  1. Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no 遥かに仰ぎ、麗しの [Pulltop]

    I agree with @Clephas. Shino's route is equally as good as the other other main school routes, and the reviewer has conspicuously left out details about Yuuna's route. To me, her is route is also excellent and stands out for being completely different quality to that of the rest of the branch school heroines, and even completely different tone to that of the rest of the game, with quite a dark story by comparison, but still has that uplifting resolution required of a nakige. Lumping it in with the other branch school heroines is ignoring another exceptional heroine route that is on the same quality as the main school ones. The branch school needs to be translated just for her route alone.
  2. Birthday thread

    Thanks a lot! It's a big one, and thus the first and last one I'll make a very big deal about online
  3. So, Kanon 2002 is not that bad

    Kanon 2006 is excellent. You're in for a treat.
  4. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2019 are out

    #2 is not exactly my favourite game nor sequel, and... I wouldn't translate it. Probably having a route of sorts for the best subheroine from the first is its best feature.
  5. In that case, I think you mean overrated, not underrated...
  6. It took me years to figure out why I found romance in movies and anime unfulfilling no matter how well fleshed out the courtship, confession, and couple evolution was until I encountered H scenes in VNs. It's the ultimate consummation of a real human relationship and pretending it doesn't exist when it is literally the reason we exist as a species and a story ending without you seeing it will be low level depressing and frustrating. Once I've gotten to love a heroine, I only feel satisfied if I get to H her in the story, and then I can put that story and heroine to bed (heh) and feel fully satisfied. Most western audiences wouldn't understand though, even though most of us will end up fucking someone in our lives, but that's more a function of the long-standing censorship and shame our culture has associated with sex.
  7. It's the same translation. NN bought it from sekai who bought it from the fan translation.
  8. That's correct, though astro has distanced himself from the project and his components (and one other translator's) have been retranslated, so it's just based on my translation.
  9. Clover Days Translation Project

    As some of you may be aware, this project has since been picked up by Nekonyan and will have an official release. Ruu \o/
  10. That's actually what I really think, but I like to portray the worst possible so that no one else can say it about me.
  11. I found it waxed and waned. Initially appealing, then the appeal died, then it came back. Quite sure it's the dirty old man phenomenon.
  12. As the oldest person here, I can say a resounding "no," but that could be me turning into a dirty old man instead...
  13. Looking for translation project

    We do, but that doesn't mean we wouldn't welcome another, as the new TLer is currently busy and it will be a while before they get to the project.
  14. Looking for translation project

    Come and try out the haruuru project. Happy to give you a translation test.
  15. Anime with ultimately satisfying endings

    Yes it's unusual isn't it? Unlike most comedies there is a weak plot/storyline throughout Saiki K and the manga author was dead set on finishing it. After the main seasons, there were a couple of OVAs and just now they released a 6 episode short season to complete the story. I was sad to see this hilarious comedy end, but I do feel like the author said their piece and completed the story in a way that said adding anything more would be forcing it.
  16. I'm trying to collate a list of anime series with those sort of ultimately satisfying endings that make you happy to have watched a series right through to the end, and the ending is complete enough that you know that a sequel isn't necessary to feel fulfilled. I'm only interested in shows with HAPPY endings, not kinda positive sombre ones, and no unresolved freaking harems. I want the sort of endings that make you feel a little depressed that the show is over but happy with the conclusion. The shows themselves don't even need to be awesome, but to have a very good ending which makes it better overall. More marks if they brought tears (of joy) to your eyes. Now I realise that people's opinions on what constitutes a satisfying ending will be vastly different from person to person and that's okay, but if you wish to debate the reasons something may not be ultimately satisfying, please put it in spoiler tags. Successful romance is a big plus but not essential. I don't remotely claim to have watched all anime ever so one of my main reasons for doing this is to find other shows to watch - since my bias is towards romances there's likely a lot of action shows I'm missing here. Here's a list off the top of my head. I'll add more as I remember, and I might add other people's to this top post if we start getting some consensus. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have! Here's a link to my completed anime that I can remember. My list is incomplete since I didn't start it when I first started watching anime 20 years ago...: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/MyAnime/?user=Ittaku&categ=3 The first on the list is not listed alphabetically because it's my reference for the greatest anime ever on all levels so gets a special mention.

  18. Anime with ultimately satisfying endings

    Okay it looks like I missed a few, and some just happened to finish recently, or I only recently watched them to move them to my list. The good news is there are quite a few to add to the list. Here's what I came up with. A place further than the universe. Angelic Layer Assassination Classroom (The) Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Hanasaku Iroha Hi Score Girl New Game! Nodame Cantabile O Maidens in Your Savage Season Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Re:CREATORS Sakura quest Ushio & Tora Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid WWW.WAGNARIA!!
  19. Anime with ultimately satisfying endings

    Not much of late, lemme go back over the last year and I'll add if there was anything. Here's hoping this decade will finally see the end of the unresolved harems.
  20. Tsunderes or Kuuderes Recommendations

    With two tsunderes and one kuudere, it's hard to see how you missed To Heart 2 (unless you just didn't like it.)
  21. What a shame. The script is so short it would have taken a competent translator only a few hours to have translate checked it. Sounds like a cheap cash cow for Fakku.
  22. padowo padowo xmas

    you're! Merry Xmas.
  23. That makes sense. I've modified my post to remove the link to it then as well. Still how much are they charging for this on steam? It should be a $1 release.
