  1. This is not my VNTS Review, but rather I kind of want to do my version of 'Top 10 best rated translated VN at 2017' for a long while, so here goes. Seeing that we already has Conjueror posted his video in regard of that subject on Youtube, I decided to make similar list here because personally I didn't agree with some of his choice. That said, most of my pick here was still similar to him though. As for the rule, no yaoi and otome here. Also I'll use Japanese VN name and add the English name for the alias. For the score I'll use both of VNDB average and Erogamescape average, and keep in mind that it'll be fluctuate at the future - VNDB average score was based on December 18th 2018 for the info. Let's see what I could write in this review here, and I'll explain the title in PS later. Beware of the spoiler when you play the opening. 10. Hatsukoi 1/1 (VNDB 7.43, Erogamescape 70) This is the first VN translation work for Tsurezure (Previously they scanlated manga), and I think they did the good job in regard of HatsuKoi translation because they're working on this pretty fast. This is the first translated Tone Work's VN as well, and as we knew usually they'll gonna have descriptive detail in regard of the relationship. As for the premise, it was very simple with the MC was forming cafetaria club with five girls. For the MC himself, the opinion from the reader was quite unfavorable to say the least. So much that the staff need to post apology video in regard of MC, which mean most of the people hate him because the MC could have some face palming action that caused the situation goes worse. Other than that I like it though that they got some vocal song from different singers in this VN, and apparently they'll repeat that feat in both of Hoshiori (Tsurezure planned next project) and Gin'iro Haruka (Ginharu). One more thing to note that this is the shortest Tone Work's VN, because it didn't span years in lengthy detail like at both of Hoshiori and Ginharu. 9. Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura Doki aka Saku Saku Love Blooms with the Cherry Blossom (VNDB 7.48, Erogamescape 70) As for this VN, well it did saw years of translation project that started as fan project first before the team decided to asked Sekai for polishing the translation, and Sekai announced that they help with the process back at AX 2016. Or if you want more clear explanation it was fan translated at first since back at 2014 before Sekai take it and announced the licensing back at AX 2016, which safe to say was surprised me because I was expected this to be released around that time as fan patch. Also even before released back at October, it was suffered the delay twice before finally released at October which caused by mismanagement between Sekai and Steam. For the premise, it's just a simple moege with a guy (Our MC) who take the role as some sort of relationship counselor (He's still student by the way) in the school who ironically unable to fall in love, so much that our MC did have bounty in order to make him fall in love with someone else (At 21,000 yen). The story begin with the MC encountering a self proclaimed love fairy who turned out to be shinigami, and that encounter remind MC of his past because he met shinigami in his childhood. So of course, we'll gonna have supernatural element here as well because of the obvious reason. The graphic was quite good to me at least, and I like that there's two opening for this VN with different tone (The 2nd opening surprisingly played very early because I expected that to be played at the midgame). 8. Wagamama High Spec (VNDB 7.50, Erogamescape 75) My first impression in regard of this was not good though, if only because of how the female breast was drawn (It's too big). But if you look past that art, actually this VN was pretty good because it show some comedy and good character development for the girls in which each girls did have their specialty. There's also another factor in regard of the developer (Madosoft) last VN in which it was Yakimochi Stream (Nukige like VN), so of course Wagahigh here was the major improvement from Yakimochi. The premise was the MC is a mangaka that was supposed to be the secret at his school, at least until the student council president knew that and sort of rope the MC to join the council in exchange of keep MC's secret. Turned out that the president was also the mangaka as well - and was supposed to be MC's partner in manga writing to boot, something that the MC learned after he joined the council. 7. Da Capo 3 (VNDB 7.64, Erogamescape 76 (R X-Rated version)) This one VN have some history with our Fuwanovel here, namely that there's first attempt of translating this by our founder Aaeru. From what I could dig, I remember that she tried to translate it by use the VNR in which it was quite divisive method even back then, because most people would amount that as machine translated. But even so she kept continuing with the project, and finally released the partial patch in which it was only covered the common route back at 2013. Seeing that, Mangagamer decided to C&D the project directly which obviously enraged Aaeru and she wrote some kind of the replies to Mangagamer. After that she was disappear from the forum and nowadays nobody knew where she is. Anyway, what's done is done and we finally get the release back at January last year (By Mangagamer obviously). For the premise, it's pretty much usual Da Capo so if you familiar with the setting then you should knew what to expect, although I would suggest that you better play the first side story because it was real prologue of Da Capo 3. As for the opening here, there's too much opening for this so I'll just use the one for all age version of R that was performed by fripside (It was help though that the first release for this was all age instead of usual 18+ version). 