  1. EDIT 2 : prepatched release done by me EDIT: Got the patch download from http://www.sendspace.com/file/nx9u9d now I only need the game itself // so I found this awesome game http://vndb.org/v750#main and a dropped TL http://tlwiki.org/in...?title=Hatsukoi and a release of partial patch http://vndb.org/r5209 that is supposed to have Anzu and Yusumi routes complete (which are the only 2 I want to play anyway). However the DL on tlwiki is megaupload and DL on vndb is dead mediafire. Does anyone have the TL patch please? I could really use it, I don't need full release as I only want the loli route and the imouto route anyway. Thanks
  2. FAQ: Q: When will it be done? A: Once Mare walks the earth. Q: Will there be a partial patch? A: Yes. Q: What will be included in the partial patch? A: Everything that is ready by the time Mare route is done. Q: Will you also translate _____ route? A: Yes, every route will be translated. Q: Who is the best girl in the whole world? A: There are 2, Mare and Shinku. Update 2015 Mare route translated and readable, hacking done. We are however aiming for perfection. Therefore Mare re-TL/TLC ongoing, busy main translator schedule. High JP knowledge person would be appreciated to split some work with main TL. Update June 2014 Update April 2014: Update March 2014: Update February 2014: Update January 2014 Update August 2013 Original status on June 12 in spoiler: Info about the scripts: They are originally all in a single txt file editable in Notepad++, they have been split to specific parts (currently Mare prologue, Mare route, Yume prologue, Asuho route, Asuho H-scene). You can split the parts of the scripts to only take the parts you want to translate (for example if you want to do Mare H scenes only). If you decide to join, you will be given more info about how to do it, what to do with it and all that - easy. So if you are interested, respond here in thread, PM me here on forums or email me at [email protected]<script cf-hash='f9e31' type="text/javascript"> /* */</script> I am dame ningen (or maybe uchuujin ) and I can't do anything myself, but I will try to ensure the best communication between all the parties in the project. May the Mare be with you~

  4. note: this post is spoiler free for iroseka only, there might be some hoshimemo spoilers as the post expects you to have played that game. also please post all iroseka spoiler replies in a spoiler tag. Well, after a beautiful week of no-lifing and 76 hours of active gametime, I finished Irotoridori no Sekai and it instantly jumped to number 1 on my VN list, surpassing Hoshizora no Memoria. But how can it happen, didn't I say that Hoshimemo is the best thing in the world? Well it is, yet Iroseka is even better I dont make any sense? Well maybe its because I didn't sleep for 35 hours and played iroseka for 24 hours straight, on miminal food and water xD But I felt like I need to write this. Well before I start, I just want to say... if they improve AstralAir over Iroseka just like they improved Iroseka over Hoshimemo, I will be the happiest person in the world. Oh also note that I have not played fandisc of either games (ill be starting iroseka FD later), so this is comparison of the base games only (so very few H scenes [1-3 per char]) Anyways here it is: I will split it into categories and also add a numerical rating (even though I hate those), more information about the comparisons will be bellow this first table. Protagonist 9.5 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 9.5 Main true loli character 10.0 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Normal girl characters (routable) 8.5 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 9.5 Side characters 7.0 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Side character stories 5.0 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Common route: 9.0 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Normal girl routes: 9.0 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 9.0 True loli route: 9.0 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Choices: 8.5 Hoshizora no Memoria < Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Background music 10.0 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 Opening and ending songs 10.0 Hoshizora no Memoria > Irotoridori no Sekai 9.0 Voices 9.5 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 9.5 CGs and sprites 10.0 Hoshizora no Memoria = Irotoridori no Sekai 10.0 H scenes 9.0 Hoshizora no Memoria > Irotoridori no Sekai 8.0 explanation of ratings: Protagonist Both protagonists are easy to relate to and immerse with. It is hard to describe them without spoilers, but both are excellent with some very slight annoyance from time to time. Main true loli character Not much here to say, both Mare and Shinku basically make the game what it is, without them it would be your everyday average eroge. You will have fun with these characters for the rest of your life, if you decide to make them your wives or waifus. Normal girl characters (routable) I cannot say I disliked any of the characters in Iroseka, each girl is very unique and lovable. Just like in Hoshimemo. However in Hoshimemo there were characters with traits I dislike (Kosame, Aoi) and I couldn't fully enjoy interactions with those characters. Side characters I never before realized until I played Iroseka, but in Hoshimemo the side characters are fairly weak, it is probably the weakest point of the otherwise excellent game. You often do not expect excellent side characters in a VN, but Iroseka says otherwise. Which brings us to the next point... Side character stories Basically non existent side character stories in Hoshimemo are absolutely incomparable to the detailed character development and stories of side characters in Iroseka. Have you ever wondered about Asuka's lost sister in Hoshimemo, just to never ever hear about her again - well no need to worry in Iroseka, all side characters have a story that makes you care about them and experience emotions just like any other girl's story. And they have a very nice satisfying conclusion. Side characters overall are one of the strongest points of Iroseka. Common route: Iroseka common is arguably the best common route from any VN I've ever played. It was actually first time I cried during common route - and not just once. The separation to chapters, unlike traditional daily school life, makes it so interesting with a satisfying ending to each chapter. You feel satisfied after each chapter end and are looking forward to the next chapter. Hoshimemo has very cool and exciting common route, but there are still those "days" when nothing interesting happened. Iroseka improves on that experience by removing those parts and focusing less on the school part and more on the characters. The fact that the characters