  1. Sekai Project 2019 Customer Survey

    I don't really trust SP for future titles tbh. I prefer MangaGamer a lot more with their titles. I also honestly prefer if SP asked which games would we like translated rather than ask for a company since I can't really think of some from the top of my head.
  2. Sekai Project sets a new low standard

    That makes sense that there's 2 branches of Sekai Project which help each other out. I'm also guessing that the Sekai Project in Japan was also the one that translated the text for the box of Wagamama High Spec including its fandisc. I nearly bought that too thinking it was an English translation, lol.
  3. This is an unexpected release out of nowhere. Unless I'm living under a rock or something... Looks like a vanilla story too so I'll definitely be reading this! Thanks for the translation!
  4. How many people cares for physical copies?

    In my case, I'd rather have the all-ages version just to be on the safe side. Customs won't (or shouldn't) have anything against you because of that. Even if they know that there's an 18+ patch online, it's still an optional thing so they can't hold a case because of that. Don't quote me on that though. As for companies that do this sort of thing, I don't think there's a lot of them. Especially from english distributors. As far as I know, I think only a few selected games especially the ones from Kickstarter would have the all-ages and 18+ patch solution. I know Mangagamer doesn't do that, otherwise I would have bought like 5-8 games by now. As a collector's edition to boot.
  5. How many people cares for physical copies?

    In Australia's case (where I'm from) custom just likes to do whatever they want when they check things. Once they see something related to pornography then they'll get on your case. If you're one of the unlucky ones, they'll open your stuff up and look inside it. That's what they did to one of my character figures, RIP for those who want it in mint condition.
  6. How many people cares for physical copies?

    I think like other games, they won't have anything sexual on it. Maybe a few panty shots but that's it. I mean, horror games will only have an eerie-type look to them with no actual zombie-looking person intimidating you. While a game about gore would have some guy holding a weapon with blood on it but it won't have any decapitated limbs or anything similar to that. This is what I normally see, anyways. On the other hand, if customs sees an 18+ game or merchandise with petite-looking girls or lolis on the front cover then I bet you they'll look into it. They'll probably even play them if they have time, lol.
  7. How many people cares for physical copies?

    I love getting physical copies because it makes you feel that you own the game by holding it in your hands. Whenever a game comes out as a special edition, you can bet your ass to the bank that I'll be in line to get it. Even if the stuff inside is only a toy or an artbook that you only look at once, I'll still get it. Visual novels on the other hand is a touchy topic especially in countries that like to censor crap. Although I do want to buy a physical copy of the games I like, I've heard horror stories of people getting their stuff reported by customs and banning them. I've also heard in some cases, that it can get worse than that. So yeah, in this case I'd rather buy a digital copy for an 18+ VN or just buy a physical copy of the all-ages version then download the 18+ patch. Better safe than sorry.
  8. Nekonyan's Two August Announcements

    That's interesting. So I was right about them being new to the scene. It's too bad that I would have never heard of them unless someone posted here in the forums. It also sounds like they don't use machine translation for their work so that's a good thing too but I'd rather wait for someone to make a review on it anyways. Thanks for the info!
  9. Nekonyan's Two August Announcements

    Hmm, I haven't heard of NekonyanSoft. Are they new to the company and do they translate VNs and sell them like Mangagamer? Either way, there is finally some Moege that look interesting for me to read. The big question is that will the curse for Aokana finally be broken?
  10. Thank you for this patch. I appreciate your work for the community in helping to restore half-assed work that main companies do. Also, thank you for adding a description on what's going on with this game's release. I was literally looking around to understand why this is going on until now. Even the other Maitetsu board doesn't have a description like this!
  11. Majo Koi Nikki Translation Project

    Oh cool, so your translation did get picked up. I was worried that it didn't and all that work would have gone to waste (I'm starting to dig fan-translations too). It's still nice to hear that your progress is going smoothly without any problems. Keep up the good work!
  12. Forgive me for my ignorance on what's going on but is it all right for me to ask for a proper explanation about what's going on here? From what I've read so far, it seems that SP is planning to release the 18+ version of this game by adding in the missing content for it. However, the rest of the content in the all-ages version will not get updated. That's how I understand it but I feel like there's more to it than that. If it's all right with you, could you add/update this in your original post too? It'll save me the hassle of looking it up on the situation
  13. Reading VNs on the Nintendo Switch

    Yup, definitely. VNs are quite popular on the portable consoles since I've always seen releases of them on the PSP and the Vita. Now that Sony doesn't want to focus on portable consoles these days as well as Nintendo being open to third-party titles, we'll probably be seeing VNs on the Switch a fair bit now. It may take a while for other third-party publishers to get on board though since many before were quite suspect about the Switch's potential and Nintendo's previous policy about it being a "family console". Some companies are already on board with ecchi games since we've got Senran Kagura and Gal Gun 2 on it. As for me reading VNs on it, I don't really mind. I sometimes use my laptop to read VNs before going to bed so if the VNs are on the Switch, things would be even more convenient. It'll be like reading a book, lol. However, I'd still have my policy that if I buy VNs on the Switch then the original game would have to be an all-ages version from the start. If the game originally had 18+ content which got cut for the Switch version then I would buy it on the PC instead.
  14. Interesting. Hmm, no Da Capo 3 but 1 and 2 are on there. Well, the most important thing is that.... IT HAS BLAZBLUE ON THERE!
  15. What kind of VN do you enjoy the best?

    I used to enjoy reading VNs with good plot narratives and characters but now I just want to play anything moege. At the moment, VNs are used to get rid of the stress, lol. That being said, I do like to play VNs where the main character is smart and can think for themselves. This includes solving problems, planning ahead or manipulating the enemy. With that said, I really hate main characters who act like idiots or stupidly act stubborn for the sake of their beliefs. If I play any VN that has that type of person then I'll drop it immediately.