6. SeaBed (VNDB 7.78, Erogamescape 78) As for the scoring, since the number of votes was still very few this VN will be the most fluctuative one. As for the premise, it was very simple in which we got a woman (Sachiko) who has her lover disappear and from there she'll try to recover from the heartbreak that caused by the disappearance. Oh, and her lover here was the woman as well, so we'll gonna get some yuri VN from the first glance. There's more than that though obviously, namely that this VN also will have some psychological talk which should be happened because Sachiko herself go to see the psychiatrist. There's also another premise though, namely that you'll play through three POV with almost equal screentime so we'll obviously gonna have three MCs. The VN itself was a doujin one, so obviously there wouldn't be any voice like most of that type of VNs. That said, sometimes even voiceless VN could be good - see Umineko and Fata Morgana when it was first released at PC before ported to console, so maybe perhaps you better try this one to see the potential. The art was better than Umineko default art at the very least. 5. Miagete Goran, Yozora no Hoshi o aka A Sky Full of Stars (VNDB 8.03, Erogamescape 79) Honestly I prefer Pulltop to just release their Sakura expy (Lovekami) VN instead of this, not because Miagete is bad but rather the reason is at least people would less likely care to Lovekami even if they released it censored for overseas, and for the info Lovekami short VNs story were pretty much just an idol goddess thing. But too bad that's not what happening here because we got Miagete here, and as expected Pulltop decided to censor the H scenes which surely left a bad taste for some people here, although apparently this time Pulltop did quite acceptable job in regard of rewriting the script to fit the censorship (They should release all age version first in Japan though) and improved translation. I just hope that Pulltop will get past their infamously stubborn policy in the future, because nowadays some companies would provide 18+ patch for Steam version, and Pulltop could do that as well if they insist to release this on Steam. As for the premise, it was involved stargazing in which the MC was have some childhood friend who shared same stargazing hobby before they decided to quit that, and right now the MC was about to regain his passion in stargazing. There's also a plot to built a very big telescope in the common route, so more or less it's just like Konosora only with telescope instead of glider - which bring up that there'll be some technical talk in regard of stars. Oh, and like Konosora it also have the project to have the H scenes translated, so feel free to check the thread for the project if you interested and want to help. 4. Grisaia no Rakuen aka The Eden of Grisaia (VNDB 8.13, Erogamescape 80) Well I didn't quite interested with this, seeing that I just think of this as another fandisc of Kajitsu and they could just make it with Kajitsu only. It's interesting though knowing that Frontwing was broke back at Kajitsu development, so they pour their energy into Kajitsu as charage and they fumbled the continuity writing in the sequels because of the charage nature of Kajitsu. They also announced both of this and Maikyuu quickly because they probably still in recovery and thus need more sales, so the writing might be suffer because of the rushed writing as well. The anime sort of fix the problem in regard of the continuity that the trilogy had, but became infamous because it was rushed. Those problems aside it's Grisaia, so I would still like to think that this should be good if one want to see more Grisaia characters. For the premise, Yuuji was get caught and about to be executed or something like that. From there, it's up to the girls that he was rescued to rescue him back. Looking from the review, I guess it would be good if one was longing for having Yuuji do some action which surely get teased a lot back in Kajitsu, and also a chance to see the girl do the actions as well. There's also some cathartic factor which enhanced by a return of a certain character, so there's that. 3. Dies Irae (VNDB 8.34, Erogamescape 81 (Acta Est Fabula version)) I'm sure that everyone already knew this VN, along with another certain well known VN that released at 2017 as well. But just for the formality I'll write the premise in which case it goes like there's a group of Germany who involved in some dark ritual which involved absorbing the souls in order to strengthen themselves, and the only one who could possibly put the stop of the group was the MC (Fuuji Ren) himself. From there, Ren and the group would engage in very crazy battle with the world at stake. If it sounds cliche, then yes the premise is a cliche one. But the strength of Dies Irae was supposed to be the prose that was hard to be translated, and perhaps to allow the reader immerse in the reading. Although it got some infamy though because of that as well, namely that the prose itself was pretty long and roundabout at that for some people so it might be not for everyone. Oh, and there's also some charismatic gods who is managed to get some attention. For the release, I would suggest you to just play the all age version instead of 18+ version because Light messed up 18+ version (At least until Light fix the problem), because all age version provided more new contents to make up the removal of sex content. Oh, and I'll post all age version OP here. 2. Chaos Child (VNDB 8.49, Erogamescape 83 (PC Version)) Unfortunately so far it's for console only, so no PC version for now. That said, Committee of Zero promised