Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. For this week title since we have Summer Pocket Ao's patch released and that Summer Pocket story here is basically resembled KEY older VN story, I treat Summer Pocket as KEY All Stars an combined it with PreCure All Stars Memories so we have 'KEY All Stars Memories', only that the most obvious reason is we wouldn't have all KEY VNs heroines in Summer Pocket. And since we already have three patches released, I did treat this as the part three of the review. That aside since we didn't see a releases we can say that this week is more or less a calm one, although with Mangagamer finally announce Bokuten release date after six years along with Ao's patch released, this week is turned out still interesting to me. Let's see what I can write for this week as well. In case you still want your otome VN Alice Taisho to be retranslated, be happy because we have a well known translator Verdilish retranslate it. As far as progress concerned, it's almost ready for the release. Or to be exact we already have the release date for that and it'll be at 28th later, so if you've been want ed to read Alice Taisho with better translation feel free to take note on the date. For the info, we already have this translated for a while with the localization company did their best to translate and dubbing the VN. Although in this case the hardwork of the company is not appreciated though, mostly because of their translation fiasco (Hiragana Alice and Katakana Alice anyone?) and that the dub is not the best quality to say it lightly (Apparently it's only been dubbed by one person). As for me, even with the better translation and I took a liking of otome VN I still wouldn't interested with Alice Taisho though, and the reason is because we only have one part being translated and therefore we need to wait if we want to play the full version here. Congratulation to Sekai Project in regard of their successful Rewrite+ Kickstarter at 207,200 funded, and hopefully it mean that they'll work on this more intensive now that they already got the new translator for it. Still not going to change my mind that the main game is a redundant one even with the so-called revised script in the Plus version, but at least the fandisc is still nice if you've been waiting for it since back when Ixrec finished Comyu's translation (At 2014 for the reminder). Of course we still need to wait for Sekai to finished the main game first, but let's just hope that it'll be done quickly. We also have some updates from Sol Press like I said back at last week, and for the updates currently we have Sakura Celebration was at 48% translated along with 38% edited, Himawari no Kioku was at 69% translated along with 58% edited, and Nukitashi was at 58% translated along with 7% edited (I can see that Sol Press will delay Nukitashi's release at 22nd later with the current progress here). For Sol Press here, I'm just hope that we can see both of Witch's Garden and Mirai Radio progress in the near future. As for the aforementioned Bokuten release date, Mangagamer did announce it back at NYC. The release date for that will be at December 19th later, in which it should make a good Christmas release here (Although Mangagamer may have one more release to announce after Funbag Fantasy 2 release though). For a bit of history, Mangagamer did announce this back at 2014 which mean that it need five years to be finally released. Granted that there's a lot of porting work in order to allow both of Mac and Linux user to play this, but to me it's not like it's necessary seeing that most of PC user would using Windows. If anything else, at least it's good that Mangagamer willingly to approach OS user outside Windows. For the story, granted that I only read the review but at least I can say it'll be more dark compared to other Overdrive VNs so much that it leaned towards utsuge. Also if you dislike Deardrops writing, you better just ignore this seeing that the writer is the same and that he's more or less will write in the same way (In that I just realized he might be on cynical side in regard of love). From fan translation, currently we have Trip took a rest as Irru said so obviously we didn't have Ginharu update at this week. Of course we still have some other updates though, such as Miotsukushi Omote was past halfway (53%) translated, Loverable was at 73.06% translated, and Eustia was at 82.50% translated with Eustia's chapter was also already past 80% mark (84.84%) translated. For the big update here, we have Alka released the aforementioned Ao's patch so you can get it at their site if you've been want to play it only for Ao's sake just because she was designed by Tsubasu Izumi, and have fun. For Alka's next plan here, obviously they'll continuing Kamome's route translation in which it's been at a quarter (25.14%) translated and then they'll working on the true route translation. That's all for this week VNTS Review, and see you next week.
  2. [NekoNyan News] Senren Banka delayed

