Hey there, it’s been a while since I’ve updated this. We’ve not been totally dead however. We’re still working on Nanatsu no Taizai with Jaimini’s Box.
Tsurezure Children is something we gave up on, seeing how we simply did not have the time and motivation for the redraws each and every week. However, the weekly threads on /a/ take care of it, and it’s in good hands.
Now; as you might have seen in the title, we’ve decided to go ahead and translate a visual novel. It was something both Triplicate and I wanted to do for a while, we just couldn’t find the good VN to do so.
We’re aware that someone was already working on translating this specific visual novel, but the person in question has not made any updates since February ’15, so we assumed his project has died.
The girls in this VN looked cute enough to spend at least some time in translating it. We decided to do the prologue first, and then see if the girls and the story interested us both enough to continue to do the entire VN. If you want an overview/summary of the VN; here’s the VNDB link.
What we didn’t expect however, was that this VN uses the MC’s cellphone to send and receive a shitload of texts. The cellphone itself is also usable by the player, and so we had to translate every bit of user interface of the phone. Was a bit of a challenge but we’ve solved it quite elegantly.
Self-installing patch: Here – Just run the exe and point to the Hatsukoi folder; then run Launcher.exe
If you don’t like downloading and running random exes from the internet, here’s the ‘old way’ of patching.
Old-school extraction patch: Here – Just extract everything in the Hatsukoi root folder, then run Launcher.exe
If you come across any typos or bugs, let us know by commenting below. We hopefully will make an update post bi-weekly (no, not twice a week) with the translation progress. As of yet, we’re still unsure if we’ll release a patch every time we complete a girl’s route. We don’t want to become the next Miyako route TL: 85%.
That’s all for now, if you have any questions, just ask them here or PM me on reddit. Usernames are Irru/Tanagrine.
