VN of the Month October 2011 - Izuna Zanshinken

Izuna Zanshinken is VN of October. But I also see merit in Midori no Umi . Zen and Micchi promote these two games as well while also picking Renai 0 Kilometer and some fandisc.

1. AKB1/48: Idol to Guam de Koishitara... AKB1/48 アイドルとグアムで恋したら・・・ [111006] Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.
Dating is something the AKB girls are not allowed to do. But for you, they are going to make an exception. This summer, the girls invite you to the tropical paradise Guam, all you need to do when you get there is to spend time with them and choose your one dream girl from 48.
The game boasts the largest set of heroines in a dating game. To gain your attention and affections, the girls are going to put on their bikinis and their summer dresses. The game becomes sexier, and the girls are more daring. Choosing one girl poses no difficulty, but do you have the heart to reject the rest 47 girls?
Anything with AKB in title is crap by default

2. Tsugi no Giseisha o Oshirase Shimasu 次の犠牲者をオシラセシマス [111006] BOOST ON 1
When a bizarre chain mail about a serial killer becomes popular on the Internet, no one suspects that the murders are actually happening. This is the story of the people caught in this bizarre game.
Serial murder escape PSP game is of zero interest to me.

3. Nekoguri. ~Nekura to Koi no Grimoire~ ネこグリ。~ネクラと恋のグリモワァル~ [111021] Frantic LABO. 1
Kyousuke accidentally embarrassed the new transfer student Misa. Unfortunately for him, she is fond of black magic and cursed him in revenge by locking him in the school and forcing him to search for a magic book in the underground bookcase. For some reason, she ended up cursing herself as well and also trapped his osananajimi Sayu, the timid Nono, and the rich ojousama Reika in the school. But the school grounds become a strange amusement park at night. Will they be able to find the magic book and dispel the curse?
Game is relaxing and of B class. That's all you need to know about this one.

4. R-15 Portable R-15 ぽーたぶる [111027] Kadokawa Games
R-15 is about a boy, Taketo Akutagawa, who attends a school for geniuses: Inspiration Academy Private High School. Taketo is a genius novelist and writes erotica. Despite negative perceptions many people have of him, he aims to be at the top of his class and be recognized as the world's greatest writer.
This game mixes visual novel segments with interactive minigames where the player touches the girls.
Such games are very important as rock bottom for assessment in comparison.

5. Rou-Kyuu-Bu! ロウきゅーぶ! [111027] Vridge Inc.
Based on a light novel by Aoyama Sagu.
High school student Hasegawa Subaru decides to stop associating himself with basketball, despite his love for the sport, when his school's team captain was suspected being a pedophill and the club is disbanded for a year. His aunt, Takamura Mihoshi, then assigns him to be an elementary school girl's basketball team coach. Initially, he accepts to train the girls just for three days, but after learning of their circumstances, he decided to keep coaching them.
Anime spin-off

6. Tanteibu: The Detective Club -Haibu to Kaiga to Bakudan to- たんていぶ THE DETECTIVE CLUB -廃部と絵画と爆弾と- [111027] BOOST ON 1
Third in the four volume romantic detective story. The detective team consists of Maya, Tora and Natsu, three teenage girls and Sodom, a little robot with a useful set of skills. Each game in the series focuses on three different cases you have to solve.
Detective game

7. Izuna Zanshinken イヅナ斬審剣 [111028] Akatsuki Works Black 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Koutarou arrives in Yuunagi City, in order to enter the service of the Kuzuryuu yakuza family. A slender young man with an apparently innocent manner, he reveals the other side of his nature during a rather abrupt test from his new 'owner', his cold eyes promising death. He is there to replace his father as Izuna for Yuunagi City, claiming the lives of true villains at the orders of his new master.
There are English reviews.

8. Master×Re:master [111028] Silver Bullet Automatic 1
Kyuu and Nanami are childhood friends and they’re both members of the occult club in school, although Nanami is more interested in it than Kyuu. On day, the club’s chairman Saeko tells them that there’s a really good second-hand shop which might have some occult items in it. The visit the shop and Nanami ends up buying a book called “Grimorium Verum” which apparently allows the reader to summon Satan. On the night of the full moon, Nanami tries to perform the ceremony to call the devil and she actually manages it. The figure that appears calls itself Mephistopheles and says that in exchange for Nanami’s soul, he will give her great power. Kyuu tries to protect Nanami and obstructs the ceremony, however, he is thrown onto the ground and Mephistopheles announces that his contract is complete and that both Nanami and Kyuu are now “contractors” but they have to fight together.
Battle scenes and bloodiness fascinate, but enemies are poorly done and development is similar for all individual routes. For this reason there's no meaning in playing more than one main heroine Nanami route. Scenario gaps and low production values prevent this game from being something bigger.

9. Midori no Umi 翠の海 [111028] Cabbit 1 2 3 4 5 6

A childhood friend who lives with two red-smeared eeirie dolls, convinced they are her parents.
A sickly little sister who manipulates persons by just smiling.
The protagonist meets these girls who lack something, and gets involved in strange events.
This slowly gnaws at his heart, like tracing with a fingertip the reminiscences of a distant day.
A sad, and somewhat nostalgic, story about memories.
Doujin, but from rather famous series and with an English review


1. Koiiro Soramoyou: After Happiness and Extra Hearts 恋色空模様 After Happiness and Extra Hearts [111028] Studio Ryokucha 1 2 3 
This is the fandisk to Studio Ryokucha’s 2010 title Koiiro Sora Moyou, with after stories for each of the 5 heroines, as well as new stories for the 4 subheroines (Yuuki, Aiko, Kiyomi and Machiko). Returning to peaceful (?) days, Seigo helps the new student council out with the culture festival preparations. Of course, there’s also now more time for sweet love.

2. Steins;Gate: Hen'i Kuukan no Octet STEINS;GATE 変移空間のオクテット [111028] MAGES. GAME 1 
A non-canon extension of the True End of the original game. Unlike the modern visual novel format of the original game, this retro game perfectly mimics the style of graphical text adventure games from the 8-bit PC era (e.g. PC-88), with the player typing short commands to interact with and explore the game world. It features all backgrounds and characters drawn in a low-color pixelated style with emulated scanlines, chiptune music played through an emulated FM chip, and no voice acting. The premise of the game features Okabe receiving a D-Mail from himself in 2025 that states that he must save the future by reclaiming an IBN 5100 from a person under of the alias "Knight-hart".

3. World Wide Love! -Sekai Seifuku Kanojo Fandisc- World Wide Love! 世界征服彼女ファンディスク [111028] Navel 1
This is the fandisc to the Navels’ 2010 title Sekai Seifuku Kanojo. Contains after stories for all 5 original heroines and will include a route for Yoshiko who was a sub-character in the original game.
