This here concerns my plans for a translation of a game called “The training school for final bosses” (らすぼす養分はいすくーる). A game that I gained interest in, as it was a game that has recently received lots of positive reviews. It is an RPG about a girl who goes to a school that trains people to become the next dark lord.
I don’t know how far in the future I will be translating this game yet, but for now, here is a link to the download for the Japanese version:
nao (Season of Twilight) annnounced on twitter the completion of chapter 2 with the “most important scene” in the game. nao has also said that this might be the scene that will leave the greatest impression on the player in Paranormal Syndrome 2. nao made this scene with great self-confidence, and hopes to make it public soon.

Though inadvertently delayed for about a month, it’s now completed!
Title: UTOPIA Fantasy Horror Adventure

Requires RPG Maker VX RTP
This recent game here has been quite well-regarded, and hearing it talked about in a live stream by Buriki Clock as one of the “great games to come out recently” certainly gave great motivation to get this translation completed. Note that though it has “horror” in its title, the horror content is somewhat light, so it should be okay to play even if you’re not all that good with horror.
Additional note: Akane’s last name was never stated in-game but it is “Ninomiya” (二ノ宮).
It should be noted that I haven’t checked through things 100%, so there may be the chance I accidentally left something untranslated. If you ever find such a thing, please do report it to me.
Now after this, I’ll be working on Buriki Clock’s newest work, Fantasy Maiden’s Odd Hideout before going on to Little Red Riding Hood’s Wolf.
(I might also consider translating Shintaro’s earlier games sometime in the future, although they are of a somewhat different flavor.)
Though I was thinking of translating this sometime, it turns out that someone else translated this while I was unaware, until someone recently notified me about it. I feel really glad that there are more people now translating games like these!

Back around 2009, Doraemon: Nobita’s Biohazard by aaa was one of the “three big” RPG Maker horror games going around Nicovideo (the other two were Ao Oni and Yume Nikki), perhaps at least in part due to the famous Let’s Plays by Fuhiki and Gami, who were the most famous Let’s Players in Japan before they retired (at least while using their old names). And now (well, several months ago), it’s finally translated!
There’s also some very well-known mods of this game that seem very much worth looking forward to as well.
I gladly welcome anyone who wishes to be a proofreader or editor of these translations. Methods of contact include email (can be found from blogspot), skype, or IRC. I am usually present on the channel #towelket on irc.rizon.net
After going through Forest of Drizzling Rain one more time, I also intend to edit it once again. It is true that sometimes when I read what I have previously written, I think to myself a lot “this doesn’t quite sound right.” Well it was a rushed translation, so I guess a proofreading is in order.
I’ve been recently informed that Mikoto Nikki, the first in Charon’s series of yandere horror games, has recenly been translated by Terriball, a user at /jp/ (link to /jp/ thread—caution, this link will probably be dead within a month or two!)
I’ve been planning on doing this translation myself for some time, but I guess someone else got to it first. Well, good for all of us, I guess.

As stated previously, Himuro Hitoshi will be the main character. Characters from the previous game Paranormal Syndrome will appear.
Perhaps a more useful post this time…
Edit September 3: Summary here.
I think what is missing in this Western culture is an “independent culture.” We do have a little of that, but not enough. That is why I have a great desire to call people from around me to create events like Comiket in Japan, in order to start an “independent culture.”
That is why I say even now, if there is anybody around the Boston, Cleveland, or New York City areas and are interested in this idea of having meet-ups to start this “independent culture,” that would be the thing I would be most happy about.
