Day 5 of THE 12 MOMENTS OF ANIME, SPONSORED BY CCY.

YAYS:

  • Started out with a bunch of people who loved these “interactive picture books (kinda)” enough to translate and/or localize them in English
  • …And then people started being dicks and decided to pirate planetarian, which caused one of the pioneering groups to throw a massive hissyfit.
  • Which led to al|together, which… … … didn’t turn out so well.
  • Flashforward to today: we have many groups translating visual novels. And we have JASTUSA partnering with Nitro+, and Mangagamer licensing Shuffle! and Higurashi. Mangagamer also approves of fantranslations. YAY!

BOOS:

  • Gipface is a dick. And is still alive. And the biggest loser in the visual novel translation scene. HURR.
  • BREAK THE SUPPORT DISC, which was extremely famous and known outside this little community.
