a PASS

    Sora o Aogite-RPG. grinding, pass, but still, have to say that Mint is cute, and the battle system looks fun. The different looks remind me of Himegami Dungeon Meister.

    Yokoshima!! Pandemic-Like with Bunny Black, it’d be good if there was a video to watch. Though I think YouGaku might have spoiled this for us, after reading the character descriptions on the site, there’s a very high chance it’s gonna turn out to be full of sex. Still, I wonder how funny it can be when one of the characters is a skeleton

    Akizora-Zen, it’s called jumping on the bandwagon. Still, I agree with everything you say, those arms are nearly touching the knees, dude.

    Hoshizora-No comment, but I’ll just pass unless I know further.

    My picks:
    1. Shin Koihime Musou ~Moeshouden~
    2. Bunny Black
    3. Albatross Koukairoku

    Gahhh, I need lots more time! Btw, anyone played Hime to Majin from May? I wanna know more about it.

  • 12. Zen  |  July 2, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    @Diclonus : Well it comes down to how many games really have some sort of significant impact, when there are only one or two that really feel worthwhile out of 20+ it feels like a drought. There are five or so games I will consider playing, three I will definitely play, and of those two are delays.. So yeah in my opinion not such a great month.

    @Kresnik : I am a bit interested in Sinsemilla though I have no played the trial so hard to tell much about how things are going to be interpreted. Especially since Japan loves to take an existing idea then run with it changing just about everything. I really hope it turns out to be as good as it sounds, but well just about every game I have played lately failed so I am not very hopeful. Still let me know if it is good!

    @Rooked : Looked just as bad on the website to me, had it just been the cover and parts of the OP I wouldn’t have said as much.

    @johnishida : I agree about Hoshizora it just does not feel all that great, the game exudes an aura of really bland story and characters.

    @Algester : Please do tell me how Vestige works out, I am at least a little curious if they can possibly make that work.

    @Seele00 : I tried! I really tried! Originally I was going to try being happy about everything but this month just wasn’t good enough to maintain that mood.

    @Wrathkal : BUNNY well.. I don’t really mind other peoples tastes, I tease Micchi constantly but still no one will have the exact same likes and dislikes which is part of what makes eroge so fun. So on that note I really have nothing to comment about on other peoples tastes, other than when teasing as a show of affection! *cough* Besides I was also a bit attracted to the game, just the concept feels a bit too H focused and not enough story to really make me want to play it.

    Uh for the OPs and EDs if they don’t install with the game as normal video files you could try extracting them from the game files.

    I was a bit interested in Sora o Aogite but the gameplay looks fun for about five minutes before becoming tedious. The raising Mint part does seem entertaining, it just feels like they neglected to bring the individually well thought out concepts of the game together.

    Nice to see I am not the only one who found YouGaku to be one massive disappointment. Both YouGaku and Yokoshima feel like they had the potential but are ruined by the developers using their hands for things other than typing too much.

    Also wow that is Ironic I am playing Hime to Majin right this moment.. what remarkable timing you have. Hmmm as far as thoughts though I think a comment section is not exactly well suited for too much detail but, so far the characters are interesting and the battle system is annoying. Story well not too much has happened by the point I am currently at so still up in the air and can go either way.

  • 13. SnooSnoo  |  July 2, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    @Wrathkal seems to have been taking lessons from Zen.

  • 14. Algester  |  July 3, 2010 at 6:28 am

    well to those people who still dont understand what YouGaku gives its all about fetishes (its not about the story) <_< well thats what I think the staff wants to emphasize on anyway…

    well for the next months its going to be hectic with october on my sights yes KOICHOCO @_@

    i do forgot to add Classy Cranberry just for the heck of it YES ITSS BECAUSE ITS ATOKAGU @_@

  • 15. Wrathkal  |  July 3, 2010 at 6:40 am

    @SnooSnoo: That’s your imagination. Just happens that we spotted the same off-putting characteristics.

