VN of the Month November 2001 - Nijuubako

Kazoku Keikaku , Daiakuji and Nijuubako make the masterpieces of the month, but the winner is Nijuubako

1. Deep Voice [011102] Apricot
The story is set in an old Western-style hospital where Takumi was confined after he was in an accident. Since then Takumi has experienced an odd condition where he can see the "deep voices" of the past events bound in different parts of the hospital. He seems to be able to also slip into other people's consciousness while being asleep. Together with Amano Aki, a journalist, he wants to investigate about the mysterious past of the hospital.
Suspense hospital story. The structure is quite complex and directing is good, but story is not special at all. Forced H scene only subtract from attractiveness.

2. Kazoku Keikaku 家族計画 [011102] D.O. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

Tsukasa, a fiercely independent youth who lost his parents at an early age and now spends his days working at a Chinese restaurant to make ends meet.
Reluctant to form interpersonal ties lest they be shattered, Tsukasa is nonetheless unable to abandon the illegal immigrant girl he finds collapsed in the alley behind his workplace one day. Confronted by her utter helplessness he takes her in, an encounter that opens the door to a new life - one where he faces the challenge and wonder of being no longer alone.
Tsukasa soon finds himself at the unwilling nexus of even more lives, attracting a band of misfits and social outcasts around him that swell beyond the confines of his small apartment. They find shelter in an abandoned house, where despite Tsukasa's lingering doubts a pact is formed: the "family project", an alliance of mutual convenience and utilitarian support that despite the mistrust and antagonism among its members soon comes to mean much more.
Game's localized and has English reviews.

3. Puchi Cherry ~Anata to Iru Kisetsu~ ぷちチェリー~あなたといる季節~ [011102] Giga

Koichi returns to home town for the first time in ten years. Ten years changed characters of his old friends, but memories of the past remain the same. Will he find his loved person till school festival?
Charage with not so good scenario (many contradictions), but lovely characters. Text is not emotionally transferred. Three of heroines are old friends, and game features some nice reunion scenes, and the last heroine is a newcomer.

4. Memories Zero ~Aoi Hikari no Yakusoku~ Memories Zero~蒼い光の約束~ [011109] Euphony Production

A group of friends live in the neighborhood and study together. At the end of the midterm test there is finally time to stretch feathers and spend time going to camping trips, participating in school events and enjoying everyday life. At this time Satoru starts to have feelings for one girl...
Timetable SIM without serious advancements in any field.

5. Sister☆Boy しすたぁ☆ボーイ [011109] Sequence 1

Your parents are going to leave you behind due to their work. You are Shun Miyama. You find out about this one day before their departure, and you also find out that they have already picked out your school and a place to live. You are waiting for Kasumi Sagara, a girl from your apartment to pick you up, but you feel strange. Well, guess what...
The apartment you're going to be staying in is restricted to girls. They think you're a girl! Since you were little, people have always mistaken you as a girl. However, you're all man inside; face it, you're in heaven now!!
Surprisingly orthodox love story. The girl with the highest favorability at the time of decisive branching gets her route. Psychology is depicted truthfully, but drama lacks impact.

6. Sister Heart ~Kokoro no Kakera~ Sister Heart~ココロのカケラ~ [011109] Ciel

Main character is able to hear the voice of people hearts. One day his younger sister gets into a traffic accident resulting in a coma state. Returning home from the hospital protagonist encounters three angels who claim that sister's soul is in disintegrated state. He agrees to cooperate with the angels to restore the soul of his sister. For that he will need to oppose fallen angel mischief.
Three angels are of different personalities and balance is set to tilt to one of the sides. So game is kind of SIM-heavy with the whole heart voice system and different angels stats. One playthrough is just two hours, and it's mostly about the capturing souls gameplay.

7. Twins 2 -Ren'ai Miman- Twins2 -恋愛未満- [011116] Discovery 1

In the previous "Twins," Kureha was able to hook up with Tsubasa Honami. This story takes us 6 months later down the road. Kureha's twin sister, Nao, is depressed because her brother takes all the girls she likes. As she's walking down the street, she sees a cute girl jump out in traffic during a red light. Nao runs over and saves her just in time. Nao looses consciousness, and when she wakes up, she's on the girl's lap.

