  • JAST USA and MangaGamer deliver year-end updates

    December 31st, 2011, by zalas in Translation

    Both JAST USA and MangaGamer have delivered their year-end updates. From the JAST USA end, it looks like Saya no Uta and Hanachirasu will be sold separately, although there will be a discount for buying them together. The two games along with Sumaga are scheduled to be out before Anime Expo. Meanwhile, MangaGamer states that they’re working on a 4th hard copy game from the J-List distribution deal, which will be a game they have already released that they are trying to fix up. Furthermore, they’re also aiming for a end-of-February or beginning-of-March release for DEARDROPS, while the trial version is currently out for people to try out the game. Dengeki Stryker and Harukoi Otome are still in translation, with the former aimed at a release by the time Anime Expo comes around. As for ef – the first tale, it’s still undergoing review by NNL of the latest build from minori, which if it passes, will allow the release to proceed.

  • NNL posts ef preview

    October 8th, 2011, by zalas in Translation

    No Name Losers has posted a lengthy preview of MangaGamer’s upcoming release of ef – the first tale. Improvements over the original game and/or the fansubbed release include the ability to choose fonts for the dialogue display, a revised English script, an improved upsampling filter and an option to use an alternate set of fade and scroll speeds. Furthermore, NNL and MangaGamer’s editor developed two different styles for resolving the issue of mismatched dialogue text length between the original Japanese script and the English script, which is very apparent with the Japanese audio. Chapter 1 of the game will use NNL’s approach and Chapter 2 of the game will use MangaGamer’s approach. The conclusion of the post suggested future sneak-peak updates of this nature.

The website for No Name Losers has also been updated with more information about what will be in these two upcoming releases.

    UPDATE: More details and links added to writeup and certain statements were removed at the request of our source. The article has also been reordered and NNL has issued a comment, stating that:

    [W]e appreciate the summary of events that [have been] written up — and that we’d prefer that everyone: the community, Gemot Encubed, and No Name Losers, move on from the bitter events of the past, as the minori/Mangagamer/No Name Losers partnership demonstrates so beautifully.

  • ever fresh

    September 21st, 2010, by zalas in Translation

    No Name Losers has updated its website slightly, with the phrase “Ready for some magic?” and a picture of a broomstick with supipara written on top and “Alice the magical conductor” writtten below. supipara happens to be minori’s newly announced title, being the fifth in its main line releases according to its subtitle “minori’s 5th debut about ‘Wonder’”. This title was announced with a movie at the end of minori’s latest release, Tenshi no Nichiyoubi. There have been no updates from minori’s site so far.

    UPDATE: minori’s site has now been updated to redirect to http://overseas.minori.ph/ for people accessing from outside Japan and currently has Yuuko Amamiya flying past Japan carrying a bottle. It currently has the text “See you tomorrow !!”

    UPDATE 2: On minori’s site, Yuuko now appears to be headed towards Toronto, Canada, and No Name Losers’ website now has a picture of a smiling Miyako Miyamura standing next to an open mailbox with a bottle protruding out of it. The image file is aptly named “received.png”.

    UPDATE 3: Yuuko is now seen zooming off east, leaving a prone and scantily clad Miyako behind next to a Canadian flag marking Toronto.

    UPDATE 4: Yuuko is now on her way to what appears to be the Netherlands, and the caption was changed to: “Japan-Canada-??? See you tomorrow !!!!!”

    UPDATE 5: The top image on minori’s website has been replaced with a picture of super-deformed ef characters. There’s Miyako talking on the phone along with a frantic Mizuki trying to stop an angry Kei. “Tomorrow!” seems to be what the three are shouting.
