Who took the background photos for KS and where are they from?

Various people in various locations. Most photos of the school are from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, taken by yujovi. The photos of the suburbs and the city are mostly from Tokyo, Kamakura and Sendai, Japan, taken by crud and me. Everything else is by us three, other devs or our friends in our respective geographic locations. For instance, the snowy park in the opening scene and the hill Rin takes Hisao to are both in Helsinki, Finland.

Here's a bit of a odd question. Who is the girl in the background? Some one asked this a while back on a KS Facebook page. Seeing how she does not quite fit in with the other students with her umbrella and white dress. I got curious for the answer. If there even is one.

(Also, someone added glasses to Misha in this one.)

What were the developers' favorite music tracks from the game?

Who's missing a thumb?

I'm assuming it's someone to the left of Hanako in Hisao's line of sight, which would be Natsume, Misaki, Naomi, or Ikuno.

It could be someone to the right of her too, I know my eyes may flicker around a room before I settle on something to focus on

Well, in the scene it's pretty clear it's a left-to-right scan - he notices thumbless girl, Hanako, Akio, Shizune, then Misha, which is why I narrowed it down as I did (but, if I'm wrong, devs, please correct me). And if his eyes flicked to the right much at all, he'd have noticed Misha.

You forget that Hisao also sees shelves under the desks where the students keep their books. But there is clearly no shelves in the image. Maybe Hisao took to many of them PILLZ and is seeing things?

Question: Why is the Katawa Shoujo Player Guide only in Japanese? Or is there a English version that I have just missed?

PG was originally made in Japanese and no one cared to translate it.
