Cats working in a cafe. Girls working in a cafe. Stray cat taken in and given shelter. Abandoned girl accepted into a community. Is there a feline trend going on this month? NEKO WORKs’ Nekopara vol.2 Shimai Neko no Sucre is much anticipated, but HARUKAZE’s Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart is also surprisingly funny. The fandisc Otome Riron to Sonogo no Shuuhen -Belle Époque- and CUBE’s Mamiya-kunchi no Itsutsugo Jijou are also sure to please. There should be plenty to keep you busy this month. How purrfect~!
Zen seems to be MIA again. There’s not much green in winter.
Happy new year! There’s not much to look forward to this month, so it’s probably a good time to catch up on your backlog. Leading the way is Nitro+’s action-packed TOKYO NECRO and ninetail’s RPG sequel GEARS of DRAGOON 2. There’s also a meddling protagonist in Studio Ryokucha’s Hanikami CLOVER and a meddling committee in GIGA’s Amaekata wa Kanojo Nari ni.. If you want more Ryukishi07, there’s the horror doujin title Iwaihime.
The delay this month was entirely my fault, so sorry about that folks. Besides forgetting that the December post existed, I was running around towards the end of last month. So that happened. As far as the new year of eroge is concerned… We are off to quite a lousy start. If you are lucky there may be one or two games worth playing in January, otherwise pretend its still 2015 and finish off those games.
The winter season upon us and Azarashi Soft offers another snow-capped romantic tale in Amakano -Second Season-. You may also take the time to pass on life’s lessons to your dear imoutos in Galette’s Onii-chan Teacher ~Himitsu no Jugyou o Kibou Shimasu!~. If you’re living in the Southern hemisphere, maybe something summer-themed like Parasol’s QUINTUPLE☆SPLASH will tickle your fancy. Spend the end of the year with the ones you love!
Note: Zen seems to be having internet problems (or he’s just hiding from me and playing Fallout 4), so he’ll post his comments when he’s around.
There’s plenty of anticipation over the new FrontWing title created by the Grisaia staff, Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori, while Hulotte’s Yomesagashi ga Hakadorisugite Yabai. promises to make your heart aflutter. In addition to Digital Cute’s delayed Tincle★Twinkle Festival!, SAMOYED SMILE’s Samidare Growing Up! and Jitaku Studio’s Naderebo! should be fun and comedic. If you want to play something rare, how about Clochette’s Koko Kara Natsu no Innocence? They’re not all balloons anymore!
So, someone needs to stop Micchi from playing MMOs ever again. Else this is what happens. For my part, stuff at the end of the month. As far as the actual releases go, mostly filled with meh, some eh.., and one or two whoohoos.
There’s plenty of good reading this month! makura’s Sakura no Uta is still at the top of many people’s lists, but for me, it will be Us:track’s atmospheric romance tale Koi-Kakeru Shin-Ai Kanojo. Chuable’s Watashi ga Suki Nara “Suki” tte Itte! and Lump of Sugar’s Kodomo no Asobi also focus on the romance theme, albeit in different ways. Of course, it wouldn’t be a normal month without some magic, and Glacé’s Amanosora Retrospect fits the bill quite nicely.
Mostly bland month filled to the brim with generic titles. Can only hope to skim a layer of goodness off the top of this steaming pile of mediocrity. I won’t ask for much, just please put a teeny bit of effort into more than artwork.
It took 10 years, but makura’s Sakura no Uta is actually coming out. Those that can’t get enough of Sayori’s art can enjoy SMILE’s Boku to Koi Suru Ponkotsu Akuma.. Take initiative and find yourself a girlfriend in GIGA’s Ren’ai Phase. If you still have your Juukishi disc, you can get AkabeiSoft3’s knight maiden drama Seikishi Melty☆Lovers for free!
Another month filled with disappointment, mediocrity, and backlogs. Yet at the bottom of it all there is some hope for a few enjoyable games, at least more than usual that’s for sure. Most will at best be enjoyable time wasters which already makes it a pretty good month, but one or two may actually end up being good. Not that I expect it but hey you never know when a game may turn out to be a diamond in the rough.
Sayori and Korie Riko are busy this Comiket with their personal works Nekopara Vol.0 Minazuki Neko-tachi no Nichijou! and Hakoniwa no Gakuen. ALICESOFT’s Rance03 Leazas Kanraku gets a remake, while chara-ge PRIMAL×HEARTS2 gets a sequel from Marmalade. Karin fans can rejoice as it’s now her turn in BaseSon’s Shin Koihime†Eiyuutan 2 ~Otome Enran☆Sangokushi Engi [Gi]~.
Love it or hate it not a month with much substance. Pick up the one or two games that suit you then carry on with those overflowing backlogs.
