[VN Review] Flowers -Le Volume sur Printemps-

2015-12-19-220503Flowers -Le Volume sur Printemps-

Flowers -Le Volume sur Printemps- is my first Innocent Grey game, played on the Playstation Vita. The original PC version was released in spring of 2014, with the Vita port released a few months afterward. The ladies, shoujo-ai setting, and art is what lured me into this game.

Flowers begins in spring with Suoh Shirahane, our protagonist, entering Saint Angraecum, an all-girl school that’s both religious and prestigious. The school has an Amité system where she will form bonds and friendship with other members in the school.Read More »

[VN Review] Kagerou

20120805000810891

蜉蝣
Kagerou/Kagero

Instead of a Western-style VN, how about a historical Japanese one?

Kagerou is a Meiji era doujin visual novel developed by kamomile. The trial version was released in Comiket 82 of 2012 and the complete edition was released in Comiket 86 of 2014. So why did I pick up this obscure looking doujin VN? Novectacle promoted Kagerou several years ago and it also won a doujin game award in 2014. I was hesitant on playing Kagerou, but one day I noticed the game on the shelf in Toranoana and I thought, hey, why not give it a try? This review will have some spoilers. To avoid it, you can skip to the last paragraph to see my impression of the game. Read More »

Mujou no Erasmus – The Erasmus two-faced stories

Happy Halloween! What a great time to start off with a spooky thriller game. 

Mujou no Erasmus – The Erasmus two-faced stories is a side game by Novectacle made after Fata Morgana no Yakata. The game was released in May of 2011 and became free to play on Valentine’s Day of 2014. Although Mujou no Erasmus is not related to Fata Morgana no Yakata, just like Seventh Coat, it uses the same characters, but in a different story and setting. It can be played as a separate game, but it’s recommended to play Fata Morgana before Erasmus, same goes with all the other side games. There are two sides of the story, the first with Mell as the protagonist, the second with Michel. Read More »

[VN Review] Fata Morgana no Yakata

The house in Fata Morgana

Fata Morgana no Yakata is a PC doujin (amateur) VN (visual novel) by the circle Novectacle, released in 2012. At first glance, it has Western style art with a horror gothic-like setting. This game does not have your usual type of characters you see in some VNs, and do expect some gore and a great deal of tragic scenes.Read More »