    @Zen: It’s coincidental, not ironic. I’ll have to try searching for them myself then. The OP/ED song I saw of Hime to Majin sounded quite good actually.

  • 16. warum  |  July 4, 2010 at 4:45 am

    Since I’m a big sucker for action I’ll try to be that Vestigial guy who always hold an Umbrella (take that m3rry!).

    Softhouse-chara games always seem to be plain but ends up with amazing(ly hard) gameplay, so it might be the dark horse this month.

    Akizora: The power of the maple leaves will overcome even the longest arms! Yeah…Flood em with maple leaves!

    Hurrahs for fandisks and minato appearances ~ woohoo.

  • 17. molnet  |  July 8, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    This month feels great. The only game I truly feel compelled to play, however, is Sora o Aogite Kumo Takaku. This due to my unhealthy affection to Ragnarok Battle Offline. Some of the other games do seem somewhat interesting, so I might give them a shot too.

  • 18. Kitty  |  July 8, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    I think my top 4 are

    1. Sugar + Spice 2 (It looks so sweet. I love me a pure love story!)
    2. Motto,Nee chan to shiyou yo! (I love onee-chans…)
    3. Classy Cranberry’s (I like some of Alteir Kaguya games. School Project was cute.)
    4.Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi (Bianary audio?! *.* I must have it. The art looks good,and I like the character voices.)
    Only letdown is that there’s probably no Yukari this month….V.V
    Yukari as in Aoyama Yukari,of course.

    • 19. Wrathkal  |  July 9, 2010 at 7:02 am

      Huh, seriously no Yukari? I’ve come across her like damn often already, twice in a row two times.

      • 20. Kitty  |  July 9, 2010 at 11:45 am

        Really? For this month? Oh yeah,she voiced in 2 games this month.

        • 21. Wrathkal  |  July 10, 2010 at 9:29 am

          Well, to be honest, I was referring to my own games, a few months back. (March now, should catch up by November latest)

          But I guess I just hit a coincidence. :D

        • 22. m3rryweather  |  July 11, 2010 at 1:39 am

          I’ve felt the most frequent seiyuu of late is Tono Soyogi.

  • 23. Wrathkal  |  July 24, 2010 at 11:16 am

    Wow, I looked at Moeshouden cgs, and there’s a lack of the ‘main’ cast scenes. No 10p btw. Most is… 5p? Kazuto + those wild girls.

  • 24. Micchi  |  July 24, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    @Kresnik: I won’t believe Hoshikaka is coming out until it actually comes out.

    @Rooked: You got your wish :3

    @Guy1: October seems to be shaping up quite nicely.

    @m3rry: Only the best for the classy dude! Cheers!

    @Wrathkal: Damn, you must’ve been as bored as we were! Thanks for the thoughts. I also took a look at Moeshouden and I feel a rage coming…

    @warum: Agreed on SofthouseChara. Great if you want a game with a good system.

  • 25. Kitty  |  July 29, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    Hey, wait, isn’t Charolete voiced by who I think it is?!?! Miru?!!!???!!!

    • 26. Micchi  |  July 29, 2010 at 7:44 pm

      Yes, Charlotte is voiced by Miru.

  • 27. fishsandwich  |  August 2, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    You know what? If the title contains the word “Classy”, it is automatically not classy.

    • 28. weeaboo  |  August 8, 2010 at 7:01 pm


      nooo my “classy gentlemenly men’s club” is no longer classy

  • 29. Tasogare no Sinsemilla Review | Amaenbo Dane~  |  October 22, 2011 at 5:21 am

    […] There’s a legend about an angel’s robe in the scenic town of Minakami-mura, in the middle of which there is a large shrine. An university student, Kousuke, visits his mother’s hometown during the summer break to do some part-time and reacquaints with some old friends while also meeting some new ones. However, their normal lives are altered by the presence of a mythic drug that can cause living beings to become abnormal. This is the local story of the monster named Yamawaro.
