March 2020 Eroge Releases

March 26, 2020 at 3:01 pm 25 comments

Did you need more games to keep you busy while you’re stuck at home? Good thing that there’s a few promising ones this month, such as Hulotte’s Ore no Sugata ga Toumei ni!? Invisible to Suuki na Unmei and CUBE’s futuristic Kami-sama no You na Kimi e. GIGA is remaking AXL’s Koisuru Otome to Shugo no Tate Re:boot THE “SHIELD-9”, while ninetail’s alchemy RPG Soushin no Ars Magna should keep you bound for hours. Stay safe everyone.

At least there are a better series of releases than last month, while I can’t think of anything worth pining for there is a good range of choices. What is even more noteworthy is that even if some are poorly made in one area or another, they don’t feel as bad as what makes them inferior isn’t because they are boring generic copy paste eroge.

Jinki Resurrection

Company: 戯画 (GIGA)
Game site: JINKI RESURRECTION -ジンキ・リザレクション-
Release date: March 27, 2020
Ryouhei woke up in a hospital, having lost all his memories, even his own name. In search of clues on how to regain them, he arrived in Kyoto and was welcomed by a group of girls who were part of an organization called Angel. He would end up living together with the three girls: the friendly Aoba, the reserved Akao, and the openly-hostile Kanae. He thought that it wouldn’t be that bad living like this with them, but it would soon all be turned upside down by the existence of large humanoid robots called “Jinki”.

This game takes place in the same world as the Jinki series. The previous title JINKI EXTEND Re:VISION didn’t fare so well. They’ve added the E-mote system, but the boob physics look really awkward. I don’t think it works well for a mecha-focused game.

Garbage Gundam. Mecha as a genre has generally lost a lot of its appeal as Japan seems to have lost what made it good way back when. Now they are too focused on being the “Chosen one” type of pilot.

Anyway General Mecha griping over, Jinki itself doesn’t look very promising. Giga hasn’t done well for awhile, probably why they focus on generic eroge spam nowadays. Thus I cannot bring myself to trust them on this one. Since they butchered the Baldr series I can’t imagine they would do much better here, especially given their recent track record. I sincerely do hope I am wrong, as I would like nothing more than this to turn out great, but I simply cannot see it happening.

Ama Mama Holic

Company: ましゅまろそふと (Marshmallow Soft)
Game site: あまママほりっく
Release date: March 27, 2020
Ikuto was raised by his father, having lost his mother at a young age. He attends a technical school to become a nursery school teacher, and started working part-time at a nursery school as part of his training. There he met the older Nozomi, who he admired after feeling maternal charms which he had not felt before.

One day, his father told him that he was going to marry again and it was going to be with Nozomi! At first he was overwhelmed with the sudden news, but he was happy that the one who he looked up to will become his stepmother.

On the day that Nozomi was to move in with them, his father got news that the long-term insect research study deep in the Amazon that he had been eager to go to for quite some time had finally been approved. She supported him on his work, so she readily agreed to stay behind. So, Ikuto was left alone with his new stepmother, who would dote on him and make him feel better, including in bed. Their fun and exciting days have only just begun♪

They’re literally cheating on his father. You could choose Nozomi’s imouto Megumi, or the mother-daughter combo Aoi and Ichika instead. There’s also a harem route after completing all three routes. I’m not really interested in this type of setting, aside from maybe being Ichika’s private tutor….

About the only thing I find interesting is how they try to include fetishes without actually doing so at all. There’s the whole mother thing, but shes not really related so it’s not that big of a deal and she could just be some random neighbor just as easily. Then there is the cheating part which some people get off to but is half assed here anyway with his dad off hugging trees. I feel like they wanted to hit some popular nukige trends but were afraid to exclude anyone so didn’t go all the way. Which brings me back to my interest, if that really is the best way to say it at least, perhaps insulted would be a better description. Go all out with whatever you are going to do, trying to meet everyone half way just leads to mediocrity in all directions. In this case it turns into just a generic nukige with some girls that have some arbitrary titles like “Mother” added to their names.

Ayakashi Yuukaku ~Satori Oni no Seiten Kitan~

Company: Casket
Game site: あやかし遊郭~さとり鬼の性転奇譚~
Release date: March 27, 2020
Wakahiko is a kind satori who likes to help others. One day, he heard a strange rumour that there was a village in the youkai world Tasogare where evil spirits gathered. Worried that humans might have accidentally wandered there, he went to check out the village, but was overcome by the intensity of the evil spirits. A few hours later, he awoke in an unfamiliar room with an unusual sensation.

“M-My body has… become that of a girl…!”

