Because of Flowers Autumn release and that I already said that I'll combined Saga Planets season VNs with 'Flowers', we have 'Kisaragi Gold Flowers' as this week VNTS Review and obviously I parodied Kisaragi Gold Star in that it represent autumn. For a bit more translation note, we can also translate Kisaragi as 'like the moon' with one of the kanji writing have 'moon' kanji. For on how it have the connection with autumn, it's from Japanese culture in that one of their autumn tradition is moon viewing. While at first I didn't know if Niijima Yuu think about that when he made Kisaragi Gold Star title, after see the CG that depict the group in Kisaragi did moon viewing on rooftop I can say that he think about the moon connection with autumn when he made the title. Anyway as for this week other than Flowers Autumn release, we also have both of Nekonyan and Mangagamer gave us a number of updates. There's also fan translation updates as well, so overall I can say that this week is quite active. Let's see what I can write for this week as well.
We have Sol Press did update that currently they have Sakura Celebration was at 83% edited, and what I can say is that on how much their progress on Irotoridori in regard of the engine works recently. In any case I just hope that Sol Press will have smooth release on Irotoridori, which to say might be easier said than done considering that Bokuten was banned (Granted that turned out the file still have some 18+ CG, but still quite enough for a wake up call). Other than that, there's Eden's Ritter release in that it's the first release from Shira VN when it come to nukige (And a dark one at that). What I can say is that if you like dark nukige with big breast heroines (Same developer as Funbag for the info), go get the VN and have fun. For Photonmelodies (Another Muv Luv fandisc after Photonflowers), I guess I can say that you can get it if you want to see more Muv Luv and more importantly want to see the epilogue of Alternative from Altered Fable so have fun with that.
Sekai did delayed Rewrite+ release from November 2020 to January 2021, which to say not surprising at all. Although if the delay mean that Sekai would willing to hasten their interesting VNs releases such as Harukuru, Nine Episode 3, and Daybreak then I don't mind the delay lol. That said it mean more waiting for Rewrite fans, so hopefully they'll be able to get around the delay somehow (I still think that Rewrite+ release is redundant one though). From Mangagamer, we have updates from their secret projects in that the 4th was both fully translated and edited, the 6th was at 64% translated along with 62% edited, the 7th was fully translated along with 88% edited, and the 3rd was currently in testing with both of translation and editing progress are finished. For other updates, we have Sona-Nyl Refrain was past three quarter (76%) translated, Sukehime was in testing, Rance 02 was finished the testing, and Musicus was fully translated and edited with image editing for that was currently ongoing.
From fan translation we have Eustia was at 92.98% translated with side routes was past halfway (54.43%) translated, 15,267 lines of Pure x Connect are translated along with 8,289 lines are edited, Loverable was at 89.5% edited, Harugi was at 58% traslated with Branch route was at 42% translated, and Ginharu overall was at 65.84% translated with Yuzuki's route was at 21.46% translated. We also have Alka manage to translated more than halfway (51.5%) of Reflection Blue with Shizuku's route was fully translated and Miki's route was at 67.1% translated, although it didn't mean that they'll directly release the patch as soon as it finished though (ie no August or September release) because Alka still need to get through several process before releasing Reflection Blue patch. Lastly we have Alka did inform that they'll release Miagete FD patch at first weeks of August, so let's see if they can release it at this month later.
While I did expect that Nekonyan will release Hello Lady next at this year, turned out that IxShe Tell is more likely to be Nekonyan's next release because currently it's at 70% in QC while Hello Lady was at halfway in QC (By the way IxShe Tell was already fully translated and edited). There's also the fact that Hello Lady engine was currently being worked on by the developer, so perhaps we must wait for a while before the release. For the rest of Nekonyan's update, we have both of their secret project and Melty Moment was at 35% translated, Aokana Extra 1 was at 90% translated along with halfway edited, Kirikoi was at 85% translated along with 45% edited, and lastly we have Riddle Joker was at 90% for both of translation and editing progress along with 35% in QC.
As for Flowers Autumn, the premise is still in regard of GL story with the MC for this time is Yuzuhira who about to be graduated from Saint Angrecaum school and that she still have some regret even after she handing her position as student president council to Suoh (Flowers Spring MC). In order to resolve the regret, Yuzuriha decided to ask some help from her best friend since childhood Nerine who may or may not become her lover in the future. With this it mean that we already have three quarter of Flowers tetralogy being translated, and looks like it'll be right that JAST took two years to release each part of the tetralogy. While granted that we still didn't know when exactly JAST will announce Flowers Winter, it should be obvious that JAST will take the license of if they want a complete tetralogy barring some special circumstances. In any case if you want to see more Flowers, you can get it from either JAST store or Steam and have fun. Oh and even though this is the third part of the tetralogy, the VN itself is still complete enough so you can play it right now if you worry about whether you should wait for Flowers Winter or not.
That's all for this week VNTS Review, and see you next week.
