Katawa Shoujo Music Index and Table of Contents

Post by Mirrormn » Fri Mar 02, 2012 4:29 am

Having been very emotionally moved by Katawa Shoujo's soundtrack, after my first 100% completion, I decided to replay the entire game with special attention to the use of the soundtrack to augment and compliment the gameplay. As I went along, I documented a) what scenes each musical selection is used in, with a brief description of the action taking place at the time; and b) what music plays in each scene, in order. The result of this documentation is a complete index and table of contents of Katawa Shoujo's music.

Spoilers Ahead! The Index, in particular, contains synopses of almost every event in the game, so if you're worried about spoilers, you should stop reading this post now.

*Generally, there are many mundane situations in which no music plays: at the beginning of scenes before the narrative direction is established, while Hisao contemplates things, as the mood of a scene is changing, while the action is set in an area with no leitmotif (most notably, the city near Yamaku), during short interruptions in conversation, etc. In some cases, however, silence is used purposefully to underscore a profound lack of understanding between Hisao and other characters. This is especially prevalent in Rin's route, as Rin is a very difficult person to understand, but it occurs at other times as well. I have tried to document only the instances in which the lack of music is particularly meaningful in this way.

This is, of course, a imprecise and ambiguous endeavor. Still, given the thematic importance of silence in Rin's route, I thought it was worthwhile. I'm sure I've missed some such silences, and have omitted others as not being meaningful or long enough. I only decided to start documenting this while playing Rin's route, which came after Hanako, Shizune, and Emi. Thus, only instances from Rin and Lilly's routes are documented (so far).

Post by Mirrormn » Sat Mar 03, 2012 12:26 am

Some interesting observations I had while creating this:

Red Velvet never plays in Shizune's route. Aside from the very first scene in Act 1, Cold Iron never plays in Shizune's route either.

There are many songs that never play in Hanako's route: Romance in Andante II, Shadow of the Truth, and Friendship. High Tension and Hokabi also don't play after Act 1 in Hanako's route.

As if to make up for this, Painful History is almost entirely exclusive to Hanako's route; the only way to hear it otherwise is in a single scene in Lilly's route.

Breathlessly only plays in Emi's route if you stay behind to talk to her mom when she leaves the dinner table.

Ease is pretty common in every route except Rin's. In Rin's route, Ease only plays (after Act 1) during the gallery exhibition. In addition, after Act 1 in Rin's route, Hokabi only plays during a brief meeting with Emi in the hall.

On the other hand, Generic Happy Music is actually more common in Rin's route (3 occurrences) than it is in Lilly's (2 occurrences) route.

Passing of Time only plays in its entirety in a single scene: the beginning of Proof of Existence, at the good end of Rin's route.

Of course, Sarabande from BWV1010 only plays in Lilly's route, and Parity, Standing Tall, and Concord are rare after Act 1 outside of Rin's, Emi's, and Lilly's routes, respectively.

To Become One is generally associated with cheesy sex scenes, but it is not used as such in every route. In Hanako's route, it only plays the first time Hisao attends a tea party in Lilly's room. In Rin's route, it only plays as Nomiya is reciting a poem during an art club meeting.

Almost every route ends with a different song; out of 13 possible endings, there are 10 different musical selections:
  • Kenji's route ends with To Become One
    Emi's route ends with either Aria de l'Etoile (good) or Shadow of the Truth (bad)
    Hanako's route ends with Comfort (good), Nocturne (neutral), or Caged Heart (bad)
    Lilly's route ends with either Concord (good) or Comfort (bad)
    Rin's route ends with Aria de l'Etoile (good), Friendship (neutral), or <Uncomfortable Silence>* (bad)
    Shizune's route ends with either Ease (good) or Shadow of the Truth (bad)
*Yes, I count <Uncomfortable Silence> as a musical selection. See the end of the Index for more explanation.

Although Friendship plays in every route except Kenji's and Hanako's, it is used with a different mood each time:
  • In Emi's route, it is used to represent relief and togetherness, while Emi finally lets down her emotional barriers as she opens up to Hisao in the graveyard.
    In Lilly's route, it is used to represent desperate longing, as Hisao races to the airport to catch Lilly before her plane for Scotland leaves.
    In Rin's route, it is used in the neutral ending to represent painful separation, as Hisao is unable to (or refuses to) find the right words to salvage his relationship with Rin.
    In Shizune's route, it is used almost comically, when Kenji takes off his glasses and reveals his Shaman's eyes.
Raindrops and Puddles is the most common musical selection, occurring on 50 different occasions throughout the game. Fripperies is second with 47 occurences.

No Recovery, in Act 1, is the only scene without any music. It's very short, though.

Underwater and a Maple with a Name contains the longest period of time with no music; the entire trip into the forest and back is completely silent. It was during this scene that I realized <Uncomfortable Silence> needed to be given its own listing.

