  1. This time Sakuragame decided to kill Hakoniwa Logic

    Just flagged their newest release for holding a raffle, since they are doing illegal things might as well just flagg them for it even though steam likely won't care.
  2. VN with a cheating route.

    Not really a cheating route though each route in Eroge! Sex and Games Make Sexy Games gives you an option to cheat at some point.
  3. Hakoniwa Logic has become the victim of the plague that is Sakuragame. As this unstoppable company continue all we can do is watch in horror as they rake in enough money from the chinese market to continue their goal of ruining VNs for the english speaking market. Btw here are some nice lines from their summary of the title Our protagonist, ,Wakui Arata is a student in the artificial city called Senba City. Senba City, also called Hakoniwa City, is a man-built city.
  4. Btw you say she likes anime and manga, what types does she like? For instance if she is okay with things like harem ecchi it is probably a lot easier to tell her than if she only watch things that have no ecchi at all.
  5. List of physical english releases of VNs

    I have now decided to add links to all the places the physical is being sold rather than just having one link, I will update this bit by bit so most of the list currently has just one link to where to buy it. This should make it easier for people to check the prices from the different sites if they want to get it as cheap as possible. I have also made a new blog on fuwanovel where I aim to cover news related to physical copies such as new confirmed physical releases or kickstarter reward updates.
  6. Sol Press just announced the Daresora series

    Well they just got a post about it on animenewsnetwork so I guess that should help the publicity a bit.
  7. This is a blog entry that will be updated as things happens until the end of the month and will have (ongoing until that time) From Frontwing there are two kickstarters for physical copies one for the physical copy of Island which has already been released digitally on steam and one for the first part of their new episodic title Loca-Love which haven't been released in Japan yet. The Island Kickstarter is already funded and to me it seems like it has some pretty decent prices for the physicals with 50US$ for the regular edition and 80US$ for the deluxe edition which is a large box with soundtrack and theme song CDs and an artbook, Island itself is 30-50 hours long acording to vndb by the way. As for their Kickstarter for Loca-Love things seem to go a bit slow in terms of funding, while it is rather recent it seems like the early burst of pledges is done and it currently have about 40% funding. As for my thoughts on the kickstarter for Loca-Love, well I think it has been poorly thought out. Since it is just the first part it is rather short (roughly 8 hours acording to the kickstarter) the price for the physical edition which is 50US$ is rather high. There is also a deluxe edition for 80US$ (going by earlybird price, if that sells out the actual price is 85US$) which has an artbook, tapestry, keyholder set, printed shikishi and the name in the credits and while it does have a lot of cool extras it just feels too much to pay for something so short. So the price for the physical for the first part of Loca-Love is pretty much the same as the price of Island which is way longer. I also don't think it helps them much that they made the kickstarter under a new creator name (Loca-Love) which means that it is less likely that people who backed their other kickstarters will find it. Moving on to Sekai Project or rather Denpasoft they have opened up pre-orders for physical edition for two new titles this week those two being Love's Sweet Garnish (vndb) and Hard Work (vndb). While I don't find any of these titles particulary interesting I do like that they have started to focus a lot of releasing physical editions through Denpasoft and not relying on Kickstarter for all of their physicals (if only they now can get better at quality control). While it does interest me that they have gone with this direction I am rather surprised by the titles they have picked. Both of them are short meaning that the extra price for the physical itself and shipping will be quite large compared to the original price and thus make buying them less attractive. Considering that MG only does physicals for titles that sell well I wonder how Denpasoft is going to be able to not lose any money on releasing physicals for these two titles. At the end I also wanted to mention that based on a tweet from Denpasoft it seems like they plan on focusing more on their physicals so I think it will be interesting to see how things turn out with them regarding physical releases. Venus Blood Frontier Kickstarter has now opened for those interested, the price for the physical edition tier is 66US$ though it is only all ages so physicals for this might not be the best. From the looks of it they plan on putting in a lot of effort into making it a good localization, while it isn't really a title that appeal to me I really hope it succeed. Considering that they seems to be doing things right with the kickstarter I think it would give some really nice feedback to the japanese developers of what we want from a localization if this gets funded. Another Kickstarter is the one for Seven Days which is from Fruitbait Factory. This has a physical edition available for 60US$ that include a visual book and one with a larger box and a dakimakura for 150US$. From Nekonyan there is the confirmation that there is going to be a physical release of Aokana. I know this was technically confirmed last month, but I wanted to mention it since it was the 31st and since this is the first blog entry I make meaning I don't have any for August. Then for some kickstarter updates, Memory's Dogma has promised free physical copy of Code:02 and Code:03 to those who haven't requested a refund, Shining Song Starnova has now finished the design of the box for their physical release and A light in the dark physicals are currently getting printed. Here are a few titles that may be close to getting sold out or have a limited time left for pre-order. Princess Evangile limited edition went out of print this month. Eroge sex and games makes sexy games only have two copies left on Mangagamer, but is available from Jlist and Rightstufanime, though I am not sure how many they have in stock or whether there will be reprints. Kara no Shoujo only has one copie left on Mangagamer, but is available from Jlist and Rightstufanime, though I am not sure how many they have in stock or whether there will be reprints. Nekopara volume 2 and volume 3 are said to be limited on Denpasoft, not sure how much stock they have left but will put it here on the list anyways since it can sell out at any time. There is also a limited amount of physical copies for Clannad: Side Stories at sekaiproject, it seems to be leftovers from the original kickstarter. On PS vita the physical edition of Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternate is being sold over at ricedigital and I am pretty sure that it is a limited run. As for backerkits that are still open there are A Light in the Dark, Alpha's Adventures and Sakura Sakura New kickstarters, Island, Loca-Love, Venus Blood Frontier and Seven days
  8. Regarding Horror Visual Novels

