    Makes sense to me. I'll go ahead an unpin it, and we'll see how that goes. I doubt it would get buried fast anyways rn with the... lack of activity in other threads.

    Well since I'm here.
    Playing Chusingura 46+1 for the second time. Been a long time since I last played it. A long time since I played any VN at all tbh.
    This has always been in my top 3 VNs of all time, and that def has not changed.
    Actually playing the all-ages version this time. The official Japanese vita port is actually a great port of the game without butchering anything of the content. Even adds in a lot of new scenes, too. Pretty neat. So far I'm reminded once again why Kuranoske is the best girl and why chapter 1 is goat. On chapter 3 atm, and I do remember this absolutely destroying me last time so let's see how my feels hold up.
    Chapter 2 was already pretty rough with ... well, if you know you know.
     
    Anyways, if this actually gets me back into VNs I do still have 2 other Inre games I have to get to. Apparently they aren't nearly as good as Chusingura and bushi no kodou, but it's still Inre so I should give them a read.
    Edit: Too lazy to change my signature, apparently the last game I played was Tetsu to Ra w

    Dergonu got a reaction from Kajahara in キツネと私 - Kitsune and me -Yuri Light novel! - (FINISHED)   
    Hello ladies and gentlemen of fuwa! Today I will be sharing with you a little writing project I've been working on. Thanks so much to Forgetful Frank for agreeing to edit the book for me! When I started I was editing it myself, which is slow work and I often miss mistakes in my own writing, and so this way it should be a lot better for everyone involved Also, a big thanks to Melowbee for making the illustration for Kitsune! It's a wonderful confidence boost to actually have someone make drawings for my story!  
     
    On to the book:
     
    キツネと私 - Kitsune and me
     
    Summary:
    After spending half a day locked in her clubroom at school, Sakura heads home in the middle of the night, in pouring rain. Taking refuge from the terrible conditions, she stumbles into and old and mysterious shrine. Here she discovers a strange little artifact that she thinks may have been stolen from a museum. Wanting to get it checked out the next day, she brings the artifact home. But as the artifact ends up coming to life in the form of the ditsy, energic and completely stunning Kitsune, Sakura's life will never be the same again...
     
    Information on the book:
    Kitsune and me is primarily a comedy, focusing on the relationship between the main character Sakura, and her new guardian ... fox-girl, Kitsune Mimiko. When writing it I focus primarily on having fun and silly interactions between the two, and purposely try to use clichés from common visual novel, anime, manga and light novel works. It's a fun little project I recently decided to start working on, and it's not meant to be taken too seriously. The story offers elements of comedy, romance (yuri), fantasy and action. The structure is fairly similar to most VNs, in that it starts of fluffy and is riddled with mainly humor, and then it gets more dramatic towards the end.
     
    Also, note that this is written in English, though I use certain words and phrases from Japanese. Again, this isn't meant to be taken too seriously. Words such as bentou will be in the book to keep the essence of the "Japanese setting" and words such as "ne" will be left in Kitsune's sentences, as they are a part of her speech pattern and that doesn't translate as well into English in my opinion. I also keep Japanese titles when I see fit, like using Kitsune's name. For these parts, translations are on the side of the Japanese symbols.

    Heya,

    I used to be very active here many years ago, looking to catch up with the many wonderful people I met here but sadly lost contact with along the way. 

    A bit about me: I used to be a casual reader, did a few reviews for the website here back in the day. My fav VNs are Rewrite, Song of Saya and G-Senjou no Maou. These days I spend a lot of my time working (argh), playing magic the gathering (irl? woah!), playing table tennis and a bit of video gaming here and there when I have the time.

    Glad to be back!

    Confession, I haven't read and completed a visual novel, (outside of what I translate,) for over a year and a half now.
    Also I still have a beard. Beards are cool.

    Dergonu got a reaction from GXOALMD in Can Anybody Clear my mind about Grisaia Fruit VN and Anime?   
    It covers the overall story of the VNs, yes. There is no continuation after. (I won’t count phantom bullet or whatever as canon, fight me.) Kajitsu is extremely different in places, though, especially the endings. (The anime ending to Kajitsu is anime original and not a part of the VN.) So I’d recommend reading Kajitsu. The other two are pretty well adapted. (And in my opinion those two VNs aren’t that interesting anyways.)

    edit: to answer your question, I don't think there's an official answer. Some JP person guessed 春菜 (haruna), as it's similiar to usami haru.

    Dergonu reacted to Fiddle in It's Santa Hat Time   
    Ho ho ho, ho ho hoes; 'tis the season!
    If your avatar is the same as it was last year and I gave you a Santa hat for said avatar, it's time to change it. Otherwise, you may select one of the Santa hats and/or other adornments below, and I'll use my sick graphical skillz to put it on your avatar. (If you don't choose a hat, I'll choose for you, for better or worse. [Worse.])

    You know the rules, and so do I. But in case you have a poor memory, they are as follows:
    Make sure your current avatar hasn't already been Santified last year or a year before that. You can make a special request or ask for a Santa hat you found somewhere on the Interwebs, but it might be difficult to implement on your avatar. (Translation: I might be too lazy to accommodate your request.) Some avatars won't look very good with a Santa hat, either because the Santa hat is cut off from view or for other reasons. I probably won't be able to do animated avatars. If you get a Santa hat from me, I'll save your original avatar somewhere and @ you after Christmas to remind you that it's time to de-Santify your avatar. For every day beyond liturgical Christmas in which your Santa hat is still on your avatar, I will be angry and I'll probably keep @'ing you in a way that one could reasonably interpret as targeted harassment.

    I'm not 100% sure on how they do it, but I would personally think that scripting comes last, since you'd want the final draft of the text for scripting. Seeing as some changes could be made after testing, that's my guess.
    But, I don't know for sure in what order they do those two in.

    Dergonu reacted to ChaosRaven in Soukou Akki Muramasa is getting an official Western release on 24-th of August   
    Imho, H-scenes which are there for 'story reasons' are the worst. It essentially means their only purpose is for shock factor to illustrate brutal rape or abuse. Which in the end is just a bad excuse to appeal to fans of hardcore fetish sex. There are much better ways to convey love or drama than H-scenes, which makes them almost by definition optional and just for eye candy.

    If you want to clear doubts about the quality of your translation, provide actual samples of it for us to read. Scripts chosen at random, preferably. 
    As someone who just completed a job that was 1m characters long over about half a year, I can attest to it being impossible to do twice that in two months. Like, literally impossible.
