11eyes ~Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shoujo~ 11eyes－罪と罰と贖いの少女－
ForewordI must apologize if I came across as rather sluggish during this interview. I was trying to do two interviews at the same time (for reasons beyond my control) and as you could imagine, it completely threw me off. I am sorry folks
Executive Summary Sabino does anime fansubbing. http://phuzysubs.wordpress.com/Sabino has a long history with visual novels, going right back to the release of To Heart 1. Unyu is a new editor (briefly an editor for Amaterasu’s Inganock) and d_fallen_god is the hacker AND leader.
<@Aaerul> How long have you guys been on the project? <Unyu> I’ve been part of the project since the 12th<Sabino> For me and fallen_god, we’ve been around since… beginning of July I think? <Sabino> so, about 2 months and a bit
<@Aaerul> and have any of you worked on previous VN projects before this one? or anything translation related <Unyu> I was briefly an editor for Amaterasu’s translation of Inganock <Sabino> No VN projects but I also did -and currently doing- video translations <Sabino> right now, I’m translating an anime called Nurarihyon no Mago <Sabino> at http://phuzysubs.wordpress.com/ <Sabino> I also did some amout of translation for stuff like Touhou <Sabino> let’s see… oldest thing that has my name on it seems to be this <Sabino> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XsYhR6nDwk <Unyu> I was briefly an editor for Amaterasu’s translation of Inganock
<@Aaerul> okay and how did you find your way to translating visual novels? <@Aaerul> were you always a fan of VNs? <Sabino> I was a fan of VNs since… the To Heart days? … altho I actually wasn’t “old enough” to play those games when I first saw it xDD <unyu> I was looking through vn projects and saw that the 11eyes project needed an editor
<@Aaerul> so what kind of game is 11eyes. <@Aaerul> why do you think fans of visual novels would want to play it? <d_fallen_god> well the anime is average… <Sabino> the ocerall script is “dark” <d_fallen_god> but the game it self is really good can be compare to F/SN in a way… <unyu> For me personally I wanted to play it for the art and premise <Sabino> I’d say, altho it’s not as mainstream like fate, and doesn’t use the writing style really distinctly like Nasu- <Sabino> it’s still a worthwhile VN if you like the occultistic, magic/real life sort of concept
<@Aaerul> anyone here translate for a different reason? <Sabino> I’m a fan of it, but personally, I think it needs to be realized a bit more <d_fallen_god> yea… they may misunderstand the story of 11eyes because of the anime… <unyu> I’m not necessarily a fan but am highly interested <Sabino> people (on 4chan) say “Oh, but I heard it wasn’t even so good.” <Sabino> when they haven’t even played it <Sabino> I think people can decide whether it’s good or not, after they play it <@Aaerul> in otherwords, give the VN a chance
<@Aaerul> who is more or less, the leader of the group? <Sabino> I guess fallen_god since he takes care of a whole lot of stuff that I can’t even manage xD <Sabino> he’s seriously an awsome multitasker who can complete everything xDD <d_fallen_god> oi oi XD <Sabino> hahaha xD
<@Aaerul> where can I contact you (in the future)? <Sabino> all of us have email as well as blogs… <d_fallen_god> and IMs <Sabino> hey, fallen_god, you think you can add a forum on the thule society page? <Sabino> I think that’ll make it easier for outsiders to contact us about 11 eyes and such
<@Aaerul> thank you so much for your time <@Aaerul> I wish you guys all the best with the project
To round out the night, we released the launch post for @CherryKissGames newest title with the telling name "Manwhore Merchant: Breeding in Bulk". As you can already expect, we stuck @Vuparian into Miel Prison again to get out a review for you, soon.