    I think it has to do with more people getting into visual novels for Moe and Ero content than those who do it for complex stories and horror. Simply the market for VNs itself appealing to what most people get into VNs for and want from VNs.
  9. Thoughts on Fortissimo?

    Maybe you can complain to steam that SakuraGame are doing false adverticement by claming it to be in english while not really being in actual english?
  10. https://denpasoft.com/collections/newest-releases/products/preorder-hard-work-physical-release I find it interesting that Denpasoft recently started focusing a lot on physical copies and I like that they are doing it, despite not really liking SP/Denpasoft that much. Regarding the VN itself I am not really interested so I don't plan on picking it up. Also while I like that they are going for physical edition I wonder how smart it is especially with the titles they have so far. Mangagamer only does physicals for VNs that have sold a lot, Nekonyan have only confirmed physicals for their most popular titles while the others are to be determined while jast have Jlist to rely on. As for the titles that Denpasoft have recently they have all been short VNs which makes it less appealing to buy due to extra cost of the physicals due to having to be produced and shipping which compared to the price of a longer more expensive VN is not too bad but can be quite costly compared to the price of shorter VNs. The VNs they have picked aside from Nekopara are also new VNs without any hype behind them, I don't really know how the physicals for these won't be comerical fails. What I think their focus should be on is their larger titles like their upcoming The Ditzy Demons Are in Love With Me (which I assume is going to get a physical release), as well as maybe some of their longer releases like Wagamama High Spec and Saku Saku: Love Blooms with the Cherry Blossoms.
  11. Seven Days collector's edition on Kickstarter

    Added the kickstarter link to my list of physical english releases of VNs
  12. Kickstarter up for Loca-Love: My Cute Roommate

    Personally I think they should just have had a kickstarter for a complete box at the end rather than splitting it up.
  13. Frontwing released their kickstarter for Loca-Love: My Cute Roommate a few hours ago. This is another one of their kickstarters to get funds for physical editions rather than the visual novel itself. As for the VN itself, they have confirmed it to be episodic with each volume roughly taking the same length as a volume of Corona Blossom. As for my opinion on the kickstarter, well while I am a huge fan of physical releases and I enjoyed the trial for Loca-Love the prices for the physical edition is just way too much for me to justify buying such a short VN.
  14. I guess the smaller publishers will be the ones to take the risk in hopes of getting publicity while the larger ones will end up playing it safe like Mangagamer and wait.
  15. Memes are dead, thank the EU

    Considering how Youtube has used their algorithms so far I would assume that the horrible things will be implemented in not too long.
