Sekai Project Plans Kickstarter Campaign for Grisaia Games

posted on 2014-10-10 21:00 EDT

US$40,000, US$80,000, US$120,000 goals to bring trilogy to the West with voices

Video game and visual novel translation company Sekai Project announced on Friday that it will launch a Kickstarter fundraising campaign in November to bring Frontwing’s Grisaia game trilogy to the West. Sekai Project already announced in July that it licensed the first game, The Fruit of Grisaia (Grisaia no Kajitsu/Le Fruit de la Grisaia).

If the campaign succeeds in raising US$40,000, TLWiki and Sekai Project will release The Fruit of Grisaia with Japanese voices, as well as new CGs and “a freshly edited translation.” (The funds will also go towards voices in the rest of the trilogy.)

If the campaign reaches the US$80,000 stretch goal, it will add The Labyrinth of Grisaia (Grisaia no Meikyū/Le Labyrinthe de la Grisaia) fan disc/prequel, and the US$120,000 stretch goal will add The Eden of Grisaia (Grisaia no Rakuen/Le Eden de la Grisaia) sequel.

Sekai Project is proposing a US$150,000 stretch goal for the spinoff Idol Mahō Shōjo Chiruchiru ☆ Michiru. It is also considering a US$250,000 stretch goal for ports to the PS Vita system or mobile devices.

Sekai Project describes the story of The Fruit of Grisaia:

Mihama Academy - on the surface, a closed learning environment established to nurture students who find themselves at odds with the world around them; in actuality, an orchard-turned-prison built to preserve fruit that has fallen too far from its tree.

Whatever the circumstances behind its establishment, Mihama Academy is at present home to five female students, all with their own reasons for “enrollment.” For better or worse, each girl has established a routine obliging of her current situation; life moves at an idle, yet accommodating pace within the walls of Mihama.

Yet with the arrival of the institute’s first male student, the nearly preposterously opaque Kazami Yuuji, the students at Mihama begin to fall out of step with their predetermined rhythms. Will Yuuji prove to be the element the girls around him needed to take hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome?

And in the first place, just who is Kazami Yuuji? While the true nature of the “job” he is wont to alight to at the most haphazard of moments remains shrouded in secrecy, one thing is for certain - his encroachment upon the quiet orchard known as Mihama Academy will prove itself momentous in one way or another. And of course, one cannot discount the possibility that perhaps Yuuji himself carries the weightiest past of any of the students…

Sekai Project will offer the uncut mature versions of the games in both physical and digitial editions. It will also offer the all-ages versions at least digitally, through the Steam platform or through its own platform. A television anime of the first game premiered this month. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North America, and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.

With those costs to bring over a dub, perhaps they should reach out to the Sentai combine and get a price for an English dub and tack it on too as when the costs are this astronomical already, what’s a few thousand dollars more?

If they seek an English dub, I’ll pledge my support on Kickstarter regardless of my impressions of the (not yet watched) related anime series.

…I’m not a fan of them making their own distribution platform. Gotta nip that in the bud.


#8

Saw this one. Really bad CG animation (Knights of Sidonia level bad) and a ridiculous “cinematic” aspect ratio. It’s strength is that is “meta” but that’s not enough to save it.

It’s probably better to watch Full Metal Panic than this.

Sekai Project launches Kickstarter Campaign for Grisaia Games

The Grisaia Trilogy: Kickstarter Campaign

Story

The Fruit of Grisaia

“Mihama Academy.” At a glance, it might seem a normal school; but this isolated learning environment is home to a mere five students, all female.

This changes with the arrival of Kazami Yuuji, a transfer student with an uncertain past and a highly idiosyncratic personality.

As Yuuji interacts with his five classmates, all borderline-eccentrics in their own right, they begin to influence each other in unexpected, meaningful ways…

But the deep-seated, painful wounds that have brought these five young women to Mihama are still a fact of their existence. And eventually, our protagonist can no longer remain a spectator.

Will Yuuji’s peculiar set of skills and experiences enable him to open his classmates’ stubbornly-sealed hearts…?

The Labyrinth of Grisaia

The sequel contains five “After Stories” continuing all of the heroines’ routes from “The Fruit of Grisaia,” in addition to “The Cocoon of Caprice,” a story which touches on Kazami Yuuji’s painful, complex past and explores certain mysteries left unresolved in the previous title. A variety of bonus content is also included, including dozens of brief “Short Stories.”

The Eden of Grisaia

The conclusion to the trilogy consists of “The Seed of Blanc Aile,” directly continuing from The Labyrinth of Grisaia’s main route. Beginning with the protagonist’s sudden disappearance, the story quickly moves toward a dramatic climax, with all the answers revealed at last. Additional contents include “Prologue de la Grisaia,” a side story that depicts the five heroines’ arrival at Mihama Academy, and their time there prior to the arrival of Kazami Yuuji
