I'm curious who wrote which path, who helped with which path...
Suriko has tagged herself as Lilly Writer and Hanako Co-Writer here on the forums, so I was curious about the others, especially Aura, since she's still active after all those years.
Also was there a main writer for Act 1?
Shizune: A22
Emi: Hivemind
Hanako: crud and Suriko
Lilly: Suriko
Rin: me

I also planned Act 1 and wrote a lot of it but I wouldn't call myself "main writer". We all contributed a lot. A22 probably wrote the most in terms of wordcount, because Act 1 is somewhat Shizune-centric and the scenes he wrote were long.

(this is not my question, but from a perverted friend who's not on the forums :lol:)

"Will the artworks from the Dangerous Artbook be released on the shimmie? As I was unable to obtain a physical copy but I would like to see the pictures in a decent (not pictures of the book) quality"

... however, I'm also in agreement with her in wondering if they'll be put on the Shimmie. I know that image 4210 is from the artbook, so there's a possibility?

Sometimes some (guest) artists put their illustrations on pixiv/deviantart/blog and they might get crossposted on shimmie that way. This happened in the case of the image you mention, but as a general rule artbook illustrations won't be uploaded on shimmie.

Not really my job to answer here, but I'm fairly sure Aura is a dude.

This is probably gonna seem a bit out of left field (as it has little to do with the game itself), but may I ask where the reference for the Art Classroom came from?

So there will be no digital release?

Oh, so it was you who wrote Rin path? Cool. I mean - it's the most unusual path of them all.

So... did you plan Rin to be autistic from the beginning or just wanted to make her weird and she just ended up acting autistic?
Is she diagnosed with anything? Aside from acting autistic she also does show signs of Asperger's syndrome.
But considering she's an artist and knowing my few weird artist friends I'm not sure about anything when artists are involved :P

There might, but don't count on that. Dangerous is a bit of a special case in our artbook series.

Rin has been diagnosed for just about every possible mental disorder by internet armchair psychologists. I'm not gonna give any kind of straight answer to this sort of question ever. She is what she is.

Hmm. Okay then. Whole room just looked very familiar to me. Reminded me of the art classroom at my own high school.

How so?

Also, I did see that one of the pictures was by a 4LS member.

Also, I saw that twitter post from VCR:
"So I'm a bit slow but I just learned the theme for the KS artbook was "tasteful erotica"
Would've been nice to know before I drew Hanako taking a dildo in both holes man, I would've drawn something a lot more mild"
Uhhhh :lol: How the hell did that happen?

Dangerous was mostly weee's solo project (there's only her artwork and a few guest pieces) so it's up to her whether she wants to make a digital release or not. There was just a failure in communication between VCR and weee that resulted in the rather humorously off tone guest art.

Ahh, okay. That makes a lot of sense. Also, that's quite a bit of communication failure where instead of "tasteful erotica" it's "hardcore hentai" :lol: That's honestly, really hilarious.

That's pretty fascinating; I've seen convincing arguments that Rin's story is one of her pursuing Hisao (in her own inscrutable way) — and somewhat bumbling it as a good protagonist should.
6. There is a bad end.
VINDICATION! I hate that people have accepted that it's only neutral. To me, it's one of the more heartbreaking things in the game.

Question: What are the (approximate?) ages of Akira, Yuuko, Nurse, Mutou, Meiko, Jigoro, Nomiya, Sae, and Shopkeep?

Both of those are interpretation things, and anyone's interpretation is valid as long as it's plausible.

Akira: mid-twenties
Yuuko: early twenties
Mutou: late forties
Meiko: forties
Jigoro: fifties
Nomiya: late fifties
Nurse: Older than he looks
Sae: ■■■■■■■■
Shopkeep: ∞
