Decay’s Musings


Hello all. Super short commentary section this week, sorry. I’ll just leave you with some quick thoughts:

  1. I don’t think anyone is expecting anything of decent quality from Moenovel’s next project, me included. However, I’d like to point out that it seems very unlikely the same people will be doing the actual translation, based on how these companies hire for these kinds of things combined with it having been over three years since IMHHW. Maybe this time it will be better? Don’t hold your breath, they’ll still probably go with the cheapest possible option. But you never know with these things.
  2. I’m getting pretty tired of adding a new Sakura game every single week…
  3. Daito is a real fun moege so I’m glad things are back on track for it.
  4. The upcoming Hearthstone expansion looks like it has some cool and inventive new cards and I’m looking forward to it.
  5. Watch Westworld.

    • It’s safe to assume that all of that progress wasn’t made in the span of a single week, but instead was untracked for a length of time, for whatever reason.

  • As much as I think the Sakura games are trash, the art is pretty enough that I’d keep them on the banners.

  • Lol i didnt expect a TL for Daitoshokan i’m really surprised and excited at the same time, because of how good the anime adaptation especially story-wise in just 12 episode you can expect a complete story out of it. Its not just your average anime that is for advertisement sake only.

  • How’s memory’s dogma age rating? VNDB didn’t specify and I’m trying not to spoil myself opening some random google link. @_@a

    Seeing that there was no steam age restriction, it should be all ages yeah?

  • Another sakura game *facepalm* I wish these ‘things’ wouldnt be included on vndb or any other site. We shouldnt even acknowledge their existence… these fake eroge made by English companies lack the quality and flair of the real thing and are an insult to the community.

    • I accept that they have a niche as cheap nukige since the newer titles at least have 18+ material. Though the Sakura Maid subseries in particular needs to be burned at the stake for being freenium.

  • Sakura series: officially the Call of Duty of visual novels.

    Ugh… I’m glad that’s not my money, but clearly consumers have poor taste. Yay free market~

  • moenovel is butchering another game? there are enough twelve years old french girls buying that ‘thing’ after all if they menage to license another one lol

  • august title reach 100% translation? it’s the first right? ohhh wait there is the one from published by aria which doesn’t use august name to break the curse

    • No, there is an august title reached both %100 translation and %100 edit and… died. Then 2 years and half later former member from translation team fed up with that situation released an incomplete patch which was even more incomplete because he didn’t have %100 edited scripts. Guess what it is?

      But its really spectacular. I man a project dies after reaching %100 translation and edit. I didn’t saw any other vn in same situation. A project dies from very start feels very luck compared to this one.

      • truly a curse
        wait is it fortune arterial? my first VN that got me attracted to japanese entertainment and literature?

  • E2 update on Taisho x Alice “We are continuing our efforts to bring this completed game out by the end of the year. A lot of time and hard work is being done behind the scenes to make this English & Spanish release up to everyones expectations, and to continue working on additional titles immediately following the release.” ( )
