The Grisaia Trilogy: Three Huge Visual Novels for PC

$475,255

4,348

With everyone’s help, our goal is to localize the entire trilogy of Grisaia visual novels for Windows PC! 

  • The Fruit of Grisaia - Anime adaptation currently airing in Japan!
  • The Labyrinth of Grisaia
  • The Eden of Grisaia 

Note: The Sony Playstation Vita release of these games received a CERO D rating in Japan, which is the equivalent of an ESRB "M for Mature" rating.

SD Comics

Why Kickstarter?

The Grisaia series is an enormous story featuring 80+ hours of gameplay - possibly the single most ambitious visual novel localization to date. Our goal covers the costs of a high-quality translation, licensing royalties, voices for the entire series, and other development / production costs.

As visual novels are still just gaining popularity with gamers and anime fans overseas, localizing and translating these three games comes with many risks. Let’s show Frontwing and other amazing visual novel companies together just how much we want to enjoy their games in English!

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.

Project Outline

If this project is successfully funded, we plan to release localized PC ports of the Vita versions of the Grisaia trilogy in English, fully voiced in Japanese as both a digital download and as a physical copy! The Vita port includes new scenes and CGs from the two artists of Grisaia. We also prepared various Kickstarter exclusive Grisaia rewards such as hand-illustrated shikishi signboards drawn personally for you by the artists of Grisaia, Watanabe Akio and Fumio!

Staff

  • Art: Watanabe Akio, Fumio, Nanaka Mai (SD Characters)
  • Scenario Writers: Fujisaki Ryuuta, Kuwashima Yoshikazu, Kazuya, Kio Nachi (Kajitsu & Meikyuu), Narumi Eiji (Meikyuu & Rakuen)
  • Music: Elements Garden, eufonius, Faylan, and many more

Reward Previews

Here are some previews of the variety of backer rewards that will be available with this campaign! We've got some fantastic items being made for this campaign that are worth checking out.

Stretch Goals

  • $200,000 - Idol Magical Girl Chiruchiru ☆ Michiru, a spin-off game to the Grisaia series, will be licensed and localized. Like the other three games, this will be made available in both digital download and physical format.
  • $240,000 - Grisaia Ports! The series will be ported to different platforms. We will be porting the game to Unity so the games can be played on Mac/Linux/Vita*

*Pending approval from Sony

Cost Breakdown

  • 40% for localization
  • 30% for voices and licensing
  • 20% for shipping and production of items
  • 10% for fees

Who is Sekai Project?

We are a multinational group of fans and creators, working to promote Japanese multimedia and live content overseas. Being fans of visual novels ourselves, it is our dream to see many of the classics released in English. 

You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ for more information about our other projects and games! We also have a forum setup if you want to interact with other visual novel fans.

Risks and challenges

Localizing the Grisaia Series is a very large undertaking. However, significant progress has already been made. We're working with the team behind a well-regarded fan translation of Grisaia no Kajitsu, which will be edited and polished for official release; work on localizing the sequels should therefore begin relatively quickly.

Sekai Project is currently managing a number of localization projects in active development. Please note that we have contracted with separate and distinct localization teams to handle each of these projects - progress should be smooth on all fronts, with no conflicts.

We understand that we have a responsibility to deliver a finished product in exchange for your pledges. We'll be working closely with Frontwing and our localization team to make sure that happens.
