VN Translation Status (11/04/2015)

Fourth VNTS post, and going strong. There are a few otome game projects I’m still juggling which didn’t make this week’s list (including a few mentioned in last week’s comments). Sorry about that. In case you haven’t been following our weekly posts, this post (and the three before it) were built by tracking our own updates, instead of using the /jp/ user VNTL’s weekly 4ch post. So. 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

  • CryingWestern, who you might know from Crying TL (the Gore Screaming Show team), has begun uploading the scripts to a bunch of different games (such as Mashiro iro Symphony, MinDeaD BlooD (also fan disc), Sakura Mau Otome no Rondo). He also did a partial interface patch for Majikoi! A-1. He’s doing some cool stuff, so be sure to check out both this post (more info about scripts work) and this post (Majikoi! A-1 interface and more).
  • fault -milestone two- demo out.
  • Hatsukoi 1/1 – Posted new videos (link)
  • Higurashi (Retranslation) (Mangagamer) – A little TL progress (0.2%)
  • Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura Doki – A little less than 1% TL progress
  • Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort – Over 7% editing progress!
  • Lovely x Cation – Site is down. Anybody know if the project is dead?
  • Noble Works – A little less than 1% TL progress
  • Nursery Rhyme – Some new lines done and total slightly lowered, giving net 1% progress. Editing started (currently ~2%) Post
  • Rance 5D – 3% TLC
  • Rance VI – Big bump up to 44.5% TL
  • Tasogaredoki no Kyoukaisen – (Kinda — we got an update about the patch delay. They need to fix technical stuff and QC)
  • White Album 2 – 100 lines
  • Some wiggle room added to several Sekai release dates; added Planet Ruler, November Boy, and Shizuku no Oto (all TBD release dates)
  • (Did you read about our new VN TL updates aggregator yet? It’s worth 30 seconds of your time after you look through this post)
Help Wanted
  • Golden Spirit really needs TL help, especially on Ken ga Kimi. “Due to personal reasons, some had to leave the team, and I also lost contact with old translators (Am I just a bad team-manager or something?) While there are still several translators on the team, one person can only take up so much work. Sure they can keep on translating everything, but with the current members and the amount of work, I’m not even sure when this project can be finished.” (Post link)
Projects removed from this list/VNTL-Moon
  • Dot Kareshi Series by Golden Spirit (Link to more info/patch post)
  • JAST – Littlewitch Romanesque: Editio Regia (buy it on Steam!)
  • Mangagamer – Free Friends 2 (On hold)

The Zakabox

Zakabox™ Commentary

「Huh, so Tay didn’t add the “tell me if I missed something” thing at the bottom? Oh well, do as ye wish. Oh yeah, this is not Tay by the way. This is Zaka, as signified by the text being inside Japanese quote brackets.

…They’re pretty, okay?


I’m not sure if I have much to say here, though I can tip you off on an interesting NaNoRenO VN – The Blind Griffin. Dem production values. I read a bit and it’s fairly interesting, though I stopped because I was up kinda late (to the point where it was early, in chrononormative parlance).

Also, the Tayinator mistakenly dated the post 4 November. Thankfully I was here to correct the error. Seriously though, 4 November? Such a random date. I’d have understood if it was like 12 April or something, but nope nope.


Oh yeah, the other interesting thing would be the fault -milestone two- demo. Do check it out (well, only if you’re read milestone one semi-obviously).」

TAYsteful™ response

Morning of 4/11/2015 – You disgust me, Zaka, with your dd/mm/yyyy and your viking ways. But thanks for mentioning the Blind Griffin! Good catch. Since somebody always asks, today’s image was taken from Littlewitch Romanesque: Editio Regia (buy it on Steam!). Not sure that you needed that clarification… but hey, there it is.

And like Zaka said, looks like I forgot my end-of-post spiel. SO. Here it is: I’m tracking these updates by myself and I’m bound to make a mistake (including having low energy and not being able to add a few Otome games this week and the Monster Girl project). If you find an error, or you think we missed a project, or you want to give us a scoop/update, please let us know in the comments section!

I’ll admit the only game i’m waiting for from Jast, is Shiny days, and Da Capo from MG.
BTW, i’m surprised you put me at the very top… actually surprised you put me in at all.

You and me both, that’s why i put it up there hoping someone would do it.
I had just finished watching the anime by the time the previous team died, and I was so pissed when i found out it originated from a vn.

Thanks for doing that. I downloaded the scripts as soon as I saw them. Can’t make heads or tails of them of course, but if ever I can, they’ll be the first thing I go to translate.

Ew, apparently it didn’t change the actual page link when I changed the name. Oh well, oh well. Also…

“This is FD to Yosuga no Sora. The team is currently focusing on the core game before working on this one.”

“Yosuga no Sora’s FD”, pls (it only had one thankfully)

*Watanagashi tl: 17.7%
*KnS2: Editing 62.1%
*Bokuten: 65.5% / 17.5% TL/edit

yup the vn is way better than its anime adaption, felt me feelings & everything betrayed by the ending where the main heroine gets dumped and all. hope you get someone to work on this amazing vn again, would be a shame if not. also thx for your effords in general, since you do alot of xtrawork, let alone your own project, which i wish the best, too
