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~
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.
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)
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)
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.”.

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.
