This general is for the discussion of English translated Japanese visual novels.
If you see a blatant shitposter, report and ignore.
Kindly use spoiler tags appropriately when discussing plot spoilers to facilitate smooth discussion.
/vng/ confirmed canon by mods.
/vn/ apologists officially butt-annhiliated.
Christians are the reason we can't have anything nice.
All the /jp/ posters got BTFO by being called JOPs, didn't you hear? They're gone and beaten.
What VN has the best art?
grisaia in terms of quality I'd say.
>grisaia in terms of quality I'd say.
Are you serious?
Sakura no Uta counts too I guess, since it's pretty much the same art.
>EOP plebs showing their inferiority
By that logic, you should be saying HatsuMira has the best art, because it's streets ahead of Grisaia.
Haven't read it yet and was going off of what I've already read.
Looks like that one is by the same guys as grisaia though, so we can just condense and say frontwing makes the best VN art.
It feels good to know EOPs will never taint this with their grubby hands.
What are some vns where every girl is a slut?
I don't know. I dropped it because it's boring. There's pretty much no way for the game to have a satisfying conclusion because the world/character building is so awfully bland I think.
That'd be excluding G-Yuusuke though
Kamikaze pilot in WW2 gets knocked to a fantasy world after crashing into a boat. Hijinks ensue as high tough guy YAMATO DAMASHII conflicts with fantasy world around him. Also a lot of people die.
A main heroine. A big shot. Girl on the cover.
I don't even have anything to defend with this one desu.
I don't know how you can fuck up proportions so badly.
I think the Kikokugai remake has some of the best artwork in the medium.
The artist definitely produces the best sausage fingers.
What you actually mean is "pseudo-JOPs rule this place now." Too bad you were shunned from /jp/ by embarrassing yourself with your machine translations in company of people who have studied the language. Now kill yourself.
Oh shit, does that really say 剣 there? I can't believe that the translation removed that nuance. For you who can't understand, it says.
>Shirou Emiya will turn his heart into a sword (steel) and probably become an ally of justice
I can understanding dropping it for the majority of the VN, for the sake of fluidity. But, at the very least, it should have been included in the god-damn conclusion of MIND OF STEEL. That's a lot of naunce missing in the translation, completely cutting out "sword".
Moderation is aware of your pseudo workaround.
With logic like that, even perfectly legitimate and translated 100% English legit VNs such as pic related may get deleted. Beware unintended consequences.
What a wonderful start to the thread yet again.
I think we could have nice threads if people simply tried to act rationally.
You were fucking told that getting rid of JSLs instead of shitposters was a bad idea. Now they've switched over to this /vn/-/vng/ bullshit. You've made your bed, now lie in it, bitch.
But still, I'm hard.
Lately, I've been looking for a nukige called SayYah!, which is prequel to more known SayYah! 2003, but I have trouble finding it. I've searched quite extensively, but to no avail.
Some help would be appreciated.
I'm just a crotchety old man, I wouldn't listen to me. No fun allowed. Well, it got a 76 on EGS whereas Grisaia got a 85 so it looks like Japan wasn't as fond of it either, but in any case, it's an above average game for sure, especially compared to, say, Koirizo.
Can a JOP make himself useful and translate?
Is it optimistic to think a translation of KnS 3 will be finished in 4-6 years? I'm assuming the game will come out in the next 2 years.
But Koirizo is bottom of the barrel -tier moege. It's good for its type, sure, but it's so boring you couldn't pay me to read through it. Comparing Hatsumira to Koirizo reflects badly on the former.
you probably could pay me tbqh
THANK YOU BASED I_AM_ABIB, OUR MAJESTIC IRC.RIZON.NET #4CHAN SAVIOR
I KNOW WHO I WILL CALL UPON NEXT TIME JP LEAVES THEIR PISS-BOTTLE-FILLED BASEMENT
I just meant to say that compared to what's been released recently here (Koirizo, NobleWorks, Koichoco), it's pretty good. If you liked those three games you will probably enjoy HatsuMira a lot. My main complaint with the game was actually how Ichirou was a flawless dude who's always right, if that doesn't bother you you'll enjoy the game a hella lot more than I did no doubt. Also, the fact that the common route being so long necessitated a LOT of scenes in which nothing actually happened, if you get into the atmosphere of the game and relax you will also probably enjoy it more than I did.
Anyway, this is a discussion for four years in the future probably, Sekai still needs to finish up the other two Grisaia games after all.
