Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

You highligted wrong part ;) "All-ages" isn't end of the world, if done skillfully, but when translation is horrible, even h-scenes won't save it :P Or does it have so high amount of H that there's almost nothing left without it?

All ages is completely fine as long as the very original version was all ages.

Never read it but i believe it. Screw loli stuff.

I haven't read it yet (it waits in queue), but probably wouldn't have got it at all if only ero version was available.

I was like: Wow, VN about trains! - "Open the gates!!!"

Then: Shit, it's lolige! - "Close the gates!!!!"

And finally: But there will be all-ages version - "Open the gates a little" ;)

As for Noraneko here, the first release was 18+ version. Then it got popular, and thus they released it in PS4 and PSV. So the original version here is 18+ version, and I think they'll change the H scenes with appropriate scenes for Sony (Before they tightening the censor that is). As for Maitetsu, it's like Chrono Clock in which the sex scenes are separated from main game (Apparently), so you didn't need to play the sex scenes (The number of the scenes in Maitetsu is at around 44 scenes, although I may be wrong).

Really looking forward to this VN. Though, while there are certainly many VN's where I don't really care about the H-scenes, this is one where I actually do. I like the art and judging by the VN tags this is very ero heavy. I therefore wouldn't be amused if they'd only release an all ages version.

What I can say is that you better don't let yourself trapped in the hype, especially after looking at your Chaos Child experience. Also judging by the VA credit in the opening (They deleted it though), I did have very low confidence that they'll release 18+ version so you may as well just let this go.

Looks like someone told them the grammar was wrong in the descriptions, or at least for the Nora part because they changed "Once upon a time,mother passing away" to " Once upon a time, after his mother passed away". Let's hope it was just a web designer who didn't know english well and that's why the grammar was wonky. If not, I'd have to agree with everyone else that this would not be beneficial for them to release in the west.

This and Chaos;Child are completely different VN's and I have very different expectations from them. Nora is just a fan service heavy moege and I don't expect any deep story from it.

True enough, although in the end you still trapped in the hype though that Chaos Child is the 'kamige without flaw' expectation (I understand though).

As for the VA credit, they listed the real name instead of the pseudonym (ie listed Eri Sendai instead of Haruka Sora for the cast), so at least you can be sure that there's no sex scenes because the seiyuu will use pseudonym in eroge and real name in all age VN. I would be surprise though if they manage to add sex scenes, but seeing that there'll be a lot of more interesting release (ie Senren Banka) I'll probably just skip this for now.

I simply refuse to play an all ages game, I would rather watch a very generic slice of life anime or any anime really than read an all ages VN.

EDIT: Looks like there will be no porn guys. Someone mentioned it having the console port assets though, so if that’s true, that’s neat at least. (Not the ps4 ones I hope w)

The screenshots on the current Steam page actually seem pretty decent. At least compared to the mess that they showed at first.

Has there been any word on whether or not they will make a patch for the 18+ content? It would suck if they only offer an all-ages cut version, as the H is really good in this game. :ph34r:

There won't be an official 18+ patch, the voice licensing for it seems very difficult.

I don't get what they mean about this. The base game they are selling will still have the same VAs, right? And the product was already created as an 18+ game originally, so the VAs were eroge seiyuus. Why is a localization company paying extra for the 18+ side of voice acting? I've never heard about this being an issue in the loc industry before.

I'm not privy to the exact details, but voice licensing is always very complicated in Japan. In this case there's the 18+ PC version, then several console ports (where the seiyuus go by their real names and not the 18+ aliases), and even an anime to muddle the waters. The seiyuus are also very famous so they may have stricter clauses in their contracts than usual.

EDIT: Oh, and it's released by the developers themselves, not a localization company, so that's not a factor.

Just like most big eroges do. I'm pretty that they simply skipped the 18+ version during the planning stage and by now it's too much hassle to go back and re-negotiate anything for it. If it sells well they'll decide that they were right and we'll have a new Moenovel on our hands with (maybe?) a better TL quality. And if it bombs, they'll simply abandon the West as Harukaze aren't really invested in it yet. A true win-win situation.

Well if this version did have new content like Eien no Aselia or Eiyuu Senki, perhaps it would be worth it to get even with the censorship mess. Otherwise I'll just treat it as censored VN, and once again my suggestion would be just wait for Senren Banka release later like I said earlier (Because three of the four main heroines seiyuu did voiced three Senren Banka main heroines). Good luck for the release later though.

Seems like an excuse made by the company, I really dislike that they are taking westerners as a fool, selling "nerfed" censored products(reminds me of smartphone market, asian companies ripping of customers in EU, offering less RAM less storage and weaker processor for the same money).

I agree. They should disregard all their expenses and believe that somehow the VN will sell enough to not bankrupt them.

Well at least they are creative, never heard about the practice of localization companies paying extra for the 18+ side of voice acting, though one can argue this is the good old "We wouldnt have it at all if it wasnt censored" or "They needed a lower age rating to make a profit" mantra.

Hopefully this butchered version will be a failure.
