  1. At long last, the editing is now done, including going over the previously mentioned short stories, so the pre-QC phase can finally begin. I'll be doing some preliminary testing and once again going over some of the images to update them from any changes done during the editing phase, in addition to applying engine hacks, translating system text for the UI, and also recompiling the scripts and images back into the engine. All told, this will probably take a week or two, and then the actual QC process will begin when I play through the game with the patch applied. All told, this process will ta

  2. Yesterday I finished Loopers. What can I say - it's pretty typical KEY story in a short format, with all pros and cons that come with it. I loved it - but I'm easily moved, and I like KEY formula, so the fact that this VN adheres to it didn't bother me at all I think the fairy tale prologue sets the mood perfectly, and it tells what this story actually is, allowing to adjust expectations. Because I have to admit, seeing the premise and R07 as main writer, it's easy to expect more, and then get disappointed - which can be seen in some reviews. I think it's a similar c

    What are you playing?

    ^"If you're not tired of the KEY formula yet, want another dose, but don't have time for behemots such as Clannad or Summer Pockets - go for it" Sold. I already have Loopers on my Switch but haven't gotten around to it; but I'll definitely move it up on my to-do-list ~~ AI: Nirvana Initiative was good. If you liked the general reading experience from The Somnium Files you should be able to enjoy this as well. The Somniums can be solved more logically this time around instead of having to trial and error yolo choosing random actions and hoping for the best so that's a plus.

  4. Oh, well, I personally like all kinds of artstyles, although if you'd ask me for my favourites, they'd likely turn out to not be non-anime, but more stylized/unconventional spins on anime art... Like Steins;Gate for example. The point being, I'm a weeb, I like anime-style things and most people that will ever look at a visual novel for more than 5 seconds are either like me or Japanese. From their very beginnings, Japanese VNs had a pretty strong connections to anime and they are made primarily for Japanese readers, who seem to be pretty conservative with their tastes. Non-JP VNs are made

  5. Two weeks on in the editing process and I've now gone through the common route along with Matsuri's and Kimika's routes to get over 50% of the editing done. As a result, I'll probably finish up the editing sometime in early August, and then there will be around a month of the QC phase along with tweaks, adjustments and testing. So I can now finally give a definitive release window: The English patch will be released in September. So if you haven't already, go buy the game on DMM (Japanese proxy required to access and purchase via paypal) or you could also buy the physical copy if you can find

  6. Today we have 24 out of 37 script files for Yuzuki's route were translated, and along with it we also have halfway of her sex scenes (5 out of 10) were translated. Good to see that the translator was finally halfway done with the sex scenes, and that's all for the update here.

  7. Here's yet another update from the translator, and right now we have 21 out of 37 script file for Yuzuki's route were translated. We also have one of the staffs said they have planned to have Yuzuki's route fully translated by September. Well let's see if they can fulfill the promise later on (Good luck to the translator in regard of it), and that's all for the update here.

    My name is Hiromi-sama. I am a 27 year old Erogamer... is what I'd like to say, but I'm not that close yet to becoming a wizard. I started learning Japanese long before I had an idea what I was doing with my life. As a result, now I can read and listen most Japanese media with ease. Unfortunately, these days I mostly end up using my superior intellect to train my katana to 18禁 ASMR on DLsite. Just kidding, I usually squander my time acquiring rights to animated JPEGs of 2D girls on my mobile device (Arona-chan Izuna-chan uohh Yuuka-chan UOHH ). Jokes aside, these days my cont

  10. Kind of off-topic, but recently I started reading some English-original web-novels, and I really enjoyed this one. I thought that you may like it as well. The MC there is somewhat contradictory: being a demon stuck among people, she does have some pretty unique values, and while she is mostly self-centered with the exception of small set of companions she really cares about, she still ends up helping others a lot. I thought her character and how it changes through the novel was extremely well, done, and that's probably the main reason why I enjoyed this novel. She is also pretty hilarious.

