  1. There's definitely nothing going on behind the scenes, don't worry guys. Nor am I looking for profit whatsoever. Fact is that I've been busy lately ever since finding a new job a few months ago, and I don't like to get rushed. That being said, I can't and won't confirm when I will finish this, but I've been doing my best to make progress and finish this, while at the same time not rush to give you guys a rushed translation, so I would appreciate if people can be patient and not spread rumors or make wild speculations. Thanks for your understanding! Also, this has bee

  3. Hey, it's been a while. Now that our hacker and translator are back in action, we should be able to continue the project. And in fact, I bring good news: Proud to announce that we're releasing another partial, with Yuuki's Hscenes! https://mega.nz/file/wQYAlT6S#JOnB7tImLTwVGGAf54u4P5y2UFZE65snfwTN-2IgOB8 Also a progress update on the others: Michi: 100% translated, 25% edited. Shachi: Starting up. Patricia - 1 Scene translated and edited. On hold. (linecount pending) If everything goes well, next patch should come in a month or so, and the one aft

  4. Big thanks to everyone who helped us along the way! Scripts are now 100% edited and currently being inserted into the game. Please do buy the game if possible! It has been a long road due to time constraints and real life hurdles, but it has finally been completed. Don’t get your hopes up though, since I am the only person inserting the scripts manually as my editor (@mimosa) finally left after doing an exceptional job. Still, it may take a while for me to release it because of a stubborn personal reason. This would be my first and last visual novel project and I want it to be near perfect,

  7. I just found nice easter egg / reference in DameKoi. Do you remember a game they played in chapter 7 during the Buntarou says that he remembers this game being a VN, while Yoshinori says that he grabbed the assets of said VN and remade it. Actually, all the locations they mention and the music that is playing is from first Hermit's VN - Folklore Jam (also written by Maruto).

  9. Hey - my name's Victoria and I love visual novels. I've played a lot on Nintendo Switch and Itch.io. As a writer, I decided to create my own, which is a royal romance. It's a WIP. Anyway, I came across this forum while I was doing some VN research and decided I would join. Not sure what to add here. Maybe some VNs I like? Here's a few: Code: Realize Collar x Malice Steam Prison Andromeda Six Red Embrace: Hollywood Royal Alchemist My discord is writingmysoul#6083.

Wow lol, I tried to read 9-nine in one go, I actually played the original one with Miyako but got bored of it right after the plot twist, I then just skipped to Sora's and well I read the whole saga in a week and its really good. 9-Nine as a series is good in the sense that it doesn't have some insane character depth or central plot element, it's just that it does every standard trope really well and sometimes does it spectacularly. Most of the characters are the usual character stereotypes, without much depth to them, but I liked reading their dialogues and stories anyway since they're w

  11. VNDB Synopsis What is this project? It is my great honor and pleasure to announce my translation project for August's Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki, which I've decided to render in English as you can see in the thread title. My project is tentatively called Operation Bellflower, after a plot point within the game. I bring it to you today because August 8th is an important date within the game. Also, it’s my birthday. Yay me. This project has been in the works for a while, and I'm excited to finally share it with you. I hope to create a translation you can love for t

Lol same here mate, i've made this account when i was in highschool, now i'm in college, and boy my hype and hope for this project still haven't fade, which is rare for me since i'm always losing interest about something in a few months, i still have a good grip on the hopes that this project will be finished one day, and i'll keep waiting, like a child waiting for his dad who went out to buy a milk Say you willing to bet which fan translation will go out first between this one and other august game senmomo?

Currently reading Harem Kingdom, where I was met with this: I couldn't help but be reminded of a certain scene from this old gem: Anyway, I rarely read harem or isekai titles, but I have to say that Harem Kingdom is one of the more entertaining reads for me lately. It can be pretty hilarious how each of the girls try to one-up each other in order to get the protagonist's attention!

  16. I made this account a year ago solely to keep track of this project, and i honestly were kinda scared when the progress starts getting slower and slower, Sorry i'm not trying to dismiss the extremely huge effort that you guys put out, simply out of pure love and passion, but after seeing some others fan translation group gave up on this game, i just can't help but to feel that this project will have the same fate. And this fear of mine is kinda genuine because after playing the partial patch, i was invested in the worldbuilding, characters, and just how dark, original and unique the setti

    https://vndb.org/v31125 Looked up one of the monthly releases and played some random game that doesn't take much commitment and played Hooksoft's Aikoi. Looks like a childhood group kind of story with the mc leaving his friend group in his childhood and then returning for some reason. Hooksoft games are a hit or miss for me and I only played through the prologue right now and I skipped so many texts due to it presenting the prologue from the perspective of the MC in his childhood. I skipped for I think 10-20 mins and that is a lot of content if I actually read it. I really don't lik

  21. Ungrateful people like you are the reason there are barley any fan translators left in 2021! People who spend thousands of hours translating a VN for free are doing it because they are fans just like everyone here! You know there have been many fan translator that have dropped their projects due to all the shit posts. I have never understood how people can be so ungrateful for people doing them such a time consuming service for FREE. This group has already done more than most groups by releasing a partial patch.

