Top 10 Hentai Visual Novels [Best Recommendations]

There are many genres and types of video of videogames, each with its own perks and disadvantages, but on this occasion, we thought of collecting and showcasing our best recommendations for a specific type: visual novels. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, visual novels are basically a book with images and animated characters, sometimes even featuring RPG-like mechanics. Still, the greatest weapon of a good VN is its branching story, often with a bunch of different paths and endings based on your choices. Hentai Visual novels go even further, coupling any of the good points of the game in question with delicious adult content, enhancing their appeal.

In this opportunity, we present you a list of our Top 10 Hentai Visual Novels!

10. Ookami Shoujo to Issho

  • System: PC
  • Publisher: seismic
  • Developer: seismic
  • Release Dates: June 2016

This game is a simple, short novel focused on your interactions with Liru, a blond wolf girl you rescued and brought to your house. In a few words, it’s a “wolf-eared waifu simulator,” and who wouldn’t like to be in this situation? The sexy Liru receiving you and soon as you get home, and tenderly pampering you with food, affection and sexual teasing is the true [insert nationality] dream!

It does not have much of a story, and most of the gameplay consists of exchanging a few words with Liru and getting involved in the raunchy situations your choices bring forward, however, it’s quite enjoyable and a good introduction to the genre. Also, the 3D rendering of the sexy wolf-girl is absolutely great and allows you to enjoy this work to the max! For research purposes, of course.


9. Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius

  • System: PC
  • Publisher: Love in Space, Sekai Project
  • Developer: Love in Space
  • Release Dates: June 2014

The recently graduated Captain Kayto Shields has to maneuver his way to survival, as his home planet is utterly obliterated by an evil interplanetary empire with aspirations of ending all known life. Armed only with his recently christened ship, the Sunrider, and his snarky but gold-hearted First official, Kayto’s new goal is getting new allies through the starry seas and building a crew strong enough to save his planet and bring hope and peace to the galaxy.

Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius is a turn-based RPG space opera, which means that besides making choices on your path through your grand quest, you must also do your best to strategically win your battles. In other words, you take an active role, with all other aspects, especially hentai scenes, taking a backseat. Unfortunately—or fortunately, depending on your vision—the gameplay is harsh, as it requires almost legendary min-maxing skills, as choosing the wrong upgrade for your ship and mechas at the wrong point of the story can make it impossible to finish the game. If you like a good challenge, Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius is godsent, and you can treat yourself to some hentai scenes to celebrate your skills.


8. Zettai Saikyou ☆ Oppai Sensou!! ~Kyonyuu Oukoku vs Hinnyuu Oukoku~ (Ultimate ☆ Boob Wars!! ~Big Breasts vs Flat Chests~)

  • System: PC, Android
  • Publisher: MangaGamer
  • Developer: softhouse-seal GRANDEE
  • Release Dates: June 2016

There’s a debate involving the size of boobs and butts, and humanity has yet to decide what is better; some like them big, while others say ‘flat is justice.’ Haruto, our protagonist, is a true man of culture and recognizes that the perfect waifu is a sum of characteristics, loving all sizes with fairness. And so the story starts, as Haruto receives a revelation from the Breasts God informing him that he is destined to save the world.

This a very sex-focused visual novel, so don’t come expecting great character development. In fact, we don’t care about it as there is a bunch of good hentai scenes for us to enjoy. And the cherry on top? Half of them are wonderfully animated! Also, their dialogue is silliness incarnated and jokes are very abundant, so you will be spending your time enjoying this perfect combination between laughing your ass off and raw lust.


7. Eroge! ~H mo Game mo Kaihatsu Zanmai~ (Eroge! ~Sex and Games Make Sexy Games~)

  • System: PC
  • Publisher: MangaGamer
  • Developer: Clock Up team Anise
  • Release Dates: September 2013

We are in a hentai list, so of course, sex will obviously be a thing in these games. This one focuses on the life of Tomoya Mochizuki, who desperately tries to find a new job so he can leave the convenience store he works in. Tomoya is a big fan of eroge, and he dreams of producing one, but he does not possess any of the skills involved in the creation of one… and that’s a problem when you need the money.

Fortunately, his luck soon changes and he finally lands himself a job in a game studio that happens to only hire girls, but the games developed by them are fairly lacking in quality because the studio members lack the experience to actually understand sex. Tomoya’s role? Teach the girls everything about sex!


6. NEKOPARA Vol. 1

Zettai-Saikyou-Oppai-Sensou-Kyonyuu-Oukoku-vs-Hinnyuu-Oukoku-2 Top 10 Hentai Visual Novels [Best Recommendations]

  • System: PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch
  • Publisher: Sekai Project
  • Developer: Neko WORKs
  • Release Dates: November 2014

Kashou Minazuki opens a patisserie, looking for his own independence and establishing his own restaurant as a proud member of an important family line of confection makers. What he did not expect was to share the patisserie with Chocola and Vanilla, two catgirls who both fervently wish to help him in his endeavor. And so it begins, the engaging travel of the two neko-girls and their beloved master to establish a great business and become the patisserie kings!

As one of the most successful and popular novels in the western world, some may wonder, what does this work have? Well, NEKOPARA Vol. 1’s plot is strictly linear; you basically read and hear the characters, feasting your eyes with the absolutely mind-blowing animation and art. If you enjoy wholesome stories, cute girls with cat features, you may become a full-blown fanatic just from this game.


