VN Translation Status (21/03/2015)

This post is the first in a four-week VN translation updates experiment. Typically what Zaka has done in the past for these “project updates” posts is rely/fact-check a weekly post on the /jp/ board on 4chan. Well, as part of my interest in rebooting/overhauling the VNTLS concept, I wanted to know how much time and effort it would take to write/track/do those types of posts by ourselves, from scratch. And that’s exactly what I’ll be doing over the next four weeks. I’m going to make mistakes, and this first post isn’t much to look at, but the information should be good (it was taken directly from the dev sites) and any new updates are marked by orange text.

If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let me know in the comments.

 The Short Version:
Only the New Stuff

  • The AstralAir team has decided to re-translate everything done by one of their former translators (see this post for more info), and they really need translators to join the team, or even just help out in sections. If you’re interested, contact info can be found here.
  • A little progress seen by the Koiken Otome team (Flying Pantsu)
  • Some editing progress by the Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort team (MDZ)
  • New project: Lilium x Triangle (VNDB) started by our very own Nosebleed, binaryfail, and Ryechu (Fuwa thread). Currently at TL: 10%
  • The Maji TL team (recently famous for their Majikoi patch release) has begun work on Majikoi S
  • Some progress by the Nursery Rhyme team (Kururu)
  • Rance VI project (Arunaru) broke 30% TL
  • I realized that we haven’t noticed/reported an update on the “To Heart 2” project from February. (TL: 73.4%)
  • (Did you read about our new VN TL updates aggregator yet? It’s worth 30 seconds of your time after you look through this post)

This first post is the hardest to do because it involves a lot of template-ing. Thanks to our new VNTL aggregator tool, I should be able to do weekly updates pretty quickly (30 mins or less). That’s just an estimate, though. I guess we’ll find out next week.

PS: I’m disgusted with myself for using Zaka’s dd/mm/yyyy date format, but sacrifices must be made.

I’m disgusted with you not wanting to use it. -Zaka, proud Swedish viking

This is non-sequitur, but I just finished Deus Machina Demonbane yesterday and was wondering… why the hell has JAST not picked up Kishin Hishou Demonbane? I mean, come on! They already released the first game, why not the sequel? I don’t even care it doesn’t have H-scenes, a Demonbane sequel with freaking mecha battle gameplay sounds pretty damn sweet to me and I’d pay handsomely for it.

In other news, I just wrote a review of a Death Note spin-off light novel by Nisio Isin here:

If you guys want to check it out, that would be appreciated.

I read your review and the user reviews. Seems overwhelmingly positive in reviews, apparently has a twist ending, and it’s Death Note, so I can’t pass it up. I literally just ordered my copy. What I like is it’s on the short side, at 157 pages.

Gotta respect the AstralAir team for doing an overhual, many would just leave it be. I’m grateful they want to go the extra distance. 🙂

They’re made by the same developer so they were done by the same artist.

Re: Dot Kareshi: both groups aren’t related, period. The one that’s at has all three trials translated, but no more. Golden Spirit’s last specific update was in February, exact words: “Translation: 100%
Translation checking: 75%
Proofreading: 50%
Image editing: 100%”
However, they have posted after that requesting proofreaders and stating that they’re “at the final stage”…
For Ken ga Kimi from the same group:
“The translation is at 36%.” ( is the group/leader’s tumblr)
Additional projects that you may or may not know about, as you seem to want a comprehensive list:
Sweet Pool, 100% everything but proofreading and insertion, both of which are at 96%.
Lamento is in Beta Testing
Both of these are on Aarin. (Akaaka should still be going, but I have no~ idea~.)

Oops. I just wasn’t following it. I DO know what’s going on with Akaaka. “Translation: 98% completed Editing: 15% completed, Proofreading is 2/3 of the way through the common route”. Here’s AkaAka (Akaya Akashiya Ayakashino)’s group’s tumblr: Yay BL. Yay lazy Lambda.

I certainly did! Golden Spirit has stolen even more of my time – as if I had any now! …Another for the backlog. It’s getting too long now ;.; … I guess that’s a good thing, though…

I also looked at the new translation tracker and it looks awesome! That’ll be useful. I’ll still have to go on aarin, though, probably…

Hey Tay, thanks for taking the time to make this list.

Just one thing. Alternative projects is not translating Altered Fable, that’s Jutsuki Sen. We’re doing The Day After 01 (currently at 75%, but stay tuned.)

Just wanted to thank you for bothering to find and post the status of VNs being translated. It makes it so much easier to follow their progress (might get myself the aggregator though ; ) )

Still slightly sad over Little Busters! EX/ME extremely extremely slow progress. Which I would have thought would have been translated quicker since Key’s visual novels are one of the most popular ones out there.
But I am sure that due to some RL circumstances the translation slowed down. So if anyone from that team ever reads this; I am cheering you on and will wait as long as it takes. Thanks for bothering to translate the game 😀

Oh god, I can’t believe you quoted my edited file number as ‘a bunch’.
I mean, I know that’s what I put there, but really.
I’m cringing. I’m sorry, I’ll try to get an accurate edit count out on my blog.
