- English speaking fans stepped up and started releasing more content. In addition to RE: Alistair, there was the second Fantasia Otome Game Series entry (Requiem of the Abyss), Frozen Essence, Date Warp, Memoirs of an Angel (currently in demo form), and Castle Chase. On the Lemma Soft forums, a new category was created for "G x B" games, so there's plenty more games and visual novels in the works there. Hopefully a good number of these indie/freeware games will be completed.
- Fan translators are releasing some impressive content. The fan translation of Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side for the Nintendo DS started in spring 2010, and the final English patch was released a few weeks ago. An anonymous group released a full translation of Starry Sky in Spring. There's a number of other translations which are making progress, and which will hopefully be finished.
- There's been loose talk about professional translations of one of Idea Factory's visual novels for some time. In fall 2010, Aksys Games created two surveys about potential otome games in English. We shall see if any major announcements are made in 2011.
