Since we finally had Saku Saku release along with the cute love fairy Tina at the image header, I decided to reuse 'Sakura Cupid' title here because we had love fairy and besides I think Tina (The aftermentioned love fairy) was quite fitting to be called cupid from what I said at first Sakura Cupid review. As for 2, it was to mimic the Winged Cloud who also released Sakura Beach 2 as the sequel of Sakura Beach. Speaking of Winged Cloud, apparently they released Sakura Gamer at Steam after they did the Patreon - you might check that up if you interested although I'm not quite interested though.
Welcome to this week VNTS Review in which this week was quite lacking to tell the truth, because Mangagamer already did their updates at last week. That said, of course there's always some update to talk about here and most importantly we had quite a big release in form of Saku Saku, which had a bit of history with mine here. Let's see what we had for this week.
For this week from fan translation, we had Eustia at 21.41% translated along with 14.62% TLC-ed - by the way Fione's arc was past halfway translated, Musumaker was at 41.1% translated, Norturnal Illusion Renewal was at 19.2% for the second pass editing, and Pure Pure Chapter 2 was fully translated - though that said it was apparently rough translation and right now it was also 30% proofread for Chapter 2, and then after Chapter 2 was finish the proofread the team will do the testing before finally released Chapter 2 patch (By the way, for the overall translation it was at 39.81% translated). For Loverable was reaching 90% mark translated (90.29% with Kaho's route was at 35.74% translated) along with 58.11% TLC-ed, 22.39% edited, and 17.62% QC-ed. For Tsukiyori here, finally there's some editing progress with currently it was at 10.3% edited along with 20.4% translated. For Tsujidou, yes Tsurezure work at Maki's route right now and it was at 10.14% translated as of now, and for overall it was past halfway (52.1%) translated.
From Sekai here, it was only one big release in regard of the update. Before that in regard of their policy of not doing usual updates l would say that make the updates from them very vague, and it would be bad to anyone else who want to track their favorite VN project. Although seeing that they usually lacking if we talk about their updates, I guess it wouldn't matter much to me here especially if I considering that there were many projects that was already at 100% translated from Sekai and yet it's still not ready for the release yet e.g Maitetsu and Tenshin Ranman.
As for Sekai's release, it was Saku Saku which was released back at Monday and it was quite surprising that they ready for the release after their bad planning that was caused the delay back at August, because back then they still not ready yet. Anyway, what done is done and have fun playing Saku Saku there, and if I give some advice it would be don't expect much from the VN because I'd heard that many people were dissapointed with that although of course there should be some good points in regard of Saku Saku. Forget to say that the premise was quite unusual with love fairy thing.
Oh, for more trivia Saku Saku was started as fan translation by Akerou back at 2014 as a mean to practicing his translation skill before translating Irotoridori, and actually it was already finished the translation back at 2016 only to see that the release was still uncertain because apparently there's some 'polishing work' left iirc. Then turned out that there's Sekai who already made a deal with Akerou (And Shinku TL) to officially released Saku Saku ie the 'polishing work' was meant as finalize the deal with Sekai, and therefore delayed the release. Oh, I was shocked the moment I'd heard Saku Saku opening at Sekai AX 2016 stream so much that I closed the windows, and it was quite a while before I managed to finally calmed down in regard of the announcement.
I think that's all for this week, and see you next week.