Little Wing, in Lilly's route, has the largest number of musical selections, with 11 pieces playing throughout the scene (although High Tension plays twice, so it's only 10 distinct selections). A Brief History of Thyme (Lilly), Up, Down, and Up Again (Emi), and Throwing Balls (Act 1) share second place with 8 selections each.

I guess it did, in retrospect. It didn't feel like a lot of work, because I was going to replay the entire game anyway. Then again, I'd estimate my speed at getting through the game was reduced by 25-50% due to having to continuously stop and make cross-referenced notes. Still, it was a rewarding experience, because having to summarize every section of every scene forced me to stop to consider and fully understand the plot points contained therein.

You can also gain some further insight into the story as you play it just by paying close attention to the music. For example, Breathlessly is the musical selection as Misha comes into Hisao's room looking for comfort. But it continues to play even as you have sex with her, which underscores the fact that you're doing something wrong and not really comforting her at all. Similarly, in Hanako's sex scene, Painful History starts playing when she shows you her scars, but it continues playing throughout the entire sexual encounter. It's part of the reason that scene feels "wrong" as well.

Those are just the obvious examples, however. One thing that really surprised me is that in Things You Hate in Rin's route, there is a difference in musical selection between the two good options. Both "I need to understand" and "It doesn't matter" lead you to the same subsequent story route, but if you choose "It doesn't matter", Shadow of the Truth plays while you leave her in the atelier, whereas if you choose "I need to understand", no music plays as you leave, even though it gives you the same text. This has forced me to conclude that "I need to understand" is actually the "better" option... cause who wants to walk away from the girl you love while Shadow of the Truth plays? -.-

Another good example is Lilly's route. Lilly was the last route I documented, and I played it immediately after Rin. As I've noted a few times now, Rin's route uses silence in a rather creative way, to underscore the lack of understanding between Hisao and Rin. It was so prevalent in Rin's route that I had to make an official category for <Uncomfortable Silence>, and then throughout Rin's route I had to carefully examine every point at which no music was playing to determine whether that lack of music was meaningful enough to qualify as <Uncomfortable Silence>. This hyper-sensitivity to silence carried over when I started playing Lilly's route. And lo and behold: in Lilly's route, there are occurrences of <Uncomfortable Silence> as well! It actually highlights the three points in Act 4 where the upcoming twist of Lilly's permanent departure for Scotland is foreshadowed. When Akira remarks that she will be leaving for Scotland, and Lilly acts guarded and unreadable for the rest of the night; when Hisao awakes violently in bed next to Lilly and then thinks about how Lilly seems to be pressing their relationship unusually fast; and when Lilly swears after being knocked over by Kenji, and Hisao thinks to himself that the expletive couldn't have been elicited just because of falling down. These three scenes are something you might just gloss over on first reading (I know I did), but if you pay very close attention to the music - or, rather, the lack of it - in those three scenes, you're really tipped off that something you don't understand is occurring. It's brilliantly subtle foreshadowing on the part of the soundtrack.

There were a lot of other situations where paying close attention the soundtrack either helped me understand the intended mood or interpretation of certain scenes or actions, but I can't remember them all anymore. Oh well.

P.S.: Unfortunately, as noted in the Index, the <Uncomfortable Silence> category is incomplete. I still need to redo Hanako, Emi, and Shizune and look for instances of <Uncomfortable Silence> in those routes. It's much more difficult to pick them out because, in my view, not every silence is an <Uncomfortable Silence>, and due to the way the game gradually fades out the music instead of stopping it abruptly in most cases where a silence occurs, using Skip Mode will basically just skip over every silence without you noticing anything.

I feel pretty certain that Shizune must have some when Hisao is failing to communicate with her, and Emi probably has some when she refuses to share her feelings. Hanako I'm not so sure about, but it's worth another playthrough anyway.

If I remember correctly then "It doesn't matter" is actually the better option because it is the only way to get the good ending.

I have to say you did a very good job on doing this, and it shows how much the soundtrack actually contributes to the game. Great job man! I always thought that Raindrops and Puddles was the most played tune in the game, although I could never actually confirm it.

Two errors to point out however:
Under Caged Heart you put Self-Destruction twice for Rin's route, despite it actually being in Reverse Escapism
Under Without Breathing, Without a Sound you didn't include Romance in Andante II

No, both "It doesn't matter" and "I need to understand" lead to the same route; Hisao leaves the atelier with a terse but controlled ultimatum. This route doesn't necessarily lead to the good ending - to get there, you still need to make the right choice during Rin's exhibition - but your choice between "It doesn't matter" and 'I need to understand" does not affect that later choice in any way. As far as I know, there's not even any alternate text between the two choices (except, of course, right after the choice occurs). But one has Shadow of Truth, and the other does not. Now that I think about it, this might be a programming bug, to be honest.

Thanks for noticing these errors! They're fixed now... but there are, doubtless, many more :( Hopefully they will all be spotted and fixed eventually.
