JAST Blue has released the first in a series of BL visual novels they announced earlier this year. Sweet Pool follows Sakiyama Youji who hopes his life is getting back to normal after recovering from a serious illness. Though this will not be the case, since returning to school strange symptoms are occurring constantly. He is also noticed by two students, the stoic Tetsuo and the notorious troublemaker Zenya. These two have taken a great interest in him. What is causing the symptoms? Why are these two interested in him all the sudden? Time will tell.

The game is out on both JAST USA’s Store and on Steam. The game will set you back $19.99 on JAST’s Store this includes a 20% discount. On Steam the game will set you back $15.99, but you will need the 18+ DLC patch from JAST’s Store priced at $4.99 to get the 18+ content for the Steam version.

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
