  1. Light is considering to translate Silverio Vendetta and Senshinkan

    Silverio Ragnarok (the 3rd game in the series) was already in production when the parent company of Light Greenwood went under. Even in the statement of closing down they alluded to a plan to still finish Silverio Ragnarok, and that came true with the help of Ares, the parent company of Windmill. (They are also listed on the page for 1st and 2nd game but I don't what role they played back then, possible the All Age console releases?) At some point apparently also Nexton got involved in getting Silverio Ragnarok out. Silverio Raganarok released this year in April a year after Greenwood closed down and the Twitter account has been active all this time to promote Silverio Raganrok. We also know that the store of Light has been handled by Akabei Soft since Greenwood closed down. (That was in the statement when they closed down.) So in the end we don't really know who holds the licenses for Light games and who we are talking to on Twitter, but Light as we know it doesn't exist anymore. Masada and G Yuusuke are working on Avestan, the story that was supposed to become Pantheon. I don't know if the team behind the Silverio series is still around after finishing Raganrok for example. My guess is that we talked to someone from the Ares side of the Business that probably have the Silverio rights (maybe not alone who knows) and that's why the person said: That sounds like the rights to Senshinkan series are in different hands and that company doesn't have the means to do a translation. (In contrast to the Silverio series). But who knows. That is only my interpretation. At least we know that the rights to Silverio and Senshinkan are in someone's hands and they are considering translating them and looking for feedback. That is at least better than what we knew before and the rights don't look they are in limbo or in the hands of company that doesn't want to do anything with them. Of course that doesn't mean that anything comes out of this.
  2. A user asked the Japanese Twitter of Light (the creators of Dies Irea) about Silverio Vendetta and Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin or more specifically about both series and they answered in English. Here is what they said: https://twitter.com/light_staff_tw/status/1268532698336784387 and https://twitter.com/light_staff_tw/status/1268532937592537089 and lastly https://twitter.com/light_staff_tw/status/1268533041565220864 Since their parent Company Greenwood shut down last year, we didn't know if there is any chance for the Light catalogue to see a translation. So this is really good news and if you have any interest in these titles or titles like Dies irae or Fate/Stay Night, please consider telling them on twitter to let them know that there is interest! They also ask about ideas of how to make it happen.
  3. Anime Expo News Replacements

    I edited in the Sekai Project announcements. Once they tweet them out or make news post maybe I can link some more info but until then here is just a quick update. I hope I didn't miss anything. The stream also had Q&A section that was interesting as well as some update to some of their previous announcements.
  4. Anime Expo News Replacements

    Mangagamer is on a run this year. First Musicus! and now Jeanne at the Clock Tower two titles I am interested in. After not having much for the last few years this time I am very happy with their new licenses.
  5. Anime Expo News Replacements

    Anime Expo is usually the place where a lot of the VN Publishers drop their news, but this year AX is cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. But that doesn't mean that there are no news to share. Âge The first round of news came from Âge the creators of Muv Luv. They had an event live stream on July 1st that you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIc6XHZiDEY Announcements: Muv-Luv Photonmelodies♮ Release: Summer 2020 https://twitter.com/muvluvseries/status/1278506748706357248 and Muv-Luv Unlimited - The Day After Release: 2020 https://twitter.com/muvluvseries/status/1278510380961034241 I guess that this is Alternative Chronicles Vol.1-4 but I can't quite confirm that since I couldn't catch the live stream. Besides that they also announced the translation of the Muv-Luv Alternative manga. Jast USA Jast and Ninetail announced a Kickstarter for Venus Blood -Hypno- named VenusBlood HOLLOW for the international release. The Kickstarter should launch this Autumm. You can find more information on the official website: http://www.ninetail.tk/tde12/index.html https://twitter.com/Intl_Ninetail/status/1278741873306157056 Mangagamer Mangagamer announced an expansion for Steam Prison centering around Fin. https://twitter.com/MangaGamer/status/1278903093376270336 and Jeanne at the Clock Tower ~Jeanne a la tour d’horloge~ from Liar-Soft https://twitter.com/MangaGamer/status/1278903363569098752 Here is the website for more information: http://mangagamer.org/jeanne/ Sekai Project Sekai Project had a panel at the online convention KuroCon on this Twitch channel. (Maybe there will be a VOD later on the channel?) Here are the news posts on Sekai Projects website: https://sekaiproject.com/blogs/news/kurocon-2020-updates-announcements And on Denpasoft: https://denpasoft.com/blogs/news/kurocon-2020-updates-announcements Announcement 1: 9-nine-:Episode 4 https://twitter.com/sekaiproject/status/1279560338522824704 They hope to have Episode 4 quicker than the wait between Ep.2 and Ep.3 Announcement 2: Karakara 3 https://twitter.com/sekaiproject/status/1279560593712672776 Announcement 3: Slobbish Dragon Princess the newest VN by Whirlpool https://twitter.com/sekaiproject/status/1279561225416785921 They are aiming for similar release window as the Japanese release this October. Announcement 4: Please be Happy by Studio Élan https://twitter.com/sekaiproject/status/1279559820316565504 Official website: https://vnstudioelan.com/games/please-be-happy/ They also showed an free HD Update for Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star- and it's Fandisc Hoshizora no Memoria -Eternal Heart-. https://twitter.com/sekaiproject/status/1279558951713964032 Since this news round will be a lot less centralized than usual I am certain that I will miss some news, so please post what ever news I miss in this thread! I don't think Nekonyan had planned to attend AX, so I am unsure if there will be any news from them.
  6. Aokana Release by Nekonyan [UPDATED]

