Here's the last four bios. I included the Witch Hunt translations of the dialogue from the video because they're much better than I could do and WH is awesome.

Ryukishi07 is only illustrating a few of the characters. I suppose it wouldn't make sense to exclusively use his drawings since it's not being marketed as a "sound novel".

Finally someone that shares my sorrow! I love R07 art, his character designs, facial expressions, everything! a 07th expansion novel without R07's drawing style it's just.. not the same.. everyone is happy about it but i'm mad and sad, when I read the afterword in Hane where R07 said he may stop drawing his novels.. I DID die a little inside..

Calm down, it's not like he didn't draw anything... he did all the backgrounds and a few characters. He said he just asked Square Enix to introduce him to other artists to help with that boatload of work of his. Can't blame the poor man.

Awesome I will have to get this game then now that there will be translation. I can't read enough Japanese at that level on my own. Can hardly wait!

A very good choice to use other artists! I'm overjoyed he is not doing the majority of the art. Everyone is not good at everything, but everyone is good at something. He does story best

My thoughts exactly, down to the last word. The large hands are part of the experience!

To be fair though, as much as I love his art, he probably had various factors to think of. After all, most people are thrown off by his art as it's not easy to get used to, which may end up hurting the sales (I know a bunch of people who never bothered with the Umineko VN because they stupidly were unable to get over the art).

Well, this isn't all bad I guess...He is drawing SOMETHING, at least. And personally, I loved the art in Umineko EP4 manga, but well, I wouldn't be sure so about Tatarigoroshi's and Umineko EP2 hideous art....

Thanks for the translations! (and congratulations for your graduation^^)

Hope I'm fast enough to get a copy, and really happy to know that it will get translated by you guys! Thank you sooooo much.
After it gets released I don't know if I will avoid or not spoilers...

I'm quite satisfied with the character designs since I love them all and thanks to the coloring it doesn't look that strange with 4 different artists. I didn't like Higurashi designs but grew quite fond of Umineko's

I don't think people complaining about his artwork is the reason Ryukishi07 only drew some of the characters. He did say that it was to make the workload somewhat manageable.

If they were worried about sales figures, 07th Expansion would be a commercial company, not a small doujin group.

Yeah, sure, but they've actually come a long way since Higurashi's copyrighted BGMs, I figured it's only natural they'd start becoming a bit more proffesional (plus there are way too many people out there complaining about Ryukishi's art, and they're even making patches to change it with the PS3 one -which is actually MUUUUCH uglier in Higurashi's case- . The only reason he doesn't give an old rat's ass about them is that he seems to be having so much fun drawing it).

Heh, if they made the games too professional, there'd be less reason to buy the (considerably more expensive) console ports.

Honestly though, I'm sure Ryukishi07 is aware of the criticism. And there's evidence that he's been trying to improve his drawing style. Still, I don't think he wants to disappoint those who think of his drawings as an integral part of the experience.

I don't think I should link to it, but you can probably find more information by searching for the terms "higurashi" and "patch" using your favourite search engine.

Essentially it replaces the game's art with the art from the PlayStation 2 version.

For this game is it a series or just one game?

This is going to be a series. Seven games, in fact. And like Higurashi and Umineko, Episode 3 will contain 2 and 1 too and so on.

Only one game has been announced, and there's been no indication so far that it will be a series.

It definitely works with the official one. I don't know of a patch which works with the original Japanese version.

Huh? Really? Does this come from Epitanime? I hadn't heard that…

That's right. Unless I completely misunderstood Ryukishi's words (my Japanese is not stellar, but I'm pretty sure he said that ). Anyway, I'm sure summaries about Epitanime will come out soon enough.

Ah, cool. A lot of people have written stuff about the Epitanime event on Tumblr, but I hadn't seen anything like that. Looking forward to the summaries.
