Remember11 Translation Patch + Umineko EP8 News

October 12, 2010

No picture because too lazy to find a good picture of Remember11. And I haven’t read it yet so picture hunting might lead to spoilers or something.

Remember11 is an entry in the Infinity series, which includes other VN titles such as Ever17, Never7, and 12Riven and is produced by KID. Weird titles I know. None of the other titles have been translated other than Ever17, which received an official translation by Hirameki studios, which I now believe is defunct. Ever17 was a wonderful visual novel which gave me one of the hugest mindscrews I have ever received from any medium of entertainment, and that’s with me figuring out a good chunk of the plot before the ending. I’m hoping that Remember11 will give me a similar experience, although I hear that Remember11 has a crap ending while everything else is amazing. We’ll see.

Translation patch can be found on TLWiki.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni -The Ronde of the Witch and Reasoning- TGS Footage

September 18, 2010

Those effects. Those lip movements. THAT BURNED UP KINZO.


Also, I know I’ve been slow on music reviews (for the few of you that actually come to read them), but life has been extremely busy lately. Blame school. Anyways, I’ll try to get to some Shoujo Byou if I ever get the chance.


Alchemist’s Umineko Character Redesign 2

September 1, 2010

This brings a whole new meaning to “<All Siestas!, code red>! <Rock ‘n’ Roll>!!” I guess Alchemist wanted to make the Siestas into actual rockers and rollers. I have no idea why, but that’s the way they want to do things.

In terms of the character redesign, the new Siesta isn’t that drastic of a change from the original design like Ange, Jessica, Bernkastel(?), and Lambdadelta(?) was. The only real gripe I have with the new design is that Siesta 45 (that is 45, right >__>) looks a bit too manly there, even with the pink heart-shaped guitar. I know that the Siestas are the Royal Snipers for Heaven or something like that and that kind of position means that you’d have to look somewhat threatening, but I think Alchemist missed the part where they were bunny girls. Unless Siesta 45’s a trap, which wouldn’t really be too surprising in light of EP7 spoilers.


Alchemist’s Umineko Character Redesign

August 25, 2010

I…wait, what?

It appears that Alchemist will be redesigning the characters for their probable Umineko port, although these redesigns are pretty drastic. I presume that the two above are Ange and Jessica, due to their outfits and hair colors. Although for some reason Jessica has the twintails and Ange has the ponytail, instead of the other way around. I’m going out on a limb here and saying that the two from the last portrait are supposed to be Bernkastel and Lambdadelta, exactly how they resemble them, I have no idea.

Anyways, their new designs will take some getting used to, and I don’t even know if these designs will be reflected in the character sprites too, since portrait art and sprite art are vastly different in the original. Unless these portraits are CGs and all of Alchemist’s sprites will use this style, but that would be kind of creepy…


Possible Umineko Alchemist Port

August 18, 2010

Well Alchemist has put up a new page on their site about this, and from the looks of it, it appears that Alchemist will be making a port of Umineko. Or maybe, they’re doing a spinoff of Umineko, seeing as how the two characters (and the floating head thing) in the portrait are not in Umineko at all. Unless they do a total redesign of all the characters for some reason and that’s supposed to be Bernkastel and Lambdadelta or something. I kind of doubt it though. But it’s pretty obvious that their new project has something to do with Umineko, what with the obvious portrait style, the One-Winged Eagle behind the girl, and the fact that their new page practically screams Umineko. Oh well, we’ll see. And if this is a port, then there’ll be a delicious sprite patch to make rereading Umineko more worthwhile.
