Sure, every artist is influenced by other artists they admire or whatever, and 4LS staff is no different. Specifically for KS, Tatsuki Amaduyu and his partner in crime, Misato Mitsumi were big influences.

<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

New question!
If any of the devs (Such as you, Aura, or Suriko, etc.) Could write a different route, such as say... A Natsume route, who would it star? I personally would do a Naomi route.

I dunno. If I had to write a whole new route, I'd probably come up with a new character for it. Or do Saki route, as per that april fools joke.

I guess this is directed to Suriko; I've been watching Cowboy Bebop recently, and in one episode, Spike happens upon a young blind woman who invites him to drink tea. She has a very motherly sort of relationship to another character, who gave her a music box that is of great significance to the plot. The episode ends in the hospital.

Homage? Inspiration? Huge coincidence?

Oh, as a side note, the song Green Bird from Bebop was used in the Instafeels: Lilly Edition video. So I guess I'm not the only one who made that connection.

If you'd write Saki's route, who'd write Rika?
Probably hivemind :lol:

Heya there. Haven't been around in a while. I have a question, and I don't know if it has been answered before. If it has, I apologize. 200 pages is a lot to sift through.

I'm a big fan of the character Akira Satou, Lilly's older sister, and I'm curious as to what developer(s) are most responsible for the conception of and development of her.

It's almost completely Suriko, since Akira was designed for Lilly path.

Ahh. I figured that was most likely, but I didn't want to assume, given that Akira shows up in multiple routes.

Thank you.

Hmm.... let's go with this,
I'm asking a similar question to what TacticalBacon asked, were there any specific date sims that inspired KS? Like Amagami for example.

On the website, it says that Katawa Shoujo was inspired by/started by/ the actual idea for it came from:
'an omake page from the doujin Schuppen Harnische by RAITA of doujin circle Zettai Shoujo, detailing character art for a dating sim he dubbed “Katawa Shoujo.”'

Like actual dating sims? No. A couple of visual novels had some influence (some people mix the two, or use the terms interchangeably, but it's important to realize the distinction)

In what sort of time frame should we expect to see 4LS release the Imperfect Spectrum digital edition?
