Tsujidou-san no Jun'Ai Road Translation project announced! The birth of CloverRibbon Translation group?

So there has been a special project in the works for about a few months now. I'm starting a translation of the Visual Novel, Tsujidou-san no Jun'Ai Road by MinatoCarnival.  It's taken me a while to grab funding for a website, buying a game and dong research on legal course of action should anything go wrong. Currently I'm looking for programmers in python and translators.  I'll be the one funding the project and doing over all grammar and translation checks.

The project will be done over a multitude of programs. TeamViewer, and Skype will be used in conjunction to help manage this project, TeamViewer to provide screen sharing or remote desktop connection so work flow is easier. TeamViewer has a built in system to allow voice chat. However it does not do group calls. Skype will be used for group voice chat.

If you don't know how to get the programs just follow the hyperlinks above.

If anyone is interested in this project, please contact me at  After I am notified by email, I'll hand over my Skype user name and we'll discuss the project over chat.  Project work days will be Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.  I will usually be online for 12:00pm Pacific/1PM mountain/2PM central/3pm Eastern Time zone (US Time Zones).

Projects updates and actual patches will all be released on a separate site CloverRibbon Translations. The site is still in construction, so for now update posts will be labeled here.

Hopefully this project will get off the ground and start a nice translation group. Other translation projects that I hope to translate some day are:

Shining Resonance PS3 Game's Story, Characters Revealed

     Gaming news website Inside Games revealed details on Sega's upcoming Shining Resonance game for PlayStation 3 on Tuesday. The game is slated to ship in Japan on December 11, 2014 for 8,222 yen (about US$80), and a limited edition will also ship for 16,800 yen (US$164).

    The story takes place in a land of the gods known as Alfheim. The once proud race of dragons are ruined, and their souls are crystallized and scattered across the world. One day, a dragon named Kōryū Irvan is discovered, and dragon slayers from the imperial army and church set out to find him.

    A girl saves the dragon from the dragon slayers and they soon collect "Dragonars," or warriors that play musical instruments called "Armonics" that resonate with the dragon's soul. The characters include:

Kōryū Irvan, the dragon and the game's protagonist. 
Kōryū Irvan, the dragon and the game's protagonist. 

Kirika Towa Aruma, the other heroine, and a girl who inherited an ancient song. 

Agunamu Brethart, a hot-blooded man who wields fire.  

Georg Zalbart, leader of the church's elite forces.
    Another main character has yet to be introduced.

   The player will command a party of four to battle various enemies, including rival artificial dragons created by the empire (pictured below). Billed as a "Dragon and Musical Instrument" game, Shining Resonance will feature seamless transitions from field to battle sequences.
   Tony Taka will return to the Shining series as the character designer along with Tsuyoshi Sawada as the game's producer.
  Sega launched its Shining game franchise with Shining in the Darkness in 1991, and the latest games, Shining Blade and Shining Ark, shipped for the PSP in 2012 and 2013. One of the role-playing games, Shining Hearts, inspired the Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan- television

Clara: ClariS Will Not Disband

Singer Gero interviews musical duet member after Alice left the group earlier this month

        Singer Gero (Brothers Conflict) interviewed Clara of the musical duo ClariS on the Japanese television program Mezamashi TV on Sunday. During the interview, Clara announced that although the second member of ClariS Alice has left the group, the unit ClariS has not ended. She explained that the unit ClariS will continue to work to convey its feeling of gratitude to fans. She told Gero that Alice made the decision to “graduate” from ClariS after giving it a lot of thought, and Clara decided to cheer her on.

You can check out the video below.

       In addition, Clara revealed that while she is a third-year high school student, no one in school knows that she is part of the musical duo. When a ClariS song plays on the school's speakers, she gets excited in her head and wants to sing. Clara added that she first met Alice in first grade at the music school the two attended. The two often go out together, eating dinner or taking purikura ('Print Club' photo sheets or stickers) together.

