Silver Colored Faraway Bonus Track - Kanon at the Faraway Future



Visual Novel Translation Status (23/06/2024)

Welcome to this week VNTS Review. For the title, since we have Kanon release I may as well make the parody of the last episode of Kanon 2006, Kanon at the End of the Dream (Also the title drop), with I decided to reuse 'Silver Colored Faraway' one more time even though Yuzuki's patch of Ginharu is already released for two months, hence the 'Bonus Track' part in the album. Anyway as for this week once again we have quite a number of new releases and announcements, although my interest on this week is toward the successful Kickstarter for Venus Blood Ragnarok. That aside, in case you're not into tentacle rape, then Kanon sudden release may be more interesting to you. Overall, this week is yet another below average one, and let's see what I can write about it.

Sekai released the second Kurikuri Click VN, and this time the single heroine is the warrior who wore bikini armor. Honestly no much to say other than turned out Kurikuri Click is the nukige trilogy with all of the three heroines are voiced by a single gravure model, so go get the VN if you like very short nukige voiced by a gravure model. Speaking of nukige, Cherry Kiss just announced they have yet another nukige release in July 12th later, and said nukige is localized as Sexcalibur. The premise of the VN is the MC who has his hometown destroyed by a very strong female knights, and then he got the magic sword that transfer his desire into power with the MC make good use of his power into have sex with the female knights. Frontwing did reveal they have another license, and said license is the third Milk Factory VN Oppai Succubus with them planned the release sometimes in this year, which to say is definitely better compared to what they did with Sharin.

This week we have ChuSingura is at 47.37% translated, Taima Seiko Alice is at 65% translated, Majikoi A Plus Disk is at 5.12% translated, and Akagoei 3 is at 79.19% edited along with 15.56% in QA. We also have 12Riven translation project has been ongoing for a while, and turned out it's been at halfway translated by a new group. For the info, 12Riven is the VN created by Uchikoshi as his attempt to make another Infinity trilogy which ended up failed, and then Uchikoshi decided to make 999 which became his successful franchise. Mages did plan to have their upcoming VN, Iwakura Aria, in English. From what I see, it has quite unique art like in Fata Morgana and apparently the story will depict the complex relationship between women in 1966 or something like that.

Once again we have Visual Art just released Kanon very suddenly back on last Thursday. I'm sure everyone else already know the story, but I may as well tell it again. In Kanon, we have Yuuichi came back to his aunt house after seven years and somehow he has amnesia on the event from seven years ago. Kanon here is very influential VN back in 1999 as KEY very first VN, so in theory this should be very big release despite there's no graphic remake like One. That said since we already have the translation patch of it back in 2009 along with said patch translate the sex scene which most people didn't mind to have it removed, I can only say this is redundant release. Still, feel free to get Kanon from Steam if you want to play the VN thanks to its historical status, and have fun. Lastly we have Venus Blood Ragnarok Kickstarter ended as another successful Kickstarter from Ninetail, with the fund gathered is almost three times of the initial goal at almost 38.7 million yen.

That's all for what I can write in regard of this week, and see you next week.

PS - For more elaboration on the title, in regard of 'Faraway Future' it's the combination of Hoshiori and Ginharu with both title has the words which exactly mean that ('Future' from Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai (Mirai mean Future) and 'Faraway' is obvious enough (Haruka mean Faraway, and the full title of Ginharu is Gin'iro Haruka)), which I figure is quite fitting to combined both seeing both Hoshiori and Ginharu has same concept (Charage with the lengthy after stories). Once again Kanon is obviously the title drop from Kanon VN, but in case you need explanation in regard of musical term it's a contrapuntal (counterpoint-based) compositional technique that employs a melody with one or more imitations of the melody played after a given duration.
