I've followed HypnoLife's works for a few months, and this work is similar to their others. It's a hypnotic story album aimed at women, but I think if the listener keeps their mind open they can enjoy it as well. In this release, the story is a little creepy compared to their earlier works, but not outright horror. It's more atmospheric, with a few story twists that I was pleasantly surprised by.

This group really shines in all aspects of hypnosis audio fiction, and this release isn't an exception to that rule. The induction track is well handled, with a good count down lead in and then a repeated trance reenforcement before moving onto the story itself. The voice actor, Zero, does a very good job at guiding the listener from being fully alert to being in a trance state while experiencing the story track before the ending track, which brings the listener back to being alert. The sound effects were good, and didn't overpower the voice acting. (Nothing sounded muddled or like the sound effects were competing for the track).

Like I mentioned, this album is more atmospheric and somewhat creepy compared to some of the circle's other works, but it's not outright horror. If I had to assign it a genre, I would pick "Atmospheric adult hypnosis". A lot of the creepiness is implied instead of simply stated, which helps the story twists have more of an impact. Even while I was tranced, the twists caught me off guard (in a good way!).
If you can handle the different atmosphere and some of the trance side effects, then I think you would be OK to listen to this. If you're not sure, then I reccomend the trial to see how you handle and enjoy it.

I was really pleased with this release, and I'm looking forward to seeing what else the circle releases in the future! I reccomend this album if you like your hypnosis stories with a slightly darker edge while being entertaining.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Nonbiriya's "Boku no Kawaii Tenshitachi" (My Cute Angels) is a short manga which basically just consists of 2 girls (Lora and Maria) arguing. I'm not entirely sure, but this Doujin may or may not be related to the Yukyu Gens*kyoku video game series (I'm pretty sure one of the minor characters in this is from it).

To start the art is quite good. The character designs are quite good and cute. As for the story, it's not much (simply an argument as I said before). Regardless of this lack of story though, the dialogue and the course the epic argument takes is quite entertaining. However it's not THAT funny and thus I can only call it decent at best.

Overall Boku no Kawaii Tenshitachi is a decent doujin and a good entertainment for a few minutes.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Tomihero's Sakuragumi is a slice of life doujin manga about Middle School Students. Volume 2 continues with more of the same stuff from volume 1 and also introduces some new characters including Yamada Sensei (whom is depressed she didn't get the new Dragon Qu*st).

Most of the stuff that was good about the 1st volume is back in the second. The art is very good, the characters are endearing and the dialogue is clever and entertaining. From Aruru's "Tsundere" personality to Yuuta's complete lack of masculinity; you'll definitely be very engaged by the great characters.
The only real problem I found with this is that it wasn't quite as entertaining as the first volume. Nonetheless that doesn't mean it was bad; just not as good as its excellent predecessor. Either way I loved reading this though.

In conclusion I'd recommend the Sakura-Gumi series to anyone whose looking for a fun and easy to read Slice of Life manga.

Collapse of the Hero -Vixen's Sweet Trap-

A lolikko succubus sweetly entices the virgin hero to his doom. (CV: Rei Tsukinomiya)

This is a saccharine sweet release. After stumbling upon the succubus, your attempts to take her down fail; with gentle kisses she disarms you. But dear listener, you are surely not so weak as to give in that easily. Don't worry. She has three days to convince you to join her! Make no mistake: she will try hard to. With frequent kisses and licks, she distracts you from your mission and educates you on your first time. I wasn't bothered by the frequent references to virginity, since it puts you in the right imaginary mindset: she is a succubus, and you won't be able to resist.

If you want to be seduced by a little nymph, this is a must-buy.

This circle just keeps putting out great games!

This latest was built on using much of the original RGame system. There have been some changes however, some for the better, some not so much.

The original RGame remains far and away the best game I've ever purchased from this site or any other. Simply put, the game has Tension to it where other games give you tedium. The stress of waiting to pounce on your intended victim as time ran down and you knew you were close to a capture was awesome.
Other circles could really learn from these guys.

In this shortened and simplified game, only the Survival mode offers any real challenge - it's more a matter of playing tag with the police than hunting the victim.

That being said, there are some real improvements to be found. Unlike the larger RGame, there is only one animated scene in RGame+, but that scene is a full screen shot instead of the small windows in the original. Also, the still shots for a successful capture are all "action shots".

If you already have the original RGame than you should buy this one for the added art and an opportunity to play a more relaxed version of the game.

