奇跡の魔女So, I've been hearing a lot of hype about this VN recently. Anyone here play it yet? If so, how is it? I'll probably start reading it alongside Kamidori. Oh, and feel free to post updates on the translation here. From what I saw, four out of six routes are translated.
つ ◕_◕ ༽つ HELIXI've seen the anime. Generic fanservice stuff. Not quite interested in the VN but I'll check it out once translation's finished.

奇跡の魔女It scored pretty high on vndb (8.59), plus no day goes by on the visual novels general on /vg/ without anyone talking about it. Granted, it's 4chan, but that's pretty impressive, I think.
Regarding this very wiki, I do sort of point out that while it did have an decently sized page, it was pretty much not crosswicked at all. I've done that for the main, but not the subpages. It also needs a bit of cleaning, as I noticed a few misplaced tropes and stubs tossed in as speculation for the anime while that was running.Why is it in past tense? The page still exists. Regarding the anime, I think there's no surprise that it would turn out to be shit. Most VN adaptations end up like that anyway.

Butt Monkey in the VN. Can't have that in an anime, no sire. Momoyo also suffered some degradation on her major character trait, honesty. The anime did have a little more fun with Miyaki's hot sauce preferences, though. Also, it's still a relatively good anime if you like the genre.
つ ◕_◕ ༽つ HELIXMost of the time, anime can't fit the important content because V Ns are so long. It's like adapting a book into a film.
I need a break from games and stuff so I'm going to pick this up now. Five routes are out, apparently, so I might as well. And apparently you can get raped by some guy if you make the 'correct' decisions. Debating whether or not I want to see that. I probably will. Hm, Ageha. They Are My Noblemasters Ageha, that is. First impression: I don't like the art and I don't like the effects. First heroine introduced seems like she might be funny, second looks kinda okay and the third has breasts so large that I expect her to float away. It's really distracting and not in a good way. On the bright side, Norio Wakamoto voices the Prime Minister.

I'll get used to the art pretty soon. It's possibly more jarring than it would have been since I just finished Hoshizora where everyone apart from the twins is pretty flat chested. Actually, it's mostly noticeable when you see them from the side. Usami voices the announcements and I am having a really hard time not thinking of Tensshin as Yamamoto Genryusei or whatever his name is.
SHUFFLE! VN to the anime, but that's probably off topic.
I've read all the translated bits so far. I'm looking forward to the Miyako route, I really like her character. The action scenes are fun and varied. I like seeing how they end up matching opponents against each other in the different routes, and the competitions they come up with.
I have no idea.
Tomoya. On the other hand, I really don't share Yamato's tastes.

His tastes? Personally, I'm interested in the fact that he's a blatant cheater. Miyako seems like she's probably destined to annoy me during the actual heroine routes but for the moment she's kinda amusing. I find it weird that Miyucchi is apparently voiced by Ririko. Talk about jarring contrast between roles.
Law Abiding Rebel (a.k.a. borderline dropout and overall loser), but an actual cheater. That's what I liked about Miyako. She isn't annoying in the other routes. The issue comes up, but isn't overshadowing the rest of the story.

Hm, more Kimi Aru references, though Miyu didn't actually appear onscreen. It makes me regret that I'm unlikely to see that one translated since the anime really made me feel that the VN was much better. Sort of like how I feel that the Majikoi anime probably focused on really shallow aspects of the story and ended up crap.

So I guessed right? And I was right because they skipped all the actual story content? Why would you do that? Oh, so I guess Tesshin is as much of a Genryusei expy as he looks. His appearance was really obvious but the whole 'shoot and reduce all creation to ash' thing kinda sealed the deal.

Eh? That's an odd place for an ending. Momoyo's route ends with the hookup? They kiss on the riverbank and that's it?
Well, it was quite an ordeal just trying to get her to go out with him in the first place.
I have no idea.
But still we don't see their relationship, the thing with Capt comes up and vanishes again pretty much instantly and there wasn't even an H scene.
the H-scenes. I don't tend to like those, but this time I actually did, or at least the first part, before it became too ridiculous. At any rate, it's one of those that's about the journey, not the goal. They're not likely to act much differently anyway, other than slightly more affectionately. And it's not like they've not been on any dates at al.
I'm not interested in the H scenes it was just a mark of how incomplete it felt to me. Mayucchi next. Almost went for Chris but eh, pass for now. She's a bit too much of a stock character for me to be interested right now.
