July 2019 Eroge Releases

July 5, 2019 at 6:00 pm 13 comments

A couple highly anticipated sequels are coming out in time for the summer: Qruppo’s Nukige Mitai na Shima ni Sunderu Watashi wa Dou Surya Ii Desu ka? 2 and BaseSon’s Shin Koihime†Musou -Kakumei- Ryuuki no Taimou. ASa Project continues their slapstick comedies with Ren’ai, Karichaimashita, while Heliodor’s Ryuusei World Actor is a promising debut title. Clochette, Marmalade and 3rdEye also have games out this month, so there’s lots to choose from!

A rather odd month for me honestly. Mainly because I may not be especially excited over any title yet things are generally positive this month. There may be some questionable choices in titles but none that are absolutely guaranteed to be terrible. Feels weird to actually have hope despite eroge showing some of the usual warning signs. So lets all hope my negativity is just being bitter and jaded towards the industry and everything turns out for the better…



Kokorone=Pendulum!

Company: クロシェット (Clochette)
Game site: ココロネ=ペンデュラム!
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
Around 30 years ago, superpowers known as ‘magia’ started appearing in Japan. Soujirou recently gained the ability to read other people’s minds. Normally these powers would awaken in people over the course of a few days, but for him, it took a full two years. Furthermore, he isn’t able to control his ability well and it gives him headaches from time to time. With the intention of getting rid of it, he decided to enroll in Shizuka-no-Umi Gakuen in Saema, a leading academic research city where magia users (sourcers) gathered.

However, he was caught up in an incident on his first day and saw a fellow magia sourcer for the first time. The girl Sumika used her power which can heal even the most serious illnesses, and he was so captivated by her that he wished to become just like her. Thus, he started to learn how to properly use his magia with fellow students Chihaya, Leeruu, Tsumuri and his imouto Nazuna, the most powerful magia sourcer in the school.

Seems very similar to Kamikaze☆Explorer!, together with the imouto and token loli among balloons. It’s always fun to play Clochette games due to the vibrant colours and comedy, and that’s the feeling I got from playing the trial. It starts with them investigating mysteries around the school, but I’m sure there’s something much bigger (related to the initial incident and battle). I want to spend more time with Tsumurin! Hau~ omochikaeri~!

Very typical Clochette game. Essentially just disregard the story and focus on the characters like any charage. Truthfully they should probably tone down on the random magic in their stories as it can be distracting and pointless. Would much rather they focus more on the characters and comedy that they are much better at writing. Ah well this is still just a simple good natured eroge like all their titles, nothing special, yet nothing truly bad either.

Study§Steady

Company: ま~まれぇど (Marmalade)
Game site: スタディ§ステディ
Release date: July 26, 2019 Delayed to September 27, 2019
Comments:
Her first lesson about love started when she met you.
As you two spend time together, she gradually changes herself to match your type.

Perhaps she might call you by another name. Just by doing that, what had been normal conversations up till now would surely feel somehow more special. Hearing these whispers of love every day, whether with others or alone, will make you love her more and more.

Perhaps she might change her hairstyle. Surely it’s her way of mustering up the courage to appeal to you. How you will respond to her feelings is up to you.

Before long you will become true lovers. This is what they call ‘going steady’.

Returning from school together while holding hands.
An unexpected time alone in the classroom after school.
Exchanging presents during Christmas.
Welcoming the new year together at the temple.

Such a love story only for you is surely out there…

It’s a bit hard to gauge how the game will go since there’s no trial out, but I wonder if it’ll be kinda like hibiki’s CATION series where you can customize many aspects of each route. The characters and graphics look good to me. I want a kouhai like Mai-chan!

Their heart is in the right place with this title but these types always bite off more than they can chew. The real problem lies in the writing, there are just too many variables to cover well so it ends up making everything feel more bland as a result. I personally would rather have a more focused and well written heroine route as this makes it easier to empathize with the characters. Hard to find a point to a dress up sim if it dulls the attraction of the heroine.

