The uh... soundtrack, has been changed for something less sensitive. Konami didn't like me using their songs.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


...Anyway, awesome game is awesome, although the final boss has a rather underwhelming amount of health and only one form. Kind of a difficulty nosedive for people trying to no-death-run Kenji Must Die.

Now time to figure out this "secret boss" and the secret cheat >_>

I didn't balance Iwanako properly. You can either cheese her with mail crash with no effort, or fight her the hard way with a different sub-weapon.

The latter is recommended, especially if you enjoy fighting Dio Brando.

Iwanako disabled the main character with a single letter then forced him to go through Act 1 for 5 years, I thought it was only fitting.

This... This has got to be the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I've seen many, MANY derivatives, of varying qualities. But this takes ALL the cake to date. You show me the awesome of Castlevania combined with the awesome that is Kenji. I only played through Katawa Shoujo once, but now I want to go play the other four characters.

You get all the love, all the respect. I'm pretty sure gaming in general owes you a favor for something this silly-awesome. Happy New Year ;)

After the knife throwing part, I got glitched where my character couldn't be seen at all and had to restart. good game otherwise.

will look into this bug.

I think if your FPS is low your character start glitching into random places. Maybe if I cut down on the graphics a little, things will turn out better.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Probably the most amazing thing I've ever played on Newgrounds.
