Me and my friends would gather in my basement, pop the legal purchased DVD into the DVD player, and watch, over and over again until it's burned until our minds.

If the japs make a series off it I would certainly be amazed, not sure If I would watch it though since I could just play KS instead. It would have to be something special that really adds to the series, like it it was 24 episodes of Lilly. I would buy the special edition box set for that.

This is probably the way it would have to happen to come out well.

I'm thinking it might work best to do it as OVA rather than TV so you don't have to be linear on the endings like the video release of "Clue". You have the starter arc to get familiar then you have the 5 additional arcs (each on its own DVD) that can be watched entirely independent. Hell, you could even have the Kenji end as omake lol. You'd also avoid issues with broadcast limitations or episode requirements.

All that's missing is a bag of pretzels and a bottle of whiskey.

You could replace Whiskey with pot and get the relatively same effect, if not better.

Accidentally, it wouldn't be Misha which was first met :lol:? Misha - "true ending" girl :lol:

Iwanako ending CONFIRMED! :roll:
Guess I worded it too literal. What I mean is, the first girl you meet who actually has a route in the game, but I'm sure you realized what I was getting at with it.

I feel sullied...
To think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral down into ever-increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that training is about.

Well there are quite a few anime based on western literature, but KS turning into an anime would still be world implosion worthy.

Also I'd laugh if it was turned into a guro H OVA.

Now I got this idea in my head of something resembling "Love Hina", but at a school instead of an inn... :shock:

*wanders off to look for an animator...*

Why would you want KS to have an anime? Shows based on VNs are more often than not total shit.

That would be delicious. I'm counting on you, Japan.

You brought up a good point here. Unlike most other VN stories out there, which girl exactly is the canon girl? I was honestly surprised that no one has made a thread about this yet.

If I were to just go by my gut I would say Shizune feels like the most canon of all of them due mostly in part to how her role in shaping Hisao's world develops just in the first act. With all other girls, Hisao is the one taking the initiave, but Shizune is different. She's the one who giving Hisao courage after he suffers his arrhythmia during the festival.

That's the clearest distinction I can draw to seperate her from the rest, even though I'd want to see the Hanako and Rin routes the most. Then again, the Higurashi parallel that was drawn... very good idea.

I hope more people give their input on this.
