  1. Hello, I'm ziege. My actual name is of course not ziege, but my username, it means goat in German. I don't know if you wanted any of this info, but now to the actual issue: In short, VNR translates visual novels, that's why it's called Visual Novel Reader. It has a database with user submitted subtitles for visual novels. The machine translators are garbage and VNR is so old that I never except for one visual novel got it working as it should. Regardless is it the only text hooker that has user submitted subtitles. So I think it's worth preserving. Also, even after I close the application, the cursor stays blue, why is that? Now to a project idea for all developers out there: Take the user subtitles from VNR and make an application that's similar to VNR (and actually works) and runs them. I'm not yet there myself (as a dev), and therefore I allow you to steal my idea (, because I want to play Shinigami to Shoujo so bad). But if no one implements this idea, I will and that's my announcement. PS: I will call this off if you tell me how to start VNR without it crashing. The website where you can download VNR: vnr.aniclan.com You have you make an account. The language options are in russian for some reason. I used a machine translator to make an account. ...
  2. The day has come, I have decieded to port GFL to Visual novel form (Renpy) This is the place to keep track of the project! - Introduction: Girls' Frontline (少女前线) is a mobile strategy role-playing game for ANDROID EMULATOR ON PC developed by China-based studio MICA Team, where players control echelons of android characters, known in-universe as T-Dolls, each carrying a distinctive real-world zoom banger. - The game was released in Mainland China on 20 May 2016 in Hong Kong and Taiwan on 18 January 2017, and in South Korea on 30 June 2017. - And The global English version was released on 8 May 2018, while the Japanese version was released on 1 August 2018 under the title Dolls Frontline (ドールズフロントライン) due to the Girls' Frontline trademark in Japan already being held by another registrant. - Also Girls' Frontline is a prequel of another game developed by MICA Team, Codename: Bakery Girl, released in 2013 - The Game is set in a War-torn future where tactical dolls, more commonly known as T-Dolls, are almost exclusively used for combat in place of humans, some having been repurposed from their previous life as civilian androids. The majority of the world is uninhabitable due to contamination from the Collapse Fluid, and much of humankind is dead. In 2062, the artificial intelligence of Sangvis Ferri (SF) spontaneously rebels against humanity, with their T-Dolls and robots killing their human masters and taking over nearby areas. In response, the private military company (PMC) Griffin & Kryuger (G&K) is hired to contain and eliminate Sangvis Ferri forces; the player assumes the role of a recently promoted G&K Commander The base storyline focuses on the adventures of this commander and the Anti-Rain (AR) Team consisting of M4a1, STAR-15, m4 SOP(O)mod ii, M16a1, and RO (635). Other important characters include the commander's logistics officer, Kalina, AK-12, AN-94, AK-15, RPK-16 and Angelia of Squad DEFY and Squad 404, made up of UMP45, UMP9, 416, and Gr G11. - Enough copy and paste from the Wiki, I have been playing this game since August 2019 and being a daily login commander since, I'm very impressed how the writing and the world of this game set in, so I want to bring this to a bigger screen... (most GFL player already play this game on their pc) and no, only the visual novel part! - The game currently have ~40 main chapter and ton of side story, not counting ~9 Collab story, and tons of Individual character event/story, each can last from 10 minutes to 3 hours! - Goal: my goal is to preserve the game In an offline Visual Novel form, while keeping the "vibe" of the in game visual novel as close as possible including sprite Animation, sound and VFX - Off course, this can't be done perfectly while I have some personal editorial bias toward the visual novel "quality of life" aspect, but don't worry, I will try to keep the script 100% to the original. - The other goal is to create a general archive of GFL, including but not Limited to Sprite/CG/Music/Character info. - And finally, here's the progress of this project and stuff to do that will be constantly updated: Script Porting Progression : chapter 10_5 singularity UI Progression: not so basic UI Navigation MUSIC PLAYER: NA GALLERY: NA CHAPTER UI: Goal is to emulate in game story UI (except for Longitudinal Strain) Skill level in making this happen: Worse than Yandev NOT GET DMCA FROM THE MAN HIMSELF : MERRY CHRISTMAS GAME IS OUT IN BETA! GFL REDUX 1.0 BETA TEST
