Seinarukana -The Spirit of Eternity Sword 2- is is a Japanese visual novel / SRPG developed by Xuse (Honjouzou) in 2007. It is the direct sequel of Eien no Aselia -The Spirit of Eternity Sword-.
Seinarukana tells the tale of Nozomu, a regular high school student who is troubled by a recurring nightmare lately, and his friends. While they were preparing for the upcoming festival, their school gets attacked by strangely dressed girls bearing swords and spears. After the ensuing chaos they find themselves, the whole school including the buildings, on another world. This story is about how their search for a way home takes impossible turns that would carry them through many worlds, conflicts and even wars.

Project started between the editing staff of Dakkodango's Eien no Aselia translation. Successfully extracted the game's images using Asmodean's tools from 2007. Formed the SVN and image translation pages. While we were able to extract all images that needed editing this way, 2243 of them, the tools were only able to successfully insert a small number of them and we didn't have any of the scripts yet.

NightEye159, that some might recognize for his earlier translations and summaries for the games of this series including Seinarukana, joined as the translator. Translation and editing of images started.

As stated in the Pre-AX Roundup: Coming Attractions announcement by Jast USA, our project is a part of their Jast Densetsu line up now. Based on their acquisition of our previous localization work on Aselia the Eternal earlier this year, this shouldn't come as a surprise to most people.

Started on Chapter 10 now, the largest chapter script-wise. Most of the actual route stuff starts here, so it sure is huge.

Since Renko was away/busy for most of the time, there haven't been much progress this year. To remedy this:
February 1st, 2013
A new translator has been found and is making decent progress. In the interests of consistency and overall quality, the new translator is overhauling the old translators' work before completing the translation. There have also been some changes to the rest of the staff.
