Otome Visual Novel Releases of October 2015

Wow… This was the easiest Monthly Releases post I’ve ever written yet!

October 2015 is a pretty dull time to be an otome gamer unless you’re interested in any of the ports and remakes coming out this month. At least this month is a reminder for me to finally play Ayakashi Gohan. Speaking of honeybee, they’ve also delayed Starry Sky ~Spring Stories~ to be released during sometime in 2016.

An “announcement” of sorts: I’ve decided to no longer publish detailed information about fandiscs and direct sequels. The information of fandiscs/direct sequels can often be spoiler-ific (even without me realising due to not having played the original games) and it’s better off to just not include them. In the process of trying to police them, I’ve also come close to spoiling myself a few too many times so I’d like to avoid that as well.

Last, but not least, Art Move Corporation, a.k.a. QuinRose, has allegedly gone bankrupt and stopped operating as of 25th September, 2015. I’ve briefly written more about this after the “Read More” tab.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of September 2015

Is September the 和風 month or something? With Love:Quiz getting delayed until December, every game that’s coming out this month save for the final instalment of Photograph Journey will be of a traditional Japanese setting. While Yunohana Spring! is modern, the traditional countryside Japanese inn and onsen settings have a nice wafuu flavour. Genji Koi Emaki will be about nobles in the Heian period, Teikoku Kaigun Koi Bojou is set in the Meiji era and will involve the military of those times and Yoshiwara Higanbana, of course, is set in the Edo period with an emphasis on the (in)famous red light district. I’d say September is a decent month free of irredeemably shitty games, and that’s just fantastic!

Otome Visual Novel Releases of June 2015

Look! June is a shitty dump month again, just like last year. At least more than one new release is coming- the otome world has spoiled us by releasing two instead of one. How generous. Though it’s really too bad that Vamwolf Cross and Dynamic Chord don’t interest me. None of the ports and remakes interest me as well, so I guess June will be my ultimate backlog month. At least I can expect a nice early June since I’ll have started playing the full release of Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen by then. Until next month, happy gaming!

EDIT 3/6/2015: Apparently the “June Curse” strikes again this year and only Dynamic Chord will be released this month… unless they decide to delay as well! :O

Otome Visual Novel Releases of April 2015

It’s been a year since I first started the Monthly Releases series of posts… Can’t believe how quickly time has passed! Sadly, outside of this, there’s nothing truly notable about April 2015. It’s such an obvious dump month that I feel sorry for it! Fandiscs, sequels, ports, remakes… the only game that is a truly new release is Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Shizuoka-hen & Nagasaki-hen~. Good timing, in a way, since I’m very busy with my studies this month and could use the mid-April holidays to catch up on the otome games that have been stuck in my backlog for ages!

Title Release Date Platform
Norn9 ~Norn + Nonette~ Last Era 19-3-2015 → 2-4-2015 PSV

Otome Visual Novel Releases of March 2015

March will be a be a massive month, with a jaw-dropping 8 new releases to choose from with quite a bit of console variety. In spite of being a big month, many of the games are fairly uninspired. Not a great month to look for originality, but at least with the done-before settings here, nothing astoundingly stupid/crap has been tacked onto it so as to make it more interesting than it actually is. I’d say most of the games are safe choices unless you really loathe specific themes of the releases. It’s been a long time since there was a month with very minimal rubbish, so maybe this is the otome gods’ birthday gift to me!

Title Release Date Platform
Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama ~Go to the top~ 5-3-2015 N3DS

Otome Visual Novel Releases of February 2015

Ugh, February is certainly not my month! It’s sad there are just as many ports/remakes/re-releases as there are new ones. Even so, Diabolik Lovers fans can rejoice, as the much-looked forward to sequel, Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate, is finally coming out after a long line of ports and fandiscs. Wafuu and fans of brothel settings have Otomate’s Hyakka Yakou and Hituzigumo’s Gyakuten Yoshiwara remake, Otoko Yuukaku to look forward to. Hyakka Yakou combines a Yoshiwara-like setting with the recently seemingly popular ayakashi theme, so perhaps ayakashi fans may find some worth in trying it out.

