-FinishedAiyoku no Eustia(JP) Amazing atmosphere and world building throughout with a mature, young adult protagonist. One of my favourites.2014-07-23
-FinishedAkatsuki no Goei(JP) Ended up being an entertaining SoL. The extreme disparity between the rich and poor was left unexplored and the ending for every heroine was incredibly weak. Still entertaining though; looking forward to the sequel since it seems to address the former point.2014-10-07
-FinishedAkatsuki no Goei ~Principal-tachi no Kyuujitsu~(JP) Fairly entertaining to read, various humorous scenes. Anzu's route helped fleshed out Kaito's backstory which turned out to be extremely disturbing.2020-08-12
-PlayingAkatsuki no Goei ~Tsumibukaki Shuumatsuron~(JP) Like the first game it was enjoyable to read but the conclusion once again felt somewhat rushed and many foreshadowed or built up elements were resolved in an extremely anti-climatic way. E.g. Masaki being alive, Haku's secret, the resolution of the Restricted Zone conflict, Igarashi's ambition, Akemi's hidden grudge, Akira/Ryou's relationship, etc, etc. This game + the FD already matches Baldr Sky's total word count so it's surprising that Kinugasa wasn't able to conclude the story in a satisfying manner. It would appear that Kinugasa's strength lies in writing comical slice of life with a bit of conflict and mystery mixed in but he's weak at delivering an overarching message and plot twist to meet the expectations that he builds up.2020-08-12
-FinishedBALDR HEART(JP) 勝利は我が手に! Good world building and atmosphere throughout. I like how the writers pushed themselves to explore concepts related to simulation theory, transhumanism and a give scientific basis for how perceptions can shape reality. The mathematical and physics references throughout were also appreciated though not always relevent. The drawbacks I felt: The routes felt a bit lackluster and the ending route wasn't as satisfying as Baldr Sky but certainly enjoyable in its own right. The school setting felt somewhat forced and irrelevent. The FEI felt out of place. The villains weren't fleshed out.2016-06-30
-FinishedBALDR SKY Dive1 "Lost Memory"(JP) Great setting. Love the pacing; never really a dull moment. Some character behaviour inconsistency but it's to be expected in this type of split route format I suppose. Looking forward to everything getting revealed in Dive2.2015-02-09
-FinishedBALDR SKY Dive2 "RECORDARE"(JP) Enjoyed the whole series immensely despite not liking most of the heroine archetypes - certainly a testament to plot, world-building and the pacing. One detraction from the experience was that all the pieces of the puzzle didn't fit as perfectly as I would have liked.2015-06-30
-DroppedCoμ - Kuroi Ryuu to Yasashii Oukoku -(English) Finished first 2 routes. Read rest later.2014-07-23
-Finishededen* They were only two, on the planet.(JP) Great atmosphere. Adult protagonist is a plus to me since it means no cliche High School antics. Quite a few flaws but still an overall enjoyable short story. Also I love TENMON & Eiichiro Yanagi's soundtrack.2014-07-23
-Finishedef - a fairy tale of the two.(English) My first VN. Read Miyako's and Yuuko's routes. Love the OST, the animated eyes and lips and the cinemographic camera angles.2014-07-23
-FinishedEver17 -the out of infinity-(English)2014-07-23
-FinishedFate/stay night(English) Read Fate and UBW years ago before finally finishing HF in 2016. I remember falling asleep several times during Fate and UBW. HF was decent but felt a bit anticlimatic due to my inflated expectations formed from other's hype. Overall a decent series.2014-07-23
-FinishedGrisaia no Kajitsu -LE FRUIT DE LA GRISAIA-(English) Read all the routes except Michiru's. Ended up watching the anime before completing Michiru's route so now I can't be bothered finishing it. Fairly enjoyable if you don't take it too seriously. Will continue with rest of trilogy one day.2014-07-23
-FinishedG-senjou no Maou(English)2014-07-23
-DroppedHoshizora no Memoria -Wish Upon a Shooting Star-(English) Asuho and Komomo's routes only so far. Maybe read more later. No real motivation though.2014-07-23
-DroppedKamidori Alchemy Meister(English) Was somewhat entertaining until I asked myself - Why am I grinding in a game with mediocre gameplay and a shallow plot.2014-07-23
-DroppedKara no Shoujo(English) Finished most of it. The "Who's the murderer?" genre is not my thing. Mutilated bodies just added to my distaste.2014-07-23
-DroppedKoikishi Purely ☆ Kiss(JP) My first raw VN; used it to learn Japanese. Maybe finish Elcia's route later2014-07-23
-FinishedMaji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!(English) except: Miyako and True Route in (JP). Quite an entertaining read.2014-07-23
-FinishedMuv-Luv(English) Only bothered with 2 main heroines.2014-07-23
-FinishedMuv-Luv AlternativeA very enjoyable read though the ending soured it for me.2014-07-23

-FinishedSen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki(JP) Like Aiyoku no Eustia, great world building and engaging characters. Cinematic action sequences and well paced story keeps you gripped throughout.2016-06-30

-FinishedSharin no Kuni, Yuukyuu no Shounenshoujo(English)2014-07-23
-StalledShikkoku no Sharnoth ~What a beautiful tomorrow~(English) Read like 1hr. Maybe I'll try it again later.2014-07-23
-FinishedSoul Link(English)2014-07-23
-FinishedTomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~(English) Ending felt like a cheap attempt to elicit an emotional response. This work made me take a step back from expecting great things from Maeda and wonder if he just brainstorms while watching Korean drama and set an ever inreasing quota on the number of tragic tropes that need to be crammed into each of his works.2014-07-23
-FinishedUtawarerumono(English)2014-07-23
-StalledYoake Mae yori Ruri Iro na(English) Feena's route only. Maybe rest later.2014-07-23
