List of All Posts

For the sake of creating a blog that is easier to navigate through, I came up with an idea. Since WordPress’ search function is not always that precise, I need to make it easier to find specific posts. You can either use the categories to search for what you’re looking for or just use the search function in the menu bar. Now, to get you to your desired blog post a little easier, I’m gonna list all of my posts in this list right here. I’ll divide everything into categories and simply list all the posts alphabetically~

[Guest Review]: Sengoku no Kuroyuri ~Futanari-hime to Reizoku no Shoujo~


Since the translation of the first Sengoku no Kuroyuri visual novel was finally picked up again, it is now time for the first review of this title, done by Ibara Miko.

Read on if you want to find out what this game is all about, but be aware of the fact that this review might spoil the story for you.
With that said, enjoy the review~
 
Genre: Yuri, Futanari, Eroge
Platform: PC (doujin work)
Length: About 8 hours
Year: 2011
Developer: Kotoba Asobi

General Info: The 1st installment of the Sengoku no Kuroyuri series is brought to us by a doujin group called Kotoba Asobi. It takes place in the Sengoku period in Japan and shows us one of the darker yuri stories.

Story: 9/10
This is the darkest yuri game I’ve ever come across, and it’s exactly this kind of yuri darkness that makes me play this game (mostly the second one) over and over again.
The story is about the yuri sadist princess, Saku, struggling to achieve her personal goals in the Sengoku period. 
Those are:

[Guest Review] Visual Novel – Akai Ito

It’s time for yet another guest review~
This time, get ready for probably the longest review we’ve ever seen on YuriReviews.
Big thanks to Bigbossbalrog, the author of this post!

Title: Akai Ito (Redstrings in English)
Year: 2004
English Translation: Yes, but text only
Length: 5 routes (Besides the fifth route, which is a good deal shorter. Each route took me around 15 hours to complete.) In total, around 65 hours.

Genre: Horror, Romance, Mystery, Yuri
Platform: PS2, PS3 (was ported to the PS3, and can be bought on the Japanese PSN), PC (Success released a demo for the PC, which only covers the first two nights)

Developer: Success
Rating: 15+

Note: While Akai Ito is officially considered by Success to be an “all-ages” yuri visual novel (it’s rated 15+ by the Cero rating system), that only applies to it having no eroge content. It’s a relatively bloody, dark, and depressing game

Akai Ito’s plot starts several months after the tragic death of the protagonist’s mother. The protagonist in question’s name is Hatou Kei, a perfectly normal high school student. She’s informed by her lawyer that her father, who died in an horrible accident years ago, actually owns property, and that the property now belongs to her, due to her mother’s death. During summer vacation, she boards a train and heads to her father’s birth place of Hemizuka, a small town in the countryside, to see if her father has left behind anything for her. In the twilight, Kei dreams about a mysterious tree and a young woman seemingly consumed in sadness. In the land of Hemizuka, guided by the pale light of the moon, Kei discovers an ancient conspiracy wrapped in her own blood through meetings with a raven-haired demon hunter, the best friend of her late mother, a young girl who’s always accompanied by a white fox, a pair of vampires who appear to be children, and even the sad-looking girl from her dreams. One phrase from Kei’s dream keeps her from falling into darkness, “Someone important to me has vanished.”.

Visual Novel Review: Sono Hanabira: Lily Platinum

Do not read this if you’re under 18.

Story: 7/10 & Characters: 10/10
The 10th installment in the Sono Hanabira series yet again features my two favorite characters, Shizuku and Eris. This time, since they are already in a relationship, this game focuses on their everyday life as well as some special occurrences, such as their first date, their club activities, and also some situations in which Shizuku shows her jealous side.

Since this is an eroge, you can yet again expect a lot of sex scenes. In fact, expect a sex scene every 10 or 15 minutes, because that’s basically what will happen, but more about that later.

First things first. Since this couple is my absolute favorite SonoHana couple and also one of my Top 10 favorite yuri couples in general, I was expecting a lot from this game. Luckily, it didn’t disappoint. It’s actually quite the opposite.

Visual Novel Review: Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o: Amakute Hoshikute Torokeru Chuu


Don’t read this if you’re under 18.

