who are the writers?


The information of the illustrators and the writers are still unknown. I think there are three candidates for the illustrators.
Shouna Mitsuishi
Chikotamu
Narumi Yuu

hmm
well the premise does seem a bit sci-fi esque.

Mostly, it says they want to try different approach for this game compared to their previous work, and hoped that fans will like it.

Not impressed at all with the picture on the main page. It looks like, well, just like almost every other VN. Bring Nanao Naru back! D;

umm... she isn't exclusive to minori... similar to how the character designer of Gunslinger Girl did Bittersweet Fools.
i'm intrigued by the "dark romance" aspect of this. I think it's safe to assume that Makoto Shinkai will make the opening animation again.

I never said she was exclusive. I just assumed that since it seems like this story is based off of Chihiro's story that the character art would be the same.

Speaking of that, can anybody provide an accurate translation of this since my Japanese fails?

She became freelance after D.C.

Is she still working for Circus ? Or has she moved to another studio ?
Da Capo 2's style doesn’t seems like hers.

They only give that short synopsis and that introduction picture only ?

From the cover picture in Comptiq's site, they also didn't mention the headline anywhere in the cover ?

The site has been updated. Not Nanao Naru nor Aida Yuu, they get a new illustrator ?

Some characters reminds me of Touhou's Sakuya and Meirin.
Anyone get the article from Comptiq ?


Unfortunately the article from Comptique doesn't have the information about the illustrators nor the script writers.

Not much to expect for now, except that it will also probably feature good character designs and soundtrack music.

Based on the title, it seems like the story that Chihiro from ef wrote! I'm quite excited if it is, because her story seemed quite interesting, it just wasn't elaborated on enough, but that's probably because they didn't plan to make a whole game out of it. Well, here's to hoping that's what it's based on!

Expecting a beautiful art from this. I wonder if Nanao Naru will be responsible for character design again.
