We here at KAJITANI-EIZAN’s Patch Site hope that you all are having another wonderful holiday season!
I am sure your mugs of hot cocoa and plates of pecan pie are gripped tightly in hand as you ponder what KAJITANI-EIZAN’s Patch Site and friends have been up to recently. First, as per ever-popular demand, I’ve updated the progress bar! It was a lot of work, so I hope that will keep you happy for a while. The venerable throughhim413’s translation efforts plod onwards, hopefully to finish within the current decade, even as Kingcom works (read: attempts to get me to work) on the script management backend. But before I get into any of those boring details, I would like to talk about what you guys really want to hear — Beryl.
Second only to Jadeite, Beryl is basically the best JRPG/anime character ever. It took me a while to realize it, but Tales of Hearts: Reimagination opened my eyes to this truth. (One of its few redeeming qualities.) She is a rogue painter warrior who fights by slinging colors around with a giant brush. How awesome is that? As if that wasn’t awesome enough, her brush comes out of her enormous wizard hat that she also has. I did mention the styling arcane lines and gems on said awesome hat of awesomeness, right? Furthermore, she is extremely multi-talented. As the party’s frail offensive mage, she would normally be confined to the back lines. However, her quick-casting Ice Needles spell is devastating to nearby enemies, and she even has overpowered Strike Artes that wreak havoc on any foes foolish enough to come within melee range. Best of all, just like Jadeite, she has a heart of gold. She appears to be taken by our protagonist Shing’s straightforward and earnest nature, but despite that, she nudges the relationship between him and Amber along. Also, she’s the only party member who has no real personal reason or obligation to tag along and save the world; she could have just gone home and drank some tea. Instead, she risks her life because she knows it’s the right thing to do and because she knows the party wouldn’t be able to pull through without her. Truly, she is a shining paragon of selflessness.
There’s nothing especially new to see in this video. Just that as you can see, Beryl is incredibly awesome — so awesome, in fact, that she too can access the powerful new Emotional Meltdown Overdrive mode that you may recall that Amber had previously displayed. If only you could play the game fully in English already and see for yourself how awesome she is. If only.
Well, I don’t want to bore you with any boring details about boring topics like how far along the translation is, so I’ll just leave those for another update. Happy Holidays to everyone, and until next time!

Wow. Hidden full release he says. Unless the release has been put on one of the linked pages, it is certainly not here. I could be wrong, but I checked for links. Doesn’t take a genius to use the tab key o.o

It’s not nice to lie to people during the holidays.
Oh, wait, I just found it…..but it’s translated into Chinese. The wait for an English release continues.

“(TOPSECRET/;計画通り” strange image name for the progress bar. According to plan. Thought there might be something hidden in the but nope…just a weird name. That is all.

I get all warm and happy inside because the progress bar is so incredibly festive.

No release they are just trolling. Looked for hours on every code source pages I could find.
If there was really a release, a hint would be welcomed.

Did Beryl always have that ripple effect when activating her hi ougi…?
December 28, 2013 at 9:08 pm | Permalink
Don’t be silly; of course she did.
Why would I ever mess with that…?
December 30, 2013 at 11:20 am | Permalink
I’m so confused.
Though I also noticed that the CG is a different shade. What’s up with that?
December 30, 2013 at 11:22 am | Permalink
Oh wait I watched again and it looks like it’s an EMO gauge. Or it’s related in some way to it.
I need answers Kaji!

Answer(not from Kaji) mhhmmm hargeyefbkd;fovhs ,,,, kaudvhbo;wK,PJEBFVJCHB JHFNBGLWlll….There you have it. That’s everything. Stay tuned for scenes from the next episode of Dragon Ball Z.

The actual graphics for it aren’t finished yet, but upon attaining the fabled Super Cellaid 3 form, your characters unlock a third CG bar that allows you to grow your hair out and become EMO. It is suggested that you mute the DS at this time and play some Linkin Park. If you score at least a 95% in the karaoke minigame that follows, you may have a chance of activating…!

That sounds awesome! Keep up the good work!
Now I’m off to download the entire music library of Linkin Park

Stellar progress. Going by that progress bar, you’re really putting other translations to shame. The Final Fantasy Type-0 project has been going for almost a year, and they’re still projecting another THREE WEEKS until release. Slackers.
Keep up the great work, guys!

*sigh*Guys, Kaji’s been parading this racket for YEARS now, if he was translating it he’d be done by now… But since the patch STILL isn’t uploaded, it’s safe to assume 1 of 2 things, he’s either playing everyone here for fools or he has no intention of releasing his translation patch…