She finds out that her name is Nami Sakanoue, and that she is one of the triplets in love with Kureha. Kureha is a lucky guy, but how will Nao's love end up? What will Kureha do? Not only will you find the girls from the previous "Twins," you'll find 6 new girls appearing in this powered up version! Lets get wild and get it on with many beautiful girls!
Game resembles Sapphism no Gensou atmosphere in some routes as here boy has to pretend being a girl. Conversations and tempo are the strong sides, length and scenario aren't so good. Genre is close to moege.

8. Yukigatari 雪語り [011116] Tarte

The game takes place in a snowy mountain area, where the protagonist takes part in a skiing course. Of course he isn't alone and, conveniently-enough, ends up with a lot of female company.
Tarte first game ends up being a bugged moege, and a short one as well. First playthrough is 5 hours, but subsequent playthroughs with skipping only take some 40 minutes.

9. Hooligan フーリガン [011122] Frontwing 1 2

Yukito Nogi, a high-school student living by himself in the city, was out walking one night when a strange object fell from the sky... crashing straight into him. This object turns out to be a cosmic force, its power so great that it splits Yukito into three different entities, each composed of one part of his psyche. It also happens to give each part enormous psychic powers!
However, he's only just started arguing with himself, when three different factions converge on him all at once. A trio of aliens, led by the self-aggrandizing scientist Olga Mengele, want to steal Yukito's power for themselves. Yuki and Yuka, a pair of sister demon hunters, believe Yukito to be a demon that must be sealed. And of course Hiromi Togo -- alias Trigun, defender of justice -- wants to use these events to prove herself as a superhero.
There are three scenarios each consisting of 6 episodes. Each episode has its structure, so we can speak about 18 stories. By atmosphere game resembles Captain Love the most. Text is very simplistic to imitate superhero anime, genre is bakage. Card battles are short and easy enough not to hurt the overall pace. There are 2-3 H events for each heroine in PC version, some are animated.

10. Meippai Athlete めいっぱい☆あすりぃと [011122] Active

Let's open a joint college festival for three schools! Such was the suggestion of main character to the student council. Somehow the plan is carried out and now the girl school, the geek school and the celebrity school are in the midst of joint preparation.
Card battles are deployed at the end to beat other teams in cultural festival. Otherwise a common moege with too many pregnancy endings. Each route is very short.

11. Metamor Fantasy メタモルファンタジー [011122] Escu:de

In this world; fairies, witches and all kinds of strange creatures live in a peaceful coexistence. Protagonist is Hatayama, he is a kind of monster that looks exactly like a small plush bear. 
He enrolled in the magic academy to study magic but lately his interest switched more towards the girls in the school than the magic studies. His magic allows him to transform himself to any monster he previously met. But to learn the magic to transform himself to a real human, he first has to master that divine magic called "love".
Raising SIM + card battles + insult H scenes + magic girl. Somehow I don't like either element.

12. Pandora no Yume パンドラの夢 [011122] Pajamas Soft 1 2 3

The story starts on a summer holiday training camp for members of the arts club. As they are exploring the basement of the European-styled school building, they find a nursing robot called Suu, albeit non functional due to a used-up battery. After being brought back to life by the main character, Hirano Yuito, the robot, of female appearance, recognizes him as her new master.
On the final day, the protagonist prepares to leave after spending an enjoyable week. An earthquake occurs, but he dismisses it as a casual event.
However, before Yuito knows what's happening, all of them are warped back to a week earlier, memories altogether.
As the pattern keeps looping, Suu seems to remember faint traces of the week period, and uncannily starts depicting traits of humanity.
There are English reviews.

