November 2019 Eroge Releases

November 21, 2019 at 3:10 am 12 comments

It’s not often you can have things both ways, but in HOOKSOFT’s Docchi no i ga Suki desu ka? you can either take the lead with your girlfriend, or let her do so. Your decisions are also critical in the two RPGs this month: Astronauts Sirius’s Chaos Dominas and catwalk’s Yuusha to Odore!. For something much darker, there’s always BUG SYSTEM’s yuri title Manakashi no Yuri wa Akaku Somaru.

While not a particularly great month, nor are there many releases in general It is nice to see some slight turns towards a more positive direction. Sure it seems like the industry is dying, and in a lot of ways it is, but it would be nice if a lack of more business oriented thinking towards eroge allows people who actually care about the games they make to come back.

ChuSingura46+1 Wacchi to Onii-chan no Raburabu Nagaya Seikatsu

Company: プレカノ (Prekano)
Game site: ChuSingura46+1 わっちとお兄ちゃんのラブラブ長屋生活
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
This is a spin-off game for Inre’s ChuSingura46+1, produced by Prekano. Shinpachirou failed to stop the raid of the forty-seven ronin and returned to Naoto on the verge of death. Her injuries healed as they spent a quiet life together. As spring arrived, he asked if she would like to live in Edo, to which she readily agreed. However, they were not samurai but rather ronin, and without money, they have no jobs. Still, they believed that they’ll be able to figure things out when they got there.They found a place in a cheap longhouse and she explained to him the various lifestyles and customs of the Edo period, much of which was a still a commonplace in the present age. Their loving cohabitation true story begins now.

I don’t expect this to be much different from Prekano’s previous single-heroine games, other than a historical setting and featuring a beloved character by another company. It’s clear there’s an intended audience here.

I do like the idea of taking a game with roughly a billion+1 heroines and then throwing that out the window to focus on one at a time, *Coughs loudly in Baseson’s direction*. Whether or not this is any good or worth it really just depends on if you care about the heroine as is usual for single heroine games.

Tadaomi is a second-year student at Gouketsukan private school. Since he’ll be busy preparing for university entrance exams next year, he thought that this summer vacation would be the best time to make memories with his girlfriend. But how would he spend his time together with her…? If you were in his place, would you take the lead or leave it all up to her?

Well, first he needs to make a girlfriend. But that aside, the selling point of this game is the choice of being aggressive or passive in your relationship. The endings will be different for each heroine, so you might as well try both. There’s also an extra pillow talk system to further your relationship. I feel like the pacing is similar to SMEE now, with more comedy and tsukkomi. I find the interactions with Koyuzu sometimes goes a bit overboard. Of course, I’ve got my eyes set on the lovable (do-M) kouhai Mea. I’m gonna spoil her so bad.

It is nice to see a gimmick that could be interesting and should at least provide some more interest and incentive when replaying for new scenes with your favorite heroine. Beyond the gimmick however there isn’t much special going on here, thus resulting in the usual “Hope for the best, but expect the worst mentality”. The main problem to cause this being many of these eroge feel fun and much more enjoyable for the first few hours. After which the writing and story tend to fall apart making the routes feel more tedious. In other words they focus on the trial then just half ass the rest of it. Of course I do hope that is not the case here, as I actually am looking forward to this one.

Chaos Dominas

Company: アストロノーツ・シリウス (Astronauts Sirius)
Game site: カオスドミナス
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
The island of Regulus was once a prosperous and peaceful nation ruled by a royal family. The country was said to be protected by a dragon and an angel, which were depicted on the royal coat of arms. The kingdom’s history dated back thousands of years, and its inhabitants had complete faith in the reigning king and queen.

However around a decade ago, demons led by an archdemon who called herself the “Primordial Demon” suddenly appeared a decade ago and attacked the kingdom, annihilating the knights with their immense magical power and murdering the king and queen. The capital fell in one night amidst the flames and the island was put under the control of five of her loyal followers, known as the “Witches”.

Now, the witches rule by fear with their formidable powers. Even after over ten years, they have not aged at all, and have actually become more powerful instead of weakening over time. People thought that making a contract with them would result in eternal life and magic powers. While there was initial resistance against the demons, their numbers gradually dwindled as the islanders resigned themselves to the witches’ unjust rule.

