Change of Pace

I think I’ll change my regular posting day from Monday to Friday. Friday feels like a better day to post, doesn’t it?

In any case, it’s time for an update! First of all, I’d like to announce the results of the poll! Now, I let it run for 2 weeks, but the winner became obvious within the first couple days. You people really want your Miu, huh? Very well then, I’ll be making a special Miu route video soon!

I offer swift delivery in this case, so I will upload it after I finish Hatsukoi 1/1 Part 7! Both videos are currently in production. I estimate another 3-7 days of work til the completion of both. My classes have been hindering my ability to translate, so please bear with me here. I’ve only been getting about 5 hours of sleep a night, which is sometimes (not always) due to VN translating.

Many of you are very supportive of my translations, and so I thank you all for that!  I’ll continue to do my best~

(Without overworking myself, of course. Don’t worry!)


As a side note, I’ve been working a bit on Amairo Islenauts and Cocoro@Function!. I’m not affiliated with either group translating those VNs. I’m just using them as practice (and because they look so good~).

Now, one of the things I love doing is finding connections between VNs. Namely, I keep track of the voice actors for my favorite characters. For example…

Uh oh, Bell crashed!

This cute loli AI, Bell, is voiced by Sora Hatori, who also voiced…Hotaru Himegi! That’s right, she’s Hotaru! BUT ON YOUR PHONE. And she’s every bit as adorable!

Cocoro@Function is one of Pulltop’s games, so many voice actors are shared! Kotori also shows up as Chie Endou, the dedicated and beleaguered Vice Chairman of the Student Council, with the same cool ‘allule’ she always has. (Unfortunately, neither Bell nor Chie are main heroines so they don’t have routes, but an upcoming C@F fandisk is about to fix that!)

On the Yuzusoft side, Amairo Islenauts is the VN they made after Dracu-Riot!, but they don’t seems to share any voice actors. However, Yuzusoft is much more fond of using visual references. Just look at this…

Uh, I think you're lost...

Look at all that wonderful detail! The building architecture is great! The flowers, the road pavement! And I love how every background character is fully drawn in their VNs, it gives the scene so much more depth!

Wait…is that…?

We lost her, try again!

Elina!?! I had a spittake when I first noticed this. That’s definitely Elina from Dracu-Riot in the background! It’s the exact same hair and clothes. Yuzusoft just *had* to insert a reference to their own game. Touche, Yuzusoft, touche…

These are the kinds of things that amuse me. It’s just great to be able to notice these little connections while playing a VN. It was more or less expected between VNs made by the same people, but they’re always interesting to find.

VNs are so fun~

    I’ve just stumbled across your website here. It looks like you genuinely care about and enjoy visual novels, so I’m really glad to see you picking up projects and doing bits and pieces, it’s very refreshing. One thing, I notice you upload videos to youtube, is that all you’ll be doing or do you plan to release patches in the future? Keep on keepin’ on you beautiful thing, you.
