VN of the Month May 2009 - Trample on Schatten!! ~Kagefumi no Uta~

Trample on "Schatten!!" ~Kagefumi no Uta~ is the only masterpiece this month. And I'll actually review its untranslated and uncensored version. Micchi mostly observes delayed and gameplay visual novels while being expectedly fascinated by Tenshin Ranman and Tayutama fandisc.

1. Boku no Oukoku ぼくの王国 [090501] Finish!
Kane is a shepherd. One day, he meets Elith, the spirit of the earth. Kane follows Elith's prediction and saves Princess Sharlot, who has been kept hostage by bandits. His brave action is highly appreciated and he becomes the leader of Norland...
MeiKing anime remade as game

2. Horizon no Ue ~Yogen no Sho~ ホリゾーンの上~預言の書~ [090501] Hecate
This happened a long, long time ago. There was a world covered in thick dark clouds. But people from far-away lands came.
They were treated like gods, and rid the world of the dark clouds. The ground overflowed with light, and new life sprouted.
Trees. Animals. Fish. Birds.
The gods had changed it all.
But there were people who instead embraced the darkness.
They were sent down, to the centre of the world, to a place called "Est".
The rest united for a place called "Kaerum".
Over time, the two words grew apart and a name was given to the boundary line...
Short boring yuri story with same development for all heroines and zero enthusiasm even in fighting scenes.

3. Rakugaki Overheart らくがきオーバーハート [090501] Chien 1 
The main character is back to his hometown for the first time in several years. It seems the town hasn't changed at all. His life is boring just like before...? No, it's wrong.
He finds a lot of graffiti at school, on the desk, at the corner of the classroom and so on. He soon joins the Graffiti Research Club, which does research or investigate the graffiti found at school. Through various activities, he becomes friends with a lot of students and gradually falls in love with a girl...
There is an English review.

4. Alter Ego [090529] Kiss 1

One day, he gets involved in a trouble. As he beats demons using his new power, he is saved by someone unknown. He finally gets to know the fact that the root of every evil is his father and he makes up his mind to take action to free himself and his older sister from the Hiiragi family...
SRPG with an English review.

5. Cruise☆Cruise ~Shoujo no 10nen to Chiisana Yakusoku~くる~ず☆クルーズ~少女の10年とちいさな約束~ [090529] Guten Tag
A young girl fell in love with a young boy and made a promise with him. But as the years passed, he soon forgot about their promise. On his graduation day, Kaoru receives a ticket to a mystery tour aboard the luxury cruise ship Trident, along with his childhood friends Chihiro and Akane. He thought it was suspicious, but he decided to go anyway. When he boards the ship, he meets his classmate Kiriko and notices that he knows most people there.
It's not exactly a kusoge, but an extremely plain cruise voyage graduation story. First half is about introductions, second half about getting to know heroines, remembering and fulfilling promises made long ago.

6. Don-chan ga Kyuu どんちゃんがきゅ~ [090529] light
Noriko is not immune to perverted things. She soon feels dizzy. She's recently got a boyfriend, Toshio, a talented doll modeler. He is gentle and kind. Yes, they are a good couple. Toshio worked at an amusement park nearby, so Noriko often visited there to give him a lunch box. In return, he gave two free tickets for the amusement park to her. "You can come with your boyfriend." "Well, I need only one..." Like this, they started dating...
Second bullet in light low price series about side-heroine of previous work. There's very little value without playing the prequel.

7. Hana to Otome ni Shukufuku o 花と乙女に祝福を [090529] ensemble 1
The protagonist Tsukioka Akira is a normal guy living his usual life, except for one thing. His twin sister is sickly and is in the hospital and can’t go to school. Problem is that she’s been sick for too long and she may have to repeat the year, or worse drop out of school.
So their parents being the most clever people in the world, decided to send him, the splitting image of his sister, over to the all-girls prestigious school to go undercover as his sister, and live her life for a while so that when she comes back, she can take his place without dropping out of school or repeating. Of course it’s a stupid idea and he resisted, but him, being someone who is easily swept away, gave in.
So thereon starts his incredible life in an all girls school.
There is an English review.

8. Stellula Eques Codex ~Tasogare no Himekishi~ ステルラ エクエス コーデックス~黄昏の姫騎士~ [090529] C: drive.

Izayoi and other soldiers know about their conspiracy and try to stop it.
What exactly is Akira's power?! What is Stellula Eques' role?! What will happen to them in the end!?
Another sequel. This time it does not try to be serious and throws various parodies at the reader. There's NTR, cosplay, tentacles, even time loop. Basically, we get defeated and return back through time. Branching happens early and leads to three heroines. Basically, it's a weirdly enjoyable work with poor scenario and abrupt ending.