us that someday they'll port Chaos Child PS4 translation to PC version, so there's that. Anyway, the premise was we have another serial murder in Shibuya which eerily resembled the one back at Chaos Head, which of course would be quite graphic considering that in the past Nitroplus was involved with Chaos Head. From there, it's up to MC and his girls teammate to solve the problem and ease the anxiety of Shibuya. Forget to say that the casts also have some kind of superpower. From what I read apparently the girls route was not quite satisfying (The girls good as eye candy though if that's the case lol), so at least it could be interpreted that the writing was more focused on the main story which is full of sci-fi. Oh, and actually this is more in line with Steins Gate instead of original Chaos Head. As for the opening, I'll post PS4 version since currently it was that version which available in English version. 1. Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~ aka Wonderful Everyday ~Diskontinuierliches Dasein~ (VNDB 8.70, Erogamescape 86) As for this VN we definitely have many history with this in regard of the translation, and this VN is another well known VN that I said back at Dies Irae. Long story short, it was started as TL Wiki project since back at 2012 before it was officially localized by Frontwing who expanded their business into localized the VN overseas. I think in regard of this they did good job for that, although there's a matter of censorship though (Not as bad as Pulltop because only the picture was censored, and it was quite disturbing for some people). As for the premise, it was in regard of the world which about to face the apocalypse at July 20th 2012, and this VN depict that day from several perspective - the beginning of Subahibi was deceivingly present this VN as yuri harem VN though. What make this VN was good was apparently some say that it could change of how one would view his life, although if one want to be more realistic it's a denpa story which is belong to a horror genre - some contents could be disturbing because it could be happen in the real life as well. In the end, while this VN was divisive enough I would say that you should try it once. Forget to said that Frontwing did add Germany subtitle for this, just like Grisaia trilogy with French subtitle. That's all for my top 10 here. In the future I'll try to write my list for 2016 as well later to show of how easy the VNs score was fluctuated in VNDB, and of course to compare the score difference in one year as well between Conjueror's video and now. Hope you like my post here. PS - As for the title, I just combined both of Chaos Child and Subahibi title into 'Chaotic Everyday'. The explanation is that the 'Chaotic' part was come from 'Chaos', and 'Everyday' was come from Subarashiki Hibi (Translator's Note: Hibi mean Everyday).
  2. Kokuhaku 2 Review

    Foreword - No VNTS at this week once again which mean the main page problem is still not fixed so I decided to made another VNTS Review here, and I hope that you'll enjoy it. As for this week, because I saw Deep Blue's review of Kokuhaku and of how much Suki Suki (Big release for this week) did have a gameplay heavily based on confession (TL Note: Kokuhaku mean confession), I decided to make the review for the 'sequel' which of course never there in the first place and Suki Suki casts here is far more developed compared to the 'prequel'. Welcome to this week VNTS Review, in which other than Suki Suki release we also have some updates from Mangagamer (Their last 2018 updates according to their word), alongside usual fan translations updates and Sol Press one. Let's see what I can write for this week as well. It's quite a pity that Carrion Crow Kickstarter was failed with they only managed to gather ~6,000 out f 10,000, although they did say that they want to re-evaluate the KS so perhaps we can see anther attempt from them to re-launch the KS. If they'll do that later, then I hope that their next KS will be successful. We also have Lamunation was at halfway translated, so be happy if you're one of the people who want to see the meme in Lamunation. In regard of Sol Press updates, we have Hitotsuba was at 90% translated along with 80% edited, Shitsuaru was at 23% translated, Onikiss was past halfway (55%) translated along with 20% edited, and Kimi to Aogi was at 725 translated along with 35% edited. We also have Muv Luv Photonflower will be released at 2019 later, but for now we didn't have much info other than they release year. To be honest, considering that the updates were very sparse and usually took months so much that I decided to not keeping the eye on that it's surprising that we saw anther Yosuga no Sora updates at this week, and the progress of that was surprisingly a lot with Akira's route was fully translated except the H scenes. While of course it's good that we finally can see that Yosuga n Sora project still active, the translator did say that he'll about to enter university so he warned us that the progress will be even more sparse in the future, and what I can say is that I just hope that someday it'll be finished seeing that it's almost 8 years since the team start the project. Anyway as for the current progress overall it was at 92.6% translated with Akira's route was at 92.51% translated and Motoka's route was at 63.98% translated. Other than Yosuga no Sora sudden update, we have Eustia was at 60.61% translated, Harugi's overall was at 36% translated with Miyabi's route was past three quarters (82%) translated and Branch was at 44% translated along with 42% edited, Watamasu was at 36% translated, Loverable was at 53.14% edted alng wth 29.7% QC-ed, 4,020 lines of Pure x Connect were translated, and overall Hoshiori was