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.
Good day, guys! Today we’re looking at another VNTS and possibly the last one on our old website. Everything that needs to happen now is for the stars to align and that the website doesn’t perform awfully. But this now requires us to actually make some important checks before we can roll out. This includes:
- Style Guide
- Tag List Re-Creation
- Static Content being produced
- Team Page
- New rehauled Advertisement page
- much more.
So as you will see, there will be a lot of developments across the new weeks, but given Fuwanovel’s track record since June, we will overcome any challenges thrown our way. Let’s get into the games for this week, friends.

「Hey boys and other toys, I have an unholy vaguely thai red curry/stew combo on the stove and I’d like to get as much as this done before I need to tend to it again. No it’s not chicken it’s pork so it can take the extra time. Yes I will violate your culinary tradition for fun and profit, what did you think I was? Not white?
Anyway, let’s get on with it. Anata Gomennasai, Watashi Mou… fascinates me. How is this shota (he’s literally named Shouta too) NTRing anything? I mean it’s just NTR nukige but I am still fascinated. Probably it’s worse than anything I could dream up myself though.
Dare mo ga Kanojo o Neratteru is released. I think someone said this was one of the good orcsoft titles but they still haven’t fixed their fundamental problem of only catering to zoomer eyes with their miniscule font size.
There’s some other NTR-ge too, and a retranslation of I think jp-inhouse “Ona-Ken” which is also nukige, man why does VNTS even list all these Saikey titles under fan tl when he’s gotten legal permission and is running a business translating them, if a weird one? Oh yeah Kud Wafter got an update I guess. I must say, I have heard concerning things about the Japanese skills of the whoever is on it. I hope they’re wrong but suspect they’re right. Betting on bad tl is always a good bet. Yes, all my translation pills are black, how could you tell?
The stewtrocity is tasting quite nice so far, though it’s missing a bit of complexity just tasting the broth. Maybe if I reduce it down it’ll be better. I’ll enjoy it even if it isn’t very complex though, so it’s whatever I guess.
The Venus Blood Hollow (Hypno in Japan, but can’t have that in your name with Christian payment processors!) fandiscs, eh. It looks like there are quite a few. Reminds me of Majikoi. Well, anyone milking a franchise reminds me of Majikoi. Maybe I should get other examples, but I think Hata likes Majikoi and anything that bullies Hata is automatically good. Wonder if the Kickstarter on the 19th will be affected by Chinese fans’ negative response to a recent JAST loc. Though I see Kagura listed as a publisher too, so who knows.
The Kiminozo kickstarter is for an all-ages version of the game, though people tell me there are whispers of there being a totally not official patch for that planned. Who knows, maybe they’ll even do it. Some rather caustic âge work fans consider the company essentially dead and unable to do anything but milk their past glories, and them actually Kickstarting this one as yet another example of their failure. I have no opinion other than enjoying the Kiminozo anime back in the day. But it was the first anime I ever deliberately watched all of, so that’s something. My view of how they have treated localization workers, or at least how the people they have hired have treated them, is rather dim, so I can’t say I have a positive view in that area. Ah well.
Fakku has the nopiest nurses yet out. Kuroinu 2 redux, whatever that redux means, on nov 7th. Some “slow life” title that sounds like moenukige. Maybe it’s moege more than nukige. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised literally Fakku is doing a lot of porn.
Dungeon’s Legion is another Kagura gameplay title that may or may not actually belong on vndb but nobody’s checked it so it stays on. Who knows?
Okay I gotta check on my rice, be a bit… Wow, it’s actually not done yet. Guess I’ll boost the heat. The curry meme is doing a bit better, the taste is developing nicely. It does look kind of watery, but hey that’s why we do reductions. Actually, fuck you, have a picture:
Alright, what else have we got? Right, Tensei Games has another nukige title. And… wait, the last title isn’t a nukige? Am I finally free from coomer hell? Will we at last have reasonable H-scene density?
