2021-05-147.5Lucy - Geunyeoga Baradeon Geot -
2021-05-117.5G-senjou no Maou
2021-04-107Tomodachi Ijou Koibito MimanPainful common route, but the endings were ok
2021-03-187.5One ~Kagayaku Kisetsu e~Fun relaxing time, cool to see early Key formula, though it's nothing special in the drama department.
2021-03-036Infinity cure.Izumi cure is pretty crazy which is nice, Yuka cure is unnecessary.
2021-03-027Moon.Very messed up, but strangely compelling. Glad Key went with nakige instead of psychological horror.
2020-12-258SnowMix Kanon with Air, throw in an extremely comfy wintery atmosphere, set in not in a high-school, and you've got a great VN.
2020-11-227.5The Dandelion GirlWhy did they lower the age of the girl?
2020-11-138Robotics;Notes DaSHMake no mistake this is a fan-disc not a new SciADV entry, it may be marketed as one but it isn't. 70% of the VN is messing around non-canon fan-disc stuff, last 30% it does actually get serious but feels like a bit of a rehash of the original. Still good, just let down my expectations.
2020-10-268Robotics;NotesGood time, there's quite a lot of buildup to the breaking point which felt a bit slow at times, but once it gets going it gets really engaging.
2020-10-137.5Miagete Goran, Yozora no Hoshi oTypical romance VN with some ok drama, a nice experience if you're looking for that.
2020-10-088Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei
2020-09-179Angel Beats! -1st beat-Much better than the Anime, the depth to the characters and possible choices you can take makes this a great read, too bad 2nd beat never.
2020-09-097Shingeki no Kyojin: Kui Naki SentakuJust watch the OVA.
2020-08-268Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi.Interesting meta plot, art's great but the low resolution harms it. I chose Miyuki.
2020-08-238.5Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~Not life changing for me, but the story's still great, made me think about stuff, lots of mystery and I liked the answers. Oto ni Dekiru Koto is one of the most relaxing songs I've ever heard.
2020-07-277.5Hatsukoi 1/1Typical dating sim, I hate Runa, Kyou route made me order a pizza.
2020-07-067.5True RemembranceIt's True, I have no Remembrance of this VN, not even a year after I read it
2020-07-047.5TegamiNice short doujin VN, read it if you have 30 mins spare.
2020-07-038Adabana ItanA personal tale wrapped in Japanese folk tales, great at what it goes for. Aniplex why is this region blocked...
2020-06-308.5ATRI -My Dear Moments-An enthralling read, the small cast of characters and post-apocalyptic world really drew me in to it's atmosphere. Art and OST are phenomenal too.
2020-06-257Tokyo BabelPeaks in the first 2 hours, I've forgotten the rest of the VN. Forgettable Chuunige, lots of religious concepts though if that intrigues you.
2020-06-096The Best Eroge Evermeme
2020-04-294Psycho-Pass Sentaku Naki KoufukuHorrible, this is an absolute cash grab, 5 hours of content stretched to 20+. There's 2 protagonist to choose from but they play out almost identically with a couple changed scenes, and about 25 endings but they're all very similar and a pain to get. The actual story's the most forgettable 5/10 thing I've ever read. No wonder this got multiple permanent price cuts on steam, still not worth the money though.
2020-04-057Hoshi no Hito ~Planetarian Side Story~Future story was cool.
2020-04-039Remember11 -The Age of Infinity-Saviour of the infinity series, the pacing is one of if not the best in any VN I've read, the mystery is very engaging, and the true answers to what is going on blew my mind. The ending is controversial, but after reading what the idea behind it was, I absolutely adore it and would barely change a thing.
2020-03-247.5Ever17 -The Out of Infinity-Heavy disappointment, sure the true route's great and there's occasionally cool stuff, but the path to it is just generic boring slice of life dating sim stuff, where is the tension? Just read 999 and Root Double instead, this is only worth it for Remember11, should have been left in the past. The Muv-Luv Extra/Unlimited of the Infinity Series
2020-03-176Never7 -The End of Infinity-Boring and too long, but the true ending being good + Stockholm syndrome kicking in means I look back on it fondly. Main theme is better than Ever17's Karma.
2020-03-049428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~Surprisingly engaging and well-done, the real-life pictures work very well, and the plot really heats up as it goes on.
2020-02-228.5Summer PocketsGreat Key VN, though somewhat underwhelming. The OST and Art is probably Key's best, and Kamome's route it one of my favourites in Key, but the rest of the routes were just good, not great. True route wasn't the strongest route in this, which never happens in a Key VN.
2020-02-097.5IslandDisappointing, it started off really well, though some routes weren't the best, Winter was a great arc that I really enjoyed, but then the ending just let me down hard. I preferred the anime's ending (even if the overall product was worse)
2020-01-29607th TheaterNice crossover parody VN, the second one story is much better than the first.
2020-01-297.5Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni - Dai Ni YaReaper of the 13th Step is seriously amazing, at least read that even if you skip everything else.
2020-01-277.5Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni - Dai Ichi YaRyukishi's weakest but still pretty good, stories vary in quality a lot, first few are the best.
2020-01-048Gyakuten Saiban 3Returns to being as fun.
2019-12-308.5Rei-Jin-G-Lu-PMafia's a fun game so this was enjoyable for me, ending's not the best but overall it's just very entertaining.
2019-12-179Rose Guns DaysStarts off very slow and dull, but gets better and better with each year, 1949 is amazing and made me actually feel terrified for the characters. Ending is a bit rushed, but it's solid enough
2019-11-198Witches & Woodlands
2019-11-054Neko Para Vol.0 Minazuki Neko-tachi no Nichijou!Why?
2019-10-265Neko Para Vol.1 Soleil Kaiten Shimashita!How does this have an active fanbase? The actual plot is terrible, are they all just fans of the H?
2019-10-217.5Gyakuten Saiban 2It's a bit less fun.
2019-10-155FamicolleADV Steins;Gatemake something new
2019-10-128Umineko no Naku Koro ni Saku
2019-10-098Fata morgana no Yakata -Another Episodes-Kind of a disappointment coming off the original, the expanded prequel was nice, but a lot of it was in the original VN so it wasn't necessary. Side stories were cool though.
2019-10-075Carrot Cake Jinkaku Shuffle JikenHonestly forgot what happened in this... NarKarma EngineA when?
2019-10-077.5Tsumugareru koto mo naku, Kyakkou mo Abizu, tada Horobi yuku Monoga...These are ok
2019-10-058Ciconia no Naku Koro niPhase 1 was good, though OST was very disappointing, took quite a while to get going too.
2019-10-029.5Fata morgana no YakataTop tier, I was loving it within an hour, and it continued to get better and better as more was revealed and the plot became clearer. OST's one of my favourites and the unique art-style makes it a delight to read.
2019-09-238AI: The Somnium FilesIt's Uchikoshi, was a fun ride but held back by some bad decisions, namely the gameplay being trial and error, and the fight scenes killing the tension every time.