He had wandered into Ayakashi Genrou, a red-light district where men go to have sex with youkai prostitutes. Since he could change his form depending on human desires, he ended up as a woman due to the accumulation of evil spirits there. The owner of the brothel told him that if he could gather enough spirits for a hundred people, then he could return to his normal self. So, he decided to work as a prostitute there.

Does it really matter what gender youkai are? You might as well think of them all as female. It’s just a single-heroine low-price title, so just make your decision based on the cover.

One thing I simply cannot fault them for here is originality. I am unable to think of anything to compare this with. So uhh, nukige they at least put the effort in to think up something new, I’ll give them credit for that much at least.

Icing -love coating-

Company: はちみつそふと (Hachimitsu Soft)
Game site: アイシング-love coating-
Release date: March 27, 2020
Shigure is an aspiring patissier, along with his wife Akiho, who while loving him unconditionally, also doesn’t like losing in anything. They enjoy their sweet married life together as they work hard towards a common goal, both as lovers and as rivals.

Akiho’s cute and there’s sweets. Might be worth checking it out.

I am fine with single heroine eroge, but I can’t help but feel that starting from the after route of a fandisk somewhat weakens the characters appeal. Maybe it is just me, as I tend to enjoy the common route more than the rest in the majority of eroge. Still some build up to develop context and a sense of value to the characters and their relationship would be nice.

Ore no Sugata ga Toumei ni!? Invisible to Suuki na Unmei

Company: HULOTTE
Game site: 俺の姿が、透明に!? 不可視の薬と数奇な運命
Release date: March 27, 2020
Haruki was watching a stream of the extremely popular virtual net idol Kuzunoha Chitose when suddenly a lottery was held for all viewers. The reward was special rights to make any wish come true! He decided to give it a shot, and lo and behold, he was selected as the winner!

“I’ll be coming over, so wait right there♪”

At that moment his doorbell rang and Chitose herself was waiting at his front door. She handed him some mysterious pills.

“They’re pills that will make you invisible! Yay! Let me know how it goes~”

She left with a smile just as quickly as she had arrived, leaving him at a loss for words. Even though he had his doubts, he tried it out immediately and was surprised that it actually worked!

Next he snuck into the bath with his cousin Ame, who had been rather distant to him lately. While he was freely admiring her amazingly delicious developed body, she voiced her true feelings for him, causing him to unintentionally touch her. When he did so, the invisibility effect wore off!

She was obviously very angry at him, but still forgave him considering her feelings for him. When they checked the directions on the drugs, they found out that they can be used once a day and the effect disappears upon touching someone. Haruki was elated at the thrill of using it and potentially being found out, while Ame was determined to make him a normal person again.

HULOTTE’s last game was stopping time, this one is becoming invisible. They sure know what superpowers guys want… and how they would like to use those abilities. Good art, cute girls, mix of comedy and ero, likely harem route. Count me in!

Of course he won, he’s the protagonist of this eroge. Though since it is a silly basic eroge just take it as it is, enjoy the ride, and don’t worry too much about the rest. Probably one of the better choices to play in between other titles.

Shukusei no Girlfriend ALLSTAR

Company: mirai
Game site: 宿星のガールフレンド ALLSTAR
Release date: March 27, 2020
This is a compilation of the Shukusei no Girlfriend series, including all three titles, plus a new episode for subheroine Fujiko. The three episodes had decent reviews, so you could check it out if you haven’t played any of them.

Some magical girl nonsense compendium. 

Kami-sama no You na Kimi e

Company: CUBE
Game site: 神様のような君へ
Release date: March 27, 2020
Despite being merely a student, Kaito is an expert hacker who broke through the most advanced security system and gained administrative privileges to the C-AI (Central AI) that governs countless AI. In this day and age where the majority of infrastructure essential to daily living has been optimized with AI, he now had the power to do anything. So, he made the following command:

“I want to meet a girl who loves me!
With large cute eyes, who is kind and will spoil me, oh and with big boobs!”

He was dejected when his search got no hits, but it triggered the activation of a late-night robot factory to build a robot according to his specifications.

The next morning, a girl who looked exactly like who he wished for showed up at his door. Tsukuyomi had superhuman physical and mental abilities and loved him immensely. However, since she is an AI, she lacks common sense. Having determined that she still fell short of being his ideal, she decided to perfect her expressions of ‘love’ for him.

What lies ahead in the future for the God-like Kaito and his ideal (albeit robot) girl?

Kantoku’s back, and the writers are thankfully different from your diary, instead a trio of light novel authors: Murasaki Yukiya, Mikawa Ghost and Iwanami Ryou. You can look at it as a light SF story, with virtual idols. It’s not going to wow anyone, but should be a decent read.

