    I'm currently a few hours into Tsukihime. Does it by any chance share assets with Fate? Some of the backgrounds seem identical to me, like the sitting room in the mansion vs the one in Hollow Ataraxia (where Bazett and Avenger hang out). Then again, I haven't read Fate in quite a while and my memory has always been kinda wonky, so maybe they're simply similar and nothing more.

    I don't think so? Isn't the BGs in Tsukihime photographs with filters on?

    Here's the BG you mentioned in FHA btw.

    I'm pretty sure there should be 'flora' instead of 'fauna' here. It's been a while, but I don't think there were any animals there...

    Haha, this one is kinda funny:



    Something like: "We couldn't really tell with Keiko's dad, he was really on guard." was TLed into "Keiko somehow got ill."

    Why? MG fucked up the Hapymaher translation worse than Sekai fucked up the Chrono Clock translation, and at least Sekai knows that Chrono Clock had issues, whereas nobody but me seems to be bitching at MG for their absolute butchery of Hapymaher. I know the people slated to do Amatsutsumi and I have every confidence it's going to come out great; meanwhile, it would've been the same team from Hapymaher butchering Amatsutsumi on the MG side. SP getting it is great news.

    While I wouldn't put the Hapymaher TL on the level of "absolute butchery" it does feel subpar, and I do think that Chrono Clock's TL is better. I've been hoping that if the Hapymaher FD gets an ENG release, it doesn't get the same treatment as the original.

    Anyway, both companies use several different translators and editors, and have released TLs of variying quality. The MG or SP name does not guarantee "shit" or good TL in my eyes, so SP picking it up doesn't make me more worried about the TL quality.

    How did you get that from that line? To me, she's throwing a jab at companies such as S****i Proje*t (censored to protect their identity) that charge a premium for sexual content.

    I'm pretty sure she's talking about making eroge with the intention to cut them and putting them on steam, rather than clearly deciding to make a 18+ game or not.
    I'm not so sure the writers and Japanese readers are familiar enough with the English market to make specific jabs at the practices of localization companies.

    question: whats is the first OP song???

    music room says its "straight ship"

    vndb says its "straight sheep" (which is marked image song)

    ill guess vndb is right because sheperd

    EDIT: a youtube search gives me a remiX song and a osu game on sheep while ship gives me no result....

    I've seen "Stray sheep" as well. Anyway the kana of the title is ストレイトシープ (Sutoreito shiipu) so people are guessing what it's trying to say I suppose. I'm doubtful シープ would ever be ship though.

    One thing that's been bugging me from that Rewrite route I mentioned in my previous post:

      Hide contents

    It's pretty clear at the end of the "paranormal" arc that Lucia's been fully aware all along of the fact that she's Asahi Haruka, so why was she surprised by the "don't wake me" message in the printer room early on in the route? She doesn't suffer from amnesia or multiple personality disorder, and there's no need for her to act surprised to fool Kotarou, since he wasn't there at the time.
    Was that all just a terrible and completely illogical plot device added to prevent people from thinking that Lucia = Haruka too early?


    As far as I'm aware the last thing you mentioned is how it is.

    Rewrite has to have been the VN that I've read were it was most obvious that there were different writers for the routes. Their styles varies pretty wildly.

    For a vn many haven't heard of and no particular advertising? Certainly not. The campaign results speaks for themselves.

    I was kinda suprised that there were so many people that hadn't heard of Irosekai considering how hyped I thought it was, but then I kind of realised that was like 6 years ago or something. I suppose it kinda has fallen of the radar at this point, unfortunately.

    Oh My God, that Yoshino music video in Rewrite might be the single greatest moment in a VN so far for me.
    Does anyone have a translation for the lyrics? I'm worried I might stumble over some spoiler if I try to Google it myself.

    Here's a subbed video, only thing you might have to look out for would be related videos I guess.




    1. After watching anime and reading VN's for a few years I ended up with a light grasp of spoken Japanese. Due to that, whenever I wasn't preoccupied I would end up puzziling grammar together in my head and such. So I decided to make a serious effort to learn.
    2. If you don't count when I was just learing through exposure, then probably like a month or so.
    3. The first one would have been Hoshimemo, I read a bit of it to test how well I would do. That was back when the fanTL came out around 2012.
      Since I hadn't learned much kanji then I had to look up almost every word, which was pretty damn tedious. There were also a few places where I just couldn't understad the sentences as a whole.
    4. I use ITH and an empty html page with a textbox + Rikaichamp and I really shouldn't because:

      More often than not I'd end up trying to read the furigana over the kanji compounds in the text hooker before I even looked at the kanji, even if it was a word I knew.

    As for 2019, personally I'm just hope that they didn't do any announcements for this year, and no I'm not drunk when I wrote this (I'm about to sleep though lol). The reason is that with many announcements I afraid that Nekonyan may not be able to doing well, so hopefully they can fully concentrate on their work at the announced title. Then again, if they want to announce something then it's up to them.

    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.

    I've been waiting for Mahoyo for like 3 years. If it comes to it, I'll jump onto translating Mahoyo only as a script using rudimentary Japanese knowledge and online dictionaries just so I can get the lore finally; then just release what I've got as a draft so someone else can handle the rest if they want.

    I really don't understand why people like Mcjon or Herkz from Commiesubs don't just release the script so we have a basis for others to start from if they want to do a full game translation. It's not like they're gaining anything by keeping the draft to themselves.

    The stuff Mcjon has translated are avaible as a partial patch, so it's not like he's "keeping it to himself".

    Checked NekoNyan's website, she is a first year at the same academy the MC is in, therefore high school. 


    So to clarify, she is not in middle school.

    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.

    The vndb page for the game has a very conflicting status for the "loli in question".


    It lists Koharu, "loli in question", as a kid in the body type but as being in High School. Whoever said something about her being a middle schooler could you please post your source? As the database says otherwise, her being in high school would offset some of the conflict.

    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.
