Yup, that's looking pretty good. Now doing date + title prefix match and getting 10283 links, didn't find any bad matches in there on a quick scan.
(sorry for the ghetto HTML, my pastebin can't handle that many URLs... Also it links to the proxy for the poor souls who are blocked like me)

Looks good to me, everything I checked seems to be matched correctly.

Only stuff it's missing now is games where the original title is different, usually due to a formatting difference, but I guess we just have to do those manually, shouldn't be a problem.

Those EGS links have been imported now.

vndb=> select count(distinct l_egs) from releases where not hidden and l_egs <> 0;
(1 row)
That's about 35% of EGS, not bad at all.Last modified on 2019-09-13 at 10:28

Looking through a bunch of the VNs still missing, you could probably get a lot of them by making the matching a little more fuzzy. Things like ignoring whitespace, English capitalization, and differences between Japanese and English ! and ~ would go a long way, and with release date its unlikely you'd pick up false matches.
