    Zalor got a reaction from Chronopolis in Kagura Douchuuki, censorship, and apathy towards the English market   
    I just read your article on the lewdgamer website. I completely agree that censoring a nukige is stupid and does not deserve to be rewarded with a purchase. That's just as dumb as buying a porno where all the sex scenes were cut out. Which in my view is just as dumb as watching an ecchi anime (you might as well go with full blown hentai). But I think Steam's censorship polices can be good for VNs in the long term. Thanks to the censorship policies story based VNs are starting to sell better than nukige focused ones (I think that's what you alluded to in the article). 
     
    With Steam as a tool to expand the market, we can reasonably hope to see more story based VNs get localized. And hopefully even see higher quality OELVNs get developed.

    Zalor got a reaction from Eclipsed in Avatar: The Last Fuwabender*   
    Lol, you remember that. My current avatar is an in-between size of my original one, and the big one I used for no longer than an hour. It took slight experimentation, but I ultimately found the perfect size! I feel Eternals deserve the right to find the perfect aspect ratio. Even for us, perfection can take some time to find. ;P

    Zalor reacted to sanahtlig in The Eroge Scene in Parody: Translator Baseball   
    Oh yes, now I remember why I wrote this.  The "functioning" of the VN translation community struck me as absurdity of the highest level.  I wrote this piece to convey the utter dysfunction I saw.
     
    I could easily write a sequel based on the following concepts / events:
     
    The NNL / minori debacle
    Aroduc's Littlewitch Romanesque Kickstarter
    Flame War I: Paradise lost in the chaste gardens of Grisaia
    Flame War II: The Days are no longer Shiny, A tale of Kokoro lost
    The Steam Revolution: Now with 20% less content!
    Sekai Project: Now renewably powered by the tears of the VN fanbase.  Go go Project Sakura!
    JAST USA: Support JAST's censorship of crazy games from Japan!
    Mangagamer: Visual novels - the other animu porn

    Zalor is certainly one of the people I admire and respect the most on the forums. When I see the latest post in a thread was by him, I know something great's coming up.

    Thank you so much, I truly feel honored for this post! I'm glad my work has been appreciated. 
     
     
    This whole thing truly did begin with that idea. For those curious about the back story, in early 2014 or late 2013, Tay had this idea for a VN literary journal, and I was one of the people who applied to write for it. My article was going to explore the complex relationship between Mai and Sayuri in Kanon. The VN journal ended up not happening. My activity on the forums also gradually faded for a while, and then when I returned I felt really guilty as I remembered that I was partly responsible for the VN Lit journal not happening. So I finally sat down and rewrote the previous draft I had (I ended up scrapping most of what I previously had). It took a week or two of repeatedly rereading Mai and Sayuri's routes, writing and rewriting, and listening to the Kanon OST (for inspiration), and on June 30th I finally finished and published it on the forums. The first thing I did afterwards was pm Tay an apology, and I ended the message saying something along lines of "I hope you believe in the adage 'better late than never'". Since then, when a VN truly speaks to me I try to organize my thoughts of it on to paper (well, digital paper). Anyway, once again thanks for this post!

    Much < 3, Zalor! Our friendship was forged in the trenches of the Literary Journal idea : P, but since then my respect for you has only grown. 
     
    (And great post, Rose! Really nicely done.)
