MangaGamer has started an official staff blog, with posts currently by one of the translators and one of the translation checkers. The first post is soliciting discussion topics for future posts. The latest post states that the CG issue for Soul Link is still being discussed. The post also goes on to describe the upcoming Higurashi release, stating that translation check and proofreading is done and that “as a test case, [they] are doing something very special for this release.” Furthermore, according to the latest entry on the main site, MangaGamer will be opening their all-ages site for the Higurashi release. The tentative release date is December 15, 2009, and the entire site is scheduled to reopen at 10:00am CET on that day after a 6 hour scheduled downtime.

UPDATE: Anime News Network is holding a contest to win a free copy of Higurashi: When They Cry, open to people 18 and over who register new accounts with MangaGamer.

UPDATE 2: MangaGamer states that they are currently discussing the censorship issue and will post on the website and blog when they reach a final decision.

    Mangagamer sure is on a roll.
    Its a good idea to bring all-ages games to the table aswell,
    that might interest a broader audience ; if the select the right titles of course.

    Sure is a better idea than bring titles like Tasty Shafts.