 
Developer: Fuguriya

Artist: Peko

Length: Around 5 hours

Year: 2009

Genre: Adult, Yuri, School Setting, Age Gap, Loli 

Story 7/10 and Characters 6/10:

Suminoe Takako is a new-fledged and still inexperienced teacher, working at the elementary department of St. Michael’s. You could say she’s not really the best teacher since she neither knows how to really get a class full of young girls under control, nor is she a very assertive person. One of her students, Houraisen Runa does a way better job at capturing the attention of her classmates and making them do whatever she wants them to. She certainly knows how to get what she wants and ever since she arrived at St. Michaels‘, the one thing she desires the most is her own teacher Takako, who is not all that happy about her overly demanding student.

Unlike most SonoHana games, this one doesn’t only show how two girls meet and eventually fall in love with each other, it goes a little deeper you could say and it has a little more in store for you when it comes to an actual plot as well.

Visual Novel Review: Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o and Kuchibiru to Kiss de Tsubuyaite

sono hanabira yuuna nanami
Do not read this if you are under 18.
After reviewing the 8th, the 2nd and the 4th of the Sono Hanabira games, here’s what I have to say about the 1st and 6th. I know, my reviewing order is kind of messed up, but bear with me.
Developer: Fuguriya
Status: Both games are translated
Genre: Yuri, Eroge, Adult, Romance, School Setting
sono hanabira yuuna nanami
Nanami (left), Yuuna (right)

Characters: 8/10

Nanami Oda: She’s a pretty ordinary girl, cute but not particularly beautiful and also totally average in school. The only thing that makes her stand out a little, is the fact that she’s a total klutz. It sometimes even seems that she has the special ability to get herself into embarrassing and difficult situations. However for her loved one, she is doing her best to change into a more suited partner and a student that is loved and respected by everyone.
Yuuna Matsubara: Yuuna is one of the most beloved students in all St. Michael’s.  Not only is she always on top of her class, she’s also a member of the admired student council. But what no one around her can see, is her real personality that she only shows whenever Nanami is with her. Despite her elegant and calm appearance, what lies beneath is a huge pervert who’s using manipulative methods to get what she wants. Some pouting here and some fake tears there is usually enough to make Nanami do everything Yuuna wants her to.
A klutz and a pervert don’t really sound like the best combination, but adding the fact that Yuuna is not only a huge pervert but also one of the most respected and loved students in the whole school, makes the story really interesting. I kind of love the way Yuuna manages to switch between honor student and spoiled little girl and how she is able to use some dirty tricks whenever Nanami refuses to do as she’s told. And even though this might sound like a really weird relationship, they actually share one of the strongest bonds out of all the SonoHana couples.

Visual Novel Review: Sono Hanabira Watashi no Ouji-sama and Aishisa no Photograph


Do not read this if you are under 18.
Some of you might wonder why I chose to review 2 Visual Novels at once. Answering that is simple. Both games display the same main couple and since “Aishisa no Photograph” is the continuation of “Watashi no Ouji-sama”, I think it’s more convenient to just review them together.
Developer: Fuguriya

Status: Both Translated

Genre: Eroge, Yuri, Romance, Incest
 

sono hanabira kaede sara yuri
Kaede (left), Sara (right)

Characters: 7/10
Kaede Kitajima: Kaede is a very shy and introverted girl trying her best to not stand out from everyone else. Unfortunately she was (again) elected to become the class representative and in addition to that, her relationship with Sara makes her stand out even more.
Sara Kitajima: Over the years Sara has become a quite popular teen model who is often busy with work. Despite that Sara became a cheerful and very straightforward girl that always speaks her mind and wears her heart on her sleeve.
Other (minor) characters take part in the story as well, but they are mostly so unimportant to the plot, that they are just named “Girl A/B/C”. Other than that, we have some guest appearances of characters from the other Sono Hanabira games as well.
Oh and I totally forgot to mention, Sara and Kaede are cousins. 
Do I care that they are related? Nope. 
I think it’s no big deal, but then again, as a yuri fan it wouldn’t even bother me if they were sisters.
