VN of the Month January 2003 - Moekan

Moekan is the only masterpiece of the month.

1. F no Fuuin Fの封印 [030124] Girl's Software
Main character is a university student who studies local history. As a part of his investigation he visits ancient shrine maiden island. There he finds and breaks a mirror, which is followed by a dream of a woman who lost her mind and wore girl clothes. Mysterious incidents start to happen from that point. What secret is sealed in maiden that came to his dream?
Main character needs to solve an incident in a month's time before the next lunar eclipse. Every heroine has the same development, so story gaps do not get filled with next playthroughs. Character relations are vaguely depicted. Graphics is probably the only attraction point.

2. Heart de Roommate はぁと de ルームメイト [030124] Angel Smile 1 2 3 4 5 6
During his transfer to a new school, Yusuke starts to think his luck couldn't get worse. Due to a series of inexplicable, unfortunate accidents, he is left in a strange city with nowhere to live. What is he supposed to do now?
Suddenly and completely unexpectedly, he runs into an old friend, whom he hasn't seen for years. The hyper-active Asumi decides that due to an old debt that she must repay (Yusuke can't even remember what she's talking about!), she will help him out with a place to live. She then drags him along to her dorm, where she announces to her two roommates that Yusuke will now be living with them! But it's an all-girl dorm!
Things continue to get more and more complicated. First, boys are forbidden in a girls' dorm, so Yusuke has to dress up like a girl each and every day in order to go to class. Also, he is apparently the new housekeeper and is made to do all the cleaning. And they make him sleep in the closet, of all places! Last but not least, he finds himself slowly but surely drawn to these girls, and begins to care for them….
Game is localized and has English reviews.

3. Komorebi no Namikimichi 木漏れ日の並木道 [030124] F&C FC01
You play as Kouichi, who lost his wife years ago. The game places you in a love story involving six girls.
The first visual novel based on life after main heroine dies (Clannad does not count). The atmosphere is bright and lovely. But thanks to impact on child raising, heroines are given relatively little time, and scenario feels sober overall.

4. Marginal マージ ~MARGINAL~ [030124] White Clarity
Shio lost his parents when he was young and lived with his grandfather since then. When he is at border of death, he gives Shio the key to a house located in a village and tells him that he has the right to choose if he wants to live there. Thus, he goes to the village thinking that the house is abandoned, but he finds that five maids live there. Soon, another maid who came from the woods joins them. Shio starts living with them at the house and thus, his new life begins...
Game is notable for having the same scenario writer who wrote Kuon no Kizuna, and he's the only thing that saves this game with a horrible synopsis. He tones down eroticism and develops relations extensively. There's a week for common route, then individual routes begin. All the mysteries are only revealed in the final Marge route.

5. Tenohira o, Taiyou ni てのひらを、たいように [030124] Clear 1 2
Haruno Akio lives his days without interest in anything, going to school for a vague reason he himself does not remember. One day a transfer student comes to his class, claiming she knows him and bringing with her the much needed wind of change that revitalizes his stale life and lets him rebuild his relationships with his estranged childhood friends.
First route is automatic bad end, then can make positive choices for one of heroines. Pure heart and friendship are main motives. If you can tolerate loli characters and nostalgic atmosphere, it can be enjoyable.

6. Moekan モエかん [030131] KeroQ 1

This is where the final works of AC Company's android combat maids (resembling beautiful young girls) are done, also where these maids get there communication training.

There is an English review.

7. Separate Blue セパレイトブルー [030131] Frontwing 1
The game begins on June 14, Saturday, in the coffee restaurant Amica Cips. Here, the protagonist wakes up and introduces himself as a transfer student who moved from Tokyo to his uncle's home in town Mihatoya City about three months ago, in early March. His uncle and aunt are currently out of Japan.
There's no plot, so writers are given full freedom. Because of different writers approaches, routes vary in quality greatly. Might be the first attempt to produces such combiner visual novel.

8. Snow [030131] Studio Mebius 1 2
The story of Snow starts when the main protagonist Izumo Kanata visits a small village called Ryujinmura (village of the dragon god) to help his cousin Tsugumi manage a local hotel with hot springs. In the village there is an old legend: In ancient times, the village is protected by the dragon goddess. However, one day the dragon goddesses fell in love with a human, which is strictly forbidden, and this incident finally caused the village to be always covered by snow after that. The game then tells the daily life of the protagonist in the village, and finally links the story to the legend of dragon goddess.
There aren't many nakige up to this point, so nakige are being compared to main Key's works. And it that regard Snow looks like a degraded verson of Kanon/Air. The tear is squeezed by killing treasured for so long heroines, and even the True Snow scenario that's supposed to lift the sadness, does not really live up to expectations.

Basically a game about solving five girls' problems. Atmosphere is good, but scenario is lacking. H events are rather frequent (at least 2 times per herone), long and dark for pure love story.
