Hideaki is a character the devs created for KS.
She's new in the sense that she had no sprite in Act 1.

There is an art, it says, or rather a knack to flying.
The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

As a side character. I can not guess how prominent they will be. Everyone will just have to wait and see. :wink:

Just messing with you. :lol:

When you step back a bit all we have seen so far is one set of sprites. We have just the text shown to develop an idea about the character. One sentence is very little to go on to try and extrapolate an entire character from. So, what is it that everyone considers when they make their judgement about Hideaki? The artists execution of the sprites? (Yep, Hideaki is drawn cute.) Are people mainly considering Hideaki's percieved gender? (I'd bet male crossdressing as female, but I would not call it totaly impossible for Hideaki to be an EXTREMELY underdeveloped female. I won't go into the name because I'm too ignorant of japanese nameing conventions.)

Whatever, them there dang Devs sure are keeping us barking at the moon with a whole lotta noise over just a little bit of light and shadows. :lol:

The only thing I considered was I-would-not-tap-anyone-that-has-a-pen0r.

Concerning Hideaki's gender, I kind of assumed he was male cross-dressing as female, mainly based on name. Not naming conventions, but precedence -- Hideaki Anno was the psychotic *dude* that somehow managed to come up with Eva. :P

Oh yeah, they're good at that... those bastards... those clever, clever, bastards I would never actually seriously insult because I love this game. :lol:

Speaking of games.
YOU ALL JUST LOST THEM.

All in all, you're right Bara, there's not much to go on. The result could (and probably will) be that Hideaki ends up being a very likable character. Guess we'll just have to wait. (For the record: ambiguous and controversial teasers do NOT help the waiting. FYI devs. :wink:)

I think that choosing Hakamichi or Satou will have an indirect effect on the storyline of Akira and her trap.

I think Hakamichi = they break up
Satou = stay together

Sometimes I get the feeling that Hideaki is actually a girl, and the developers are just messing with us by making us think she's a crossdressing guy... I'm going to reserve judgment on the matter until I have some clear evidence from the game itself. XD

Well we already know the artists can draw a cute crossdresser from seeing Akira and possibly/probably Hideaki. What I'm realy interested in is what they will do with the two characters. I think we'll definately see something different from both of them than your normal trap stereotype. (Ok, lets stereotype anyway: Who do you think owns more shoes; Akira, the female dressing as a male, or Hideaki, the male dressing as a woman? Would a hot date between them involve spending 9 hours shopping for shoes?) :lol:
(In the interest of fairness I have to point out that every time I ask my girlfriend why she needs more shoes; she asks me why I need more socket sets, drills, hammers, screwdrivers, laser levels, saws, box/crescent/pipe wrenches. At that point I have to shut up cause I'm guity as sin; I never saw I tool I didn't lust after.) :oops:

You just had to say that. Now the path writters are busy re-writting the paths to make Hideaki a girl. :lol:
