8.5Finished428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~The use of actual photos instead of character sprites makes it one of the few VNs with actual art direction going beyond picking a sprite. Also great when it comes to setting up payoff.2019-01-02
1.5FinishedAgonijaThe title perfectly sums up my experience reading this, from its baaad English translation to the make-shit-up-as-you-go plot.2020-03-15
8FinishedAI: Somnium Files2020-01-01
7.5FinishedAnalogue: A Hate StoryThe concept of reconstructing an extinct civilization and the reasons for its downfall through reading left behind documents is intriguing and implemented very well. The endings and gameplay feel a bit disconnected from the rest though.2018-11-26
6.5FinishedAviary AttorneyFun and more mature Ace Attorney clone with a great artstyle, but too short to leave a lasting impression.2018-11-26
6FinishedBALDR SKY Dive1 "Lost Memory"2020-01-01
6.5FinishedBALDR SKY Dive2 "RECORDARE"2020-01-07
4FinishedCHAOS;CHILDAw man, a great setup gets ruined by whatever that last 30-40% of the VN was. At least it never never got boring, only incredibly convoluted.2019-01-30
-PlayingCiconia no Naku Koro ni2020-01-28
9FinishedCLANNADHas more flaws than I could name here, but the great parts make more than up for it, especially the comedy and feels. Favourites were Kotomi's and Fuko's route as well as After Story.2018-08-22
4.5FinishedCooked with LoveNot really my cup of tea.2019-06-15
7FinishedCorpse Party: Blood Covered2018-09-04
6DroppedCupidHas quite a few very well executed scenes and ideas. The overall narrative didn't convince me though and the choice system feels arbitrary most of the time.2019-05-03
6.5FinishedCursed Sight2020-05-03
-DroppedCyber City 21572020-03-14
9FinishedDangan Ronpa Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no KoukouseiThe Battle Royale scenario isn't the most original one, but the it's mixed with mystery elements and over the top characters and sense of humour makes Danganronpa incredibly enjoyable.2018-08-22
7FinishedDengeki StrykerGood action-manga parody that goes the extra mile to tell a compelling story on its own and give a good moral. At times it even gets pretty dark.2018-08-22
-StalledDies irae ~Acta est Fabula~Pretty fun, but the pacing gets a bit too formulaic too keep my interest for such a long time. I'm still planning on finishing it sometime though.2018-08-22
7.5FinishedDoki Doki Literature Club!Does perfectly what it sets out to do.2018-08-22
7.5FinishedFatal TwelveA nice spin on the Battle Royale scenario focusing on its well developed cast. The finale was kind of meh, but it didn't take away too much from the rest of the VN.2019-02-08
8FinishedFata Morgana no YakataUnlike anything else. If I had to criticise one thing, it's that while all individual stories were very well executed, I didn't like the "backstory of a backstory of a backstory" structure that much.2018-08-22
6Finishedfault - milestone oneNice but nothing special.2018-08-22
7.5Finishedfault - milestone two JouVisually stunning. Also manages to tell an inspirational story without ever becoming too melodramatic or corny.2018-08-22
5FinishedGhosts of Miami2020-03-14
3.5DroppedGrisaia no Kajitsu -LE FRUIT DE LA GRISAIA-I have really strong (negative) feelings about this VN.2018-10-08
7FinishedG-senjou no MaouThe best paced longer VN I've read. Sadly the writing isn't as clever as it thinks it is all the time and the protagonist's character arc didn't really convince me.2018-08-22
6.5FinishedGyakuten KenjiSolid spin-off.2018-08-23
8FinishedGyakuten Saiban2018-08-23

7.5FinishedGyakuten Saiban 42018-08-23
7.5FinishedHate PlusVery similar to Analogue in both setup and quality.2018-11-26
7FinishedHatoful Kareshi: HolidayStarMore of the Hatoful sense of humour and feels.2018-08-22
7.5FinishedHatoful Kareshi ~Kibou no Gakuen to Shiroi Tsubasa~Way better than a dating-sim parody about talking pidgeons has any right to be.2018-08-22
6.5FinishedHeart of the WoodsStarts out very strong, but the fantasy elements in the second half just didn't work for me.2019-04-09
5DroppedHimawariIt's pretty solid, but nothing mindblowing. Dropped it during the last route because I didn't care enough about the few remaining mysteries to go through the amount of SoL it was probably about to throw at me.2018-10-15
7.5FinishedKara no ShoujoThe route structure of getting a sex scene with a heroine right before she gets brutally murdered feels really wrong. Other than that it's a really good and extremely dark VN.2018-11-11
7StalledKatawa ShoujoThe way this VN handles the topic of disabilities is pretty amazing. Other than that it's a solid romance VN, at least the 1.5 routes I've read so far.2018-11-11
6.5FinishedKimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi.2020-05-20
6FinishedKono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO2018-09-10
9.5FinishedKyokugen Dasshutsu - 9-Jikan 9-Nin 9 no TobiraMy first VN, and I still love it.2018-08-22
9FinishedKyokugen Dasshutsu ADV - Zennin Shibou DesuMore epic than 999, but less dark and with some serious pacing issues as well as one or two pretty stupid twists.2018-08-22
7FinishedLadykiller in a BindPretty clever for a sex game. I also really liked the choice system.2019-04-09