Gilbert is a demon hunter who possesses demonic powers. He set foot on the island determined to defeat the demons who have possessed the five witches, as well as archdemon who controls them. What fate awaits him…?

The main RPG entry for this month. I’m still busy with Evenicle 2. Yes, I know it’s been almost a full year.

As usual I simply prefer more substance to my RPGs. Eroge tend to have embarrassing simplistic or mind numbingly tedious gameplay even by the standards of thirty years ago. I am honestly not asking for much, as I don’t expect a triple A level budget but at least write out a proper story before adding game mechanics that don’t feel like a chore after the first playthrough.

In the case of Chaos Dominas, it is another one of those “Welcome back to the 1980s” style of RPG once the combat starts. Personally I feel sticking to the isometric view and following a more Diablo or Secret of Mana style would have been better, you know like the 1990s. Ah well, maybe next time.

Oshikake Kanojo wa, Ore no Sewa o Shitai

Company: とこはな (Tokohana)
Game site: 押しかけ彼女は、俺の世話をしたい
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
The protagonist began living by himself in the regional city because of his new job. One day, he noticed that Isana was having problems with her bicycle and helped her out. He wouldn’t accept payment for repairing it, so she offered to help out at his home in return. He agreed thinking that she wouldn’t actually follow through, but she actually came to his house to cook and clean for him. Then, as he helped her out with studying and played together with her, they rapidly got closer to one another.

This is the latest game in Tokohana’s low-price Healing series, with a sporty kouhai heroine (although I don’t see how having such a huge chest can’t be anything but a detriment to competitive swimming). It seems like a big jump from fixing a bike to getting everything done for you. Maybe I should go around offering to fix bikes for girls…

While I may not have much to say as this is a case of “It is what it is” I just have to question the lazy premise behind the characters coming together. As Micchi already mentioned there is a huge gap between having a bike fixed and turning into a personal slave. At least don’t be lazy and make the process more gradual.

And so if any little sisters bikes break we know who did it when we call the police.

Manakashi no Yuri wa Akaku Somaru

Company: バグシステム (BUG SYSTEM)
Game site: 真愛の百合は赤く染まる
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
Manami couldn’t remain any longer at her previous school due to being treated as an outcast after confessing to another girl and moved to another city. She vowed not to let it happen at her new school, but she quickly ended up having feelings for her classmate who was also named Manami. At first she tried to kept this a secret, but it wasn’t long before her feelings were noticed. She was shocked to hear that she also liked girls and reciprocated her love. However, their relationship gradually became more twisted…

BUG SYSTEM is among the few companies that make games with gore in them. Rubi-sama’s art is very nice to look at, but I prefer to have my heroines stay in one piece, so definite pass.

Yuro.

Shiraha Kirameku Koi Shirabe

Company: CRYSTALiA
Game site: 白刃きらめく恋しらべ
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
Ayato is an exorcist who works for the government. This time his mission is to investigate and destroy a supernatural object which had been brought into the sword arts school Murakumo Gakuen. With the help of his team members Hime and Ruri, he traced its location to Matsurika, the sole daughter of the head of the Swordbearing Defence Group. They were successful in destroying the object, but as a result, Matsurika became the initiator of the Spiritual Calamity. To teach her skills to fight against spirits, Ayato became a temporary mentor to her.

“No matter what, I want to stand by your side…”

This sequel takes place three years after the events of Kizuna Kirameku Koi Iroha. While the setting is the same, the cast is completely different. The cast is pretty good, with Kusuhara Yui, Misonoo Mei and Ayumi Sara. I don’t really care much for chuuni battles, so I’ll gladly stick to my school comedies.

The usual case of protagonist needs to go to a random high school where all the girls are holding weapons because of reasons we can’t be assed to properly work out. To be clear here I am not against the whole weaponized women thing in general, though I am a bit iffy on always making it a high school. The main issue is the lack of world building for their settings and general story being lackluster. In this case there would have been many other ways of throwing the protagonist in his heap of girls, but just like most others it is too convenient. You can just feel how the writers didn’t want to spend an extra five or ten minutes to flesh out the start and motivations properly instead of rushing to the girls.

