It’s probably a bit late to be talking about this seeing as a large amount of the Visual novels I’m looking forward to will be released within the next week, But! None the less I will anyway.
A collaboration between 5pb and Nitroplus, set in the same universe as their past releases; choas; head and Steins;Gate (both of which also have anime adaptations and with a anime adaptation for Robotics; notes to be released in October)
What interests me about this game is the sheer amount of interactivity it gives the player with such features as call options message boxes e.c.t. Plus Giant mecha? sounds interesting enough.

Ryouji lives in the secluded mountain town of Sakai-chou. One day, he received a message on his answering machine not to let anyone into the house no matter who it was. In addition, there was something about the letter on the table, but he couldn’t understand all of it due to the static. He opened the letter anyway and inside was a old sepai-coloured letter, with a strange mark that he recalled seeing at the local abandoned shrine. There was a large stone in the middle and when he approached it, he heard a female voice and he felt a pain in his chest. Returning later due to curiosity, he noticed that the emblem on the stone was glowing. All of a sudden, he was dragged into a dark world and a naked girl Kuon was standing in front of him. She was a spirit that was sealed within the stone hundreds of years ago and she decided to thank him by tearing him to pieces and eating him. Just as suddenly, they were back in the real world and all his injuries were healed. It appeared that he had gained her powers which were within the keystone and so he was thrust into battle to retrieve all the broken shards. What is the other world and the village legend which has been passed down? He set out with Kuon and three other girls to seek the truth.

What strikes me most about this Visual novel is well frankly Kuon the girl with freakin’ claws that wants to rip you apart, I’m cool with that. Though it has the same old secluded mountain town setting, it does look like good fun having looked at the site for the visual novel and seen some of the CG’s I’m looking forward to hopefully crazy situations.

But the club he had entered was the unpopular “Theatrical club” no adolescent male student would like to enter …

I’m interested in this Title because it looks like it’ll be a good light hearted comedy, the drama club setting should hopefully provide for a number of funny if not hilarious situations. The protagonists predicament of being isolated from the rest of his class may provide for some sufficient teenage angst to make me laugh at him afew times, we can only hope hes not a totally boring individual. All that couple with the art style just tickles my fancy for some light fun.
