Post About Minori

Apparently another email to NNL, but compared to the 1st mail this one seems to be more reserved and withdrawn.

What are the fans view on this however? Personally I don't know how difference it will make.

be it that they send 1 or 10 C&D emails, it is all the same to me. The real problem is not in the C&D emails (which they had to right to send, and NNL should have respected), but it was with the treatment we received from them. They practically (well, literally) told us not to buy their stuff unless we live in Japan (we don't want your money), and that it was our fault that they were threatened domestically with the loli and rape ban.

either way, people make mistakes, and as I wrote before, if minori take some effort to address the Western fans (English understanding ones), be it that they apologies for the bad treatment or try to make some effort to translate their titles, then to me, this affair is just water under the bridge.

I am looking forward to some positive results from the talk between minori and NNL.

it's really hard to distinguish if everything will go well between the two parties, since many things already happened. I wonder if Minori really wanted their games to be translated (by NNL). since judging from what they said "Don't buy our stuff unless you live in japan". that would put others out of the line and I don't want to say that they're merciless to outsiders (that's a pretty large generalization). we really need a positive mindset here, and some clarifications.

I'm a bit worried about the negotiations, since the head of NNL tends to be a little... standoff-ish. Ah, heck, I'll just say it. Gipface is downright rude a lot the time. He's an utter troll. That won't fly when dealing with Japanese businessmen.

If you look at user's votes on vndb, you will see that you're one of the very, very few people who think so.

That's why we all love him.

At worst, minori intends to lure NNL to Japan, where they'll have some policemen waiting (Valve style). Sets a harsh example.

At best, they're actually interested in negotiating, although I don't see this going anywhere, given their conditions.

Yeah, vndb votes sure matter. Especially when NNL specifically fished for votes on ef by begging their fans to vote high on it.

vndb's userbase is terrible enough to begin with (Ever17, Umineko, Umineko Chiru, and Little Busters in the top 10? Don't make me laugh.), let alone without provocation to upvote some shitty game with kawaii uguu Nanao Naru art.

Well, the first season of the ef anime was great, at least.

Damn straight about the vndb userbase. To call them morons would be an insult to morons.

If you want to get a good laugh, check out these ratings:

Symphonic Rain 8.45 (very good)
Sharin no Kuni 8.82 (very good)
Saya no Uta 8.50 (very good)
Chaos;Head 8.07 (very good)

Very good? Please! Utterly laughable that garbage like this should be so highly rated. The only ones more brain-dead than the people who rated this garbage so high are the fools that actually took the time to translate this crap. Once again, excellent point about the vndb userbase.
