Visual Novel Translation Status (27/06/2015)

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.

Oh, hey! You’re back. We missed you. How are things? How’s the family? Take a deep breath and immerse yourself into the world of VN TL… right after two quick notes:

  1. Not really related to VN-TL, but have you checked out Helvetica Standard’s next installment in his “How to Code a VN with Ren’Py” series? It’s amazing. Check it out.
  2. I personally know of several LGBT readers and translators who tune in every week, and want to congratulate them on seeing the fruits of their advocacy. Hope you had a chance to party like it was 1999 : ). For those who didn’t hear:


Anyway! Welcome to our weekly VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status) 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 Short Version:
Only the New Stuff

  • Amairo Islenauts – Site is down, but you can get an update from the 11th here. Changes: Masaki TL: 40%, TLC: 25%; Shirley TL: 20%, TLC: 10%

  • Euphoria (MG) – In Scripting. Pre-Order here
  • Free Friends (MangaGamer) – Released! Get it here.
  • HaraKano – (See the “Loe Quality” entry further down, too) “The entire common route is done for Marina, Ayana, and Ren. I am currently revising it for higher quality, spelling, and oversights, so that it will read better from an English perspective. This means re-arranging and re-wording some things, so it will be a step further away from a 1-1 translation, but it’ll just be better.”

Stuff from me/Zaka/helpful friends:

  • Angel Beats! visual novel has released in Japan (VNDB). If you’re playing this and want to write something for the blog, let me know!

  • Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Hits PS Vita This Fall (link)
  • Norn9: Var Commons Coming to PS Vita This Fall (link)

Stuff from /jp/ poster VNTS (thank her/him, not me, if you find this helpful!):

  • Eiyuu Senki – Summer release

The Zakabox

Zakabox™ Commentary



「…jeez, I wake up from low blood sugar bullcarp yet again and this thing has been up for like two hours. I’m just going to edit this in instead of leaving it in a comment like a pleb.

I keep writing 4finity for “4infinity” (the date of the fated reveal is 3 July iirc, and coordinates imply it will be at the LA Conference Center). The question is: will it be Zero Escape 3, or will it be Zero Escape 3? …I mean, it could be something else, but then Aksys would get torched by hordes of angry fans wearing Funyarinpa masks.

Or not.

The Loe Quality Translations guy wanting to work on Mahoyo comes kinda unexpected to me. He’s looking for the decryption key to its files, so if you have that you could always give it to him.

One of my friends from FSG has been pimping Blue* hard, so… I can only recommend it yet again! You can download it all free and legal since it was an authorized translation.

Daitoshikan continuation project was announced with somewhat of a bang… and is now kinda whimpering on. RIP in RL.

If someone gets text hooking for Angel Beats working, please do tell us all. Amairo is only fun when protag-kun is talking to the girls, which is only like half the time!

On a more personal note, I think at least two people on the forums have recently taken the first steps toward getting help for their mental issues. I wish them luck and hope it will work out for them. Remember: anything you’ve heard about seeking help for your problems being weak or weird is wrong.

To cap it off: much love for the recent gay marriage decision. I suppose we can always hope that Japan gets to it sooner or later… though I will be a bit depressed if that somehow leads to less yuri being produced.」


TAYsteful™ Thoughts

Another very busy week in VN TL-dom!

This isn’t very easy for me to say, but I know there are at least 2 projects which haven’t been added this week which should have been, and I need to ask leaders of those projects for help. I only have so much time to make these posts (and trying to add a projects takes more time than you’d think). Please email me/leave a comment below/PM me on Fuwa with your project and its details and remind me to add it sometime before next Friday. It’s difficult to ask for help like that, but I’ve got to maintain my sanity.

This week’s header image comes from If My Heart Has Wings (VNDB) (buy it on J-List). I added the re-porting project to the list (finally!) (< 3 Dragoon), and it took long enough I felt I owed it to the team : P!

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.


