Sotsugyou (Graduation) is a big series. With a good number of sequels and spin-offs.

I am making this post to see if we could standardize the name of the titles/products because it's a bit confusing at the moment.

The original Japanese name of the game is "卒業 ~Graduation~".. 卒業 is romanized Sotsugyou, but is translated as Graduation.. so if we translate everything it makes "Graduation Graduation".. which sounds a bit silly.

I don't think there was a game that was localized outside Japan. So we should not translate it and keep the "Sotsugyou" romanization.

Some spin-offs does not have the english "graduation" in the Japanese title (ex: Sotsugyou Crossword). These games should not be called Graduation at all (maybe in the alternative title)

So, i propose to standardize all the albums with the following title "Sostugyou Graduation" (or "Sostugyou ~Graduation~).

What do you guys think?

I wonder if Graduation isn't the furigana for Sotsugyou and I even wonder if it's not the same thing for Tanjou ~Debut~ which could be just Debut since there is a game named DEBUT 21 (without tanjou this time)
