Hi, this is Beat Blades Haruka translator and professional Alicesoft fan guy Arunaru. Are you looking forward to Beat Blades Haruka? You should be, it’s pretty good, in my professional opinion. But I do think people aren’t entirely clear on what this game’s all about, exactly. Haruka being not so much a visual novel as a game proper, as Alicesoft titles tend to be, you don’t really get the whole picture from a simple story summary or what have you. And the gameplay in Haruka is pretty unique, on top of that. So let’s see if I can shed some light on it here. Continue reading
Hello, this is Kitty-tama with my tester’s corner for Free Friends 2. This is my first (and hopefully not last!) title I beta tested for MangaGamer. It was quite an experience! Free Friends 2 is a significant improvement on the previous game in the series in every aspect. (More after the jump.)

What an exciting year 2015 was for us! We brought thirteen excellent titles to the English market last year with eight of them also available on Steam and added a number of very successful third-party titles to our growing catalogue of visual novels. Our audience continues to grow thanks in no small part to Steam and a greater awareness of visual novels in general. With the successful release of our first BL game (the first in the English market in nearly a decade), we’re also reaching a broader audience than ever before. Without further ado, let’s take a look at how things ranked this year! Continue reading

To cap off the Twelve Days of Visual Novels and 2015 as a whole, we thought it’d be fun to hold a poll to determine the best releases of the year!
Here’s how it works: releases are split into two categories first party and third party. You can vote for one title in both (or just one if you prefer) polls every 24hrs through January 4th. We’ll be giving away five copies of the top ranking games at the end of the poll. To be eligible to win, enter your e-mail via the form at the end of this post––it’s that simple! And just for fun we’ve included a third category for most anticipated titles of next year. You can select all the titles you’re looking forward to but you only get to vote once, so choose wisely!
