VN Translation Status (13/06/2015)

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, here we are again. It’s almost as if nothing ever happened and I didn’t miss a post last week… Remember that there is commentary by myself and Zaka at the end of these posts, and this week I’ve got a blurb about Walkerman, my absent post, and the Dev Guide for Engaging Fuwa. In theory, Zaka should also have a blurb. We’ll see if that happens. Also — please be aware this post was written in the presence of several podcasts and the OST of Final Fantasy 8.

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™ Commentary

「Did you know that Tay actually inserts these Japanese style brackets now, not me?

It feels weird, but weirdly welcoming. I just said weird twice.


Considering my offbeat doujin VN fetish, my interest in the imminent release of Blue* should not come as a surprise to the three of you (I’m an optimist now?) that saw me rave about Brass Restoration on Twitter (Tay started the whole self-promotion thing, okay?). I still have to finish Brass Restoration though. I should probably do that. You should read it too, in my incredibly unbiased opinon – you can download it here.

I think I mentioned this earlier (maybe only on Twitter…), but the MangaGamer not selling Rose Guns Days any more thing extends to all of 07th Expansion’s titles – basically, MG’s contract with them ended. Higanbana and RGD both seem to have no ways at all to buy them through digital download now, though I’m not sure of the Umineko situation. I suppose at least the first chapter of Higurashi’s re-translation is out now.

I wonder how many editing passes KoiRizo will get until it’s ready for QC. I suppose it will be done When It’s Done.- hopefully not while I’m away this July… for reasons.

SubaHibi hype continues. Three. One. Four. Four. July 20th.

Lilium x Triangle is a nukige. A yuri nukige. It is fully translated and edited. I am excited and moecited for its release. This post should increase the hype counter, right? PLEASE INCREASE THE HYPE COUNTER.

I tried starting a thread on VN direction today. It was a post with real effort put into it; the kind of post needed to exhaustively shame Moenovel, discuss the color of moderators’ usernames, or perhaps discuss whether H-scenes are really necessary in VNs. It got me ~five forum likes, and one reply. Can you help improve this tragic state of affairs?

I added some delicious link markup (to @KuoeeVN) in the Taythoughts. We can always hope this will not make him entirely furious… and with that, Adieu.」

TAYsteful™ Thoughts

This post wore me out. So many updates and blog posts! Congrats to all of the teams who have posted updates in the last two weeks. Very exciting!

Walkerman Picked Up: I’ve been talking to several devs and Fuwa users about Walkerman lately. Turns out they’ve partnered with Sekai! Here’s a message from John about the change:

John from Scalemail here. We’ve recently partnered with Sekai Project for the production of our Visual Novel/Adventure Game: Walkerman. We’ve released the prologue chapter for free on our page. We’re ten days into our Kickstarter now, which you can check out here. Check out our Twitter for more updates.

Dev Guide to Using Fuwanovel: I’m almost finished with the guide for engaging with Fuwanovel which has proven to be fairly useful as I’ve worked with devs over the last few months. The guide is written for the here-and-now, but a lot of much-needed improvements for how we’re orchestrating the blog posts, these VNTS posts, reviews, and social media are in the works. The guide will be updated as we go along. I’m also planning on establishing a dev email list to keep everyone on the same page. I’ve been thrilled by how many devs (large and small!) have been working with me lately, and I want to make the process quicker and easier for all of us.

Last week’s absent post: Sometimes life gets in the way of hobbies, and I expect that 4-5 times a year I’ll be unable to post a VNTS update. I’ll try to find a replacement poster for those weeks (Zaka only got a few hours’ notice last week, so that wasn’t quite ideal) going forward, but I know some of you were frustrated by the non-post. Rest assured I did get your emails.


This week’s header image comes from Blue* to celebrate the team’s expected release on Sunday! Be sure to follow them on twitter (@KuoeeVN) for the latest (or read the project thread)! Have a nice week, everybody : )


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.

I’ve got nothing else to add, but thank you for the hard work doing this (almost :p) every week.

Also on a side note, Basic TL is teasing an imminent June update for koichoco. Pretty interesting timing since they do those at the end of the month (usually). I wonder if there’s some special reason why they’re not waiting…

Reply to  Tay
8 years ago

Well, let’s just say that I think there’s a greater than 50% chance that Koichoco’s full patch is going to release tomorrow (sunday). The way they’re teasing it seems to heavily indicate this.

Also, here’s something I missed until I saw it on /jp/, Kud Wafter’s translation project is alive again!

Reply to  Decay

Oops, I was wrong about Koichoco :p. Well, I only said over 50%, it was still basically a coinflip in my mind. Oh well.

8 years ago

AstralAir updated to 22,88%.

8 years ago

Thanks for using Blue* up in the banner! I hope it wasn’t too much effort to scurry around to find the graphic, since I would’ve gladly given you our stash of graphics, had you asked. And I just finished my release post on the project page as well, so I hope people can check out our work some time soon.

8 years ago

Are there any updates for “Koiken Otome” ??
It’s almost 3 month since last update………
I hope they don’t “dropped”, since remaining TL only 5%

8 years ago

blue* is finally out & looks quite satisfying. reagarding koiken otome…please have abit more faith into them, as they already told us countless times, that they´ve no intention in dropping it. just because its going snail pace at times, doesnt mean there´s no work been done. rl always comes first & as long as some hardcore fanboys wont be sponsoring 100% of their life expenses, enabling their members working fulltime on the project, delays here & there are inevitable.

8 years ago

sooo koichocos june update is out & they got a new member on board speeding up the remaining work.
seems like those ever paranoial fanboys need looking for another project worrying about.
Résumé of the day: less pantsus getting wetted!

8 years ago

On the thread for Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai, they are looking for helpers to speed things up. Should it be on the Recruiting portion above?

No progress seemingly for Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete. Hope it’s still on-going.
