Seems pretty likely. I guess I can never expect an uncensored 18+ release huh?

I'm more curious if there will be a KS for that

If this is happening, Ren doesn't seem to know about it. Since it's not exactly his translation, I suppose it's possible that they'd license it behind his back, although that seems like a scummy thing to do. So either this is a false alarm, or they're planning on doing it from scratch.

We'll find out one way or the other in 12 or so hours, since that's when SP's panel is.Last modified on 2016-02-13 at 08:11

Pretty sure now, that it was just to do with their Indiegogo project.

So, update. The TL is coming out in October. link So obviously SP is not involved.

I wouldn't be surprised if he announce SP will finally release his tl during the... 9 months he needs to do... a 2nd pass after having 100% tled and edited the VN.Last modified on 2016-02-13 at 20:52

Sorry, I don't see the relation between "SP working with Kio Nachi" and "Aokana getting an english release".
You do know that Kio Nachi is a freelancer right?

Well, yes, now it's apparent the relation wasn't there. But they did mention Aokana right in the tweet.

@jazz957 Probably because aokana anime is airing and this is the most recent work people can relate to in order to understand who is the guy.Last modified on 2016-02-13 at 21:16

@13 Translators are people too. They also have lives of their own. I know it's hard to believe.

Please dont let it be true....
First Memoria and now maybe this? Is it possible that Sekai hate the vn community?

Seems like he'll post more details about the delay in the week end so just wait for the (maybe) true reason.

He just wants you to tell him urusai! You lack of delicacy, jazz.

@jazz957 I know translation takes high amount of time. But if you look at the the progress he is already fininshed all routes? Just want to clarify that i appreciate the work of every single one the translators. But i don't think that is the reason for thenew announced release date.

I agree with #19. I mean look at the progress, all translated and edited about a month ago. Normally you would think we will see a release about several days, in a few weeks at most, but 9 months? Nobody can become that busy. Also that post came about same time with sp tweet. I can't help but think there is something fishy.Last modified on 2016-02-13 at 23:44

Looks like SP isn't doing anything in regards to this VN. So we're safe with waiting for Ren's team to finish translation.

If the whole "will not be released before October" is correct, there's plenty of time for licensing and an official release. In fact, there's so much time, it'd be almost weird if that wouldn't happen at some point. Almost feels like it's more like a dead-line for western publishers than a release of a patch.

I generally feel it's really to do such a thing. It's a fan-tl, there's no obligation, so why do something like that? Makes all the TL/Editing updates so far really weird as well. Those are done to build hype and awareness as well as "encouragement?" for the project. That all collapses when you finish with a "ok, now you'll all wait for another year, see you then". Sure, wasn't planned or whatever, but still. When I read it the first time, I actually thought it's a joke or has to do with licensing. Well, we'll see.Last modified on 2016-02-14 at 13:12
