Set in Kazegaura, a suburb in Japan, just outside of Tokyo, 'If My Heart Had Wings' is an animated visual novel bringing forth a passionate, youthful and dream filled high school life story. Aoi Minase returns with shattered dreams to his wind-swept hometown of Kazegaura. There, atop a hill lined with windmills, he encounters a wheelchair-bound girl, Kotori Habane, and a beautiful, white glider soaring through the sky. Together, they decide to revive their school's defunct Soaring Club in order to ride the "Morning Glory", a phantom cloud carried on the wind that blows across Kazegaura. This is a tale of youth, a tale of boys and girls who loved the sky.

Very expensive visual novel. Pricing is basically a retail professionally made game...

This IS a professionally made "game".

Sadly it was butchered during localization, I'm on the fence for buying it due to that.

When you say Butchered, do you mean its just a terrible localization, or have they actually edited the content/removed things?

Edited content. Some of it understandable (Porn scenes taken out, nudity), some of it simply not (kissing scenes, an entire route changed just because it's about friends with benefits which could be done without the explicit sex, sex jokes). The translation is not perfect, and improvable, but not something horrible. They tried to remain a bit too literal in translation, while a mix of literal and localization is always recommended from my point of view (But again, not something to complain too hard over).

Thanks for the info, I think I'll give this a miss for now.

Thanks for the info - I'll also skip this game. It's a pity when a great looking game gets content cut just because somebody is not comfortable with sex. Come on, it's the most natural thing there is! Just add an 18+ sticker to the game box and let the game be as the creators intended.

MoeNovel wants to appeal to a wider audience, especially to those 12 year old girls out there ( this has been stated by them countless times in interviews) so sadly we won't be seeing uncensored games from them any time soon. Pretty much they are going to end up being the 4kids for VNs.....

I agree with you. I like to have at least the option available if i buy a type of game like this.

Count me out too. I could probably justify this price if the "localisation" had been nothing more than a good translation and bug free release, but cutting content just because some people might dissagree with the subject matter is inexcusable for me. No sale.

Demo, please? Of course it looks expensive, just look at other visual novels here. But I'd love to see me convinced this is an AAA game and it's worth the price tag.

Do not buy this visual novel. It has a lot of censored stuff ( h scenes, kissing scenes, panty scenes, edited language) which is butchering the original. The translation is also stiff in some places. Don't believe me? Just google it.

fuwanovel.org has a fan restoration patch in the works. Perhaps hold off until it is ready.

Err, I'd think it would be more appropriate to not buy this butchered version at all, regardless of a fix patch (that fans ae forced to make in place of original translators, who should not have committed this sin in the first place!). To not encourage this kind of rape of original material in the future.

There are some typos, I'll give it that, but mostly that page is a bunch of Americans complaining that "Moving house", "in two minds" isn't normal English. And so on and so forth.

I'm just reading through it thinking - they translated it into English, like the people in England use. The people in England who have had to put up with games translated from Japanese to American slang for decades.

Do these people complain at the grammar in games like Fable, too?

Argh, this game is missing 12% of all dialogue due to censorship, but I want to read it because finally, I get a translation from Japanese into my native language.

Also, it's supposed to be a really good story. Play Asia have been advertising it to me for months.

Good luck with that. One of the routes was a friends with benefits type of thing and they butchered it. (Ageha)

On one hand I think it's somewhat deceitful to cut so much out of a game and still claim it's the complete thing. On the other hand, I think it'll still be worth reading - as a good story.

I thought I should at least give the demo a go, see if that sways me one way or the other. I started it downloading about 8 hours ago - it's only 634MB and it's still going; their servers aren't up to much. It's like they don't want me to trial their game. :|