    Well I guess good to hear that Yuzusoft already established good relationship with Nekonyan, so hopefully Senren Banka release will going well. Also that shinigami in 4 koma Stella did recall her VA previous aliases, although too bad that she didn't shout Cappucino and Century (Well Yuzusoft would need to ask the permission from Palette and Moonstone respectively if they want to use it).
  3. Summer Pockets English Translation

    Yesterday they released Ao's patch which mean obviously we have three out of four girls routes already translated, so go get the patch from their website if you interested with her (Especially if you like Tsubasu's art) and have fun.
  4. [NekoNyan News] Senren Banka delayed

    As for the source, it's from one of Discord's shout in which it tell me that one of VNDB user said that Yuzusoft will withdrawn Senren Banka license (ie the contract) if they couldn't release it by December. So in other word, it's supposedly from VNDB although anything from VNDB could be taken with a grain of salt. While once again it leaned toward baseless speculation, I can't say for certain though if the speculation is just an empty rumor seeing that there's many secrets that happen between the company. Still you didn't need to worry about that here, and I'm quite sure (Also hopeful) that Nekonyan will be able to negotiate with Yuzusoft here seeing that so far only Nekonyan have a big success released Yuzusoft VNs. Granted it's only one VN (Sanoba Witch), but one release is still far better compared to two frozen VNs license with one of those are a redundant one.
  5. Having issues in-game (Kamidori Alchemy Meister)

    I also experienced the same thing in regard of my animation attack, so perhaps your laptop being old might be a factor here (My laptop is from 2009 by the way). What I can say is that as long as the game didn't crash after that, it should be fine. About the battle maps missing some text, it seems that Aroduc have some problem when he insert the text translation of the field so he decided to remove it for the translated version (Not much loss here anyway). By the way I don't know what your friend did with his Kamidori file, so you may ask him to do some comparison here. I hope my answer will be helpful to you.
  6. [NekoNyan News] Senren Banka delayed

    I would say that Senren Banka delay seems quite likely, and moreso if Nekonyan want to release it optimally. I don't really know whether Meru's addition will increase the pace of the translation or not seeing that she'll only translate two side routes, but I hope it'll help a lot. In case Nekonyan really need to delay Senren Banka here (I didn't mind it if it's really neccesary), I just hope that they can negotiate with Yuzusoft since I'd hear that apparently Yuzusoft will cancel the contract if Nekonyan can't release Senren Banka by December (While I hope that it's just an unnecessary worry, there's a chance for that). PS - Personally I think that Makeover would be more fitting for December release, but if they already committed to make sure that they can release Senren Banka by December then it's okay.
  7. Rewrite+ Kickstarter

    I guess we can count this as being successful, and since there's no stretch goal the burden should be lighter here. So congratulation for Sekai in regard of Rewrite Kickstarter even though it's still 10 hours left, and hopefully they'll manage to deliver the product in reasonable timeframe. I still think of this as redundant though especially if we know that there's no much change in Rewrite+ script, but at least Harvest Fiesta should be worth it.
  8. Birthday thread

    Happy belated 23rd birthday to our @Akshay, and I hope you'll have a good year ahead.
  9. My Fair Cat Review

