VN of the Month November 2002 - Baldr Force

Blocked games surpass normal ones three times this month. Baldr Force is the only masterpiece of the month. I'm true to my fetish and thus reviewing Gunsister

1. Baldr Force [021101] Team Baldrhead 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

As a hacker of the renowned hacking group "Steppenwolf", Tooru Souma and his partners earn their living by hacking into servers and selling the information they steal.
As the last hacking before disbanding their group, they hacked into a military server, but soon they find this is a setup by the military to lure terrorists, and they were drawn into battle between two factions. At the end, one of Tooru Souma's friends was killed by an unknown Simulacrum, while most of other group members have been arrested. To investigate and avenge his friend's death, Tooru Souma accepted the offer to join the military.
Game is localized and has many English reviews.

2. Soukou no Shiro 蒼煌の城 [021101] Octave

Main character comes to a castle where princess is taken away by demons. Together with his childhood friend they managed to rescue the princess, but another person got captured. No more half-hearted measures. What kingdom needs is the assault on demon territories.
Typical dungeon crawler. Just attacking and using special actions is enough for any boss. H element is thin, just once per heroine. Game is rather short, around 10 hours long.

3. Re-Laive [021108] Klein

Main character gets to the same class as his childhood friend Kazue in the new school year. By a twist of fate they even get to share the same dormitory room. One day she confesses to protagonist, but he only sees a childhood friend in her. This year is going to be unlike any other.
Quite a meaningless setting without any explanation. Protagonist lays down multiple girls from school, but keeps on pushing childhood friend Kazue away endlessly. Can't really find any appeal points here apart from graphics.

4. Thread Colors ~Sayonara no Mukougawa~ スレッド カラーズ ~さよならの向こう側~ [021114] HuneX

Childhood friends and new mates are met in high school and the town hospital when the main character of the game interacts with four teenage girls and a leggy guidance counselor. As the game begins, the player wakes up at a hospital with memory loss and struggles to remember a life lived and friendships from the past. The game takes place primarily at the hospital and the local high school where the girls drift in and out of the player's daily life. During the hospital stay, our hero befriends a girl who tends to be sickly and naïve to the ways of the world but perhaps the two will help each other recover from their respective ailments.
Routes are different for each heroine. Story feels a bit heavy and sometimes dark involving human death. Memory loss feels too commonplace at times. Overall quality is high.

5. Kimi no Moto e... 君のもとへ・・・ [021115] D-Angel

A new company "Virtual World EXP" provides a revolutionary simulated experience with all five senses. Main character is going to test the system for 21 day. Will he choose virtual avatars of real girls or try to build relations with artificial intelligence girl "Anon"?
SIM with additional systems like feelings. There's the need to input answers "to produce sense of more realistic conversation". Of course it ends up being crap as a result.

6. Shibuya Days@ ~Shibu Digi Tantei.com Series~ 渋谷DAYS@ ~渋デジ探偵.COMシリーズ [021115] Splash

Main character is a detective. One day a girl that he admires applies to his place to search for her missing brother. She tried to investigate the case herself together with detective club friends, but they got attacked themselves as a result. With the appearance of a thief stealing paintings case expands. Where will investigation lead?
Game's too short, too disoriented and too prosaic. There's no energy in writing and even H element is thin while scenes being vicious. It's definitely a wrong work for those seeking detective mystery.

7. Omoide ni Kawaru Kimi ~Memories Off~ 想い出にかわる君 ~メモリーズオフ~ [021128] KID 1 2 3 4 5 6

Shougo is an ordinary if somewhat lazy university student. Instead of studying he prefers to hangout with other regular visitors in a place called the Cubic Cafe. Several years ago his girlfriend Kanata suddenly left him, disappearing without a trace and giving him no message on why she ran off. One day, completely by chance, the two happen to meet each other again in that cafe.
The story takes place in summer, a year after the events of Memories Off 2nd (Memories Off 2nd)
There is an English review.

