  1. It is that time of the year and AX is just around the corner.

If you spot any errors or know of any other VN related panels, please let me know and I am going to add them to the starting post. With all the information out of the way, what panel are you looking for the most and what titles do you hope get announced?
  2. What is a newbie-friendly VN?

    I think accessibility is the most important universal factor. If someone is on the fence about playing an VN, having to apply patches and fiddling with your operating system to even make that VN work is a good way to make sure they will never even try. Themes are also important, but they are really dependent on the person. Some people want romance or mystery or action. Without knowing the persons interests it becomes difficult. The examples (mother, daughter & employer) would rule out sexual content in most cases. But with a close friend that doesn't mind sexual content that could be less of a problem. I guess the context is important here. Do you know the person or is it some stranger on the internet? Does the person at least have an idea what VNs are or is he complete new to this medium? Does he like anime/mangas or you would that be a turn of for him? And so on. I guess the less you know about him the safer it would be to recommend something without sexual content (like an all Ages version).
  3. Should one read MajiKoi before reading Tsujidou-san no Jun'ai Road or is it irrelevant which VN you read first?
  4. Sad news. The game looks interesting. I guess there is hoping that the bad reputation among the VN community is hurting them. Sure a random Steam user doesn't know about their reputation, but its still a niche market.
  5. Can you tell me where the second gif is from? EDIT: And sorry for the Off-Topic question. As for the main topic I don't feel qualifed enough to provide an actaully answer, but I heard the earlier 2000's thrown around before in this context.
  6. May I ask what is going on with the Human Reignition Project? It is disheartening seeing you guys work on different projects (Heart of the Woods and Highway Blossoms Remaster) when there is no visible progress on the Human Reignition Project, a game that you had a sucessful Kickstarter campaign for almost 3 years ago. I mean for the past year you have been talking about producing an new Demo on you Kickstarter updates, with nothing to show for so far.
  7. I wouldn't relax just yet. Who knows what comes out of them re-reviewing Kindred Spirits or what the follow up emails say. We really don't know what caused this to happen in the first place. The reasons behind this deicison could still be there and Steam is just paddling back for the moment before sending new emails two weeks later, saying the conent still needs to be removed. I would be nice if Steam could give more concret guidelines for what they want on their store, but since that is unlikely to be happening lets just hope they go back to the way it was before this whole thing happend.
  8. Highway Blossoms Remastered is live on Steam

    I don't know how much work went into this I would rather see them finish The Human Reignition Project. They had a Kickstarter for that VN in 2015 before Highway Blossoms was released and the The Human Reignition Project is still not out. Sure there are not necessarily the same people working on the Remaster and The Human Reignition Project, but still for the past year they have been working on a Demo for The Human Reignition Project that still isn't out while the original release date of entire VN was end of 2016.
  9. I am not sure if this is the right forum to post this, but I want to spread this information before the upload expires. Dark Eye Translations has been working on Kurukuru Fanatic and announced today to cancel further work on the title. But he uploaded his progress so far here: According to his information the title has been completely translated and he was in the stage of editing. (With editing about 10% done.) With zero experience in VN translations it looks like there are still some files (6 out of 364) that need translation, but still it would be sad to see this project die so close to the finishing line. Maybe trough increased exposure this project can find someone to still complete it.
  10. Otakon VN License Speculations 2017

    That's true but he also mentioned that he will attend Otakon this year. Obviously that doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be an announcement involving him, but I would not rule out the possibility. In any case I am rooting for an Evolimit announcement, or something along those lines. (I am still hoping for a Bradyon Veda translation someday...)
  11. Last year’s experience taught me that the titles that I am interested in are more likely to be announced later in the year (like Otakon), so my expectations are low. I'll still keep my fingers crossed for the usual Science-Fiction, Action and Chuuni titles.
  12. console exclusive vn

    Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro Root Letter There are rumors that Chaos;Child and Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO will receive an english PS4 release this year.
  13. MangaGamer 2017 Licensing Survey

