< report >based on t14097, we probably should put Hatsuki as the the main name and Hazuki in the alias, unless some other characters in the game confirmed her real name is Hazuki, and she herself only mispronoun her own name because... it's moe, I guess?

< report >That's the only time her name is mentioned anywhere (the game is like 20 minutes long). Seems the circle doesn't have a proper site, but they keep repeating the romanized title "Side Mia Hazuki" link.
I decided against it when creating it because it would stick out like a sore thumb. Official title says Hazuki, title screen says Hazuki, and then bam heroine named Hatsuki.

< report >the game is voiced, right? what did she say in her voice? it's very possible that the dev forgot to put dakuten hence the "はつき", but if the text matched with the voice, then it's pretty much decided. applause for the dev for trolling if that's true lol

< report >She did say Hatsuki. I created her char after reading the trial. After you posted, I checked out the full version if it's any different there, and it isn't. Fine, I'll change it.

< report >Incidentally I saw that Kiritani Hana is your favorite seiyuu. How do you deal with the fact that she retired from voicing eroge? It was a real blow to me.

Incidentally I saw that Kiritani Hana is your favorite seiyuu.
weird, I don't remember putting that anywhere. are you perhaps a wizard? :o

How do you deal with the fact that she retired from voicing eroge?
wait, she did? when exactly? haven't catching up with seiyuu (or otaku world in general) for a long time so that's news to me.
that's a shame really, she's actually one of the few reasons why I choose to play a VN outside of imouto.

< report >Saw you on AS when I was looking for something. She retired Dec 2019 IIRC. The only heroine with H-scenes she's voiced since then was Hachiroku in the bonus H of Maitetsu Last Run, which I assume was because of her contractual obligations from before. I love her voice too. Unfortunately it only truly shines in some VNs because I feel like a lot of directors didn't know how to fully use her potential.

< report >#7 Sorry for the intrusion, but can I have an official statement? I stumbled upon this thread due to boredom and now left with shock and disappointment. The only stuff I found on the internet are people mourning for her H-acting retirement (link) and other irrelevant posts.Last modified on 2021-05-09 at 08:16

< report >There's no such thing as official statement. No need to burn bridges when you never know when you crash and burn in 表 and she still uses her aliases when she appears as no-H side characters (she might also return as a heroine for noratoto3), but all her fans on 5ch (she has a perma thread up there as you've probably noticed) and various blogs are convinced she went full 表 based on previous experiences.Last modified on 2021-05-09 at 08:05

< report >Thanks for the info and sorry for badging in asking dump questions. Today is a sad day indeed and I'm in a loss of words, but nonetheless, I appreciate your input.

< report >well let's just hope we are wrong about that and she comes back with another hit in the future.

unlike other seiyuus, her talent doesn't lie in how wide her voice range is, but rather in her irregular pitch accent and stress point (which usually appear in comical situation/characters). and if the two is followed by a high pitched character, then BAM you got Niimi Sora which is her best performance yet in imo. her acting in Noratoto and Harumina somewhat successful to achieve that. everyone seems to like her performance in Yuzusoft's works, but they don't feel quite... fitting, for most of the time, hence why I stalled the games.

that said, is there any good VN of her that I haven't tried yet? I plan to continue Harumina after this since I only finished the trial.

< report >Himeuni and usomeru should be good stuff based on the trials (at least in regards to her chars).
You said you tried yuzusoft. Let's put aside the fact that her performance as the spaghetti lord Nene in SW is amazing, but did you try amairo islenauts? You might like her more there.

< report >Usomeru's been in my wishlist for a while so I might tried later.
I remember that I watched a few clips of Amairo in yt and while I do think it's probably better there, seems like I won't like that the VN setting itself.

actually, I plan to continue Sanoba one day 'cause I don't actually have a problem with Kiritani Hana's acting (beside not quite fitting my expectation) and Meguru seems like a interesting heroine. plus she voiced by Sendai Eri my favorite second to Kiritani Hana. although, I do have problem with a VN where sexual act become important aspect of the story, more when there's a Sex Under the Necessity tag applied.
I stalled it in the middle of the second chapter, so I want to know if that aspect of the story get better before jumping into it again.

< report >Amairo seems at first glance that it will be about the fantasy island things, but not really. Aside from the side routes, it's mostly about teacher-student relationships, both normal and romantic.
Also Sanoba seems like sexual acts are a plot point, but they really are not. It's just used as the initial plot device to get MC to get in the club, and then the H-scenes are just standard moege romance stuff, nothing crazy like H in common route or in the route before proper confession. As for Meguru, now that's the best moege route I've read in my life.

< report >can you tell me a little spoiler for both games? I saw unreqruited love as a tag in Sanoba, in which route it happens? I relatively love the tag, so it might be a plus point for me if I know exactly what will happen.

< report >In common between side chars, that's why it's low power. But coincidentally it's somewhat present in amairo, because MC and Masaki desire different kinds of relationship so she turns him down repeatedly in her route.

< report >that's more reason to play Amairo then, thanks! and I think will play Sanoba for Meguru then since you and the community praise it that much.

< report >You said you love unrequited love, so you should definitely read Sekaiichi, Uketai Uso o. -Really, Another Imaginary.-. Gotta mention it as soon as I finished, because man, it controls the whole story.
Also c80513.4 the ironic part is that she does have a name and it's visible at one point, but you can only see the last name and the first kanji of her first name, so I couldn't put it in.

< report >I've been quite interested on reading some 3 on 10 titles for a while, so I might pick that one up as well. although, I really need to finish other VNs I've started first... (34 vn on playing? holy shit)

Also c80513.4 the ironic part is that she does have a name and it's visible at one point, but you can only see the last name and the first kanji of her first name, so I couldn't put it in.
since her last name is at least visible, I believe it's alright to input it if you believe it is her actual name, probaly as an alias or spoilerous desc. it doesn't matter whether it a last name or first name.
and you said that you can see the first kanji of her first name, right? in other word, you certain that there is another kanji beside that one, but you cannot quite grasp what it is? I don't know what's the db actual approach for this, but if we follow scientific paper (or at least, in history papers) approach of incomplete name / quote, then using maru or some kind as replacement is okay (like, 福山 仙○).

< report >this one v31272.8 is rather an interesting case. its furigana is ネーネーシスター according to EGS link and I also believe that we should treat the one in the logo as a furigana as well. although the official website writes it as "nenene" on its url, I think it's just an abbreviation like WagaHai.
if we do the usual vndb way, we follow the one in the logo plus EGS furigana, until a more reliable source appears.

< report >I'm all for using EGS furigana for unclear readings, but シスター for 姉 is a bit too special. EGS is a human-made database as well, and it's entirely possible that they went by the romaji (subtitle?) on the cover. I've got this link right here.

< report >hey, that's what I meant by "more reliable source", thanks!
I'm gonna add some aliases though and put that link while I'm at it.

< report >r416.8 I thought the agreement was to not use full-width chars in romanized titles.

2021-07-02 at 00:52
< report >the subtitle is already in romaji, I'm more lenient when that the case, just like using maru in romaji field.Last modified on 2021-07-02 at 00:59

< report >Hi again. r81532.3 - that's the same logic as writing the particles はへを as ha he wo. It was always pronounced as Nioi and all the games in the DB have their romaji based on their title's pronunciation, be it old jp or chuuni furigana.
