Visual Novel Translation Status (11/22/20)

Written by Zakamutt

Welcome to the Fuwanovel VNTS, where we shamelessly copy the work of one illustrious 4chan /jp/ member in collating translation progress and add minor dabs of value through corrections and additions. Entries with updates this week in bold.

This week’s image is from This is where I die today (Watashi wa kyou koko de shinimasu), the no-filler nakige I spent my last three years or so working on. Yesterday, I finally completed my second pass on the translation, which is a major milestone for me. Since I am incredibly biased towards this title for obvious reasons, that’s what you’re getting.

The Zakabox

「Hi everyone. The big news this week is, of course, that I finished my second pass translation for This is where I die today (Shinimasu). It took me about four months to go through the script, checking each line, correcting quite a few mistranslations and editing a lot of flows that either didn’t work that well or had to be changed due to earlier mistranslations. Out of an abundance of caution I’m letting some people I know see if they can find any errors for two weeks (though I’m not sure if I’m getting a lot of people to actually do it)… well, that and I need to take a break to wrap up this math assignment and to stop being like six lectures behind by reading the lecture notes. Life is hard, man. Anyway, after that it’s off to editing and then qa and stuff. Shinimasu… 2021? Oh well, at least I finished translation in 2020. Check out the new description I wrote for the vn, and if you’re actually reading these posts, I guess you can join my newly-minted discord for my translation group as well.

I was pretty much considering the oreimo tsuzuku project dropped after they’d done their patch for disc 1 (base game, none of the after stories that the “continued” of tsuzuku implies) and then there wasn’t a release, and few updates, for… (checks vndb) five years? Hoo boy, they’re almost as slow as me. It appears that things are finally happening though, so maybe you’re getting the actual full game sometime in the near-ish future.

The Spice and Wolf game is a surprise to VNTS — but should it have been? The gbatemp forums have given rise to more than one portable platform VN project. With that said, the timeline on this one is somewhat narrow as we basically start in September 2019, get our first number (87%) on 15 September 2020, and hit the 100% on… October 9. The game has trading sim gameplay (sasuga) and doesn’t seem to be horrible based on the… uh, 6 whole EGS votes. Probably you should like Holo if you want to enjoy it though.

Kimihane (Wanting Wings) has been released! [NSFW] …I think I wrote about it already, but the non-extended version was definitely charming and the extended looks better. I’m disappointed in google though.

I Walk Among Zombies vol. 0 (a prequel; not sure what volumes 1-2-3 you should have read before it) and vol.3 are both slated for release in December. I haven’t really kept track of the series, but the first volume seemed to be fairly polarizing? Does kind of seem like my thing though, a sorta-sociopathic protagonist and trapping zombies to use as sex objects (I think???) sounds hot.

The otomege with porn Fxxx Me Royally! is at last slated for release on 17 December. A lighthearted game with a sex-positive female protagonist by the makers of FLML? Sounds pretty good actually. You can preorder it here [NSFW]. This one was translated by my friend VerdelishJP, so I am unable to give an unbiased opinion, except that the translation will probably be pretty good. On a sidenote, do the invoice thing if you haven’t already, dummy.

Musicus, Overdrive’s (Kira Kira, Deardrops) crowdfunded last title featuring a return of Kira Kira’s writer Setoguchi Ren’ya (but hopefully not MG’s translation quality at the time Kira Kira was translated…), made a big splash in the more pretentious JOP circles on release. Presumably it will not live up to the hype, but I’m still interested as Kira Kira was an entertaining and unusual character drama. That said a proud JOP couldn’t possibly read this in English, so on the backlog it goes. “In Beta” will hopefully not last too long; there shouldn’t be anything too complicated going on with the engine at least… hopefully.

Jeanne at the Clock Tower has flown relatively under the radar as a Liar-Soft release. Reading the description, I notice that it is technically Isekai. That’s actually kind of hilarious, you just can’t escape! The original world being WWII-era Europe really is too much tho, this shit hella Narnia. Or am I mixing that up with my childhood favorite A Tale of Time City? Whatever. Leaving the jabs aside, the description sounds pretty cool. Give me a horrible wartorn fantasy world and beautiful women rescuing me from certain death any day. I didn’t read so many fantasy novels as a kid for nothing (looking back though, some of the stuff in like, the Deverry Cycle was pretty explicit, huh. Though I can’t say I’ve taken any noticeable damage. Maybe that’s why I’m skeptical of wanting to #protectthechildren…)

The koikuma fandisc Steam release, also slated for December like so many of the titles so far, is apparently taking a subahibi-esque approach where you can get a shell of the game on Steam and have to patch it offsite (the original seems to have gotten additional all-ages content made? ah well.). I expect there will be a Denpasoft release as well for those with the particular brand of autism that demands one not have to patch one’s game (hi Dergonu). Lots of Sayori-art-adorned porn sounds pretty good, but I haven’t even read the original, so who knows.

Adabana Odd Tales is now available on JAST, and with this finally available for purchase for European users. Japan, for some bizarre reason no one seems to have figured out, specifically made European Steam users unable to buy Adabana’s English localization, despite allowing them to buy their other title Atri. It is a mystery…

In other news, there’s a new version of the Robotics;Notes Elite patch released earlier that fixes some issues.」

    As for the release, I can’t talk more seeing that I didn’t see much review about it although it might be good. I guess it’s too bad if Musicus did need some time for the testing, and other than that I think the only other interesting update is Pure x Connect translation team managed to fully translate one route (Moemi’s route).
