So, it's kind of hard to know what you're getting from the sample art.

A lot of Murakumo's work is similar where the detail is somewhat inconsistent. Although most of the work is complete, small parts of it look unfinished, or maybe a little smudged. It's hard to explain, but you'll notice if you look at the furniture or the airplane propeller.

It's good art. The city scene is a little disorienting, but it's still pretty cool. The airship is marvelous, but you should know that there are characters painted into the cockpit.

Other than a few jagged edges here and there, it would serve most indie game makers well.

It's a decent set if you need something for a science lab. It has a creepy underground feeling to it because it is all in unnatural light. The detail is actually pretty good. There's a ton of stuff in the scenes, and I don't really know what a lot of it is because I'm not that much of a science person. The style is consistent among Murakumo's other work. It's painterly, yet similar enough to other typical backgrounds that you could probably mix and match without people noticing.

A simpler piece, more like a side story of the circle's previous work.

This one focuses entirely on the sex scenes, the are not many to choose from, but as always the scenes a well done, and the fact that you can move around the scen is always a plus, and to top it off, it comes with some interesting binding positions and equipments, recomended form fans of S&M play.

Considering the low price point, this one is really a must buy.

I love the works from this circle. They're short stories in the black and white pictures. They are in Japanese but, the pictures move the story along just as well as any words. This one is the third work in a series about a village that has very bad morals. The main girls is a demon of sorts that has powers that she uses to protect the village. She's in love with one of the younger boys in her village. One of the older men in the village get wind of it and forces her to drink something that makes her VERY submissive. Of course, you'll have to buy it to find out the rest. Which is another good thing about this circle, ALL of their works are just above 500 yen. Very cheap.

This one is one of this circle's earlier works. It's the second part of the At*lier series. Just like the others, it's a short story with Japanese text and black and white pictures. Even without color on english, the pictures convey the story very well and are really detailed, showing good facial expression for the situation and even the enviornments are detailed.

This particular story has Mimi in an awkward position from the beginning of the story. She's stuck in a room with three men and her friend (that she was trying to save) is stuck in the adjacent room. After they have their fun with Mimi, they place her in a dungeon of sorts with a collar on tied to the wall. Of course, I can't reveal too much. You'll have to buy to find out what else happens. Luckily, this circle has very cheap works, so just add it to another purchase you're going to make.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

First in the series of supernatural happenings. The third was released a few days before this review was written. This circle specializes in lolis and various things they do. This one is about a ghost loli that "lives" in an apartment that a lucky guy moves into. One night, whilst sleeping, he's awakened by an attractive loli sitting on him. He pushes her off being scared but, slowly rethinks his actions. You'll have to buy it to find out what happens.

The work is a short story with black and white pictures and Japanese text. No need to worry about the text, though, as the pictures more than make up for that. They're very easy to follow and convey the story very well.

I shan't compare but I have never been this excited before, this installment by this ever improving circle brings about your best friend this time.

His voice does remind me of a particular seiyuu. Great acting of the voice, the sound effects, the realism of like sheets moving, door opening and such.

There are two versions of this, one more drama like where yousatisfaear his inner monologue and thoughts, and another without, closer to imagining that he is before you because unless of course you have telepathy, then ... anyways, that brings us to the fact that you're getting 2 different versions, bonus of a few ecchi omake tracks, a freetalk, and the soundtrack used for the drama version.

I like the whole thing in general. There was a lot of time being invested in the build up of a wonderful warm and sexy lovemaking. He is a little bit, alot maybe of an S in bed, which totally fits his character and powerful commanding voice. The ending scene was also quite lighthearted where he ... takes matters into his own hands to tease you. ;)

It is a must have! Props to the circle. I hope to see a continuation or perhaps this couple's 3 years later story?

This is a sexual training game apparently based on overwhelming the girl with relentless pleasure. You have a variety of tools and techniques at your disposal - many types of vibrators, good ol' sex, and even some stranger devices - and each approach progresses through stages based on the status of her training and how many times you've already used that approach on her, with an incredible total number of possible scenes. Her reactions are very well-done, and the scenes are successfully erotic. As you progress, you advance a number of stats - presumably the girl's training progress in a number of categories - and a couple other stats decrease - presumably her stamina and self-control.

The downsides mainly revolve around the fact that this game is very difficult to understand as a game if you don't speak japanese; just navigating the menu options to save and load the game or to skip dislogue is difficult, and it's very difficult to figure out what the different stats you're training are supposed to be or to tell how well your training is going. There's no voice acting (although there is decent music), and the description's claim that there is "no time limit" is misleading, as the game will inevitably eventually end, usually in a "bad ending" where the girl apparently goes nuts and does something violent (probably, just guessing from the sound effects).

However, the price is very reasonable and you can have a lot of fun just clicking through the scenes at random, and if you're in the mood to try to figure out how to play and beat this as a game, you've got an engaging challenge ahead of you, but feasible with the ability to create multiple save files mid-game. Also, you can get a "good ending" just by using the first option (egg vibrators) repeatedly until the game ends, and this seems to unlock an "endless mode". So, if this product seems interesting to you, you probably won't regret giving it a try.

I must say that Supplement Time certainly hasn't lost their touch making visual novels when it came to this one. I've played the previous two (Which I both enjoyed a lot) and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately this is not a sequel like the previous review said, you play a completely different character from the first two novels. There's not even the slightest mention of him anywhere. It's a great story, there's no denying that. But if you were hoping for a continuation of the first two games then you will be disappointed. I'd like to consider this more of an alternate universe to that of the first two novels (The Visual Novel Database doesn't even link them as sequels and prequels) Still enough of me ranting, even though this is not a sequel it's definitely worth a play!

Wow, I really love this game! My first play-through took about 8 hours, and many others after that took only a few hours since I skipped over many of the already-read texts, and reloaded previous save files where I thought all I had to do was a make a few changes in my choices to get a different ending, and it worked on quite a few occasions.

Where the game really shines is in the personalities of each of the characters. Each person is quite distinct, and with the inclusion of voices, whether it be in Japanese or in English, it only further helps to set each character apart from one another. It is a bit disappointing, though, that there is generally only one in-game stance for each of the characters when you are around them. However, they do have a myriad of different facial expressions, as well as eyes that actually blink, which I must say is pretty cool! My favorite character is without a doubt Mikoto! She’s the childhood friend of Souta. With her bright smile and cheerful disposition, I knew that she was someone that I would grow to really care for in the game, and I did, very much so! I was easily engrossed with her storyline the most. I was glad, too, that ZeroZigen gave her 2 good endings (and 2 bad ones!). In fact, she is the only one with more than 1 kind of ending. I also really liked Honoka’s and Himeno’s as well, but the other characters have pretty good storylines as well.

The music for the game is simply fantastic! Each musical piece, I thought, did an excellent job in complementing the mood and atmosphere of each scene. In fact, the sound test boasts a whopping 90 tracks! For a doujin game, that’s simply amazing, especially since many of them, in my opinion, are very good, too!

Final Score: 9/10 - The "Dummy" texts (non-translated texts), grammatical errors and random in-game errors are why I knocked it down a whole point.
