Visual Novel Translation Status (13/12/2015)

Hello, my friends. First of all, our sincere apologies for being a day late on this. Tay seems to have been having internet issues so I’m stepping in to sub for him. It’s unfortunate that we’re a day late, but I promise that we won’t miss a full week again unless something drastic happens. Tay said that we’ll be taking two weeks off during the holiday season, but unless he really wants that to happen for reasons other than availability, I’m perfectly capable and willing of keeping this going for you guys.

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.

The Short Version:
Only the New Stuff

  • AstralAir – As always, making solid progress. Up to 60.21%
  • Clover Day’s – Anri’s route is fully translated!
  • Harumade, Kururu. – This is a new project I’m adding this week. They’re 58.6% through the harem route. This “harem” route is actually the opening route of the game, oddly enough.
  • Koichoco – A hotfix for the DMM and “The Best” versions of the game have been released. (link)
  • Koiken Otome – 97.90% TL. Almost there! Not to get anyone’s hopes up, but last week they actually knocked out 25% of the remaining untranslated script, which ain’t bad.
  • Hinomaru – Wut? Yeah so this is a random note for a project that has been untracked and inactive for ages, it seems like something might finally happen with the nearly-complete Hinomaru translation that fell off the map a while ago: Link (VNDB)
  • Rance Quest Magnum – 53% TL.
  • SubaHibi – No “real” progress to report, but there are still signs of activity on the project via editor Deoto’s twitter account. Posting this here to let you guys know it’s not dead.
  • Sukimazakura to Uso no Machi – 19.1% TL.
  • Gahkthun – demo released! (link)
  • Narcissu – Narcissu 0 had a large bump in progress, now at 89.23%.
  • WAS -The Hourglass of Lepidoptera- – Finally getting released on December 15th… kind of. Seems like there’s a problem with the voices and they will be added in post-release piecemeal as they’re ready.
  • Magical Eyes – Red is for Anguish – Release date set to February 29th, 2016. Gotta get hit that lucky date!
  • Wish Tail of the Sixteenth Night – 28.62% TL.
  • Libra of the Vampire Princess – Kickstarter now live! Currently at over $38,000 after two days, not too shabby!

[Zaka status – unknown]


Decay’s Musings

Ahh, there’s no feeling quite like that of a brand new mechanical keyboard. Keyboards are thought to be pretty lame PC components. Everyone always cheaps out and buys some $10 piece of crap at a local shop because it works. But my old keyboard was literally falling apart. It was an old membrane keyboard and the membrane was torn in some parts, causing some keys to be sunken and super sensitive. Welp, after a lifetime of crappy $10 membrane keyboards I decided to take the plunge and “splurge” on this bad boy. It’s by no means a top end model but it seems pretty well constructed and was seemingly the best no-frills mechanical model available at its $80 price point. I went with the MX Brown switch because it seemed like a good compromise between red (no tactile feedback, low resistance) and Blue (high tactile feedback and resistance). I’m happy with it after my first two days with it, it seems like a good buy if you want a solid mechanical keyboard without overpaying.

And so ends my second Fuwanovel review? Sure! In case you missed it, last week I reviewed euphoria. It was actually the first real game review I’ve ever written, and I’m happy with how it turned out. One of the main things I wanted to get across was that regardless of what I thought of the VN, it’s sometimes worth getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing something new and different. Euphoria has a very scary reputation, but I think people should be willing to steel themselves and give it a shot, despite this. It just might surprise you if you do. Also, after posting this review, I decided to join the FuwaReviews team “full-time,” which basically means that I’ll be forced to write reviews for them on a monthly basis or else face the death penalty. In exchange, sometimes I might get a free VN, maybe. Seemed like a good deal at the time. Wish me luck!

I added the Harumade Kururu project this week. They’re making decent weekly progress and it’s a relatively popular VN. It’s another one of those “genre-shift” VNs, it starts out looking like a standard harem nukige and makes an abrupt lateral into hard science fiction, almost completely ditching the sex after this raunchy opening. Apparently this isn’t a spoiler so we can just talk about it? I tend to think that people overrate fiction with genre-shifts in general. Part of me wonders if Muv Luv would have been better without Extra. Still though, I hope HaruKuru is as good as people say. If so, I really look forward to the translation.

It’s just a week and a half until Gahkthun and my groin is aching furiously in anticipation. I’m pretty sure I’m overhyped, at this point. The trial is out, so give it a spin! I found it a very enjoyable experience. I stopped after finishing the first chapter in it because I want to go in as fresh as possible. The translation is great, as expected, and it really seems like the VN has a load of potential. Someone on the FuwaReviews team will review it, whether that’s me or not, I cannot say.

Finally, I can assure you that the boys over at The Oxford Comma is Superior Subs are still hard at work on finishing off the Noble Works patch before their harsh self-imposed Octember deadline is up. So this could be a very busy Christmas season for many a VN lover. I wonder if there will be any additional surprised before the year is up? It seems that Subahibi is actively being edited again, and SakuSaku is probably getting pretty close as well. So maybe, just maybe, if we wish hard enough there will be a Christmas miracle. And man, it feels good to type on a decent keyboard again.

This week’s header is Anri from Clover Day’s.

[Tay is currently engaged in his ongoing struggle with his troublesome internet providers – Decay]


Hello, I'm Decay, an avid fan of visual novels and a regular poster on Fuwanovel. Also, I now review and write about VNs officially for Fuwanovel? Yeah, that started happening at some point. You may also see me on VNDB as dk382.

“Finally, I can assure you that the boys over at The Oxford Comma is Superior Subs are still hard at work on finishing off the Noble Works patch before their harsh self-imposed Octember deadline is up. ”
Didn’t you say some weeks ago that it was impossible to finish the project in the estimated time (which is fine, people have lives) and to not expect anything before january?
