- VNDB

- English patch

- Miu's route completion translation project

 

Ahh, Dracu-riot. My favorite from when I started reading VNs. I remember how this was the game, which made me start to learn Japanese, and thus finished it when just Elina's route was translated.

But now that it has been almost fully released, and a lot of other people are going to play it, I'm making this thread for that reason.

I hold an extreme amount of bias towards this title, and as I played it for the first time, it completely enraptured me with its entirety, and it still is to this day my favorite moege.

Now that I am replaying it, it still holds all the charm it once had, and I still hold extreme bias to it.

As per Yuzusoft's art style, the characters look good, the H-scenes are amazing, and the colors are vibrant. 

Never have I loved the character cast so much in a moege than in Dracu-riot.

The protagonist is self-insert, but like in HoshiMemo, it's not completely self-insert.

That's probably enough of me gushing about it. I'll finish my thoughts below on a later date. Now I'll continue Rio's route and probably die from heartburns.

It's pretty damn good. Go play it.

Damn, I'm just trying to make a thread to discuss this game and suddenly you stole my job lol (Well, thanks though). Be ready for my long post here though. Oh, may I suggest to make a poll for favorite route and character here, since Dracu Riot was a charage and I think opinion for each people may be different. Sorry and thanks in advance.

I'll move my discussion material to this thread, so to all user here use this thread as Dracu Riot discussion thread. And I'll made it more short.

Yeah, added two polls, thanks for the idea

When it's about Dracu-riot, you better watch out.

I'll probably make a review about it after I finish it again.

And here's comes my long post about Dracu Riot. Don't worry, I'll try to keep it clean from the spoiler here as much as possible.

For a little about history lesson, Dracu Riot was 2nd project for Staircase Subs after Hoshizora no Memoria. It was begin back at 2012 (With smoothly translation progress) until September 2013, which back there Insem decided to did something that cause his infamy, that he promised to release the patch with all of currently translated route but he only released the patch with Elina route translated. Well, technically he fulfill his promise though, just almost 31 months late (Granted, anyone will be easily angered enough if the delay was that long. I was the one who angry to be honest). And as we know, yeah finally he decided to release it, allowing Insem to retired with peace (His last post made me feeling guilty for saying him a troll and liar though. Although his tweet before that really didn't help to soften the blow at all, especially if waiting time was like once again almost 31 months). So, basically this VN was becoming 2nd Majikoi (Translated by other retired group then picked up by Fuwanovel here), and I'll made comment on Nosebleed progress report.

As for the premise, it was like our MC Yuuto want to visit Aqua Eden in order to experience adult night life with his best friend. Then his fate was turned because he was almost death by getting in crossfire between security task force member and the criminals. From getting caught in crossfire, Yuuto was turned into vampire. From now on, he could only sleep at day and wake up at night (Not completely though, just the routine was changed). Oh, by the way Yuuto was still in high school, so he also attended special school at Aqua Eden which hold class at night (I forgot to said that Aqua Eden was a city which the people was live together with vampire, and the main source of income of Aqua Eden was night life business). And so Yuuto begin his life at Aqua Eden with many girls.

From production value and technical my praise was same as Noble Works here (All heroine had character song and you could also jump to next choice or back to replay a the scene). For the setting, Aqua Eden was indeed more interesting than Roku Roku Academy, although I didn't said Noble Work setting was bad of course, and also in regard of activity at night. Oh, and the opening here was fully animated, unlike back at Noble Works which only partially animated.

For the seiyuu info, we had returning cast from Noble Works such as (I'll use format NW Character / Seiyuu) 

  1. Masamune Shizuru / Natsuno Koori aka Taguchi Hiroko (Suou Amane from Grisaia franchise, Kagami Sumika from Muv Luv franchise, Hinata Natsumi from Sharin no Kuni) who played as Miu here.
  2. Sanjou Makoto / Ai Shimizu (Komine Sachi from Grisaia franchise, Miss X from Root Double, Napoleon from Eiyuu Senki) who played Russian girl Elina.
  3. Kunihiro Hinata / Nabatame Hitomi (Shirakawa Nanaka from Da Capo 2, Tonami Yuma from ToHeart 2, Aoi Sena from Chaos Head) who play Nicola.
  4. Nagamitsu Maya / Aoba Ringo aka Ringorin (Shihoudou Narika from Beat Blade Haruka, Sakurai Kanade from Deardrops, Benkei from Eiyuu Senki) here who played Sayo, mayor of Aqua Eden.