13. ReNN ~Another Story of Works Doll~ ReNN ~Another Story of Works Doll~ [011122] TopCat

Five years have passed since puppeteer Senjo formed the complete body of "sub-doll". The dolls  evolve each year, but the price tag remains sky high. 
Main character works at a plant and can't believe his luck to have found a sub-doll Renn...
Not sure why we need another story if pretty much noone liked SIM part of the first game.

14. Yuurei wa Doukyonin!? ゆうれいは同居人!? [011122] Yui Koubou 1

Tatsuya is a white-colar worker. One night after work he went back to his apartment, and found there Akane, a strange highschool girl, who is actually a ghost. And she wants to live with him as his new roommate. Even worse, she starts to follow him to his work, too.
What he will do?!
Ainos in the new Sogna, and this game looks totally like a Sogna game would. However, after a single road development there are four branches here with different heroines. Game's a bakage with animation as main attraction.

15. Shinsetsu Kamiya Ukyou ~Shokuzai~ 真説神谷右京~贖罪~ [011123] Altacia

Ukyo is registered as a resident lawyer at Lithuania Law Firm. 
His division does arbitrage over reduction of excess debts of companies. One day two detective ask Ukyo to cooperate with finding manager of such company Okita who is suspected in bills fraud. Ukyo protects his client from detectives pressure, but one day Okita suddenly admits the crime and wishes to go to police. The night of the same day Ukyo spends a night with a girl. Five years later they get to meet again at surprising circumstances.
This is the fourth work out of six visual novels dedicated to Kamiya Ukyou. Game's based on real events, so it's more about reality and impressions and not so much about a coherent story. There is no good ending, and the best variant you can get is be following exact actions of the hero that day. Since there's a big map to decide where to go, difficulty to get a proper ending is very high. Very unusual work for visual novels media, but unusual does not necessarily mean good.

16. Ajimu ~Kaigan Monogatari~ あじむ~海岸物語~ [011130] Arpeggio

Seventeen year old Nakaido Hirosuke is just your average high school student. One morning as he arrives at the train station on his way to school, he catches sight of a beautiful girl, Ajimu Yasuna, and immediately falls for her. The two of them get to know each other and become friends, but he can't confess his feelings and she is unsure of hers. As events and other people present obstacles for the potential couple to clear, their relationship begins to develop and their feelings become clear.
Pure love story, but with abrupt end.

17. Daiakuji 大悪司 [011130] Alice Soft 1 2 3 4 5 6

In a parallel universe, feminist "Womenrica" (a group called WIME) won World War II, and forced a female-centric constitution upon the defeated Japan. Japanese city governments "outsource" the task of peacekeeping to local organizations, all lead by females.
Former juvenile delinquent, Yamamoto Akuji was one of the POW's who fought alongside Japan, only to end up having to become a prisoner of war for a year after losing against WIME. 
Once he is released from prison, Akuji heads to his home for the first time in three years, the grand city of Osaka where he is heir to the largest gang called the Wakame Gumi, in which his grandfather, Yamamoto Ippatsu, who was a legend among others "properly" inherited after sleeping with the daughter of the former landlord many years ago. 
While initially unhappy with how much the war has affected the cities setting, Akuji plans on visiting the love of his life, Haku Minka, and figures that she has grown to be a beautiful, and much more mature woman from the last time he saw her before being deployed to the war three years prior. As this warms his heart, he happily lingers to his home in hopes of having a celebration for his return. 
Akuji's moments of relief due to his house being still in one piece gets cut short when he finds that one of his grandfather's former lovers, Ichihashi Ran, has become the new boss of the Wakame Gang. He gets informed that he is no longer allowed to stay within the household of the Wakame Gang due to his gender, and the fact that only women can be at the ruling position of factions, due to WIME winning the war and changing many laws. Akuji is also told that his father passed away during the war and that his grandfather was absent from Osaka for a large amount of time in order to find and battle someone more powerful than he was, meaning that there was no other decent choice but to make Ran the leader of the Wakame Gang. Akuji, angered by the fact he no longer has a place to reside in, attempts to fight back as Ran orders the gang's lackeys to subdue him. Thanks to having his body worn out from jail, Akuji loses the fight and is thrown out of his residence.
Akuji then shortly wakes up after only to become more infuriated, and takes out his frustration on an old drunkard bothering him, he gets stopped by the two Vice Leaders of the Youth Service Group, and is taken captive by them, Akuji then later manages to trick the both of them into liking him after lying about making his gang's most notable recipe, and instead treats them both to an amazing session.
Due to how easy it was for him to subdue the two Vice Leaders, Akuji plans on using the Youth Service Group to rebel against the Wakame Gang in hopes of retrieving his household back. He shortly afterwords sleeps with the main leader of the Youth Service Group and makes careful preparations. Thanks to his past grudges against WIME, who have most of the power in Osaka, and the stress with having to deal with a corrupt woman taking his household, Akuji takes it upon himself to dominate Osaka, so that the city can be in proper hands once more.
Soon after, his associates and personal trainers find word that Akuji has come back to Osaka, and end up joining the Youth Service Group to support Akuji, not only them, but a young girl who was a reserved, but powerful student by the name of Takega Satsu claiming to be Akuji's own aunt joins him as well.
With multiple territories, blood to be split, and the management of his slowly rising company on the line, will Akuji be able to fulfill his dream of conquering Osaka all the while maintaining a genuine relationship with the choice of one of five different women who can potentially become his wife in the future, all while having different types of fun with multiple other women at the same time?
It's a kill or be killed, high-stakes conquest as Akuji and his gang head straight to the top of Osaka! 
There are English reviews.

