  1. Mangagamer and Sekai ACEN 2018

    I'm so excited to see Tsui Yuri/Sisterly Bliss get an official release. Can't wait to play it!
  2. I offered to QC this a couple years ago, but never really heard anything after the first few months. I'd still be interested in helping out, though.
  3. Bad anime with good openings

    Elfen Lied is a prime example of this imo.
  4. STARDEW VALLEY MULTIPLAYER PUBLIC BETA IS NOW HERE!

    Can't wait to spend another 300 hours on this game instead of taking care of my real life responsibilities.
  5. What does an editor do in fan translation?

    Considering I've just started my first fan TL project , I can't give you much advice regarding editing for VNs. I have done some other editing, though (a poetry book and some articles/synopses). Generally you'll want to improve the readability of the writing you're working on. You'll take what's written and polish it up. You'll fix errors, shift words/sentences around if it reads better, check that words mean what they're intended to mean (and change them if they don't), and make sure the writing is consistent (ex. the book I worked on had about three different spellings of 'Claire' to refer to the same person). It's important to keep the author's style and intentions, though- you don't want to just completely rewrite the piece based on how you'd do it. Also, I think you might be a bit young. Hopefully this doesn't sound rude, but I think it's a good idea to finish high school and take some writing/English courses at a post-secondary level in order to make sure your skills are solid. I'm also not really sure how many people would be comfortable working with a minor if the VN has 18+ content (I definitely wouldn't be). It's good to be ambitious, though, so I hope you succeed!
  6. Oh wow! I really need to catch up on it, but I do remember liking it. Between this and the Kase-san OVA, it's going to be an exciting year for me. And I mean, I guess there's also Citrus...
  7. Tbh it doesn't seem like the type of yuri I'd be interested in, but I'm still willing to give pretty much any yuri a shot since there's so little of it translated. Unfortunately, I could really only help in the English department.
  8. If there's no recommended route order, I usually try to go for her first and then finish the rest. If I really liked her route, I'll replay it again at the end so I start and finish with her.
  9. Inquiry for Dog Owners

    Based on personal anecdotes, they don't appear to be especially effective (and, as Tymmur pointed out, do little to stop wildlife coming into contact with your dog). We have a fence, though, so I couldn't really tell you other than what I've heard.
  10. What is considered "finishing" a Visual Novel?

    For me, it's thoroughly completing the VN- all routes, CGs, etc. The rare occasion where this isn't the case is usually because I find a VN too unbearable to continue any further. Either that, or I like one ending so much that I don't want to go through any others to "spoil" it. It's happened with Katawa Shoujo, DMMD, and Subahibi. It takes a few months, but I usually do go back to finish it, and then I just replay my favourite route again at the end. Of course, this is just my version of finishing. There's no one who's going to hold a gun to your head if you don't feel like reading through all the content. Maybe you like one route and you're satisfied with that ending- you could say it's finished for you then.
  11. Animes that made you cry? ;-;

    Anime that made me cry the hardest (in one big burst towards the end): Angel's Egg Anime that made me cry the most overall (basically through the majority of it): Haibane Renmei...really beautiful and bittersweet, and really hit some raw emotions. The Ancient Magus' Bridge also seems to be a strong contender, considering I cried at 3 out of 6 or 7 episodes so far.
  12. What Anime are you watching now?

    Haven't gotten very far myself (I think I'm on episode 6 or 7), but it definitely hasn't stopped being a tearjerker so far.
  13. What Anime are you watching now?

    Currently juggling JJBA Part 4, Yuru Camp, and The Ancient Magus' Bride. And by juggle I mean I watch a few episodes in one sitting and then totally forget about it until several months later.
  14. Moe

    I do like the aesthetic. I'm a sucker for cute things in general. In terms of anime and VNs, "cute girls doing cute things" is a pretty nice destresser because it's not really anything heavy or intellectual. You can just zone out and appreciate some cute girls. It is pretty hard to find stuff I actually like, though. Moe can certainly be used in serious stories, if done well. It can work to subvert audience expectations, or serve as a kind of 'cushion' for heavier subjects.
