Kaeru nyo Panyon is the only masterpiece game of August 1997.

VN of the Month July 1997 - Tokimeki Memorial Drama Series Vol. 1: Nijiiro no Seishun

August 23, 2017
There are no masterpieces this month. Main candidates are Tokimeki Memorial Drama Series Vol. 1: Nijiiro no Seishun and Shinseiki Evangelion Koutetsu no Girlfriend, but the latter one has little in the story department, it's more of a bakage for fans, so my choice is Tokimeki Memorial Drama Series Vol. 1: Nijiiro no Seishun that was a very fresh game with those mini-games incorporated. It's only shortcoming is not sufficient length, but overall it's a very good quality product.

VN of the Month June 1997 - Zoku Hatsukoi Monogatari ~Shuugaku Ryokou~

August 21, 2017
We get only Zoku Hatsukoi Monogatari ~Shuugaku Ryokou~ as masterpiece in June.

To Heart is the only masterpiece of May 1997.

Gao Gao! 3rd ~Wild Force~ / GAOGAO!3rd ~ワイルドフォース~ [Four-Nine]

August 19, 2017
Foreword: I've noted the series quite long ago, but only when approached 4th final work decided to play the prequel that's directly connected with 4th part. 

VN of the Month April 1997 - Canaan ~Yakusoku no Chi~

August 15, 2017
The only masterpiece game of February is Yatsu no Na wa Diamond

VN of the Month January 1997 - Rookies

August 15, 2017
Ryouki no Ori Dai 2 Shou and Rookies are the masterpieces of January. But Rookies is a more traditional story-focused visual novel with charming characters and lots of kind humor. Rookies is VN of January 1997.

VN of the Year 1996 - Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO

August 14, 2017
The best year so far, actually. I really hope that I'll be able to say the same about every forthcoming year. 84 works during the year amounts for an average of 7 works each month - a very saturated year.

VN of the Month December 1996 - Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO

August 13, 2017
Kichikuou Rance and Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO are masterpieces of the month, but even Rance can't compete with YU-NO this month.

VN of the Month November 1996 - Mashou no Kao

August 12, 2017
After starry October nothing really shines this month. If we narrow down the candidates I'd have to choose from Mashou no KaoHigh School DaysSotsugyou Shashin 2 ~Raspberry Dream~Tsuioku
and Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo: Hihoushima Arata Naru Sangeki. Last one is out as PS1 exclusive (win version nowhere to be found). Sotsugyou Shashin 2 is out as a difficult type of game for modern players. Tsuioku is way too obscure. High School Days is a really nice game, but even warm vanilla school game can't really invoke much interest with poor graphics and no voicing. I can't believe myself, but I'm nominating Mink's Mashou no Kao as VN of November 1996. This crazy nymphet game has a strong personality and leaves a lasting impact through the years.

Es no Houteishiki / Esの方程式 [Abodagio Powers]

August 11, 2017


Foreword: I did not want to review it. But then I watched the hentai OVA of its preuel - Mystery of the Necronomicon (黒の断章 Kuro no Danshō) and it's a total blast. I highly recommend to watch it to everyone. A very memorable and bloody occult detective story. There was no anime version of the sequel, so I rushed in.

VN of the Month October 1996 - Bounty Hunter Rudy

August 10, 2017
Star PlatinumAngel HaloStone Walkers and Bounty Hunter Rudy are masterpieces of the month. That's a difficult choice! I believe that Bounty Hunter Rudy is the worthiest for being VN of October 1996.

VN of the Month September 1996 - Sakura Taisen

August 09, 2017
Ma Doll and Sakura Taisen are the masterpieces of the month, but I prefer Sakura Taisen as VN of the Month

Be-Yond ~Kurodaishou ni Mirareteru~ / ビ・ ヨンド ~黒大将に見られてる~ [Silky's]

August 08, 2017


Foreword: I hate bakage. And yet I'm reviewing yet another bakage. Why? Mostly because together with YU-NO, these are the last two works of the Great Elf/Silky's team, after that Elf is going to loose too many staff members and is going to rerelease old works for Windows, stamp eroge works alongside with slice of life works. No more crazy adventure spirit afterwards. It's a historical moment to visual novels industry. Oh and I liked the two hentai OVAs of it immensely back then. I'll assume everyone seen them since I'm going to compare these works.

VN of the Month August 1996 - Be-Yond ~Kurodaishou ni Mirareteru~

August 07, 2017
Be-Yond ~Kurodaishou ni Mirareteru~ is the only masterpiece of the month.

VN of the Month July 1996 - Kizuato

August 06, 2017
KizuatoNOëL NOT DiGITAL and Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! ~We've Been Waiting for You~ are masterpieces of the month, but Kizuato is the most fundamental one and thus is VN of the Month

VN of the Month June 1996 - Es no Houteishiki

August 05, 2017

Kakyuusei  and Es no Houteishiki are masterpieces of the month, but my favorite is Es no Houteishiki and furthermore it's played like a regular novel and can be enjoyed nowadays.

There aren't masterpieces this month, but I like Rouge no Densetsu the most this month.

Ushinawareta Rakuen / 失われた楽園 [Silky's]

August 03, 2017

Foreword: I erroneously marked this game as eroge and now it's the time to check out what it's really about.

Merry Go Round / メリーゴーランド [Mischief]

August 02, 2017

Foreword: Cyberpunk erotic action police story made me really curious. I was very skeptical of the Sammies review since he spent too much money to get windows version and turned to hate this work. And so I went to check it out myself...

VN of the Month March 1996 - Mujintou Monogatari 3 - A.D. 1999 Tokyo

August 01, 2017

Mujintou Monogatari 3 - A.D. 1999 Tokyo is the only masterpiece of the month.
