< report >I can't wait for this one to be translated... Personally I would have preferred Manga Gamer to translate this one first then the first one... but oh well.... any ideas of when they'll start translating this one? (guesses are equally fine) or better question would be when do you think they'll be finished with the first game?

Wait, aren't they done with it already? Almost 2 weeks ago.
But yeah, I'd like this translated as well but I'm not sure they (MG) will do anything about it. They'll have to see the sales of the first game first and see if it's a good investment doing this game as well. So we should expect nothing to happen so that if something does happen it'll just be a nice surprise instead of risk getting disappointed ;D

< report >yeah quite honestly i have little hope for SKM, plus KM was just finished (and sold kinda poorly) so its no guarantee that SKM will even be done at all ever.

< report >two translations excuse me the other one is a fan game which I am taking a brake from Ive decided to jump back to Shuffle! Essence+ as my main project for now (I have to jump around a lot since it's only me doing ALL of the work) but that's not what this is about..... anyway I hope they do it after they finish the first game..

< report >Magna coum late?!... Is that a new brand of coffee?

Even if you screwed up the saying, it doesn't mean you are doing it without pay. It means you are doing it "with greatest honours", which doesn't make sense.Check your friendly online Latin dictionary before engaging in "magnum cum latte"...`_´

< report >If you're able to play the game in Japanese then what does it matter to you whether game is translated or not? I have to agree with Dacasa and ask you not to give people false hopes.

Personally speaking, I seriously doubt MangaGamer will ever translate this since sales of the first Koihime game sucked. I don't think Nexton is impressed either, they took a chance with MangaGamer and they lost (don't get me wrong, its not MangaGamer's fault).Last modified on 2011-03-13 at 00:27

magna coum late

Hum, I'm maybe a stupid man, but there's a rumour that the phrase is "magna cum laude", how can it transform to that state, i wonder?Last modified on 2011-03-13 at 00:44

I blame the torrent friendly western fanbase for that. But yeah, a big game needs big sales and that was one thing this game did not get. I guess the lack of voices was a huge helping hand in that happening though.
Also, Magnum cum latte doesn't sound too promising but what do I know. I leave that to the coffee experts.

i think this played a huge role in why the sales were so bad, i mean i know the sales would have been under the 2k mark even with voices but it would have closed the gap that much farther. not only that the west is WAY to torrent friendly, im sure the torrent was downloaded en mass numbers, much so to make the official sales look pitiful (more so than they already are mind you)Last modified on 2011-03-13 at 05:04

< report >Hasn't it been selling better than Shuffle, their previous best seller? Sales are bad for the same reason all official eroge localizations sell poorly: the market simply isn't there.

< report >Its selling pretty good.

IE more than the usual. Although sells dropped the 2nd day then went back up on the 3rd(Voice patch out).

< report >It would be impressive if they had.... maybe sales would have gone better if they had done this game first since this one is basically just an "Upgrade" from the second one right? (first game = Harukoi Otome ~Otome no Sono de Gokigenyou~)

< report >"bro" you know how I fly with that.... anyway thank you for explaining... now I'm just wondering here but how many people do you think it took to translate the last game? I mean 50+ hours is a long time and A LOT of text and maybe I didn't know about it before it was released but it seems they did it in a short amount of time as well.... it would have taken alot of people right?

Although it could have just been Kouryuu. ;_;