5. Euphoria

  • System: PC, Android
  • Publisher: MangaGamer
  • Developer: Clock Up
  • Release Dates: November 2015

Keisuke Takatou one day wakes up in a white room, surrounded by 6 females who are familiar to him: 4 students of the same academy, his English teacher, and his childhood friend. The situation is already strange enough before a mysterious voice announces “the game is starting,” and by game, you can very much imagine the SAW kind of games, with a special focus on hardcore sex and torture. To summarize it, they are in some kind of dungeon with multiple rooms, and the only way to get out of there alive is to follow the rules and their instincts.

In Euphoria, sex is of course abundant, but the plot is not left behind, as you grow enraptured with the character development and progression of the story—and you will probably question the morality of hardcore fetishes, too. Does having those urges makes you a bad person? Such is the question Euphoria raises, and trying to unravel the answers is delightful as sinfully pleasurable.


4. Making*Lovers

  • System: PC
  • Publisher: Smee
  • Developer: NekoNyan
  • Release Dates: April 2020

Dreaming of a fortuitous encounter is something that commonly happens to the female lead on anime... or actually, fiction in general. In this case, instead of having a girl imagining her Prince Charming coming down to sweep her off her feet, we have a reserved role; the male protagonist—the one we play as—is a firm believer of love at first sight, and he will not settle with anything else, much to the chagrin of anyone who knows he has spent so many years without a girlfriend, waiting for the arrival of a waifu that shakes his world. Classic.

This is a diabetes-inducing-sweet adult love novel, with each heroine being absolutely adorable, and their routes a journey filled with laughter and tenderness. If you enjoy romance, great character designs, and moe overall, playing Making*Lovers” will be an experience you will surely remember for life!


3. Eiyuu*Senki

  • System: PC, PlayStation 3
  • Publisher: FruitBat Factory, JAST USA
  • Developer: Tenco
  • Release Dates: November 2015

In a fantasy world where historic and mythological personages are running around, the nations are at war, with each using their capable generals to bring an edge to battle. In the small country of Yamatai, which is an old name for Japan, Himiko is barely struggling to survive in her fight to unify her country, when suddenly, a strange light bearing our amnesiac protagonist arrives from the sky. Soon after, their fates are tied as they promise to conquer the world together for a better tomorrow.

Eiyuu*Senki is a turn-based strategy game using a grid system, and you will spend your time playing it doing two things: goofily smiling as you slowly take over the world, and enjoying the looks of each of the waifus to your army. We are talking about 70+ sexy heroines! Oh, and the story is exceptionally written from start to finish. What more can a man ask for?


2. Sabbat of the Witch

  • System: PC
  • Publisher: NekoNyan
  • Developer: YuzuSoft
  • Release Dates: October 2018

Picture yourself having the power to experience other people’s emotions through their five senses. Sounds weird... but acceptable and tempting, right? Until you find your classmate, Nene Ayachi, masturbating with the school library’s furniture. Such is the case for our protagonist, who finds out that Nene has a secret of her own, experiencing seemingly random bouts of intense pleasure. And when friendship blooms between the two, Shuuji also discovers the existence of witches, and his whole world comes tumbling down.

This is game is all about exploring the perspective of Shuuji and his interactions with the heroines. Each route is very romantic, and the feelings they have—perhaps due to his way of perceiving emotions—really gets you, almost making you think you have a soul down there. Moreover, the addition of a meaty true route and the individual songs for the heroines show the studio’s investment in making you fall hard for these lovable girls.


1. Katawa Shoujo

  • System: PC, Android
  • Publisher: Four Leaf Studios, Kawasoft
  • Developer: Four Leaf Studios
  • Release Dates: January 2012

Hisao is a normal high school student that gets a love letter and decides, obviously, to assist the summon. Unfortunately, that’s when normality comes crashing down, because, as the girl is fervently declaring her love, he feels his body heating up and his heart fails. Cock-blocked by that old blood pump, talk about irony, huh?
In the hospital, they tell him he is suffering from arrhythmia, a chronic heart disease that randomly causes his heart’s pulsations to become erratic, and for that reason, his worried parents send him to a school for physically disabled students. Feeling lost and miserable because his love life is a mess at such a young age, Hisao quickly finds companionship and a reason to look forward.

Katawa Shoujo is the dream, the crystallization of the hopes of many otaku boys around the globe. This wonderful piece has a stunning, heart-wrenching story, god-tier heroines, and out of this world music… and it’s made by a small group of users of the 4-chan forum, your everyday otaku! Even without voice acting, it will always be one of the best visual novels ever crafted.


Final Thoughts

Maybe you enjoyed a lower-ranked work more than a higher-ranked one, and that’s totally fine; perhaps, the beautiful art of an entry moved you, or the immersing RPG mechanics of another. Regardless of what captivated you, we hope that we managed, even if only by a fraction, to properly convey the glory of visual novels.
A game that’s more than a game. A text novel that’s more than a text novel. Visual novels are an avant-garde genre that not many dare to explore, and also the perfect place to combine gameplay, amazing stories, and steamy hot scenes involving beautiful anime girls!
