  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

  2. Todokanai Translations Presents White Album 2 https://vndb.org/v2920 & https://vndb.org/v7771 Description Howdy The patch will includes translations for the entirety of White Album 2. That includes Introductory Chapter, Closing Chapter & Coda. Beyond that, the patch also revises the contents of the questionable partial patch we released before, including retranslations of whole parts that were beyond saving. Further beyond that, our lovely programmers have managed to fiddle around with the script to include 14 new PS3 exclusive CGs to our patch

  3. 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

  4. 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

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.

  8. Hey man. I actually worked on this game's translation for a while before real life fucked me. Was actually curious because someone actually completing the game appeared, and I wanted to see what's up. After looking into stuff for a bit though I'm left with no choice but to make a post. You claim that you translated the entire base game and the fandisk "in a matter of weeks" working for 16 hours a day each day. Sorry, but this is impossible. No one, and I say no one, can work for 16 hours straight in translation for several days and not deliver a below par result. Also, honestly

  11. So, the recent release of The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass went pretty unnoticed so far, but currently seems to get some attention thanks to a comment on VNDB. It actually has a rating above 8.5 with over 60 votes there, which is unusually high for an OELVN. There aren't even that many JVN's that high. It's a scifi mystery thriller that actually looks pretty professional. It uses NVL style, which I personally don't like that much, but if the story is good it might not matter that much. So, for everyone who isn't already jumping on Muramasa and looking more for a SciFi mystery VN in the spirit of

  12. Good morning good people of Fuwa! As the person that is keeping the main site slightly less dead than it could've been, I decided I could use a space to post about new content without making new threads every time. Here I (or possibly other authors) will post updates whenever something goes up on Fuwa's frontpage – feel free to comment & discuss. This weekend I published a review of ebi hime's The Mermaid of Zennor, a very interesting and very angsty psychological drama VN. Consider checking it out and leaving your impressions here or in the comments under the article!

Rikuto had a new younger brother Ayumu after his father’s remarriage. However, little did he know that Ayumu was actually his younger sister and it was under her mother’s orders that she pretend to be a boy to him. Every day, his heart beats a little faster around his overly cute ‘brother’ (sister), while her heart aches in having to hide her true identity from her kind brother. With the arrival of spring, Ri

    Ho ho ho, ho ho hoes; 'tis the season! If your avatar is the same as it was last year and I gave you a Santa hat for said avatar, it's time to change it. Otherwise, you may select one of the Santa hats and/or other adornments below, and I'll use my sick graphical skillz to put it on your avatar. (If you don't choose a hat, I'll choose for you, for better or worse. [Worse.]) You know the rules, and so do I.

  16. 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,

Oh god I think I'm gonna become hella spoiled by Yuzusoft I forgot that they actually put in the effort to change character sprites to go in tandem with what whatever the characters are currently saying. Bless whoever they hired that has enough OCD to take the time to do all of that. It actually makes me want to listen to the entire dialogue rather than doing my whole min/maxing sweetspot reading because it really does amplify the reading experience significantly. ~~ Anyways I ended up going for Riddle Joker, cuz I need me some high school superpowers Friggen' Himawari, b

  18. Finally a quicker update than usual. I actually managed to finish translating Mao's arc much faster than I expected, but that mainly lends itself to Katagi Kou's relatively straightforward writing style that I've gotten quite used to over the course of translating the common route and Matsuri's route that he also wrote. But also, I confess, I had a lot of fun reading through Mao's arc. Like, a lot of fun. That's not to say I haven't enjoyed the entire story thus far. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't love the story, obviously. But each arc has its own unique attractions and charms to them,

  19. Two more milestones have been met in the past week. The first is that over 50% of the game has been translated as of June 2, and also that Kimika's route is now fully translated, bringing the total translation up to 55%. Last time, I had mentioned that Kimika's route is the shortest, and although that's technically true by line count, I looked over the individual character counts again and I realized that Kimika actually has about 150,000 characters (kanji/kana), which is almost exactly how many characters the common route has, despite the common route being almost 1,200 lines longer.

  20. Late to inform this, but better late than never. Anyway all 139 script files for Mizuha's route were fully translated, which obviously mean all of her route including all of her 10 sex scenes were translated. That said while obviously this is a big steps to get Mizuha's patch, the work is still not over yet because the translator decided to do some do over on the scripts before editing it. Also the translator decided to get some rest before translating Yuzuki's route (And yes he basically decided to translate Yuzuki's route) seeing that Mizuha's route here is quite long and has a number of cha

  21. Today we have another update, although said update is more like a week ago though because right now apparently the translator put some focus on polishing Akagoei (Daybreak's main translation project). As for the update, currently 94 out of 139 script files were translated with 6 out of 10 sex scenes were translated. Also the translator mention that he already finished with the high school arc, so all that left from Mizuha's route is her adult arc (Each of Ginharu's routes are divided into three arcs (Middle school, high school, and adult) for the reminder).