at almost halfway (49.79%) translated with Rikka's route was slightly past three quarter (75.9%) translated. That's all for this week fan translation updates. As for Mangagamer updates, we have both of Bokuten and Steam Prison were almost finished with the testing, Trinoline was finished the testing, Sona-Nyl was at three quarter translated, Sukehime was at 62% translated and 19% edited, Rance X was at 20.3% translated, Amatarasu was fully edited, Room No. 9 was at 60% edited, and the work for Sengoku's image and UI was started. As for Sengoku here, seeing that Suki Suki translation choice did get the flak and that the translator (Arunaru) did also responsible for Sengoku's retranslation, I'm kind of wonder whether people will treat Mangagamer version of Sengoku Rance as redundant release or not seeing that we already got it translated for nine years. Granted that they need to retranslated it in order to make it consistent with the new translation choice seeing that there's some terms that were translated differently between Sengoku and VI, but still. For the last update, it's the biggest one to me in which they'd already announced Full Chorus exact release date at January 17th later, so if you've been looking forward to play Yurirei with full voice go pre-order that from Mangagamer site. The biggest release at this week (And only release at that) is Suki Suki, in which if we remember was the VN from Chuablesoft that as we knew suffer the bankruptcy. As for the premise, it was in regard of the MC (Souta) who is quite capable at farming and cooking that manage to met up with some mysterious fairy and the fairy told Souta that he'll lost two things in the future if he didn't search the girlfriend. Obviously Souta here didn't understand a thing abut that, but regardless of that he decided to search for a new girlfriend seeing that he did want to get one. One thing that interesting to note in regard of Suki Suki is that this VN was quite viral. Although the reason was not for of how Mangagmer manage to release something from a bankrupt company, or whether the story did have contrast tone at some of the routes, or the choice that was surprisingly quite complex for a modern charage. Instead what we have here is the discussion in regard of Arunaru's translation choice, in which it's quite questionable for some people. Some of those were gratuitous Spanish and change onii-chan into dude, in which while granted those two changes were quite small, some people were still angry abut that and it's quite understandable. Well in the end what I can say is that perhaps you'll better try to enjoy Suki Suki without being bothered with the translation there, and have fun. That's all for this week VNTS Review, and see you next week.
  3. Yeah finally after two years in beta testing because of Chuuable's bankruptcy, we'll about to have it released at December 13th later. Here's the tweet from Mangagamer for the proof below. As for the reviews, so far there's none so it's quite hard to expect what we'll going to get from this VN. Although perhaps it shouldn't be hard to guess that we'll going to have anther moege here with one unique archetype that one of the heroine is former girlfriend of the MC, and that we'll have three full route and two side routes looking from the CG number (I may be wrnog abut this). I'll add the character and seiyuu info later.
  4. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    I decided to add the poll, so feel free to vote whichever the girls that you like. Obviously it wouldn't have Maya though, because she didn't have a route (Thanks to Chuable's financial problem). Oh and don't mind the dude thing in Chiho's name there lol.
  5. I know that Steam recently have sudden fit by removing Steam store page for HGB, in which understandably some of us were angry because of it. But before the news of the store page removal, we have a tweet that told us in regard of Nekonyan that almost finished the preparation for their two other announcements. Here's the Twitter from Nekonyan below. As for whether the announcements that they'll have, considering that they say that the announcements were came from the available partners it might be possible that we got Tayutama or Amairo if we want to aim big. Although keep in mind that those two were just my personal interest though, so I may be wrong.
  6. Finally we have HatsuKoi append patch finished here, and it mean that the time for Hoshiori project to begin has come. For the premise itself, we have the MC whose an improvement version of HatsuKoi's Yuuma, and more importantly the MC in question (Ryousuke) was come back to his hometown after seven years had been away from it. Other than Ryousuke himself is the improvement from Yuuma, tone work was also starting their trademark in this VN in which the trademark is their long writing in regard of the development, so obviously we'll gonna have a lot of lines (Around 200,000 lines). Also it's important to note that star will be the major theme in one of the route considering that we have 'Hoshi' in the title (That one route only will be obviously better than the whole localized Miagete, because it'll be uncensored lol), and the whole theme of Hoshiori is the dream for the future (Yume Mirai part) in which it'll depict the characters going forward to their future. Anyway, I'd been looking forward to this and obviously I'll be waiting until the route order announced at Tsurezure later. So feel free to discuss about the project here, although I'll mostly use this thread for reporting the progress though.
  7. Rice, what do you use it for?

    Well, you eat it of curse (Duh). Edit - I did mean 'of course', but yeah you can curse people by using rice as well (I just googled it now lol).