  • Now you’re just trolling me, Tay. 🙁

    Do you need help? I know you’ve been busy with a lot of stuff. Maybe I can assist in some way.

    • Some weeks it feels as if you pretty much *write* these things : P, so you’re already a life saver! That blurb was more or less specifically to two groups who keep emailing me cryptically.

      Really appreciate the < 3, tho : ). If the day ever comes that you ever want to take over this project, I'm willing to pay you an outrageously generous $3 a week : P. Until then, you're a huge help already and I can't thank you enough!

  • Okay! I will post extra updates for the ten people who read comments. You guys are cool, so this one’s for you.

    1) A fan translation for the first chapter of Corpse Party 2 is presumed to be releasing on June 29th, that’s just in two days!

    2) Sekai Project/Denpasoft picked up Atom Grrrl!, an 18+ yuri VN with a supposedly Tarantino-inspired storytelling style.

    3) The Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s’ Side 3 fan patches (both versions) have had their final, fully polished releases ( and the translator has moved on to another otome game, Storm Lover Kai:

    4) Nekopara Vol. 0 will be coming out in Comiket 88, and Sekai Project will be translating it, but it appears that it won’t be a simultaneous english/japanese release like the last one was.

    5) Yes, I’ve said this for three weeks now, but in case anyone missed it, Kud Wafter has been picked up again by its translator after defeating both carpal tunnel and depression.

    • Beri naisu. I had to manually approve this comment (we autofilter anything with over 3 links – changed from the default of 2 by my arbitrary decision, by the way), so that’s why it took a while to appear.

      Since y’all in the comments want all the juicy news, be aware that Sekai Project might be getting 恋と、ギターと、青い空。(In weeb, Koi to Guitar to Aoi Sora; in English, Love, Guitars and Blue Skies), a self-proclaimed “LesbianVN”. SP has a habit of retweeting stuff from companies they’re talking with (or maybe even have the license to already?); the same happened previously with Nekopara, for one.

      As far as I can tell it’s about some lesbian musicians traveling the highways of America and being all rock-y and lesbian. They have English names and everything!

      The VN’s OP is kinda NSFW since it essentially has HCGs with blanked out naughty bits. It’s also named Highway To Heaven.

      I fucking love this shit.

      • Apparently it’s by the guys who made Riot Grrrl, though that one seemed kinda more nukige-ish. Also seems to be an “if that one succeeds” thing, le sigh – check the yt vid’s comments if you want the sauce.

    • RE: Kud Wafter — I sent the guy a well-wishes email (and left a comment on the page), but I wasn’t sure that work resumed. That’s why I’ve played hard to get.

      Well, mostly why, anyway : P

    • Okay, so about Corpse Party 2, the countdown timer on their site was pushed back by a few months, and the translator on tumblr is now saying that it is going through a TLC pass that may take a little while. So much for that.

      Also this comments section consists of ten comments from three people. :p

  • It’s 18 minutes past noon and my mum is being rather curt with me about leaving to buy sandals, but at least I wrote a box now. A pretty long box, even. This was posted way late anyway, so it’s just about possible somebody will actually see it!


    • I suppose I need to treat this as a, “The Zakabox was always there. It will always be there. To say otherwise is to deny the truth.” sort of thingh, huh? Fair enough.

      Score one for the mostly-probably-good guys!

      Also… I hope you plan on reporting back about the sandals.

      • I’m thrilled to say that despite my feet being spectacularly incompatible with a generous supermajority of all footwear, I have found a pair that should do quite well. RIP my old trusty sandals, they served me faithfully for many years (I can’t remember that well, but it might have been as many as eight).

  • Why would you put non-VN related news from Kotaku? Not only is that news disgusting but has no place here. Hope you don’t make it a habit.

  • nothing about Chaos;Child?
    I thought that one just got released or something?

    …well I actually also wouldn’t find out if not for Siliconera though

    • It was released in Japan. No english translation has been announced and these posts are for english translations.
