It’s been a while since I updated on anything related to Re:Birthday Song/ Un:Birthday Song. But It’s almost been two years since I released this patch (March 16th 2017 aka my birthday was the day I released it). So this is kinda, sorta… anniversary commemoration?
Also RIP honeybee (well for now) they’re under a different company but I feel bad for the fact there may or not be future game projects. I honestly really enjoyed Re:Birthday Song and when I first played it I cried my eyes out (Syun was such a perfect, syunberry). Ayakashi Gohan was another one of my favorites (Yomi was the best kthx). Well, anyway, my laziness the the reason I never released this ‘append patch’. It consists of pretty short (but super cute) stories with every guy. It literally took me one day to translate
(so if my lazy ass just bothered with it, I would’ve posted it sooner looool) this which honestly impresses me because I think when I first started translating Re:Birthday Song, I went at the speed of a snail (even with other translators).
First of all, the append patch originally comes with the stella set (? I think??) of Re:Birthday Song. Honestly, this is the stupidest thing to me because while paying a hefty price for a limited edition, you have something (similar to buying DLC) that can’t be obtained otherwise?? Doesn’t make sense to me. Which is why I have no qualms posting it here. As for the directions its pretty simple. Just open the Append.iso and then the setup.exe which will install the patch onto (the already installed) Re:Birthday song. After that, you’ll notice new files such as ‘Rio+.arc’ & ‘Voice+.arc’ replace the Rio+.arc with the new translated one that I provided in the folder. Also, don’t play these until you completed that said route. The stories are in the LI point of view, and they do spoil some things I think?
As for Un:Birthday Song, as much as I’d like to pretend I’ve made a lot of progress, I honestly haven’t really. I’ve been busy these past couple years because I started school not long after I finished Re:Birthday Song. I can’t guarantee when I’ll release a patch for this game, but I will say that it is shorter and would take as less time. However, I’m only one person and doing translating + pr + programming is very time consuming and I don’t have all the time to do that. So, if you’re interested in helping translating scripts, go ahead and shoot me a message. Otherwise, it’ll be slow sailing from there. And for the translation progress it’s self, I’d say I was about half through the common route.

Anyway, also big thanks to those who played my translation. It was my first project and I know there’s typos on there too (I never fixed it but alas, this is a non-profit project and I am without time to do so). When I took on this project years ago, I had soooo much free time. And then I realized, woah, fan-translations are brutal esp when you don’t have motivation for something you don’t get paid for (the harsh truth). However, I was glad to do something that is happy hobby of mine and I don’t regret it.
So, because it’s been two years since I released this patch and I never really discussed it AT ALL. Let me know what you liked or didn’t like about the game, who your favorite characters were, ect. in the comments if you like. My favorite character was Syun and I’m still to this day annoyed at Honeybee for
not giving him the kiss CG he deserved. So happy anniversary to my patch release. Thank you so much for all the support.
