Before you ask, the book is exclusive to the event. Only way to get it is to attend and buy one from the guys.

Oh, awesome! Stuff looks really neat, looks like they did a real good job on it. Hope they can get into Summer Comiket, I too would be interested to see more doujin things in the future.

Well thanks for telling us about it then. ;_;

Or maybe you're holding back some copies that you're going to put on ebay. Hmm... But this sounds cool, it's actually exciting for me even though I don't have anything to do with it (other than being a fan). Not happy with how Rin is barely visible on the booklet cover art but at least it's made up for by Shizune and her zettai ryouiki.

My Bus pass doesn't go direct to Tokyo, so I doubt I'll make it. It would probably help if I lived in Japan or even owned a bus pass but that's just the hand life gave me, what makes it worse is that life actually gave me two and I still can't get there.

I like this post just for Shizune's glorious thigh highs.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Sad that the book's an exclusive, but I'm sure scans of it will show up eventually, anyway. And if they make more copies for Comiket, then it'll definitely appear online before long, lol. I'm more interested in getting a pressing of the full KS anyway, here's hoping to release soon!

The chibis are very reminiscent of mikeinel/manyakis's style, but I'm sure any of the dev artists could have done it just as easily.

I can't hear this update over the sound of

HOLY SHIT! FIRST OFFICIAL ART OF HIDEAKI FUCKING EVER!

I can now look forward to the project knowing that He's not just a figment of fandom.

One more quick note about the cover art:

Shouldn't they not be wearing shoes, but wearing those comfy-looking Japanese school slippers?

okay, how fucking cool is it that a game that came from a doujin is now getting some major stuff coming out like this? seriously awesome; grats to all the devs. hope you guys get a ton of new fans from this.

also: any chance of the new art showing up in the shimmie sometime soon? that long picture with all the cast really needs to be my new desktop. :mrgreen:

...dude. Hideaki first showed up in a screenshot from one of the blog entries. people started guessing he was a trap right after that. :lol:

Emi = Hanako > Lilly > Rin >>>>>>> Shizune
amazing how preference changes now that the game's actually out.
Akira/Hanako for the win. Meiko/Nurse for even more win. Miki/Misha for win that goes BEYOND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

We've had this discussion internally a while back. We decided that uwabaki look lame. Not every school uses them, either (although the large majority do), so we decided Yamaku doesn't.

(I guess it should be noted we actually forgot about them to begin with, so the decision ended up being "is it worth changing a couple of the CGs and design documents to account for it, or just have Yamaku not use them". we decided on the latter)
