Now that's a nice rumor! According to some dubious 2ch source

- releasing today in Japan, including the highly anticipated sequel D.C. III: Da Capo III
, the highly lolicious Monobeno
, or the highly delayed Shiny Days
Other than slipping a personal note about my sleazy interest in Monobeno, more so than in any of the other titles, I wouldn't really anticiapte a solid ranking for this eroge lot. So I'll just list them in alphabetical order and invite you to inspect each of them (...) Continue reading 'Today's Top 10 Hentai Games Releases'...
