Cookie, enjoy with popcorn reading VN, not bullying and teasing others without any reasons. It is a big difference.

Good luck to you anyway!!Last modified on 2020-03-22 at 17:23

#24, i don't know what beef you have with me i just said that too many cooks spoil the broth

which is a completely justified opinion

which you'd be able to tell if you actually had read the post- i hadn't insulted you or your english ability at all

#27, yes, I read it, sorry. beliar did insult me of my knowledge of English language. Also shining17 ironized again. I know that a person can't speak fluently any language if he or she doesn't live in the country of destination for a long time, it's obvious. I said I know English very good, that's all.Last modified on 2020-03-22 at 17:24

>inb4 MangaGamer shuts down this project by officially licensing the title.

Though granted their recent Discord debacle maybe some would actually prefer if this got a fan tl.

@32 Sorry to disappoint, I was just making a joke. However there is a possibility of it happening since MangaGamer is partnered with Alicesoft and localisation companies are jealously protective of their localisation rights to the point of sending Cease and Desist letters to fan translators. So if this project receives a C&D, we'll know that MangaGamer has some interest in translating this title.

I think that's what happened with Baldr Sky. A fan translator was working on it and was almost finished but then Sekai Project acquired the localisation rights. Sekai then offered to buy the fan translators work for them to use as the official translation for an unreasonably low price thinking that they would be making an easy buck. Essentially this screwed the fan translator over since he couldn't release the translation without running into legal issues. That said Sekai kinda screwed themselves over since the fan translator refused to sell them his translation and they didn't really have any sort of backup plan so the official translation had to be started from square one. Apparently the guy was so upset by the experience he vowed to never work in the translating business ever again. Or so I've heard.

I think as long your not paying for it. The translation doesn't have to be perfect. Good luck i hope this is only one of your many projects in the future.