  8. Nekonyan's Possible Two Announcements

    As long as Sekai, Frontwing, and Mangagamer didn't sue Nekonyan for the insult, I think they didn't need to apologize to the three companies, or at least that's what I guess. That said, I understand though that if Nekonyan need to really use crowdfund then they should take a responsibility to their earlier word. Also while I think that we should be more positive in regard of Nekonyan, I didn't like when people did keep pushing his own opinion in regard of the positivity even if another party didn't accept it because to me it's quite rude even with the intend that the people have, and I can speak about this from my experience in another community when even the mod did say 'I'm okay with breaking the rule as long as I can see some positive opinion' or something of that effect. Or to put it nicely okay we can still keep telling positive opinion in regard of Nekonyan, but I would say that it would be the best to retreat when other people didn't convinced with that. Sorry for going a bit personal here, because the earlier discussion remind me of that. As for Nekonyan, while granted that recently they have down in regard of HGB delay that could be attributed to sudden disappearence of the translator, I still think that they did better compared to Sol Press though seeing that they managed to have two releases on time (Fureraba and Sanoba) in less a year - I talk about full VN by the way. To be fair, Sol Press probably did have more obstacle in regard of localized the VNs though. As for Pulltop and Sakura Games, I say that as long as they got some money, then they can keep going even if the staffs were not passionate to translate the VNs.
  9. I'm not quite skilled enough to make LN title, but let's see if I can try based on what I know here. 'I'm reincarnated as goblin and killed repeteadly by Goblin Slayer because I'm abuse orphan in real life' (Crossover with Goblin Slayer) 'I'm a handsome laborer who somehow have a fight with beautiful CEO before finally we love each other, and the next time we know we've become the king and the queen in another country with the GDP at 230 billion dollar' 'Is it wrong if my girlfriend also in love with my school desk and have a polygamy with it?' Yeah I'm not very good when it came with LN title, but as I can see it's indeed getting longer and most of those were isekai.
  10. Another update, and no need for much word here seeing that Irru didn't have anything else to report there: Common: 100.0% Sora: 0.0% Marika: 100.0% Natsuki: 0.0% Misa: 100.0% Rikka: 75.9% Touko: 0.0% Total: 49.79% That's all for this week update.
  11. Birthday thread

    Happy belated birthday to @-soraa here, and if you want you can treat Rikka's patch as your belated birthday gift later. Also happy 33rd birthday to our @Decay there, and I hope that you'll have a good year ahead.
  12. What are you playing?

    Finished with Misaki's route, and therefore I'm finished with Hatsukoi Sankaime here. As for Misaki's route while I did find her situation at the beginning is quite questionable for some people, in the end I did manage to take a liking to her route. As for Misaki, she was supposed to be Taichi's first love that reject his confession before moving out, and thus indirectly motivated Taichi to enter Kirigamine and set the story in motion. While the story in Misaki's route didn't as dramatic as Himeka, I'm very content with her route because her route here is the one that sort of resolved the problem at the end of the common route in detail, namely the disappearence of Rin. Like other VNs, in here we have three side characters. Those three were Togawa as best friend archetype, Fujisaki as odd girl archetype, and Senri as teacher archetype. Out of those three, Togawa was mostly just there being handsome and not involved too much with Taichi, Fujisaki's was sort of shoehorned into Misaki's route, and Senri here was have a lot of screen time in Himeka's route. So out of those three, it's pretty obvious that Senri here is the best side character because of her role in Himeka's route, and Togawa here is the worst one because his role was too miniscule other than provided a cafe to be the basecamp of the film club (I understand though that Windmill probably want to fill the slot for male best friend archetype, but I think it would be better if Windmill did add some info for Togawa like what's his hobby or his type of girl). Other than side characters, I think I can say that Sui's route here is the shortest one mostly because there's no drama other than usual incest taboo thing that was resolved very easily off screen. Although I understand though that the reader might find Sui's route good if they like blood imouto character, and more importantly a breather if the reader did read Sui's route after Himeka's. There's also a bit of translation problem and typo there, although it didn't matter much though because I can still enjoy the overall VN just fine. So in the end what I can say is that if you're Indonesian or can read Japanese, then you can try Sankaime here. Too bad that Sankaime here is still not available in English, but hopefully it'll be available in the future so that more people can read this. PS - As for Misaki's seiyuu, her name is Haruka Sora which as we know is the pseudonym for Eri Sendai. As for Sendai's role, some of them were Inaba Meguru from Sanoba Witch, Kouzuki Io from Dal Segno, Tomotake Yoshino from Senren Banka, Nijouin Hazuki from Riddle Joker, Otonashi Saku from Hello Lady, Suzuki Kana from Daitoshokan and Yukimura Suzuno from Witch Garden (Another Windmill VN). Also I like to note that Sendai here is also voiced Rin for the plot reason.
