Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia : Revision


Developers : OVERDRIVE
Platforms : Windows
Types : Visual Novel

Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia is a direct continuation of Edelweiss's bad / girlfriendless ending but this time only 2 options been offered- no other than Sakura and Rin's path, it can be choose at the beginning... additionally, they keep 'Ashberry' as its OP but this time it was sung by UR@N instead of NANA which is give it more energetic atmosphere and good impression to the series, but most of its bgm remains same as Edelweiss...

Sakura's arc : as the 2nd terms start, Kazushi and Sakura are in a good relationship, however Kazushi didn't really treats Sakura as a candidate to be his romantic partner because of her nature who are into girls and thus give the impression that she are lesbian- this fiction irritates her much eventually challenges him to makes him fall for her- as Sakura tries all she might, showing girly side of her to him, Kazushi denied it sturdily- yet deep inside both of them, love blooms... Sakura's arc is quite simple compared to others, less unrealistic stuff involved, no dramatic event occur and more into ordinary school life love story- but that makes it more interesting among all 7 arcs, more interaction between the two- Sakura is the best!

what can i say- xD

Rin's arc : Just when the 2nd terms is about to start, Rin have a wet dream, her and Kazushi, she wondered why though the reason is clear... later Kazushi being chosen as a class representative, to be more close to him, Rin volunteer herself as a vise class representative... afterward an incident happened makes Kazushi lost his dick [sure, i'm wtf big time with this] but 'it' has been replaced with an unknown talking being named Poko and later been found out by Rin... well what i expect is something more alluring relationship between those 2, yes i got it but Poko existence somewhat make it the ridiculous plot flow ever of all 7 arcs, seriously... imagine how a timid innocent girl like Rin also ranking no.1 the most wanted bride in the school talking to Kazushi's dick all the time... this is so wrong-

need assistance? xP

3rd path : this choice will be unlocked once you have completed both Sakura and Rin's arc... just a short story, it starts with Kazushi, Sakura and Rin looking out for mushroom in the forest- they intend bring it back but later decide to try it first- given that those mushroom are not poisoned, it gives a differ outcome, having delusions but still sane [in my point of view] ... and what i got- FUNKEN AWESOME THREESOME !! as the mushroom's effect fade, Kazushi confess his feeling and they going out together, yes Kazushi-Sakura-Rin, no clash, harem ending- Kazushi you lucky bastard !!

nice suggestion thar Sakura-

fact that Sakura and Rin topped Edelweiss's original heroin resulting this sequel, and what funny is- Haruka are totally been ignored and left behind by Kazushi in Rin's story but her ignorance still exist... btw there's also a quite frightening scene in Sakura's story that will make you goosebumps... the 3+1 stooges are still the same like usual... overall, ofc i'm very pleased with this sequel- Sakura's arc are finest and the best, Rin's arc might be out of track a bit but the 3rd ending filled that hole completely :D

Edelweiss : Revision


Developers : OVERDRIVE
Platforms : Windows
Types : Visual Novel, Dating Sim

it takes me a whole week to finished this visual novel, firstly i picked it out of curiosity and with english translation available, it's not a bad gamble i guess... the story started with a bunch of perverted loser a.k.a. 4 stooges (including main protagonist) who are on the way to unique island- transferring into all girl school- it seems somewhat similar with Green Green, well more or less... first impression they looks like troublesome idiots, however the existence of protagonist's friend essentially made for a pure laugh, seriously entertaining- so i cant say they aren't unnecessary for the sake of comedy, well not until the plot are split up into one of those 5 routes...

the plot is somewhat interesting but it the characters that make this eroge great and hilarious... instead of magic, they're using alchemy element in this series to play crucial roles for plot progression and dramatic event that will makes you totally dumbstruck at the moment and ofc tearjerking- well not actually in par with Key's but still touching...

Haruka, Mizuki, Ran, Natsume and Mei respectively

Haruka’s arc : Haruka never met any boy at her age until Kazushi come across- that made her ignorant about boy stuff including love and sex... for this route it looks fairly simple for innocent couple development until a certain point, incident happened resulting Haruka lost her life [this is so unexpected] and Kazushi desperately into alchemist stuff to revive her-

Haruka... u_u

Mizuki’s arc : Mizuki is obviously tsundere minus the physical assaults who love swimming... her affection towards Kazushi start when he accidentally found her naked at shore- yet he mistaking her as a mermaid... unpleasant incident happen made Mizuki’s leg paralyze for the rest of her life-

