The seven wonders of your high school as you get possessed by the spirits. How nice. (・∀・) As I mentioned in my compilation post here, Yuu Gen is a Situation CD whereby you experience getting possessed by different kinds of Japanese ghosts with the famous dummy head mic. Summer is a time where we like telling ghost stories to ‘cool off’. I’m not sure we got this tradition and my dad’s ghost stories were never frightening. (They were mostly bad oyaji jokes.)
Story: (click to enlarge)
This comprehensive map was amusing enough. The hitodama (human souls that glow like a fire) mark where each of the 6 Youkai (spirits) you come into contact with normally are. The spirits in human form, speak to you in the afternoon and lure you to themselves at night. Continue reading
This is by far the one I’m most interested in at the moment. It seems to be the most promising one for now, and Rejet definitely does better with darker stories.
“Anyone who commits any of the seven sins will fall into hell.” This is a legendary tale of the country of Tudor Kingdom, that has strict laws sets in place. The country promises eternal prosperity and is called ‘Heaven on Earth’, being surrounded by lush greenery. (or Utopia) You are the Princess of this country and is living without want but one day, is led by a strange bird into a forbidden tower which you have been told never to enter. There, you meet the ‘Seven Wing knights’, seven beautiful knights who once played a large Continue reading
I finally finished this in 2 weeks, inbetween schoolwork. This is my first Honeybee game and the first that seemed interesting. I have quite a few thoughts about this, and I won’t do a walkthrough, so there will be no spoilers.
As I mentioned in the trial review, this game is pretty easy to go on routes…. Or so I thought. Since there are no character points (like Rejet) or love catch (like Otomate), it was difficult knowing just which route I was on, and even if you chose a selection, you may meet someone completely not related to the character you want to clear. The guides differ from player to player, and I had my own version of a walkthrough as well, so I’d suggest you rely lots on Quick saves. There probably isn’t a set kind of gameplay, since this game follows a real Amidakuji style, but I guess when the male character you’re clearing at the moment blushes or gets happy, you probably chose the right selection. In the end, the only easy thing was deciding whether you were going to an Ayakashi or Human route.
The flow of the game for each (Ayakashi or Human) route is a main prologue and 4 chapters, which then branches out to a bad end or character route. Then each character has good and bad ends.
The storyline was great, not to mention that the seiyuus did a great job portraying the characters. The last time I remember Kaji as a moody character in a game, and NOT a shota would be him as Rath, in my favourite BWS. And Shimono as Uta Continue reading
My thoughts on Sou Sou: I really like his cruel character despite me feeling bad for the heroine, and his track has many surprises and ups and downs… Which was really fun to listen to at first but a pain to translate since hearing the same thing twice makes it less enjoyable when you have ‘expectations’.
As apologies for slacking off, I went back to translate almost 95% line-by-line for this CD. I would say that Sou Sou’s CD was more interesting than Sho’s, but it’s up to you to judge. Unfortunately I don’t have a favourite line for this… But my favourite scene is from Track Six. Read for yourself to see what I mean.
Also, this CD isn’t as ecchi as Sho Katsu Riou’s, so you can read it fine all the way till the part where I caution you. But if you’re under 18, read at your own risk!
Again, please credit if you use my translations anywhere. If I find my translations being used anywhere without credit I will stop all translation projects. Have fun being Sou Sou’s slave. (・∀・) Continue reading
This game didn’t interest me very much when I saw the words ‘Demon’ and I didn’t even bother looking through the website. I thought: “Huh. Another demon thingy? Bo–ring”. But after flipping through DGS I thought ‘hell I wanna play this!!’ And so here I am, to introduce this game for RPG lovers like me.
Well it’s not an RPG but when you have a Warrior, a Mage, a Fortune Teller and the Majoou, what else tingles but your RPG senses? Throw in other random bits like a handsome prince offered as a sacrifice to you, your loyal servants who taught you swordfighting and Batou(s) you with sarcasm, what else can you do but rush to your favourite online store and pre-order Majoou?!
In a world where magic exists, a castle where the demon king lives stands alone in a deep dark forest. The heroine is the daughter of this demon king. One day, her father receives an oracle from the dark god and has to leave the castle for a while, leaving his daughter to take over the throne temporarily. However, it is a difficult position since many demons(magic users) kill humans for fun and the humans view the demons as enemies.
Will the heroine, who has feelings towards humans be able to fulfil her role…?
** Please buy a copy of the CD if you want to listen to it and support the original scenario writers, seiyuus and all those involved in making the CD!
My thoughts about Sho’s track. It’s ecchi. Seriously. Nothing short of R18. I swear. Though it doesn’t make a difference if you don’t understand Japanese… since all you’ll understand are the chu~chu sounds. And my favourite line from hi track is…. “What suits the both of us is not walking under the sunlight together…. But holding breaths in the darkness and entangling ourselves…” It seems so dark and sad.
Please buy a copy of the CD to enjoy it! They are available on a variety of websites including Amazon, Animate Online Shop and other international stores.
The story opens with Sho (Sho Katsu Riou) narrating how the emperor lost his place of power since the whole country was undergoing a period of war, and many Generals aimed to be the next emperor whether they were famous or not. Many of them failed or were assassinated or died from illness. Sho says he admires them since whether they lived a short life or not, they saw dreams and shone brightly. He then says he can’t fight and wonder what he should dream about, and that called ‘the sleeping dragon’, he wonders will he really live sleeping. But one day, a dream appeared in front of him…..

Chronostacia’s review/translation/summary/walkthough/guide/whatever-you-call-it. Is here.
The system controls are Otomate-idiot proof, and pretty with all the cogs, especially when you set it on auto mode. If there is a town scene, there will also be random flower petals flying all over the screen (all year round lol). The system music wasn’t as good as they set it out to be on the website, with an OP and ED not very to my liking… but at every click there will be a sound of a clockhand moving. The art of course is lovely, and glowy, suitable for this theme.
Alright enough of me ♪～ <(ﾟεﾟ)> Here goes.

Review of this game:
(*´Д`)ﾊｧﾊｧ + ( ﾟ皿ﾟ)ｷｰｯ!!
This is a review, not a translation, so at best I will tell you what I liked about the game and a short summary of what happened.
I was really looking forward to playing Ruki but I didn’t feel Sakurai’s voice suited that character. His low voice sounds the same in almost every character which doesn’t make me feel like I’m playing a new guy. (Urgh the effects of Mejojo -_-) The gameplay allows you to play several characters at once in a non-confusing way, which means if you get tired of being sucked by one of them, you can always get sucked by another (lol)
The art is kinda pinky which is girl-stereotype but I like it nevertheless. The original games was horrible with all the abuse, And here we have an additional set of vampires who were originally humans and so a little more human. (In fact we have the awesome Azuazu)
Sadistic Ore-Sama abuses the heroine with words (ok, which of them doesn’t…) but he really just doesn’t want to admit his interest in her. He is too focused on seeing her as food though he actually takes interest in her as a woman. I actually like him quite alot. While trying to prove to himself he didn’t need her, he tried to stay away from sucking her blood Continue reading
