How to read Japanese visual novels:

This is supposedly a high quality translation program where you need a license. This should make it superior to all the free translation addons and programs, such as Google Translate or Babelfish and similar.

Here is where you get it. Download the V14 trial version:

These two cracks needs to be placed in the same folder you install the program:

Now you need a texthooker program. The most common one is called AGTH (Anime Games Text Hooker) and I'm sure people have heard of it before, however, due to it being a pain to install(at least in my case) I've found another program called ITH (Interactive Text Hooker).

ITH download:

Get the latest ITH: 2.2 (2011.5.3).
There's a bunch of tutorial links, guides and what not, you can choose to check them out, but I simply ignored them and found another guide.

Follow this step-by-step guide on how to set up ITH.

If it's still unclear, or if I missed something, just let me know.

Utawarerumono's my favorite visual novel by far. The characters are incredible, the story is one of the best too, and it has a funny strategy rol game inside. The anime is good, but it could have been better.

Fate Stay Night is my second favorite, and the only one that is close to utaware. Once again, great characters and storyline, and in this case, it was well adapted into the anime.

I guess my 3rd favorite would be tsukihime... but this visual novel doesn't have an anime.

I really want to play clannad's and shuffle's visual novels, but they haven't been translated yet. And I might give chaos head a chance once it's fully translated.

As for the doujin games, i've played a bunch of them, but apart from melty blood all the rest were crap.

I'm basically the same as Weika, but I have yet to even try out the "Fate/Unlimited Codes" game. But I am totally crazy about the "Melty Blood" series. I haven't been able to try "Melty Blood: Actress Again" though...

Edit: 01/29/09

"Melty Blood" is a fighting game extra/sequel to "Tsukihime". Just so you know...

My favorite VN is Tsukihime, followed by Saya no Uta, and lastly Fate/stay night. Currently I'm playing Princess Waltz on a recommendation from a friend, but I just can't get into that one.

And like Weika and Verlaine, my favorite 2D fighter is also Melty Blood. Wish I could play Fate/unlimited codes, though.

I think my ISP would like.....charge me extreme amounts of money for using that much bandwidth. I mean, I could fit it all, but the rest of the internet probably wouldn't be too happy.

OKAY!

this is to prevent another "School Days" incident(if you weren't on the IRC, then don't ask about how bad it was), as well as to amass all the VN's that we possibly can(ero or otherwise). I'll start, but i would love it if peoples started to upload or link to VN's and their english translations as well...

This is what i have compiled for now, i will work on getting more though. in the meantime, DL these, and share some that you have. These torrents and links should all still be active, if they are not, please tell me and i will try to fix it...

Fate/Stay Night~ (minimal ero scenes(like 2 per story))
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Torrent for game
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - English Patch

Tsukihime(not plus disk)~ (same as F/SN)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Torrent for game
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - English Patch

Melty Blood~ (not sure... don't think so because it's a fighting game like Soulcalibur, but i dunno)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - torrent for game
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - English patch

Yume Miru Kusuri~ (ero fo sho, *loli*-ish scenes, and already in english)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - torrent for english game

Clannad~ (comes with voice, and english translation, and "Its a Wonderful life" probably comes with "School days" but im not sure, apparently no ero, but i unno)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] <-- link to site to dl torrent... the torrent has everything in a nice 11 gig file for you hah hah

Wanko to Kurasou~ (oh god yes, it's full of loli, and some older-ish)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Torrent for game
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - English Patch

Brass Restortaion~ (non ero, just a good read)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Direct Download for English .exe
This game is NOT ero, and it is FREEWARE, meaning that the overall quality is not as good at the other games, but it still a good read.

Tears to Tiara~ (ero i think? and its a tactical game more than a VN... but hey whatever)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - game torrent
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - English patch, direct download

Utawarerumo~ (i think this has some ero scenes, and this game is like Tears to Tiara, i think.)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - this is the game, in 10 parts. have fun dling all this
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Direct dl english patch from every one's favorite, mirror moon

Narcissu~(i don't think it's ero, i'm not even sure it's a VN, there are no choices, hah hah)~
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - direct download to torrent on page

OMGWTFOTL~(not for the faint of heart. oh my god, what the fuck is right. this VN rocks, non-ero)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - direct download to torrent on page

Ever 17~(this torrent is BALLS slow, but is alive. BTW, awesome VN, but no eroge. sorry)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - direct download to torrent on page

Chaos Head~(haven't tried it yet, torrent is slow, but alive. i unno if ero or not)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Umineko~(fixed. note, the torrent is crawling. note note, the patch only works for episode 2, no clue if ero or not)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] ~ game, episode 2
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] ~ english patch

MoonShine~(haven't tried it yet but it's DLing... don't know if it's ero or not)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - direct download link is on the page

Nocturnal Illusion(NOTE: i cannot get this to work. You are freaking welcome to try. if it works, tell me how you did it k? i unno if ero, read precedding sentence)~
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - direct download of game
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - SUPPOSED tutorial to install the game. POS.

School Days(read the warning, i'm telling you, i think this would have ero in it, if the damn thing worked)~
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Torrent for the game.
Concerning School Days, i would suggest NOT downloading this game. For one, that means that you have to torrent a 7.51 gig file. and for two, there is no english patch. don't be fooled! Sekai project is indeed working on a patch, and there IS an English patch on their website, BUT. The patch only translates the menu and the options into english. after a year and a half, they have completed 15% of the game, so don't expect a patch EVER.

Batch VN Torrent(a bunch of games are in this one, some are listed above. WARNING: NOT SURE IF THIS WORKS. and it's like 30 gigs, you wanna torrent that? go ahead. also, apparently it's slow. im not going to even bother if this is ero or not. there is like a million VNs in there)~
