VN of the Month February 2010 - Tsubasa o Kudasai

Kashimashi Communication and Tsubasa o Kudasai are masterpieces with the latter having priority due to original concept. Micchi is fascinated by cuteness of Magicarat☆Radiant and throws in a bunch of nukige since there's not so much to discuss this month.

1. Misshitsu no Sacrifice 密室のサクリファイス [100214] Intense 1  
Deep underground lies an immense living facility: Foundation.
When was it built, and why? Who, or what, brought its residents there? The truth has faded with the years, and its history has sunk into the ocean of time. No one within knows of the surface. To the people of Foundation, the underground facility is their entire world.
Then, calamity strikes, changing the fate of five young girls.
Their world is suddenly deserted. Quakes assail the underground halls, walls and ceilings collapse, and food and water begins to run out. Five girls, the final survivors, must find a way to pull through these dire conditions.
Foundation is on the verge of collapse, and the girls face their longest and final trial...

2. Pure Love! ぴゅあらっ! [100219] Shakunage
His parents conveniently having went on a world tour, Reiichi is left alone with his childhood friend Miharu. A sudden confession. A kiss without explanation. Then, a short girl barges in and declares that she’s come to have his kids as promised.
Orthodox boring moege, but can be sincere and decent if you don't expect much.

3. Sengoku Hime 2 ~Senran no Yo, Gunyuu Arashi no Gotoku~ 戦極姫2~戦乱の世、群雄嵐の如く~ [100219]  Unicorn-A
This is the sequel to Sengoku Hime -Senran no Yo ni Honoo Tatsu-. The game features brand-new scenarios, new heroines and new game systems. There are more than 100 characters, including 16 new ones.
TBS

4. Hinomaru ひのまるっ [100225] Wheel 1 
Who said that first?
Hino, the captain of the student council, always writes a big circle on the paper when she approves. Hino writes Maru (circle). That's why it is called "Hinomaru" order!
Shuuhei, the main character, has started working as a director of the student council just recently...

5. Koori no Haka Ichiyanagi Nagomu, Sandome no Junan 氷の墓標 一柳和、3度目の受難 [100225] FOG

Arnold, the count of Ruroi invites the duo to the house of Cedrei to investigate the strange incidents in the secluded island.

Are the events caused by the baron’s three successors, or are there real supernatural forces lurking around?
PSP detective work

6. No Fate! ~Only the Power of Will~ のーふぇいと!~only the power of will~ [100225]  Alchemist 1 
I was just an average high school boy... Just boring, mediocre and normal... But one day, a girl falls down from the sky.
According to her, she came from the world beyond the inner space... My extraordinary life is about to begin with the arrival of an extraordinary girl...
Linear simple PSP story about alien girl suddenly starting to live together with protagonist.

7. Amai Toki ~Sweet Time~ 甘い刻 ~SWEET TIME~ [100226] P-Factory
In his dreams, Ryou sees a beautiful girl dressed in traditional clothes crying in an old fashioned courtyard and there is nothing he could do. Also, the girl looks very similar to the new apprentice teacher Megumi. Is this a scene from his past life? Will they be able to fulfill her feelings from the past?
Past life has no meaning at all here. Scenario is terribly short, so it's outrageous that game was sold for full price by just pulling four heroines inside.

8. Kashimashi Communication かしましコミュニケーション [100226] AXL
Joutarou has average grades and isn’t bad at nor excels at athletics: basically an ordinary student. But, he’s famous in the school since he works for the ‘cross-cultural committee’. This isn’t your normal club; the members are interested in UFO and aliens, ghosts and spirits. He wishes for someone normal and one day he gets his wish in the form of a lost girl from another country. What he doesn’t know is that she’s actually a princess.
Wow, no reviews? The more space for me. Writer did Kimikoe and Princess Frontier previously, and there are no butlers and ojousama here, so it's an inevitable masterpiece for me. It's our familiar AXL, but concept is as if prepared for specific writer, basically princess + friends circle communication, subsidiary themes from previous games. Otaku club would be better, but mystics club gives more room for exotic events. Newcomers would be impressed, but long-standing fans not so much. At least this lesson will get learned with Dolphin Divers.

9. Koi-Labo. こいらぼ [100226] Diva
An university student majoring in arts, Ryou heads to Kaikyouku to become a teacher-in-training. While traveling by boat to the town, he could hear an unpleasant sound. A girl nearby offers him a pair of headphones and tells him that he can’t live on the island without them. Later he finds out that her name is Karen and she is the class rep in his assigned class.
World view is unusual, but outside this fact it's an ordinary eroge. Siscon route is probably the best, but most heroines are disappointing with quality falling into doujin category at times.