If you don't have the original, then this makes for a nice starter game. Then, get the original!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Part 2 of Oota Minoru's Yuro Fantasy continues the story Yuro, Fan, Reia and the others with more funny 4-coma comics.
This volume introduces some new characters including the Half-Elf Jenny (whom speaks in Kansai-ben), Yuro's "rival" Ruvi and the spirit of Yuro's Sword, Guillotine Kaizer (whom bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain enemy of Gamera...).

In any case everything that was good about volume 1 is back again. The art is downright amazing, the characters are entertaining, the writing is clever, etc.... I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about this Doujin; I only wish it was longer.

Overall I'd recommend this series to anyone who wants to read a funny 4-coma. There are only 2 out so far here on DL site but I believe the author has written others (judging from his site) so hopefully they will be added to DL site eventually.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Tomihero's Sakura-Gumi is a Slice of Life manga about the lives of middle school students Aruru, Ruchan and Yuuta. This first volume introduces the characters and tells a cute little story about Aruru adopting a stray cat.

The art in Sakura-Gumi is very good and looks as good as (or even better than) most regular commercial/serialized manga.
The Characters are all entertaining and fall under the usual slice of life manga cliche character types (Aruru is a Tsundere etc...).

One big bonus as well is that nearly all the kanji are given furigana so this should be quite easy to read even for those still learning the Japanese language

Overall I'd highly recommend Sakura-Gumi. There are 5 volumes in total and seeing how good this one was I definitely plan to eventually pick up the rest.

Hmm, I got this after I got ECM2 which is the better product, but it's something that shouldn't be passed by.

Animation: No flaws from what I can see other than a brief "pause" before each scene. Although that could just be my computer or the outdated flash I have, so it probably wont be for everyone. Each scene is very well drawn and animated, and....well the sample just proves how great it is. It looks very high in production. This is the case where I would say, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it."

Art/Controls: I'm not sure of her name, but she's just adorable. She has a bright smile and you could stare at her for hours, then again I'm a sucker for catgirls =P. Enough of that jibber jabber, how does it control? Well each scene has 4~3 boxes that represents the scene's speed, with the exception of two. The scenes are all 'non-controllable' like in the sequel, but just consider that as "old skool" control hehe.

Sound: The music, made by Shinsekai, is great with just a simple scale melody that just sticks in your head. Although it has a rolling acid synth that plays through 95% of the song with some variations. Though the song is great, it doesn't seem to fit with ECM all too well. At first it does, until that synth kicks in, then its, "What just happened?" It has a seamless loops and volume control. Another sad bit is no sfx and no VA, so make sure to tap into the inner imagination of your mind!

Overall: This is flash animation is something you shouldn't pass up. Like I said, the music doesn't fit 100% with it, but its not a bad bgm track. I do recommend this cause on its own, its just....wow. I haven't seen anything with such great and fluid animation since....well anime.

First of all, I honestly didn't expect anything less from sys3.6.3., but this one blew my mind.

Animation: Very well done. Though the movements are, dare I say 'ordinary,' its extremely fluid, flexible, and seamless with the exception of one, but its literally a 1 frame issue out of 60. There is text that pops up here and there, you can turn em off, but its not in the way so why bother? Its just onomatopoeia for the scene.

Art: Petanko Anrietta is simply beautiful in all angles (I'm assuming that's her name, I'm still learning Japanese). The way she looks at you is mesmerizing; not to mention with the music in the bg, it feels as if she was with you. Her eyes, hair, and those cute wittle skulls she wears as accessories....wait what?

Sound: The music is by Sabao38 and and its a catchy, 'devious' type of music. It basically completes the atmosphere of this game, and is a joy to listen to; not to mention extremely catchy! Though, that's it. Unfortunately, Miss Petanko doesn't have a VA or any sfx coming from the scene so you have to use your imagination. Its a bummer, but considering everything else, no complaints whatsoever!

Overall: Its very atmospheric, cute, and just...hhhhhgggnnnn amazing! Though the only thing that could make this better is sfx, that still shouldn't stop you. You'd be crazy to not get this! Although be prepared to rage at the BGM, its catchy tune will stay in your head for many days to come. ^_^

This is very good. well worth the price. everything about this was great. the artist has been known to be good in the past, and this proves that they have gotten better. every page is filled with goodness and it really makes you want more for this. it is that good. this cannot be described in words, or rather it's very hard to do so, but everyone should check this out. If I haven't made it clear by this point I highly, HIGHLY reccommend this.
