Oh snap. This is interesting news. Also, can't wait to see Le Fruit de la Grisaia for Fall!

your telling me we actually got a key/visual art's licensed in the west??? I know that Planetarian isn't a really long visual novel, however it is one vn and anime fans should read it at least once. Well let's hope that more key/visual art vn's can be licensed in the future. I'm also going to keep an eye on Le Fruit de la Grisaia, it looks fairly promising.

they announced Grisaia will not be the 18+ PC version.Let's remind that "If My Heart Had Wings" All-Ages localization was a mess because that game doesn't have an All-Ages console port,and thus,the localization simply got the 18+ version and removed the 18+ content without re-working the scenes and dialogue properly,I won't support Sekai Project's release if they do the same thing.However,Grisaia does have All-Ages ports on PSP and Vita.If Sekai Project is going to localize those All-Ages ports,then I will be getting it day 1

I'd rather they just localize all versions, include the 18+ ones. Havnt played this game, but a lot 18+ versions at least give people the option to disable the 18+ parts. Options are great

Dude, Grisaia has been subbed for a while now. They're going to rip the subs and twist few things around. The subs are very excellent, too.

Go play it now. It's really good.

While I'm on it, I hope they licensed the next two sequels for Grisaia because those are not subbed yet.

They're talking about the anime.

The fact that a Key game got localized gives me high hopes for the Angel Beats visual novel getting localized when it gets released. Would be awesome if someone got the All-Ages version of Muv-Luv too.

Really happy to hear about Planetarian being released over here! We can only hope this is a sign for other KEY works to follow Smile

Very cool. Planeterian will be well-worth buying for a 3rd time (assuming Sekai Project does a physical release with it).

All signs point so far to this NOT being a repeat of Moenovel.

Really wish they would just give us the full 18+ version of Grisaia and then make an optional one with H-scenes removed. However, I wonder if sekaiproject will also remove the nude scenes.

Frontwing's gallery page features a non-adult event CG gallery and a separate H-CG gallery. This pic was in the non-adult gallery.

Having already read World End Economica, Sekai Project has actual translators while Moenovel has a machine edit with poor grammar. So definitely an improvement. Can't wait for this to come out!

Officially localized Key VN? Can I hope a lot from this one? Is it okay for me to hope Key to give their other VNs to be officially localized?

Sure, but after Key itself did Planetarian in English for iOS, there was hope they themselves would continue with some of their other titles in English. Licensing out the PC version to a third party seems like a step back, frankly.

Still, maybe if this does well, we can finally get the holy trinity of Air, Kanon, and Clannad? A decade late and a dollar short, but VN fans in the West have to be happy for anything we get, I suppose.
