The odyssey home to the Kingdom of Rughzenhaide continues in the science fantasy kinetic novel fault milestone two.

From the creators of Sakura Spirit, Winged Cloud has concocted another visual novel centering around magical girls, supernatural battles, and lascivious artwork that ties all together to be describe as a “angelic love comedy” called Sakura Angels.

As far as did my eagerness hold out…well, you shall find out now.
For those of you that celebrated your respective traditions, I hope you had a good one and looking forward to the new year. With the ending approaching steadily, I present to you my last review for this year: Nekopara. A cute and frivolous slice-of-life visual novel of catgirls and their daily misadventures.

planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ is a kinetic novel developed back in 2004 by Key – the studio responsible for such cathartic titles like: Kanon and Clannad. While this is certainly one of Key’s shortest works, it definitely doesn’t falter in eliciting an emotional response like those aforementioned. Thanks to the efforts of Sekai Project, in celebration of its 10th anniversary release in Japan, you can finally experience this bittersweet tale on Steam as an official English release.
