how nobody ask this before...
:oops: (a tipical ask from a bit pervy fujoshi who no likes common pairings)
"I wanted to write a Kenji path, but was shot down due to technical issues." said Losstarot (Guest Art by Kamifish) in the blog long time ago.(July 24, 2009)
what was the original "path" of Kenji? i have the heartilly (i wrote this right?) who all that little hints and that strange-awesome scene without glasses is a hint of part of "his path",same with the rooftop scene,the bath scenes and even when he appears, enter to his room and want eat pizza with him(with Hisao money, of course)in the Shizune´s path. finally in Shizune path exist a kind of "Kenji friendship path"like bonus im really curious about how he was in the begin and how would be engaged with Hisao. was friendship route, love route (why not? more breaking barrriers in this kind of games) or both?

First of all, I'm still having trouble accepting that this game is really out after all this time. Many props to everyone involved in the project and congratulations to all of the KSDevs for seeing this through!

That said, I was wondering if the concept of writing culturally Japanese characters as English authors was ever an issue. Did you decide from the get-go that you would refrain from using honorifics (e.g. san, chan, kun, etc.) to produce more natural sounding speech? I can't recall, but I also believe there might have been a few English idioms that found their way into the game. Did you have someone advising on Japanese language/culture?

A mighty thanks to all y'all that came together to bring us such a beautiful story. Especially without charging us a thing for it....still feel a bit guilty about that >.>

For the "teenage girly artists". Did your parents/siblings ever walk in while you were drawing explicit content for KS, or otherwise discover this? And if it happened/isn't too personal, how did that go?

Also, which members of 4LS made it all the way from the beginning to the end of the project?

I have a question about a scene in Act 1:

I saw the scene name as Nc5xb3.... is there any meaning to it? or it's just a glitch? (Im just confirming because i like finding hidden messages or connections)

BTW, I'm new here, it seems that there is no introduction thread here (or maybe there is, i don't know, do you know)?, DeathkaiserG, DKG for short :D

It is a reference to chess, as Hanako plays it a lot

Specifically, it means "Knight at c5 captures the piece at b3". Or I think it does; my chess notation is pretty rusty.

Either way it is, we are not going to tell you.
Obviously, I wasn't asking that. It's just that after finishing the game with the Rin and Hanako endings, I haven't been able to stop thinking about what I think happens afterwards. I was just wondering if the writers had their own ideas, not asking to share, or if they stopped thinking about the story once they were done.

I still like this. It is most definately not "real" though, just a possibility.

Haha, you like it? It's horror for a "happy end" guy like me.

Also cpl_crud, i saw quite a few people, both here and in other places, ask for some more fluff in Hanako's route and especially her ending. Either an "epilogue" scene after the credits or some more talking before she gives him her "gift" would probably do it. It seems many found the ending too sweet to be so quick. It's like being given a slice of cake and only be allowed to give it a bite.

Is there any chance an unavoidable update to the game could contain a few more lines for us Hanako fans?

I did Hanako's Act 4, and it's not happening.

I'm kind of surprised people are asking for additional content...isn't it more or less too late to continue working on it?

Are the songs in the animated videos in the jukebox/soundtrack? Or are they remixed versions? I was watching Shizune's video, and it seemed like a less lighter version of the Student Council theme.

How large (length and girth) is Hisao's penis?

Is it larger than Emi's old boyfriends?
