< report >I haven't played all of them, but I thought Dracu-Riot was probably the weakest of the ones I've tried. Senren Banka had a strong common route, and Sanoba Witch had pretty likeable heroines.

So, what say you?Last modified on 2022-06-16 at 17:03

< report >Overall? Riddle Joker. Though I liked Meguru from Sanoba Witch the best. Too bad it's NTRge

the rest of their vns goes from being 6.5 or below to literally unreadable for how boring and bland they are.Last modified on 2022-06-15 at 23:23

< report >Riddle Joker, definitely. Ayase's is the best route, and she's the funniest one. Mayu's a pretty close second. The only route I didn't care for was Hazuki's.

Nene's route in Sanoba Witch was great, as well (except for the epilogue. Seriously, what the hell was even that?)

Senren Banka was kinda boring, tbh, although Murasame's route was fairly interesting. Dracu-Riot was darn near impossible to finish, since the protagonist was donkan to the point of utter idiocy.Last modified on 2022-06-15 at 20:15

Meguru is definitely a cutie pie. And her route was pretty wholesome.

Seeing all the praise for Riddle Joker bumped it up on my backlog list.

< report >I have played most of their titles and i’ll repeat the same.
Riddle Joker was the peak of their catalogue so far.
An great blend of romance and engaging spy thriller action on the side. With many likeable characters that had great development in their respective rputes.

Second place to not make this too boring, i might relegate to Noble Works. It had an interesting setting that was worked well into the plot. Although not all of the routes were set up in an manner i liked, the characters were good. Also it’s an older game but i still appreciate it for what it did.

< report >Sanoba Witch was their strongest title. People who read their older titles are saying that this one is their best work before the infamous Yuzucurse.

Overall I would rank
1. Sanoba Witch for the great character interactions and romance, all routes were good, but Nene's route definitely was something fresh and new for Yuzusoft it was memorable and gave a nice closure at the end. Wakana deserved better though, she was robbed.

2. Riddle Joker was a nice suprise, for once they had a decent MC (who was a lot more engaging and interesting than their other mc's, I consider him a discount Yuuji, but in a good way). Ayase and Mayu were the biggest highlight and basically carried the whole vn for me, Nanami was ok, but boring as hell, Hazuki was... bad, love her seiyuu though.

3. Noble Works - Maya is the only reason you should play it, don't even bother with the others or you'll ruin your experience.

? Still reading Senren Banka, but it's boring with some nice stuff here and there, kinda makes me wish Yuzusoft would stop putting "plot" in their games and concentrate on characters/romance which are pretty good and consistent in their vns.

? Dracu riot. I started the common route, but then I heard NekoNyan have picked up, so I decided to wait for their release, it reminded of Riddle Joker but with Vampires, and it was pretty engaging.

Overall Yuzusoft makes above average charages/moeges, but they never made anything beyond ok/good.
It's like a high quality fastfood of VNs, great art and production quality, decent characters and good romance, sometimes they write a decent plot to back it up, but it kinda holds them down, and they repeat themselves a lot.Last modified on 2022-06-17 at 15:04

< report >I've tried their games from tenshin ranman until cafe stella (only dropped riddle joker midway common), imo Nobble works is their most balanced game with their romance, comedy and plot, and therefore i think it's their best one. I dropped riddle because i hate the way the make the superpower down to earth and inevitably incorporated some normal school norms in itLast modified on 2022-06-16 at 02:55

< report >In hindsight, I probably should've added a poll.
I never got through the common route of Noble Works, but I was kinda burned out on VNs at the time. I'll give that one another shot too.

3. Noble Works - Maya is the only reason you should play it, don't even bother with the others or you'll ruin your experience.
The game was disgustingly boring for me. And yes, I completed exactly and only Maya's route. Well, moege is not my favorite genre anyway - so maybe that's the reason. For romance I prefer Nakiges/Dramas since it's the only genre where romantic emotions can be felt as real. True depiction of love can't be conveyed without jealosy and suffering, in my opinion - and that's exactly what moeges are trying to avoid. Therefore romantic feelings there tends to be too shallow and artificial for me. The only merit moeges are worth to read for is comedy - and NobleWorks comedy wasn't funny at all. With that said I can't compare it with other Yuzusoft titles since it's the only title I read. I can compare it with other moeges though - and even old classic Shuffle I enjoyed much more.Last modified on 2022-06-16 at 16:47

< report >#15 Noble Works was average in every aspect, common route was bearable. Maya basically saved this vn from becoming a complete mediocrity, if only her route was more fleshed out, but it was still good enough to not make me regret wasting my time on it.Last modified on 2022-06-16 at 17:10

(I'm seeing it leading in the polls right now)

< report >Even though I feel that Dracu-Riot isn't the best Visual novel Yuzu has made, it still have a special place in my heart as it was one of my first visual novels, and it was pretty enjoyable even though the heroines becomes temporary annoying at certain parts of their routes (but it's temporary).
