  1. I think ultimately, us readers won AX , there's just so many choices, something for everyone and its not even the last convention of the year. Pretty content with the announcements.

  2. I don't know subahibi and i can't imagine how important a bestiality scene is, but 10-15 lines is actually a lot of lines. So much can be said with those lines, so much can be conveyed if used properly. For example: Thats like 13-15 lines i think. So it depends on the scene in the Vn and what's being said and how its used to invoke particular thoughts and feelings from the reader. All i'm saying is 10-15 lines can mean a lot.

    Starting soon

    I'm ANH16 and while I am not reading visual novels yet, when I replace my broken computer I'll start immediately after that. I also enjoy watching anime although few are interesting enough to get me past the first few episodes and I also enjoy building gunpla.

  4. I'm currently playing Ai yori Aoi Umi no Hate, AXL's latest game by their 'unusual slice-of-life' team, and the setting is seriously bothering me. It isn't that the concept is boring... there is nothing wrong with the concept of people living on a massive self-repairing ship hundreds of years after the demise of land-bound culture due to global warming. No, the problem is the concept of the game and how it interacts with the setting. Ok, I can live with the idea that advanced culture was lost - deliberately or otherwise, and I can also live with the characters centering about 80% of th

  7. Mangagamer. Damekoi is one of the milestone VNs, we'll finally have a Maruto game in English, and Evenicle is the gameplay eroge I'm most interested in after the Baldr series. Sekai didn't do much outside their newfound yuzusoft obsession (three titles from the same partner in simultaneous translation, that may be the new record), so even though I'm pretty hyped for Nanairo Reincarnation, MG's new announcements still seem a bit more surefire. Frontwing probably decided not to reveal their major cards for now, JAST is dead.

  9. I get why Herkz is salty and it does seem kinda bullshit how they wouldn't allow the old team to continue their work, but he's assuming that no effort is being expended to pick things up where the old team left off, despite having no actual knowledge of what FW is doing. What he's saying is possible, but it still seems like a rather shaky position from which to tell everyone not to buy the game. FW has a good track record for TL quality post-chiruchiru, so I suspect that they wouldn't want to release Subahibi in such a shoddy state.

  11. But this is not a fan translation. This is a product that you paid for. If it was just another poor fan TL, that would at least be something, but this is an official TL. This quality is not okay for an official release.

    VN of the Year 1993

    Year 1993 was... strange. Most of praised games of the year were blocked by me due to nukige nature of the games. Those games include Kawarazaki-ke no Ichizoku, Rance 4, Viper series, NOVA, Ayumi-chan Monogatari, Kindan no Ketsuzoku. And a lot of quality representatives that I don't even want to mention here are purest brainless nukige. It really looked to me as if the world got mad after the strict censorship of 1992. The number of VNs that made into my list slightly decreased from 4.08 in 1992 to 3.75 in 1993 due to increased nukige tendency. The notable features of year 1993 in

  13. Hey all, I just wanted to let everyone know that Princess Evangile W Happiness was officially set to be released on July 28th. For those who haven't noticed this announcement yet, I post here to let you in on the good news. Princess Evangile was one of my all time top three favorite visual novels and since Mangagamer announced back in 2015 that they were translating W Happiness, I was extremely excited and now after waiting two long years or more, we finally have a release date set and I just pre-ordered my copy on Mangagamer! Both all ages and 18+ will be released on the 28th and M

  18. I also recommend reverting back and finishing routes in this order Kasumi>Kei>Marie>Rea It is very important order if you want maximum experience from the game. Or should I say, in order not to ruin that experience. Also, DON'T SKIP ROUTES. Dies Irae is not something like Fate/Stay Night or other similar VNs. You need specific info from other routes or some parts will not make sense. As for heroines, personally I was not a fan of Kasumi or her route, but I am glad I finished it in the way it was recommended. To be perfectly honest, out of 4 main heroines, I liked Marie the

  19. Seriously...? Well that sucks. How do we know they won't cut more from the game while they are at it. I know that is really paranoid, but if they already cut one thing, they might have cut more. How do you know they cut something? I couldn't see anything about that on their twitter.

  20. No, because no matter how popular herkz is (he's reasonably popular), most buyers will never read fuwanovel, reddit, 4chan, or herkz' tweets directly, and will have no idea about any of this stuff.

