Just because Misha is a lesbian, doesn't mean she's ever actually engaged in any sort of sexual activity. In fact, considering that she's more like a Shizunesexual, it's unlikely she's ever done anything of the sort. I just found this bit of reasoning to be just, really in need of correction.

I was a little surprised about Rin I must admit.

It is a little strange with how 'real' the story is presented and the H-scenes but...for whatever reason sometimes doing drawn pubic hair is just kinda 'hard'. Like it often doesn't look all that natural or good at times and can be distracting towards what is over all a good piece of art work (at least thats what I've heard a few doujin artist say).

One thing I think we're missing here is in Japan its taboo to show pubic hair... for some reason. So that might be why they decided to keep it minimal.

Aura (I think) said in the "Ask!"-Thread that it's simply because the artists didn't like to draw it.
So: artistic reasons - no deeper meaning.

Lily has pubic hair. Plus so far playing her route and Emi's it seems this VN is somewhat censor-proof too as far as genetilia goes.

And btw for those who decide to play the game with adult content on, RULE 34 baby! Grilled chicken and cantoloupe have never been so sexy :mrgreen:

Emi takes care of it, duh.

I was more disturbed by it with Hanako; it seems more out-of-place that someone so shy would keep herself shaved when she has no plans to let pretty much anyone see her right shoulder, let alone her vulva. (It also doesn't help that her CG looks, at least to me, less plausibly "sure it's all 18+" than the other ones >_<) On the other hand, maybe she did it especially for the occasion?

She says she's never been with a man before, and that it feels weird. While not absolute evidence, it implies a contrast

I liked Lilly's pubic hair. It was blonde.
That was kind of cute :3

I'd assume that we've all seen enough porn and hentai to have a pretty good idea about these kind of sex-related issues.
After all, porn is an authentic and realistic representation of human sexuality.

I think my sarcasm detector broke, because it detects something even though you're clearly telling the sensible truth.

I hear the cantoloupes in Shizune's path are the biggest.

OK, all of us who're complaining about the lack of pubic hair have to get the devs invited to some convention, get drunk, and barge into their panel demanding "WHERE'S MY PUBIC HAIR?"

But to be back on topic : As said, artists didn't like to draw them. It is also difficult to draw pubic hair... properly. If full natural, they might be annoying. If partly cut or shaved, why not just get rid of them altogether, since it'd take a similar amount of effort?

Also, Lilly has proper pubic hair in her "naked" sprite, not sure about the sex scene 1. They are trimmed, but they're there.

Textually they all had pubic hair (except Shizune, I think, who just didn't have it mentioned). The artists just hated drawing it, so the references to it in the text were later edited out for most of the paths.
I would suggest against reading too much into whether characters do or do not have hair down here.
