Remake of an old work:

Katawa-Shoujo, developed by Four Leaf Studio, has been released in January 4, 2012.
(Free to download: [link])

I want to thank Four Leaf Studio for giving me the chance to let me contribute my animating skills to their wonderful visual novel.

They are a big inspiration to me.
Not only they created a unique visual novel based entirely from a single picture, but the entire studio went through a lot for 4-5 years to give us a masterpiece without asking anything in return.
That's a lot of dedication, and I really admire them for it, hoping I can do the same.

Thank you 4LS. I had fun working for you guys.

Hanako is beautiful. She is awesome. When I first played this I pick her. She is pretty funny and her backstory is tragic

Hanako's route was my personaly favourite, perhaps because I empathised with her discomfort around other people. Also, her animated Act 2 introduction was my favourite of the five. I WISH there would be another one, maybe set a few years later at the same school with five new girls with disabilities not yet covered. I WISH there were more visual novels that focused on great storytelling and emotion, not over-the-top breasts and too many h-scenes.

Anyone know any other good visual novels like this? Emotional, romantic but not overly-promiscuous?

I'm not the first, nor will I be the last one.

I finished Hanako's story. And I just wanted to know more about the game, checking the blog was probably the best thing I could do.  Finding who the project of creating Kawata Shoujo began, learning more about the people who were part of 4 leaf studio. And how you did your part to create a masterpiece. A lof of talented people work on the visual novel. I'm just glad I'm able to at least say:

"Thank you" for been part of it! Part of 4LS, part of the game. I think without your animations the game wouldn't be the masterpiece it is.  = )

Emi: Heart Breaks
Rin: He shatters into a million pieces.
Hanako: I break
Lilly: Fell on the floor crying
Shizune: Okay..
Misha" Ahahaha breaks a little.

This is how I feel with Katawa Shoujo girls. I cried when I was with Rin!

It's true, kuudere characters are harder to like in general. But I can hardly call rape on that :P . I would prefered another approach to this route, maybe end up with misha, instead of shizune for this route...or something.

That's awesome that you worked with 4LS! This picture is really cool, the eyes are very vibrant and remind me of The Host by Stephanie Meyer, i personally think the book is much better than any of the novels in her Twilight series. Anyways, on the cover of the Host there's an eye that has a bright ring around the pupil which signifies that someone has a sort of "alien spirit" in them. You'd have to read the book to understand, I recommend it if you like reading and enjoy science fiction!

The white circles in their eyes look a bit too aggressive, but otherwise it's great.

Shizune's path was more of a friendship kind of thing, less on the relationship between her and Hisao. Lilly's was the warmest, most romantic too:) Hanako's had the most feels. Rin's messed with my brain the most. Emi's was a sorta smooth ride the a crazy zigzag roller coaster in the last quarter.

so you are the one responsible for the animated cutscenes for katawa shoujo.
I would like to say thank you so much for your hard work! They were pure genius!
I especially liked hanako's and lilly's animations because they represent everything about their character
At first I didn't understand lilly's scene until I played through until the end. Almost brought me to tears man. How she seemed as though she was pleading for someone to stop her from going; lilly's sense of touch really does seem to mean so much more than we realize.
thank you once again for your contribution, I'd love to see more of your work in the future!
