The translation is looking really good, I can't wait until it comes out. Is there any more info on the nurse in the VN? As she seems to know a lot more about the yokai then she lets on.

The reason not many people are talking about Higanbana is because there really isn't much to talk about. It's a lot more straight forward then higurashi and Umineko.

Then I have no choice but to wait for the translation to understand what's happpening. It'll be better that way, so I won't be complaining.

I'm actually looking forward to talking about it once I finish reading it.

I'm almost done reading the VN. It takes me a while since my Japanese is pretty weak, but I've read these 3 stories.

I'm mostly going from memory, so I may leave out a few things...

Spoiler for The Tutelary God's Shrine:


That's all I'll do for now. I'll do the others later, if I feel like it.

Judging from what I personally know, this story is child's play compared to Hameln's Castanets.

It seems the even-numbered stories have some degree of a happy, if not bittersweet, endings, while the odd-numbered stories are where it gets really gritty. Of course, this only seems to apply to this installment, and we have no way of knowing about later games.

Yes, Hameln's Castanets is a really dark one. I didn't particularly like it, though. My favorite so far after reading the first 6 is definitely The Princess's Lie.

Well, so far this has been true, although you could argue that #2 was grittier than #3.

OK, well I reviewed this thread and have a couple little things to clear up on peoples' incomplete understanding of some of the stories.

Just began reading the first story in Higanbana. I really like the dark atmosphere it shows from the beginning, but... the various descriptions and narrator's thoughts just go on and on and on without any kind of dialogue for a long time. Ugh. I felt overwhelmed - I'm not yet very well versed in Japanese, sure (I'd rank myself a mid-N4 if we're talking JLPT), but I'm still under the impression that the first chapters of Higurashi and Umineko were much more straightforward and easy to follow. I don't think I have the willpower to sit straight and grind through this amount of psychological speech.

That aside, the soundtrack is beautiful (albeit I still have to hear it in-context) and the sound effects quite eerie, in a good sense. I guess I'll try reading bit by bit, slowly and carefully, because, at a first glance, Higanbana has got what it takes to make me enjoy the read.

Anyone has the "TIPs" text for the characters profile of Higanbana somewhere?
I'm having trouble to read such small chars...

Does anyone know where an english patch for this is available? I can't start reading it yet mainly due to having zero experience with Japanese.

The patch is in progress. It's barely been a month since Higanbana was released!

We're currently working on an English patch which is coming along quite well. Translation for the first of seven chapters is complete (see the video I posted above) and I've done a basic proofread of it, so most of the major typos are gone.

Translation of the second chapter has started, although there are a few bugs we're trying to sort out, including at least one that was present in the original Japanese version.

Either way, the patch will be released when the translation is done and we feel it is of a high enough quality. You can keep track of progress at http://ronove.blogspot.com/.

Wow very nice, can't wait. And as for the VN does it contain all chapters that will be released or is it like Umineko, with 2 separate arcs?

The visual novel that was released last month is Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni: The First Night. Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni: The Second Night is currently in development and will probably be released at FuyuComi (end of December). The Second Night will not include The First Night. No word has been given on whether there will be any more releases after The Second Night.

I hope this answers your question.

I had no clue this was already getting translated. I had a bit of a fanboy moment, and now that I have calmed down, I thank those of you who are working on this =3

Just checking in to say that the second chapter has been completed (for a while, actually, but still).
