I can see where you’re coming from. Having more than one heroine share the status of the MC's blood-related sister would reduce the specialness of that trait. For a more serious romance plot, having only one real sister heroine would definitely be ideal though two would still be a tolerable amount for me, but adding too many into the series would make it seem common and pretty much ruin the sense of immorality. (Plus, there'd be no one true heroine for me to root for)
Yup, me saying it weren't as good as Yosuga no Sora was kinda an understatement.
The routes were mostly unsatisfying being quite lacking in the romance department (Ironically, the most entertaining route was Sumeragi who was neither his real or step sister.) And it really didn't deliver so much of that forbidden/taboo atmosphere we were hoping for. Above all, this VN contains a lot of inconsistencies. I noticed a few during Miyuki’s route and it gets too obvious in the true route which looked like it had a better development than the other three up till half of the way. From then on it was just rushed and crammed with a lot of stuff left unexplained at the last minute. Not to mention the protagonist is a complete moron whose lack of common sense is out of this world.
I suppose that one month delay wasn't enough for the producers eh? There had better be improvements in their upcoming title “Berry’s” or else.
Hmm, so it's confirmed...I'd better check the PSP version as well to make sure.
As for recommendations concerned, so far I've yet to come across anything I enjoyed as much as Yosuga or Shinsemia, though right now I'm having hopes for are “Monobeno” and “Natsuzora no Perseus”.

Sorry for the late reply. Been caught up in some other stuff at the moment.
I've finished downloaded the fandisk. Gotta hurry and get them as soon as possible because hosting sites are getting taken down faster nowadays.
I'm really looking forward to see the daily lives of the Minagami siblings again, though I won't be playing it yet. I'm not really in the mood to start any new VNs at the moment with my worrisome senior research coming up. You go ahead and play it first I'm sure Applique won't fail to disappoint.
Let me guess, was it the ones containing both MetA and Mayuki in them (if not then tell me)? Because that's one of the parts that bothered me about the game. I'm sure you could already tell from that and I'm afraid I saw it coming the moment I looked at the walk-through but...
And there was not enough romance in the other sister's route. Most of it being focused on the goodwill activities in order to search for their long lost siblings, even after Miyuki confessed and they became a couple they still didn't act like one.
And about the incest, well Miyuki is pretty much the only person in the VN who's concerned about it.
But what about the rest of the people, his classmates just accept it well and the townsfolk in Miyuki's route didn't really seem to care they dated for a period of time.
The chairperson of the school who suggested they participate probably knew about it and just wanted to find the proof so she could do some project under their parents name (i forgot) and the doctor in charge Mayuki (who created MeTA as well) only said to Mayuki "You love him...don't you?"

Here is the list of all the Visual Novels containing blood related sister heroines which has been released since 2004 to 2012. It contains the date of release, the full name of the sister, VN title, Producer, and special remarks (eg. half related, needs a patch to unlock the sister or make them blood-related)
Plus upcoming ones. You might wanna take a look and see which ones seem interesting.
you probably already heard but the TnS fandisk release date has also been delayed.
The info was taken from a thread called 実妹キャラについて語れ where the Japanese VN players discuss about sister characters in VNs from their personality to confirming their blood relationship.
Man, I feel so stupid for not being able to find this wiki earlier. Otherwise I've could've obtained more potentially worthy titles before their hosting sites like Megaupload and Fileserve got taken down.
By the way, have you finished Imouto no Katachi yet? I'd like to hear your opinion about it. I'll tell you mine later but one thing I gotta say for now is that it wasn't as good as Yosuga no Sora.

Finally, Tasogare no Saki ni Noboru Ashita has a release date so it seems.
November 22, 2012.
Unfortunately it'd be near December when I'll be to busy getting ready for my senior research so you go ahead and play it before me and tell me what you think. I'll be sure to catch up by April or May next year.
LeFake | 08-31-12, 5:21 AM
Thanks for the link! I've been waiting for this day to arrive.
LeFake | 08-09-12, 8:31 AM
Sigh...You're right. I suppose Sony is gonna get rid of the incest content anyways, regardless of the effects of the Youth Ordinance bill.
Still, I can't help but get upset when even the Light Novels are having the sisters end up becoming not-blood related to the brother in a title which suggests it's going to deliver the incest.
I'm worried about the Rika manga which has just started continuing after like half a year of absence. Siscon blog says that the author never mentioned why he stopped writing and a few of the blog visitors think that there might be something going on which might affect the story.
LeFake | 08-08-12, 9:11 PM
There is going to be a PSP version? I have a bad feeling about this.
I'm sure they're gonna make a Non-blood related version of Sakuya, which I'll be really pissed as I'm still butt hurt about all the incest series making all little sisters not blood-related recently under the influence of you probably know what.
And I hope the fandisk gets released by November otherwise I won't be able to play it until after I graduate next year.

