VN of the Month September 2004 - Abandoner - The Severed Dreams

Abandoner - The Severed Dreams is the winner this month, but since it has a review I'm picking up more obscure Noel for review.

1. Konohana 4 ~Yami wo Harau Inori~ 此花4 ~闇を祓う祈り~ [040909] Vridge Inc. 1

Meguru Momoi and Miako Tachibana are back in their fourth murder-mystery adventure, along with Shinobu Sakurada. As they were taking a shinkansen (a bullet train) on their way to an excursion trip to Kyoto, they heard a scream only to stumble upon a murder scene.
Finally, the last Konohana. As usual, it's about solving a serial murder case with an option of having love ending under certain conditions.

2. Abandoner - The Severed Dreams [040917] Unknown 1 2

A cross between fantasy, science fantasy, and mystery. 
The protagonist is a former detective who is living in virtual exile in a walled-off city occupied by foreign military forces. It is a lawless city, where just about anything can happen...
There is an English review.

3. Meimeimei! めいめいめい! [040917] LaLa

A relative of yours died, and you inherit his countryside mansion/café, which are run by maids.
A typical moege. Nothing to add, really.

4. Sakura Taisen V Episode 0 ~Kouya no Samurai Musume~ サクラ大戦V EPISODE0 ~荒野のサムライ娘~ [040922] Sega

Sakura Taisen V: Episode 0 (STV-0) is a prelude to the full sequel, "Sakura Taisen V: Farewell My Love" (Episode 1). In STV-0, you take the role of Texan cowgirl Gemini Sunrise as she rides her horse Rally across the American mainland from San Francisco to Washington DC. Along the way, Gemini defeats a legion of half-demon, half-robot "Japhkiel" from the evil sorcerer Patrick Hamilton, while protecting the targeted innocent girl Fuanita Cushing. Hamilton previously appeared as a henchman of the president of the Douglas Stewart company in the anime "Sakura Taisen: The Movie"
New characters, U.S. territory and action battle scenes mark the reload of the series.

5. Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku 碇シンジ育成計画 [040924] Gainax 1 2 3 4 5

The player assumes control of Shinji Ikari, the protagonist and main character of the normal Neon Genesis Evangelion series, in the expanded alternate universe that was glimpsed upon for a few moments in the TV episode 26. Basically, the player decides Shinji's fate in how he lives his life.
Play proceeds in three major ways: The weekly schedule, battle, and dialogue choices. The player chooses Shinji's schedule for each week,what Shinji does influences his statistics. Battle controls are menu-driven and the outcome is determined partly by statistics and partly by luck. At various points Shinji will be asked to make choices during dialogue which can have far-reaching influence on the story.
Game is localized and has English reviews

6. Noel [040924] FlyingShine

Emanon, an organization run by special military forces. The protagonist is their top soldier, nicknamed the God of Death, her name is Noel. She is given a new mission, protecting a girl attending a prestigious academy for women while remaining undercover. To accomplish this, she infiltrates the school posing as a new student. 
The everyday part is presented as a comedy, and the battle is feminine and cool looking. Since it's the only plotge of the month without a review, I'm reviewing it myself.

7. North Wind [040924] DreamSoft

The story takes place in a small town surrounded by the mountains where, every winter, a "Love Letter Festival" takes place. According to the legend, if you write a love letter to the one you love, and post it at the local shrine on the 26th of December, you will get to meet that person.
The protagonist, Makoto Akizuki, was born in that town and has been living in Tokyo for the last 3 years. He pays a yearly visit to his relatives, this time accompanied with his a junior at school, Hakana Fuyutsuta.
Game is virtually a single road story divided into three structural parts. Only main heroine matters in this game as side heroines get their stories scrapped and even H events omitted. Dream Soft is a spawn of F&C, and it steps on the same rakes. The scenario is really weak overall.

