  1. aaand.. stopped at 88% lol. at least you could’ve picked Beat Blades Haruka On Hold instead of Rance 6. considering your translating progress it won’t take another year to finish.

    how long is teh waiting now? only god knows LOL

      • well, he could always partnering with any company that lets him to pick. mangagaymer’s certainly the shit that every people would love to avoid.

        but let’s not be too negative. since aru’s already deep in the mud, why don’t he take the Kara no Shoujo 2 to his translation next? screw rance 6. it’s destined to be screwed either way

  2. Come on people, don’t be so negative. I trust Aru’s judgement that we will get VI sooner or later. Sucks to wait but if you are a Rance fan you are probably used to it.

  3. Sengoku rance is too easy to find in english so i thing never get out(but doest matter) rance 5d and 6 too old i thing for interest mangagamer but maibe in the futur it will end like olest alice game free game and if this hapening i hope you give translation or remake will out (probabily) and for the “new” rance i hope they will be translate ( if it case i will have this )

  4. If they were to focus on newer Rance games, we would lose 5 and 6 but at least get something out of it, still be better than them deciding to just sit on the license while doing nothing with it, which sadly is probably more likely. Sengoku Rance translation is unnecessary anyway because there already is one out, so who would pay 50-70$, which is the normal mangagamer price for new translations, for a game that had a free patch available for so many years?

    • Sekai Project customers.

      Rance VI should be released because it’s the best untranslated Rance game and it’s absolutely vital to the overall plot of the series. I personally just don’t expect it before 2017

        • Just calculating things here but it seems unlikely that Haruka will be released before March 2016 at the earlier which could make a 2016 release possible but if Haruka gets pushed out to June or July or Alicesoft want a longer timeframe to see how it goes than a 2016 release seems unlikely.

          I obviously don’t know the editing process but I’d imagine now it’s professional it would have to be more thorough and thus time consuming.

  5. A quote from Maria. As of 5th july 2015. “It may also be worth noting that Arunaru has been aware of the plan as well for some time. Obviously he was hoping we’d be able to release VI sooner rather than later, but it’s not like we blindsided him with the news two weeks ago or whatever.”
    So now who is lying? You or Maria? Well it doesn’t really matter, Maria said she NEVER intended to release any Rance game that is not freeware so the 2.0 team claimed 5 and 6 for years while lying trough their teeth the whole time about the progress so no free translator would work on the game, just to maybe make a few bucks off it in the future.
    There is just no way anyone can trust Maria anymore, she threw any credibility out of the window and you did not keep your word either, but at least you did not screw us out of pure greed like Maria. Still, you really were naive enough to think their first release would be such an old game, number 6 in a bigger series no less? We can call ourselves lucky if they intend to release Rance 6 at all, it is more likely for them to start with the 01 remake, go from 1-4 and remake 5 and 6 as well in a few years.

    There was simply no better time to learn japanese, or put up with a crappy machine translation so you at least can play the game at some point.

    • I asked about the possibility of releasing Rance VI several times and was told they would do it. Guess I was dumb for thinking they’d try to release a nearly complete project that’s been anticipated rather than shutting it down and creating bad will, but oh well. I’ve made it perfectly clear to them I’m not happy about it, and I’m not planning to translate another nukige following this one, so either they’ll get something I want or I’m out.

      Yes, I’ve known they were going to try and partner with Alicesoft since right around when I began the Rance VI project. Nobody had any way of knowing if or when they would actually succeed at this, so I decided to keep working on it rather than just give up. It was only two or three weeks ago that they actually succeeded at partnering with Alicesoft and licensing Haruka. If Maria always planned to try and release those games officially I have no idea why she wouldn’t have just said that, but it’s not like I’m happy to have put all this work into this game I love only for it to have to be set aside now, and I would’ve much rather talked about everything were I not contractually obligated not to. But this is what’s happened and I’ve accepted it, you can either accept it too or keep whining about it on the internet to accomplish nothing. Not sure what word it is I didn’t keep either.

      The fact of the matter is that Rance VI (and I guess 5D? You should hardly be that upset about losing that game though) aside this isn’t slowing down the release of anything, I don’t know what delusional universe you live in but I’m the only one who was really translating anything at a reasonable rate and if not for this I wasn’t going to be able to continue for much longer. If you actually want to see more recent Alicesoft games ever getting translated then this is the best way for it to happen, and Rance is certainly not what you should be worried about not getting released. If you want to mourn the death of anything it’s the late-90’s-early 2000’s games that aren’t freeware but can’t be feasibly put out. I can also tell you this idea that they’re going to try and force the games to be released in some chronological order isn’t based in any sort of reality. Alicesoft would sooner release older games than newer ones regardless of what position they occupy in a series, that’s not a concern to anyone.

      • RIP Daiakuji, Atlach Nacha. I’m guessing Pastel Chime/GalZoo are too dated these days too to be worth localizing.

        All in all I think this might still be a good thing though. It’s a shame the Rance VI situation isn’t working out quite as planned, but in the long run things will hopefully work out much smoother as a result of this partnership.

        • We’re pushing for Galzoo, it runs in the same resolution as Haruka so I don’t see why not. Pastel Chime 1 definitely isn’t happening, Pastel Chime Continue I guess maybe, but none of us really know that game. I’ve got a copy of it here but I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve barely been able to play the new FE.
