I purchased this set mainly for the bedroom background CGs as I was in need of some bedroom scenery with expensive looking furniture.

You get plenty of images showing a mansion style setting both from the interior and exterior.

Images come in three different resolutions so you can choose what suits you best. The images also come with variations in light/time of day, which is super helpful when your story takes place in the same location, as it helps to make it feel more real.

I would recommend this set and I wish I had enough money to buy all of the sets from this circle!

The images in this set certainly live up to their name as they are indeed special locations. The places in this background CG set aren't the sort of locations you would see popping up in every background set around; they're very unique.

I personally purchased the set for a few images in particular and I'm satisfied with them. The quality is great and I love the variation in light/time of day and even weather in a couple of the images.

If you are unsure as to what's included in this set, I suggest downloading the trial version, as that shows you all that there is to offer.

I recommend this set.

As with other background CG sets by this circle, the quality is very professional and comes in 3 different resolutions so you can pick whichever size you need for the images.

There are variations in light/time of day in each image and I especially love the dark ones with artificial light in them as they can also give off an eerie feeling.

I mainly bought this set for the operating room CG, as it's highly detailed and I really needed it for my project.

I recommend this set to anyone who needs a great looking hospital scene.

I love pretty much anything horror related so when I saw this set, I knew I had to buy it!

There are a huge amount of images in this background CG set. Each image has multiple variations in light/time of day and most of them also have a blood-covered version, hence the horror.

The location also seems to include somewhere other than a school, it looks like a shrine or something.

I'm really excited to use this set, it may seem pricey at first, but when you consider the sheer volume of images you're getting I think it seems quite fair.

I recommend this set!

I bought this background CG set to go alongside the tech lab set by the same circle and I'm incredibly impressed.

I didn't expect there to be so many images! There are tonnes of different corridors and the fact that most of them come with damage variation where the walls are broken and crumbling is just amazing.

There's a lot of detail in all of the images and it looks like professional quality background art. I highly recommend this set. I only wish I had enough money to buy everything from this circle!

This background CG set is great. It gives off a very eerie, suspicious sort of feel and would fit well in a sci-fi mystery/thriller story of some kind. The images seem like the lab is underground somewhere, which is cool.

I love the variations in light that you get between the images. Each one has at least 1 variation.

It's a very unusual set that I really look forward to using. Professional quality and great value, I recommend it!

I'm interested in creating a horror themed visual novel at some point so I couldn't resist this pack.

For the price it's definitely a bargain. You get an absolute tonne of content, from creepy laughter SFX to blood splattered backgrounds, items, textboxes and even some BGM.

If you download the trial it'll give you a good idea of what you'll be purchasing. The full download after purchasing is pretty much more of the same.

You really can't fault it at all for the money, I'd recommend anyone who wants to make a horror themed VN invest in this.

Handsome Edo period men

Japanese Pose Art Materials
TUGIHAGI Project
$4.06 / 432 JPY | 40pt (10% back)
Character pose art in classic Edo period Japanese garments. 4 men, 1 woman.
SoftwareUtilityImage
  • Release: Feb/06/2013

  •    

I bought this because I enjoy collecting pose art materials and character creating stuff anyway. On top of that I make visual novels as a hobby, but sadly have no artistic talent.

It's difficult to come across male pose art material, as a large quantity of what I can find is all female. The art in this pack is pretty, as mentioned in the description, it's quite otome style, which is exactly what I was looking for!

There's not a whole lot of variation in facial expressions, but then this is clearly stated in the description so you can't really be disappointed.

My favourite character is the guy with the headband only displaying one eye, he has some really lovely smiling expressions. All of the fellas are gorgeous though.

The PSD is easy to edit, within a second of opening the file I was able to begin changing colours of the individual layers. And since you can remove the facial expressions entirely, it wouldn't be difficult to add some of your own anyway.

Considering how cheap this set is, I would definitely recommend it for visual novel character art.

Soothing Girl -sayuki-
Butterfly Dream
$3.04 / 324 JPY | 30pt (10% back)
An innocent ear cleaning and shoulder massage by the girl you like.

Performance-wise, very calm, quiet, cute character. A little on the talkative side. Does simple ear-cleaning (though pretty aggressive), then massage patting and cloth rubbing, followed by 20 minutes of quiet breathing with some talking.

Listened to it via my phone, so i cannot guarantee that there wasn't part of the processing chain going haywire, however this is my criticism of this:

It sounded like this was recorded with badly tuned equipment that generated a lot of noise, and the noise then removed in post, resulting in distinct sound artifacts. Made this very distracting to listen to and not relaxing at all.

First work from Tomimi Retreat that I've bought and I love it. The premise that you take a vacation in the country side. You agree to spend an entire day with Azuchi Hina (played by Yui Asami) at a rest house run by her and her sister.

It's a relaxing work. Though a bit dramatic at the end. Asami-san has a light and friendly voice. She brings cute breaths and heartwarming laughs. You simply spend the day walking, eating, napping and bathing together. She's a little playful as well. This is the first time I've had shoulder massage from a voice work and hey, it worked as well as a voice work could give you a shoulder massage. There are sound effects used to add a little more flavor. And damn does it taste good.

Overall, excellent product for the price.

I recommend some basic knowledge of Japanese to properly enjoy it. Headphones are a must. Listen to it as a treat to yourself during a time to relax.