8. Princess Brave! ~Jantaku no Kishi~ プリンセスブレイブ! ~雀卓の騎士~ [040924] 130cm

One Year after the events of Princess Bride, graduation day closes on. Still none of the girls are chosen to be a princess and they are desparete. 
One night suddenly black mists engulf the house amids a loud laughter and everyone finds themseves in a magical world. Strange people appear clad in black and our hero gets turned into a dog. Whats is going on? What do you mean the only way to set things back to normal is to win this mahjong game?
A strange and magical adventure begins...
Moege sequel, now with such fun thing as mahjong!

9. Shinju no Yakata 神樹の館 [040924] Meteor 1 2

A successful university student on seasonal break, Kugetsu Akinari decided to take time off studying, by planning a trip through the countryside to relieve educational stress. With his best friend tagging along, he looked forward to having fun and passing time without worry, readying himself for the next challenging semester with a relaxed mind. However destiny has other designs for Kugetsu, and after taking refuge from a terrible storm within a frightening manor, the future five beautiful women are placed in his hands. Yet the more aware and sympathetic he grows to their plights, the greater his own troubles and less certain future become.
There are English reviews.

10. Tender Breeze [040924] O-DiN

Main character reunites with his former lover Kotomi after a gap of four years. But she is now his brothers's fiance! In order to forget about Kotomi, protagonist tries to pursue romantic relations either with his childhood friend or part-time job colleague. Who will be at his side by the end of the summer?
Heroines are well composed, but with zero scenario and 70% HCG rate game has a distinctive turn towards moege.

11. Tomodachi Ijou Koibito Miman 友達以上恋人未満 [040924] Studio Mebius

Shohei took a trip to Ryuujin-mura to heal his broken heart. He visited a historic shrine and freed a spirit who was sealed in a pot. She was Kukuri, a spirit who brought love to lonely people. The shrine’s miko Meiko makes him take responsibility for releasing Kukuri and the town is locked down, so he couldn’t return home. Will he be able to settle Kukuri’s disturbance and be freed from Meiko and return home?
I can't take this game seriously after it brought so many characters from its previous game SNOW (which was kinda meh). The stupid plot and parasitism over prequel commercial success make prevent me from even trying to evaluate this game.

12. Love Songs♪ADV: Futaba Riho 14-sai ~Natsu~ LoveSongs♪アドベンチャー 双葉理保14歳〜夏〜 [040930] HuneX

Riho has been active in the entertainment industry since she was only 4 years old, but after being involved in an unfortunate kidnapping incident, she retired from the entertainment world and went to live in a small rural town in the island of Kyushu. The player takes a role of a rookie manager working at a talent scouting agency, looking for the next new talent. While there are many girls you will interact with, the focus of the story will be Riho once you get to meet her. However, persuading her to return to the entertainment scene might prove difficult due to her traumatic experience she has undergone as a child.
Beating around the bush and sober plot make this game really boring. None of heroines is really charming enough.

13. W Wish [040930] Princess Soft

Junna Tōno has a twin sister named Senna. He is an ordinary student at Sakurahama Private High School. However, in the past, a traffic accident deprived him of his parents and his memory. Junna survived the accident and since then, he lived only with his sister, though he's been looked after by his relatives.
His present life with Senna at the same high school is so pleasant that he can forget his severe past. However, Junna begins to recall the memories he lost in the accident. He enjoys the happy and pleasant days, but he is tossed by his past, his present, and his future. What is the truth hidden in his memory?
Game follows anime version for the most part, apart from additional endings. I'd advise to watch anime first and see if there's a will to see side stories.

You could do a review of Abandoner too. The existing English one is by Clephas, a notorious review spammer who professed not knowing Japanese and using machine translation. Not someone I'd trust about Japanese games.

I really hope Abandoner wins in the extra review of the year poll. It will have decent rivals like 3Days, though. As the worst case scenario there's also a way to just read Japanese reviews of it, without videos, though http://egono.com/eroge2.php?name=3856
