If you aren't already entranced by the pink-haired cutie in the picture (as I was), then... well, you're not gonna enjoy this game, 'cause she's the sole female character.

However, you do get to do all sorts of things to the female lead of this production. (Arai Misaki, Vice-President of the Student Council) You'll take on the role of Shiina Kouta, a quiet, down-to-earth guy who doesn't wish for any "plus"es in his life, because "where there is a plus, there is also a minus".

Until he met her.

He will happen upon a mysterious shop that bestows upon him a notebook called the Dia Gnosis, with the power to shape reality to the original intent of the owner. Even if that may go against the will of others...

So, you get to bend the female to do your bidding; kissing, oral, straight, and then some of the more lewd, overt stuff. It will span the course of about 2 weeks, after which you'll be treated to an ending that hinges on the main character's choices thorughout the game.

(One warning: I couldn't find the "True" ending until I updated the product by going to the creator's home page, after which the ending just clicked. I have no idea how it happened, or what the path branching involves. Somebody tell me if you find out. :)

Also includes a gallery mode and replay mode, where you get to watch the h-scenes again.

Cute female lead, high quality CG graphics, fitting BGM, and an intriguing story = Another win v-novel. On par with industry professionals like Key and the like.

The voice leads me to believe she's 8 though.

Very cute girl. Maids are always apeealing. Animation is pretty good. Style is excellent, and if the game was any longer, I might have checked off "PickUp!"

You get 4 or 5 standalone scenes in which a maid services you in all of its looped glory. I mean, great! You don't really need any more than that. It is really moe beyond belief. But short. Yes. You get what you pay for.

I shoulda just bought a sandwich.

The only words that came to mind playing this game were... "Stamina Drain". Wowz.

Your older sister (and hump-partner) tells you that she's now seeing someone. This effectively puts a surprisingly well-built you, out of the picture. She says however, that she still loves you, and wants one last night with you.

The game begins here, with you and your sister going at it in various ways for the next 8 or so hours (apparently, they still live with their parents whilst the interludes) that the house is empty.

8 hours!

Appealing gimmick aside, the game is a B+ I'd say, graphic and gameplay-wise. Detail is quite apparent, however, considering the voice doesn't just stop and wait for you to click again, (coming back to the computer an hour later to realize you're still playing, only to hear the girl scream out of nowhere like in other games...).

Artwork, I personally didn't find appealing, although the H-scenes were admittedly developed very well, double entendre et al. I just like the more petite anime-like non-realistic figures. Go fig.

Story... is kinda nice at the end. Well, they're always nice, I think that's a standard among novels and sim games. It will give you a choice of endings depending on your actions throughout the game (you can kiss for the entire 8 hours, or navigate through to unlock bath scenes, self-pleasure, etc.).

Just... give the guy a little rest once in a while. Whew!

... but a nice game nonetheless. Scratch that. Nice short story, and probably only for Yayoi's (the older sister) story.

The main character awakens on a beach to find he's been saved from a watery grave by two sisters who came for a day of fun. Out of gratitude, he agrees to become their playmate for the day. Choosing between the well-endowed, shy Yayoi, or outspoken (loli) Hadzuki, he will take advantage of the beach situation and swimsuits and all.

Well, play time roughly about 20 minutes per story, less if you don't/can't read it. Choices are made linear beyond expression. (There's only one path choice, rendering all other choices useless. Enjoy your 10+ save slots!) Clocking in at 4 H-scenes for Yayoi and 3 for Hadzuki, it's quite short. But the attention to detail in terms of artwork, voicework and overall style of the game make it a worthwhile playthrough.

I think I got my money's worth on BGM alone. But that's me.

"Jiii-zasu!"

If you're fortunate enough to understand Japanese, then you might enjoy this game.

The game is straightforward, not more than a visual novel; a story of Yuna, a witch in training whom comes to stay with you, (supposedly) her "onii-chan" and instructor, as assigned by her mother. Her assignment... is to write a report on sex and its relation to magic.

Fortunately for you, you're the lucky person to teach her the ways of the world, and you do it in the oh-so fabulous ways that non-descript faceless main characters do. Straight sex, uh... straight sex. That's about it. Oh, and cat-ears (surprise at the end of that scene).

If I may spoil the content of the game slightly, there's only about 3 scenes/events, and they mostly take place before you two go to bed. The ending mentioned something about this being the extent of author's work. Too bad, it seemed pretty cute for a visual novel, I would have liked to see more.

As you can see, cute girl in alluring magical attire. That being said, I wouldn't recommend this to just anyone. In fact, I would only recommend it in the case that you appreciate text and very limited cg scenes.

But it's cute. I'll give it that.
