  1. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    Official statement: https://sekaiproject.com/2018/08/13/official-statement/
  2. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    Some more information: At statement from Sekai Project on the Tokyo Chronos Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sekaiproject/tokyo-chronos-a-new-vr-mystery-visual-novel-game/posts/2262566 And in this thread Audi from Sekai Project noted that no titles has been dropped https://www.resetera.com/threads/sekai-project-visual-novel-publisher-allegedly-laid-off-their-entire-staff-today.61780/ So I guess they are restructuring their business, but this is still concerning.
  3. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    I don't want so spread any false rumors or misinformation, but there is a discussion on twitter that Sekai Project has laid off employees? Here are some relevant tweets: Apparently she worked for Sekai Project. I can't confirm this, since I don't really know anything about the people working for either of the translation companies but I don't doubt her. I am sure other people that a more connected in the industry can say confirm this. I am also unsure how many offices Sekai Project has running. I seen pictures of one of their office and I kind of doubt that they have many more. I am a worried about these developments and hope someone can share some insight here. To those that are laid off I want to express my sympathy and hope that everyone finds new work as soon as possible.
  4. Mangagamer Otakon 2018 Announcement

    Too bad nothing that really interests me. But it is a bit sad that Mangagamer didn't announce single title that is interesting to me this year. I guess conjueror's prophecy that will some time after the weak initial sales of Tokyo Babel for the effects to be visible, is becoming true. Oh well maybe next year.
  5. Mangagamer Otakon 2018 Announcement

    Doesn't the panel start about 5 hours from now? At 8:30 pm EDT? But maybe I got it wrong with the timezones somewhere. EDIT: This correction of 30min sounds really pedantic, but when I posted this I thought the panel would be 3 hours from the time of the post, because I fucked up with the timezones. So I corrected myself to sound really pedantic.
  6. I knew it! All those Steam engineers where lurking here to see if they could get away with this. But jokes aside it's good that it's fixed/changed again. And hopefully this is not a sign of what is to come with steam.
  7. Update: The titles that I listed above seem to show up for me again in the search function.
  8. Sekai Project Titles are also affected. I just tested it and titles like Muv Luv (Alternative), the 3 main Grisaia titles, Chrono Clock don't show up if you search them. And after searching some of Mangagamer titles, it's the same problem. Titles like Like Kindred Spirits on the Roof, Mutiny!! or D.S. -Dal Segno- don't show up in the search function. And from Jast USA I can confirm that Eiyu*Senki isn't showing up when you search it. I haven't looked up all titles but some titles show up just fine. (The Phantom Trigger releases for example or Tokyo Babel) They are also specific for games because the Muv Luv Wallpaper pack or the Kindred Spirits on the Roof Drama CDs show up despite the actual VN being omitted. I hope this gets fixed soon because otherwise its pretty bad. Or maybe this it's just steams new way to get the games out that they don't want to see.
  9. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    Those impressions can be quite subjective. If 5-10 people here say I'm not interested in X it can make quite a different impression. Even if it is less than 10 people. Compared to 2-3 years ago it could just be different people active on the forum. In any case I don't think Rance is any less popular now.
  10. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    My favourite announcement this AX has to be Harumade Kururu, followed by the confirmation of YU-NO and the announcement of Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi. MG didn't have anything this time to catch my interest, but you can't always get what you want. And while those titles aren't at the top of my most wanted list, it could have been far worse. The reason why some people are disappointed is just that the VN fanbase consist of many groups. Some want nukige, some want otome games or BL or chuunige and so on. And with only a handful of publishers and only a limited number of releases to distribute between those groups it's impossible to make everyone happy. In the end VNs are medium and in the same way that people aren't fans of all movies or all books, people are not fan of all VN. But that's just my guess. Overall I enjoyed what AX had to offer and look forward to Otakon.
  11. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    I honestly don't know. But I didn't want to go into that discussion here, so I decided to just trust VNDBs authority on the matter.
  12. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    Here is was Aksys had to show. They announced Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ the second fandisk of Code: Realize for release in 2019 on PS4 and PSVita. Trailer for the JP Release: They also announced Death Mark a Horror VN for PS4, PSVita and Switch. It is supposed to be "coming soon". JP Trailer: I have to say Death Mark looks interesting.
  13. AX - Anime Expo 2018 News & Announcements

    Did anyone catch Aksys panel or has a recap? If not I have to wait for them post their recap. Besides that Harumade, Kururu looks like an interesting title. But if I haven't heard good things about the VN beforehand I would have probably ignored it because the description doesn't sound like anything I would be interested in. Now I only need the to find the time to watch the Frontwing and Spike Chunsoft panels.