  22. Today we have 34 out of 141 script files for Mizuha's route was translated, and more importantly the first part of Mizuha's route (Middle school arc) was translated so obviously the next work would be on the second part (High school arc).

  26. The creation and release of Katawa Shoujo is still I think one of the proudest moments of the Western VN scene so I think it deserves a topic celebrating it's 10th anniversary. I also know that a lot of people who eventually became active on here got their start with Katawa Shoujo (I could be wrong, but I believe our esteemed Admin @Tay even falls into this category). In any case, it's definitely among my favorite VNs and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts and memories of it. On that note, years ago @Palas made an excellent post about it and I'd like to share that here: Katawa Shoujo Analysi

  27. Some people may have seen the relatively low-quality anime for Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou and are probably wondering why I am bothering to spout about this. Lately I've been plowing through LNs and web novels because I ran out of interesting VNs, but this is the first one I feel a need to expound on at length. Let's be clear, I am one of the freaks who enjoyed the anime, though I did so while wincing constantly at the animators' choices and the horrible monster CGs. To me, Hajime's story just stood out as being that good, despite the crippling weakness of having used up half the s

Seriously though, at this rate you'll going in circle by your request (If not command) in regard of creating black skinned MC in a VN. I'm not saying that it's not possible to have black skinned MC in a VN, but I afraid I must say that your point here might be taken as an insult to even black skinned people because you just directly assume that what black skinned people need to be happy is just to self insert with the same skin colored MC, while actually there's a lot of factor that can

  33. Currently enjoying Kinkoi, but the following dialogue went completely over my head. Does anyone have any idea what it's a reference to? In any case, it's one of the better VNs I've read lately, although there's a weird (and somewhat creepy) bug that causes face sprites to show up separated from the heads, but it doesn't happen too often. Here's an example: (I might've added some additional text. *cough*)

    What are you playing?

    I recently read 'Kotonoha Amrilato'. The premise is as simple as it is intriguing: Rin, a regular japanese high-schooler, suddenly finds herself in a bizarre version of her own world after buying taiyaki at a stall on the street. This world is, for the most part, almost identical to her world, but a couple of remarkable aspects stand out: the sky appears to have a pink hue no matter the time of the day (yes, even at night), and all the signs and posters on the street are written in a weird language, whose writing system sort of resembles the roman alphabet albeit with noticeab

But instead he decided to translate Mizuha's route first with 2 out of 141 script files were translated, and it should be noted that unlike Trip the new translator decided to use script files number to track the progress so I decided to keep it like that seeing that each scripts may contain different number of lines thus track it by percentage may not represent the real p

You could have linked to your video and typed out your top ten common routes here, for people who don't have time to watch a bloated video. Instead you want us to leave the forums, watch your video (which genuinely, I appreciate that you put time into) , and then direct all discussion to your comments section instead. That doesn't benefit the forums in anyway, only you. Now I get it, these forums are a bit of a necropolis. I can

Obviously back then I didn't expect that there'll be full version, only to have 4chan manage to release the full version of it at January 4th of 2012 (I remember the date because that date was happen to be one of the important date for my family). Well Katawa Shoujo here is definitely not my starter VN (The title goes to Shuffle and Kira Kira), although I won't deny the fact that it's the first VN for a lot of people though along with one of the most popular VN on VNDB

  44. Yeah, I get what you mean. Back when I started reading VNs, I read h-scenes in their entirety because I wouldn't want to risk missing out on anything story related, but there's usually nothing even remotely noteworthy in them so I just skip past most of them nowadays. I can imagine there being a few scenes that are worthwhile in White Album 2 though, so I might pay more attention there.

It's definitely on the good end of the spectrum; it simply fell short of my, admittedly high, expectations. To say it in clearer terms, I wouldn't place it among my top 10 VNs, as suggested on VNDb; maybe not even my top 30. To name a few things I disliked about it: - The protagonist. Yeah, he's pretty much the definition of an antihero and he's expected to grow on you over time, but I still think you'd need to be able to symphathize with him somewhat from the getgo to truly immerse your

  49. Howdy, all! As the title suggests, I'm somewhat far from center of the target audience for most visual novels. I'm an oldtimer D&D pen and paper RPGer turned MMO junkie, FPS practitioner, Sims3 storytelling blogger and, now, avid visual novel consumer. I'm also now rediscovering anime for the first time since Ronald Reagan was president. I'm an imperfect but striving husband, dad, programmer, teacher, and outdoorsman who seems to always find and hike the rocky trails. Those are the most fun! But it's murder on the knees...

Like, he never directly responds to feedback or discusses stuff in the way forums users usually do, but you can see the effects of our responses every time this pops up. The framing is always slightly different and new arguments are replacing the ones that were most violently rebuked. It's as if this was some kind of spell, with the author looking for that one exact set of words that will magically conjure his dream project into existence. I haven't seen anything like it before.
