Does anyone like plus over the original?

I personally don't really like plus cause when they emote they had to remove a lot of expression sprites making some lines look weird when they use the wrong expression. Or maybe it's just me

We were lucky in the original that every single line of dialogue was associated with 2 expressions, so they clearly put a lot of effort into it. I did not find the emote version in plus to be any more expressive as a result, though I did prefer the H scenes with the motion... occasionally the motion was more than a little unnatural, but then there's very little natural about most H scenes in VNs.

Well I haven't seen the  scenes yet but I usually ignore them anyway...

But judging by looking at the normal conversations looks like you also spotted what I did which is that they removed a lot of sprite expressions from PLUS. I actually found it less fun to play the PLU version than the original. Though maybe the H scenes may look better with plus ( haven't seen them yet )

any update on the translation?

This game looks very promising :)

From one look at the post at their blog, Ittaku said that he planned to tackle Anzu's route in several weeks back at February though. As for the real update, there's still no update yet but perhaps there will be in the future.

I was going to start translating Anzu's route in March but then the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild happened. Maybe in a month or so I'll have time again.

EDIT: This is proving to be one of my most popular posts of late, so I guess that's a yes vote from the community ^_^ It'll still be a few weeks before I'm free from other commitments but I should be able to tackle it. I have to admit this has turned into one of my all time favourite VNs.

Knowing that this may well be one of my most popular actions ever on fuwa, I'm pleased to say I've started working on Anzu's route, which is also the last route left untranslated in the game. Note that even when I finish this translation it does NOT mean there will be a prerelease complete patch for you to try, nor does it give any indication of how far off a real release will be as translate check and editing hasn't even started yet, and there's still the wild card of what we're going to do about all the extra H scenes in Clover Day's Plus. Either way, Anzu is finally getting the love and attention she deserves to join the other wonderful girls in this game, though her route was very different from the others when I played it with surprisingly by far the most drama in it so I'm not sure how translating that will go.

I'm not really sure what Astro was smoking when he posted on the wordpress site that Anzu's route was 50% complete. When I picked it up I found it to be about 15% complete, so I've come to give an update only to find that it looks like bad news when it's actually good news. But then it really doesn't matter, a project making forward progress is better at any percentage than one stalled.

Progress update: Anzu's route is now 1/3 complete.

TL will certainly be done much before that. The questions comes from the patching/editing and other work. Not sure what of the rest of the team is still around to finish it up or if the other routes are actually ready to be released and it all is hindering on this one. Either way we are forever grateful to ittaku.
