The world ends tomorrow – v1.2 Translation Released!


It’s the evening before the end of the world, and Sumire’s spending it with her big sister, Azami. But will she be able to convey her true feelings before it’s all over?


The world ends tomorrow is a short yuri visual novel originally released by Natsukon, who those of… amber, eclectic tastes may know for their rather different title Yurinate!. No need to worry about anything lewd in TWET though, bar handholding I suppose. Ahem.

I started the translation a few million years ago when I was but a baby who had like 1 year of Japanese experience; it took me hilariously long to get to pre-edit status after… more than one translation pass. As my TLC, Vokoca was a big help in interpreting difficult scenes and suggesting less weeb ways of writing certain things. It’s harder than you’d think, as both characters are speaking very vaguely about a certain something for an extended stretch, and there are some pretty ambiguous passages.

Then I got it all in a sheet, let Fred at it, and proceeded to be too emotionally attached to making it perfect to finalize the lines for like 2 years. Oops!

It’s not like Fred’s edit was bad; he really helped make the text flow smoothly. There are a few lines that I decided to re-do when I finally finalized the script; if anything sticks out to you as bad, it’s not unlikely that it’s one I touched.

And last but not least, I got Konu to help me with editing the UI as I talked about the translation in Verde’s kami tier discord. Without Konu’s freely offered aid, I probably would have released with them unedited; I really owe her, especially given how short TWET is.


Yes, the first public version is 1.2. Deal with it. Also #freepalestine

    1. I’m sorry, Japanese unicode turning my backslash into the Yen sign has brainwashed me. Will repent at the Shrine of Localization posthaste.
