Hi there! I'm Neru. Thank you so much for clicking this thread!
A more complete document for my services are in this LINK. Thank you.

Writing: 1 out of 2
Proofreading: 1 out of 2
Editing: 1 out of 2

I'm looking to work as a proofreader/editor for free! Yes, the wonderful price of free! However, since I've graduated from uni and am still in the process of fixing my documents before looking for a job, I've plenty of free time and am now offering paid services to get work done faster + help out with my living expenses. I've had a fair amount of experience working on VNs as a proofreader and editor. I do writing as a hobby, and I absolutely love spending time playing visual novels and otome games as well.

If you would ever consider having me as a part of your team or project, I do have a list of preferences below:

Preferred genres (but not strictly limited to):
  • Adventure
  • Mystery
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
I'm always open to plenty of ideas though, so feel free to talk to me about it!

I'm fine with (as long as they are NOT the main point of the story):
  • R-18 scenes
  • Gore and blood
  • Depictions of violence if you have a very mature plot/story
Please do note that if you have these concepts (R-18, gore, etc) in your story, I humbly request that I be informed prior to starting on it. I will have to see content warnings and such so that I know if I can handle the content your project may have.

I also take small writing projects, but please remember: I will prioritize proofreading and editing requests first.

Please do check this document here for a more detailed discussion about my services, current schedule, terms and conditions explained, slots available, as well as what each service entails.
STATUS: Limited Slots, OPEN (see availability here)
Projects I've Worked On:
  1. BAKED:MAGIC (LSF thread,
  2. Winter’s Symphonies by LeafCascade (Steam, VNDB link)
  3. Homecoming - Stop At Nothing! by Blackcross & Taylor (LSF thread, - proofreading
  4. BAKED:MAGIC Artbook by Red-Baby ( direct link) - proofreading

  6. Heaven’s Grave by Blackcross & Taylor ( - proofreading
  7. A Summer with the Shiba Inu by Quill Studios ( - proofreading
  8. In the World of Nightmares (demo) by nerupuff ( - writing, programming
  • I will still be offering the free service. Donations/tips are very much appreciated if you avail free service and are satisfied with the work (see ko-fi)
  • Paid editing and proofreading will follow prioritized stricter deadlines and faster rate of completion.
  • Please consider: free service is available only for non-commercial projects. Commercial projects will always fall on paid services.
  • Proofreading costs $30* per 15,000 words, with additional $7 per 2500 words in excess ($30 is base price, whether or not your file reaches 15k words) *(0.002/word)
  • Editing costs $45* per 15,000 words, additional $10 per 2500 words in excess ($45 is base price, whether or not your file reaches 15k words) *(0.003/word)
  • Writing costs $0.01/word, minimum 2000 words

I can highly recommend Neru to proofread your work!
Neru helped out with BAKED:MAGIC and not only are they incredibly fast and efficient but also very professional and overall just a great person to work with.

^Thank you, Red! ^^ It was great working with you.

Also, hello, everyone! It's been 2 months! I'm glad to say that I finally have one completed project that I've listed up on the main post in this thread. I've updated the post and I've also included a link to a more comprehensive document of mine that discusses my proofreading and editing services for VN dev. Please do have a look!

I have some projects underway but I definitely still have some slots for anyone who needs proofreading and editing done for their VN projects. I always update the title tag on this thread so you will know if I am OPEN or CLOSED for requests. I also update the main post regularly even if I don't reply to the thread (I check LSF quite often!), so you may also see changes/updates on the main post in the future.

Thank you so much, and til next time!

Wow, Neru is so amazing!!! I would recommend her but she will be extremely busy soon. She was very professional, fast, and spotted so many corrections and offered great improvements to my writing. I felt that I could take her advice and continue to implement what she offered throughout my story. If you hire her to edit your story, you will not regret. She has great eye for mistakes and offers writing advice I would not have thought of.

Thanks again Neru for the awesome and speedy service :)

^Thank you so much for the kind review, vchan! I wish you luck with completing your project.

Also, hello, everyone! I've finally updated my post here with all the new projects I've helped with. It's been a few months since my last post here, and I'm glad that I still get some requests from time to time. My services are still free, and I currently have 1 slot available for proofreading (but only until the end of the month)!

New updates also include my google doc (here) listing my writing samples for further reference. Another thing is that I have removed my Discord contact on the original post: you'll only be able to contact me on Discord AFTER you have contacted me via PM or email.

You may have noticed on my list that I also do proofreading for VN-related material, so feel free to hit me up about those kinds of things too. The keyword is that it should still be related to games/VNs, since that's my particular area of interest.

Again, I often update my tag and content on the original post, so please check in on it from time to time. Thanks for reading!

Hi, everyone! It's been a long 5 months but I am happy to say that I am now back and available to work on more VN projects. :)

I've updated my document to reflect the new changes as well, but here's a TLDR:
- I'm now offering paid services (just graduated, taking time off to rest before looking for a job related to my degree program, plenty of time to work on games, help me finance my living expenses yay)
- Free services are still available, added a ko-fi in case you would like to donate (totally voluntary!)
- Updated the available slots, so please check it out in case you want to hire me!
- VNs and VN-related material are welcome
- I always update the first post, so please check back from time to time!

Thank you!
