< report >I have only played a couple of Yuzusoft VNs as most are not translated to English. If I had to choose the 2 best VNs from my limited choices, I would have to go with (ranked in order)
1. Senren * Banka
2. Sanoba WitchLast modified on 2020-06-04 at 18:13

< report >Evening!

As far as I know only Senren*Banka and Sanoba Witch are officially translated, am I right?
NekoNyan are currently working on Dracu-Riot! and Riddle Joker.
While I do hope that at one point all of Yuzusoft's VNs will be brought to us in English, I do not know of any more than those four.
Please correct me, if there are more I do not know about.

Back to topic. As of wirting this post I only have read Sanoba Witch. Senren is in my Steam library and I can't await the release of the other two NekoNyan projects.
Therefore, I cannot vote on this poll as of now. But I will once I have read at least 3 VNs by Yuzusoft.Last modified on 2020-06-04 at 19:42

< report >As of right now, Sanoba Witch and Senren Banka are indeed the only officially translated. Although I feel bad about playing Noble Works and Dracu Riots' fan translation, I purchased 2 more Senren Banka games and gifted it to my friends to make up for it.

Definitely hit me up and tell me what you think of Senren Banka after playing it :D

< report >I read 4 titles so far and i had Dracu-Riot as best in my mind followd by Sanoba Witch which is slightly higher for me than Senren Banka. Overall Yuzusoft titles often have a nice common route but the heroine route drop in quality sometimes.
But i can say that i enjoyed each title a lot so if i had to say Yuzusoft titles are mostly safe choices for enjoyment.

< report ># 4 Oh man, that is kinda freaky :O I was just literally reading your comment in Senren Banka discussions

< report >Yo!
#2 I will comment here as soon as I finish Senren. It will take some time though... It not very high on my "Have to read" list, 'cause I want to wait for Dracu to release so that I always have a Yuzusoft VN in my repertoire to look foward to. I know, kinda silly.. :D

#4 I really enjoyed Sanoba Witch from Start to end. It's a 10 for me. I hope that I am able to disagree with you on future VNs I'll be reading as it is a personal matter. ;-P

< report >I've read Noble Works, Dracu-Riot!, Sonoba Witch and Senren Banka.

Out of these the clear order for me (from best to worst) would be DR->SW->SB->NW.

However, considering that it's not even half of the available options I'm not comfortable with actually voting.

< report >I might choose Natsukana which is a bit different from other VNs in my opinion. Is it the only Yuzusoft VN with "Nakige" tag? The atomsphere can to some extend be described as sad. What impressed me most in Natsukana is the BGM.

< report >With the official English release of Riddle Joker, I now rank the games as:
1. Riddle Joker
2. Senren * Banka
3. Dracu-Riot!
4. Sanoba Witch
5. Noble ☆ Works

Since other games don't have English releases, we work with what we currently have at hand.

< report >So far I played 3 Yuzusoft's titles - Sanoba Witch, Noble Works, and Natsuzora Kanata. And I think I liked the latter the most. So my ranking would probably be:
1. Natsukana
2. Sanoba Witch
3. Noble Works
But they're close to each other - I liked them all.

< report >I wasn't even that big a fan of sanoba witch I find it odd thats so high. Dracu riot I still replay from time to time.

< report >Ive only played 2010 and up so noble works and above but haven't gotten around to cafe yet.
Noble works probably not the best but its was my first official vn ever read so it has a special place in my heart. Though I found dracu most interesting story wise because felt like more was at stake in story without the over top drama that I am not into.

< report >I've really been enjoying Amairo * Islenauts so far, nothing ground breaking but very pleasant and cute. If this is bottom of the barrel Yuzusoft, I can't wait to play more of their titles.

< report >Have played 6 titles so far, if I were to rank them it would be:
1. Sanoba Witch
2. Riddle Joker
3. Cafe Stella to Shinigami no Chou
4. Senren * Banka
5. Amairo * Islenauts
6. Noble Works
Though will have to say that all of Yuzusoft's works has different settings, they have their own charm.

< report >Senren Banka, Riddle Joker and Sanoba Witch are pretty popular, huh? I've only played Senren Banka so far but I'm going to launch into Riddle Joker next time.

< report >Tenshin Ranman! This VN makes me so happy, even just listening to the OP makes me smile. It's so nostalgic. It also helps Sana is my favorite Yuzusoft girl.
Bra-ban! was fun too. I wasn't a fan of Amairo but I've completed at least one route.
I tried Sanoba Witch, Dracu-Riot, and Riddle Joker but none of them grabbed my attention like Tenshin Ranman did and dropped them before completing...

< report >First of all, thank you op for posting this poll!
I didn't play any other yuzusoft games yet than dracu riot!, but i liked that a lot.
So the question is what should i play next that is the most similar to it? I want something that is not just Slice of Life focussed and form the reviews i read Riddle Joker and Senren Banka seem to go way more in that direction, right?

Hell i would even take games form other devs that are close to it, honestly. But this thread is about yuzusoft games, so it might not be the best place to ask general questions.Last modified on 2021-07-19 at 15:34

< report >I suggest reading Sanoba Witch. It does have a few SoL parts, but I would not go as far as saying it is just that. There is a lot going on in terms of plot and twists.
But to be honest, I haven't read any other game yet.

< report >It seems like that is the popular consensus, yeah. I put that on high priority.
Thank you for the recommendation! :)
