I think that was probably the most clever most trolling part of it. All those new characters and not a single name or bit of info to go with them.

Although we do have Orie. :D


Anyway, I fully look forward to KS3 and hope they keep the Haunted House idea and the clown.

Yeah, that was a pretty evil touch. But I still have no doubt that fans will figure out some way of giving them the Rika and Saki treatment.

You know, I actually like the Katawa Shoujo 2 logo. It makes the logo maker in me go gaga with how simple and elegant it is, yet still conveys the "2" in the title.

Also, I'd rather have Katawa Shoujo 4, 3 was disappointing with the 3-colored endings. If you were going to give us choices in the previous games why'd you have to railroad us into endings that are just palette swaps with each other?! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!!!!!! :x

It was inevitable, nothing can beat the first one. What a shame. :cry: But hopefully 3rd will be good. :D

Yes? No? :D

Anyway, all these new characters? If there was to be a KS2 it'd be better to just start with a brand new cast. Let Hisao get on with his life.

The interesting thing about this is: 4LS often stated there won't be a sequel, and if you read between the lines of this blog post, it seems some of the reasons for that snuck into it.
One day I'll put more than 15 minutes of work into an avatar. One day.

So I have to wonder if you could have imported old save data. You know continue on with the girl you picked last time. Or would it treat the Kenji end as canon? Or they could make Hisao an antagonist and ignore all his charecter development from the first game, instead making him a Wesker knock off.

Never saw that before... I'd play it! If there was one thing KS lacked, it was zombie mecha.

I know it's a joke, but Kenji wouldn't be taking care of Hisao after he fell off the roof?
Now the question is...did Hisao just not want him around because he's "bad news", did Kenji go off somewhere/was he expelled, or is Kenji just a dick/doing Kenji things?
Or maybe I've assumed too much.

Hah, mean prank fellas. :D
The one armed girl is kinda cute though.... :oops:
p.s.
Seriously, the art is exceptional for just a prank, it's pity that it will not be used in a game.
