Visual Novel Translation Status (01/13/2018)

This week’s header image comes from our lone release this week: Sorcery Jokers (MangaGamer). Get the 18+ version on MangaGamer here, and the all-ages version on Steam here.

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:  It’s that time of year, again: the VNTS Spring Purge. We’ve gone through the list and removed ~15 inactive projects. As in previous years: should they pick back up, we’ll be happy to add them once again. As far as releases go: just the one this week. Hope everyone has had a good start to the new year. – Tay

“Spring” Purge came early this year… it’s only January!

I kind of hate to see Angel Beats go, but since all they’ve ever said about it was at a Q&A at Anime Central over 18 months ago (I was there), and there’s never been any official statement or web presence for it in English, it’s fair to drop it from the list.

This week VNTS Review, and guess there’s no much we could do in regard of dropped project. Enjoy.

I really wanted to write a commentary this week, and I told tay I would write one. I even opened the editor. But then I was too tired to continue and went to bed. RIP. Next week I swear I will write one!

In case anyone is wondering why some misc projects are still on the list, we get confidential tips from time to time and can state with reasonable certainty that every questionable misc project not removed is still happening.

Too bad there are projects that die after reach 100% translation and editing, like yoake. Could anything be done about them?

Not much you can do without the translated scripts, is there? And sometimes there are reasons why those projects never release anything, like poor translation quality. I know some translators who have delayed projects to rework translations before (or in some cases, completely can).

Yoake is probably a little different, but I don’t know what exactly the issue is there.