  13. Sanoba Witch Discussion

    Because we finally have the release for Sanoba (Well still about 12 hours though), I figure that it would be fitting if I open the discussion thread for this VN. As for my first look here, I like that two of the heroines did have magical girl like outfit so we could say that this could be the first proper VN that did have magical girl heroine, and I say this because Schatten was too much have blatant fanservice sex scenes (I wouldn't deny that Sanoba here was also have a lot of sex scenes though). Magical girl heroine aside, actually Sanoba here was more in line with charage though considering that we could have our heroines developed by going together with the MC, and the MC himself did have some special issue namely that he could felt someone else emotion like taste. Also unlike Yuzusoft other VNs, actually Sanoba did have very obvious main heroine which in this case would be Nene because of the spoiler reason. For the number of routes here, we have four full routes (Nene, Meguru, Touko, and Tsumugi) and one side route (Wakana), with some additional content that will be unlocked later that called Restart. As for the reviews, I managed to find several. One of those was from mod Clephas in which he did post five parts of his review at Fuwanovel blog. Another one is from Joyjason, in which he did give the score was at 7 and it's actually quite a good score considering that he also gave the protagonist score at 7, which mean that at least the MC himself was quite capable (Note that he was usually quite critical on his reviews). And for the third review, well he did say that the VN that a light read if you want to read some VNs that was not trying to do something epic. I figred that it would be better if you check the reviews by yourself in case you didn't really care about spoilers, so here's Clephas's (Nene's route, Meguru's route, Touko's route, Tsumugi's route, and Wakana's route), Joyjason's, and the third review. Here's the heroines of Sanoba below, and as charage personally I think it should be you first interest. 1. Ayachi Nene The 2nd grade idol (And the main heroine for the reminder) because of her outward appearance in which she was quite helpful and sociable, but obviously she hid the secret that was accidentally found out by the MC (Shuuji) in which she was turned out easily got aroused so much that she was masturbated using the table. From there Shuuji find out that her arousal was caused by the side effect of the contract that turned her into a witch (With stripperiffic costume lol) causing herself to be very embarrassed, and Shuuji himself was accidentally hinder Nene's goal. Obviously as the one who cause the problem for Nene, Shuuji must take responsibility to fix the problem. As for her seiyuu, her name is Tanezaki Atsumi although some people would like to call her Kirihana though because it's easier to said, so I'll call her Kirihana as well. For her role, Kirihana was did have works at three other Yuzusoft VNs as well (Masaki Gaillard in Amairo, Lena Liechtenauer in Senren Banka, and Mitsukasa Ayase in Riddle Joker), while of course she also did have some roles in other VNs such as Ousaka Sora from Hoshiori, Ruu from Sorcery Jokers, Fia from Amayui, Hachiroku from Maitetsu, and Ikoma Murasaki from Phantom Trigger. 2. Inaba Meguru The first grade student who is admire Nene very much. Even with her supposed flashy style, actually she was more in line with otaku because of her hobby of playing one person game (Such as otome, RPG, and first person shooter). It didn't help though that she's quite shy and thus did have a hard time to make a friend, and her current style was the result of her determination to get changed. Unlike Nene here, she isn't a witch. Her seiyuu is Haruka Sora, or rather I'll call her with her real name Eri Sendai even though her alias was quite well known in eroge though. Like Kirihana, she also did have some role in Yuzusoft VNs so much that there's a video that's show both of Kirihana's characters and Sendai's characters gathered in one video (No Meguru and Nene though), and her role in Yuzusoft VN were Tomotake Yoshino from Senren Banka and Nijouin Hazuki from Riddle Joker (Both appeared in the aforementioned video). Other than those two, her roles were Kouzuki Io from Dal Segno, Kusunoha Misaki and Rin from Hatsukoi Sankaime, and Otonashi Saku from Hello Lady. 3. Togakushi Touko The 3rd grade idol and also the student council president who was quite capable of handling her work coupling with her willingness to listen to other problems, although she was also did like to teasing others though. Other than that, apparently her family income was quite below average so much that she was need to do part time work, and more importantly she just decided to keep her cardigan that was burst out by the size of her breast because she didn't have money enough to buy another (Presumably). Like Meguru, she isn't the witch as well. Her seiyuu is Kaori Mizuhashi in which her name should be well known enough for Madoka fans. Her role in VNs were Kurokawa Kirara from Yumina the Ethereal, Fushikawa Kokoro from Majikoi franchise, Matsushima Michiru from Grisaia franchise, Kiba Mifuyu from Koichoco, Sawai Maya from Da Capo 2, and Clea from Duel Savior. 4. Shiiba Tsumugi Another witch that made contract, and this time her side effect was very different in which it'll cause her to vomit every time she wore cute clothes or act cute. And like Nene, obviously that side effect causing her much problem because actually she like to do cute things and wear cute clothes (Forgot to say that her witch outfit is quite cute). Since she couldn't wear the female uniform because it's too cute for her, she must wear male uniform in which it made her less cute although of course some people out there still think that she was quite cute even with boy uniform. While technically both of Nene and Tsumugi were rival because their goal was the same thing if we following old magical girl anime, in here they decided to work together. As for her seiyuu, her name is Matayoshi Ai in which she did voice Tsukishima Yuuri at Saku Saku, Amanogawa Saya at Miagete, and Hinomoto Aoi from Da Capo 3. Like usual Yuzusoft VNs, the heroines also did have usual image song and this time Yuzusoft decided to add different ending songs for each heroines, so at least it's quite apparent that Yuzusoft spent money from vocal song alone. Also like usual Yuzusoft VNs, the instrumental version of the heroines image songs was the leitmotif for each of the heroines. I think that's all for what I can write in regard of Sanoba for now, and have fun playing this later.
