Quartett's English translation patch is out. I honestly have no idea what this VN's like, other than having a unique presentation and cute art, but here's a description from VNdb:

>On the 17th of March, there is a classical strings concert unlike any other in the world. Ninety-six young musicians, divided into twenty-four quartets perform before an audience of the world’s greatest conductors and instrumentalists. Only one group - a single quartet - is chosen form these performers. Success brings prestige beyond imagination and guaranteed entry into any orchestra on the planet. It is a once in a lifetime chance for those striving to perfect the art of music. The ultimate dream… and possibly the ultimate nightmare.

Played this awhile ago. The art, music, and presentation are all excellent. It's short so the story is on the shallow side, but the characters are instantly likable and make it really enjoyable to read.
>> No. 940 [Edit]
I just finished this tonight, and I agree. The presentation outshines the majority of VNs I've read. It's enjoyable enough for its short length, and the amount of music/CG in it is insane. There's really no reason not to read it, as you can blow through all the routes within 5 hours. It turned out to be unexpectedly a little dark for what seemed like a simple slice of life at first.

I'm curious about other Littlewitch titles now. I know they were a highly regarded dev while they were still around.

Oh, and someone made a voice patch, apparently, if anyone is interested.

Looking back at my post, her summer coffee special version of her figma looks vastly inferior to her original school uniform figma. She doesn't feel moe enough for my taste.
>> No. 923 [Edit]
It might not be as cute, but it still sold very well as it's the only cast off figma to date wish nudity, that I know of.

I'm certain that only (a likely very small) part of the money they make will go to the translators, but I'm guessing that's not what you meant to say.
>> No. 905 [Edit]

Me again. The patch works like a charm. Yeah, some stuff is left untranslated but it hasn't bothered me that much. As a matter of fact, there was one scene where there was a CG but no speech bubble so it was left untranslated... and I understood it all. I never tried to learn a single japanese word so that was kinda wierd. It's scary how much of it is stuck in my head just due to watching anime/palying VNs. Oh well.

And the game itself is really great. It's been a while since I enjoyed a VN this much. I guess I just prefer light-hearted (or rather, totally absurd) stuff like this rather than serious stories when it comes to VNs. It's the exact opposite with books, however - I absolutely hate when author tries to force some kind of humorous, toungue-in-cheek narrative in a book. It just feels wrong for me.


>So any money made by JAST for the sale of this game goes to the fan translators for Osadai.

As >>225 menotined, you probably meant some, not any. I don't think that's the case. In this kind of situations the translators would usually receive all the money they were offered for their translations at once and that's it. They won't get any % of the royalities from the sales. Of course, I might be wrong but I'm pretty confident about my guess.


Same here. They did it with pretty much altruistic intentions so it's great to see that their hard work got rewarded and I'm happy for them. I can't believe there are people out there who are bitching about how they 'sold out'. It's ridiculous.
Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
>> No. 906 [Edit]
Probably because they did sell out. If anything release the game, since it was already finished, then pick a new game to work on as a commercial release.

Getting to nearly 100% then suddenly saying LOL NOPE, JAST TIEM then making everybody wait for god who knows now. I doubt many people are going to end up buying it.
>> No. 907 [Edit]

Of course this just means we have to wait a little while longer to pirate it.

The translators get paid and we download their translations for free, everybody wins, except for Jast, fuck them.

Is there any hope to see original VN AIR in English?
I've read Clannad and Kanon - and now I can't even watch their anime adaptations... They look like different stories... about your old friends. I hope I could read Maeda's original AIR, not it's adaptation...

VisualArts would target fan translators translating some of their lesser-known works. Not so sure if it's hypocrisy. They didn't target LB or Tomoyo After for C&D. And Kanon and Clannad were untouched by some C&D bullshit. And nobody's working on Kudwafter.

VisualArts tends to be pissed about non-Japanese in general and throws in all kinds of shit to stop piracy, including the new anti-non-Japanese OS Siglus engine for Rewrite. Of course, Key has no say in this and doesn't give out C&Ds.

I guess the main trouble is the lack of interest that translators have for Air, so they tend to pick it up and drop it repeatedly.
>> No. 878 [Edit]
Maybe someone could translate it but not spread the word all over the place until it's finished?
but yes, that is stupid.
>> No. 879 [Edit]

Jeez, that's been a while with no update. It would be great if someone picked it up that actually had the intention of finishing it.
>> No. 880 [Edit]
They've already dropped it.

So did they say anything on playable factions? Japan only, after all?
I guess I am a bit vexed that they play on each nation's stereotypes and yet the japanese team is all beauty and strength "look at us we're the heroes".

is it reasonable to NTR the girl you are interested in
so when you do play her route you feel a lot better about it?
I've never cared for playing eroges put I suppose now is a good time to start since anime and computer games don't bring the joy they use to.
and well that sort of the angle i'm approaching this
so is it a reasonable way of going about it?

>> No. 862 [Edit]

That's what I've been doing when I first began playing them but after ending up with the girl I liked the least time and time again I sort of gave up on that. Now I'm trying to maitain some sort of balance and play as if I were the MC (although not always) BUT I make some exceptions when it comes to picking the heroines.

This is pretty much off topic but even though I'm always attracted to ara ara well-mannered ojou-samas is anime and manga I tend to pick all sorts of different character types on my first playthrough in VNs (including tsunderes and genki girls who I usually dislike).


>I like to get into it and actually portray myself as the MC.

I sometimes like to do that, too, but I prefer VNs where MC is a 'real' person. Bonus points for face (well, this faceless MC thing is pretty stupid either way) and voice acting.

Oh, and I found the way sex was portrayed in YMK very off-putting (I dropped it solely because of this).

For most games, it really isn't a problem.

In YMK, however....

Is there any confirmation of the characters' ages in Higurashi?

Based on the setting and everything it seems to imply that they're all elementary schoolers, but the chest tumors on Mion/Shion are a bit large for that young.

I guess that wouldn't be completely out of the question for anime style character design though.
>> No. 852 [Edit]

Mion/shion are the oldest of them. I'm guessing 18 since the year after Higurashi they graduate.
I think K1 is 17, since after they left, he becomes the oldest guy in school.

Rena is probably 16, but Rika and Sakoto are much younger. Probably 11-12 years old?
>> No. 853 [Edit]
About right. I think Satoko is supposed to be a couple of years older than Rika though, who's probably 9-10

The confusing thing is their all going to the same class. I don't think that would work too well, even with Ciel as your teacher.
>> No. 854 [Edit]
Well, the older students were supposed to also act as teachers to some extent. That's why they showed the class having joint study time all the time.
