This is definitely not the review from Persona 11, because ATLUS just recently released Persona 5 in Japan. To be exact, this title was reflected to 11eyes and I think I'd found many similarities to Persona series (At least to 3 and 4) after playing this for a while. With that, let's get to the main business there (VNTS Review duh).
Okay, this week there's definitely surprise from fan translation segment. Namely the release of 11eyes Complete translation patch and turn out that 11eyes was Denwalts secret project. To tell the truth, I kind of doubt his project earlier because his portfolio was only Koi Iro and cancelled AliveZ which both of those were quite mediocre according to VNDB. But this time he manage to surprised us with the release of 11eyes once again, although he was try to slip some hint though back at Eroge Games forum (The project was one of 'cursed' project). Anyway, I think I'll try to tell the story about 11 eyes later.
As for my comment for other three releases, first of all let me state that once again I'd didn't find that both of Grisaia and Majikoi side story was the one that I'd looking forward the most (Feel free to get that though if you was either of Grisaia or Majikoi fan (And perhaps both as well). Although for Majikoi I'd find out that the robot girl was quite good looking though. For Melody (Grisaia side story), the premise looks like Yuuji will do some sort of escort mission to some important man daughter. And for another release, the premise was quite ridiculous once again, but then again it could be interest some people who interested in kyonyuu Japanese god forming an idol group. Keep in mind that's only my current impression in regard of MoeNovel's release so it could be change in the future. Oh, by the way there's some post from ANN which mistakenly said that MoeNovel created If My Heart Had Wings (MoeNovel's role was only as publisher, while the mentioned game was created by the main company Pulltop).
This week for Sekai was mostly from their usual update, although back at their tracker apparently there's some error in regard of Bokukotsu which for the progress it was back at 0% (The real progress for Bokukotsu was at 21.71% translated according to VNTS). For the usual updates here, Chrono Clock was at 71.25% translated, Maitetsu was at 78.8% translated, and Tensin Ranman was at 82.07% translated. For one more news, Wagahigh was attempted to get the Greenlight at Steam and Sekai was planning to release this at early 2017. That's all for Sekai Project roundup here.
For Other section here, there's some big Kickstarter happening but first of all let's do some roundup here from few updates. There's two releases from this section (LoveKami and Melody) and I'd already commented on those two. As for other update, if you interested to get Miniature Garden officially, you could also try Mangagamer there because they also add pre-order for that according to their blog post (It'll be released at March 2nd by the way). Here's Mangagamer page in case some of you want proof. Oh, and also Frontwing confirmed that they also working for Island translation right now (By the way, the writer for Island was also the writer for Himawari).
The big news for this section was obviously Dies Irae Kickstarter was begin. Just like Prefundia said, the goal was indeed at 160,000. And right now they managed to gathering the fund at almost 72,000 (71,987 for more detail currently) with 26 days left before the Kickstarter end. For now I could only said that this is definitely more succesful compared to Root Double kickstarter of course at least if we compared it from the first day (Root Double was only managed gather around 20,000 iirc while Dies Irae managed to gather more than 50,000 at the first day). Let's just wait and see here, and I think this Kickstarter could be successful although there's could be something unexpected happen at the future.
In Fan Translation segment, it had definitely very surprising release. But first let me to do some roundup here. For the roundup of this week, we had Majokoi at 60.7% translated and 52% edited; Aokana Common Route was at 38% translated; Tsui Yuri was at halfway retranslated and fully edited for the first pass; Loverable was at 38.57% translated, 9.86% edited, and 69.61% image edited; and Sukiuso was at 40.4% translated. Outside of the usual progress, there's also sad news in regard of Tsuki Yori translation in which the project was put on hold because of the translator real life issue. Hope the best for the translator there in real life.
For the last but DEFINITELY not the least, there's 11eyes release. For a little history there's old translation project back at around 2011 with the goal to translate 11eyes. Also according to some old post this is one of most requested VN to Amaterasu Translation to be translated (It was some kind of poll). Of course now that Denwalts released 11eyes it means that the old group translator was to busy to translate so much that the project was stalled (And tgat's after the group lost previous translator). Well, what I knew for now is that we could finally play 11eyes in English. Have fun for playing 11eyes for reader out there.
Thst's all for this week, and see you next week.
