April Update

That’s right folks, it’s time for another exciting bimonthly announcement, this time in conjunction with the Enid Blyton Society! For those unlucky few who don’t know, Enid Blyton is a British children’s author from the 50s, whose delightful novels amused middle class children for generations. Many of her stories involved youngsters having adventures, accusing foreign-looking types of being smugglers, and teaching Americans how to talk properly. However, her books aren’t selling as well as they used to, and now the Enid Blyton Society has turned to visual novels to keep the spirit of Blyton alive in today’s youth.

So it is with great pleasure that I unveil to you: AIR –The Enid Blyton Edition-! Now you too can enjoy the Japanese characters and setting you love, with the retro language you or your distant British cousins grew up with. Here are some screenshots to whet your appetite!

Of course, we understand that not everyone will be happy with this new, vintage interpretation of KEY’s classic VN. So we’ll be producing a second version just for all you Americans out there: AIR –The ‘Murrica Edition-!


Look forward to it sometime in 2014!

  7. I actually live in Texas, where dialogue like that 'Murrica edition is not so far from how some people actually talk.. needless to say, this made me practically fall out of my chair from laughter. XD One of the funniest April Fools jokes I've ever seen~ Looking forward to playing AIR. =3

    1. Ahhh, sorry I took so long to reply! Your comment didn't show up in my email for some reason...

      Be sure to high-five anyone who says "Gnarlatious". It's my new favourite (weird) word.
