Saw this today on http://heiseidemocracy.net/
Alice Soft was hardly hurting for good karma, but they’ve secured a place in fan’s affections today by releasing an entire, unedited eroge for free download. Shimaima was originally released as part of the Alice no Yakata 7 pack of games and bonus discs, but seems to be no less the full-fledged game for it.

Yet another Japanese company shows they don't get the Internet by releasing a 750MB file for direct download...

Why is it that Type-Moon are the only eroge makers who seem to have caught on to the fact that BitTorrent can be incredibly convenient for legal users too?

Ah well, not like I could read it anyway.

I think most eroge users wouldn't use it unless Japanese language version exists.
(Though there is a language patch for staple part but other parts like FAQ or Version history are still inconvenient for them)

Azureus (and other clients?) should have full japanese gui and faq.

Ah, good point, I hadn't thought of that.

(Though, in that case I'm still slightly surprised that nobody has made a new Japanese program that speeds up downloads in the same way...)

Well, Japanese anime watchers don't seem to have problems downloading fansubs >.>

I'm using azureus, later i used bitcomet, and both of those clients automatically turned their GUI and in-progam help lang into japanese when i changed everything in 'regional and language options' to japanese to play fate trial, so i don't think it would be the problem.

Why, there is? My bad. I've talked by a little knowledge.

<totally not serious>
"Come on guys, I know you aren't playing our games, so we're gonna give them away!!! Come on, play them, pleeeeeeeease ;_;"

which would soon turn into

"Okay, we'll PAY you 9000 yen to play our games!"
</totally not serious>

Because they're the only ones who know it exists? They're the only ones who aren't a "business" which is the basic equation of a VERY large group of chickens without heads? (And as someone said earlier, Azureus now supports Unicode, so it's not like they've got an excuse)