    Good Job Sony...
  7. ATRI -My Dear Moments- to be released on 2020-06-19

    Since ANIPLEX refuse to comment on the fact that they region-lock Adabana Odd Tales in large parts of Europe I really don't feel like supporting them at all. Here is the Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1094820/Adabana_Odd_Tales/ If they would at least acknowledge it, I probably wouldn't be as pissed off, but with them not saying anything... When I first heard about the ANIPLEX titles, I was optimistic since we got a new VN Publisher and the titles sounded interesting, but now I am pissed off when ever these titles are mentioned and ANIPLEX ranks among the worst VN Publishers for me personally. I would urge anyone to think twice about supporting ANIPLEX. If their method of region-blocking is successful (in that their games still sell despite it) I can see this happening more often in the future. (Since they probably paid less for the license in return.) And I honestly don't think the VN scenes needs any more problems. Sorry to mention this in your thread when your excited about ATRI, but I needed to say this. I won't come complain about it here again.
  8. YOU and ME and HER (aka Totono aka Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi)

    That is an interesting point. Spoilers for Totono and DDLC:
  9. On May 27th Sol Press announced in a Blog post that they will not license any new VNs and but are intending to release the titles that they have licensed. Here is their quote: Link: https://solpress.co/blog/803/where-we-are-and-where-were-going Then today after silently removing it from their website and being asked about it on Discord, they announced that they won't translate The Future Radio and the Artificial Pigeons. You can find the second blog post here: https://solpress.co/blog/846/news-regarding-laplacians-the-future-radio-and-the-artificial-pigeons I just wanted to share that information here. Personally I am disappointed with both news. I know that Sol Press doesn't have the best reputation, but with them gone there will be fewer VN translated in the future. I personally was looking forward to The Future Radio and the Artificial Pigeons. and Nukitashi, so I am especially disappointed by the second news. And it is a really bad look that they have to already walk back on something that they said 10 days ago. Even if a staff member explained on Discord that they said they where only intending to finish all announced projects. I guess that is just the reality of the VN translation business.
  10. Katawa Shoujo, the queen of homemade VN

    A few years back I read Hanakos route and from my first impression she was by far my favorite character in the game. I ought to read the whole VN at some point. In any case even now I still have good memories and a high opinion of the game. ( At least the parts I read anyway.)
  11. YOU and ME and HER (aka Totono aka Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi)

    I have added a simple poll. Even though I got spoiled on certain aspects of the story before hand (but It was my fault in that case), I still enjoyed the story a lot. But I think I would have enjoyed the story more If gone in completely blind, so If you can avoid spoilers I would recommend to do so. It is definitely something quite different when compared to the usual romance driven VNs, but that is what makes it special. It's really hard to talk about this titles without spoilers. But I can only recommend the VN to people that have some experience with VNs. I don't think it would work as your first VN. If that is the case I would recommend giving the title a chance. And in regard to the "tag discussion" in this thread, I personally don't enjoy that, but still like this VN. Overall I am continued to be impressed by Nitroplus titles. I guess now it's time to read DDLC?
