A Good Day to Dracu-Riot (Status Update 5)

As some of you may have already seen, Sekai Project just announced at Anime Expo today that they’ve licensed and will release Dracu-Riot (as well as Senren Banka!). So here’s the low-down: they have been in contact with us recently, and have expressed interest in using our work. We haven’t actually signed a deal yet, but we have no reason to refuse if they’re asking for our help.

So yep, we’re going official. What does that mean?

  • No more patch releases, of course.
  • As with most fan translations gone official, this means that it will probably take a little longer to release, but hopefully not too much longer.
  • It will be of a higher level of quality than if it was to remain a fan translation.
  • You will still get your porn; they announced an 18+ version as well. I haven’t spent all that time recently transcribing moans and sound effects for nothing!

I understand many of you will feel jilted, and I understand that. However, for us, we are immensely proud of the work we’ve been putting into this project. What started as an ill-conceived attempt to hurriedly poop out a complete DR patch based on Insem’s earlier work has turned into a far more serious project. We have been completely overhauling the translation in order to make it something befitting of this hilarious and amazing moege. To me, it’s only fitting that we now take this project to the next level, to the stage it belongs on.

I imagine most status updates will now come from Sekai Project, so we won’t use this blog for Dracu-Riot much anymore. Thank you to all who have shown their support thus far.

      I really don’t know how SP plans on selling this, but I will say that I don’t think any localization company has done this before.

    Hohoho! I can’t wait to see your shit talk on others work on VN come back at ya. Don’t fail me Decay! I had a suspicion that you was full of it ever since https://theoxfordcommaissuperiorsubs.com/2016/11/12/dracu-riot-status-update-with-a-vengeance/#comment-1488 I also do not appreciate round-about bullshit talk that you was working on this while behind making backroom deals with steam whores for casuals over at Sekai. I can’t stand people who are not forthright but dangle the bait instead. Who cares about integrity these days, right? I’d have no issue if that was the case but that wasn’t route wasn’t chosen. I’m positive you won’t be the last one.

      You know, I never really understood your “jaded edit” comment. What’s a “jaded” edit? What makes that different from other edits? How does my editing qualify?

      It’s been a lot of work, so I do hope it pays off and you and everyone else enjoys it. It’s been challenging but fun, and I’ve learned a lot from the experience, so I’ll be happy no matter what the outcome. 🙂

      When it comes to VN translation, I think it’s interesting and fun to talk about what works and what doesn’t. We can just say “it’s good” or “it’s not good” and leave it at that, but that’s boring. I respect a few of the people behind some of the translations I’ve discussed before, and some of them are clearly more talented than me, but I don’t think that should disqualify one from engaging in a discussion. We should all be free to discuss what we do and don’t like in translation. You’re free to do the same with the SP Dracu-Riot release, of course. It’ll be interesting to see what everyone thinks of it.
