  1. Taking a sabbatical.

    Heh heh... You guys are all right. See ya around.
  2. Taking a sabbatical.

    Compatibility issues. Until we meet again...
  3. Who would you miss?

    Also, if your name is not mentioned anywhere in this thread, consider that a notice to GTFO. (I did not say this. I am not here.)
  4. I still don't see why it needs to be done manually, though. Just have the system compute your new friends for you based on the number of likes to their posts and the number of PM's you have exchanged.
  5. a231's presentation

    Alex-kun Of course I can discuss things like VNs or Japanese language, but I'd rather talk about blowing things up I once blew up a DVD player
  6. Yea, me too, I don't recall ever getting a notification of that. Either it's turned off, or my Friends don't have much to do. Seems like it's a demanding forum life for fuwanovel veterans; you have to keep up with the main forums, your PM's, your profile, your Friends, your Status Updates, the main blog, the other Blogs, the skype group, the TS group, and probably others I can't think of right now.
  7. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Yeah, I've been watching all this stuff, too. Denizens of fuwanovel, I find your commitment to 2D rather lacking.
  8. Anime for Marathoning

    I think best shows for a nonstop marathon are the shorter ones (12-26) that you can watch in one day and where every episode ends in a cliffhanger. how about Another
  9. Dark Blue Intro Scene Translation

    The desire of the people to play particular titles (in their entirety, no less) trumps the quality of the translation, by a wide margin. (If I put myself in the position of someone who has been waiting for a particular game to be translated for some time, I can see why as long as it isn't utter nonsense they would go ahead and play it anyway--and not worry about how accurate or readable it is) And as long as this remains so, then the successful vn translators will be the ones who chooses something to undertake as a project which satisfies the desires of the people, then translate it as quickly and efficiently as possible. I'm sure you have read that different translation styles are used with different target audiences. For our audience, the phrases "quick-and-dirty" or "rough-and-ready" come to mind. Yes, I know there are those translators out there who will strive for the highest quality/no compromises/do everything yourself, heedless of whether people will actually be playing the darn thing or not. But I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts that they'll only feel this way for a couple of short titles. Then they'll have to face reality like I did.
  10. Alice in Wonderland Discussion

    I think the key is "on the verge of nonsense". If it were utter nonsense, it wouldn't be nearly as good. (If you just wanted utter nonsense, you could just go and read the entire Three Word Story thread ) http://nargaque.com/2010/04/07/quotations-from-alice-in-wonderland/ In addition to the book, I have the classic cartoon movie, adventure game and video game... I don't know quite why I'm mentioning that, but anyway... If I were to count references I've seen to Alice in Wonderland, even just limited to Japanese anime, manga, and games, there'd still be hundreds.
  11. Best Wishes for Krill

    Krill, Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery
  12. 3000

    I couldn't help but notice that out of the 5 "3000 post" threads linked, 3 of them were in Member's Lounge but 2 were in Coliseum of Chatter.
  13. What are you playing?

    So far I am very pleased with Noble Works. I hope it stays good. Y'all probably know this game by now, from the ongoing translation project. I've actually had this game a long time, ever since people made a big fuss about Dracu-Riot; now I like the art style of that game very much, but I like ojou-samas better than vampires so I picked this one instead. On the other hand, I put off playing it for a while because I didn't have an HD monitor until recently. (By the way, anyone who wants to buy a CRT monitor, let me know) I've done Akari and next I think I will do Shizuru and then maybe Hinata...
  14. Regarding that last part, I'm willing to sell my Comic Party (as well as several other old games) That way you'd at least have it in your collection (you never know, you might learn Japanese someday)
  15. Japanese chat game (for language learners)

    But that would imply that renumnum was the one who translated it (is that true?)
