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.
Hi, Hata here! Time for another VNTS at the end of this month!
This week we totally don’t feel like rambling about anything but VNTS today, so let’s get straight into the projects. Does everything go well right now? Yeah, it actually does! We might even close applications soon because the team is big enough. An overview of the thread suggests a lot of nukige this time. Zaka will surely ignore those, let’s see if I’m right…

「Hello and welcome to another installment of I swear too god why does every muscle in my body always act like I personally insulted its mother after suboptimally positioning it for more than 0.3 seconds. Wait, I mean VNTS. Right. Never get old people.
First of all, I will look up what the heck Fate/Extra CCC is on account of editing looking like it might be done soon. Right, it’s a different version of Fate/Extra, some JRPG-hybrid-maybe-only-on-vndb-for-the-cope fate/spinoff. The sequel Extella is already localized by Aksys, which I find amusing on some cosmic level. Phew, maybe I’ll remember some of this later. Probably not. Jesus the PSP sure had some crusty graphics. I wonder if the PSV rerelease had better ones. Not that the patch targets the PSV. Ah well.
I see several NTR and nukige releases this week. I sleep.
Only You -Re Cross- is an old alicesoft ge. It offers “simulation game” gameplay, whatever that means. Patching the .exe to make the music work is a bit tricky: you can’t just run the _inmm installer, you actually have to patch the exe using the _inmm thing that you installed. The readme you got in the patch has a link to the instructions. Godspeed.
Gears of Dragoon (wait, it’s Gears of Dragoon 2 in Japan? This is like Final Fantasy all over again…) has suffered an unforeseen delay. Is this the return of JAST time, folks? Actually come to think of it, where the fuck is Sumaga? I guess they got Muramasa out though, so we can’t actually meme them for that anymore…
(Zaka forgot Django -Hata)
Usonatsu‘s new demo was enjoyed by our resident yurichad. I didn’t read it because I’m the resident meme and reading is hard. Ask me about the LNs I have read like 5% of vol 1 of tho, it’s a very impressive list.
Official Tsui no Stella loc is out 26 sep… oh that’s today. Right. Wonder which of the tls will be best.
I recommend not looking up Shiravune’s PR tweets about Amazing Grace. I’ve heard complaints they may reveal too much, and not the skin kind of revealing. One *channer describe the writer’s ge as something like “boring af SoL and then there’s a twist that makes you shit bricks in the end” so maybe it’s like that. Maybe you will find it less boring if you like good old moege. Anyway, they seem to not be full moege which might interest some people. And turn some away that have an allergic reaction to any plot content, I guess.
Livestream 2 is out. It’s a horror ge, and the first had a mixed reception though one guy on staff liked it. I wonder if the translation will be jank like the one for the first was. The first one had point and click elements, so I guess those will probably return here? Sorry, my eye is going dry on me and I literally cannot make myself do more than the needfulest needful.
Finally, there’s a retranslation/edit/oops we got a shitty tl since we got near-scammed by an agency so now we will try to outsource unfucking the mess to the fans of Libra coming out soon. I’m sure the peeing vampire liker constituency is thrilled. God the translation they got was hilarious though. The sun already exploded, stomach bam… real meme bangers that shit.
Aight, see you next week. Maybe Hata can cover all the coomerge I ignored.」
「Hmm, not much extraneous to talk about except… Ah, Fujoneko had been away for three days, so I had to keep everything afloat myself. It worked out, no biggie!
Oh, we have Coomerge today? Yaaaaay~
Fate/Extra CCC lately has been making big jumps. It has 2340 out of 2499 main scripts edited. I never looked into this game, but this is definitely huge. We added two people to the Fuwa Team who are into TYPE-MOON big time, so they will probably review those in the distant future. Look forward to those.
Tamagolemon from Oppai no Ouja 48 and picked up another big boobie game with The Flames of Impregnation,Big Boobied Classmates a few months after he finished Shabura Rental. It’s a game by SQUEEZ which you may know from the Haramase Oppai franchise that Milk Factory and Frontwing are dishing out on occasion. The stories in these games are an afterthought, but there’s huge amounts of erotic material.
Boyfriend-Approved Sex Friend is another Atelier Sakura NTR game by SaikeyStudios which they put behind their Patreon. Since we’re not backing their Patreon to investigate the validity and quality of the patch except in case we’re reviewing it, you will need to buy the cat in the bag. Since when was it okay to put translation patches behind Patreon, actually? The market changed quite a bit, huh.
There’s ANOTHER Nukige out. It’s Ochiru Part Tsuma – Toshishita Otoko to no Jouji ni Oboreta Hate ni…, a nukige by Studio Pork! It’s actually the first localized eroge by Studio Pork, so that’s quite nice. More adult women are always nice, especially since you don’t have to justify it to anybody and also you can post it in every NSFW discord chat in the world without having a mod yell at you for trying to burn down the place. More Houshou Mari… Jukujo plz!
JAST USA delayed Gears of Dragoon for quite a while. It’s going to release on the 20th of October now because it needs more polish. This is great, we love it when publishers don’t just half-ass release a product. On JAST’s and ninetail’s side there also released an All-Ages version of Venus Blood GAIA which you can play now. The gameplay in the Venus Bloods never sat well with me because they’re too complex for their own good, but people tend to like them a lot. The characters are quite cool, too!
Sekai Project actually has a strong lineup this year. We will get UsoNatsu ~The Summer Romance Bloomed From A Lie~ not far from now. A demo is already available to play and our Yuzurity jumped on that one immediately. Extremely pretty game and I look forward to try it myself in English.
Nie no Hakoniwa looks absolutely gorgeous, but I keep my eyes open more. It is at 100% translation, 50% editing and 70% engine work. Man, I’m getting lost looking at this gorgeous film poster cover…
After a long silence, VisualArts came out of the woodworks again with the Stella of the End PC Steam version that was announced a while ago. The inofficial fan translation by SnowyRyujinTL has been “taken down” but someone still uploaded it to Mediafire, so it’s not gone. Anyways, applauding to SnowyRyujinTL (Rinny & Friends) for adhering to the fan translation codex that I just made up, but that apparently exists.
Frontwing actually delays Shiravune no Kuni again… how surprising. At least they announced in a Kickstarter update that they will deliver the Kickstarter physical goods that haven’t been sent out in the last 5 years around the end of October. Will it finally happen? Will I get my Island Physicals??????????????
Shiravune teased another game and it turned out to be Amazing Grace -What color is your attribute-, a game by a very interesting writer: Fuyuakane Tom. This guy, associated with Cabbage Soft, has already written the game that surely doesn’t star Vtuber Amelia Watson, – Sakura no Kumo * Scarlet no Koi. I did hear that Shiravune was struggling a bit lately, I don’t see telltale signs yet, but more and more titles seem to leave Johren Store exclusivity in favor of other stores. Langsam zeichnet es sich ab wie ein Selbstporträtist.
The last game I need to point out needs some preliminary explanation. 5 or 6 years ago there was a Kickstarter by a company called Mikandi for a visual novel called Libra of the Vampire Princess. Apparently, there’s a long story surrounding this including an anecdote where people from that company posted on Fuwanovel and threatened legal repercussions for what other forum users said.
We cannot verify the veracity of these old posts, but it’s funny to think about. Anyways, MiKandi returned now after 5 years of absence with a finished translation of this game, but they’re now looking for testers for this game. The knee-jerk reaction to this was “Oh god, they’re outsourcing QC for free again :rolling_eyes:” and this is indeed the case. I wonder who will volunteer for that, it wouldn’t be me, would it?
Well, enough talk. Have at you, Fuwanovellers!