Of course this is all under the assumption that their implied meaning is as such. Should it turn out to be a normal route or just minor clothing choice changes with no real significant differences to actually change accordingly then I would instead be annoyed at their emphasis on such a minor thing as something significant enough to establish an entire eroge around.

So poor story or sly marketing pick your poison.

Raillore no Ryakudatsusha

Company: 3rdEye
Game site: レイルロアの略奪者
Release date: July 26, 2019 Delayed to October 25, 2019
Comments:
A century or more from now, all humans have acquired superpowers in this new world. These powers are such a commonplace that those who do not possess them are viewed as outcasts. Civilization has greatly declined during this time of change with the human population greatly reduced and nature reclaiming lands which had been developed.

The town of Raillore, with brick dwellings reminiscent of the Middle Ages, is surrounded by forests and rivers and blessed with fertile soil. Since the concept of countries has vanished, it is self-governed by an order of knights who fight crime to protect the townspeople.

One time, it was confirmed that there were people called ‘errors’ with unknown powers known as ‘moments’ which bring about strange phenomena. These events caused fear to the masses and it was up to the order of knights to deal with the situation after it was determined that the errors suddenly appeared due to an illness.

Just like Korolum above, there’s a battle scene at the beginning. I do like the dynamic presentation and a more interesting protagonist than your usual eroge one (what’s five destroyed buildings when you’ve caught the target?). That being said, I’ll pass on playing it, but it does look promising for those who are into battles and that kinda stuff.

What strikes me the most is the completely unnecessary setting. This could just as easily been a different world or your standard new world plot. By forcibly warping an existing setting in such an awkward manner I can’t help but have reservations towards the plot they came up with. A unique world has less common sense restraining it whereas things like lack of countries are just unbelievable regardless of their reasons. Whereas should this have taken place in a completely foreign location the common sense may have taken a different turn due to a different development. This is of course also avoiding the random superpower convenience. As much as I truly enjoy reading something where there is more substance to the romance than just arbitrary and generic high school students hook up, I am just as sick of how little effort is put into such titles. Most just end up with some random gimmick an almost copy paste low grade manga or light novel story and a few ero scenes. Take that as you will, but I do hope to eventually see some more critique in this direction so some more effort will be spent on what matters.

Shukusei no Girlfriend 3

Company: mirai
Game site: 宿星のガールフレンド 3 -the destiny star of girlfriend-
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the third and final game in mirai’s Shukusei no Girlfriend series. Japan has entered a new era, but Seiji’s life still remained the same. The only recent change has been Maja’s transfer to his class last winter.

However, one night he was attacked and had his life force drained by his underclassman Kanoko. She was actually a magic girl who protects people from monsters, but then why did she attack him? Did it have something to do with her family being attacked by monsters in the past?

It was decided by the magic girl society that Kanoko will stay together with him while they determine the cause of the unnatural changes to her body. Normally she is quite calm and collected, but living with her opened his eyes to another side of her. What will become of their time together full of unexpected intimate incidents?

Suck me dry, my dear kouhai.

It’s magical girl garbage. Other than that I can’t say the art is very impressive. If you like the series continue otherwise probably not for you unless magical girls are something you actually like.

Shin Koihime†Musou -Kakumei- Ryuuki no Taimou

Company: BaseSon
Game site: 真・恋姫†夢想-革命- 劉旗の大望
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the third and last game in BaseSon’s Koihime -Kakumei- series, expanding on the events from Shin Koihime†Musou and focusing on the Shoku faction. It has truly come full circle back to Kazuto’s first meeting with Touka, Aisha and Rinrin. There’s 34 heroines that you can pursue (up from 23 in the original). Just give me the Hawawa and Awawa strategists.

By this point I don’t think Micchi or I need to say anything other than “Koihime game” and everyone will get it.

Wonder if they’ll make something else now that the series is (temporarily) over.

