Either the news of this happening slip my radar or this was just announced because I never heard this was happening.

I wonder if the translation will be any good though.Last modified on 2013-05-14 at 09:49

Downloading... but it could take a while, cause the speed isn't very high.

We'll soon know if it really IS legit... and something about the translation quality as well.Last modified on 2013-05-09 at 14:27

< report >Personally, if I can (money is always a problem), I like to buy and collect them. When is possible, I always purchase VNs from japanese sites.

< report >First:

It IS legit. (playing right now)

Second:

Translation quality seems okay. I think I found a few errors, but then again, english isn't my mother language, so maybe I'm the one at fault.

I don't know. Never heard of them until today. But I, too, want to know who is behind this.

< report >@Encrypted12345: Yeah, Izmosmolnar linked it already.

I've made a few screenshots of the backlog as I was playing through the trial. So if anyone is worried about the quality of English, check these out. I, for one, am convinced. And the VN itself is really a pleasant experience. I don't know about the story, characters and stuff like that (although I've only heard good things), but the voice acting is lovely, the background music is very calm and soothing, the animated scenes flow perfectly with the still images and art is nothing short of beautiful. I have to say, I'm really looking forward to this.

< report >Not that I mind, but is the version that they're releasing all ages? link It doesn't have an adult warning like some of the other games do.. wonder if they cut out the h-scenes or if they just haven't added the adult warning yet.

< report >I had just downloaded this to play over the weekend in japanese, but i'll certainly hold off to buy an official english release if the quality seems decent. Downloading the demo now, but damn its moving slowly.

So the release date is this month? Where the hell did that come from, they certainly managed to slip this one under the radar.Last modified on 2013-05-09 at 18:00