18. Ekiben 駅弁 [011130] Uran

They are outraged that Kentaro was doing that right at the station depot, so now they are sending thugs after Kentaro one by one.
A weird ero-tilt bakage. There is a stupid minigame for the fights with thugs. There are 6 chapters enough for 4-5 hours of play time.

19. Emblem Emblem ~エンブレム~ [011130] Malt

He wants an ordinary school life, but his classmates start to evade him, and clan business gets in the way. Will he be able to find a girlfriend in these circumstances?
Love comedy with comedy occupying first half and love second part. There are 5 heroines and 6 endings. The degree of fun and eroticism varies from one character to another to a maximum of 3 H events. Characters are of moege level, but yakuza comedy is decent.

20. Iris イリス [011130] Penguin Works

Main character and his partner Seti helped two adventurers who were attacked on their way back from friend's wedding. The innkeeper asked them to find the attackers, and that marked the beginning of their journey.
Iris is the fairy of protagonist, but she does not get her route or ending. Game resembles Slayers anime the most. Genre is RPG. Territory is limited just to inside the town. Number of battles is small. Game ends after finding the criminals, so it's more of a detective mystery than a might and magic fantasy adventure.

The "Kannagi no Tori" get sent out just before someone dies to retrieve their soul and bring it back.
However, one "Kannagi no Tori," Ikaru, is different. He feels wrong about death, and typically when he is sent out instead of letting the death take place and retrieving the soul, he usually interferes with fate by preventing an accident, convincing someone not to commit suicide, or rescuing the person in danger to save their life. He still has not retrieved a single soul. He is given a "final mission" to prove himself as a "Kannagi no Tori," and if he fails, he will cease to exist.
His mission is to retrieve the soul of a young boy, Watanaki Ruu, who is to die in a car accident on the first of June, in about one month. Over this month Ikaru has several interactions with Ruu and his family, and feels an usual tie to Ruu, and doesn't want to take his soul... but his fellow "Kannagi no Tori" friends are trying to make sure he gets his mission done because they don't want to see their friend cease to exist, and at the same time, they have missions of their own involving people around Ruu as well.

I used to play everything only during first youtube channel since I needed to make videos of everything.
Since then two of my important visual novel sources have been cut, and I have to do with the rest somehow.
Blue text is usually retelling of Japanese reviews, that's why it's so short and dry.
Playing 1-2 visual novel per reviewed month is all I can afford time-wise with a pace of new publication every two days. Never played Daiakuji. I avoid RPG for now as they require more time and dedication. Also need at least interface translation to feel relatively comfortable in non-translated RPG.
