Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia



Title: Edelweiss (エーデルワイス 詠伝ファンタジア)
Release date: 2008-08-29 (2010-03-20 in English)
Developer: Overdrive
English publisher: MangaGamer

Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia is a fandisc to the parent game Edelweiss, released almost two years after the latter. As you have probably already read, I found the original game to be quite a funny little time waster, that wasn't particularly great, but kept me entertained nonetheless. However, there was a big oversight made during the production of Edelweiss (or an ingenious business decision) - two charming girls, Sakura and Rin, didn't have their individual routes. This fandisc fixes that and provides us with more of the shenanigans courtesy of Haruma Kazushi. Let's see how it fares in comparison to the original story.

Edelweiss Review

Title: Edelweiss (エーデルワイス) 
Release date: 2006-12-15 (2008-07-10 in English; Version v2.0 in 2011-09-02)
Developer: Overdrive
English publisher: MangaGamer

Edelweiss is probably MangaGamer's most infamous title and for all the wrong reasons. It was the first title released by MG then still in its infancy stage. It's enough to say that the title was ushered out in a broken form. Localized by native Japanese speakers with not enough English skills it suffered from Blind Idiot Translation and tarnished MG's name for quite a while. Even when the company got their act together and started to produce adequate translations many people still felt distrustful due to this and other first efforts.

Fans demanded a retranslation for a long time and more than three years after the original release it finally happened. I haven't played more than an hour of the original as I felt no desire to ruin my first impression of the game and thus I heartily dove straight into this updated version. Let's see what it's all about...

Developer: Score

Wooohooo, sexytime! Another post and another nukige. This time with maids and as Yuuki said maid's outfit is one of ten sexiest outfits for a girl. Let's see if this title is any good as my previous run in with a Score title (Cosplay Alien) was not very successful.
