Are elements of the visual novel going to end up in Setsubun?

Also, woot on more of that being written.

Oh yeah, that's right. She isn't an OC, is she? I had forgotten Kaisos had said that.

But, if she was just a normal girl before...who was she?

And would we know her if we were only familiar with the canon series up through Endless Eight (as in, she's not Sakanaka or Sasaki, among others)?

Also, Aebliss, I am very happy to hear you'll be writing more Setsubun.

Don't listen to his posing. I'd definitely describe them as 'demons', though 'youkai' would probably be a better word.

Definitely not an OC. The only OCs in this are extremely minor characters. And Director Koizumi, I suppose, but he's a walking plot device, not a character.

No characters appear in this who have not appeared in canon at some point before or during E8. I'm not that much of an asshole.

What can I say? The time has come to continue. Not tonight, I fear - I need to re-read a bit and get into the proper mindset. But this week, I am fairly certain. And remember, dear readers: the end is nigh ...

God damn it, I was joking. I hate nonverbal communication.

Anyway, when you have time, it'd be awesome if you could catch up. I value your opinions a lot, as I do think you're a better writer than I am, so...

He said write-off, I presume he meant a contest to see who's the better writer. Not fighter.

I linked to one of the reports in a recent post on this page.

I'd love to, but I do have to work on the upcoming anthology as well. I'll try.

Ah. You were talking about re reading your own stuff.

Much clearer now.

Wow, more Setsubun? This month is starting off awesome.

I liked you better when I thought you were a corpse... Shut up.

Found it, and I think I actually read one of those bits way back when.

Yeah, Youkai was kinda more what I had in mind. I just didn't really know the correct term.

Have you read this yet?

I had read that before, though now I think I understand more of it, given what you and Kogetsu have said.

I'm gonna have to make a list of all canon, female characters introduced in the series up through Endless Eight, though. This is seriously stumping me.

Edit: Alright, I couldn't find anyone that I thought could be Midori, so I must be missing something. However, going over the poem Kaisos posted, I have come to a few conclusions on the nature of Midori.

Spoiler for Theory of Midori:


Speculating is fun!

I kind of have an inkling of an idea of what the true identity of Midori is. I haven't come up with specifics; I still need to re-read all of the green scenes to piece together what my idea would imply in those situations.

Yeah, I definitely need to reread from the beginning. I'm sure there's loads of hidden meaning in every green scene. I'll report when I have a better idea of what's going on.

Well, if Kaisos had his way, you would be reading loads of hidden meaning in just about every scene, with the greater parts hiding in the Interludes and Green Scenes. And probably most of what has been written from

I like snow.

PoV.

Wait.

Oh dear. She's back.

You know, I'm beginning to think that Midori really is Kyonko. I had never liked the theory before, but looking back now, there's much evidence to support it. Plus, she's the only girl in the whole game who we know has a father, which fits the poem. It also fits with Kyonko being the main heroine.