  3. WIN, MAC, ANDROID, LINUX Hello guys, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce our latest project to you – Echoes Of Home! Echoes Of Home is a captivating visual novel that seamlessly blends elements of an NSFW adventure, a click adventure, and a dating simulator. Immerse yourself in the vibrant setting of a Japanese school and metropolis as you embark on a journey filled with communication, relationship-building, and decisions that intricately shape the narrative. Beyond that, revel in the ability to customise characters clothes and explore diverse locations. Echoes of Home promises a rich experience, complete with the enchanting allure of a dating simulator. At its current juncture, Echoes of Home is actively evolving, with the development phase only just commencing. Anticipate at least 2-3 more years of development before we unveil the final masterpiece. Our unwavering commitment is to deliver an exceptional gaming experience, and to that end, we will continuously enhance the game. If you're keen on staying abreast of our progress, consider joining our vibrant community on Discord. The present version of the game is available for download on our Patreon platform, with older versions accessible on itch.io. Be aware that the current iteration is merely a prototype, with a more comprehensive package slated for release in the coming month, featuring a brand-new engine. Let me take a moment to delve into the narrative that Echoes of Home weaves. The story orbits around Asahi, a young student whose life takes a tragic turn as he loses his parents in a car accident. Forced to abandon the bustling life of Tokyo, he returns to his hometown where Kanae, the cherished friend of his late mother, takes him under her wing. However, Kanae's warm embrace isn't the sole surprise awaiting him... enter Kotone, her spirited daughter, showcasing a strong tsundere disposition. This dynamic sets the stage for an array of fascinating characters – from the fervent gamer Fuka to Hiroshi, a childhood friend providing steadfast support. Not to mention, the presence of Satori, the school council president, and Sonata, a dominant classmate, Kanon classmate and a renting girlfriend and among others. First you will select school club and job, you'll uncover fantastical elements within the story. Asahi possesses the unique ability to delve into the dreams of others, fostering captivating interactions with those who share a slumbering proximity. Dreams unveil desires, fears, and memories, enriching the storytelling experience. Your objective is to seamlessly integrate into the new school, establish meaningful relationships, and acquaint yourself with all the diverse characters. The path you choose is entirely yours to navigate, allowing for the formation of romantic connections or even the creation of a harem. The story refrains from steering you in a singular direction, and in the future, you'll have the agency to play as either a benevolent angel or one who introduces a touch of mischief to the lives of those around. At present, our prototype features 20 characters (both primary and supporting), with plans to incrementally expand this roster in future releases. In upcoming iterations, it will be perfectly acceptable not to encounter specific locations or characters based on your chosen decisions. Delving into the gameplay mechanics, Echoes of Home presents a myriad of engaging features: The option to select a school club and job (currently 1x job and 1x school club, with plans for 5 each) A dating simulator experience An interactive world map A day and night cycle A store for customizable character skins and items A gift/dating system A school system A task tracking system Point-and-click adventure elements The ability to alter character appearances The option to rename main characters NSFW scenes For further insights and updates, feel free to peruse our Patreon. It's essential to touch upon two pertinent matters. Firstly, the current prototype affords approximately 20 minutes of playtime, providing a glimpse into the trajectory we're pursuing. However, the story version is yet to reach completion. Originally developed using the Ren'Py engine, we are transitioning to the GODOT engine in the next version, ensuring a more expansive narrative. Secondly, during the course of development, we encountered a regrettable misstep in the creation of CGs and BGs, as we inadvertently drew inspiration from another visual novel. Despite two months spent in complete redraws, this situation proved challenging. Nevertheless, it imparted valuable lessons about the significance of originality. Over the past two months, we've been meticulous in our approach to references, prioritizing absolute originality and creativity. Our team is committed to the continuous development and refinement of the game, emphasizing quality over quantity. While these are our ambitious plans, we acknowledge that they may evolve as we navigate the realities of the development process. Our envisioned goals include: Including up to 25 main characters in the game Creating up to 50 supporting characters Preparing over 50 distinct locations to explore Expanding the main storyline with new elements and possibilities Introducing new variations of character skins The evolution of Echoes of Home is intricately woven with the fabric of community support. As we navigate the exciting journey of development, we recognize that we cannot do it alone. Your regular support not only fuels the creative engine but also becomes the catalyst for introducing fresh ideas and content. Embarking on such an ambitious work necessitates more than individual efforts.. it requires a