  1. SakuSaku Info and Discussion

    I am Groot since 1990. The usual: shady and unconfirmed rumors from the "close sources" (i. e. Moogy and other "hey I know Makoto/Payne!"). I believe I saw some even here last year. They are obviously not that trustworthy but would at least partly explain the jinxed release.
  2. SakuSaku Info and Discussion

    They were suddenly retranslating huge chunks of it so not really. Though at this point I'm not even sure if Sumaga exists at all.
  3. Sakura Sakura is getting a Kickstarter

    You guys are fun and everything but I really doubt they have enough money and connections for your blockbusters yet.
  4. Sakura Sakura is getting a Kickstarter

    Well, the thing is: they actually did. It had a pretty long prefundia and some sites advertised it but nowadays it's pretty hard to get more mainstream exposure even for the KS of the bigger publishers like Front Wing or Sekai. Just how many news websites reported on Subahibi? VN KS is not something new and unusual like before so even these companies have to rely on their loyal fanbase they had a chance to amass. Plus SS isn't even something literally anyone has ever been hyped for before. Probably the best thing Sol Press can do right now is releasing that promised demo and striking a deal with other publishers to get a shout out in the updates of the big and succesful Kickstarters.
  5. I did skim through the comments on the train without reading much into them but they do say that it's purple prosy only for the sake of being purple prosy and impressing the reader. Without examples it sounds like a pretty weird accusation when we talk about Dies. And as for throwawaydiesirae, while the sentence itself needs some tweaking I really don't see anything wrong with a high schooler using words like aberration or liquidation which was his main point. Alas, the translation is indeed far from perfect and I'm just pointing several amusing things among that wall of text.
  6. I somehow doubt that even a single of those reddit commenters actually knows enough Japanese to say that the English translation is too "awkwardly flowery" when compared to the original. But the best part was that guy saying "he is still in high school, why doesn't he talk like an average kid!? What a clumsy translation!" Indeed, my man, indeed. On the topic, clearly the translation could be considerably better, but Light probably simply doesn't care enough about it to give the guys more time for the polish or release patches. They hired Regista to organize the process, which they did and did pretty well, and after that likely don't even communicate much with the West. Regista's job is done long ago and Light only cares about the fact that the game was released so seriously believing in post-launch support was naive to begin with. Plus they still have that 18+ patch to deal with. Oh well.
  7. There's so much wrong with this post that I mentally broke and lifelessly stared at the scared passersby for at least ten minutes.
  8. Otakon VN License Speculations 2017

    I too would be glad to see Fairytale Requiem announced but with how MG didn't even start their work on Sona-nyl yet, it's probably unlikely. If we also count the partners that got an announcement on Anime Expo the other day (Moonstone, Alicesoft, Circus) as unlikely then I'll just boringly root for Purple's Amatsutsumi, Propeller's Evolimit and Chuable's Byakko like everyone else. Would certainly be nice to see one of the recent big minori VNs but their announcement is probably gonna end up being the 2 chapter of Supipara which will "accidentally" gather enough funds just in time for another expo.
  9. Frontwing will localize Subahibi this year

    Apparently, it's not. Steam is well aware of it.
  10. Frontwing will localize Subahibi this year

    Obviously it's to sell their game on the by far most popular platform for PC games (Steam) with the least amount of cost and effort (only one "free" patch for anyone who bought the Steam "demo"). Otherwise you'd have to edit the whole game to be all-ages first which is a pretty difficult and time/money-consuming endeavor for the developer.
  11. Dieselmine is conquering the Steam xD

    Sooner or later we are going to have a huge media scandal with these blatant nukiges on steam, sigh.
  12. Sakura Sakura is getting a Kickstarter

    http://solpress.co/product/1/sakura-sakura# >Vol. 1 of Sakura Sakura Wait, volume 1? I wonder if their website just tags everything as a light novel hence the "volumes" or they are seriously going to somehow sell SS in parts.
  13. Cross Channel - Which translation should I read?

    Sounds like a perfectly accurate description of ROM if you ask me.
  14. MoeNovel saving us again

    Moenovel's business practices and overall attitude toward western gamers is so heinous it's almost art.
  15. MangaGamer 2017 Licensing Survey

    I still hope they'll someday "borrow" nitroplus from JAST =(
