Hello, Peter Payne of J-List here. We'd like to get in touch with the group who's done the translation of this game, can anyone help us reach them or have them contact us? (It's not for anything bad.)

Let me guess: You want to release Majikoi officially in 2033, amirite ?

This is really me, not sure what all the hate is for. The times we've taken really long to release games, like Hanachirasu, the cause was usually massive software problems that needed to be reworked. If you're paying attention at all you'll see we don't announce preorders until a game is in late beta stage anymore.

Although I'm skeptical, I'll post assuming this isn't a troll. Two groups have worked on this. Yandere Translations did the common route plus four heroine routes, and some members of Fuwanovel has done the rest of the translation and seem to be releasing the final patch "soon". Yandere is totally dead, the translator TakaJun has been MIA for a very long time and their site is down, I don't know how you'd go about getting in touch with him. For the Fuwanovel guys, you can contact this guy I guess: link

My opinion: Don't bother. The work done by either group is not really fit for commercial release unless you want to do a whole lot of TLC/editing.Last modified on 2015-02-25 at 14:39

Cool, thanks for the advice. It is a shame that many of the fan translations are not as good as they could be.

If you're truly Peter Payne and you want to post as such on VNDB, you probably should offer some form of proof that you are who you say you are. A simple one-time acknowledgment on your Twitter account, quoted here, would suffice.Last modified on 2015-02-25 at 21:36

Why? He asked a question, he got it answered. Insofar as this topic is concerned it doesn't matter whether he's who he says he is. (Though insofar as this topic is concerned there also isn't any point in anyone, including me, posting in it further.)

You're absolutely right, but it has to be said that if Majikoi gets licensed and the Miyako route is delayed another two years... I'm not going to lie, that would be pretty damn hilarious.Last modified on 2015-02-25 at 23:03

This is VNDB. The topics that have no apparent purpose anymore are the ones that usually refuse to die.

This is what I was responding to. Of course people will be skeptical and rude if someone creates a new account and publicly claims to be a notable person in the scene in a suspicious context without proof.

Obviously if he just wanted to ask a question and disappear, it doesn't really matter. Should he want to continue to post and be acknowledged as Peter Payne, then he might want to consider proof of identity.Last modified on 2015-02-26 at 00:14

If it matters ask me to post a certain character and I'll tweet it. I can't tell you what I'd post because it wouldn't be proof.

(By the bye, thanks to everyone on the site for the resource you offer the whole industry. We often raid vndb for information that we don't possess.)

If you're really him then I wish you guys the best of luck. Just please don't take too long to release it if you do get the license. I really would like an officially translated Majikoi along with the (admittedly from current perspective faint) possibility of an official translation of Majikoi S and A and Tsujidou-san no Junai Road and its FD.

I'll take you up on your offer.

Tweet or blog about Keima Katsuragi, the protagonist of The World God Only Knows. I'm sure you could work that into your usual publicity without too much trouble. Follow up with a post here containing a link to your tweet / blog post.

I'm not even sure why it matters at this point. :/

Troll harder. If this guy was legit he wouldn't be here asking for help - he would know how to use the internet and head over to fuwa and get in touch directly with the guy running the show.

Not to mention flaunting business plans before any kind of officiail word? Not likely (unless Jast has gotten really sloppy).

"ppayne" came here to get public attention, and he got it. :P

Sorry for the delay. The tweet about Keima is here: link

I've never been doubted so much in my life ^^

I really love the fact it says he joined the day he posted the topic.

If anything I really don't believe you're the real "Peter", if you are then PM me on twitter @CRY_tl.

Don't take it personal. It's just VNDB's way a greeting newbies on the forum. Maybe that's why we don't have all that many newbies...

it's more of a precaution for me, just to make sure it's the real thing and not some fake...

What's it to you? Do you really think he's going to PM a random nobody? lmao

At this point he even openly tweeted about wanting to license Majikoi, so...

So we'll really get official Majikoi in 2033 ?
Damn, that is like, so cool!

Start saving up on your high-grade bullets now and maybe you can trade them for some eroge when the time comes.

What?