collaborative effort that draws inspiration from the diverse minds within our community. We welcome and value the input of our community, embracing the openness to new ideas that can elevate the gaming experience. Realistically speaking, financing an entire game independently is a challenging feat. To bring Echoes of Home to life, we need financial resources to collaborate with talented artists and programmers, ensuring the game reaches its full potential. In light of this, we've established support milestones that reflect our commitment to transparency and appreciation for your support: 250 Patreons: Regular monthly updates will become a staple, supplemented by occasional major updates every three months. Your consistent support paves the way for the continuous refinement and expansion of the game. 500 Patreons: Experience the visual feast with new illustrations (CGs) seamlessly integrated into the game every month. Your contribution allows us to enhance the visual narrative and bring the characters to life in vibrant detail. 750 Patreons: Unlock the potential for creating additional content, delivered to you every month. Your support enables us to explore new storylines, characters, and features, keeping the game dynamic and ever-evolving. 1000 Patreons: Reach the pinnacle of monthly content with the introduction of at least new animations/cgs every month. Your backing propels us into the realm of animated storytelling, adding an extra layer of immersion to the Echoes of Home experience. 1500+ Patreons: We can work on it full time We genuinely appreciate each and every form of support, and as a token of our gratitude, we commit to providing monthly updates exclusively on Patreon. These updates will offer a behind-the-scenes look at our progress, insights into the development process, and a sneak peek at what's on the horizon. DEMO AND SUPPORT PAGE HERE Thank you for being an integral part of the Echoes of Home community. Together, we're not just crafting a game; we're creating an immersive and captivating experience that resonates with each of you. Thank you for your time! Yumeiro Studio
  4. It is time again to make your wishes heard! I personally wished for Club Suicide, Hana Awase and Blackish House. I'm thankful for any otome or BL game they pick up tho! Good luck to everyone!

  9. Wft what it's happening since Witch garden are on Nintendo eShop in EU with Japanese support. I'm from Norway in Europe and I just so Witch garden on Nintendo switch eShop, bud sadly it's not in English. I don't understand why Nintendo decided to release it in Japanese and not in English. I'm quite disappointed right now. Since I don't understand Japansk.
  10. Description: Hana Awase was originally released for PC in 4 parts starting in 2012. The last part was first released in 2019. Along with the usual visual novel and adventure game gameplay it also features a Hanafuda battle system. The Switch port will be released sometime in 2023. I don't know much about the game but have heard some things about it. Like that it was jokingly called Yu-gi-oh the otome game lol I will definitely get it. Whether I'll get the physical edition will depend on if they release all 4 parts in one game or not. I would rather not import 4 separate games... God 2023 is loaded with English otome game releases!
  11. Hello, world! I'm developing a visual novel engine. It already has a number of basic functions, loading lua, json and etc. I want to make something unique and modern, and most importantly, that everything works stably on all operating systems (Win, Android, Linux and etc. Source code: https://github.com/0xcds4r/VisualNovelCore/tree/main/stable 0.6-stable build (Source + test build for windows): https://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/26303-visual-novel-core-06-stable-engine-for-2d-visual-novels-with-luajson-support-download-demosource-code/ Scene Editor (alpha-test): https://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/26287-visual-novel-core-with-luajson-support/?do=findComment&comment=538025 Project is open-source and actively developed.

  12. Giga was very popular and a staple of the Japanese visual novel/eroge industry, but the west barely got any of their first-party titles. We might onlym know them through Baldr Sky actually. Any other giga titles you have played? Which have you looked forward to to eventually get localized?
  13. Yeah the thread title here is definitely rhymed all right. Anyway the tweet in regard of it below. Initially Steam did list it as October release, although right now it already change into Q4 2022, so it mean that at the latest we'll get the VN in December's end. That aside, as we know this is Laplacian VN which we know was released Aojashin back on February with one tiny fault that caused one tiny controversy that still enough to annoy me here (At least it won't happen with Mirai Radio here), so if possible I prefer to less talk about it for now. Anyway it's good that we finally have the long wait for it is finally almost over, especially if one already waited for it ever since Sol Press announced it (When they still have enough spirit before realized that they didn't allocate enough money to pay taxes).
