shi0n’s challenge

Rejoice! Nao’s route shall be completed earlier than expected! shi0n has bravely accepted a challenge from Yuki-tan to speed up (of course without lowering the quality). See for yourself.


… I think the team will only finish YNS in the end of 2016…


I felt challenged by your comment… I suddenly had the urge to translate and finish everything that’s in my back log…
*challenge accepted*

I will do more Nao-chan!  <3

shi0n has not given the exact date of completion, but at least number of translated lines per month will be higher than up until now! Assuming shi0n has around 64% of it done, he has only 36% left (of course QC will be performed after it). がんばってください, shi0n! (tl: Give it your best, shi0n!)

2014年6月7日 – Yosuga no Sora update + Haruka na Sora information

As usual, let’s start with YNS progress:

  • Sora: 8288/8288 (100.00%)
  • Nao: 4650/7311 (63.60%)
  • Akira: 6473/8793 (73.62%)
  • Kazuha: 6634/6634 (100.00%)
  • Motoka: 1889/6261 (30.17%)
  • Common route: 2096/2096 (100.00%)

Total: 30030/39383 (76.25%). So yeah, progress on Nao and Motoka, Akira’s route was not touched this month.

I checked and there has been no progress since last time for Haruka na Sora. The stats are the same as last time:

  • Sora: 639/5535 (11.54%)
  • Yahiro: 0/4197 (0.00%)
  • Kozue: 1173/4944 (23.73%)
  • “Countdown”: 17/341 (4.99%)
  • Karaoke: 0/365 (0.00%)
  • Akira intro: 0/100 (0.00%)
  • Nao intro: 0/111 (0.00%)
  • Sora intro: 117/117 (100.00%)
  • Kazuha intro: 0/120 (0.00%)
  • Motoka intro: 0/100 (0.00%)
  • Kozue intro: 0/158 (0.00%)

Total: 1946/16088 (12.10%).

Some people have been asking about Haruka na Sora patch. Well, I can produce it, but it will look ugly. HNS differs from YNS a bit. Technical explanation for it is below.

The main problem is that YNS has line width width space for 28 full-width characters (like kanji) or 56 half-width characters (like latin characters). In HNS all characters are treated as full-width, so after placing English into it, only half of the line is used. It’s bad enough that in YNS line scrolls quite often (that’s because English is sometimes more than 2 times as wide than Japanese after translation). In HNS we can only use half of this line. Here is a screen from HNS to show this problem:

HNS screenOf course it is possible to take care of, but it will probably require hacking the application itself (.exe), not only the file with scenario (.csx). This is a time-consuming step. I will get to it eventually, but since there is no progress on HNS and we’re focused on YNS right now, I plan to do this after YNS is completed.

If you still feel like checking it out, mail me at, but I can almost guarantee that you will not enjoy it.

2014年2月2日 – Yosuga no Sora update

Hi. Sorry for late update. Firstly, here are the stats:

  • Sora8288/8288 (100.00%)
  • Nao3657/7311 (50.02%)
  • Akira5816/8793 (66.14%)
  • Kazuha6634/6634 (100.00%)
  • Motoka1641/6261 (26.21%)
  • Common2096/2096 (100.00%)

Total: 28132/39383 (71.43%).

Shi0n got into some temporary problems, so progress has slowed down. xrtyui did quite a few updates on Motoka’s route lately. bekyuubi’s Akira’s route is stalled, it seems.

You might want to visit Shi0n’s page too, as he does updates on Nao’s route himself. Expect minor spoilers though.

As always, fresh patch available in the topic on our IRC channel I also lurk there, so feel free to ask about anything. Just note that response time on IRC is usually 15min-1h, since that’s just how IRC works.

Thanks to all people lurking on IRC and leaving comments on this site for encouraging YNS project!

  • Akira omake: 0/100 (0.00%) lines
  • Nao omake: 0/111 (0.00%) lines
  • Sora omake: 117/117 (100.00%) lines

Oh, okay, okay…


Happy New Christmas and Merry Year.

EDIT: Name of the mysterious translator of Motoka’s route is… xrtyui.