  11. I've never watched Elaina, but what I hear generally interests me. That said, without actually watching it I can't tell how I'd take to it or its particular execution. The idea of a self-centred but powerful person who doesn't help others if she doesn't need to unless she feels like it appeals to me, but it depends on how its done. Even if the character is written that way unintentionally I could still like or dislike it. Still, I watch like one anime show per semester these days, so the point is moot. I won't be watching this any time soon.

  12. I've been watching plain unhealthy amounts of anime lately, both by myself and with my GF... Not all of it worth talking about, but there were a few interesting ones too. First, the amusing disasters. Psychic Wars and Dark Cat are two legendarily bad old anime movies and both are hilarious in their own ways. Psychic Wars is a story of a surgeon that becomes magical shinto superman and punches demons. It's also so horribly edited it's barely comprehensible and the fight scenes are so dumb and cliched I nearly died from laughter on a few occasions. Utterly horrible and taking itself so seri

  13. Before someone asks, I merely paused the other VN to start Magatsu Barai (and Xenoblade Chronicles 3). I will finish it (eventually). Magatsu Barai is the first Light game to be made from beginning to end after the collapse of the company's original owners. As such, it is only natural (and unfortunate, at least to an extent) that some things will have changed. To address the elephant in the room for anyone who has seen the cover or sample cgs... The coloring really is that awful. I mean, how could any cg artist think those colors wouldn't be eye cancer? On the other hand, t

  15. This might be common knowledge, but while I was aware of VN adaptations being generally cursed, I had no idea to what extent that's true. It turns out that among top 5 worst rated anime in history, two places are taken by none other than Idea Factory and two OVA that promote some very original, totally not Evangelion rip-off PS2 VNs. Mars of Destruction and Skelter Heaven. And what treats they are, so perfect in presenting virtues of VNs to broader world: alien-fighting high school girls, male protagonists perfectly devoid of unnecessary features such as personality, extremely awkward and inap

  16. Pardon my lack of updates on this project. Truth be told, I haven't made much progress in the past couple months (stuck around 85% on common route), and the Editor seems busy with work-related stuff too. A little bit of excuse from me: I've just moved to another country and started a new job, and moving around and getting stuck in quarantine and whatnot got me worn down quite a bit, not to mention the overwhelming amount of new stuff to learn at work. As it currently stands, I might have to put this off for a few more weeks before having a stable enough schedule to continue chipping away

Text reinsertion has been fixed to create a second text window when it overflows from the first. Still to go: Remaining graphic editing. Some programming work is still required to insert the updated graphics. Finish proofreading Tonoko's route Create patch.

  19. Where are the best places to find Artists capable of making Characters? Especially male characters. I've tried Fiver so far, but most of them from the looks of it can only really draw females and those who can draw males are so booked they don't have time. I've only looked on Deviant Art and not made a post yet afraid of who all would respond and only sifted through a few vn forums. I'm honestly not sure where I should search. I'm willing to pay them provided they are reasonable.

  21. Well it's been a while since I make a tier list for AX, so let me try here seeing that Otakon is almost close (Again, and I suppose they decided to held it in July's end instead of August's beginning from now on). Also note that I didn't add Shiravune's announcements here because they announced it before AX, and that I'll not list Watasi-tachi no Marrigae 1 for the same reason that I did find out about it before the AX happened. Very Good Hamidashi Creative Tokyo Necro Those two above are the VNs that were quite well received even before announced to have localization, so

  22. Is it legal to praise Crunchyroll on the internet? Not only is their library in my region steadily improving, they also cut the subscription costs heavily for regions without access to their full catalogue. I don't feel bad about giving them money for the first time in years... Anyway, got through some fun stuff lately! Continuing with Studio Ghibli, I've seen the legendary My Neighbour Totoro and while I understand it's a kids' movie, boy was it not for me in any way. It was mostly just two small girls screeching in headacke-inducing manner and a tiny bit of whimsical fantasy stuff that

