They probably copied it from some code - as you may know, in programming languages like C, '\' is a special character in strings, and you have to write '\\' to get a single '\'.

Oh, wait, I totally misread this. I add my condolences to Nanatuha's.

for your info, Amazon does NOT ship software world wide (I tried more then once to get RedHat CDs from them, in the end I had to buy books that come with the CDs instead of buying the CDs themselves and give money to RedHat). Heck many online shop doesn't. And for that matter, am not sure if they will even display H games

I remember buying Mark Minasi's Windows 2003 Server book from Amazon, but I can't say the same for the actual cd. That's because Amazon is very stringent in regards to US exportation laws on software, as well as hardware. I'd assume that you may be able to get software shipped from amazon.co.jp, but I personally haven't tried it. Any takers?

Dunno about the chuckles, but I used to prefer the english dubs. Not long after I decided to try out subtitles with original audio and I soon start realizing how the dubs can easily stray away from the original plot. If I decide not to read the subs for sentences I understand then I get even more of the creator's intentions. Head overheats just trying to translate speaking speed at times though.

Hmm, I guess I assumed they'd treat "AnimePlay" the same way they treat regular anime DVDs, which they do happily ship to any region, completely ignoring region codes in my experience. I admit I've never tried them on software. But I wouldn't expect games to have the same export restrictions as operating systems? (Totally ignorant about US law here...)

Still, the H thing shouldn't be an issue, as I'm assuming Hirameki will be continuing to sell only all-age games.

OT: if anyone's worried, let me reassure you that neither I nor anyone I know has been directly affected by the terror attacks in London. My thoughts are with those who have.

Great to see you're okay! I shudder to think what the other otaku on this board would resort to should the unspeakable happen ^_^

I realise you folk who live in big countries tend to think of Britain as being about the size of one of your shopping malls, but it is a fair size as island nations go. Where I live is barely any closer to London than the distance between Osaka and Tokyo... ^^;

Amazon don't export Software (include video game).

From personal experience, I think that it's easier to ask a small shop exporting them. They were pretty tolerance, or I should express to "loose". ^^; I might be merely lucky, though.

Excuse me, that comparison is already an cause of misunderstanding. I've been asked one time like as "I know. Japan is next to India, isn't it?". ;)

I agree; chances are that there will always be someone out there willing to export video games from one country to the next.

I know it's been four days, but I'll throw in my two cents anyway.

Title choices aside, I'm glad there are developers interested in the renai game market as something other than a source of exotic pornography. Their success can only mean good things to follow, whether from them or other companies which join the market.

It's interesting to note that in spite of the fact that renai games have been around for at least 20 years now, the market in Japan is still rather small as far as hobby industries go - in spite of the fact that it's also the home of related industries such as manga, anime, cosplay, and so on, as well as where the developers are located (except for that odd studio which appears to be in New Zealand). If they're going to succeed in the west at all, I imagine that it'll have be more of a cultural victory than a financial one.

English has never been the 'optimum' language in which to play things so heavily reliant on cultural subtext like renai games and bishoujo anime - a fact which becomes painfully obvious (far more so than when people are simply parsing translated text) when people are actually acting out the lines, simply because often, despite Herculean efforts to keep the dialogue both coherent and accurate, these aren't the conversational contexts we in the west are used to.

As a result, I'd have to say that Japanese dialogue would be a better option, even for non-speakers. It might sound like gibberish, but it conveys the sense of emotion and the timing that the makers intended you to hear - things which are inevitable casualties when English voice actors have to repeat the lines after they've been bent into an alternative phrasing in a completely different language.

Of course, a switch option would be even better, but I assume that'd push games which could fit onto CDs into DVD territory.

Such bitter irony it would be to see the English games come out, only to be just as hard to obtain for us non-Americans as the Japanese games =P

Haven't you guys ever looked at the shelves and asked yourself "Who comes up with this crap?" or "Why would I pay more than $10 for this?"
