Therefore, I and the team would like to ask all of you who have been supporting us to help make this Kickstarter a success! Once this KS is successful, we can expect to see much more of the franchise, media and goods become available in the official international language, which makes this event an important turning point for the franchise.

I cannot stress how important it is that you and us, the community, the fan-base, help make this KS take off. I hope those of you who are able to help contribute to this undertaking do so, and those who are not, please help to spread the word, to people who like VNs, Sci-fi, Military fiction, Anime, Manga, anyone whom you think will be interested.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien Project Teaser

Tags

A little surprise for our KimiNozo fans out there, to celebrate the completion of the rough draft for First Chapter. Keep in mind that all of the dialogue is an unedited first draft, and none of what you see has been finalized whatsoever.

That being said, I know that a lot of people are skeptical about this project, considering the number of attempts to translate it that have been made in the past. So, I wanted to give you a tiny taste of how things are coming along, just to show that we mean business here.

We’ll have more to share with you soon, so please look forward to it.

This patch includes full translations for both the main story, as well as the three Muv-Luv Radio Mini-Drama ADV side-stories – it does not, however, translate the few lines of dialogue in the Faraway Dawn Part 2 mini-game.

Hi folks, Alternative Projects + Aalt presents: ARG Test Cast #T02 – Sitting down with Degica.

This week, it is my great pleasure to welcome Jason and Mitch from Degica in our #2 Podcast!

KimiNozo Guy contacted them a few weeks ago and they were extremely enthusiastic about joining us in our cast to share some good news about what we can expect in the localisation.

In this cast,  we will cover several questions about Degica’s background and achievements, how they got to start the Muv-Luv kickstarter project with Ixtl, and also, Mitch and Jason will answer some of the questions going around the community regarding the localization itself, providing what information they can. This podcast has been vetted by Ixtl as well, thus the delay in the release.

I’m also pleased to include the winners of the Giveway Degica ran at their site in this podcast, and there’s a new contest being launched as well, so keep listening to the very end!

The song at the end is Arranged version of Storm Vanguard.

Thanks for listening to us! Below are some rules for the trivia at the end of the cast:

Rules for the trivia competition; Tweet your answer to @muvluvseries on Twitter in order to enter the contest. The duration of the competition is one week. Good luck to all the contestants!
