Confessions – Who and How?

Post by AapoAlas » Fri Jan 07, 2011 7:07 pm

This briefing was written the night the servers started bugging. I couldn't be arsed to change them. Topic isn't affected by it.

Since it's past 2 am and I have to get up at 8 and since we already have quite a lot of topics speculating about stuff happening in the full game, stuff you want to happen in the game et cetera and because I just got confessed to via email I thought I'd put up a new topic for us to enjoy.

Basically, with each of the five main girls (and side characters if you wish to explore romances with them in your thoughts), who do you think will be the one confessing his / her love to the other and how?
Will it be our broken hearted hero, fazing even Death himself by putting his life on the line in order to say those all too important words for his one and only?
Or will it be the heroine, possibly still not knowing what kind of a danger she's putting Hisao in?

Most importantly, sort of, how will it be done? Kneeling in front of her? Singing a song because plain words simply aren't enough to convey the depths of a human heart? Possibly in his / her death throes, not knowing if they'll see each other ever again in this world, wanting to make sure the dearest one knows what it all meant?
Let your hopes, dreams and imagination run wild to envision the perfect way Hisao and X should end up confessing to each other. (Don't take me too literarly, I'd love to see some "Fail!" ideas too.)


Without that much further ado, I'll try to come up with something.

Hisao / Rin: I think Rin will be the one confessing, but mostly just... nonchalantly. Probably admist painting something, Hisao either helping with the actual painting or with the "usual stuff" from Act 1. She'll just look at him a bit quizically for a moment, then just open up her mouth and blurt out something like: "I might happen to love you."
Another fun idea which especially Hisao might use is to stick up a painting somewhere that Rin will see it saying: "I love you" or maybe just depicting a heart. Possibly with a band-aid on it.

Hisao / Hanako: Definetly Hisao confessing. I'm guessing it won't be in the tea room, probably somewhere outside, in the evening. It'll be real tense, Hisao trying to keep hold of himself and his heart, Hanako freezing onto the spot and possibly somewhat panicing about how nobody should ever be able to love her or whatnot.


O'well, that's all I'll come up with for now, your turn!
Nothing to be seen here. Do check out my little dabbling in the art of words, though.

You know, for the Hisao/Hanako part, I always thought that Hanako would confess since this might be a sign of growth and reliance on someone other than Lily. Or it could be confrontational since Hanako is probably some kind of worry wort and might be in panic mode whenever Hisao is or isn't around, which would lead to a mini-investigation as to why she is doing so leading to a climatic "I Love You" from Hanako. But that's just my opinion.

Hisao/Emi: Figuring how energetic Emi is, her. But she might be shy about this so who knows for this one.

Lily: Hisao is probably going to confess here. She has that air of patience and making sure she doesn't reveal too much in case something bad happens. So, Hisao is going to have to step up to the plate.

Rin: Actually, I pretty much agree with the first post here.

Shizune: The way I imagine this is, they both know that the other loves each other. However, since Shizune sees everything like a competition, she doesn't say anything. This ignites Hisao's desire to compete and they stall this out for a while. Then, somehow, Shizune finally gives up and says a confession, thus ending the debacle and having her first loss. And the prize is a kiss.

Misha: She jumps him and impregnates him with her drill hair. Or visa versa.
I'm not good with this sort of thing, so I"m just going to say it here:
Thank you, Four Leaf Studios.

That is all.

Rin: Hisao could just as easily be the one confessing. He spends the whole day steeling himself for it, his heart pounding with deadly force, he finally has the courage to admit what she means to him, and she just replies "I know. Pass me that red."

Alternatively, she confesses in painting form, though Rin's art seems a little abstract for that.

Kenji: Drunken sobbing ambush after Hisao confesses/is confessed to. Some more insight into what the hell is wrong with him.

Rin : for some reason I see Rin going into a slump and being unable to paint, and (as unlikely as it seems... it is Rin after all) ranting/angry at Hisao, and blurting out that she loves him somewhere inbetween random Rin-ness..

Emi : hmm... probably after Hisao nearly cacks it (for the umpteenth hundred time) on the track

Hisao/Lilly: Lilly confesses. In a calm, quiet voice while Hisao is talking about a total opposite thing. He will fully open his eyes and wtf man, she really said it! I'm so hap- NNNNNG *finally dies*
And here comes the bad ending. Anyway, I really think this, Lilly for me is the type.
Hisao/Shizune: She confesses, doing some strange moves with her hands and, angry because Hisao doesn't understand, pulls him toward her face and kisses him.

I'd imagine Hisao would pick up some sort of signing skills in shizunes arc, but she would be the man in the relationship

I predict Rin just forcing herself on Hisao depending on how you respond to her initial advance of "hey wanna fuck?"

I also thought about the skills, but because she's embarassed and feels unconfortable her movements are too much fast to be understood. It could even be that Hisao confesses, at first Shisune is the boss of the two but after time she makes him grow and be less easy to let himself down, but I see her to say it better.

I think it'd be awesome if Hanako confessed first, but it'd have to be some major development for her before she does. I mean, the way the demo ends, with her actually wanting to spend time with Hisao, I know that's a big step, so she'd have to be really comfortable with him before confessing. and she'd have to, y'know, not be worried that he'd reject her. big steps, but if she confessed, it'd probably be so damn cute that there'd be a wave of heart attacks among KS fans on the Hanako path. :mrgreen:

Emi... it's really hard to say. thing is, her path hardly even feels romantic at all to me - with the other girls, it's like, you can tell they like Hisao at least a little, but Emi starts acting so much like the bratty little sister in the final part that it's hard to say if she feels anything for Hisao at all, or just sees him as a healthy-making project. so I've got no idea. I could totally see her bad end being Hisao confessing and her giving him the "friends" line.

it's kinda hard for me to see Lilly confessing first, but I think she'd be really good at dropping hints or something, so Hisao would know how she felt before he did the confessing first. she could surprise me, though. her ending showed that she can be playful, so who knows.

like some other people here have said, Rin's confession would probably come up in normal conversation and be treated with the same nonchalance she treats almost everything else. then she'd bring it up, like, two days later, when Hisao figures she forgot about it, and they'd have a talk about what love really is and if paintings feel loved by the people who look at them. and then they'd have sex.

and I think Shizune's actually going to surprise a lot of us. I don't know why, but I've got this weird feeling that she wouldn't be the same with relationships that she is with everything else - I don't think she'd see them as a competition, more like teamwork. like, if she knows she wants to be with someone, she wants them to conquer the world together. she'd still be queen, but you get the idea. hell, that might be how she confesses - signing "I'm going to rule the world someday, and I want you to be there with me."

what I think would be interesting is if the paths turned out a little different based on if Hisao confesses first or the girls do. like, just some different dialogue, but it's still noticeable - their attitude changes about some things if they had to say they love you first. I dunno, this sounded better in my head and now I can't remember how I was going to put it. but you get the idea. :shock:

amazing how preference changes now that the game's actually out.
Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Hisao is definitely gonna learn signing, I can't think of any other way how he can form a relationship with Shizune, without Misha interrupting...
Or is this going to be some kind of Misha-Shizune-Combi-Arc? I think I've heard that there aren't any Combi-Arcs... but I'm not sure.

The devs have been pretty good about following the few suggestions in the original Raita sketch, one of which says you have to learn to sign to romance the deaf girl. This would also imply that Hisao confesses to Hanako instead of vice-versa.

Oh, I am actually not so sure. It would be way more tricky if a girl confesses her love to Hisao, and the player has to make a choice if he wants to be her friend or if he still roots for another girl... But this is of course pure guesswork.