    In regard of two (Problematic) releases, I decided to join both of VNs title (Kimiaogi/My Fair Princess and Noraneko 2 (TL Note: Neko mean cat)) so that we have 'My Fair Cat' as this week title. Anyway welcome to my VNTS Review for this week, and while I'm supposedly be excited seeing two moege releases and that the graphic is not too bad, it's just too bad that those two releases have some big problems. Although to balance it I like some of the updates that we get, so in case you quite disappointed with the releases at least you can look forward to the updates here. If anything at least I can say that this week is slightly more lively compared to the last week, and let's see what I can write for this week as well here. For the first updates, I'll talk a bit about the two problematic releases. While we should be happy that we finally managed to have Sol Press released Kimiaogi, apparently there's still some bug left. Namely that some text are still in Japanese and apparently some option in the menu are mixed up. I can only guess that they missed it during the QC, which once again proved that Sol Press may do the QC hastily in order to fulfill their promised release date. Honestly they didn't really need to announce the exact release date if they still didn't ready for the release back at AX (Especially if the date in question is in the near future), but I guess it's already happen so oh well. Anyway feel free to get Kimiaogi if you've been interested with that and have fun, and hopefully Sol Press release in the future didn't have the same problem like Kimiaogi. While granted that Kimiaogi release is problematic, at least I can still say that it's not too bad compared to Noraneko 2 in that it did have the sex scenes being censored just like the first one. Granted that they give the reason such as the lack of funds to license the sex scenes voices here, but I would say that actually they can just remove the voice in the sex scenes seeing that we have Mangagamer did remove the voice for initial releases both of Koihime Musou and Kara no Shoujo. Granted it's still controversial, but at least it still less compared to their sex scenes censorship. Other reason is that apparently Harukaze decided to change the brand to Tokyotoon and decided to deal with all age VN only just like Leaf, so they decided to released the console version of Noraneko duology. I prefer Leaf treatment then, in that they didn't officially localized their old releases that have sex scenes. Censorship aside, even with Noraneko 2 being uncensored I still wouldn't interested with it anyway seeing that I'll just treat it as the fandisc. Feel free to get Noraneko 2 if you didn't mind the censorship, and have fun. Other than the releases above, we have Lamunation release date announced and as for the date it'll be at 22nd later. While granted that obviously I shouldn't take the VN seriously because most of the time it'll have comedy and meme, at least the graphic is quite good looking so at least you can look forward to it if only for the graphic alone. We have Nekonyan gave us their monthly update here, in which I suspect that they may need to delay Senren Banka again seeing that it's still not at ~90% translated. I know that I should praise them to work diligently on that seeing they also work on both of Makeover and Hello Lady, but I thought that to fulfill the December release Nekonyan will focused on Senren Banka work only to be proven wrong. In any case, at least they already have new translator (Meru) joining to translate two side routes of Senren Banka, so hopefully the work on Senren Banka will going more efficiently and they'll manage to release it at December later. For the progress roundup, we have Senren Banka was at 65% translated and 60% translated, Makeover was fully translated and 78% edited, Hello Lady was at 90% translated and 85% edited, second secret project was at 40% translated and 35% edited, and third secret project was at 20% translated along with 8% edited. We also have Mangagamer gave us some updates as well, and as for the roundup currently we have Sideboob 2 finished the testing, Rance 01 was at 89% edited, Uchikano was at 70% edited, Sona-Nyl was at 40% edited, and Sakuramori image editing was finished so hopefully it mean that we can see Sakuramori in the testing soon enough (I look forward to it). As for their next release after Funbag Fantasy 2, most likely it'll be Imopara 3 in which it's a nukige. Speaking about nukige, almost forget that Cherry Kiss announced the release date for their newest nukige Nympho Monster Domination, and it'll be at 21st later (Same date as Funbag 2 here). From fan translation, we finally have Loverable past 70% mark edited or to be exact currently it's at 72.28% edited. For more progress, we also have Miotsukushi Omote was at 48% translated and Eustia was at 81.46% translated with Eustia's chapter was at 77.35% translated along with 68.06% edited and 54.24%TLC-ed. For usual update from Tsurezure in regard of Ginharu, currently we have Momiji's route was at 18.77% translated and fr the overall of Ginharu currently it was at 47.38% translated. Also apparently we'll going to have Trip take a break from translating Ginharu here and Trip did tell us that we'll not going to have weekly update for a bit, although Irru say that Hinata's patch release shouldn't be impacted or something like that (At least he did say that he'll make a post when Hinata's patch being released later). That's all for this week VNTS Review, and see you next week. PS - I did take a brief look on Sol Press updates (Their first one after a while), and I'll talk about it at next VNTS Review. As for what I can say about it right now, I just wonder when we'll going to see either Witch's Garden or Mirai Radio progresses (Or both) here.
  10. Tsurezure's New Project - Gin'iro Haruka

