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.

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.

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.

It's so hard to find nice looking male character art for visual novels and this set is so much better than just nice! The sprites are excellent quality with lots of variation in outfits, expressions and hairstyles.

The only thing that confuses me about this pack is that I can't seem to see any PSD's or a character creator option. I only have PNGs. So I don't know if I've maybe missed an update or something.

It doesn't really matter as the PNG files are perfectly ready to use as they are.

In my opinion the art is handsome enough to use in an otome visual novel anyway.

Definitely worth buying if you're in need of great looking male character art!

I absolutely adore this character art set. The style is so pretty and I only wish that there was a male option too.

There are a decent range of options for customisation, such as various hairstyles, facial expressions and outfits.

The character creator style exe included is entirely in Japanese, but in my opinion is easy to figure out how to use without any knowledge of the language. It also allows you to change things like hair colour, eye colour, skin colour and outfit colour.

I really love the feature that shows the outfits in a battle damaged style, with rips, blood and bruising. It helps to make it look more realistic if the character has been involved in a battle.

This would look incredible in a visual novel, but I would say that since it's such a low price, it's worth getting just to mess around creating characters! I can't get over how stunning the art style is.

So the main reason I bought this set of pose art was because I was interested in the fact that there were options to add blood splatter to the character.

I'm in the middle of making a visual novel game that features yandere characters, so this pose art is perfect. The girl is adorable, with a good lot of expressions, hairstyles and clothes to customise your own character.

It comes with a character creator style software, which although is entirely in Japanese; I found it easy to understand and use despite having no knowledge of the language.

If you want a cute little girl to add to your visual novel, then this should do the trick, want her to be yandere? Then even better!

I bought this pack as well as the young girl one, to use in flashback scenes in my visual novel where the main characters remember how things were when they were kids.

Both of the packs are insanely adorable and heartwarming. The expressions are just adorable and there are a good range of outfits and hairstyles for the character.

There are also multiple poses for the character, which is super handy and not often found in these kinds of character art packs.

Like the female version, it comes with over 1000 PNG files that are ready to use if you don't want to customise the character. For those who do want to personalise him, you have an include character creator software (which I actually prefer over PSD files.) It's all in Japanese, but I don't think you really need to understand the language in order to use it. I personally found it quite easy to figure out which options changed the various aspects of the character. You can change hairstyle, facial expressions and clothing. Then there's a separate tab that allows you to even change the colour of the hair, eyes and skin.

I would recommend this pack to anyone who needs a young boy character for their visual novel.

You can tell there is a lot of variety in this pack by looking at the total number of PNG files, a whopping 1260!

This little girl character art is absolutely adorable. The outfits range from casual clothing to school uniform and there are two different poses, which is always really helpful for making characters look more alive. There are also a good number of hairstyle options too.

The character expressions are so cute it's unbelievable. She looks so sweet and innocent that she'll melt your heart.

The PNGs mean that you can start using the character immediately if you don't want to bother making any changes. I can't see a PSD file, but it's not really needed as there is a character creating software included. The character creator is all in Japanese, however, I would say that you don't need to understand the language to get on with it. I personally found it easy to figure out what options changed various aspects such as hair, facial expressions and clothing. There is also a tab for changing the colour of the hair, eyes, skin etc.

I would recommend this to anyone creating a visual novel that needs female child character artwork.
