After leaving us hanging for a day after posting a very mysterious phrase, Aaeru came out with some rather shocking news:
“Attention Fan Translators! Do NOT sell your translation to JAST USA! We have a much Greater Cause in Sight >Visual Novels for the whole world. Visit Fuwanovel.com”
It’s a very interesting concept that’s sure to be controversial, and while I think that it can be great, I don’t see much of a chance of this working as beautifully as Aaeru is hoping for. That said, I hold a bit of cautious optimism, not that everything will go well, but that the VN community isn’t going to explode and kill this project in the bud. From what I can see some of the comments are getting nasty already (this is despite what seems to be quite a bit of editing by the mods), but there are some very interesting and insightful comments into the state of the situation. Much of the arguments are about stuff that has been discussed before, but it would be really interesting to see the VN translation groups go down a different route than what’s happening in China right now.