Unfortunate Cube brought back their B list trash artist who never learned to shade or how to make characters look more than 5 years old without just increasing their physical size. They do seem to rotate this one in when they make a sub par game though so keep that in mind going in.

Poor employment decisions on the part of management aside, I don’t find myself all that expectant of the story here either. This is just a pre-programmed Chobits girl eroge. What little substance there could have been was destroyed by making the self propelled dutch wife programmed to love him because well hacker reasons. A better choice would have been him spending his time searching secret databases of whatever, and coming across an AI he then communicates with, or a special body somewhere or whatever else to create some buildup. Could even make him accidentally create or trigger an AI that develops alongside him. No matter what drama comes after the point the start is far too abrupt and lacks any meaning when AI girl or supposed AI given shes just acting on programming is just there to “Love” him.

I never thought I would say this, but Cube just go back to making imouto type games. Oh and fire this artist Kantoku or whatever they are called for good this time, they really aren’t worth keeping on payroll.

More imouto-ge! More imouto-ge!


Soushin no Ars Magna

Company: ninetail
Game site: 創神のアルスマグナ
Release date: March 27, 2020
Once upon a time, the Great Founding Alchemist guided the people from a world where everything turned to dust to the new continent of Archeus. It is a harmonious and fertile land protected by man-made gods called ‘Soushin’ (Gods of Creation), created by spinning the ‘laws’.

However, after a long time passed, the ‘Dust’ also began to encroach on Archeus. The ‘Soushin’ were driven mad and turned into ‘Gods of Calamity’, spawning monsters that wrecked havoc on the land and threatened the populace.

They would not sit idly by while the world was gradually swallowed the ‘Dust’, and a group of alchemists gathered at the top alchemist school, Cagliostro Academy, to attempt to continue the miracle from the past.

Your RPG option for the month. You can choose to be righteous or a heretic as you fight the monsters together in this alchemist quest. The system is kinda slow and boring to me, but I’m not really one who plays many of these games…

I do like having a choice in being good or evil, but these RPG mechanics are just too boring, tedious, and plain not fun for me to care. If they put a bit more work into the gameplay I would probably play it, as the story while not great isn’t particularly awful. I mean it amounts to a generic save the world quest but I would definitely want to try to get a world destruction end by playing evil.

Koisuru Otome to Shugo no Tate Re:boot THE “SHIELD-9”

Company: 戯画 Team AIGIS (GIGA Team AIGIS)
Game site: 恋する乙女と守護の楯 Re:boot The“SHIELD-9”
Release date: March 27, 2020
This is a remake of AXL’s 2007 title Koisuru Otome to Shugo no Tate, with new routes added for Yuuri and Setsuko. Senomoto Hisashi’s art has changed a bit over the years, while the cast has stayed pretty much the same aside from Yuuri (Nekoyashiki Mai). Of course, the graphics are now in widescreen full HD and compatible with Windows 10. I liked the original game when I played a bit of it after Otoboku. I guess they’re re-releasing it to appeal to those who weren’t around back then. Check it out if you haven’t played it!

Seems eroge are keeping up with the times and starting to remake the better games of the past, just like the normal game market.

Micchi’s Top 3 for This Month

  1. Ore no Sugata ga Toumei ni!? Invisible to Suuki na Unmei
  2. Kami-sama no You na Kimi e

  3. Soushin no Ars Magna

I want to be invisible too. Think of all the possibilities… you can even go outside and not be seen!

Think of all the money you would save on clothes!

    Nothing really strikes my interest this month, I’m surprised you found it to be more interesting than the last, I’d say it’s equal in its mediocrity. Stupid gimmicks galore, pick your fancy : cheating step-mother, transgender youkai prostitute, mechas, robot girls, etc… No thanks.

    I am puzzled by Zen’s comment that he prefers the common route in eroges, as this is the part that tends to be the most generic in these games. Even story and drama-heavy games tend to keep the most interesting stuff after entering the heroine’s routes.

    Reading your comment on Hulotte’s latest game, it’s like you never played any of their previous entries. Hulotte games do tend to have a silly premises but focus a lot on drama and fate in their mid-to-later parts, to the detriment of actual character interactions and relationship developments. Not quite the “silly and basic eroges” you make it out to be. This game may be the exception, but seeing that “fate” is in the title I somehow doubt it.

  • 2. freeform  |  March 26, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    Someone should make a free steam VN where the protagonist consistently fails to land in the stupid beginning premise situation of various other eroge.

