I think that there is a KgNE game, but in Japanese and the fan-translation has been delayed(or stopped?).

My recommendations:
Figures of Happinnes(I had mixed feelings from it, but overall it was very nice)
Private Nurse(never played it, but I heard it's good)
Heart de Roommate(it's good, until you get to the second half, where it becomes a soap opera with no choices to be taken)

ZyX? Most of their games are sexfests with barely any story. :/

I played the trial version of もしも明日が晴れならば and it was rather enjoyable. A bittersweet story about the worst possible(?) thing that could happen to a budding romantic relationship. Not super serious, but still serious when it needs to be, the cute story was very well written in my opinion, though there are a logic hole or two that may be explained later.

Can you tell who is also a fan? The game is funny and sweet at times and Akiho chan is a spunky cutie, a major reason why i'm also playing this game. I just havent been able to play it for quite a while now though.

Tens of thousands of people ranging from casual fans to hardcore otakus, not only in Japan, but across the world.

Anyway, your best choice is Himeya or Palet Mail Services.

There are ways you can find these products illegally, but don't look for them here.

I always buy the ones that I believe I wouldn't regret spending my money on. With the excepation of SOME GOOD ero games that have been translated into English, There's ALOT of other ero-games out there and since it can be expensive to purchase them outside of Japan it's best to make sure you buy the ones you know you'll enjoy. However for me at the moment due to money issues I haven't been able to buy me one.

I'm currently playing some of my favorite and older Ero-games(Kakyuusei 2,Kakyuusei 1, Doukyuusei 2) to help me get over my inability to purchase some new Ero-games for now.

I purchase all the games that I play. I must say, though, that buying ero games outside of Japan is expensive. Japanese games are expensive to begin with, and you'd expect to pay more because of international shipping, but that's not all there is to it. Places like Himeya Shop that ship ero games internationally sell them at retail price. The difference between retail price and many stores prices is much larger for ero games than for console games. For example, at ero game retailer comshop I perordered Leaf's upcoming game フルアニ for 6,580 yen, tax included. That comes out to $56.90. And it's not cheaper because I preordered it, that's just what they charge, even though the retail price is the standard 9,240 yen. At the time of this entry one US dollar is 115.65 Japanese yen. 9,240 yen is $79.90. That's the retail price plus tax. Yet, because people overseas have little choice in where they purchase their games, they can charge $95 for it.

http://www.himeyashop.com/product_in...oducts_id/4224

Then you have to pay another $19 for shipping, so you're paying $114 for a game that someone in Japan pays $56.90 for. Of course, the shipping charge is to be expected. There's really nothing that can be done about it, and you can save there by ordering multiple things at once. Still, it would be nice to see someone like comshop start offering international shipping. Oh, and comshop, as well as many other places, offer used games as well. They aren't "used" like that copy of MegaMan X I got from Game Stop in America, that would only play some of the stages. You see any game on the shelf used the day after it went on sale, if not the same day. And they are always in practically new condition. So, just another way to cut the price down another 500 to 1000 yen. So yeah, piracy is no good but the distrobution of these games overseas leaves something to be desired.

They have stories, but the overload of sex and the moaning of the girls kinda get in the way. CHAIN has a great storyline, but to bad it has no multiple endings.

I discussed this topic at length over at another forum, and yes, buying bishoujo games (visual novels, H-games, whatever you want to call it) is an expensive hobby if you live outside Japan (heck, even inside Japan, it's an expensive hobby).

H-game prices are usually pre-determined according to their types: a full-fledged game typically runs for the basic 8800 yen (9240 yen with tax), limited editions with bonus goodies might run for 9800 yen (10290 yen with tax), etc... But those are really nothing more than MSRPs (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price), the real street price of a game depends a lot on the game's popularity, brand, demands, etc.. Generally, nobody would ever sell a bishoujo game in Japan for the full retail price (amazon.co.jp, for example, always sells their bishoujo games with a big discount (~25%)).

International dealers like Himeya don't really have to worry about competitions, so they can sell their games at MSRP (or even above ) without worrying about losing sales to others.

But that's also why places like Palet Mail is popping up: international dealers that offer competitive pricings as well as hard-to-find (doujin) goods. To use your FullAni as an example, it's listed for $71.99 over at Palet Mail: still expensive by Japanese standards, but far cheaper than Himeya.

Hopefully, more stores like them will be popping up over time, so maybe we'll begin to see more competitive pricings.

Well, I'm back to playing Baldr Force, now that I got my PS2 to play import games It's quite amusing at the changes they made in order to be able to sell Baldr Force as a console game. Looking forward to the Tsukina route, as that'll probably require the most changes...

I finally got around to playing H2O today and it has completely taken over my free time~ For a school drama, it's absolutely refreshing with it's multi-faceted characters and compelling background story. Each scene leaves a solid impression of the depth of storyline and possible connections between the heroines.

~ah.. and not to mention it's absolutely hilarious! I literally fell on the floor laughing during the scene with Hamaji when "she" confessed her true disposition! Takuma's complex reaction was priceless ^^
