Updates for Starry☆Sky ~ After Spring~
So, as the title says, this post is for an update, which I haven’t done in a looooong time. First, I should’ve made it more clear that we’re translating Starry Sky ~ After Spring ~… now now, fans who are waiting for ~In Summer~ please don’t be disappointed (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞ There’s still hope for that, but AFTER we’re done with this project first! (I’m not promising anything, I’m not the only person in the group, and finding translators ain’t an easy task. But hey, what meant to be translated will be translated… . . Okaaaay enough with my non-sense *ahem* ( ≧Д≦) )
As for progress, the common route is done translated and currently under editing. All the guys’ routes (Kanata, Yoh, Suzuya) and the Special route are almost done. Expect it soon… I hope… o(〃＾▽＾〃)o
Thanks for your patience and stay tuned for updates :)

The kingdom of Razileth had once plunged the world into darkness. In those dark times, heroes emerged and defeated the rulers of the kingdom, leaving it in ruins.
Many magical spells were lost after the kingdom’s destruction. One of the most powerful spells was the Cleansing Circle. This magical prison had been used to cleanse prisoners of evil thoughts and impurities.
Fifty years after the kingdom’s downfall, one young man unearths the lost art of the Cleansing Circle and releases the prisoners inside. Feeling brainwashed instead of cleansed, the prisoners strive to reverse the effects of the cleansing magic.
This is an otome visual novel where the main character develops a romantic relationship with one of the male characters.
This visual novel also features an interactive story where player choices determine the ending of the story.
