Yamaku is entirely fictional.
Hmm ... maybe I'm going off topic ... and showing signs of ignorance ... but do such places for disabled people, where they can come to terms with their condition and learn how to live the life or manage everyday routines, exits?
They do. There are schools (and other institutions) for disabled, and even schools specially for blind, or deaf people.

I realized soon after making the post that it's not really something that I have the right to be questioning.

The characters just were so amazing and I feel as if Emi in my eyes is seriously one of the most memorable characters in general. I'd love for there to be a second game as I said before involving these characters or even brand new material. As long as it's coming from you guys
From the FAQ:
Q: Will there be a fandisc, sequel, or prequel to Katawa Shoujo?
A: No. There will be no other work in any way related to Katawa Shoujo.
Note that this does not mean we won't create another game(s), just that any we do make wouldn't be related to KS in any way.
that really is a shame, as in it's own unique way KS really has found a way to become more than just a joke where 99.9% of all other ideas like this end up petering out long before completion of even a rough sketch of how a game would work, let alone seeing the light of day as a fully finished, polished product.
Exactly. Everything about this game or novel however you see it has a lasting impact. It's not one of those things you just go through and forget about it when you're done. I found out about it maybe 3 days ago? And I've completed every story arc and currently am working on Emi again for the third time. The characters and the story just sucks you in and you can't stop. It really is a shame like you said because this was a masterpiece and it does deserve some sort of sequel.

A: No. There will be no other work in any way related to Katawa Shoujo.
No further information will be released until such time that we decide to release it.

So we know they've effectively "finished" with KS, but new projects are possible.Crossovers perhaps, or maybe even a KS character somehow ending up with a cameo into another project?

I had far more dreadful thoughts about what is troubling Emi. When I found out, it seemed so simple and natural. I was reminded once again, actually surprised, how simple these things are. They tend to linger in ones mind, but spoken they suddenly lose that heavy feeling and ... erm, "hugeness"? It's really more of a trouble in ones mind than on the outside :)

Would you guys possibly be interested in having orchestral/chamber arrangements of some of the songs for a next project? I made four of these arrangements for KS up until now:

Where did the idea for one of the song's name 'Wiosna' come from? I was utterly surprised to see a word from my language in this game. Is the creator Polish or Japanese?

I believe it's a team of people. From all over the place, so there's a good chance of both.
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.
