[Epitanime 2012] Ryukishi07′s conference transcriptions

Hey there everyone! I guess I shouldn’t make any more excuses, but well I guess I will keep posting special posts such like about events like I did starting 2 years ago (although having a once per year update is quite sad in retrospect).
Anyway, as the title suggest, this entry will cover the conferences held at Epitanime (France, 25-27 may 2012), with Ryukishi07 as the guest of honor. I decide to stick with the transcription alone, as I had an uncommon status during the convention, so I was helping the staff almost full time, so I unfortunately couldn’t exactly take part of the convention activities, check what the booth had at their disposal, nor even taking few pictures, so it would be a lump of text with just description of what I did with Ryukishi07 and the staff (well, unless you REALLY want to know about the boring stuff, but heh unlikely).
Anyway, considering the staff had set a conference for both Saturday and Sunday, we simply focused each of them on Higurashi and Umineko respectively.

[Note for french readers/Note pour les lecteurs français]: Salut tout le monde! Bon, je sais que je ne dois plus vraiment chercher d’excuses à ce sujet, donc je pense que je vais simplement continuer à faire des billets spéciaux sur des événements dont j’ai pu participé (même si une mise à jour par an est assez triste quand on y pense).
Bien, comme le titre le suggère, ce billet va passer en revu les conférences tenues à l’Epitanime (France, 25-27 mai 2012), avec Ryukishi en tant qu’invité d’honneur. J’ai décidé de limiter cet article sur les transcriptions uniquement, vu que j’avais une position assez différente durant la convention, en aidant le staff presque durant tout le temps de la convention, donc je n’ai malheuresement pas pu participer aux activités de la conventions, passer en revu les stands et les marchandises dont ils disposaient, et je n’ai pu faire que très peu de photo, donc à ce rythme, ca aurait été un bloc de texte avec juste des descriptions de ce que j’ai fait avec Ryukishi07 et le staff (sauf si vous voulez VRAIMENT savoir ce qu’on a fait, pas specialement excitant).
Enfin donc, vu que le staff avait prevu une conference pour Samedi ET Dimanche, nous avons focalisé le theme de chacune de celles ci sur Higurashi et Umineko respectivement.
Si vous voulez passer directement sur la partie francaises, après le dash, faites CTRL+F, avec “frmode” (sans les guillemets).

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Translation Patch: new release, Episode 4 complete!

Originally, we announced we wouldn’t be able to work on it until June, and most of you all were resigned to wait for a August/September release. Then we announced all of a sudden that we would go ahead with a full patch before the end of June.
Well well… betraying your expectations is what we want, so long it is in the good way of course!

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are set!

Witch Hunt is proud to announce that the new patch for Umineko no Naku Koro ni is available!

車輪の国、向日葵の少女 – Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo – Country of Wheel, Girl of Sunflower

It was quite a chore to have proper good VN to read recently. Aside of Fortune Arterial and G senjou no Maou (and your mandatory Key fix, Little Busters! EX), there wasn’t anything that stellar recently (I’m so stuck in Hoshiuta for some reason… Aoyama Yukari perhaps…? OTZ).
So, thinking back how I enjoyed G Senjou that much, I thought giving a try to its old predecessor might be a nice experience (especially how it is considered as a classic on 2ch, and how Touka gave me an enormous description before).

And certainly, I wasn’t disappointed at all. So here comes a serious wall of text for a gem of the past, 車輪の国、向日葵の少女 (Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo – Country of Wheel, Girl of Sunflower), by Akabeisoft2.

Fortune Arterial – a luxorious school, student council and … vampires.

A high class highschool on a remote island, fated reunions, new encounters and a touch of vampire mystery. I guess that about sums up the basic premise of Fortune Arterial in one sentence. Obviously sounds like the usual formula we have seen done to death a dozen times, but, what do you know – this one is done right. Having heard plenty of good references about the title i decided to finally sit down and give it a go myself, and the end result is a very pleasant surprise. I am not one to easily hand out praise, but when the credits of the True End started to roll, i was willing to stand up and applaud the writers for a rather exemplary piece of writing. The way all the individual story paths came together in the end, the way all the details fell in to place and the fact they actually explored aspects that are usually taken for granted in vampire stories, such as bloodlust and reasons behind it, as well as other relevant aspects, and the very origins of said vampires – things i had long since given up on in vampire stories, makes Fortune Arterial one of (if not THE) my favorite pieces of vampire fictions up to date.