     Alice of the ClariS duo announced her graduation from the unit to focus on her studies at the end of last month, and formally left the unit on June 4 when their PARTY TIME album was released in Japan. The album reached the number two spot on the Oricon's weekly charts.
The duo ClariS debuted in 2010 as middle-schoolers with their single "irony," which served as the opening theme to the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai TV anime. From there, they performed the theme songs for the Puella Magi Madoka Magica TV anime and films, as well as the themes for Moyashimon Returns and Nisemonogatari. ClariS also performed the theme song for the Akiba's Trip PlayStation Portable game. Most recently, the duo provided two theme songs for the Nisekoi anime.

     The duo has made one live performance, but they were only visible as silhouettes behind a curtain to their fans during the concert. Instead, ClariS is normally illustrated as anime characters by various artists, including Akio Watanabe, Ume Aoki, and Hiro Kanzaki. Alice is portrayed in the color blue, while Clara is represented by the color pink.

Sailor Moon Crystal Trailer now available to public!

Whether or not you are an anime fan, most people growing up in the 90s up to today have heard of Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon, or better known in Japan as "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon" was published in manga magazine Nakayoshi from the February 1992 issue to the March 1997 issue, with the 52 chapters published into 18 and later 12 tankōbon volumes by Kodansha. The manga then was made in to an anime by Totei Animation and was broadcasted from 1992 to 1997. America got it's version in 1995.

Since those times Sailor Moon has become a world wide icon for young girls and any other anime fan out there. Now in 2014, we are seeing a reboot of Sailor Moon in the form of Sailor Moon Crystal. Artwork has been revamped. Returning for her role as Usagi/Princess Serenity/Sailor Moon is Kotono Mishuishi. Sadly, the rest of the cast has been been replaced below is the line up of the roles. The new cast are all high profile and famous voice actors but are fairly young, aside from Kotono Mishuishi. The list is below.

Ami Koshimizu as Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter
Hisako Kanemoto as Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury
Rina Satou as Rei Hino/Sailor Mars
Shizuka Itou as Minako Aino/Sailor Venus

Kenji Nojima as Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Kamen

 The official website for the upcoming Sailor Moon Crystal anime began streaming a trailer for the series this Friday. The video features the theme song "Moon Pride" performed by Momoiro Clover Z and composed by Revo of Linked Horizon (Attack on Titan opening themes). Akiko Kosaka, who composed the first anime's ending theme "Tuxedo Mirage" will also compose the new show's ending theme, "Tsuki Niji" (Moon Rainbow) also performed by Momoiro Clover Z.


With everything that that trailer now presents, hopefully this reboot will turn out alright. All you fangirls and fanboys out there, eat your heart out!

Impressions of Spiderman 2 and Godzilla

I went out and saw "The Amazing Spiderman 2" and "Godzilla" recently and I'll have to say I'm impressed. The movie I'm impressed with the most is Godzilla of course. But these movies were excellent in my opinion.  If you want to see my full impression of the movie check out the YouTube video below.

"Shining Resonance" RPG is in the Works for PS3

    For all of you Tony Taka fans, it was confirmed in this week's issue of Japanese gamers magazine, Famitsu, that Wild Arms developer, Media Vision is actually in middle of development of a newShining RPG called Shining Resonance.
   While Tony Taka returns to do character designs, the actual models will be done by Flight Unit.

      Other details about the game reveal a character named Kirika Towa Alma, a girl who inherits the ancient song. "I'm sorry, but I have no interest in humans," she says. "I only want to understand the heart of the dragon." Kirika is a Song Maiden class who uses a Dragon Wing Bow and Sacred Magic, and is a better healer than a fighter.

    While there is little info on what the Shining Resonance game is going to be about, it seems the transitions between field and battles will be seamless.

Unboxing: Steins;Gate Visual Novel by JAST. Limited Edition.

So JAST has finally put out the limited edition box set of Steins;Gate the Visual Novel for PC. Unfortunately this game did not come with Nitro+'s cosplay patch. You may have to find that yourself. The game is awesome.

Here is the unboxing video

Now I'm going to be serious. People have been uploading JAST's version of Steins;Gate up on the internet for illegal downloading. I highly advise against this. Please support the company by buying this game so we can get a localized version of the games Chaos;Head, Robotic;Notes and the up and coming game called Chaos;Child. Piracy will not help bring over the other sci-fi games to the west.

You can order Steins;Gate in the link below.
