So I’ve actually tallied up the titles mentioned at the License Request thread on our forums.
As you may know, it’s tough to acquire a new license, especially when our line up is still this small. But you never know what can happen in the scene of business! Like who would of thought that mainstream Hentai games visual novels would be available in English 10 years ago?
So I ask you again, which game developers and titles do you want us to go for? We will do what we can, and we might even be able to use this post as a valuable tool in negotiations; “Hey, look! Your game is getting this many votes!”
For those of you who don’t know any titles out there, you can participate by seconding other people’s votes, including what was already mentioned, or make a constructive suggestion such as “A newer title, rather than an older classic!” or “Something with story, rather than sex!”.
According to the requests we’ve received so far, the results are as follows:
Top 10 Titles
1. SHUFFLE! Essence+ (Navel)
2. MAI-Hime -Unmei no Keitoujyu- (CIRCUS)
3. Gore Screaming Show (BlackCyc)
4. Phantom of Inferno PC version (Nitroplus)
5. CLANNAD (Visual Arts/Key)
6. Kara no Shoujo (Innocent Grey)
7. Kanon (Visual Arts/Key)
8. AIR (Visual Arts/Key)
9. 11eyes (Lass)
10. School Days (Overflow)
By the way, I know people are probably thinking this already, so I will give you my honest comments now.
-“But with their poor translations, I don’t want MangaGamer to acquire our favorite games…”
Have you played our latest releases such as Soul Link and Higurashi Meakashi-hen? Objectively speaking, our releases have been improving with every release. Although we can’t suddenly stop our old translation line and sometimes a translation has already started over half a year before its release for certain titles, we are taking much more time in editing and proofreading than we did before. Because our resources are limited right now, we are putting more emphasis where it’s needed, but changes are steadily being made. By the time we acquire a new title, I can assure you that our quality will be totally different.