They will either attempt something different and depending on how its received move on from there, or just start another Koihime series. Of course if they choose a new project and it goes poorly they will likely revert back to Koihime again.

Yuki no Yoru, Ore wa Imouto o Hadaka ni Suru.


Company: はむはむソフト (HamHam Soft)
Game site: 雪の夜、俺は妹を裸にする。
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:

“Onii-chan. Please leave me here in this home…”

Shingo left his hometown in the countryside to live alone in the city. Then during the winter break, his imouto Yuki, whom he thought he had left behind, travelled all the way from afar to live with him. His cousin Sae who visits him often for private lessons sensed the arrival of another girl.

What was Yuki’s reason for coming? What actions will Sae take?
Before he knew it, he laid his hands on their bodies….

Hmm… I understand that it’s an imouto nukige, but a bit more love and romance would be better… I can’t stand protagonists that force themselves on their imoutos.

Just do the right thing Shingo and leave her there properly. That is imouto characters’ natural habitat. At their home, far far away from you.

Shiina Maho no Himitsu ~Name wa H de Omoitsukimasu~

Company: アストロノーツ・コメット (Astronauts Comet)
Game site: 椎名真穂のヒミツ ~ネームはHで思いつきます~
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
With beautiful flowing black hair and good looks, on top of a calm personality and polite speech, Maho is a well-raised lady no matter how you look at it. However, behind that exterior lies a true side that no one could have imagined: she is actually a avid ero doujin author!

Koutarou ended up moving into the apartment that she managed and quickly discovered the secret that she had tried to cover up at all costs. She was horrified that her secret was out, but contrary to her expectations, he accepted and supported her dream of being a creator. So, she made a once-in-a-lifetime request to him in order to produce the most amazing work:

“Could you provide me with erotic reference materials?”

Thus, he was recruited to help with countless ‘material gathering sessions’. How will the ero manga that they worked on together turn out?

There must be a lot of aspiring ero doujin artists out there since there’s a couple games with the same theme. Who knew material gathering sessions would be so involved? There’s no trial nor CV listed for Maho yet, so maybe it’ll be delayed.

Overused concept. As much as the heroine is to my liking I can’t get behind the ero excuse. Put more effort into developing your characters, especially if there is only one. If you just want to make a nukige why even bother, simplify it more so we don’t have to deal with some cheap porn script. Else at least make it absurd and funny.

Update: the trial came out, but I don’t have time to play it.

NEKO-NIN exHeart 3

Company: Whirlpool
Game site: 猫忍えくすはーと 3
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the third game in Whirlpool’s NEKO-NIN exHeart series. It’s been a few months since the cute nekomimi ninjas Yura and Tama came from Fuuma Village to serve the protagonist. Ritsu and Maya have joined them since and their time together have become even more happy and lively. But as expected, a wind of change is in the air.

“I am the next leader of the Saikashu, the successor of Magoichi…. Saika Himari!”

The haughty girl was accompanied by two attendants. What is her objective and what is the Saikashu? The third act has started for this modern ninja cat drama.

More nyannyan time.

Yup, this is still ongoing.

So is Nekopara. Welcome to the catgirl future.

I mean catgirls are fine and all, but i prefer the Nekopara method. By including the random ninja stuff I can’t help but feel they are trying to be too gimmicky with Nekonin. Would be fine if it was a single character, but there are too many of them.

So that means you’ll be playing Vol.4 with me, right?

If I can ever get around to volumes one through three sure.

Nukige Mitai na Shima ni Sunderu Watashi wa Dou Surya Ii Desu ka? 2

Company: Qruppo
Game site: 抜きゲーみたいな島に住んでる貧乳はどうすりゃいいですか?2
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the sequel to Nukitashi and it also includes after stories for the main heroines. After Junnosuke was victorious in the Pervert War, saving Seiran Island and establishing a new set of laws, he was celebrated as a hero along with his comrades. He enjoyed peaceful days with his NLNS friends while reminiscing about their past fierce battles and thought that it would continue forever.

