  1. Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai patch out

    Like people give a shit about the translation being bad. As long as it's out in English, they won't care. Hell, there are still people who think they're truly reading White Album 2 by reading the TL. Not saying that this TL is bad. I haven't had the chance to look it over. Just saying that nobody honestly cares about quality in fan translations just because they do it for free, as if it's any reason to excuse a bad TL.
  2. Top 10 Visual Novel Betrayals.

  3. Anyone tried reading Majikoi with MTL?

    What else did you expect? People to sympathize with your laziness and lack of respect for the original text by forcibly butchering it through Google Translate? Get real.
  4. Hello again. It's been so long since I last updated you guys on how this project is going. Since last time, Ittaku's finished his side of the translation and Hasa will be working hard to finish his part. Now for the updates Translation Prologue - 100% (1791/1791) Main School - 100% (2691/2691) Miyabi Route - 100% (10854/10854) Shino Route - 100% (11335/11335) Tonoko Route - 100% (8709/8709) Branch School - 56% (3269/5846) Total - 57% (38952/68206) TLC Prologue - 100% (1791/1791) Main School - 6% (157/2691) Branch School - 3% (187/5846) Total - 3% (2135/68206) Edit Prologue - 100% (1791/1791) Main School - 6% (157/2691) Branch School - 53% (3076/5846) Total - 7% (5014/68206) We are still looking for a permanent TLC to work on this project. Please PM me if you're interested in working as a TLC for this project. That's all for now. I'm gonna update this whenever there's been some significant progress from now on, so the updates won't be as regular. それじゃあ、またね。
  5. It's not really the VN bubble that's popping more than the Kickstarter being used to help fund VNs bubble is popping. VNs have never truly sold well as a genre, but some titles still sell well for the medium nowadays.
  6. Fuwa Battle Royale - Resurrection -

    It's been so long, I can't even remember when I even died in this thing.
  7. Another name left the scene - RIP minori

    It sucks to see this happen as I find Minori to be a decent company that I can rely on for releases, but with their high production values mixed in with losing Mikage and Yuu Kagami coinciding with an apparent drop in quality in their releases (I can't say for myself since I haven't read anything they've released past Yorino, just what I've heard), this was gonna happen eventually, especially with their sales getting worse over time. This is gonna make a few Minori titles appear on MG's survey, that's for sure.
  8. A question to those who read untranslated Japanese VNs

    Because English translations hardly ever break 7/10 in terms of quality and licensing from 2017 onwards has sucked ass for the most part. It was specifically Anime Boston 2018 with Mangagamer's panel that convinced me I had to learn JP in order to truly enjoy the medium again. Like a month and a half. Finished the entirety of Tae Kim's Grammar Guide before starting with Umi Kara Kuru Mono. I found Umi Kara to be quite taxing and difficult. Tasogare no Sinsemilla was a chore, mainly due to a boring common route, but the language became progressively easier to read. I pretty much got grammar down during my 3rd finished VN in KareHana. I use a combination of Textractor + Chiitrans to read. My vocab still isn't that good, so I'm probably gonna be using it for a while. Through reading untranslated VNs, my passion for the medium has been reignited. Would definitely recommend learning the language as it opens up a ton of options for reading.
  9. About Himawari

    I wouldn't say that as those 3 are in my top 5 of all time and helped convince me to learn JP in the first place, but I do see your point somewhat.
  10. About Himawari

    Or calling it pretentious for having themes to its storytelling.
  11. About Himawari

    Having read Himawari and Himawari Aqua After, I will say that it is a continuation from Aqua's end in Himawari. It deals with the aftermath of Aqua's route as well as various issues their current relationship has. It's easily the best FD I've ever read as it doesn't feel like a complete waste of time (aka just there to add more routes and milk the series). However, it most likely will never be translated as Himawari didn't do well in sales. Unless somebody decides to most likely poorly fan translate it, I wouldn't hold much hope.
  12. Getchu Bishoujo Game Awards 2018 are out

    Extremely surprised to see Deep One on this list especially after the fiasco the episodic shit caused. Other than that, pretty much what I expected from this list. Glad to see a Lucle game getting into the top 10 and still bewildered at how people still enjoy Yuzusoft's mediocrity. Also, >NukiTashi being called a nukige omegalul
  13. VNs for learning Japanese

    Textractor is the best one out there right now. I use it in combination with Chiitrans as a parser for dictionary definitions and look up random words it doesn't hook properly online. Here's the git for it. https://github.com/Artikash/Textractor/releases
  14. VNs for learning Japanese

    Honestly, any Japanese reader will tell you to read whatever you find the most interesting. I wouldn't go jumping into a VN by Mareni, Masada, or Romeo right off the bat, but just pick something that will hold your interest and use a text hooker to help memorize vocab that'll pop up throughout your reading.