  21. If you want an H-Code for a PPSSPP, you have to find one yourself for every game you want to hook. Here is everything you need to know: http://agth.wikia.com/wiki/Cheat_Engine_AGTH_Tutorial Alternatively, you can use HAT. When using HAT, you don't need an H-Code.

  22. So, basically, herkz didn't do any work on subahibi for a whole year during the license negotiations, even though the possibility of them just straight up buying out the script sounds very likely even to a bystander like me. Way more likely than hiring him to continue the job. And so now he decided to play the usual drama queen right before the release because his work ended up unfinished without even knowing what happened to the script afterwards. I know my words are rude but it sure sounds like the genius herkz alright, would be a pity if the game ends up jinxed as a result.

  23. Well, that's not what I'd expected from Frontwing announcements when I'd heard word 'plenty announcements' earlier, just like Kryt said in regard of JAST. Especially because I prefer them to had announced the secret projects directly instead of keeping it secret. Oh well. Anyway, as for secret projects thing it could subjected to many speculation (Duh) but perhaps it could be Goo's new project seeing that Island was announced at last year AX. The only way to knew is that we must wait for months though, just as Frontwing promised there. As for Wonderful Everyday, finally we got the release

  24. Not sure where you've been listening for your ZERO news, because they updated the Kickstarter just in the last couple of weeks. Here's the most recent post with relevant information: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/muvluv/muv-luv-a-pretty-sweet-visual-novel-series/posts/1859716. It does not, for instance, include an actual release date announcement, but at least they think they're close (though I've very recently heard some rumblings that their public messaging has been overly optimistic this whole time and likely still is). At any rate, nobody knows "how long do we wait", but at least th

  25. What's a ppsspp? I thought you just meant psp but had a stuttering problem, but idk. Either way, I have zero clue on how to even get H-Codes for VNs, so sorry. Just wanted to say I'm very sorry about your stuttering issue, the rest of your post was good, so you must be working hard on it. Good job!

  26. The scenes aren't considered individually, they're considered in relation to the work as a whole. The game itself might, it might not. I'm no lawyer, I just read up on this stuff because it interests me. My point never was that these games are / aren't obscene. The law is incredibly vague on this point anyway, it basically is applied on a case-by-case basis. My point was that if it does go to court, the disclaimers won't really mean a whole lot.

  27. I think this is mostly a question of consideration of audience. There's certainly something to be said for targeting your translation for an audience of non-Japanese speakers who have nonetheless been steeped in Japanese culture, but there's also something to be said for tuning a translation to try to capture a broader audience, hopefully without losing that venerable audience of enthusiasts. This is, I presume, the line that most VN translations try to walk these days: increasing accessibility without sacrificing the accuracy and context that, understandably, the enthusiasts demand. And

  28. Oh, no, my dear Majikoi! Why, why JAST? I will never have my sweet time with maids... Better start learning moonrunes, because now I definitely have all the time in the world. Also, FLOWERS -The volume of summer- (Winter 2017), JAST, come on! As for the long-awaited 18+ Maitetsu, I still have a doubt that we'll get the full version without the most controversial content being cut. It's so loli and with Steam coverage, so it could potentially raise some SJW hysteria. But if Sekai would have chosen to make the unofficial patch (like JAST with part of SD), I would forgive them all the s

  29. Reminder that https://vndb.org/v20433 was also a thing, not to mention this other little game you may have heard of, https://vndb.org/v15538. I don't think they're shy about picking up moenukige.

  31. Magical Marriage Lunatics Decent fantasy charage, but no better than decent. Typical of Moonstone. The Most Forbidden Love in the World While this game counts as a classic, I can guarantee it is going to cause trouble, considering that it openly states in-game that Mitoko is underage. Nanairo Reincarnation A kamige and a great choice in general... though I'm curious how they plan to deal with the plays on kanji and the uniquely Japanese concepts. Senren * Banka One of the better games from YuzuSoft... Dracu-riot... do I need to say anything more at this poin

  32. Majikoi, now that's interesting. Will be nice to see an official release of that. Question is: When will they release it? It's a pretty long game, and... JAST. So... 2044? 2045? Anyone want to place some bets with me?