8. Gunsister ガンシスター [021129] Silver Co., Ltd.

250 years from now. Human race is reduced to 2.5 billion due to fierce confrontation with the fairy race. Many secrets of lost civilizations are lost in the chaos.
Main character is a travelling gunman. One day he gets into bitter rain and regains consciousness at a monastery with his right arm and left foot injured. He starts to live there with a priest and five sisters and gradually gets involved into the battle they lead.
I think I know what to review this month.

9. Harumachi Kagerou 春待蜻蛉 [021129] Noctovision

The protagonist, Asami Teruhiko, has a young sister. His parents are already dead, and he lives alone with his sister, whom he loves more than anything else in this world. He works hard to make her happy.
Unfortunately, she dies of leukemia. The protagonist spends several days at home crying by himself, until he decides that since he cannot live without her, he must join her.
Teruhiko goes on a trip to search for a beautiful place to commit suicide.
He climbs to the precipice of a very beautiful hill. Right before he jumps, a girl screams for help. Her crippled older sister almost falls from the precipice in her wheelchair.
After Teruhiko saves the life of the girl, the younger sister asks him to stay a night in her home, since that small town doesn't have a hotel. The protagonist doesn't have anything to lose, so he agrees.
This is just the start point of the game. The protagonist meets:
Miyuki: the sad and lonely, crippled girl
Shizuku: the cheerful and cute girl who loves anime and manga
Sayoko: the lonely mother of Miyuki and Shizuku
Satoko: the girl who manages a shop and lives with her grandmother
Ai-chan: the energetic and cute loli girl who has a “suspicious” relationship with Kazuo, a policeman
By interacting with all these girls, the protagonist finds a new reason for live, and finally finds his true love.
Quite an orthodox ADV. Scenario is not integral enough, and hardly anything happens here. But it's not my genre to begin with.

10. Kajitsu 夏日 -kajitsu- [021129] Studio Ryokucha

Main character's parents divorce, so he has to move to a rural school. After the initial week he gets disenchanted with the school and his classmates. One day he notices a shadow in the school building. Protagonist decides to investigate it and finds a girl sitting alone in a classroom dyed in the red sunset. She does not notice protagonist and leaves the classroom. The next morning he learns that girl is a local mentally ill weirdo Chihaya who is of school age, but does not attend school. He starts to get interested in this girl.
There are three heroines, and Chihaya route does not really stand out that much. All three heroines are involved deeply in each of the routes, so characters are the strong side here. Great voicing adds up to the feeling. Quite a solid read as a representative of pure love genre overall even with below average production values and excessive emphasis on slice-of-life.

11. Sweet Season すぃ~とし~ずん-SWEET SEASON- [021129] Tarte

Yoshinori Asamiya is a high school freshman who is in the shogi club. One day, he meets a girl while she was walking her dog. She's from a different school, but she's on the shogi club as well...
That girl was Ayumi Jinguuji, and Yoshinori can't help but be intrigued about her. Even if at first it was difficult to be her friend, Ayumi seems to have taken a liking to him.
Love can be fun, but also painful at times.
First comic part is quite fun, but relationships development looks sudden. Protagonist is a complex character, but some his actions just make him weird. Play time is about 6 hours per route. It's funny that a new special route opens up if you manage to answer all of shogi quiz answers correctly.


12. Uso x Mote ~Usonko Motemote-shon~ うそ×モテ ~うそんこモテモテーション~ [021129] Studio Neko Punch

Main character moves to an academy with boys to girls ratio of 1:9. One day he meets a self-proclaimed flower fairy "Momo" who promises to make his dream come true. Without much thinking, he says he wants to be super popular with girls. That wish is granted on the condition that he can only say lies from now on.
Not a masterpiece, but definitely a game with a funny scenario. The setting of the need to always lie is fully exploited to produce lots of gags, including confession scenes. Momo accompanies protagonist and participates in the gags as well.