    Here's this week update, and Irru took a liking to Momiji's route here. Common: 100.0% Bethly: 100.0% Mizuha: 0.0% Yuzuki: 0.0% Momiji: 18.77% Hinata: 100.0% Total: 47.38% In any case, looks like Trip will take a break for a bit so perhaps we may wouldn't see the progress for a bit here. Of course they'll tell us whenever Hinata's patch released, so at least there' ls some reassurance. That's all for this week update.
  11. Arunaru not working anymore with mangagamer

    If anything at least he can translate what he likes now that he didn't bound by Mangagamer anymore. Also I think his translation on Haruka is not as controversial as either Rance or Suki Suki here (Especially the latter), so perhaps there's something that caused him to chose controversial translation choice (Whether it's forced by some people or by his own will I don't know).
  12. Well after scanning some video and VNDB tags, I still say it is. Especially if we know that Kure is the one who wrote Suika's first chapter, Evangile, and Sakuramori. Granted that Evangile did ended happily, but there's some heavier stuffs that happen in there and I'm guessing that there's no Evangile drama here (At least the parents is looking nice compared to the Evangile one (Especislly MC's parents here)). I know there's some different race drama and the life and death drama, but in the end I still say that it's one of lighter Kure's work if not the lightest here. Oh and I know that Imopara is also Kure's work here (Sort of), but it didn't count here because it's a nukige.
  13. Well I'm gonna admit that the premise is quite questionable to me, but in the end it might be the most lighthearted work that Kure did write here after Evangile FD (I don't know though if it's really true or not, but looking from the review it might be really the case).
  14. As for Meikyuu, I would say that it's still good to see that basically we have Yuuji's past being revealed. While for Rakuen, it have a lot of fan services would be one way to put it because to fulfill that the writer need to retcon a lot of elements from the character routes in order to compile what the fans want to see, so yeah I'll just treat Rakuen as fandisc here (It also help that the main route was not the continuation of any Kajitsu's route). I also like to mention that basically Rakuen here is already destroyed by Amane's route, seeing that her route is very conclusive and thus it didn't really need a certain character to reappear here. So in the end I guess Rakuen is good enough to be called as the sequel, providing that you just watch Kajitsu's anime and then jump straight to play Meikyuu instead of playing Kajitsu's VN. Also if you thought that the anime is very rush and that Yuuji solve the girls problem quickly, it's because FW want to properly shown on how Yuuji's solve the girls problems in single continuity and that they only have a season to do it. There's one more reason on why the continuity for the VN is really bad, in that it's simply because Kajitsu is a charage despite the girls have very big problems. While granted that there's a ladder structure in VNDB, in the end it's still not work because we can even see the last route (Yumiko) get a good conclusion so much that it didn't really need the sequel. I understand though why FW write like that (They about to face the closure back then), so they need to conclude Kajitsu as tight as possible. I'm still mind though, and I think it's been like that since back when they announced the sequel/FD ever since back at 2012. PS - By fan service of course I didn't mean the girls expose their skin or something like that (It's already given situations in eroge), but rather some things that the fans want to see such as action, girls interacting and show how they capable without Yuuji, and a reunion with a certain character (Yes I count it as fan service because we already know from Amane's route that they didn't ever need to meet to fully conclude her route).
  15. Lamunation! [Release is November 22nd!] by Love Lab

    Congratulation for the release, and perhaps I'll try this seeing that the graphic is quite good looking. It's also interesting that this VN is essentially also have GL story, and that our Kepposhi (Controversy aside) is like to write GL story if we look at his works. PS - After seeing that Erogamescape's average score Umineko Chiru EP 8 at 58 just because of the ending, perhaps it should be for the best to not trust the score from there anymore.
