Visual Novel Translation Status (22/10/23)

Welcome to the Fuwanovel VNTS, where we shamelessly copy the work of one illustrious 4chan /jp/ member in collating translation progress and add minor dabs of value through corrections and additions. Entries with updates this week in bold.

Hello, welcome to the new Fuwanovel! Yeah, if you’re reading this you may have noticed that there’s a new website live now. This took nearly half a year to do, because a lot of different ideas clashed, but it’s finally here! The feedback for the website itself has been largely positive and we’re glad for that.

This website will now be the foundation for all the other projects we’re planning to tackle. The blog was just the beginning, and the forums and the cultivation of multiple socials will be our next focus for development, together with some technological advancements and possible tools for you guys to use.

But this is all very much future stuff, so let’s stay on the ground and in VNTS. Let’s look at the newest week! It’s pretty weak on the fan translation side, but there’s a couple updates for the official ones, cool.

The Zakabox???

Hata thought he could write his post first, but still put mine on top. Also, he implied I wrote the header, but that was him! What a naughty boy. I’m leaving this in to clarify, but I’ll actually write my piece after his. Also, I instinctively fixed a few linguistic issues in his writing. Couldn’t just leave “inofficial” in on my watch.

Hata za meiwaku

Zaka za Meiwaku has already mentioned all the important things in the header, so we can actually start with the VNTS immediately. I still got to do like my Spooktober coverage, so I’m just quickly going through everything here. Let’s go!

Tsui no Sora Remake is around 60% translated and 55% edited. This is honestly some great progress and we might look for a release in 2024. Scaji, the writer of the game, has actually liked a post about a fan translation for one of his games before – H2O’s. It would honestly be super interesting to see a huge creator like him endorse fan translations of lesser available works!

Funfact: We recently added a team member to Fuwa called Phantomosaka and I keep getting their name wrong and think they’re PhantomZero, the translator of this TnS translation, haha.

There’s a 70% partial patch for Tsuma Netori by the secretive Rattan Man Translations. There’s sooo many interesting nukige out there, but we only really cover Miel-titles by Cherry Kiss on the blog. Or the occasional Saikey title. Maybe we need to dig some more and pursue these fan translation projects more. If you’re interested what Rattanman’s done in the past, check here.

And that’s already the unofficial stuff, weird right?

On the official side, we have an interesting development! MangaGamer has some upcoming releases and two of them have been posted online on Reddit! The publisher finally did the step back to Reddit to post about their releases. This is a great step for r/vns, the split-off subreddit that is also in charge of the “Visual Novels Discord“. They announced the release the 3rd part of the Nightmare x Vampire trilogy and a new Higurashi Version! There will also be Hana Awase coming out this week on the 26th. MangaGamer definitely has a busy end of the month – maybe a reason why they aren’t showing up at Anime Week Atlanta this weekend. (Please, release the schedule!)

Gears of Dragoon: Fragments of a New Era is now out on JAST and three days later on Steam! While Nook gave this game a 4/10, I doubt it can be that bad. It’s a dungeon crawler RPG… what’s there to fuck up? Well, so in general Gears of Dragoon: Fragments of a New Era is a weirdly named title because it is actually Gears of Dragoon 2, the first part hasn’t been localized yet. Ninetail recently announced that they’re working on Gears of Dragoon 3 which looks like an even more attractive title! You can grab it here now!

SekaiProject has a huge swath of new updates, but the most saddening one is that the release of UsoNatsu that was supposed to go out on the 24th got delayed again due to Steam’s submission process. What could be in a harmless yuri game that doesn’t vibe with Steam?

Other than that, there’s updates for My Academy’s Special Place, Rewrite+ Harvest Festa, Yume to Iro de Dekiteiru, Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade and Animal Trail Girlish Square LOVE+PLUS. Can we maybe talk about why the fuck Harumade Kururu is eternastalled!!! I wanna read another Meruge 🙁

Anchor/ACID/whateverthefuck launched a Kiminozo KS for the Japanese audience that Eigospeakers can also back via Paypal. The details are elaborated closer in a post by our writer Sharingan. There might be a 18+ Patch in unofficial ways – I’d love if this happened.