    The best part for me is this: Especially the science fiction part, but let's not get my hopes to high. The top 20 doesn't align much with my taste, but I guess that is not surprising.
  14. Bloodborne

    It ended up being my favorite "Souls" game. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the lovecraftian setting. If you are interested in doing the Chalice dungeons, I would advise you to start them early (once you unlock them basically) because, in the beginning they are pretty easy but later on the became the hardest part of the entire game for me. If you wait until the end to start them, the first few levels will be pretty boring.
  15. Good to know. I will just wait and see what happens.
  16. Is it not a remake of the original game? If it is a remake of the original YU-NO, it would be weird to say that is has nothing to do with the original YU-NO. I am sure Nandemonai means that has heard good things about the (original) YU-NO, but not about the fan translation of the original title. So he is looking forward to the remake, to read the remake with a new translation instead. YU-NO and Chaos;Child are both titles I heard good things about, and that both look interesting. Can someone say something about the fan translation of the original YU-NO? Would you recommend reading the fan translation, or would you suggest waiting for the remake. (That we don't know much about.) Could you see a version without the ero work? I don't know, if it played an important role in the original. Regarding Chaos;Child I guess it’s time to read Chaos;Head without the Noah content. Since it seems unlikely that we get Noah at this point. Are there any differences between the console version and the latter PC version of Chaos;Child, regarding the content? Btw. I never heard of this german retailer, before but I guess that does not mean much.
  17. Darkeye Translations stops work on Kurukuru Fanatic

    Editing contains going through every line of translated (english) text, and correct (grammatical) errors, misspellings and typos. Also It contains making sure that the text reads good (flows) with means you must rewrite parts of the translation while containing the original meaning. I am sure that there more aspects to it than I said, but that is the heart of editing at least as far as I am aware. (I have no experience with editing and VN translations in general.) From what you wrote, I don’t think you have done that right? (Just for the sake of clarity. I am not criticizing you.)
  18. Darkeye Translations stops work on Kurukuru Fanatic

    @2KE1 You asked on reddit for the files that are still missing translation. The following files are missing in the completed folder (but are in the decrypted folder). 020700.scn, 140605.scn, 140606.scn, 320200b.scn, 360400.scn, 450201.scn So I guess they still need translation. But the last two files already are in English. So I don't know what is up with that.
  19. December 2016: The remaining VNs

    I am only speaking for myself, but I would be least interested to read impressions about Venus Blood Ragnarok. But of course play whatever you like, it's more important that you have fun while playing.
  20. Dies Irae Prefundia now live!

    Light has just released the English translated prologue of Dies Irae on their youtube channel! Now everyone can get a sneak peek at the translation. I am looking forward to watch this later.
  21. Finally here, Himawari -The Sunflower- released

    Just as a correction. Gare(jei) translated Himawari together with Conjueror. You can read about the background of the project on Mangagamers blog, where both wrote a bit about Himawari. Links: Gare's post Conjueror's post
  22. F/SN Tiger Dojo 15

    I am sure it's possible. I unlocked all Tiger Dojos in the RN version. Tiger Dojo 15 is in UBW on Day 3. It is also explained in the walkthrough section. http://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/706-fatestay-night/
  23. What is the VN that you guys most want to see translated?

    Muramasa Tokyo Necro Bradyon Veda And a whole bunch of Light's Lineup. (Senshinkan, Silverio Vendetta and so on.) Most of them are on my list because of their theme and/or setting. Also I am pretty sure there is already a thread for this.
  24. regarding Chusingura censorship

    Thank you Dergonu for taking your time to compare both versions and write about the differences! It's pretty helpful to get a impression of what has been changed.
  25. What are the 3 Heavens Feel endings?

    I recently played FSN, and gone through both ways described in the walkthrough here (for the Normal endings in HF) and they both ultimately lead to the same ending. Just what happens before the epilogue is different. (They branch off of different scenes during the final day.) So at least for the Realta Nua version there are effectively only two endings.
