Like most of 4LS, he doesn't hang out on the public IRC channel and posts on the public forums only rarely.
This means I might wait a long time for a reply from cpl_crud?

EDIT:
Man, it's hard to find posts in huge threads. Anyway, question to Cpl_Crud (hope he was the writer, that post was from 2007). I just finished Hanako's path. I didn't do the bad ending. It'd be heart breaking .... I am wondering though. Why is Hanako's path shorter than others? Was it planned like that? There wasn't enough ideas to push the story further? It feels like it's cut somewhere before the end and all that is missing is "To Be Continued".
Because in the context of building and releasing climax, it seemed logical to end the story once the main hurdle (i.e., Hanako starting a relationship) had been cleared.

Early versions spent more time exploring the after story, but in an effot to trump the joy of getting Hanako out od her shell I ended up chasing ghosts down corridors. None of those plots really fit with the image of KS, so they were scrapped.


And if you want a fast answer out of me you will habe to find a week when I have more than 5seconds of free time, or else hit me up on my blog. :)

I think I understand why you didn't do it, because like you wouldn't have a second person for her.

What second person? Anyway we ditched idea because it was ultimately an unnecessary subplot.

All of the main characters have a second person by their side. Like Rin and Emi, Hanako and Lilly, and Shizune and Misha.

Unless she would've been a side character, like Miki. ;)

She was never considered for a main character.

Gotcha :) Thank you for your time :)

I think I understand now. When you put it this way, ending Hanako's path earlier makes more sense. When I tried to imagine what could be more after hers "gift" to Hisao, I see how it could be difficult to continue the story.

Yet another question. Sorry if I'm bothering you guys with my constant stream of them. But anywho: who drew the artwork for Emi? Like the facial features and such.

Would they really have a thread devoted to questions if it bothered them so much? :lol: Just don't ask the dumb stuff like "OMG WAI NO MISHA ROUTE?" (FYI, there is a Misha route. It's sealed inside a mysterious box delivered to Kenji during Shizune's route. He never opens it though. :P)
<KeiichiO>: "I wonder what Misha's WAHAHA's sound like with a cock stuffed down her throat..."

At the risk of this being a silly question: Are the CGs in Hanako's route (which i consider the best ones i've seen in the VN so far) done by one particular artist, or were they done by the art team in general?

Does Rin prefer her right foot or her left when doing things, or is she ambidextrous?
Also how does she put her clothes back on after the first H-scene, is she a wizard?

Moekki drew her sprite set and Pimmy the CGs.