  14. So the Dessert de Otomate 2023 was yesterday and here are the announcements. I borrowed the summaries from this Gematsu article. Especially for Hakuoki they probably contain more info than I could give. Radiant Tale: Fanfare fandisc announced Radiant Tale's description: Summary: A fan disc of the May 2022-released Radiant Tale. Delivering smiling faces to everyone once more. Radiant Tale was announced to be relased in English as well this year in Summer. If it sells well we could get this fandisc too in the future. Hakuoki Shinkai: Manyou no Shou fandisc and Hakuoki: Sweet School Life port for Switch announced Hakuoki Shinkai: Summary for the fandisc announcement: A fan disc containing a number of spin-off stories and illustrations not included in the main story, such as a recollection of the events of Hakuoki: Zuisouroku. Hakuoki SSL: Summary: A Switch port of the 2014-released Hakuoki: Sweet School Life. The setting shifts from the Bakumatsu period to a modern era school, where you can enjoy a cheerful and slightly heartrending love story. Hakuoku SSL also got a fantranslation patch for the PS Vita in 2021. Collar x Malice: deep cover 2-part movie information: The two movies will open on May 26 and June 23, respectively this year. The movies will cover an original story and introduced a new character called Mitsuru Sowa (CV: Katsuyuki Konishi ) that will appear: They also announced that the protagonist Ichika Hoshino will be voiced by Kaede Hondo. Collar x Malice: I hope the original story will be interesting enough. I just hope they animate it properly, that Ichika is cute and that my favorite Shiraishi get's screentime. Cupid Parasite: Sweet & Spicy Darling fandisc updates: Cupid Parasite: Summary: A fan disc of the goddess / marriage hunting love comedy game Cupid Parasite. The story follows the good ending of the previous game. In addition to the hidden romanceable character Peter Flage (voiced by Nobuhiko Okamoto), Melenis Levin (voiced by Yuuto Uemura) the Fate Parasite appears as a newly romanceable character. Japanese band The Biscats will once again perform the opening and ending theme songs. Melenis Levin (new love interest): I sure wonder what kind of a mess Melenis will end up being? "Fate" doesn't tell me too much. What made him a Parasite? OP video and more revealed to Alice in the Country of Spades: Wonderful Black World: Summary: A sequel to the September 2021-released Alice in the Country of Spades: Wonderful White World. The opening movie and shop-specific bonuses have been newly revealed. Alice in the Country of Spades The good old Heart no Kuni no Alice series! The Anniversary edition of the first game in the series has an English fanpatch for PC. A very unconventional series which most might know from all the manga adaptions this series spawned which got localised around the world (I have quite a few of them in German). Cast announced for 9 R.I.P. 9 R.I.P. Summary: A slightly strange omnibus romance visual novel that unfolds in various “other worlds.” Announced cast: Kureha CV: Toshiki Masuda Hibiki CV: Toki Shunichi Kouyou CV: Suzuki Ryota Sena: Kakihara Tetsuya Minami CV: Okamoto Nobuhiko Seiya CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke Yukimaro CV: KENN Koharu CV: Azakami Yohei Very interested in this one. I remember it having to do with urban legends and I like my otome games a bit spooky. I don't know about the large number of love interests tho. Quality > Quantity for me. My9Swallows TOPSTARS LEAGUE: My9Swallows TOPSTARS LEAGUE: Summary: A new professional baseball league has been organized, and a team of newcomers who passed the Yakult team auditions is formed with the goal of making it the league championship. This is the story of the romance between the protagonist put in charge of the team, and the players on the team. The story summary, first characters, and stage portraits have been newly revealed. Well. This is quite something. Tfw you have to be a baseball star aiming to win the league championship AND be an idol. I do not know how that works but alright. Could be funny to watch honestly. There is also something about them recruiting for the newest Altergear (non-romance branch) title. I would be surprised tho if any of the titles from this branch end up as a success. I haven't heard anything good about the title that was already released. Doing romance-less joseimuke visual novels only works with good characters and story. I guess we'll see...