in Iroseka are slowly being introduced over the course of the first half of the common route is probably one of the factors that make the route so interesting. Definitely better than throwing all characters at you in the prologue and than not having anything interesting to introduce. Normal girl routes: For this I would say the 2 games are fairly equal. There are super exciting story routes, there are relaxing funny heart warming routes - however in both cases the other characters don't just disappear so you can enjoy the girl alone, it is often a community event (lets say playing a game) but with a focus on the chosen character. But all the other characters are not just forgotten and often play an important role in a route that is not their own. True loli route: It is hard to compare a split few hour true route in Hoshimemo (where you need to unlock the better [Mare] ending) and a 13 hour Shinku route. Even taking the first true Hoshimemo ending (yume), the emotional impact is just not quite there, things are being left open (mostly for the Fandisc) so even though the conclusion for Mare route is awesome and makes you feel awesome, the journey to get there is too short to invoke these emotions. True route in Iroseka is very long and specifically focused on the most interesting parts of the story, making you want to keep reading till the end (that's why I just stormed it in one go right after unlocking it). For me it is actually the best true route i've ever played, surpassing Little Busters true route. (but then again I didn't finish that many VNs with true routes). Choices: If Iroseka's way isn't the correct way to do choices in VN then I don't know what is. Instead of choosing to either be kind to a girl or be a scumbag and decline the girl completely (like in Hoshimemo), you choose the order in which you want to approach the girls. All of the choices make you return to the selection until you either exhaust them all or select specific number of events that can fit into the chapter part. That way you don't have to feel bad for declining some invitation or something, the route is chosen based on who you pick as your first girl and you will also get 1 or 2 special events for the chosen girl during common route, but no hours of unread content when skipping to a girl's route - once you've finished the common you've basically seen most of the events even with the other girls, allowing for a quick skipping straight to the girls route without unnecessary skip interrupts. Also there is like 4 total choice points so you can pick properly the girl you want while not being bothered by a choice every 10 mintues, worrying about messing up flags - here you just click the name of the girl you want to date xD Simple enough. Background music Nothing much to add here, if you loved Hoshimemo BGM, you will love Iroseka BGM, some of the parts made me at first very nostalgic and remember some Hoshimemo events, but later I discovered their uniqueness and assigned them to Iroseka events/characters. Opening and ending songs Hoshimemo wins here for me, the OP and EDs there are just too good. That is not saying the Iroseka ones are not good, they are still very good, but when comparing to Hoshimemo the OP lacks something. The first ED (for normal girls routes) is very nice however, probably my favorite song from the game. Voices Well what can I say here, except few annoying high pitched sentences (of children or something) it is exceptional quality. The voices really give the characters heart. CGs and sprites Nothing to say here, the art quality is just as awesome as in Hoshimemo, beautiful (foreshadowing ) backgrounds, variety of character sprites and their poses and expressions and mainly tons of event CGs. Pleasure to look at and definitely justifying full screen play. H scenes Well here I must give the edge to Hoshimemo, especially the placement of the H-scenes of the normal girl routes is sometimes not quite fitting there in Iroseka. But well there isn't much H in the first place in both games so most of these complaints are very minor stuff. Although Iroseka has one of the best blowjobs I've ever seen, and that includes comparison to high quality nukige (like oniichan sharing and the famous icecream blowjob). So all in all, this game is a MUST PLAY for anyone who liked Hoshimemo and probably even for people who like pure love stories and tearjerking nakige - there is many more tear inducing moments than in Hoshimemo. PS: pls ignore my grammar and spelling errors, ive been awake for like 35 hours now, I just wanted to talk about the game with someone while waiting for luch to finish too xD PSS: but remember, both games are awesome and in the end its all about love
  5. More like I didn't care about there enough to add the entry there. More exposure isn't really needed at this point, if there were any good translators interested in this, they could have easily found this topic and so they did - now there is one left and really busy with everything so its just slow. While it is nice getting messages from people sending best wishes and wanting to help, the hard reality is that without really good Japanese and English (not just Japanese to be able to read but to actually translate) there is no real use for those as "base" translation is already done. The problem is that although this is just a fandisc to a semi-moe game, it does actually have some serious stuff with quite difficult language, so less skilled translator won't be able to do those part properly and the really good translators won't join for a half moeblob game unless they are fans of the series - which Shin (the current TL) is. So just remain patient or learn some basic Japanese and read it, just understanding the game is not that difficult. Not only I mean the lines that are difficult to put into English but easy to understand, there is few of those in Favo games but well there is some translation workaround usually. What I mostly mean though is that when you read, you can afford to misunderstand lot of the lines such as descriptions and other expository stuff, it doesn't matter if you understand it as "The moon casts its light through the leafless trees" or "The leafless trees allow the moonlight to pass through" or something like that (misreading Japanese particles is probably the most common mistake that can change sentence drastically, swap subjects etc) since those lines are there only for the atmosphere and as a filler. But during translation you can't afford to make those mistakes, making it infinitely harder to translate than to just read (because well, when reading you decide what is and isn't important for you but translation is for everyone so someone who finds fun in small details like deep descriptions would have a bad experience if all those lines were mistranslated).
