VN of the Month July 2003 - Komorebi ni Yureru Tamashii no Koe

There aren't masterpieces this month. And I'm so desperate that I'm choosing lolige Komorebi ni Yureru Tamashii no Koe as VN of the Month. I'll review a cool angel game Kono Sora ga Tsuieru Toki ni

1. 6 Gatsu no Tenshi 6月の天使 [030704] LaLa
Main character who is approaching graduation goes on a journey of self-search. He meets a unique girl who has a secret about her. Right emotions will help her to convey her heart.
Game features emotions in addition to speech variants. Such system was used twice already in visual games, and each time with a pretty poor result. As expected, we get abused by unfriendly systems and lazy bad tempo. We get to live in this village for a year (wait, what about graduation?), and very few events happen over this time.

2. Monograph ~Tooi Yakusoku~ モノグラフ~遠い約束~ [030704] Discovery
Half-humans live in this world alongside humans. Main character has a lineage of both half-humans and famous exorcists. His older brother initially inherits family business, so protagonist moves to his relatives place to start his happy and slightly strange school life.
Game is very much alike most pure love games starting with ToHeart. We go to school and choose girl icons on the school map. Content is normal, without any surprises or emotion moments. All this half-human stuff is just to bring nekomimi girls in.

3. Sayonara Mayumi-chan ~Fujinomori Byouin Monogatari~ さよならまゆみちゃん~藤ノ森病院物語~ [030704] Globe
Main character is a just assigned doctor at a countryside small hospital. In this hospital wheelchair girl Mayumi is being treated for four years from the heart disease of unknown nature. Girl is always in cheerful mood despite her state, so there's the urge to do something for her...
Just great - we get to know from the title that Mayumi is going to die anyway, so let's just squeeze some tears. Just guess what's called by treatment in this game - sex. H element is above average rate here. There are several heroines, but Mayumi makes the main one. In the happy ending of the True route she even does not die. Just guess thanks to what - right again, miracle that never gets explained.

4. Komorebi ni Yureru Tamashii no Koe こもれびに揺れる魂のこえ [030711] Unison Shift 1 2
Father Asamiya has devoted his life to serving the less fortunate, following the merciful tenants of the Catholic faith to bring compassion and kindness to those who need it most. Yet in spite of his deep dedication and strong convictions, there remains an empty feeling that the Lord has something else in store for him: another role that he should be serving. Thus when a peculiar letter is delivered to him, christening the young pastor as custodian of a small orphanage, Asamiya seizes upon the chance. For who needs hope and guidance more, than children who have little hope and guidance at all?
There is an English review.

5. Ama no Miko Hime 天巫女姫 [030718] Grooming
Main character loses parents in childhood and lives with to his grandfather. After grandfather death he decides to move back to home town where aunt and three shrine maidens wait for his return.
Game is actually a nakige with first half being quite humorous. Text is relatively good and each route is quite long - about seven hours. H events are darker than usual, but not enough to block game as a nukige.

6. Nanaha no Ken Kunoichi In no Shou 七巴の剣 くのいち 淫の章 [030718] FlyingShine
Main character needs to perform a ritual to have sex with a woman in sacred mountains. This ritual is held each 100 years, and the time for it approaches. He goes in the trip with a small company of people, but they get attacked and obstructed on their way by female kunoichi band. What awaits him?
I won't block this game, but it should be pretty obvious by this point that it's another FlyingShine nukige. Story is one road with wrong choice (always 2 choices given) leads to an instant game over. System same old, battles not fun. Story is very boring more suiting some RPG than a visual novel. H events are dense, as usual. Game is just a waste for an artist to work on.

7. The Ren'ai Horror Adventure Ryouryuu Shoujo THE 恋愛ホラーアドベンチャー 漂流少女 [030724] Siesta
You've been trapped in the school basement with 5 girls. While picking a partner from among them, you'll also have the chance to strengthen your relationship, even in such scary circumstances.
Quite a generic escape adventure with items and very little variation of actions. There are also battles that need to be prepared for each time. Finale is pretty light.

8. True Love Story Summer Days, and yet... [030724] Game Club
Morisaki Yuuta moved into the city after his mother's death with his older sister; Ruri and attended the same highschool. In the school corridor, he bumped into a student in the name of Kusunose Hina who participates in the Tennis Club. From that moment onward, Yuuta remembered his childhood promise he made to the girl whom he used to play with when his mother was still alive.
Fourth bullet in this dating SIM series. Stats, schedule and the whole complex system for conversation - not my stuff.

9. Apocalypse ~Deus Ex Machina~ [030725] Tactics 1
A basement colony "Agnoshia". People living there are controlled by the machine "Arcon". Rishe's father is a scientist and his will says there is something sleeping in "Taltaros". She heads for it and finds Ash, being cold slept, and resuscitates him. "Arcon" attacks Ash but he beats it easily.... From its debris, an image appears. It says her name is Sakura and tells them to come to the top floor of "Agnoshia". Ash and Rishe decide to go there....

10. AQUAS [030725] Mercurius 1 2
Long, long ago, the Human race disappeared entirely from existence, for obscure and forgotten reasons. Only a few managed to survive, fleeing into the oceans and beginning a new life amid the waves.
Over the passing of aeons, their descendants fully adjusted themselves to their marine habitat, evolving into a slightly different (but totally Human-like) new race, the Mermen.
Only recently the Merman race has begun the re-colonization of the coastlands, but although the game story takes place in a typical Merman town on a little island, one of the locals, Eiji (the young protagonist), is not Merman at all but a true member of the supposedly extinct Human race...
There is an English review.

