VN of the Month August 1995 - Isaku

Isaku and Ryouki no Ori are masterpieces of the month, but the winner is Isaku since it's more traditional visual novel.

1. Gakkou de Atta Kowai Hanashi 学校であった怖い話 [950804] Pandora Box 1 2

Sakagami Shuuichi, a member of the school newspaper, is asked to gather information about the school's seven mysteries. He meets with six other students after school to listen to their stories.
There is an English review.

2. Hyaku Monogatari ~Honto ni Atta Kowai Hanashi~ 百物語 ~ほんとにあった怖い話~ [950804] Hudson Soft 1

There is one hundred selectable candles. Each candle leads to a short story a few minutes long.
There is one small English review.

3. Immoral Study Scenario 1: Shirakawa Reiko インモラルスタディ シナリオ1 白川玲子 [950811] Scoop 1 2 3 4 5 6
You are professor Hitosuji, a well-known teacher who possesses the remarkable gift of turning weak students into straight A ones. What's the secret of professor's method?

Game is localized and has English reviews.

4. Kirishima Shinryoushitsu no Gogo 霧島診療室の午後 [950811] May-Be Soft 1
Kyoko is a young woman who does some counseling in a high school; she must talk to people, listen to their problems, and try to solve them. Naturally, this being a hentai game, the problems are usually restricted to sexual fetishes, and the counseling often consists of helping the patients in such ways that new problems of a similar kind might arise...
Quite a loose ero-centered story about counseling on sex problems.

5. Frontier フロンティア [950825] Frontier
A collection of three stories:
1. 遠雷ワイバーン is about a bounty hunter who stays at the inn and is requested to rescue a kidnapped girl.
2. 快感空間「愛」is about a couple who get summoned to another world one day. The goddess there gives a test to make love to three her maids.
3. "Blood line" is about a an adult store owner Eleanor who supplies space ships with sex dolls. She learns about a suspicious disappearance of a space ship that is rumored to be hijacked by a terrorist group. It's a multi-site adventure that shows another point of view after initial playthrough.
Stories are set in some desolate future and quite elaborately done. It might be the peak of multiple stories genre, but whatever complicated prelude is, it inevitably leads to multiple H events.

6. Isaku 遺作 [950825] Elf 1 2 3 4
Unlike the sequels that follows you take on the role of Kenta, a high school student trapped by Isaku, the eldest brother of the Itou Family on the fourth floor of an abandoned school building together with fellow classmates and a teacher.
The main objective of the game is to have the player and his companions escape from a locked school building, and to avoid having your companions captured by Isaku.
The only way out is through a stairwell, the doors of which are locked on every floor. The player must search the rooms on each floor for clues and items that will lead him to locate the keys that will open the stairwell doors and allow him to descend to the next level and ultimately to a final confrontation with Isaku himself.
Famous rapist series of Elf, but this first game has an ordinary high school student as protagonist, so it can be enjoyed. There is one English review. First things first: this game has an amazing point and click system, probably ideal one. There are items to pick up at school, but if misuse some needed item, you won't be able to get a happy ending, cruel as that. There are few VNs with escape as main theme, so it's a nice treat. The graphics of Elf here are in its blossom and it's especially cool that the most attractive character is Kumiko-sensei and not those multiple girls. Game basically has no flaws and manages to have all the elements in sync, so it's a masterpiece, just not for everyone.

7. May Club 五月倶楽部 [950825] Desire 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
The year is 2023, and you play the role of Hajime Kudo, a young man who has just finished his studies at Jiyugaoka University. Hajime is enjoying some downtime after graduation before he is scheduled to start his training with a CAT company and enter the corporate world as a "wage-slave". One February afternoon you receive a flyer advertising a Virtual Reality Dating Simulator called May Club, apparently the most advanced human interface unit of this type to be developed. In May Club, you can supposedly act out any desire you wish with other May Club users, a world where "virtually" anything is possible and physically represented, and inhibitions are forgotten. Naturally, you're intrigued, and make it a point to spend your vacation time at May Club hoping to meet the woman of your dreams before starting your new life.
One of the well known old dating sims. Has many English reviews.

8. Moratorium モラトリアム [950825] Gloria
Your father remarries and you end up living together with three new grown-up sisters.
This work has some gag situations in addition to H events. It can sometimes be seen as a unique comic book and it's easy to read.

9. Ryouki no Ori 猟奇の檻 [950825] Studio Polaris 1 2
A series of strange disappearances occurs in Zeroshiki Department Store, one of the largest shopping malls in Japan. The management is concerned and unwilling to involve the authorities. For an unknown reason they turn to one of their salesmen, a young man named Kuniharu Shitaku, requesting him to investigate the case and find out who or what is behind these disappearances. Kuniharu must explore the mall and gather information by talking to shop managers and staff, most of which are attractive young women who may not be what they seem at first glance.
An ADV that incorporates time system. Every map movement takes some time. Suspense story about missing people that turns out to be about organs shipment. Even if you find the criminal, it's only the peak of the iceberg and the puppeteer remains unknown. Graphics is great. There are multiple endings and some of them are quite cheerful in contrast with the dark suspense mood of the game. Of course, there are a lot of bad endings as well, so a guide is almost a necessity in such time driven game. Very original game worthy of masterpiece title, but the modern remake of the game makes old version obsolete.

10. Sakura no Mori 櫻の杜 ~さくらのもり~ [950825] Active 1
Girls school recently started to adopt male students. There's an old urban legend about a ghost called "young lady" at school and three ghost study club members are set to investigate it.
It's lesbian comedy. And it's more lesbian than a comedy. It's more or less fun through the middle, but don't expect to see any kind of story development here. Yet another bakage with emphasis on H-scenes.

11. Trigger 2 トリガー2 [950825] ZyX 1
Trigger 2 consists of three unrelated stories. The protagonist of the first one is Kerberos, the mythical guardian hellhound. Following a dispute with Lucifer, Kerberos was banned to Earth, where he assumed human form and eventually decided to battle monsters who had been sexually assaulting young women.
In the second story, a seventeen-year-old modern-day girl named Ryoko is magically transferred to a parallel world known as Ryudo. There, she receives painful sexual "training" ans is send to battle machine enemies.
The third story is set in American Old West and focuses on Marie, a female rogue who wants to pass for a young man. The rest of the plot depicts various sexual encounters of hers with men and women, consensual and non-consensual alike.
Zyx continues the animated games race along with Sogna and Himeya Soft. But Trigger 2 is almost entirely committed to H events unlike his competitors.

12. Shin Youjuu Kyoushitsu Ecstasy Adventure 真・妖獣教室 エクスタシーアドベンチャー [950825] Dez Climax

The Earth is under assault by aliens called beasts. They choose this green land as their breeding grounds. But in the Universe there is also an organization that opposes these beasts, and its agents are instantly sent to the Earth. A new round of confrontation starts now.
It's basically an anime presented as a game. Great move, but difficult to justify such medium while anime presents a much more comfortable approach.
