  1. Happy Holidays everyone! Chapter 9 translation's finished. This marks (the TL progress) being half-way to the first patch release at 17 chapters. I checked, it's about 4450 lines translated with the whole game being about 20000 lines. Seeing as this project was started in March of this year, I hope to have the first patch by August or September next year. Honestly I'm just dying to polish stuff up and share it with people. I also might be looking for an editor/QC'er. The text is almost completely dialogue, and while it has some sci-fi-like supernatural, is pretty character-centric.
  2. I think with a level system you can choose your difficulty by keeping your experience to a reasonable amount and adding clearing restrictions. Level-scaling...if you do level scaling you might as well not including leveling at all, just getting more skills or locking progression all together. Nothing worse than leveling up and getting weaker relatively.
  3. I think most of us have no idea how to respond to your OP without becoming heavy or harsh, thus resorting to expressing ourselves with the 'lighter' anime face reaction.
  4. Wow, I had no idea that Ryakudatsusha was the prelude. Talk about genre shift. I have an admiration for dark stories which lighten up after time, so this has my interest piqued some more.
  5. Well, Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana's the only thing I can vote for (haven't read anything else that came out this year). For what it's worth, It's been awesome so far.
  6. Nope. Though I have seen 2 posting members who apparently live in my city.
  7. Wow the, first one is pretty adorable. Mimikko's, they don't draw me in automatically, but each type (I prefer wolf or fox) has its subtle and not so subtle draws (the type of ears + their appearance hints and what their nature could be like, which is a bit removed from normal human). Even oni horns is similiar. Though, the ears and other features usually need to work together with the character's general appearance to have an effect. Three Mimikko pictures. Third picture is NSFW (nothing explicit though) Artificially created being is just super interesting. (when
  8. Started playing 枯れない世界と終わる花. I have to say, the voice acting is awesome. All the comedy and moe are so much more awesome because the CV's are so expressive. I think this is the only VN where I've not mind leaving the system voices on. Haru's CV must be the same as Lavria from Eustia (which has been ageees). It's nice to hear her voice in a title where her character isn't a side-role and always stuck in a distressing situation. Some interesting imagery coming from the title. Took some time to realize what was weird about it. All four of the heroine so far are a hit for me on a mo
  9. I would say I like mahou shoujo heroines...but I'm not even sure if that's the case. A couple of these are cool/entertaining, but I don't love any of them. I guess I'll go for cold-blooded/pragmatic heroine. It feels good to watch resources being used well, if nothing else. I like characters who I can relate to, admire, or adore.
  10. Anything with an aura, presence. Strong fighters. Heroines who roam, or who have perhaps, at once point roamed the earth. A real magician. AI. The exoticism is something, for sure. But usually I like it best when it serves to heighten one's sensitivity to the relationship (as it is unusual). You know what? Witches. A witch could be absolutely anything. It hasn't been explored as much, plus even in a single setting, witches can be quite different from each other. But I think, part of exoticism is besides their different nature, and is just the fact that the things they care abo
  11. As for the steam page...... it's less grammatical errors, and more like an utter lack of appropriate English style. I actually don't notice it that much. When I'm skimming I'm not judging how it reads, more just picking up keywords. When I read it and pay attention, then it's terrible.
  12. You have to be invested in the character, or the VN has to do it in a way where the loss or the process really is something. Visual novel name: (The ending involves a showdown in space (the title also doesn't end with a vowel), if you haven't seen the novel and care, don't click) And the person in question is:
  13. What a article bait title. It's just obvious (well, always-present) communication strategies. Learn how to adapt to who you're communicating to.
  14. I think what you have is a strong feeling of emotion and admiration towards hentai. A person can share this kind of feeling for many different things, but to the outside person it's all very hard to understand. Don't underestimate how difficult it is for someone else to understand. Now couple that with the fact that people are often non-receptive to this. Basically, in most cases, its not a good idea to share(?) At the very least, don't push the issue.
  15. Probably this? https://www.patreon.com/posts/milestone-update-7298082 It seems like they are doing fine, the writer/director just has goals in order to put out jaw-dropping bg quality.
  16. Just because its being used widely for nefarious and asinine ends doesn't mean I won't use if it suits me. You just gotta not let the circle-jerk get to your head. Something like twitter doesn't work as a primary community, usually (how can you discuss/debate with tweets?). But it's nice to connect and share.
  17. Apologies for wording it unclear. The content of the dialogue would be like what the author plans the characters to talk about in a scene. What I meant by 'how the dialogue is presented' is how well that plan got executed and turned into a dialogue. All I'm including in writing is the technical writing ability: the ability to make narration, dialogue, and sentence shine. When I read 'story' in the OP, I'm thinking about everything else. Not just the plot or original idea, but also the characters, and thought put into character development and interactions. When I see a very skilled a
  18. Well it's not just plot, it's the premise, character development, character interactions (not how the dialogue is presented, but ,) the content of the dialogue, the topics it touches, etc.
  19. Ooh, bakumatsu..... I feel the urge to play it when it comes out just so I can have played two historical games based off the same event.
  20. I............dang, that's a good point. Haruhiro and co. from grimgar. (you can just really get into his shoes after a while....and you get the whole deal) It's been a while, but I also enjoyed Okabe Rintarou's perspective. That was actually quite good. I find it hard to remember male characters because a lot of them are trapped in the role of VN protagonist... The story has to have a bit of realism before I can identify with them.
  21. lol for veterans is the best click bait. Gets me everytime. Jokes aside... I don't usually carry a burning passion long past having finishing a VN, but I do still think strongly towards them and remember them either treasuring their existence and/or being moved by their actions. My current list is probably: Flourite from Komorebi no Nostaligicia {Her AI nature, frankness (素直さ), and amazing sincerity} Eusurize from Gurenka {The way she gives consideration to lesser beings than her. Even though she isn't bound by a knightly code nor is a particularly charitable person. Also he
  22. Congrats! Yeah, I also found the backstory in chapter 2 to be incomprehensible. About Ichijyou's attack, iuuno what is like Iuuno, read it 2 years ago. I think the fights excluded might be in the anthology addition, the Muramasa fandisk.
  23. That's weird... I tried translating a bit this summer, and after some fiddling I managed to get those tools working. If it's of any use here's the first 250 lines of Chapter 3 (TL'd and edited) from back then. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1CZ2Ai5gEW-RE1GZ0x5SUNHXzA/view?usp=sharing
  24. In the middle of playing 闇鍋企画 (combined sequel/fandisk to 魔法少女 and some other works). Not much to say, except I'm really happy to see the characters get more time on the stage. Some of the characters were hard to understand in their original works, in this title you get to see more of them. It has a lot of character interactions, some moving moments, but also a fair bit of amusing comedy.
