Oh well, at least it's got a cool opening. Probably indicates a cool game. Got a question though, will you leave the engrish on the title or will you change it to something a little less odd like "What Beautiful People" or something like that?
What a beautiful people, isn't engrish.. English is weird, either phrase should be fine in this instance though.
Adding What a beautiful people, places more emphasis however; or adds more formality than say, What beautiful people (which sounds more vernacular/you might hear in conversation or maybe colloquial/informal... )
I'd definitely stick with "What a beautiful people"... it fits the atmosphere better...
Now one of the upcoming Liar-Soft games is titled... Hikari no Valcia ~What a beautiful hopes~
That's engrish lol (should be what a beautiful hope or what beautiful hopes/hope)
I'm hyped about the chosen game though...! I didn't know anything about the game previously to the final poll, but I instantly fell for it from the choices presented. The opening was perfect to catch my attention, and I liked what I read about it. It sounds like one of the shorter visual novels, but it should be full of interesting language, sights and story. Haven't checked out the voice actors yet.
It actually reminded me of Speed Grapher, which I personally liked a lot, (despite having a pretty limited amount of animation (budget?)).
Also reminds me of Odin Sphere, Princess Tutu, Rosen Maiden... Won't know if it's really good or not until it's translated though!
But, Ixrec said he had already been playing it/just played it, and enjoyed it so the choice was too perfect. (So it sounds like it'll be good!)
Just for fun here's the Opening again if you missed it, and the opening for the next game that takes place in the same setting... Both are very good openings I think...
