Nanatsuiro★Drops Gets Partial Fan Translation of Two First Chapters


Doki Fansubs has released a partial translation patch for the fantasy eroge and visual novel, Nanatsuiro★Drops,covering the first two chapters of the game.

Fan translation group Doki Fansubs has finished the translation of two common route chapters for Unison Shift: Blossom's fantasy visual novel and eroge Nanatsuiro★Drops. Nanatsuiro★Drops originally released in 2006 in Japan and spawned anime, light novel, and manga series and even several all-ages ports for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS.

Be sure to look below for more details on the game's story and characters.

Story:

Masaharu Tsuwabuki is a normal student, though not very social. One day he meets a new student named Sumomo Akihime, and another girl named Yaeno Nadeshiko, Sumomo's close friend. That same afternoon, he suddenly bumps into Arthur, a servant of Nona Yuki from Figurare who at the time was disguised with a mask. The collision causes Arthur to drop a bag full of magical potions; amid gathering up the scattered cans, one of them is accidentally switched with Masaharu's soda can. Upon drinking it, he transforms into a stuffed animal lamb at night. He must collect seven stardrops, in order to return to normal.

There are two primary worlds within the story of Nanatsuiro Drops: the human world called Retroscena, and a magical world called Figurare from which the Stellar Spinners originate. There are currently two schools that teach magic within Figurare: Pramu Cloris and Saint Asparas. According to Natsume, each year the two schools pick their top Stellar Spinners (the one from Pramu Cloris is called Prima Pramu, and from Saint Asparas is called Prima Asparas) to send to the human world to capture seven stardrops in a goodwill competition to improve relations.


Characters:

Tsuwabuki Masaharu

A quiet boy who rarely talks to anyone, including his friends. In the beginning of the game, he bumps into Sumomo Akihime, causing her to splash him with water. After the accident, he is inducted into the Gardening Club by Natsume Kisaragi. Later, he receives a mysterious beverage when he bumps into Arthur disguised at the time, who was carrying a bag full of potions, causing them to switch cans, which transforms Masaharu into a stuffed lamb doll. Kisaragi finds him and applies a second potion, allowing him to move and talk. In order to change back, he must work with his partner, "his chosen girl", who happens to be Sumomo. In order to change back, he must collect seven stardrops without telling her his true identity. It is revealed later on that the transformation potion is tied to phases of the moon. During the day he reverts to his human form, but just after sunset he changes to his stuffed animal form.


Akihime Sumomo

A cute yet shy girl who tends only to talk to her close friend Nako. She is a Stellar Spinner, a sort of stardrop collecting magician who is revealed to be a human replacement for one who became ill and was not able to come to the human world to collect the stardrops.

She has a deep crush on Masaharu, and though she has him for a partner in collecting the stardrops, she is unaware of his true identity. She has a very non-confrontational attitude, and when she meets Masaharu in his stuffed animal form, she names him "Yuki-chan" (because it sounds cute) and insists he use the word "boku" (僕) to refer to himself instead of the more boastful, and manly "ore" (俺). She is very shy around water and is unable to swim, but soon learns to overcome it when a stardrop falls into a pool. Sumomo is a replacement Stellar Spinner of the Prima Pramu school.


Yaeno Nadeshiko

"Nako-chan", as she is referred to by Sumomo, is Sumomo's closest friend. While innocently out for a walk, she discovers Sumomo's job as a Stellar Spinner. According to the rules of the collection game, as explained by Natsume, anyone who discovers the identity of a Stellar Spinner (other than her partner) must have their memory erased. Unable to accept this, Sumomo insists on finding another way. Eventually it is discovered that a one-time spell can be cast that binds the Stellar Spinner and one close friend together such that the friend's memory need not be erased. Though the decision was made quickly, Natsume reminds Sumomo and Masaharu that this can only be done once and since this one-time allowance has been made, they will have to be very careful from now on. Being the observant girl she is, Nadeshiko discovered Nona's role as a Stellar Spinner when she put on her human glasses while in her Stellar Spinner form.


Yuuki Nona

Another Stellar Spinner, but one from Figurare. Presumably this is her first time in the human world, hence her confusion with certain simple tasks such as washing rice (which she confuses for "sharpening" it due to both words using the same kanji). She is an expert spell-caster and quite proficient at capturing stardrops. Her power level in the beginning far exceeds Sumomo's, as evidenced by her telling Sumomo to try to touch her "recipe" (her spellbook). Sumomo is shocked by it and unable to grasp it. They later develop a friendly rivalry, as well as shared feelings for Masaharu. Nona is the top Stellar Spinner from the Prima Asparas school. Later, she joins Masaharu and Sumomo's school to study the human world; we discover that she altered her appearance so she can attempt to blend in that's why her human appearance is different than her stellar form.