It's a discussion for right now. If you haven't noticed, it's the ONLY actual discussion this general has right now.
And yeah, I'm a fan of protagonists that are "flawless and always right", or at least act like they've got their shit together, like Yuuji, Kotarou from Rewrite or Yamato from Majikoi.
Is the common as long as Grisaia's was? That being a good thing, since GnK's common was brilliant.
>comparing a Romeo protag to those low-tier pleb trash
You didn't understand a single thing about Rewrite.
I really doubt that having untranslated games posted here would remove the shitposting.
Also there is very little logic in posting them here anyway since they already have a general on /jp/.
Good news guys, our friends over at Reddit have made a guide to reading visual novels in Japanese!
Do you find EOP to be an insulting term?
I've never really understood it since even though I might not know Japanese, I'm fluent in three languages and can follow and have slow conversations still in a fourth so English only has always felt weird to me.
EOP is so widely used not because it's insulting, but because it fits a niche. What do you call people who don't know Japanese but still read VN translations?
>Visual novel fans that read translations
>people who don't know Japanese
etc etc. In comparison, a simple
is short, fast to type, and convenient. That's why it caught on and is still being used. No other single word conveys the nuance that EOP does. So, it gets used.
Also, EOP refers to people being stuck to English translations of VNs, not only knowing one language. So even people with four languages, if you don't know Japanese and have to read English translations of VNs, you are EOP.
Yes but why give it a term of its own?
I've read numerous books from Russian authors but since I don't understand any Russian, I've naturally read translations.
Same with French, Greek etc.
Yet no one would really scorn me for not learning the language these novels were originally written in.
Kara no Shoujo 3 hype!
I hope Yukari doesn't die
without getting the Reiji dick
>Yes but why give it a term of its own?
It's convenient and short and describes a common phenomenon. It was first used by a troll on /jp/ awhile ago and caught on because it's so convenient. It's like, "why give cuckoldry a term of it's own"? same deal.
If you're telling everyone to fuck off, maybe they arent the problem...
>EOPs will never read this because of the KnS2 shit sales
Worst thread and its barely the 3rd
you know damn well thats not what i meant
fuck i took the bait
>I'm having too much fun shitposting about JOPs, EOPs, and >/vng/
Say that to my default windows sounds
How does one go about achieving a higher degree of understanding of ridiculousness?
There's a route in your heart.
>You show interest in Makoto, she blushes and awkwardingly stutters in a magnificent display of gap moe, as your feelings caught her by surprise >Go on a date with her in a mall, visit one of the Sanjou stores where she proudly shows you the underwear collection she designed, tell her it looks great, but would look even cuter if a beautiful girl like her was wearing it, see her blush again but try to play it off with a joke
>Slowly progress your relationship being supportive of her desired career, acting as the lingerie connoisseur who rates, comments and gives tips on her latest designs, most of them tested on herself, until she decides to make a design for massive breasts, which results in a master plan of cooperation between Takumi and her to get Sena to wear the mega-milk-sized set
>As the story progresses, they keep oscillating between fun bro hijinks and cute mushy love. By then, Takumi reveals to her his real identity, which she takes really well and admits not being exactly close to Shuri before anyway. Then they proceed to fuck the breath out of each other, whispering mushy love things in each other's ears, that both could never admit to do in front of their circle of friends, where they act like a best-bros-lovers hybrid.
>In the ending, Shuri gets fine and good enough to attend school, after a successful surgery, and as such Takumi's work is no longer necessary for the time being.
>When a depressed Takumi tells Makoto he will have to leave Rokuroku as his job is done insisted, she just storms out saying she has an idea and will talk to you later.
>In the next day, the class is very surprised when Takumi and Shuri appear together, telling the truth of Takumi's job while Shuri was hospitalized, and annoucing Takumi will also keep attending Rokuroku himself until graduation, under the sponsorship of the Sanjou family, as even though Makoto's family is incredibly nice and supportive, they would still like their future son-in-law to have graduated from a good institution to be an able husband.
>The epilogue is Makoto and Takumi getting married, with all the cast attending the ceremony, followed by a short time skip where Takumi has become an underwear fashion expert, studying French, Italian and classical lingerie fashion, supporting Makoto, who grew to become one of the most well-renowned lingerie designer with extremely popular cute and sexy product lines, and is currently taking a break from work because of her pregnancy, until their child is born. Their daily lives consists of being the most bro couple ever, working together in new designs while both brainstorm ideas of what would look cuter, with Makoto making her smug face everytime she got inspired.
