Let people get what they want out of VNs. I think it's both insulting and inaccurate to generalise that these 'hentai fanatics' pirate VNs any more or less than people who play them for stories. I don't know why you think people playing visual novels for the H somehow diminishes the value of the visual novels in question, or whatever you're getting at, but I think you're wrong.

Nephrinn While I can understand what the anonymous poster is saying, is it really no different than games like GTA4, where the fun is going on mass murdering sprees? People, like Jack Thompson, complain that those games are harmful to not only the industry, but society, however, that doesn't stop millions from purchasing and playing them.

Of course, I have no where near those numbers, but consider that almost 1000 people have downloaded my English translation of Asagi and well over 100 have visited my website and voted for Gang Rape Club. If anything, I could argue that I have garnered the attention of many Hentai fans rather than scaring them away.

Apples I'm inclined to agree with jyuichi. Sure, most people would find "confinement adventures" distasteful, but if they stumble upon one Gang Rape Club and assume all VNs are the same, it's their loss.

Furthermore, one has to consider how objective this sort of thing is. Plenty of people would find an average Renai game unpleasant because of young characters, deflowerings, etc. It's not fair to say these dark games are bad because they go beyond my personal level of comfort.

And that's why most games will never be banned.

Plus people may end up assuming that all visual novel fans support rape, or something.

On that note, I'm glad were getting a translation in a genre besides Ren'Ai (I love it but it gets old) Variety is the spice of life.

Enerccio I really like that someone is doing even darker games. Every translation is good and I will try to play them all. Even if it's rape. Hell, I bought even Violent Semen Inferno and that was something (and it was good game, albeit little short).
2008-04-26 20:41
Asceai My thoughts are similar. I love to see people translating stuff, but sorry, I find it difficult to get excited about a game called 'Gang Rape Club'. =p

However, I still support your work. Keep it up!

It really is great to have such a dedicated translator in the community, and it looks like you're definitely doing something more interesting than the mainstream eroge.
I try to be dedicated anyway. :)

(not that it's really my thing - I can't read the title "Prostitute House Confinement Adventure" without giggling. And don't get me started on "Female Ninja Tentacle Gangrape Adventure" At least such titles let you know exactly what you're getting into.)
Actually, those are the genres not the titles, although the titles don't deviate much from the genres. :P I find it all quite amusing myself, but there's little humor to be found in these games. I sometimes wonder about the sanity of the people writing these games (and the ones translating them). :)

YEAH! thats me!!! :D

Nephrinn I don't know what to say.... You are the man!

I definately love these kind of games, while the romance stuff are good, these darker ones are really needed :D

Anyways I'm playing Asagi right now and loving it I was just telling Echo how I admired your work on the game... Seriously.

I'm also reading your blog I hope it all goes well with the new game's translation.

Cheers
I really appreciate the feedback and I'm glad you're liking one of my favorite games ever. :) I just updated my blog on the status of the new game I'm translating and it's coming along quite well. If I can just get 1% of the script done everyday (which is easy, maybe 2-3 hours of work), I should be able to finish the game in roughly 3 months time.

drmchsr0 Get to TLwiki.

We need translators :V

well translating game made with normal scripted engine is probably easier than game made with wysiwyg one.