  15. Our First Indie Visual Novel Steam page is ready! Release date: 2023 Add to wishlist: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2260150/Pomegranate_Tea/ Olivia's quiet and peaceful life in her native estate changes overnight when her father woos her to the mysterious Earl Schernadier. An ordinary tea party ends in the most incredible way: a strange aristocrat imprisons Olivia in a castle, and now she must do the impossible to return home. About this game: Olivia, a representative of an impoverished noble family, meets the mysterious Earl Schernadier. He is very rich and noble, but leads a rather closed lifestyle. It's no wonder: what kind of madman would take a rabbit as a butler, and hire a fish as a personal servant? Only an extraordinary person who still keeps a lot of skeletons in the closet is capable of this. The aristocrat offers Olivia to drink a special pomegranate tea, and, after a couple of sips, the girl's life irrevocably changes. Features of the game: Five different endings: Olivia's adventures can end at any moment! Think carefully about your choice - some of the paths lead to unexpected consequences – both joyful and sad. A bizarre atmosphere from Alice in Wonderland: rabbit people, fish people, strange situations and a lot of humor are waiting for you! The mysterious castle is fraught with many wonders, and its visit promises a lot of interesting acquaintances. Grow up with Olivia: the heroine, deprived of all support, learns to make difficult decisions. She will have to show character, endurance and remarkable resourcefulness – otherwise her relatives will never see her again. A multifaceted story about growing up, responsibility and acceptance. You will be able to experience a full palette of emotions: sadness, joy, loneliness, powerlessness – and all this in one game! Memorable visual style, lots of beautiful locations and an abundance of characters.

  18. Hello, Everyone! I would summon my courage in order to share with you the project I was working on for the past year. "Bottoms Up!" is a LINEAR Visual Novel type of game, which was supposed to serve as an "adaptation" of the fantasy novel with the same name I released (In Bulgarian) a few years back. The setting and the story of the game is not really typical for the genre I would say, but I always wanted to adapt the book into some sort of more visual media and since I really like visual novels I decided that this type of project will be doable for me. And I thought making something kind of different will be cool. My main inspiration was a mixture of eastern european (Bulgarian) folklore and the classic fantasy trope we all know. The plot itself is basically a criminal story. If you are interested you can read a synopsis, check some of the custom soundtrack and more in the Itch Io page here: https://inspiredbynoobs.itch.io/bottomsup I will be really happy if you check the game and give me some feed back. Thank you!
  19. Eight months after their last update, Frontwing finally updates the fans on the current state of their projects. Other than Sharin no Kuni, there are a lot of open questions. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frontwing/support-visual-novel-islands-english-game-and-anim/posts/3633384 What do you think? Have you ever bought or supported Frontwings kickstarter projects? Bad or good experiences with it?
  20. Yes it happen, and here the link to the tweet in regard of it. While you can get it on Steam, it would be better to get it from Johren if possible or use the 18+ patch if you still get it from Steam, because Steam version has several issue, with the major one is they removed Kazari's route in Steam version. I have no idea on why Shiravune need to cut her route, or why Valve seems didn't like her route seeing that they've been okay with principal heroine in Majokoi. That issue aside, I've been waiting to see the VN like this so good for Shiravune. PS - It's been a while since I did list the characters along with their VAs, so let me try to do it now. 1. Asuka Minato After Minato's grandmother passed away, Minato was suffer a big loss. Fortunately Kazari who is raised by Minato's grandmother was willing to take Minato under Kazari's care, so Minato come into Kazari's school where she act as the principal with said school is only for the upper class girl. While there's a lot of complication happen, it didn't matter for Minato who already got a lot of skills that the grandmother taught, so much that Minato can do the chores easier than the girls around Minato (Which to be fair is not that hard for Minato seeing that the girls are quite ditzy). Minato's VA is Ayumi Sarah, and her roles are Anneliese from Kimagure Temptation, Ayasaki Yuu from Bokukotsu, Yuragi from Evenicle 2, and Kousaka Mayuri from Flowers tetralogy. Oh yes in case you're noticed that I didn't use the pronoun for Minato, it's because I'd try to hide the gender, and yes Minato here is our male MC for Otome Domain in which he's very cute like female. 