The Twilight Saga: Restless Dawn Review



Visual Novel Translation Status (30/06/2024)

Welcome to this week VNTS Review, and because we have Tsukihime Remake release with it has vampire I may as well made another parody of the famous franchise with the vampire, The Twilight Saga. As for the 'Restless Dawn', it's because we have Shiravune announced Clock Up VN with the English title 'The Restless Sleep and the Lone Wolf', so I made the parody of Twilight's last part, Breaking Dawn, by changing 'Breaking' into 'Restless', so we have 'The Twilight Saga: Restless Dawn' as the title. As for this week, there's a bunch of releases with the most awaited Tsukihime Remake release, so in theory this should be the exciting week, although to me there's no particular interesting releases. Other than Tsukihime Remake release, we also have Shiravune being active after almost a month didn't show much activities. Overall, this week ended up being an average one to me, and let's see what I can write in regard of it.

Visual Arts released Switch only Planetarian Snow Globe, and I can only say it's redundant release since we already have PC version of it available in English. Speaking of redundant, Aniplex released Tsukihime Remake, which admittedly it's the biggest release for this week seeing it's the remake of Type-Moon very first VN with Nasu wrote many new stories into the remake, and the graphic along with the good animation of the opening video courtesy of ufotable certainly didn't hut. That said, the reason on why it's redundant is not only we already have it in English for a year, but also it's because Aniplex just release it for Switch (And PS4) while the fan patch is only available for Switch version. I know Valve would like to take their time to reviewing Tsukihime Remake before finally approving it, but it's still too bad there's no more info in regard of PC version from Aniplex yet. In the end, I can only say that good for anyone who only has PS4 and been waiting for the release.

Aksys released Radiant Tale fandisc, and as expected they release it only for Switch users. Speaking of otome VN, PQube revealed they about to localized Bustafellows 2 which if I remember it'll be continuing from the prequel true route or something like that. It's also worth to mention that unlike Aksys PQube plan to have the Steam version of it as well, so good for otome fans who only have PC. Oh yes, they also mention it'll be released sometimes in 2025. Speaking of upcoming release, Sekai planned to release Nekonin exHeart Spin on 15th later, so feel free to note the date if you've been waiting for it. Nekonyan just released Aoi Tori Steam version two days earlier than the planned date, on the last June 26th, so you can now get Aoi Tori on Steam which is good for Nekonyan after their initial build of it was rejected while Purple Software did put some pressure Nekonyan to release it in last April.

For this week fan translation, we have Chusingura is at 47.86% translated with Chapter 2 is now fully translated with the remaining work (Editing, TLC, QA) being worked on, Taima Seiko Alice is at 70% translated, Karenai Saku is at halfway translated, Majikoi A Plus Disk is at 9.68% translated, Akagoei 3 is at 15.79% edited along with 15.96% in QA, and Ushieta is at 82.5% translated with Yui 1 route is at 70.1% translated. We also have a fan released Tenshi no Oshigoto translation patch, with the VN is basically the fan fiction from the fan group who like to write their version of Shiri's route ending from Kanon. While the release should be good for Shiori's fans, I'm more interested with the fan group who turned out to be Alcot's predecessor before they're established the company in 2004, so in a way it's one of Alcot's very first VN before they develop several more VNs for across 20 years with their last VN is recently crowdfunded (And upcoming) Clover Memory's.

This week we have Shiravune being active again after seemingly calmed down for almost a month. First of all they decided to delay Shukusei no Girlfriend 2 release date to at the latest September 30th, although in exchange they also announced the last game of the trilogy so we may have simultaneous release at the same date later. They also released two nukige at the same date, Nyonin Island and Real Eroge Situation 2. The former is about the former black company employee who somehow tasked to manage an island where there are no other male alive so the MC has the bad luck living with the family of the three female who has very big breast, while the latter has the MC live in the very realistic depiction of living in eroge with one particular realistic situation is the MC popular classmate (Female) turned out like to masturbate to the MC's fetish diary (Another thing to note it has nice graphic). Go get either nukige (Or maybe both) if you've been waiting for it, and have fun.

Last but not the least, we have Shiravune announced the aforementioned The Restless Sheep and the Lone Wolf (Or if we prefer Japanese title it's Nemurenu Hitsuji to Kodoku Ookami), which as we know is another VN by Clock Up so obviously expecting some disturbing sex scenes is a must. That said, from what I hear apparently the sex scenes are not as disturbing as Maggot Bait or euphoria, although those may still be quite disturbing. For the premise, we have an insomniac assassin who must kill in order to have good sleep meeting a particular woman in one of his mission. Said woman turned out held many secrets, and she managed to bring the good sleep to the assassin. By the way, it somehow slipped into Steam, which make this VN become historical for being the Clock Up VN available on Steam even with Shiravune understandably removed most of the contents. Oh yes, Shiravune also announce the fandisc as well, although I chose to just talked about the main game.

That's all for what I can write in regard of this week, and for the next week I'll also comment on the possible AX announcements. See you next week.
