Welcome to the second iteration of the Untranslated Releases List. This time, we cover the August 2023 releases. The first article was met with a lot of laudation, that we finally brought back the format, and we also gave access to the program that Sirus had created to the folks over at r/vns, so they could create their own lists as well. Whether they will do that or not is entirely up to their discretion, but we would appreciate it – given that the big r/visualnovels subreddit is not planning to do it at all and the average Japanese game enthusiast might not know about Panapanapana.com.
Our tool now has new features after we told Sirus to implement them. Among those features, there’s now the possibility to switch between English and Non-English releases as well as filtering Game Dev Jam titles, due to them flooding the releases table every time they happen. For our purposes this is not really useful, but the guy over at r/vns, funwithgravity, has already voiced interest in this feature, so they could be quickly covered without much effort. Additionally, there is now a removal button to get rid of unwanted fetchings.
Do you remember Omochikaeri? If you don’t, then let us refresh your memory. Omochikaeri.wordpress is a blog that had been run by Micchi and Zen. While this blog had been a staple of the Japanese reader community for many years, there hasn’t been an update since March 2020. The blog is completely abandoned and only stands as a piece of History of Eroge coverage in English.
Their concept was that they – supposedly – read a handful of trials which became available every month and then published their thoughts on them – marked in different colors for different writers. Since they don’t want to do it anymore, then Fuwanovel shall continue their legacy.
There might be a chance, that we’re going to cover everything major the month has to offer and add short impressions or – if applicable entire demo reviews as embeds into this post. Whether we can already realise this ambition this month or by the next has yet to be seen.
Look forward to our coverages! Without further ado, here’s this month’s list!