  14. Nekonyan's Possible Two Announcements

    About Kiriririri, let's just say that this meme should be appropriate response to your post here. I agree though that we should try to make this place not as wild as Reddit, along with 4chan as well even though it might be hard to do. By the way, about Kiriririri himself I think the mods were pretty much already got used to it and gave some appropriate warning when his behavior was cross the line, so you didn't need to worry about that. That said I understand though if you felt put off by the negativity, because you kind of want to run away from Reddit's negativity there. So in the end, what I can say is that just don't bother by Kiriririri's post (Just think of it as bad meme if you felt negative) and just move on, even if I'm not the one who should tell you this. And yeah Kiriririri's avatar is Toriumi Yuuko from Hapymaher FD in which it's Hapymaher's fandisc that was still untranslated. As for hard copy, while granted it's more expensive than soft copy and thus did have potential to bring more money, I agree with the opinion that Nekonyan here shouldn't be bothered by hardcopy because it would be too much effort for a new company. Also if we took a look at Sekai's case, we can say that most of their KS problem were in regard of the hardcopies promise which mean that it's quite difficult to do. Also if we see Frontwing cases, they crowdfund for every hard copy (Granted they sor of abused crowdfund as pre-order store, but still) which proved that hard copy need a lot of budget. As far as the company who managed to consistently produce hard copy, I think so far it's only JAST that managed to do it although it also came with other problem that they have though namely that their releases is quite sparse compared to even Sekai. In the end, I'll leave the hard copy decision to Nekonyan there and hopefully they already have some insight of how difficult it'll be to produce one.
  15. Favorite BGM/soundtrack of a Visual Novel

    Recently finished Hatsukoi Sankaime, and I did like the ending song so I'll post it below. Note that I decided to just link it to Bilibili site because there's no Sankaime ending video at Youtube. Here's the link to Bilibili site, and enjoy.
  16. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    I didn't know if personal translator choice can cause some commotion here, regardless of how suitable the choice it is. Anyway as someone who managed to finished Fureraba along with two routes at Chrono Clock, then this kind of the translation shouldn't be bother me. If anything, this commotion was served to strengthen my personal opinion that there's no translation that was free from the critics, at least from what I saw in VN Translation scenes so far. And therefore it's always to each of their own if we talk about the translation here, unless if we talk about the example like Your Diary or Sakura Games VNs in which case that we can say those VNs did have bad translations. That said, we still don't know though of how good the translation is to other people if we keep only talking that 'Oni-chan' was translated as 'Dude' as the example, so perhaps we should read the VN fully in order to find out. PS - Apparently Arunaru's dissing was started from 4chan (How appropriate) in that 4chan dislike Arunaru for not using the translation for the terms that everyone got used with it when he translating Rance series officially.
  17. Craving a good tsundere

    About Chrono Clock, currently I'm stuck on Makoto's route here so perhaps it would be better if I can replay it again in near future. As for the recommendations, I think Miu from Dracu Riot could be a good tsundere for you. Other than Miu, there's Esteel from Yoake, Riho from Deardrops, and Hotaru from Supipara. I hope that my recommendarions here would be helpful to you in case you still didn't play those yet.