  24. I see that we finally have another retro VN translated. It also should be noted that while the VN is following the story from KEY VNs at that time (Kanon and Air), the company here is the predecessor of Yuzusoft with both of the artist and the composer is the main staff for Yuzusoft VNs. The company itself also has some nukige VNs in the past, although then again it's nothing special seeing that our Jun Maeda was also involved in Moon (Which has some twisted contents) before forming KEY. As for the opening, well it's quite long indeed although at least I can say it's quite nice to hear (Whethe

    Sekai Project question

    I want to read Amatsutsumi, but in Japanese all-ages edition, so it seems that my only choice is PSV version. If Sekai's edition was bilingual, I'd probably get it from GOG. (Some of the sexual tags seen on vndb are quite a turn-off for me, so hentai version is out of the question - especially when that's coupled with "Long Sexual Scenes" tag )

  28. The incessant yuri baiting (with your typical "weird girl obsessively in love with the protagonist" trope) likely didn't endear me to it either... But yeah, I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone, the ratings it gets are generally high, but it falls apart if you actually pay attention to what the episodic stories show you. Plus the tone shifts in some of them are borderline-comical and the show hardly earns the really heavy drama it occasionally tries to pull off.

  30. Oh my god, that Tsui no Sora OVA... It's possibly the ugliest and most insulting thing I've watched ever. I know the original wasn't a masterpiece, but there's no semblance of the artstyle or denpa storytelling in that hentai anime... And it's just so hideous and poorly animated... Why do these things exist? I'm sad...

  33. In a different world over a lifetime ago, a younger me and some geeky friends made a rough VN about mermaids and magic. The pandemic kicked up my love of storytelling again, and since I was already doing it for fun, I figured I would see if this particular flavor of story was still appealing to folks round here~ Welcome to the proper thread for Aquae ~Crystal Clear Waters~ a fantasy/adventure visual novel. Completely free to play as was the original though now with a much more vivid and expanded world to explore. Still mostly kinetic though now with the ability to change certai

  35. 1. I am not an official translator but I know some stuff about the business. Mostly on the indie/VN end, not 8-4 or squeenix or whatever level. Most weeb media companies, esp for VNs, work near exclusively with contracted freelancers. There are some exceptions, but those want you to live in the US or Japan. Most companies avoid agencies for niche media; shiravune/johren is a kinda cringe exception. Nobody really wants to hire an agency, it's more expensive. 2. Contractor positions are usually remote. Full-time positions are usually onsite and usually somewhere with crazy cost of living (c

  36. Sorry for the double post here, and seeing that we got Rune Factory 5 on PC I decided to try it. I did hear that it has some problem on Switch mainly in regard of the slowdown, and after seeing that it manage to run on my laptop smoothly I can say that at least it's good to see that the PC version did fix slowdown issue. Too bad though that the movement button can't be customized here, so I need to get use to the new button here (For the info the movement key was binded to WASD while usually I use directional button for the movement). Another thing to note is that Rune Factory 5 here offer the

  46. The only VN I have ever read fill your preferences is Subarashiki Hibi (Wonderful Everyday). Especially that small stories pieces together part is the best here. OSTs are epic too. And about Mc it has like 5 mc(maybe 6). It is the most mindblowing thing in the VNs. It will make you crave for it more I promise. If you want some mystery and from the same creators of Grisaia Try ISLAND. This VN too has the best turns and twists which will blow your mind at the end. Try Rewrite too. It got some best action in all of the Key games. True route is just another milestone here. Hello Lady! s

  49. Update for Common Route: 78.31% TL-ed (8001 / 10217 lines) 5.07% Edited (518 / 10217 lines) A lot has happened since the last time I updated here, but essentially a new editor has poofed into our server, and in light of his English superpowers, we've decided to reset our editing progress to fit his style. Personally, I'm terrifically excited to see his big-brain writing brought to light in the future. Also, we got a new Image Editor, yay.
