I mean I can't guarantee the Steam version won't also be shit but it'll probably be better at least

< report >^ Yeah, because we all know that official localizations made by professional translators are always better...

Bitch, please.

It's the light at the end of the tunnel ...Last modified on 2020-11-25 at 19:40

< report >Many people use text hookers which are mostly not as good as official or even fanmade releases. As long you can understand what somebody is saying it's enough imo. But probably it's just me xD

< report >#4 It's usually better. Not everytime of course but it is reasonable to believe that the new TL will be an improvement over the previous one.

< report >Blick and Cafe were working on it and their editor seems to be quite cool too. I don't think there is even a 1% chance that the new TL will end up worse. Not even the authors of the fantl think it's good.

< report >At this point it might be released in April, you might also be hit by a meteorite this month.
My point is, there are very few companies that actually deliver the VN in time and the one in charge of this seems like is not one of them. If you haven't played yet just go for it.Last modified on 2021-04-10 at 17:12

< report >There was an update today, for backers' eyes only. I'm not a backer, so I can't tell you what the news is, simply that the project hasn't died.

But in answer to the OP or anyone curious, go ahead and play it. The fan translation is quite good.Last modified on 2021-06-02 at 22:35

< report >@12 Ah, I happen to be a backer, so I can mention what it says. Basically, the digital version and the 18+ patch are set for latter half of June. They blamed COVID, though I'm not exactly sure if that's a convincing excuse.

< report >The new translation seems to be great, for example Oone Touka as Ohne Toka, lol
It also seems to be translated in a very veeery liberal way.
Never read the english fan translation only the spanish one which was great.

Is this really so bad though? I remember in my first year of consuming Japanese media I always read "ou" as "oo" (like too). You can't please everyone and both options definitely have their merits.

Basically what you are saying is that you didn't know how to properly read the language and that you were wrong because you lacked understanding/study but it is still ok for the translator to modify the text just to fit with your incorrect use of it.
I see, that's a strong argument.Last modified on 2021-07-14 at 23:13

< report >I believe the translator isn't stupid and has their own reason to go with that name. Or they simply had to because the developer said so (like it was with Rewrite for example).

Translation is far from the only thing that you need to do, you know.

< report >Different romanization of a name doesn't really qualify as "bad translation". And romanizing おお as "oh" isn't really that uncommon, even if it may look weird. Transcribing おう as short "o" also happens in names - it isn't "proper" romanization, but even Japanese people do it sometimes with their own names. I happen to know one 陽子 (ようこ) who romanizes her name as Yoko.
And on English version of NHK news you will often find mentions of a certain baseball star named Ohtani ;) (大谷)

As for the game in question, I'm still unsure if I will get in on Steam, or look for used PS3 version, and read it in Japanese.Last modified on 2021-07-15 at 06:51

About the Digital Standalone Version

Greetings everyone,

We would like to share a follow-up of the announcement made in our latest update made on July 15th around 9:00 (PDT) about the distribution schedule of the digital standalone version of the game.

As announced in this update, problems with the server and distribution files pushed us to delay the distribution of the game, for which we deeply apologize.

We have identified the problem and are currently working to resolve it, with the goal of releasing the digital standalone version of the game around the middle of next week.

We will announce the exact date of distribution as soon as it is determined.
