In what will perhaps go down as the biggest announcement from Anime Central 2022, Irotoridori no Sekai is alive. To clarify, you may have heard of this title before. You’re not alone. This title was a part of a Kickstarter campaign by a company of the name Sol Press. It was notorious for going down to the last second to reaching its $85,000 goal. It has the help of 873 backers, self-included. While it seemed like all is well with development, Sol Press went under. It’s one of the biggest scandals in the visual novel localization circle in ages. All of its visual novel titles no longer exist major storefronts and a Kickstarter is in the dust. That is, until today, when NekoNyan announced a revival of the localization. Furthermore, at 100% Translation and Editing! It’s looking more and more likely that we’ll finally experience emotionally devastation.
We are ecstatic to announce our final announcement for this convention is one that is near and dear to NekoNyan and important to our history as a company. This announcement is Irotoridori no Sekai, also known as Irosekai! pic.twitter.com/mWTwI15E27

So what’s Irotoridori no Sekai about? Why the hype?
Our story follows Kanoue Yuuma, an amnesiac boy with a special power, and Nikaidou Shinku, a translucent girl only visible to Yuuma who gave him that power. With it, he can heal any and all wounds.
But it comes at the cost of the memories he’s made. He lives a simple life: going to school and being scolded by his childhood friend, Kisaragi Mio, by day, and working with his master, Natsume Suzu, in the evenings.
However, whenever he falls asleep, he always sees the same dream… a white world, feathers falling, and a girl calling out for him to save her.
The student dormitory his master resides in has a special door in the basement, which connects their world to a myriad of different parallel ones. He travels from world to world, searching for one which resembles the scenery he sees in his dreams, but to no avail.
Then, one night, as he’s out at night strolling around town, he spots a girl jumping from the lighthouse. Yuuma rushes over and heals her using his power, but after coming to, the girl claims to know him and his power, and asks him much like the voice in his dreams:
“Please save me, Kanoue Yuuma.”