Yuusha to Odore!

Company: catwalk
Game site: 勇者と踊れ!
Release date: November 29, 2019
Comments:
New release date after being pushed back from October. Kyou’s adoptive parents passed away suddenly in an accident, leaving him at a loss at what to do. Then he was summoned to a parallel world, where he was greeted by the person who summoned him, the holy princess Felicia.

“Welcome back, Hero. You are truly the descendant of the dragon, the Hero who I had been waiting all this time for…!”

This parallel world of Altair was once protected by a goddess and her follower divine dragon. However, they lost their lives in a war with the god Nyx from the world of Abyss. The citizens of Altair seeked power to oppose the invading forces, so a summoning ritual was performed to bring back the Hero from Earth.

“We need you. Will you fight alongside me…?”

Kyou did not see himself as a Hero, but he could not refuse to help the princess. However, he lacked any battle knowledge, so he entered an explorer training school with her. As if by fate, other girls joined them, harbouring secrets of their own. He finally found the place where he always yearned for: a peaceful life full of warm smiles and happiness.

Before long, these fine days and the whole world would be under threat. Will their bonds of friendship protect them and will they be successful in saving the world?

This is basically any isekai LN in eroge form. They aren’t that good and this one probably won’t be either. The usual escapism with a self-insert protagonist. There’s a dungeon fighting system that has a puzzle element as well. Pass.

I laughed way way harder than I should have at his parents death. Not because they died mind you, but because it was so superfluous to do so yet they were adamant enough to stick to their eroge guns and kill off the protagonists parents anyway. I mean why would you even do that when you are removing the protagonist from the world regardless of his parents existence, it’s so pointless. Sure it may come in to play later but there’s no need to actually make that happen if that was their intent. Poor eroge parents, eternally making the most noble of sacrifices so their kids can get laid.

As far as the game itself Micchi said everything I would want to already so I’m out of a job on this one. If this happened more often I could just sit back and copy paste “Micchi said it already” over and over. Oh well if nothing else the random imouto characters will stop Micchi from ever being jaded enough for that sadly.

I think their death is to highlight the fact that he’s in a pitiful position in his current world and without any tangible connections to it, free to be taken to another world where he is coveted by all females.

    So at first it was Innocent Gray and now Bug System betraying us by going the way of the cancerous yuri. There can never be enough dismembering and gore to compensate for this.

    Looking forward to Chaos Dominas. I played the demo and liked what I saw. Gameplay is simple, with most of the complexity coming from party, equipment and skill composition. Always liked reading the product of the studio’s scenario writers too.

    Can there be an eroge with a black or half-black protagonist in the future ? He can be raised in Japan since a small kid so he would know the language and culture like the back of his hand when he starts the game as a high school teen.

      Never. Its already rare to see non-japanese protags but they are generally white.
      Your best bet are nukiges but they are likely villains so dont expect a posituve representation.
      You could try https://vndb.org/v25050/chars#chars, which is female protag but the black childhood friend is the closest you will ever get to a non-bad guy black character.

        I see. Guess I have to learn to draw my own anime-style Moe artwork with a black MC myself so i can try to get off to my own drawings lol. I am not Japanese IRL so I can’t relate anymore to a Japanese MC as that has been done to death. Interracial FTW.

          I can relate with anything as long as i can name the MC after myself so i dont particularly need the protag to match my ethnicity.
          Maybe spend money on commissioning for a game and then nake a patreon.

      Hey. I prefer a tentacle monster myself. We need more vanilla tentacle action. #tentaclesarelovers too.

    Has anyone figured out yet if it really is a yuri game or if it’s a bait-and-switch that’s going to turn into a rapefest?

    LMAO not just me, but there was a person from even Japan asking about black MCs in Eroge since many years back on a JP forum, here : https://www.logsoku.com/r/2ch.net/news4vip/1349952490/ I guess he too would love to fap to eroge where the difference in skin color contrast and race is present. Me too, as that makes me feel extremely aroused and excited as I love interracial love.
