    What are you playing?

    Actually that change of pacing didn't bother me much. Rather, the final route was perhaps my favorite part of the game. I'd say that it was a bit artificially slowed down by all that adventure game mechanics. Of course final route makes some huge timeskips, but it still worked for me. And I really appreciated that it ditched the point'n'click mechanics. Disclaimer: I played fan-TL of original with added voice patch. Maybe remake does some things differently?

    General Information VNDB : https://vndb.org/v28160 Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai - Rikka to Anata no 1-Shuunen Kinen, Icha Love Birthday is a very short fandisc that takes place between Rikka's school route and after route in Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai. The fandisc unfortunately does not come with voice acting. Despite that, I think it captures the essence of Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai perfectly given it's short length. For such a popular VN, I'm surprised that barely anyone noticed that it has this small fandisc accompanying it. Even when restricted with language barriers, the work is free, extremely short, but the VNDB vote count is extremely low (7 votes at the time of writing). I thought that I could give something back to it, after being completely engrossed by Hoshi Ori Yume Mirai. And so, a small passion project was born. This will be the first time that I have done any translation for fictional works, much less in digital form. A programmer I am not, there are some things that I just can't be bothered to fix in this release (removing the character limit when rewriting names). With this limited experience, there will be the possibility of unnoticed errors or shortcomings in this release. Any pointers or constructive criticisms regarding the release would be appreciated. I also have added the SD art for all the 6 girls extracted from Hoshi Ori as a little extra bonus. With that said, I have to humbly disagree with any opinion that does not think 0003 is the best girl. Also thank you to Tsurezure Scans for giving the permission to use their assets. You can download the .zip file here. It requires AlphaROMdiE to run (included in the .zip). Drag SiglusEngine.exe to AlphaROMdiE.exe and you're good to go. The system locale should be set into Japanese; I cannot guarantee that it would work without having this setting.

    Afaik the remake uses the original script (without H-scenes). The main issue with the final route imo is how disconnected it is from the main game. The "not caring about side characters introduced 30 hours into the game" part wouldn't be as much of a problem if there was something you cared about in the first half that carried over, like

    Iwaihime coming west October 23

    As for ShiraVN itself, so far there's no much controversy when it come to their policy especially in regard of all age release only. Not to mention that their VNs so far are quite well received and there's no much complain (Or perhaps almost none) in regard of bad translation, so I can say that in term of release number they already doing well compared to Sol Press lol. Lastly, it's good to see that we can see more Ryukishi's work being translated even though it's not by Mangagamer, and Iwaihime here is one of most requested VNs to be translated so I'll look forward to see what ShiraVN can do in the future. About Iwaihime itself I played the trial and as I can see some of the characters are quite deja vu of Higurashi (Susumu here is like Keichi while Kiko here is like Mion), although of course this time there's none of the bad art happen in there. For the Rika's clone that Dreamysyu ask about, obviously it's Toe even though her hair is not blue especially if you look at her setting later.

    Congratulation on the successful Kickstarter, and it's just too bad that it barely almost reach sixth stretch goal with ~37,660,000 yen funded (Sixth stretch goal is at 39,600,000 yen funded). But reached five stretch goal there is still a sizeable feat compared to Frontier when it only manage to reach three stretch goal with ~23,600,000 yen funded, so overall I'm content with it. I look forward to the eventual release on Hypno, so good luck.