Sekai no Subete is a remake of an old eroge about… uhh it looks a lot like any light1 music club. The remake’s title styling SEKAI/SUBETE uses the haha funni thing where ノ (katakana no) looks a lot like a forward slash when written sloppily. Honestly the old cover has a sick ass aesthetic and my diseased doujin seeker brain is immediately salivating (wait, would that be crying since the eyeballs are closer to the brain? fuck). Unfortunately, they’ve been rejected by steam. Though I gotta be honest this one is very much a school setting, so it’s not unexpected. Ah well.
Anyway, I gotta look at the rice again. See you all. Also Hata, I’m sorry but please do add the links I failed to add. It’s not my fault I have to make dinner okay. 」
1. As far as I can tell, being too lazy to research it, this is more related to it using newfangled Youthful instruments and styles like pop and rock than it being “light” in some Fluff To Metal Heaviness Scale. Rock would probably fit. I would actually look it up, but then I’d actually learn something about Kei-on, and we can’t have that happen to us.
「Goodest of evenings, friends of VNTS goodness. Time for another weekly recurring performance by yours truly and zaka’s truly. Let’s see what’s here this week!
Alright, first I might need to disclose that the reason why SaikeyStudios seems to be so prominently featured these days is that he turned up the gears on his production process and started dishing out games all the time. Barely able to keep up with the weekly releases of this site.
Let’s continue with Kud Wafter. Another interesting case, because I did reach out to the supposedly Japanese-incapable translator “Kitaro”. Kitaro told me that the project wasn’t dead and it’s just being worked on quite slowly. The translator of the game is another person, they’re called Saito. Kitaro/Uttori’s just doing the editing. Given that someone had said that Kitaro wasn’t capable enough at Japanese – should this truly be the case – Kud Wafter‘s in good hands. Other than that, the Alka members are pretty much tied up in industry projects. You can maybe check out Gears of Dragoon 2 soon, which was translated by Ojive from Alka fame.
Ona Ken’s getting a retranslation. This now adds to the pool of ongoing re-translations I learned about this year: Libra of the Vampire Princess, Chusin-Gura 46+1 and now this. Now when’s Cross+Channel???
Venus Blood Gaia will get some fandiscs. The whole Kagura/JAST/China review bombing situation is very opaque, but it got me some valuable information about the current state of KaguraGames as a company. Did you notice that there are no KaguraGames in the JAST store anymore? At all? This is a major annoyance imo, I liked having them in my library.
Sekai Project will release UsoNatsu on the 24th of October. Our reviewer Yuzurity who covered the demo already can’t wait for it to release. Given my personal transgressions with Sekai Project we won’t be getting a review code for it so even those who think that RC’s are making a review biased can be relieved. This game’s gonna get a fair assessment and the way it looks, it shapes up to be one of the most amazing yuri game experiences since Curse of Kudan or Flowers. Speaking of Kubel, SukeraSparo also announced a new yurige – pretty cool!
Well, other than that there’s the whole KimiBOZO situation which our reviewer Bassman had eloquently summarized in our article for it (linked above). I personally dislike they moved to Campfire since this means international fans cannot support it except through PayPal (which is good) or having Japanese credit cards. It’ll get funded nonetheless, I’m quite sure of it. The whole debacle with Anchor and ACID about the 18+ patch is another annoyance about the way these licenses are handled though. Shame, because the Muvluv official localization is pretty much a legendary piece of peak fiction translated as if it was peak fiction. Will I play it? Eventually. Maybe I might play KimiNozo first since the Latest Edition is actually a playable one unlike the Ages MK II Engine version from back in the day. I will also watch the anime since Zaka said it was good-ish. I still hate the English name “Rumbling Hearts” though.
Shiravune is preparing their storm of releases now. I will probably use one of my absolute days where I feel like gooning the fuck out of myself and play all the three Nope Nope Nurses games from start to finish in one weekend. Yes, I will do this and it will be great!
SEKAI/SUBETE I know literally nothing about, so I won’t talk much about it. Looks cool though.
That’s it for this week. Excuse me now while I will indulge in another Döner Kebap. This has been become my favourite food since I literally live in earshot of a Döner store and the more often I go, the bigger the fucking bread gets. This must be some kind of Ponzi Scheme I’m dragged into, but I won’t complain. They must love me keeping their store afloat and the Döner economy with it.
However, they cost like 9 bucks now. Dönerpreisbremse when????」
