  2. anon says:

    Could someone describe the gameplay?

    • meh says:

      the game is split in 3 games, the main game as a visual novel, then 3 bonus mini novels and at last a (SNES look alike) turn based strategy game thats not translated

      • anon says:

        Appreciated. Don’t think I’m really interested, then.

        Is another kamidori too much to ask for?:'(

        • Veron says:

          Apparently so. Kamidori actually has similar titles made by the same company that are huge and IMO as well done as Kamidori. But jus like Kamidori the fact they are so huge makes it an incredible chore for translators to tackle them. If western companies were interested in bringing them over it would be far easier (they would have more time and resources) but it’s doubtful seeing as it’s unlikely the games would sell enough to recover the investment needed.

          You’re turning down a side story of the Muv-Luv’s Extra universe because of how little this thing has? For shame!

        • harhar says:

  4. thatsA1st says:

    this isn’t in english

    or have i missed something?

  5. thatsA1st says:

    forgot the bloody patch

    6am and my reading is obviously impaired

  6. allstarsniper32 says:

    Images? Imma have to install this? I’ve gotten too used to extract and play method. I’m also getting errors and I don’t know what they say since nothing’s translated…am I going to have to change region settings? I found that if I just click ok and yes a bunch of times it does install but something happens at 100% and it doesn’t finish the installation.

    Is there any plans to release this as not an image? Although I feel that if that was an option you would have done it already…sigh, the girl with the orangeish twin tails looks so good too…

    Now if only you included the TL patch or its link in the release it would be nice

    This is part of Muv Luv universe? THink there was a anime called Akane manix wich ended just before the VN began storrywise.

    Dear Admin,

    I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to you, for this Project. Over the years, I have bought several Japanese VNs, and I was always amazed at the outrageous pricing, Ex: Crysis II was cheaper than a 2 hour VN.

    You have given us VN Junkies a way to preview VNs, before we spend our hard earned money, so thank you.

    I have purchased several of the games I’ve preview here, ex: School Days, Deardrops, and the one about Building a gluider. I don’t recall the name of that one, but it was EPIC.

    Again, Thanks for your help.

    I Also, Kana Little Sister.
    Is this new version you list substantially different? I know the Original made me cry so hard, I haven’t been able to revisit it. Probably the most heartwrenching story ever. It was both joyous and painfully sad.

    As an aside, the current captcha is “hit the sack”. So at 5:18 am, it’s probably wise advice !

    I’m trying to copy the English patch and it keeps saying that there is no for it in the folders. Did i install it wrong or something? The game itself runs fine, just no English.

  12. Loki says:

    I don’t understand how I am supposed to play. Is there something other than the files that I need downloaded, there is no application type file.. just HARUKOMANIAX.mdf and HARUKOMANIAX.mds

    • admin says:

      Those are disc image files. See FAQ for information how to handle them.

      • Loki says:

        Thank you, but now if you could please explain what I do from there, with the translations file.. I dunno what am doing, I apologize for inconveniencing you..

        • admin says:

          Okay, let’s get started in the beginning…
          Before digital distribution platforms, like Steam, when you bought a game, you had to put the disc into drive (or, “mount” snapshot of such disc if you downloaded it, as it is the case here) and install the game. Setup process is in Japanese, but it’s pretty straightforward – just click Next,Next,Next… (note that this game requires Japanese locale to recognize characters properly. Again, refer to site’s FAQ for instructions.). After you installed the game, open the folder and drag the files from English patch there, overwriting them. There, done.

  13. Loki says:

    I can get the game running but an error message pops up but It’s just a bunch of random characters so I don’t know what’s going on.

  14. Max says:

    please Help me
    i got error rUGP when start game

  15. Shun says:

    HELP!
    I’ve installed the game but I got an error instead everytime I try to run the game. http://imgur.com/30BxDzG

    I installed the game in normal way and put the english patch. I already set my laptop to japanese locale and using windows 8. Tried run as administrator and change the compability to windows 7, but still didn’t work. I can’t even read the error message since I don’t understand it 🙁

  16. Jakku says:

    I downloaded the game, mounted the image, started the setup with Japanese Locale and installed the game, then patched it and all was good until I tried to start it, an error message in japanese popped up and it said something about the game not being installed properly, any help?

  17. DeloreanFanatic says:

    I’ve put both files from the patch in the correct folders as laid out in the Readme, but everything is still in Japanese, anyone else?
