Hello to everyone in the English yuri community.
I’ve decided to join the translation project for Sono Hanabira 6.
The English release is being coordinated as a whole at yuriproject. Once I’ve completed translation of the text it will be in the capable hands of people such as AXYPB to modify the game code itself, using the excellent ArcTool by Proger_XP to embed the English text and dialog into the game. [Check this post for a full list of contributors to the project.]
I’m referring heavily to the Chinese translation of the game by jackcdx as well as reading the Japanese.
I’ll be releasing translations as they are done chapter by chapter into the yuriproject wiki so in the event that I drop this project for some reason anyone can pick up where I left off.
As the translation progresses I will be blogging about any interesting things I encounter. Check back to the homepage to see my new posts.
This episode has been worked on, on and off, by Kuchibiru and @fkeroge since last year. They’ve completed chapter 1 and 3 (out of 15) and also started work on several other chapters. After I took on this project on about 10th April 2012, I’ve so far reviewed and completed chapters 4 and 5 (which others had started work on). Chapter 2 will probably be completed tonight Hong Kong time–it will contain the first ecchi scene to be translated by me.
In case anybody reading this doesn’t know, Sono Hanabira 6 is a visual novel featuring yuri (girl on girl love) and depictions of lesbian sex. All the links above contain NSFW material and shouldn’t be explored by minors in jurisdictions where this is forbidden.
You may leave a comment below to ask questions about progress, cheer me on or be like Reo and shout at me to get it done already 😀