Specifically it was on the topic of the death of the novel and decline in reading in the digital age, and how I think VNs as a medium can counter this problem. I actually boiled down my core points and recently turned it into a documentary/video-essay:

  25. Hi all. I had a lot going on, and before I knew it, a year had gone by. I knew there would be stretches where I couldn't get much translating done, but I never meant to leave the project without updates for so long. I'm setting a short-term goal of reaching the halfway point of Maiya's route by the end of September. Some people asked about a partial patch download. Here are three files you can copy to your already existing Saimin Yuugi install if you want to test it: https://mega.nz/file/pIpSjL7K#ygSQKnwnNVdE_FQ0s_Rr4sR7e9Wjcl-VT_DjLpQI7gA (催眠遊戯.exe - UI translation) https

  27. Bet you thought this blog was long dead? Unfortunately not. Now that the translation project seems to be dead in the water, I've decided it's time to finish this VN and bring this blog back. My Japanese powers have doubled since the last time I read this in Japanese, so it's actually going a lot smoother this time around. It's also nice that DeepL exists now, it's incredibly helpful when I'm having trouble figuring out what the hell they're trying to say in some convoluted sentence or something.

    Yeah it seemed to work because it was rather self-aware in what it's trying to be. Sora and Kakeru's banter felt real and also extremely funny to me lol, Tanezaki Atsumi's voice elevates their banter to another level or maybe it's just because I'm biased as hell because Tanezaki Atsumi is my favorite voice actor. Who's your favorite heroine and episode? Although I feel like your favorite heroine is already Sora though lol

  30. Hey, everyone! With this update I have at last completed the "Zombie" storyline along one story path. And on the month of Halloween, no less! Shame that the name has had less and less relevance the longer this story has gone on then, haha ^^; Anyway, there may still be a couple kinks to work out in the script, but all in all I reckon it's become a fun and unique experience. Not to mention a massive improvement over the broken original storyline that it replaced. And that's without talking about it having the most ambitious CG sequence in the entire game, most of which has now been c

  32. VNs often have this kind of fanservice where the protagonist gets physically abused for simple misunderstandiings. I have always disliked it and don't find it funny in tbe least. Having said this, there are obviously people who like this kind of ecchi comedy. So can someone explain explain it's appeal to me? Btw I like fanservice as long as the MC doesn't get brutalized.

  33. It's not a VN problematic, but sadly a big part of 'otaku' culture. I don't agree with the fact that's it's just comedy ; it is to me very linked to the same roots as the tsundere thing (especially 2nd generation), super heroines that are stronger than their male counterparts if those are even present (everywhere now, from swordwomen, magical girls to even Yamato Nadeshiko and idols that have become the super heroines of the non-fantastical tales) and even NTR. For me, this is also linked to the famous 'beta' MC. This culture is (was ?) largely a male thing, and as cliché as it may seem,

I already try using VNReader but you know... on my pc getting not responding sometimes, then right now, i use textractor+ chiitrans right now with online/google as the main translator or maybe there is a new machine translator that i dont know Which is the best machine translator for this year?

    And so, as planned, today I started PSP edition of DameKoi I just finished first chapter of prologue/common route. I see some comedy and drama potential, but I'm already a bit annoyed and tired by the protagonist. It seems that in the meantime my tolerance for the hetare protagonists has dropped significantly Well, it's too early to judge, so let's see how it unfolds. Mitoko is nice, and the three guys living at the house are funny Also, MC's traits seem to be so exaggerated, that perhaps it's best taken tongue-in-cheek? I have to say that language-wise this is much harder to read

  38. There's Erina from Dracu Riot, although she's a little more perverted out there. If you prefer the exact same character down to the hair and the VA, perhaps you may be interested with Kana from Daitoshokan. Other than that, well I guess Honoka from Haretaka can also qualify here although she might be a bit extreme compared to what you think. Lastly there's Hazuki from Study Steady. I hope that my recommendations here can be helpful to you.

  39. Not much news from me, but the project is not dead - @Plk_Lesiak is gradually proceeding with proofreading and editing But today I stumbled upon interesting thing on vndb - which further confirms my theory about common pool of assets shared between various TIARE/JAST games. Just look at this screenshot from Muchimuchi Sexy Parfait Onee-sama You which was released on Windows only (no PC98 version). And compare with this:

    That's good to know, thanks From what I remember, there were some routes that were focused more on the mystery, and the others where focus was more on the characters. But when taking the game as a whole, I think it was more or less balanced. If memory serves, main story reveals were in Miu's route, and then in true, and I think that's why guides recommend playing Miu's route as the last one. While I gave WES "only" 7.5, I also loved it - it lost some points mostly because of the map system and its associated woes.

  43. Hey, everyone! It's a bit of a muted release this time I'm afraid. Both me and my artist were pretty badly affected by illness and it seriously disrupted my plans for the month. There's a few more scenes scripted for Nozomi's Zombie storyline, although I was really wanting to finish it by now >.< There's a couple of new CGs for the story as well, although I had to make do with preliminary sketches to present one of them, which is meant to be the first part of a very ambitious CG scene. Also, our main girls all have had a new pose and expressions added to their sprites. Penlight

  44. We're going to put out a partial patch covering the first chapter of the game by the end of the year (unless we run into any unforeseen technical issues). That should take care of any remaining doubts regarding the translation's legitimacy. Other than that, we also plan to put out a partial patch later down the road covering the game's first three chapters (and all the heroine routes and side stories along the way). Thanks for the support!

Critics buried the game and that's why there was much more care in producing next game scenario - that was DESIRE, the game that I can't praise enough. The next year Keno wrote scenario for EVE burst error and on the wave of popularity moved to legendary Elf company where he kept working on EVE franchise and created another masterpiece YU-NO and then left for Abel company.
