Whoops, kinda let Monday slip by without making an update post. I apologize. I feel like this month’s featured image is a more or less accurate representation of me throughout April. My new semester has begun in April, so I couldn’t really work on IroSeka unfortunately, but at the very least, I’m done with TLC now.
Anyhow, here’s the updated chart for SakuSaku. Click here to see the chart.
So I suppose you want to know what happens next and well, as the progress chart suggests, it’s time for QC/proofreading, which is really just having several people of our team (+ trusted others) read through the whole game to fix typos etc.
I know that you’re all eager to finally get to read the game, and I too want to get it out as soon as possible; I mean, the plan had been to be done by the end of last year… However, having gone that extra mile to thoroughly TLC everything definitely paid off. As I said before, it isn’t just about careless mistakes here and there, my TL style has changed so vastly since I started translating, it didn’t sit well with me to release something I know I wouldn’t do this way at present. Anyhow, we’re almost there.
Let’s move on to IroSeka… though, as I said, there’s been literally no progress. Click here to see the chart.
This is actually quite frustrating. Translating Chapter 3 was really fun. It has a major info dump with lots of intricate explanations and translating that kind of stuff is extremely engaging. The more challenging it is, the better you feel when you actually pull it off. That said, – if I do say so myself – the result is pretty awesome. So yeah, I was basically itching to move on to Chapter 4 this whole time… At any rate, hopefully I’ll get around to it this month. Fortunately, even in the worst-case scenario, I’ll finally be able to fully focus on IroSeka starting next month.

Since last month I don’t think there’s been a ton of progress. Apologies for no update this recent week, ST was apparently dragged off to China without prior notice… That sounds like fun. Anyways, if you hadn’t heard, a few weeks back FAVORITE finally announced the fandisk for AstralAir as well as a Vita version. The fandisk has no set release date yet, but the Vita version is slated to release this September. I’ll avoid talking about the fandisk information too much because ~spoilers~ but needless to say I’m pretty interested to see what they do with it based on the plot summary. One of the most interesting tidbits about the Vita announcement is that they say there’s “new scenarios” planned, and they list an entirely new 3rd writer, which makes me believe the “new scenarios” are actual added routes instead of bonus scenes (Hinata route plz). Well, anyways, that’s about it for this month.
Until next month~
