What do you guys think? Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come.

Now there's no stopping the Witch Hunt, really.
I wonder if Ryukishi07 wrote any similar letters to Geneon or Yen+ for the Higurashi anime and manga translations?

Oh this is very good. It could be quite a good sign indeed for the future. Maybe there will be more approvals to come.

Rodan: He probably did, as they needed permission from him to license it.

I remember reading an interview with him in Yen+ where he said something about english readers not being able to read the original storķes. I wondered then if any of them had any idea about the fan translations. So he did know :P

I find it awesome that he wrote in a sort of dedication in the story.

Mm... I'd think it would be a lot more formal, since Geneon and Yen+ would have to talk to the media conglomerates and not him directly, as those conglomerates would own the rights to the anime and manga adaptations.

I'm wondering if this might open the door to an eventual license of the game franchise by fans? Because that would go a long way for establishing good pr for all the efforts being invested by fans.

I think it's fantastic news, by the way. Congratulations, Witch Hunt!

I like that idea, in theory its not impossible for a group of fans to get together and form a legit company to license these games for english translation. The main problem is still and always will be money, the games need to sell and people need to be paid, these fan translations take away all of that and make it possible for the games to be translated at low costs. It really is surprising to see a company offer their support and I wish all of them were like that. I wonder where this new road will lead us.

I wonder that too Message. That would be awesome if it was licensed! I would buy it immediately and tell my friends. xD

Congratulations, Witch Hunt!~

Actually, 07th Expansion is not a company, but a doujin circle. Hence, they have a lot more freedom to do things the way they want.