2. Saionji Kazari She was under the care of Minato's grandmother, and when Minato lost his grandmother Kazari decided to take care of him, including allowed him to attend Kazari's school with him must dressed up as a girl (Which is very easy to do, much to his dismay). While Kazari here is the school principal, unfortunately it didn't stop her for being ditzy, especially with her spent more effort to use bottle when she wants to pee instead of using the less bothersome (And more rational) option by going to the toilet. Kazari's VA is Anzu Hana, and her roles are Kawamura Reo from Sono Hanabira franchise, Noa from Sorcery Jokers, Ese Ren from Ne no Kami (Replacing the late Mochi Yomogi), and Konohana Yuka from Hokejo. 3. Oogaki Hinata Out of all the heroines, she came off as the most normal one. Although it's less because she has no quirk and more because her quirk is merely being a chuunibyou, with her acting as the cadre of a vague evil organization. Her background is that her family was suddenly getting rich so much that she's able to attend Kazari's school, although Hinata here is too busy caught up in her fantasy so much that she didn't have time to be smug about her fortune. Hinata's VA is Himekawa Airi, with her roles are Gurigura from Evenicle, Nanase Momoka from Imouto Paradise 2, Cook from Eiyuu Senki, and Kuranaga Kozue from Yosuga no Sora. 4. Kifune Yuzu While it seems that she's quite normal, don't be fooled because I did say that Hinata here is the most normal. As for her quirk, she has very different standard when it come to cooking compared to the other people. By different I mean that she cook the food to be as inedible as possible, and thus nobody want her to be in the kitchen (Especially after both Kazari and Hinata felt sick after caught the smell of Yuzu's 'cooking'). Other than being terrible at cooking, Yuzu here is also very bad at tidying her room. Yuzu's VA is Ueda Akane with her roles are Magellan from Eiyuu Senki, Nogi Tamie from Princess Evangile (Coincidentally both Yuzu and Tamie are the member of School Newspaper Club), Nanase Chiharu from Imouto Paradise 2, and Arisugawa Arle from Bokukotsu.
  21. The Publisher MangaGamer had a booth and panel at AnimeNYC (a huge convention in New York) and during this time they announced two new titles. The first game is Guilty's "Nightmare x Onmyoji ~Kindan no Paradox~" and Minori's "12 Tsuki no Eve". People expected some darker titles, but it is nice they were able to bring Minori back. Apparently, Bamboo and the Minori CEO still go out for drinks frequently, so their games aren't off the table! Official Posts: Nightmare x Onmyoji 12 Tsuki no Eve Here you also have some attendee's perspectives by @Deluneko.
  22. Announcement 1 - Ore no Cupid ga Ponkotsu Sugite Kowa~i. Announcement 2 - Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate Announcement 3 - Baka Moe Heart ni Ai o Komete! Announcement 4 - Uchi wa Mou, Enki Dekinai Announcement 5 - Shinsou Noise ~Jushin Tantei no Jikenbo~ I'll try to comment on those announcements later.
  23. Preview of the movies theme song "Ningen×Shikkaku" (No Longer×Human): An anime project for the otome game Collar x Malice was already announced 2019. This year in September they revealed it as a movie to be aired in 2023. Today they revealed that the movie will air in two parts under the title "Gekijōban Collar×Malice Deep Cover". The first part will air summer 2023 and will be animated by Studio DEEN. The key visual suggests that it will be an adaption of Yanagi's route, which is the final route of the game. Collar x Malice was first released in Japan in 2016 for the PS Vita. In 2017 it was also officially released in English by Aksys Games. In 2020 Switch ports for the original game and its fandisc Collar x Malice Unlimited were released in Japanese and English. Description: I'm glad it's a two parter because now I can at least have hope that the pacing won't be a complete disaster. This way they should be able to convey the central plot well enough. Still a bit miffed about it being Yanagi's route since it was my least favorite. However, for stand-alone movies it is the only sensible choice. It answers the big questions, after all. I just have to hope for as much Shiraishi screentime as possible. And I demand Ichika to be animated with all the love in the world!
  24. Publisher MangaGamer just released the sequel title to "How to live a Healthy Hentai lifestyle" on their store. The game is called "How a Healthy Hentai Administers Public Service" and it's the second game in the Kenzen series. In the first game we already got to know parts of an in-universe hentai health administry and its public servants, but in this game we delve deeper into these characters. The artwork is once again made by Butcha-U, who is known for his mature looking women characters in top-rated doujinshi like DELIGHTFULLY FUCKABLE AND UNREFINED or other works under label EROQUIS. He will actually be the artist/character designer for the upcoming SACRIFICE VILLAINS, too. Synopsis MangaGamer Website MangaGamer Shop (44.95$) VNDB
