Hello. My name is Virgin Smasher and I am here to start a weekly thread series known as my 2 VNs that I recommend to be considered for localization.
Warning: I have not played any of these VNs, so opinions I have on the VNs are most likely repeated from other sources.
Well, let's get into this, shall we?
First VN: Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai
Plot Synopsis from VNDB:
This is the debut game for Uguisu Kagura, which succeeds Yonaki Uguisu. There was a small library on that island. It was the Yuugyouji family’s private library built solely for one girl, Yoruko, who didn’t attend school and spent all her time there. With lots of intriguing books on its shelves, there was no happier place for a bookworm like her. There were also other wonderful and pleasant people who resided there: the protagonist Ruri and his cool sharp-tongued imouto Kisaki, the freeloading tennen moodmaker Rio, and the curious and honest “detective” Kanata. It’s as if they were all brought together by someone or something. Their love of books was the beginning of their youth. Before long, the lonely library became full of light and they became close like childhood friends.
Two years later, Ruri returned to the library after leaving the island due to family matters. Nothing seemed to have changed from six years ago, except that there was a secret which they were not aware of back then: “Anything that is written in the magic book will become reality”. If it’s a romance novel, then a miracle-like love story will unfold. If it’s a fantasy novel, then vampires will appear the next day. If it’s a horror novel, then there’ll be a ghost beckoning you from behind.
Yoruko’s strong will. Kisaki’s beauty. Rio’s cheerfulness. Kanata’s brilliance. Let’s fall in love with them and books.
My take: Yes, I know this can seem like some light-hearted moege or a fun charage or something, but this VN isn't how it really seems. It's a nakige and almost utsuge according to some and it has a lot of mystery to it, which is why it interests me. Not to mention aspects of the plot synopsis are intriguing as hell and open up a lot of possibilities for the story to go to. Finally, the company that made this VN hasn't been snatched up by any of the major VN licensers, so they're fair game to discuss licensing with. I do hope some company considers localizing this VN eventually.
Second VN: Gurenka
Plot Synopsis from VNDB:
Ryouji lives in the secluded mountain town of Sakai-chou. One day, he received a message on his answering machine not to let anyone into the house no matter who it was. In addition, there was something about the letter on the table, but he couldn’t understand all of it due to the static. He opened the letter anyway and inside was a old sepia-coloured letter, with a strange mark that he recalled seeing at the local abandoned shrine. There was a large stone in the middle and when he approached it, he heard a female voice and he felt a pain in his chest. Returning later due to curiosity, he noticed that the emblem on the stone was glowing. All of a sudden, he was dragged into a dark world and a naked girl Kuon was standing in front of him. She was a spirit that was sealed within the stone hundreds of years ago and she decided to thank him by tearing him to pieces and eating him. Just as suddenly, they were back in the real world and all his injuries were healed. It appeared that he had gained her powers which were within the keystone and so he was thrust into battle to retrieve all the broken shards. What is the other world and the village legend which has been passed down? He set out with Kuon and three other girls to seek the truth.
My take: This VN is pretty interesting to me as a chuunige fan and I'm always down for more chuunige to be localized. Also, there's the always great mystery aspect that I love in VNs, not to mention it's a multiple route mystery, which I love. Finally, the plot synopsis has me intrigued in how the story will actually go, despite the fact that the time loop may ruin the story overall. Also, only virgin heroines. Always a bonus.
That is all for this week from me. I do hope NekoNyan takes these VNs into consideration whenever they get around to finding new licenses. Until next week, see you guys.