Newcomers on the otome world block, Primula, will be releasing the first of their four “episode” Taishou x Alice series; a game that combines fairytales, Alice in Wonderland and a bit of wafuu themes. Uta no Prince-sama fans, particularly of the Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ All Star, can get to enjoy its fandisc coming out this month, Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ All Star After Secret. Finally, fans can enjoy a few hours of fun with the fourth of honeybee and Denki Girl’s Style Photograph Journey series, ~Koi Suru Ryokou Niigata-hen & Hokkaido-hen~ while waiting for the highly anticipated second game of the Shinigami Kareshi series, Un:Birthday Song ~Ai wo Utau Shinigami~.

New releases:
~ Hyakka Yakou [PSV] [12-2-2015]
~ Taishou x Alice Episode I [PC] [20-2-2015]
~ Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate [PSV] [26-2-2015]

Otome Visual Novel Releases of January 2015

2015 will begin with six new releases, nothing strikes me as a “must-play”, but I think Kokuchou no Psychedelica sounds like the strongest title this month. That doesn’t mean the rest are bad-looking titles by any means. ROOT∞REXX will be released this month after being pushed back from December 2014. New company éstciel worked with Arcana Famiglia’s HuneX; releasing Kaleidoeve this month. As Kaleidoeve is the only PSP title this month as otome companies rush around to cash in on the un-piratable PSV, unless you happen to be a Satomi Hakkenden fan, that’s the only new release for your console!

Speaking of which, if you’re following the Satomi Hakkenden series, Murasamemaru no Ki will apparently be the third and final of the series. Satoi and honeybee fans can finally get their mitts on the first of the two Shinigami Kareshi PC games. Finally, for us “old” otome gamers, A’sRing’s second release, Orfleurs will be coming out. After playing the trial, I can say with confidence that if you’re looking for story with your porn this month, you may disappointed.

New releases:
~ Kaleidoeve [PSP, PSV] [22-1-2015]
~ ROOT∞REXX [PSV] [22-1-2015]
~ Satomi Hakkenden: Murasamemaru no Ki [PSP] [22-1-2015]
~ Kokuchou no Psychedelica [PSV] [29-1-2015]
~ Orfleurs [R18+] [PC] [30-1-2015]
~ Shinigami Kareshi Series: Re: Birthday Song ~Koi wo Utau Shinigami~ [PC] [30-1-2015]

~ Diabolik Lovers ~more, blood~ Limited V Edition [PSP  PSV] [Link] [15-1-2015]

Otome Visual Novel Releases of December 2014

Enjoy the filler month, folks! My guess is that most companies will release their lower-priced products and/or ports to tie themselves over for maximum profits for January, where many Japanese fans will have received money from family thanks to otoshidama on New Year’s!

To be honest, I’m not really interested in any of the new releases this month other than Price Pia Carrot and Photograph Journey. I do find it amusing that Diabolik Lovers made a fandisc of a fandisc, though. There’s Kuroyuki Hime ~Snow Magic~ for those who enjoyed its predecessor, ~Snow Black~. honeybee will be launching the first of their three Dynamic Chord games, which will focus on the up-and-coming high school band, “rēve parfait (it means “perfect dream” in French)”. Let me be the first to tell honeybee that no teenage group of boys would name their band that!

New Releases:
~ Diabolik Lovers Vandead Carnival [4-12-2014]
~ Kuroyuki Hime ~Snow Magic~ [4-12-2014]
~ Prince Pia♥Carrot [PC version] [18-12-2014]
~ Dynamic Chord feat. rēve parfait [26-12-2014]
~ Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Hiroshima-hen & Kanagawa-hen~ [26-12-2014]

Ports, remakes and re-releases:
~ Norn9 ~Norn + Nonette~ VAR COMMONS [PSP → PSV port] [Link] [11-12-2014]
~ Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder & Twin World~ Twin Pack [PSP, re-release] [Link] [18-12-2014]
~ Kaeru Batake DE Tsukamaete☆彡 [PSP → PSV port] [Link] [18-12-2014]
~ Shinsouban Clover no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~ [PSP, remake] [Link] [18-12-2014]

Delays:

In other, unrelated news, I’ve decided to change my scoring system before publishing my next review(s), so head to the FAQ section if you’re interested in checking it out.
