So I was just wondering if anyone is planning to put up a walkthrough of the game with all of the text translated online. It would be a good project for someone to pick up....well if they had the time.

And....is there any plans for a States release?
I don't know where, but somewhere on the forums I remember a post saying they emailed Atlus seeing if they would do the game....anything happen after that?

Arigato!
I highly doubt it will ever be availble in English. Just buy Kakera Aosobi, and a swap magic and play it with that. It's mostly voiced so it's not that hard to understand. If you can understand an anime RAW then you'll probably be fine.

You can't understand what they are thinking unless you can read japanese.

Then people need to stop being lazy, waiting for some one else to translate, and pick up a Kanji dictionary, and start studying. I happen to own Kakera Aosobi, and I wouldn't consider myself to great at reading japanese, but I seem to be understanding it just fine.

Well, I don't know almost anythng of japanese, and even with that, I understood some of the arcs in Higurashi Matsuri... excepting Miotsukushi-hen... I still don't know how

Spoiler for Thing that Roll does not understands:


At least someone who has played that arc and understood it, explain, please! Just that little part

That's completely different, until I misunderstood the scene completely.

So thats the reason she was killed

Anyway, she wasn't supposed to be in that world... I guess I have to play that arc again to see if I can understand better...

Mmmmm, Its not that she wasnt supposed to be in that world, but she couldnt been seen by anyone maybe because she had used a lot of her power (Its something I still dont undestand), so in the end she appears and protects takano, maybe someone who had played matsuri and undestood this could help a little more,

I am not sure if they changed it in Kakera Asobi, Hanyuu's stance in the Miotsukushi-hen is different than all her stance from before. In Miotsukushi-hen, the main characters are faced with all sorts of trials (instead of the happy disapprance of Rule X of Matsuribayashi-hen). Hanyuu is there to guide the group as they tackle on the 3 dead ends of fate, instead of joining in with the group. She disappers from Rika becuase she also wanted to teach Rika that hapiness is something that she has to obtain herself, and to develop the confident that Rika can have to live on by herself.

RIGHT ON! *gives thumbs up*

Do you know any good books and sites that may help me read and understand (at least basic) Japanese that you would recommend?

And what version swap magic should I buy to play this game? I REALLY don't feel like buying a Japanese PS2....>_>

EDIT: Oh what type of Japanese writing do they use in the game btw. Thankies. :3

It's pretty much the same in Kakera Asobi, from what I've seen.

Kana + Kanji are used in the game. If you haven't memorized your Hiragana & Katakana yet then I recomend you get those taken care of first. The book "Kana de Manga" is a good way, Iv'e seen people have sucsess. Also, you can get flash cards of Hiragana & Katakana at alot of bookstores. As for Kanji............ That's a much longer and much more difficlut process XD..... I'm pretty sucky with Kanji myself, I probably only know about 100 off hand, out of the 2,000 or so used in japanese, so I'm not really the best person to ask XD, but there is another line of books called "Kanji de Manga". There is also the Rosetta Stone computer program, which I own and I enjoy. Though, this is an instant imersion program, and it helps to already have some understanding. In anycase, you can always fake it like I do and depend on the voiceing XD! Also, I use Swap Magic V3.6 Plus 2-Disc with Magic Slide Tool .

Here is a link to purchase it on Amazon. As you can see it's rather expensive, and I'm very grateful to a very generous relative of mine that got it for me. It is a very good program though and has very fast results. You have to be sharp though, since there is no english. Basically, they show you pictures of stuff and say what it is in japanese, and what the Kanji or Kana is. There is an option to display what they are saying in Romanji, but let's face it, Romanji is pretty useless.

For example, they show you a picture of a cat next to a car and say:

ねことくらま!

Then it's up to you to figure out that (ねこ)Neko means cat and (くるま) Kuruma means car. There is no english or Funringana on the Kanji. You either pick Kana or Kanji.

(The exceptions being like, the exit button says "Exit" in english and stuff like that.)

ah, no wonder it is said that that is the true ending, with hanyuu acting more in context and them having to face all 3 dilemmas instead of wonderful miracles.

But why ruin the surprise? After all, odds are it will be the conclusion arc to season 3.
