Yes, they are supposed to be. Although one could interpret it as them being hermaphrodites as well (ie. no *defined* sex), AFAIK.

Kenn Haven't a clue. I've only played a few, but they were all very good.

Asceai Ahahahaha, what a mixup

Also, Cosplay Fetish Academy is still most likely better than Aqua Blue so you wouldn't really love _ANYTHING_ Giga localised, would you? =P
2010-02-23 02:12
Kenn Cosplay Fetish Academy isn't by Giga (on page http://translationlibrary.blicky.net...database06.htm). Got my hopes up for nothing. :x I'd love to see anything Giga ported.

Asceai It's not that weird; there's plenty of eroges made for Christians, like that Cybele one where the protagonist finds an angel and turns her into his sex slave

Well, it does. But you have to say, it was weird combination, given that most probably monastery is Christian and most probable VN is ero.

I don't play a lot of VNs myself--I even ignored the most recent al|together entries--and my intention in maintaining the website has been from the very start to cultivate an English-speaking visual novel community. There are three reasons this is becoming less relevant to me:

1. Whether I forwarded this goal at all or not, it has been reached somehow or another. There are now two major visual novel licensors, MangaGamer and JAST USA (of course, Peter Payne has been doing this forever but I think his deal with Nitro+ is fairly major). I am quite satisfied that visual novels are being given a fair chance to flourish commercially in the USA.
2. A large minority of translation projects these days are being produced specifically by pirates, for pirates, and a great majority of people who play fan translations have pirated the game. This disappoints me because it runs counter to my vision of American and Japanese fans working harmoniously. I could snub the pirates and limit my translations to those approved by publishers and artists, but I'm not gp32 and I know my website does not have that sort of influence on the 4chan crowd.
3. I've always been more interested in religion than anime and I don't really see it as a loss to disengage myself.

Someone else can take over my site in this coming year. I will give you FTP access to the directory at shii.org so there's no hosting issue. I'm going to be writing my senior thesis in October and probably going back to the monasteries next year so the sooner the better.

Thanks for putting up with me these past four years.

Stranger according to post on http://visual-novels.net/ Love Plus for the DS is being translated to English ( project page, http://www.tsukuru.info/tlwiki/index...itle=Love_Plus ).

I have no idea how it will work though.

StrawberryShorty "Brass Restoration" is incorrectly listed as part of the "Humor" genre, when it's actually a "Drama" title. There's some romance, but drama works best for it. It really does not belong in the humor category at all. There are a few funny moments, but overall, every single chapter is drenched in angst.

I would be happy to do that if someone on the encubed side is willing to maintain it.

Magedark I bid farewell then Shii. You have been an amazing resource for your collection of VN translations. Although, I'm not sure what your definition of flourish for VN's in America is, but I'll just agree with it since I have little experience in that section.
