    Gin'iro, Haruka

    Well, it looks like someone beat me to breaking the news, but I'm just happy I'm going to get to read another Tone Works VN.

    If My Heart Have Wings Series and A Sky Full of Stars

    Unfortunately, if I understand correctly, Moenovel is directly owned by Pulltop, and thus it is very unlikely that anyone else is going to be allowed to do official translations of Pulltop VN's. So I'm left to grumble and hope there are motivated people who want to do restoration patches for Pulltop's western releases.
  3. I don't really mind, but I know next to nothing about Hooksoft and their games, so this wasn't a title I was eagerly anticipating. I still intended to get it, but that's largely because right now I have faith in NekoNyan translating titles I'll actually enjoy.

    Tsuki no Kanata de Aimashou

    The after stories were, hands down, my favorite part of Hoshi Ori. It's sad that it looks like Tsurezurescans has broken up, they did some great work. Now I'm just hoping that Nekonyan (or pretty much anyone other than Sekai Project) get's the licenses to localize Tone Works games.

    Tsuki no Kanata de Aimashou

    I would love to see NekoNyan get some of Tone Works VNs. I recently finished playing Hoshi Ori, and I think that one made it all the way to Kamige territory, and Hatsukoi 1/1 was pretty good as well. (Also, the Tsurezurescans fan translation group is amazing. Their fan patches are easily professional quality)
  6. You're a brave man if you could enjoy the ride as a type-moon heroine.
  7. I play them exclusively on my gaming PC. I wouldn't mind playing them on a tablet, as I think they would work well there, but I haven't been able to find any VNs for Android that are both translated into English and that I want to read. Add to that how much money I've already spent on VNs for the PC versions, and I don't think I'll ever bother switching.
  8. It'd have to be Sanjou Makoto from Nobel Works for me. She was my favorite character in that game and no route.
  9. Welcome! I have also been revising my standards upwards as to what VNs I'm willing to pay for. A lot of stuff put out by the "big" localization companies is, in my opinion, trash that's not worth reading, let alone paying for. I also agree on VNs bringing back memories of "choose your own adventure" books and the like. I've mostly been staying away from "kinetic" VNs, because for me, once you've taken the choices out I might as well just read a book, which would be FAR cheaper!

    Other Yuzusoft Titles?

    That looks like the start of a slippery slope in which all my money gets spent on "collectables". Truly a frightening thing...

    Regular Update Schedule For Project Status

    It's tough, isn't it? On the one hand, I REALLY want to know how the various projects are coming along, but on the other hand I'm really pleased with the quality NekoNyan is putting out so far, and I don't want to joggle their elbow and piss them off.

    Other Yuzusoft Titles?

    Having played the full version of Dracu-riot myself, the only thing I think it needs is a solid editing pass and it's good to go, the translation copy I have is completely done, even the "secret" route is fully translated, as well as all of the menus. I honestly wouldn't object too much if SP had just dumped it onto the market as is without even an editing pass and asked money for it. It's already in good enough condition to pay for, in my opinion. Hopefully Yuzusoft is pleased with how NekoNyan has handled Sanoba Witch and will take Dracu-riot away from SP and give it to NN. I'd really like to be able to buy a legit English translation. As for why Yuzusoft would give SP the license and then not allow them to release? My best guess would be that Yuzusoft looked at what SP did with their localization and decided they didn't like it for some reason, but that's just a guess.

    Trails of Cold Steel 3 Localization Announced

    I saw somewhere that CS III doesn't import saves from II, but IV imports from III. I don't know if that's accurate, but if it is, I might just buy the PS4 version instead of waiting for a PC port. I DO have a PS4, even though I almost never use it.

    Trails of Cold Steel 3 Localization Announced

    Ah, I didn't even realize the other two games were on something OTHER than PC for English, lol. Guess I'll wait to see if a PC port is also announced. I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer.

    Trails of Cold Steel 3 Localization Announced

    I mean, seriously, I've spent HUNDREDS of hours completing multiple playthroughs of both I and II, anticipating being able to import my saves to CSIII when it was finally localized, and now it's going to be PS4 only? WHY? I'll still buy it. Dang-it.

    Trails of Cold Steel 3 Localization Announced

    YES! Wait, it's not Xseed? What? And they aren't doing a PC port? WHAT THE HECK!?

    RIP Fureraba 100% steam positive review

    While I can acknowledge the theoretical possibility, I have trouble imagining them leaving it running THAT long. Even if they left it running while going to bed, that would normally only add eight to ten hours at most. Over sixty hours is very close to running the game non stop for three straight days. Now, I'm a weirdo who always turns his computer OFF whenever I go to bed or leave the house, so I have trouble understanding leaving ANY program running when I'm not using the computer, but that's just me.

    RIP Fureraba 100% steam positive review

    Same here. I usually have a pretty good idea by the time I'm one to two hours in whether or not I'll enjoy a VN, and if the answer is no, I just delete it from my computer. I'd rather replay one of my favorites then spend three days 100%ing a game I don't even enjoy!

    Request submission for Haru to yuki,

    I've slowly started working on learning Japanese myself, but WOW is it slow going. I still have to check my Hiragana and Katakana charts for the right sounds, and only have a couple dozen Kanji memorized.

    RIP Fureraba 100% steam positive review

    Oy, why would you spend sixty four hours on a VN that you can't recommend, LOL. Fureraba is far from my favorite, mostly because of the MC, who I can't stand, but I still enjoyed it as a whole, and intend to buy the fandisk when NekoNyan gets around to releasing it! Honestly, I could understand someone not liking it and giving a negative review, but not after spending well over sixty hours on it...

    If you decide to check out If My Heart Had Wings, look for the fan re-translation and content restoration patch. The official localization was terrible, and made of the routes an unreadable mess of gibberish. But with the fan re-translation, it's easily one of my top 10 (might even make the top 5) favorite VN's, so you might want to add it to your list at some point!

    5 requests in no particular order

    I've never checked out Subahibi, every time I look at it, some of those tags scare me off. The other thing is, I've found very well done VNs that just aren't to my tastes, best example being Fate/Stay Night. It's a great game, very well written, but the lack of a good ending for Saber pissed me off, and then Heaven's Feel was just messed up from start to finish. So even though I've seen a lot of people rate Subahibi very highly, I'm kinda scared to give it a go.
  23. DarthSteel


    I think I remember reading that JAST got the localization rights for Majikoi, but no clue when or if it'll ever get an official English release. If you can find a Japanese copy, there is a VERY good fan translation patch for both games.
  24. DarthSteel


    I guess I'm in the minority, my favorite character in Grisaia was Amane, and I couldn't STAND Michiru, lol. Majikoi and Majikoi S are great VNs, well worth the time to 100% both games. My first VN was CLANNAD, which still holds a special place in my heart. I'd really recommend trying that one if you haven't yet.