  6. Oh well I guess for people who are lazy to turn back a page I will repeat the status on this page too Yes most of the stuff is translated but since we were not satisfied with the quality, everything is being remade pretty much from scratch (well not really but it will take about as much time as if it was). And even though lot of the ichalove parts are fine as they are, it still requires someone to check them and currently all the people in the project with very good Japanese are busy with school and work so its not really moving much. On the positive side - hacking is figured out (in multiple variants actually) and there is even a fully working version of Mare route patched in, but it is not public as Mare deserves better~ So yeah, if you start today, you can probably learn enough Japanese to read the game with some tool assistance before the project is finished

  10. Happy birthday to our beloved Mare! Make her feel really good tonight
  11. Mare route: TL: 100% TLC/reTL: 0% Not sure how that helps but there you go~ Oh and all technicalities are already solved.
  12. would you say the posters should Cease & Desist any inflammatory posting activity or face the almighty Ban Hammer? (c&d brings back sad memories) Btw Kenin, you missed luch's birthday http://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/896-birthday-thread/page-51#entry305162 Hop on TS to rectify your mistake.
  13. But that's not what this is at all, games depicting racism are exactly that, they are just depicting racism not encouraging it nor fighting against it, they just depict it just like it happens in the world. Same way games can depict wars just like they happen, people murdering each other just like it happens. It doesn't mean you do those things. Besides comparing a hate towards a specific race or group of people to a consensual love that usually happens in the regular moege is not a good thing. Sure encouragement of rape and such is banned but that already is banned as well even while I was around. But this really is comparing hate with love.
  14. Yeah yeah, but I don't think laws in the US forbids the discussion. Images sure but as I said those were banned ages ago right after I left and there was nobody to defend the ban. But for text, there are still books about real child sex sold in the US so it must be fine. 2d girls are kinda like different species so its even more distant but I guess when having the discussions like we did about which H scene was good from oniichan sharing, it can come out sounding like its a 3d girl if someone reads it out of context... which is still not banned in the US as far as I know.
  15. Maybe its not problem with me nor you, but the country you live in, the article in my first post is a prime example. But lets not get into politics There are none but hey, our galleries are filled with much more 3d looking naked children and its fine xD So I guess people here understand that art is art, videogames are videogames and can be part of art and freedom of speech is kinda important (after we didn't have it for like half a century). So I guess its not as terrible country as I think it is, but still Luchland seems much better xD
  16. No, that has been banned like a week after l left my admin post, I even got all of my images deleted xD What is now being banned is the DISCUSSION. But hey, freedom of speech is for losers!
  17. Btw the definition of loli from dictionary is: Loli noun 1. A girl Steve considers to be a loli. We've had lot of discussion about this since some people call girls that are not lolis a loli, I wonder if there will be some judge on fuwa who will always have to contact me to ask if the girl in question is or isn't a loli Well anyways, I've shared my opinion so people who wanted it can read it and GL to members of fuwa on not getting your posts deleted. But yeah, Aaeru would be so happy to see that even text form of speech is being censored now
  18. Birthday thread

    Happy birthday to luch, the best former moderator on fuwanovel!
  19. Actually if you can hop on TS I can tell you more about it, its actually coming pretty well despite me only being able to focus on it so little (goal only few % reached). I reworked lot of the base script too as I got better at everything. Look forward to it but probably like 2016.
  20. Well the main difference now is that this is no graphical material or images, like sure i can understand catering to underaged users of the website etc by not allowing 18+ content like hentai images, sucks but its fine. But censorship of written text?!
  21. I think that idea is kidna similar to the game Hatred that came out recently, its kinda a bad game though but had these controversies because people didn't realize its just a game xD
  22. Yeah HS eroge is usually 2nd year which is 16, so kouhai heroines are like 15 and senpai heroines like 17.
  23. Oh yeah, isn't even 17 illegal in most US states (i think in Washington 17 is fine if I'm not mistaken). So eroge from high school is also taboo.
  24. And its completely fine, I just replied for the people who wanted my opinion xD Not that I post here anymore anyways to actually fight for some freedom, I moved ages ago xD ... UNLESS even this post breaks some kind of rule I don't know about, rip me