10. Koitou Ranma ~Watashi ga, Anata o, Mamoru Kara!!!~ 恋刀乱麻~わたしが、アナタを、守るからっ!!!~ [100226] Abel Software
The Sumeragi Gakuen is under attack from 5 other schools who are after its enormous wealth. The school’s battle representative Biryuu is on the verge of falling when our hero Miyabi appears and somehow helps her recover. She tells him that he has the ‘sun element’. The goal is to unite the schools and end all the battling.
I gave Abel Software a lot of chances, but alas. This time focus is on strip battles as there are very few battle CG without boobs flash and zero without torn clothes. Basically, chosen girl defeats other school's opponents in each route with a bit of extra in True route. Battles include gameplay elements.



11. Magicarat☆Radiant まじからっと☆れいでぃあんと [100226] Parasol  1 
Hiroaki is a second year student at Arihara Gakuen and lives a normal life. He meets two girls one summer day, one with golden hair and the other with silver hair. They tell him that they’re actually magicians and his normal life now descends into chaos.
There is an English review.

12. Ohime-sama wa, Panthera Leo お姫様は、ぱんてられお [100226] Hecate
Mamoru is a university undergrad who, being a hikikomori, doesn’t go to school unless absolutely necessary. One day in May, he was lectured by a prof due to his lousy attendance. He went to the roof for a breath of fresh air and while he was sitting on the bench and looking at the sky… a hole opened up in the sky! Out comes a lion princess, followed soon after by her brother and sister.
Just a half-best princess cohabitation story which is the same for all three heroines. I see very narrow focus auditory here.

13. Tsubasa o Kudasai 翼をください [100226] skysphere 1 2  
Seitenshou Academy is famous in Shizoaki since there is a legend that angels were created there. Mitsuto is a student there who doesn’t like the monotony of everyday life: waking up at the same time, going to school and coming back home after classes. He cleans the old and unused three-story Building B by himself. One day as he was sweeping the floors, he ended up on the seemingly nonexistent 4th floor and finds a girl reading a book alone. Her name is Hinako, and soon after he can start seeing things and people that normal people cannot see. The secret of the angels is starting to become unraveled.
There are English reviews.

14. Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Doujinshi Hajimemashita♥ 乃木坂春香の秘密 同人誌はじめました♥ [100227] Vridge Inc.
In this all new story you take the role of Yuuto, Haruka's most trusted confidante and the one who knows of the school 'unattainable beauty' Haruka's secret passion for anime and otaku pastimes. In the story of the game, Haruka has decided to make her own doujinshi (amateur fan comic). The only problem is that she's bad at drawing, but is so proud of her own work that nobody has the heart to tell her how it really is... The four themes you'll enjoy on this doujin creation adventure are "Maid Costumes", from Haruka's cosplay adventures, "Doujinshi", as she draws her own, "Party", as you gather with Haruka and your friends to celebrate, and "Event", the Comic Market-style doujin convention where Haruka finally is able to sell her books.
Anime spin-off

BLOCKED

1. Fukubiki! Triangle ふくびき!トライアングル [100226] Blue Gale
There is a shopping arcade, where a lot of stores are closed. The stores decide to hold a lottery event to gather customers. The first prize is... "You can spend two weeks with pretty sisters of president of the shopping arcade."
A sure nukige, but noticed it late, so leaving it for opening's sake.


2. NekoNeko Fan Disc 3 ねこねこファンディスク3 [100226] NekoNeko Soft
Third fandisc for NekoNeko's games.
Fandisc

3. Saimin Seikatsu ~Kousoku Dakara Shikatanai!?~ 催眠生活~校則だから仕方ない!?~ [100226] C: drive.
Hayato moves back to the town he used to live in after nine years away. Upon arriving, he meets his childhood friend, Tatsumi Makino. When he arrives to his school, he finds that she has painted the school building with a message welcoming him back. It seems that over the past years she has become known for causing trouble like this, and is called Tatsumaki (Tornado) because of it.
Hayato agrees to try to get Makino to stop causing trouble, and fortunately he has a plan--he will hypnotise her! He pulls her into the broadcasting room and tries it, but it seems not to work. However, the broadcasting equipment was accidentally turned on at the time, and everyone else in the school was hypnotized...
Game in the nukige league, but - again - I can leave it be if there is an opening.
