    Dropped all the inactive staff. Other translators have bailed once more. This project has gone back to only being 4/6 routes planned that I've translated and will be edited.  Once editing is complete we'll release a patch just of those routes and call it a day. Thanks to our editors for not giving up.

    So I read Ciconia When They Cry - Phase 1 over the last few days. I know it's kind of a stupid idea to start reading the first episode of a series that's just been delayed until the end of the pandemic (whenever that is supposed to be) for dubious reasons, but I was in the mood for a murder mystery VN without wanting to buy one so I picked the most promising option from by backlog. As it turns out Ciconia isn't a murder mystery, which I could probably have guessed beforehand, given the Sci-Fi military setting. So it's less of a sequel to Umineko in terms of subject matter, but rather tries to develop (and deconstruct, of course) some of Umineko's core ideas and themes. What Ciconia Phase 1 basically does is to put a character who somewhat embodies the "golden" solution Umineko proposes for its central idealism vs. realism conflict into a situation where, despite him being one of the seemingly most important figures, he is powerless to prevent a war that could potentially wipe out mankind.
    I read somewhere that Phase 1 is supposed to be Ciconia's equivalent of the complete question arcs in Higurashi and Umineko, which would explain its length (~25 hours) and complexity. It is rather heavy on exposition and introduces a lot of characters and factions.
    As for overall enjoyment, I'm kind of torn. It has enough really strong moments, but it can get pretty cringey at times, especially when Ryukishi07 tries his hands at social and media criticism. Tbf Umineko had its weird/boring moments as well, but at least to me they didn't feel as central to the core of the narrative as they do in Ciconia. Then again Phase 2 is probably going to take the story into a completely different direction than I'm expecting right now, so chances are I'm completely wrong in this regard.

    Dreamysyu reacted to Formlose Gestalt in Musicus! Discussion Thread [OUT NOW!]   
    This week on Thursday (April 8th) Musicus! the final game of the VN developer Overdrive is going to release. So I thought we could need a new thread with all information in one place.
    You can find the Mangagamer version here (NSFW!)
    https://www.mangagamer.com/r18/detail.php?product_code=1221&af=3a123f6214695bfacaa881bd3117c693
    And the Steam version can be found here:
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1418180/
     
    And here is the official Japanese website: (Where the translation of the game was originally "leaked" long before Mangagamer officially announced the title. ^^)
    https://musicus.over-drive.jp/
     
    The Steam version will be censored and the 18+ scenes removed. And there won't be any replacement scenes like there are sometimes with console All-Age releases. From what I heard it is going to be a fade to black with a sentence telling the player what happened.  But you can find a patch for the Steam version on the Mangagamer store page for Musicus.
     
    And on the Mangagamer Blog we got the first character introduction for the main protagonist. There should be more of those posts hopefully before the release.
    And if you want to listen to OST of this music themed VN you can get a taste on YouTube:
    The same channel has more of the soundtrack uploaded.
     
    Walkthrough:
    And for those that are looking for a walkthrough I have some general information from SSparks31 of the QA team for Musicus from the Discord. Although you could consider them a minor spoiler, so take a look at them on your own risk. The route structure doesn't seem to be too complicated so a blind playthrough shouldn't be a problem.
     
    And here is a the full english walkthrough/guide courtesy of threepwood007:
    And finally there is the Japanese Seiya-Saiga walkthrough: (Altough I would recommend the english walkthrough above for those that read the english translation!)
    https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=https://seiya-saiga.com/game/overdrive/musicus.html
     
    If there is anything I missed or that should be changed please let me know and I am going to edit this post.
    And with that out of the way I wish everyone a good time with this VN.

    Dreamysyu reacted to ittaku in How do you prefer these type of words/phrases (English) translated in visual novels you read?   
    Why are these even questions? Are there people who honestly want every single shikataganai to be translated as "it can't be helped" and every sasuga as "As expected?"  Really? I mean that goes beyond even rigid translation, that's picking the very first choice in a dictionary every time and nothing short of insane.

