< report >So it's been a year. Any updates? I know securing localization deals takes a lot of time due to behind the scenes company negotiations (and the current pandemic probably isn't helping matters) but did anything ever come of this?

Is Nexton still interested in localising more of their titles or has their plans been temporary shelved (or god forbid, dropped entirely)?

Hey guys!
How's everyone doing? =X

We have collected 621 results for the compulsory section of the poll
and I'm here to update everyone about the results =D

Top 5 genre voted:
1) Romance (392/621)
2) Fantasy (376/621)
3) Comedy (330/621)
4) Action/Battle (283/621)
5) School life (271/621)

*Seems like most of us like Rom-Com + a little fantasy =X

Top 3 aspect of a Visual novel voted:
1) Story/Scenario
2) Character setting
3) Artwork

Top 5 Brands of NEXTON voted:
(Total results: 498)

1) Baseson (199/498)
2) Azarashi (196/498)
3) Liquid (149/498)
4) Herencia (108/498)
5) Lusterise (107/498)

% of people practicing or learned Japanese using Visual novel:

50.7%

Top 5 types of Goods you guys would like to see made available for international purchase:

1) Figurines
2) OST & Drama CDs
3) Dakimakura cover
4) T-shirts/hoodies
5) Tapestry / Plushie (tied)

Regarding Titles that everyone would like to see being localized,
seems like Amakano series would take the cake follow by a healthy amount
of Exs-tia request.
Koihime series would be the topping of that cake with DeepOne and Herencia titles
spices sprinkled on top of it =X

In summary: Amakano >= Exs-Tia > Koihime > DeepOne >= Herencia titles

With the results, instead of waiting for localization companies to request us for licenses of our titles,
we can now instead seek out localization companies to localize our more popular titles for you guys =)

Please do give us some time as we are still in the midst of laying our ground works for the above result to come true.

From their Discord. After that, there's not much. Kinda like The Visual Arts one.

Thus, <School life> isn't the least liked.
