Shingakkou -Noli me tangere-
Michael and Gabriel Levi are twins who are enrolled in a seminary. On the eve of their Christmas holidays, the twins return home eager to see their family after the absence, only to find them dead and their home in flames. As if things couldn't get any more strange, there's a bizarre mark on the wall painted in their father's blood, of an inverted cross with a snake wrapped around it. It's the mark of a secret society in their very own school - a secret society which worships the devil.

Furious that God could let something so callous occur on a holy day, Michael turns his back on the figure he so dearly worshiped beforehand and vows to get his revenge while investigating the cult that had something to do with the destruction of his family.

User Reviews
Shingakkou is one of the best visual novels I read and also my favorite. I really wanted to find another that packs such a powerful punch. It was pure and cute when it was supposed to be pure and cute and scary when it was supposed to be scary. Despite the anti-religious feel of the beginning and the good amount of horror parts few VNs had such a beautiful message and emotional impact in the end.
The romance progresses in a confortable pace and it doesn't use the bad BL clichs we frequently see. The darker themes in the character's route are treated with the deserved seriousness. BL titles are a bit niche I know but I can't recommend this game enough if you like a proactive main character horror and supernatural brainwashing in general.
