JP title: ちゅーそつ! 1st graduation ~ちゅーそつのTime After Time~
Chuusotsu is a game that ropes you in with cute girls and quirky humor, then pats you on the back, gives you a confident smile, and leaves you with a strong message about life and dreams.
JP title: 姦染 Clipping Chronicle
Hello. How are you? It’s me, your friend Gare, here to announce that spring has kinda-sorta arrived! And that means… well, a lot of things, actually. But it also means that love is once again in the air. And by love, I mean a highly contagious sex virus that turns you into a sex zombie.
Man, people weren’t joking when they said CCC was way better than Extra. Like, I’m trying to think of the best way to illustrate how true that statement is. Okay, so basically… this isn’t “just” an alternate version or a sort-of-sequel. It’s more like… the real story of Fate/Extra. No, I mean, seriously. If you were to ask me, I’d say the entirety of the original Extra exists for the sole purpose of serving as a prologue to CCC, which then goes on to use it as a stepping stone in order to tell the story Nasu truly wanted to tell. At least that’s the impression I got, considering how utterly unremarkable vanilla Extra feels in retrospect now that I’ve finished CCC.
Somewhere on planet Earth, in a fictional apartment shared by two fictional roommates…
“Man, it’s getting late. Think I’m gonna hit the sack. …Oh, what’re you playing?”
“You mean like Fate/stay night? Dude, I loved Fate/stay night! So is that girl Saber? Whoa, wait a sec, why is she wearing red all of a sudden…?”
“She’s not that Saber. It’s a different Heroic Spirit. Look, I’ll explain. She’s actually–”
“What do you mean she’s not that Saber? Then why does she look almost exactly li–“
…Neither of them slept that night.
JP title: ビ・ ヨンド ～黒大将に見られてる～
Looking for a 90s sci-fi anime with cute girls and enjoyable comedy? Well, I’m sure an anime like that exists, but if you want something with a bit more interactivity and multiple endings… like, y’know… a visual novel, then Be-Yond is the intergalactic space horse you should bet on.
JP title: 対魔忍ユキカゼ2
Ah, Yukikaze, dearest Yukikaze. Light of my life, fire of my loins.
Everyone’s favorite chocolate-skinned ninja princess and her trusty partner Rinko (no, not that one) are back for another steamy adventure, in which they infiltrate a high-class academy for would-be lords and ladies. But the big question is: will they manage to keep their virginities intact, their moral standards unaltered, their dignity untarnished and their various orifices penis-free? Let’s see… no, no, no and definitely no. 2017 began with Yukikaze, and thus, it feels only right to close out the year with the second chapter of her less-than-wholesome exploits.
JP title: 悪魔城ドラキュラ 奪われた刻印
Order of Ecclesia, also known as The Last Good Castlevania Game Before Things Went To Shit, is, ironically enough, also quite possibly one of the best in the series. It’s my personal favorite, at any rate. And it came out NINE years ago, if you can believe that.
Boy, do I miss this franchise something fierce.
