Well, I’m back. It’s been a busy week in the VN translation world. We’ve got 3 Fan TL releases plus Nekopara Vol. 0 this week. Do you feel spoiled? Well, you probably should.

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. Any new updates are marked by orange text.

The Zakabox

Zakabox™ Commentary

「 」

 Is Zaka ded?


TAYsteful™ Thoughts

Well, I’m back. And tired. But mostly I’m just back. Decay did a phenomenal job last week. Not only did he step up to the plate when I needed some help, but Zaka threw my VNTS post formatting at him and he figured it out all on his own without any Jedi guidance. Well done, sir.

Speaking of Decay, he found two games which I intended to add to the list this week but which — for various reasons — I held off on until I could get a bit more info. The first one is the nukige ‘Hoka no Onna no Ko to H wo Shiteiru Ore wo Mite Koufun Suru Kanojo’ (VNTS) (link to TL page). Second is the PSP version of ‘Utawarerumono’ (VNDB) (TL group’s site).

There’s a lot I want to say about the projects, but I’m really worn out. I’ve been doing Fuwa-work for the past 5 hours and I haven’t even caught-up on my PMs. Apologies to everyone waiting on me.

This week’s header image comes from Haruko Maniax, one of the three games which released today! Just in case you’re too lazy to scroll up to the top, here are links to all three, again:

  • Haruko Maniax (VNDB) It’s “a spin-off Visual Novel featuring Muv-Luv heroine Kashiwagi Haruko!” Get the patch here.
  • Lamento (VNDB) – Get the patch here. (You’ll need an Aarin account)
  • Lilium x Triangle (VNDB) – You can find the patch here, be sure to thank the team. Congrats to Nosebleed, rainsismyfav, binaryfail, Ryechu, qt panzer!

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.


  • One thing to add/note regarding White Album 2:
    The Introductory Chapter (IC) has received a TLC/update, so it’s come a long way from the awkward and maligned rough translation it had before.

    • I was looking at the scripts and their editor, NaokiP, has been touching them up. A lot of them have indeed gotten quite a bit better, but only one so far is “finalized” according to their chart. WA2 seems like it deserves a really high quality translation so I hope that this disaster can eventually be salvaged.

  • Yosuga no Sora had some small amount of progress, I was looking through the comments of their last post to make sure they were still alive, and they posted they are now 84.07% finished on August 19.

  • pretty sad that koinatsu is gonna come out a the end of these vacation.
    anyway what’s the deal with subahibi and koichoco?

    • Subahibi is in another TLC/editing phase for one or two of its chapters, and we don’t have an estimate from the project leader on how long this is going to take. I initially thought it wouldn’t take long but with no sign of progress yet maybe it will? It will *probably* be out before the end of the year, hopefully much sooner.

      Koichoco is business as usual. Check their site for their monthly updates, another one should hit in a week or so. At their current pace, it should actually finish in a month or two. Assuming that pace holds, of course, we’ll see what it looks like with their next update.
