VN Translation Status (29/05/2015)

Written by Tay

In case you were not aware, we have cleaned out our subscription database (it was yet another casualty in the war against the spam bot hordes). To continue receiving email updates from the Fuwazette you will need to re-subscribe on this page.

Well, we made it. Somehow we survived the pre-apocalyptic hellscape that was this¬†past week (was it really, really¬†long for anybody else besides just me?), and that means it’s time for more visual novel translation updates. This post was written in the presence of Journey’s ‘Greatest Hits’ album, so if you feel inspired and/or moved while reading this post, you know who to thank.

Anyway! Welcome to our weekly VNTS 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. There is commentary by myself and Zaka at the end of the post.¬†Any new updates are marked by orange text.

The Zakabox

Zakabox‚ĄĘ Commentary



This took a good while longer than I expected. And to think I used to be able to whip one of these out in an hour! Well, part of the problem was that VNTL-Moon exploded. It has since been fixed, but I was definitely grumpy and hypertensive for a while there.

This section has been renamed “TAYsteful‚ĄĘ Thoughts”. “Why?”, you ask? Well, I no longer have the time (or energy) to get up and write my blurb after Zaka has written the Zakabox, so this section hasn’t really been a response to Zaka’s commentary for a while now.

It’s been a busy week for VNs: three¬†releases (Grisaia, a nukige game from MG, and Sakura Fantasy Ch 1), two games added to our tracking list/VNTL-Moon (Holy Breaker picked up, Blue* added), and a whole host of games falling off the list. Whew. Makes me tired just thinking about it.

RE: Fuwa and Sekai — I’ve been getting several PMs/emails asking why Fuwa hasn’t done a better job covering Sekai’s Grisaia release¬†— some¬†sites have even come¬†out with reviews, and we haven’t had any coverage. It’s largely¬†my fault: I reached out to Sekai at the end of April¬†to try and get this planned, and somehow their response got archived in my inbox without me seeing it. By the time I noticed it, much of May had already slipped past. I did reply, but I haven’t heard back from them — so, my apologies to Evan and everybody at Sekai for dropping the ball.¬†They’ve been great to work with so far, and as long as they’re willing to give it another go, I’m game.

RE: That link to MangaGamer’s Nukige Title — I’m opposed to promoting nukige games on Fuwanovel, but a handful of you (who, I can only assume, watch my every move looking for a chance to shiv me and take the Fuwa throne) noticed that Ryechu’s been allowed to post nukige game reviews on the reviews hub. Those reviews and the link up above aren’t indicative of a policy shift (as has been whispered in certain dark corners). I don’t have any plans to add nukige titles to the front site, but links to releases and Ryechu’s reviews will probably continue to happen.

This week’s header image (as far as I know) comes from Clover Day’s to celebrate Astro’s giveaway (rules/entry here) (VNDB). Have a nice week, everybody : )

About the author


I'm the Fuwanovel community admin and a big fan of Visual Novels. The easiest way to get a hold of me is via a PM on the Fuwanovel Forums, by twitter (@ArchmageTay), or by email.


  • “* CryingWestern has put back up his Visual Novel Scripts (VNS) page (link). Check out that page/touch-base with him for more info. (PS: Sorry for being so slow getting back to you, CW! Still haven‚Äôt heard back, myself, but sorry you had to put up VNS waiting on me)”

    it’s ok, i’ll keep doing it like this until further notice…

  • According to Steam reviews Sakura Fantasy is a wonderful game. It’s awesome to have a trustworthy resource to rely on when looking for information…

    Good to see Grisaia on Steam.

    The RPG fan within me is ecstatic at Rance VI’s progression.

    The announcement of ‘Norn9: Var Commons’ is wonderful news for otome fans. I predict much rejoicing and merriment.

      • The Steam reviews of Sakura Fantasy (and all the Sakura games) are obviously untrustworthy, that’s not in question.

    • I’m not 100% sure, anymore. I think at one point there was talk about an 18+ patch on denpasoft sometime this year…? I don’t want to lead you astray, tho, so hopefully another knowledgeable person comes along who can give us some confirmation.

    • No patch, standalone release. Denpasoft will indeed carry it. The initial timeline was a vague “one month after all-ages version”.

    • I’ve asked through multiple avenues and I haven’t been able to get an answer from them about the 18+ version’s release. I dunno why they’re being tight-lipped about it. I guess they don’t want to be seen talking about porn at all when releasing what they feel like should be a respectable VN with some amount of mass appeal.

      But they already took some people’s money for the 18+ versions of the entire trilogy via backerkit, so either they release those versions or have to refund a lot of money. The plan was a month after the all-ages release. Let’s just hope they stick to that.

      • I actually see that they did say something about this during today’s update on the kickstarter page:

        “Yes, Denpasoft will be delivering the 18+ versions. The first game does not have a date yet because we JUST finished getting the game ready for Steam. We now have to redo engine integration and testing before we can give a firm date on when it will be released.”

        That’s probably all you’ll get from them for now.

      • They don’t know yet when it will be released. So far all of their stuff has been on Steam, Humble, and/or Denpasoft only. Based on that, it is unlikely that it will be someplace else – like J-List.

    • wow okay thanks everyone, already downloaded the first one but I guess I’ll buy it if they release a 18+ version (supporting industry and such) and can’t wait to play the sequels.

  • Thanks as always for your updates. But.. pleeease Majikoi S write her name correctly. ): It’s Kokoro not Kororo (was wrong in last weeks update, too). She’s one of my favourite girls for various reasons owing to my preferences so it’s a bit disheartening.

    They did not yet charge me for my 18+ Addon but I already read the first VN of Grisaia at least 3 times anyway.. I guess I’ll wait until the second is released and read the first in preparation.

    • If nobody says anything, maybe Tay could be tricked into putting Lilium x Triangle onto the front page, just like the SonoHana games. :p

  • i want to join in vn translation iam a half japanese with good english and i want to translate vn in my free time if anyone is interested just let me know
