Visual Novel Translation Status (21/11/2015)

This is a very special week. And, no, I’m not just talking about how I finally added a third column to the official licensed games sections to appease all you fans with obsessive compulsive tendencies. I speak, of course, about the long-awaited release of Clannad (via Sekai Project on Steam). This is a very special game, and its re-release is kind of poignant in its own way. Our hobby has really grown over the last few years, and picked up some long-awaited momentum. That said — don’t forget about the other big release this week, Euphoria, which comes out on Friday:

Monday (11/23): Clannad (Sekai Project) – Link

Friday (11/27): Euphoria (MangaGamer) – Link

Anyway! Welcome to our weekly VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status) series, in which we track visual novel translation updates in-house (we don’t rely on /jp/ posts on 4ch, for example) and post it for your enlightenment and enjoyment each Saturday. If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let me know in the comments. Any new updates are marked by orange text.

Zakabox™ Commentary

[I felt… no particular disturbance in the Force. As if Zaka looked up from Hearthstone long enough to remember VNTS, then went back to it, anyway – Tay]


Decay’s Musings


[Decay didn’t have anything to say this week]

TAYsteful™ Thoughts

This week’s upgrade: 3 column-format in the JAST, MangaGamer and Sekai Project sections, which now include VNDB links. I dedicate this change (which did actually take quite a while to do) to the legions of OCD fans who bug me each week about inconsistencies in the post formatting. Sometime in the near future, I’m going to standardize the column widths, too, but today is simply not that day.

One thing I hear pretty often is that these VNTS posts are a big step up from the VNTS updates of yesteryear. I think the /jp/ poster, as well as demeteloaf over on reddit (who is a really nice guy), do a pretty good job, but I’m always happy to hear that readers are enjoying our posts. There are a lot of improvements I want to make in the next few months, and I’m really interested in hearing from all of you about what you’d like to see.

So! Today I’m confirming that at the end of December, I’m going to be launching a feedback survey about VNTS as part of our annual user feedback drive. As part of my push to increase site transparency, I’ll also be publishing concrete statistics about these posts (and the site in general) at the end of the year. So… yeah. If you’re a numbers nerd like me, look forward to that, I guess!

I finished the campaign (and epilogues) of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, and I can’t say I was impressed with how the story was wrapped up. I don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone, but if any of you readers played and finished the game and want to chat about it, please let me know! I’ve got all sorts of mixed feelings.

Did any of you pick up High School Romance when it came out this week? (Link) What did you think of it? I’ve only heard two people’s impressions (one gave it a 4, the other a 7), and I think we’d all like to hear more.

This week’s header image comes from CLANNAD to celebrate its release this coming week! Get the game here. Have a nice week, everybody!

im scared of reading euphoria…..

first comment

The new 3-column layout is… LRN2HTML

Actually the “Database” column is too wide (it should be the smallest one) and it makes hard to read the Status column.

So many releases, so little time, so null monies… and the size of my backlog is still sky-high anyway :/

8 years ago

I don’t have a great suggestion on how to list it differently, but I think something in the Higurashi listing needs to reflect two different things:
1) The chapter that MangaGamer releases (which should correctly be removed from the listing a short time after it is out, like you’re doing)
2) All the other chapters that are currently out with a lesser translation and will be re-translated in the future

8 years ago

Why MikuMikuDance (MMD) is in the list? It doesn’t look like a visual novel:

Whoo!!! euphoria!!! I’m so excitedly to playing this eroge!!!

*breath in out*

So you know how with Bunny Black 2 Aroduc, the translator, is working on a secret project beforehand? Well, a month ago he posted an update about his secret project and his plans for BB2. Sorry for not bringing it to you sooner!

“Speaking of which, while I doubt I’ll finish [the secret project main scripts] this week (they’re mostly large scripts), I’m going to be doing my damnedest to finish them up by the end of next week. And that’ll only be a mere ~4 months after when I had originally hoped to be done. *sigh* Who could’ve possibly known that having a job and being responsible for the life of a feral poop-machine could take so much time? The porn game coverage eats a few hours away from it a week too though [decay note – Aroduc blogs about untranslated eroge as he plays them, check it out!]. Not that this means any kind of release is imminent. That’s just the main scripts. There’s a ludicrous amount of other work to be done, including simply more porn that’s just… there. Not even fun porn at that. Oh, and it still has a number of technical problems, so… yay for that. Maybe this time next year, it’ll actually be in a decent condition to release. Or maybe I’ll sit on it as part of my inscrutable designs (and/or all the additional/related/supplemental material is done).

The plans for now though, are to take a short (hopefully) 1-2 month break from all the extra headaches to come with doing the rest of that, and rip through Bunny Black 2, hopefully this time doing as little of the interface work myself as possible. My plan is to translate a chunk through the initial dungeon, up to the first boss, and then get the interface put together and throw it into the ravening masses ASAP to find problems to avoid the same kind of fiasco that was BB1’s initial patch release. It’s still not a tremendously long game though, particularly by script length, and doesn’t have quite as many gigantic (and error-prone) lists of random stuff as BB1, so hopefully it should be a bit smoother all around. Famous last words, I’m aware.”

I so want to read Himawari, hope it will come out as soon as possible.

You didn’t know I had a review copy of Highschool Romance that’ll be coming out next week?

For shame, Tay.

Any news on Subahibi? I’m praying that it isn’t dead, because it’s a top tier game. <3