Natsume’s arc : there’s a bit twist in Natsume’s arc and i find myself lost at certain point... to make it simple, she consume a philosopher stone on her way to searching for her farther in Eiden island, this eventually make her lost control- to avoid any bad incident shes been sealed but at the same time she created her own clone and stroll around the school thus she and Kazushi met-

Ran’s arc : Ran is overly obsess with money, she will charges you despite you are her boyfriend even having a sex- this sometimes make Kazushi doubting her love for him but she herself admit that she only doing it because it was him [wtf?], unlike the other arc, there's no huge tragedy happened, she just sluting herself around Kazushi and later need to choose between money of Kazushi's life-

Mei’s arc : she is a kind and hot looking teacher in the school, thus make her are perfect in everything- but behind this fact she is a homunculus created 3 years ago replaced the real Mei Ibuki who are died in accident... learning what love is- makes her body initially changing, hence it will ruins herself which is cost her life- i must say Mei's arc are the best storytelling among all 5 routes...

Bad end : this come from avoiding all girls selection- Kazushi become more desperate to losing his virginity and make decision to become a gay [lolwut]... well he's not really turn out to be one after being consults by his teacher, it end for him be a girlfriendless, that all...

overall, this is very fine eroge, with beautiful CG and nice character design despite lack of posing unlike these day, the seiyuu are fitting well too and currently i'm addicted to it's opening song, Ashberry... although i cant really score 10 but 9/10 already fair enough... i think that if you like comedy more this one wont astound you but it will deliver more than enough to keep you reading more...

spotlight more into Rin and Sakura

Addition note : from start to finish of all arc and story progression, i was thinking why in the heck Sakura and Rin didn't have their own arc !? for me, their charming and characteristic somehow greater than the main girls- Sakura happy-go-lucky feature and Rin as a timid girl, this aspect is surely required in any kind of eroge/harem- sure they are only supporting characters but later i found out that their popularity topped the main girls [i'm not alone] and get their justice for the sequel of Edelweiss, Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia (EEF) which are centered around those two- i was in the middle of Ran’s arc when i learn about this, since than i'm restraining myself to completed Edelweiss first b4 EEF...

p/s: and finally i can start EEF with ease ~

Angel Beats! : Insert Song Single 3


Title: Angel Beats! Insert Song Single 3 - Little Braver
Artist: Girls Dead Monster


1. Little Braver
2. Shine Days
3. Answer Song


- - - - - - - - - -

i suppose this should be the last GirlDeMo single featuring ‘Little Braver’ plus another 2 new song... idk but put ‘Answer Song’ aside, i think ‘Shine Days’ are much better than ‘Little Braver’... now patiently waiting for Angel Beats! Soundtrack :)

Yui in memories...

it was expected but the lost of Yui surely leave a big impact more than Iwasawa, i was never hate her since her debut, well certain people does maybe because of her overly happy-go-lucky characteristic- to each their own- furthermore i’ve tweet it before Yui and Hinata could make a great couple but to think it would end up that way, a Key way... whichever is, rest in piece Yui... u_u

Sora no Otoshimono : Chapter 39

continuation from the last chapter, it revealed more further about Hiyori as a resident of Synapse- she wake up from the dream up there resulting all earthling’s memory who knew about her will get erased including Tomoki’s... kinda tragic for her because their relationship could go further after the confession + Tomoki desperate reaction...


oh Nymph...

meido spree~

that's hurt

that's hurt too


Hiyori is back to claims Tomoki as his own! type Zeta angeloid?

in this chapter, more or less centered about Nymph’s jealousy toward Tomoki-Hiyori relationship in past despite Hiyori isn’t there anymore- this could made an advantage for her to secure her place in Tomoki’s heart or as Hiyori replacement at least... even team up with Ikaros, Nymph continuously failed to pleased Tomoki thus she make it more worse... but when about to giving up, she discover the last triumph card : sneak in his futon [FFFFF-] it works i think concerning Tomoki’s response, she doesn’t stop there and keep on by expressing her longing to be Tomoki’s servant and when she about to confess her feeling- enemy strikes- carve in your mind that this is Sora no Otoshimono typical anti-climax inb4 perfect cliffhanger where the one who attacking them is- no other than Hiyori herself- she’s back !! next chapter : Ikaros + Nymph + Astraea vs Hiyori ?? inb4 more deep plottwist involve...

overall, what can i say more- Sora no Otoshimono by default are enjoying and never failed to amused me... yes it’s ecchi-less this time without Tomoki’s perverted action but surely cant rid his wild imagination ~