11. Fall in Love ふぉ~りんLOVE [030725] Hayashigumi
It is the season of summer.
The protagonist has failed to clear his college entrance exams for the 2nd time. His parents forced him to enroll at a live-in prepatory school in countryside. Run by his elder female cousin, the protagonist visited the school "Shooting Star Garden".
However, it was a girls-only dormitory.
A brave girl who aims to get into university while fighting a disease,
A girl who was hurt from failing to appear for her exams, 
An old fashioned girl who swings a sword,
A sexy elder cousin and a friendly younger cousin.
What will become of his life, living with these various heroines?
Just a moege full of erotic encounters. 

12. Hazama no Tsuki 狭間の月 [030725] Dark Side 1
Atop a forbidding hill surrounded by mysterious forests and decrepit paths lies a lonely residence. It is to this very estate that a young man has been summoned by its beautiful owner, asking him to fulfill an altruistic desire. Yet the circumstances of his visit are far from normal, and the three occupants who he encounters are more than what they seem. Evil broods strongly where he is traveling, and its hunger will only grow with his presence, stealing everything he treasures from the past, and forever corrupting his future.
There is an English review.

13. Kono Sora ga Tsuieru Toki ni この空がついえる瞬間に [030725] Digital Monkey
Main character lives happily with his lover and friends around him. But one day the world comes to an end. Protagonist's brother is looking for a leader in this crumbling post-apocalypse world and he finds the leader in protagonist's lover Sena who undergoes transformation suitable to call her God's child... The two people keep on living happily. However, the fate is not smiling at them.
A dark story primarily about death. One heroine playthrough is about 4 hours, but common route takes the bulk of it. Story starts pretty solid, but the end of the world is depicted vaguely, as a gimmick. The development feels rushed, and the ending leaves reader puzzled.

14. Mahoromatic ☆ Adventure まほろまてぃっく☆あどべんちゃー [030725] Gainax
Vesper is a secret agency fighting an army of alien invaders by using super-powerful battle androids. Mahoro is Vesper's most powerful battle android and has won many battles, but she has little operating time left and soon will cease to function. However, if she lays down her arms and conserves her remaining power, the time she has left can be prolonged to just over a year. Mahoro is given an opportunity to live the remaining time she has as a normal human. She chooses to live as a maid for Suguru, a phenomenally messy middle school student who lives by himself after his family passed away.
Basically original synopsis is taken in its entirety from the original. The focus is on everyday scenes and some original events. Without knowing the original game is really bad. So it's just another Gainax fan-oriented stuff.

15. Maple Colors [030725] Apricot 1
Saku Yoshijirou has just transferred to Kouka Academy, which is famous for its theatrical activities. On his first day at school, he started a fight with Aoi Mirai. To make the matter worse, the fight was seen by Aizen Yukihito, the head of the Drama Club. All of Yoshijirou's classmates are problem students, and he thought he could use the fight to rid himself of them. Then, Yoshijirou is assigned to direct his class in a drama competition against the Drama Club. If they lose the competition, they will be suspended. However, because they are problem students, he has difficulties directing them.
Game has excellent production values and funny characters. It boasts a lot of crunchy and difficult mini-games to enjoy. But there is absolutely nothing special about the scenario here. Just raise favorability in encounters and mini-games. If you treasure scenario like I do, game has nothing to offer. So it's good if characters along are enough for you.

16. Negai no Mahou. ねがいの魔法。 [030725] Tarte
Main character used to make up rules in his childhood and awaited rewards from the fate for remaining true to those small rules. In the corner of his heart he still believes in those small miracles. Between the cute transfer student and the childhood friend seeking for romance, it's time for magic of wishes.
Game's more about the process. There is Runner system that helps to prioritize targets and determine progress and there's also Feelings system attached. After getting through all this complexity H events happen quite suddenly, without setting the right mood. Game's too short and overall disappointing.

17. Onee-chan no Cube お姉ちゃんの3乗(きゅーぶ) [030725] Marron
One day, the mysterious distortion space-time continuum divides man character's older sister into three girls with different personalities who all retain part of older sister. Fairy comes from a different world to investigate this distortion, and thus this strange co-habitation with four girls begins.
Game is a bakage with lots of gags. But second half with serious development does not stand up even remotely to the powerful comedy start in the first part. Still no voicing, and scenario-wise Cosmos no Sora ni was better.

18. For Symphony ~With All One's Heart~ [030731] Takuyo 1
Playing as a high school student, you experience your senior year of high school with your fellow students. This includes a trip to the beach during the summer and lots of conversation on the whole. Unlike most love simulations, this one gives you a choice over the sex of the main character. You can play the game as either a girl or a boy.
Generic dating SIMs for both boys and girls at the same time never ended good. This is no exception.

19. Sakura ~Setsugekka~ SAKURA~雪月華~ [030731] Princess Soft
Only four students, plus teacher remain in the school dormitory during spring break for their own reasons.
At one such day mysterious transfer student Asuka appears in the dormitory and gives main character a book without author's name. She wants to set a play after this book. Without anyone expecting, this play will lead actors to a mysterious destiny. 
Reincarnation stuff is in the center of attention here. So basically whoever you choose is your ancient legendary bride, of course, while you are Shogun relative. A lot of absurdity rises from this relation. Routes are paired and are generally of modest volume, so cost/performance is lacking.


1. Inda Super 淫打SUPER [030702] Vega
Game gets more naughty and technically sophisticated! Whenever you hit a wrong key, system tells you which direction is correct key.

2. Mechiku - Ikenie SC 女畜・聖贄(めちく・いけにえ)SC [030703] Dennou Club
