  1. What is your favourite VN store?

    Well, seems there is some supposed leak or something that they are working on it, I don't really know though. Anyway I just use whatever company that TLd the VN's store if they have one.
  2. Nekonyan's Two December Announcements

    That seems unlikely though, considering if they don't announce anything for the entirety of 2019 (and nothing is delayed to next year) they would end up with maybe only Melty Moment left.
  3. Nekonyan's Two December Announcements

    That how it's mostly done I belive. Koku from Purple Software is an exception that come to mind.
  4. The stuff Mcjon has translated are avaible as a partial patch, so it's not like he's "keeping it to himself".
  5. Suki Suki aka If You Love Me Then Say So Released

    I think you might need to pick sleep after starting a new game.
  6. Hello, Goodbye Steam Storepage Removed

    The vndb description is claimed to be sourced from Nekonyans site but that particular part differs, so I guess Nekonyan might have made a mistake in the description initially and fixed it, but vndb ended up with the unfixed version or something.
  7. Hello, Goodbye Steam Storepage Removed

    The description does have the line "a student in Tenshudo's middle school department", but she is indeed tagged as a high schooler so it's kinda inconsistent.
  8. What’s the longest Visual Novel?

    Yea, Umineko is the first thing that comes to mind. I think Rance 10 is supposed to be ridiculously long too.
  9. f/sn Realta Nua content question

    It's an english fan-patch for the pc download version of realta-nua.
  10. It does suck for sure. Mangagamer did have that time when they got screwed over majorly and lost their payment processor due to one person pretty much. If I'm not remembering wrong.
  11. Sony New Censorship Of Everything

    I think it's more they've gone from no nudity, to any bare skin beneath the neck is unacceptable. They seem to be censoring swimsuits too.
  12. Favorite BGM/soundtrack of a Visual Novel

    Hanasaki Work Spring!'s ED is really nice imo.
  13. Hmmm. Well how about you imagine a movie that you liked, but all camera work is replaced by a static 45 degree downards facing camera 3 meters above each scene, for the entire movie. Nothing about the story or characters would have changed, it would still play out the same. Would your enjoyment be the same? Would that emotional scene still have the same impact if it's kinda hard to make out the characters expressions and body language because of the awkward angle? Would that blood pumping action scene be the same with you stuck up in the corner? The prose of a piece of writing serves a similiar purpose to what camerawork does for a movie, it's about the framing of the story and characters. It can make the mundane gripping for a moment. The fantastical, dry and boring. Compared to books, visual novels have a bit of a crutch for poor writing in the form of BGM, voice acting and well, visuals, the writing however still holds significant power, even should you not notice it.
  14. Fan Translations Are Nearly Dead?

    If you haven't seen it, this thread probably lists most of them.
  15. I was suprised I didn't see anyone mention this until now, considering how people go off on comparatively smaller issues with some of Sekai's TLs. The TL for Hapymaher and Magical Marriage Lunatics aren't unreadable, but they read poorly enough that it had a negative impact on my enjoyment at least. I also saw some TL errors in Hapymaher pretty much making someone say the opposite thing, "reappear" becomes "disappear", "unsuprising" becomes "suprising", "had me guide" becomes "I was guided". Those are probably noticable even if you don't know japanese, since they contradict the surrounding conversation and/or context. So it's a bit suprising they made it through QC and such. Overall I also quite liked Hapymaher though, and my opinions on it are pretty similar to yours.
