Sorry for being late in regard of VNTS Review again, and I'll explain the title at PS later. As for this week, my main focus here is on Sekai announcement in which it should be very exciting for the people who like to see Sekai's big backlog of licenses, so if you've been worried on how recently Sekai's backlog being thinned out don't worry because Sekai did address your worry by adding nine new VNs with eight of those new VNs are from Feng in which as we know was bankrupted. Other than Sekai sudden backlog increase, we have Chaos Head Noah monthly update along with some other update from fan translation, so overall I can say that this week is still interesting although it's not as excited as last week in that we have Nekonyan's new projects reveal. Anyway let's see what I can write in regard of this week as well.
We have Cherry Kiss release their cousin nukige (For the reminder the localized title is My Married Cousin's Need for Seed), in which I can only say good for anyone else who've been waiting for it so go get the nukige and have fun. Speaking of nukige, turned out that Mangagamer also have one announcement of it, and the nukige in question is from Waffle with the localized title Horny Elves and a Moral Orcs in that it'll depict on some horny elves like to sated their lust to a honorable orc who was spared by the Goddess in the past. Well nice to see that Waffle still willing to ask Mangagamer in regard of localized their VNs I suppose, and the nukige itself is based on a 4-koma manga. Still no progress on this yet so we don't know whether it's one of two Mangagamer's secret project or not, but at least I know that Doddler was involved with this.
From fan translation we have 21,886 lines of Pure x Connect were translated along with 13,441 lines of it were edited, 68.3% lines of original Summer Pockets was reworked, and Eustia was at 86.69% TLC-ed with Licia's chapter was at 46.69% TLC-ed and side stories was past three quarter (78.70%) TLC-ed. For Chaos Head Noah, we have common route was past three quarter (76.96%) translated along with overall of it was at 83.50% translated. Other than the translation, this time we have new updates to pay attention on in which it's TLC and editing in that they'll do those two as the next progress after Chaos Head Noah was fully translated. For the info, there's already some update in both of TLC and editing with the progress was at 5.40% and 1.84% respectively. There's also some update from Sol Press, in that we have Nukitashi was fully edited and currently they've working on QA build so good luck to them in regard of that. Lastly we have Fruitbat already decided the exact release date for MAMIYA, and it'll be at 30th later.
Before going with their new announcements from Feng, let me list some of the updates that Sekai have here. For the updates we have Daybreak engine work was halfway done (Finally a progress after long time), Eternal Heart was fully translated, Sanarara R was fully edited, Kanojo no Seiikii was fully translated and edited, and Rewrite+ was at three quarter translated along with past halfway (55%) edited. We also have Nekopara Catboy Paradise in which instead of usual cute catgirl this time we have handsome catboy, and as such it should be obvious that it'll be otome version of Nekopara (Apparently it'll be all age seeing that I see Kaito Ishikawa did use his real name instead of the alias for the cast). Sekai did plan the release it at summer later, and currently they already fully translated and edited the VN so currently Sekai wait for the build of Nekopara otome here. What I can say is that at least Nekopara did try their best to satisfy their female customer, and that the artist here is Dies Irae artist instead of Sayori (She took the producer role here).
For Feng announcements, two of those are Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi and it's fandisc with the premise that the MC moved to the countryside for the sake of his little brother who has poor health. There's also Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka in which it's about the MC who have a quarrel with his fiancee back when the latter transferred to the MC school (Note that both of Kakaru Hashi and Akaneiro also got anime adaptations). After Kanojo no Seiiki, turned out that Sekai also licensed the rest of two Seiiki VNs (Gakkou and Imouto) as well. Another license is Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade in which it has the setting in the seaside village that has yearly mermaid festival, another one is about the MC who somehow manage to date his friend who turned out to be female, and lastly we have Feng's last VN Yume to Iro de Dekiteiru in that it's about the MC and the heroines formed a club that was supposed to give romance advice to the other students even though they're not experienced in that field. Well I guess it's good that Sekai licensed a number of VNs, although I'm not sure if they can work on this at reasonable pace if we look at their past progresses. Still good luck to them in regard of working on those new announcements.
That's all for what I can say in regard of this week VNTS Review, and see you next week.
PS - For the title, since we have MAMIYA release date announcement along with Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi announcement by Sekai, I decided to just parodied the English title for the latter (A Bridge to the Starry Skies) by changing 'Starry Skies' with 'World's End' from MAMIYA full title (MAMIYA - A Shared Illusion of the World's End) so we have 'A Bridge to the World's End' as this week VNTS Review.