Sry for the long wait. Here's the summary of the epiloge chapter.

Chapter 4 Summary
LeFake | 07-14-12, 2:00 AM
No problem. Doing this actually helps me pick up some more unfamiliar words/kanji I might've over looked so I am gaining something out of it. There are two chapters left. A short one about the TnS cast at the festival and then an epilogue.
Just looked at the sphere site about that and I'm pretty disappointed myself, though I wonder if this has anything to do with the addition of the new character about a month or so before the initial release date (didn't have time to finish writing the story for her route I assume?). Well, I hope it's worth the wait.

Hmm, error message won't tell the reason for not working. I'll have to go ask someone about this.
For now all I can think of is temporarily disabling your antivirus. It interferes with the start up of the game. Though I'm not sure if doing so would work.

New images of of our 5th heroine and imouto candidate.
LeFake | 06-28-12, 1:01 AM
It doesn't? Now that you've mentioned it there's no way I could ignore this. I tried downloading it to see for myself, and it works just fine for me. (Didn't read much other than the opening announcement during first few minutes into it)
Was there any error message or something? If you could print screen it for me I might be able to try and find out what the problem is.
LeFake | 06-27-12, 1:47 AM
For now I'll give my short summary of the prologue.
LeFake | 06-26-12, 7:11 AM
Thanks for the update. I'm happy that the trial version is already out, though I think I'll wait for the full game in one month. (Don't wanna spoil myself too quickly)
Oh and about the Yoimachi Festa LN, I just finished this morning. But there are quite a few words/phrases I'm unfamiliar with being in non jouyou(common use) kanji so I'll have to re-read it a second time before I give you my thoughts on it.
LeFake | 06-22-12, 5:47 AM
You got that right, Satori is the girl who's always daydreaming in class about her Brother whose status whether he's dead or alive is unknown. Though her classmates who keep seeing her in that state thinks she's being lost in thought
Ah yes, Chimari. The air-head and brocon girl who's been following Yukito everywhere since childhood. Even now when he's left on a journey to find the real sister, she pursues him all the way to his location. The last sentence of her profile says how she displays her child-like possessiveness of her brother, to the extent which could be considered excessive. INB4 some jealousy and cat fight I actually don't care about step-siblings anymore, but what the heck.
The robot. MeTA, which is short for Medical Treatment and nursing Automation. Way to leave out the word nursing in the acronym. She's kind of a prankster and loves to stir up messy situations. She watches old anime a lot that she often uses lines from anime in her conversation. I sense there's gonna be a lot of reference I won't get since I don't watch old anime

Siscon blog just updated.
He says that according to the June 2012 issue of PUSH!! (eroge related magazine), the game is to conclude a 5th Main Heroine.
Suzunomiya Mayuki, voiced by none other than Sora-chan herself Natsuno Koori.
Her whole body has been paralyzed for as long as she could remember, and is stuck on a wheel chair being unable to leave the hospital.
There's a chance that this new girl could be the real Imouto. But then what of the pink haired girl (Sena Miyuki) whom was earlier thought to be the one...
Let's look at their names
Pink haired Imouto candidate: Miyuki
New 5th heroine voiced by Sora-chan: Mayuki
All 3 of them have the word "yuki" in their names, which raises an interesting point. If this new heroine were to be the real imouto, we need to look at the color of her eyes and hair.
Here's a comparison between protagonist and our pink haired candidate
So he is highly convinced that this girl is the legit sister.
But then again, according to the character relationship chart, he's a second year senior high school student which would make him around 16-17 years old. And the accident happened exactly 15 years ago which would make him an infant at that time.
How could he have remembered having a sister in the first place.
He read one of topics in the 2chan (japanese) forum regarding this VN and here are some theories made by the people there.
-The protagonist was merely hallucinating about ever having a sister.
- Maybe she's an Oneesan rather than an Imouto
but the one he finds most interesting
-BOTH of them are the protagonist's Legit Imouto.
We'll just have to wait and see.
