(I tried to search the boards with different terms ( hanakisou/hana ki sou/花帰葬 etc) but couldn't find anything about this game....but if there already is a hanakisou thread somewhere, I'm sorry >_< please close/delete/something else this thread)

official site:
http://www.prot.co.jp/psp/hanakisou/

story:
The Prophet spoke of a day when the taking of human lives will lead to the end of the world, destroyed by an unending winter and a snow that covers the earth. Only by killing Kuroto, the harbinger of destruction, can the world be saved - and the only one who can do that is Hanashiro, the Savior. But when they meet, they discover that neither wants the role he has been given - and as they grow closer, they realize that neither wants to live in a world where only one of them can survive. But how can they overcome this fateful prophecy and their opposing roles in it? The last winter is fast approaching....

ps2 opening:


Apparently it's not a dating sim/otome/bl thing... so I suppose it'd be more adventure + friendshippish?


Today I found out that yesasia cancelled my order for "Last Escort-club Katze" since they can't find it anywhere anymore T_T
So from the money they refunded, I decided to order Hanakisou (the psp version, hopefully it really is fully voiced)...



Even though I know very little about the game ( just that story, opening movie + vague people saying vague stuff about it) I was quite intrigued by it and I've been eying it for a while.
Something about the song, the idea of eternal winter and just the darkness of it all...make it seem like the perfect winter/cold, drab weather game ( snuggled up with a mug of hot chocolate of course ^_^).

Has anyone played it yet?
What are your thoughts about it?
Sorry for short/slow responses...

RSI sucks lol:p

I would definitely recommend this game because of the great music LOL.
If you are wondering what kinda world this game would be, I would definitely urge you to get the OST (especially the orchestral one), because the BGMs just match so so so so well lol.

As for the plot, I'd say it might be confusing at first? Because while the game seems to be giving you a lot of reasons why things are happening a certain way, you have to go further into the game before some of the things are made clear to you (or at least giving you enough information to figure out what is going on). As far as endings go, there isn't a "canon" ending (at least in my opinion I don't think there is one), but I won't spoil you the reason why that is so hahaha. I wouldn't say this game is the happy happy joy joy type of game, it could go really emo in some parts, but then there are times where you feel that somethings are hopeful lol.

Anyway, I'd say play through this lol and enjoy the world of Hanakisou 8D.

LOL IM ALMOST OUTTA THE OTOGE WORLD, AND IM SLOWLY DRIFTING AWAY FROM THE GAMING WORLD TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 8D
...and this all happened because there isn't an RPG that's as good as Nier hahaha.


Oh right, and join my 1 meal a day club for the lol 8D.

I'm so sorry for this really late reply >_<

After reading your post, I ended up ordering it :D
I can pick it up at my local post office on Monday XD ( I could've got it yesterday, but I wasn't home to collect the parcel :( ).
I really can't wait to start playing it!

And I figured it'd be a bit more emo lol... but like you said, the hopeful bits might balance all that.
I'm not sure what a "canon" ending is though...

Anyway, once I've played through some routes I'll come and report back ^_-

Oh a "canon" ending is like a "true" ending. Like an ending that the writers of the story would like you to "believe" in as to what truly happened at the very very end.
In some cases, this ending could negate all the other routes, but it doesn't necessarily has to be so lol.

Since there are multiple endings in Hanakisou, there are "some" endings that might seem more "right" than others, or makes more sense as to what really would have happened, so that's why I mentioned it lol. But again, as I said, I don't believe in there's a "canon" for it lol.

Oooh okay.

I got the game yesterday!
I adore the music in it lol. I can't seem to find a place online that sells the ost though T_T ( well...any that accept paypal and aren't completely in a Japanese:p)

I do need to keep my dictionary close-by to understand this game (and even then it's still difficult for me)...
but I like that you get to make a lot of choices ^_^
And I like that you can rewind to any point in the game regardless of the choices you've made.

That's all I can say about it for now haha. I've only played for one hour so far.

I know that this game has really good musics, but because I heard that this is a BL game, I don't want to play it.
So, it not dating game? Is it just a visual novel with some of boys friendship story or more?
