    VNDB Synopsis
     
    What is this project?
    It is my great honor and pleasure to announce my translation project for August's Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki, which I've decided to render in English as you can see in the thread title. My project is tentatively called Operation Bellflower, after a plot point within the game. I bring it to you today because August 8th is an important date within the game. Also, it’s my birthday. Yay me.
    This project has been in the works for a while, and I'm excited to finally share it with you. I hope to create a translation you can love for this beautiful game.
     
    What's the current progress?
    All the script files and static images from the game and the fan disc are 100% translated. This includes all routes and side stories, and even the Easter egg on the title screen.
    Editing is well underway; you can check detailed progress via the link below. Silverlight has rewritten the lyrics for three of the four songs to not only sound better, but even be singable in English, and Light is hard at work with timing and KFX. Hacking is essentially done, too.
     
    How can I help?
    There's not really much we need help with at this point in time; we've got basically everything squared away. You can join our Discord server, where we post all the latest information (link below), including blog posts written about translation theory and other interesting aspects of the project.
     
    Who's on the team?
    Project Lead/TL - @DubstepKazoo
    Editor - /u/alwayslonesome on Reddit
    QC - Maribel#7777 on Discord
    Hacker - PerturbedPangolin#3792 on Discord (Formerly pdvt#0397 on Discord and /u/Kalazb on Reddit)
    Image Editor - @Darbury
    Song Subber - LightArrowsEXE#0476 on Discord
    Song Editor - /u/silverlight on Reddit
     
    How can I keep tabs on this project?
    I will, of course, update this topic with major milestones, but for the latest updates and discussion, you’ll want to join the Discord server. This is where the team will be working and where I'll make all major announcements.
    Here's the invite link: https://discord.gg/GyPVkqGEhr

    I have a question you didn't answer.
    By all means, feel free to post in this topic or shoot me a message, and I'll respond to the best of my ability. I'm always open to questions and feedback.
    Thank you for reading, and I look forward to your thoughts!

    Koyomi_ reacted to VampyricMaid in Axanael Translation Project - NOW RECRUITING (Demo Release Out!)   
    For the past few months, I've been tinkering with the idea of translating one of my favourite games, Axanael. While you may have heard of it if you were looking
    to learn Japanese through Visual Novels, it's considered a relatively more obscure title from Nitroplus' catalogue. It's not a particularly highly praised game, and
    it didn't even sell well as far as I know. Nitroplus themselves seem to prefer forgetting it, not bothering to give it any sort of digital release. It's a niche game for a
    niche crowd, one that I suspect doesn't totally overlap with a fair bit of people expecting a certain type of narrative from Visual Novels. It's not particularly likely to
    get a localization from JAST over any other, more popular, more highly received Nitroplus game, especially when it contains numerous references to Sumaga, a
    title that's been in localization hell for the past decade. 

    So about a month ago, I said "Fuck it, if no one else will do it, I will", and began translating the demo by myself. I love Axanael, it's a game that inspired me greatly
    ever since I first played it and the kind of thing that made me fall in love with Otaku media in the first place. Its issues don't matter to me whatsoever in comparison
    of things in it that make me love it, so I wanna do the best I can to bring it to more people I think could genuinely enjoy it. The problem is that I'm only one girl. One
    girl who's still a relative amateur in comparison to professionals who could do a much better job than me. Also, doing everything yourself on a game like this is uh, really
    hard, and includes skills I can't even pretend I know much about. I'm sure this will be visible in this demo release. But that's exactly why I made it.

    This release is rough, I've had to do all the translation work myself, so there's definitely stuff to be improved on. I know basically nothing about coding, so the typesetting
    and menus totally suck. I don't really like image editing, so I pushed a lot of that onto my friends (Thanks guys), who themselves can't do any of the more complicated
    stuff that's in this demo and the final game. I want to do this game justice, and I know I can't do that alone. So I made this demo release to hopefully get some people
    talking, get the word doing, and show them how devoted I am to seeing this through. If you see potential in this, enjoy any part of it or think you can improve on it, then
    I hope you reach out to me and help make the full release a reality.

    If you don't think you can apply into any of these roles, but still want to help, please spread word of this demo around! I want anyone who
    could possibly help with it to know. I'll be maintaining the patch for the next week for any big issues with it that I can fix (Mostly typos
    or big mistranslations that slipped under my nose), but after that I'll be done in order to scout people for the full project.

    Thank you for reading all of this. I hope you have a good day and enjoy the demo. Oh, and early happy new year, I guess!

    Koyomi_ got a reaction from rax in Hello there. Introducing myself, I guess.   
    Hi, everyone. Although I created this account last year, I guess you could say I'm new as well. I just didn't bother to use it until now.
    I speak Spanish, English and Japanese (I only started studying two years ago though, so i'm not THAT good yet) and although I technically started playing visual novels in 2014, I only started to gain more interest in the medium around 2019.
    Some of my favorite visual novels are Sakura no Uta, Kara no Shoujo, Totono, Danganronpa V3, Muv-Luv, Chaos;Child, SubaHibi and Sumaga. I'm also playing Muramasa right now and it's very good as well.
    I really like onee-san or senpai type heroines, my favorite genres would be Utsuge and Denpa and I'm a big fan of Nitroplus and Makura's catalogue. I'm interesed in Innocent Grey, Leaf and Liarsoft as well.
    My current favorite artists are NamanikuATK, Sugina Miki, Motoyon, Inugami Kira, Ooishi Ryuuko and Kannuki Yoake/Amamura Kekka.
    I do a few translation/QC things from time to time, as well as image and video editing (Mostly subtitles and/or karaokes). I also draw sometimes, although I haven't done so recently.

    Koyomi_ reacted to ChaosRaven in First OELVN kamige? The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass   
    So, the recent release of The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass went pretty unnoticed so far, but currently seems to get some attention thanks to a comment on VNDB. It actually has a rating above 8.5 with over 60 votes there, which is unusually high for an OELVN. There aren't even that many JVN's that high. It's a scifi mystery thriller that actually looks pretty professional. It uses NVL style, which I personally don't like that much, but if the story is good it might not matter that much.
    So, for everyone who isn't already jumping on Muramasa and looking more for a SciFi mystery VN in the spirit of the infinity series titles like Ever 17, this might actually be worth a look.

    You can find the game on JAST USA and on J-List. The game has been send to Steam for approval, but it seems as of right now there are no news on that front. If you preordered the physical edition you will get the digital key tomorrow since shipping is delayed with all that is going on in the world.
    Here is the opening:
    As a side note the YouTube page lists 05.12.2018 as the upload date for that video. It was just unlisted since then. (Really makes you wonder if there is  a Muramasa video just beside it is...)
     
    And for those of you looking for a walktrough here is a word from Verdelish the translator.

    She also recommends going for Miyuki route first.

    Honestly, I'd say go for it! Just this once, at least. I kinda know why she would suggest that but I won't say anything. Basically, if you look for a walkthrough, you will probably get spoiled, even from other results from this vn that might appear.

    Some pople seem to have access to the game now (it seems to depend on the timezone?) so if you are interested check out JAST USA website.
    Alos there is no Steam entry for those waiting on the Steam version, but the release seem to be on the 25th.