Although we got 4 returning seiyuu, some the new seiyuu who play in this game also well known and played a character in translated VN. For the new seiyuu, we got (The format this time will be Alias / Real Name for heroine seiyuu)

  1. Satou Shizuku / Nanjou Yoshino (Tsukishima Koko from Da Capo 2, Ouhama Yukino from Osanajimi wa Daitoryou) who played our loli Azusa here. Oh, she was also seiyuu for Ayase Eli from Love Live. And by the way Azusa design was almost like Nozomu from Hatsuyuki Sakura.
  2. Ayukawa Hinata / Sakata Kayo (Sakaue Tsukuyo from Yumina the Ethereal, Kisaragi Suzu from Ayakashibito, Arashima Honoka from Shinikiss) who played Rio here.
  3. Kawashima Rino (Toomi Yuna from Kindred Spirit on Rooftop, Tokisaka Yukari from Kara no Shoujo duology (For now), Subaru from Beat Blade Haruka, Usami Haru from G-Senjou no Maou) here played Anna Reticle, who acted as Sayo's secretary.
  4. Furukawa Tetsuo (Quite unusual that we got experienced male seiyuu compared to Noble Works. Anyway, his role was Gii from Inganock, Nikola Tesla from Gahkthun) who played Yuuto best friend, Kurahashi Naota.

I think that's all for seiyuu info here. For the games, well my advice just find out by yourself, since the reaction for each people was very different of course (Some of them will love it very much like OP and some of them probably not so much). But keep in mind that this is charage though, although quite good one I think.

As for character image song, I'll posted it on BGM VN thread later. Enjoy the game, and once again use this thread for discussing Dracu Riot (Also don't forget to give moral support for Miu's completion translation team there, lead by one of 'Elite Four of Fuwanovel' Nosebleed there, with help from Oxford Comma team).

Staircase Sub's subbed Dracu-Riot! opening (NSFW anniemay tittays  elinafaceemoticon41kaba.png)

I actually saw Dracu-Riot! on this random website (that I honestly don't remember much about) talking about VNs, and it was one of the VNs that made me want to go full weeb and read translated VNs, as I'd only read Katawa Shoujo before that and was a bit in awe of the awesome art.  Always hoped it'd get fully translated, and now it looks like the meme is dead and us English-only plebs will be able to read it now.  I may not be massively hyped for it, but I remain optimistic about the story quality, since I haven't heard that it's shit.  @Clephas?

Not gonna lie, Elina gets bonus points in my book for being voiced by Sachi's VA  :sachi:  Probably gonna do her route and then Miu's next when I finally read it.

It is a good VN... Yuzusoft rarely produces anything below an 8 in my book...  On the other hand, they haven't ever produced a kamige, so that is their limit.  Some of their games are better than others, and Dracu-riot is one of their best.  Its only downside is that the vampires are nerfed, and I'm not fond of nerfing fantasy, lol.

Well, shit, I had planned on this being the title I learned Japanese with. But apparently I put it on the back burner too long. I've been busy and hadn't heard this is getting a full release. I guess I'll have to find another title for that. Not that I'm complaining. I was looking forward to reading this and I can't imagine how much it would have sucked to wait the better part of 3 years for it. Cheers nonetheless.

I had a feeling that I'd say that back when there only was the best girl's route translated, but now that I have enough reading time under my belt to back it up: Dracu-Riot is my favorite Visual Novel. Like of all time.

Dracu-riot! Is just so much fun. That all I can (and need to say). It feels like someone took a good look at Noble Works, ironed out all the things that were bad, added more of the fun stuff and voila, we got this masterpiece. It's just fun, in it's primal form.

 

And yes, Elina absolutely carries this VN. Part of me was a little afraid, that I couldn't get into the other heroines (elinafaceemoticon41kaba.png) without having Elina around, but that fear was put needlessly. She has so many great lines and scenes in the other character routes. You'd think her bluntness would become stale at some point, but nope. She's just perfect.

