VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status Updates Series) is published each Saturday and brings the latest updates from VN translation projects — both licensed and by fans — from around the net. If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let us know in the comments.
From The Team: The VNTS crew is legendarily fun. And clever. And good looking. And we love you guys. But my love for VNTS was put on the chopping block last night when my internet went out, and I was forced to consider the question, “Do I really want to finish VNTS over a 2G mobile phone connection?” The answer turned out to be a “no”, and that’s why we’re late this morning. Oh, and much < 3 and kudos to Decay for doing VNTS last week despite everything. Alright, enjoy VNTS. Tay out.
