VN of the Month November 2014 - Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou.

Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou. is VN of the Month. Clephas had to agree on Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm , but I hate sports even more and sampling anime based on the game only worsened aggravated bias. Micchi likes both and also Kimi no Tonari de Koi Shiteru , Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria and a fandisc.

5. Hen Koi ≒ Kuro Rekishi 変恋≒黒歴史 [141128] Akane Soft
There has always been a great rivalry between the manga research club and the literature club at Oujou Gakuen. No one knows how long this rivalry has lasted, but their quarrels are famous at the school, especially during the culture festival. However, there was a shocking incident this year. The manga research club’s secret journal which is always hidden from view and never leaves the club room somehow ended up in the hands of the literature club! If this became public, then they might have to close their booth at the culture festival, or even worse, the club might be disbanded.
Hiroyuki heard about this incident from his friend Satoshi from the manga research club, but he did not think it concerned him. That was until he learned that it contained the delusional writings (black history) which they had written together in the past. He would do anything to get it back. If the contents became known, then his school life will be ruined!
He was sent to infiltrate the literature club. Even though he didn’t see eye-to-eye with the literature club’s deputy leader Juri due to a previous accident, he was somehow able to join the club. He found it in total disarray since they were finalizing the preparations for the culture festival on a short notice. They probably would have normally been a bit more guarded, but now wasn’t the time to worry about such small things. He helped the members with their preparations to get closer to them, as he investigated the whereabouts of the journal.
If you wondered why this game has no English reviews, it's because of the Hen word in the title, sadly in its worst meaning. With weak text, scenario and individual routes only H emphasis remains.

For the literary club which Ichigo was part of, they must prove that they deserve a club room and funds by selling 100 copies of their latest work.

7. Hotarubi no Shoujo 螢火ノ少女 [141128] Jirai Soft
The solitary island of Kyuubi-jima lies in the Sea of Japan. It was named after the legendary nine-tailed fox after a shard of the sesshouseki (killing stone) had reached the island when it died. However, many people left the island to escape from the inauspicious name, and before long the island had its name changed to Hotarubi-jima (light of the fireflies). However, even with its new beautiful name, an ominous shadow still casts over the island.
Natsuki lost his mother when he was born and moved at a young age to Hotarubi-jima when his father remarried, along with his two new imoutos. But his surroundings changed completely after the accidental death of his father. Taking care of three kids was deemed too much for his sickly mother-in-law Kaede, so Natsuki and his youngest sister Tsugumi were taken in by relatives outside of the island, while his other sister Madoka remained on the island as the successor of the Tsukumo household.
Many years later, Madoka suddenly vanished and there were whispers among the islanders that she was spirited away. No one could find her, so she was considered as dead by an accident. News of Madoka’s death reached Natsuki and Tsugumi on the mainland. However, Kaede prohibited their return to the island and they were unable to attend her funeral. A few years after that, Tsugumi suddenly received a letter from Madoka, simply telling them to come to the island. After discussing it with Natsuki, they decided to return to Hotarubi-jima to find out the truth behind the letter. They soon learned about the sad truth and cruel past of their family clan, as well as the secret of the island.
Nukige, but after Tsuisou no Augment curiosity persists. Production team has changed, so it's best not to have any Tsuisou no Augment allusions. Basically, it's a denpa with a lot of fixed bad endings. There's a lot of unexplained mystery everywhere for a short and fragmented story, but nothing worthile for the tremendous amount of effort and endurance needed to reach the True End.