It's actually been long enough that I remember pretty much nothing about Dracu-Riot! other than Elina being the most yummy heroine ever  elinafaceemoticon41kaba.png

Why isn't her emote a thing yet?

At first I assumed that was from chrome but after searching on it apparently it's implemented in firefox and safari as well. When I searched for that domain on their transparency page it said there was no "dangerous" content as of today. But the page implies that it has been reported in the past. It could be a false positive. It might have been hijacked at some point or a false report submitted. There's a small chance that there might have been something wrong too. The timing seems suspicious given the 3 year hiatus. Is the new patch already out and someone has tried it? I was left with the impression it would be out soon? Or did I misunderstand and it's just nearly fully translated now? As in almost complete rather than almost released?

*edit* It seems a little less likely considering the translator was tweeting about the release according to a VNDB post questioning if it was real or a April fools joke. It also seems that it's 90% complete now? At any rate unless someone owned both the website and the twitter account it's probably a false positive. Probably.

Joining Kiririri, I did not like Azusa's route. I didn't hate it, but it was way longer than it needed to be, had too much "filler" in between the important plot points and the script's resolution got very sloppy towards the end. Overall, the story was all over the place, because it felt too spread out. The idea and point of it all could've worked really well, had the script just been a little tighter and more focused.

Azusa herself though kind of won me over. I liked her way more than I initially thought I would. Hurray for girls with a strongly developed oral fetish, I guess. :kosame:

By far not the worst thing I've ever read, but factually worse than Elina's route and even Nicola's. Nicola's route was really corny and pretty "moege", but there's only so much you can do with 5000 lines and it was at least able to keep a consistent pace from start to finish.

 

I have not checked the After Story of Azusa yet. Saving it for another time.

I also finished Rio's route and I liked it.

I definitely wouldn't blame people for complaining about too much moe in this one and there are some traces of Noble*Works-PTSD, (- please whoever wrote this; stop showing us flashbacks to scened that happened ten minutes ago -) but I nonetheless enjoyed myself.

As with Azusa, I came to really like Rio as a character and reached the conclusion, that there is no worst grill in Dracu-Riot. 

 

Reading Azusa's route first made it a little worse of an experience than it could've been tho, since

Spoiler

both routes reveal an important twist that is used in both routes. 

The same is true vice-versa though, so read the one you're more interested in first.

 

Lastly, a reoccurring theme observed in all of the "new" routes: Good Girl Elina:

I just find out in here there's a project to translate Dracu Riot interface. Maybe it's already well-known to all of Fuwanovel user here, but here's the link to the thread below

Dracu Riot Translation Interface

I think the translator himself admitted it was bad English, but it should be help enough (Unless for some reason you got the need to criticize every bad English in all work). At least you didn't need to open the picture of translated image every time you go to config page.

As for the games itself, it was quite fun. Also some trivia here, I just find out another Easter Egg from their previous games

n46B2kH.jpg

Could you guess what is it (You may know though). Oh by the way the scene above was MC, Miu, and Azusa find uncensored porn video that was illegally sold. For the fetish, I think it's fine except for scat. And tomorrow after the incident above Rio curious about the video and she only got animal part (By the way, uncensored video also involved bestiality), and Miu said that was a video about 'Russian man with female goat'. Then Rio conclude that the man must be pro wrestling with goat and she feel sorry for the man (I just want to said, yes Rio the man and goat did pro wrestling all right (Back in Eiyuu Senki MC was using euphemism pro wrestling for sex)), although I wonder is there any sick person who got horny with the goat so much there's a video for it.

Oh, this game had quite many virgin joke. As for the background, it was more interesting than Noodle Works (NW), which to be honest was quite bland (I didn't said NW was bad okay). And here we also got gay doctor who always optimistic in everything, a disabled secretary (By the way Kawashima still in her usual range), and loli mayor (The range was quite defferent from either Sayane (Soukoku) or Narika (Haruka). And to @NickFreja, you may as well play Dracu Riot untranslated because of Ringorin even though she was only side character this time). One last word, I'll looking forward for completion patch once again.
