Visual Novels

Why do I translate visual novels? Well, put simply, I enjoy them. I try to play VNs already translated, but only a small amount are. So, I, in my unfathomable determination, decide to play an untranslated visual novel anyways, even though I’ve had no formal education in Japanese. In translating the lines for myself, I think “Well, why don’t I just record these and let others read it?” A good story deserves to be enjoyed! And so, a life in VN translation is born.

I have been extensively working on these lines for a lengthy period of time. I am by no means a professional translator, only working on them in my free time. Still, I’d like to think my translations are at least somewhat accurate, and make the events understandable. Really, this is more of a personal project than anything else. My rate of translation is highly sporadic, ranging from a dozen lines a week to over 200 in a single weekend, depending on my whim and situation. I am a single person translating thousands upon thousands of lines, so, of course, don’t expect me to be able to keep up a regular schedule, nor can I guarantee perfect accuracy in my translations. Despite that, I hope those who are interested will be able to enjoy my work.

At the moment, I have lines from “Hatsukoi 1/1”, and “Kono Oozora ni, Tsubasa wo Hirogete FLIGHT DIARY” (the fandisk to KonoSora). There are also a number of other visual novels I have done some translating for.

Just to clarify, just because I am translating something, does not mean I am making a patch for said item. My subtitles are simply my own contribution to the process of translation. The only patch I am making is for Hatsukoi 1/1.

That said, take a look at my Youtube channel!

    Keep up the good work. I’m sincerely looking forward to your work on Flight Diary and Hatsukoi. Hopefully you can get donations up soon so that people like us who want to see their VNs in English can support you. Great Job! Keep it up, I’m rooting for you and your “team” shall I put it?

      Nowhere. If you’re talking about Hatsukoi 1/1, the patch is current in development and not available for download. If you’re talking about Flight Diary, no patch exists, period.

    Will the Flight Diary translation be downloadable here? I am currently playing the main storyline of If My Heart Had Wings and am wondering if Flight Diary will be downloadable. I’m really looking forward to it since I am in love with the main story. Keep up with the good work!

    I really liked Konosora so far, though I don’t have time to finish the VN. I really liked Hotaru and I wanted to see her route translated, I’m really happy to see that you are translating it, keep up the good work!
