    I don't think they've turned anything upside down... yet. They've had a lot of poo thrown at them by people on the internet, but that's a tediously common occurance these days and isn't, by itself, a noteworthy achievement

    While i dont agree with what Moenovel is doing(some things) i have to say you are right that this is way too overblown mostly probably because people dont have what to talk about.

    "I fully understand that this isnít going to be an easy ride. But our number one motivation is in wanting people all over the world to know about the Japanese-born game genre known as visual novels. Business is important, too, but that motivation is stronger. Rather than quitting because we hear that the Western market is a difficult, weíre going to give it a try. We at MoeNovel really take this to heart."

    Seriously, they're focusing on the resolution of all things.... >_>
    I'm all for pretty art, but I'm pretty sure most people would take a good story over somewhat better looking sprites.

    That's a pretty decent article, but I have a couple of (minor) issues concerning it.

    While its actions alone are enough to raise ire, MoeNovel has added fuel to the fire with careless quips like this:

    For example, we want 12 year old French girls who like anime to know about [our title] as well, and make it so that there is no problem appealing it to these girls.

    12-year-old French girls? You expect 12-year-old French girls to:
    1.Buy a game from an online shopping site
    2.in English
    3.Thatís a text novel (in their 2nd language, assuming they know English)
    4.That puts the reader in the shoes of a male protagonist, and is
    5.About falling in love with one of several high school girls
    You're going to have to help me out here. I've heard this quote thrown around (although sometimes it's '13 year old French girl' or even '14 year old French girl') but I can't find the original interview it came from. What I have found, instead, is an interview on the web where Moenovel said this:

    For example, if a 13-year-old girl in the UK who happens to be an anime fan saw If My Heart Had Wings on Rice Digital and became interested, she might then visit MoeNovelís official website or Facebook page, and might even write about it on her Facebook page. This is the flow of things we expect in attaining a game rating. We think itís important to try to appeal to people who might be thinking, ďI have always liked Japanese anime and manga, but have never played visual novelsĒ, or ďI donít really understand whatís so great about the visual novels that have been released in the west so far.Ē

    If you look at our Facebook, youíll see that young girls are also starting to take interest. In Japan this would be unthinkable, where 90% of players are male.
    Interview with Fujisan from MoeNovel | Rice Digital

    Which is fair enough really. Also, concerning points 4 and 5 above, Persona 3 and 4 on the PS2 was pretty popular with girls, and that game involved a male protagonist who romanced female high school students. My sister can't get enough of Persona 4, for example.

    The translation quality is also not very good, and reportedly itís downright awful in certain sections.
    True, but the demo is not the final version of the game and the translation is being done by the same people who did Demon Souls, one of the greatest rpgs of the generation. They are a proven translation company and should be given the benefit of the doubt until we have seen the release version.