  • 3. ReineMurasame  |  March 27, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    oh, CUBE after a while, also HULOTTE, been waiting :)

    Guys, I really want to see and play a Visual Novel with a Black Protagonist with Interracial romance very much, and am working hard on learning to draw myself and using RenPy for it, but in case my project doesn’t succeed, can anyone here with more experience start your own project with this setting ?

    If you need funds you can try Kickstarter. Please, the world desperately needs a VN with a Black Protagonist, after recent terrible events happening in a certain country where Africans suffered horrible and inhumane acts of discrimination just due to their appearance.

  • 7. teleportsbehindyou.jpg  |  May 2, 2020 at 1:07 am

    So many delays… Guess Corona-chan is hitting eroge too. :(

    Though it would be nice if this helped creators come up with better digital distribution methods for ADV. Less reliance on merch sales.

  • 8. Ledland  |  May 5, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    No April preview? So sad.

    • 9. vincent (@nekottesempai)  |  May 10, 2020 at 2:56 pm

      Forget about april usually by this time of the month we would get the may preview… i hope everybody stay healthy until japan can re open .

  • 10. Harleyquin  |  May 29, 2020 at 5:27 am

    Blog is dead. Website is more interested in retweeting gatcha games than writing previews. Two straight months missed, so the only thing going forward is the date where the money to pay the server fees keeping this website alive stops flowing.

  • 11. hatsuyukisakura  |  May 31, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Hope you guys fine in this troubled times. Take your time, We’ll be glad to see your next post. cheers

  • 12. asdvgag  |  July 13, 2020 at 2:39 am

    Rip blog, you will be missed.

  • 13. NikNaks  |  July 20, 2020 at 2:44 am

    MIcchi has still been tweeting so I guess this site is going to shut down soon?

  • 14. Dongalindo  |  August 27, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Is the website over?

    Pity, I don’t fault Micchi or the grumpy random other person, must have had their reasons and this wasn’t probably generating much traffic, but end of an era still for a very reliable portal in the eroge world for English speakers.

    Farewell, the memories stay!

  • 15. Thomas G  |  August 28, 2020 at 4:31 am

    I’ve already made preliminary preparations to make an Eroge with a Black Protagonist with a Japanese girl as the main heroine.

    I will make the art myself and use the Ren-Py game engine, but i would likely need the help of talented scenario/script writers for my game.

  • 16. atarizu  |  December 4, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    I think I had a discussion with Micchi about the blog, no it’s not dead but rather he’s barely busy enough to be able to maintain some activity on Twitter. Hint, guys, the sidebar gets updated, but no posts about it because that’s rather time-consuming compared to the sidebar. Where Zen is, though, is beyond me…

  • 17. veshurik  |  February 13, 2021 at 7:31 am

    RIP, Micchi-san. I will wait the final statement of your blog. Also, I see updates in list of upcoming eroge, and it seems strange… Ugh. Hop you’re ok.

  • 18. Mafuu  |  March 26, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    Well, it’s been an entire year since the last blog post here so I’m just gonna consider the blog inactive now. I still do wish we can get at least a “Best Eroge OPs of 2019” post sometime in the future so we can get our long awaited traditional closure of that year. I miss those kinds of posts…

  • 19. a cool dude  |  May 20, 2021 at 10:40 am

    kinda sad used to follow this blog for so long and now is gone

  • 20. Ryoumiya  |  May 24, 2021 at 11:44 am

    welp its been a year since your last post. i hope your okay Micchi and thanks for the posts for so many years

  • 21. freeform  |  October 9, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    i hope nothing happened to micchi. this was a great blog and much appreciated, sorely missed.

    • 22. atarizu  |  October 9, 2021 at 4:37 pm

      Midway in a discussion in a “Starlight Stage” community Micchi was explaining a job he dealt with, and probably a job that really urged him to throw out a “honne” about Omochikaeri…
      > “Honestly that makes it sound even more like Omochikaeri was an escape from that job”
      > It was
      And nowadays it seems Micchi may be pressured enough he can’t keep up the blog posts, but at least the sidebar is updated.

      He’s fine, nothing happened, but the stress probably got on him Omochikaeri had to come to a halt. Not to fret, vndb is always there if you need any info (or I hope), and Micchi is kind of hanging out with us in the aforementioned Starlight Stage community.

  • 23. RIPomochikaeri  |  October 24, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    Remembered this place and surprised that no more posts will be made. Sidebar is updated but that’s still sad.

  • 24. viren21  |  December 27, 2021 at 11:27 am

    my only source for monthly releases is gone. I really enjoyed first impressions opinions of Zen. it makes my day

  • 25. Ilham Emnur  |  April 4, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    thanks for your hardwork Michi :’)
