Are we there yet?

Short answer: no. This is the last update of 2014, and it seems a lot of people seemed to believe in a possible Christmas release. I don’t think we ever said anything about that or even hinted at such a possibility. The Koichoco translation is progressing, but still at a fairly slow pace. We’ll get there, just not as fast as many of you would like.

Just hold on to our “projected date” from the October post and you might be pleasantly surprised in 2015 (or not). I think I talked about it before, but maybe it was not the best decision to release our partial patch so early, especially with the knowledge we now have. But what’s done is done. We’ll do our best to bring you the full patch as soon as possible.

Here’s the translation progress for this month:

Common/Chisato: 18398/18398
Satsuki: 8334/8334
Michiru: 6547/6547
Isara: 5919/5919
Mifuyu: 5425/5425

Translation: 397/397 files
Editing: 317/397 files
QC: 207/397 files

Best wishes for 2015 and may it become a good year for visual novel enthusiasts!

    Fuck, I really want to play this game.
    But at least you are making progress even if it seems slow-going.
    Please don’t misunderstand, I’m eternally grateful for your work, I’m just eager to play Koichoco, that`s all.
    I do understand the limitations and the priority of real life.

    We know you guys didnt hint any christmas release, but that was not misunderstanding on our part (ok, not mine at least, but I guess people who does wait with me for koichoco will agree with me on that), it was more like wishful thinking along with some hopes that you guys MIGHT by chance want to surprise us. And again, we seriously DO appreciate your work, even if we complain here and there or are impatient.

    Some news is better then none 🙂 I can wait and be content as long as you project guys hang in there – I think the fans biggest fear is to of course see another VN dropped by a team.

    I believe the following is what many of us are thinking – that we don’t really ‘expect’ a certain pace from the translation team, though some of our comments might suggest otherwise. We’re really eager to play the game for our waifus, but all we’re wishing for is for this project to be successfully completed within an optimistic, reasonable timeframe (‘unreasonable’ would be like saying that you need….5 years to do it i guess?). We know it isn’t easy, but taking ‘too’ long to finish would result in the loss of interest from the TLer’s end and eventually lead to the abandoning of the project.

    That’s what we fear the most, and that’s why we’re constantly asking for updates – you don’t need to apologize for ‘late posts’ or ‘little progress’ since you’re doing this on your own accord and we’re not your bosses, but it’ll be nice to have a post time to time to let us know that the TL team is still alive and that we can keep looking forward to the full release. Even IF a project is getting dropped, it would be good to just post and let us know too. That’s the only real thing we ask from you guys really.

    So yes, we really appreciate your efforts and posts to let us know that it’s still going on. For now, have a great New Years and we’ll continue looking forward to the full release. 😀

    Happy new year!
    Haven’t been around that much for a while so I don’t know what was up with the thing of people thinking of a christmas release or anything…
    Was probably just the enthusiasm of a few people getting the better of them, I guess.
    No need to rush or anything. Take your time with the translation. We all know that you guys also have things other than doing work for the project going on and we all truly appreciate that you’ve taken on the task of translating this VN.
    Doing a whole translation of a VN is something that can be VERY time consuming as we all know, so please believe me when I say: We all are really thankful you’re sacrificing so much of your time to keep this project going.
    We are all supporting you guys and will continue to do so, which the comments above mine are proof of. 🙂

    Hello, guys! Thank you for your job! I hope release will be soon. I want to translate this game too, on russian language. Would you be so kind to share your tools(or at least hacking basics of this game)? I’m not good at this but I’m studying 🙂 Now I’m working on Grisaia no Kajitsu russian translation and I hope to translate this VN in the future.

      there wasn’t much progress to mention anyway, look forward to some actual progress in the next update

        It is less about progress… more like.. reassuring? Something like: We got our lives, there is not much to report, but hey, we are still here don’t worry too much, we got this.

    can´t wait for the finished product, would love to play through satsuki´s route.
    but nevertheless better take your time, before ruining what you´ve accomplished so far. wish you the best & may the ero-god watch over you
