    If they keep it as Fumizuki, I think that it would be okay to use it without "Academy" added to it.
    Though having Fumizuki appear during its first mention as "Fumizuki Academy" might be better if it is possible.
    Also, if I am correct, proper nouns normally stay mostly the same even when translated.

    If they did go with "July Academy", they could probably just abbreviate it.

    With the example of "Computer School", since "computer" is recognized as a common noun that would be somewhat odd to see by itself, but it could still work since it is "Computer" rather than "computer", which shows that it is being used as a proper noun rather than as a common noun.
    Also, people often use the names of organizations without anything else (e.g. Harvard, Yale, and Princeton; Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo) and still know what they are.

    With "July Academy" however, it is more complicated, as July is already a proper noun that commonly refers to a month and so could possibly cause confusion.
    Though, as I said, they could just go with a shorter form of it.

    Since, well i havent played the baka to test portable game, this is just based on assumption, but in the prologue it would be logical for them to have said Fumizuki Academy, again, this is just based off assumption, but if it does tell you that in the prologue, all of this wouldnt really be an issue because then everyone would have been given the context of what they used Fumizuki for...... just an example: This is Fumizuki Academy, one of the worlds finest prep schools "baka to test, season 1, episode 1, litterally the 1st thing they say," will then give them the right context of the word, and would stop all of this pointless debate XD.
    All i can say, is wait for me to watch the prologue video and ill see if this theory solves it (if you havent already)





    .-. it doesnt.. fuuuuuuuu******

    That is unfortunate.
    When is Fumizuki first mentioned in the game though?

    This does not have to do with the translation, but the complete dvd set is now out! I'm hoping I can track down the mini anime so I can finally see it!

    The translator probably has other obligations. also, the actual process might be very time consuming.

    I responded to someone's PM, so I decided I should post this here too so everyone could get an update:

    Sorry for not having any real new progress, but I really do want to get this done. Thanks again for all your patience and support, even though I've kept you all waiting this long!

    Just stumbled upon this project by chance.
    I'm glad to see its still alive although its on the backburner given RL takes priority for most of us.
    Anyways, keep up the good work and we are here supporting you if you need encouragement or any type of help we can give if possible :P
    Just give us a little update every few months at least so we can cheer each time lol