That was until one day he heard about a certain onahole from a friend on Onatter, a social network site where gentlemanly perverts gathered. This onahole’s sensation was so amazing that he stroked faster than the speed of light, causing him to be enveloped in a bright light and brought into another world, along with the SS Big Three, who just happened to be there at that time.

This parallel world was a dream paradise where he had absolute authority as the feared SS deputy leader known as the ‘Sex Emperor’. The pervert laws were still the ones from before the war. Will he be able to safely return to his world? A new battle begins with the SS Big Three…

I lost it at masturbating faster than the speed of light. Nukitashi is really an enjoyable surreal experience. All hail the Sex Emperor!

This is how you do a nukige. Random nonsense with no **** given. No one cares about the story so just make it absurd and silly as possible, at least it is then good for a laugh between the H scenes.

Ryuusei World Actor

Company: Heliodor
Game site: 流星ワールドアクター
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the first title by Heliodor. In the Seventh Commonwealth, there exists the 13th Police Division which is full of troublemakers and misfits. Ruka is a skilled detective who was reassigned to this division due to his problematic conduct and for being responsible for a terrible incident in the past. He is a lone wolf, but he was assigned a new partner, the rookie elf detective Claris. They aren’t on the same wavelength, but they will have to work together to protect the princess Mell who is fleeing a coup d’état.

My first thought when I opened up the trial was Cowboy Bebop, with the music and setting. The story is promising with Kinugasa Shougo (Reminiscence, Akatsuki no Goei) at the helm, and it’s nice to see Akanashi Yuu (Imaimo) return as well. It’s one of my top picks this month due to an unique protagonist, developed characters and especially delightful banter between them which makes you want to keep playing. And because you get a fairy that lives in your pocket.

Setup is generic, virtually a copy paste template plot. Especially the characters, quite lacking from the start with the usual lone wolf paired with rookie having to protect some VIP. If it wasn’t a protection mission it would be some investigation no one else wanted that leads down some rabbit hole for the sake of story. That said it does give a fairly well put together vibe. If generic starting point is what it takes for them to write something good I’ll take it. I don’t inherently dislike rehashing a well worn theme as long as it is well done. I am at least hopeful this time so I will at least end up adding this to the backlog.

Ren’ai, Karichaimashita

Company: ASa Project
Game site: 恋愛、借りちゃいました
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
Due to family circumstances, Yuki believes that money will bring happiness to his dear imouto Tsuki and as a result works late every night doing part-time jobs. He had planned to become a working member of society after graduating, but one day his imouto told him that if he wasn’t going to continue his studies, then she wouldn’t either and instead join the workforce. Yuki would not allow his imouto to suffer that hardship.

He hastily signed up as a ‘temporary rent-able individual’ to raise money for going to school. It’s unbelievable fishy, but it was the best option that he had. For some reason, he was asked by his classmate to pretend to be her boyfriend…. Furthermore, other girls asked him to be their lover, friend and onii-chan!?

How will his fake relationships with these girls that started from money pan out?

I love ASaPro games; you can jump in and enjoy them at any time. I can already envision the problems that will befall Yuki as he’s being rented out to so many girls at once. Did you know that human rental services are actually a thing in Japan? I wonder how much an imouto costs…

Maybe he should just sell that useless little sister of his to Micchi. Win, win, win. He gets rid of the leech, earns some money from it in the process, and Micchi gets his dream come true.

I agree with Micchi about Asa Project games that they are one of the easiest to read. Light hearted charage that make a good starting point for a first game for those unfamiliar with eroge. Stories may not be great but they don’t need to be. The lack of complexity is in exchange for an emphasis on comedy and characters, worth it in my book. They may never be my or perhaps many other peoples favorite eroge, but they never seem to fall below average, with most turning out well.