Lastly, there’s just nukige from Cherry Kiss with Ghost Girl Ghussy: XXXL Edition and another giga-MTL game called Hentai Hotlady.

No clue what SEKAI/SUBETEEZNUTS is. But here’s a deez nuts joke.

Not too exciting this week. Next week there is AWA (Anime Week Atlanta) and one of our lads, Sabernero, will be visiting. Let’s hope the DLSite and JAST Panels have some amazing stuff to present! Okay, cya next week, lads!」

Za-Zakabox

「I remember I had this friend who would use “za” for “the” all the time. It actually showed up in my informal writing a bit at the time, which is kinda funky looking back on it. It’s kinda sad, man’s moved on from weebshit. I even did several podcasts with you, Babi! Eh, I’ll live I guess. Friends come and go, but having dumb niche interests is eternal.

Anyway, I have to say Hata covered things pretty well. The great part about having him first is that now he has to link everything to vndb, but technically I don’t since he’s already done it. The bad part is I don’t really have a comment… Okay, let’s do an impromptu rating of everything in bold this week:

  • Tsuire: 7/10 scat-ji moment
  • Tsuma Netori: 0/10 ntr coomer shit
  • Nightmare x Vampire: 5/10 coomer shit but I think the CGs were good
  • Higurashi Hou: 8/10 though honestly I don’t remember which are the good bonus chapters anymore
  • Gears of Dragoon: 0/10 probably overcomplicated gameplayge with undiscoverable UI
  • VB Hollow fandiscs: 0/10 same shit
  • Usonatsu: 8/10 it’s interesting yurige but people that read it seem a bit mixed. Also no porn. I love moderate amounts of porn.
  • AKADEMII NO SEIIKI: 4/10 moegay
  • Rewrite+: 5/10 everyone says the new rewrite ending is actually worse than the OG and I imagine they’re still using that ghastly “Sizuru”
  • Yume to Iro de Dekiteiru: 5/10 moege are made of dreams and colors its true
  • Chiisana Kanojo no Serenade: 5.5/10 moege again? I think the OP of this has a good map on osu though so ill add half a point.
  • Animal trail girlish moege: moege
  • Kiminozo: 6/10, the one JOP I can trust said it’s got pacing worse than a festinating Parkinsons patient back in the day, and while our article on the subject gives it as a definitive for some reason, I don’t trust in The Hinted Patch until the patch is out. Remember how meme tier long it took for Grisaia? Dies? Actually, I guess Grisaia was a mere 3 months. Dies was six… You know these weren’t as long as I remember them. Dies was out so long that I got radicalized by some salty translation nitpickers (not the anti-loc kind. The autistic-about-quality-localizer-kind.) that it wasn’t worth reading and I should wait until I could in Japanese. Then I realized Muramasa was more to my taste. Then I didn’t read that much of that either. Look, life is a fuck and we live in a neverending spiral of chaos, you can’t expect me to have any order in my life. I’M NOT COPING MOM
  • Destiny Star Girlfriend: moege again???
  • Ghost Ghussy: cherry kiss insane title game/10 (they have english VA for this or something? kinda weird but maybe it works lol)
  • Hentai HOTLADY: ecchi coldlady/10

Man, “festinating” is a sick ass word. Sure, nobody will understand you, but if you’re as autistic as me that’s just a good thing! It doesn’t make you think at all of what it actually means though; “fester” is what comes up when I try to reason about it. Maybe it’s a good thing it’s no longer in use. Did you know “craven” has nothing to do with “craving”? The English language is a beautiful maze. Some would say it’s ugly, but I say its wonkier parts give it character. The language really feels lived in. By so many different languages. At so many different times…」

Zakamutt

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.

That’s some nice looking new site all right. Anyway as for this week, obviously the most notable release is Gears of Dragoon 2 which had good looking graphic, although as for the gameplay let’s just say that you may need to expect it as old school Dungeon crawling RPG with a lot of encounter and all. Also it’s too bad that Shukusei no Girlfriend and Usonatsu need to be delayed because Valve is in the mood for being bureaucratic, so hopefully we can get both released in this year.

Anyway, here’s my VNTS Review for this week and I hope you’ll enjoy it.