    Dreamysyu reacted to Infernoplex in How do you prefer these type of words/phrases (English) translated in visual novels you read?   
    1) I have no hard feelings about this either way, as long as it's consistent throughout the translation of the work. So if the TLer decided to keep honorifics, they better stay there till the end.
    2) Same opinion as with the honorifics. No hard feelings either way, as long as it's consistent and matches the tone of the character who's speaking it.
    3) Depends on context. In some works, you can get creative about this. I guess "tsundere" would be fine to keep, but where does one draw the line? At "mayadere"? "Coodere"? Luckily, I don't think I've seen these rarer ones appear in dialogue or narration of some VN, but personally, I'm not sure I'd keep these if I worked on a VN where they appear. Some of these "dere" variants aren't as well known as "tsundere".
    4) I prefer western order, for reasons.
    5) Definitely something that doesn't need to be always TLed literally, except in cases where it makes sense for the character to speak that way (which rarely happens, really). Not saying one can't use "it can't be helped" for it, but I usually rewrite around it if I see it.
    6) Same as with "shouganai/shikata ga nai".
    7) Definitely 100% liberal. And it's the number one reason I hate puns in Japanese. They're the hardest to carry over in translation. You really need to find something in English that would work in a similar way. I'm not a fan of TL notes, so I'd rather see an English pun here instead.

    Big news!
    Today I reached the end of the script, and that means, that first retranslation phase is completed .

    Now I'd like to check first few chapters once more, and then hand it over to the editor. @Plk_Lesiak - would you like to try editing it?
    In the meantime I'll try to insert Japanese text into Renpy thus making JP Renpy version. And then, when English text is completed, I'll add it.
    Also, I'll try once more to make upscaled/smoothed set of images, but this time I'll do this manually, just recoloring them pixel by pixel - in order to retain original's pixel art feeling. Those automatically smoothed images I showed earlier aren't good enough. And sometimes they're outright ugly.

    I keep procrastinating on this VN but now might be the time I actually go ahead and read it. That collector's edition looks gorgeous, especially with what appears to be six whole CDs of soundtrack? That's a crazy long OST.
     Pre-orders start on March 26th for both standard and collector's editions.

    Today I did Mio's h-scene. I think it's one of the better sex scenes in this VN (together with Ruri's), but translating h-scenes is nightmare in general. I feel sorry for whoever will have to edit that
    Thankfully, scenes in this game are short, and just one per heroine.

    words cannot describe how much I hate the fact that I have to read a dies irae in a certain order, 
    I don't like Kasumi and the fact that I am forced to start with her really sours this whole thing for me, this VN feels a lot like fate stay night, except for the fact that in fate I liked all the girls, granted this might be heresy to say but I didn't love any one of them but they were at least likable, unlike dis annoying b*tch, also this VN might win my "most disturbing CG art" personal award, probably cuz I usually avoid these kinds of vn's that are on the more... seinen... I guess you would say, side 
     
    I do hope that like fate it adds and unravels mysteries across all routes and does not just dump everything in the first route

    That's an exaggeration. The thing with Kiminozo is that it has a pretty messy situation when it comes to character relationships, so someone will br really sad regardless of the girl you choose, but that's different from having only bad endings.

    Started the final chapter in Trails in the Sky... First Chapter. This naming sure is weird.
    Anyway, the story started getting pretty interesting. I can't say I were particularly mindblown by it so far, but who knows, there's still time. The gameplay is fun. At this point I can say that I was absolutely right that I chose to play in the hard mode, since the normal mode would get very easy eventually. At the start I had some trouble playing in the hard mode and even had to grind for a bit, then it got to the point where it was still challenging, but not obnoxious, but right now, I feel, the game started to get a bit easy. Maybe I overleveled everyone a bit, lol. But I generally try to explore whole maps when I have a chance and complete as many quests as possible (though I still missed a few). Or maybe right now I have a lot of skills to choose from, so I can deal with the enemies more effectively.

    Are you talking about the Steam version here? I just learned that apparently the translation was heavily revised for it, and I'm a bit curious how accurate the current translation is.
    Anyway, I'm still playing Trails in the Sky, and I'm currently at chapter 2 of the first game. Overall, so far it's pretty good. The plot is somewhat cliche so far, but it still has time to change. Gameplay... well, I like it so far. I'm playing in the hard mode, and I'd say it's just hard enough to make the game somewhat challenging without making it tedious. I had some minor problems right at the start before I got used to the gameplay, but right now everything is going fine.
    The funny part: I found myself at thought that if the backstories of some minor and background characters were published in a short-story format, I would love to read those. 🙂