LOVE³ -Love Cube-

Circle: NEKO WORK H
Game site: LOVE³-ラヴキューブ-
Release date: July 26, 2019
Comments:
This is the first title by doujin circle NEKO WORK H. Ichinari is an aspiring ero manga artist who considered abandoning his dream of turning pro since he couldn’t even pay his rent. His editor Akira, who always looks after him, recommended him to be an assistant to a renowned manga artist.

He accepted the position believing that it was his final chance, and it turned out that his boss was his childhood friend Iori, with whom he had promised to become manga artists together. Also, Iori’s other assistant was the very popular doujin author Nodoka, who he had taught how to draw while she was his kouhai at the manga club during high school.

They were surprised but happy at the sudden reunion, and a certain god that listened to their wishes soon brought their ‘fates’ even closer. It was the beginning of a sudden life together writing ero manga.

The second ero manga game this month. Admit it, you’re just playing for the (moving) Ishikei art.

Write what you know then ero-glorify it and you have an eroge I suppose.

      Not sure on the going rate for sisters, but since shes a low quality product she should be pretty cheap. Even Micchi is uninterested so she can’t be worth much.

    The Astronauts game already has a trial (1st July) and VAs listed. Very obvious someone did the write-up in June and only waited until now to publish.

    I still wonder why Zen writes for this blog. I was an angry, bitter guy too, but I eventually realized it hurt me more than anything. I think it’s better to focus on what you enjoy, and if the hobby just brings more anger and bitterness, it’s time to leave it behind.

      At this point I’m pretty sure it’s just Micchi and Zen’s comedy routine. It’s pretty boke & tsukkomi.

      He is a pessimist but its not like he can’t look behind his pessimism. (Read the second half of his Ryuusei World Actor review)

      I really like what he adds to the reviews and I think his complaints are usually spot on.

      I think it is special charm of that blog.
      If it was only Micchi… Then his blog is boring to read, seriously. Reading Zen comments is funny.

      By the way, usually I’m praying every time: “Oh, please, say that this eroge is good, please”.
      Because deserving good comment from Zen is truly treasure. Eroge companies should be proud for that.

    • 11. Zen  |  July 28, 2019 at 3:22 pm

      Every so often I reply to this type of comment, so here goes once again.

      I do enjoy eroge. The reason I am bitter and annoyed at most games and companies is for two main reasons. First the first eroge I played were much better than most of them today. Classics that most games now are based on. So I know they CAN do it if they try. Just most companies can’t be bothered to put in slightly more effort. Or they are just too stupid to. Either option is enough of a reason to criticize them.

      Other than this is more my personality I guess. Some of my favorite games are garbage objectively speaking and I am not afraid of saying so. Liking something doesn’t make it good. Conversely not liking something doesn’t make it bad. Other than where clearly noted, usually when kidding around with Micchi about little sisters or magical girls I remain as objective as possible in my assessment of quality. Doesn’t mean I am right, as there is no real way to tell until the release. Trials sometimes end up as the only good part of an eroge after all. Sure in the end it is my opinion, and I am far from perfect. But pointing out why something is bad or flawed doesn’t mean I am saying I hate all eroge or you should dislike it. There are some fanbases I despise however because they are cancerous towards the industry as a whole.

      Which brings me to the main point of why I feel we should be critical of things we love. If we as consumers allow companies to continue cutting corners without speaking out about it because either we don’t have any choice as they are all like that or we are too lazy, then we are just being ripped off. Most eroge have flaws caused by blatant laziness on the developers side simply because they can get away with it. As I said before the standard I demand has been met before, hence I am very critical of the current eroge.

      • 12. Micchi  |  July 28, 2019 at 4:56 pm

        I’d also like to add that it is a difficult time for the industry, as it is difficult to attract and maintain players in face of the mobile game industry. There has been a contraction as we see companies both old and new close down, which may possibly have been inevitable due to too many similar games post-expansion from the golden era. However, it is still sobering to see and you don’t want to see it happen to something you love. So, please keep supporting the industry – go and buy the games, post your impressions and recaps, recommend them to new players, etc.
