Eroge Bus Episode 11 - Shiny Days Review

In this episode I review 0verflow's latest game, Shiny Days.

For those curious what my technical problems were: Basically, my documents folder has files that when accessed, throw an unrecoverable page fault; which means that windows is trying to access an address in memory (and in this case hard drive) that does not physically exist. I tried doing a full chkdsk, but it still didn't fix the issue, so I lost an episode due to me not able to access the folder without getting a blue screen. (I wasn't able to save my recording without getting a blue screen.)

  1. West coast is Ero coast! :p

    1. Definitely get your little 'a over for AX! I'm curious what you eastern city slickers think of these breed of cons.
      I know the ero panels here are bumpin'

  2. Heard your review of Shiny Days and then proceeded to watch a youtube demo clip. Wow, this is the first time i've seen a visual novel such as this. Since you've played it, could you tell me if the entirety of the game is animated like an actual anime? And is it fully voice-casted (including male)? Also do you know of any other VN/eroge company that haved used a similar style in the past?

    ..Sorry for barrage of questions, but it's because i could totally start getting into this type of eroge genre. As you never know that it could one day develop into an 'anime heavy rain' genre...or something.

    1. Yes, the game is for the most part fully animated. In other words, it's practically an interactive anime.
      It's fully voiced including all the male characters. Even some really miscellaneous characters are voiced.
      There are a handful of games just likes this one. 0verflow also released School Days (HQ) which is getting a US release soon. School Days is technically a sequel to Shiny (or Summer) Days. Cross Days is a side story for School Days and was also made by 0verflow. Another company that makes fully animated games is Jellyfish. ( All their games are fully animated and their animation is top notch. Unfortunately it takes them years to make a new game. There were also some other animated VNs in the past. All the stuff by Erogos ( mostly animated. Even older stuff is from Sogna ( as well as Scoop ( That's almost all the games and VNs that are at least mostly animated. There are probably other as well. People are currently anticipating Otome Function ( which is probably going to be the next fully animated game to come out, but it probably won't be out until late this year or next year.
      Thanks for the questions.