  18. Hello Good Bye English Release (January 25th)

    Hopefully so, although for now we wouldn't know for sure about their reasons though. As for the news, here's belated one in regard of HGB from Nekonyan here. As for my comment well let's just hope that my old laptop here can run HGB well, because there's a worry that HGB might not run at low spec laptop from one of the post at their forum. Although if I may say something, perhaps it would be for the best if they can release the demo in the new engine, but I'm sure that they probably think about that as well. As for mosaic, well I'm pretty much neutral about this but good if you want to have no mosaic I guess. For the last word here, I'll look forward to January 25th later. PS - Since Steam did removed HGB from their store front, perhaps it would be better if I changed the topic title.
  19. Yeah finally we have the Steam store for HGB was finally opened, in which it's been delayed for a while here and ironically still manage to have summer release for Australian people lol. What I can say is that we should just expect this as charage with the MC focus instead of spy action VN, even though the premise was definitely make people expected that. If anything, at least this isn't Grisaia in which they need to rely on the FDs in order to resolve Yuuji's past. Anyway, here's the Steam store page below and feel free to take a look at it. Hello Goodbye Steam Store Page PS - I don't know if this is the good time or not, but I figure may as well try to open the thread about HGB here. Oh and I'll update the first post here with the character info later, and for now let's just say that the cast is pretty interesting. Edit (12/13) - I decided to change the thread title simply because Steam did removed HGB from their store, and apparently they'll try to explain their behavior about this at weekend later.
  20. Nekonyan's Possible Two Announcements

    Well I guess it's quite a hard choice if they really want to release the hard copy, because it mean that they must not adhere to their original policy for not using crowdfund. Although apparently it'll be for the last resort only, because they say that they'll eventually do hard release without crowdfund after two successful big release. In the end, I guess it's up to them of how they'll do it because they say that they'll leave it to the fan, and if the fans were disagree with crowdfund then they won't do that although in turn it'll take longer time to release the hard copy. Personally to me I didn't care much about hard copy, but if you want that perhaps it should be an interesting news. Back to topic, and as for the announcements in the end what we can do here is just wait and see for now. Hopefully it wouldn't took long time for the wait.
  21. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    I guess we can say that the director was probably still depressed after his company bankrupted, and thus he's became more cynical. Also probably both of the director and the writer did have some conflict when they made Suki Suki, simply because the writer and the director taste is different especially if you know that each people did have different taste in regard of the girls. Anyway, quite depressing note from the director aside we finally have Suki Suki released today, although I'm reported about this very late. Go get the game from Mangagamer site, and have fun. Feel free to discuss the VN here, and perhaps I should make the poll later.
  22. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    As for the CG number, it was at 1,669 CGs looking from the posted picture. Keep in mind that I may be wrong though. Anyway, we have Mangagamer did post another director comment in regard of Suki Suki here, and I did find that the reason of why there's no Maya's route is quite bleak knowing Chuuable's situation. Read the post here if you'd interested with it, and by the way it's the last part for the info.
  23. Helloooo

    Welcome to Fuwanovel, and I see that you took a liking to Akari from Soukoku no Arterial based on your avatar. I understand though, because back then Akari was one of two reasons of why I did attempt to play Arterial despite the messiness of the narration translation, and as for anther reason it was because the card battle gameplay in which it resembled Yu-Gi-Oh. As for the recommendations, perhaps you may try some title such as Root Double and Shibuya Scramble although if you want some lighter one, then you can try Dracu Riot. I hope that you'll have fun here.
  24. As for whether they hate Ginharu or not, I would say that for now it's just a conjecture so I wouldn't say that t's the truth for now. Also whether they'll have Ginharu as their next project or not, for now I'm content with Tsurezure did managed to finished two big VNs as of now (And would be three with Hoshiori later). If they really want to do Ginharu later then I would like that as well, but if they couldn't do that well it couldn't be helped here. For now let's just wait until Tsrezure finished with Hoshiori here, and let's see if they really want to continue with Ginharu or not.
  25. What are you playing?

    I know that I'm risking myself to enter your ignore list by quoting you, but I figure may as well comment on this. To tell the truth, I did find your attitude here is quite uncomfortable to me here if you've keep saying that you only saw the empty lines because you ignore it, along with saying some rude words. As for the ignoring user feature, to be honest it's not useful to me because you can still see the comment if you didn't log in (ie browse as the guest), and I can speak like this because usually I'm see the thread as guest, see which post that was worth to respond, and log in to write the response. Although if you're in a bad mood because of the notifications, I understand though because it was very annoying to keep seeing notification from someone that you ignored, and in this case perhaps it would be better if you just turned off all of your notification settings so that you wouldn't need to bother with any notification in the future. Either way, I just hope that you'll be better after taking a break there. As for the topic, I'm still at Misaki's route in Sankaime. Although seeing that there'll be Suki Suki release in this week, perhaps I'll try it later.
