Every time I think of Hanako, I think of the song Amber by Stick To Your Guns. It fits her so well. As for her taste in music, she seems like she'd be into alternative bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, and Gin Blossoms. Lilly is probably into smooth jazz. Misha and Emi both seem like they would love Mindless Self Indulgence. I agree with the other users that say Rin would be into stuff like The Doors and Gorillaz, thos seem to fit her personality pretty good.

I used to listen lots of metal way back when, but now I've mellowed out, usually i listen to blues rock like Led Zepellin or Steppenwolf or Prog Rock like Rush or Genesis and some other timeless classics.

Sitting here, I'm listening to The Reason by Hoobastank, and it's sounding like an anthem for the story of Lilly and Hisao.
The Reason by Hoobastank
Lyrics sourced from here.
---
I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

and the reason is You [x3]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

IMO the theme music for Lilly and Hisao is Train in Vain by The Clash. Go on, listen it.

I think I posted this already (it was only like 5 minutes ago, but I'm over 30 and I sometimes have memory lapses), but This Soundtrack reminded me of KS.

what reminds me the most right now is
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFiNlLt8sJw


i also put the lyrics here, who knows when the vid might get deleted. to me the 2nd verse just screams "iwanako" to me.

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left lone
Cause beyond every bend
is a long blinding end
Its the worst kind of pain I've known

Give up your heart left broken.
And let that mistake pass on
Cause the love that you lost
wasn't worth what it cost
And in time you'll be glad it's gone

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end
and if you need a friend,
there's a seat here along side me.
Trying something means challengind defeat,
Doing something means Victory!

Victory does not need an explanation,
Defeat does not allow one!

Shit... I need to use the search function before I create threads that've been made. Oh well.


"Honey" by Owen Van Larkins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xg2hR-J ... ure=g-vrec

Reminds me of one of the ambient scenes where you're just relaxing.

Jeff Loomis - Sacristy

He is one of the deepest virtuousos I've ever listened to, every piece of his solo work are emotionally fascinating. A tear rolled down my chin when I first heard this piece. And especially this piece reminds me of KS for some reason.

The music that sound most like/makes me think of Katawa Shoujo would be other OST's.
More specifically the "True Remembrance" soundtrack. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4oGwZLJKb4 -
"Yume Miru Kusuri" soundtrack. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQurf8JGcXA&feature=plcp -
As well as part of the "Clannad soundtrack. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-PO3XigiNo -
One that is not a soundtrack would be pretty much anything by "Yiruma". - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmYHpZ-9ibg&feature=fvst -
Those all have the same feel as Katawa Shoujo.
I like helping others, I just hate approaching others.

I have certain songs that remind me of the girls. Slide & Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls remind me of Lilly. Amber by Stick To Your Guns and Down in a Hole by Alice in Chains remind me of Hanako. My Hero by Foo Fighters and Hey Jealousy by Gin Blossoms make me think of Hisao. Thanks to the instafeels, Pink Triangle by Weezer makes me think of Misha.Honor Thy Father by Dream Theater reminds me of Shizune. Bullet with Butterfly Wings reminds me of Kenji for some odd reason. Last, but not least, All I Want by The Offspring and Lounge Act by Nirvana remind me of Akira.
Sadly, I can't think of any songs that remind me of Emi nad Rin.
As for Katawa Shoujo as a whole, I think of This Is More by Stick To Your Guns and Not the One by The Offspring
