VN Translation Status (26/10/2014)

You know things are getting grim when you can’t even find anything to blame for being on time with a blog post. Since things aren’t actually getting grim, I’ll blame having finished Welcome to the NHK yestoday. Recommended!

This is more or less a copy of a post the user VNTS does on 4chan’s /jp/ board weekly, with some edits, potential additional entries and such. Entries in green have progressed since last week; this week, we saw progress on 9 projects and a release… except Princess Nightmare was actually the otomege I was talking about last week, and Little Princess released that same week is an adventure game. So yeah, nine projects? On that note, Mamatoto is an Alicesoft game but not actually a VN. VNTS, lying to you ’round the clock~

Well, ain’t that LB!EX progress lookin’ grand. Now remember, translation is not the last step. Speaking of last steps – oreimo psp seems to be getting somewhat close. The question is, should you watch the anime first — and is it worth it, anyway? Apparently the ending of s2 sucked, and Kirino always sucked unless you like domestic abuse. Or so I hear.


Writer of irreverent VNTS commentaries, shadowy Fuwanovel string puller, Swedish, ambivalent toward meatballs. Brave Fuwanovel Skype Group memeber (rip), technically a reviewer, chronic everything staller. I am all these things and more, but mostly I'm really lazy. Loves yuri, reading, chocolate, and quality sugar-free colas. Hates VNs with too many choices and long walks on the beach.

Can anyone share a torrent of Oreimo PSP and Oreimo Tsuzuku?

A quite cool new translation has started. Zakobot is translating the steins;gate sequel.

It’s not really a sequel, more of a side story.

Not much of an update! I guess it is school time for translators :D.

Many thanks!

“Final Phase of Editing, Progress:
Main game text: 90.1% Ema: 0.0% Hanafuda: 0.0%”

“Common route is 100% edited but not yet TLCed, tested, and proofread. Demo winter ver. is 100% edited and TLCed, currently in middle of proofreading.” <- Still looking for proofreaders.
