This week’s header image comes from Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome (MangaGamer), which finished testing this week and now in the sweeping-up-reports stage of production.
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: Important update for all TL-trackers out there: Sekai Project has decided they are no longer going to maintain a progress tracker. They’ve informed us that their progress updates will be moving to a “video format” — presumably semi-regular videos posted to YouTube, but as far as I know they haven’t given specifics — which obviously throws a wrench in our weekly VNTS workflow. For now, we’re held in abeyance.
As soon as we know more, we’ll let you know how we plan on approaching SP updates. – Tay

Zakabox™ 「This is the place where Zaka occasionally shares his wisdom. Will he show up this week? Will he have anything to say? Only time will tell.」
TAYsteful Thoughts™After begging Decay to tell me everything he could about Nier:Automata, I finally managed to get a copy. It’s great. It’s really great. The music is awesome, and the swordplay-action/shooter gameplay dynamic is a lot of fun. I know that I’ll enjoy mixing up POD programs, but I can’t bring myself to moving away from the bullet program. Holding R1 and unleashing an endless bullet hell while flailing about madly with a sword is pretty addictive. It’s also pretty cool that Yoko Taro is apparently a VNTS fan.
Have a good week, everybody!