Fuck, I might be in love ;_;
Teach me how to be a jew like you, Soutarou-senpai
you are all stupid fucking monkeys. get a life. you pathetic creatures that lurk in your your parents' basement. with such little children when you have to be ... not too tired to fuck you, dim-witted after all the time to shoot the breeze than what wankers. your IQ is as big as your penis size - that is fucking small. Why are you here when you could be reading a visual novel, and flushed all the worries out of a good fuck. parents may be disappointed loser children, but it does not mean that you can come here freely to write nonsense shit when they too life is just that. Satan bastards, maybe you should consider euthanasia, because your life is already fucking wonderful torture. pray to the father that you did not have to go to hell, but taking into account who you are, but you will have the deepest hell hole. Have fun, when the devil the devil will make you his sex slaves, even though it has already been a hell of an honor you little shit.
Isn't that head waaaaay too big?
Or is she an Alien?
Dick status: muh
I have a feeling she's the type of heroine who will give my heart a boner and make my dick go dokidoki deep into her route.
Oh shit m8.
Enjoy the route then anon. If you plan on playing the others, I suggest saving her for last.
Oh shit, did some group finally finish translating this?
I usually play my favorites first, at the risk of being underwhelmed later, but at least I get to experience the freshness of the story with the best heroine, resulting in the highest possible enjoyment factor.
Then the other routes are just an afterglow.
The worst part is that if a newcomer stumbles upon this thread if they're a reasonable anon they're disgusted and get out and then only the ones who want nothing but shitposting start posting.
>How long can a person perpetually shit post?
You do know what perpetual means right?
Just use the 4chan x filter. Right now about three fourths of the thread are filtered for me, but the remaining third is pretty decent.
Here, I'll even share my filters, put them on the comment section:
# L O N D O N / O / N / D / O / N -type posts
/th for Saber./i;boards:vg
At this point one can only be amazed how much of a no life they are, if they applied that tenacity to anything else, they could go far. Sad creatures, really.
411th for Eika is best Ikikoi.
Umi is a slut.
Thanks for increasing the efficacy, I'm updating the filters.
Make sure to add my updates, and learn the basic syntax (it's really easy) to update your filters yourself as needed
Nope, /lol*/i would filter loli, as * is a wildcard.
Also, it's funny how much effort they are putting into circumventing my filter and instead making it sturdier and sturdier, as it's permanent.
so when posts get filtered do they still show up in the thread as minimized/hidden or are they gone all together?
Im thinking about setting it up myself as well. recently the amount of shitposting is out of fucking control.
>it's funny how much effort they are putting into circumventing my filter
As for >>127380443 I was just making a joke.
Not like I'm seriously going to make posts using capital i s in place of lowercase Ls, you know.
All of them. Too cute.
>Select all images with Palm Trees
It's two clicks for me, and running an image editing software for you to alter it. You can't keep up.
Reminder, if you think this line is even remotely difficult then you've never read a light novel, much less an actual book. I'm just not a beginner from DJT like you guys are. Lines like that are incredibly common in any sort of fantasy fiction. You're either new to Japanese or just read moege all the time.
All that's left is worthy of reading.
For anyone else filtering, it doesn't look like this
I just disabled it for comedic effect. Just uncheck "Stubs" in the 4chan x config, and everything completely disappears, thread just looks clean.
Is it me or is that building in the background leaning to the right?
>no actual nudity.
Only barely. That bath scene might as well have nudity in it.
It is, but that's not completely uncommon/unheard of. It doesn't really affect structural intetrigy so long as it isn't absurdly pronounced (see Pisa Tower). It's usually a miscalculation of terrain integrity during construction, but completely safe to use and only an aesthetical issue.
Most buildings lean up to 15°, it's just hard to notice unless they are really tall.
3rd year Civil Engineering here.
I agree that Hina is terrible in general but her smug is fucking S rank
Then what do you rank Makoto's smug? SSS++Mega?
I remember I didn't have a favorite coming out but really disliked Kosame, not sure why though.
As in if there was a choice to reject her and not accept her apology, I would have picked that choice immediately.
I remember that I wanted her route to be about Kosame getting the MC to fuck her sister even though she had feelings for the guy. Basically, she'd be instigating her own NTR and would be crying outside as MC and Komomo fuck in her room.
I'm not even into this sort of stuff but I just remember really disliking this chick to the point of absurdity.
Maybe I should replay the game.
>deciding which girl to deito
This is tough. I keep wanting to reload previous saves and change my decision
