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 Short Version:

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 : )
