Official Another Story Rewrite - Chapter 1: Seeking for a Small Happiness

This is the translation of the first chapter of Official Another Story Rewrite ~Ha Yure Sasayaku Shoukei de~ This chapter is focused on Kotori, as a side story that happens probably during Rewrite common route. It's a light and fun story to read. Additionally, this story is also available in the format of Drama CD that came with Rewrite PSP pre-order. The drama CD is highly restricted by Prototype (the company that ported Rewrite to PSP) So naturally I'm not gonna post the drama CD in my YT channel.

Little Busters! BD Game - Nishizono Mio's Locked-Room Murder Case!?

This time I translated the BD Game that comes with the first volume of Little Busters! ~Refrain~ anime Blu-ray. The game comes in Blu-Ray format, so you can play the game in your Blu-ray player.
The game mechanism is similar to Little Busters! visual novel, that is multiple choices to reach a specific ending. (I'll be honest, there are only two endings in this game. It's just a short game, dude. But certainly is longer than the other side stories I've ever translated.)
Additionally, I have created a complicated string of routes in HTML so you can play it in your browser. Unfortunately, it's all (mostly) texts because the Blu-ray game is protected, I can't take screenshot of it. (The images used here were all taken from glorious internet world.)

The game is about mystery solving. It's not impossible to reach the answer with the first set of hints, but there are also other hints that will help. There are some part that requires you knowledge in Japanese language, but I put some notes about it, so I hope it isn't too complicated for you to understand.

If you notice something that's odd, or if the codes aren't working for you, please leave comment or message me. This is still in beta-test. (Also, please use updated browser to play it. I'm using Firefox, so I don't know if it works well in other browsers or not)

Also, special thanks to Rincchi who provided the writeup version of the game lines, this is very helpful for the translation.

Official Another Story Rewrite - Translation Project

Following the happy news that Rewrite would get an anime adaptation,
I will be translating the stories in Official Another Story Rewrite: ~葉揺れささやく小径で~ Ha Yure Sasayaku Shoukei de (on the small path of rustling leaves).

For your information about the book:
Official Another Story Rewrite is an official short story collection written by the writers of Rewrite (credited as Key) and illustrated by ZEN. There are 9 stories and each is for a certain character (in order: Kotori, Chihaya, Akane, Shizuru, Lucia, Kagari, Kotarou, Sakuya and YO-SHI-NO!)
I will be posting the translation in that order. (Hopefully - I don't know how long it'll take to translate them all.)

I decided not to include the illustration included in the book. Not because I'm a cheapskate (I am). Not because I'm telling you all to buy the book to support the creators especially ZEN, the illustrator (actually, yes, please buy the book). But because my scanner is super shitty and with such potato quality scanner, such great artworks would be reduced to trash (real reason).

In addition, the first chapter of this book (Kotori's story) was made into drama CD available when you pre-order the PSP version of Rewrite (also in the Vita version, for limited time only though). I actually wanted to put the subbed drama CD in my YT channel, but I'll probably get a copyright strike for dat. So, no uploading drama CD. Sorry.
