Visual Novel Translation Status (01/31/2020)

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 picture is from Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- The Prophecy of the Throne, because while I would normally prioritize the less normie Slobbish Dragon Princess, the questionable-level-of-effort localized title for that one makes me slightly but unmistakeably ill. It’s like how some people feel about the word moist.

The Zakabox

「Welcome to a new month of VNs, or whatever. It’s a somewhat different month for me, since the extensive reading challenge Tadoku ran a round last month and it’s not doing that this month. 580 four-hundred-char-page-equivalents of Japanese text in a month is okay, I guess. But now I have to refocus on shinimasu… well, that and my university course, I guess. But math is laaaaaame… Expect to see me play random vns instead to procrastinate.

The manakashi project is currently reporting only edited lines as “translated” which I certainly can’t disagree with entirely, but it also doesn’t show that there’s a tl/edit discrepancy currently. If you are interested in helping edit a dark yurige with guro, see this post for details.

One of the reviews Steam presented to me on the re-zero game complained that the gameplay was lame, though it didn’t comprise that much of the experience. Also the story not great. Also mostly act 1 and 2 or whatever should be experienced before playing. And stuff. I cannot speak as to the truth of this, as I stalled reading rezero in Japanese somewhere in the middle of the first LN because stalling things is what I do. I do wonder if there are any anime tie-in games that are actually considered really good, though. Though few make it over, they seem common in Japan — but I’ve never heard of one that wasn’t just seen as okay-tier bonus material for True Fans. I also haven’t listened very hard, though. I wonder if there are structural factors that make it unlikely for them to be good… I could think of a few without much issue.

Slobbish Dragon Princess is some moege with a #anime moege setting. The only thing I feel like remarking on is the localized name being lame. ぐーた is exactly how I feel hearing about it.

Re;lord 2 was fully translated a few million years ago, so it’s, uh, nice to see someone working on it again, I guess. I have seen JOPs speak quite positively about the series as it goes on, but who knows when #3 is coming to our shores? Not I.

I think everyone thought the Gore Screaming Show project was dead. It still seems pretty dead, but in a somewhat alive manner. I don’t remember the samples coming out being anything remotely resembling good, so I’d personally be fine if it never delivered. We shall see.」


Writer of irreverent VNTS commentaries, shadowy Fuwanovel string puller, Swedish, ambivalent toward meatballs. Brave Fuwanovel Skype Group memeber (rip), technically a reviewer, chronic everything staller. I am all these things and more, but mostly I'm really lazy. Loves yuri, reading, chocolate, and quality sugar-free colas. Hates VNs with too many choices and long walks on the beach.

I did make an earlier VNTS Review below, so once again I hope that you’ll enjoy it.

Dragon Princess is indeed not an exciting release, but at least Sekai now has one less backlog to deal with. At this rate I didn’t care for ReLord 2 anymore, although when it come to the middle of trilogy I prefer Sekai working on Daybreak (I know there’s some complication, but still). No comment on ReZero VN other than at least it has original staffs supervising it. In the end, my interest for this week is not the release, but instead it’s Eustia’s significant progress in TLC.
