Spike Chunsoft have announced that they will be creating a fandisc of Kenka Banchou Otome called Kenka Banchou Otome ~Kanzen Muketsu no My Honey~. Other than announcing its existence, no further details have been revealed at this stage.

 

Some new information to report about E2 Gaming’s localisation of Taishou x Alice thanks to Elly and her blog post in addition to her primary source, Flowermiko. I strongly recommend you all to read Elly’s post about this, as it goes into far more detail. To summarise the key pieces of information:

  • The localisation will be available in both English and Spanish.
  • All four episodes of Taishou x Alice (I, II, III and the Epilogue) will be localised.
  • The localisation is planned to be made available sometime during December 2016.
  • It will be a digital-only release with plans to sell it through Steam. There are currently no plans for a physical release.
  • The localisation will not only preserve the Japanese voice acting, but will also include English voice acting as well.
  • The reason why E2 Gaming no longer needed to turn to crowd-funding for their localisation is because they were awarded a grant by a subsidy of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry called JLOP.

 

Full Disclosure:> I’ve backed this campaign.

Developer Robert W. Amster launched a Kickstarter for his political satire otome visual novel, Grand Old Academy. At present, the campaign has raised $3,498 of its $13,500 funding goal by 133 backers with 24 days to go until it concludes. Windows and Mac users can try the demo, both of which are downloadable via the Kickstarter page.

 

The Kickstarter campaign of Maimie’s Toybox’s, Mindless Box has concluded. Unfortunately, it was not successful: They raised $776 out of their $4,500 goal by 59 backers.

 

Cybird have announced that Ikemen Sengoku◆Toki wo Kakeru Koi will be getting an anime adaptation. The details are scarce at this stage, but they plan on releasing it during 2017.

  1. I think I might as well just get Kenka since it’s going to be a LONG ass time rofl before we do get a localization-if at all.

    Would you say the language was difficult?

    As always, thank you so much for all the hard work and time that goes into these posts.

    • Yeah, there’s no guarantee a Kenka Bancho Otome localisation is actually happening at this stage.

      Did you mean for Taishou x Alice? If so, no, I don’t recall finding any parts of it particularly hard to read/follow. It’s certainly not on the “easy” side, but I wouldn’t put it on the “harder” end of the scale, either.

      You’re very welcome, Leaf! Thank you for reading and being so supportive! =)

  2. Well, after reading Elly’s post, I feel like a lot of it was information we had but some of it became less vague. Like now we know we get both English and Japanese voices, where they got the extra investment from (JLOP is pretty sweet, I wonder if other localization teams have applied for this?) and some other things so that’s nice to know about.

    On the other hand most of the information just makes me more wary??? I mean I’m still kinda annoyed about the way they handled the Otome Jikan bullshit (did they ever apologize?) and now that I’ve got more information I just… A December 2016 release date???? FOR FOUR GAMES????? WHAT. When did this game get announced again?? I want to say it was early this year? Maybe late last year??? December 2016 is just so close. If it gets pushed back I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Uhh and yeah who is the English cast. And only Facebook… what’s even the point of having the website then. Lol oh I don’t know maybe I’m just being unnecessarily harsh on them because of everything that happened before but I just… I’m so wary lol

    As usual thanks for all your hard work!!! \o/ This is like the only way I keep up to date now here in China… twitter is a hassle to access cus of the great firewall and sometimes my vpn poops out on me lol ;o;

    • Hello, Usagii!

      I definitely did hear about some of the information beforehand. Yeah, I can’t deny I’m concerned about some things, like the English voice acting. As Elly wrote, one can only cross their fingers and toes that it won’t turn out like Chaos Wars.

      I can’t deny that I’m still miffed at their complete lack of a formal apology to Otome Jikan, too. It goes to show that you can get away with blatant theft as long as your supporters are desperate for your products. =/ I really doubt all four games will be out even by the very end of December! Translating takes time and effort (if you want to make it decent, at least)…

      Don’t worry, I feel like I’m one of the few people who still openly diss E2 Gaming. I don’t think you’re being harsh at all- they’ve done so many dodgy things they didn’t even apologise for that they can’t blame anybody for being wary of them.

      You’re very welcome, as always! =) Hope you’re having a good time in China!

  3. MissxQueen

    Kalmia8’s ‘Scarlet’ looks so good, so i’m guessing there are two Heroine’s like in Jooubachi No Oubou?

    • Greetings, Your Majesty! ;P

      The game is called “Les Grande Odelisque” and the brand developing the game is called Kalmia Scarlet. Kalmia Scarlet is the sister brand of Kalmia8 that will be producing longer, fully-priced games. Just thought I ought to clear this up!

      It does seem like there will be two protagonists, doesn’t it? Since Kalmia Scarlet will release full games, I don’t think we’ll be getting a game for each protagonist like with Jooubachi no Oubou (unless they’d both be full game-length splits, which I doubt).

      Thanks for reading!

Don't be shy, leave a reply!
