Anyone find it interesting, the only time you see the PC..

(Playable character)

Is when you're with Lilly? I would say symbolic...but...hm. If it wasn't intentional, than hmm >_> But if it was, it took me a while to notice it.

No. You also see Hisao during the opening scene with Iwanako.

Well, yeah, so you know how your PC looks, and you also see him in the opening title, but afterwards the only time you see him is with Lilly >_> I think you missed the point..

Does Hisao have any sprites? For like, if the perspective shifts to one of the girls or whatever.

You also see him with Kenji, who can see. (albeit badly) I'm not certain what point it is you're seeing, but there's a possibility that you're seeing a point where there isn't one.

There's no point.

Hisao is in a reasonable number of the game's CGs; Act 1 just doesn't show many of them. This was a decison based on the fact that we want Hisao to be seen less as a player avatar, and more as a genuine character in the setting.

To put it simpily Hiaso appears more than most main guys in visual novels, alot of them you never actually see except for the sex scenes and even then you only see the lower half or their face isn't completely there so you really don't know what your character looks like. Plain and simple Hiaso is already leaps and bounds ahead of most main guys in visual novels.

Hisao really isn't an iconic sort of guy, his reactions are everyman. The reason you don't see him in every single CG scene is because for the most part he doesn't really have any spectacular reaction.

Now, if he were this guy, on the other hand...

Yeah.

I can see the resemblance, though. Even if he doesn't look like he's off to perform bloody murder and serial rape like good ol' Rance.
