September 2019 Eroge Releases

September 1, 2019 at 12:01 am 1 comment

What would you do for love? The romance story only for you may be in Marmalade’s Study§Steady, provided it isn’t delayed again. Maybe you want something light, like Lass Pixy’s Little Sick Girls ~Osananajimi no Koibito~? Then again, nothing is stronger than a sibling bond, as you will see in Applique’s Cross Concerto.

Another empty month. Good news for backlogs everywhere and those who want fandisks. Otherwise the only one actually worth looking at this month is Cross Concerto, the rest are either nukige, fandisks, or nothing special.


Little Sick Girls ~Osananajimi no Koibito~

Company: Lass Pixy
Game site: Little Sick Girls ~幼馴染の恋人~
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
The second-year student Akito is a late-blooming yet stereotypical chuunibyou: engrossed in anime, manga and games, and able to recite lines from memory. Because of this, despite his good looks and attractive voice, he was viewed as a disappointing ikemen. However, he paid no heed to what he believed was mindless drivel and enjoyed his hobbies every day at the school’s anime and game club with his close friend Shunta.

Then due to a certain incident, his childhood friend and class rep Eri began to stay by his side at all times, devoting herself to him. He thought that it was strange and after seeing a specialist, she was diagnosed with the ‘dependence type’ of ‘Aphrodite Syndrome’ and labelled as a ‘Little Sick Girl’.

This is the first game in Lass Pixy’s new low-priced series. It prides itself on starting off with the heroine at max affection, no unpleasant feelings and lots of ero. The heroines are all ‘a little sick’, but not like a yandere. There’s nothing that really stands out for me, so it’s just your usual play-if-you-like-the-girl game.

I understand the need for some gimmick for this type of format to work. You need something special for the heroines to stand out so trying to do something unique is fair enough. The big unfortunate but which smothers what could have been lies in the very same gimmick. To simplify things without their tactful re-marketing of what is going on, the protagonist’s role is to take advantage of mentally ill girls who can’t help themselves. Good job Lass Pixy. I cannot facepalm hard enough at whoever thought this was a good idea. Whats worse is at least for this episode the girl literally suffers from “Fuck me please” syndrome.

It’s fine to make a nukige, may not be my cup of tea but they are what they are. I loathe when nukige get pretentious about their identity though. Either be straightforward and simple about the content or make it hilarious and it’s all good. Trying to make an excuse for the ero content just makes everything awkward.

In summary, should have just been a yandere.

Kimagure Temptation

Company: シルキーズプラス WASABI (SILKY’s PLUS WASABI)
Game site: きまぐれテンプテーション
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
There was an extremely baffling incident at a certain apartment building where all four of its residents were found deceased, with their stomaches cut open and internal organs removed. The dense miasma in the building suggested that there was a spiritual influence behind it all. Since the police was swamped with cases, the young onmyouji Haruhisa was instead dispatched to conduct the investigation.

At the same time, the demon Anneliese arrived from England to partake in the otaku culture that she admired, and agreed to help him in exchange for permission to stay permanently in Japan. However, she was more interested in his lower half than solving the case. Her fierce advances made him feel uneasy due to his lack of experience with women.

Thus begins a cohabitation life in a cursed apartment between an onmyouji seeking to solve a mystery and a demon who just wants to make out with him. Will Haruhisa be able to shake free from the temptation or give in readily to it?

Despite featuring many characters, this is actually a low-priced game where the only heroine is the Ayumi Sarah-voiced Anneliese. Scenario writer Kazuki Fumi wrote Palette’s nine series and Kimishima Ao’s art is attractive enough, so it’s worth checking out in my opinion.

I don’t understand the need for the whole private investigative onmyouji bit. Silly demon girl antics would have been plenty, just focus on making her attempts at seduction funny. There doesn’t even need to be too much done to make sense of her existence in that case as the focus is more on comedy. Can have the protagonist accidentally summon her or something and it’s enough. Could even have him summon her by accident through some item while being surrounded by delinquents and have her kill them if whoever came up with the idea insisted on the murder bit. At least in that case could have been both a funny and slightly disturbing entrance depending on how its handled.

From another perspective the demon girl herself is unnecessary if you wanted to do a PI onmyouji story. At the very least there would have needed to be more heroines as more exploration of setting and characters would be absolutely necessary for such a story to be successful. Would be fine to keep her as a heroine just not a sole heroine in that case, or at the very least changed her character and role in the story to fit better.

Essentially this is a clash between two eroge, making compromises to both to accommodate each other. A stronger focus on either side would have resulted in a much better game in the end. Though I’ll add this to my list it is only because I love demon girls, the rest is unimpressive at best.

No one can say no to demon girls. Even Zen.

If that’s not in the bible, it damn well should be.

Study§Steady

Company: ま~まれぇど (Marmalade)
Game site: スタディ§ステディ
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
New release date after being pushed back from July.

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.

Sex Open World e Youkoso!

Company: MOONSTONE Cherry
Game site: セックスオープンワールドへようこそ!
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
When Seiya woke up following the accident, he found himself in another world Laurentide. There’s an ancient legend that spoke of a man appearing from another world, who would help give birth to heroes that will bring an end to a period of strife. Even though it was essentially becoming a stud, he still wanted to have sex. Moreover, he could be called the king of this world as the father of the heroes. As if prophesied by the legend, bishoujos from across the world came to seek his seed, whether with the ambition of uniting the nations or just to have sex with him.

It’s a nukige where you’re supposed to get all the heroines pregnant. Then, you can fuck them some more in the name of love. I would be more interested if they weren’t all big-chested.

Well, they’re honest at least. I mean the title sums it up and they stick to it so I can’t help but respect that. Unlike the contempt I have toward Little Sick Girls attempt to cover up what the game actually is. Can’t say anything bad when they are honest about it as it is what it is, the end. 

Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki -Hana Akari-

Company: オーガスト (August)
Game site: 千の刃濤、桃花染の皇姫‐花あかり‐
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
This is the fandisc for Senmomo, taking place in spring following the events of the first game. A light-hearted affair in this sequel. I would like to see them make a brand new game instead of just putting all their time in Iris Mysteria

Fandisk.

Onaji Class no Idol-san.

Company: Sonora
Game site: 同じクラスのアイドルさん。
Release date: September 27, 2019
Comments:
Kentarou’s childhood friend Akari transferred schools a few years ago and they haven’t much contact since. One day, it was decided that he’ll live with his grandfather due to his father’s job transfer. When he arrived at the house, he saw Akari for the first time in a few years. She had enrolled in the celebrity course at Itsuko Gakuen and was living at his grandfather and the board chairman’s house, which had recently been converted to a student dormitory.

Then he was surprised once more when he was told that he would be part of this new curriculum starting the next day. They were lacking students since many had quit due to the rigours of the program, so he reluctantly agreed to participate for a year. He was unfamiliar with the specialized classes, but managed to get by with help from Akari, aspiring singer Ei and his other childhood friend Wako, who decided to join to stay by his side.

It’s a lot of hard work preparing the stage for the trio. What does the future hold for them?

I like idols, so this piques my interest. There’s also some cameos from Koikakin. I have nothing bad to say about the trial, and it deals with both the positive and unsavoury sides of the entertainment industry. Wako is gonna make it big as a gravure idol, I’m sure.

Want to make a high school romance and idol game in one? Lets make an idol class! Because that totally makes sense. Honestly the idol heroine thing works best when one or two at most out of five fall under that category. Too much focus dulls the edge, of course that applies to all gimmicks. But in this case they went way too far with the whole class thing while forcing the protagonist to join it. That they could not be assed to put more effort into their story, setting, and characters just means this is likely not to be anything special or of interest if you aren’t a die hard idol fanatic. Even then it most likely won’t be a memorable experience, play it and forget it right after is the best you can hope for here.

Cross Concerto

Company: あっぷりけ (Applique)
Game site: クロスコンチェルト
Release date: September 27, 2019 Delayed to October 25, 2019
Comments:
It was spring, the season of new beginnings. Satoru finally broke free from the closed remote village where he had been held captive as an unwanted child, and entered the same school that his late mother attended. However, he was surprised to find his twin sister Ruri and her attendant Kyouka waiting for him there. He met the cool senpai Touko and occult-loving student council leader Mirai and gradually got used to the dormitory life. However, there were figures working in the shadows; will they find out the truth behind the events around them?

Applique’s 10th anniversary title was crowdfunded at 260% of the original target of 15 million yen. As a result, they were able to come up with a pretty solid title with lots of content (4 heroines, 3 subheroines, 100 CGs, an extra route). It’s nice to see the campaign be so successful; it may be a viable option for other companies. The trial was interesting, revolving around Ruri’s ability to see the future (except her own) and their attempts to change it. I’m not going to go into the details, but if you do play it, do choose both options in the single choice presented. I have no qualms about the characters nor seiyuus chosen for them. This should be a nice pick-up for those that want a more involved story.

Perhaps it may be against my better judgement but I want to give Applique a chance. They have a rather good track record and there is nothing too obnoxiously bad flashing warning lights at me. Though I can’t help but question a lot of the themes the story revolves around, it’s fine. The reason it is fine in this case, and perhaps only this case, is the solution to the entire story will determine the quality. Honestly just being slightly interested in where the story will go because I don’t immediately know roughly how things will end is good enough for me.

    Whoever made the ‘Little Sick Girls’ might be a little sick themselves, at least in the head. Can you feel the pain tonight?
